  • Whitney Houston’s disastrous comeback tour is still going, and at a show in Denmark recently, hundreds of disappointed fans actually walked out on her performance. Says a critic who attended the show:

  • Nick Jonas is apparently so worried about his tween pop star power fading that he tweeted his airline arrival and asked fans to meet him at the airport, telling them the time and gate. As a Sun writer puts it: “He should tweet his address so I can go round and tell him to get a grip.” [TheSun]
  • Christie Brinkley says she had to give her daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, some “tough love” after Joel took an overdose of pills last year: “Your job as a parent is to listen. And to dole out as much love as you can. That includes tough love. I told Alexa, ‘You got yourself worked into such a tizzy. You need to examine that, you need to seek professional advice.'” [People]
  • “She’s funny. She’s really – I think what it is – and I don’t want to rinse away the romance with some incredibly acute analysis, and I’m probably too befuddled and cockeyed with it all to even offer that – but: I’m quite able, I think, to seduce people. So usually I’d be like, right then, oh good, that person seems to be spellbound, I can get on with the rest of my day. But with her – I mean I love her, in a really pure way – she’s a beautiful person, funny and gentle and sweet. But she’s so demanding! You know that programme I Love Lucy? It’s like that round my house. A lot of the time it’s mental. Proper handful. It’s very diverting. That woman can put on several voices that mean I have to stop what I’m doing.”-Russell Brand, on Katy Perry [Guardian]
  • A source claims that Robert Pattinson is concerned that Kristen Stewart’s controversial comments as of late will harm his career in some way: “He’s worked far too hard to get where he is to let it all come crashing down because of someone else’s actions,” says the source, “He’s distancing himself from Kristen more and more. He says, ‘If she wants to ruin things for herself, then let her! But she won’t be dragging me down with her!'” [ShowbizSpy]

  • Gwen Stefani says she enjoys being in London, as she’s able to avoid much of the paparazzi frenzy that follows her when she lives in L.A.: “I don’t drive when I’m there and I like that. It’s a different lifestyle to be able to walk to the little village and get milk. I take Kingston to the gym with me, with no nanny or assistant and that would be very rare in Los Angeles – that I could actually go somewhere on my own. Things can get out of hand with the paparazzi, so I don’t feel safe.” [ShowbizSpy]
  • Anna Paquin says she came out as bisexual in order to lend her voice to a PSA for the True Colors Fund: “I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about — and frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them. So when I was asked to participate in that PSA, it was just obvious. ‘Well, of course I will’.” [RadarOnline]

  • “They had a purpose. It was important for documenting what black people were doing. At the time, some people were horrified because they felt I was posturing as a man. But my rural background always included hunting and fishing. I was strong with firearms but proved I could also be feminine.”-Pam Grier, on blaxploitation films. [LATimes]
  • Miley Cyrus says she doesn’t really know what a normal life is, because she grew up with a celebrity for a father: “I didn’t really know what a ‘normal’ life was. So when people ask me if I miss it, you can’t really miss anything you don’t know. I never really was just a kid, I guess.” [ShowbizSpy]
