GOSSIP 2 GO 9/1350 SAYS KANYE IS A STAR BECAUSE OF HIM
I feel like Kanye West is successful because of me," he said. "After 50 Cent, [hip-hop fans] was looking for something non-confrontational, and they went after first thing that came along. That was Kanye West, and his record took off."
"He puts together witty phrases and he's a great talent as a producer, but I still don't know who Kanye West is when I listen to him," 50 said recently in Miami. "By listening to the record, I don't know who he is — I know he's been in a car accident, that's what I know."(READ IN FULL)
I'LL BE BACK...NO I'LL BE IN BACK OF YOU
DAVID Pecker — the supermarket tabloid publisher who made a deal two years ago with Arnold Schwarzenegger worth up to $8.1 million — has been spending additional cash amounts to suppress potential embarrassments to the California governor.
In was revealed last month that Pecker paid $20,000 for the silence of a woman who allegedly had an affair with the former bodybuilder, plus $1,000 to the woman's friend.
Yesterday, The Los Angeles Times reported that Pecker also bought a 1983 Playboy video, "Carnival in Rio," hosted by Schwarzenegger, who in one scene dances with three women in sequined thongs and bikini tops.
"At one point, he grabs a dancer's buttocks; she immediately clasps his wrists and pushes his hands away," the Times reported.
"You know something," Schwarzenegger tells the camera. "After watching the [dancers] shake it, I can absolutely understand why Brazil is totally devoted to my favorite body part — the ass."
The newspaper has seen copies of two contracts Pecker's American Media signed in 2003 with Thomas Wells of Los Angeles. In the first, Wells agreed, for $500, to "provide AMI with information regarding the Arnold Schwarzenegger tape." In the second, Wells agreed, for $1,500, to hand over his copy of the video and never again talk about it.
Pecker — who publishes The National Enquirer, Star magazine and The Globe — may have been unaware that copies of the video were already being sold on the Internet.
Wow,Arnold's favorite body part is the ass...that explains 2 things 1) why he cheats on "skeletor" and 2)Why he's in office,there's asses everywhere.

IT'S not often you see a hitchhiker in tony Palm Beach — especially a famous one. But hard-partying actor Colin Farrell was spotted stumbling backward on the side of the road with his thumb stuck out, reports The Post's Braden Keil. "We couldn't believe it was him," said our eagle-eyed female spy, who drove by, then picked up the "Alexander" star in the wee hours. "He looked really wasted." Our source and her male acquaintance drove Farrell to the Breakers — the plush hotel where the lusty leprechaun was registered as Irish literary icon James Joyce. Farrell invited the two up to his room. They declined.
McGREEVY GETS McFREAKY
FORMER New Jersey Gov. and "Gay American" Jim McGreevey is so over his ex, former aide Golan Cipel. McGreevey, whose affair with Cipel caused him to step down as governor last year, was having a romantic dinner Sunday night at Maroons in Chelsea on West 16th Street. "I don't know who the guy is, but he was blond-haired, blue eyes, nice build — a very attractive typical Chelsea guy," said our source.
I say good for him,we need more "tops"in office.
It's really hard to get the name bitch on fashion week but it seems Kimora has won that prestigious title..lol
According to one source, Ki mora was ruling backstage like a tyrant, yelling at staffers and throwing tantrums. "She was in rare form, behaving like an ogre, and screaming at people that this or that was wrong," says the source. Mean while, hubby Russell Simmons acted like a teddy bear. Reports the snitch: "Their behavior was 180 degrees apart." Sim mons' rep did not return calls.
Honestly,people have it in for Kimora.I was once backstage at a fashion show and Naomi Campbell slapped the shit out of me as a hello,it's fashion..there are no bitches...lol.
STAR MAGAZINE GIVES BACK
HURRICANE Katrina victimss staying at the Houston Astrodome may not have a home of their own, enough clothes or schools for their kids to attend — but they will have their Star magazines! Star, in order to "perhaps take their minds off of the devastation and give them some light reading material," according to a rep for the mag, has shipped thousands of free magazines that arrive today. "We will be sending magazines as long as people are still living there," the rep says. Presumably the freebies end after the victims are settled elsewhere.
As if they haven't suffered enough.
THE OLSEN TWINS CHOOSE TWIN BOY SUCCESSORS
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen want to make Cole and Dylan Sprouse the male versions of their teenage girl merchandising empire, The Wall Street Journal reported.
"My sister and I started the whole 'tween empire," Ashley Olsen was quoted as saying. "I definitely see the potential for the boys to do that sort of thing."
The 13-year-old Sprouse twins shared the role of Julian in Adam Sandler's 1999 film, "Big Daddy," just as the entrepreneurial 19-year-old twin actresses played Michelle Tanner on television's "Full House," which aired from 1987-1995.
With the brand name of D.C. Sprouse, Cole and Dylan will be the face of a boys division that will include DVD movies, CDs and other merchandise for the Olsens' Dualstar Entertainment Group, the newspaper reported Monday.
In marketing that's called doubling their market.They've tapped into the boy market now...geniuses.I love those Olsens.

Is singer Maxwell married? There's a rumor circulating that he is indeed. The sometimes-reclusive crooner was rumored to be dating German-bred 'Law & Order' star Elisabeth Rohm, but lately he's been spotted all over New York City with an exotic looking brunette that resembles Penélope Cruz. Maxwell, who recently chopped off his locks and now sports a close-cut, recently attended a CD release party for Kanye West in Queens, N.Y. with the mystery woman on his arm. His publicist was unavailable for comment at press time.
