Taylor Momsen has officially announced the end of her acting career. The former “Gossip Girl” star says in an Elle interview that she “quit acting” and now only wants to tour and be in her band, the Pretty Reckless. “Hopefully, I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life,” she says. (Elle)
Gerard Depardieu reportedly urinated on an Air France plane in front of other passengers after flight attendants told him he could not use the restroom. The incident occurred Tuesday, after the “Green Card” star and revered French actor was asked to hold it for 15 minutes, just until the plane was in flight. Apparently that was not possible, so he unzipped and relieved himself right there on the carpet, causing the plane to return to the gate and be delayed for two hours so the crew could clean up what Depardieu did. He must have been super-popular once everyone reboarded. (New York Post)

Kiss has been kicked off the bill for an upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert after fans and the singer’s estate pointed out that Gene Simmons once told a magazine in 2009 that he believed Jackson abused children. “There’s no question in my mind that he molested those kids,” he said at the time. “Not a doubt.” “Under the circumstances, we fully agree that even though Kiss is a band Michael admired, we have no choice but to rescind our invitation to them to appear in our tribute concert,” Chris Hunt, the CEO of Global Live Events, announced.
