Emma Watson Says No Way To Celebrity Fragrance Endorsements

Emma Watson - Burberry Collection

Emma Watson, co-star of the hugely popular Harry Potter movie series may lend herself to the world of fashion in so much that girls around the world want to replicate her sophisticated style, however when it comes to celebrity fragrances, she says no way to endorsements.

Watson told the British Press Association:

“I can’t understand this fragrance thing,” adding, “Why would you want to smell like somebody else? Don’t you want to smell like yourself?”

On the other hand, when it comes to clothing collaborations she’s more open minded, having recently designed and modeled for fair-trade clothing collection Free People. Emma has also posted with her brother Alex for a Burberry collection.

So you can’t smell like Emma Watson anytime soon, but you can dress like her until your heart’s content, that is if you can afford to buy the designers she wears.

Cameron Diaz & Alex Rodriguez Spend Thanksgiving Weekend in Mexico



Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez, who recently rekindled their romance, have gone from hot to hotter to even hotter.

The actress and ballplayer were spotted together – a week and a half ago – having dinner in sunny California. Then they were seen five days ago in even warmer Miami, relaxing on a big boat that traveled around Biscayne Bay.

Now RadarOnline has photographs of A-Rod and Diaz in muy caliente Mexico, hosing each other down after coming out of the ocean.

Still, a source tells Gossip Cop there’s no rush to buy anything off the registry. “They’re back to spending time together,” says the source, adding their relationship is “good, but not very serious yet.”

What do you think about Diaz and Rodriguez reconnecting?

Lily Allen Blasts Gossip Columnist for Post-Miscarriage Wedding Rumors


Lily Allen is blasting a gossip columnist who claims Allen and Sam Cooper are planning to marry in the aftermath of her recent miscarriage.

The Daily Mail’s Katie Nicholl quotes a so-called “friend” of the couple as saying, “They realised through their grief that they absolutely adore one another and cannot live without each other.” Nicholl goes on to speculate about the location of the ceremony and reception.

Allen, who’s also recovering from blood poisoning, took to Twitter to say exactly what she thought of Nicholl.

Allen writes, “Katie Nicholl I THINK you’re a c**t, leave me out of your sh**ty column, you know nothing about the intimate details of my life.”

“Theres (sic) a time and a place for your musings where i’m concerned, and it’s not now,” adds the singer.

Gossip Cop has busted Nicholl’s “musings” before, including her wrong assertions about Sienna Miller and Charlize Theron following Kabbalah, as well as her baseless claim that Uma Thurman planned to marry at Kensington Palace.

As of now, the Allen article is still posted to the Daily Mail’s website, and Nicholl has not responded.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Asked to Do “Dancing with the Stars”?


“Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart turn down Dancing with the Stars?” asks an article on Examiner.com.

The author of the post claims that according to his “sources in the know at a public relations firm that does business with several Twilight cast members, both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were asked to participate in season 12 of Dancing with the Stars.”

The article then states, “Specific details aren’t yet available, other than the concrete reality that neither star will be dancing any time soon.”

Want to know why there aren’t any “specific details”?

Simply, because this NEVER happened.

Firstly, there isn’t a single “public relations firm that does business with several Twilight cast members.”

In fact, the top stars of the Twilight Saga are scattered among many different PR firms. And Pattinson doesn’t even have a press agent.

Still, Gossip Cop looked into this, and there isn’t one shred of evidence that Pattinson and Stewart were even approached by ABC to appear on the show.

It’s simply untrue – no way to dance around that.

Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Others to Quit Facebook and Twitter for Charity


Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Usher are going to sign off Twitter, Facebook and other social media – all in the name of charity.

The celebs are part of a new campaign called “Digital Life Sacrifice,” which is set to raise money on behalf of Keys’ charity, “Keep a Child Alive.”

On Wednesday, which is World AIDS Day, the stars will leave their millions of fans on various social media platforms, only to return when $1 million is raised.

“It’s really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on,” says Keys.

Additionally, other stars including Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Hudson, Elijah Wood, Serena Williams, and Keys’ husband Swizz Beatz have filmed ads of themselves in coffins – dubbed their “last tweet and testament” – to represent “their digital deaths.”

“It’s so important to shock you to the point of waking up,” explains Keys, adding, “It’s not that people don’t care or it’s not that people don’t want to do something, it’s that they never thought of it quite like that.”

The money raised – via text messages – will help families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
