— The mini-dress and bunny-ear ensemble Madonna unveiled at the Metropolitan Museum Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala earned the queen of pop more than just a top spot on many worst-dressed lists. It also earned her the ire of James Kambewa, the man who claims to be the father of the Malawian orphan Madonna hopes to adopt.
“I cannot imagine how this woman can want to be the mother of my Mercy,” Kambewa told the Daily Star. “This can’t be a woman of 50. A teenage woman would feel ashamed in that gear.”
According to Kambewa, who has yet to meet his alleged daughter, Madonna’s racy wear revealed as much about her morals as it did her taste in fashion.
“A woman is supposed to be a role model for her daughters,” Kambewa insisted. “What morals can a woman of 50 have, who has no qualms in showing her delicate parts and displaying herself like that in front of her children?”
Aging ‘Friends’ may never reunite
Fans holding out hope for a “Friends” reunion will either have their dream come true soon or not at all, at least if actress Jennifer Aniston has anything to say about it.
While she’s open to the idea of getting the gang back to Central Perk, Aniston told MTV News that the cast and creators “should hurry up.” After all, no one’s getting any younger, and a one-off story about a pack of senior pals and their relationship woes might miss the mark.
“Well, it’s been off the air, but you also don’t want it to be that reunion show or movie where you see — like when the ‘Brady Bunch’ had a reunion and they were old,” Aniston explained.
Speidi’s fame quest
“The Hills” most loathed newlyweds, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, just can’t get enough of fame. While it’s no shocker that the pair enjoys living their lives in front of the lens, it goes beyond that. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Pratt admitted they even pray to stay in the spotlight.
“Heidi and I do — we love fame,” Pratt said. “We’re honored to be famous. We feel blessed to be famous. We pray every day to stay famous. It’s the most fun. That’s our mentality with fame. That’s why we’re so different than everybody else in these tabloids — because we embrace it.”
That’s also why the paparazzi, who have a Pratt-like rep with many celebs, never have to go out of their way for a special Speidi shot.
“The paparazzi are like family members to us,” Pratt says. “And family members help each other. I respect the paparazzi more than anybody.”
Dish on the fly
Reality TV regular Brooke Hogan thinks she knows best when it comes to estranged mom Linda Hogan’s May-December romance. “I had a talk with her and I said, ‘I think everyone in America knows why I won’t accept Charlie (Hill),’” she told OK! magazine. “But what people don’t know is that he’s a bad influence on her. She’s not staying as healthy as she should be. He’s 19, he can party his ass off. She’s 48. I said, ‘Mom, if you want to have a relationship with me you have to dump Charlie.’” Given a choice, Brooke claimed she’d rather see her mom dating a tot than the troubled teen. “It’s not because of his age. If he were 5 years old and a good influence on her then that would be better.” … Rocker and rant-prone blogger Courtney Love kicked off another online rumble-without-a-cause this week. Targeting pop-indie odd couple Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams, Love filled her MySpace blog with plenty of hate. “Christ, ugh igh ugh Mandy Moore,” she wrote. “Ick, the thought of her sticking her tongue down (Ryan’s) filthy hatch.” After listing all of Adams “filthy” faults, Love included his name under the heading “People I would hit if I saw them.”
