Gwyneth Paltrow turns 42 on Saturday! The actress, singer, and Goop founder has built friendships with tons of other celebrities, from fellow actors like Kate Hudson, Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, and Claire Danes to fashion designers Stella McCartney and Valentino Garavani. Gwyneth has gone into business with pal and with fitness aficionado Tracy Anderson, as well as buddied up to model Claudia Schiffer (and we're well aware of her high-profile relationship with Beyoncé and Jay Z!). But did you know that Gwyneth went to a Beck concert with Liv Tyler and Kate Moss? Or that she performed onstage with Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock? We've rounded up over 75 photos of the birthday girl with her very famous friends over the years, including snaps of Gwyneth as a fresh-faced ingenue with younger versions of Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, and Brad Pitt - we're talking all the way back to the early '90s! »
It may have been a quiet Sunday in the Nashville suburb of Franklin, Tennessee, but Tim McGraw had Main Street rocking with an intimate performance last night. The multi-platinum country artist celebrated the release of his 13th studio album Sundown Heaven Town at Gray's on Main, surrounded by a small crowd of music industry friends. "We live in a town with great talent," the singer said to the crowd. "To go into the studio and sink my teeth into some of these songs … it makes me proud. At the end of the day, as an artist who records other people's music, »

"In the early days, people seemed to believe that we were the people in Pink Flamingos, that we lived in a trailer and ate dog shit," John Waters says. "And we really weren't, obviously. We'd be in prison if we were. But it was a good reaction. It meant the movie worked."
For the past half a century, the Baltimore-born filmmaker and his pencil mustache have gleefully stood at the vanguard of vulgarity in cinema. Movies like his 1970 freak show Multiple Maniacs and his 1972 offering Pink Flamingos nauseated audiences when »
Anderson petitioned to dismiss her divorce filing on Aug. 21 after reconciling with Salomon and going on a vacation with him to Copenhagen, Denmark, reported People. After the initial filing back in July, it was revealed that the former Baywatch star was threatening divorce as a stunt to encourage Salomon to get his act together.
“Pam felt the only thing she could do at this point in her relationship and marriage to Rick was to file for divorce because of his wild partying,” an insider told Radar Online. “They love each other, but it's always a roller coaster with Pam and Rick. No one should be shocked if they reconcile. Since she filed for divorce, Rick has been begging Pam to halt the proceedings. »

Bobby Ritchie Jr., 21, and his girlfriend will be having a baby girl, and are already four months along, according to a source. Kid Rock’s rep had no comment on the pregnancy. The “Born Free” crooner welcomed his son Bobby with ex-girlfriend Kelley South Russell in [...] »
You needed Sky for the best of last night's TV, I'm afraid. Most exciting: Silicon Valley (Sky Atlantic), brainchild of Beavis and Butthead's Mike Judge, a comedy about a bunch of techy geeks at a live-in startup business incubator in well, it's obvious where.
Richard Hendriks and his equally shy, dweeby programmer mates shuffle awkwardly around the peripheries of the world they want in on. It's a world where the unglamorous can become glamorous (well rich) overnight, just by designing the right software. These are the new rock stars and they hire the old rock stars (actual rock stars, like Kid Rock) to play at their parties.

Pamela Anderson is a single woman again.
Anderson, 47, filed for divorce from Rick Salomon on July 3, 2014, citing "irreconcilable differences."
"We are confirming our client Pamela Anderson has filed for divorce from her husband Rick Salomon. We ask the media to please respect Pamela and her family’s privacy during this time," her rep said in a statement to Et.
This marks the second time she's split from the famous film producer/poker player. She married Salomon in 2007, though she got the marriage annulled just two months later. She later revealed in January that she had remarried her ex.

Anderson filed for divoce from Salomon on July 3, slightly less than seven months after they secretly tied the knot in the beginning of January, reported E! News. In the fall of 2013, Anderson had revealed that she and Salomon had reconciled following their 2008 split and were enjoying their time together.
"I say we're best friends… with benefits," Anderson told Ellen DeGeneres, who asked about the rumored reconciliation on her talk show in October of last year. “I'm very happy. We're happy,” Anderson continued. “He's a great guy."
Last month, rumors swirled that Anderson was no longer as happy as she once was with her husband during their second go at marriage. “It definitely won't last," the insider told Us Weekly. "She likes bad boys, »
"Hey, Hillz! Nice meeting you. Lemme write you a song when you run for president!" That's basically how Katy Perry followed up her meeting with Hillary Clinton at a book signing last Friday. And Clinton seemed down with it, oddly enough. .@katyperry Well that's not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 22, 2014 But before you say that a Hillary Clinton-Katy Perry team-up seems a little out of left field, know that the Ready for Hillary Super Pac already used "Roar" in a promotional video earlier this year.

The years 2008 and 2009 really weren’t that long ago. So it seems a bit odd to reflect on Breaking Bad—it just wrapped its final season in September and is an Emmys hopeful this year—or Lady Gaga when they are still relevant today. “Remember when” just doesn’t carry as much meaning here as it does with the earlier episodes in VH1′s I Love the 2000s series.
That being said, the show’s brilliant talking heads brought the last two installments in the series to life. (I certainly wasn’t sorry I spent my Saturday night watching them, »

Anyone else terribly disappointed by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding photos? They're just two great-looking famous people in normal wedding regalia. Hate it. Celebrity weddings are supposed to offend the senses with obnoxious nerve and disgusting smiles. Let's pick the definitive celebrity photo of all time, one that's hilarious, decadent, and secretly a little bit awesome. First contender: 1. Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney. God, the sexual heat jumping off these two. Who can take it? Renee is wincing wildly and Kenny is dressed like a yoga-practicing Puritan. A fine choice. Or is the best wedding photo this classic snapshot of... 2. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline This is awesomely ridiculous while at the same time emitting no sensuality. And I have the unnerving feeling that Kevin is more aware of what's going on than Britney. Shivers. Here's a dark horse: 3. Kid Rock and Pam Anderson. They got married on a yacht. »

It's been nearly two decades since Chris Farley died. But his Tommy Boy and Black Sheep costar, David Spade, said that he thinks of the physical comedy genius every day in a Reddit Ama session Wednesday. Recalling stories about their time together on Saturday Night Live to his decision not to attend Farley's funeral, Spade wrote his answers with detail and candor. He also discussed his film and TV career beyond Farley, including a surprising number of questions about his 2001 movie The Adventures of Joe Dirt and his magazine-themed sitcom Just Shoot Me. »
Apparently, it will be the first sequel ever produced exclusively for Crackle, and the comedian is trying to find a way to bring Joe Dirt 2 in for a very low budget without losing any of the quality. He explains.
"We wrote a sequel, and we may wind up doing it on Crackle.com, because they want to be the first web address to do a sequel to a movie. Because Sony owns them, and it's a Sony movie. We're trying to find a way to make it for the budget, but we really want to do it. And keep it good."
He went onto discuss the logistics of getting the movie made, and that the soundtrack needed for the sequel may prove to be a problem for the low budget. »
When their participants are on point, Reddit AMAs can be hilarious and insightful, gut-wrenching, awesome, or freaky. David Spade did an Ama this morning, and he was surprisingly game to discuss anything from the Razzie Awards to skateboarding accidents and the late Chris Farley. Also, that "a lot of people have sweaty hands, and when they come up to me it's like shaking hands with a sham-wow."
What seemed to get him talking the most was "Joe Dirt," the 2001 movie about a radio station janitor whose life stories mesmerize audiences and turn him into a star. "Joe Dirt" played on some rather tasteless class tropes, not the least of which was Spade's majestic mullet wig. In any case, one Redditor asked about a possible sequel, which Spade was all too eager to discuss.

I've used this space on a few occasions to profess my love for Espn Films' 30 for 30 documentary series and today's opening paragraph will get a similar treatment. Director Zak Levitt's aptly titled Bad Boys debuted this past Thursday night and, even as someone who grew up adoring the Chicago Bulls, I loved almost every second of it (even with his Detroit roots, I could have lived without the Kid Rock narration). The film focuses on the years of Detroit Pistons basketball known as "The Bad Boys Era", which included back-to-back NBA Championships for the franchise in '89 and '90. As is often the case with 30 for 30 films, Levitt does a nice job of framing the Pistons' iconic run within a societal context; in this case, the 1967 Detroit riot. In doing this, the pic not only offers a fascinating perspective of the team itself but also great insight into what their »

The current golden age of sports documentaries hits a tin-plated patch this week with two flawed if interesting entries: “Bad Boys,” Espn’s nostalgic “30 for 30” trip to hoops heaven, devoted to the bruising Detroit Pistons team of the 1980s; and “Arnie,” a three-part Golf Channel ode to Arnold Palmer, timed to piggyback on the network’s Masters coverage. Both have their moments, but “Bad Boys” gets a little too cute for its own good, while “Arnie” highlights the peril of having all the time in the world to devote to a single topic, even if that means slicing off into the trees.
“Bad Boys,” directed by Zak Levitt and produced by NBA Entertainment, certainly has juicy subject matter in the Pistons, who embraced a physical style of play and take-no-prisoners attitude that earned them hatred around the league (with several former opponents saying as much) but garnered adoration in the Motor City, »
