Taylor Momsen’s Stripper Shoes Have Gone Too Far; James Franco Needs a New Oscars Co-Host?

Taylor MomsenIn a recent interview, Taylor Momsen told an anecdote about an 11-year-old girl that, upon seeing Momsen, turned to her father and asked for stripper shoes. The Gossip Girl star acknowledged that she was a bad influence on young girls, but said that she shouldn’t be an influence at all. Agreed – but also, maybe she should just stop wearing stripper shoes. [CelebDirtyLaundry]

In a recent interview, Jennifer Stone, the star of ABC Family’s sequel to Mean Girls, seems incredibly sweet and down-to-earth. Let’s hope she doesn’t go the way of Lindsay Lohan. [JSYK]

In preparation for her American Dream tour, Katy Perry reveals that she’s on a strict meal plan, but that it "absolutely sucks" to diet. Every Saturday, she splurges on an In-N-Out burger which (mmm) sounds like a great idea, whether or not you’re trying to preserve your sanity for a 95-date tour. [GirlsTalkinSmack]

Yesterday on Twitter, Lady Gaga leaked the full lyrics to her much-anticipated upcoming single, "Born This Way". The anthem preaches tolerance and acceptance, a subject that frequently finds its way into pop music, but is always welcome. Especially when it comes with the phrase, "Don’t be a drag, just be a queen." [DippedInCream]

Jeremy Piven absolutely adores Miley Cyrus (platonically). "I think I must be an 18-year-old girl because we get along really well." I love Jeremy Piven and I’m glad he has a new friend. And, um, can someone please turn this into a reality show ASAP? [AnythingHollywood]

In a new promo for the upcoming Acadamy Awards (below), hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway undergo rigorous training to prepare for every possible Oscar night disaster. Hathaway is fine and everything, but I think the producers made a big mistake casting her as Franco’s co-host. Maybe they should have gone with someone a little more…me? Luckily, I’m still available for the big night. James Franco: call me? For absolutely any reason you can think of. And if you can’t think of a reason, call me anyway: I have several suggestions.
