Fantastic! Ellen Degeneres & Portia de Rossi must be elated now that Prop 8 has been extinguished from their lives and they are now recognized as married. Last Friday, Portia filed a petition with the Los Angeles County Superior Court to legally change her name to Portia DeGeneres.

The two happily married women tied the knot back in August of 2008 and had their unity stripped away from them when Prop 8 came into effect. The hearing for the name change is set for September 23rd and is expected to be minutes long and totally routine – other than the fact that it involves Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

I’m so happy for them!

Jane Lynch To Host SNL!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Hell yeah! The hilarious Jane Lynch is going to be hosting a night of SNL this fall on the show’s 36th season. Lynch jump started to a superstar in her Emmy-nominated role as the villain Sue Sylvester on Glee. Now, she gets to show us even more of her comedic skills as the host SNL on October 9th. Mark that on your calendars and set your PVRs, Gleeks!

Jane Lynch is a Second City veteran and has been making people laugh for ages. One of the first times I really took notice of her was on “Best In Show,” where she played a lesbian dog show competitor who took the competition very seriously, as did the rest of the cast. The show is hilarious and I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it.

MTV vs. Vevo

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Uh oh! Vevo has pulled all of their online music videos, which include artists like Lady Gaga & Justin Bieber, off of MTV.com after they have failed to reach an agreement. As you may or may not know, Vevo (the higher end version of YouTube for music videos) supplies licensed music videos from thousands of artists to sites across the Internet and also has a video player that it embeds on third-party sites. Previously, MTV did the ad sales and shared the proceeds with Universal (which owns Vevo). Now, Vevo wants to sell the ads and share the ad revenue with MTV, but MTV is not agreeing to this.

A Universal spokesman said:

“[MTV] has been unwilling to negotiate a fair syndication deal with Vevo to carry our artists’ videos and consequently our videos will not be shown on their online properties.”

MTV responded:

“During our recent discussions with Vevo we were unable to reach a fair and equitable agreement for rights to stream UMG artists’ music video content. As a result, UMG has elected to pull their music videos from our Web sites.”

Play nice kids!

Kesha “Tik Toks” A Watch Deal

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, Music

Pop singer Ke$ha is the latest musician to lend her name for a product endorsement. It’s only natural and a matter of time before the “Tik Tok” singer, signed on with a watch company. The good folks at Casio’s Timepiece division thought so too and courted Ke$ha to become their newest watch designer and brand ambassador for their Casio Baby-G watches.

The Baby-G brand was developed as the woman’s counterpart to the brand’s highly-popular G-Shock brand. Most of their watches are moderately priced, for the perfect addition of color to any stylish outfit. The blond pop sensation will design two unique styles for Baby-G watches. The first model isn’t expected to hit stores until Summer 2011. Personally, I think they should fast-track them for the upcoming holiday season. There’s no guarantee Ke$ha’s popularity will be as high next year.

Here’s what the budding designer stated at Casio’s “Shock The World” event earlier in the week:

“I think the Baby-G brand is amazing it’s stylish, innovative, durable and affordable. The bright colors and metallic finishes really compliment my moods and personality,” said Ke$ha. “I have some fun ideas for my watches and I am so thrilled that I am the first worldwide female artist to be given the opportunity to design my very own Baby-G!”

Fugee star Wyclef Jean recently announced (of all things) his candidacy for President of Haiti. Who’d of thought? Well, Hollywood A-Lister Sean Penn is suspicious of his motives and/or ability in such a role. He shared his thoughts with CNN:

“This is somebody who’s going to receive an enormous amount of support from the United States, and I have to say I’m very suspicious of it, simply because he, as an ambassador at large, has been virtually silent. For those of us in Haiti, he has been a non-presence.”

With Kevin Costner getting involved in the BP Spill, Madonna getting involved with human rights in Malawi, Bono‘s Red campaign, it seems that stars are using their power for good, more than ever.

I just realize this morning how I hadn’t written about anyone from The Hills for a while – how quickly we forget about them now that the show is done. With that, I thought I’d see what they were up too. Heidi Montag is missing the old days, having updated her twitter yesterday with a sentimental tweet with a shout out to her old “friends” Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridige. Both disapproved of Spencer Pratt, the guy that Heidi essential lost her soul and identity too, and now that the relationship is over, she seems to be reaching out.

If she’s watching old episodes, I wonder if she can even recognizer herself, considering the dramatic plastic surgery and loss of personality she went through as her relationship with Spencer progressed. Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge haven’t responded to her Twitter message (at least not publicly). No tweet about missing her family though.

In reference to her divorce with Spencer, Heidi recently told People Magazine:

“This has been a heartbreaking experience to go through, and it’s not that I don’t love Spencer, we just want different things in life…We’ve been together almost five years — there are assets to divide, work to be discussed, and we share our puppies.”

Man Crush: Tom Hardy

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

If you watched Inception and thought you were hallucinating when you saw this sexy dreamboat appear on screen, you weren’t. English actor, Tom Hardy, is the real deal. Born in the town of Hammersmith (I’d hammer his smith), Hardy was an only child to artistic parents.

The 32-year-old thespian made his film debut in Ridley Scott’s “Black Hawk Down” and has been working ever since on TV and the silver screen. Some of his TV acting credits include “Band of Brothers“, “A For Andromeda”, “Gideon’s Daughter”, “Wuthering Heights“, while his film roles include “Bronson”, “Inception“, and “Warrior“.

With the success of Inception, Hardy’s star is rising fast. The voluptuous-lipped stud recently signed on to co-star with Charlize Theron as the title role in the reboot Mad Max: Fury Road. He’s also attached to star in “This Means War“, where he battles Chris Pine (Star Trek) for Reese Witherspoon’s affection. Commit Tom Hardy to memory, because he’ll be around for awhile.

Citing Ronald Reagan (USA) and Vaclav Havel (Czechoslovakia) as precedents for artists-turned-heads of state, Wyclef announced his candidacy, just days before the deadline, for the presidency of Haiti to Time Magazine. Rumors swirled for weeks the rapper might throw his metaphorical hat in the ring. If he wins, I guess we shouldn’t hold our breath for a Fugees reunion anytime soon. BOO.

“If not for the earthquake, I probably would have waited another 10 years before doing this,” Jean said. “If I can’t take five years out to serve my country as President…then everything I’ve been singing about, like equal rights, doesn’t mean anything.”

Though Wyclef is correct in referencing Reagan and Havel as precedents, both of them had decades of political leadership under their belts before becoming president, which the former Fugees’ frontman lacks. Other examples include Filipino actor Joseph Estrada winning the election in the Philippines in 1998, the widest margin in the country’s history. Poland also elected former child actor Lech Kaczynski as their head of state.
