Lindsay Lohan Rushed to Hospital After Car Crash

Lindsay went straight back to work after THIS
Lindsay went straight back to work after THIS

Lindsay Lohan is a right grafter. (A year ago if you'd have told us we'd be writing that sentence without being ironic or making some sort of rude pun we would have guffawed politely in your face.) Oh how times have changed. After being involved in a massive car wreck yesterday and getting rushed to hospital, Lindsay is back on set this morning.
Amazing stuff.

Lindsay Lohan's crashed Porsche lies on a flatbed tow truck, after it collided with a truck on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica are reporting that she's hiding 'extensive' injuries so she can keep on shooting the Liz Taylor movie, Liz and Dick, for Lifetime channel.
They report that she refused to let producers cancel filming and went straight to the set after being released from hospital.
Lindsay or Liz? WE CAN'T TELL

She apparently had visible bruises and cuts, but asked that make-up artists cover them up.
She must be serious about nailing this role which comes after several years of being in the movie wilderness after her partying and drinking ways made her unemployable.
The film's just over five minutes long - five minutes of Lindsay looking sexy though

She's trying to prove that she's not a liability anymore - although you'd think being in a whopping car crash might cut you some slack. Lindsay obviously doesn't want to risk it. 
Lindsay's Porche was "totalled" after being involved in a collision with a truck in Los Angeles.

There's no saving this pretty car. Which is sad

She was driving along the Pacific Coast Highway with her assistant just before noon when they crashed. She was reportedly taken to the UCLA Medical Centre where doctors performed tests.
Police said neither she nor the truck driver showed any signs of being under the influence of alcohol.
A spokesman for the Elizabeth Taylor biopic said, "First and foremost we're concerned about the wellbeing of Lindsay and anyone else who may have been involved in the accident.
"Lindsay has been doing fantastic work on the set of Liz and Dick."

We're totally rooting for Lindsay in a weird kind-of-but-not-meant-to-be-patronising-proud-parent way. It's the same with Britney Spears - we love that she's managed to turn everything around and is now doing massively well. It makes us feel genuinely quite happy. Which is strange as we're working on a Saturday and shouldn't really be happy.

Best girlfriend ever? Kim Kardashian splashes out almost $400,000 on sleek Lamborghini for Kanye West's 35th birthday

She is the reality television star who has everything - well almost everything. And now Kim Kardashian has shown she is happy to share.
Kim, 31, took delivery of a Lamborghini at her Los Angeles home yesterday and soon afterwards took it out  for a spin.
But the car isn’t for Kim, who is already the owner of a baby Bentley. 
The reality TV star splashed out on the luxury motor for her boyfriend Kanye West’s 35th birthday today, according to TMZ.
She is the reality television star who has everything - just not a Lamborghini maybe.

Even though the rapper is currently in Ireland on his Watch The Throne world tour, his caring girlfriend got the car delivered before she flew out to visit him today.
She then made a video of the present and will screen it for him after his show in Dublin tonight.
The 2012 Lamborghini Aventador doesn't leave much change from $400,000. The Aventador LP700-4 can do 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h. 
The car company named the cat 'Aventador' after a bull that entered into battle on October 1993 at the Saragossa Arena, earning the 'Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera' for its outstanding courage.

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old reality star looked in good spirits as she made her way through LAX airport for yet another flight. 
Kim, looked comfortable back in her casual clothes after she suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction earlier this week when her leather dress zip broke before an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel show. 
Wearing tight faded jeans, studded boots and tough biker style jacket, she recovered her composure quickly to continue her highly documented life in front of the cameras. 
Let's face it, it's probably not the worse thing that's happened to her on camera.
Casual chic: Kim still wore full make-up for her flight

The star had to be sewn into her skintight leather dress before she could join sisters Khloe and Kourtney on the set of the late night talk show in Los Angeles. 
The petite star was photographed on her way to the studio with sister Khloe who was dressed in a clingy long-sleeved leather number that left little to the imagination, even with so little skin showing.
Kim had earlier taken to Twitter to share her excitement about appearing on the late night show, writing: 'Can't wait to chat with Jimmy Kimmel tonight with my sisters @KourtneyKardash and @KhloeKardash! Tune in tonight at 12am PST'.
But soon after, a worrying series of tweets followed, accompanied by a picture of the star being stitched and stuffed back into the fabric after it had split.
Dressed to impress: The star was happy and confident arriving at the Kimmel studios, before wardrobe disaster struck
New venture: The reality star a businesswoman revealed that she and her sisters would soon be launching their own make-up line

She wrote: 'About to do Jimmy Kimmel & my whole dress rips! Help!!! Time to sew me in...praying this works!'
'Getting my dress sewn up! I think we can make it work...'
Breathe in! Kim showed fans her popped zipper

Not to be outdone by a near fashion-disaster, Kim eventually made her way to the set, looking pulled together as ever - the audience none the wiser.
Kim paired the dress with towering leopard Christian Louboutin pumps, the soles of which perfectly matched her red nail polish, and showcased a dazzling set of diamond earrings with her raven hair pulled back into a sleek ponytail. 
However, the mishap doesn't seem to have ruffled the star too much, and she appeared on top form after appearing with her sisters on Jimmy Kimmel. 
The sisters were quizzed on their relationships with Kourtney revealing she has commitment issues when asked why she had still not married her boyfriend Scott Disick.
Kourtney replied: 'I'm really claustrophobic and all my issues - and I have a lot of them - they all stem from this thing... I can't commit to anything - I love Scott, and he is my partner.'
Kimmel joked, in reference to Kim's ill-fated 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries: 'Why don’t you try marriage for a little while like Kim did and see how it goes?'
Meanwhile, Kim,  Kourtney, 33, and Khloe Kardashian, 27, have announced a forthcoming beauty range titled Khroma Beauty.
The line, which is due out in December, will include false eyelashes, a 'suite' of mascaras and 'Kardazzle Compacts', although it is unclear as to what that actually is.

Happy Birthday, Kanye West:10 Gift Ideas for the Mighty Yeez

Photo by Marco Torres
Today is Kanye Omari West's 35th birthday, and that's a bit of a problem. We're happy to celebrate, of course, but Rocks Off is big on giving gifts, and Yeezy's already got it all: Hit records, a world tour, a celebrity paramour and sunglasses with no glass in them. What do you get the man who has everything?
Creative types that we are, we've got a few ideas. Ten of them, actually. Some of these gifts are outrageously expensive and some are simply thoughtful. Please pick one according to your budget and level of fame. Choose wisely, and perhaps you'll please Mr. West enough to be immortalized forever in one of his classic raps.
If your gift flops, though, you ain't heard about it from us.
10. Nike Air Yeezy 2s: When it comes to fashion, Kanye is probably pretty hard to buy for. Let's face it, he's got an eclectic personal style that you can't really be outfitted at Old Navy. That's why when it comes to clothes, you should play it safe and get him something dreamed up by his favorite designer--himself.
Designed by Kanye, the Nike Air Yeezy 2s are quickly becoming one of the most anticipated sneaker releases of the year. A small number of this limited edition shoe has already been preordered by a lucky few. How lucky? Well, a pair on eBay got bid up past $90,000 this week. Holy shit. Presumably, some Saudi prince is about to look fresh as fuck as he wipes his ass with gold bullion or whatever it is those guys do with their time.
Yes, Kanye's already got at least one pair of Yeezy 2s. Probably a few. So? Maybe he doesn't like the ones he's wearing today. And what could possibly make a more thoughtful gift than an absurdly expensive luxury item invented by Kanye West himself?
9. Louis Vuitton Skateboard: Does Kanye West skate? Can't say we've ever seen it happen, but it seems like he should. If we had to guess, he doesn't skate because there's no skateboard out there that's fly enough to be allowed near his feet. At least, there wasn't until recently.
Louis Vuitton created this deck and case combo as part of a tribute to the late fashion designer/graffiti artists Stephen Sprouse. They only made two of them, and they're $8,250 apiece. That's a hell of a lot of money for a child's toy, but look at that thing. It's a Louis Vuitton skateboard. Who the hell else besides Kanye West can practice kickflips on this board without looking like a complete idiot? Nobody except Spuds McKenzie, maybe, and it ain't Spuds' birthday.
8. Merriam-Webster's Pocket Rhyming Dictionary: Rapping is hard. We've tried it before, and nobody thought our rhymes were good enough to design our own sneakers. It's got to be even tougher for Kanye. He's a lot busier than we are, what with having to keep up with the Kardashians and all, so he probably doesn't have a lot of time to come up with new rhymes for "Armenian."
That's what makes this handy pocket dictionary the perfect birthday gift. He can stash it in his pants (or Kim's monstrous butt crack) and whip it out anytime the urge to create strikes him.

7. Spyder III Laser: Kanye has had a bit of trouble with lasers recently. When the Watch the Throne Tour rolled through Paris, 'Ye stopped the show to profanely admonish a fan who was flashing a green laser pointer at him. Apparently in France, it's still 2001 and people carry laser pointers in public with which to annoy others. As we're sure Kanye knows, a simple rant isn't enough to stamp out this nuisance. It's time to fight fire with fire.
That's why Wicked Lasers' Spider III laser would make an ideal gift for the world's greatest living rapper. This bad boy is the most powerful handheld laser on earth, bright enough to set human flesh on fire. After Kanye lights a few unruly fans up like the Human Torch using the Spyder III, the rest of the crowd ought to get the message about flashing blinding lights at performers onstage.
6. Mederma Advanced Scar Gel: Everyone knows that Kanye West is an incredible rapper, singer and songwriter. But just think how much better he could be if he had a little more self-confidence! We've always believed that Mr. West's chronic shyness and shunning of the spotlight are due to his embarrassment over his facial scars, the results of a near-fatal car accident. Luckily for Kanye, there's a solution.
Mederma Advanced Scar Gel can reduce the appearance of both old and new scars, giving Kanye his face back one daub at a time. In no time at all, he'll be ready to face the mirror again, happy and confident that he looks as good as he sings. What more thoughtful gift could there be?
5. Housewarming Gift Basket: The gossip blogs are all a-titter this week over rumors that Kanye and his girlfriend of three months, Kim Kardashian, are moving in together. This presents well-wishers with the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. We think it's a sweet idea to celebrate Kanye's birthday by giving him a gift that will remind him of his newfound domestic bliss: a good, old-fashioned housewarming gift basket!
A little coffee, some chocolate, fruit, cookies and a few other trifles is all you need to make Kanye and Kim feel welcome and loved in their new abode. You could probably get away with hiding your demo record in there, too, as long as you're discrete about it. Bonus points if one of the tracks samples "Happy Birthday to You."
4. Clozapine: As Taylor Swift would be happy to tell you, Kanye West is as well-known for his erratic behavior and outbursts as he is for his creative genius. The rapper's grandiosity and unpredictability have led some to speculate that he suffers from a chemical imbalance in his brain, which could admittedly account for the whole Kim Kardashian thing.
As far as we know, the only way to cure mental health issues is to start throwing drugs at 'em. That's why we recommend that fans and friends alike shower Kanye with birthday gifts of clozapine, one of the more powerful antipsychotic medications with the fewest side-effects currently on the market.
Ordinarily, you'd need a prescription to acquire these tablets, but Kanye and all of his friends are rich, so there are no rules to break there. This gift could potentially save the life of a deeply unhappy man. Isn't that what we hope for all of our birthday gifts?

3. Gwyneth Paltrow's Notes From My Kitchen Table: If Kanye wants to keep palling around with his buddies Jay-Z and Beyonce, he's going to have to start making a few more concessions to the A-listers that have already embraced hip-hop's First Family as their own. A good start would be adding honorary ni**a in Paris Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, Notes From My Kitchen Table, to his cooking library.
This gift would serve two purposes at once. First, it would help convince guests that Kanye has read a book before. Second, it would help to educate our favorite musical titan on the kinds of foods he'll have to eat if he wants to be allowed near Beyonce's hyper-skinny bestie. How bad could Vegenaise actually be, anyway?
2. One Round-Trip Ticket on SpaceX: Kanye West has already explored outer space in song on "E.T.," his No. 1 single with Katy Perry. Now it's time to do it for real. SpaceX recently became the first private company to launch a spacecraft that docked at the International Space Station, and for the right price, there's no doubt they'd be happy to blast Kanye off the face of the planet toward the stars.
Just think of the crazy, inventive raps Kanye could come up with while experiencing weightlessness! This could be, like, a concept album in the making.
1. Full-scale Replica of the Iron Throne: With the help of Jay-Z, Kanye has already commanded us to watch the throne. What better way to commemorate the incredible success of their collaboration than with a massive fiberglass replica of the Iron Throne from HBO's Game of Thrones? We can't think of any.
As any Lannister could tell you, the Iron Throne doesn't come cheap. It's currently on sale on the HBO Shop Web site for $30,000. That may seem a little steep for a chair that's almost certainly uncomfortable as all hell, but if somebody doesn't deliver this cruel mistress to Kanye's house for his birthday, he might just be forced to march on King's Landing and pay the Iron Price for it, instead.

Kim Kardashian Gives Kanye West $750K Birthday Lamborghini

Kimmy Cakes Drops $750K On New Lambo For Yeezy’s Birthday

Lamborghini mercy, guess what Kim Kardashian got Kanye West for his birthday? No, it wasn't the Murciélago — we're pretty sure Yeezy already has one of those, seeing as the exclusive model was the inspiration for his new G.O.O.D. Music single "Mercy." Instead, Kimmy kicked it up a notch and dropped $750,000 on a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 for her beau's 35th birthday.
Hopefully TMZ didn't ruin the surprise when they published pics of the rare black two-door sports car. According to the site, Kardashian couldn't bring the gift to 'Ye because he's in Ireland with Jay-Z for another stop on the European leg of their Watch the Throne Tour, so Kim took a video of the car in L.A. so she could show him.
"Kimye" began dating earlier this spring and have since become prime targets for the paparazzi, who have snapped the lovebirds on both coasts. The pair were also spotted at the Cannes Film Festival in May, where Yeezy premiered his "Cruel Summer" film. Last week, TMZ reported that both Kanye and Kim put their Los Angeles-area homes up for sale, fueling rumors that the two are planning to move in together.
On Wednesday, 'Ye and his G.O.O.D. Music comrades dropped the video for their "Mercy" single, which they spot in an art-deco inspired parking garage. Now that the Louis Vuitton Don has a new toy to rap about, we wonder if a remix is on the horizon.

5 scandals Kanye should put to rest on his 35th birthday

  • It's Kanye West's 35th birthday and we just didn't know what to get him. After all, what do you buy for the guy who just sold a pair of sneakers on Ebay for upwards of $90,000? You buy him nothing. Instead, Kanye, we treat you to this list of your five biggest missteps thus far in your career. It's our hope that as you round the corner into the latter half of your third decade, you can do so with less focus on scandal, and more focus on your music--which is pretty great.   
  • Dating Kim KardashianTempting as it is to pretend this just isn't happening, it appears that Kanye and reality nuptial queen Kim Kardashian are romantically involved. Not that we don't wish them both happiness in their own right, but the track records here for attention-grabbing for the sake of attention-grabbing aren't great. Relationships that work aren't played out in front of cameras. (Do you really need the reminder, Kim?) And now they're already talking about getting married? Help us. Or at the very least, promise if you do get married, it will happen far, far away from any cameras.
  • Colossally awful tweets Most Twitter accounts ought not to be taken too seriously, and Kanye's certainly falls into that category. It's served as a place for ranting against those who pair hoodies with sport coats,  and sometimes offers wise advice, like reminding his 7 million followers "no alcohol before tattoos." But it's also been the perfect place to put his outsized ego on display. "God chose me. He made a path for me. I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live," he wrote in 2009
  • Abortion commentaryIf ever there was a subject not fit for discussion in 140-character increments, it's the abortion. But that didn't stop Kanye, who actually never said whether he supported it or not, but rather commented on the price of the procedure. His remarks were so outrageous, the fact that they were written on Twitter is almost beside the point. On this occasion, West never apologized. 
  • 'George Bush doesn't care about black people'
    He just said WHAT? West went off-script during a portion of the Hurricane Katrina telethon, offering up his opinion of how the then-president was treating African-Americans in the wake of the storm. Did it open up the dialogue about the treatment of Katrina victims? Certainly. Did it do so in a way that would be most productive? Doubtful. Instead of the storm being the message, Kanye was. In Bush's recent memoir, he wrote that the implication that he was racist was "the worst moment of my presidency."
  • And the No. 1 biggest misstep: 'I'ma let you finish'This stage-crash heard around the world barely warrants any additional explanation (but in case you just joined planet Earth and need a rehash of exactly how Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards, go here). Despite several apologies (one, likening himself inexplicably to Ben Stiller in "Meet the Parents") this is likely going to follow West around the rest of his life. On the upside, this awful display of manners has given us many years worth of comedy. A Tumblr pagedevoted to "Kanyegate"? Yes, please.  

Happy 35th Birthday Kanye West!
