Edward Norton thinks social networking sites are like “torture.” Unlike many other celebrities, the Leaves of Grass actor has never written an internet blog because he hates the idea of people cyber stalking him.
“I haven’t personally really engaged in a lot of this new kind of social networking stuff like Twitter or Facebook or MySpace,” the 40-year-old star explained. “I mean, the notion of people following what I am doing every day is like torture for me. It’s absolutely the last thing that I’m looking for. It seems to me to be really just about social chatter.”
Despite his web worries, Edward agreed to sign up on Twitter to help raise money for his favorite charity, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.
“It’s a good example of a way that you can turn that platform into something where you actually can accomplish something good,” he added to Parade magazine. “It’s my first attempt. We’re putting our running training log on Twitter. You can see can see pictures too on the site there. The trust conserves the wildlife and culture of the Maasai tribe of Kenya, Africa.”

Although she set out to clear up rumors about a possible pregnancy, Tila Tequila has now left us with even more questions—- and that may be what she intended to begin with.
So I don’t usually like to address rumors cuz all it does is start up more drama, and as you can all clearly see in all of my video’s, I am a very fun-loving, happy, and drama-free type of girl. However lately the rumors have been piling up and I just felt the need to clear up the rumors for all of my fans because I care about you and want you to know the truth! First of all….the PREGNANCY rumors….the point is…maybe I was pregnant, or maybe I wasn’t pregnant. I think that is something very personal but I’m going to clear that up now and say that I am not currently pregnant. So there you go! Let’s move on now! NEXT!
So is it possible that she was pregnant at some point?

By now, the news that Sam Ronson and Lindsay Lohan broke up after New Year’s has swept every gossip mag and celebrity Web site…but the center of the attention says it’s all just false gossip.
“…we did NOT break up!” Linds wrote on her MySpace blog. “Get your stories straight please.”
The couple has been surrounded by stories of loud, public arguments, and this isn’t the first time break up rumors have singled out the pair. As of today, at least, Linds and Sam are still an item.

Hey, they actually are kids. At times I’ve wondered if some Disney celebs aren’t actually Stepford Stars - they look like teens, but they’re really bionic, singing, money-making robots. In some ways, it’s satisfying when they slip up. This at least proves that, while they may be beautiful and rich and talented, at least they’re still human. At the same time, the back-and-forth press games between Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift are starting to get a little - okay, a lot - tedious.
Swift seemed to take the high road regarding the Jonas bro split, saying “He’s not in my life anymore, and I have absolutely nothing to say about or to him” to the New York Times. That was on the ninth (Sunday), and that was the right thing to say.
But then news broke that Joe Jonas, one-third of the pop sensation The Jonas Brothers, was seeing music video hottie Camilla Belle

With the news of his relationship with Camilla Belle now out, Joe Jonas has been forced to go on the defense.
In a recent post on the Jonas Brothers’ MySpace page, the 19-year-old tries to address many of the questions currently being posed. While he doesn’t deny leaving Taylor Swift for another girl (he actually doesn’t even mention the country singer by name), he does deny ever cheating on her. Jonas also claims the infamous “27-second” phone call wasn’t his fault. (Apparently he thought Swift would had something more to say after hearing “I’m interested in someone else.”)

UPDATE: The FBI has since confirmed that the deceased boy found inside the car was Julian King.
The sad discovery of a young boy’s body may have put an end to an Illinois-area Amber Alert.
Earlier this morning, the Chicago Police Department were asked to check on a possible suspicious car. The white Chevy Surburban, which was parked on the city’s west side, matched the description included in Friday’s missing person report. Although a definitive ID has not yet been released, a body found inside is believed to be that of Julian King, Jennifer Hudson’s 7-year-old relative.
Just this past weekend, the Oscar-winner posted a plea on her MySpace page and offered up a $100,000 reward for the safe return of her nephew. Officers began looking for the boy shortly after the bodies of his grandmother and uncle were located late last week. Although he has not yet been charged with any crimes, Julian’s stepfather, William Balfour, has been in police custody since Friday night.
Relatives fearing the worse about King had reportedly scheduled a church vigil for noon today.

UPDATE: Travis Barker has since been released from the hospital.
Three weeks after surviving a fatal plane crash in South Carolina, Travis Barker is now opening up about his recovery process.
In a message posted this weekend on MySpace, the drummer - who is scheduled for another surgery today - shared photos from his hospital stay and thanked fans for their ongoing support. The long-time vegetarian also talks about eating meat (the proteins help with his recovery), the inspiration he felt after seeing DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) and the fine doctors who have been attending to him.
Travis’ recent entry can be read in full after the jump.
UPDATE: You can read Lily’s version of the evening on her MySpace page.
These days, telling people Lily Allen had a drunken night is like telling people Amy Winehouse is still on drugs. The news is kind of expected.
But last night in London, a surprising thing happened to Lily. Not only were her boozing ways called out—they were spotlighted in a very public forum.
While emceeing Britain’s version of the GQ Men of the Year Awards, the 23-year-old was rarely seen without a champagne glass wrapped tightly in her hands. This sad behavior (coupled with her slurred words and F-bombs) bothered Elton John so much, the co-host eventually let her know it. What followed was a very tense and nasty exchange between the two musicians.
