The Baldwin report

Unreliable and second-hand gossip from around the world*

Demi Lovato

The former child star and current X Factor judge got into it with the omnipotent Simon Cowell on the show last week. She criticized Cowell's creation, the boy band One Direction, saying putting the group together was a mistake. Huh, interesting move on Demi’s part. I mean, I’ve seen careers die before, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen one get whacked.

Charlie Sheen

The Anger Management star is being investigated by Los Angeles police after a man claimed Sheen threatened to blow his head off with a shotgun. Sheen apparently texted a mutual friend with the threat, and the friend alerted authorities. I’m sorry. There is something about this story that is patently unbelievable. Anger Management is still on TV?


The aging pop star stopped her performance mid-concert on Election Night when it became clear President Obama was going to be reelected. Madge gave the crowd an impassioned speech, thrilled that Obama would be serving four more years...which is odd because she’s normally so private about her politics…

Taylor Lautner

The Twilight third wheel is getting a distinctive honor next week. He is being added to Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. Robert Pattinson’s Edward and Kristen Stewart’s Bella already have been immortalized; and now, werewolf Jacob will join them. Although I don’t know why they bothered with a sculptor. Lautner could just as easily have stood there and done the job.

*so don’t quote me.
