Madonna

Madonna, the ultimate cougar

Her directing work may be receiving lukewarm reviews, but Madonna has other career opportunities, apparently. Dating website CougarLife.com has reportedly approached the singer about becoming its spokeswoman, explaining that Madonna is “without a doubt the queen of cougars.” The site is offering her $300,000, plus an additional $750,000 if she releases a song by Valentine’s Day for the site.

Leonardo DiCaprio, a thief?

A jewelry store employee in Sydney, Australia, thought she was about to be robbed recently when a man entered wearing a hoodie, baseball cap and sunglasses, but it turns out it was just Leonardo DiCaprio, according to Hollyscoop. Before realizing her mistake, the clerk sent a customer to alert the shop’s owner. “The customer actually leaned in and said, ‘Do you want me to call the police?’” the other store’s owner says. “So she rushed in next door, and said, you know, ‘There might be a holdup next door.’” The $1,600 necklace that DiCaprio ended up purchasing was a gift for his mom and not rumored girlfriend Blake Lively, according to the store employees.

Reese Witherspoon won’t sue

Reese Witherspoon is looking to move on after getting hit by a car last week, and the Oscar winner is not planning to press charges, according to People magazine. But that doesn’t mean the 84-year-old driver is in the clear, as she was still cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Witherspoon was treated for minor injuries.
