Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr are officially engaged, a rep for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor confirmed on Monday. Bloom and Kerr have been dating for three years. Rumors the two are engaged have cropped up before, but this time reps for both have officially confirmed the news.
Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom and Australian model Miranda Kerr began dating in 2008. No word yet on when the wedding will take place. As for what comes after the vows are exchanged, we already know Kerr is hoping for the patter of little feet around the house sometime in the future.
“I’ve always wanted kids, so… someday… eventually, yes, it will happen,” Kerr told Page Six Magazine in 2008.
The model’s rep told People the “entire Kerr family is thrilled with the news” and the couple’s engagement. “It is a very exciting time for both of them.”
On Saturday night, another vicious celebrity rumor hit the Net claiming Jonah Hex star Megan Fox aborted a black baby. Earlier in the week, various sites and message boards flared up with a rumor that Justin Bieber has syphilis and/or had broken his neck in a terrible car accident. None of this crap is true, of course.
So how the hell do these crazy bits of gossip get started? Well, one of the parties to blame is the website 4Chan.org. These weirdos spend far too much of their time thinking up insane celebrity rumors and then working to spread them all over the Net.
One 4Chan’s goals is to get the rumor featured as the number one search term on Google, which then plants it in the number one spot on Google Trends. When that happens, pretty much every gossipy site on the Net will pick it up. Kind of like we’re doing right now.
Why? Because they are pretty much rabid attention whores. They like feelingÂ ‘special’ by succeeding in manipulating powerhouses like Google. Every now and then, one of their rumors actually even gets reported as fact by the mainstream press. This makes them feel like their ‘tools’ are actually way, way larger than they really are.
The lesson to be learned here is that any rumor you hear could very well be fake. So when you see a rumor floating out on the Nets saying Russell Crowe is dead, for example, think twice before you start spreading it around. Because somewhere out there, probably at 4Chan.org, people are laughing wildly over their latest prank on unsuspecting Internet surfers.
Update:Although an anoymous poster on 4Chan.org claims they are responsible for the Megan Fox rumor (a claimÂ a number of gossip-fueled sites support), severalÂ commenters here claimsÂ EbaumsWorld.com is actually to blame. We love it when these people are so desperate to inflate their own sense of self-importance they have to battle it out in snarky comments toÂ make sureÂ they get the credit!
Jonah Hex star Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green announced earlier this week that they are engaged for the second time, but don’t hold your breath waiting around for their wedding day. Fox says she is in no hurry to walk down the aisle.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green have been dating for six years and it could be that long again before they ever actually get around to exchanging wedding vows.
“It’s going to be years!” Fox told UsWeekly.com at Thursday’s Jonah Hex premiere in Los Angeles. “I’m going to be 44 when I get married.” Of course, Megan Fox has already admitted she sometimes ‘misleads’ the press with her comments. So you never know, the couple might just pop up in a Las Vegas wedding chapel on the fly at any time.
Fox and Green were previously engaged once before, but called it off in February, 2009. They briefly split, but were soon once again an official couple later that year.
We hope that Megan Fox losing her two-carat engagement ring after getting too excited after Green’s proposal in Hawaii isn’t a bad sign this engagement is doomed to be cancelled as well.
It seemed like a foregone conclusion who would win in the Spain vs Switzerland World Cup match on Wednesday. Until a goal from Swiss player Gelson Gernandes landed in a net left empty by Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
The goal from Gelson Gernandes in the 52nd minute of the game proved to be the only one scored during the entire Spain vs Switzerland match at the FIFA World Cup on Wednesday. As a result, Switzerland ended up with a shocking upset victory over Spain – the heavy favorite to win going into the match.
“To be fair, I’m not used to scoring goals, so I was a bit surprised,” Gelson Gernandes told reporters after the game. “It was a bit of luck.”
Spain held onto the ball during a majority 63 percent of the game and made 24 shots, but just could not get past the Swiss defenses. The loss to Switzerland puts an end to Spain’s 12-game winning streak.
Switzerland will face off against Chile on Monday, while Spain will go up against Honduras later the same day.
Transformers star Megan Fox and boyfriend Brian Austin Green are engaged once again. Fox and Green have been dating on and off since 2004 and broke off their previous engagement last year.
Megan Fox was booted from Transformers 3 and replaced with a Victoria’s Secret model. That had to hurt. So we’re hoping her new engagement to boyfriend Brian Austin Green will make her feel a bit better. If it sticks this time, that is. Fox and Green were engaged to be married before, but abruptly called the engagement off last February.
Apparently the erstwhile couple are ready to give the whole engagement thing another go. Brian Austin Green reportedly proposed to Megan Fox at the beach on the Big Island in Hawaii. Fox was reportedly quite excited over the proposal, “jumping up and down,” a source told UsWeekly.com.
Maybe a bit TOO excited. Turns out Megan Fox got so worked up over her second engagement to Brian Austin Green that she lost the engagement ring in the sand at the beach. Security and staff reportedly spent hours looking for the ring but so far it hasn’t turned up yet.
ABC has pulled advertising for The View from PerezHilton.com after gossip blogger Perez Hilton sparked outrage by posting a Miley Cyrus upskirt photo that appeared to show the 17-year-old not wearing underwear.
Perez Hilton posted the Miley Cyrus upskirt photo on his Twitter feed, warning his fans not to click on the link to the photo if they were “easily offended.” The image showed Miley Cyrus awkwardly exiting a car with her legs spread and seemingly not wearing panties.
Because Miley Cyrus is underage, the photo sparked outrage from many who claimed Perez Hilton was guilty of peddling ‘child porn’ by posting the photo. Hilton shot back with a video responseon his website saying Miley Cyrus would be a “moron” for not wearing underwear and he would not be stupid enough to post a photo showing her private parts. He claims other photos taken at the same time clearly show she was not going commando under her short skirt.
Perez Hilton did, however, remove the photograph. Unfortunately for Hilton, the whole thing had already apparently gotten too out of hand for at least one of his advertising sponsors, according to FoxNews.com.
ABC reportedly pulled advertisements for The View on PerezHilton.com in the wake of the Miley Cyrus upskirt photo controversy. ABC has not commented so far on the ad pull.
MTV Networks, another of Perez Hilton’s sponsors, doesn’t seem fazed so far over the child porn accusations against Hilton. Their advertisements on PerezHilton.com for the new TV Land show Hot in Cleveland are still running.
Last, but not least, in what can only be considered a huge suck-up move, Perez Hilton posted a glowing mention of Miley Cyrus’ new single “Liberty Walk” on his website on Wednesday morning. So lame.
Gossip monger Perez Hilton of PerezHilton.com has responded to the controversy over a Miley Cyrus upskirt photo he posted by saying the pic didn’t show anything. The photo, which appears to show underage teen Miley Cyrus not wearing any underwear, sparked accusations Perez Hilton was guilty of posting child porn.
In a video response on his website to what he calls a “fake controversy,” Perez Hilton says it “seems like the whole world is thinking I posted a photo of Miley’s vagina without underwear on. Do you think Miley is that stupid to be out in public without panties?”
Hilton, who does a whole gross Basic Instinct mockery thing sans pants in the video, says Miley Cyrus is “not a moron” and neither is he. “Do you think I’m stupid enough to post a photo of Miley if she’s not wearing any underwear down there?”
“Sure, I like to be controversial but I don’t want to go to jail,” Hilton says. “People, snap out of it!”
Hilton claims other photos from the same time frame show Miley Cyrus was “clearly wearing underwear.” Hilton says he only posted the photo to show how â€œunladylike” Cyrus was acting.
First, we have to ask, if there was nothing wrong with posting the photo – why did Perez Hilton take it down after people started accusing him of trafficking in child porn? Second, Miley Cyrus is still a teenager – even if she was wearing undies, taking or posting photos snapped under her skirt is still wrong. We still consider that child porn, whether the law does or not.
Then again, we just think that’s pretty much wrong no matter who it is. Yes, even if it’s Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears flashing their goods. Obviously, Perez Hilton’s taste level is vastly different than ours.
