Swift and Bieber Fragrance Sales Stink - Apparently
no one wants to smell like Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift. Perfume giant
Elizabeth Arden’s stock dropped 25 percent on Tuesday, and the company is
blaming it on the major tank in sales of two of its biggest name celebrity
perfumes: Biebz and T. Swift...According to the "New York Post," sales
for the quarter ended on June 30th and experienced a 24.8-percent drop from last
year, topping off at $191.7 million. The company said in a statement that Swift
and Bieber’s scents suffered a serious decline in sales resulting in the
company’s stinky financial situation...BusinessInsider said that the company
would focus on “stabilizing business” to “rebuild profitability,” but
would still be “challenged by the same factors that that affected recent
quarters.” So clearly Bieber and Swift aren’t going anywhere… yet.
Taylor Swift, J-Hud, More are Changing the World- Taylor
Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and Eva Longoria among those featured in “Marie
Claire’s” “20 Women Changing the World.” Others on the list include

100 grams of marijuana in his apartment last Thursday...The bust was part of
China cracking down on celebrity drug offenders. Jaycee is also accused of
“hosting others to take drugs,” and could face up to three years in jail. So
far, Jackie hasn’t commented on his son’s situation.

More Super Bowl Half-Time Rumors - Last
week there were rumors that Carrie Underwood had nabbed the coveted gig of Super
Bowl Half-Time performer, but now a new report in the “Wall Street Journal”
has thrown three more names in the mix...According to the paper, the NFL has
“narrowed down the list” of potential candidates Katy Perry, Rihanna and
Coldplay...No one at the NFL is commenting,
but the paper did drop another interesting bit of information about the
gig. The “WSJ” claims the NFL wants next year’s performer to pay the
league a portion of their touring income in exchange for the halftime spot.

Katharine McPhee Playing the Kissing Game with Co-Star - Note
to Katharine McPhee – if you want to mess around with guys that AREN’T your

Mariah Carey Hitting The Road - Mariah
Carey is hitting the road but you’ll be using a lot of frequent flier miles if

offered me this job and I said, ‘Sure, why not have me read the script?
Let’s talk money.’” That sounds promising!
Jennifer Lawrence's Failed TV Pilot Surfaces - When
you think of Jennifer Lawrence, you probably think Oscars. When you think of
Alison Brie, you think either "Community" or "Mad Men."

from the 2007 failed show "Not Another High School Show" is so painful
to watch...The Comedy Central pilot was supposed to capitalize on the "Not
Another Teen Movie" success, but the show didn't go beyond one episode.

the school's principle, is tasked with bringing "Wolfis Teenagius"
down...As for Lawrence, she makes an appearance as a fellow high schooler
