Celebrity Recap - March 2004
Avril Lavigne Insults Hilary DuffReports are coming from everywhere that Avril Lavigne publically slagged fellow teen singer, Hilary Duff, in an interview with Newsweek magazine. Avril supposedly called Duff, "such a goody-goody, such a mommy's girl." This is because Hilary Duff supposedly told a reporter that Avril Lavigne didn't appreciate her fans enough. Avril Lavigne has since denied talking trash about Hil, and Hillary Duff has been quoted as saying sweet things about Avril, like this: "No, she's cool and her album is really great." (And if ya believe she means that, you probably think that Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan have sleepover parties!)
Lindsay Lohan's Stalker IssuesDisney film queen and aspiring singer, Lindsay Lohan was at a celeb hot spot on March 8, 2004 celebrating Wilmer Valderrama's (Fez from That '70s Show's) birthday, when an uninvited guest tried to crash the joint in order to get close the Lindsay. When the scary dude wasn't allowed into the bash, he called the cops and told them that Lindsay Lohan was drinking alcohol, but she wasn't. The cops reportedly told Lindsay Lohan to file a restraining order against the guy (which would make it so he legally couldn't come near her). After the cops snagged some autographs from the star of Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, they left.
R. Kelly Charges Dropped12 charges brought against rapper R. Kelly in Florida were dropped this month because a judge said the pictures that were to be used as evidence were not legally obtained (meaning that the cops didn't have the right to take them from the rapper's home).
The Simpsons Want MoneyMarge, Homer, Bart, and Lisa Simpson want more money. Well, technically it's their voices that want to get more cash. Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Nancy Cartwright (Bart), Julie Kavner (Marge), and Yeardley Smith (Lisa) have all stopped going to rehearsals for the super-cool cartoon. Other voices like Hank Azaria (Moe) and Harry Shearer (Principal Skinner) have also stopped attending. The money war has not yet affected the creation of The Simpsons cartoon and it's expected to be worked out before the whole town of Springfield has to mime their lines.
