PEAS FOR THE PEOPLE : The Black-Eyed Peas are focusing on kids, by way of their charity organization. The PEAPOD FOUNDATION , created by the pop group to “encourage social change by uniting people, especially children, through the universal language of music,” has teamed with CHARITYBUZZ for the online auction of a rare RVX-54 Klipsch Audio Speaker to support the foundation. The speaker has been autographed by members of the music community, including Fergie, Taboo, Will. I. am, Slash, LA Reid, Macy Gray, John Legend, Eve, Wyclef Jean, Common, Frankie J., and others.
AARON WHO? : Two former child stars, Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, have apparently ended their feud, as US WEEKLY reports that they were out dancing together at club Les Deux in L.A. on Friday night. The bad blood between them had reportedly been over singer Aaron Carter, who allegedly left Hilary for Lindsay in 2003. A source tells US that Lohan hugged Duff and partied by her side at the club, and that they both shared a laugh mocking Lohan’s former friend Paris Hilton. Lindsay reportedly went so far as to get up on a couch and spoof Hilton when one of her songs was played, according to the source.
RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES : Britney Spears, who is no stranger to Paris, Lindsay, and dancing at clubs, is the alleged inspiration for a character on an upcoming episode of CSI: Miami, E! ONLINE reports. The episode, about a man who dies while in rehab, is said to feature the small role of a fellow resident who is described as a “starlet who has shaved her head.” A rep for CBS (the network that airs the show) reportedly confirmed the news to E!, calling Spears’ influence “a small part of the episode.”
KATE MOSS IS OFF THE CHARTS : While no dramatic changes to her appearance have been made (such as a head-shaving), supermodel Kate Moss has apparently lost that “special something” that the readers of FHM magazine look for when voting on their annual list of the “World’s Sexiest 100 Women.” For the first time in a decade, Moss will most likely not be making the list this year, according to THE NY POST’s PAGE SIX. FHM spokesman Dan Cooper reportedly tells PAGE SIX, “She hasn’t looked great as of late. I think the average guy on the street prefers someone that’s a little more womanly.”
THE SMOKING GUNN : Speaking of supermodels, Bravo’s hit show “Project Runway” is roaring back for its fourth season, with auditions for contestants underway this week in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY interviews “Runway” star Tim Gunn about the audition process and what the showrunners expect from would-be designers looking to make a splash on TV. Hint: no “mind-numbingly dumb clothes,” please.
