According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Justin was recently enjoying a night out at NYC’s Avenue in Chelsea when Lindsay Lohan attempted to dance with him. But a source claims that JT “shooed her away.” Might want to work on your popping-and-locking a bit more LiLo.
Is Chris Daughtry A JT Replacement For Cougars?: It appears that cougars have been prowling Justin Timberlake’s NYC barbecue joint, Southern Hospitality, hoping to pounce on the pop star – but Chris Daughtry will apparently do if JT is MIA. According to the New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher a lovely older lady recently approach Chris while he was celebrating at JT’s restaurant with members of The Fray and OneRepublic and purred, “I came here hoping to see Justin Timberlake, but it was great meeting you, too.” Chris took it in stride, saying, “Glad I could fill in!” Someone knows how to keep his fan base happy!
James Franco Goes Spoken Word: Actor, author and grad student James Franco can add spoken word artist to his resume. According to Page Six, the actor recently recorded passages by Jack Kerouac, Leo Tolstoy and Benjamin Franklin for Lapham’s Quarterly’s Travel issue on their Web site.

Bruno’s GQ Cover Censored!: Sacha Baron Cohen’s GQ July cover, upon which he appears nude as his Bruno character, is apparently too racy for commuters in airports and train stations. According to New York Times’ Media Decoder blog, Hudson News, which operates 500 newsstands across the country, has covered up Bruno’s tush with a black pane on its newsstands, in order to avoid offending people. If it’s any consolation Sacha, Jennifer Aniston’s racy GQ was censored in the same way, so this must mean you’ve officially arrived!
