Lindsay Lohan Enters Rehab
After months of pleading she does not have a drug problem, Lindsay Lohan has checked herself into rehab. The move is seen as a way for Lohan to avoid serving any jail time. Lohan was filmed entering Pickford Lofts, a rehab facility started by her new lawyer (and OJ Simpson’s former attorney) Robert Shapiro. Lohan had a very busy first day in rehab, receiving visits from her ex (Sam Ronson), her mother, sister, assistant, and rumored new gal pal Eilat Anschel. It is likely authorities will see right through Lohan’s stint in rehab, especially since she was recently found clean of any drugs or alcohol while wearing a court ordered SCRAM bracelet. Lohan is due to turn herself in on Tuesday and begin to serving a 90-day jail sentence. [TMZ]
Pink Rushed to Hospital
Rocker Pink has taken a nasty fall while performing in Germany. The singer was rushed directly from the stage to the hospital. Pink has recently taken to perform Cirque du Doleil-inspired aerobatic dances like the ones she performed at the recent Grammys but was not properly attached to her harness. She tweeted on her way to the hospital, “To all my nurnberg fans- I am so so so sorry to end the show that way.I am embarassed and very sorry. I'm in ambulance now but I will b fine.” The singer said she was waiting to have x-rays taken and hoped the fall "at least looked cool." She's expected to make a full recovery. [Gossip Cop]

After drinking herself to death in the last few years, Amy Winehouse has apparently promised that she'll release a new album by January 2011. "The album will be six months at the most," Winehouse told Metro UK. "It's going to be very much the same as my second album, where there's a lot of jukebox stuff and songs that are… just jukebox, really. I just can't wait to have new songs on stage, really," Winehouse added. We’ll believe when we see it. [NME]
John Daly Could Actually Win this Thing
John Daly stopped being a championship contender on the PGA Tour 60 pounds and a pair of bankruptcy claims ago. His lack of work ethic and love of Hooters hot wings have made him an afterthought in the championship ring… Until now! As of today, Daly is tied for third place at the British Open, ahead of both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. If this guy keeps it up, tournament organizers are going to have to brace for one hell of a championship party and a very un-British-like trophy ceremony. [ESPN]
Mediocre Film Maker Buys Mediocre Basketball Team
Mandalay Entertainment CEO Peter Gruber, who brought us films like Vision Quest and Into the Blue will be able to sort of entertain fans in a completely different arena after he purchased the Golden State Warriors earlier today. “Peter and I intend to do what we do best—innovating and building. It is our passion to return the Warriors to greatness and build nothing short of a championship organization that will make all of us in the Bay Area proud," said his partner Joe Lacob. The first step to returning the Warrior to greatness will likely involve figuring out when the Warriors were ever great. [Yahoo!]
