Supermodel Kate Moss has tied the knot with boyfriend Jamie Hince of the band The Kills. Moss and Hince have dated since 2007 and became engaged earlier this year. Fashionista Moss wore a dress by John Galliano and shoes (her something blue) by famed shoe designer Manolo Blahniks. A who’s who of the fashion world was in attendance, including fellow model Naomi Campbell, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and famed photographer Mario Testino. According to Us Weekly the wedding was very rock n’ roll. The magazine reports, “It was a wham bam rock 'n' roll marriage. She came out of the church with the bridesmaids and just snogged his face off. Then the doors to the Rolls-Royce opened and rock music blared out for everyone. It was a 'Wow, Kate Moss is married' moment.” The wedding celebrations will continue through the weekend in what has been dubbed Moss-Stock. Snoop Dogg and Kanye West are expected to perform.

It Pays to Make Facebook Games

Zynga, the company behind Farmville and other online video games, is set to go public. The video game company has filed papers with the Securities and Exchange Commission to raise up to $1 billion in an IPO. If successful the company will be worth $15 to $20 billion. Zygna hopes to continue its rapid growth and will ‘make games accessible and fun, enhance existing franchises, launch new games, continue mobile growth, continue international growth, extend [its] technology leadership position’ and ‘increase monetization of its games.’ Unlike other tech companies that have recently gone public, Zygna has actually turned a profit. Last year it made $90.6 million. [New York Times]

The NBA Lockout Begins

According to reports, starting today, the NBA has officially locked out their players after the collective bargaining agreement expired. Including the NFL, this is the second professional sports league to be shut down by a labor dispute. The labor agreement ceased at midnight after the owners and players were unable to come to terms on a new contract. Salaries, salary caps and revenue sharing were some of the bigger issues the two parties strongly disagreed with each other on. Needless to say, this lockout drama puts the upcoming season in serous jeopardy. Either way, the fans are the real people who suffer. Isn’t the average NBA salary $5 million? Just saying. More to come… [NBA]

Spike Lee Goes Off on the Oscars and Insane Actors

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, outspoken director Spike Lee sounded off about why he thinks actors are so insane and how the Oscars really don’t matter at all. Known for saying a few questionable statements in the past, Lee actually made some pretty valid points along the way. Lee stated: "The reason why actors are f***ed up; can you imagine having a job where someone is, ‘No, no, no. Your butt’s too big. Your heads to big. You’re too skinny. Your nose is too big?'” Very true, Spike. As for the Academy that rudely snubbed his 1989 landmark Do The Right Thing for a Best Picture nomination, Lee explained why he thought the system of how they pick the winners is totally backwards. “In 1989, 'Do the Right Thing' was not even nominated,” Lee said. “What film won best picture in 1989? 'Driving Miss Mother F***ing Daisy!' That’s why [Oscars] don’t matter. Because 20 years later, who’s watching 'Driving Miss Daisy'?...” The man just has a way with words, guys. [THR]
