Lindsay Lohan’s Provocative Threesome Shoot

Lindsay Lohan got her kink on for a saucy magazine pictorial inspired by Kate Moss and Johnny Depp’s intense relationship. The photographs, which appear in Muse magazine, show Lohan revealing her bottom and breasts as she partakes in a naughty threesome. Lohan apparently did the spread in the name of art. Photographer Yu Tsai says, "The three of them were very sensual and provocative, but Lindsay understands this piece was created not for any sensational value other than artistic integrity." Art, attention—they’re the same, right? [Huffington Post]

Billy Joel’s Daughter Reportedly Attempts Suicide

Alexa Ray Joel, the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, was reportedly rushed to hospital over the weekend after attempting suicide. A caller to 911 from the 23-year-old’s home told the dispatcher Alexa had “taken pills.” Paramedics arrived and found Alexa suffering breathing difficulties. A publicist for the family said, “Alexa is stable. Her doctors are assessing her needs and that’s all we can say this moment.” Police are saying “the suspected drug overdose may have been part of an attempted suicide.” [Radar Online]

Mel Gibson Takes a Trip to Veracruz

All signs point to Mel Gibson making a new film in Veracruz, Mexico. We have word directly from the Governor himself that Gibson was there, as Fidel Herrera said recently that a section of the Ignacio Allende prison will be vacated “because a grand production will be filmed there with our friend, the actor and producer Mel Gibson.” Our interest is officially piqued. Gibson also made Apocalypto in Veracruz. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon as to what the actor/director has up his sleeve. [Hollywood Reporter]

McG is McCrazy

Music director/film director/hack McG is under the assumption (which we can only hope is false) that he’ll be the man helming the next two Terminator movies. The rights to the Terminator franchise, owned now by Halcyon, are up for sale, so it’s hard to know exactly where this property will land. Wherever it goes, McG, after giving the world the disappointment of Terminator Salvation, seems to think he’s entitled not to one, but two more attempts. Perhaps he knows something we don’t, or perhaps he’s just one of those very special people who has an indefatigable sense of optimism. [First Showing]

50 Cent to Collaborate With Susan Boyle?!

Yes, you heard us right. 50 Cent wants to collaborate with Susan Boyle. Fiddy is apparently is a huge fan of the Britain's Got Talent star and would like to do a duet with her in the very near future. He said: "She's got an amazing voice, and together we'd get everyone dancing. I'm always looking to do something new and she's cool, so I'll ask somebody to let her know." He also added to the Daily Mirror: "I got to get her on a track, for real. We'd make a hit." This could quite possibly be the worst idea in the history of music. [Contact Music]

Disgraced Referee Wants People to Realize He’s a Good Guy

During his interview on 60 Minutes last night, former NBA referee and federal inmate Tim Donaghy explained that he is not the monster people are making him out to be and not guilty of fixing NBA games. The felon/official explained that he only bet on NBA games based on how other referees were fixing them and never directly profited from his own biased calls. [LA Times]

SWAT Team Takes Down Man Armed With LEGO Gun

According to the National Post, a Toronto man who happens to be a big LEGO fan, was working in a downtown office on Friday when the replica gun made from LEGO that he’d ordered from online retailer BrickGun arrived. He assembled the model and later closed his office door for a conference call and that’s when someone who could see in his window from a neighboring building called police to report lone man sitting in an office with a gun. The SWAT team was dispatched and the incident ended with the man cuffed against a wall while six officers armed with assault rifles and shotguns secured the LEGO. Fortunately, no one was injured and there are no charges pending, but consider it a lesson about what can go wrong when LEGO is put to more nefarious use.  Maybe stick to the Star Wars sets next time.

Virgin Galactic Unveils Spaceship Two

Virgin Galactic has unveiled their latest take on manned space travel for the immediate future: SpaceShipTwo. The craft comes complete with matching mothership, WhiteKnightTwo, and will be officially unveiled today in the Mojave Desert just after dark. In the future, WK2 will carry SS2 to above 50,000 feet (16 kilometers) before the spaceship is dropped and fires her rocket motor to launch into space. [Space Fellowship]
