Lindsay Lohan to Perform Topless in Vegas?
Newly single and cash-strapped starlet Lindsay Lohan is in talks to perform topless in a Las Vegas burlesque show. The 22-year-old actress flew out to Las Vegas over the weekend to meet with the producers behind Peepshow, a sexy striptease production starring Spice Girl Mel B and Dancing with the Stars winner Kelly Monaco. It is rumored that Lohan will take over from Monaco once her three month contract expires sometime in June. Lindsay is reportedly very keen and, if the money’s right, she’ll do it. [FOX News]
When Strippers Attack
Fighting for job security is happening all over the country, even in an Ohio strip club. A 53-year-old woman was attacked on her first day on the job by a jealous coworker wielding a stiletto heel. The coworker was upset by the arrival of the new hire and, believing the club was already overstaffed, she repeatedly struck the new dancer in the face. The injured woman, who took the stripping job to earn extra money, has refused to press charges even though she needed seven staples to repair her face. [AP]
The 50 Fugliest Celebrity Hairstyles Ever

We can’t even begin to put together all of the trainwreck hair experiments out there, but luckily for us, the good people over at The Fab Life have put together an eye-stimulating list of the 50 fugliest celebrity hairstyles ever. This just made my day so much better. [The Fab Life]
New Photos of the Enterprise
New pictures of the Starship Enterprise from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek are here, and they’re pretty fancy. Trekkies should be stoked about the reboot if for no other reason than to see the inside of the new ship. There are about 10 times as many lights as there were in the original series, which might be blindingly jarring to old school Trekkies. Abrams talks a little bit about in-camera tricks he did with the camera to get the bright halo effect inside the Enterprise. It’s looking like we’re going to get a pretty big bang for our buck when Star Trek starts going places no person has ever gone before – again. [FirstShowing.net]
