The Art Of The Celebrity Retraction


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Occasionally we get it wrong. Sorry Madonna, Katy Perry & Brad Pitt.

Thank the lord, we're a little behind schedule and didn't have time to comment on Brad and Angelina's $200 million prenup. Egg would be all up on these eager grills of ours. Star reported that the 2 (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) were set to marry but needed to execute a tricky bit of paperwork detailing the outcomes of certain ugly eventualities. Also, Star speaks as if a new round of twins is fact. Dangerous ground. When in doubt the words 'alleged' and 'reportedly' covers all matter of half-truths and omissions. Yahoo OMG says horse feathers (and flapdoodle) to both the pregnancy and the massive prenup. We'd like to take this time to apologize to any and every celebrity injured by our callousness, even though we didn't mention any of this stuff yet.

Yeesh. Celeb Love wrote about Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony having some marital discord today. Let's hope we nailed this one, otherwise it's back to the groveling for your forgiveness board.


At least Tom Cruise has some sense of humor (fake or real) about these goofball rumors. He and Dave Letterman ran through a top ten list of false Tom Cruise rumors over the years. See below, we are so glad we never printed that thing about his super natural belief in the power of Vicks Vapo Rub (whew):

Do we get an apology for our apology when some of this stuff turns out to be true? What if Tom Cruise does still wear those skivvies from Risky Business? Too hilarious to even seriously consider.
