Parick Stewart Clarifies Pizza Comment

So Captain Jean-Luc Picard HAS journeyed into the realm of delicious Italian food, after all!

(and, duh!) Patrick Stewart got a lot of attention for his Twitter post yesterday, showing him, in his own words, enjoying his “first ever pizza slice.” In reality, he HAS had pizza, he just doesn’t eat it often (and started late!). Says Stewart via People:

“People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar,” the British-born actor and Brooklyn resident says.

“But nevertheless,” Stewart, 72, said in his own defense, “this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hungover yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink – and she was right. It solved the problem.”

But as for the question about his past pizza experience, Stewart said, “In fact, it was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was ‘There’s no knife and fork.’ “

I LOVE hearing about Stewart being hung over. And, to be honest, the star really DIDN’T start eating pizza until his 20′s, which is weird! Stewart said he was in his 20s before he had even laid eyes upon a pizza.

“I know that will sound bizarre to you,” he said, “but I grew up in a small community in northern England.”

Well, better make up for lost time, Patrick! Delicious, delicious lost time…

Rihanna Loves The Pain of a Bikini Wax

Rihanna really does find pleasure in pain…even if the pain is for beauty’s sake!

Sources at Dlisted reports that the staff Fuzz Wax Bar in Toronto know firsthand about RiRi loving a little waxing painfulness!  RiRi came in for a Brazilian wax one day and told them that she didn’t want any numbing cream, because she loves the pain the experience gives her!

Now, to be honest, I’ve never had a brazilian (TMI? Sorry, lovahs!)  but that numbing cream is a standard in the process.  Riri, however, refused this part of the waxing, saying, “no way, I love the pain,” Rihanna tells the esthetician. “It feels good to me.”

On top of that, she never made a peep during her full bikini wax. The salon staff says the walls are very thin, so they could tell Rihanna was actually enjoying herself. “She was singing and humming songs all through the treatment,” says the source. “None of us could stop laughing.”

Oh, RiRi.  You’re an odd bird, aren’t you?

David Arquette and Courteney Cox Finalize Divorce

Aw, this is kind of the end of an Era…

I kinda thought Courteney Cox and David Arquette would get back together, because if anyone could make it, these two could. Sadly, I was mistaken!

According to People, a  final judgment for their divorce was put in the books on Tuesday at the Los Angeles Superior Court.  This officially ends their more than decade-long marriage, an unceremoniously, at that!

Cox, 48, and Arquette, 41, announced their separation back in October 2010 and both filed divorce papers on the same day in June 2012. It was a super friendly divorce, with both seeking joint custody of their 8-year-old daughter Coco, and let me tell you, the two didn’t have a bad word to say about one another!

“He’s my best friend in the world,” the Cougar Town star said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January. “I love him.”

The following week, Arquette told People, “She’s incredible. … I love her, too, and she’s an amazing person, a beautiful person.”

GAH! What happened, then?! I’m dying to know!

Adam Levine Loves His Country…He Promises!

I’m not a big Adam Levine fan, but this made me angry!

The Maroon 5 frontman sparked a huge controversy after an offhanded remark on Tuesday’s results episode of The Voice, in which he was overheard muttering “I hate this country” after his contestants Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were eliminated due to lack of viewer votes. And then, I guess people were SOOO pissed of that he had to apologize? Come ON.

Says Levine:

“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration,” Levine explained to Us Weekly. Some Twitter followers called out Levine’s slam as unpatriotic, insensitive and uncalled for; the singer initially responded via Twitter by defining the terms “joke,” “humorless,” “lighthearted” and “misunderstand.” Others agreed with Levine’s outrage over the elimination results.

“Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results,” continued Levine, whose team member Amber Carrington still has a shot at winning this season on the NBC singing competition.

“I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show,” he continued.

Good response. I mean, come ON, people.  Do celebs have to monitor every little thing they say?!
