Happy Monday, Hollywire fans!! The Golden Globes were this weekend (aka Hollywood's biggest party), which is why this week's Weekend Rumor Mill is dedicated to the event. We've got the reasons why Jennifer Lopez pulled out of presenting duties, Lindsay Lohan crashing both Pre- and Post-Globes parties, Elton John's husband slamming Madonna's win, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore run-in, and Emma Roberts making a move on... Jared Leto!
Let's start things off with Jennifer Lopez dropping out as a Golden Globes presenter. Apparently there is a bit of awards season drama going on amongst the various awards shows causing celebs to pick and choose where they present. According to Page Six, J.Lo dropped out of the Golden Globes after receiving an email warning her that if she presented at the Globes, she'd be banned from presenting at the Oscars. A source said, "There have been complaints about this from the studios and the agencies. The Globes lost Jennifer Lopez as a presenter, but many other stars took the view that they don't want to be told what to do."
Continuing on with a Globes feud, Elton John's hubby David Furnish was livid over Madonna's acceptance speech at last night's Golden Globe Awards, calling it "embarrassing in its narcissism." Furnish expressed his disappointment for Madonna's Best Original Song win via Facebook, writing, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!" Later adding, "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is." Elton himself had to be shocked by the win because he told reporters on the red carpet that Madonna had no "f**kin' chance" of winning, TMZ reports. Yikes!! Can't wait to hear Madge's response.
Lindsay Lohan proved to be quite the spotlight stealer this weekend (as per usual) as she snuck her way into the Pre-Globe Weinstein Company party. The Huffington Post reported that LiLo crashed the Weinstein Co.'s Globes bash at the Chateau Marmont by having "snuck in through the hotel's back entrance." Once inside, LiLo made her way to the entrance to take advantage of all the photo ops, alongside Golden Globe nominees Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo and Michelle Williams. And to make matters worse, Lindsay was spotted flirting with another questionable character -- Jeremy Piven. An insider told Pagesix, "while Michelle Williams and Bradley Cooper mingled, Lohan, in a tight ponytail, was flirting and chatting with Piven. He seemed interested."
Speaking off odd couples at Golden Globes parties... let's talk about Emma Roberts and Jared Leto. Emma, who was recently linked to Glee star Chord Overstreet, made a move on Jared, reports say. According to Pagesix, Emma "flirtatiously" introduced herself to Jared at W magazine's Golden Globe party at the Chateau Marmont on Friday night. The actress introduced herself in a rather cute way, saying, "Hi, I'm Emma. I think we made awkward eye contact at a party before." Not the best pick-up line, but when your Emma Roberts it probably doesn't take much to land a man. But we all agree that she's too young (and too classy) for a guy like Jared, yes??
Talking about awkward party moments, right smack dab in the middle of their divorce, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore showed up at the same Pre-Golden Globes Party. Gossipcop reports that the two were friendly during their run-in at the CAA party at the exclusive Soho House Friday night. Fellow partygoers said that the two stars exchanged hellos and chatted briefly before going their separate ways. Kutcher was also spotted hanging with Demi's daughter Rumer Willis at the party.
That's it for this week's Golden Globe edition of the Weekend Rumor Mill. Hope you enjoyed getting all caught up on your Hollywood gossip.
