Dirt: Shia Scuffles, Christina Fails & Lindsay Denies
CHRISTINA’S ANTHEM FAIL: Even though CHRISTINA AGUILERA had a couple of weeks to practice singing the National Anthem, she still managed to muck it up.
When she was supposed to sing the line “O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming,” she instead repeated an earlier line, with a slight variation. She sang “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming,” which is the same line from earlier in the song but with the word ‘watched’ instead of the word ‘hailed.’
In a statement released late last night, Christina said, “I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through.”
Here’s video of her entire performance …
May I ask why we can’t just get a STRAIGHT RENDITION of our National Anthem anymore? Why does everyone feel like they have to put in all those extra notes? Just sing it the way it was written, for gosh sakes!
MEANWHILE …CAMERON DIAZ can no longer deny or act coy when asked if she’s rubbing forbidden areas with ALEX RODRIGUEZ because cameras caught her feeding A-Rod popcorn – and we all know only lovahs partake in that type of intimate behaviour …

LaBEOUF PUNCHED AND CUFFED, BUT NOT STUFFED:SHIA LaBEOUF found himself in handcuffs early Saturday morning. Shia was allegedly being taunted by a fellow patron at a bar in Sherman Oaks, California, and then according to an eyewitnesses who spoke to the gossip site Hollyscoop, “we just saw him charging for some guy.”
According to a RadarOnline source, some guy started taunting Shia, and called him that gay slur that starts with the letter “F”. “Shia shot back that he was going to ‘kick his (effing) ass’…then lunged at him. But the other guy got the first punch in, (hitting) Shia hard in the face and splitting his lip.”
The brawl was broken up by LAPD officers who just happened to be passing by. LaBeouf was handcuffed while officers assessed the situation and was released afer about 20 minutes. The alleged sucker punching patron “fled” before police arrived.
The dude’s name is Mark Mastro …And he tells RadarOnline he initially approached Shia very respectfully, asking if he’d take a picture with his girlfriend. He says, quote, “[Shia] didn’t want anything to do with me. He said he just wanted to chill and refused to do photos. I walked away.”
Later that night they were on the patio, when they saw Shia and his crew leaving the bar. One of Mark’s friends said, quote, “What’s up, Shia?” And Shia – who allegedly was SMASHED – replied, quote, “Get the (eff) out of my way.” That’s the point the gay slur was dropped.
Mark says, quote, “He charged at me! I jumped over the patio fence onto the sidewalk to get away from him. But he kept coming after me. He was getting in my face. He was talking (crap). He was chest-bumping me.”
He said Shia was cuffed and put in a cop car, but HE wasn’t so he left. RadarOnline has the “World Exclusive” video of Shia in police custody HERE, but it’s really not worth the commercial you have to sit through to watch it.
LOHAN LUNACY: 1.) LINDSAY LOHAN will be charged with a felony in connection with that necklace she’s accused of stealing, TMZ reports, and the charge could come as early today. However, a spokeswoman for the L.A. County D.A. denies that a decision has been made.
Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, says, “We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court
2.)Word over the weekend is that her defense to the accusations is that she was told by the owner of the jewelry shop she could borrow the necklace. There is the matter of an existing surveillance video which the jewelry store turned over to police, but we’ve learned it could work in Linds favor because it doesn’t disprove her claims since there’s no audio. sources connected with the case say that fact alone is lindsay’s best hope of avoiding prosecution. In other words, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, GRRL!
SNAPSHOT: Linds and KANYE WEST at the grand opening of a high-end shoe store in Beverly Hills Friday …
We hope Linds paid for any shoes she might have left with!
LEA MICHELE’S CLEAVAGE PEEVES PARENTS: LEA MICHELE is under fire again for another sexy photo shoot. The “Glee” star was criticized for a racy “GQ” pictorial last year, and now her ‘Cosmo” cover is catching heat.
According to Fox News, Lea’s plunging neckline has parents like New York mom Kim Trefcer questioning her fashion choices of late. “She plays such a ‘good girl’ on Glee,” Ms. Trefcer is quoted as saying, “and a lot of kids look up to her persona. Then she poses very provocatively on two magazine covers which makes my almost-13-year-old son very confused and offended.”
DID RIHANNA RIP-OFF THE IDEA FOR HER NEW VID??? WE REPORT, YOU DECIDE!!!:Did RIHANNA rip-off famous photographer David LaChapelle in her new video for “S&M”??? Peep the pics and I’m betting you’ll get a sense of deja-vu too!!
A source with LaChapelle’s said he has worked with Rihanna in the past, but was definitely not involved in any way with the video. He found out about the similarities between the video and his work when his staff started getting a lot of Twitter and Facebook messages about the video.’s similarities to his work. LaChapelle thinks the video’s director used pictures from his past Italian Vogue shoots and mimicked them for the video. No comment from Rihanna or her peeps.
