- CREDIT: Entertainment Weekly
Daybreak Daily’s muddle through the ever-changing pop-culture maze finds a luxury hideout pad, a shouder on which to cry, other things, and a mystery music video from RFK Stadium.
CHILLING AT BUD’S HOUSE: He’s got a friend, per People, “His world shattered, Robert Pattinson turned to someone he knew he could count on: Reese Witherspoon. Immediately after learning his girlfriend of three years, Kristen Stewart, had cheated on him with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, Pattinson asked his friend and Water for Elephants costar if he could crash at her tranquil estate in Ojai, Calif.” http://bit.ly/OJayyd
MEANWHILE: She’s got a friend, per Radar, “She may have found herself under attack from all angles after her affair with Rupert Sanders was publicly exposed, but Kristen Stewart has found a friend in Jodie Foster, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. The Silence of the Lambs movie veteran has offered Kristen, 22, a shoulder to cry on following the revelation that she cheated on long-term boyfriend Robert Pattinson with the married Snow White and the Huntsman director.” http://bit.ly/NU30HI
AND THIS: Cry me a river, per Us Weekly, “As Pattinson attempts to relax chez Witherspoon, he is, according to another source, "a total mess . . . He's questioning everything.” An "inconsolable" Stewart, meanwhile, has been reaching out (to him) via texts and phone calls. "She's dying to save the relationship. It's the only thing she cares about," a Stewart source says.” http://bit.ly/QpIjoP
NEW GIG: For Justin Bieber’s squeeze, per The Hollywood Reporter, “Selena Gomez has lined up her next film role. The singer-actress, who most recently starred in Monte Carlo, will topline the indie film Parental Guidance Suggested. She will star opposite Nat Wolff in the offbeat coming-of-age comedy. Austin Stowell (The Secret Life of American Teenager) will co-star as the overbearing boyfriend of Gomez's character.” http://bit.ly/Qemwkk
THE JACKONZZZZZ: Come on, people, per the AP, “More than three years after Michael Jackson's death, his youngest brother continues to raise questions about the validity of the pop superstar's will. On Twitter and cable TV, Randy Jackson has called the five-page document signed in 2002 a fake.” http://apne.ws/NJ8cBa
MR. PRESIDENT: Of POTAMP, per the Los Angeles Times, “Longtime producer Hawk Koch was named president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Tuesday evening, replacing Tom Sherak, whose term was up after three years. Koch, 66, is currently the co-president of the Producers Guild of America and has been a member of the academy’s board of governors for the last eight years.” http://lat.ms/MZ4At8
CHRIS WANTS TO ROCK: And curse and stuff, per the New York Times, “Ia sumptuous beach-side house here in this coastal community north of Boston, surrounded by sand, grass, ocean and all the DVDs one could ask for, Chris Rock was feeling cooped up. “I haven’t done any dirty work in a while,” he said through the Nike-swoosh of a smirk on his face. “I’m ready to curse. I’m ready to really, really be a bad boy. I’m ready to actually be Chris Rock.” http://nyti.ms/MRwaKt
BRUNO: Gettin’ serious, per Celebuzz!, “He’s the proud owner of a new $3 million mansion and now Bruno Mars has a roommate – his girlfriend of almost a year. The pompadoured crooner, 26, and his model gal, Jessica Caban, 30, has moving in together, a source close to the singer confirmed to Celebuzz.” http://bit.ly/QetMwN
COMING TO D.C.: A cool art exhibit, per the Wall Street Journal, “Roy Lichtenstein was the sunniest of the Pop artists who conquered the New York scene during the 1960s. His paintings of square-jawed cartoon heroes and humdrum consumer objects betrayed none of the anxieties about money, fame, identity or death that riddled the work of Andy Warhol. . . A generous sample from the contents of his equable and orderly mind is now on view at the Art Institute of Chicago, where the first retrospective since his death resides through Sept. 3. (It will then travel to the National Gallery in Washington, London's Tate Modern and Paris's Centre Pompidou.) “ http://on.wsj.com/PlUwXk
