Returning from her recent trip to India, where she was filming her upcoming reality show The Price of Beauty, Jessica Simpson showed off a Henna tattoo.

Nice to see she picked up some new ink while visiting that wonderful nation. Too bad she couldn't pick up any singing or acting talent while she was there.

"The intricate Mehndi designs are typically Indian, and made with a turmeric paste," her rep tells London's Daily Mail of Jessica Simpson's new tattoo.

"They're worn at wedding ceremonies and are supposed to bring good luck to eligible single women in India. It's a big style statement. These extremely intricate designs usually take hours to apply by hand using a brush. The artists are very skilled."

Unlike a certain "artist" we know. Sorry.

What do you think of Jessica Simpson's new tattoo?

While in India, Jessica also got a bindi dot on her forehead (above, left) as she hit up a Bollywood party at the capital's glitzy Vie Lounge earlier this week.

Simpson was a guest of Neha Dhupia, the Indian "beauty ambassador" on the singer's show. We don't know what that means, but it sounds really awesome.

Simpson's upcoming reality show, scheduled to air on VH1, documents what beauty means in different cultures. It also documents her being a moron a lot.

When fans start streaming into movie theaters for the opening of New Moon later this month, they'll undoubtedly bring high expectations with them.

Director Chris Weitz says audiences may also want to carry a box of tissues.

As Edward

"We've tried our best to deliver on the romantic scenes in the film, and I would like to be able to produce more tears than any movie before, if possible," Weitz told People this week.

Good luck topping Titantic, New Moon! We're still drying our eyes from Jack's heroic sinking into the ice cold ocean at the conclusion of that epic. Fortunately, his heart will go on... and on...

Weitz also said he admires how well the young cast is handling the constant media attention on their personal and professional lives. (For example, did you hear that Robsten broke up?!?)

"What I've realized is that they have a very tough job – not just playing the characters that they play, but living lives that are now very much under scrutiny all the time," he said. "They're smart kids... they've got good heads on their shoulders. They'll be all right."

Over the last few weeks, as we inch closer to November 20, more and more pictures from the movie have been released. View them all now in our New Moon photo gallery!

Tuesday's premiere of the Michael Jackson documentary (follow the link for our This Is It review) was so star-studded, you'd swear it were an MJ concert, circa 1985.

Even in death, the late King of Pop can draw a crowd few other entertainers could even imagine, one sporting red carpet fashions that he would surely approve of.

Earlier, we pitted American Idol stars Adam Lambert and David Cook against one another. Now it's time for a fashion face-off featuring a pair of glamorous gals.

Both Paris Hilton and Katy Perry wore black, appropriately for the occasion, in dramatically different ways. Which of the two hotties looked better?

This week on The City, Whitney Port went on another date with Freddie Fackelmayer, while Jay Lyon also wanted to know the status of their relationship.

Below, THG staff members pick apart the latest episode of the Whitney-centric Hills spinoff, awarding and deducting points as we see fit throughout ...

In the opening moments, we learn that Whit basically booty-called Jay Lyon while he was back in town, then quit him for good. Hence the title. Plus 8.

Kelly says how she started her own company to promote things she believes in. Wow, now our interns are even less motivated to write this. Minus 2.

Olivia Palermo actually interacts with Roxy and Whitney this week! Amazing. It's almost as if she has a reason for being on the show. Almost. Plus 4.

Freddie Fackelmayer invites his father, Fridolin, out to dinner with Whitney. Minus 2 for Fred's faux pas, and Minus 1 more because Fridolin was so awk.

It takes Roxy Olin 12 seconds to realize Olivia is bad at her job and painful in general. She's perceptive, but Minus 1 because we still had to tolerate Olivia.

This is off-topic, but Roxy was on Brothers & Sisters this week and wasn't terrible. The fact that her parents are both on that show helps, but still, Plus 5.

Could MTV have set Whitney up with a lamer guy? Dude fake tans, bleaches his teeth, spends way too lonf on his hair and is not even interesting! Minus 10.

Samantha Swetra and Whitney debate if a dude can be a socialite. We don't know the answer, but if so, Whitney's fake boyfriend is so the epitome. Plus 2.

How long until Erin Kaplan goes postal on Olivia? Plus only 2, because they're dragging it out and she's too passive-aggressive, not aggressive-aggressive.

We never thought we'd say it, but we missed Jay Lyon. He's not without fault, but at least the guy has personality. Too bad this was just a cameo. Minus 3.

TOTAL: +2. SEASON TOTAL: -15. Scores were boosted by Olivia's integration into the rest of the show and the remergence of Jay and romantic tension.

It's got a long way to go, but positive steps, City. Positive steps.

From the stage of American Idol to the red carpet of a major movie premiere.

David Cook and Adam Lambert have come a very long way.

The singers are each talented, handsome and, by all accounts, solid, moral, well-behaved individuals. But we're forcing Cook and Lambert to turn against one another below!

Posing for photos at the premiere of Michael Jackson's This Is It, both crooners might as well have been donning boxing gloves. Because it's totally on! Compare and contrast their looks and then vote in the proceeding poll...

Corey Feldman's wife, Susie Sprague (also known as Susie Feldman), filed for divorce from the actor last week after seven years of marriage, according to reports.

In her filing, she cited the nondescript irreconcilable differences as the reason.

Guess she is no longer standing by him. Sorry. You knew that was coming.

Susie Feldman wants legal and physical custody of their 5-year-old son, Zen, and for Corey to pay spousal and child support. She wants her ex to have visitation.

Corey and Susie Feldman married on the set of The Surreal Life in 2002, nine months after meeting at a club. Things appeared to be going well until recently.

Corey Feldman and Susie Sprague Feldman last year.

"Six years together and we're still in love," Corey Feldman said in 2007, crediting his wife and son with helping him break free of a spiral of depression and drugs.

"Whereas I used to get depressed or neurotic or dwell on things, I see my son's eyes in the morning, and suddenly, I don't feel depressed anymore," he said.

"There's nothing to be depressed about when you've got that."

Or those Susie Feldman nude Playboy pics. Nothing to get down about there. Quite the opposite, in fact. Okay, this is getting a little weird now. Sorry.

We hope they are able to settle their differences amicably.

Kevin Jonas is getting married.

Nick Jonas has formed a band called Nick Jonas & the Administration.

As a result, talk has spread that the siblings have grown apart and a group break-up isn't far behind.

Fortunately, the brothers cleared up this rumor in a letter they wrote to fans prior to a concert in Venezuela this week. Nick started, addressing his new, aforementioned creation:

“We’ve said from the beginning of our career as the Jonas Brothers that anything we do outside of the group is a side project because you can’t break up brothers. My brothers are my biggest supporters, and were on the phone with me everyday while I was in the studio asking how it was going, and telling me they couldn’t wait to hear the record.”

Brothers of Jonas

In a message obtained by People, Joe and Kevin chimed in:

“We are so proud of our brother Nick. We know that we will be doing music together for the rest of our lives. But we are thrilled for you to hear these songs that were on his heart.”

In the end, they wrote: “We plan to make music together for as long as we can... You are truly the best fans in the world, and we love you with all our hearts.”

Hear that, fans? Your screams can now, once again, go from horror over a rumored to break-up to excitement over a long, adorable future of Jonas Brothers' music!

Dancing with the Stars eliminated two of its more boring contestants this week.

We actually wrote that opening line before watching the show, as season nine's cast is so weak that pretty much anyone on the chopping block qualifies as unentertaining.

Last night, viewers gave the boot to Melissa Joan Hart and Louie Vito, but the actress didn't go quietly. She laid a guilt trip on all of America, saying post-elimination:

"It's tough, I was hoping to make it one more week. My husband was coming next week with my kids."

  • Mark Ballas and Melissa Joan Hart
  • Chelsie Hightower and Louie Vito

Vito was a bit more graceful in defeat. He told the audience:

"It's a lot harder than it looks, dealing with frustration, nerves, because you're doing something you're not comfortable with in front of millions of people. Every day I got out there and danced, I was proud of myself just for getting out there."

Next week, Dancing with the Stars will eliminate two more celebs. As host Tom Bergeron put it, this will "thin the herd."

i.e. Speed up this incredibly lackluster season of a typically enthralling competition.

This Is It, the documentary created from footage of Michael Jackson's last rehearsals for what supposed to be a final 50-show run in London this summer, is not a Thriller by any means. But if you're a fan, you'll still love it.

The film, which premiered last night, felt like a trip down memory lane, a riveting live concert, and a behind-the-scenes documentary all rolled into one.

Whatever his private struggles and addictions may have done to him, they aren't evident here as Michael Jackson is vivid, smooth and polished at 50.

When Sony paid $60 million for the rights to 100 hours of rehearsal footage to pare down to two, we still wondered if that could make a decent film.

It did.

When you're working with an unparalleled music icon, that's a plus. A quarter-century later, we see Michael singing "Bad," "Billie Jean," "Wanna Be Starting Something" and other hits, moving just as fluidly as in his heyday.

This Is It Movie Poster

The music conjures back memories and breaks one's heart. The elaborate sets, 3-D graphics and dancers are also a sight to behold on the big screen.

It is perhaps the portrait of Michael Jackson himself that really makes This Is It worth seeing, however. A perfectionist with a sense of humor, deeply troubled but deeply caring, he was a man who his fans know was not easily put in a box.

The best, and most undeniable thing you can say about Jackson was that he was an artiste. This is obviously the best possible spin on his final days, but nevertheless an honest one. For two hours, it's all about Michael the musician.

No Dr. Conrad Murray, no paternity tests, no drugs, no legal problems.

It's a beautiful thing.

If nothing else, it's a great chance to pay tribute and gaze in amazement one last time at a singer, dancer, icon and entertainer who influenced so many.

This Is It is running only two weeks, though that may be extended depending on how it's received - in 99 countries as of today and 110 by this weekend.
