Patient Zero: Monica Lewinsky spoke at the Forbes Under 30 Summit yesterday. She said: "My name is Monica Lewinsky--though I've often been advised to change it. 16 years ago, fresh out of college...I fell in love with my boss. I was Patient Zero, the 1st person to have their reputation completely destroyed by the internet. What does it really feel like to see yourself, your name and your likeness, ripped apart on the internet? There are no borders to online humiliation, it feels like the world is laughing at you. I couldn't ever imagine showing my face in public ever again. I cringed. I sobbed. I yelled.''

Kris is out promoting her cookbook [In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites] so she has to spin this in a positive way.

Billy Bob Thorton tells the movie Website JoBlo that 'Bad Santa 2' is on the way.''We're just waiting for a script, ya know? We're never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it haflway so we're waiting for something that's close enough. It'll do real well I imagine and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be' but I think it should be fun and I think people who liked [the first one] will enjoy it and hopefully we'll get it off.''

It's the magical moment most parents secretly wish will end in a win for them -- baby's first word! But then it happened: first-time father Jimmy Fallon's daughter Winnie Rose gave those coveted bragging rights to mom Nancy Juvonen Fallon. Now the Tonight Show host is doing his part to ensure his fellow fathers don't miss out on the milestone by publishing his first children's book, Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada. "This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity," Fallon, 40, jokes. The sweet picture book -- available June 9 -- serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me's to say, "Dada." And his board book debut is already a best-seller in 15-month-old Winnie's eyes, who also gave the colorful illustrations two thumbs up. "My baby personally approved of the beautiful artwork by Miguel Ordónez," the proud dad says. (People)

Joan Rivers' daughter, Melissa, asked doctors not to do an autopsy on her mother -- possibly dooming any chance of finding out exactly how the comic legend died, sources said. Melissa Rivers was shattered when she decided to forgo an autopsy on her 81-year-old mom and had her remains quickly cremated after her death Sept. 4. The city Medical Examiner's Office was obliged to honor Melissa's request because there was no criminal probe, only a state regulatory investigation, into the death, sources told TMZ. The office has ruled that Rivers died of a lack of oxygen to the brain. But without an autopsy, it might be impossible to find whether deadly errors were made during the routine surgery at Yorkville Endoscopy on Aug. 28 that lead to her death. Even if a doctor or nurse came forward, their statements would be considered only eyewitness accounts, TMZ said. (Page Six)
Miley Cyrus Fan Sneaks Backstage at Singer's Concert Dressed as a Cleaner. Watch out for the wolf in custodian's clothing! Miley Cyrus superfan Anthony Skinner claims to have sneaked backstage after her Bangerz show Friday at Sydney's Allphones Arena while he was disguised as a cleaner. The 23-year-old club promoter even Instagrammed a selfie wearing the neon yellow safety vest he purportedly wore to get past security undetected. Skinner tells BBC's Newsbeat he was in the arena's car park when he noticed a cleaner's storeroom door was open. "I looked around and on the floor there's a pair of boots, and on the couch there's this hi-vis vest," he said. "My mindset was 'See how far you can take this'," he said. "It wasn't planned at all. Everything just fell into place so perfectly." Skinner put his belongings into "a wheelie bin," which he then pushed back down the ramp in the loading bay and past a security team he claims "didn't even look at me." "I had that realisation that I was in," he said. "I just thought 'Play this cool, play this cool.'" Skinner tells BBC's Newsbeat he saw "50 to 100" staff members taking apart Cyrus' Bangerz set before he headed to the green room. "There was music blaring from there," he said. "I could hear it down the end of the hallway." So what'd he do from there? "I just started emptying bins, sweeping up the floor and stuff," says the fan. "I'm cleaning up for about 40 minutes to an hour. Not pretending to clean up, actually cleaning." Finally, Skinner says a security guard told him to stand in a doorway as they "surrounded" Cyrus so she could leave the venue safely. "My whole brain just emptied. I saw her and froze. All I could get out was 'Hey'. She looked at me, smiled and just kept walking." Earlier on, Skinner says he gave "pretty much my favorite jacket of all time" to a member of the singer's tour, who assured him it would be passed along to Cyrus. "If I did actually meet her I wouldn't have anything left to do. I'd have to come up with a whole new goal," he admits. He tweeted a picture of the note (with his contact details) he planned to give to Cyrus "if I got close enough during the show." "I probably wouldn't call me," says Skinner. He tells BBC's Newsbeat he has not been contacted by Allphones arena. The venue did not immediately respond to E! News' request for comment. (Eonline)
Taylor Swift announced Monday morning that a new song called "Welcome to New York," off her upcoming album, 1989, will be available for download on iTunes Tuesday. "Welcome to New York" follows last week's "Out of the Woods" as well as the hit single "Shake It Off" of tunes that fans will be able to hear in advance of 1989's official release on Oct. 27. "I started the album with 'Welcome to New York' because New York has been an important landscape and location for the story of my life in the last couple of years," Swift said in a release. "It's like an electric city, and I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism. I saw New York as a place of endless potential and possibilities, and you can hear that reflected in this music and in this song." "Welcome to New York" was written by Taylor Swift and Ryan Tedder and produced by Tedder, Swift and Noel Zancanella. (Hollywood Reporter)
A couple weeks ago, Calvin Harris -- the top-earning DJ of 2014 -- announced Motion, his fourth studio album. The starry guest list included Big Sean, Gwen Stefani, Haim, Tinashe, and Ellie Goulding. The track with Goulding, a follow-up to the 2012 collaboration "I Need Your Love," is out now. While the "I Need Your Love" video showed Harris and Goulding on a kissy day of fun, "Outside" sounds more like a bitter parting. "I'll show you what it feels like / now I'm on the outside," Goulding sings to a light, perfectly Harrisian beat. And just in case the medium-heavy emotional content wins out over the dance-fest aspect, here's the one that's pure fun (also the one that's been viewed more than 213.2 million times on YouTube, if you're wondering how this new Goulding/Harris joint might do) (Billboard)
Channing Tatum strips
Several years ago (practically centuries in the internet world), Us Weekly managed to find this glorious footage of 18-year-old Channing Tatum working as a stripper in Florida. Now, they’ve unearthed it once again in honor of the upcoming “Magic Mike” sequel. Channing performed under the name Chan Crawford back in 1999 when boy band style was still ultra trendy (of course, Backstreet Boys fashion is always alive in my heart). Tatum has said that the people he met on the job gave him the ability to play a much wider range of characters. It also makes him even hotter, so there’s that.
