No Doubt hits the beach, er, bleach

No Doubt performed live on the Today show this morning and while I didn’t see it, I heard they sounded atrocious. Whoops. UPDATE: Here are links to today’s performance: “Don’t Speak,” “Spiderwebs” and “It’s My Life.”.

They sounded okay, not great, but that’s got a lot to do with the horrible mix. And, yes, Gwen forgot lyrics. Damn. As a singer, I can say: it happens to the best of us.

The band was especially bleached three of the with all four No Doubters sporting peroxide blonde hair and Gwen clad in what looks to be my junior high New Wave boyfriend Tom‘s bleached trousers. Noted: Ms. Stefani wore her signature 1990s hair knots, signifying she is back in full-on band mode. As opposed to solo mode, which would entail her bringing along the Harujuku Girls.

In fact, everything about Gwen reeked of her No Doubt days — the clothes, the moves — except she’s emaciated.


Anyone going to see No Doubt on its reunion tour? I’m hoping to see them in a few weeks on my visit home to Florida. It will be my first time seeing Gwen with the band. If it’s as good as her solo show, I’m in luck.

Should Madonna stop performing?


I rant at Sweaty Bitches of Rock 'N' Roll.

Stars With Shopping Carts

Time now for another installment of “Stars With Shopping Carts.” The theme: new moms. These are Hollywood ladies who have recently had a baby (not necessarily their first baby). The catch: not all the pictures are taken after the kid was born. Ready?

A still pregnant Jessica Alba with Cash Warren:

Nicole Richie and whichever Madden guy she’s with:

Gwen and Gavin:

Jamie Lynn Spears and her teen-age hubby (up to the Wal-Mart):

Angelina Jolie with Maddox or Pax, holding possibly Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne, Knox, Dasher, Dancer, Donner or Blitzen:

Matthew McConaugheyand Camilla Alves:

Stars With Shopping Carts!

I’m starting a new feature here today at GV’s GH. It’s called “Stars With Shopping Carts.” It’s pretty self-explanatory, yes? I find pictures of celebrities shopping (preferably with a cart, hence the feature name) and I post them for all of us to enjoy – or mock if that’s your bag.

Something about seeing really famous people pushing shopping carts makes me crack up. They look so ordinary, which, of course, they are. I also like to snoop at what they bought and see if they use recyclable bags (especially if they’re the type who mouths off about the protecting the environment.)

I want to do this often – this is where you come in – so if you’re galavanting across the internet and you find a pic, notify me. 

I can’t wait any longer so let’s get started! This first installment is pretty big.

Shannen Doherty (with beer!):

Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale and little Kingston:

Lance Bass (and friend, with lots and lots of toilet paper):

Katherine Heigl (stocking up on cigarettes, maybe?):

Jamie Lynn Spears:

Ryan Phillippe (and his kids with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon):

Here’s a cart-less one of Reese:

and here’s Lindsay and Sam (they sure buy a lot of groceries for two chicks who look like they haven’t eaten all year):
