Taylor Momsen jokes about the Catholic church

In addition to modeling for Madonna's Material Girl clothing collection, Taylor Momsen appears to also be modeling herself after Madonna, criticizing the Catholic church in a racy new interview.

In a recent chat with a New Zealand radio station, the 17-year-old "Gossip Girl" star dissed Catholicism and also joked that she once had sex with a priest.

"I was raised Catholic," said Momsen, according to Us Weekly.

The aspiring musician, who also performs with the band the Pretty Reckless, said she wrote the song "Going Down" to address the issue of priests who prey on children.

"It seemed like a very fitting song to write at the time," explained Momsen, who also dished about her love of sex toys in the interview. "It was kind of a '[expletive] you' to all the molestation going on. It was just insane."

'Mad Men' goes back to Cali

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for the Sunday, August 8 episode of AMC’s "Mad Men."

On this week’s episode of "Mad Men," everything happened and nothing happened. It was a decidedly Don-centric hour, and we learned that goodbyes suck and Don is capable of striking out with the ladies on both coasts.

With the offices of SCDP closed for the New Year’s holiday, Don took a detour in California on his way to Acapulco to visit Anna Draper, widow of the real Don Draper.

The palpable shift in Don’s personality is so refreshing when he makes the trip out West, and his chemistry with Anna is wonderfully warm and familial. I found myself thinking it would be a shame if something were to happen to this relationship, perhaps the only honest relationship Don has. Sigh.

Dev Patel: It's not easy being an Asian actor

One would think in the aftermath of an Oscar-winning success like “Slumdog Millionaire,” juicy roles for the film's 20-year-old star, Dev Patel, would fall from the sky, but that hasn’t exactly been the case, he told U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail.

“Because ‘Slumdog’ was such a big hit there was a lot of pressure in terms of what I did next,” Patel said. “For my second film I wanted a role that would stretch me, but all I was getting offered were stereotypical parts like the goofy Indian sidekick.”

The actor, who still lives with his parents in suburban London and can be found riding public transit, has been holding out for roles that will highlight his versatility, even though in Hollywood those parts seem to come few and far between for Asian actors, he said.

Fresh meat on 'Jersey Shore'

The more the merrier?

New “Jersey Shore” housemate Deena Nicole Cortese, 23, has joined the cast as they film new episodes in Seaside Heights. But the “chill” New Jersey native says she won’t be bringing any extra drama to the series… darn.

"I'm different because I'm just a personable person,” Cortese told MTV. “I don't take things to heart. People can make fun of me 'til the day I die and I will just take it in and be like, 'Yeah, you know what? Whatever.' I just don't care what people think and I think that's what everybody in the house loves about me.”

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Mia Farrow testifies on 'blood diamonds'

Bright and early this morning, "Showbiz Tonight" staffers were already debating Jennifer Aniston's latest new remarks that women don’t need a man to have a baby.

"Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," Aniston said.

She also said that being 41 and single shouldn't stop her from having a baby. "[W]hat is amazing is that we do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents' days when you can't have children because you have waited too long," the actress said. So do you agree with Aniston that women don't need men to have a baby? We're going to debate this hot topic on "Showbiz Tonight" later today!
