Same sex marriage advocacy and Kim K's divorce

As the latest star to hop out of a marriage fast enough to cause whiplash (or at least to make some lose their bets), Kim K. is also now the poster child for gay marriage.

A number of famous names tweeted after Kardashian filed for divorce Monday that the value of marriage is being lessened not by same-sex unions, but by heterosexuals.

George Takei tweeted (and please catch the sarcasm), "Kim Kardashian files for divorce after 72 days. Another example of how same-sex marriage is destroying the sanctity of the very institution." Kathy Griffin followed suit, saying, "Ugh! gay couples like Kim K & Kris H ruining the sanctity of marriage is the problem w the radical homosexual agend- oh wait..."

Marilyn Manson's karaoke fave is Justin Timberlake?

Apparently goth rocker Marilyn Manson is a big Justin Timberlake fan. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Marilyn belted classic JT tune “Cry Me a River” at karaoke in Las Vegas.

Not only does an onlooker tell the paper that Manson chose a Timberlake ballad, the source also claims he sang it six times!

“He was insisting on Timberlake music, so somebody had to download it on their iPod,” another source at bar Born and Raised told Page Six.

Around 4 a.m. on Saturday night, Manson and his crew reportedly left a Halloween party at The Bank nightclub and hit up Born and Raised, where Marilyn is said to have got on the mic. Page Six says that after warming up with The Doors’ “Texas Radio,” Manson started in with the repeated renditions of Timberlake.

Manson wasn't available to comment on the reports, but staff at the bar told Page Six that Manson was in attendance.

Fallon spoofs Bieber: '(It's not my) Baby'

Justin Bieber has tweeted that he's trying to "focus on the positive" instead of the rumors and gossip, which may or may not be in reference to that paternity lawsuit he's been hit with.

(If you're just joining us, a 20-year-old has reportedly claimed she had sexual relations with Bieber last October in a bathroom backstage at one of his L.A. concerts, a tryst that she alleges resulted in a 3-month-old baby boy. Bieber has called the allegations not only false, but malicious.)

Enter Jimmy Fallon, who was more than happy to take up the 17-year-old singer's cause on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

Franco conducting seance to contact Tennessee Williams

Halloween’s over, but James Franco still has a spooky trick planned. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Franco has announced that he's going to conduct a seance to contact deceased playwright Tennessee Williams.

Considering Franco’s usual hijinks, a seance isn’t too surprising. The actor says his beyond-the-grave encounter will happen on November 13 during Performa, the biannual NYC performance art festival.

The “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” star, along with video artist Laurel Nakadate, will use a Ouija board to connect with Williams in part one of “Three Artists in Search of Tennessee,” a three-part commissioned piece. It's art!

What Owen Wilson can't wait to do with his son

When kids meet the actors behind their favorite animated characters, things can understandably get a little confusing.

Such was the case for "Cars 2" actor Owen Wilson, who voices Lightning McQueen in the Disney/Pixar franchise, when he was out at a recent dinner.

"At dinner, a family [brought] over their kid who was Lightning McQueen for Halloween, and the parents were trying to say, ‘This is Lightning McQueen,’ and the kid just had no comprehension of what they were talking about," Wilson, 42, recalls.
