Rachel Bilson's not a fan of Coppola's 'Bling Ring'

Critics have called Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" "enjoyable" if not "empty," but Rachel Bilson is just going with "weird."

The "Hart of Dixie" actress was one of the targets of the real-life "Bling Ring," a group of five teenagers who burglarized celebrity homes in 2008 and 2009.

Coppola's film, which stars former "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson, presents a fictionalized account of the teens' crime spree, an exercise in creativity that Bilson doesn't understand.

Miley Cyrus' twerking skills have gone from Internet infamy to being immortalized on Jay-Z's latest album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

In the song "Somewhereinamerica," Jay rhymes, "Feds still lurking/They see I'm still putting work in/Cause somewhere in America/Miley Cyrus is twerkin.'" The industry titan is also heard seemingly encouraging Miley's dance moves with the repeated phrase, "twerk Miley, Miley twerk."

Mick Jagger's hair sells for $6,000

An envelope of Mick Jagger's "washed and trimmed" hair was snapped up for a sizeable sum at a recent auction.

An anonymous (and apparently very wealthy) buyer plunked down £4,000 - or about $6,000 - for a clump of the rocker's locks. According to the BBC, that's twice as much as the strands were expected to bring in at Wednesday's event.
