What You Missed: This Week in Pop

As we said goodbye to fall this weekend, we also said goodbye to America’s royal couple. After we at Sarah Lawrence got our power back and plugged in our laptops to once again discover the world of the internet, we were greeted with the tragic news of newlywed Kim Kardashian’s filing for divorce from her husband of less than three months, Kris Humphries. The news came after weeks of rumors of the couple’s unhappiness and Kris’ alleged cheating. The divorce is rumored to have come down to the two’s future plans. Kim, of course, doesn’t want to settle down in Kris’ hometown in Minnesota (the argument was played out on the E! special about their wedding). If you would like to revisit the $10 million wedding that was, you can read my recaps of the wedding spectacular here and here.

Surprise! Courtney Stodden is gross even on Halloween.

FX has renewed its horror series American Horror Story for a second season.

Scarlett Johansson’s recently released nudie pics were for her then husband—Ryan Reynolds. Why didn’t they take them together?!

Hillary Duff is working on a new album! (Don’t act as if you’re not excited.)

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 30 days in jail on Wednesday and she got a few extra days out in the real world so she could finish her Playboy photo shoot, although she doesn’t even need the extra time since she will probably be released from jail within minutes. I should remember that if I ever get arrested, I need to be in California and call a porn company ASAP.

This one is for all of you theater thirds: Glee star and original cast member of Spring Awakening on Broadway, Jonathan Groff, had some nude stills from a movie unearthed by Perez Hilton. You guys may want to ask your roommate to leave the room.

Vinny Guadagnino of Jersey Shore visited a sociology class at Columbia University to discuss “deviance” on Wednesday. A student (rudely) heckled him, but Vinny wasn’t upset because he knows he’s richer than any Ivy League student ever will be.

The 20-year-old girl who is claiming that Justin Bieber knocked her up may now become known as the girl who statutorily raped Justin Bieber. She didn’t think this fame stunt through very well.
