Celine Dion’s naked rage

Singer doesn't go topless, hubby doesn't skinny dip; Britney: "My butt feels fat." Plus: James Brolin "too much sex" rumor debunked!

Topics: Celebrity, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears,

Their clothes must go on?

Celine Dion and her husband Rene Angelil are in a naked rage over a report in a Quebec magazine alleging that they’re big into doffing their duds in the great outdoors.

The couple insists that a recent story in Allo-Vedette magazine claiming that they shelled out $5,000 to rent out the swimming pool of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas so she could sunbathe topless and he could skinny-dip unmolested is “absolutely false.” They also dispute the magazine’s report that they’re fond of sunbathing nude at their Florida home.

In fact, the Canadian Press Association reports, the couple has filed a defamation suit in Quebec Superior Court seeking damages and a retraction from the magazine as well as its parent company. The article, they say, did serious damage to their reputation and public image.

And I suppose those rumors that their son was born naked are scurrilous, too?

Britney’s booty call

“When I was younger, I was never really insecure at all. Now I sometimes get insecure because people expect celebrities to look a certain way. And there are mornings I wake up and my butt feels fat.”

Britney Spears, 19, on the pitfalls of aging, in the Scottish Daily Record.

O yeah?

O me, O my. Oprah Winfrey may be headed back to court, this time to face off with a German publisher of erotica.

Ronald Brockmeyer says the talk-show host has done him wrong. Brockmeyer, who publishes an O magazine that features many more scantily clad women than Oprah’s O magazine does, has filed a breach of copyright suit against Winfrey as well as the magazine’s publishers, Hearst Corp. and Harpo Print LLC.

“I know that lawsuits are a burden on your life but I had no choice,” Brockmeyer said in an Oprah-directed statement printed by Reuters. “O is my trademark. I built it up and protected it for years. The defendants knew about my rights but went ahead anyway and they refused to stop when I asked them to.”

And O, did he ask.

How that fatter half lives

“It was so sad; it was so disturbing. No one would make eye contact with me because I was obese … I felt humiliated because people were really dismissive.”

Gwyneth Paltrow on her maiden outing in the fat suit she wears in “Shallow Hal,” in W magazine.

Juicy bits

When is an engagement party not an engagement party? When it’s Jennifer Lopez and Cris Judd’s apparently. Despite the fact that the Butted One is waltzing around with a diamond ring on the telltale finger and that the duo appeared at a star-studded engagement party apparently thrown in their honor in L.A. on Saturday night, J.Lo’s people refuse to confirm that the couple’s nuptials are impending. Who’s taking bets she’ll wear a see-through wedding dress?

People who need people with new hips may be the luckiest people in the world, but the New York Daily News has debunked tabloid reports that the reason James Brolin needed hip-replacement surgery recently was not because he had “too much sex” with wife, Barbra Streisand. The actor’s manager called the nooky talk “an outrageous lie.” Besides, he says, Brolin’s surgery was not on his hip, but on his knee. People who kneed people … ?

Mariah Carey is apparently ready to give of herself again. The recently hospitalized singer spent two hours bonding with 150 campers at the Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah in Fishkill, N.Y., last week. Not only did Carey sign autographs for the disadvantaged kiddies, she also gave them each a portable CD player and her new single, “Loverboy.” Guess that’s one way to goose sales …

That’s Ambassador Angie to you. Angelina Jolie has signed on to become a United Nations goodwill ambassador. Kris Janowski, spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, told the press that Jolie, who recently traveled to Cambodia, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast and Tanzania with the group, is “the kind of person who can get our message across to young people.” If they ask her nicely, she’d probably even be happy to tattoo their message somewhere on her body.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
