Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood Issue has always been on the cutting edge of what’s next or what’s hot in Tinsel Town. The 2010 edition, boldly titled “A New Decade, A New Hollywood,” hits newsstands Feb. 9. But there is already an uproar brewing about the issue’s cover. Outlets such as USA Today , E!

With bus and train fares increasing every two years, taxi’s getting more and more expensive by the minute, and cars not being a option at all, a electric scooter sounds like a interesting option right now. Here’s the full story, what do you think:
There’s nothing like a petty squabble between celebrities to send folks searching. Ideally, the tiff involves vapid starlets arguing over who started the purse-dog trend, but Clint Eastwood telling Spike Lee to “shut his face” makes for a perfectly acceptable substitute. Continue reading
