• B-list starlet-slayer Brody Jenner was spotted at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City this weekend, where he sauntered up with his bippy band of bros to host an event at the nightclub Murmur. In a camouflage-print T-shirt, the Prince of Malibu went for an uninspired leap over the red velvet rope to stand for some pics but misjudged the foot-and-a-half height and took a graceless stumble. (Somewhere, gold medal decathlete and dad Bruce Jenner is recoiling in horror at the metaphor for both his boy’s pathetic athletic prowess and lackluster career.) When Brody finally made his way inside, he pulled a modified McConaughey and sat in with house percussionist Andy Conga on the bongos for a jam-along to Nelly Furtado’s “Nothing at All.” By the next morning, rumors were swirling of the ladyless Jenner resorting to desperate—and ultimately fruitless—late-night measures to procure booty. Next time, maybe he’ll eat his Wheaties.
• Want to know if your favorite and/or most-hated celebrity is emo? The answer may be in Everybody Hurts: An Essential Guide to Emo Culture. Penned by two writers for Alternative Press, the book delivers the verdict on such borderline figures as John Mayer (“floats in a purgatory of emo-ness”), Kelly Clarkson (“one of us” solely on the strength of “Since U Been Gone”), Jared Leto (emo in My So Called Life but not in Lindsay Lohan) and Billy Corgan (would be emo if he weren’t bald and a sports fan).
• Don’t be surprised if the New York Post‘s razor-thin circulation lead over the rival Daily News is short-lived. Many operators of newsstands in the midtown area (ie, within a five-block radius of Radar HQ) say they’ve been selling fewer copies of the Post since the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid increased its price from 25 cents to 50 cents last week. The News is capitalizing on Post readers’ sticker shock with a 25-cent price promotion of its own, which began last week and is tentatively slated to run through Friday. The strategy seems to be working, says the proprietor of a Third Avenue kiosk: “A lot of people have switched from Post to Daily News.”
