KINDRED SPIRITS Travolta, Divine (inset)
• Amanda Bynes, all grown up and looking pretty in black patent-leather high heels at Lucky magazine's swag lounge in Manhattan's Ritz Carlton hotel on Tuesday, dished about singing a duet from Grease with cross-dressing John Travolta. The two costar in Hairspray, a film adaptation (slated for a July 20 release) of the Broadway play, which is adapted from John Waters's 1988 cult classic film. "I was singing 'Grease Lightning' with John Travolta when he was dressed up in a lady getup 'cause he's playing a woman in the movie," Bynes told Radar. "So that was really cool to be singing a favorite song of mine with him." Travolta plays Edna Turnblad, the character originally played by Divine.
• David Boreanaz knows he's a hunk. He was lifting up his top at the Lucky swag lounge on Tuesday, showing off more than his tan. The Bones beau had allegedly just stripped for a Chrysler Motors photo shoot. "No, I didn't!" Boreanaz retorted. "All I did was take my jacket off." Turning his attentions to a nearby PR lady, he joked, "You just wanted to see the guns, the six—I'll show you the six, babe. I got my 12." Just don't give him jeans with flaps on the back. "I don't do sailor-back bottoms!" he told a rep for True Religion jeans, who was handing out freebies to stars. "I'm real particular with that kind of stuff," Boreanaz told Radar. Duly noted, buff Buffy guy.
• What's the best way to watch MTV's new sketch comedy show, Human Giant? According to Giant-member Aziz Ansari, you should be chasing the dragon. "The show is definitely best when you're addicted to heroin. I really just want to encourage anyone who watches our show to do a lot of heroin. You'll really understand the show then," Ansari told Radar at the PAMA upfronts party at The Grand in Manhattan last night. When asked if his presence at the event means his show got picked up, the comedian coyly responded, "Uh, I don't know if I can say anything." But who parties and celebrates not getting picked up?
