“Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were married Saturday evening in an intimate ceremony, their spokesperson tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“We’re delighted to confirm that Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were married this evening in front of family and close friends,” said the spokesperson.

Simpson, 23, wore an ivory lace wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier accessorized with a diamond necklace and earrings by Neil Lane as she and Wentz, 28, exchanged vows in front of 150 guests at her parents’ Los Angeles area home.

Dad Joe Simpson performed the non-denominational ceremony, while sister Jessica served as maid of honor. Wentz’s English bulldog, Hemingway, was the ring-bearer. Guests included Jessica’s boyfriend, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, as well as actor Donald Faison with girlfriend CaCee Cobb.

Simpson told PEOPLE on Friday that she was never the type to dream about her wedding when she was growing up, but changed her tune once she got engaged. “Now that I’m doing it, I definitely have that big dream. It kind of went more fairytale than I thought. I got really into it.” Added Wentz, “She has this amazing imagination and to watch it take place is an awesome thing.”

With the help of wedding planner Mindy Weiss, Simpson got her dream nuptials: The Alice in Wonderland themed reception featured a wedding cake by Sam Godfrey of Perfect Endings with a top hat, tea pot, stop watch and a pot of flowers on top. The elaborate centerpieces of black beauty roses were by Mark’s Garden. Guests were served Rose Veuve Clicquot champagne followed by a sit-down dinner and dancing to a DJ.

Simpson, who is pregnant with the couple’s first child, and Wentz, the bassist for Fall Out Boy, have been linked since the fall of 2006, when they were spotted kissing at a New York nightclub. They announced their engagement last month.

“He’s a cutie,” Simpson told PEOPLE last year. “He has an awesome personality and kind of brings out the best of me and I knew that even before we were dating. There was just like an awesome connection we had.”

After they’d been dating almost a year, Wentz told PEOPLE, “We’re past the honeymoon period. The truth is, it’s crazy to be able to kiss your best friend. It’s just a really awesome thing.”

This is the first marriage for both.”

Wesley Snipes Given Three Years In Prison

Posted in celebrities, Wesley Snipes with tags , on April 24, 2008 by famouspersonality

“A “very sorry” Wesley Snipes, star of the “Blade” movies, was sentenced to three years in prison on Thursday for willfully failing to file U.S. income tax returns for 1999 through 2001.

Snipes was convicted in February on three misdemeanor counts. U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges handed down the maximum sentence and said he felt it was important to create a general deterrent against tax defiance.

“I am very sorry for my mistakes and errors,” Snipes told the judge. “This will never happen again.””

If he thought he could get away with not paying taxes for three years, then he clearly needed more people. Although, the giving him the maximum sentence seems harsh to me. What do you think?

I like it, but I am undecided about the facial expression. It’s either a come hither look or a what the heck am I doing expression.  What do you think?

Glow In The Dark Tour Review

Posted in celebrities, hip hop, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, NERD, Rihanna with tags , , , on April 18, 2008 by famouspersonality

 

“Kanye West lives up to his promise to be the greatest star in the hip-hop universe with his “Glow In The Dark Tour,” which kicked off Wednesday night at the Key. He not only took the concert experience to a new level, he took it to a new planet.

It was a magnificent, thrilling, uplifting, sensory experience, unlike any other pop concert before it. West has rethought the whole idea of live performance, from the staging to the lighting to the overall message. He took the excited, involved, constantly moving young crowd on an out-of-this-world journey, to Planet Kanye and back.

West was the only inhabitant of this lonely planet, the only person on stage during his 90-minute set. A 10-member group of musicians and singers were in a pit well below him, all of them in black to make them even more obscure.

The huge, very tall set was like the uneven surface of another world. West first appeared lying on an elevated plaform, which eventually became like a spaceship, moving up, down and sideways, with smoke and flashing lights. An enormous video screen created the look and feel of space travel and otherworldly landscapes.

Using raps and songs from his entire career, he tells a story of a quest for love, knowledge and recognition. He returns to Planet Earth with the hard-won wisdom that life is a gift and every day a miracle.

He opened with “Good Morning,” the lead cut from his latest CD, “Graduation.” He blended most of his key raps — “Gold Digger,” “Jesus Walks,” “Hey Mama,” “Stronger” and, of course, “Spaceship” and “I’ll Fly Away” — into the narrative, changing some lyrics, including taking the N-word out of “Gold Digger” and adding Seattle name-checks to other raps..

His show was amazingly tight, given the elaborate, seamless, creative nature of it all. It was an absolutely amazing production.

The star-studded show was impressive in its entirety, with three more of the most talented, versatile, pop-oriented, positive acts in hip-hop.

Rihanna was like a hip-hop supermodel, looking sexy and beautiful as she performed with four dancers, two background singers and three musicians. Her huge, Grammy-winning hit “Umbrella” was the high point.

N.E.R.D., featuring gifted singer-songwriter-producer Pharrell Williams, backed by six musicians (including two drummers), started strong. But his voice gave out, due, he said, to inhaling stage smoke.

Lupe Fiasco, along with a DJ, co-rapper Mr. G, and three excellent pop/rock vocalists, kicked it off with a short, powerful, fun set. The sound was body-slamming loud, during his and the other sets. That only helped bring everyone to their feet, and kept them dancing all night.”
