Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are angry at critics for ruining "The Lone Ranger". The film's two stars have blamed bad reviews for the movie's poor performance, implying that critics were bashing the film long before they even saw it. "I think the reviews were written seven to eight months before we released the film," Depp said. "I think the reviews were written when they heard Gore (Verbinski, director) and Jerry (Bruckheimer, producer) and me were going to do 'The Lone Ranger'. They had expectations that it must be a blockbuster. I didn't have any expectations of that. I never do." Hammer's also upset, saying critics were out to get it before they even finished filming.

Lindsay Lohan made her guest-host appearance on Chelsea Handler's talk show Monday night. The star, fresh out of rehab, filled in for Handler and poked fun at current events, including Kanye West's baby, Justin Bieber's peeing in a mop bucket incident, the royal baby and political punchline Anthony Weiner. She also cracked a few jokes at her own expense, saying she enjoyed her court-ordered Malibu vacation. (story)

A week after sheer devastation, Desiree Hartsock accepted the marriage proposal from eligible bachelor number two, Chris Siegfried, during Monday night's finale of "The Bachelorette". Last week she was turned down by Brooks Forester, which broke her heart because he's the guy she was ready to be with forever. Or at least, forever in ABC dating show terms. This time around she played the heartbreaker, destroying Drew Kenney's hopes of living happily for a year-or-two after with her and choosing Siegfried. And despite last week's letdown, she still said 'yes'. (story)

Miley Cyrus has revealed the title of her upcoming album, and it's er, pretty weak.

She also took a page from Axl Rose's book and promised that her fourth studio album will be out "sometime this year." (story)

Katy Perry has released two new teasers for her new single "Roar", which hits the airwaves on August 12. The singer has reinvented herself for her upcoming third studio album, "Prism", and she's putting her old pop tarty persona to rest. The two new teasers feature no music, but show that Katy's got something big planned. (story)

Jack Osbourne's wife Lisa Stelly announced that the couple is expecting their second child later this year. Stelly's currently in her second trimester, and she broke the news on her Twitter page Tuesday. (story)

Usher's five-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned on Tuesday after attempting to free one of his toys from the drain of the family's pool but got his hand stuck instead. He was underwater for some time, unable to be freed, and he required CPR once he was saved by two men who were working nearby. He was rushed to the hospital and is expected to recover. (story)

Usher's ex wife, Tameka Foster, is now seeking custody of the two kids they share together because of the incident. (story)

Lady Gaga's new single has already leaked online. The song, which is reportedly titled either "Burqa" or "Aura", hit the internet early but is believed to only be a demo version of one of the songs on her upcoming "ARTPOP" album. (story)

Rihanna celebrated the annual Crop Over festival in her native Barbados over the weekend. On Monday, the last day of the festival, she almost wore a tiny jeweled bikini and danced in the streets. (see pics)
