Willow Smith goes green
It isn't easy being green...unless you're Willow Smith, that is. The 11-year-old pop star has gone through her third hair change in a month by dying her locks neon green. Will Smith's young daughter posted a series of photos to her Instagram account showing off her new 'do. In some shots, the Whip My Hair singer poses in a tie-dye T-shirt. In others, she's seen making silly expressions and mugging for the camera. It was less than a week ago that the aspiring pop singer lightened her locks to a platinum blonde. She paired the look with a striped top and some thick-rimmed oversized glasses, captioning the picture 'Nerds Rule'. Earlier in the month she shocked her fans by buzzing her lovely locks right off during a trip to Costa Rica. She revealed the change on her WhoSay page. Though not many 11-year-olds can claim they're the offspring of two celebrities or have the ability to do with their hair as they please, Willow wanted to set the record straight about life in the public eye. She wrote on her Twitter page: "I am regular person.... forget that... "Nobody has a PICTURE PERFECT life... I am still just a child..." Part of this imperfection might be that she has not yet had a top-ten hit in the US, with her last single 21st Century Girl scraping in at 99 in the Billboard charts. She describes herself as an actor and musician in her profile. Her first song Whip My Hair did significantly better, reaching the number 11 spot, and perhaps a guest spot from Nicki Minaj can help her upcoming track perform well. The True Jackson, VP star is also getting ready to appear in a movie adaptation of comic book series Amulet with her brother Jaden.

Onwards and upwards!
There's nothing better than a bit of retail therapy to raise spirits after a difficult week. So it came as little surprise that Lindsay Lohan decided to cheer herself up by hitting the shops after her appearance on Saturday Night Live was panned by critics. The 25-year-old actress was seen alongside her brother Cody and sister Ali at Rag & Bone in New York City. Lindsay stepped out wearing a pair of black leggings, boots and blue and white T-shirt with a grey blazer as she hit the stores. She teamed her outfit with a pair of dark sunglasses and a chic black Prada handbag. Lindsay is no doubt reeling from her appearance on comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live over the weekend, which was panned by critics but proved a ratings hit. Lindsay brought the show to the number one time slot last night, beating out all other shows on the major networks. Additionally, Lindsay's episode is now counted as the second most watched SNL of the season, with NBA legend Charles Barkley taking the top spot for the show's 37th season ratings win. While Lindsay's performance was supposed to be a career comeback, instead it was met with largely scathing headlines. By most accounts, the starlet appeared wooden on stage and she relied too heavily on cue cards. As soon as the show started, Lindsay's rambling performance became one of the hottest topics across the web. "Worst host of the year?" Entertainment Weekly asked in a headline. While Hitfix.com critic Ryan McGee wrote: "She looks scared to death out there." Meantime, The Los Angeles Times said the performance gave the impression that Lindsay's "comeback train is stuck at the station."
Star Trek legend is beamed out of Celebrity Apprentice
With his taste for the finer things, George Takei was seemingly perfect to lead the men in this week's Celebrity Apprentice challenge. But the Star Trek star, otherwise known as Mr Sulu, failed to impress the judges in the window dressing task on Sunday and got the beamed out of the competition by Donald Trump. The 74-year-old appeared to struggle with leadership during the mission at hand, lending to his demise on the reality TV contest. "We will boldly go where no man has gone before," George joked to Trump at the start of the show and seemingly for the men it was. The task could have been considered quite biased with the women clearly having a leg up over the men in the fashion stakes. And in the end it was in fact the ladies who triumphed over the men, raising $20,000 for Dayana Mendoza's charity, The Latino Commission on AIDS. The former Miss Universe was at the helm of the women, despite Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice clearly miffed about not being voted team leader after reminding them of her comprehensive fashion background. The challenge was to design two living window displays at a Lord & Taylor's store showcasing the Ivanka Trump Clothing Collection. The task was judged by Trump's daughter herself, with the aid of her brothers Eric and Donald Jr.
