Another Clooney wedding!

When you're George Clooney, you don't have to settle for just one wedding. The 53-year-old Ocean's 11 star, who wed human-rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, at a star-studded wedding Saturday, remarried her Monday at a civil ceremony at the Ca' Farsetti, a 14th-century palazzo that houses Venice's town hall.

Former Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni officiated at both nuptials.

 

Thor, the Gloria Steinem way

Marvel Comics is relaunching Thor Wednesday with a brand new hammer-wielder - a lady! "She's going to be Thor," Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort tells USA Today, "as powerful and strong as the previous god and embodying the same sort of nobility we think of as being Thor." Alas, Hollywood won't follow suit: Chris Hemsworth will keep being Thor in future pics.

 

DUI for Amanda Bynes

Things have been quiet on the Amanda Bynes front. But Sunday the troubled actor was arrested and charged with DUI in the San Fernando Valley, say E! News and TMZ. Police determined she was high on drugs, booked her, and released her on $15,000 bail. Bynes, 28, is still on probation from her last bit of naughtiness. TMZ says she's been acting up again ever since her parents' court-ordered conservatorship ended earlier this month.

 

FKA Twigs calls out racists

FKA Twigs says that, following media reports she's dating Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson, she has been inundated with racist messages. (Born Tahliah Debrett Barnett, Ms. Twigs is half-Jamaican, half-Spanish.) "I am genuinely shocked and disgusted at the amount," she tweets. "Racism is unacceptable in the real world and it's unacceptable online." She followed up by posting a selfie on Instagram that bore the message, "jamaica latina bambina."

 

Dressing as success?

Did it strike anyone else as odd that on Saturday, Beyoncé (whom we love) was in Central Park to attend and play at the Global Citizen Festival, which aims to end extreme poverty by 2030 - dressed to her lovely teeth in Dolce & Gabbana??? Yeah, you have to represent, but . . . #tonedeafness
