ScarJo goes Goth
She is known for her natural-looking blonde tresses and classic sense of style.
But Scarlett Johansson has been totally transformed for the cover of the 40th anniversary edition of W magazine. Just in time for Halloween, the 27-year-old Lost In Translation star rocks a dark 90s Gothic look, all while displaying her enviable curves in the process.
Scarlett's striking cover sees the star with two-toned black and white Cruella de Vil-style hair and a nose ring in her nose. The actress's bad girl look is intensified with a heavy application of wing-tipped eyeliner and lashings of red lipstick on her full pout.
With several diamond rings adorning her fingers, she pulls up her cleavage-baring Dolce & Gabanna silk lace dress, worn over a matching bodysuit. Sitting in a dark bar, a tumbler of whiskey on the rocks sits in front of her as she stares intensely into the camera lens of famed photographer Steven Klein, who took the snap.

Not such a Happy Birthday?
They stepped out for lunch earlier in the day to celebrate his 35th birthday.
And it seems that Katy Perry has also treated her boyfriend John Mayer to a celebratory dinner. However, instead of being happy about all the festivities surrounding the rocker's milestone day, the couple hardly seemed in good spirits during their evening outing in New York on Tuesday night. In fact, the 27-year-old pop princess and the blues rock musician could barely raise a smile as they made their way out on the town.
Despite their their stony faces, the on and off again duo dressed-to-the-nines for the occasion. The I Kissed A Girl Star looked chic and stunning in a floral oriental print dress worn underneath a classic grey coat. The songstress wore matching yellow accessories, including a handbag and platform sandals. Meanwhile, John gave an interesting twist on a tuxedo by wearing a navy bow tie and white shirt underneath a denim jacket and teamed the combination with baggy trousers. The couple walked side-by-side to their awaiting car which whisked them off to their swanky restaurant.

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong could be in rehab until next year
Punk rock singer Billie Joe Armstrong could be in rehab until 2013. The Green Day frontman went into treatment for substance abuse problems in September after he smashed a guitar and swore multiple times on stage in Las Vegas. Now his record label boss Rob Cavallo has confirmed he may need to be in for some time. He told Rolling Stone magazine: "He's under medical supervision for a while to get him clean. His doctors are still evaluating. All I can say is I don't know if we'll see him before or after Christmas. It's basically undetermined when he will be back". Billie Joe was said to be considered a loose cannon for some time prior to his rehab entry, with friends saying it was about time he got serious help for his problems. A source said: "Billie Joe has been a loose cannon for a long time. It's gone long past time when he should be getting some serious help." The outburst prior to his checking in at rehab began when a teleprompter at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas urged him to finish performing in one minute.
Last week, Green Day bassist Mike Dirnt told BBC Radio 1 host Zane Lowe that the pressure to promote their three new albums ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! had put a heavy burden on the band. "With hindsight 20/20, it was a tremendous undertaking," Dirnt said. "Although we were having fun, we didn't take our nose out of the book for a long time.I think it catches up with you a little bit. We definitely just jumped off a moving train." The bassist also said that Armstrong's Vegas incident had not come as a complete surprise after he band were also forced to cancel a show in Bologna in September after Armstrong was hospitalized hours before they were due to take the stage.
