EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, the Daily Edge rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom. Here’s The Dredge.

#ALONE TIME: Clueless star Alicia Silverstone has given her, er, stamp of approval to a brand of sex toys. She writes on their website “Sometimes it’s nice to have a little extra… something… when you’re getting it on.” The Leaf line of lady-buzzers is eco-friendly, and Alicia likes that they look “natural and feminine” and “not scary”. (Buzzfeed)

We wholeheartedly endorse the only user-submitted comment on the site: “Oh.”

#LITTLE BASTARDS: Does your dislike of One Direction spring mainly from insecurity at their extreme youth and enormous success? Join the club Prepare for it to grow – the squeezable-faced fivesome have catapulted themselves into Heat magazine’s under-30 rich list, earning an estimated £26million. Meaning it is now officially pointless to criticise them, because they could buy and sell you. In fact, they probably already have. (Heat)

Yes, they look like something you find urinating in an alleyway on Junior Cert results night. But they are in fact multi-millionaires. (PA Wire)

#CHARMER: Fresh from the news that he’s ordering a love seat for his Dublin gig (hello sofa-loving ladies!), face-punching pop star Chris Brown has presented more evidence that he’s a charmer. An openly gay fan says he was called a “faggot” by Brown after asking for an autograph – and when he angrily accused Brown of being a “wife-beater”, the star allegedly said “I beat pussy”. Just a great, great guy. (Radar)

#WHAT’S IN A NAME: Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been denied in an attempt to trademark the (ridiculous) name of their child, Blue Ivy. It turns out there’s already a wedding planner in Boston using the name. (The Sun)
