Looks good to us!

Looks good to us!

Jessica Simpson: Just the latest star to get slammed online for gaining weight.  Like it’s a crime to be a size 8!  Surprisingly, sister Ashlee made a great case on her blog as to why we should just leave Jessica–and all women–alone.

Slumdog Millionaire: The families of the child actors that played Latika and Salim are alleging they’ve been exploited by the film’s execs and production company.  Could this be the end of Slumdog’s positive press run?

The Reader: Will get to submit 4 producer names in the Oscars Best Picture category instead of the usual 3, since two of those producers (sadly) died partway through production.  Sounds fair, no?

Lisa Kudrow: Producing a new reality show where celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Susan Sarandon research their families.  Sounds fascinating, just like most reality shows.

Facebook: Seems like every day there’s a hoard of new fan pages.  Most popular page: Barack Obama.  Wonder how long til that ends?

Facebook Pt. 2: A new study suggests how many friends you have in life are related to your genes.  And now Gawker is trying to use to that to explain Facebook and a user’s popularity.  Something got lost in translation, no?

Joaquin Phoenix: Entertainment Weekly says they have sources that prove Phoenix’s foray into rapping is a “hoax.”  Yawn.

PETA: Their ad for the Superbowl was rejected but it seems they won out in the end (and it was all purposefully done) to attract people to view it–and PETA’s message–online.  The ad is pretty scandalous, we must admit.

Tyra Banks: Getting the “exellence in media” award from GLAAD.  Never thought the two had much in common but guess we’re wrong.

Twitter: If you’re on it, you should follow NUTwitProject and help some students try to save the world.  Okay, not really.  But you should still follow them and answer their questions!

SIZZLED OUT: Ugly Betty

STILL SIZZLING: Looks like someone new does in fact own them!  This classic 90s feminist movie is headed to Broadway.
