Lindsay wants the media to leave her and Sam alone.  Pictures like this will not help.

Katy Perry:  Don’t believe reports that she’s dating Josh Groban.  The duo (clearly opposites!) are not together, says his rep.

Lindsay Lohan: Upset that people keep speculating on her relationship with Samantha Ronson.  Can’t say we blame her, but she has to understand by now that all this comes with being a “famous” person.

Facebook: Finally responding to “thousands” of messages from outraged users.

Sizzle: Posting may be sporadic and shortened in the coming days due to personal circumstances.  We appreciate your understanding.

SIZZLED OUT: Roseanne

STILL SIZZLING: A theatrical version of this reality show will debut at various theme parks this summer.  Not sure where it belongs, though.  Epcot? Animal Kingdom? MGM?  Universial Studios?  It could fit in so many places!

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

American Idol: It’s hard out there for an Idol, especially if you’re David Cook.  The reigning champ took to his MySpace blog to call out aggressive fans.  Warns Cook: “preventative measures” may be taken if their behavior doesn’t stop.

DWTS: We always wondered what the celeb contestants got for their participation.  We hoped and assumed it was a donation to their favorite charity but apparently that’s not the case.  Instead they get paid upwards of $200,000!

Justin Timberlake: Wonder how Jessica Biel feels about JT’s sexy appearance in Ciara’s new music video.  You can say it’s acting and just business, but we know we wouldn’t be okay with this!

David Letterman: The Late Show host is just the latest entertainer to get married recently.  Dave announced last night that he wed his longtime girlfriend and babymama. Glad to hear there’ll be one more happy families around!

Lance Armstrong: In the midst of a cycling comeback, Armstrong has broken his collarbone.  Let’s wish the cyclist and father-to-be (again) a speedy recovery.

Facebook: Still getting slammed for the recent redesign but has said nothing to appease users.  This can’t end well, can it?

Jossip: Redesigned again!  At least they’ve re-posted a slew of Ashton Kutcher’s TwitPics.

SIZZLED OUT: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

STILL SIZZLING: This actress-comedian is working to recapture the magic of the 90s as she develops another sitcom.

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody (1981-2009)

Jade Goody: The British reality TV star passed away yesterday after battling cancer for less than a year.  Too sad for words.

Oprah: The big O rarely shares the cover of her magazine, but might be starting a new trend.  After featuring Michelle Obama on the April cover, Oprah will share another one with Ellen DeGeneres.

Bruce Willis: Got married this weekend–with ex-wife Demi Moore and her (hotter and younger) hubby Ashton Kutcher in attendance!  Love that some split families do actually get along!

TV Guide: Back with its own Web site now that they’re no longer affiliated with the still-running TVGuide.com.  This will be quite confusing!

Whoopi Goldberg: Speaking of TV Guide the magazine, Goldberg lashed out at them on an episode of The View last week for writing an unflattering piece on her style of dress.  Love when Whoopi gets feisty!

SIZZLED OUT: Dane Cook

STILL SIZZLING: This couple, 22 years apart in age, got engaged recently after more than 7 years of dating.

The latest example of Pixar genius

The latest example of Pixar genius

Chris Brown: The New York Times has a really interesting piece exploring why teens might be siding with him in the Rihanna case.  The court of law may decide his legal fate, but these kids get to decide whether to make or break his career.

Jennifer Lopez: Joined (ironically?) by a bunch of young C-list stars in a West Side Story photo spread in Vanity Fair.

Obama: Made some good quips with Jay Leno last night, but do people want a president that’s funny and taking time out for late-night appearances?  Or does that make him seem more “real”?

Family Guy: Here’s a nomination for weirdest cross-over in TV history.  Stewie will interact with David Boreanaz’s character on an upcoming episode of Bones.

VH1: Bringing back one of their old staples, Behind the Music.  Which is interesting considering they don’t seem to do much with music these days.  So far only Lil’ Wayne and Scott Weiland have been announced as the biography series’ subjects.

Pixar: The creators of Wall-E will have the honor of opening the prestegious Cannes Film Festival with their newest film, Up.  With their track record, it’s bound to be a hit.

Twitter: The staff at Good Morning America is so happy about their Twitter use that they released a statement saying how they more followers than competing news programs.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s what’s most important.

SIZZLED OUT: Kanye West

STILL SIZZLING: This comedian isn’t laughing now that he watched his own brother be indicted for stealing his money.

How can you resist this?!

How can you resist this?!

Natasha Richardson: Unfortunately, official word has come.  The 45-year-old actress passed away late yesterday.  Take a moment to check out some of her best film roles.

LeAnn Rimes: If you ask US Weekly, the married Rimes is having an affair with her Lifetime miniseries married co-star, Eddie Cibrian.  Cibrian is flat-out denying it while Rimes wrote a crpytic message to fans on her official site.

Obama: Will people start to like him less if he keeps interrupting your TV programming?  Because apparently that’s the plan…

Bush: It was inevitable.  He’s writing a memoir.  It might be called “Decision Points.”  Can’t wait to see what the  REAL title will be!

Freddie Prinze Jr.: Here’s hoping the success of the superhero trend can transfer to the small screen.  Prinze signed on to play one in a new ABC show called “No Heroics.”  We’ve missed his pretty face!

SIZZLED OUT: Heath Ledger

STILL SIZZLING: This rapper/R & B star, known as well as for his ego as for his music, was charged with 3 misdemeanors yesterday following an incident with the paparazzi.

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

Rihanna: One of the columnists at Entertainment Weekly wrote a great column on how people are mistaken for thinking Rihanna is a role model.  Memo to the world: being a pop singer doesn’t make you qualified to set examples for kids!

American Idol: Rumor has it that the producers already “picked” the final four.  The show’s response?  “No comment.”  Wouldn’t be the first time they’ve been accused of rigging the voting.  Definitely won’t be the last.

DWTS: There’s a ton of so-called professional post-show bloggers out there, but for an inside source, check out judge Bruno Tonioli’s over at The Daily Beast.

Madonna: Working on a greatest hits album to be released in the fall.  Will likely include new songs as well.  Does this woman ever stop?!

Natasha Richardson: With so many conflicting stories out there, we’re not going to link to anything.  Some say she’s brain dead.  Others say she was talking fine after the accident.  Let’s stop speculating and just wait for an official comment!

Facebook: As hardcore Twitter users (follow us at @sizzlemaker!), we simultaneously annoyed and pleased by Facebook’s recent changes.  Most people, it seems, are just upset because they can be.  No one likes change, do they?

SIZZLED OUT: SciFi (becoming SyFy)

STILL SIZZLING: This late actor, best known for his filmwork, directed two soon-to-be-released music videos before his unexpected death.
