Is he the next American Idol?

Is he the next American Idol?

American Idol: He hasn’t even won–yet–and already Adam Lambert has his first solo magazine cover story.  Entertainment Weekly gave him the honor, apparently in part because of his ambiguous sexuality.

American Idol Pt. 2: Did you know this is the first time the final 3 contestants were all male?  We had no idea!

Paula Abdul: This is probably the first time we’ve ever seen Ladies Home Journal accused of fabrication but the Idol judge is doing it and doing it strongly.  Just days after the magazine released a cover story where Abdul admits to a past drug addiction, the singer is claiming she never said–or had–any such thing.  Well, someone’s lying…

Susan Boyle: You know you’ve really made it big when you appear on Oprah.  And Boyle will do just that…sort of.  She’ll appear via Oprah’s favorite new thing, Skype.

Prison Break: With only a week left til the series finale, Fox’s latest promo product left critics stumped: a bar of soap.  But The Advocate and GLAAD think they’ve figured out the insinuation–prison rape–and they’re not happy about it.

ABC: Debuted its new “music lounge” yesterday, a radio-like offering with songs that are heard on shows like Grey’s Anatomy. Sounds like a smaller version of iTunes to us.

SIZZLED OUT: A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez by Serena Roberts

STILL SIZZLING: This R & B singer is just the latest celebrity to have nude photos hit the web–but while she calls the act of stealing private things “evil,” she says she’s not bothered by the exposure.

Asking for trouble!

Asking for trouble!

Chris Brown: Some radio stations are refusing to play his (arguably) hit songs, part of the backlash for his alleged assault on (as far as we’re concerned) alleged victim, Rihanna.  Is it fair for the stations do this?  We think not.  Innocent until proven guilty!  Everyone’s just running on gossip right now.

Jennifer Aniston: In honor of her 40th birthday (which was yesterday), PEOPLE put together an on-line gallery of their magazine covers that featured her.  Most interesting: all the ones that feature her and Brad!

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: The Daily Beast does its own tribute with a look at all the love lessons poor Jen should’ve learned from her movies!

A-Rod: In an article on how to save his reputation, The Daily Beast suggests staying away from Madonna.  We probably could’ve told him that!

Bruce Springsteen: Took to his blog to write a very lengthy post about his Superbowl experiences, including his now infamous crotch slam.  Not that we needed to be reminded of it.

ACMs: Nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards were revealed yesterday, with Carrie Underwood as the only female up for entertainer of the year.  Really, no other woman was worthy of consideration?!

Pushing Daisies: If you miss the underappreciated and prematurely canceled show, you can now catch it on TheWB.com!

Sirius XM: Not even a year since the satellite radio companies merged, and the conglomerate is already facing trouble.  The New York Times reports that the company will likely file for bankruptcy, and might lose big-name stars like Howard Stern and Martha Stewart.

Ticketmaster: Planning a merger of its own, with LiveNation.  But for it to actually happen, the companies have to prove they’re not breaking any anti-trust laws.

Digital T V: If you thought you caught a break when Congress approved a delay in the switch from analog signals, you may have been mistaken.  Almost 500 stations are still planning to make the change prior to the extended deadline.  Good luck everyone!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: This singer-actress recently got back together with her musician boyfriend–and now they’re engaged!  Guess she has a crush on him still!

First comes RENT, then comes marriage.  And now, some Practice!

First comes RENT, then comes marriage. And now, some Practice!

Chris Brown: And the plot thickens.  While he hasn’t been charged with battery (just criminal threats) and no official reps or agencies have confirmed the woman involved was in fact Rihanna, apparently their’s hasn’t been a happy relationship for quite some time.

Kate Hudson: Back with Owen Wilson once again.  Perhaps third time’s a charm?

Idina Menzel: Though we usually don’t like it when couples work together, we’re a sucker for this pair.  Menzel will guest-star on an episode of hubby Taye Diggs’ Private Practice.

Grammys: Increased its ratings by about 10 percent.  Pretty impressive since award shows have generally been on the decline.  Guess people liked all those performances!

American Idol: Paula has officially gone on the record saying she thinks this year’s winner will be a guy again. How can she say that? (Then again, how can she say a lot of things she says…)  It’s way too early to make a statement like that.  Anything can happen!

DWTS: They always come back in the end.  Months after saying she wouldn’t appear on the show again, Julianne Hough will be back this season as a dancing pro.  Her partner: real-life boyfriend Chris Wicks.  Great foreplay, we suppose, but the tension and stress certainly can’t be good for the relationship.

SIZZLE: Did you notice our new header?  We loves it! All the credit goes to Maddie at Better in Pink.

SIZZLED OUT: Alex Rodriguez

STILL SIZZLING: This guy, probably best known right now as the much-younger husband to music’s one-time ultimate diva, will be the new host of America’s Got Talent, now that Jerry Springer has stepped down.

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

If Madonna's not dating him, we will!

A-Rod: Just “friends” with Madonna, he says. “That’s it.” Guess we have to believe him.

O.J. Simpson: Sentenced to at least 15 years in jail for armed robbery. Long overdue, some will surely say.

Johnny Depp: Says being a celebrity is “mortifying.” We have no sympathy.

Oprah: The most powerful woman in entertainment, says The Hollywood Reporter. We’ll get on board with that.

Priviledged: Guess sweeps stunts aren’t over at The CW. They just scheduled Pete Wentz to guest star. Is there anything that guy doesn’t do?

Gossip Girl: Spin-off buzz is building again. We’ll believe when we see it.

Gossip Girl Pt. 2: Legit Facebook profiles of the cast?

Pepsi: Receiving major flack for suicide-themed ads in Germany. We’d like to meet the person that thought they would be a good idea.

Trailers: We’re not the only ones who like them more than movies themselves!

Rush & Malloy: One of the most famous gossip columns is going from daily to weekly. Another sign of the times?

Mollywood: The gossip blog is shutting down. Jossip will try to fill the void.

MySpace: When one door closes, another opens. Launching its own gossip site, DailyFill though their label won’t be anywhere on it. Beneficial?

Gawker: Has a pretty fair response to EW’s 25 Smarted People in TV list.

Newsday: Another job opportunity gone. Our hometown paper is laying off 100 staffers. Happy Friday!

Media Ink: Filled with more bad news.

Nielsen: Think they suck? Here’s your chance to tell them. Please don’t waste it!

Swinging the bat at a teammate

Swinging the bat at a teammate

Election: What better way to get kids involved than to write a song to the tune of T.I.’s Whatever You Like? Brilliant.

DWTS: Finally!  Adios, Cloris!

Rebecca Budig: Why make a much-hyped return to All My Children only to leave again one year later?  The actress attributes her departure to her busy life with husband (and former Bachelor hunk) Bob Guiney.  We hope ABC feels stupid now for all its “the real Greenlee returns” promotion.  So now we’ll be back with a “fake one”?

Derek Jeter: Gave a subtle diss to teammate and former BFF A-Rod when he told a reporter “Don’t start with me about Kabbalah. I went to Catholic school.” Is a locker room brawl in the future?

Rosie O’Donnell: Reacted to the Jennifer Hudson tragedy by putting some startling statistics up on her blog.  Turns out, it’s ridiculously common to be murdered by an “intimate partner.”  Such a tragic, scary world we live in.

Russell Brand: Never one to stay out of trouble, the British (actor? host? comic? WHAT IS HE?!) resigned from the BBC after harassing another actor through voicemail.  This is not the first time Brand’s left his place of employment in a huff.  Right after 9/11, he showed up for work at MTV dressed as Osama Bin Laden.  Classy.

Not safe for USA Today

Bristol Palin and the Babydaddy: Not safe for USA Today

PopCardz: Want to keep Ashley Tisdale in your pocket?  You can with these new trading cards featuring random celebs with even more random facts about them.  The new pogs?

Stacy Peterson: Today marks the one year “anniversary” of her disappearance.  We bet it feels like forever to her family.  So sad.

Guitar Hero: What’s funnier: Top athletes like A-Rod and Michael Phelps in boxers and pink shorts?  Or top athletes like A-Rod and Michael Phelps rocking out Risky Business style?  How about both?

Prison Break: They’ve mastered breaking out but not securing their stuff!  A couple of the actors’ trailers were robbed last week, costing them thousands of dollars.

Gossip Girl: We didn’t see last night’s ep yet but some people are actually questioning whether there are romantic plans in the works for Serena and Blair–with each other!  Thankfully, you can expect nothing of the sort.

Ex-List: Serves us right for never getting around to watching the show.  Despite its intriguing plot, it’s been sacked.

Reuters: The second media company this month to have a “white powder” scare.  Again, it was a false alarm but better safe than sorry.

USA Today: Decided at the last minute not to publish an ad promoting teen pregnancy awareness.  Sponsored by the Candies Foundation, the PSA included pics of Jamie-Lynn Spears and Bristol Palin.  Most interesting: the New York Times did publish it.  USA Today’s mistake?  Or NYT’s?

SIZZLED OUT: Hayden Panettiere

STILL SIZZLING: Which up-and-coming actor might be kicked out of his zip code if he keeps making gay jokes?  At least he’s taken to his own blog to apologize.
