This your American Idol.  You okay with that?

This your American Idol. You okay with that?

American Idol: Has there been a bigger upset in Idol history?  We think not.  And we totally blame all the pre-finale hoopla around Adam  Lambert for his loss.  The hype totally backfired on him!

Kanye West: Used his blog to declare “Justin is the new Mike, Beyonce’s the new Tina Turner [and] GaGa’s Madonna.”  Kind of little soon to be making grand statements like that, no?  Then again, this is Kanye West so…

Pete Wentz: Peeved at Gawker for including him, Ashlee Simpson and son Bronx, in their Stalker column.  The result?  “Hate mail” sent to Gawker on his behalf gives them another opportunity to make fun of him.  Good work, Pete.  But we suppose this tweet was Pete’s way of firing back again.  To be continued?

Natalie Cole: The singer, who suffers from hepatitis C, had a kidney transplant this week.  What would we do without organ donors?

Kelly Rutherford: Apparently hiring private investigators to watch your husband doesn’t just happen in the movies.  If you’re Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford, it’s just one more twist in your divorce drama.

Twitter: E! Online is planning to incorporate tweets into its scroll at the bottom of all programming.  Is it fair to say now that Twitter has gone mainstream?

SIZZLED OUT: Privileged

STILL SIZZLING: The artist who voiced this iconic animal character passed away this week. Guess the Magic Kingdom will be in mourning for a while…

Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

Will her 15 minutes of fame end even with a 'Dancing' win?

American Idol: The season culminates tonight–and tomorrow–with the final face-off between Kris Allen and Adam Lambert.  Is it bad that we don’t have a preference?

DWTS: The season also culminates for this show tonight.  (Coincidence?) But a new article suggests winning ultimately means very little for your career.  Poor Melissa Rycroft.

Fox: Unveiled its fall schedule yesterday with six new shows, including Glee which will actually premiere this week.  None of them interest us but that’s probably for the best.  We can’t handle any more television commitments!

Christina Applegate: It quickly went from a great month to a bad one for Applegate, now that her show Samantha Who? was officially canceled. Bet she’s hoping that PEOPLE cover will lead to a new gig.

Social Media: Gotta love getting instant-reaction from celebs on everything as mundane as daily errands to earthquakes.  Thanks, SM.

Newsweek: Need to pick up the new issue to check out its massive redesign.  Curious to know all your thoughts, too!

SIZZLED OUT: 90210

STILL SIZZLING: Someone bid $13,000 to intern at this on-line publication, one that’s mostly known for letting nearly anyone with an opinion do a blog post.

Will he get America's vote?

Will he get America's vote?

American Idol: The New York Times wrote the best piece we’ve seen yet exploring the possibility that the show might end up with its first gay Idol–Adam Lambert.  The world can definitely handle that, no?

Phil Spector: In trial number two, the former go-to music producer was convicted of second degree murder.  He and his wacky hair will undoubtedly face jail time when he’s sentenced in May.

Mel Gibson: News that his wife filed for divorce isn’t that surprising.  What is is that they’ve been separated for three years.  Pretty sure they both vacationed with Britney last spring, though.  Maybe we’re wrong?

Zac Efron: Probably doesn’t realize it yet but he put his foot in his mouth twice in one interview with GQ.  First Efron slammed celebs who drink and hook up publicly, then he vowed not to get married til 30, “if ever.”  And how does Vanessa feel about that?

Reality TV: Here’s a short, interesting piece on lawsuits that result from reality shows.  Considering the lengthy contract we signed for Wheel of Fortune (and that was just a little game show!), we’re surprised suits like these are even possible!

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning an “anti-makeover” reality show.  Instead of figuring out what that means, can’t they just go back to I Love Lucy repeats?
