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…

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

DWTS: Guess something good can come from being dumped on national television.  Melissa, now that she’s done with The Bachelor (in more ways than one) is rumored to be replacing Nancy O’Dell.  Guess we’ll find out when the season premieres tonight!

Ashlee Simpson: As if CSI wasn’t bad enough, Simpson is taking her acting skills over to the Melrose Place remake.  Is the show doomed now?  Or was it already?

Dakota Fanning: Officially joined the Twilight sequel, New Moon.  Guess her pale skin is an asset, then?

Demi Moore: Thank god for Twitter!  Otherwise we wouldn’t know Mrs. Kutcher fights with her TiVo and watches American Idol like the rest of us!

SIZZLED OUT: Vince Vaughn

STILL SIZZLING: It’s just not funny anymore.  This TV twosome called it quits…again.

A thriller of a press conference?

A thriller of a press conference?

Chris Brown: Charged yesterday with two felonies but got the arraignment postponed until April, so no plea was entered.  The attorney on Rihanna’s behalf said she did not wish to prohibit contact between the two.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Jossip is one of the first outlets we’ve seen do a piece on how Brown’s being treated unfairly/inaccurately by the media.  Totally agree!

The Bachelor: Change of heart or betrayal?  Those the are words PEOPLE is floating around in their new cover story.  Should be a big seller, no?

DWTS: The new season hasn’t even officially started yet and already there’s drama!  Both Jewel, who was injured last week, and the now-injured Nancy O’Dell have dropped out of the competition!  Supposedly their replacements won’t be announced until the premiere Monday but we imagine it’ll leak before then!

Ashlee Simpson: PEOPLE has a clip of her CSI guest-appearance alongside hubby Pete Wentz and it ain’t pretty.  With no effort made to change their looks, it’s hard to believe these two are playing any character other than themselves.

Michael Jackson: So he’s planning a comeback/farewell tour (yeah, we don’t get it either) but all signs point to the fact that Jacko is still wacko.  He’s not even playing in the States!

Robin Williams: At 57 years young, the actor-comedian will have heart valve replacement surgery.  If only laughter truly was the best medicine!

Seinfeld: It’s a yada yada yada reunion!  Jerry Seinfeld and co will appear on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, their first joint TV gig in more than a decade!

The Real World: This is probably the best thing to come out of the show in years.  MTV made a biopic based on Pedro, the season one three cast member who struggled with–and eventually died from–AIDS.

SIZZLED OUT: Sherri Shepherd (The View)

STILL SIZZLING: This funny man recently got engaged.  Think anyone will crash his wedding?

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.

Wish him a happy birthday!

Wish him a happy birthday!

Lost: Premieres tonight.  Too bad we never jumped on the bandwagon.  It’s probably why we can’t enjoy this Lost/Heroes spoof.

Lost, Pt 2: But whether you watch the show or not, The New York Times has fascinating read on the guy in charge of keeping track of every single character and plot development.

Mad Men: Here’s another we haven’t gotten into.  But it’ll be back for a new season!  Never too late…

Ashlee Simpson: Who’s more desperate?  Ashlee and babydaddy Pete Wentz or CSI for employing them?

Oscars: We’re only a day away from the nominations and we finally know who will be doing the big reveal: Forest Whitaker!

Shia LaBeouf: Though he never faced charges from his summer crash, his license was still suspended for refusing a sobriety test.  Know what that means?  One year of being chaffeured around!

Jennifer Hudson: As news surfaced that she’ll perform at the Grammys, the alleged killer of her relatives plead not guilty to murder.

Obama: There’s no doubt that the question of our generation will be where were you when he was inaugurated?  But The St. Petersburg Times points out some other key and relatively recent historical events covered by the media.

Facebook: Had more than 1.5 million status updates related to Obama yesterday.  Wonder what Twitter had?

Twitter: They probably did pretty well, at least according to this.

Spongebob Squarepants: It’s been 10 years since we first met he who lives in a pineapple under the sea.  Nickelodeon is celebrating with a documentary.

TMZ: Large TV audience —-> constant episodes—-> spin-off —-> more terrible TV.  Any questions?

STILL SIZZLING: This ABC star confirmed today that her husband–and father to her two young twins–is suffering from cancer.

Who needs a fact-checker?

Who needs a fact-checker?

Rosie O’Donnell: We are sooooo excited for Rosie Live tonight!

Kanye West: An investigation is again taking place in the 2007 death of his mother, Shonda.  Californian authorities are focusing their efforts on Kanye’s cousin who was supposed to be taking care of Shonda after her cosmetic surgery.

Mariah Carey: Hmmm.  The singer didn’t exactly diffuse rumors of a pregnancy on Ellen today.  When offered champagne by the clever host, Carey first accepted but then didn’t actually drink it, giving the lame reason that it was too early to drink.  Riiiight.  Like it’s ever too early for any star to drink.

Academy Awards: The key to winning an Oscar could be as simple as having a unique haircut.  We’re off to the salon.

TMZ: The television version will be on air for at least the next two years.  Thanks, TV gods.  (That was sarcasm.)

Ashlee Simpson: Notice how her name is spelt.  Now notice how it is on the cover of OK! Now laugh.

Ann Moore: The Time Inc. CEO and mastermind behind their massive layoffs will be honored with a lifetime achievement award.  Seems fair, doesn’t it?

Was this foreshadowing?

Was this foreshadowing?

Ashlee Simpson: Gave birth last night to a boy named Bronx Mowgli.  We have a feeling dad Pete Wentz picked the name.  At least he wasn’t kidding earlier this week when he said fatherhood was “imminent.”

PEOPLE: That Sexiest Man Alive issue will feature scratch and sniff.  Even WE are creeped out.

Reese Witherspoon: Now we know for sure not to believe any tabloid that says Reese and Jake are headed to the altar.  The star herself says she’s not ready to remarry now, if ever.

Jennifer Aniston: Admits she’s computer illiterate and thinks Facebook is like “dancing with the devil.”  Sure she wasn’t talking about Angelina?

Jennifer Aniston Pt. 2: Loves watching FRIENDS repeats.  Ego trip?  She also says she watches some of the episodes and doesn’t actually remember doing them or what they were about.   We never understand celebs when they say that!  We remember every little detail of every little episode and we didn’t even make the damn things!  What’s your excuse?

ABC: The ax has fallen on not one, not two but THREE shows: Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money.  Is there anything left?!

CW: Did some cancellations of its own but none that we really care about.  Just the out-sourced shows that aired for a millisecond on Sunday nights.  In are repeats…of Jericho?  Weird.  That show was prematurely canceled itself!

Gossip Girl: To be honest, we don’t really understand this.  According to Ausiello, Connor Paolo (Eric) declined an offer to become a series regular yet will still stay on the show and somehow this is better for his career.  Whatevs.

SNL: People are speculating why Justin and Beyonce’s Single Ladies sketch isn’t available on-line.  Some say it’s JT’s fault because he wanted to be paid residuals.  Others say it’s just a “music clearance issue.”  How long til somebody caves?

SNL Pt. 2: Did last week’s show seem especially ‘gay’ to you?  Headwriter Seth Meyers was asked that very same question.

Heroes: The creator is blaming the show’s decline on DVR.  And now a TIME writer is taking him to task for not accepting responsibility.

Obama: Shows are seizing on the opportunity to name-drop the president-elect.  It’s actually kinda cool and makes them seem more real, we think.

Obama Pt. 2: The Washington Post takes an interesting look on whether it really matters if O has in fact quit smoking.

Roger Ebert: We love self-deprecation!  Ebert shows how good he is at it–and how he can be poignant at the same time–when he looks back on how his appearance has changed over the years.

Rosie O’Donnell: We LOVE her response to Babs’ insults on yesterday’s View.  Classic Ro.

Twitter: Now being used by Shaquille O’Neal.  Does that mean it’s time for us to stop?

SIZZLED OUT: Winona Ryder

STILL SIZZLING: This guy is the latest to be caught on camera with his pants down. But what will the queen say?!
