A far cry from today's Barbie!

Chris Brown: Even though critics have urged Nickelodeon to revoke his Kids Choice Awards nominations, the network says the competition and voting will proceed as planned.  Wrong message to send to kids or what does one have to do with the other?  We’re very torn.

DWTS: Newsday is a bit “incredulous” that The Bachelor’s Melissa performed so well the other night despite being asked to join the competition last minute.  The article makes some interesting points but who really expects truth in reality television anymore?

Kelly Clarkson: Idol’s first winner admits she’s never fallen in love. How is that possible when little Miley Cyrus says she has dozens of times?

Jay Leno: Doing a free stand-up concert in Detroit for the unemployed.  Says Leno: “Who’s got money for entertainment these days?”  So true, Jay.  So true.

Conan O’Brien: Leno’s replacement is getting some funny endorsements from Tina Fey, Adam Sandler and other big-name stars.  Curious to see if the ratings stunt pays off when his new show premieres in June.  Still a long way off.

K-Rock: Rock and roll isn’t here to stay if you live in New York.  Later today, the radio station is changing to the Top 40 genre. That means no more Metallica and no more shock jocks Opie and Anthony.  The station’s previous switch from rock to talk radio failed and the company offered fans a mea culpa.  Maybe second time’s charm?

Barbie: Horrible narration aside, this video provides an interesting look at how Barbie has changed over the years.  Kind of made us want to go digging through our collection!

Power Rangers: Not sure if this should make us feel old or young, but the classic children’s series will no longer make new episodes.  Probably a good thing since every season after the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sucked.  That’s right–we said it.

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Tickets to this Brit’s concert sold out in just 7 seconds. Imagine what it would’ve been like if computer sales existed back in his group’s heyday!

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!

The comic book version looks nothing like this.  Who knew?

The comic book version looks nothing like this. Who knew?

John Travolta: Jett’s official cause of death is seizure disorder.  Doesn’t make it any better.

DWTS: Co-host Samantha Harris says her dream contestant would be soon-to-be Oscar host Hugh Jackman.  Can’t see that EVER happening.

TV Guide: Has an awesome calendar keeping track of the 71 (!!!) winter premieres!

Seinfeld: You can watch it in HD…if any station buys the episodes first.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: It’s not a movie but will you settle for a new comic?

Newsweek: Don’t know what Antihero Overload is?  Example: Jack Bauer and co.

Facebook: Can you not use the words Palestine or Gaza?  Apparently so.  Thought they’d be the last ones to do any sort of censorship.

Twitter: Celebs aren’t the only ones on there.  A whole slew of newspapers are, too!

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Doth the lady protest too much? This gal is once again insisting she’s still with her significant other.

If we didn't know any better, we'd say this was taken last night at the AMAs.

If we didn't know any better, we'd say this was taken last night at the AMAs.

THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS EDITION

AMAs: The American Music Awards continually choose to feature music performances galore over broadcasting all awards.  Winners not given air time last night: Jordin Sparks, Linkin Park, Carrie Underwood, Enrique Iglesias, and more.

Christina Aguilera: Seven-song medley started the show.  Seemed original until NKOTB, Natasha Bedingfield and the Pussycat Dolls did medleys as well.  We wish she did more singing, though, and less grunting.

Jimmy Kimmel: Made great jokes about the Taylor Swift-Joe Jonas and Miley Cyrus-Nick Jonas break-ups, all of whom were awkwardly in attendance.

Mariah Carey: Was it really necessary to have an appearance on stage by hubby Nick Cannon during her performance?  We think not.

Beyonce: Isn’t it weird that she sings about single ladies when she isn’t one anymore?  And between SNL and TRL, this performance is getting quite old already.

Chris Brown: Artist of the Year.  According to this award show, at least.

Rihanna: If she kept having to hold the bottom of her dress down, maybe she should’ve realized it was too short.

Kanye: Didn’t his face seem a little puffy last night as he made rambling speeches about returning to the 60s and giving his award to Lil’ Wayne?

Queen Latifah: Performed with Alicia Keys (and some opera singer), making memorable references to Obama and Jennifer Hudson’s slain family members.

SIZZLED OUT: Jennifer Aniston

STILL SIZZLING: A recently single Desperate Housewife has been spotted locking lips with Heather Locklear’s ex.  Yet another strange combination. (And the answer is NOT Richie Sambora!)

Crazy?

Crazy? Quite possibly.

Sarah Palin: Wishes she did more interviews during the campaign.  Yeah, ’cause that would’ve changed the results!

NYT: Does the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print practice censorship?  One writer thinks so.  The word in question?  Bitchassness.

NYT Pt 2.: And what happens when the paper that has all the news that’s fit to print is spoofed?  Unsuspecting New Yorkers are scammed, as happened yesterday when a fake–albeit very convincing–issue was handed out.

The Dark Knight: Holy Batman!  A city with the same name as the caped crusader is suing filmmaker Christopher Nolan for royalties.  Does Gotham have a new joker on its hands?

InDecision 2008: Seems not everyone was happy with Comedy Central’s election coverage.  Or so says the whiny chick who got screwed out of being in the audience.

Arrested Development: There’s been a lot of he-said, she-said regarding the possibility of a movie adaptation.  And now cast member Jeffrey Tambor has taken things further: he says the film is a go!

Kanye West: Somebody get this guy some help!  He told reporters that he’s an “alien,” that he blames himself for mother’s death and that “it’s lonely at the top.”  We’d say something clever if we weren’t so baffled.

CMA Awards: Kenny Chesney = Entertainer of the Year, Carrie Underwood = Best Female Vocalist, Shania Twain = first appearance post-split from her cheating husband.  Is it just us or do you think country music after-parties are probably a lot of fun?

B.J. Novak: The Office actor is going on sabbatical, leave or whatever it is they call it in the working world.  In actuality, he’s just making a movie and will presumably return to the show at a later, yet to be determined, date.

SIZZLED OUT: Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

STILL SIZZLING: This daytime show, nearing its 21st season, is asking viewers to compose its new theme song.  The winner will receive $100,000 in addition to other prizes.

Did she feel fat when she filmed this iconic scene?

Did she feel fat when she filmed this iconic scene?

Obama: The presidential candidate’s grandmother died. What awful timing! Regardless of what happens tomorrow, now it is sure to be bittersweet.

Keanu Reeves: Spared from paying a paparazzo’s medical bills. A jury found the Matrix actor was not responsible for the injury.  ‘Cause, you know, a celebrity is never at fault.

Jennifer Aniston: Called Owen Wilson brave for making it through the rough year he faced. We think Jen’s the brave one for every day she lives through the age of Brangelina!

Kate Winslet: “Once a fat kid, always a fat kid,” she told Vanity Fair. What a great example she’s setting for her kids!

Carrie Underwood: Jessica Simpson feud be damned. Underwood now claims she hasn’t actually spoken to her former flame/Jess’ BF Tony Romo in months. “I would never mean to say anything to hurt anyone,” she said. Too little, too late?  (And by the way, great grammar, Carrie!)

Ashlee Simpson: First an Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding and now a Winnie the Pooh-based baby shower. Does someone have a Peter Pan complex? Let’s hope not considering she’ll have a kid of her own soon!
