Are they or aren't they?!

Are they or aren't they?!

Britney: Celebrated the New Year by attending her brother Bryan’s “secret” wedding.  Interesting that he got married just months after being named one of PEOPLE’s hottest bachelors!

Pink: What is the deal with ex-husband Carey Hart?  No longer married but still “love” each other–and last night, he introduced her on stage.  What a strange relationship!

Taylor Swift: Forced to share a stage with ex-BF Joe Jonas as the ball dropped.  Is it fair to assume those two did not share a New Year’s greeting?

Twitter: Getting (unwanted?) press attention after it came out Israel is using the social media site to keep people updated on the Gaza conflict.

Oprah: Remember those cute kids who changed T.I.’s Whatever You Like into an election song?  O just gave their school a check for more than $300,000.

Nikki Blonsky: No longer facing charges for an airport altercation with one of the ANTM contestants.  Her dad could still get up to 5 years in jail.

Gawker: The media company sold or is in the process of selling two of their sites: Consumerist and Defamer.  Even the on-line world isn’t immune to the economy’s woes!

Viacom: If you want your MTV, you can have it!  The company reached a deal with Time Warner Cable to keep their stations–Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, etc.–on the air.

Blagojevich: We fully expected to return from our travels and find him out of office.  No such luck.

2008: Sooooooo over the ‘top ten’ and ‘best of’ lists.  Hello 2009!

STILL SIZZLING: This celebrity supercouple may or may not be getting divorced on Valentine’s Day.  But what about the kids?!

There goes our future...

There goes our future...

Mash-Ups: We are loving the mash-ups of rap songs and children’s programs.  Some combinations: Spongebob and Eminem, Family Guy and Akon, Barney and Soulja Boy, etc. Pretty hysterical.

Kanye West: Forget music.  Kanye is switching gears (or industries) and looking for an internship in the fashion world.  Something tells us he won’t like getting coffee for the higher-ups, but we’ll let him figure that out all on his own.

Viacom: Laid off a whopping 850 people today at MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, Comedy Central and other subsidiaries.  Not a good day.

MTV: Holy crap!  Long-time correspondent John Norris is supposedly one of the fired employees!  What is the world coming to?!

NBC: And the ax continues to fall.  500 employees cut.

Eliot Spitzer: Don’t count the former gov down and out.  He’s been hired by Slate to write a column on goverment regulation.  To all wondering, this does not include prostitution.

The Daily Beast: Great piece on why Gwyneth Paltrow’s new site (which goes by the oh-so-attractive name GOOP) is a big mistake.

Bratz: Victory for Barbie collections everywhere!  A judge has ordered production on Bratz dolls to cease immediately (and for stores to send back their stock!) since the (ugly) dolls were conceived by a dude who worked for Mattel at the time.  Ah, sweet revenge!

Sundance: No less than 3 journalism/media films in the mix.  We’re dying to see The September Issue, which follows Anna Wintour and the production of Vogue’s September issue.

Chicago Magazine: Has a really interesting article on Amy Jacobson, the news reporter fired for “misconduct” when she tried to interview Craig Steib, whose wife remains missing.
