Lindsay wants the media to leave her and Sam alone.  Pictures like this will not help.

Lindsay wants the media to leave her and Sam alone. Pictures like this will not help.

Katy Perry:  Don’t believe reports that she’s dating Josh Groban.  The duo (clearly opposites!) are not together, says his rep.

Lindsay Lohan: Upset that people keep speculating on her relationship with Samantha Ronson.  Can’t say we blame her, but she has to understand by now that all this comes with being a “famous” person.

Facebook: Finally responding to “thousands” of messages from outraged users.

Sizzle: Posting may be sporadic and shortened in the coming days due to personal circumstances.  We appreciate your understanding.

SIZZLED OUT: Roseanne

STILL SIZZLING: A theatrical version of this reality show will debut at various theme parks this summer.  Not sure where it belongs, though.  Epcot? Animal Kingdom? MGM?  Universial Studios?  It could fit in so many places!

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

A screencap from JT and Ciara's scandalous new video

American Idol: It’s hard out there for an Idol, especially if you’re David Cook.  The reigning champ took to his MySpace blog to call out aggressive fans.  Warns Cook: “preventative measures” may be taken if their behavior doesn’t stop.

DWTS: We always wondered what the celeb contestants got for their participation.  We hoped and assumed it was a donation to their favorite charity but apparently that’s not the case.  Instead they get paid upwards of $200,000!

Justin Timberlake: Wonder how Jessica Biel feels about JT’s sexy appearance in Ciara’s new music video.  You can say it’s acting and just business, but we know we wouldn’t be okay with this!

David Letterman: The Late Show host is just the latest entertainer to get married recently.  Dave announced last night that he wed his longtime girlfriend and babymama. Glad to hear there’ll be one more happy families around!

Lance Armstrong: In the midst of a cycling comeback, Armstrong has broken his collarbone.  Let’s wish the cyclist and father-to-be (again) a speedy recovery.

Facebook: Still getting slammed for the recent redesign but has said nothing to appease users.  This can’t end well, can it?

Jossip: Redesigned again!  At least they’ve re-posted a slew of Ashton Kutcher’s TwitPics.

SIZZLED OUT: Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart

STILL SIZZLING: This actress-comedian is working to recapture the magic of the 90s as she develops another sitcom.

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

Rihanna: One of the columnists at Entertainment Weekly wrote a great column on how people are mistaken for thinking Rihanna is a role model.  Memo to the world: being a pop singer doesn’t make you qualified to set examples for kids!

American Idol: Rumor has it that the producers already “picked” the final four.  The show’s response?  “No comment.”  Wouldn’t be the first time they’ve been accused of rigging the voting.  Definitely won’t be the last.

DWTS: There’s a ton of so-called professional post-show bloggers out there, but for an inside source, check out judge Bruno Tonioli’s over at The Daily Beast.

Madonna: Working on a greatest hits album to be released in the fall.  Will likely include new songs as well.  Does this woman ever stop?!

Natasha Richardson: With so many conflicting stories out there, we’re not going to link to anything.  Some say she’s brain dead.  Others say she was talking fine after the accident.  Let’s stop speculating and just wait for an official comment!

Facebook: As hardcore Twitter users (follow us at @sizzlemaker!), we simultaneously annoyed and pleased by Facebook’s recent changes.  Most people, it seems, are just upset because they can be.  No one likes change, do they?

SIZZLED OUT: SciFi (becoming SyFy)

STILL SIZZLING: This late actor, best known for his filmwork, directed two soon-to-be-released music videos before his unexpected death.

Suri and Shiloh: NOT ACTUALLY TOGETHER!

Suri and Shiloh: NOT ACTUALLY TOGETHER!

Rihanna: If you record a song with your alleged abuser is it guaranteed to fail?  Or will curiosity lead to mega success? Time will tell…

AniMayer: No more?  No more?!  Really?  That’s what everyone is reporting.  Is the split for good this time?

American Idol: Is the new veto rule giving the judges too much power?  Newsday sure is arguing against it.  Given past shocking and potentially unfair ousters, we’re on board.

CBS: Planning a fall pilot about a man who resurfaces after allegedly disappearing on 9/11.  Not sure the country is ready for something like this…

OK! Magazine: We like to think our readers are smarter than this but just to be sure: do not believe the cover photo seen above!  Totally photoshopped!

Demi Moore: Might be taking the whole new media trend a little too far. Who’s gonna tell her she and Ashton are acting more like mother and son??

Mark Zuckerberg: The Facebook founder is making his Oprah debut today!  We predict a huge drop in ratings.  What moms will want to see hear what he has to say?

Jossip: Makes the argument that pop culture is returning to the 90s.  We can’t complain.  It was a good decade!

SIZZLED OUT: Travis Barker and DJ AM

STILL SIZZLING: This 1980s version of Mean Girls could get the Broadway treatment.

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Britney: Would you still go to her concert if you knew she was lip-synching the entire time?  ‘Cause, um, she is!

Miley Cyrus: In her new autobiography, she refers to ex-Nick Jonas only as Prince Charming.  Gotta love the mind of a 16-year-old!

American Idol: Not sure how we feel about voting for someone called Lil Rounds.  Are we just being name-ist?

HSM: Since no one from the original cast is likely to appear in the fourth film, MTV put together a “What’s Next” list for Zac and the gang.

Glamour: Has a very creative photo gallery of current celebs impersonating pop culture icons, including Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and even Michelle Obama.

SATC: The Daily Beast puts a hilarious spin on Sex and the City, given today’s recession-plagued society.  It is a fair question, though, to wonder if people will still want to view their excess in light of our current reality.

No Doubt: Offering their fans digital copies of every one of their songs with purchase of concert tickets for their upcoming tour.  Not a bad deal given the aforementioned recession.

Facebook: The planned new features look very Twitter-like.  Amping up the competition, eh?

SIZZLED OUT: Two and a Half Men

STILL SIZZLING: This talk show host will give people a different view of her life if her autobiographical sitcom is made into a full series.

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Worthy of praise and scholarly study?

Obama: It was only a matter of time before a political cartoon relating to our new president caused outrage.  Freedom of the press?  Low blow? Undecided how we feel.

Solange: Beyonce’s little sis had a little scare yesterday when she passed out and woke up in the hospital.  She took to her Twitter to tell everyone the problem was just dehydration.  So is this the future of PR?

Oprah: Caught part of an episode today and saw she was communicating with guests via Skype.  So is the future of talk shows?

Oscars: If you’re not into the nominated movies (and believe us, it’s possible!), here are three other reasons to watch: Zac Efron, Miley and Robert Pattison.  Still not convinced?  Yeah, we didn’t think so.

The Hills: One of the shows that will be the subject of panels at this year’s Paley Festival.  The Hills?  Seriously?

MC Hammer: Getting his own reality show on A & E.  Didn’t know he had 5 kids!  But also not really surprised…

Katherine McPhee: In addition to appearing on an upcoming episode of Brothers & Sisters, the former American Idol contestant will do a guest stint on CSI.  Looks like someone has a case of the acting bug!

USA Today: We like this headline–‘Lost’ and ’24’: Simple titles, complex, brilliant shows.

Facebook: A recent uproar about Terms of Service changes may have been quelled but it’s still worth reading what happened and who was behind it.

SIZZLED OUT: Justin Guarini

STILL SIZZLING: This popular former game show host admits he’s not one of its “loyal” viewers.  Guess he doesn’t want to come on down to TV set.

FAIL

FAIL

Dollhouse: The highly-anticipated new show from Joss Whedon pretty much tanked in the ratings.  Can’t say we’re surprised.  We never understood why people see him as such a god.  Guess it would helped if we actually liked sci-fi.

The Bachelor: Finally!  An article that gives credit to the little boy that is totally responsible for the show’s increase in ratings.  Sad thing is this whole experience will probably scar him for life.  Sigh.

Oscars: As the big night approaches (we’re less than a week away!  hurrah!), more details are being leaked to the press.  But as often is the case with award shows, we all know anything can change at the last-minute.

The Apprentice: We love irony like this.  The show is a mere few weeks from returning and Trump and his casinos will likely be filing for bankruptcy.  Guess that NBC paycheck is more important than ever now.  Does that mean the pressure’s on us or him?

Facebook: This never occurred to us.  The more users a social networking site like FB has, the bigger headache it can be for the execs.  Vallywag explains why.

SIZZLED OUT: Nancy O’Dell (Access Hollywood)

STILL SIZZLING: This actress married her babydaddy on Valentine’s Day–a few months after breaking off their engagement!
