No more swimming for you!  Or free cereal!

No more swimming for you! Or free cereal!

Michael Phelps: After photos surfaced of him smoking pot, Phelps has been banned from the US Swimming for 3 months and lost his Kellogs endorsement deal.  We always find it really frustrating when people are punished in their jobs for their private behavior!

Beyonce: First there was beef with Aretha Franklin.  And now…Etta James.  The singer that Beyonce portrayed in Cadillac Records–and whose song she sang to Obama at his inaugeration ball–says she “can’t stand” Beyonce and is going to “get her ass whipped.”  Ladies, no need to get physical!

Katy Perry: The quote we talked about earlier this week was errononeously reported by PEOPLE and Perry is pissssssed!  Rightfully so.  Is our favorite celeb publication slipping?

Jennifer Aniston: Let’s hope this quote is right–“”The man’s got balls. What can I say? I think he’s funny,” Aniston on boyfriend John Mayer.

Miley Cyrus: After being criticized for taking so-called racially-insensitive pictures, the singer says she didn’t mean to insult anyone and is convinced people are targeting her “now that Britney is back on top of her game.”  Yep, Miley, that’s exactly why…

BSB: Nick Carter is opening up about his struggle with alcohol and drugs.  That’s 2 out of 5, people…

Superbowl: Just like with Nipplegate, the FCC will investigate this year’s Superbowl porn snafu.

NCIS: Two stars are attached to the new spin-off: Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J.  Can’t see the latter in this type of show, though.

Blink-182: It’s not quite the reunion we had in mind but the 3 former band members will appear together at the Grammys.  It’s the first time they’ll share a stage in more than 4 years.

Grammys: Speaking of, we’ll be live-blogging the event, so be sure to come back this Sunday at 8PM ET!

SIZZLED OUT: Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler

STILL SIZZLING: This former talk show host will be taking over for Sharon Osbourne on the next edition of VH1’s Charm School.

Feels like just yesterday, doesn't it, Carson?

Brothers & Sisters: It was really nice that the show wanted to incorporate Proposition 8 awareness into its show.  Too bad the episode will air after the measure passed.  Damn scheduling changes.

Supreme Court: Considering they hear very few cases, it’s really bothersome that they’re spending their time debating the use of curse words on TV.  Aren’t there more important issues going on?

CNN: Were you as confused as we were by the hologram magic on CNN’s election coverage the other night?  This article explains the science behind it and, well, we’re still confused.

Gulliver’s Travels: We never had any incentive before to read the book and, whaddyaknow, that’s about to change!  The classic tale is being made into a movie with Jack Black!  That’s enough to send us right to the library.

Google: Any chance at partnering with Yahoo is gone now that the big bad government said doing so would break antitrust laws.  We happen to think Monopoly the game is a lot more fun.  Maybe not for Google or Yahoo, though.

Political Cartoons: Man, we wish we could draw.  We wish we could be funny.  Political cartoonists get to be both!  And they’ve done a killer job with election results.

Youth Votership: Turnout was up by more than 2 million in comparison to the ’04 election.  Let’s hope it keeps rising in the future.

Election 2008: In case you’ve been living under a rock lately (or you want to reminisce or you just want to be amused) MTV has condensed the entire election into a 60-second clip.  Surprisingly, it’s pretty good!

TRL: We’re less than two weeks away from when the iconic show will air no more.  Looking back on the past 10 years, it’s like reliving our childhood all over again!

Backstreet Boys: Competing with NSYNC may seem so 90s but the original boy band admits they’re “still striving to be better!”  Watch out, Jonas Brothers!

SIZZLED OUT: Pete Wentz

STILL SIZZLING: This animated show is being called out by gay-rights groups for using the phrase ‘that’s so gay.’  How stupid can be you be?  Like, duh!
