The subject of a new movie?

The subject of a new movie?

Beyonce: Subject to a “hoax” yesterday when a recording surfaced–on the Howard Stern Show, no less–reportedly of B singing quite poorly.  But her camp quickly denied it was real–and claimed it was great publicity!

Tom Cruise: Pays writers what for many of us would be a year’s salary just to retool scripts of movies he’s considering.  Where do we sign up?

Elizabeth Banks: The Zack and Miri actress will star in “a workplace comedy” called “Forever 21” but no word yet if it’s related to the clothing store.  Would be kind of weird if it isn’t, though, right?

Beauty & the Beast: Our favorite Disney movie is just the latest classic fairytale to be remade.  HSM’s Vanessa Hudgens will star in a modern retelling simply named “Beastly.”  Let’s hope it’s better than all the Cinderella re-dos.

Daily Beast: Has a short photo gallery on how shows hides actresses’ pregnancies.  Timely because of the Pompeo news.

Maureen Dowd: Love the ending to Dowd’s latest New York Times column about Twitter.  We think she’s only dissing it because everyone likes it.  Psht.

SIZZLED OUT: Fred Segal

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete who has been accused of domestic abuse in the past weighed in on the Chris Brown-Rihanna situation, saying that Brown is a “baby'” who can’t handle his emotions.

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!
