Will he get America's vote?

Will he get America's vote?

American Idol: The New York Times wrote the best piece we’ve seen yet exploring the possibility that the show might end up with its first gay Idol–Adam Lambert.  The world can definitely handle that, no?

Phil Spector: In trial number two, the former go-to music producer was convicted of second degree murder.  He and his wacky hair will undoubtedly face jail time when he’s sentenced in May.

Mel Gibson: News that his wife filed for divorce isn’t that surprising.  What is is that they’ve been separated for three years.  Pretty sure they both vacationed with Britney last spring, though.  Maybe we’re wrong?

Zac Efron: Probably doesn’t realize it yet but he put his foot in his mouth twice in one interview with GQ.  First Efron slammed celebs who drink and hook up publicly, then he vowed not to get married til 30, “if ever.”  And how does Vanessa feel about that?

Reality TV: Here’s a short, interesting piece on lawsuits that result from reality shows.  Considering the lengthy contract we signed for Wheel of Fortune (and that was just a little game show!), we’re surprised suits like these are even possible!

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This network is planning an “anti-makeover” reality show.  Instead of figuring out what that means, can’t they just go back to I Love Lucy repeats?

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!

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.

Do not date him!

Says Katy Perry: Do not date him!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe she seemed sad during her Superbowl performance because she was forced to lip synch?

Superbowl: If you were a Comcast subscriber in Tuscan, AZ., your football broadcast was interrupted by a 30-second porn clip.  And here everyone thought Janet Jackson’s Nipplegate was the worst that could happen!

Superbowl Pt. 2: The media industry has serious problems when it can’t even afford to send the editor of Sports Illustrated to the biggest football game of the year!

The View: Heading to LA for a special week of episodes meant to “revitalize” the show.  Among the guests: Miley Cyrus, Jay Leno and…Heidi and Spencer, who show’s producer admits he’s obsessed with.  We feel sorry for him.

Academy Awards: This year’s telecast will be designed to appeal more to a “moviegoing culture.”  We’re not sure what that means but guess we’ll find out on Feb. 22!

Diddy: Came to the profound conclusion that “hip-hop is in a recession.”  ‘Cause, you know, the rest of us are doing so well…

Katy Perry: Seems she has serious beef with ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy.  She’s advising girls to stay away from boys that “just want the milk but don’t want to buy the cow.”

Demi Lovtato: Warning her fans that she may “wear less black” as she matures.  We could’ve told you that!

Twitter: We love micro-blogging and all but this is a little too much: Erykah Badu tweeted while she was in labor!

SIZZLED OUT: Kyle XY

STILL SIZZLING: This famous singer–and big football fan–got a Superbowl-themed surprise party from his actress girlfriend.

And another one bites the dust...

And another one bites the dust...

PEOPLE: Another predictable cover: Barack Obama on Inaguration night.  At least it’s not as flashy as the other O covers out there.

Oscars: After shutting out The Dark Knight from all but one category, the Chicago Tribune wonders if the award show’s ratings will suffer.  Is there really any use in speculating, though?  We’ll find out soon enough!  (In one month, to be exact!)

NBC: As ratings continue to dive, the Peacock network is looking to reband itself (think: Must See TV).  We’ve got no ideas.  How ’bout you?

Obama: Television ratings estimates of the inaguration could be way off, says The Washington Post, since Nielsen doesn’t take into account all the people watching on the web, in school or at the office.  So, in reality, this probably was the most-watched program in history!

Obama, Pt. 2: Apparently the White House isn’t too up-to-date on the technology front.  How is that even possible?  Or acceptable?!

Sex and the City: Now that the sequel is supposedly a “go” (once again!), everyone’s wondering which of the supporting cast will be back.  Evan Handler (Charlotte’s hubby) says he hasn’t been approached yet and jokes (at least we think he’s joking!) that they could kill him off!

Katy Perry: Says give her celibacy or give her death.  Think she got the quote confused?

Backstreet Boys: Did you know Brian Littrell’s son suffers from Kawasaki disease, the same thing that afflicted Jett Travolta? And we never even heard of it before this month!

TEEN: So first they stopped home subscriptions (several years ago) and now the magazine is folding altogether.  Seventeen, you really are queen!

SIZZLED OUT: Michael Cera (Arrested Development)

STILL SIZZLING: This ailing-actor is planning a memoir on his film career and “life journey.”

jh

Does she look flustered to you?

American Idol: Did you hate last night’s season premiere?  Or that it even premiered at all?  AdAge feels your pain.

Arrested Development: It’s once again unclear whether the series will be made into a movie.  So sick of this back and forth!

Taylor Swift: It’s a frequent question in Hollywood–she can sing but can she act?  Swift will have a chance to prove she’s a double-threat when she guest-stars on CSI.

Bush: Why must he continue to torture us and schedule a farewell speech during primetime? Hasn’t he interrupted enough  TV programming already?

Britney: Her Twitter account was one of the unfortunate celeb ones hacked earlier this month and now someone on her staff may be paying the price.

Kate Winslet: Did you catch her Golden Globes acceptance speeches?  We thought they were endearing and adorable.  Her fellow Brits disagree…strongly.

Vannessa Hudgens: That Twilight report is now being denied.  Good!

Katy Perry: Peeved at PEOPLE and other mags for (allegedly) taking some remarks out of context.  Writes Perry on her blog: “When I wanna share something with the world, the world will know… otherwise, stop looking for a story, or an explanation.”

Ray Romano: Will star in a new TNT “dramedy” about guys going through a mid-life crisis.  Hmmm.  Wonder if this show is autobiographical, too…

Glenn Close: The latest celeb to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  And the best part?  We’ll be going there Friday!

Lil’ Wayne: The first story we’ve seen on who’s performing at the Grammys in February.  Can’t say we’re thrilled.

SIZZLED OUT: Wheel of Fortune

STILL SIZZLING: How will Sizzlemaker do on Wheel of Fortune?  Come back late tomorrow for a recap of the taping.  (Though this doesn’t make us feel too good.)

Not partying together

Not partying together

90210: Tori Spelling will most likely be guest-starring on 90210 this season.  For real this time.  We think.

Oprah: Not throwing the other O an inauguration party.  We’re kind of surprised.  Thought she’d be going all out!

Twilight: So they decided not to recast the role of Jacob after all.  Not that we care.

Kelsey Grammar: Will star in a new show that’s (allegedly) reflective of the current economic state.

The Daily Beast: Suggests being more web-friendly would help Obama’s administration.  Not sure we understand.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This show beat out 90210 and Fringe for favorite new TV series at the People’s Choice Awards last night.  But if you ask us, the show is kind of hard to remember.
