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.

No longer a (wannabe) journalist

Obama: His presidency may pose the biggest challenge to political cartooning.  The satirists are fretting about how to depict him without being too offensive.  But isn’t offensiveness part of the point?

Lydia Hearst: The publishing heiress has resigned from her New York Post column on grounds that her editor published something with her name that she, in fact, did not write.  Who knew the socialite had such morals?

90210: Back with new episodes tonight…and another interracial couple?  So it seems.

Jonas Bros.: Coming to a theater near you in Walter the Farting Dog.  We just threw up a little.

The Hills: We rarely write about this show because we think it kills brain cells, but we must applaud David Letterman for cleverly attacking L.C. and co. on his show last night.

Hairspray: A sequel is in the works but John Travolta says he’s unlikely to reprise his cross-dressing role.  We’re not thrilled with the idea of a sequel but we feel better about it knowing Travolta won’t be a part of it.

Janet Jackson: Her tour is really not going well.  After canceling a string of dates due to migraines, her opening act LL Cool J (though we like to spell it out: Ladies Love Cool James) has dropped out.  Refund, please.

Zac Efron: Does success in HSM mean success in all other things?  That’s what the execs of the Footloose remake are hoping.  The producion dates have been moved up following Zac’s mega-box office receipts with HSM 3.
