This your American Idol.  You okay with that?

This your American Idol. You okay with that?

American Idol: Has there been a bigger upset in Idol history?  We think not.  And we totally blame all the pre-finale hoopla around Adam  Lambert for his loss.  The hype totally backfired on him!

Kanye West: Used his blog to declare “Justin is the new Mike, Beyonce’s the new Tina Turner [and] GaGa’s Madonna.”  Kind of little soon to be making grand statements like that, no?  Then again, this is Kanye West so…

Pete Wentz: Peeved at Gawker for including him, Ashlee Simpson and son Bronx, in their Stalker column.  The result?  “Hate mail” sent to Gawker on his behalf gives them another opportunity to make fun of him.  Good work, Pete.  But we suppose this tweet was Pete’s way of firing back again.  To be continued?

Natalie Cole: The singer, who suffers from hepatitis C, had a kidney transplant this week.  What would we do without organ donors?

Kelly Rutherford: Apparently hiring private investigators to watch your husband doesn’t just happen in the movies.  If you’re Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford, it’s just one more twist in your divorce drama.

Twitter: E! Online is planning to incorporate tweets into its scroll at the bottom of all programming.  Is it fair to say now that Twitter has gone mainstream?

SIZZLED OUT: Privileged

STILL SIZZLING: The artist who voiced this iconic animal character passed away this week. Guess the Magic Kingdom will be in mourning for a while…

A thriller of a press conference?

A thriller of a press conference?

Chris Brown: Charged yesterday with two felonies but got the arraignment postponed until April, so no plea was entered.  The attorney on Rihanna’s behalf said she did not wish to prohibit contact between the two.

Chris Brown Pt. 2: Jossip is one of the first outlets we’ve seen do a piece on how Brown’s being treated unfairly/inaccurately by the media.  Totally agree!

The Bachelor: Change of heart or betrayal?  Those the are words PEOPLE is floating around in their new cover story.  Should be a big seller, no?

DWTS: The new season hasn’t even officially started yet and already there’s drama!  Both Jewel, who was injured last week, and the now-injured Nancy O’Dell have dropped out of the competition!  Supposedly their replacements won’t be announced until the premiere Monday but we imagine it’ll leak before then!

Ashlee Simpson: PEOPLE has a clip of her CSI guest-appearance alongside hubby Pete Wentz and it ain’t pretty.  With no effort made to change their looks, it’s hard to believe these two are playing any character other than themselves.

Michael Jackson: So he’s planning a comeback/farewell tour (yeah, we don’t get it either) but all signs point to the fact that Jacko is still wacko.  He’s not even playing in the States!

Robin Williams: At 57 years young, the actor-comedian will have heart valve replacement surgery.  If only laughter truly was the best medicine!

Seinfeld: It’s a yada yada yada reunion!  Jerry Seinfeld and co will appear on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, their first joint TV gig in more than a decade!

The Real World: This is probably the best thing to come out of the show in years.  MTV made a biopic based on Pedro, the season one three cast member who struggled with–and eventually died from–AIDS.

SIZZLED OUT: Sherri Shepherd (The View)

STILL SIZZLING: This funny man recently got engaged.  Think anyone will crash his wedding?

Our dream gift!!!

Our dream gift!!!

SATC: There WILL be a Sex and the City sequel!  The always dishy Kim Cattrall has confirmed rumors that have been buzzing for months.  Upon hearing this news, we couldn’t help but wonder: what’s left to tell?

Britney: We’ve been waiting for this day!  Brit Brit and Justin are getting back together!  Sort of.  Madonna has recruited the former couple to do a number on stage during her current tour.  Will sparks fly?  WE CAN ONLY HOPE!

Eliot Spitzer: Won’t face charges in the prostitution scandal that forced him to resign as governor of New York.  The state found no evidence of him using government funds, but isn’t just the fact that he even used a prostitute enough?  Isn’t that illegal?

Disney: Think Disney products are just for kids?  Think again.  Mickey and company provide a wide range of goods including…a $3,000 wedding gown and cashmere sweaters?  Yes and yes.

Melissa Etheridge: The singer is putting a new spin on ‘no taxation without representation.’  She says since Proposition 8 has banned marriage for gay people, “I am taking that to mean I do not have to pay my state taxes, because I am not a full citizen.”  A little bit of a stretch, no?

Samantha Ronson: Added her two cents the Prop 8 debate and she actually gave a pretty good analogy.  She pointed out the craziness in passing an animal-rights proposal but banning gay marriage: “yes, i am glad that the chickens will have more room and better conditions as they wait to die,” she wrote on her MySpace, “but i just think it’s frightening that people show more compassion for tomorrow’s dinner than for the chef.”

90210: Mattel will release 90210-inspired dolls next September similar to the ones made during the series’ original run.  We are very perplexed: a) the new 90210 sucks and is far from a hit and soooo not kid-friendly–why make dolls based on it? and b) what makes anyone think the new 90210 will still be around next September?  Did we mention it sucks?  And lastly, if anyone has the original dolls, we’re still looking for a complete set!

Thriller: Is the Michael Jackson song/video coming to Broadway?  Could be. Could also be a major disaster.

We know you look best when your brooding but we can't take much more!

Hot and smart? What a combination!

AniMayer: Star and The National Enquirer are reporting that these two are back on.  We’ll wait for more reliable sources before we comment.

Prison Break: Now we’ve watched the show since it began four years but if it gets any more complex, our heads are going to explode!

Gossip Girl: If you didn’t see last night’s ep, you missed some girl-on-girl fighting and Penn Badgley in nothing but his boxers.  But it’s not too late to start watching: the CW has ordered two additional episodes for this season, making 24 in all.

Teen TV: Think the lead characters always go on to big careers?  Think again.

Sophia Bush: In a new interview with CosmoGirl! (RIP), she says she only wants simple hang outs with friends “rather than dance on tables and have nine cocktails.”  Hm, wonder who she’s referring to…

Living Lohan: Ali revealed to Seventeen there might be a second season.  Brace yourselves.

Shannen Doherty: Worked out a deal to return to 90210 for two more episodes.  Not sure how we feel about this considering we were never Brenda fans in the first place.

SIZZLED OUT: John Lennon

STILL SIZZLING: Which former child star says in her new memoir that she dated Michael Jackson, Steve Martin AND her on-screen sibling?  That is one random bunch!
