Girl Becomes Woman

Girl Becomes Woman

ANTM: Video of the so-called stampede at this weekend’s New York audition left us speechless.  Can you imagine that many people running–in heels?!

Lindsay Lohan: First there was an arrest warrant.  Then there was a misunderstanding.  Is anything ever straight forward with this girl?  (Insert your own bisexual joke here.)

Lindsay Lohan Pt. 2: Gawker has supposedly exposed her Twitter account.  Interesting to read in light of the above.

Charlie Sheen: Named his twin boys Max and Bob.  That’s it?  Really?  Sure you’re a celeb, Charlie?

Josh Schwartz: The mastermind behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl has developed a web-only series called Rockville CA.  If his track record is any indication, it’ll probably be underappreciated amazingness.

Nickelodeon: Say goodbye to The N and hello to TeeNick.  And if you have youngins, Noggin will change to Nick Jr.  Maybe rebranding will help it kick some Disney butt?

Anna Chlumsky: Don’t recognize the name?  Then maybe you’ve forgotten the awesomeness that was My Girl and My Girl 2.  Chlumsky is returning to the airwaves via a CBS pilot.  It’s still the year of the comeback, isn’t it?

Sizzlemaker: Working on a new Twitter-related project.  Get excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Heathers

STILL SIZZLING: This buff actor, who is trying to change his image with a series of kid-friendly films, admitted he took steroids in college.

A far cry from today's Barbie!

Chris Brown: Even though critics have urged Nickelodeon to revoke his Kids Choice Awards nominations, the network says the competition and voting will proceed as planned.  Wrong message to send to kids or what does one have to do with the other?  We’re very torn.

DWTS: Newsday is a bit “incredulous” that The Bachelor’s Melissa performed so well the other night despite being asked to join the competition last minute.  The article makes some interesting points but who really expects truth in reality television anymore?

Kelly Clarkson: Idol’s first winner admits she’s never fallen in love. How is that possible when little Miley Cyrus says she has dozens of times?

Jay Leno: Doing a free stand-up concert in Detroit for the unemployed.  Says Leno: “Who’s got money for entertainment these days?”  So true, Jay.  So true.

Conan O’Brien: Leno’s replacement is getting some funny endorsements from Tina Fey, Adam Sandler and other big-name stars.  Curious to see if the ratings stunt pays off when his new show premieres in June.  Still a long way off.

K-Rock: Rock and roll isn’t here to stay if you live in New York.  Later today, the radio station is changing to the Top 40 genre. That means no more Metallica and no more shock jocks Opie and Anthony.  The station’s previous switch from rock to talk radio failed and the company offered fans a mea culpa.  Maybe second time’s charm?

Barbie: Horrible narration aside, this video provides an interesting look at how Barbie has changed over the years.  Kind of made us want to go digging through our collection!

Power Rangers: Not sure if this should make us feel old or young, but the classic children’s series will no longer make new episodes.  Probably a good thing since every season after the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sucked.  That’s right–we said it.

SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood

STILL SIZZLING: Tickets to this Brit’s concert sold out in just 7 seconds. Imagine what it would’ve been like if computer sales existed back in his group’s heyday!

The family that works together, stays together?

The family that works together, stays together?

EW: Rumors about it going on-line only are false, says the mag.  That makes us happy, even if we knock them every now and again.

The Dark Knight: If the DVD is flying off the shelves, why would anyone go to see it again in theaters?

Full House: Last week we heard about a remake and now it’s not happening.  Consider us  bummed.

Gossip Girl: And don’t be fooled.  This spin-off isn’t happening, either!

Twilight: New director will likely be Chris Weitz.  His previous credits include American Pie.  Just sceams family-friendly, doesn’t it?  On the flipside, he was once nominated for an Oscar.  Screams talent?  You decide.

Harry Potter: If you love the books/films so much, you might want to book a trip to Chicago.  The Museum of Science and Industry there will have a HP exhibit through September.

Will Ferrell: And if you can’t make it to New York, too, to see his show “You’re Welcome, America.  A Final Night with George W. Bush,” stay tuned to HBO which will do a live telecast in the somewhat near future.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Mixing business with pleasure, she and babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard (what’s with the double As?) will star together in an off-Broadway show.  Let’s hope this doesn’t mean doom for the couple, for the kid’s sake at least.

YouTube: 40 inspirational speeches, all cut from movies, in 2 minutes.  Awesome.

Gawker: Unveiled a redesign late yesterday.  It’s okay.  We’re not big fans of change, though.

Cosmetic Surgery: Do you feel like women’s mags are endorsing it?  We’ve never really thought about it, so guess that’s a no for us.

McDonald’s: Trying to start an ad war with Starbucks and we kind of like it.

KB Toys: Going out of business.  So that means Toys R Us is all that’s left, right?  Good thing that was our favorite!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: We love this whimsical writer but people seem to be bagging on him lately.  (Hint: You can use the last name to make play on the word shadenfreude!)
