Would you pay to read this online?

Would you pay to read this online?

Chris Brown: Though Nickelodeon backed his nomination, Chris Brown has voluntarily removed himself from consideration in the Kids Choice Awards.  Voluntarily or secretly forced to?  Public (and private) pressure can be a very powerful thing.

PEOPLE: Its website, along with that of TIME, could go subscription-only in the relatively near future.  Readership would probably plummet, though, as you can get practically same information on a ton of other sites.  Would it be as accurate?  Probably not.  Sigh.

Patrick Swayze: Sad that as he tries to move forward with his life, the actor has to keep debunking rumors that he’s near death.  Tabloid “journalism” at its worst.

Mandy Moore: That was a quick engagement! Less than a month after confirming their plans to wed, Moore and Ryan Adams tied the knot.  That’s some carpe diem for ya!

MTV: Forget reality TV.  The one-time music network is ushering in a new style: the scripted comedy.  Can’t see any of the proposed shows lasting, though.

Bristol Palin: Multiple sources are reporting that Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter and her babydaddy have split.  Sad, but it didn’t have a good chance of lasting anyway.  Sure the media will a field day with it, though.

SIZZLED OUT: Paul McCartney

STILL SIZZLING: These two musically-inclined friends will go on Larry King Live tonight to recount their near-death experience.

Forget Spiderman.  There's a new hero in town!

Forget Spiderman. There's a new hero in town!

Patrick Swayze: In the hospital with pneumonia.  This can’t be good.

John Travolta: Is it wrong that we have such intimate details of his son’s memorial service when Jett himself wasn’t even a celebrity or public figure?

Golden Globes: Not airing til Sunday night but PEOPLE wants you to get jealous now by reading about all the planned celeb parties.

Neil Patrick Harris: Doogie and the rest of the How I Met Your Mother cast not only extended their contracts but more than doubled their salary.  Not bad.

The View: The co-hosts were on a special panel held by the New York Times.  Why?  We still don’t know.

HSM: KayCee Stroh (the pop and lock it girl) got married today.  Zac and Vanessa were not present.

Blagojevich: Finally impeached but still not resigning.  Makes for another awesome animation by the Chicago Tribune.

Obama: Featured in a special issue of the The Amazing Spiderman comic.  Apparently Obama himself is a comic book collector.  Who knews?!

Obama Pt. 2: Everyone seems to think Michelle will have this huge impact on fashion.  We don’t see it happening but maybe that’s just because we didn’t live through Jackie O?

Miranda Cosgrove: The up-and-coming tween star will get to scope out her competition when she hosts MTV’s countdown of the top 12 teen “cribs.”  Insert your own tween/crib joke here.

Facebook: There’s a war on nipples.  ‘Nuff said.

Before...and...After

Before...and...After

Patrick Swayze: Don’t believe the tabloids, he says. (We could’ve told you that!) Yes, he does have cancer but the battle against it is going well and he is not on his deathbed. Hurrah!

SAG: Is it possible an actors’ strike won’t make much of a difference? That could be the case, predicts the LA Times, which points out that many shows are made under AFTRA rules and thus won’t be on strike.

Prison Break: Even Robert Knepper knows his character T-Bag is an “animal.” But here’s what we want to know: if the show does end with this season, as rumored, will T-Bag finally get the death he deserves?

Gossip Girl: Given how much the stars’ looks have changed since they started in the biz, we have renewed hope that we, too, will one day be magazine cover-worthy.

TV Sales: Who knew you could use them to measure the state of the economy?

Soap Operas: From fired stars to greatly-reduced salaries, the economy sure is killing one of our favorite genres. Melodramatic indeed.

Soap Operas Pt. 2: We have to give All My Children credit for casting a real-life Iraqi veteran to play one on the show. But more credit goes to J.R. Martinez himself for all he’s accomplished since being severely burned in 2003.

Salvation Army: Using Facebook and Twitter to drum up donations. Clever or tired?

Facebook: Feeling spammed by application requests? (See above for an example.) You’re not alone.

TiVo: Do you record and record but never actually sit down and watch and yet you still don’t delete? Then you’re suffering from TiVo guilt! Don’t you feel better now that there’s an actual diagnosis? We’re pretty sure we’d have this, too, if we actually had a TiVo.
