Beyonce: Subject to a “hoax” yesterday when a recording surfaced–on the Howard Stern Show, no less–reportedly of B singing quite poorly. But her camp quickly denied it was real–and claimed it was great publicity!
Tom Cruise: Pays writers what for many of us would be a year’s salary just to retool scripts of movies he’s considering. Where do we sign up?
Elizabeth Banks: The Zack and Miri actress will star in “a workplace comedy” called “Forever 21” but no word yet if it’s related to the clothing store. Would be kind of weird if it isn’t, though, right?
Beauty & the Beast: Our favorite Disney movie is just the latest classic fairytale to be remade. HSM’s Vanessa Hudgens will star in a modern retelling simply named “Beastly.” Let’s hope it’s better than all the Cinderella re-dos.
Maureen Dowd: Love the ending to Dowd’s latest New York Times column about Twitter. We think she’s only dissing it because everyone likes it. Psht.
SIZZLED OUT: Fred Segal
STILL SIZZLING: This athlete who has been accused of domestic abuse in the past weighed in on the Chris Brown-Rihanna situation, saying that Brown is a “baby'” who can’t handle his emotions.
