Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

Britney: Would you still go to her concert if you knew she was lip-synching the entire time?  ‘Cause, um, she is!

Miley Cyrus: In her new autobiography, she refers to ex-Nick Jonas only as Prince Charming.  Gotta love the mind of a 16-year-old!

American Idol: Not sure how we feel about voting for someone called Lil Rounds.  Are we just being name-ist?

HSM: Since no one from the original cast is likely to appear in the fourth film, MTV put together a “What’s Next” list for Zac and the gang.

Glamour: Has a very creative photo gallery of current celebs impersonating pop culture icons, including Madonna, Audrey Hepburn and even Michelle Obama.

SATC: The Daily Beast puts a hilarious spin on Sex and the City, given today’s recession-plagued society.  It is a fair question, though, to wonder if people will still want to view their excess in light of our current reality.

No Doubt: Offering their fans digital copies of every one of their songs with purchase of concert tickets for their upcoming tour.  Not a bad deal given the aforementioned recession.

Facebook: The planned new features look very Twitter-like.  Amping up the competition, eh?

SIZZLED OUT: Two and a Half Men

STILL SIZZLING: This talk show host will give people a different view of her life if her autobiographical sitcom is made into a full series.

And another one bites the dust...

And another one bites the dust...

PEOPLE: Another predictable cover: Barack Obama on Inaguration night.  At least it’s not as flashy as the other O covers out there.

Oscars: After shutting out The Dark Knight from all but one category, the Chicago Tribune wonders if the award show’s ratings will suffer.  Is there really any use in speculating, though?  We’ll find out soon enough!  (In one month, to be exact!)

NBC: As ratings continue to dive, the Peacock network is looking to reband itself (think: Must See TV).  We’ve got no ideas.  How ’bout you?

Obama: Television ratings estimates of the inaguration could be way off, says The Washington Post, since Nielsen doesn’t take into account all the people watching on the web, in school or at the office.  So, in reality, this probably was the most-watched program in history!

Obama, Pt. 2: Apparently the White House isn’t too up-to-date on the technology front.  How is that even possible?  Or acceptable?!

Sex and the City: Now that the sequel is supposedly a “go” (once again!), everyone’s wondering which of the supporting cast will be back.  Evan Handler (Charlotte’s hubby) says he hasn’t been approached yet and jokes (at least we think he’s joking!) that they could kill him off!

Katy Perry: Says give her celibacy or give her death.  Think she got the quote confused?

Backstreet Boys: Did you know Brian Littrell’s son suffers from Kawasaki disease, the same thing that afflicted Jett Travolta? And we never even heard of it before this month!

TEEN: So first they stopped home subscriptions (several years ago) and now the magazine is folding altogether.  Seventeen, you really are queen!

SIZZLED OUT: Michael Cera (Arrested Development)

STILL SIZZLING: This ailing-actor is planning a memoir on his film career and “life journey.”

Can history PLEASE repeat itself?

Can history PLEASE repeat itself?

SATC: Sarah Jessica Parker is clarifying co-star Kim Cattrall’s announcement yesterday of a Sex and the City sequel.  “All the deals are not done yet,” SJP says.  We’ve never thought of Carrie as a party pooper before but we might have to reassess that view.

Britney: How’s this for a letdown: Brit Brit did appear on-stage with Madonna.  Just not at the same time as Justin.  Disappointing but we remain hopeful for a future reunion.

OTH: We are RUNNING to get the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features a multi-page article on One Tree Hill!  Did you know OTH gets better ratings that Gossip Girl?  Damn straight, it does!

American Idol: The new season starts January 13.  Let the countdown begin!

Grey’s Anatomy: The show needs some positive buzz right about now and this might get it for them: they’re planning a February cross-over with Private Practice.   These are usually quite cheesy, though, so we’re curious to see how it’s gonna work.

Chicago Tribune: The official election may be over but the rumor of it isn’t.  The Trib has come up with joke covers showcasing different results.  Pretty funny.

NYT: The Times are taking some steps into the future: first with their own social network, and also with Times Extra, which will link to rival publications.  Which papers will follow suit?

SIZZLED OUT: The Simpsons

STILL SIZZLING: This old fellow is giving one of his many ex-girlfriends away to be married…a mere few weeks after they split!

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.
