Asking for trouble!

Asking for trouble!

Chris Brown: Some radio stations are refusing to play his (arguably) hit songs, part of the backlash for his alleged assault on (as far as we’re concerned) alleged victim, Rihanna.  Is it fair for the stations do this?  We think not.  Innocent until proven guilty!  Everyone’s just running on gossip right now.

Jennifer Aniston: In honor of her 40th birthday (which was yesterday), PEOPLE put together an on-line gallery of their magazine covers that featured her.  Most interesting: all the ones that feature her and Brad!

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: The Daily Beast does its own tribute with a look at all the love lessons poor Jen should’ve learned from her movies!

A-Rod: In an article on how to save his reputation, The Daily Beast suggests staying away from Madonna.  We probably could’ve told him that!

Bruce Springsteen: Took to his blog to write a very lengthy post about his Superbowl experiences, including his now infamous crotch slam.  Not that we needed to be reminded of it.

ACMs: Nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards were revealed yesterday, with Carrie Underwood as the only female up for entertainer of the year.  Really, no other woman was worthy of consideration?!

Pushing Daisies: If you miss the underappreciated and prematurely canceled show, you can now catch it on TheWB.com!

Sirius XM: Not even a year since the satellite radio companies merged, and the conglomerate is already facing trouble.  The New York Times reports that the company will likely file for bankruptcy, and might lose big-name stars like Howard Stern and Martha Stewart.

Ticketmaster: Planning a merger of its own, with LiveNation.  But for it to actually happen, the companies have to prove they’re not breaking any anti-trust laws.

Digital T V: If you thought you caught a break when Congress approved a delay in the switch from analog signals, you may have been mistaken.  Almost 500 stations are still planning to make the change prior to the extended deadline.  Good luck everyone!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: This singer-actress recently got back together with her musician boyfriend–and now they’re engaged!  Guess she has a crush on him still!

No more swimming for you!  Or free cereal!

No more swimming for you! Or free cereal!

Michael Phelps: After photos surfaced of him smoking pot, Phelps has been banned from the US Swimming for 3 months and lost his Kellogs endorsement deal.  We always find it really frustrating when people are punished in their jobs for their private behavior!

Beyonce: First there was beef with Aretha Franklin.  And now…Etta James.  The singer that Beyonce portrayed in Cadillac Records–and whose song she sang to Obama at his inaugeration ball–says she “can’t stand” Beyonce and is going to “get her ass whipped.”  Ladies, no need to get physical!

Katy Perry: The quote we talked about earlier this week was errononeously reported by PEOPLE and Perry is pissssssed!  Rightfully so.  Is our favorite celeb publication slipping?

Jennifer Aniston: Let’s hope this quote is right–“”The man’s got balls. What can I say? I think he’s funny,” Aniston on boyfriend John Mayer.

Miley Cyrus: After being criticized for taking so-called racially-insensitive pictures, the singer says she didn’t mean to insult anyone and is convinced people are targeting her “now that Britney is back on top of her game.”  Yep, Miley, that’s exactly why…

BSB: Nick Carter is opening up about his struggle with alcohol and drugs.  That’s 2 out of 5, people…

Superbowl: Just like with Nipplegate, the FCC will investigate this year’s Superbowl porn snafu.

NCIS: Two stars are attached to the new spin-off: Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J.  Can’t see the latter in this type of show, though.

Blink-182: It’s not quite the reunion we had in mind but the 3 former band members will appear together at the Grammys.  It’s the first time they’ll share a stage in more than 4 years.

Grammys: Speaking of, we’ll be live-blogging the event, so be sure to come back this Sunday at 8PM ET!

SIZZLED OUT: Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler

STILL SIZZLING: This former talk show host will be taking over for Sharon Osbourne on the next edition of VH1’s Charm School.

Do not date him!

Says Katy Perry: Do not date him!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe she seemed sad during her Superbowl performance because she was forced to lip synch?

Superbowl: If you were a Comcast subscriber in Tuscan, AZ., your football broadcast was interrupted by a 30-second porn clip.  And here everyone thought Janet Jackson’s Nipplegate was the worst that could happen!

Superbowl Pt. 2: The media industry has serious problems when it can’t even afford to send the editor of Sports Illustrated to the biggest football game of the year!

The View: Heading to LA for a special week of episodes meant to “revitalize” the show.  Among the guests: Miley Cyrus, Jay Leno and…Heidi and Spencer, who show’s producer admits he’s obsessed with.  We feel sorry for him.

Academy Awards: This year’s telecast will be designed to appeal more to a “moviegoing culture.”  We’re not sure what that means but guess we’ll find out on Feb. 22!

Diddy: Came to the profound conclusion that “hip-hop is in a recession.”  ‘Cause, you know, the rest of us are doing so well…

Katy Perry: Seems she has serious beef with ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy.  She’s advising girls to stay away from boys that “just want the milk but don’t want to buy the cow.”

Demi Lovtato: Warning her fans that she may “wear less black” as she matures.  We could’ve told you that!

Twitter: We love micro-blogging and all but this is a little too much: Erykah Badu tweeted while she was in labor!

SIZZLED OUT: Kyle XY

STILL SIZZLING: This famous singer–and big football fan–got a Superbowl-themed surprise party from his actress girlfriend.

Scroll down to see when this classic episode first aired!

Scroll down to see when this classic episode first aired!

Jennifer Hudson: Maybe we’re reading too much into it but her face just seemed so sad during her Superbowl performance, the first one since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew in October.

Bruce Springteen: The Boss, on the other hand, was overly enthusiastic, going as far as sliding across the stage…and slamming his crotch into a camera.  Just as funny: when he said “I’m going to Disneyland!”  Guess he forgot he was in Tampa and in Florida it’s called Disney World!

The Daily Beast: Their lookback at some of the best post-Superbowl programming includes a classic Friends episode with Julia Roberts and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s debut on Survivor.  Our favorite: Kevin and Winnie’s first kiss on The Wonder Years.

Britney: News broke late on Friday that she and her conservator (aka her dad) obtained restraining orders against Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi, the creepos who were in life back when it was going down the tubes.

Michael Phelps: So aside from the fact that smoking marijuana is illegal, we don’t see what the big deal is.  It’s such a common thing for people his age.  And it’s unfair that, because of his Olympic success, he’s been put on this pedestal in a role model-like position.  Cut him some slack!

Oprah: We have to wonder if hiring a former MTV CEO to head up her network is the best idea.  Something tell us MTV and the Oprah Winfrey Network won’t be going after the same audiences…

Obama: The other famous O is featured on the cover of Entertainment Weekly and it’s quite an unflattering photo.  They made his head look huge!

Wheel of Fortune: If you watch all this week, you’ll see the contestants that we taped with!  Our episode, however, doesn’t air til the 27th.

SIZZLED OUT: Anna Faris (Chris Pratt)

STILL SIZZLING: ABC Family shook up their schedule by announcing 3 news shows–and the canceling of this cult fave.

Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Wonder how Diddy's feeling right about now...

Jessica Simpson: This doesn’t happen that often. Simpson said some wise words at her concert last night: “”I feel like in our world today we focus on so many things that are completely pointless.”  No doubt she’s referring to the recent hubbub surrounding her weight.

The View: Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is pregnant again!  This will be her third baby in less than 4 years!  We should be so lucky!

Obama: The Washington Post claims cartoonists are focusing too much on emphasizing the new president’s lips.  Racist or not?  Or just comes with the territory?

The CW: Returning to the listings grid in TV Guide.  In case you actually still need one of those things.

Danity Kane: The Making The Band/Diddy-formed group has completely broken up.  Guess they’re really damaged now!

Superbowl: Just face it: no party you plan or attend will top what the stars have planned for the big day.  We can’t wait til we’re famous!

The Office: After the game, don’t forget to watch the star-studded episode, which is sure to get super ratings.

Forbes: On their Web Celeb 25 list, Perez Hilton comes in a number one for the second year in a row.  How much longer do you think that’ll last?

Twitter: New to the game and don’t know who to follow?  As a companion piece to the above article, Forbes also has a list of the most influential Twitterers.

SIZZLED OUT: Rachael Ray

STILL SIZZLING: This actress, mostly known for the endless aray of spoofs she’s starred in, is getting serious with a former Everwood actor.  They’re engaged!

Looks good to us!

Looks good to us!

Jessica Simpson: Just the latest star to get slammed online for gaining weight.  Like it’s a crime to be a size 8!  Surprisingly, sister Ashlee made a great case on her blog as to why we should just leave Jessica–and all women–alone.

Slumdog Millionaire: The families of the child actors that played Latika and Salim are alleging they’ve been exploited by the film’s execs and production company.  Could this be the end of Slumdog’s positive press run?

The Reader: Will get to submit 4 producer names in the Oscars Best Picture category instead of the usual 3, since two of those producers (sadly) died partway through production.  Sounds fair, no?

Lisa Kudrow: Producing a new reality show where celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Susan Sarandon research their families.  Sounds fascinating, just like most reality shows.

Facebook: Seems like every day there’s a hoard of new fan pages.  Most popular page: Barack Obama.  Wonder how long til that ends?

Facebook Pt. 2: A new study suggests how many friends you have in life are related to your genes.  And now Gawker is trying to use to that to explain Facebook and a user’s popularity.  Something got lost in translation, no?

Joaquin Phoenix: Entertainment Weekly says they have sources that prove Phoenix’s foray into rapping is a “hoax.”  Yawn.

PETA: Their ad for the Superbowl was rejected but it seems they won out in the end (and it was all purposefully done) to attract people to view it–and PETA’s message–online.  The ad is pretty scandalous, we must admit.

Tyra Banks: Getting the “exellence in media” award from GLAAD.  Never thought the two had much in common but guess we’re wrong.

Twitter: If you’re on it, you should follow NUTwitProject and help some students try to save the world.  Okay, not really.  But you should still follow them and answer their questions!

SIZZLED OUT: Ugly Betty

STILL SIZZLING: Looks like someone new does in fact own them!  This classic 90s feminist movie is headed to Broadway.

this totally turns us on!

We admit it: this totally turns us on!

Tom Cruise: Admits he was “arrogant” in his infamous Matt Lauer interview.  We forgave him a long time ago, but we know we’re in the minority.

Madonna: Will pay Guy Ritchie between $72 and $96 million.  Well, which is it?  There’s a big difference between the two!

OTH: Hmmmm.  Supposedly even with a Melrose remake, One Tree Hill could get a seventh season–with Schwahn!  We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

Gossip Girl: The book series’ author hates the way the show depicts Aaron, Serena’s new beau.  Considering he gives us the creeps, we completely agree!

Prison Break: We watch and we watch and we’re still confused. Totally frustrating.

Rachael Ray: If you looked forward to the chatterbox having no voice for several weeks, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.  Surgery has been called off for now, as a new treatment for her sore vocal chords seems to be working.

The Crow: One of our favorite cult movies is being remade!  But we really can’t see anyone but the late Brandon Lee playing the lead!  Lee was killed during film when a real bullet accidentally dislodged from a prop gun.  So sad.

The Office: Here’s one more reason to watch the post-Superbowl episode: Jack Black will be on it!

Facebook: Decreased in value by more than $15 billion!  What do you think it’s worth?

SIZZLED OUT: Terminator

STILL SIZZLING: This athlete was just kicked off his team–more fallout from trash-talking a rival and former actress-girlfriend.
