I still matter!

I still matter!

Entertainment Weekly: Amidst more internal staff changes, Time Inc. claims the magazine will continue to publish.  Wonder if they had any fingers crossed when they gave that quote…

Susan Boyle: This may seem very mean but just remember we didn’t suggest it first!  PEOPLE is doing a poll on who should play Boyle in a biopic and Robin Williams is one of the options.  We do see a resemblance, not gonna lie.

Hulu: Partnering with Disney to show ABC and other affiliated shows like Lost and Grey’s Anatomy.  Your turn, YouTube.

John McCain: What we can only guess is an attempt to remain as relevant as his former running mate, Sarah Palin, the one-time presidential candidate will be host of a war-themed movie marathon on AMC.  Fail.

The Daily Beast: Put together a photo gallery of face masks inspired by the swine flu.  Some are pretty funny.  would love to see more!

SIZZLED OUT: Tyra Banks

STILL SIZZLING: This celeb hopes she won’t be judged for falling for a prank by Sacha Baron Cohen in the upcoming film, Bruno.

Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Do you agree with PEOPLE's choice?

Chris Brown: If attorney Mark Geragos has his way, the case against Chris Brown will be dismissed.  Geragos is arguing that the case is tainted due to media leaks and should be thrown out.  It’s a big longshot but who knows what’ll happen?

Christina Applegate: Earned the top spot on PEOPLE’s annual Most Beautiful list.  Not a bad choice but not exactly someone we think is drop-dead gorgeous.  But this is about inner beauty, too, and she definitely has that.

Obama: Last night’s press conference reportedly cost the 3 big networks more than $20 million.  Are we wrong in thinking that’s peanuts for this industry?

Sean Penn: She cried in happiness for his wins during award seasons but that wasn’t enough to stop Penn from filing for a legal separation from wife Robin Wright Penn.  Hate when families can’t make it work.

Swine flu: This is an interesting thought.  Might the potential pandemic cause a rise in TV ratings?  If people are avoiding the outdoors, they might just turn to the old-fashioned television set for entertainment…

Swine flu Pt. 2: Contrary to rumors, the illness did not affect production on the The Real World: Cancun.  While it’s good no one got sick, it definitely would’ve added some new drama to the mix.

SIZZLED OUT: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

STILL SIZZLING: This model turned talk-show host appeared in court yesterday testifying against an alleged stalker.  The star hopes he’ll be walking the runway straight to jail.

Real-life lovebirds!

Real-life lovebirds!

Obama: Not even the president can stand in the way of American Idol.  Though Obama said he wants primetime coverage this week for a press conference, Fox is refusing to give it to him.  The reason?  The conference could cut in to time scheduled for the Idol results show.

Fox: Here’s something the network IS willing to do: hold a contest to find the next best script writer.  If that means less reality shows, then that’s fine with us.

Slumdog Millionaire: Know how to make a great movie even better?  Have the two leads fall in love!  Slumdog’s Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are in a relationship, Patel’s mother confirmed.  Too cute!

Wolverine: News flash–superheros (or rather, the actors that play them) are not infallible.  The planned Mexico City premiere for Wolverine has been canceled due to the spread of the deadly swine flu.

Saved by the Bell: Gotta give Jimmy Fallon credit for trying to stage an SBTB reunion on his show.  Love this segment, which so closely paraodies one of the episodes, it’s kind of scary…in a good way!

YouTube: Does the phrase “shoes, betch!” mean anything to you?  If it does, you have to check out the latest video by “Kelly,” the character responsible for Shoes and Text Message Break-Up.

Gawker: It looks pretty but it’s really quite sad.  Gawker put together an image of all the recently-folded magazines.

SIZZLED OUT: Eminem

STILL SIZZLING: This singer and her ex say they’re modeling their second go-round on long-term couples like Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russel.
