Chris Brown: Even though critics have urged Nickelodeon to revoke his Kids Choice Awards nominations, the network says the competition and voting will proceed as planned. Wrong message to send to kids or what does one have to do with the other? We’re very torn.
DWTS: Newsday is a bit “incredulous” that The Bachelor’s Melissa performed so well the other night despite being asked to join the competition last minute. The article makes some interesting points but who really expects truth in reality television anymore?
Kelly Clarkson: Idol’s first winner admits she’s never fallen in love. How is that possible when little Miley Cyrus says she has dozens of times?
Jay Leno: Doing a free stand-up concert in Detroit for the unemployed. Says Leno: “Who’s got money for entertainment these days?” So true, Jay. So true.
Conan O’Brien: Leno’s replacement is getting some funny endorsements from Tina Fey, Adam Sandler and other big-name stars. Curious to see if the ratings stunt pays off when his new show premieres in June. Still a long way off.
K-Rock: Rock and roll isn’t here to stay if you live in New York. Later today, the radio station is changing to the Top 40 genre. That means no more Metallica and no more shock jocks Opie and Anthony. The station’s previous switch from rock to talk radio failed and the company offered fans a mea culpa. Maybe second time’s charm?
Barbie: Horrible narration aside, this video provides an interesting look at how Barbie has changed over the years. Kind of made us want to go digging through our collection!
Power Rangers: Not sure if this should make us feel old or young, but the classic children’s series will no longer make new episodes. Probably a good thing since every season after the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers sucked. That’s right–we said it.
SIZZLED OUT: Carrie Underwood
STILL SIZZLING: Tickets to this Brit’s concert sold out in just 7 seconds. Imagine what it would’ve been like if computer sales existed back in his group’s heyday!
