The latest example of Pixar genius

The latest example of Pixar genius

Chris Brown: The New York Times has a really interesting piece exploring why teens might be siding with him in the Rihanna case.  The court of law may decide his legal fate, but these kids get to decide whether to make or break his career.

Jennifer Lopez: Joined (ironically?) by a bunch of young C-list stars in a West Side Story photo spread in Vanity Fair.

Obama: Made some good quips with Jay Leno last night, but do people want a president that’s funny and taking time out for late-night appearances?  Or does that make him seem more “real”?

Family Guy: Here’s a nomination for weirdest cross-over in TV history.  Stewie will interact with David Boreanaz’s character on an upcoming episode of Bones.

VH1: Bringing back one of their old staples, Behind the Music.  Which is interesting considering they don’t seem to do much with music these days.  So far only Lil’ Wayne and Scott Weiland have been announced as the biography series’ subjects.

Pixar: The creators of Wall-E will have the honor of opening the prestegious Cannes Film Festival with their newest film, Up.  With their track record, it’s bound to be a hit.

Twitter: The staff at Good Morning America is so happy about their Twitter use that they released a statement saying how they more followers than competing news programs.  ‘Cause, you know, that’s what’s most important.

SIZZLED OUT: Kanye West

STILL SIZZLING: This comedian isn’t laughing now that he watched his own brother be indicted for stealing his money.

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

She has greatest hits, but some forgettable looks!

Rihanna: One of the columnists at Entertainment Weekly wrote a great column on how people are mistaken for thinking Rihanna is a role model.  Memo to the world: being a pop singer doesn’t make you qualified to set examples for kids!

American Idol: Rumor has it that the producers already “picked” the final four.  The show’s response?  “No comment.”  Wouldn’t be the first time they’ve been accused of rigging the voting.  Definitely won’t be the last.

DWTS: There’s a ton of so-called professional post-show bloggers out there, but for an inside source, check out judge Bruno Tonioli’s over at The Daily Beast.

Madonna: Working on a greatest hits album to be released in the fall.  Will likely include new songs as well.  Does this woman ever stop?!

Natasha Richardson: With so many conflicting stories out there, we’re not going to link to anything.  Some say she’s brain dead.  Others say she was talking fine after the accident.  Let’s stop speculating and just wait for an official comment!

Facebook: As hardcore Twitter users (follow us at @sizzlemaker!), we simultaneously annoyed and pleased by Facebook’s recent changes.  Most people, it seems, are just upset because they can be.  No one likes change, do they?

SIZZLED OUT: SciFi (becoming SyFy)

STILL SIZZLING: This late actor, best known for his filmwork, directed two soon-to-be-released music videos before his unexpected death.

Girl Becomes Woman

Girl Becomes Woman

ANTM: Video of the so-called stampede at this weekend’s New York audition left us speechless.  Can you imagine that many people running–in heels?!

Lindsay Lohan: First there was an arrest warrant.  Then there was a misunderstanding.  Is anything ever straight forward with this girl?  (Insert your own bisexual joke here.)

Lindsay Lohan Pt. 2: Gawker has supposedly exposed her Twitter account.  Interesting to read in light of the above.

Charlie Sheen: Named his twin boys Max and Bob.  That’s it?  Really?  Sure you’re a celeb, Charlie?

Josh Schwartz: The mastermind behind The O.C. and Gossip Girl has developed a web-only series called Rockville CA.  If his track record is any indication, it’ll probably be underappreciated amazingness.

Nickelodeon: Say goodbye to The N and hello to TeeNick.  And if you have youngins, Noggin will change to Nick Jr.  Maybe rebranding will help it kick some Disney butt?

Anna Chlumsky: Don’t recognize the name?  Then maybe you’ve forgotten the awesomeness that was My Girl and My Girl 2.  Chlumsky is returning to the airwaves via a CBS pilot.  It’s still the year of the comeback, isn’t it?

Sizzlemaker: Working on a new Twitter-related project.  Get excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Heathers

STILL SIZZLING: This buff actor, who is trying to change his image with a series of kid-friendly films, admitted he took steroids in college.

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

No reason for this picture other than that this post needed a little male-ness.

DWTS: Guess something good can come from being dumped on national television.  Melissa, now that she’s done with The Bachelor (in more ways than one) is rumored to be replacing Nancy O’Dell.  Guess we’ll find out when the season premieres tonight!

Ashlee Simpson: As if CSI wasn’t bad enough, Simpson is taking her acting skills over to the Melrose Place remake.  Is the show doomed now?  Or was it already?

Dakota Fanning: Officially joined the Twilight sequel, New Moon.  Guess her pale skin is an asset, then?

Demi Moore: Thank god for Twitter!  Otherwise we wouldn’t know Mrs. Kutcher fights with her TiVo and watches American Idol like the rest of us!

SIZZLED OUT: Vince Vaughn

STILL SIZZLING: It’s just not funny anymore.  This TV twosome called it quits…again.

Cover of Miley's "tell-all"

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.

This is the Britney we miss!

This is the Britney we miss!

The Bachelor: The show promised a twist-ending and we got it.  As we’ve been predicting all along, this back-and-forth can’t be good for Jason’s kid!  Just look at all the couples that have failed before!

Britney: The set list for her upcoming tour has been released and we strongly object.  We want more old-school Brit!  Way too much has changed since her last go-round.

24: They may kill a lot of characters but they’re promising not to kill the Earth.  24 is going green!  Pretty sweet, right?

Milk: With an Oscar win behind him, Sean Penn is trying to get the late Harvey Milk’s birthday officially recognized by the state of California.  Yeah, good luck with that.

Brothers and Sisters: Anyone else pissed about the misleading promo for Sunday’s night two-hour episode?  Newsday Verne Gay not only feels your pain, he’s also calling it “a promotional con job of the likes I’ve never seen before, ever, in the history of TV.”  ‘Dem’s fightin’ words, Verne!

Twitter: Did The View cause yesterday’s site outage?  That’s what Gawker wants you to believe.

SIZZLED OUT: Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston (Marley and Me)

STILL SIZZLING: To make his 15 minutes of fame last a little longer, this hair-raising guy just signed a six-figure book deal.
