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.

Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty.  All together now: awwwwwwww!

Prince Charming and his Sleeping Beauty. All together now: awwwwwwww!

Zac Efron: Completely in love with the above picture of him and Vanessa Hudgens.  Very fitting that two of Disney’s biggest stars recreated a major fictional Disney couple for this portrait.  Just beautiful!

The View: In his first-ever appearance on the show, Jimmy Kimmel thought it’d be funny to come out dressed as former co-host Rosie O’Donnell.  Clever but we all know there doesn’t need to be any more fuel added to that fire.  Wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

The View Pt. 2: But Babs, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, insists she “can never be mad at Rosie.”  Again, wonder if Ro will respond on her blog?

Oprah: Doing a special show this Thursday, alongside Tyra Banks, “dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world.”  Again, should fuel be added to this particular (and personal–as in, just between Rihanna and Chris Brown) fire–or is this a great way to give a very important topic (domestic violence) some much-needed exposure?

TMZ: Head honco Harvey Levin wholeheartedly believes (as if we couldn’t tell this already) that the mainstream media should be covering Rihanna/Chris Brown even more.  Levin, meet Oprah.

Gilmore Girls: If watching it on ABC Family isn’t enough, the entire series is also coming to SOAPNet, one of our favorite channels!

SIZZLED OUT: Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel

STILL SIZZLING: She’s no longer an Idol contestant, but get used to hearing this gal’s voice during every elimination episode.

Make room for one more!

Make room for one more!

Oscars: Complete coverage here!

Oscars Pt. 2: Putting a new twist on a best/worst dressed list, The Daily Beast looks at past dresses that were unfairly slammed.

American Idol: Can tragedy earn you votes?  Finalist Danny Gokey promises that’s not his strategy but there’s no way it won’t affect people’s view of him.

Kelly Clarkson: Her entire new album was “accidentally” leaked by a foreign iTunes service.  Don’t think it’ll hurt record sales, though.

Nicole Richie: She and babydaddy Joel Madden are expecting kid number two!  Maybe they should get married?

Clay Aiken: Some reports say he was dropped, others say he left.  Regardless how you spin it, Aiken is no longer with RCA records.

Wheel of Fortune: Our episode (airing Friday!) is getting so much promotion!  There’s even a little article about it in this week’s PEOPLE!

Defamer: Merging into Gawker.  Would be sad if we thought there was a real difference between the two anyway.

SIZZLED OUT: Nelly

STILL SIZZLING: This comedian who previously said she was going to spend this year “unplugged,” took to her blog to say she’s “lovin’ Tyra” and promote her appearance on the talk show.

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.

NOT Sarah Palin!

NOT Sarah Palin!

Kevin Federline: Telling “his side” of his “life with Britney.” What timing!

90210: You can catch Jamie Walters (Ray Pruitt, whose songs were cut from the 90210 DVDs…tear!) on VH1’s new “celebreality” show Confessions of a Teen Idol. But will he perform??

Tori Spelling: The 90210 alum has apparently changed the release date of her second book to coincide with debut of her mom’s memoir. We love it!

Tina Fey: Being “sexed up” by the media, claims Salon. Won’t hurt her one bit, we think.

Gawker: We’re not even going to be able to get jobs at our back-up sites! We need a Plan C stat!

Denis Leary: Says 9/11 conspiracy theories will get some serious play on the new season of Rescue Me. The topic is both fascinating and sensitive. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!

Tyra Banks: Humble enough to say she’s not a media mogul but not so humble to say she won’t be one some day. How admirable.

Guns N Roses: So the free Dr. Pepper didn’t work out so well, and, man, are they pissed!

Michael Phelps: Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Thank you, Captain Obvious!

Sean Avery: Trash-talking will get you suspended. Just ask Sean: he called out a rival hockey player for dating his ex, actress Elisha Cuthbert, and now he’s out indefinitely!

Ethan Hawke: Along with other celebs like Ashley Judd, he designed his very own box of condoms to be auctioned off for charity. Beyond weird.

SIZZLED OUT: Katy Perry

STILL SIZZLING: This new Broadway show has barely started and its already offering tickets at 40 percent off! On the bright side, the previews generated more than $1 million! Maybe it’ll live happier ever after afterall!

A Top Model winner that doesn't actually want to be a model?

A Top Model winner that doesn't actually want to be a model?

Travis Barker: Suing for damages suffered due to the plane crash.  Can’t say we blame him.

Usher: Baby number two is on the way.  Will he name this one Usher, too?

24: Some have speculated that the show helped Obama get elected by featuring its own black president.  Kiefer says it’s all just a bunch of hooey.

PEOPLE: This is pretty, um, sexy.  A video of 100 “sexy men” in one minute.

PEOPLE Pt. 2: Released an (internal) response to the NYT’s scathing article about their journalistic practices.  As someone with pretty good knowledge of the mag’s inner-workings, we can honestly say they’re not being given enough credit.  The suggestion that they have anything but the highest ethical standards of all the entertainment/celebrity mags is just ridiculous. And until someone is actually on the inside, they should just be quiet and stop making assumptions.  End rant. (Though, one has to wonder if they didn’t shell out obscene amounts of money for exclusive photos, maybe the layoffs wouldn’t have been necessary!)

The Sopranos: Ending leave you unsatisfied?  A Duke University professor is taking it up in a new study.

The Tyra Banks Show: Moving to the CW to help solidfy their network as a “brand destination” for women.  Or something like that.

McKey: She may have won ANTM but she still plans on going to med school.  So she went through the competition with no intention of making a lasting modeling career?  Didn’t she just take the prize away, then, from someone else who would make better use of it?

Reese Witherspoon: Thinks her kids have “been treated terribly” by the paparazzi, not having any privacy, etc.  Reese, isn’t that your own fault for choosing a Hollywood life?

SIZZLED OUT: Prince William

STILL SIZZLING: This notoriously hard-assed magazine editor brushed off questions of her rumored retirement with these lovely responses: “I think that’s an extremely rude question. Leave me alone.” and “Just go away.”  Charming, as always.
