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.

Scrubbing up once more!

Scrubbing up again!

Heath Ledger: On the anniversary of his death (Jan. 22, 2008), he gets a posthumous Oscar nomination, the only one for The Dark Knight.

George Clooney: After months of ‘will he or won’t he?’ debate, Clooney will indeed make the rounds once more on ER, PEOPLE is reporting.

Oscars: Wall-E isn’t up for best picture after all.  Dun dun dunnnnnn.

Oscars, Pt. 2: The Golden Globes nominated Kate Winslet for supporting actress in The Reader.  Now she’s got leading actress but nothing for Revolutionary Road, which–unlike at the Globes–was shut out of the top categories.

American Idol: Can anything take this thing down?  Even with the inaugural festivities broadcast last night, Idol still racked up the highest ratings.  There’s gotta be a fix, right?  Or were people Obama-ed out by nightfall?

Veronica Mars: Fans who felt jilted by the show’s cancellation a few years back can rejoice now that a movie adaptation is finally underway.  Never watched the series but probably could be convinced to go see it.

Fall Out Boy: Recorded a special version of The Simpsons theme song, to be played after this week’s episode.  Our guess is Star Wars is next.

Obama: Gotta love the internet.  You can be in one place and still see practically every Obama front page from yesterday’s papers.

Obama, Pt. 2: He doesn’t have to give up his addiction!  Obama will keep the CrackBerry, now outfitted with special security encryption.  So how long until it’s hacked?

The Daily Show: Time flies!  The little series that could is 10 years old!  And Variety has a bunch of articles to mark the milestone.

No Doubt: Hey baby! Going on tour (with Paramore) this summer for the first time in 5 years!

SIZZLED OUT: Marcia Cross

STILL SIZZLING: This alleged hold-out on a TV-to-movie adaptation said he might “put the script in his shredder.”

Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Oh, Brandon, you're too pretty to be angry!

Madonna: Reportedly reached a settlement with soon-to-be ex-husband Guy Ritchie.  How many of you are disappointed there won’t be a long, drawn-out court fight?

90210: No new episodes until January.  We think this is a good thing.  Buddy TV just wrote a pretty fair assessment of the first half of the season, though we probably would’ve been a bit harsher.

90210 Pt. 2: Up for Favorite New Television Drama at the People’s Choice Awards.  Absurd.  Totally absurd.  See above.

DWTS: When Julianne Hough was eliminated the other night, we had no idea it would be her last time on the show, like, ever!  She says she doesn’t plan on returning next season, and singing will be her primary focus.  Blasphemous!

Salon: Named Robert Downey Jr. the Sexiest Man Living.  Blatant rip-off of PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive.

Wall-E: Quite possibly more popular with adults than kids.  Considering the film went over even our heads a little, we can believe that.

The Killers: What happens when you misquote one of their lyrics?  Brandon Flowers gets very, very angry.

PC Magazine: Will be on-line only in the future.  On the one hand, this makes complete sense for a mag all about computers.  On the other hand, it’s just more bad news for the industry.

Rosie O’Donnell: Promises controversy-free fun on next week’s Rosie Live.  “The job description here is to entertain. … It will be an hour of fun, laughter, singing and dancing,” she said.  We wish we were in the audience!

The View: In response to another part of the above interview, where Rosie reflects on her frustrating times at The View, Babs said today (on-air) that Rosie needs to move on with her life.  She kinda is, though, no?  It’s not Ro’s fault the interviewers keep asking her questions that rehash old shit!

We know we're not one to talk, but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

We know we're not one to talk but obsessions are NOT HEALTHY, people!

John Mayer: Jennifer Aniston sent some praise his way, and now he’s doing the same for her.  He told PEOPLE: “It’s really nice to have somebody in life have your back.  That girl knows me … so whether I go to bed alone or not, to have somebody who knows you in this world, that’s a really nice thing.”  Sweet or gag-inducing?

Paula Abdul: More disturbing information is being released about the shocking death outside the Idol’s home.  All it really shows: too little action taken too late.

Joe Jonas: After several weeks of bad press thanks to ex Taylor Swift, the middle Jo Bro used his MySpace to set the record straight.  This is getting a little too Degrassi for our liking.

Hollywood: Cutting back on the holiday party extravagance and we don’t feel bad one bit.

The View: For the very first time the show is number 1 in the daytime ratings but now that the election’s over we doubt’ll last.

Changeling: We still haven’t seen this movie, and though this article kind of spoils it, we’re even more fascinated now that the real-life mystery has been solved.

Hilary Duff: The former Lizzie McGuire signed a deal with NBC to develop and star in a new TV show.  No news yet if it’ll be part-cartoon.

Obama: The first sit-down is coming and it’s with 60 Minutes.  Expect it to air as soon as this Sunday.

Lip-Syncing: Don’t try it in China.  Soon it’ll be against the law!

Wall-E: When the hit comes out on DVD next week, there’ll be a short film starring Burn-E.  Yeah, we don’t remember him either.

Michael Moore: The filmmaker was originally planning a sequel to his Fahrenheit 9/11 but instead will focus on the economy.  New times, new problems, more movies.

Justin Timberlake: Called New York City the “realest in the world.”  Is realest even a word?!  And what makes NYC any more real than the thousands of others?

Will the economy stop the monster that is Facebook?

Will the economy stop the monster that is Facebook?

Britney: The courts have named her dad “permanent conservator” of her affairs and her estate. Though apparently permanent doesn’t actually mean permanent. It’s just til another legal process begins.

MTV: MTV is returning to its roots in a 21st century way: all music, all the time, all on the web. We’ll see how long this lasts.

Republicans: Inherently funnier or just easier to make fun of? McCain and company have been punchlines seven times more than the Obama folks on late-night TV.

Willa Holland: Loved her on The O.C. and we wish some of that bitchiness came through on Gossip Girl. Two more episodes to wow us, Willa.

Facebook: Could hire its 1,000th employee or could start massive layoffs. Undoubtedly will still define a generation and perhaps that’s really all that matters.

Oscars: Might the Best Picture category be a showdown between The Dark Knight and Wall-E? Might this be premature since the awards won’t be handed out til February? Yes and yes.

Jennifer Hudson: Speaking of showdowns, people are already speculating which celebrity magazine will better cover the tragedy. Sad excuse to make money or legitimately just doing their job?

Christian Science Monitor: Going out of print, effective early spring 2009. Still available on the web, though. What other papers will follow?

The View: “Don’t believe anything the blogs are saying,” said co-host Sherri Shepherd. We’re insulted!

SIZZLED OUT: Dustin Milligan (90210)

STILL SIZZLING: They say history repeats itself, especially on television. Case-in-point: This 90s favorite is being retooled to add its residence to next year’s fall schedule.
