Asking for trouble!

Asking for trouble!

Chris Brown: Some radio stations are refusing to play his (arguably) hit songs, part of the backlash for his alleged assault on (as far as we’re concerned) alleged victim, Rihanna.  Is it fair for the stations do this?  We think not.  Innocent until proven guilty!  Everyone’s just running on gossip right now.

Jennifer Aniston: In honor of her 40th birthday (which was yesterday), PEOPLE put together an on-line gallery of their magazine covers that featured her.  Most interesting: all the ones that feature her and Brad!

Jennifer Aniston, Pt. 2: The Daily Beast does its own tribute with a look at all the love lessons poor Jen should’ve learned from her movies!

A-Rod: In an article on how to save his reputation, The Daily Beast suggests staying away from Madonna.  We probably could’ve told him that!

Bruce Springsteen: Took to his blog to write a very lengthy post about his Superbowl experiences, including his now infamous crotch slam.  Not that we needed to be reminded of it.

ACMs: Nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards were revealed yesterday, with Carrie Underwood as the only female up for entertainer of the year.  Really, no other woman was worthy of consideration?!

Pushing Daisies: If you miss the underappreciated and prematurely canceled show, you can now catch it on TheWB.com!

Sirius XM: Not even a year since the satellite radio companies merged, and the conglomerate is already facing trouble.  The New York Times reports that the company will likely file for bankruptcy, and might lose big-name stars like Howard Stern and Martha Stewart.

Ticketmaster: Planning a merger of its own, with LiveNation.  But for it to actually happen, the companies have to prove they’re not breaking any anti-trust laws.

Digital T V: If you thought you caught a break when Congress approved a delay in the switch from analog signals, you may have been mistaken.  Almost 500 stations are still planning to make the change prior to the extended deadline.  Good luck everyone!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: This singer-actress recently got back together with her musician boyfriend–and now they’re engaged!  Guess she has a crush on him still!

The family that works together, stays together?

The family that works together, stays together?

EW: Rumors about it going on-line only are false, says the mag.  That makes us happy, even if we knock them every now and again.

The Dark Knight: If the DVD is flying off the shelves, why would anyone go to see it again in theaters?

Full House: Last week we heard about a remake and now it’s not happening.  Consider us  bummed.

Gossip Girl: And don’t be fooled.  This spin-off isn’t happening, either!

Twilight: New director will likely be Chris Weitz.  His previous credits include American Pie.  Just sceams family-friendly, doesn’t it?  On the flipside, he was once nominated for an Oscar.  Screams talent?  You decide.

Harry Potter: If you love the books/films so much, you might want to book a trip to Chicago.  The Museum of Science and Industry there will have a HP exhibit through September.

Will Ferrell: And if you can’t make it to New York, too, to see his show “You’re Welcome, America.  A Final Night with George W. Bush,” stay tuned to HBO which will do a live telecast in the somewhat near future.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: Mixing business with pleasure, she and babydaddy Peter Sarsgaard (what’s with the double As?) will star together in an off-Broadway show.  Let’s hope this doesn’t mean doom for the couple, for the kid’s sake at least.

YouTube: 40 inspirational speeches, all cut from movies, in 2 minutes.  Awesome.

Gawker: Unveiled a redesign late yesterday.  It’s okay.  We’re not big fans of change, though.

Cosmetic Surgery: Do you feel like women’s mags are endorsing it?  We’ve never really thought about it, so guess that’s a no for us.

McDonald’s: Trying to start an ad war with Starbucks and we kind of like it.

KB Toys: Going out of business.  So that means Toys R Us is all that’s left, right?  Good thing that was our favorite!

SIZZLED OUT: Will Smith

STILL SIZZLING: We love this whimsical writer but people seem to be bagging on him lately.  (Hint: You can use the last name to make play on the word shadenfreude!)

Picture this face in the Senate!

Picture this face in the Senate!

Anne Hathaway: Would you pay $12,000 for a date with her? Some guy actually did. We don’t think any celebrity is worth that much!

Beatles: How about $200,000 to own their very first contract? Yeah, we wouldn’t spend that either.

Paula Abdul: Hasn’t slept at home since a fan committed suicide outside her house. Reasonable or ridiculous? We can’t decide.

Will Smith: Other celebs are banking on his 11-year marriage to stand the test of (Hollywood) time and, frankly, so are we. We can’t handle any more splits!

Jay Leno: Just because Conan is taking over The Tonight Show, Leno doesn’t have to go. He’ll just be on earlier.

Fran Drescher: Could the nanny also be a senator? That’s what she’s hoping for but we find it hard to believe it’ll happen. Caroline Kennedy does make a lot more sense.

Time: Compiled “The Top 10 Everything of 2008.” Definitely the best place for procrastination.

Online Media: Now eligible for the Pulitzer. Curious to see what, if anything, will be deemed worthy enough to win.

Gawker: Not that we didn’t know already that the media industry is floundering, but Gawker put together this handy-dandy chart of newspaper survival odds that just make things seem that much bleaker.

Network TV: New shows lead to cancellations which lead to more new shows. It’s a vicious cycle and it will gear up once again very soon.

Playboy: Christie Hefner (daughter of Hugh) has resigned her position as CEO of the company. Maybe she’s seen one too many naked ladies?

Holocaust: The subject of six films now out or soon to be. We believe this is a good thing, and wish others did, too.

Perez Hilton: Here’s your first look at his upcoming book. We have to warn you, though: it ain’t pretty!

The CW: We’re liking this new trailer, courtesy of Spoiler TV, for the winter season!

Polaroids: Disappearing before our very eyes!  Ah, technological evolution…

Wheel of Fortune: We’re going to be on the show! We tape in Los Angeles mid-January, though we don’t know when it’ll air. We’re sooo excited!

SIZZLED OUT: Which singer swears she’s completely sober now that she has a new album to promote? Answer: Lily Allen (Submitted by Ashley)

STILL SIZZLING: The quote of the day award goes to this comedian for for a hilarious one-liner: “This is the first time a First Lady can drop it like it’s hot!”

It's not easy being pretty

It's not easy being pretty

Donald Trump: Who knew the billionaire had a heart?  He’s been housing Jennifer Hudson and her relatives in his super-elite building in Chicago.

Brad Pitt: Even grown men want to cop a feel off Bradley!  Pitt was “manhandled” by his own security guard at his own movie screening.  Can’t say we blame the guy.

Jennifer Aniston: And how’s this for understatement of the year: Jen says Angelina’s homewrecking ways were “uncool.”  We were expecting something a little more colorful.

Blake Lively: Has landed on the cover of yet another magazine.  Among the so-called revelations in the interview: she has 60 handbags (in two closets), actually gets along with Leighton Meester and can memorize a 4-page scene instantly.  Sadly, no dish on her and Penn.  Now that would be revelatory!

Forbes: They have a new top-10 list: most influential stars.  No one on it is really surprising: Clooney, Jolie, Hanks, blah, blah, blah.

Jesse Metcalfe: After disappearing from the public eye, this is surely an attention-grabbing way to make your comeback.  The former Desperate Housewives star fell 40 feet off a balcony at a party for the World Music Awards.  Thankfully, he wasn’t too injured but is still under a hospital’s care.

Jaden Smith: No longer content appearing alongside dad Will in bit parts, the 10-year-old will take a starring turn in a remake of The Karate Kid.  Good thing he already knows karate!

SoapNet: If the channel is planning 3 new scripted series, what will happen to the daily repeats of our are favorite shows?!  On the brightside, we would have about 6 extra hours in our day…

Beyonce: Also know now, apparently, as Sasha Fierce,  has her whole album up on MySpace, a week before you can get it in stores.

Kanye: His elite coolness factor just went down a few notches.  He’s debuting his new single on tonight’s 90210.  Barf.

Obama: If you’re offering to organize a special event for the president’s kids, you should probably tell him.  Disney says Malia and Sasha have a standing invitation to appear on every tween’s favorite show, Hannah Montana, but the soon-to-be first family say they have no knowledge of this.  Someone’s getting fired!

Forget President Obama.  How about President Fresh Prince?!

Forget President Obama. How about President Fresh Prince?!

Paris Hilton: If she thinks “the best man won,” maybe this Obama presidency isn’t such a good thing after all!

Rihanna: Abruptly left the stage last night right before her concert’s end.  Video footage shows the singer looking like she’s going to faint.  Her rep maintains she was simply hot and tired but, most importantly, is fine now.

Disney: Yesterday we told you how Disney is trying to pimp ridiculously expensive products.  And now we know why: profits are down 13 percent!  Guess the Mouse House isn’t immune to the economy’s woes.

The New Yorker: The elite mag is finally entering the 21st century!  They’ve gone digital…for subscribers only.  Babysteps, we guess.

Barack Obama: The soon-to-be most popular baby name, reports Reuters.  We’ll believe it when we see it.

Will Smith: Gave a heartfelt–and yet, still hilarious–interview on today’s Oprah about his reaction to Obama’s election.  Pure Will.  Pure magic.

The Real World: So the trailer for the new Brooklyn-based season leaked to the internet and rapidly found its way onto a bagillion sites.  And now the clips on all those sites suddenly don’t work!  Thankfully, NBC wrote out a second-by-second recap!
