The cover of West's 52-page book.

The cover of West's 52-page book.

Chris Brown: Hours after he proclaimed he’s “not a monster” in a YouTube video, news broke that he’s been slapped with a lawsuit by a photog who claims Brown’s bodyguard beat him up.  We’d say the hits just keep on coming, but that would just be a really bad pun.

PEOPLE: Put together a handy–but short–guide to some of the celebrity deejays out there.  Kind of cool.

Perez Hilton: The culprit named in E!Online’s “Stolen Quote of the Day.” Perez stealing content?  Shocking!  Or not.

Kanye West: A self-proclaimed “non-reader” who has a book–if you can even call it that–coming out.  Makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?

Bill Clinton: Reportedly a fan of 24, Mad Men and Damages.  Do presidents not like to laugh or something?

SIZZLED OUT: Amy Winehouse

STILL SIZZLING: An oft-repeated catchprase from this iconic 90s show topped the Paley Center’s list of 5o Funniest Phrases.

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.

Real-life lovebirds!

Real-life lovebirds!

Obama: Not even the president can stand in the way of American Idol.  Though Obama said he wants primetime coverage this week for a press conference, Fox is refusing to give it to him.  The reason?  The conference could cut in to time scheduled for the Idol results show.

Fox: Here’s something the network IS willing to do: hold a contest to find the next best script writer.  If that means less reality shows, then that’s fine with us.

Slumdog Millionaire: Know how to make a great movie even better?  Have the two leads fall in love!  Slumdog’s Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are in a relationship, Patel’s mother confirmed.  Too cute!

Wolverine: News flash–superheros (or rather, the actors that play them) are not infallible.  The planned Mexico City premiere for Wolverine has been canceled due to the spread of the deadly swine flu.

Saved by the Bell: Gotta give Jimmy Fallon credit for trying to stage an SBTB reunion on his show.  Love this segment, which so closely paraodies one of the episodes, it’s kind of scary…in a good way!

YouTube: Does the phrase “shoes, betch!” mean anything to you?  If it does, you have to check out the latest video by “Kelly,” the character responsible for Shoes and Text Message Break-Up.

Gawker: It looks pretty but it’s really quite sad.  Gawker put together an image of all the recently-folded magazines.

SIZZLED OUT: Eminem

STILL SIZZLING: This singer and her ex say they’re modeling their second go-round on long-term couples like Tim Robbins & Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russel.

David Cook: The reigning Idol will participate in a charity run benefiting brain cancer research. Cook has seen the devastating effects of the disease first-hand, as his brother is currently battling it.  We wish them both the best of luck.

YouTube: Upping the ante in its battle against Hulu, the video-sharing site will increase its offering of free television shows.

Ashton Kutcher: At approximately 1:10am (central time), Kutcher became the first Twitter user to get a million followers.  CNN, ever the good sport, was quick to admit its defeat.  Good fun had by all.  Now when does the unfollowing start?

Oprah: Caught the Twitter bug, too, and will dedicate today’s show to the subject.

SIZZLED OUT: Fantasia

STILL SIZZLING: Cameron Diaz shaves her head–or so it seems–in the trailer for this new movie based on a heartbreaking book.

Is this what Donna Martin looks like today?  We still don't know!

Is this what Donna Martin looks like today? We still don't know!

Tori Spelling: Might returning to one show on The CW mean returning to another?  That’s what people are speculating now that Spelling’s signed on to reprise an earlier guest-starring role on Smallville.  Donna Martin may be the next stop but we say no D without the other D: David!

Diablo Cody: Used her EW column to gush about her joy in watching the new 90210.  Are you kidding, Diablo?  True fans find NO JOY in the new 90210!

Lindsay Lohan: Don’t know we’ll get any better confirmation than this: “It’s pretty obvious who I’m seeing.”  Yes, Lindsay, yes it is.

YouTube: In an effort to one-up Hulu, the original video site will now stream movies for free. The catch: the movies are only from MGM.  Can’t remember the last MGM film you liked?  Yeah, neither can we.

Generation O: Forget generation Y.  A new president has redefined what it means to be young in America.  Or so says The New York Times.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: The Republican governor can rejoin his wife–Democrat and Kennedy relative Maria Shriver–in the bedroom now that the election is over.  We say he should still be banned as long as gay marriage is.

Newspapers: Sadly, the extreme sales brought on by Obama’s win aren’t likely to last.  One newspaper, though, has made a plea to keep the renewed love affair going.

Twilight: What does the vampire saga owe to the pop culture icons that came before it?  Plenty.  And it’s time someone finally took notice, dammit.

Cosby: Also finally, a good look at what Obama owes to Bill Cosby and The Cosby Show.

Nicole Kidman: My, oh my.  We can’t do any better than simply repeating the lede of this article: Nicole Kidman as the world’s first post-op transsexual, married to Charlize Theron? You betcha.

Adrienne Bailon: A Disney star does it again!  Scandalous photos from this Cheetah Girl were “leaked.”  The apologies and accusations have already begun.

SIZZLED OUT: Gavin Rossdale

STILL SIZZLING: The perk of animated films?  Not having to shower before going to work, says these two comic stars!
