Jacko: Alive and Whacko

Last week, rumors flew that Michael Jackson had six months to live. He’s reportedly suffering from emphysema and gastrointestinal bleeding, which would provide a non-cosmetic reason why he was seen leaving a Beverly Hills medical center earlier today. He signed autographs, including an old Jackson Five album, as he made his way to the car with rarely-seen, never-uncovered, all-grown-up son, Blanket. It seems just yesterday the lil’ guy was dangling from a balcony. Where has the time gone?

Chloe Sevigny Doesn’t Give A Sheet

Chloe Sevigny plays an uptight Mormon wife on HBO’s Big Love, but anyone with a clue knows she’s been an irrepressible hipster icon since she was plucked from obscurity by Sassy magazine in 1993. Just in case you’ve forgotten, Sevigny showed up at the show’s third season premiere party in one slighty whitey. Toga! Toga! Toga!

Amanda Bynes and Doug Reinhardt Split

It was over almost as quickly as it began. Amanda Bynes and Lauren Conrad‘s ex Doug Reinhardt have split, a source close to Amanda reveals.

“She ended it. She had had enough,” the pal says. “Her friends didn’t trust him,” the source continues. No shocker there: on The Hills, Doug famously shared a romantic dinner with Lauren Conrad’s pal and Spencer’s sister Stephanie Pratt, after Doug had already dated L.C. – sneaky, sneaky!!!

“Everyone thought he was using her for her celebrity. He was not good, and she was over it. It was definitely her who ended it,” the pal dishes.

On Tuesday, Doug denied reports that their relationship was on the rocks. “Everything is really good,” he said. “We were just in the Bahamas, and we spent Christmas together…everythings really solid.”

Doug should have known things with Amanda were not going to be forever. Amanda told Cosmopolitan that she never intends to get married. “I feel trapped with the idea of marriage,” she said. [Source: Us Weekly; Photo: Getty Images]

Brendan Fraser: Hot Or Not?

Brendan Fraser‘s done pretty well for someone who played a caveman in a Pauly Shore movie. He’s starred in critically respected films like Gods And Monsters and The Quiet American, as well as the blockbuster Mummy series. But seeing him sign copies of Inkheart at a NYC Borders yesterday (the movie adaptation comes out next week), we couldn’t help but wonder how this goofball got in two $100m-grossing movies last year.  Check out the gallery and decide whether he’s got it, lost it, or never had it in the first place.

Anoop Desai Is Going To Geek Simon’s World On Idol

Simon Cowell may have been turned off by Anoop Desai‘s nerdy appearance at his American Idol audition (“you look like you came from a meeting with Bill Gates“), but we have a feeling this guy’s going to be a contender for the top spot. Check out some of his work with the UNC Clef Hangers, an a capella group at the University of North Carolina, where Desai studied Southern Folklore. Watching this guy croon everything from Brian McKnight‘s “The Only One For Me” (above) to T-Pain‘s “Buy U A Drank,” it’s clear that this nerd is really a heartthrob. They’re already shrieking for him at school, so just wait until he gets to Hollywood. Anoop Dogg is hot! Fire!

Watch the video for “Buy U A Drank” and more from Anoop and the Clef Hangers after the jump.
