As we mentioned this morning, Tom Cruise serenaded new bride Katie Holmes at their wedding with a Top Gun-esque rendition of “You Lost That Loving Feeling.” We didn’t think much of it (we’re trying to pretend that everything post-Oprah is just a figment of our imagination anyway), but then something struck us. Have you ever heard the song? Jesus, talk about a downer!
You never close your eyes any more
When I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before
In your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it baby
But baby, baby I know it
You’ve lost that loving feeling
Oh, that loving feeling
You’ve lost that loving feeling
Now it’s gone, gone, gone
Um… this should go without saying, but when you’re singing a song with the lyrics like these at your wedding, your marriage is probably in trouble. I’m just sayin’. Read the rest of the words to this lovely wedding song below.

Take a close look at this cover of Time Magazine from 1987, and see if you can spot the primetime television star mixing in with these “Whiz Kids”… (And, seeing as there are only a handful of Asian actors on TV, this shouldn’t be that hard.) The answer is after the jump.
According to this TMZ report, Britney and K-Fed are planning to release a joint statement insisting that the home sex tape they are rumored to have made together in fact does not exist. Now, to the untrained eye, this is just your garden variety bad news. But anyone who knows anything about celebrity press manipulation immediately recognizes the alternative possibility: that there was a sex tape, and Britney bought it back in order to save what’s left of her public image. So, dear readers, in your amateur celebrity assessment opinions, do you think there never was a filmed account of these two trash cans bumping nasties, or do you think K-Fed is set for life? Vote in our poll, then leave any further theories – or speculated dollar amounts – in the comments section.
If a guy who’s– how do put this– gayish but not openly gay, covers your mouth on daytime TV and you later scold him for it, could that be considered homophobic? According to Rosie O’Donnell, the answer is yes. Today on The View, Rosie called Kelly Ripa out for the way she reacted to Clay’s manhandling on Regis & Kelly. Ripa didn’t take to kindly to the insinuation that she’s a homophobe, so she called in to The View this morning to give her side of the story. Here’s the full video. Start cringing now.
Who’s side are you on: Rosie’s or Kelly’s? And is it even possible to be called a homophobe when the person you’re talking about isn’t even gay? Well, openly gay.
The kids over at YesButNoButYes dropped a link to this collection of YouTube videos featuring stars such as Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Adam Sandler on TV before they were famous, including this one (our favorite) in which a twitchy Keanu Reeves discusses something he undoubtedly knows lots about: reading.
It’s a slow day, so drop us some more links – PLEASE!
One of Hollywood’s most legendary directors, Robert Altman, passed away last night at the age of 81. The cause of death has not been released. Altman was notoriously secretive about his health, revealing for the first time this March that he received a heart transplant 10 years earlier, but did not want to publicize his struggle for fear of not getting work. Despite the director’s age, he was still busy making his trademarked ensemble films — his last movie being A Prairie Home Companion released this year. He was a juggler of all-star performers, and his cutting satirical style was a refreshing change from the usual shlocky Hollywood fare. If you’re looking for some entertainment this long weekend, get your hands on MASH, Shortcuts or The Player for some of his best stuff.
