When Joy Behar wants to knock Star Jones off her pedestal she cuts her off on national television. But when the introspective Rosie O’Donnell wants to put Star in her place she sits down and writes a poem. Yesterday, the former talk-show-host-gone-bonkers, posted an e.e. cummings inspired poem called Star View on her blog. Within her prosaic stanzas that reference both Regis and George W., O’Donnell compares Star to a scared little girl who lost half herself. And culmintaes with the zen-like allusion to the cyclical nature of life with the couplet:
peace to star jones
every wave hits the shore
But don’t let me interpret the poem for you. Read it in full (a few times to really absorb it) after the jump… (tip via fadedyouth)
Knowing that this video would end up on YouTube is the reason I woke up this morning (well that, and the whole ‘having to go to work’ thing.) Conan’s been poking fun at the upcoming Lord of The Rings musical, and this take on it is by far the best. Watch The Lord of The Rings The Musical!… as if it were done by the people who put together Moving Out (the Billy Joel musical.) It’s amazing.
The Oh No, Please God, Don’t Let This Result In A Covers Album news of the day is:
Courtney Love is looking to sell a 25% stake in Nirvana’s back catalogue. And right now, the front-runner to buy it is… Bono.
So what does this mean for Nirvana fans, music fans, and everybody else who’s terrified by thought of U2 covering "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die" on their next album? Probably nothing. Best case scenario, Bono and his Elevation Partners equity company (an equity company! Bono is so rock and roll!) get a little money every time "Come As You Are" is played on the radio. Worst case scenario? He loses the sunglasses, hires Dave Grohl, starts wearing sundresses and marries Courtney Love. Actually, now that I think about it, I think that’s the best case scenario. Oh well, whatever, Nevermind.

It’s being reported that the Scientologists and the Kabbalah(ists?) are eager to win the souls of Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham and her husband, David. Tom Cruise himself has "come knocking on the door" and Madonna has done some recruiting for her side. Posh has been spotted reading Dianetics, but she has also been photographed wearing the Kabbalah Center’s "trademark red-string bracelet." I’m actually rooting for EST on this one.
Shea had what can only be described as the Best Night Ever. Thanks, TV!
In response to the New York Times’ proclamation that the beard is back and Michael Douglas’s flattering new hairy look, we held a contest to see what other celebrities could benefit from a flowy white beard like Michael Douglas. And with out further ado, the winner:
Congratulations Megan! The Hiltons look hot with Michael Douglas beards. By the way I read Beard Magazine, but only for the articles.
