Earlier this season, I couldn’t get enough of AI. The freak-show part is great, but it’s also great to discover singers who are really great, like Paris. But once they get beyond the auditions, it’s just a bunch of somewhat talented singers singing cheesy songs. Where’s the fun of that? It’s like watching the girl who always sings Annie Lennox songs or "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" at karaoke. Sure, she sounds good, but what fun is it? Or maybe it’s more like watching skinny Jared talking about Subway these days. He’s a fine spokesman, but it’s no fun unless he’s holding up his fat pants. Anyway, I can’t wait till next season.
I know Lindsay Lohan doesn’t want to be known as a "teen queen," but I do! So I took this quiz to find out which teen queen I am. It turns out that I’m Mandy Moore!
I just want everyone to know that I am not engaged to Zach Braff.
Dear Donald J. Trump,
While perusing the World Wide Web (Information Superhighway) today, I ran across an open letter you wrote to Martha Stewart, lambasting her low-rated, totally inferior version of your hit show, The Apprentice. Frankly, I couldn’t agree with you more.
Martha’s version of the show was a complete trainwreck, whereas your last season of The Apprentice was NBC’s highest-rated show (behind E.R., My Name Is Earl, Las Vegas, Crossing Jordan, Medium and all three incarnations of Law & Order). Where does that glorified soccer mom get off blaming her own failure on a proven television genius like yourself, The Donald?
There are lots of reasons to love JC penny. It’s the only place you can go to score a $59 diamond engagement ring and their satin housecoats make great Christmas gifts for Grandma. But the best reason to love the department store franchise is right here:

Nick, I understand you’re asking for spousal support from Jessica. I’m here to tell you that that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Even though she was clearly the brains behind the whole Nick and Jessica phenomenon, you’re still extremely talented, and you have a long career ahead of you. Why in the world would you need more money than you will already make with your music, TV shows, and movies? Just make a clean break with her and move on to your next project. Otherwise, you’ll just seem greedy.
