The Queen B joined country group Sugarland onstage at the American Music Awards on Sunday night to come together singing B’s hit Irreplaceable, and well, just watch. Something is just not quite right – the country twang and banjo riff just doesn’t get the song’s sass right. The performance ends up looking (and sounding) uncomfortable and weird, like someone wearing one of those handmade Destiny’s Child outfits (made by Beyonce’s mom) with a pair of really stiff, brand new cowboy boots. Some things, while awesome on their own, just don’t work that well together, which of course means that we can’t stop watching this video over and over again. To the left, ya’ll!

Even superstars can feel less-than on occasion. Take Heroes star Hayden Panettiere. When VH1 News caught up with her on the red carpet outside the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she explained that she felt the need to wear something really tight — form-fitting, you might say — and pair it with high, high heels. Other stars weighed in, too. Check the videos above for comments from the Spice Girls and Seal.
We’re sure Billy Ray Cyrus (dad to teen queen Miley) was just trying to be nice when he invited Britney Spears over for Thanksgiving dinner, but now he’s kinda screwed. Cuz girlfriend – being the wacky, spontaneous weirdo that she is – has said yes to his offer, and Britney will be shoving sweet potatoes in her mouth alongside 2007′s version of her former self. Weird right? Now that Brit has said yes to his invite of “Honey, you are welcome to a Nashville Thanksgiving at our house,” what is the Cyrus gang to do?
1. Keep the food (and the booze) coming. It’s not just Thanksgiving, but it’s Thanksgiving with a depressed, single 26-year old whose babies are with their dad on a holiday because their mom sucks at life. Make two green bean casseroles this year!
2. Lock up Miley’s closet. Britney is going to try to switch clothes with her immediately. To really prevent this, make sure no one wears a bikini to the dinner table.
3. On second thought, lock up Miley! Do you really want that kind of influence around her? [Images: Getty]
Ubiquitous producer Timbaland is set to be a father by the end of November, according to sources close to the track master. The New York Post is reporting that Tim is expecting a girl with a woman who works at his Mosley Music Group. Though the pair aren’t together, the Post reports Tim will be “very involved in the child’s upbringing.”
What could that possibly mean? We’ve got a few ideas:
1. Checks from “Aunt Missy” on birthday.
2. Justin Timberlake as godparent.
3. Nelly Furtado attends Show and Tell at school whenever the lil’ one wants.

Today we learned about the Hollywood Prayer Network, a group of people praying for celebrities and the entertainment industry. If you are a “Christian professional in Hollywood” you can request prayers from the group as well. We can think of one person in La La Land who might need a little love from above. Maybe God – or at least the Hollywood Prayer Network – will hear our plea.
Dear Person in the Sky Up Above,
Today Britney Spears was told by the judge in her custody case that she can not drive with her kids in her car anymore. So I pray she stops wearing sunglasses while she drives and that she puts an end to all her red-light running. Also if you could bless the feet of the photographers that she has run over, that would be swell. I’d also like to pray that Britney’s car becomes an airplane so she can fly all over Los Angeles to the various Starbucks and tanning salons she must frequent every day. Even better – please put a Starbucks and a tanning salon on a cloud so then she can fly her car-plane to them without running into the paparazzi. This will prevent all accidents from happening. If anyone can do it, it’s you God. I hope this isn’t too much to ask for, but a car that can fly is probably peanuts compare to like hurricanes and stuff. Also, can you fix my TiVo? Thanks. Laters!

Wow what a difference 5 months, a new hair color, and thousands of dollars worth of rehab can make! Lindsay Lohan snuck into jail yesterday to complete her required 1 day sentence. She got there at 10:30 AM and was out by 11:54 AM, making her stint in jail a whole lot shorter than Paris’! The sheriff’s spokesman said, “She was nice and cooperative. Everything was fine.? Fine like – her lips look bigger, her hair is a more strawberryish blonde, her eye makeup is poppin’, and she was totally rockin’ her new hot ‘I love scarves’ look. She just looks way more down with being behind bars, doesn’t she? Everything is definitely fine with LiLo. [Booking Photos]
Not to quote Fox News or anything, but this is one of those ‘we report, you decide’ kind of moments. What we’re reporting is this here video above, of the world’s greatest train wreck (sorry Britney), Amy Winehouse, performing in concert in Zurich on October 25th. She appears to be fiddling around with her beehive for a while when she’s supposed to be singing the Toots and the Maytals song “Monkey Man.” It then looks like she hides something in her sleeve, lifts her hand to her nose and does something that looks a lot like snorting. Give it a watch and let us know what you think – is she storing coke up in that massive beehive, or just some tissues for a stuffy nose? Given the fact that her tour manager just quit because he was supposedly getting a contact high (that showed up in his bloodstream) from all the heroin smoked on Winehouse’s tour bus, we are quick to assume the former.
John Mayer has discovered what the rest of the world has known for years: he is a douchebag. John recently took to the Internet to bone up on himself (a douchey thing to do in itself) and the results were of profound self-discovery: “I’m kind of a douchebag. I got a little sick of myself…I’m insufferable,” he reports.
Of course, admitting that you’re a douchebag is a wholly non-douchey thing to do: self-awareness and douchebaggery cannot exist side-by-side. And so, by admitting this, John Mayer is more or less no longer a douchebag. Curses! Foiled again. [TMZ.com]
