Memo to Jon Stewart

Dear Jon, I've been a fan for a long time. So has everybody... with good reason. You question authority, assumptions and unwitting public officials. And, I'm sorry, but you're cool and you hire cool people (see Corddry, Rob; Helms, Ed; Bee, Samantha; Hodgman, John; and my personal favorite Martin, Demetri). You quote the Simpsons and the President with equal ease. Maybe that's a bad example, but you get the point. You are a god to countless college students who just might vote in the next two elections, in part because of you. With that in mind, I'm a little bit concerned about this Oscar-hosting gig. I don't think I'm too far off in saying this could be the first step in the mainstreaming of Jon Stewart. There is precedent here: Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Martin, Billy Crystal. Two roads are diverging in a wood here, Jon. Pick the right road. Do...

I mean, come on... -- Jessica Alba is demanding Playboy pull issues of the magazine with a publicity shot of her on the cover. The pole-dancing actress ("Sin City") is concerned readers might be led to believe she appears naked inside. -- "Bullsh**!" Dave Navarro's response to rumors that Slash may be rejoining Guns n' Roses ahead of the rumored release of the band's -- well, Axl's...

About This Blog

Celebritology is a hobby almost all of us engage in -- consciously or not. Some unapologetically subscribe to People, Us and are regulars watchers of Entertainment Tonight, while others eschew all celeb-centric news, dismissing it as the worst by-product of our collective culture and any attention paid to the galaxy of stars as base voyeurism. But it is our culture and somewhere betwixt the two ends of the continuum are the stories to which we are all drawn -- in admiration or disdain: A royal wedding, a Michael Jackson trial, Tom Cruise's take on psychology or Sean Penn's Op-eds on the war in Iraq. You may worship them, you may despise them -- but we all have an opinion on them.
