If so many women want Angelina's lips, Katie's eyes and Jessica's body, why do so many of them end up looking like an extra-cougary Janice Dickinson?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Byoolin, that was not the least bit funny. Most of your postings are entertaining, but you stepped over the line with this one.

Angelina has the grossest lips I've ever seen.

Hey, what's wrong with Janice Dickinson? Besides all of the obvious stuff.

And ye gods, they've anointed Al. He's turning into environmentalism's Tom Cruise, you know.

I really hope Amy stays in rehab this time.

Thanks to Stephen for stating another thing we shouldn't take advice from Tom Cruise on.

-I don't think Angelina's full lips are gross,but it is funny that thousands of women are born with full lips and no one makes a fuss over them.

-Booylin, the 2nd post about Britney:not cool.

-Why can't Scarlett Johansson just be happy having a film career and dating Ryan Reynold. No, she just have to try and be a popstar. Damn her.

If you watch at the E! channel shows on Angelina her lips were always full, even in her childhood pics.

Why do so many actors think they're cut out for the world of music? Probably because they have those extra big, party-sized showers in their 800 square foot bathrooms, and the acoustics are AWESOME.

The trouble that Britney is that in order do come up with something so beyond the pale that it reaches into satire is tough to do.

Speaking Spearses (Spearsi?), new episodes of Zoey 101 begin on Sunday. Try this new party game: After every line uttered by Jamie Lynn, interject "because I'm pregnant" Rocky Horror style. It makes the meta-humor that much more hilarious.

And is wrong for me to say that even the dorky girls on that show are mighty hawt? I thought so. Just don't tell my parole officer I said so.

Yello, it's TV. Like the dorks are ever really dorks.

I'm going to guess Bono was kidding around a bit. He does have a wonderfully self-effacing sense of humor about most things.

I recently read an article about Scarlett Johansson visiting the troops as part of a USO tour and have to admit having a tiny girl crush on her now.

My mom is an elementary school teacher, and I think if someone behaving erratically showed up at her school wanting to pick up some random kids he or she didn't know, the police would be called immediately.

Speaking as someone with naturally full lips, I'm relieved that lip injections is something that I won't ever have to consider.

My step-mother worked as a nurse for a plastic surgeon, and she says that in one procedure, the doctor makes a small slit on either side of the upper lip, and then carves out a "channel", into which re-hydrated cadaver skin is inserted.

Ladies should learn to love their original lip size, rather than have skid-row inhabitant's leather inserted into their faces.

If Angelina is the new Mia Farrow, does that mean that in 20 years, Brad will do a Woody Allen?

Angie, better stick to adopting boys, just to be on the safe side.

EricS (are all your pets called Eric?), Bono was definitely kidding - he also said, "[O]il has been very good for me - those convoys of articulated lorries, petrochemical products, hair gel."

What's wrong with that? You guys are too sensitive.

"Scarlett Johansson to release debut album in May..."

What is it that makes these self-absorbed twits think that since they are (modestly) successful in one artistic realm, that their success will naturally translate into any other creative field they choose? Don't they realize that the skill set for acting is nothing at all like the skill set necessary for singing (or photography, writing, etc.)?

Or is it all just a lark, a momentary diversion with which they fight boredom and continue to cultivate their reputation as a "sensitive artiste?"

In Fairfax County, there are lists that you give the school of who has permission to pick your kids up if you can't and you have to show id to make sure you match the list. I'm thinking the attorney's kids' school now has a huge picture of Britney with a NO symbol on it.

My god! Next thing we will have truck drivers trying to be computer programmers, waitresses training to be nurses. Stick with the job you started with and never change!!

My hopes are not high for the album but I'll listen to it. She's probably low on cash and needs a second job. It's the recession.

Someone above wondered why, if singers can be actors, why actors can't be singers.

I think what it comes down to is, ultimately, it's up to someone else whether, say, Justin Timberlake is cast in a movie. The singer may say he's interested in acting in a movie, but somebody else, be it the director, writer, producer, casting agent, etc., has to make the decision to cast him.

Now let's say an actor wants to record an album. She can do it if she wants, as long as she has a few songs and the money to pay for musicians, producers and studio time. Yes, someone else would have to decide whether to release the album on a label, but the actor could decide to self-release it.

Basically, all that's standing in the way of the actor and that album is whether she's arrogant enough to think that we are all waiting breathlessly for her musical stylings. I think that's why people don't take it so well when, say, Scarlett Johansson or Lindsey Lohan release albums of their warblings.

In the movie where she does the karaoke bit she really sounds like a karaoke singer. On stage with The Jesus and Mary Chain she actually doesn't sound bad at all. Very soft and sweet. Not sure how her sound will translate to Tom Waits. Something is bound to be lost in translation. hehe...

I think all plastic surgeons except those who do genuine, necessary reconstructive surgery (e.g., burn victims, disfigurement, etc.) should be immediately closed down and replaced with therapists to help people accept themselves. This "perfection" culture is sick -- I can think of no better example than Demi Moore's recent photo spread. Yeah, she looks perfect, but it's all fake. I much preferred Jamie Lee Curtis' photo a few years ago, which showed her real, genuine, yeah-I've-had-kids-and-I-age body.

my apologies for additional posts, but i need to make 2 ammendments to my above list:
1. please read the Joe Simpson line with a comma b/w "you" and "Joe"
2. the Eddie Murphy entry was inspired by such ground-breaking classics as "My girl likes to party all the time. Party all the time. Party all the time." However, his faux SNL-hawked album of Buckwheat Sings does not apply. "Wookin punub in all da wong pwaces" is golden.

And of course, who can forget David Hasselhoff?

I'll see your William Shatner and raise Leonard Nimoy (singing "MacArthur Park", even.)

And let's not forget Lorne Greene singing about a bad cowboy on the single "Ringo."

And let's not forget Ringo, either, walking of Regis & Kelly because they wouldn't let him do the 45-minute-long version of "Back Off Boogaloo."

Californian, I was with you right up until you described Jamie Lee Curtis as having an "I've had kids...body." JLC has a body appropriate to her age, but she never had kids and, I don't know, it seems a little catty to suggest that her body looks as though she has. (I'm hearing a grown-up Heather saying, "Well, with those stretch marks and that sagginess, of course I assumed she'd been pregnant many, many times.)

According to Wikipedia:
"Curtis married actor Christopher Guest on December 18, 1984, becoming Lady Haden-Guest when her husband inherited the Barony of Haden-Guest in 1996, upon the death of his father. The couple have two adopted children, Anne Haden Guest (born 1986) and Thomas Haden Guest (born 1996)."

Mea culpa. I didn't mean Jamie Lee Curtis' body was saggy or unattractive AT ALL. I just meant she looked real and normal and healthy, and that photo was a much-needed reality check on an unhealthy ideal of so-called "perfection".

Don't date Jessica Simpson. Don't even LOOK at Jessica Simpson. If you do, she will assume you are her soul mate for life and her lawyers will beat you down if you try to break up with her. Hyperbole? Well. . .she's the first bimbo I've read about who sicced her lawyers on what everyone knows is a gossip magazine that merely suggested via a "source" that Tony Romo wanted to dump her sorry rear end. I honestly would NOT put it past her to sue for damages or breach of contract if he did break up with her. Nick Lachey and John Mayer are probably thanking their lucky stars they got away from her before she went postal like this. It will not surprise me if on down the road she has a Britney or Amy-Winehouse-style meltdown. I'm popping popcorn right now to watch the trainwreck!
