Heidi might well have a great voice, but who could tell? All you can hear in that song is overproduced synthesizer and drum machine with a faint voice in the background. In her defense, it has worked for Britney, so I guess you don't need to be able to sing to succeed.

The video looks like a SNL parody of Let's Get Physical.

Michael Bolton...that no talent a$$-clown

Not only should Kid Rock stay out of politics, but he should also stay out of Waffle Houses.

Michael Lohan and a 24 year old, well at least she's older than Lindsey, which makes him just a little less skeevy than Hulk Hogan dating his daughter's best friend.

Diddy is flying American Airlines now, as if I needed another reason not to fly American.

Not touching the Kay McConaughey item with a 10 ft pole. Well, ok, I really hope his last words were 'Alright, alright, alright...'

Keith Urban suffers from a slipped disc, well at least you can't say he suffers from talent.

Slow day today. I can't think of anything witty to comment on. Xcept, how does one get a black eye from a cabinet? I'm trying to picture it and I can maybe see a cut to your temple but that black eye is coming from the "nose" side. If it fell and hit her in the temple... would it not be worse on the "ear" side of her face? I dunno, I'm no Dr. but it's strange...

Kid Rock is right. Why do we care if Anne Hathaway (I love her but..) likes Obama or Daddy Yankee likes McCain? Both of them (McCain/Obama) stink so what's the big deal?

"Nicolette Sheridan, Michael Bolton End Engagement" -- I didn't even know they were together (do I have to turn in my Celebritology credentials?).

I thought Nicolette Sheridan was with Harry Hamlin. Or at least I remember the two of them on some late-night talk show years ago where she giggled a lot while pawing him, and he couldn't put together one coherent sentence.

That was after Harry Hamlin was with Ursula Andress. So clearly what I know is very dated information. I'm so ashamed.

If I was in my early 20's and I thought I had the ability to become a semi-famous entertainer...why o why would I turn to my 20-something boyfriend as THE person who could make that happen? I mean, bring him along for the ride by all means, but WHY would you see another 20-something with NO experience as your best way into the business? Conversely, if you were a 20-something dude who saw his girlfriend as a perfect meal ticket...why would you try to mess that up for yourself? That is your INVESTMENT man...stay close enough to reap the benefits of her "fame" but get that lady to someone who can DO something with what little she's got. Heidi might have little or nothing to work with, but a manager with even a little experience would a) not let her do a music video like the one above and b) not let said video get released in a 10 minute, semi-uncut version. They would work hard to make sure that video didn't, you know, suck.

Haley Joel Osment -- first of all, it's nice to know he wasn't arrested, which is what I usually expect to see here about our younger stars -- is going to be in a Broadway play with John Leguizamo and Cedric the Entertainer?

This gives me a Sandy Cheeks moment; to paraphrase her original SpongeBob quote: "This is wrong, this is wrong, this is WRONGWRONGWRONG."

Haley, John, and Cedric together just gives me this weird "I See Dead Wong Foo on the Johnson Family Vacation" vibe.

actually, the issue here with people lke Paris Hilton and Speidi and all the others even existing is TV. We have a billion channels trying to fill space 24/7 and so they just generate and endless stream of celinedion and slap it up there. It costs next to nothing to produce "reality" shows, even thought they are essentially scripted, so the companies just keep created more and more vile BS. All that money going to worthless people and wasting time. It is depressing (also why we do not have a TV in our house--not worth the time suck). Remember when there were four or so channels on regular tv and then a few on UHF?

I liked Haley Joel Osment (girl's name or not) better after learning that he drove a six-year-old Saturn, even if he did wreck it while driving baked. Either he's not a self-obsessed tool, or his parents have the rare foresight to keep his piggy bank locked up. Or, they spent it all themselves, and all he could afford on his Second Hand Lions paycheck was the Saturn. I suppose that's possible.

Two great Hollywood comments in one day. Whoda thunk it? Well, we knew John Waters has a brain. But, Kid Rock too? Wow. I think the earth tilted on its access.

My reaction when I heard that Nicolette Sheridan and MIchael Bolton split up -- haven't they been engaged a million years at this point. I was only slightly off. Apparently, they were engaged in the 1990s, then split for her Harry Hamlin phase. They got back together in 2005 and then just split again. Folks, give it up. You had long engagements both times and never made it to the alter, clearly it is not meant to be.

Finally, you think the attack comments here are bad, you should have read the Weather Gang blog yesterday in the post about Hurricane Gustav. Eeeek. In a WEATHER BLOG. Since it is August and the schools have all gone back, my best bet is some low level federal employee wasting taxpayer dollars while the bosses are on vacation.

This kind of crap occurs in youth baseball all the time. When I was coaching I had an ace pitcher that few kids could hit as well. In our league there were rules not only about how many innings a kid could pitch in a game but also mandatory rest days between games. Once a kid pitched 3 innings in a game, he was required to rest for at least 2 days before pitching again. This usually wasn't a problem because regular game days were Wednesday and Saturday. League rules also specified that makeup games be announced at least 3 days in advance.

So my team was locked neck and neck for the championship with a team that happened to include the son of the league administrator. The last game we were scheduled to play against each other and would decide the final league standings was to be played on a Wednesday. We had another game scheduled for the following Saturday but the outcome would not effect the standings and that was to be our final game of the season. However, the Wednesday game with our first place competitor was rained out and a makeup was to be rescheduled for some time in the following week. We assumed going in to the final regular game on Saturday that we would play the makeup game on the following Wednesday, our normal game day. So I pitch my ace on Saturday and immediately after the game (a win of course), the leage administrator comes to me and says the opposing team coach is going to be out of town all next week. He doesn't want to miss the game and the league can't delay the makeup game for yet another week so we will have to play tomorrow - Sunday.

I immediately pull the league rule book out of my bag and point to the paragraph that says makeup games will be announced 3 days in advance. I get this silly "Well, it can't be helped. Try to be flexible. Little Bobby Jones wants his dad to see him play for the championship, blah blah blah...." response. I tell him we won't play and he says fine, you'll forfeit. The league wasn't a nationally or regionally sanctioned one so I had no avenue of appeal. Nor did I have any pitchers for the next day because both my best pitchers had pitched 3 innings on Saturday and therefore could not pitch on Sunday. I tried making the case that if he was going to suspend the 3-day rule for make up games, then the pitching rules should be suspended as well. Of course he refused, citing the safety and health of the players (unfortunatley I had to agree).

So we got spanked on the following day and lost the championship to his son's team (talk about a conflict of interest). And guess who I saw wondering around town throughout the next week, including Wednesday? Yes, the opposing team's supposedly "out of town" coach.

Nothing surprises me in youth sports.

Random thoughts on the gallery of Celebrity Conventioneers:

Photo 4: Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) looks like Roseanne Barr. The idea of her hugging Jimmy Jam sent shivers up my spine and the horrific idea of a Roseanne cover of "Nasty" and other Janet Jackson hits.

Photo 10: Well, if Anne Hathaway was burned by a politician, perhaps it was Ted Kennedy. While she says, "I know he's had a tough time with his health lately and my heart goes out to him along with my best wishes and my prayers." she doesn't say she likes him or anything. Hmm.

Perhaps because they are all trying to act like adutls and do what is best for the child here? Unusual concept with celebrities, I know. However, that seems to be the case here.

Tim Gunn is never shy about his opinions on Project Runway — calling a dress a “pterodactyl out of a gay Jurassic Park” isn’t exactly holding back. And when PEOPLE talked to the debonair fashion expert at the Tide and Downy Total Care Launch Party, he expressed his disapproval of Katie Holmes’s recent penchant for fall’s new baggy jeans. “I have to say, Katie Holmes has become so much more sophisticated in so many ways, but I think she’s in a dip right now. I can’t explain it.” Gunn actually sees the adaptation of the new look as a move back towards her younger look, saying “She ascended from this tomboyish waif look to an incredible sexy sophisticate. We realize how much style she’s capable of. I don’t get it.” But for those of us who are digging Katie’s baggy look (also spotted on Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston), Gunn does give us hope. “With the right shape, it can work very well.”
