From the caption on the pic, "the couple wasn't photographed together. "

Yep. Splitsville in 5...4...3...2...

Brad and Angie "We are skipping Awards Season." Translation "We are skipping anything that gets network coverage."

I see the Jackson family has found another meal ticket. For all his many, myriad, legion of, faults, Michael did do his weird best to keep his kids out of the spotlight.

Pourquoi the quotes around "daddy" Liz. For all intents and purposes, he was their father. That is who they know as dad. Let's not add to the kids' grief by snide comments. Adults yes, kids no.

Mr. P and I agreed that if one closed one's eyes and simply listened to Lady Gaga last night (especially on her duet with Elton John), she has an excellent voice.

Missed about an hour of the Grammy broadcast following the opening number, so missed Gaga's acceptance speech. Did she remember to thank her waxer? Yikes!

Do you realize that if Gaga were to go out in public wearing, say, a twinset plus tailored slacks and sensible shoes, a dab of natural-looking makeup and a simply-styled brown wig, NO ONE outside her family would ever recognize her?


Re Colbert's tribute to the 48-year-old Scottish cat-lady in sensible shoes who saved the recording industry: You might well wonder why SuBo wasn't nominated for a Grammy. Explanation: her album was released after the deadline for the 2010 awards. So it'll be eligible next year.


Taylor Swift butcher's Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon"

And Queen Liz butchers punctuation.


What's wrong with Angelina's left forearm? Ick. Nast.

"Beyonce picks up six Grammys." Well, then, I guess I *am* a let her finish.


Word, Julia Roberts, word.


"The Situation" Eau de Cologne: What Newark would smell like if it were painted in Aqua Velva.


"Drew Barrymore and Justin Long not engaged, says rep." And won't be until she resolves that thing between her and John Hodgman.


Britney Spears was dressed like she wanted the conservatorship extended.

IIRC, The tattoo on AJ's arm is the latitude and longitude of each of her kid's birthplace. Someday she is going to need a longer arm.

For a second there I thought Taylor Swift was covering Chris Brown.

True, jez (although I can't recall whether the baby's face was covered, not that it excuses such recklessness). But otherwise, MJ generally did better than a lot of other celeb parents at protecting his children's privacy.

Dorkus, I think that on Angie's forearm (i.e., lower arm) those are just grossly ropy veins.

Taylor's performance was dreadful, which is a shame because she's so cute and I like her studio songs. Pink was the best, what a show!

MJ was unconventional in the way he protected his kids, and he clearly did not want them exposed the way they are now. That said, they seem like really nice kids, well spoken and boy are they cute.

Daddy should only be in quotes when used as a figure of speech, as in "Hooz yer 'Daddy'?"

Durn! Now I will have to "watch" the show on Hulu. I can't believe there is a reason to hate Taylor Swift!

I did catch Pink's trapeze act, which I thought was awesome.

Coincidentally,the situation is that New Jersey is where many of the chemical companies which come up with fragrances (and tastes) are located.

I think Brad's next role is going to be Colonel Sanders.

I totally forgot the Grammy's were last night. reddragon, guess I'll have to Hulu with you.

I did catch a few minutes of SNL with Jon Hamm, Liz. Immediately thought of you. There was also a pretty funny Snooki impersonator on the Weekend update. Looked more like John Belushi, though.

Brittney assumed wrongly that just because Lady Gaga was there, no one would notice she forgot pants again.

Lessee..."The Situation" works out, sprays on tan, and lives on the Jersey Shore. So I'm thinking his eau du should smell like sweat, workout-machine lubricating oil, spray-on tanner (which smells a bit like puke,)cigarettes, rotting fish, and fuel oil.

So I'm thinking...if your neck is red, stick with "McGraw." If your neck is orange, switch to "The Situation."

Posted by: mdreader01 | February 1, 2010 10:47 AM | Report abuse

hodie, the Snooki impersonator is Bobby Moynihan, and yes, he's pretty funny (especially with his chest hair).

Brad Pitt = The Colonel. LOL!


BTW, did anyone else wonder if Beyoncé's dress last night was a repurposing of Mariah's from the Golden Globes, cut off short, then a whole bunch of beer and soda can pop-tops sewn on? Nominee for Fashion Victim of the Year.

I think Angelina's arm suffers from the same gross too-skinny-overdeveloped-vein thing that Madonna inflicts on us.

Rip Torn, I'd like you to meet Randy Quaid. Randy, this is Rip. You guys will get along fabulously!

Posted by: hodie | February 1, 2010 12:54 PM | Report abuse

Uhhh, was some media event broadcast last night? More important, were strippers involved?

Dorkus, I think that you should make a play for Charlize Theron.

Today's Crime watch was literally Ripped from the headline. Or maybe it was Torn.

Julia Roberts, Chris Rock would advise you NOT to take off your top in public. According to CR, those are private **tties, because you're over 30. On the other hand, Chris Rock would encourage Beyonce to take off her top in public, because, according to him, those are public **tties.

I bet that "Situation" cologne sells for $10 a gallon, and that there are some guys in this world (whose elders refer to them as "yoots") who will bathe in it.

Zac Efron taking over Spider-Man franchise? Well, there is that stalled Broadway musical production.

Rip Torn sounds like he has pickled what few brain cells remain in his head. Sad.

Zac Efron to take over the role of Spiderman? Does he know Spiderman wears a mask that covers the whole head including his hair?

New reality show, Celebrity Felons, starring Rip Torn, Randy & Mrs. Quaid, Robert Blake, Phil Spector, Roman.....

Nosy, spinoff for over-the-hill sports figures. Tonya Harding, Pete Rose, etc.

reddragon, we've got a slew of athletes who've used performance-enhancing durgs. Heck, we could start a whole new league just for them (sort of like that Hungarian beauty contest where having undergone surgical enhancement was a requirement).

drugs, not durgs.

Bawlmer's Hot Unsubstantiated Rumor Roundup:

So if Brangelina split, does that mean Pitt and Clooney are going to be the next Hollywood power couple? Because I would TOTALLY dig that.

Also I heard Taylor Swift and John Mayer are maybe an item? For her sake, I hope not, that fellow is nothing but trouble (well, trouble and ick nast).

They'd have to compete with Damon and Affleck.

Nosy, maybe they can have a dance-off slash drinking contest.

byoo, sounds like a title! And for those caught but not yet tried, "I'm a Celebrity, I Don't Have to Go to Jail!"

From the caption - Brangelina were not photographed together, but the Washington Post Express has a photo of them that at least implies that they are at the grammies.
