Every day, Daniel Radcliffe finds a new way to break Rupert Grint's heart.

JSimp's "a little angry" about that Mayer interview; once she sounds out some of the bigger words, she's going to be really steamed.

LiLo's rehab was "like a vacation," in the "You know how it's a nice two week break and it's relaxing and all but you can't wait to get back to the job and really hit the ground running" sense of the word.

Maybe the Creationism Museum will take O.J.'s suit - we already know they'll believe anything.

"Steamy" Paris Hilton beer? Well, there's your problem right there.

Not surprising that Cohen's "Avatar" skit got cut: since they've nominated every single movie released in 2009, they need to make some time for the clips.

"Oscar broadcast to open with Neil Patrick Harris and Martin Short?" Take heart, Daniel Radcliffe: if they could be wrong about which of these two was gay, they can be wrong about you too.

"Tom Cruise spotted dining with Sumner Redstone again." Tom must be doing research for a zombie movie.

"Wife finds nude picture of manager on Wyclef Jean's cell phone." Weird, because most managers only take 15% off the top.

"Robert Pattinson rendered in clay." And he turns out to be a better actor...

Hey, Mo'Nique: Daniel Radcliffe's got hairy legs. I'm just sayin'.

Daniel Radcliffe insists he's not gay...And the Black Knight said it was just a flesh wound.

Water for Elephants? Sounds like someone has some bad bartering skills.

Loved the Ok Go video.

Why does the new Jen and Liz pick make me think "Cagney and Lacey?" Ladies, you could be solving crimes AND spilling the latest celeb gossip with a photo like this.

And, I guess I'll just say it: The family that tazes together stays together.

Loved the book Water for Elephants. Pretty disappointed that the movie's going to have Reese Witherspoon.

I love Shia LaBeouf news, just because it means I can say the related Simpsons quote. "He's not quite a jock; he's not quite a nerd! He's Shia LaBeouf!"

It'll be interesting to see how "Game of Thrones" plays out. I tried to read the book- many friends have told me the series is great- but I found it so depressing I couldn't get more than a third of the way through. Maybe it'll be easier to get through as a TV series.

Claiming rehab is "like a vacation" just shows what a whack job Lilo really is. Either that, or she went to Celebrity Rehab rather than real rehab.

So Brazil bans the Paris ad because "regulations don't permit a beer commercial to treat women as overtly sensual objects." It's a wonder they can sell beer in Brazil at all. Such a concept would shut down ALL the beer ads here. And cripple most other advertising.

"Osbournes returning to reality TV?" I thought they were just on hiatus. Kelly Osbourne rocked on the last season of DWTS.

Re "inglorious Basterds" vs "Avatar". At least Avatar marketed itself as a fantasy.

Naomi Campbell reminds me of the Brad Paisley song "Celebrity." In fact the whole blog reminds me of that song.

Love OK Go. Thanks for the clip

One of these days I'd love to read a story where one of Naomi Campbell's punching bag victims smacks her right back...

"Rehab was 'like a vacation,' says Lindsay Lohan..."

- I'm pretty sure the first "a" in vacation should be an "o."

The more she speaks, the more I like Mo'nique...

kvs09, I'm getting more of a "Laverne & Shirley" vibe from the JeLi photo.

Good thing Jermaine's son didn't get that gun, otherwise we'd be hearing dad singing, "Let's get serious, let's g-- AAAAAAAAA!"

Does Tori have to pay to take the Candy manor tour? Or can she just slip in unnoticed and stay for weeks before she's discovered?

Hey, leave Harry Potter alone; I'm sure Radcliffe's just being polite and answering the question all 1,000 times it's thrown at him. Denying you're gay every time you're asked doesn't mean the volume of denials changes the reality. Just sayin'.

Does LiLo have an Off switch? Honestly, she is just an endless font of stupid sound bites. No wonder the paparazzi follow her everywhere.

Mo'Nique, honey, I don't care if your legs are hairy or not. But TMI babe. And promise me you'll wear a long dress to the Oscars.

Tiger had a "week" of family counseling? My God, what can you possibly talk about for that long? You'd need a conference agenda:

7:00: Yoga (to focus on your cheating core)
8:00: Breakfast (humble pie, coffee)
9:00: Breakout 1: "Golf club good, Nightclub bad," etc.

I sense a marketing opportunity for San Francisco's Anchor Steam Beer.

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" on ice? Kurt Cobain is doing a triple axel in his grave.

TMiami, I'm with you; that clip scared me too. Next we'll be seeing pairs skating to "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," etc.

Oh come on td, Paradise by the Dashboard Light was made for the ice. Imagine Johnny Weir skating to it.

Maybe they could bring Tanya back for the female part.
