John Mayer had to quit Twitter. Those 3.7 million followers gave him a million phone numbers and now he's got to work his way through 'em.


Justin Bieber is "kind of looking," "kind of trying to stay single." Let's not forget, "kind of wondering why it hurts when he pees."


You say "mixed reviews," Chelsea Handler says, "Without me, only 11.399886 million people watch Lady Gaga."


300 Oprah fans get trips to Australia, making the locals wistful for the good old days when it was just a penal colony.

Yesterday Chelsea was universally panned and now mixed reviews? Who suddenly liked her?

"Oprah kicked off the final season of her daytime show by giving an audience of 300 superfans trips to Australia" -- I won't give away the prize for her very last show, but let's just say ide-ray on the ace-spay uttle-shay.

"John Mayer closed his Twitter account" -- Didn't Miley or someone do the same thing then turn it back on a day later? He'll be back. They always are. (Darnit.)

"Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher welcome baby No. 2, we're just not sure when" -- Ah, another Brat, er, I mean, Borat. Welcome.

byoolin gives the Bieber credit for alot more activity than I do. I think his mother watches him too closely.

Once again, I am going to have to petition the American Idol producers to remove the chairs for the judges. Jlo will make a fine upstanding judge.

Darn, I was hoping John Mayer would never speak up again, period.

If so, look for an episode of the "Big Bang Theory" to have the guys and Penny in the audience.

Man, John Mayer is UGLY!

--hello, from the shallow end of the pool.

When did John Mayer become a Vulcan? Is he the love child of Mr. Spock and -- well, I can't think who right now. Trying to think of a woman old enough who has the same slack-jawed look, less-than-scrupulous approach to love affairs, and a tendency to put her foot in her mouth.
