Good Morning, Adam Levine!

And wasn't Johnny Weir already out?

The Star magazine shot of "Angelina" looks like a doctored photo of Courtney Love.

Maroon 5's Adam Levine poses nude & Jaime Pressly's mug shot... Next time, let's see if we can't switch those names around, mkay? Thanks.


"Nick Lachey never pretended to be his own assistant." Of course not. He's barely qualified to do whatever it is he already does.


Johnny Weir announces that he's gay with every single motion he makes.


The dreaded Internet death hoax: at next year's Oscars, they're going to have an "In Memoriam" reel and a "Not Really" one right after it.


"Angelina Jolie headed for rehab" and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association already plans to nominate her stint there for "Best Performance By An Actress In A Musical Or Comedy" for 2011.


You have to admit that Knoxville, Samberg and whatshisname are waaaaay more stoogier than Carrey, del Toro and Penn.


Bono & Edge going to every performance of "SM:TOTD" just mixes up the demographics a bit: now, only half of the audience is going there in the hopes of seeing someone fall thirty feet into an orchestra pit. (And five percent actually hope it's Bono.)

What do you mean, Eminem *finally* makes another movie? Were we all supposed to be breathlessly awaiting a follow-up to 8 Mile?

Because Johnny Weir's skating to Lady Gaga wasn't enough of an announcement.

When did Jamie Pressley turn into Marg Helgenberger?

GOOD MORNING Adam Levine indeed!! :-).... That's as close as I could come to a drooling emoticon.

I didn't realize Johnny Weir was still IN the sequined closet.

"Aretha Franklin tells Jet magazine that her health problem has been 'resolved'" -- Her exact quote began "R-E-S-O-L-V-E..."

"Adam Levine poses nude in totally NSFW prostate cancer awareness ad" -- He does realize that prostates aren't exactly viewable external organs right? Or is that why it's totally NSFW and he's actually, er, different than other men?

"Johnny Weir announces that he's gay" -- The jury's still out on pretty and witty, though.

"Bono, The Edge will attend all 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' shows" -- And be prepared to step in with a U2 song every time they have to stop the show to fix some other technical detail. Does that count toward the year-end highest-grossing tour tally?

Adam Levine...**purrrrrrrrrr**

Thank you, Jen and Liz, for that tasty Adam Levine treat this morning. Yum!

Aretha Franklin, I pray that you are right. Friday love to the Queen of Soul!

Suggestion to Bono, Ms. Taymor and company regarding SM:TOTD (via my cubemate saw the show last night): sell the concept and maybe some of the music to Cirque du Soleil. If you absolutely must keep it going, slash and burn at least half of Act II.

Angelina headed to rehab, claims Star magazine? The Enquirer broke that two weeks ago! So either it's true, or Star magazine is losing its creative spark.

"Keenen Ivory Wayans is the latest victim of the dreaded Internet death hoax." In this case, I think the public is the victim.

Speaking of Mr. Levine, since when does nude = being covered by hands or a purse or whatever?!?

No, he doesn't have any clothes on but he's covered up so it's technically not a nude picture, same for the January Jones covered by a purse pic. She may be nude but it's not a nude pic.

A GREAT pic yes, nude no.

Though by now I've learned that when mainstream ads or magazines say "here's a nude pic of" they mean "here's a pic of some star who may be nude UNDERNEATH this ocelot/Versace bag/towel/hands/artfully placed vegetables/etc."

If Adam Levine is really posing to encourage the fight against prostate cancer, shouldn't the model be giving him a digital rectal exam?

As for those who think Adam has a hot body, I guess it proves that, regardless of your looks, somebody, somewhere thinks you're hot.

Aretha, I don't like breaking the news to you, but the your health problem will likely be resolved in the same way that the Swayze's health problem was resolved.

So Eminem is gong to star in "Random Acts of Violence." I wonder who will play Ken Caniff.

"...now Johnny Knoxville, Andy Samberg and Australian comic Shane Jacobson could be your new stooges."
Liz, what do you mean "could be"? It's their everyday condition, not their movie role.

The other side of this coin is when your phone beeps and the screen says, "Incoming message from Brett Favre."

Ummmm ... did anyone actually think Johnny Weir was NOT gay?

Posted by: Californian11 | January 7, 2011 2:04 PM | Report abuse

Finally, someone has the courage to call Hef what he really is, namely a pimp. "Last Call at the Bunny Roundup":

Johnny Weir gay? I'm SHOCKED, I tell you, SHOCKED.

Angelina collapsing doesn't necessarily mean she's on drugs--we all know the woman DOESN'T EAT. Add exhaustion and bingo, instant fainting spell. Which isn't to say I'd be totally surprised to hear she IS taking drugs. She's looking disturbingly like she did in Gia...

Thanks for that post, Nosy. Nice to see a guy as skeeved out by Hef as I've been for years, and one willing to call out the fawning media.
