Jennifer Lopez threatened Ricky Gervais backstage at Globes; Bradley Cooper's dad passes away

By Liz Kelly

Jennifer Lopez says she threatened Ricky Gervais backstage at the Golden Globes in the hopes of averting any jokes directed at her or husband Marc Anthony.

Lucky for J.Lo, her new single "On the Floor" didn't drop until Tuesday:

More morning mix -- including why Justin Timberlake missed the Globes and which former "American Idol" contestant isn't homeless -- after the jump...

Celebrity Beat: Why did Justin Timberlake miss the Globes? He's on the set of his new movie, "Now"... Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez penning father-son memoir (hey, what about Charlie?)... Bradley Cooper's father, 71, dead after a long illness... Laura Linney returning to Broadway after father's death... Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire to headline Coachella Festival... Motley Crue's Vince Neil gets two-week jail sentence for DUI... Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr release the first photo of new baby boy, Flynn... Halle Berry ex Gabriel Aubry files paternity petition for baby Nahla... Dr. Drew Pinsky hospitalized with bacterial infection... Lil' Wayne victim of Twitter hacker... For some reason, Winona Ryder wore a dress at least two sizes too small for an interview on British TV.

Video: Betty White drinks vodka with David Letterman...

Rumor Mill: Rep denies that former "American Idol" contestant Alex Lambert is homeless... Paul Giamatti demands $5 from fans for pix of himself with Golden Globe.

Bonus: 25 must-have items if you want to be Justin Bieber's biggest fan.

Don't people ever say the baby's name out loud? Flynnblooom? Really?

Charlie Sheen answers your "hey, what about Charlie?" question: "Writing a memoir with my dad and brother is not the kind of Devil's Three-Way I'd ever participate in. Now, can I get you something to drink, Liz Kelly, or a little toot, maybe?"

Orlando & Miranda, did you even for a second consider the life in store for a boy named "Flynn Kerr-Bloom"?

"Betty White drinks vodka with David Letterman." This is how it started with that staffer he was bangin'.

"Rep denies that former "American Idol" contestant Alex Lambert is homeless." I'd always assumed, based on those first rounds, that *all* of their contestants were.

Paul Giamatti: Jesus Chr!st, "Flynn Kerr-Bloom"?

Top 5 must-have items if you want to be Justin Bieber's biggest fan:
5: The water bottle that bounced off his head.
4: Autographed receipt of haircut from First Choice Haircutters, Stratford, Ontario
3: Shoes worn by Justin to Golden Globes
2: Lock of his hair.
1: His index finger, beginning at the 2nd knuckle.

PfffhahahahaHAAAA. Oh, J.Lo. It's so cute to watch you try to be relevant.

JLo -- 1) you probably made him more likely to go after you since, now, he had, you know, heard of you and 2) you are not that frightening.

And this week's winner of the keeping it classy award: Gabriel Aubry. You know your kid will be old enough to find out you did this someday. But then again, no one would be talking about you if you didn't do stuff like this. Way to exploit your kid for attention.

Gervais is such a jerk. Glad someone brought him down a peg, even if it was J.Lo.

Here's hoping little Flynn has a decent middle name. He's gonna need it. And he weighted in at 9lb 12oz and Mom didn't have any pain meds?!? Proof that supermodels are *not* like you and me.

It could have been worse. Orlando and Miranda could have had a girl named Rose, who later in life would drop the second part of her hyphenated surname. Then the Bloom would be off the Rose.

Sas, there's still a chance that could happen. We'll just have to wait a bit. Based on biological and legal considerations, we could have a payoff on your joke in - hmm, let's see, carry the 1, uh, nineteen years, give or take. (Because it's you, I'm willing to wait.)

pjohn, how did you measure the distance between those pegs - with a micrometer?

If Ricky Gervais was a pirate, a JLo took him down a peg, would it be the case that Ricky wouldn't have a leg to stand on?

Yeah, I know.

And Heather Mills got her leg cut out from under her on DWTS.

Re Winona Ryder - the smaller sizes are easier to shoplift.

What did JLo threated Gervais with, anyway? That Skeletor would use his mystical powers against him so that he can never host another awards show again?

Gervais nailed the hollywood liberal left wing loons and they couldn't take it.They can put it out but they can't take it in return.Good for Gervails.

I love Ricky Gervais!! Those Hollywood actors slay me. They make millions of dollars to act, I repeat, to act. Surely they can take a little truth telling in the form of a joke (am I the only one who remembers Don Rickles). I thought Gervais was hilarious.

fcs25, glad to see you are defending the socialist atheist who took on those meanie Hollywood lefties like that.

I keep thinking that child's name is sort of like what Tinkerbell might have named her child, if she were to have one:

flinkerbloom - said all like one word kinda fast...

For those still interested in hashing out their feelings on Ricky Gervais and the actors they hate but feel compelled to watch get awarded a meaningless award, there are 72.5 posts from the past several days that you can post in. I am personally ready to move on from the non-issue and focus on what's really important, like how Betty drinks her vodka.

Try not to laugh too hard at this.

"Conservatives rally behind Ricky Gervais":

"British comedian Ricky Gervais is the new darling of political conservatives thanks to the fusillade of insults he directed at the aghast celebrities attending the weekend's Golden Globe Awards..."

So Paul Giamatti charges you $5 to snap his picture. So now we not only know what he is. We also know his price.

Up yours sideways, Paul.

The clothes or the implants?

Making jokes about Skeletor Anthony would be like shooting fish in a barrel.

"Gervais nailed the hollywood liberal left wing loons and they couldn't take it.They can put it out but they can't take it in return."

Sounds like the conservatives to me.
