Quote of the Day

"I actually think going to university will make me a better actress. The experience of living like that, working to deadlines, living with other students. It's all the things I want. There are actresses who don't know about things like doing their own laundry and getting a bus. I'm not going to be like that."

-Emma Watson

Scott MacIntyre Sent Home on Idol

Scott MacIntyre, a blind pianist and singer, was sent home on American Idol Wednesday night. 

Though we have a lot of props for MacIntyre (the dude played guitar and participated in several dancey group numbers!), we must admit, it was time to say goodbye.

"I'm going to miss the camaraderie," said MacIntyre in an exit interview.

"I'm going to miss how we all make fun of each other before the show starts, I'm going to miss having dinner when people leave and wishing them well. Even though we're competing, we have so much fun even the second before we walk on stage, it's amazing."

Quote of the Day

"The simple answer is that when I decided to write and record again under the name the Smashing Pumpkins in 2005, I committed myself 100 pct. 100pct of my mind-body-soul to come back and make the band really be great again, and I feel in tune to SP in a way I haven't felt in tune probably since 1995 or 1996. As they say in No Limit Poker, I'm 'all in'.

-Billy Corgan finally speaking out about being the only original member in the Smashing Pumpkins

Britney's Message to Vancouver

The latest episode of word vomit from Britney Spears happened Wednesday night at the pop starlet's Vancouver show.

According to reports, Spears walked offstage about halfway through the show, due to smoky air and ventilation problems at the venue. An announcement over the loudspeaker told attendees, "It's become uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers, including Ms. Spears. The show will resume as soon as the air around the stage is clear."

Britney got back on stage after about 30 minutes, and closed the show out with this lovely farewell:

"Thank you, Vancouver. You guys have a wonderful night. Drive safe, don't smoke weed. Rock out with your cocks out."


Check out the nonsense above.

Katy Covers Queen at New York Show

"Queen taught me everything I know," said a rambunctious Katy Perry, before diving into a cover of the rock legends' "Don't Stop Me Now" at New York's Irving Plaza Tuesday night.

The pop starlet, 24, was on night two of her three-night Irving residency and plowed through almost two hours of hits, including "Hot 'N Cold," "Ur So Gay," "I Kissed A Girl" and a pretty rocking cover of The Outfield's "Use Your Love," which she promptly smashed her guitar after playing.

"Did we ruin it?" she nervously asked a stagehand.

"Fuck, we ruined it. Let's give it to someone, I'll never play that again."

Check out a video of our favorite performance of the night, the energetic Queen staple "Don't Stop Me Now," above.

Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty to Attacking Rihanna

Chris Brown has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of attacking pop singer Rihanna and making criminal threats against her, stemming from their Feb. 8 altercation.

Arriving in all black and showing very little emotion, Brown was accompanied by four bodyguards and his mother, Joyce Hawkins, to the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Los Angeles Monday.

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, is working on a plea deal with prosecutors that will include no jail time. If convicted of both charges, however, Brown could face up to four years and eight months behind bars.

Brown will return to court April 29 for the next hearing.

Who the F is this?

Her name is Jennifer Hawkins.

Hawkins, 25, is an Australian gal, best known for her title of Miss Universe 2004!!!

Hawkins has since pursued a handful of professional modeling gigs, becoming the face of Australian department store giant Myer and even doing endorsements for Covergirl.

Here she is at the Golden Slipper Day 2009 at Rosehill Gardens Saturday in Sydney.

In the Ring with Mickey Rourke

Mickey Rourke entered the ring at Wrestlemania 25 Sunday to settle some real-life beef!

The actor and former boxer, 56, had been feuding with pro wrestler Chris Jericho, 38, for weeks before Sunday's event. Apparently, Jericho made a comment that Rourke's character in The Wrestler was "not my story," Rourke says.

So he took it to the ring!

After Jericho defeated wrestling legends Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat, Rourke entered the ring and knocked down Jericho to close out the match!

You can check out video of the action here.

Metallica, Beck, Run-DMC Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

It was a huge night at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland last night, as Metallica, Beck, Run-DMC, Bobby Womack, Little Anthony & The Imperials and Wanda Jackson were inducted.

What an eclectic group!!

Also turning up for the event was Eminem, who inducted Run-DMC with a moving speech.

"I still remember being in 9th grade when Tougher Than Leather came out," said Em. "I skipped school to go get it on cassette. As soon as I heard Run's House, it was pretty much a rap for me. Marshall Mathers became Eminem."

Beck's speech included a middle finger to everyone who ever stood in his way, Metallica reunited onstage with former bassist Jason Newsted, and the annual all-star jam was a cover of "Jailhouse Rock" (with Fontana, Beck, Wanda Jackson, Little Anthony and Spooner Oldham) and then The Yardbirds' "Train Kept A-Rollin" by Beck, Jimmy Page, Flea and Ron Wood.

It was a night to be remembered!
