I’m actually really excited about the “American Idol” finale this year. Both Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox, the final two, are headed for big music fame as far as I’m concerned. All along I’ve been rooting for Mamasox, but on Tuesday night Lee changed my mind. After the jump, why I think he’s going to take the title. Keep reading »

Olympic ice dancers Charlie White, 22, and Tanith Belbin, 25, were known to the world as rivals in Vancouver this past winter, but behind the scenes they were having a torrid love affair. Collective “aaahhhh,” please. White’s skating partner. Meryl Davis. and Belbin’s partner. Benjamin Agosto. knew about the secret relationship going into the Winter Olympics. Even though White and Belbin have known each other for years, they began to fall in love last June, but they chose to keep it on the DL during the season, communicating mostly via text and Facebook. They didn’t want the relationship to distract them from skating their best in Vancouver. “We like each other a lot, and the competing part hasn’t ever factored into our relationship or how we work with our respective partners,” Belbin said.

After the jump, some other hot celebrity moms over 40 who make us want to wait … as long as we possibly can.
“Avatar” was a mega-money maker for all involved, but author Kelly Van seems to think she was left out of the pay day to the tune of a quarter of a million dollars. Why? She claims that James Cameron stole ideas from her unpublished sci-fi romance novel, Sheila the Warrior: the Damned. She’s filed a copyright lawsuit against the filmmaker, stating that the characters, setting, plot, sound, visual effects, and total concept of “Avatar” are similar to her book which is about people from Earth who travel to another planet called “Tibet.” I wonder how she came up with that name? Very creative. Keep reading »
Dear Richard LaMotta,
I am deeply saddened by the news of your passing last Tuesday. I never knew you, but I’ve known your creation, the Chipwich, intimately for years now. I first met my good friend the Chipwich on the beach the summer when I was 6 years old. It was a particularly humid day as I wandered over to the beach shack to check out the popsicle selection. Popsicles are fun and all, but I was looking for a more sophisticated treat … something more imaginative than neon-colored sugary ice on a stick. Popsicles are so predictable. Something caught my eye. A picture of a round frosty treat unlike any I’d ever seen before. Two chocolate chip cookies with ice cream in the middle? An orbit of mini chocolate chips around the perimeter? My two favorite treats, ice cream and cookies, together in one glorious dessert? Was it a mirage? No, it was a Chipwich. And it was love at first bite. Keep reading »
Just three minutes ago (in pop culture time), Justin Bieber was just a wee Canadian boy with a YouTube channel, floppy hair, and a dream of becoming a superstar. When he first arrived on the music scene, critics were dubbing him the next Michael Jackson (huh?) or Justin Timberlake. Now he’s causing tween riots riots around the world, making 3-year-olds cry, and performing with the likes of Usher. Katy Perry and cougars everywhere want to bonk him; Kim Kardashian wants to set him up with her little sis; lesbians everywhere are rushing out to get his haircut; and every up-and-coming pre-pubescent boy wants to be the next him. After the jump, two young chaps who are being dubbed the next J-Bieb. Does this mean his three minutes are about to end? Keep reading »
If Lady Gaga got all of her “little monsters” together, she could probably start a Gaga-lution. But not all of her monsters are so little. As it so happens, Gaga is involved in a good romance with the over-50 crowd. What should we call them? “Big monsters”? Apparently, the “big monsters” are all about Gaga’s music. Step away from the iPod, Grandma! Must make some lively bridge conversation. If she has such a big elderly following, does this mean she’ll consider doing an all-geriatric concert, no earplugs necessary? After the jump, PopEater caught up with a few of Gaga’s most mature monsters. Keep reading »
