American Idol Star Randy Jackson Is Bringing Aptitude Test To VH1


One of our favorite things on television is that moment on Inside The Actor’s Studio when James Lipton asks his guest what profession they would have chosen had they not gone into acting, so we’re so excited to announce the newest show to VH1, called Aptitude Test, which will let celebs train and work in a “regular” job, just like the rest of us. American Idol judge Randy Jackson has created the show, which premieres in 2012, which will take A-listers and give them a high school aptitude test to see what profession they should have had if they never got their big break. “The show is a fun look at what could have been,” Jackson says. There’s even more information about the new series after the jump.

And The Greatest Song Of The ’00s Is…



All week, VH1 has been rolling out the 100 Greatest Songs of The ’00s and tonight we finally made it to number one which is…(drumroll)…Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”! We’ve always maintained that this song is like a party(and we’re all invited) so we think its place at #1 is well-deserved, but we want to know if you agree. Our distinguished panel certainly does — they can’t help but booty pop in their seats just talking about it. Mob Wives star Drita D’avanzo puts it best though, when she says, “Beyonce and Jay-Z is like peanut butter and jelly, and you just want it.” After the jump,check out the full list of the top 100 songs from the ’00s, and then make your way to the comments section to let us know if Beyonce is the best choice to sit at the top of our list.
