We’re not really into seeing famous people cry, unless it’s Paris Hilton. We just expect them to maintain some sort of stone-faced, plastic composure because you know – they’re famous (and because part of them probably IS plastic). But we got a little misty-eyed after The View women rallied around their pal Whoopi Goldberg, who was inexplicably left out of a montage honoring every Oscar host at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Also missing was Steve Martin, but that didn’t seem to appease the comedienne, who was the first woman AND first African-American to host the snooze-fest. Not to mention, she won a statue for her work in Ghost! Whoopi got choked up about the whole thing and the result is a touching hugfest that reeks of estrogen. Awww, girl power.
What do you think - did the Academy slight Whoopi on purpose or was it all a big mistake?
Lindsay Lohan, rehabber extraordinaire, took a tumble while leaving new LA hot spot Villa the other night. Luckily some giant dude was there to grab her and shove her into her waiting SUV, so she could be shuttled off to her next exclusive affair. Now we’re willing to give LiLo the benefit of the doubt – she could have totally been in an 8-inch pair of Louboutin heels and possibly slipped on some
ice air and toppled over. And hey, walking is really hard! But we’re kinda leaning toward the “someone poured a little too much bubbly into her Evian bottle” excuse. What do you think?
MySpace has nothing on FlavorofLoveWorld.com! The site allows fans to rant about cast members, predict who’ll be eliminated next — and, um, upload their hotness in the form of naughty pics and vids. Maybe we’re showing off, but VH1 has the sexiest users on the Internet and we are proving it by highlighting three Flavor of Love World users every day. See hot diversions one and two. Prepare to blush.
Janet Jackson is the Artist of the Week over at MTV, and in honor of her seven day reign at the network she’s made a bunch of hilarious videos parodying some of MTV’s classic shows. The legendary singer’s new album Discipline drops today, so if you’re hankering for a little piece of Ms. Jackson, check out her take on A Shot at Love with Tila Tequla and My Super Sweet Sixteen here. We’ve posted our fave above, in which Janet has a major meltdown, Real World style. Look out!
All aboard the hate train! Enjoy your trip!

Hwaet! Polar Express director Robert Zemeckis gives the Anglo-Saxon epic the motion-capture treatment. For those who snoozed through English 101, Beowulf is a buff warrior defending a Norse kingdom from a psychotic troll (voiced by Back to the Future alum Crispin Glover). Adequate, bawdy and antiseptic blood ‘n’ guts, with a naked and nipple-less Angelina Jolie thrown in for good measure.
Extras: A series of featurettes chart the interesting trip Beowulf has taken from barbarian entertainment to big-screen blockbuster, although the deleted scenes’ animation is incomplete.
Rating: Cýpan in Old English, or “buy” in the current version.

Drumroll please…not only does Mariah Carey have a beautiful voice and an incredible new album coming out (and we should know, we just listened to it), she’s also got a great sense of humor. In this sneak preview of Mimi’s video for her first single off of E=MC², “Touch My Body,” she invites the delightfully dorky Jack McBrayer (who you might know as Kenneth from 30 Rock) to, uh, touch her body, have a lingerie pillow-fight and play frisbee. And that’s just from the 45 seconds we’ve seen!
Come back on Tuesday at midnight when we’ll have the full premiere for “Touch My Body.”
