Just when we were getting sick of Tom Cruise‘s intense gaze and sci-fi slang, comes a new video of the actor winning the IAS Freedom Medal of Valor in some Scientology auditorium or temple surrounded by fellow worshippers worshipping him. What an honor! If you enjoy strange salutes, inside jokes, and eerie calls to arms made by movie stars with massive egos, then this is totally your thing. So my fellow SPs, enjoy this clip quickly before it’s snatched off the web by Xenu. LRH would want you to!
Updated: All six of the juicy Tom Cruise Scientology Videos can be found here in order. Did you know Tom Cruise is singlehandedly responsibly for saving and curing the firemen who fell ill after rescuing people at the World Trade Center on 9-11? Watch and learn!

Britney’s Daily List of Dumb Things to Do Today
- Sleep with the married photographer that used to stalk me after only knowing him for 26 days.
- Get knocked up with his baby because I miss my kids so much after screwing up that whole custody thing. Yeah, that was pretty dumb of me.
- Eat a delicious, nutritious dinner of chocolates and tiny bottles of Zinfandel.
- Oh, I almost forgot — get engaged to my creepy boyfriend so I can look at his sexy goatee forever!
- Go out to buy a pregnancy test in public; let his photo agency take pics of the shopping trip and sell them.
- Drive by Kevin’s house at 3 a.m. high on Taco Bell.
- Light a cigarette in the car with a giant kitchen lighter.

Let’s play Remember When. As in, remember when Rock of Love debuted last fall, shocking television with the easy wits of its contestants and the impressive leonine hair of its host, Bret Michaels? Good times, people. Now that Rock of Love is back for a second season, we’d like to take the opportunity to remind you of the halcyon moments in the first. See the clip above, for example. In it, Tiffany (whose phrase, “Don’t threaten me with a good time” should have already been inducted into the Crazy Statements Hall of Fame) offers Bret a lapdance. In response, Bret claims that she “beat my penis to a pulp.” Once a rock star, always a rock star.

Modestly assured of its star-making power — even as Katharine McPhee and Taylor Hicks are dropped from their labels — American Idol returns for a triumphant seventh season, ready to mint a label-ready American pop star. Again.
With Idol, the beginning is the worst. Thousands flock to audition, each bringing with them a pittance of talent and, more often than not, an excess of volume. As we opened in the City of Brotherly Love, we watched Randy, Paula and Simon enduring the following Philadelphians:
Tutus, slippers and tights — they’re not the first things that come to mind when you think of Antwan “Big Boi” Patton of Outkast. But the Boi’s changing that with the ballet he’ll be performing in on April 10th through the 13th in his hometown with the Atlanta Ballet Company. The ballet, big, will feature selections from the Outkast catalog (including “Bombs Over Baghdad” and “The Way You Move”) as well as music from his forthcoming album, with plans to take the show overseas in the Spring.
In an interview with Spin magazine about the project, Big Boi said, “I’ve dated a couple of ballerinas. But I was like, ‘That sounds kind of dope – let’s crank it up.’”

Hey future little duder or dudette, or whatever kind of creature you may be,
This is your dad Matthew McConaughey writing to you. Actor Matthew McConaughey. That’s right, I’m your pops. Don’t freak. I know Sahara will probably be like, your fave flick, but seriously, it’s not that big of a deal. What is a big deal is that you’re my kid and I love you. You were made out of love. Hot, sweaty, sandy love, with a little bit of ocean water and seaweed mixed in. Or you were created on the pull-out bed in my totally rad trailer. We can’t really remember, cuz it was one of those nights were I was hosting the full moon drum circle and stuff got a little nuts. But what matters is that we love you, dude, and I want to make sure you know one very important thing: your mom is smokin’ hot. So hot it hurts. I just wanted to bring that up. Anyway, I can’t wait to get to know you and stuff. I can’t believe I’ve actually made something good!
Peace out little guy,
PS – Please don’t go see Fool’s Gold.
Is it possible that John Mayer is actually not just a cool guy, but an even cooler ex-boyfriend? The cocky rocker posted a Jessica Simpson-defending manifesto on his blog, after the entire state of Texas and every member of Cowboy-nation blamed her for their team’s recent football failures (funny how no one actually blames the stupid dude who lost the game). The only problem with John’s sweet words is that they’re probably gonna make Jess (and her dad) fall back in love with John all over again. Now that would really punish Tony Romo for ruining the lives of millions of Texans. John blogged:
Dear Dallas and Surrounding Areas,
This isn’t a sports blog, and it isn’t a publicity stunt. (but have at me if it feels right.) This is about doing what I think is right as a person, in this case speaking my mind. I have never known anyone to have more pride in their home state and their upbringing in it than Jessica Simpson has in Texas. I don’t really follow sports, but I have played some of my biggest and best concerts in your state, and having witnessed how dynamic the spirit there is, I’m betting emotions are running high right about now. All witty barbs, blogs, and fashion policing aside, that girl loves Texas more than you know. It’s one of her most defining traits as a person. So please don’t try and take that away from her. (You probably wouldn’t be able to, but it’s less work for all involved.)
I just thought it would mean something coming from the guy who has the absolute least to gain from this. And if I’m out of line in having written it, too bad. I can spare a Wednesday’s worth of bad press if it means sticking up for a good soul.
