Earlier in the competition, Chris Sligh claimed he was "bringing chubby back." But last night, America dropped the weight. After being sent to the bottom three with Phil Stacey and Haley Scarnato (yes, Sanjaya wasn’t even in the bottomw three!), Chris was informed that he would be going home. Or, as Simon put it, "Bye, bye, Curly."
Last night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner was a hootin’, hollerin’ affair. President Bush warmed up the crowd with a few funnyisms, like when he joked about Senator Barack Obama’s “sleek, hairless pecs.” Fun, right? Even funner: When the baby-faced Darth Vader of the current Administration, Karl Rove, one of the president’s most trusted advisors and the man who has frequently been called “Bush’s brain,” got up on stage and rapped. He dubbed himself MC Rove and augmented his impromptu freestyling with some hippity-hoppity footwork – picture a cross between Lord of the Dance and what might happen were you to suddenly realize you were sitting in a pile of dogsh*t.

Cross you fingers. There’s a chance that The Donald might turn into the Kojak. The real estate tycoon has a wager with Vince McMahon regarding the results of this weekend’s Wrestlemania 23. If McMahon’s goon beats Trump’s goon, pop culture will have another buzzcut celeb on its hands, and Rosie O’Donnell will have a field day.
What would Trump look like without his famous comb-over?
If Diddy‘s constant flossing and general tone of entitlement don’t gross you out, this might: the entrepreneur/rapper/partier recently revealed that he’s engaged in tantric sex with Kim Porter, his longtime love, now in more ways than one. Did says the marathon happened during a recent Paris trip: “We went up to my suite and had tantric sex for at least 30 hours, ordering up whipped cream and strawberries while we were at it. As meticulous as I am with my work, I’m more meticulous with lovemaking.” Does that mean he samples other people’s rhythms in bed, too?
Moving from insertion to withdrawal, the recent cancellation of Diddy’s London concert with Snoop Dogg has got Diddy down. “I am going through Snoop withdrawal right now,” he says of his would-be partner, whose law problems have resulted in a ban from England. “I miss him a lot.” Diddy doesn’t miss him; he just misses Snoop’s doggy style.

As if there wasn’t enough to look forward to with the upcoming Spiderman 3 — Topher Grace, a more realistically complex Spiderman character — Record Collector has announced the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of indie fare. In addition to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wolfmother and the Walkmen, there’s the awesomely titled "Spiderman vs. Muhammad Ali" by the Flaming Lips. All songs are "new and exclusive" to the soundtrack according to the Record Collector site, though Chubby Checker’s 1960 hit "The Twist" is included. In keeping with the indie-fying of the soundtrack, maybe Checker’s song underwent a DFA remix, available only on 180 gram vinyl.
This isn’t the first time the indie cognoscenti have rallied around Spiderman — punk forefathers the Ramones‘ recorded a version of the theme song.

Halle Berry recently spoke out about a suicide attempt, and she wasn’t referring to Catwoman (shockingly!). In a Parade cover story, Halle says that she attempted to gas herself via her car following the break-up of her marriage to Atlanta Brave David Justice (the pair split in 1996). People says that this is something she "revealed," as though the story isn’t almost five years old. It is, actually, as this article in The Age proves. Dlisted also points out that she talked to Oprah about suicidal tendencies; though in that case, she was referring to a dire time in the messy aftermath of her second marriage to Eric Benét. ("My bay windows looked real good and I thought I was going to go right through them," she said.)

As the world knows, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen currently have two glorious schnozzes. But in celebville, everything is under scrutiny and nothing last long. So it’s been reported that the sisters are considering a visit to the the plastique surgeon. They’d perhaps do this together, and they’d perhaps come away with brand-new twin noses. The doctor they’re considering is responsible for the work done on Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, and Ashlee Simpson, so their nostrils are in good hands.
Tell us: Should the sisters buy the same nose?
