As seen in Us (January 11, 2010): What's it say about our culture that 100 people (presumably adults?) quizzed in Times Square (when they weren't too busy avoiding mysterious potential van-bombs) overwhelmingly chose a 17-year-old as having the best body when shown images of six of Hollywood's current hottest heartthrobs?
Granted, Taylor Lautner has a ridiculous body. But still!
Meanwhile, how could Jake Gyllenhaal only knock down 5% of the vote?
UPDATE: Maybe the big story won't end up being that he dies or that he had an actual heart attack, but that he's...back on the "meds".
Now that Rush Limbaugh has had a heart attack (or otherwise been hospitalized with chest pains), Twitter is alive with hopes for his death and wishes for his speedy recovery. If he lives, I imagine he'll go ape over all the liberals who made light of his sickness, conveniently forgetting his and his followers' appalling comments about Ted Kennedy. And didn't thousands on the right buy T-shirts implicitly calling for President Obama's death? (Limbaugh called Kurt Cobain a "worthless shred of human debris" with the rockstar died.)
If he lives, I have a sick feeling President Obama will visit him; well wishes would be enough.
Regardless, it's fascinating that he is in Hawaii right after Sarah Palin and at the same time as President Obama...and is hospitalized in the same facility where Obama was born.
"I've been kind of up on Madonna these days. I grew up in the '80s, so she provided the soundtrack to my life. I think my favorite song is 'Crazy for You'. It's got such an aching and a longing to it; I know we're doing that song in the Madonna episode [on Glee]."
The first confirmation of one of the songs used in the upcoming Madonna episode. (Wait, she "grew up" in the '80s? She would've been in her twenties throughout...? Never mind. Pro-Madonna is pro-Madonna.)
W's Korean edition subtly but noticeably fixes Demi's missing hip, the one she and her people and the magazine and the photographers claim was never retouched (incorrectly or correctly) in the first place.
I certainly don't blame Kurt Haskell for speaking out about his experience on Flight 253—he is the Michigan lawyer who claims to have witnessed the Flight 253 bomber in Amsterdam being helped onto the Detroit-bound flight at the insistence of a well-dressed "Indian" (hmmm...Pakistani?) man, and who further claims to have witnessed a young Indian man getting arrested after the passengers were removed from the plane for questioning—but I can't say I believe all that he's saying.
