Now that it’s official, Howard Stern is excited for Britney Spears to serve as an X Factor judge. But not for the reasons Simon Cowell is likely hoping for.
“I think it’s a wonderful decision,” Stern said today at a New York’s Friars Club press conference. “Britney still thinks the earth is flat… I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing. As far as any real criticism, I think Simon and LA Reid will do that. As far as criticism, I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit…

Patrice Wilson is the man who wrote “Friday,” the infamous single that put Rebecca Black on the musical map. And, as you might imagine, he took a lot of flak for penning such a ridiculous anthem.
Now, in response to the feedback, Wilson has come out with his very own music video for some single titled “H.A.P.P.Y.”
“I figured I might as well kind of tell the story of what happened,” says Wilson. “When people see that it’s not getting to you, then maybe they can start liking you. With all the hate, I just wanted to make something that would make peopleMore >
They’ve got nothing on the Harvard baseball team, but the lovely ladies from E!’s Fashion Police put together their own “Call Me Maybe” cover video.
These viral video offerings have become almost as big a craze as the pop song by Carly Rae Jepsen burning up the radio, and it’s easy to see why.
How can you not want to have fun with your buds and bop around to such an infectious beat? Katy Perry and friends do it. So to the girls at E!
Joan Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne, George Kotsiopoulos and a bunch of their fabulous friends want you to call them … well, maybe.More >
With the semifinals just one week away and a double elimination on tap tonight on Dancing with the Stars, the pressure was on Monday night.
Underdogs Melissa Gilbert and Roshon Fegan needed to step up big time in order to stay out of jeopardy tonight, and one just may have.
Neither could touch the Cuban Brad Pitt, however.
In the first round Monday, William Levy and Cheryl Burke landed atop the leader board with a high-energy foxtrot that earned a perfect score.
“You bring these performances to life,” Carrie Ann Inaba said.More >
It may not be Friday, but Rebecca Black has come out with a new single.
The controversial teenager – best known for what many consider to the worst track in the history of recorded music – will be all over the news again this week because her latest song, “Sing It,” gets released tomorrow on iTunes.
That familiar voice/It speaks to me/Tells me everything is gonna be ok/It’s meant to, meant to be… Sun is out/ And the darkness fades/Got my headphones on and I’m under/In a dream but I’m wide awake, sings Black over the course of verses that actually don NOT sound overly auto-tuned.

Tommy Jordan, a North Carolina dad, recently taught his teenage daughter the hard way to show some respect – and that nothing on the Internet is really private.
He pulled out a gun and pumped nine bullets into her laptop – on camera.
When her dad discovered a Facebook rant that she thought she had blocked from him, he decided to respond in a way that will certainly never be forgotten.
Jordan, of Albemarle, N.C., posted this video on YouTube, responding to his daughter Hannah’s post, in which she complained about having to do chores:More >
But now nine-year old MattyB – yes, he’s nine years old! – has come out with his very first original single. It’s titled “That’s the Way” and it’s available now on iTunes.

Lana Del Rey may not have put on the worst musical performance in Saturday Night Live history, but she is definitely living through the worst fallout.
Following her appearance on the program (below) a few weeks ago, an email written by NBC anchor Brian Williams was leaked which referred to its as “one of the worst outings” ever on the sketch series, while many celebrities bashed Del Rey on Twitter.
Now, sources tell The New York Post that management has decided to cancel a tour Del Rey had lined up to promote her debut album, “Born to Die.”

Sultan of sleaze Joe Francis is threatening to sue Madonna if she performs her new song called “Girls Gone Wild” at the Super Bowl tomorrow. Yes, really.
Francis, creator of the infamous Girls Gone Wild franchise, in which he films drunk girls exposing themselves on spring break, is apparently dead serious.
He has issued a cease and desist letter claiming he will take legal action against Madonna if she sings that particular song at this weekend’s festivities.
The letter (sent to Madonna, NBC Universal and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell) from Francis’ Nevada lawyer David Houston, statesMore >
Look out, music world. Lexi Sullivan is coming.
The young singer stars in a new video for a track titled “Hot Stuff,” which is produced by Ark Music Factory, the same company that made a star out of Rebecca Black.
And, no offense to Lexi, who may be perfectly nice and innocent in all this, but the song makes Black’s “Friday” sound like a Grammy winner.
In it, Sullivan appears to be singing about some cute boy who isn’t very nice, so his glasses break and some other stuff happens and, really, you just need to watch for yourself. But do it with ear plugs, folks. You’ve been warned…More >
