The pressure is on Wednesday night for the Top 12 male “Idol” contestants.

The ladies were less than spectacular on Tuesday night, which left some fans wondering what happened to all of the girl power that was so prominently on display during Hollywood Week.

It’s up to the men to really deliver some incredible performances on Wednesday night. That’s going to mean bringing more energy, better song choices, and - according to the judges on Tuesday night - more originality.

Johnny Cash would have been 78 on Friday.

The Man in Black died in 2003. To the end, he was a voice of truth and humility, a connector of generations, a legend. (You can still hear that voice: His last album with producer Rick Rubin, the bare-bones "American VI: Ain't No Grave," came out on Tuesday.)

In honor of the great man's birthday, the Cash family, Rubin and his American Recordings and Lost Highway Records are asking for a tribute: Wear Black for Cash.

Matt Damon attached to RFK biopic

Matt Damon

Deadline Hollywood reports that Matt Damon has been tapped to portray Robert F. Kennedy in a new biopic based on the Evan Thomas biography, "Robert Kennedy: His Life."

Damon's rep confirmed to CNN that Damon is attached to the project, and added that it's still in the very early stages of development.

The actor has been riding a wave of critical success as of late with leading roles in two of 2009's notable films, "The Informant!" as well as "Invictus," the latter of which has earned Damon an Oscar nod for best supporting actor.

Do you think he can pull off the role of RFK? And if not Damon, who?

Kelly Osbourne on struggles with weight and drugs

Kelly Osbourne, who checked into rehab for drug and alcohol addiction three times, told US Weekly she had a harder time dealing with her weight.

“I took more hell for being fat than I did for being an absolute raging drug addict,” the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant said. “I will never understand that.”

She recalls one painful incident involving a teenager who screamed “You’re fat” to her from a car window.

Osbourne, 25, who lost 42 pounds with portion control and exercise, said, “I’m really proud to look in the mirror and not hate every single thing I see.”

Osbourne’s diet and workout plan will be featured in US Weekly Friday.

Official Madonna iPhone app totally cool, and totally free

Like a Twitter account, an iPhone app is a celebrity (or faux-celebrity) must-have.

Within the past year, there's been a slew of them: Diddy's app lets you know where he likes to eat; rapper Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em's app lets the user remix his songs; T-Pain's gives the gift of Auto-Tune and Britney Spears’s “It’s Britney!” app blurts out an expletive when you shake it.

Thrilling stuff, but the Material Girl's new official iPhone app just may top them all. FULL POST
