Katy Perry: Fan of Lady Gaga, Jesus Christ

Subtlety is not exactly Katy Perry's strong suit, as she evidenced when she told "Showbiz Tonight," "I'm the hugest Lady Gaga fan, but I'm also the hugest Jesus Christ fan!"

But with that statement, she may have put to rest all those rumors that she's in a nasty feud with Lady Gaga.

"Showbiz Tonight" was there in New York City's Times Square when Katy Perry, clad in a rubber dress, jumped off the stage after performing her new single "California Gurls," and of course we left no stone unturned in the interview.

Backlash over Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra

The author of the biography “Cleopatra: A Life” may be hailing Angelina Jolie as the perfect choice to play the queen, but some folks aren’t so sure.

On African American blogs and message boards, people are speaking out against the casting of Jolie in a role they believe should go to an actress of color.

Essence.com recently featured a commentary titled, “Another White Actress to Play Cleopatra?” where the writer opined, “Honestly, I don't care how full Angelina Jolie's lips are, how many African children she adopts, or how bronzed her skin will become for the film, I firmly believe this role should have gone to a Black woman.”

John Goodman opens up about his weight loss

John Goodman is looking good, and he knows it.

When the 57-year-old actor stopped by the “The Late Show with David Letterman” last night, he acknowledged what many in the industry have already noticed: Goodman has dropped some obvious weight.

The weight loss, he joked, is “kind of like letting the gas out of the balloons up on 77th street every Thanksgiving.” Goodman mused his all-time high was somewhere around 400 pounds.

'SYTYCD' raises the bar

On the way to choosing this season's top 11 dancers, we saw a lot of incredible technique on display in the auditions and in Las Vegas, and we ended up with a strong group competing for the title of "America's Favorite Dancer."

But as Wednesday night's first real performance show of "So You Think You Can Dance" revealed, many of them have a lot to learn about connecting with the audience as well as their "all-star" partners.

One after another, the dancers were told by the judges that their performance level needed to be improved, whether it was Alexie with her "too cute" version of a Tabitha and Napoleon routine (not to mention the fact that she was overshadowed by Twitch), Adechike's lack of chemistry with Kathryn, or Lauren paying more attention to the audience than her partner, Ade.

Last supper at Liuzza's by the Track on 'Treme'

It doesn't look good for Creighton Bernette.

When "Treme" last left John Goodman's character, he seemed to have given up on his city. In this week's episode, Bernette has writer's block. "But the rain still came. It rained, one day into the next," he writes before banishing the thought to the blink of a cursor on a blank page.

We should be worried then, when on a spring morning in New Orleans, he puts a smile on his face and begins a day filled with his favorite things.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart tie the knot

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have tied the knot after 8 years together, Flockhart's rep confirmed to CNN. The couple wed in New Mexico on Tuesday, where Ford is filming "Cowboys and Aliens," according to People.

The wedding was performed by New Mexico's Governor Bill Richardson, under the legal supervision of the state's Chief Justice Charles W. Daniels. The couple's 9-year-old son, Liam - whom Flockhart adopted in 2001 - was also in attendance.

Ford, 67, proposed to Flockhart, 45, on Valentine's Day in 2009. This is marriage number four for Ford, and the first for Flockhart.
