AXE 'reviewing' T.I. promotions

Before his arrest on suspicion of drug possession, T.I. was making a solid comeback from a brief prison stint stemming from weapons charges. He's starred in a box-office success, dropped chart-scaling hits and has also been spotted in a promotion with AXE, the company behind some of those saucy ads for hair and body products.

But since his arrest, AXE has said they’re “reviewing” their relationship with the rap star.

In a statement to CNN, the company explained that they partnered with T.I. “earlier this year for a promotional campaign” because they were “encouraged that the entertainer was working to become a more positive role model for others.”

Photos from 'Captain America,' 'X-Men' hit the web

Neither "Captain America: The First Avenger" nor "X-Men: First Class" are due to arrive in theaters for quite a while, but fans can already get a sneak peek at some of the costume design thanks to recent photos from the films' respective sets.

The images snapped at “X-Men’s” set depict January Jones as Emma Frost, aka the White Queen, rocking a retro look that included a short white coat, knee-high boots and a furry white hat. The pictures also caught what appears to be her stunt double wearing a matching outfit and haircut.

And although Chris Evans is the star in “Captain America,” it was his stunt double that was captured by cameras on the film’s London-area set and obtained by U.K. paper The Daily Mail. The stunt double was decked out in the iconic costume, complete with helmet and shield, and riding out on a period motorbike.

Newark mayor: Snooki needs an intervention

It looks like Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi  is still having a little trouble staying on the right side of the law.

Newark, New Jersey mayor Cory Booker launched into a (basically one-sided) Twitter dialogue with Snooki Wednesday, taking her to task for appearing to text while driving.

Snooks tweeted, “Ugh stuck in newark traffic is no fun," and Booker wrote in response, “Snooki! I'm the mayor where R U so I can give u a ticket 4 texting & driving we needs revenue!”

Ohio apologizes to Crystal Bowersox for security breach

Crystal “MamaSox” Bowersox may not have won last season’s “American Idol,” but she still has had to deal with some of the pitfalls of celebrity.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that employees of five police agencies, a municipal court and the bureau of motor vehicles used computers to access confidential databases to peek at the singer’s personal information.

Bowersox received a letter of apology from an Ohio Department of Public Safety official for the unauthorized breaches of her privacy and was informed that there was no evidence that she had become an identity-theft victim.

Matthew Morrison aims for February album release

School will soon be in session once again for Will Schuester, and Matthew Morrison – who portrays the teacher on “Glee” – is trying to squeeze in work on his album in between filming episodes.

“I’m about three-quarters of the way done,” he told Billboard of the record, which he hopes to debut in February, 2011. “During our hiatus was the big chunk of putting it together - it's full-time 'Glee' right now. I'm trying to do it on the weekends."

Morrison describes the album as “eclectic,” with "a lot of stuff that you would find on the adult contemporary charts, but stuff that I hope you'll hear in the club and you can dance to."

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Paris, Britney and Lindsay, oh my

In today’s morning meeting, the “Showbiz Tonight” staff felt like it was 2007 – we were talking about Lindsay, Britney and Paris all over again!

Here's what's up with Paris: A new book is alleging that the reality TV star hid drugs inside her body. That’s as far as we can take that story because it’s just too detailed a report for me to explain in this blog. (Yikes!)

What I can tell you is that there was a collective gasp in the morning meeting when everyone read the latest CNN wire on the lawsuit and the allegations about Paris.
