Minor-league hockey team offers Aguilera a do-over

A minor league hockey team is offering Christina Aguilera a national anthem do-over.

The superstar singer botched "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Sunday's Super Bowl, substituting a line she'd previously sung for the one she was supposed to be on.

"I got so lost in the moment of the song that I lost my place," Aguilera said. "I can only hope that everyone could feel my love for this country and that the true spirit of its anthem still came through."

Michelle has a plan on 'The Bachelor'

Last night's episode of "The Bachelor" began with Brad and the eight remaining women arriving in Costa Rica for a week of fun and adventure, though I'm pretty sure at least half of them couldn't find Costa Rica on a map.

Brad gives the ladies a tour of the hotel they are all staying at, and he's looking quite sweaty. Guess he remembered his passport, but not the deodorant.

Chantal is the recipient of the first individual date, and the show's resident cartoon villain, Michelle, is not happy about it, wishing that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys and apes during her date. (Well, Tortuguero National Park in Costa Rica is home to several species of monkeys...)

Janet Jackson opens up on struggle with body image

In an interview with “Today’s” Meredith Vieira, Janet Jackson opens up on her struggles with body image, as well as what it was like to grow up as a Jackson.

The 44-year-old star recalls in the interview that her father Joseph told her, “'I’m Joseph to you. You do not call me Dad.’

“That affects you as a kid,” Jackson went on. “I know my father loves me. He just has a very, very different way of showing it.”

Simon Cowell's feeling nervous about 'X Factor'

It seems as if everything Simon Cowell touches turns to gold: the original “X Factor,” “America’s Got Talent,” “American Idol.”

But that doesn’t mean he’s not nervous about the fall premiere of Fox’s “The X Factor.” After all, $5 million is a lot of money.

“I think you should be nervous,” Cowell told reporters on a conference call Monday. “By putting up that kind of prize money, it’s a massive, massive risk. But it’s also an incredible incentive, and I think it puts everybody, rightly, under an enormous amount of pressure.”
