Paltrow was faking CMAs nerves, says pal Batali

If you believe Gwyneth Paltrow's pal Mario Batali, the actress deserves an Academy Award for her performance at this years CMAs. The celebrity chef says he doesn't believe the polished Paltrow was at all intimidated to sing in front of the powerhouse country crowd.

Prior to making her live-singing debut at the November 10 event, Paltrow admitted in a radio interview, "If I don't faint, if I can just get through it, it'll be OK. Most people start in a bar, then a bigger bar, then maybe a theater. You're not supposed to just start at the CMAs. It's a little scary."

But Batali, who appeared with Paltrow on the 2008 PBS food-and-travel series "Spain… On the Road Again," isn't buying it.

Do you think Rebecca Black hates Fridays now?

We're pretty sure there was once a time when Fridays were full of awesome and fun for young Rebecca Black, judging from that not-quite-melodic ode to the weekday that's gone viral.

In the "official video" for "Friday," Black sings (with a healthy, healthy assist from auto-tune) about the joys of Friday, when she can decide if she wants to ride in the front seat or the back, and there's nothing but "fun, fun, fun, fun."

Sample lyrics: "Yesterday was Thursday (Thursday)/Today it is Friday (Friday)/We, we, we so excited/We so excited/We gonna have a ball today/Tomorrow is Saturday/and Sunday comes afterwards/I don't want this weekend to end."

Aerosmith, J-Lo both slated to perform on 'Idol'

“American Idol” won’t have to go far this season to find acts to perform.

Fancast.com reports that executive producer Nigel Lythgoe told xfinityTV.com that Aerosmith and Jennifer Lopez will both perform at some point during Season 10.

And fans won’t have to wait for the show’s season finale to see it happen, he said. “It will probably be before that, actually,” Lythgoe said.

Aerosmith’s lead singer, Steven Tyler, and Jennifer Lopez are both new judges on this season’s “Idol.”

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin - great casting?

Sarah Palin is speaking out about the news that Oscar-nominated Julianne Moore has been cast to play her in the upcoming HBO film “Game Change.”

She told Fox News, “Well, I am all about job creation and I guess I could provide some of these gals who pretend like they're me some job security…”

Palin surely doesn’t sound thrilled about the idea that anyone is going to play her on film, but I will say, Julianne Moore has always been one of my favorite actresses (in addition to being a really nice person). I think she’ll be terrific! But what do you think?

Tiger Woods to appear on 'Fallon'

After keeping a relatively low public profile, golf pro Tiger Woods is getting back into the game with his first talk show appearance since his marriage fell apart amidst claims he had multiple mistresses.

On March 16, Woods will be a guest on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," and the two will even play a round of miniature golf, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "We're going to do it," Fallon confirmed at the PaleyFest festival on Friday.

The men previously hit the links together when they played a round of Wii's "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10" in 2009 and Fallon beat Woods at his own game.
