Megan Fox removing Marilyn Monroe tattoo?

Megan Fox is reportedly in the process of removing her Marilyn Monroe tattoo, reports E! Online.

Reports say the starlet is undergoing laser removal because she feels that an image of Monroe - allegedly afflicted by mental illness – will attract negative energy, she's said to have revealed to Italian magazine Amica.

"I'm removing it," Fox confirmed to Amica of the large, fading face on her right forearm.  "It's a negative character, as [Marilyn Monroe] suffered from personality disorders and was bipolar ... I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.”

'The Simpsons' are going Gaga

Surely this was only a matter of time: Lady Gaga will guest on "The Simpsons" in the 23rd season.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the Mother Monster has recorded a guest spot for an episode called "Lisa Goes Gaga." The pop superstar ventures to Springfield in the episode after she finds out that it's full of self-esteem, and ends up giving Lisa a pep talk that includes a song (of course) and a flash mob.

"I make music, and I don't do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny; I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor," she told EW of the experience, which she called "a little nerve-wracking."

'Mad Men' kid: 'Be careful around' January Jones

The little boy who plays Don and Betty Draper’s son on “Mad Men” doesn't seem to be a big fan of onscreen mom January Jones, reports TV Guide.

Jared Gilmore, the show’s third Bobby Draper, is leaving the AMC hit series for ABC's upcoming fairy-tale drama “Once Upon a Time.” But before he goes, Gilmore wants to warn his tiny successor about his former TV mom.

"Be careful around January [Jones]. She's not as approachable as the others,” the 11-year-old cautions. “She's really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice."

"Muppets: The Green Album" arrives in stores today, and there's already a video to go along with one of the tracks.

In the clip, we see our favorite characters, including Fozzie, The Swedish Chef, Animal, Kermit, Gonzo and Miss Piggy join in. Don't miss Statler and Waldorf's appearance a minute and a half in.

2011 is shaping up to be the year of the Muppet: a feature length film starring the old-school Jim Henson creations, appropriately titled "The Muppets" arrives in theaters on November 23. (See trailer one and trailer two at the links.)

Katie Couric's new talk show to be called 'Katie'

Katie Couric says she won't be able to fill Oprah Winfrey's talk show shoes, but she is following in the queen of daytime TV's footsteps with one thing: her show title.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Couric's fall 2012 talk show on ABC will be called "Katie." Some of the promotional material being floated about has the tagline, "The Opportunity Begins September 6." (What opportunity? The opportunity to watch "Katie," clearly.)

In June, Couric announced that she was departing her gig at CBS and moving to ABC to not only anchor her own syndicated talk show, but also to take part in the network's news programming.
