Tears fall as two go home on 'The X Factor'

OMG.

What in the world happened on "X Factor" last night? There was tension between the judges, two of the best performers on the show were kicked off, and Drew couldn't stop crying! It's getting so hard to watch this show.

Everything started off on a high note, with the seven remaining finalists singing Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” together, and they all harmonized well. Marcus Canty, Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Melanie Amaro really stood out. Their voices are so unique and refreshing.

And then the eliminations began:

Gaga marries 'The Night' in new 14 minute video

Lady Gaga is known for creating evocative mini-movies to provide the visuals for her singles, and "Marry the Night" is no different.

Gaga starts her opus with a voiceover and a medical ward. Stretched out on a gurney, Gaga tells her audience, "When I look back on my life, it's not that I don't want to see things exactly as they happened, it's just that I prefer to remember them in an artistic way. And truthfully, the lie of it all is much more honest, because I invented it."

She continues, "It's sort of like my past is an unfinished painting, and as the artist of that painting, I must fill in all the ugly holes and make it beautiful again. It's not that I've been dishonest. It's just that I loathe reality."

Celebs inspire 2011's most, least popular baby names

As far as new parents are concerned, Mason is the most popular Kardashian.

The name of the youngest member (for now) of the Kardashian clan climbed eight spots on BabyCenter’s list of top names, becoming the third most popular boy’s name of 2011.

“We see it on the list every year, parents being influenced by the media,” said Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s global editor-in-chief. "Fifty percent said, ‘I’m influenced by celebrities, pop culture, what I see in the news.’ If it's someone you really admire, you’ll see a big jump.”

Questlove explains decision to play Bachmann intro song

According to Questlove, the decision to play Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass B–ch" as Michele Bachmann's intro song on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" a week ago wasn't a well thought-out move.

The Roots drummer says as much in an interview with Pitchfork, explaining that "it wasn't like a chess move where you have to think 12 steps ahead."

Instead, the band went for that Fishbone track in "a kamikaze-type way."

Batman’s ditched Gotham City for the Far East. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Christian Bale, 37, is the first major Westerner to play a lead role in a Chinese film.

The Oscar winner stars in the upcoming historical drama “The Flowers of War,” which is based on the novel "The 13 Women of Nanjing." Helmed by heralded director Zhang Yimou, the film cost an unprecedented $100 million.

THR notes that if “The Flowers of War” is successful, it could open doors for more American actors to star in Chinese films. The industry trade reports that the Chinese government currently limits the annual number of Western films to 20, but has a burgeoning film industry.

Kris Humphries claims fraud in legal separation docs

As TMZ reported earlier this week, it seems Kris Humphries may be feeling duped.

In court documents received by CNN, the pro basketball player filed for legal separation from Kim Kardashian on December 1, citing irreconcilable differences. He's also seeking to nullify his marriage to the 31-year-old reality star, in that instance citing fraud.

According to TMZ, it's rumored that Kim has disclosed to friends that she didn't deceive Kris and married for love.

Attorney Debra Opri tells "Showbiz Tonight" that Kris' response to seek an annulment, "makes a big difference, because if there's no marriage and no divorce, there's no spousal support." But, Opri continues, "to prove fraud, even in an annulment, is  a very difficult burden of proof."
