Losing hope on 'The Walking Dead'

Sunday night's return of "The Walking Dead" left us in a bleaker place than ever before.

In the aftermath of the discovery of Sophia in Hershel's barn (and the subsequent massacre of every walker therein, including members of Hershel's family), the farm owner told Rick and his group of survivors to get off his land.

As has been the pattern this season, this led to lots of fighting between Rick and Shane, while Shane in turn continued to taunt Dale, who shared his concerns (and correct belief that Shane killed Otis) with Lori.

Does Brand have anything to do with Katy Perry's Grammys song?

Katy Perry's "Part of Me" performance was in good company at Sunday's Grammys, as she wasn't the only one singing of broken hearts and relationships gone wrong.

Adele, the current queen of lovelorn pop songs, also took the stage to croon about getting played to the beat after handing her heart over to a paramour.

It's possible that Perry's fiery performance of her new single was just keeping in line with that theme, or perhaps she was singing generally of the emotions one has after a break-up. Or, as some have questioned, maybe those lyrics were inspired by recent events in her personal life.

Replay: Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Whitney Houston

Jennifer Hudson pulled off a touching, 11th hour tribute to Whitney Houston at the Grammy Awards Sunday following the death of the 48-year-old legend.

It was a performance executive producer Ken Ehrlich promised would be "respectful" to Houston's legacy. Hudson proved his word when she took the stage with nothing but a mic and a spotlight, and offered a moving performance of "I Will Always Love You."

At the end of the song, she honored Houston by saying, "Whitney, we will always love you."

Celine Dion on Houston: Drugs took over her dreams

Celine Dion is facing criticism Monday after an interview with "Good Morning America" in which she alleged that drug use "took over" Whitney Houston's life.

Dion, who called in to the show to speak with "GMA's" Robin Roberts, began by reiterating how much Houston, who died Saturday, influenced her English career.

She then launched into a lengthy response about how Houston's story - and that of other stars like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson - scares her.
