Limp Bizkit signs to Cash Money

Just when you thought to ask where are Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit, Lil’ Wayne came through with an answer.

In a recent interview with New York’s 98.7 KissFM’s DJ Lenny Green, the multi-platinum-selling rapper and Young Money president was asked about all of Young Money and Cash Money’s recent signings, admitting he can’t keep up himself.

“Every other day I hear about somebody new just signed to Cash Money,” Wayne said before announcing the latest member of the Young Money/Cash Money roster.

Oscars planning Whitney 'tribute,' or something less?

The Grammys went to great efforts to celebrate the life and acknowledge the passing of Whitney Houston, but don’t expect quite the same from the Academy Awards.

At the height of her career, Houston was a bona fide movie star, but Oscar show producers say they're not planning any special tribute to her beyond a mention in the traditional “In Memoriam” piece.

That segment will last about four minutes and include dozens of industry figures who died in the past year (including notables who worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes).

Leap Day comes to '30 Rock'

On this week’s "30 Rock," the TGS staff celebrated everyone’s favorite magical extra day: Leap Day. As Criss told Liz, quoting the classic film “Leap Dave Williams," “Real life is for March…nothing on leap day counts.”

The writers embraced the holiday. “I listened to rap music for the first time. Not a fan,” said Toofer.

Jenna convinced skeptical Liz to attend a party thrown by college classmate and billionaire Thad (guest star Steve Little), who Liz did not nickname “Sad Thad the Skin Tag Lad” in college. Jenna was determined to land a billionaire, but Thad offered Liz $20 million to take his virginity. (“Oh my. It looks like we’ve got a slut-off on our hands!”)

Sheldon runs wild on 'The Big Bang Theory'

What happens when you take the order out of Sheldon? Well, you get chaos, as we saw on Thursday night's "The Big Bang Theory."

Before I go any further, I have to admit there were many LOLs during last week's episode featuring that painting. I hope you enjoyed it too.

On to this week: Like everything else in his life, Sheldon's day is strictly planned out and controlled down to his haircuts. With his regular barber away, he wasn't about to let someone else cut his hair.

Friday's Top Five: Overrated Oscar winners

Where have all the good movies gone this year?

I know, I know - I'm sure "Hugo" is magical, "War Horse" is heartwarming and "The Artist" is a beautiful picture. But I find it appalling that the Academy has the nerve to nominate nine best pictures when there's been an overwhelming absence of good movies lately.

For the past few years, to me at least, Hollywood has not really produced anything on a consistent basis worth going to see in theaters. Instead, Redboxes are filled with tween fairy tales and pointless sequels, of which the originals weren’t that good in the first place.
