While you were working..

Today's news you might've missed:

  • This is a doozy: Sharon Osbourne says she's not returning to "America's Got Talent" because she feels the network that airs the show - NBC - discriminated against her son (and his medical condition) by not hiring him for the reality show "Stars Earn Stripes." [NYP]
  • According to recent reports, when Robert Pattinson is not getting wasted at some bar "with some panty droppers," he's reportedly lining up media appearances for shows like "Good Morning America." Sounds to us like someone's on the rebound. [NYDN/Us Weekly]
  • And because no mentioning of Robert Pattinson is complete without a follow-up name drop of Kristen Stewart - seriously, we feel like we'll be talking about this in the year 2089 - check out the latest trailer for her upcoming film, "On the Road." [CinemaBlend]
  • The very definition of abso-freaking-adorable is this photo of Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied getting hitched. [E!]
  • We're starting to think Amanda Bynes either a) needs her eyes checked or b) needs more driving lessons - word has it she's gotten into yet another fender-bender.[TMZ]

We hope Madonna has a thick skin, because fellow music legend Elton John has fired off some awfully barbed remarks.

While chatting with an Australian media outlet, the topic of Madge - who's been having tough times on tour - came up during conversation. According to Sir Elton, Madonna may as well hang it up and head home because her "career is over."
