Taylor Swift's new album filled with confessions

Taylor Swift doesn't talk about her personal life in interviews, but perhaps that's because all one really has to do is listen to her music.

Her third album, "Speak Now" arrives in stores October 25. Swift said during a UStream live chat with fans that the title of the album expresses volumes about its concept and theme.

“There have been a lot of things that have happened in the past two years that I have been dying to write about,” she said. “Each song is a different confession to a different person.”

Kristin Chenoweth gets a little dirty on Letterman

Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth was nothing short of adorable on the “Late Show with David Letterman” Tuesday night.

But she did get a little dirty as she chatted with Letterman, although it wasn't on purpose.

When discussing her love of Starbucks and the power of Twitter, Chenoweth let the "past tense of the word twit," as TV Squad so helpfully put it, slip  - but the misused word was quickly bleeped out.

'The Hills' = not real. Oh, you didn't know?

Much like the episodes in the past six seasons of MTV’s “The Hills,” nothing really happened in the uber-hyped finale. But honestly, did you expect anything different?

The ending - where the camera pans out on Brody Jenner, who had just said “goodbye” to Kristin Cavallari, to reveal a Hollywood lot and a fake backdrop - was the acknowledgment that we have all been waiting for: The drama and shenanigans of the past six episodes weren't entirely true.

But again, did you expect anything different?

Jennifer Hudson: I was secluded from everything

In September 2008, Jennifer Hudson was on top of the world with a Grammy, a Golden Globe and a debut album under her belt, not to mention a handsome man in her life.

But less than a month later her world came crashing down with the shocking deaths of her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew. The actress opened up about this tragic turning point in her life for the first time last night during her “Behind the Music” special on Vh1.

“It was all like a blur, it was surreal. It was like I was outside myself,” Hudson said, adding that she spent two weeks straight inside of her room. “I was secluded from anything that was going on.”

BET Awards viewers split on Brown's performance

Chris Brown’s tribute to Michael Jackson performance at the BET Awards Sunday night has left viewers emotional to say the least. But everyone’s also fairly divided as to which emotion that is.

While most people believe Brown’s vulnerable breakdown onstage in front of millions was sincere, others are appalled by the public’s willingness to forgive and even feel sorry for a man who received a felonious charge for beating his ex-girlfriend Rihanna a year ago.

And then there are the people who are outraged at the people who were appalled — and on and on it goes.

Night of the comeback on the BET Awards

Between Prince's Lifetime achievement award and Queen Latifah running the show, there was plenty of royalty at last night's 10th anniversary of the BET Awards. But in the midst of the performances of accolades, the stage was also set for a few big names to make their comebacks.

Jermaine Jackson announced the first return of the evening when he introduced the tribute to his late brother, thanking everyone for their love and support over the past year. He added, “There is one tribute performance we have yet to see…here he is.”

Chris Brown was poised behind the curtain, looking like the silhouette of Michael Jackson himself. Once he came out, there was a palpable moment of tension so strong, it could almost be felt through the TV.
