While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Kanye West - yes, that Kanye West - is said to be the newest contender for a job as a judge on "American Idol." This has nothing to do with Mr. West - we'd have the same reaction if they said Taylor Swift was in the running - but honestly? We think the "Idol" rumor mill is just *&%^(*$ with us now. (Fox, for what it's worth, isn't commenting.) [TMZ]
  • Taylor Swift, meanwhile, went off on a graveyard visit with beau Conor Kennedy. The word is that they went to visit his mother's grave, which to us spells "this is getting serious." [GossipCop]
  • Kristen Stewart - maybe showing that she's still got it, and/or has no breakup ice cream bloat? - went with the bare midriff route for her first appearance post-Stew Scandal. [PopSugar]
  • If that was an attempt to catch Robert Pattinson's eye, ol' Stew might have some competition. Kate Upton admitted to Ryan Seacrest that she's got a bit of a crush on R. Patz, vampires be damned. (Ha!) [RyanSeacrest.com]
  • If you still haven't thrown Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes a divorce party, now's your last chance. The couple has made their split "official" official. [E!]

      On the contrary, that is one loathsome individual, f u g l y on the exterior and rotten rancid inside. I will never watch that show again and this show does not come on any of the five televisions in my house. You are exiled, P O S. Persona non grata, exiled, banned, nonexistent. Keep your ugly mug out of my face.

    I wish Ol Dirty was still with us. I'd actually watch Idol if he were a judge.

    If Kayne West is an idol judge, "you know who" will be in the audience every time. I really don't care who the judges are, it's still up to the voters. If they would only change the # of votes everyone is allowed it would be a bit more fair, ya know?
