Kris Allen, Adam Lambert
Kris Allen may have won American Idol, but judging by the new Billboard Hot 100, both he and runner-up Adam Lambert are winners.
Idol's Top 2 account for nine debuts on the chart this week, with Allen's coronation song, "No Boundaries," climbing the highest to No. 11. Allen's take on Kanye West's "Heartless" (No. 16) and Lambert's cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World" (No. 19) both cracked the Top 20.
Lambert's "Mad World" put that song on the Hot 100 for the first time ever. Additionally, his version of Sam Cooke's classic "A Change Is Gonna Come" (No. 56) is the ...

George Takei and Brad Altman
The California Supreme Court's decision to uphold the state's gay-marriage ban won't affect George Takei's marriage, but the actor is still unhappy with the ruling.
Although the court upheld Proposition 8, a ballot initiative passed by voters in November that banned gay marriage, the ruling held that the nearly 18,000 marriages that took place before the vote — including Takei's Sept. 14 wedding to longtime partner Brad Altman — are still valid. Takei said the ruling is bittersweet.
"They decided to be indecisive," Takei tells TVGuide.com. "It was a ruling ...

Helio Castroneves won the Indianapolis 500 for the third time in his career Sunday.
The win serves as an exclamation point on the former Dancing with the Stars champ's recent acquittal of federal tax evasion charges that could have sent his career to the pits for good. A jury acquitted Castroneves of most of the charges against him last month, saving him from a six-year prison sentence. The remaining count was dismissed last Friday, according to The Associated Press.
"This is the best month of May ever," Castroneves said in tears after the race in Victory Lane. "Thank you for giving my life back," he said to his racing team owner Roger Penske during a hug.
With the win, Castroneves is one Indy win from joining racing elites A.J. Foyt, Al Unser and Rick Mears as the only to win the iconic race four times. Is breaking the record on Castroneves' mind?

Adam Lambert and members of Queen
If you thought Adam Lambert looked like a natural fit with iconic rockers Queen during American Idol's finale, you weren't the only one.
Hours after it was announced that Lambert was Season 8's runner-up, widespread speculation began circulating that the 26-year-old singer had been offered a job as Queen's new front man. While that's not true yet, guitarist Brian May isn't ruling out the possibility.
"Amongst all that furor, there wasn't really a quiet moment to talk. But [drummer Roger Taylor] and I are definitely hoping to have a meaningful conversation with him at some point," May told Rolling Stone. "It's not like we, as Queen, would rush into coalescing with another singer just like that. It isn't that easy. But I'd certainly like to work with Adam. That is one amazing instrument he has there."
