Madonna, W Cover
Madonna's got a new boy toy, and he's predictably young and naked.
The 50-year-old Madge, who is newly divorced from Guy Ritchie and has never, ever tolerated rumors of a hot new relationship to grab a little spotlight, appears in various stages of undress in the March issue of W magazine with 22-year-old Jesus Luz. The 46-page spread features the duo making out, Madonna lying on top of Luz, and Luz standing wet wearing only a towel.
The photos were taken by Steven Klein in a hotel in Rio de Janeiro in December. Madonna and Luz first met ...

Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger
Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger and the US Airways flight 1549 crew have been making headlines ever since they safely landed a jet with 155 people in the Hudson River. But their first television appearances since last month's crash served as a poignant reminder that the plunge into the icy water was more than some Hollywood fantasy.
"It was the worst, sickening pit-of-your-stomach, falling-through-the floor feeling I've ever felt in my life. I knew immediately it was very bad," Sullenberger told Katie Couric during his 60 Minutes interview on Sunday. "I knew immediately that this, unlike every other flight I'd had for 42 years, was ...

Digital TV Transition
Congress may have voted to delay the digital TV transition until June 12, but that doesn't mean that some broadcasters can't turn off their analog signal on Feb. 17, as originally planned.
Don't worry — if your local broadcaster is planning on pulling the plug before the summer, you will know about it, according to the Federal Communications Commission. On Thursday, the FCC issued a public notice that set some ground rules for those who want to switch to a digital-only signal.
"Broadcasters that want to discontinue ...
The NFL just can't get enough of American Idol alums.

Jessica Alba's post-baby body may have looked great in recent calendar shots, but she's willing to share one of her tricks.
"I wore a girdle," Alba says in the March issue of Elle. "Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist — any kind of band or girdle works."
