We're big Chris Brown fans here, but despite how much he rocked the plaza on the Today show last Friday, we couldnt help but chuckle through the whole thing. Not only did his bodyguard get a little overzealous smacking the teen girls hands away around the minute mark, but seeing Lester, Ann and Al rock out while singing "I need you, Boo" at the end was priceless!

Pickler: "But like...I thought Europe was a country."
Is Kellie Pickler Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?Unless she's really good playing dumb, we're gonna have to say no, she's not. In a recent appearance on the hit game show, the country singer was asked what European country Budapest was capital of (which, mind you, left her baffled, considering she thought Europe was a country). When she found out the correct answer, she didn't even, like, know Hungary was a country. Turkey she's heard of, but Hungary, not so much. Good thing for her charity, she trusted her fifth-grade teammate.Watch it now!Paris Hilton Wants to be a Mommy?During a recent one-on-one interview with Ellen, Paris Hilton revealed her secret desire on national television.

Nickelodeon has signed R&B wunderkind Chris Brown to exec-produce a pilot for a reality show about the young dancers on his tour.... Rejecting the American Idol judge's suggested title of "You Did Your Thing, Dawg, But It Was Just A'right for Me," MTV has given the all-clear to an urban So You Think You Can Dance series called Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew.... On Dec. 17, ABC will debut Duel, a six-night game show in which 20 contestants will vie for a whole lotta dough in "matches" that are said to cross trivia questions with poker skills.
