The live shows on American Idol haven't even kicked off yet and already there is drama. Simon Cowell addressed reports of arguments between he and Ellen DeGeneres, who he'd like to replace him next season and how much he really misses Paula Abdul.
1. Who does he think is going to win? Cowell is all for a woman being crowned the next Idol this season. "We've had a few years now of guys winning the show and I would say there is definitely a better chance of a girl winning the show this year, certainly than last year," he says. "I'd love to find a Taylor Swift, somebody who's relevant rather than just a contest winner."

It looks like Perez Hilton just rolled out of bed. No, literally.
The celebrity blogger pairs his best Mickey Mouse nightshirt with a brown man purse and some sneakers. Pants? Who needs pants? (His pasty white legs, that's who.)

Perez Hilton has filed a lawsuit against the Black Eyed Peas' manager accused of assault.
The celebrity blogger, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, has sued Liborio "Polo" Molina for battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to the Associated Press. Hilton's suit aims to protect his right to free speech and claims that Molina attacked him over...
Perez Hilton, John Mayer
Perez Hilton says he's "extremely bothered" that some people aren't sympathetic to his claims of being physically assaulted.
"I have been extremely bothered by the public reaction to my assault. Violence should never be condoned with such statements as, 'It's Karma' or 'I don't believe in violence, but...,'" Hilton said in a posting to his website. "[S]everal television and radio shows [have] echoed the sentiment, 'He had it coming.' Would they have said the same thing if I was a woman?"
"No one 'deserves' to be a victim of violence," he added. "No one 'has it coming.'"

Will.i.am, Perez Hilton
The Black Eyed Peas' manager was charged with assault after Perez Hilton accused group leader will.i.am and his entourage of assaulting him.
Liborio Molina, 36, turned himself in Monday morning and was charged with one count of assault, Toronto police constable Tony Vella told TVGuide.com. Molina, who goes by the nickname Polo, is due in court Aug. 5.
Vella said the victim in the incident, who he said he could not identify, sustained minor injuries.
The charge stems from a run-in that occurred ...
Perez Hilton, Carrie Prejean
Miss California says she has no regrets about her statement against gay marriage when Miss USA judge and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton asked her about the hot topic. But she does admit it hurt her chances for the crown.
Carrie Prejean, who was runner-up to winner Miss North Carolina, Kristen Dalton, in Sunday's pageant, told Fox News her stomach sank when she first heard she had picked Hilton's question. "I had a gut feeling. I knew he was controversial, and so was the question. Out of all the topics I studied up on, I dreaded that one, I prayed I would not be asked about gay marriage. If I had any other question, I know I would have won."
The beauty queen insisted she wasn't going to give a politically correct answer just because she was on national television (click here to watch). As for sticking to her beliefs, Prejean told Billy Bush, "I feel like I won ...

Er, try to think of it this way: A "gossip guy" is crossing over to the CW's Privileged.Perez Hilton, he of "Celebrity Juice, Not from Concentrate" notoriety, will put in an appearance in an episode of the charming (if undersampled) freshman dramedy, TVGuide.com has learned. In Perez's episode, slated to air Nov. 11, billionheiresses Rose and Sage are called upon to sing at the opening of a red-hot nightclub. There, on the red carpet, Hilton meets-and-greets the teens perhaps only to ask if either of them has John Mayer's digits. Matt MitovichRelated: Mega Buzz: Got Privileged Scoop? Scoop!

As I expected, Kathy's trip to the U.K. was a nonstop laugh fest. Didn't it seem like there were more scenes with Kathy narrating than usual? The more the merrier, I say. I love when Kathy gets tips from experts in the field of wherever she is heading, and this time she got advice from some of today's best British comedy whizzes. Could Ricky Gervais have looked any more uncomfortable? You could tell he wanted to play the politically correct card, especially when he freaked out that Kathy was dissing Oprah ("the most powerful woman in the world"). You knew Kathy was in the wrong place when Ricky mentioned how he wasn't a fan of media whores (as Kathy looked at the camera and pointed to herself). You've got to give Ricky credit for being a sport. Luckily, Kathy was able to make Ricky legitimately laugh a few times.Graham Norton seemed like he was having more fun with Kathy than Ricky. She certainly chose the right Pied Piper to walk through the gay-populated Old Compton: "Just being w...

E! Entertainment announced on Friday a series that will follow around Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr, whom you perhaps better know as hip-hopper Snoop Dogg.

Per the Reporter, VH1 is said to be ordering six episodes of What Perez Says, a still-being-formulated series fronted by celebrity blogger Mario Lavandeira (aka Perez Hilton).
