If your hypocrisy detector hasn’t stopped beeping all day, it’s probably BRISTOL PALIN’S fault. Check out what she had to say in response to PRESIDENT OBAMA’S support of gay marriage. She wrote a blog that was actually directed at Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia, because of their supposed role in helping their dad’s position on same-sex marriage “evolve”. As you probably heard, Obama said his daughters have friends with same-sex parents. So Bristol said, quote, “In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that . . . as great as her friends may be . . . we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother / father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of ‘Glee’.”
The Parents Television Council recently demanded that advertisers boycott “America’s Got Talent” because they were concerned that having HOWARD STERN on a primetime family show would RUIN OUR CHILDREN. Well, Stern was everywhere yesterday promoting the season premiere, which airs Monday . . . and naturally, he addressed the PTC’s outrage. He said, quote, “I think it’s kind of silly of anyone to say, ‘Gee, we’re against Howard on the show,’ and they haven’t seen the show. But he isn’t FLOORED that the PTC would be concerned. In fact, even he was surprised NBC was interested in bringing him onboard. Howard says (quote) “NBC should pay [the PTC] millions of dollars. The more they keep issuing the statements, [the more] it makes me seem more interesting and controversial.” For the record, the producers LOVE the hire. One of them said, quote, “[He's] a controversial figure, but he knows he’s here to do a job, which is to find talent that’s going to amaze people. He’s the closest [thing] to SIMON COWELL that I’ve ever met.”

CONAN O’BRIEN will be a guest on “The Late Show with David Letterman” next Thursday. It’ll be his first time on the show in 13 YEARS. Obviously, we can expect some jabs at JAY LENO . . . since both Conan and Letterman have lost gigs on “The Tonight Show” to Leno. 20 years ago, Leno was brought in to replace JOHNNY CARSON when Letterman was expected to get the job . . . and in 2010, NBC basically pushed Conan out after seven months when Jay decided he didn’t want to retire.
Someone actually combed through SAMUEL L. JACKSON’S Twitter account . . . which he started eight months ago . . . and counted all the different ways Sam has spelled “mother[effer]“, or close approximations of it.And this person counted 57. The list is MIGHTY impressive….CHECK IT HERE
BLINK-182 has canceled some shows because drummer TRAVIS BARKER had to undergo an emergency procedure. There were some people freaking out thinking it was something REALLY serious…..but you can relax…..it was just a tonsillectomy. Travis Tweeted, quote, “My throat still feels like I’m swallowing broken [effing] glass. Looking forward to this being over with . . . [it's] been a pain but green tea ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner is the jump off.” He’ll be fine. He survived a PLANE CRASH. He can handle a tonsillectomy.
LIMP BIZKIT says their next album will be called “Stampede of The Disco Elephants”. Well, at least it’s better than “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water”. There’s no release date yet. But it’s supposed to be out sometime this year.
WWE superstar JOHN CENA has filed for divorce from his wife Liz. They were high school sweethearts, and Liz has hired the same lawyer who helped LINDA HOGAN take HULK to the cleaners.
