Simply put, Casablanca is the greatest movie in cinematic history.
The rankings finally concluded today with a final three of Vertigo, Taxi Driver and the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman classic that “continues to compel every new generation that comes along,” according to the site. Why?
“Because it is equal parts timeless romance and war drama, whose themes could not be more universal, regardless of the era.”
That’s lofty praise. Do you agree with the ranking? IsMore >
Is there any doubt now that James Durbin is a rock star?
The American Idol finalist started his Elton John cover (of “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting”) in the crowd last night, eventually making his way on to the stage, belting out the lyrics – and leaping off the piano just as it caught fire.
A bit of a gimmick? Sure. But entertaining and unexpected, as well.
Randy actually summed James up well with the following critique after the quasi rock concert: “You enjoy yourself; that’s the greatest thing about any performer performing.”More >
During a tour stop in Manchester, England last week, Willow Smith was greeted by a surprise guest and an unexpected request: more cowbell!
Indeed, Justin Bieber jumped up on stage during a rendition of “Whip My Hair,” pounding this unusual instrument and getting into it like Will Ferrell in arguably the greatest Saturday Night Live sketch in history.
Jaden Smith also joined in the fun, which led the following Tweet from Willow: “My big brother’s Justin and Jaden pranked me on stage tonight…#payback!!!” (Willow is opening for Justin on the European leg of his tour.)

Charlie Sheen is taking his firing pretty well.
That is, if one can define “pretty well” as climbing to the rooftop of a building, wielding a machete and comparing oneself to Martin Luther King, Jr.
With Natalie Kenly by his side, Sheen waved to screaming fans and paparazzi members yesterday while standing atop the roof of concert promoter Live Nation’s building in Beverly Hills. Asked how he was doing, Sheen quoted the civil rights activist and said:
“Free at last! This is the greatest day of my life.”
Why was he meeting with Live Nation at all?More >

For his latest music video, Kanye West receives a little help from his friends. Fortunately, Kim Kardashian isn’t one of them.
Directed by Jake Nava, the video for “Monster” features Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Justin Vernon. Says Ross of the female rapper’s role in the following single:
“That was the day Nicki Minaj earned my respect as a lyricist. Before that day she was a great entertainer, but for me to get in the studio with my own two eyes and see her write her verse, I knew that was gonna be one of the greatest verses of this year.”More >
“Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema’s distant future,” while adding, “I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross More >
In a new interview, David Archuleta opens up on a number of topics. Among them:
- He has “never been in a relationship.”
- He’d consider an appearance on Glee.
- He’s excited to turn 20.
Below, we’ve excerpted a number of quotes from this adorable singer and his conversation with Pop Eater:
On what he wants for Christmas: To be able to give back, that’s where the most, the greatest, the best feelings are, even if it’s just a visit to show you care about people. That’s what the Christmas spirit is about: caring about other people.More >

Kanye West finally joined Twitter yesterday.
Upon hearing this, we had two thoughts:
- How was Kanye not on Twitter already?
- It’s only a matter of time until Taylor Swift’s account gets hijacked and Kanye’s is proclaimed the greatest Twitter account of all time! OF ALL TIME!
Just kidding. Kanye’s entry into the Twitter-verse began with this simple, boring declaration: “Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley.”
But then: “Lol I spelled Silicon wrong ( I guess I was still thinking about the other type of silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : ),” Yup, he’s definitely arrived.
What do you get the woman that has already received the greatest gift she could ever ask for, endless media attention from a contrived marriage?
Such is the dilemma the THG staff faces today, as Khloe Kardashian turns 26 years old and the only present we can think of for her is a bikini wax appointment with an actual professional.
Perhaps we could also order a hit on Vanessa Bryant.
As we continue to rack our brains, we’ll post a photo montage in honor of this talentless reality star and leave the floor open to readers: send in your birthday wishes to Khloe now!

In December 2007, Jennifer Love Hewitt lashed out at critics that mocked her bathing suit-clad body. She admirably said at the time:
“To set the record straight, I’m not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image. A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.”
True, inspirational words.
Now, in the latest issue of People, the actress says she wants to urge young women to not focus on their weight, saying:
“When I meet young girls, I’m always like, ‘Just do me one favor.’ Love what you look like rightMore >
