Yes, Paula Abdul really is out of The X Factor.
While no one doubted the veracity of this morning’s report – which detailed the ousting of Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones – the singer herself had not spoken out about the decision until now.

After petitioning the studio, both Cooper and GLAAD were able to convince Universal Studios to remove the offensive scene from the movies trailer.
In the original trailer Vince Vaughn is heard saying:
“Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars … are gay. I mean not homosexual gay, but you know, my-parents-are-chaperoning-the-dance gay.”

Queen Latifah is on Team Chris Brown.
The star’s performance at the 10th Annual BET Awards Sunday, which she hosted, was “amazing, just amazing,” she raves. “Not only was it a knockout performance, but his heartfelt emotion … you can’t plan that, you can’t write that, it’s just truth.”
Fans have since argued what the truth actually is – specifically whether Brown’s Michael Jackson tribute on stage was genuine or a shameless attempt to exploit the late King of Pop’s legacy for some badly-needed positive PR.
The Queen says it’s time to forgive Chris.

Kevin Connolly won’t only be acting this season on Entourage this week he stepped behind the camera to make his directorial debut.
According to sources on set, Connolly is such a perfectionist that he made the cast stay up late, re-shooting several scenes, even though the other film professionals thought the first takes were great.
Crew members say Connolly “is an extreme perfectionist” and that the actors became a bit restless at his constant scene re-shoots.
“Everyone was getting annoyed because there was no reason it should have taken that long to shoot.”
