It happened this week-ish: Twilight Vampire in his undies, Lost action figures, RIP FOB, Jordan Catalano can't read

[image-1]*After Taylor Swift proved to the world that she can't really sing all that well, at the Grammys last week, her label decided to throw out every excuse known to man on why she was so off-key. It was kinda like a repeat of that whole Ashlee Simpson debacle, though Taylor's crew hasn't blamed acid reflux (yet). My girl, the fabulous and talented Kelly Clarkson, stepped in to tell this Scott Borchetta character what's up. Oh yeah, and she is totally right.

*I had totally forgotten about teen mom Jamie Lynn Spears and her boyfriend/babbydaddy, Casey Aldridge. I certainly did not think that they were still together, if I would have had to actually think about them. As it turns out they were, but aren't now. OK, welp, good to know. See you on Celebrity Fit Club, Casey.

*It's been a big week for movies, what with the Oscars announcing the nominees and stuff. I don't really have anything funny to say about it but like, I can't wait to see the dresses. That's basically it. If you care about who's up for awards, here are some of the nominees and our resident movie guru, Joe Bardi's, take on it.

*According to reports, Jared Leto and his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, were delivered a package with a message they thought was a bomb threat. As it turns out, it was fine, it was not a bomb scare and the package was full of money. Proof that Jordan Catalano still cannot read (see video below for further proof).

*Can't decide between Team Edward and Team Jacob? You love the mysterious and dangerous vampire-type but then there are those abs and that bod. I give you the perfect compromise: "How you doin',  Kellan Lutz in undies?" This blood-sucker is packing some serious... um... abs. All I can say is, RPatz who?

*Lost MEGOs?! When's the next holiday? Valentine's Day? OK, yeah, show me that you love me. I would like the Jack one. Kthanx.

*US Weekly, a beacon of hope in the world of gossip with the most responsible reporting this side of the National Enquirer are shocked that Brittany Murphy weighed an "emaciated" 115 pounds at the time of her death. At 5'3", that puts her in the healthy range for her height... so it was probably the reason she died. At least if we say that, we can still blame her wackjob hubby for her death. I am sure her weight was more of a factor than some silly thing like pneumonia or the insane amount of prescription drugs that were in her home. Yep, healthy weight is the real murderer here.

*Thanks for the memories, Fall Out Boy. (See what I did there? Cuz that is a Fall Out Boy song. Get it?)

After the jump, Kelly Clarkson takes on Tay-Swift's management, the other Spears sister is single, Jared Leto bomb threat and more...
