Madonna get the Glee treatment in April 20′s Madge-ical episode. Then Britney Spears’ manager tweeted his plea to get Spears’ songs performed on the Fox series. And not only has creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed to EW that he’s entertaining the notion of a Spears episode, but he’s also considering one-hour homages to Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, and Courtney Love. But we want to to know who YOU want to hear on Glee, PopWatchers! If it was between these four music superstars, which one would you choose? Maybe you want to see Lea Michele do an a cappella version of Hole’s “Malibu?” Or can you imagine Cory Monteith tackling Billy Joel’s “Piano Man?” Vote below!Last week, we watched

Walmart revealed its new ads for the spring collection of its California-cool line, Op, and their campaigns are best described as Abercrombie and Fitch + celebrities – $$$ – the nudity. Judging by this year’s campaign stars, I’d say it’s quite the step up in star wattage from last year’s ad. Brody Jenner — enough said.
But this year’s lineup includes Glee‘s Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron along with Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr and Twilight‘s Alex Meraz. To fulfill the 90210 quota held last year by AnnaLynne McCord is Trevor Donovan. Now that’s an ad campaign I can get behind!
What do you think of the star-studded ads? And who else wishes Donovan was holding them up on that surfboard?

EW.com, the Avatar director took aim at Beck yesterday during a press conference promoting Avatar’s DVD release. Cameron called Beck “dangerous” and his Global Warming-denying ideology “poisonous.” He also took objection to Beck calling him the “anti-Christ” back in 2007, when Beck was a host on CNN. (“Only a force of pure evil could have directed [Titanic],” Beck opined back then.)You had to sit through a lecture on how bomb-throwing hippies from the 1960s have taken over the U.S. government — did you know that President Obama is part of a vast left-wing conspiracy to grant illegal immigrants the vote? — but towards the end of his show today, Fox’s Glenn Beck fired back at James Cameron. As you may have read on
Well, this afternoon Beck bit back. “The following segment is a Fox television first — it’s Fox News 3-D,” he said, whipping on a pair of cardboard 3-D glasses. “Yes, James, I am guilty. I did call James Cameron the anti-Christ. But only because of the Celine Dion song. Horrific. Really. But the best part is, this guy has carried this joke around for three long years. This guy is making a billion dollars on a Smurf-murdering movie and he’s stewing about a joke that nobody heard on a network nobody watched! It’s time to walk away from the CGI, Jim. Just for a minute. I don’t think he’s just upset with me, though. He’s also upset with you too,” Beck went on, nodding into the camera, at his show’s viewers. “Because you’re a global warming denier.”
As basic cable feuds go, this one doesn’t quite have the seat-of-your-pants entertainment value of, say, George Clooney versus Bill O’Reilly, or even John Stewart versus Jim Cramer. But these are early rounds. Maybe Cameron will take it up a notch tomorrow. If you were Jim Cameron, what would you say to Glenn Beck, Pop Watchers? (Also, if you were Jim Cameron, could we have some of your money?)
Remember Me. A big twist. The kind that makes half the people in the theater go “Wha…?” in unison the moment it hits. Plenty of bloggers have already gone down spoiler road, so we won’t even bother here. Suffice it to say, the last 10 minutes of the story are likely to color your feelings about everything that happened before it. Personally, I thought the movie didn’t need the twist — they could’ve run the credits 10 minutes earlier and I would’ve come out feeling about the same. But I’m betting not everyone agrees with me, right? So let’s get a quick show of hands:In case you haven’t heard, there’s a twist at the end of the new Robert Pattinson movie,

Remember Me twist: How soon is too soon to write about it?
After high profile-stints as the face of luxury labels like Dolce & Gabbana, it was only a matter of time before Madonna stepped behind the scenes to design her own label, and lo and behold, it was announced today that the Material Girl will be launching her very own fashion brand, MG icon, with Iconix Brand Group, Inc., starting with a juniors line for Macy’s this summer.
Why on earth would she start her new design career with a juniors line? Well, the inspiration came from her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes, who, judging by these pictures, has a raging interest in fashion herself. The aptly titled “Material Girl” line will be unveiled this August and include apparel, footwear, handbags, and jewelry priced from $12-40.
A low-priced line bucks the trend of high-end designers starting big and introducing diffusion lines later down the line, so it’s a bit perplexing that Madonna would follow the lead of someone like, say, Jennifer Lopez, whose J.Lo-brand has been at Macy’s for years.
This being the queen of Pop, I would’ve liked to have seen her start out with something a bit more abstract, since she is an artist after all. As December 2008 ads for Louis Vuitton proved, lady M certainly knows how to work her couture.
What do you guys think of Madonna’s venture into the fashion world? Would you buy something with her stamp of approval on it?

Of all the head pieces Lady Gaga has worn (and there have been many), none has been so glitter-tastic — or so easily deciphered, compared to the her abstract pieces — as the bejeweled lobster headpiece she wore on Saturday after the last London concert of her Monster Ball tour.
As weird as that red lace face mask was — and it definitely was — I think the crustacean trumps all other head gear for its sheer, “Say what?” factor. Can she see properly through the tentacles? Do the jewels scratch her face? Was she planning to eat lobster that night in some sort of meta feast? Was she making a symbolic gesture that’s she found her lobster? The questions abound.
Plus, it’s certainly something when the tamest part of an outfit is the see-through plastic with strategically placed tape.
What do you think of Gaga’s lobster piece? What’s your favorite Gaga headpiece?

Leave it to Kevin Federline to let it all hang out — literally. Last night on VH1′s weight-loss realityfest Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp, the former Mr. Britney Spears/rap wannabe furnished shirtless “before” pics of his 232-lb. self, gamely cracking to the judges, “I look like a pregnant man.” (One is tempted to ask, a la Paulie Walnuts, whether the snaps are “before” or “way before.”) Weigh in, PopWatchers (no pun intended): Is this TMI? Are you reeling from mammal toe — or mammary overload? Does the well-fed K-Fed’s choice of camo underpants render a disservice to our men and women in uniform, or out of it? Can fellow Boot Camp-ers Sebastian Bach and Bobby Brown possibly top this feat of show-too-muchmanship? And, most terrifying to contemplate, should such exhibitionism from Britney’s ex earn a “Malibu Gas Station”-style tribute from those pop-fixated noise-rockers Sonic Youth?
When I watch the judges on Project Runway dis a contestant’s design, I sometimes think to myself, “OK, Heidi or Nina, why don’t you try to design a ball gown out of waste materials and surge protectors yourself?” Well, perhaps Klum heard my protests because she’s throwing herself into the designer ring with her own line of maternity clothes—with slightly more traditional materials (i.e. polyester)—that debuts this Friday. The model-turned-host was on ABC’s Good Morning America today to give viewers a sneak peek.
The line is pretty standard fare — stretchy pants and billowy tops — and even includes a more price-friendly line for Motherhood Maternity that incorporates Klum’s hand-painted designs. But the gem of the collection, at least according to Klum, is the unitard, which elicited an “Oh. My. Goodness!” from GMA host Juju Chang, who was pregnant herself two years ago, that was filled with equal parts horror and jealousy.
Klum raves about the comfort of the unitard but, even though I’m not pregnant, I imagine it must be quite a doozy to go to the bathroom with one on. And if that isn’t impractical enough, the line also includes blob-like leopard print that might as well be accessorized with a “baby on board” sign.
If I had to pick, I’d go for the the tamer, if not more boring, floral prints that Klum painted herself.
What do you guys think of the preview? Would you buy the clothes or get them for the baby-bound woman in your life?

Tonight’s George Clooney-organized, multi-network Hope For Haiti Now telethon was a subdued, classy affair, thankfully free of any awkward “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” moments. In all, the two-hour telecast included 19 musical performances, most of which were terrific. I could name two female artists who were a bit out of their league, but since they were singing for charity, I won’t. Instead, I’ll run down what were, in my humble opinion, the 10 best numbers of the night. (You can download them all, by the way, on iTunes.)
10. Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris I confess I’d never heard of Matt Morris before. But after his and Timberlake’s sensitive, almost half-tempo duet performance of Leonard Cohen’s oft-covered “Hallelujah,” I’m a convert. READ FULL STORY
