Transgendered pageant queen Jenna Talackova held a press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred to fire back against Donald Trump and the organizers of the Miss Universe pageant. The group had initially disqualified Talackova from the competition, though they made a statement earlier this week allowing her to participate. Allred said the pageant did not go far enough and needed to eliminate the rule that only allows "naturally-born women" to participate. She went on to say that Talackova "did not ask Mr. Trump to prove that he is a naturally-born man, or to see the photos of his birth, to view his anatomy, to prove that he was male." Trump, as always, kept things classy by calling TMZ Live and saying that, if she were to see them, Allred would be very impressed by his genitals.
Keith Olbermann admitted he screwed up with Current TV — almost — last night when he was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman. "It's my fault that it didn't succeed, in the sense that I didn't think the whole thing through," Olbermann said. He then continued, "If you buy a $10 million chandelier, you should have a house to put it in." Letterman, reminding us of why his contract was extended through 2014 and paving the way for him to top Johnny Carson's late night run, then quipped "You're the chandelier?"
Continuing to ride high after her Super Bowl halftime show, Madonna's MDNA sold 359,000 units — making it her eighth number-one on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and her fifth consecutive studio album to top the charts.
Dan Harmon, creator of NBC's Community, has apologized for playing an angry, profanity-filled rant that Chevy Chase left on his voicemail in front of an audience at an L.A. comedy club. Harmon described his decision to play the message as a "dumb, unclassy, inconsiderate move."
New mom Hilary Duff tweeted a pic of her two-week-old son Luca yesterday, and it has to be one of the most profoundly cute pictures to hit Twitter in awhile.
A clip from next week's episode of Glee has been released online and it features Darren Criss and Matt Bomer singing a duet of "Somebody That I Used To Know." Bomer is playing the brother to Criss's Blaine, and reportedly scored the guest star gig by making a suggestion to series co-creator Ryan Murphy that he use a duet of the Gotye song. Basically we'll just use any excuse to watch a video with Matt Bomer in it.
