Is this thing still on? The only way to save the My Violent Torpedo of Truth show would be to showcase Charlie Sheen's message with the talent of local acts...
Generally speaking, when a celebrity writes a book, we shrug and feel sorry for everyone who purchases it. That's because celebrity books are usually egocentric cash-ins trying to make it seem like these characters on TV are less one-dimensional than we think. That said, Tina Fey's book migh ... More >>

Before we get into the whole Free Scooter thing, which is mind-blowing on a couple levels and takes a little explaining, let's take a second to think about Justin Bieber, who is probably a stranger pop star than Lady Gaga.
