After Elton

So the news on Wednesday was about Abercrombie & Fitch offering to pay the cast of the Jersey Shore not to appear in their clothes. The Situation tweeted that their PR sux, since A&F create a “GTL” shirt obviously from the show. And MTV called it savvy PR, and offered to work with A&F to “leverage Jersey Shore to reach the largest youth audience on television.” I feel dirty and used.

Here are instructions on sword swallowing. Pfft. Like we need those here!

Nicolas Winding Refn says that he’s been told his opportunity to make aWonder Woman movie hinges on how well his remake of Logan’s Rundoes.

Rep. Tammy Baldwin is an early favorite to upgrade from the House to the Senate in Wisconsin. The Victory Fund has said her election is a priority.

Not only is Texas inflicting Rick Perry on the rest of the country, they held a “Mayor for a Day” contest on Facebook in the town of Forney. And 11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez made it her first priority to rename Main Street to Justin Bieber Way.

Exactly how big of asshats do you have to be in the music world to have Hanson dumping on you? Because the “MMMBop” singers say of Kings of Leon “I have a hard time with musicians who act like pricks … The Kings of Leon guys are running some risks. They’re irritating people; you can’t do that too much. Eventually the bad boy image affects fans’ willingness to show up. Their fans will get bummed out.”

An online jihadist is calling for David Letterman’s assassination. While I’d never advocate for something like that, if Paul Shaffer’s piano and microphone were collateral damage, I wouldn’t be upset.

David Tennant is totally open to doing Fright Night 2 if the movie is a success. He also says there was a lot of ad-libbing on the set that might be too racy even for DVD extras.

James Marsters is reuniting with Charisma Carpenter for an episode of Supernatural. They’ll be playing husband and wife, with her being a witch who becomes very unhappy in her marriage. Some are calling itBewitched-gone-wrong.

Fanboys are up in arms over Tom Cruise being cast as Jack Reacherin One Shot. I won’t go into why, but he evidently isn’t a perfect fit for the part.

I’m a little shaky on the format for The X Factorbut it’s being said thatMariah Carey will be the mentor for Simon Cowell’s house of artists. I thought each of the judges mentored their own houses, but I admit to not being sure.

I’m unclear if Mexico City’s Texcoco Park is a concept, or a plan for a massive geoengineering project.The article sounds like it’s a firm plan, but I can’t imagine how you retrofit the city for something like that. I remember being in Mexico City when I was a high school senior and being told that the city, built in a lake bed, was sinking at a noticeable rate.

Congratulations to fashion designer Michael Korswho wed his longtime partner Lance Le Pere in New York Tuesday in a barefoot ceremony on the beach.

Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next month. He wasn’t going to accept the honor, but his daughter insisted.

In talking about Sherlock Holmes 2Guy Ritchie says that Stephen Fry nails Mycroft, Holmes’ wisecracking brother. And Fry even undresses in the film, which should be an interesting change of pace – will we get the full Helen Mirren?
