Finally, Star Wars Meets Justin Bieber (@JustinBieber)

Gayle King Makes James Earl Jones Recite Lyrics to Justin's Hit, "Baby"

You know the Volkswagen commercial with the little Darth Vader that aired during the Superbowl?  (If not, you can see all of the Superbowl spots here).  I don't know that we can be entirely sure that it was actually a 6-year-old boy in that costume rather than Justin Bieber.

I say this, because two of the biggest fanbases in pop culture came together today in a weird/awesome way via Gayle King of all people.  I've never watched her TV show on OWN, but I've heard her radio show... and I'll keep my opinions to myself as I do freelance work for the company that distributes it, and I like to get paid.

Anyhoo, Gayle is gonna have a viral video on her hands here because she (or her producer) brilliantly had Darth Freakin' Vader (aka James Earl Jones) recite the lyrics to Justin Bieber's "Baby." Enjoy.

EXCLUSIVE: See the ONLY Photos of the World's Largest Gathering of Lady Gaga Impersonators

And Find Out How the Real Gaga Can TRULY Shock Us With Her Next Outfit

Yesterday during E!'s Grammy coverage, they announced that they had broken the Guinnness World Record for the largest gathering of Lady Gaga impersonators.  Two things about this caught my attention.  First, WHEN/HOW/WHY had the record been set in the first place?  And second, where can I see pictures.  I scoured the internet (known in the biz as "Googling"), but nobody seemed to have photos of an event that SCREAMS "take pictures of this carefully chroegraphed mayhem."  Not even E! had posted photos of the event, and it was their event!

But in my biggest coup yet for Hollywood Big Shot, I've managed to get the pictures of the World's Largest Gathering of Lady Gaga Impersonators.  Enjoy!

Wow, those drag queens really rocked Gaga's best looks!  Way to go impersonators!!!

And speaking of Gaga... most of the headlines I read about her egg/pod outfit/entrance have called it shocking.  It's anything BUT shocking.  She's Lady F***ING Gaga, we fully EXPECT her to dress like a crazy person.  If Gaga REALLY wanted to shock us, she's show up in a sensible business pantsuit.

Whoopi Goldberg Partakes in "Take Your Oscar To Work" Day

Also Partakes in "Not Phoning It In Today" Day

Believe it or not, there was once a time where Whoopi Goldberg gave a damn about her work.  She was smart and funny and actually put enough effort into her acting craft to get two Oscar nominations, winning one for Best Supporting Actress in 1991 for Ghost.

But these days, Whoopi sits at the table on The View, where she's barely able to stay awake to pay attention to the guests, and where she acts mildly annoyed by Elisabeth Hasselbeck (if Whoopi WERE paying attention, she'd be FAR more annoyed by her... even Barbara finds it hard to hide her disdain sometimes).  This is what we in the biz call "phoning it in," and Whoopi's clearly placing her call from an AT&T iPhone rather than one on Verizon.

But a recent New York Times piece on the lack of racial diversity among Academy Award nominees has gotten Whoopi off her "phone" and onto her high horse (and she's reasonable to climb up there), because they failed to even mention her Oscar win in the article.  Whoopi actually needs to point out that she was first black woman to win an Oscar in over 50 years when she won for Ghost (which would seem to be a pretty significant detail in an article all about racial diversity at the Oscars).  Then, for emphasis, Whoopi, whipped out her Oscar and set it on the table.

The Times, for their part, has issued a statement about the ommission, but it essentially blames readers for not understanding the angle of the article.  And they wonder why newspapers are failing.

Reporter at Grammys Totally Aguilera-s Her Segment, Now Remixed

L.A.'s CBS 2 Says Serene Branson Did NOT Have a Stroke On Air

It's hard to make fun of Los Angeles reporter Serene Branson, because she may very well have had a serious medical condition unfold in front of everyone's eyes after last night's Grammys.  But, on the other hand, it's easy to make fun of her, because Serene quickly and bizarrely descended into spouting an entire paragraph of pure gibberish.  And she seemed as surprised by the display as we were.  And it's gone viral.  And because it's already been autotuned and remixed.  Both versions are below. (UPDATE: Sorry about the poor quality of the "original." CBS seems to have had the high quality ones pulled from YouTube.)

Christina Aguilera Totally Aguilera-s Her Grammy Performance By Falling on Stage

I May Have Been Wrong About Her Superbowl Performance

Remember the crazy conspiracy theory I posted a week ago where I suggested that Christina Aguilera messed up the national anthem on purpose?  Yeah, I think I totally Aguilera-ed that theory (to Aguilera = to completely and totally botch something), because she just totally Aguilera-ed her big comeback chance at the Grammys by falling on stage.  (And let's not even talk about the way her stylist Aguilera-ed her outfit).  See the fall below.
