Well thank goodness for this . . Snooki is NOT pregnant. In a radio interview yesterday, Snooki said, "Does that mean they're calling me fat? I just lost all this weight. That means that I have a belly then. I never said once I was pregnant."

We learned that Adele will perform at the Grammy's and now we can add Katy Perry to the list. This will be her first major performance since her split with Russell Brand. By the way, Katy is developing a 3D concert movie called "Candyfornia" (similar to the ones recently done by the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber and "Glee"). If it happens, it would go to theaters, but it's too early to say when.

Ryan Seacrest's "American Idol" contract is up after this season and that has led to some speculation that he could be leaving the show. He has a lot of things he's already doing, from his radio show to the show on E!, he's launching his own cable channel, he's the executive producer of everything Kardashian, there's even talk that he'll take over for Regis Philbin on "Live!", replace Matt Lauer on "Today" or maybe even be the next host of "X Factor". So, if he were to leave American Idol, who could replace him?? Some people are saying Neil Patrick Harris! OF COURSE! BUT, In an interview with "Access Hollywood" this week, Neil said, "I would not want to do that job at all. I'd rather be a judge on 'American Idol'. That seems like the fun gig." Dang.
