Everyone together now: USA! USA! USA!

The women's gymnastics team took to the mat, the balance beam and the vault today in London and left absolutely no doubt in the minds of spectators or judges: they are the best in the world.

Team USA

The quintet of Jordyn Wieber, Gabrielle Douglas, Alexandra Raisman, Kyla Ross and McKayla Maroney EASILY captured the Gold Medal a few moments ago, destroying second place Russia by five points. The U.S. squad finished with a total of 183.596.

The victory ought to be especially sweet for Wieber, who was left in tears on Sunday after she failed to advance to the final round of the individual competition.

America last took home the top prize at the 1996 Games in Atlanta. Stars and stripes and perfectly stuck dismounts forever, citizens. Stars and stripes and perfectly stuck dismounts forever.

Amid reports that Emma Watson was in discussions for the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the Internet got all sorts of excited.

For no reason.

Despite rumors linking her to the hotly-anticipated project, the Harry Potter cutie says she is not in negotiations to star, nor has she even read it.

“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing,” she said.

“There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call or expressed interest. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - I never even saw a script!”

She adds that even some friends and family asked her about Fifty Shades of Grey since so many different "news" items popped up online.

Her response to that: “I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are 3-4.”

So no Emma Watson as Ana Steele. But you can see her in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring and Darren Aronofsky’s Noah soon.

Lindsay Lohan's sex scene in The Canyons, which co-stars porn actor James Deen, came with an interesting caveat that viewers of the film will never see.

The actress was hesitant, according to TMZ, to shoot the steamy scene, but agreed after the crew filming the romp fulfilled an very unusual request.

What was it? That everybody take part! Sort of.

Lindsay Lohan Boobs Picture

The scene showing Lindsay Lohan nude (or at least topless) made her so unsettled that she made every one of the 10-man crew strip down to boxers.

The crew was hesitant at first, but eventually obliged, stripping down and preparing for the scene in their underwear. After that, things went great!

One would think that Lindsay Lohan, whose Playboy photos were among the most-viewed in the magazine's history, would be totally uninhibited.

Then again, one would think a lot of things about Lindsay Lohan that aren't true. Girl has a tendency of defying logic ... as well as many, many laws.

In any case, you can see her boobs, if you're into that sort of thing, in the new movie, due out next year. This concludes today's most pointless movie news!

Brandi Chastain has responded to Hope Solo's Twitter criticism of her recent commentary for ESPN, defending her comments as part of the job.

Chastain, who rose to fame during Team USA's 1999 World Cup win, pissed off Hope with her critique of America's performance at the Olympics.

Specifically, Chastain said defender Buehler actually needs to improve on her defense, a comment she stands by as both objective and honest.

Brandi and Hope

Chastain said in a statement: "My only comment is I am in London to cover women's soccer for NBC in an honest and objective fashion, and that is what I have done, and will continue to do for the rest of the tournament."

Solo, who turned 31 yesterday, said "it's too bad we can't have commentators who know more about the game" and told Brandi to "lay off commentating about defending and goalkeeping until you get more educated."

If Solo's comments have been any distraction to the team, you wouldn't know it. They're on the verge of beating North Korea to improve to 3-0.

Slamming NBC's coverage of the Summer Olympics has become as much of a sport these days as swimming, archery or basketball.

The network is not airing many key events as they happen. It's even spoiling its very own primetime tapings by announcing the winner of various races earlier in the day. It's a mess all around.

But Jon Stewart has found a different reason to go off on NBC: its decision to cutaway from an Opening Ceremony tribute to the victims of the 7/7/05 bombing in London... in favor of an interview between Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps.

“You wouldn’t air a six-minute tribute to the rest of the world’s terror victims? Because the world’s most overexposed land-based mammal had a chance to speak to the world’s most overexposed water-based mammal?” Stewart asks in the clip above

NBC has defended the decision by noting that it tailors the Olympics for an American audience, giving Stewart an easy target, considering the woeful ratings that network has endured for years:

“You’re NBC! You don’t know how to tailor television for an American audience!”

Point, Jon Stewart.

The Jackson family feud has simmered down somewhat, but relations are still icy as four of Michael's siblings are now banned from their mom's house.

Michael Jackson's kids Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson - subjects of a bizarre custody feud - are currently staying at Katherine Jackson's L.A. home.

The kids' cousin and temporary guardian, T.J. Jackson, has been advised by lawyers for the Michael Jackson estate on who should not be allowed in.

As such, Jermaine, Randy, Rebbie and Janet Jackson have been 86'd.

Janet, Jermaine

T.J.'s lawyer Charles Shultz says he's instructed the security team accordingly and his actions are "in compliance" with a judge's orders, not arbitrary.

Those on the not-allowed list were either present on July 23 "or in some way participated in the events surrounding that date," Shultz stated.

It was then that Jermaine, Randy and Janet Jackson arrived at Katherine's home and allegedly tried to physically remove Prince, Paris and Blanket.

Randy, Jermaine, Janet and sister Rebbie Jackson have been accused by some of being motivated by money to separate Katherine from the kids.

Michael's will, which left his estate to his children and provided an ample allowance to their guardian (Katherine), obviously stands in their way.

Since Michael's death in 2009, Katherine Jackson had been receiving a monthly allowance of $86,000 as guardian of Prince, Paris and Blanket.

For the time being, that sum goes to T.J. Jackson.

In awesome news, a Westboro Baptist Church protest was overshadowed Friday as a horde of "zombies" arrived to counter the radical group's efforts.

Demonstrators dressed as the undead swarmed a DuPont, Wash. military base that the infamous Kansas-based church was in the process of picketing.

After hearing that Westboro planned ta protest at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, south of Seattle, 27-year-old Melissa Neace decided to mobilize her own.

"We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at," Neace said. Mission accomplished ...

She called her Facebook group, Zombie'ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis, "the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful."

About 300 counter-protesters showed up in varying degrees of zombie garb, far outnumbering the visibly overwhelmed picketers from Westboro.

"I think that their message is very hateful, and Jesus was not a hateful person. He loved everybody," one of the counter-protesters told KIRO.

While it is unclear why Westboro Baptist Church targeted the DuPont military base for its latest effort, the group frequently pickets military funerals.

The group, whose protests are legal under the First Amendment, believes war deaths are God's punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality.

Because they can't legally be removed from the premises, counter-protests like the DuPont zombies took part in are becoming increasingly popular.

Earlier this month, thousands of people in red shirts formed a "human wall" around a fallen soldier's funeral to block the anti-gay protesters.
