In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, Janet Jackson is not holding back when it comes to Dr. Conrad Murray, the man she believes killed her brother Michael.

Of Michael Jackson's former personal physician, the target of an LAPD homicide investigation, Janet says: "He was administering ... I think he is responsible."

Dr. Conrad Murray has admitted to administering Propofol, a powerful anesthetic, to Michael Jackson to help him sleep, but claims he didn't kill the King of Pop.

In the interview, airing Wednesday, Janet says Murray, who may face manslaughter or even murder charges, should no longer be allowed to practice medicine.

Of Michael's death, she adds "It's been a tough year ... You have your days where it's just hard to believe. And a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him."

Janet Waves

Janet Jackson is opening up about her brother's tragic death.

She recalled the fateful day of June 25, when she learned her brother passed away. "I was at my house in New York. You know, another day. Another morning."

"Then I get a call ... [my assistant] said, 'Your brother's been taken to the hospital. It's on CNN right now. I called everyone. I spoke to mother. I spoke to my brother Tito. I spoke to my nephew Austin. I spoke to my sister La Toya."

A tearful Janet Jackson added, "I told them to call me when they got to the hospital. And I remember thinking nobody's calling me back, so I tried calling again, and that's how I found out that he was no longer ... I couldn't believe it."

"It just didn't ring true to me. It felt like a dream. It's still so difficult for me to believe. It's, you know, you have to accept what is. But it's so hard. You have to move on with your life. You have to accept what is and I understand that."

When she's not worshiping Lucifer, Britney Spears is always pushing her brand. Today, that venture means unveiling her own iPhone and iPod Touch application.

The app is fittingly named "It's Britney!" and is currently available worldwide at the iTunes App Store for $1.99, which might be $1.99 more than it's worth to you.

With "It's Britney," fans get to the front of the line with all things Britney Spears - all the latest official news, exclusive messages, photos, lip-syncing videos, etc.

Additionally, the app features a "Shake Shake Shake" feature in which Britney says "It's Britney Bitch!" every time the user shakes their iPhone or iPod Touch.

We take it back, we'd pay $1.99 for that in a nanosecond. Although we'd prefer a Jon Gosselin app that says "I'm a douche" everytime you shake your phone.

Here's Britney Spears reading cue cards and teasing her new iPhone app ...

Talking a break from filing frivolous lawsuits, Jon Gosselin flew to Hawaii for the wedding of his reported "good friend," Philadelphia Phillies star Shane Victorino.

Like the Oceanic Six on Lost, Jon's return to the island was bittersweet.

Hawaii was the place he and Kate Gosselin renewed their vows in 2008. A year later, they separated and be began tagging every piece of a$$ in a three-county radius.

While Victorino, a.k.a. The Flyin' Hawaiian, should probably try to acquire some new famous friends, Jon at least didn't cause a spectacle for the first time in memory.

  • Jon in Hawaii
  • Back in Hawaii

PIMPIN' IN HAWAII: Jon Gosselin actually stayed (mostly) out of the spotlight.

The paparazzi managed to get a few shots of Jon, such as the photos above, but for the most part he managed to keep it low-key and have a good time like any guest.

Jon, who is involved in a protracted divorce battle with Kate and a separate legal fight with TLC, who's suing him for breach of contract, probably needs the time off.

Only two episodes of Jon and Kate Plus 8 remain after he pulled the plug on it.

In his countersuit against the network, Jon claims he's too famous to get a real job and that they're keeping him from earning a living. He is suing for $5 million.

Say what you will about her, Lady Gaga is an artiste.

She never does a half-ass job of anything. There are no mailed-in live performances, Gossip Girl guest performances, or even day-to-day public appearances.

Be it in the world of fashion, music or performing live, the rumored hermaphrodite gives 100 percent, 24/7/365. Case in point, her latest ensemble below.

Looking like an art exhibit and/or an arty exhibitionist, Lady Gaga recently performed at the 30th Anniversary Gala of L.A.'s Museum of Contemporary Art.

She's clearly doing her best impression of a piece of contemporary art, which you have to commend her for. Who would even think of or attempt this?

Does it work, though? Vote in our poll below ...

What do you think of Lady Gaga's latest fashion?

Rihanna and Chris Brown debuted their new music videos over the weekend - their first since the highly publicized incident last February in which he kicked her a$$.

In large part because of that, the videos are wide open to interpretation and reading between the lines ... and neither are that good, in our opinion. But you tell us.

Below, Rihanna's first single from her new album, "Russian Roulette" portrays her bouncing around in a padded cell, facing off with a guy offering her a loaded gun.

Wonder what that represents? Check it out here:

As for Chris Brown's new release? Well, let's just say that "Crawl" feels more like a PR move than a music video. Cassie cast to play Chris' "ex" in the video? Hmm.

Does it work for Team Chris? You'll have to see and judge for yourself. Follow the jump to check out Chris' effort and vote on which comeback video is best ...

Lindsay Lohan says that she's never been happier in life.

Recent photos and behavior seem to suggest otherwise.

The gaunt-looking singer-actress-fashion disaster put on a show at Jermaine Dupri and Pascal Mouawad's Nu Pop Movement launch party in West Hollywood.

With messy hair and skeletal frame, Lindsay Lohan was disheveled as she spoke. Inside, she smoked, played with her Blackberry and scored "tons of swag."

It's the Adderall talking.

When given a free watch, she joked about giving it to her estranged dad Michael. Chatting with celebrity gossip photographers later, she slammed her dad again.

"Why don't you go find my dad, he's the one who wants to be in the pictures," she said as the paparazzi did its thing. Funny stuff, but it's clearly wearing on her.

For the love of G*d, look at that photo. Shudder.

Nathan Followill, drummer for the Kings of Leon, married his girlfriend, singer / songwriter Jessie Baylin, Saturday in Wolf Den Farm in Brentwood, Tenn.

Us Weekly has confirmed that the musicians tied the knot, and that wedding guests included Scarlett Johansson (who went to high school with Jessie Baylin).

"The wedding was beautiful. It was a gorgeous, 70-degree day," the band's rep said of the ceremony, which took place in a beautiful, rustic barn.

The reception was catered by local Nashville restaurant Miel. Nathan Followill first met Jessie back at the music festival Bonnaroo in 2006.

Congratulations to Nathan Followill and Jessie Baylin on gettin' hitched!

At least Jessica and Ashlee Simpson have each other.

The no-talent hacks have certainly been through their ups and downs this past year, but one thing they can always count on is support from their family.

Ashlee, who is set to make her Broadway debut as Chicago's Roxy this December after getting fired from Melrose Place, defends Jess in Women's Health.

"My sister has an incredible body. I feel sorry for anyone who would judge her, because she's one sexy lady," the alleged singer-actress says of Jessica.

"It's disgusting that people would say those things."

Jessica Simpson, meanwhile, already returned the favor earlier this month, when she bashed the writers on her sister's former show, writing on Twitter:

"CW catching up on MP. Who writes this crap? i have had bad scripts to work with, but this? thank God my sister is amazing and got you some press."

Packin' on Pounds

Not the best year for the Simpson girls.

Simpson-Wentz tells the magazine that even sudden career shifts like this one don't get her down anymore, especially now that her family is priority.

"[Being married] made me able to share more," says the Melrose star no one on the set liked. "Now Pete and Bronx come first. It has humbled me."

As for her own body image, Simpson-Wentz adds the only person she wants to look good for is herself – and her husband. "Pete isn't worried about stretch marks," the mother of 1-year-old Bronx says. "He always makes me feel sexy."

"There's gonna be a time when I'm way curvier than before, and that'll be sexy too. What defines sexy is not someone's weight. Personally I like curves."

Now that's something we can embrace along with her. Fortunately, we'll be able to see Ashlee Simpson nude (kinda) on Melrose Place before she goes!

First, her engagement to Matt Grant on The Bachelor fell apart after about 16 seconds of dating. Then the Shauna Sand sex tape embarrassed her whole family.

Now Shayne Lamas has been busted for DUI. Girl cannot get a break.

The ditzy blonde star of Leave It to Lamas was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI charges just after 1 a.m. Saturday in Venice, Calif., according to E! News.

After the fact, Shayne Lamas issued the following statement:

"Early Saturday morning, after consuming one drink, I willingly drove through a mandatory check point on my way home with complete confidence of passing."

Leave it to Shayne Lamas to drive drunk.

"However, the breathalyzer indicated that I was over the legal limit of blood alcohol content and was arrested. I take full responsibility for my lack of judgment."

"I strive to be a role model for friends, family and fans and have never nor will ever condone drinking and driving. I apologize for all those I have disappointed."

Shayne was released on bail and is due back in court December 9 for the misdemeanor charge. She also faces two misdemeanor counts of being a PR whore.
