Amy Winehouse is finally producing some new music. Just not hers.

The train wreck is starting her own label called Lioness Records. No word on whether all signed artists must instantly transform into heroin and sex fiends.

According to Wino's official site, "Amy wanted to create a label where she could sign and work with a small roster of artists that she really believed in."

"Lioness symbolises strength, pride and confidence, and will be a place where the artist is given time, space and opportunity to develop and flourish."

Not that she can finish her next album to save her life, but that's not the point. Amy's label's first signing? Her goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, 13.

Run, Dionne Bromfield. Far, far away.

CE-OH, GOOD LORD: The face of a drug-addled record company executive.

"The first time I heard Dionne sing, I couldn't believe what I was hearing," says Amy, possibly hallucinating or experiencing a traumatizing acid flashback.

"Such an amazing voice. I'm just so proud of her. I'm very lucky to have a record label. I've got all these people I love, and Dionne is my number one."

Blake Fielder-Civil is probably #2. You know she just can't quit him.

We'd say this sounds like a cool endeavor for the troubled star, but we're talking about a person whose "rehab" involves kicking it on a Caribbean island for half a year and getting wasted on just booze and pot instead of crack.

Hopefully her attorney has already started bankruptcy proceedings.

A week ago, we were treated to drama, controversy and egomaniacal outbursts at the MTV Video Music Awards. Last night's Emmy Awards? More low-key.

The Emmys, after all, actually honor creative arts, rather than just throwing a bunch of celebs together under the pretense of doling out made-up awards.

So while there was no Kanye West outburst (though host Neil Patrick Harris quipped that he hopes Kanye loves 30 Rock), there were plenty of highlights:

  • To the surprise of no one, 30 Rock and Mad Men repeated as Emmy winners for Best Comedy and Best Drama, the former winning its third straight.
  • While he did not win Outstanding Supporting Actor for How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris was the best host in years. As Jon Stewart said, "You're doing a great job, Neil .. normally, these things really suck."
  • Quote of the night: "Amy and I are honored to be presenting on the last official year of network broadcast TV." - presenter Julia Louis-Dreyfus
  • She may not have taken home a trophy, but for our money, Sarah Silverman's moustache cemented her as the funniest of the ladies nominated.
  • Inspiration from Outstanding Reality TV Host, Survivor's Jeff Probst: "If you have a dream, dream big, pursue it with a passion. The adventure you're ready for is the one you get. Life is short. Go for it. Thank you."
Alec Baldwin Wins!

Alec Baldwin further cemented his place as the funniest dude on TV by winning Best Actor in a Comedy. He won't be winning any awards for Best Dance Moves, though.

  • Glenn Close (Damages) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) won top drama acting honors in the drama field, while Cherry Jones (24) and Michael Emerson (Lost) were recognized for their supporting, dramatic roles.
  • Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) won Best Actor in a Comedy, while Toni Collette (The United States of Tara) pulled a minor upset in winning Best Actress.
  • Shortly after accepting a well-deserved Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy for her role on the now-axed Pushing Daisies, paramedics were called to tend to Kristin Chenoweth, who had a severe migraine.
  • Jon Cryer won Outstanding Supporting Actor for Two and a Half Men.
  • Justin Timberlake won another Emmy. Is there anything he can't do?
  • They weren't nominated for any awards, but Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester made some of our favorite fashion statements.
  • On the men's side? Wow, that Don Draper sure is a hunk, isn't he?
  • Sultry Dancing with the Stars duo Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff, who recently called off their engagement, performed an exciting number, but fought noisily behind the scenes. There had to be some drama.

Below is a new, high-quality clip of Michael Jackson rehearsing in Los Angeles for his This Is It tour earlier this year. The superstar was to perform 50 concerts in London, England, before he tragically passed away at age 50 June 25.

Footage from Michael's final rehearsals is being compiled into a documentary to be released later this year. A tribute concert is also planned for mid-2010.

Here he is performing "Human Nature" ...

Nicole Richie's bio on her Wikipedia page describes her as a "socialite, actress, author, singer and TV personality," active from 2003-present. We aren't sure how true any of that is, but she turns 28 today. Happy birthday, Nicole!

These days, Lionel Richie's daughter is perhaps best known as a mother herself - she and Joel Madden are parents to Harlow, 1, and Sparrow, two weeks.

Hey, it could be worse than being known as the mom of two of the cutest celebrity babies around, right? Here's a little photo tribute to the birthday girl:

As protagonist Don Draper on AMC's award-winning Mad Men, Jon Hamm can talk his way in or out of anything - including the pants of women in the early '60s.

Mario Lopez does not have quite that much power over the female gender, although the actor who played A.C. Slater on Saved By the Bell does have his fans.

As Tina Fey said when accepting one of 30 Rock's Emmy Awards, without [Saturday Night Live executive producer] Lorne Michaels, she would be nothing, but Justin Timberlake would still be extremely famous and rich.

Timberlake had just won an Emmy for his guest spot on SNL this past year, a deserving honor for the handsome singer, actor and "Mother Lover."

Can he win a fashion clash against Neil Patrick Harris, who went with a white jacket and black bow tie, contrasted with JT's more traditional look?

The How I Met Your Mother star not only scored an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy nod, he was terrific in hosting the awards Sunday.

Will he upend Justin in this fashion face-off? Vote below ...

The 2009 Emmy nominees did not include Gossip Girl.

Two of the CW hit show's stars were present on the award show's red carpet, however, looking as glamorous (and different) as you'd expect.

Some things just get better with age.

Heroes and Entourage? Not among those things.

Kristin Chenoweth and Mary-Louise Parker, though? Wow. At age 41 and 45, respectively, these two actresses continue to amaze with talent and beauty.

Before winning the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for the now-canceled Pushing Daisies, Kristin looked dazzling on the red carpet - literally.

Mary-Louise, meanwhile, did not win Best Actress despite a hilarious array of Weeds quotes, but she won accolades for her one-strapped purple frock.

Troubled actor and America's Got Talent host David Hasselhoff was taken to the hospital Sunday after his daughter reported he had been drinking to excess.

According to TMZ, 17-year-old Hayley Hasselhoff, who was at home with David, called her mother Pamela, claiming that her father was extremely drunk.

A friend of Pamela - who is estranged from David - called 911, paramedics arrived at the family's home in Encino, Calif., and took the Hoff to the hospital.

If our math is right, this would be the 14th time that Hasselhoff has been hospitalized for excessive consumption of alcohol. Dude's gotta get it together.

The Hoff, being filmed during one of his 2007 relapses.

The hospital was supposed to release David later Sunday night. No word yet on whether it did, or if he remains under their care for whatever reason.

The Hoff's reps have yet to comment on his apparent latest relapse, either.

Two cute blondes. Two NBC shows. Two gorgeous gowns.

That's where the similarities end. Katrina Bowden is a supporting player on a show that was just named Best Comedy Series, and whose primary role is to lob occasional funny 30 Rock quotes in the direction of her boss, Tina Fey, and act like an airhead.

Hayden Panettiere is one of the primary characters on Heroes, which is apparently still on the air despite the rampant jumping of sharks in recent seasons.

Both looked great at last night's Emmys, though, didn't they? Unless red on the red carpet is a faux pas, Hayden. Not sure about that. It's hard to see her!
