Aside from Andrew Garcia, American Idol fans weren't treated to incredible performances last night, as only 22 contestants received a ticket to Hollywood.

But they were treated to a couple tense exchanges between guest judge Katy Perry and Kara DioGuardi, as the former made herself right at home on the panel.

After Kara talked up the personal story of Chris Golightly, for example, Perry shot back: "This is not a Lifetime movie, sweetheart."

Then, when Kara began singing "I Kissed a Girl," Perry responded: "Please stop before I throw my Coke in your face!"

It was great, entertaining stuff - which made us excited to hear that Katy would actually consider the gig full-time. She told MTV today:

"The American Idol experience was awesome. If I was offered that job as a permanent host, I would ditch my career and take on that career."

She continued: "It's kind of like judging a talent show. American Idol was great fun. It was so easy. I didn't really make anybody cry, but I did tell the truth to some kids that might have needed to hear it."

Of course, Perry knows the hard part is yet to come. She didn't have to make any difficult cuts during Hollywood Week and beyond.

"I guess the pressure gets really on when you start eliminating the number of people that are going through," she said. "Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, and then you've got the final two. That can be kind of tense and stressful."

Still, sounds like Perry would consider a permanent spot alongside Randy, Kara and Ellen DeGeneres next season. Do you wanna see her as a judge?

Ellen DeGeneres turned 52 years old yesterday, but her viewers got the real treat:

Adam Lambert performed his single "Strut" on the talk show, and followed it up by presenting Ellen with a special present: an autographed portrait of himself... and his underwear.

Both items will be put up for auction, with the proceeds going toward relief efforts in Haiti.

“I wore my special Ellen underwear,” he told DeGeneres, as the audience cheered. They might be a little sweaty, but these are up for auction, as well.”

WATCH LAMBERT PERFORM BELOW.

Suddenly, Tila Tequila doesn't seem so crazy...

A Chinese woman that wants to win back her ex-boyfriend is making plans to resemble his ideal woman, Jessica Alba.

According to Fox News, a 21-year-old named Xiaoqing, told The Shanghai Daily that she has met with doctors at a plastic surgery clinic and has "made my decision" to undergo a variety of procedures. The goal of them? To emulate Alba in every physical way possible.

"I'm not only doing it for my ex-boyfriend, but for myself," she said. "I am a psychologically weak person. I want to do something to challenge myself and build a strong personality through it."

The woman will reportedly need eyebrow lifting, eyelid reshaping and nose reconstruction to look like the beauty pictured above.

Xiaoqing told the newspaper that her former flame decorates the walls of his bedroom with Jessica Alba pictures and demanded she do her make-up like the actress, even when she slept. He also gave her a wig for Christmas and demanded it she wore it at all times.

"I love him very much.... that's why I always followed his opinions. I don't want to lose him," Xiaoqing said.

Why would you? The guy sounds like a winner.

Looks like Adrian Pasdar couldn't flee the Heroes set quickly enough!

The actor that played Nathan Petrelli on that critically-lambasted series was arrested early this morning for "failing to maintain his lane," according to police, on the 405 in Los Angeles. He was clocked driving his Ford F-150 truck at 94 mph.

Reports indicate that cops pulled Pasar over around 3 a.m. and smelled alcohol on his breath. He refused to take a breathalyzer and was eventually placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI.

The actor - who is married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines - was taken to a nearby jail. His bail was set at $15,000, but, hey, it could be worse:

He could still be starring on Heroes.

Earlier this week, multiple sources reported that Brooke Mueller was ordered by doctors to rest and relax in order to fight off a recent infection.

We wonder if they have masseuses and spa treatments in rehab.

A Happier Time

According to Entertainment Tonight, that's where Charlie Sheen's troubled wife is headed, as insiders say she has entered a drug and alcohol center in North Carolina.

Mueller was arrested on a DUI charge in 1996 and for cocaine possession in 2001. She was released from the hospital on Monday, where she was being treated for pneumonia.

Legally, Brooke is still barred from communicating with Sheen. A judge will rule on a protective order against the actor next month. Until then, it sounds like Mueller is doing her best to clean up her act and become the best mother she can be to young twins Sam and Max.

We wish her the best of luck with that goal.

** UPDATE: Mueller's attorney, Yale Galanter, says his client is NOT in rehab. He says she's at a facility that helps patients recover from serious illnesses, such as pneumonia.

Take one part Lady GaGa, mix it with a dash of Madonna and toss in some Pink. The result? Burgeoning music superstar Ke$ha.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer explains the origin of her name's spelling, while planning for a huge 2010...

On the year ahead: Let's just pretend the world ends in 2012, I want people to live as if it's 2011 in December. I try not to think too far ahead, because I also feel like I'm trying to do as much as I can to set myself up properly. I put on the best live show, the absolute best live show I can possibly can.

On the irony of the dollar sign in her name: It's so weird, I hate champagne, so there's a song called "Party at a Rich Dude's House" where I went and peed in the champagne bottles and thought it was hilarious. Just kind of being an asshole, really, is what that song's about.

On the name of her album: Animal, the name of the record, it's kind of my steez, I have to say. I named it that because I want people to lose it when they listen to my record and go to the animal part of themselves that they suppress. Society has taught us to suppress certain things and not do certain things.

Tila Tequila has good news and contrived news for celebrity gossip followers. First, the good:

She's going away! The former Penthouse pin-up Tweeted her farewell last night: GOODBYE HOLLYWOOD! I WILL MISS YOU! BUT I HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE 2 DO NOW!

Tequila is referring, of course, to the alleged fetus growing inside her body. She confirmed to blog readers yesterday she's pregnant, though most people with a third grade education or higher doubt the veracity of this news.

Will she actually disappear for longer than it takes to shower and restart her computer? Of course not. But let's enjoy these Tila Twitter-free moments while they last...

Prior to signing off, Tequila claims she sent a photo of her sonogram to Radar Online. How do we know it's real? Because the letters in the corner (ng) are the first two letters of her last name. D'uh!

No way that can be photoshopped...

Tila Tequila Sonogram

You can see a gestational sac in the picture, which is the earliest sonographic finding of a pregnancy. We won't actually believe Tila is knocked up, however, until there's a live baby and a blood test taken.

Referring to plans with Casey Johnson, Tequila wrote on the website:

"We talked about one of us getting pregnant so we can have another baby of our own. We talked about this for a very long time, and we both agreed that I would be the one carrying the baby.

"So that is the reason why I got pregnant. It was for Casey and I, and that is also why I was so devastated when she passed away because now I have our baby in my belly, but she has passed away."

But is Casey really gone? Yes. Still, Tila said she came to her in a dream and:

"She told me not to cry anymore and not to worry. She told me she is in heaven now watching over me and always and forever protecting me and our baby. She then handed the baby over to me, kissed me, and said "I love you T, please don't cry anymore! Just take care of our baby.'"

What a sweet thing for a fake fiancee to say, don't you agree?

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart would have turned 254 years old today if he were alive.

The Austrian composer is responsible for over 600 pieces and is often cited as an archetypal example of the Classical style of music.

As Mozart's career went on, he grew to specialize in chromatic harmony that was rare for his era. In 1769, he was honored as the concertmaster of the archbishop and was knighted by the pope in Rome. Not even Taylor Swift has accomplished those achievements!

A father of six, Mozart wrote one of his masterpieces, "Die Zauberflöte," in the last year of his life. He passed away from mercury poisoning (look out, Jeremy Piven!) while being treated for syphilis.

Send in your posthumous birthday wishes today!
