The domestic agenda of Barack Obama was not the only thing affected by the election of Scott Brown as a senator from Massachusetts.

The politician's daughter, Ayla Brown, has found herself back in the spotlight.

A season five semifinalist on American Idol, Ayla had pretty much faded into obscurity prior to her dad's shocking victory. She had planned to release a new album in April, but her label called the morning after Mr. Brown was elected and said it wanted to move up the release date of "Circles." To January 26!

Fortunately, the CD was complete and Brown can look forward to greater sales than previously expected. She talked about the whirlwind of her career with Entertainment Weekly:

On her American Idol experience: It was positive. I was 17 at the time. I had only played basketball. Never sang in front of people, except for national anthems at local high school games. So being on stage with a live band was a first for me. Of course I was nervous. Of course there were times I felt I had no idea what I was doing. That was the fun part.

On her new album: This CD I’ve had much more of a part in, in terms of the thought process, the lyric writing, music, everything. It means that much more to me because of that.

On her dad's Idol prospects: Uh, I don’t think he would do well at all. I haven’t heard him sing in years. I would be very curious to see how that would go.

Will you purchase Ayla's album?

It's like celebrity gossip magazines and websites are actively engaged in a bet over who can make up the most ridiculous Angelina Jolie gossip item this week.

With this latest rumor - that Angelina Jolie and Lady Gaga were lovers - celebrity gossip has officially hit a new high. Or low, depending on your perspective.

According to Ian Halperin, author of the recent lie bestseller Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, that's precisely what happened.

Jolie, who is reportedly bisexual, Lady Gaga, a rumored hermaphrodite, had a secret rendezvous at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel that lasted all night, he says.

“Angie is obsessed with Lady Gaga,” a source said.

Aren't we all. That definitely confirms the affair!

Just Gaga

This supposed Lady Gaga tryst is not the first time Angelina Jolie has been accused of cheating on Brad Pitt. Heck, it's not even the first time this week!

Last week, In Touch spoke to Anna Kowalski, a housekeeper who worked at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC, who claimed Angelina had sex with a dialect coach.

“The room was a disaster,” Anna said. “There were empty vodka bottles everywhere. The bed was covered with black rubber sheets ... there were sex toys on it.”

This was widely denied, but it was just the beginning.

Then two days ago, four different tabloids unleashed a deluge of reports claiming Brangelina was done for ... and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston are totally back on.

Jolie has previously spoken of her desire to have an open relationship. For whatever reason, Star, Life & Style and their ilk seem determined to tell us she's in one.

Groundhog Day (February 2) is just around the corner, and the misguided folks at PETA are generating pointless controversy by demanding its icon be freed.

That would be Punxsutawney Phil, the affable rodent who emerges each year at Gobbler's Knob to dictate if winter shall continue or early spring commence.

For those keeping score, he's prognosticated six more weeks of winter in 98 of his 112 weather readings - although PETA hopes he won't make his 113th.

The controversial animal-rights group wants to take Punxsutawney Phil away from Gobbler's Knob and give the guy a retirement at an animal sanctuary.

In his place, they are proposing a robot groundhog.

Punxsutawney Phil rules. Groundhog Day is fun. Eat it, PETA!

Gemma Vaughan, PETA's animals in entertainment specialist (really) fired off a letter to Punxsutawney Groundhog Club president William Deeley this week, imploring the organization to forgo the use of real rodents in future Groundhog Days.

Deeley responded in a statement to the Associated Press that the world-famous groundhog is "being treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania."

Furthermore, Phil's treatment conforms to the standards of the state's agriculture department, which visits him at the town's Groundhog Museum annually.

Still, PETA V.P. Tracy Reiman is lobbying for an animatronic Phil, who "would attract new and curious tourists" to Punxsutawney's annual event. Please.

You know what actually attracts tourists? Tradition. You know what might actually help animals receive more ethical treatment en masse? Not this!

Are ridiculous PR stunts really the best way to advance a cause, or are they just out for attention? These people are the Tila Tequila of non-profits.

You tell us, though: I'm on team ...

There's little debate that Super Bowl XLIV will pit the top teams in each conference against each other.

But there's already a great deal of controversy surrounding commercials that will air on CBS during the game. A pro-choice group, for example, is taking extreme exception to the planned Tim Tebow ad on the February 7 broadcast.

Many liberals might have more to shout over now:

CBS continues to stall over a commercial from ManCrunch.com, a gay dating website. The network has told the company that ad space is full, though many spots remain unsold. Said spokesman Dominic Friesen:

"It's clearly a form of discrimination that we're getting the runaround, that we're not being told the truth. Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available - a lot of the companies that typically advertise during the Super Bowl are not advertising this year."

In the 30-second spot, two men are watching the game, reach into the chip bowl simultaneously... and then make out. Watch it below and sound off: Is this a double standard, considering the approval for the aforementioned pro-life ad?

Tila Tequila is good.

You've really gotta hand it to this professional attention-grabber for doing everything she can to sell her fake pregnancy story. First, came the the website announcement. Then, the photoshopped sonogram.

Now, Tila has moved on to phases three and four of her plan: shop for baby clothes and hint at a father for her imaginary unborn child.

The paparazzi-addicted loon was spotted today at Kitson's Kids in Los Angeles. She aptly held up a toddler - as real as the tyke supposedly growing inside her belly - for cameras to see...

Fake Baby Pic

Meanwhile, after initially saying the sperm donor responsible for planting his seed inside her troubled womb was a war veteran, Tila is now teasing that it's a famous rapper who has been in trouble with the law.

Is this all part of her GAME? You tell us. Consider these Tweets from last night:

  • RT: @ihategame To My Unborn child (2pac's voice) <=== Hmmm what ever do you mean by that?? Gee I wonder! Tell me!! haha!
  • RT @skyla79: WTF is @ihategame the father of @officialtila's baby?!!
  • RT @skyla79: WTF is @ihategame the father of @officialtila's baby?!!
  • You guys stop asking me if @IhateGame is the father of my child.....STOP ASKING ME! GO ASK HIM!

Ok, fine. Hey, The Game, are you the father of Tila Tequila's unborn child? Call us!

Rihanna doesn't dwell on the past. She's got the tattoos to prove it.

Along with the Grammy Awards Sunday comes the unfortunate reminder of last year's incident with Chris Brown on the eve of the music biz's biggest night.

But the "Russian Roulette" singer is focusing on the future. To that end, on Ellen today, Rihanna expounded on the latest of her "approximately 13" tattoos.

"It reads, 'Never a failure, always a lesson,'" the 21-year-old said. "Basically, it's OK to make a mistake, just don't make them twice." Words to live by!

A Nice Rihanna Pic

Which, naturally, leads to questions about her current status in the land of love, where she has recently been linked to baseball star Matt Kemp.

"Are you dating anyone now?" inquired Ellen, never one to hold back.

"No, I'm single," replies Rihanna, echoing what she said yesterday.

"Really? What about the guy we keep seeing you with?" asked a surprised Ellen, referring to Kemp, who has been seen frequently with Rihanna.

To which Rihanna simply answers with a laugh. While we would love more info from her, at least she's smiling before the Grammys this year.

Andrew Young, John Edwards’ former campaign aide, confidant and co-conspirator, has made some shocking allegations about the politician in his new book.

Most notably, Young claims in The Politician that he found a John Edwards sex tape, showing the ex-Senator hitting it with his mistress, Rielle Hunter. Blech.

That's scandalous enough, but in an unexpected new twist, reports are surfacing that Young was trying to profit from a sale of the John Edwards sex tape.

“He was exploring options for the tape,” said a source close to the situation. “He had spoken to people about possible financial deals involving the tape.”

Andrew Young says he found the tape in the trash and it was marked “special.” Other sources say he was given the tape by Edwards and asked to hide it.

Either way, the Edwards sex tape remained with Young after Edwards admitted the affair with Rielle Hunter, and Young supposedly explored marketing it.

John and Andrew

Rielle Hunter’s face is never shown on tape, though it is clear John is with a pregnant woman "wearing a bracelet" and a "thumb ring" typically worn by her. Oooookay.

Even more shockingly, today, Hunter won a temporary restraining order Friday prohibiting Young from disseminating the tape, implying he still has the thing.

She has sought an injunction demanding the very "personal video recording that depicted matters of a very private and personal nature" be returned to her.

Who knows if Andrew Young still has the tape or really tried to sell it, but as Edwards' lies began to unravel, he eventually turned on his boss in a big way.

But back in 2007, Young was so trusted by Edwards and believed in him so fervently, he claimed to be the father of Rielle's daughter (who is really John's).

Lying for Edwards used to be his purpose in life. Today on Good Morning America, answering machine messages left by Edwards on his phone were played.

In one, Edwards explains how he might sound different sometimes. Follow the jump to hear John Edwards' conspiring with Andrew Young via voicemail ...

Every American Idol season needs a diva, right?

While it may be early to give Michelle Delamor that label, the rumored semifinalist sounds quite sure of herself.

In a recent interview, this Miami native said she was "destined for greatness and going places." We love the confidence of the 20-year old!

Delamor also dreams of conquering two worlds: music and fashion. In a Miami Herald article, she said of the two passions:

"The moment you step on stage, the transformation is amazing. You can go from crazy nerves to becoming the music. I want to be huge, I want to tour around the world, sing for millions and millions of people.

"But another dream of mine is to have my own clothing line. My style is funky-glamorous."

What else do we know about Michelle? She lists Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill, Pink and Mary J. Blige as musical influences; she's a music major at Miami Dade College-Wolfson; and she has a strong gospel background.

Listen to her belt out a version of JoJo's "If I Wrote a Note to God" below. Think this could be the next American Idol?

Matthew McConaughey might be wearing a shirt in the photo below, but it's still the cutest picture you'll ever see of the actor.

McConaughey has posted the first image of his newborn daughter on his official website, including the simple caption with it: "Our latest family member, Vida Alves McConaughey."

Nadya Suleman and Children

She sure is a cutie, isn't she?

Mother and fiancee Camila Alves is also included in the picture, of course. She debuts as the host of Bravo's Shear Genius on February 3 and says her Vida:

"It's easier with the second child because you know what she'll be like."

Camila's mother, meanwhile, reportedly wants Matthew to put a ring on it. But we're confident that will happen. Until it does, let's just send our best wishes to this gorgeous family.

Following an epically disgusting plastic surgery bonanza that made her more Barbie than human, the Heidi Montag haters are coming out of the woodwork.

Not that they were really in any sort of woodwork, or the latest round of Heidi Montag plastic surgery disfigured her that much more than the previous 12.

But you get the idea.

The gross reality star underwent a staggering 10 operations November 20, and has received a deluge of hate mail and criticism since revealing that fact.

Rumors that she did it as a career move, and that she's getting her mom some surgery for Mother's Day haven't exactly helped Heidi from a PR standpoint.

Negative reaction to her extreme makeover has left Montag feeling down that husband Spencer Pratt has had to step in to cheer her up. What a nice guy.

Sliced and Diced Pretty Hard

CAT LADY: Heidi's new fake mouth hasn't smiled much lately.

“Spencer ordered seven bunches of flowers to cheer up Heidi after she received a letter saying her plastic surgery was against God’s will,” a source said.

“Heidi’s a very spiritual girl, so this kind of criticism really stings.”

She really is. Girl does everything with God as the top priority.

Spencer Pratt may be putting on a happy face, but he isn’t happy with Heidi’s, the source says. “She looks like Cat Lady ... It’s all a little too much."

Indeed.

“Spencer loved how Heidi looked before this surgery. Because she’s still swollen and the surgery hasn’t fully settled yet ... he’s a bit shocked.”
