Michael Jackson has been dead for a year and a half, but has been raking in the cash since. We're talking hundreds of millions of dollars since June 2009.

According to legal documents, MJ had over $400 million in various debts when he passed, but his executors have been working furiously to retire them.

House of Horrors

The singer's estate has made $310 million in the last 18 months, $159 million of which has already been used to pay debts, taxes and other expenses.

Running the King of Pop's life, even in death, is a formidable task.

In addition to creditors, the estate provides "uninterrupted support for Mrs. [Katherine] Jackson and Michael Jackson's children as Michael intended."

In addition to $400 million in debt,MJ's estate had $40 million in liabilities to AEG stemming from the "This Is It" tour, which he was readying for.

Obviously, he never made it on tour after his scared, sedated final days.

Charlie Sheen is hilarious. The guy has absolutely no remorse over any actions, joking in interviews this week about how much we should all praise him for doing such a stellar job while hungover.

But then we're forced to remember: the guy does have two young children. What must they think of their dad?

Denise Richards addressed this question during an appearance on The View that will air today. She said of her ex-husband:

"There are times where his life is more colorful than others, more public than others, and as the kids get older it's a difficult thing... this was a subject I had hoped to talk with my children about as they got older. But it's hard."

Hey, that's what Kacey Jordan said!

But, seriously, how does Richards explain Sheen's problems to Sam, 6, and Lola, 5? She says she uses books.

"There are images and pictures that a child can understand. I don't know what they fully comprehend from these conversations. They don't know what some of these things are. So I do the best I can and it's not easy."

Darn you, Charlie Sheen! You've actually made us feel sorry for Denise Richards.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy turned down The Bachelor in the U.S., but has assumed the leading role in the version of the hit show in his native Ukraine.

The Dancing With the Stars hunk is the star of the inaugural edition of the romance reality series beginning March 17 on the Ukraine's STB network.

Why did he turn it down here - as did Chris Lambton, which ultimately gave us Brad Womack for a second time - but agree to it in Eastern Europe?

"There has never been a show such as this in Ukraine," he wrote on his blog. "That makes me think that a first season would be the most 'real.'"

"I thought about everything VERY long. I know it's hard to find somebody you can connect to on a TV project like this, but nothing is impossible."

"I can't reveal anything, but I am very pleasantly surprised so far."

In the aftermath of Sammi's exit from Jersey Shore last week, Ronnie was down in the dumps. The rest of the gang seemed focused more on absurd pranks.

Despite the title, "The Great Depression" was lighter fare than more recent episodes, with fewer epic meltdowns and more bathroom humor - quite literally.

As always, THG has broken down some of the top Jersey Shore quotes and scenes from the episode in our trademark +/- recap below. Let's get to it:

Old Underwear

THAT'S JUST WRONG: Pauly's discovery was dirty even by JS standards.

Right off the bat for using the show to pitch Britney Spears' new music video. Videos, on MTV? What a concept! Plus 5 in hopes that this pattern continues.

Despite being enraged every second she's around, Ronnie mopes now that Sammi's gone, whining non-stop in an all-out effort to grow a vagina. Minus 19.

Seriously, Jenni could take Ronnie. You can see the disgust on her face. Plus 4.

Sammi breaks down at home. Minus 10 for not making this a Sammi-free week, 'cause she'll be back wearing her one white skirt/black top outfit in no time.

It's very early on season 10 of American Idol, but one thing appears clear: we're in for many weeks of contrasting auditions and artists.

Take John Wayne Schulz and his restrained, collected, acoustic cover of "Landslide." Simple, straightforward, impressive.

Now, compare that to the emotion delivered by Jacob Lusk last night, as this hopeful scatted one moment and soared the next while giving viewers a rendition of "God Bless the Child." He even brought himself to hysterical tears by doing so. Might this be the John Boehner of American Idol contestants?

Watch for yourself:

After weeks of hype, the "Hold It Against Me" video is here.

Britney Spears' latest masterpiece was unveiled last night at 9:56 p.m. before Jersey Shore, in a stunning case of MTV actually playing a music video.

The result? About what you'd expect after all the teaser clips out there, and if you're a fan of Britney Spears, you've likely seen at least some of them.

Basically, she can still dance, she can still look hot, and she can still pay producers a truckload of money for flashy graphics and elaborate sets:

So, does Britney still have it, or is she just an average pop performer subsisting off her name and elaborate marketing machine at this point?

Tell us: What do you think of "Hold It Against Me"?

He's a former recording artist and a professional cowboy. He's also an early American Idol favorite.

During the final round of Hollywood auditions last night, John Wayne Schulz confidently took to the stage, guitar in hand, and dedicated his rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" to his mother, who was in the audience.

He gave it a simple, country spin, earning a brief duet with Jennifer Lopez, as that judge sung along with Schulz for a few seconds. That's always a good sign for any contestant. Watched John Wayne in action and sound off: He has to be among the top contenders at this point, right?

Hollywood treated Stefano Langone, Jovany Barreto and Jacee Badeaux very well last night.

This trio of American Idol hopefuls were featured in the same segment, each impressing the judges with versions of singles such as "You Can Feel It All Over" and "Time of My Life."

As a result, all are a part of the final 60 and all will take to the stage in Las Vegas next week. Check out snippets from each of their performances below, with a warning/apology to our female readers: Barreto keeps his shirt on...

Scotty McCreery added his own unique stylings to Lee Ann Woman's "I Hope You Dance" last night.

No, we aren't talking about this American Idol hopeful's baritone of a voice. We're referring to the made-up verses he uttered as the country singer forgot the lyrics on stage.

Nuts of wonder? Zoo zoo talk??? Perhaps the judges passed Scotty on to the round of 60 jut for making them laugh. Or because he wasn't alone. Ta-Tynisa Wilson messed up the same song. Watch both on action below and don't feel too badly for them: McCreery and Wilson both advanced.
