Barack Hussein Obama II, the current President of the United States, turns 49 years old today. Happy birthday to our country's 44th Commander-in-Chief!

Since his historic election in November 2008, Obama's White House term has produced significant accomplishments amid impossibly high expectations.

It has also led many, even those who support him, to believe he's not doing enough. His critics see him taking the U.S. in the wrong direction entirely.

No matter how you see it, you most likely have a strong opinion in what have become turbulent, critical times for our nation. But we are all Americans.

Let's put aside our differences and embrace our differences of opinion. We love a spirited debate, but we can do so more respectively and constructively.

Regardless of your political affiliation, we can all wish the man a very happy birthday! But while we're on the subject of his controversial first term  ...

Is Barack Obama doing a good job as President?

... on 11/16/12.

Get the tissues out, Twilight Saga fans. The franchise has announced its end date.

The second installment of Breaking Dawn will be released on November 16, 2012, almost a year to the day after the first half of the final film hits theaters.

While this is emotional news, remember: the books, movies and characters will live on in our hearts forever... and forever... and forever.

"It's over. I broke up with him." - Bristol Palin on Levi Johnston

After shocking most observers, her own family included, by getting back together with the father of her 19-month-old son, the daughter of former GOP V.P. candidate Sarah Palin confirms that she's broken it off with the dude again.

They are now 0-for-2 at the whole engagement thing.

Bristol Palin says that the relationship soured on July 14, the very same day they announced their marriage intentions to the world via Us Weekly.

As luck would have it, that was the day she learned:

  • That he might have fathered a baby with Lanesia Garcia (he didn't)
  • That Levi may also have been putting it to Briana Plum (unclear)

BRIEFLY HAPPY TIMES: Failed engagements of 2010 and 2008, respectively.

In any case, Palin tearfully told People about feeling heartbroken, humiliated and trapped while Levi acted cool. "There was no remorse," she says.

"The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family," she says. "He's just obsessed with the limelight and I got played."

That will do it every time. Bristol Palin has already moved back into her parents' home in Alaska. For her part, Sarah Palin said in a statement:

"I wish for Bristol to be able to move forward in life with her same forgiving, gracious, optimistic spirit, but from henceforth she'll know to trust but verify. Bristol is strong, she is independent, and she knows what is right for her son."

Bristol says she's not giving up hope of two-parent home for Tripp ... but this is most likely the last chance she'll give that jackass Levi.

Following their somewhat surprising engagement Monday on The Bachelorette season finale and their emotional After the Final Rose reunion, we can happily report that yes, Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are still together.

We may not have seen the last of them on ABC, either.

Amid recent breakups of Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, and more scandalously Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, the idea of Ali Fedotowsky and her man making it to the altar will obviously have skeptics. But they're off to a good start.

Roberto hasn't slept with half of Chicago during his sequestration period like Ed, nor is he insane, controlling and altogether phony like Jake.

As for Ali and Vienna ... we don't have to explain.

Ali Fedotowsky, Roberto Martinez Pic

Ali and Roberto are moving to San Diego and planning a Spring 2011 wedding!

The two certainly appeared happy and overjoyed to be reunited in their appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Good Morning America last night and today.

Will we soon see them on ABC's other hit reality series? The new cast of Dancing with the Stars will be unveiled August 30 during (what else) Bachelor Pad.

According to reports, both Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have been asked to be on DWTS, a la Jake. We suspect one or more will accept that offer.

As for the next Bachelor, what we're hearing is that last night's runner-up, Chris Lambton, can have the gig if he wants it. Not a surprise there in the least.

With his classy exit on Monday's Bachelorette finale, and having already cemented his place as a major fan favorite, it's the IDEAL setup for The Bachelor.

The question is whether he does it. Unlike Jake, poor Chris seems very genuine and does not seem hell bent on becoming famous. So will see ... and hope!

As for Ali and Roberto: Will they last? Vote below!

The Mel Gibson tapes are just insane. They'd be absolutely wild, disturbing stuff from any person, let alone one of the biggest movie stars in history.

That said, two big questions remain unanswered: 1. Did he actually abuse Oksana Grigorieva, as she alleges? 2. What the HELL made him so crazy?!

Investigators probing Mel for domestic violence are examining a secret email he sent Oksana that may offer an explanation for his erratic behavior.

The email, sent the day after the alleged, violent January 6 confrontation with his then-girlfriend, reads: “The tranqullizers (sic) only make me nuts.”

Is this an apparent reference to pharmaceutical drug use?

"Tranquilizers" could refer to any number of things, from depressants used to treat anxiety and insomnia to drugs aiding substance withdrawal.

The actor was trying to quit smoking then, and on February 18, when ALL the now-infamous Mel Gibson phone calls were recorded by Oksana.

If authentic, the email obtained today by Radar Online could shed new light on the psychological state of the troubled star and his pure rage.

The message was supposedly retrieved from Oksana's phone and computer, confiscated as part of the criminal probe underway involving Gibson.

Mel supposedly sent the email January 7 at 9:39 a.m. The night before, Oksana has claimed, Mel punched her while she was holding baby Lucia.

Mel’s lawyers have never addressed the tapes or his comments, but say that he ever struck Oksana Grigorieva and have accused her of extortion.

Eleven minutes after he sent that, Mel apologetically wrote again, pleading with her to call so he could tell her “how unspeakably sorry” he was.

Stephanie Pratt and Josh Hansen have broken up, and somewhat contentiously. In other news, Stephanie Pratt was dating a dude named Josh Hansen.

Just kidding, we did know that. Because we watched The Hills' final season despite recommendations of our psychiatrists, we knew they were dating.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

Amazingly, even after the revelation that by and large, The Hills is fake, that part was apparently real. Stephanie and Josh did begin seeing each other.

It's all over now, though. The sister of Spencer Pratt and the motocross racer "went their separate ways," her rep confirms. Yes, Steph has a rep.

Whatever triggered the breakup, Josh was not pleased.

Josh Hansen and Stephanie Pratt in happier times.

"Another dysfunctional move by Stephanie pratt," Hansen Tweeted. "I was under the impression u had to be someones bf in order to get dumped."

Ohhh, snap. In response to that Tweet, the always intelligent Stephanie reported: "No josh Hansen u were dumped so stop acting like a child."

"Keep star [expletive] ur (sic) way into Hollywood. Now pls GO AWAY!!!!!!"

A rep for Hansen says he and The Hills hanger-on were never an official item and that the racer is "moving on." Looks like he's making good on that, since the dude's been Tweeting at Girls Next Door star Holly Madison fairly regularly.

NOTE: Follow THG on Twitter. We'll can't promise we'll never break up with you in person, but we'll use proper punctuation and spelling at least.

Her songs are catchy - will her products catch on too? Rising music star Ke$ha is now the brand ambassador for the Baby-G women’s Casio watches.

Appropriate, you could say, for the singer of "Tik Tok."

Yesterday, the dollar-signed one even made a special appearance at The Manhattan Center for the Casio press conference and to reveal her latest ad.

Given previous Ke$ha pictures we've seen, we half expected the campaign to feature her looking unkempt and mostly unclothed. What a surprise!

Now if only they could improve her ability to sing live the way they can touch up a pic with Photoshop, Ke$ha would be ready for world domination ...

TOUGH AND COOL: Ke$ha is both. And hopefully punctual.

Some changes in celebrity hairstyles, such as Angelina Jolie's, are subtle and don't spark too much criticism. Brody Jenner's new look is a little different.

The Hills hunk and VIP scene mainstay Brody Jenner stepped out at Hollywood's Katsuya restaurant Saturday with a major hair makeover: a mohawk!

Brody had the sides of his curly dark locks shaved off for a punk new 'do. Perhaps he did it for a change of pace ... or the approval of the girl he loves.

Jenner is currently dating allegedly edgy rocker Avril Lavigne. While the mohawk may be panned by fans, it can be fixed faster than Brody's Avril tattoo.

What do you think? Fan? Not a fan? Vote below!

When she's not making headlines with revealing Vanity Fair covers and interviews, Lady Gaga is smashing records on the charts and in music award shows.

The star scored 13 MTV Video Music Awards nominations – the most ever received by an artist in a single year. The hardware is handed out September 12.

The Incomparable Lady Gaga

"I'm so honored for the little monsters and self-professed freaks of the universe, to have more VMA nominations in a single year than any artist," says Gaga.

"Ironically, I'm even more proud it's an unlucky number: 13."

"A long time ago, the world told me and my little monsters we would never be heard, together we changed the rules. God put me on Earth for three reasons: To make loud music, gay videos and cause a damn raucous. Thank you, MTV!"

That sums it up. We'd call her arrogant, but she's just too entertaining and forthright. She even plays off the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors. It's great.

Among those lucky 13 nominations: best pop video, best dance music video, best female video and best choreography for her hit single, "Bad Romance."

The singer, who's also up for best collaboration for "Telephone" with Beyoncé, may be competing with herself more than anyone else. Her smash hits "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" are both up for best choreography and video of the year.

Congrats to Lady Gaga on the well-deserved recognition!

As we reported Monday, Montana Fishburne, 19, announced her foray into the adult entertainment business. Her father, Laurence Fishburne is not happy.

Montana, a.k.a. Chippy D, tells TMZ that the CSI star is "very hurt" over her new career path, though she is confident they can bury the hatchet soon.

Montana Fishburne Sextape

"[My dad] is very upset. I heard that he's mad at me but I haven't spoken to him yet," she said. "I feel pretty confident I can work things out with him."

"I think that he really wants to support me in everything I do, and though he sees this now as a negative, I believe in time he will view it as a positive."

Hmm. If we were the father of its star, it would he tough to see the positives of a Montana Fishburne sex tape now or down the line - but good luck!

This was probably also similar to Laurence Fishburne's reaction when he heard about what his daughter Montana decided to do in order to bolster her "career."

According to Montana, she and Laurence have always been on good terms until this thing hit ... which she never gave him the heads-up on. That hurts.

She plans to meet with her dad soon to hash everything out with the video, which she made to further her career in Hollywood ... a la Kim Kardashian.

Definitely a role model for any teenage up-and-comer.
