Over the last couple years, American Idol has made impressive use of its forum to raise money for important cause with its Idol Gives Back special.

That event will take place again on April 21. But Kris Allen and Fox will help bring attention to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti long before that.

Last season's champion has headed to that ravaged nation and will perform on the February 25 edition of Idol. He'll share live footage from his trip and ask viewers to make donations online or via text message during the episode.

"It is heartbreaking to see the devastation that Haiti is currently facing," Allen said. "I am truly honored to be traveling to Haiti to see the U.N.'s relief efforts firsthand and to help out any way that I can."

Tiger Woods is merely on a break and will be returning to sex addiction rehab therapy after he addresses the media later this morning, according to a letter penned by PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem to the tour's policy board.

"As we understand it, Tiger's therapy calls for a week's break at this time during which he has spent a few days with his children and then will make his statement before returning," Finchem said in a letter obtained by the Associated Press.

"Accordingly, there was little flexibility in the date for the announcement."

The PGA confirmed that Woods left a treatment facility last week, though no one official has come right out and said he was being treated for a sex addiction.

Woods should confirm that himself today when he breaks his silence.

Tiger Woods is expected to confirm today that he is seeking treatment.

"This is the time frame that met with his rehab schedule, coming out for a little bit, being with his family for a little bit, doing this, it just worked," Finchem said.

"He got out of rehab last week, he spent some time with his family and he had some time for this tomorrow, and he'll address the details of that tomorrow."

"I will leave that to him."

It is unclear if Tiger will discuss his future with his wife - and whether Elin will leave him - or whether his estranged spouse will be by his side this morning.

Woods, according to numerous accounts, checked into Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss., back in mid-January.

He will be speaking for the first time since his Thanksgiving car crash at 11 a.m. EST. A leaked statement attributed to him yesterday appears bogus.

Will sex addiction rehab help Tiger?

Despite rumors that she was dating someone else while competing for Jake Pavelka's heart, The Bachelor reject Gia Allemand says she was (and is) a single gal.

Appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, the model subtly shot down a New York Post report that she has a boyfriend and pretended to be single.

When Ellen DeGeneres asked Gia Allemand if she's dating, the reality star says, "I'm actually going to have my first date next week. My first date in a while."

That conflicts with claims of alleged lover Dominick Pierno, a Long Island restauranteur who told the Post, "She was on the show and said she broke up with me."

"Meanwhile, we had dinner at Philippe the other night."

Gia: The Bachelor

Gia Allemand finished third on this season of The Bachelor.

The 26-year-old stunner said she was fully invested in The Bachelor, and "it took me a while" to get over Jake Pavelka, "with my heart broken and everything."

Throwing salt on the wound? Seeing this week's episode.

"I finally got over it but then I was watching the show Monday night," she says, "I was, like, hysterical in my hotel room. I was like oh my, that really hurt."

Gia also has some interesting comments about public enemy #1 Vienna Girardi, who she describes as a "really good person." Umm, what? That's a new one!

Is Vienna just being railroaded by exes and ABC editors? Or was Gia just not as riled up by her as Ali Fedotowsky and Tenley Molzahn? Interesting debate.

Who should Jake give his final rose to?

Despite settling its lawsuit with Jon Gosselin and retaining his services legally and exclusively, TLC does not want the douche back on the air anytime soon.

Or at all.

TLC’s parent company sued Jon for breaching his contract and won a preliminary injunction against him in late 2009 before the two sides settled this week.

While the issue of whether or not to bring back Jon & Kate Plus 8 has been discussed internally at TLC, the one component that everyone agrees on is this:

NO JON.

“TLC is done with Jon. They have him under contract still, but they don’t plan to use him,” a source dished, although it remains unclear if / how Jon & Kate Plus 8 (or just Kate Plus 8) will still be brought back in some capacity.

“The show could come back as a series of specials,” the source said. “It made the network a lot of money.” Especially after Jon began railing Deanna Hummel.

At least in the immediate future, however, the network has no plans to bring the show back right now, and is focusing instead on Kate Gosselin’s new show.

Jon? He's got nothing going on. Terms were confidential, but the lawsuit settlement likely bars him from making money via other entertainment channels.

We just feel bad for Morgan Christie. She's dating Jon for publicity, and between this and general lack of interest in him, it looks like he's going to get less.

Do you sense a theme early on season nine of American Idol?

The show is highlighting young women on guitars, possibly aiming to find the next Taylor Swift. Not exactly a misguided strategy.

Two of the female contestants that have advanced to the semifinals and made a strong impression on viewers are Crystal Bowersox and Janell Wheeler. The former can seriously rock a harmonica, while the latter was admittedly a bundle of nerves in Hollywood, but got the green light from all four judges anyway.

Consider the futures of these aspiring stars and vote below...

  • Bowersox!

Who will advance farther on American Idol?

 

Earlier today, we also compared semifinalists Andrew Garcia and Todrick Hall. Sound off on these hopefuls chances right now, as well.

Heroes decided to royally suck after about Season One, and with its free fall, Hayden Panettiere became less the $h!t than she initially was. But cute she remains.

She's posing here for Lush magazine, whatever that is. Peep it:

Whatever magazine this is from, we like the direction they took.

We're sure Wladimir Klitschko approves of the look above. What guy wouldn't? Too bad she's not 10 years older and on a show that doesn't eat ass, are we right guys?

Just kidding ... her age stopped more than one 30-year-old from going there.

In a new interview with Parade magazine, Elton John says he doesn't wish to be famous. How come?

"Princess Diana, Gianni Versace, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, all dead. Two of them shot outside their houses. None of this would have happened if they hadn't been famous. Fame attracts lunatics. I never had a bodyguard until Gianni died. I don't like celebrity anymore."

Elton Pic

That's all well and good, but it then makes the singer's subsequent comments about Jesus Christ - yes, that Jesus Christ - all the more unusual.

If you don't wish to be in the news, Elton, you probably shouldn't say that Jesus was a homosexual.

"I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems," John said. "On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don't know what makes people so cruel."

Come to think of it, Jesus was really into fashion. You could argue that he started the crucifix-wearing trend that continues to this day. He's also well-remembered for eating dinner with 12 other men. Hmmm....

Appearing today on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, Scott Disick aimed to clear up a few misconceptions about him. Namely, that he isn't the Boyfriend from Hell.

He wants Kris Jenner to know that because Kourtney Kardashian's mother is full of "anger at all times" when the pair talk, he told Ryan. But there's hope for the relationship!

"Honestly, deep down, I think we both love each other a little bit, and I think that will come to the surface in due time. We already are getting along better these days," Scott said.

Scott and Kourtney

Disick told the American Idol host that Jenner constantly compares him to Reggie Bush and Lamar Odom, the football and basketball stars that are doing Kim and Khloe Kardashian, respectively.

"Kris thinks that if you're an athlete you tend to be a better person, when that's not always the case," Disick said.

It's true. Sometimes unemployed deadbeats make the best son-in-laws. You just gotta give them a chance.

A copy of the alleged statement Tiger Woods will deliver Friday at his comeback news conference has been leaked, although its authenticity is highly questionable.

Among its claims? That "things have not worked out" between Woods and wife Elin Nordegren and that they will separate. Another part of Tiger's alleged statement:

"There is no one to blame but me for the mess I have put my wife and family through." After careful deliberation with his spouse, "we have decided to live apart."

Baloney, right? Tiger's reps reportedly say it's not legit, and we believe 'em. Many more things about the so-called Tiger Woods statement don't add up than do.

While Elin Woods' decision on whether to leave Tiger is still up in the air, and we would not be all that surprised if she did, why would Woods get into it here?

Moreover, Woods mentions his custody arrangement and barely talks at all about his return to golf (supposedly at the Masters) in these very brief remarks.

Fishy.

We'll know for sure soon enough at his Friday news conference, but follow the jump to read the full text of Tiger Woods' alleged statement and see if you buy it ...

Already well known for outrageous hairstyles and fashion, Lady Gaga may have outdone even herself this time, debuting a hair phone in her "Telephone" music video.

By hair phone, we mean that literally!

In stills from her latest performance art piece, with which she collaborated with Beyonce, Gaga is seen with a phone stuck to the side of her head. Somehow it works.

She's really weird. She's also really talented. When you're a rumored hermaphrodite who dresses like Marie Antoinette on HGH, what's a little phone made of hair?

It's not the first time Gaga and Beyonce have combined their talents. The music superstars originally teamed up for a remix of Beyonce's hit "Video Phone."
