Seen in the video below, Adam Lambert sung “Whataya Want From Me” with a group of kids in L.A. on Thursday, February 18. The event was part of the crooner's efforts to assist with DonorsChoose.org.
The talented, admirable musician dropped by to perform this single with the students and also handed out music composition books so they could write their own music.
If you wish to donate to classroom projects in honor of Lambert, visit DonorsChoose.org today. Then, take a look and a listen:
P.S. No, current Idol semifinalist Alex Lambert is NOT related to Adam. They share a love of music, not any DNA.
Man, this makes us feel old.
Hillary Duff, who we first started to follow in 2001 when she was a 14-year old Lizzie McGuire, is engaged. Long-time boyfriend, and Edmonton Oilers star, Mike Comrie popped the question to the actress in Maui this week.
This is actually the second accepted proposal between a singer and hockey player in the last couple months: Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher got engaged in late December.
Duff was most recently seen on the small screen during a six-episode arc on Gossip Girl.
We wish her and Comrie a happy, healthy life together!
Below is the full video from Tiger Woods' press conference earlier Friday, in which he acknowledged "selfish, foolish behavior" and affairs with women.
Here's his 13-minute speech, which followed by no questions (obviously) and, to us at least, was not the most heartfelt thing we've ever heard.
You tell us, though. Take a look and see what you think:
What do you think of Tiger's apology speech? Did he come across sincere, or is he just reading prepared remarks pretending to be sorry?
Earlier this week, Simon Cowell said he hoped a female would come out on top of American Idol this season.
As loyal fans know, the judges often tweak comments and try to manipulate votes in the direction of contestants they're cheering for, so this is a comment worth taking seriously.
Rodriguez brings energy and a big voice to the stage. Let's face it, she's also gorgeous. Scott, meanwhile, is one of several singers that appears to be following the mold of Taylor Swift, singing beautifully and strumming her guitar.
Contrast the hopefuls below and let your voice be heard...
Which of these contestants will go farther on American Idol?
We've also pitted Crystal Bowersox and Janell Wheeler against one another. Cast your vote between those two hopefuls now!
In Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt has his very own Reality TV Frankenstein, a wife he may give 25-30 orgasms a day, craft to his liking with countless plastic surgeries, and pimp to celeb gossip tabloids for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Pretty sweet deal.
It looks like surgery isn't solely a pastime for his plastic princess, however. A friend says Spencer is looking to have some work done on his ugly mug too.
After all, ever since Heidi Montag emerged from 10 operations in one day, she's been getting a lot of media attention, which was probably why she did it.
Really desperate and sad, but if you can get past that, it's also hilarious. Equally funny? That Spencer Pratt is considering following in her fake footsteps.
PLASTIC PAIR: The gruesome twosome may get gruesomer still.
According to the friend, who spoke about the couple's obsession with plastic surgery, The Hills villain is looking into "lipo, chest implants and a nose job."
Seems like a lot of time, money, and effort just to maintain C-list celebrity status. We realize that's what Speidi does, and always has done, but still ...
A little over the top, guys. You can probably stick to staged bikini and holiday photos and still earn a nice living. Minus any permanent disfigurement too.
It's been a big week for Kim Kardashian.
Instead of merely reading off cue cards for her reality show, or posing on red carpets for parties that pay her thousands of dollars do nothing, the former sex tape star took on the role of fashion and fragrance designer.
First, she walked the runway during New York Fashion Week, donning a dress she and her sisters helped create.
Then, she and Sephora officially launched Kim's new fragrance at a store in the city. Hundreds of people showed up, including one adorable Saints fan:
For the record, no matter how good she looks in a bathing suit, we'd much rather see this side of Kim than the woman that Tweets photos of herself looking "HOT" in a bikini.

Tiger Woods held a press conference moments ago, speaking in public for the first time since his secret life of tawdry sexual liaisons was exposed in late November.
The golfer addressed friends, family, fans and business associates today at the TPC at Sawgrass in Florida, expressing regret for "irresponsible and selfish behavior."
He delved into few salacious details that have been reported about his affairs, except to issue a blanket denial of many celebrity gossip reports about his actions.
One topic Woods did address was the rumor of wife Elin Nordegren attacking him the night of his car accident. He says it did not happen. We do not believe him.
Woods confirmed that, as media outlets speculated earlier, he is headed back to rehab shortly. Tiger says that even he does not know when he will return to golf.
Did Tiger Woods' remarks today change your opinion of him?
Following his 13-minute speech, which was utterly devoid of emotion and consisted of little beyond Tiger repeating himself ad nauseam and looking like Sarah Palin reading crib notes, he went down the line hugging a select group of people.
His mom and longtime friend Bryon Bell, who served as the middle man setting up Tiger's dalliances with Rachel Uchitel, were among those on hand in the front row.
Follow the jump for the full transcript of Tiger's apology speech at his press conference today and tell us what you think (click here for video of the apology speech).
Is he saying and doing right things, or did he fall short?
Simon Cowell would like to get one thing out of the way: He's not engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy.
Personal questions aside, the American Idol spoke to reporters yesterday and addressed reports of who might replace him as a judge next season.
“I think they’ll find somebody who’s got that kind of experience, whether it’s a manager, artist, or like me, an A & R executive,” he said.
What about two of the most prominent names being bantered about: Howard Stern and Perez Hilton?
“I know Howard’s name has been in there for a while, but I’m fairly certain that there hasn’t been an approach at any time for Howard to do the show... He’s played records. He’s a DJ. He obviously wants the job. Good luck to him.”
What about the world's most self-obsessed celebrity gossip blogger? “Perez would be funny. He’s got a good taste in music, he’s a personality — that could work.”
As for Cowell's favorites this season, he won't specify any contestant. But his words make it clear that he's in the corner of female singers such as Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami.
“There’s definitely a better chance of a girl winning the show. I’d love to find a Taylor Swift, somebody who’s relevant rather than just a contest winner.”
Ouch. Was that a shot at recent winners David Cook and Kris Allen?
Sunday's episode of Fox's Family Guy drew condemnation from Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, 2008 V.P. nominee and mother of a special needs baby.
On the show, teenager Chris dates a girl named Ellen who has Down Syndrome and tells him over dinner that her mother is “the former governor of Alaska.”
Sarah Palin, whose son Trig has Down Syndrome, lashed out at Family Guy, which she says “really isn’t funny” and is the work of “cruel, cold-hearted people.”
The Republican politician also involved her teenage daughter Bristol for some reason and plugged her Facebook page a lot in various statements. Whatever.
This and other non-PC Family Guy quotes have drawn ample criticism, but one woman clearly in the corner of the Fox comedy is Andrea Fay Friedman (below).
Sarah Palin might like to hear herself talk more than anyone in history think Family Guy is offensive and hurtful, but this voice actress is sticking by the controversial show.
The 39-year-old actress and public speaker - who voiced Ellen on the Family Guy episode - has Down syndrome herself, and says that it's okay to laugh.
We didn't see that coming. She emailed this to the New York Times:
"I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line 'I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska' was very funny.
I think the word is 'sarcasm.' In my family we think that laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life."
Hard to argue with that ... or is it? Whose side are you on?
