Rumors have continued to fly about Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan on the romantic front, but after a month of heavy flirting, things have reportedly cooled off.

"Jessica loved spending time in and out of the studio with Billy," a pal said of Jess and the Smashing Pumpkins frontman. "She's in awe of his musical prowess."

"It added up to serious feelings, but they are not actually dating."

The source said that Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan were introduced by a music producer pal, and they've worked together both in New York and Los Angeles.

The insider said Corgan was making an effort to visit her beyond their musical collaboration, but that the two were probably too different for that to work.

"Dating Jessica can be intense. Billy lives a quiet, private, music-focused life and the taste of publicity he got being with Jessica was an eye opener," the source said.

"Billy likes Jessica, but he will work to keep their relationship as it is and focus on the music. They were not getting serious, but Jessica has so much fun with him."

The pal said hanging with Corgan is helping Jess "finally grow up."

"[Jessica Simpson] has gotten fed up with doing things for other people ... she barely wears makeup these days. She eats whatever she wants. She once was a slave to what people thought, but Billy has brought out a mature, toned down Jessica."

We just can't wait to hear the music they collaborated on. Simpson Pumpkins? Smashing Jessica? Hitmakers of the '90s Struggling to Hang On? Time will tell ...

Does American Idol have the next David Archuleta on its hands?

Granted, it's very early to make that comparison, but there are clear similarities between Aaron Kelly and the season seven finalist.

Kelly is one of several contestants rumored to have advanced to the top 24 this year. He's only 16, yet has a lot of confidence and has gone through some trials already in life: Aaron's aunt and uncle adopted him when he was a toddler because his parents were simply too por.

On Aaron's MySpace page, he's referred to himself as a “Legend in the Works."

Archuleta came across as more humble, of course, but both these artists got started at an early age.

Kelly landed an independent recording contract when he was 10 and won the “American Idol Experience” at DisneyWorld last year. This qualified him to audition for the judges this season and earn unanimous approval for Hollywood.

Critics are already comparing Aaron Kelly to Archuleta, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. All the hype is a bit premature.

But the following clip of Kelly singing "Jesus Take the Wheel" proves that he's a contestant worth remembering.

According to Sarah Aspin, Amy Winehouse isn't the only woman Blake Fielder-Civil has recently told he wants to marry, if you know what she's saying.

Sarah Aspin's saying Blake planned to wed her too!

The recently-divorced Blake and Amy are supposedly planning to re-marry, but Aspin, who Blake met in rehab, says he pledged the same thing to her.

"We spent all our spare time together. He said he'd found his soulmate, that he loved me, as if he had known me forever," she recalled of those days.

This isn't the first woman alleging an affair with Blake while in rehab. He supposedly knocked up Gilleen Morris there as well. But back to Sarah ...

"One day we were talking about our future. Then Blake looked at me and said, 'You are the only person I ever want to be with - will you marry me?'

BFC and A-Dubs

Is Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil's soulmate? Or is Sarah Aspin?

Of course, Sarah knew all about Blake's previous marriage. But she says he made his relationship status perfectly clear to her during their time together.

"I did double check about Amy. He said they were getting divorced. He admitted they spoke but said he couldn't be with her, that drugs had ruined them."

Sarah is questioning their future now that remarriage reports between Blake and Wino have surfaced, even as she claims she and Blake are still together.

They've been meeting up for the past five months, she says! Regularly, too: "Up until last week we saw each other every 2-3 days," Aspin alleges.

"Blake told me, I am in love with you, it is you I want. He said he wasn't remarrying Amy. But now I reckon he's stringing us both along. So I'm dumping him."

Probably a smart move.

Wow, though. This story doesn't bode well for Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil if she were to find out about it. Then again what does bode well for them?

Some friend who claims knowledge of the inner turmoil of train wreck actress Lindsay Lohan claims she has been cutting herself. Some friend, indeed!

This purported pal does not have a name, apparently, but some photos appear to show a fresh cut on Lindsay's arm at a Golden Globes pre-party.

The source puts the blame on Lohan. Dina Lohan.

"Why is Dina out partying when it's clear she's still cutting herself?" Lindsay's friend said. "Dina should get Lindsay help, not follow her to parties."

Reports first surfaced that Lindsay was harming herself late last year. Her dad, Michael Lohan, has been adamant about getting his daughter help.

As long as he gets lots of attention for it, that is.

Fashion Phreak

CUTTER: Harming herself or not, Linds' fashion is not cutting edge!

Cutting herself or not, Lindsay hasn't recently had her share of stress lately, most notably the death of good friend Casey Johnson a couple of weeks ago.

Girl also got robbed by Patrick Aufdenkamp. Man, that had to suck too. We sure hope that she gets the help she needs. Lots of it. Before it's too late.

A New York Times Magazine writer confirmed last night what rumors have suggested for days: that Tiger Woods is a patient at Gentle Path, a sex addiction program at Pine Grove, a private treatment center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis, who has written extensively about his sex addiction, including his own, confirmed on his personal blog Monday that Woods is at the clinic.

In his book America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life, he notes that Gentle Path  "is directed by Patrick Carnes, one of the world's leading experts.

The official website for Pine Grove says that the Gentle Path program is "for those suffering from sexual addiction, relationship addiction and sexual anorexia."

Denizet-Lewis speculates Woods may have begun sex rehab treatment elsewhere - such as the Meadows treatment center in Arizona, where he was allegedly spotted.

What does sex addiction treatment entail, exactly? The reporter explains that the usual regimen includes group therapy sessions as well as family and couples therapy.

Tiger's wife, Elin Woods, has not been spotted at the facility, but that may change as his treatment progresses, at least according to the author's own experience.

"If Tiger and his wife, Elin, are serious about repairing their marriage," he writes on his blog, "then she will be spending some time in Hattiesburg with Tiger."

Another typical requirement: patients must sign a "celibacy contract" - a promise "not to have sex with anyone, or to masturbate, while in treatment."

In his book, Denizet-Lewis writes of other typical sex-clinic practices, including "empathy letters" for unfaithful married men and "cost letters" for their wives:

"Men who had repeatedly cheated on their wives had to write 'empathy letters' to them, which would never be sent but were read in group therapy sessions and usually criticized for not being nearly empathetic enough," he recalls.

On a similar note, sex addicts' wives "wrote their own, painful 'cost letters' - detailing how the sexual addiction had affected them - that were read to their husbands for the first time in group by another group member."

We expect Elin's will be a mile long - you could spend hours on just Rachel Uchitel. In all seriousness, we hope Tiger finds what he's looking for in rehab. He's obviously a troubled guy, and if Elin wants to give him a chance, that's her choice.

Will sex addiction treatment help Tiger Woods?

Sorry, Glee fans, but Adam Lambert is not coming on board this Fox series.

But a couple of other major names are likely to guest star on the 2010 Golden Globe winner for Best Comedy.

Executive producer Brad Falchuk has confirmed that Jennifer Lopez is in negotiations to appear this season as a cafeteria worker. Echoed creator Ryan Murphy:

"Lopez wants to do the show, so I’m going to meet with her. In the past couple of months, a lot of people are coming out saying they love the show... But I don’t want to stunt-cast too much, because I think the [musical] numbers are already so extravagant.”

  • J. Lo Picture
  • NPH

Still, there's no way Glee could turn down this opportunity:

Neil Patrick Harris is rumored to to star in a May sweeps episode directed by good friend Joss Whedon. The How I Met Your Mother star might be the most universally beloved figure on television these days.

His presence on Glee will only ratchet up the popularity of a show that's already been renewed for a second season and whose creativity and uniqueness is unrivaled on the small screen.

As for J. Lo? As long as she continues to keep it real as Jenny from the Bronx block, we'll be happy.

Note to Tila Tequila:

This is how you mourn a loved one... sort of.

While that troubled reality star continues to Tweet, pimp out her record level and exploit the death of Casey Johnson in every conceivable way, Courtenay Semel has released an emotional video tribute to her ex-girlfriend.

Granted, the video aired on E! News and there's a good chance Semel was paid to make it. She also butchers the English language by saying Johnson was "literally" her other half, and makes a vow to never date anyone again that is unlikely to be kept.

But at least this is the only time Courtenay has spoken out about Casey. Do the words seem strong for someone whose hair Semel once set on fire? Yes. But, hey, who are we to judge?!?

Watch the tribute below.

Okay, you might say it's a little heavy on the airbrushing, but Janet Jackson still looks great on the new cover of Gotham magazine. We're big fans of Janet.

While a somewhat odd choice for the cover of the magazine's wedding issue (she is newly single after splitting with Jermaine Dupri), we have no complaints.

Janet has a new album out, and a new perspective on life. Following a tragic year for her family, who bid farewell to Michael, she's finally ready to move on.

We have no doubt that she will. Janet has always seemed remarkably normal and well-adjusted compared to most members of her famous family. You go girl ...

Miss Jackson moves on. We can't wait to follow.
