Jennifer Lawrence was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman last night.

The actress was on hand to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, but she might as well have been there to promote herself as the most awesome celebrity alive.

First, J. Law made fun of her singing voice, teaming with Letterman for the worst Christmas duet in recorded history:

Then, Letterman moved on to the Mockingjay trailer and how one scene from it reminds him of a 7-10 bowling split.

Lawrence wasn't sure what he was talking about... and then the producers couldn't cue up an example of it or a sneak peek at the star's new movie... so Lawrence and Letterman got up and walked away!

It's sort of official: there's serious bad blood brewing between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

It all started when Swift told Rolling Stone that she penned a song on hew new album about an enemy in the world of music, someone who did “something so horrible” when she tried to “sabotage an entire arena tour."

Then, not long after these comments went public, Perry Tweeted a reference to Mean Girls and a "Regina George in sheep's clothing," who we're rather positive is Taylor Swift.

So the claws are pretty much out between two of the top-selling artists in pop music history.

Will things get uglier from here? Who will fire the next shot? And where does this feud rank among recent famous rivalries, which include Drake Bell HATING on Justin Bieber and Jimmy Kimmel trading barbs with Kanye West?

Flip around and decide now:

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

For the first time since Robin Williams committed suicide last Monday, David Letterman hosted a new edition of The Late Show.

And the comedian took a full 10 minutes of air time to pay tribute to his late friend, who Letterman had known for 38 years at the time of Robin's death.

"He was on our show, this show and the old show, a total of nearly 50 times," Letterman said. "Two things would happen because Robin was on the program. One, I didn't have to do anything. All I had to do was sit here and watch the machine.

"Two, people would watch! If they knew Robin was on the show, the viewership would go up because they wanted to see Robin. Believe me, that wasn't just true of television, I believe that was true of the kind of guy he was. People were drawn to him because of this electricity."

Letterman also included a montage of clips from Williams' appearance on his program and choked up after they aired, telling the audience:

"Beyond being a very talented man, and a good friend, and a gentleman, I'm sorry, like everybody else, I had no idea that the man was in pain, that the man was suffering. What a guy, Robin Williams."

David Letterman made like Joan Rivers last night.

No, he didn't refer to Barack Obama as gay and Michelle Obama as transgender.

But The Late Show host did get up in the middle of an interview with Joan Rivers, just a couple of days after Rivers did the same thing about getting annoyed during a chat with CNN.

Letterman was merely kidding, however, while Rivers went along with it and even tossed a few questions at herself.

Pretty funny stuff. Watch now:

Letterman will soon cede his Late Show post to Stephen Colbert.

A couple A-listers demonstrated the art of the apology this week.

First, Justin Bieber was caught on tape telling a racist joke (when he was 15 years old) - but the singer quickly released a lengthy, heartfelt apology, dismissing his latest scandal far more easily than other recent slip-ups.

Jonah Hill then used an anti-gay insult to slam a cameraman, yet he also jumped on the issue and admitted his word choice was disgusting.

How do these mea culpas compare to past instances of regret exhibited by actors, artists and athletes?

Click through some of the more memorable ones from recent history now:

Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant immediately addressed sexual assault charges in 2003. Seated alongside wife Vanessa, he tearfully said he was guilty of adultery, not rape.

Between Channing Tatum's admission of alcoholism and a never-ending stream of glassy-eyed Lindsay Lohan party photos emerging from the actress' time in London, we thought it would be a good time to run down a list of celebs who have struggled with excessive drinking.

Some of the stars on this list consider themselves alcoholics, but have sobered up and now speak openly about their years of heavy boozing as a cautionary tale.

Others are still hitting the bottle and thus tend to be more secretive about their imbibing ... well except LiLo. Who else falls into each category? Let's take a look.

Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato held little back at the 2012 People's Choice Awards. Including her cleavage. Comment on her dress now.

Hollywood and hooch have a long history together, dating back to Humphrey Bogart sipping real bourbon while shooting barroom scenes, reportedly never seeming to mind if he had to do 15 takes. 

But as times have changed, so have American attitudes toward excessive drinking.

We now know that for every amusing anecdote about a sloshed celeb stumbling down the red carpet, there's a far more grim story such as Derek Whibley's near-death experience.

Stopping by The Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday, James Franco was asked to explain his strange, sometimes provocative Instagram photos.

Yes, David Letterman asked about a topical celebrity subject!

"To me, it's just a fun thing. It's something I don't put a ton of thought into," Franco said. "But it gets a lot of attention. I have a lot of followers on Instagram."

Letterman then showed CBS viewers who aren't among his two million (!) followers one of the infamous, self-posted photos of James Franco nude.

"It's not like I'm, like, putting that on billboards," he said of that and other James Franco selfies, which he defended as just giving the people what they want..

"Ostensibly, Instagram is for my fans. But, you know, now all the bloggers are following me on there, so they just take and use my images for whatever they want."

"I didn't ask you to look at it," he joked to Letterman. "It's what the people want. If you don't want to see it, don't follow me. Don't follow me on Instagram!"

The present met the future on The Late Show last night.

Stephen Colbert appeared as a guest on the program for the first time since CBS announced he'd be taking over for David Letterman some time in 2015.

After Letterman joked in his monologue that the Comedy Central star was just stopping by to “sign the lease,” he told Colbert that he’s “thrilled” over his selection as a replacement.

"They could have just as easily hired another boob like me," Dave said. "But they didn't.

They hired a boob like me," Colbert responded. "Every boob is like a snowflake, Dave. We're all unique in our own way."

CBS has confirmed that Comedy Central staple Stephen Colbert will replace the retiring David Letterman as host of The Late Show sometime in 2015.

The host, writer and executive producer of The Colbert Report will take over for Letterman when he retires from the broadcast at some point next year.

  • Colbert Report Picture
  • Late Show Host

A five-year deal between CBS and Colbert was announced by Leslie Moonves, CBS President & CEO, and Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment.

Letterman announced his retirement April 3. The legendary comedian and critically acclaimed host of The Late Show has hosted the series for 21 years.

Colbert’s premiere date is unknown, but it will obviously occur after Letterman determines a timetable for his final farewell tour broadcasts in 2015.

CBS added that specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted Late Show, are still to be determined and announced.

Not like there's a rush, given that this is a year away if not more. It's a small wonder the network announced this so quickly and didn't let the buzz build. Oh well.

Colbert replacing Letterman: Good choice? Vote!
