Jennifer Aniston Disappoints the World by Handling Brad and Angelina's Engagement Like a Grown-Up

It was only moments after news of the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie engagement broke that the entire world turned its lonely eye to Jennifer Aniston and began speculating about how she was taking it. Well, now it seems like we have reliable word on her reaction, and you may be surprised to know it doesn't involve a plan to torpedo their wedding by skydiving into their ceremony and giving birth to the sextuplets she's been secretly carrying right on the altar. Instead, it's more along the lines of "Who gives a crap?"

A "pal" told Us,"She hates it being brought up because she doesn't really care." Shocking, shocking, I tell you, that someone would have gotten over their ex-husband fully seven years after they split up. But somehow Aniston has managed it. Says her friend, "She feels Angelina can have him. She just wants to move on." And, if you needed one more little tidbit to erase any pesky doubts that Jen and Brad are done-zo for life, here you go: "Jen's totally happy with Justin. That's all in the past." Well, now that that's squared away, I suppose all we have left is to go back to speculating when she and Justin will get engaged themselves. Will they do it ASAP or will they have six children together first? [Us]

In my head, all teen pop stars are BFFs, and they secretly hang out in a clubhouse sprinkling glitter all over themselves and drinking bottomless cups of grape soda. Turns out I am not far off. Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift got together and baked pretty cupcakes last night, and Taylor even strummed away on her little guitar. Oh, to be a giggly fly on that frosting. [Twitter]

After Rosie O'Donnell went after Lindsay Lohan a little too strenuously on the Today Show a few days ago, she faced major backlash. Well, this morning she was back on the Today Show to defend herself. So what did she have to say? Basically that the industry (meaning Rosie, I guess) has an obligation to help Lindsay so she doesn't end up dead like Whitney Houston. There's some truth to that, of course, but the other side of it is that Lindsay is free to do what she likes, regardless of what we think about it. Plus, if our publicly expressing our concern was going to change anything, Lindsay would have turned her life around a long time ago. [EW]

Prince William and Kate Middleton were at a party today with a tiny, three-week-old baby, and the media is having a conniption fit because they both seemed to really love the child. Obviously that means they are foaming at the mouth to have their own little royal heir. But, duh, of course they liked the baby. There are very few people who don't go crazy when they see a tiny infant, especially when his name is Hugo. Swoon. [People]

Listen, I almost don't even know how to tell you this, but I'm just going to go for it: Benedict Cumberbatch, star of our favorite British show, Sherlock, has dissed our other favorite British show, Downton Abbey. It all stems from the Golden Globes, when Downton producer Rebecca Eaton gently teased Cumberbatch about her show beating Sherlock. And now he's saying he's no great fan of Downton's second season. Please, don't feud. I hate it when mommy and daddy fight! To soothe ourselves, let's all calmly repeat "Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch," until we feel better. [HuffPo]
