After Beyonce was photographed hanging out with Kim Kardashian at a "Watch the Throne" concert in Birmingham, UK over the weekend, throngs of fans took to Twitter to express their outrage. "Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian in the same picture let alone the same sentence is tragic," said one. "if your role model is Kim Kardashian, I can't take you seriously, Beyoncé is a way better role model. She's respectful of herself," said another. The vitriol makes perfect sense, explains an "insider"—it's because Beyonce is a virginal downy lamb and Kim is a big, skanky, whorey, slut-whore: "Beyoncé has an air of class and sophistication to her, while Kim is famous because of a sex tape and a failed marriage." Whatever you say, dicks. In related news, Beyonce wrote an encouraging letter to a blind person. (It is well known that Kim Kardashian scorns and fears the blind.) [Radar] [TheGrio]

Today in I can't stop jumping up and down, Regis Philbin is in talks to join Kathie Lee on the Today Show if Hoda goes off to replace Ann Curry!!!!! First of all, this would obviously be the best thing ever and I would quit my job and watch it every day. Second of all, REGIS PHILBIN IS 80 YEARS OLD. HE IS PART OF GENERATION A. WHY DOES HE STILL WANT A JOB. (Now if only there were a way to reach through the cold, impenetrable shroud of death and orchestrate a Jim J. and Tammy Faye reunion. Alas.) [Radar]


On the third anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, the Jackson family did some grieving on Twitter. Daughter Paris wrote: "RIP Michael Jackson. Dad you will be forever in my heart. I love you." There were similar sentiments from LaToya ("Sad morning all. This day was the day that lead to the demise of my little brother. 'Michael We Love' May you RIP. Gone FAR To Soon.") and Randy ("3 yrs ago on this June 25th, my brother passed"). Condolences to all. [Radar]


Investigators have finally solved the murder of Dylan McDermott's mother, who was mysteriously shot when McDermott (now 50) was only five years old. Police have determined that the 45-year-old crime was committed by her boyfriend at the time. "I'd like to thank everyone for their amazing support today. It means so much to me," he tweeted today. In I-hope-not-too-tastelessly-unrelated news, I've never understood why Dylan McDermott isn't a bigger star. That dude is mega-handsome. [Radar]

That makes me $500,000 more profitable than a Ponzi scheme! Do it! Doooooo iiiiit.) [E!]
