The much-anticipated Demi Moore 911 call has been released, and it contains a few pretty depressing revelations. The almost nine-minute-long recording captures a very chaotic scene at Demi's house. It appears there were multiple people there with her that night, one of whom was likely her 23-year-old daughter Rumer Willis. The 911 operator patiently talks to a few different people, two of whom direct questions to someone in the room they call "Ru," which is Rumer's nickname. What an unfortunate thing for her to have to witness.

As far as what happened to Demi, the caller says she smoked something that was not marijuana. (Some have speculated it was salvia.) They describe her as semi-conscious, and it's mentioned that she is convulsing and "burning up." A friend on the line states that it was accidental, and, when asked if Demi has done this before, the friend says, "I don't know, there's been some stuff recently that we're all just finding out." We'll no doubt eventually also find out what she's referring to, but for now let's just be glad Demi had people around to help her and ended up okay. [TMZ, People]

In a development that really is not shocking, it's been confirmed that Oprah is not actually Blue Ivy Carter's godmother. Gayle King broke the news on the Early Show this morning, and she would probably know. So that leaves us all free to keep speculating who Beyonce and Jay-Z will pick. Whoever it ends up being is probably going to feel like a little bit of a letdown after Oprah. Unless it's Gwyneth Paltrow, in which case we can get excited about all the exorbitantly priced toddler cleanses and spa treatments she has lined up for her goddaughter. [CBS News]

Speaking of Oprah, it used to be that she'd mention something on TV, and it'd sell out in seconds. Now it looks like President Obama has the very same superpower. Apparently after he sang just a single line of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," Nielsen reported that digital downloads of the song jumped a whopping 490 percent! Maybe Obama needs to start stimulating the economy (and our hearts/loins) by singing a selection from a new song each week. [HuffPo]

Fans of Friday Night Lights, there is some tragic news regarding our beloved Tim Riggins. Actor Taylor Kitsch, who's out promoting his new movie John Carter, has said he won't reprise his role as the smolderingly hot problem drinker with a heart of gold for the FNL movie that's in the works:

I love the way we ended Riggs, so I think it would be an injustice to breathe life into him again. I love the way it ended and I'd rather leave it on that note. God knows I loved playing the guy, I'd rather leave it that way.


It's sad to think about a future devoid of Riggins, but we will have to fight through it. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. [Digital Spy]

This whole Joseph Gordon-Levitt taking any opportunity to sing and play guitar is teetering on the edge of being too much. Here he is doing a not especially special version of "Hey Jude" at Sundance. Maybe you should quit while you're ahead, JGL. Keep it up, and we'll all start groaning when you break out your guitar at parties. [Crushable]


  • Taylor Swift is in London and had dinner with Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Do you think Gwynnie spent the whole time trying to subtly suggest to Taylor that they should do a duet on Taylor's next album? [ONTD]
  • Snoop Dogg has made a video in which he offers some very interesting—and pretty offensive/NSFW—advice for Kris Humphries. He advises against marrying Kim Kardashian, which is strange, since it's really too late for that. But expecting Snopp Dogg to be dishing out spot-on relationship advice is probably too much to ask for. [THR]
  • Sean Penn was having a drink "with a lady friend" at a bar in LA when another patron got drunk and unruly. All it took was Sean going over to ask, "Is everything okay?" and the guy calmed down—but not before telling Penn to "Stay out of it, Sparky." Ahh, the power of celebrity. [E!]

1. I have purposely avoided checking out Friday Night Lights because it is a prime example of those 'critically-acclaimed' shows that critics/fans have demanded that others tune into while blaming its low ratings on said other TV viewers' 'stupidity'.

2. The only issue I take with Snoop's advice is that he's a day late and a dollar short.

3. In September, Baldwin came to his 16-year-old daughter's defense when a tweet she sent out around Jay-Z and Kanye West's hit song, "N***** in Paris" caused her followers to accuse her of being a racist.

"Anyone who thinks that quoting the title of that song is racist is a disgrace to the human race," Baldwin tweeted.

Hmm, if someone Tweeted the M-word in response to his ignorant ass daughter, Alec's equally ignorant ass would be Tweeting an entirely different tune.

4. Aww, my uncle'll be sad to hear about Juan Epstein.
