The Kim Kardashian song: Go ahead. Find something good to say about it.

It's so easy to criticize Kim Kardashian's new song "Jam (Turn It Up)." For starters, It's been autotuned so severely that it may have turned Kardashian's actual vocals inside out and back again. Yet she still sounds off-key. For another thing, its lyrics appear to have been penned by a third-grader who is writing a short story about what adults do when they go clubbing. Also, It makes Ke$ha sound like the Bob Dylan of party pop. Look, I could do this all day. And apparently so could everyone on the Internet, since the song has been blasted online since it made its debut Wednesday on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. Here's what's harder to do: come up with something positive to say about Kardashian's foray into music. Can you manage it? Give it a shot by trying to post a genuine compliment in the comments section. Here, I'll start....

How much is Justin Bieber's hair worth? $40,668. Roughly.

Justin Bieber and his (former) locks of love. (Associated Press) Justin Bieber's hair has sold on eBay for a reported $40,668, according to People magazine. Yes, that's the same hair he recently cut, and subsequently donated to Ellen DeGeneres, who in turn auctioned it off as a benefit for the Gentle Barn, an animal rescue organization. The identity of the lucky bidder is unknown at the moment. And what said bidder plans to do with the hair also remains unknown. (Maybe sell it on eBay for $81,336 and immediately double his/her money?) This much is clear: You can still get access to Bieber hair courtesy of this fabulous doll, which will retail for a far more affordable $17.99 in stores later this year....

Charlie Sheen: Does he win any points for honesty?

Sheen: nuts or in some crazy way, a poster boy for candor? (AP) New York Magazine's Vulture blog can read your mind. And it knows that you're a little conflicted about this whole Charlie Sheen debacle. In a post called "The Argument You're Having With Yourself About Charlie Sheen," writer Willa Paskin ping-pongs back and forth between the angels and devils currently residing in our hearts regarding Sheen. On one hand, we find his unpredictable, over-the-top behavior hilarious. We forward his tweets to our friends and now punctuate all ridiculous comment with the word "winning." Schaden and freude have never gotten along so famously. On the other hand, the whole thing is sad. All the media coverage (yes, our own included) is simply enabling him to continue acting like a lunatic. And in the process, he's potentially hurting numerous people -- father Martin Sheen, his children (recently taken out...

Lindsay Lohan does first post-rehab interview and sounds remarkably self-aware

Lindsay Lohan has given her first post-rehab interview to Extra. In it, she sounds contrite, self-aware and focused on turning around her career. No, seriously, she does. During the brief appearance, the first of two parts, the actress talks about her focus on maintaining sobriety and her desire to get back on a movie set. She realizes, however, that the second goal won't be achievable until she can convince filmmakers and casting directors that she's insurable again. "I think that will come in time, where I'll be in the position to say that," she said, "because I don't think I am right now." "I don't want that to be what I'm known for anymore, the tabloid stuff," she later added. "I don't want that." Honestly, despite the fact that she's facing potential jail time in that grand larceny case, this could not be a smarter time for Lohan to...

In praise of Hailee Steinfeld, the picture of poise at the Oscars

The most recent entertainment news cycle has been a particularly negative one. Christina Aguilera was arrested for alleged public drunkenness. Charlie Sheen is cracking up at a speed so rapid, we need a jet-pack to keep up with it. Americans everywhere -- at least the ones that lurk on the Internet -- have (understandably in most cases) blasted James Franco’s inability to generate a modicum of energy while hosting the Academy Awards. It's enough to make a person start to lose faith in celebrities altogether. (I know, you already did that years ago when John Travolta signed on to star in "Stayin' Alive." Whatever. Just play along.) Well, here's someone to give us all a little hope for the future: Hailee Steinfeld. And while she may have lost the best supporting actress Oscar to Melissa Leo on Sunday night, she still came out a winner for looking adorable and handling...

Melissa Leo on the f-bomb: Kate Winslet made her do it

Melissa Leo shows up on Ellen DeGeneres's show today and discusses her recent Oscar win as well as the f-bomb that accompanied it. (Helpfully, DeGeneres put out a swear jar. Just in case.) Leo says that Kate Winslet -- her co-star in HBO's upcoming movie, "Mildred Pierce" -- is partly responsible for her Oscar speech slip-up. The "Titanic" star "curses like a sailor all the time," Leo says. Of course, Leo is joking as far as that blame is concerned. But perhaps it's worth noting that even the allegedly potty-mouthed Winslet somehow got through her Academy Awards acceptance speech without uttering the queen mother of all bad words....

Christina Aguilera arrested; Charlie Sheen disses John Stamos; Justin Bieber celebrates a birthday

Christina Aguilera reportedly was arrested in L.A. last night on a charge of public intoxication. Her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, also was arrested on a DUI charge. Charlie Sheen says John Stamos does not have what it takes to replace him on "Two and a Half Men." "I love him. I like John, but he doesn’t have what I have and the show sucks if he’s on it," Sheen reportedly says in a new Access Hollywood interview. A report on E! Online has revived rumors that CBS may be pursuing Stamos and asking him to step in. Also, in another interview this morning, Sheen tells "Today" that the "goddesses" who live with him don't judge him. Then he proceeds to judge people who have expressed concern for him on the Internet. Meanwhile, Sheen's longtime publicist Stan Rosenfeld resigned yesterday because he feels he's "unable to work effectively as his publicist." You...
