Brad Pitt thinks he has prosopagnosia, aka “face blindness.” That’s why he doesn’t remember you. No, seriously, it’s very sad. “You meet so many damned people,” he says, “and then you meet ’em again.” (Esquire)

Yikes: George Michael is still in the hospital “for observation,” five days after a London traffic accident that it now turns out may have involved him falling out of a moving car. (Reuters)

Holy cow: Jesse James, the guy who humiliatingly cheated on Sandra Bullock, accidentally cut off the tip of his pinkie finger. And then Instagrammed it. (TMZ)

Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner has found a new chief for the magazine’s Web division: His 22-year-old son. He “impressed me more than anyone.” (Adweek)
