Fitting since I'm BACK on Monday...perhaps more fitting as its been quite awhile since I've posted a new one of these!

Katy Perry dumped John Mayer and turned down Idol
Nicki Minaj/Idol rumors
Chad Kroeger got engaged to Avril Lavigne (imagine the offspring...)
Speaking of offspring, Snooki dropped one!
The US lost one as Neil Armstrong passed on

Here's some other stuff!

The next ONE DIRECTION album is coming out in November. There's no title or release date yet. The first single "Live While We're Young" is scheduled to come out on October 1st.

It's been less than six months since One Direction's debut album "Up All Night" came out in the U.S. It was originally released in the U.K. last November.

"Up All Night" has sold 1.1 million copies in the U.S. in 2012, which makes it the second-biggest selling album of the year. ADELE'S album "21" is the #1. It has sold 3.9 million copies this year.

Speaking of One Direction, ZAYN MALIK angrily shut down his Twitter account on Tuesday...and that lasted TWO WHOLE DAYS.
He returned yesterday...Tweeting, quote, "Sorry, I was getting some abuse on Twitter but I don't want to let my fans down. So I am back!! :)"
BRITNEY SPEARS is still under her conservatorship after four and a half years...and there's a good reason for that.

Britney's people filed papers this week asking the judge in the conservatorship case to seal certain "highly sensitive" records that could cause Britney, "irreparable harm and immediate danger."

Sources say these records have to do with a SERIOUS MEDICAL ISSUE that prevents Britney from consistently making sound decisions.

Whatever this disorder is, it affects Britney's personality and state of mind...and while she's currently doing, quote, "extremely well", she still needs that safety net.
When you move into a new place, it takes a while until it feels like home. And for a lot of us, apparently a place doesn't feel like home until we've walked around NAKED.

In a new survey, the average person says it takes about two months and six days at a new place before it feels like home.

And one of the biggest signs that yes, you're at home is...walking around naked. Check out the other four signs...

Putting out a welcome mat.

Falling asleep on the couch.

Having a housewarming party.

And putting up photos of your friends and family.

Remember this the next time you're debating whether to spend a few extra thousand dollars to get a convertible. There's a REALLY good chance you'll NEVER take advantage of it.

According to a new survey of convertible owners, 64% say they never or almost never put the top down. That means there's about a two-thirds chance the convertible feature of your convertible will go to waste.

But...that may not even be why you're buying the car. The survey found that 46% of people said they picked a convertible for its LOOKS more than the idea of driving around with the top down.

Overall, women are more likely than men to drive with the top down. Men are also more likely than women to say they NEVER put the top down.

It's official: TAYLOR SWIFT'S song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" set a record for the biggest digital sales week ever for a song by a female artist. It sold 623,000 copies last week, and is number one on the "Billboard" Digital Songs chart.

It's also the second-largest sales in a week overall, behind "Right Round" FLO RIDA. He did that back in February of 2009.

TAYLOR and her boyfriend CONOR KENNEDY were asked to STAY AWAY from a Kennedy family wedding last Saturday...but they went anyway. It was the wedding of Conor's cousin, Kyle Kennedy.

Conor WAS invited, but he never RSVP'd...and then he decided he wanted to go...AND bring Taylor.

The bride's mother, Victoria Gifford Kennedy, told the"Boston Herald", "They texted me an hour before the wedding and asked if they could come. I responded with a very clear, 'Please do not come.' They came anyway."

Naturally, Taylor's appearance in the hotel lobby caused all kinds of chaos...with fans asking for pictures and autographs.

Victoria was not pleased. She said, "I personally went up to Ms. Swift, whose entrance distracted the entire event, politely introduced myself to her, and asked her as nicely as I could to leave.

"It was like talking to a ghost. She seemed to look right past me."

Somehow, Conor and Taylor finally got the message that they weren't welcome so they left and got some dinner elsewhere. But then they CAME BACK later and spent the night dancing at the reception.

Which means either Conor and Taylor are oblivious to the needs of others...or the mother of the bride simply did not make it crystal clear about them staying away.

Anyway, a spokeswoman for Taylor is calling foul. She told "The Herald", "There is no truth to that. Taylor was invited to the wedding and the bride thanked her profusely for being there."

I'm going with the mother of the bride on this one. I can totally understand her not wanting any distractions on her daughter's big day. Especially considering this is the Kennedy family and the last thing they need is publicity.

Plus, Taylor's people are paid to say things that will make her look good.

TAYLOR SWIFT, ALICIA KEYS and PINK will get their own "VH1 Storytellers" episodes this fall.

They will debut on consecutive nights in November. Taylor will be featured on November 11th...Alicia Keys' episode premieres on the 12th...and Pink's follows on the 13th.

Btw, Taylor's "VH1 Storytellers" performance will take place at a SCHOOL, and she's holding a contest to determine which one gets it.

If you're a student, you can vote for your high school or college at now through September 23rd. The Top Five schools will receive a $10,000 grant for their music department.

An appliance company called De'Longhi asked people to pick the top ten status symbols they want in their home. Check out the results . . .

#1.) Hot tub.

#2.) Walk-in closet: This was the top choice for WOMEN.

#3.) Side-by-side refrigerator-freezer. (They're not common in the U.K., where the study was done. And they call them 'U.S.-style fridges.' Who knew?)

#4.) A stereo system with speakers in every room: That was top choice for MEN.

#5.) 3-D television.

#6.) Sound-activated blinds and lights.

#7.) Restaurant-style range stove.

#8.) Fancy coffee maker.

#9.) Temperature-controlled wine cellar.

#10.) Gas grill.

In the 1990s we wanted: A black dining room table and chairs...a breadmaker...and beige carpeting.

In the '80s we had to have: A Commodore 64 avocado-colored bathroom...a garbage disposal...and a microwave.

In the '70s people wanted: A fondue set...a Betamax...color TV...and a minibar.

Remember her? She was on one of the Disney shows, and had a hit song back in 2006. She plays a stripper in the upcoming thriller "Frozen Ground", with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack. And judging by the photos that appeared online from a leaked trailer, she went for it.

Beloit College in Wisconsin just released their annual list of the things that incoming college freshmen are too young to know about. You know...the list that makes you want to SHRIVEL up and DIE of OLD AGE.

This year's freshmen are the class of 2016, so they were born in...1994. Yep. We'll just let that sink in for a second. Now, check out 18 things they're too young to know about:

#1.) For them, KURT COBAIN, JACKIE O, and RICHARD NIXON have ALWAYS been dead.

#2.) They know ROBERT DE NIRO as Greg Focker's father-in-law, not a mobster.

#3.) They've never used an actual airline ticket.

#4.) They've never had to carry their luggage, they've always rolled it.

#5.) The NFL has ALWAYS played in Jacksonville...and NEVER in Los Angeles.

#6.) They don't know why they click an icon with a picture of a floppy disk to save files.

#7.) The Secretary of State has almost always been a woman.

#8.) They think of BILL CLINTON as an elder statesman.

#9.) Women have been flying space shuttles and fighter jets the entire time they've been alive.

#10.) They've never had to use an encyclopedia.

#11.) They've always had BLUE M&Ms...and NEVER had tan ones.

#12.) They've never known life without the History Channel.

#13.) "The Real World" has ALWAYS been on the air.

#14.) They know MIKE MYERS as the voice of "Shrek", not 'Wayne' . . . and EDDIE MURPHY has always been 'Donkey', not a "Beverly Hills Cop".

#15.) Little Caesar's has been doing "Pizza Pizza" for their WHOLE LIFE.

#16.) They have no recollection of ARIANNA HUFFINGTON being a conservative.

#17.) Quoting the "Royale with cheese" from "Pulp Fiction" doesn't resonate with them.

#18.) LOU GEHRIG never had the record for most consecutive games played in their lifetime...since CAL RIPKEN broke it the year after they were born.

A company called Vertaline scanned millions of tweets a day to try to figure out which cities are most polite...and which are the rudest.

They tracked the use of two phrases on Twitter..."Good morning" and "[eff] off" see which cities said each one most often.

The city most likely to wish you good morning on Twitter is...Lubbock, Texas. Los Angeles says it a lot too.

And even though there's an old cliché about New Yorkers being rude, they tweet "Good morning" more often than people in the South.

The city most likely to tell you to "[eff] off" on Twitter is...Buffalo, New York. Los Angeles ALSO says that a lot... and so does Dallas.
