JESSICA SIMPSON, ELTON JOHN AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE – are the 3 biggest names rumored to replace Simon Cowell on American Idol, but Simpson hasn’t been offered the job, and John and Timberlake turned it down. Sean Combs says he’ll do it, and that might be the smoothest transition because Diddy would just play an old clip of Simon talking and then scream shit like “2010!” and “yeah!” over it. (e! and people)

GEORGE CLOONEY – has dated Elisabetta Canalis since last year, so he didn’t know her in 2008 when she was doing coke in an Italian club with a French model and prostitute named Karima Menad, who testified to all this in a Milan court yesterday. What a sexy trial! (us)

LINDSAY LOHAN - is still getting special treatment in jail, demanding things like Ben and Jerrys, and it “sparked a near riot overnight as unrest grew over what inmates claim is preferential treatment. They furiously chanted threats and hammered on their cell walls, while others refused to leave their cells for recreation or meals.” I just hope Lindsays ice cream didn’t melt while the guards had to deal with those non-famous pieces of shit.

ANNALYNNE MCCORD – of ’90210′ was the highlight of the CBS Press Tour yesterday in Beverly Hills. Original ’90210′ star Shannen Doherty was the highlight of a nearby dumpster, where she found a Duran Duran tape. (wenn)
