Robert Pattinson made his first post-scandal appearance on "The Daily Show" last night, and it was a little awkward, but definitely entertaining. Jon Stewart started the interview off by breaking out the Ben and Jerry's ice cream. And he said, "We're just a couple-a gals talking." They did reference the Kristen Stewart thing for the first few minutes, without actually saying her name. Rob admitted he didn't really know what to say because, "I'm cheap, I didn't hire a publicist." The closest anyone came to making a direct comment about the scandal was when Jon, in a "sassy chick" kind of voice, said, "Boy, you are better off! Kick her to the curb!" Rob is doing press right now for his next movie, "Cosmopolis", which comes out in limited release this Friday. Tomorrow, he'll be on "Good Morning America", and he's also doing a 30-minute interview with MTV.com on Thursday night.
Kelly Clarkson performed "Lose Yourself" during a show in Eminem's hometown of Detroit on Friday night. She even put on a hoodie. Afterward, she said, "It's so hard! I have all this saliva in my mouth and I have nowhere to go with it. I can't swallow, there's no time to breathe."
Miley Cyrus will guest star on "Two and a Half Men" this coming season. She's playing a "love interest" for Jake, Angus T. Jones' character. According to the "Hollywood Reporter", her character is described as "a sexy new girl in town with a comedic streak." It's unclear if this is just a one-episode thing or if she'll stick around for multiple episodes. For what it's worth, Angus will be 19 in October and Miley will be 20 in November.
"The Voice" has announced two new twists for its upcoming season. First off, the coaches will have the ability to steal contestants from each other during the "battle rounds." Basically, when a coach cuts the losing singer, one of the other coaches can choose to buzz in and "claim" that contestant. Here's how it works out: As usual, each coach starts with 16 singers, which is reduced to eight during the battle rounds. But coaches can "claim" two discarded singers from another team, which brings their total to 10. Then comes something new called the "knockout round," where the teams will be whittled down to five. The 10 singers will each perform on a stool in a boxing ring, and the top five on each team will go on to the live shows. Season Three premieres on September 10th on NBC.
