Madonna was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in NYC on Monday night.
She posed on the red carpet with Justin Timberlake and, inexplicably, Iggy Pop, who, like, needs to wear a shirt. I have no idea which of the voices in his head implored him to go topless in front of the cameras, but you know Madge is just sitting there like “Dude, my stomach puts yours to shame. But people will run my picture even with my clothes on. That’s where we differ, you famewhoring nobody.”

After decades of toiling in near-obscurity, a little-known musician by the name of “Madonna” will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on March 10.
Her induction will be announced by an equally unnoted artist, one Justin Timberlake.
Other inductees include Leonard Cohen, John Mellencamp, The Dave Clark Five, The Ventures and Little Walter.
Okay, so I’ve heard of John Mellencamp, and I know Leonard Cohen is that guy from that REM song, but I’ve never heard of any of the others. And “Little Walter” just sounds like the name that some old dude living in a trailer park in Montana gave to his penis.
And is Madonna even a rock musician?

Did anyone see Justin in Alpha Dog? I didn’t, but I liked him quite a bit on SNL. Still, I’m not sure if he’s got the right stuff for this:
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) – Justin Timberlake will portray fictional Hooks player Carlton Garrett in the upcoming movie The Open Road.
He’s in the film with Jeff Bridges (Aka The Dude). I think he’s better with non-sporting dramatic work personally, but this is a nice blurb:
The 27-year-old pop star tried to meet with players of the Houston Astros’ Double-A team in Austin recently, but schedules didn’t align.
If you’re keeping score that would be the schedule of JT. I’m sure the team was available. Most likely Mr. Timberlake had to track down a super model instead. Not that I blame him.

Tracking Justin Timberlake’s love life can make you as dizzy as Britney Spears right before a live performance.
But I guess he’s still with Jessica Biel.
This shot was taken of the two of them in Toronto, where JT’s shooting The Love Guru with Mike Myers and Jessica Alba.

J.T. postponed two tour dates in Northern California — one on Monday and one on Wednesday — after a doctor ordered him to rest his voice after his VMA performance.
The performance was so, so stressful on the voice of a guy who puts on a full two-hour show every other night. But the three bits he did at the VMAs just put that poor little voice right over the edge.
So, so stressful.

Remember when that was scandalous? Oh my God! A nipple! For half a second!
Ah, we used to be so innocent.
Apparently — in what must be a galaxy far, far away — people still care about that story. Because CBS is challenging a $550,000 fine issued by the Federal Communications Commission for the event, claiming that they took considerable precautions to prevent something like this from happening.
CBS’s lawyer said the network took many precautions, including choosing Jackson and Justin Timberlake over more provocative performers, reviewing the script, voicing concerns about ad-libbed remarks and applying a 5-second audio delay. But the FCC lawyer said that CBS knowingly allowed a “highly sexualized performance” to take place, without concern for the risks involved.
I think I speak for all of us when I say: Who cares???
