It's News: but not for mensa members 6/11

The Daily News reports that Sarah Palin is refusing to make amends with David Letterman – and has branded him a pervert – after the “Late Show” host joked about her 14-year-old daughter, Willow. Letterman insists he was talking about Bristol, not Willow, when he joked Monday that on a recent Palin family visit to NYC “during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
(I can't top that.)

The Daily News reports that Kate Hudson has hired a baseball expert so she can become more knowledgeable about boyfriend Alex Rodriguez’s craft. The DN also reports that Rodriguez and Hudson, who were set up by superagent/friend Adam Modin, had a major PDA during a recent visit to 40/40.
(I wonder if this 'expert' will enlighten her to the fact that baseball players f*ck a lot of chicks.)

It was reported today that Brad Pitt has purchased a painting titled, "Etappe," by the German artist Neo Rauch, according to Art Basel spokeswoman Maike Cruse. Its list price was about $960,000.
(Lana LoRusso has purchased two paintings with illegible names by the almost 2 year old artists Maya and Zoe Soskin. Their list price was $25 including art class, materials and frames.)

Megan Fox recently told GQ she’d love to see marijuana legalized and now the sultry actress is telling EW she’s not afraid to use her sex symbol status to her advantage: “You’re sold and it’s based on sex…I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded.”
(Except, of course, if you're ugly.)

The Daily News reports, that for his upcoming tour, Michael Jackson has requested a choir of child singers between the ages of 5 and 13 that’s made up of exactly equal numbers of black, white, mixed race and Asian children, according to a casting agent email. He’s also asked for six drummers who are “young adults, clean-cut and of mixed ethnicity.”
(Is the dude planning a tour or an orgy? Whoa!)

As Bret Michaels waits to find out the full extent of his injuries the rocker’s camp is voicing its frustration with the Tonys. Publicist Janna Elias says she finds it “surprising” that no one with the show has expressed their concern for his injuries and thinks if this had been Liza Minnelli or Elton John that “the Tonys would have at least sent a letter of concern.”
(I think she just answered her own question.)
