He may not be a movie star, but when it comes to being happy, we are.

Apparently, a woman jumped a barrier and dragged down the Pope on Christmas Eve. Let me first say that I'm glad the Pope was unharmed in this incident, and my best wishes go out to the cardinal whose hip was fractured in the attack.

However, I must admit that when I first saw the footage (first ten to fifteen seconds)...

...I immediately thought of this...

Maybe there was just someone on the other side of the aisle that had plans to get themselves killed by vampires. There's totally something about that in the Book of Revelation, right?

One of these things is EXACTLY THE SAME as the other...

This is Selena Gomez's music video for "Naturally." Watch as much as your eyes can handle, and then move on to the next one.

Her video seems so familiar. Oh wait...

Be the Jessica to my Elizabeth? If my name was Elizabeth? And we were twins?

In all the Twilight hubbub, one delightful actress has slipped through the shirtlessness-obsessed, anxious hands of Twihards everywhere. Anna Kendrick, who played Jessica in both the first and second installations of the TWILIGHT SAGA, is gaining popularity as well as my undying love.

She probably got the best deal out of all the actors in the TWILIGHT SAGA, as she gained much of the fame that the main characters did, got to be in one of the highest grossing films of the year, and yet she managed to avoid getting dangerously stalked...except by me, of course. Also, it's common knowledge that characters that aren't trapped in a bottomless pit of angst don't get many lines in the Twilight movies, but she really stole the show with her lines in New Moon.

Now she's starring opposite George Clooney in Up In The Air, and her performance has earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Oh, and she's the second youngest Tony nominee. Y'know, no big.

After I heard all this, I liked her, but it wasn't until after I saw her interview on Jay Leno last night that I officially began my Amanda-Please-style infatuation. During the face-to-face interview, Kendrick likened herself to Scrappy Doo, scolded Jay for being a road-douche, and evaded Leno's semi-vulgar innuendos with "What kind of girl do you think I am?" Later, she participates in Leno's car race, and he continues to ask her ridiculous questions while she's driving A REAL CAR. She responds, and I paraphrase, Dude, I'm not going to answer your questions right now; I am driving a car.

Hey, Anna, if you want to hang out, I promise I won't ditch you to endanger myself in order to hallucinate about my ex-boyfriend. Promise.

Breaking News: MTV Regains 'Crap Monkey' Status

Apparently, I spoke too soon. It's On with Alexa Chung will NOT be returning after it's December 17th season finale. There is only one way I can fully communicate my feelings on this subject...

This Just In: MTV NOT a Hellmouth...

Y'know, I lost my faith in MTV a long time ago due to their horrific programming that rarely includes actual music. Alexa Chung made me pause and reconsider this stance over the summer, but all her good work was quickly undone by Jersey Shore and the fact that The Hills has been picked up for ANOTHER SEASON. However, it turns out that MTV will start playing old Buffy, the Vampire Slayer episodes in the new year, beginning with an 18-hour marathon on New Year's Day. It's a slow climb to decency, MTV, but you're off on the right foot.

I'm almost positive that I have a signed copy of the photo above somewhere in my house...if only I knew where.

Hey now, hey now, this is what dreams are made of...

Although the cast of When in Rome has me drooling all over my keyboard, I fear it will, in fact, be an hour and 40 minute long reminder that Kristen Bell is not actually Veronica Mars.

P.S. Dear Mr. or Ms. Casting Director, I felt dirty when Alexis Dziena (Bell's character's sister) was being all sexy in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and now she's playing a bride? That gives me a weird this-should-be-illegal feeling, and, oh hey, the only physical similarity she has with Bell is her height. K THANX.
