I would be a combination of Ferris Bueller, Zorro & the Old Spice Guy. Too much awesome for one person? #Maybe

That’s the sweetest thing you’ve ever said to me. RT @CarleneKMakeup @TravisGarland you already are Ferris Bueller

Christina Aguilera album

Fellow artists reacted to Christina Aguilera messing up the lyrics to the National Anthem before Sunday’s Super Bowl, with several showing support for the 5-time Grammy Award winner. Among ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ related Twitter messages:

Brian Littrell (@brian_littrell): What a shame to sing the wrong words for our very own National Anthem. BSB can remember the words. Chirp chirp

Jordin Sparks (@TheRealJordin): The test of a true artist is continuing even when things go a little left & not letting people know it did during the performance. #ilovextina

Toni Braxton (@tonibraxton): I’ve sung the National Anthem Acapella on more than one occasion and it’s NOT an easy song. Everyone awaits that last note. It’s very important.

Natasha Bedingfield (@natashabdnfield): She did great! She sung her heart out. Didn’t you see one of the players was so moved he was crying?! I’d like to see you try and do that!

Josh Hoge (@JoshHoge): Fu** you Christina!!!!!!!!!! You forgot the words to the National Anthem? You’re an idiot. What’s next Fergie pees herself…AGAIN??? Horsesh**.

Melody Thornton (@MelodyThornton): Christina Aguilera should not be down on herself over the #superbowl mishap. She kept going like a pro

Rob Thomas (@ThisIsRobThomas): Christina Aguilera can sing her ass off… ok. Christina was forgetting the words as I typed. But she sounded great fu**ing up.

Travis Garland (@TravisGarland): Did Christina just take “artistic liberties” with the National Anthem? Star Spangled Banner: The Remix by Christina Aguilera. (lyrics sold separately)

Benji Madden (@benjaminmadden): I think Christina did a great job on the national anthem. I would have messed up a word or 2 if I was in front of 111 mil people too! Nerve racking!

Jessica Simpson Talks With David Letterman About Ex-Boyfriends

March 12, 2010 – Jessica Simpson spilled the beans about her relationships with Tony Romo and John Mayer during an appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ on Wednesday night. When Dave asked about Mayer’s headlining making interview with Playboy magazine, where he compared the singer to “sexual napalm”, Jess said, “Normally you’d think someone you care about would keep those details to himself.

The interview video on the CBS show’s YouTube channel has since been removed.
