Sean Kingston Critically Injured in Jet Ski Crash!

Hip-hop star Sean Kingston is in critical condition in a Miami Beach hospital after being injured in a jet skiing accident, Sunday evening.

Kingston and a female passenger were severely injured when their jet ski struck the bridge that connects Palm Island with the MacArthur Causeway, at approximately 6 p.m, pacific time. We're told his injuries are so severe, he's being treated in a trauma room.

He has reportedly been transferred from the trauma unit to the intensive care unit at Jackson Memorial. He is in critical condition, but has been stabilized. The man who jumped into the water to save Kingston says the Beautiful Girls singer was "spitting up blood" after the accident, but that Sean was resposive and spoke during the rescue.

Officials are investigating the cause of the crash.

Movie Update: 'The Hangover 2' Kind of Fails, 'Kung Fu Panda 2' Plummets

The Hangover Part II opened on Thursday, receiving just $61.6 million. You may say that that's a substantial amount, but it's not considering the budget for the film was $80 million. It also received negative reviews from critics, with Rotten Tomatoes saying the film is a "crueler, darker, raunchier carbon copy of the first installment". However, the film has only been in theatres for 2 days, so things could go uphill from here.

Meanwhile, Kung Fu Panda 2 received just $5.8 million, with a budget of $150 million, meaning that it received less then 5% of what the producers, Paramount payed on it. Luckily, the film received positive reviews from critics, with Rotten Tomatoes giving it a 79 out of 100.

Sequels suck.

Joe Jonas to debut new single on June 3rd!

Joe Jonas, the 21-year-old singer/musician/actor/dancer that performed with his 2 brothers, Nick and Kevin until they apparently disbanded, earlier this year and who recently took over the Jonas Brothers twitter, so we're not really sure what's going on with the band - is set to release his debut solo single, See No More on Friday, June 3rd.

Hold up. Sense when did he go solo?

Well, apparently, he's been working on his solo project sense May 2010, and now he's all set to come out with a brand new solo album, entitled Fast Life set to debut sometime this year.

Fun Fact: If you re-arrange the letters F.A.S.T.L.I.F.E. it spells Trainwreck.

Okay, so maybe not, but still.

Ashton Kutcher is the different Man for the job.

The 33-year-old former That 70's Show star is set to replace Charlie Sheen, this fall in the relaunch of Two and a Half Men. Kutcher says, "I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of the people."

"Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer." Sheen began in a statement to TMZ, "Oh wait! So am I! Enjoy the show, America. Enjoy seeing a 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB."  Essentially, Charlie is saying the age group that supported him is going to tune out.

Celebrities react to death of Osama Bin Laden via twitter

Many celebrities took to Twitter to comment on the death of Osama Bin Laden. Apparently more than just Jim Carrey, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton commented on the killing, considering #obl and #osama were both trending topics on Monday.

Just landed back in LA, so happy to hear the news of Osama bin Laden's death. He was the face of terrorism and such an evil man. The world is a much better place with him not in it. -Paris Hilton
Just landed. Watching CNN, what a historical moment in the fight against hatred. -Katy Perry
Celebrating at the Mansion with the news of the death of Osama Bin Laden. Will this end terrorist attacks or increase them? -Hugh Heffner
Go USA! -Lindsay Lohan
Wow! They killed the Boogieman! I felt something was in the air tonight! Bin Laden era over! S'next? -Jim Carrey
It is a GREAT day 4 America & I'm PROUD 2 b an American -Katy Perry

I really hope bin laden didn't get reincarnated as one of Mariah Carey's babies. -Jimmy Kimmel
We hope so too, Jimmy. We hope so, too...

Comments on Bin Laden photos

According to ABC News, the photos are pretty damn gruesome -- with one report stating, "has a massive head wound above his left eye where he took bullet, with brains and blood visible."

One U.S. official who has seen the photos tells ABC, "There's no doubt it's him."

President Obama won't release Bin Laden photos

We kinda figured.

U.S. President, Barack Obama has decided that he will not release the ultra-gory photos of Osama Bin Laden's bloody, dead face to the public. (Good choice.)

White House Defense Secretary Robert Gates, along with Hillary Clinton advised Obama about concerns that releasing the photos of the dead terrorist could prompt a backlash against the United States.

"The risks of release outweigh the benefits" Obama told 60 Minutes adding, "Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East. Imagine how the American people would react if al-Qaida killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet."

The government and CIA obtained information on Bin Laden's location, last year and began the mission to finally kill Bin Laden, last week. The mission was done succesfully, on Sunday when Bin Laden was located in Pakistan, and was shot twice in the head by U.S. military.

"Osama bin Laden is not a trophy -- he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until al-Qaida has been eliminated."

According to a TMZ poll, 51% of voters want the photos to be released to the public, while 41% don't, based on 118,235 votes.

What do you think?

By the way, any photos released on the internet as of May 4th, 2011 that are claiming to be photos of the dead terrorist are fake.

Some Guy Announces 'Sonny with a Chance' Season 3 Premiere !

According to Brandon Mychal Smith, some guy who apparently plays Nico in Sonny with a Chance has confirmed that the show will return on June 5th at 8:30 p.m.

The show's lead character, Demi Lovato announced that she had quit the show, last month. For the third season, the show will be retitled, and will now focus on the show-within-a-show, So Random instead of the usual behind the scenes format. According to some cast members, the show will be sort of like a child's version of Saturday Night Live. The season premiere will also include a musical special guest.

So, will you bother to watch the show now that Lovato has officially left, or is this just a trainwreck for the Disney Channel, waiting to happen?

Sonny with a Chance, which has been retitled to So Random premieres Sunday, June 5 at 8:30pm.
