God bless America, and how's everybody?

Tina Turner moved to Switzerland Friday as France's richest man moved to Belgium to flee high taxes. Gerard Depardieu moved to Russia and Phil Mickelson is wavering. If there's ever going to be life on Mars it's going to be rich people escaping these governments.

American Idol was sued by nine contestants for discrimination Monday. They passed their audition then were told they're disqualified due to their past criminal records. This leaves politics as the only career left in America, which doesn't require a background check.

The Academy Awards got all six actors who played James Bond to appear together onstage on Oscar night. It's a good warning to the audience. You can be the hottest star in the world and in 30 years, you'll be lucky if your agent can get you into a group photo.

Sundance Film Festival was rocked by a lewd party thrown by CAA Thursday. It had lingerie models snorting prop cocaine off trays, strippers and Alice in Wonderland's rabbit strapped with sex toys. This isn't a party, it's Charlie Sheen's I Have a Dream speech.
