In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Channing Tatum gets People Magazine‘s top honour and the media gets a little too serious on the Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez split.
HIT: Channing Tatum named People‘s “Sexiest Man of 2012″
I’m not going to lie, this is more of a half-hearted hit. I, like the rest of the internet, believed that the honour would finally go to Ryan Gosling. Seriously, the People’s Sexiest Man Alive award is like the Oscars for him: his name gets thrown around a lot but he never gets the prize. On the other hand, Tatum had a fantastic year. Between 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike (!!), and the three other movies he put out this year, Tatum really got the chance to show
off his butt his acting skills.
MISS: Media analysis of the Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez split
I can’t help but shake my head whenever I see another entertainment show talk about the Bieber/Gomez break-up. Every entertainment host I’ve seen has used the kind of sad, serious tone that should only be reserved for disasters when they analysis “what went wrong.” Bieber and Gomez are 18- and 20-years-old respectively. Dear entertainment tools, what do you think happened? Breaking up with someone is hard, but to do it under such scrutiny is unimaginable. Just let them be!
HIT: iCarly fans to finally meet Carly’s dad
I don’t even watch the show, but from what I’ve heard, Carly’s dad is a colonel in the army and hasn’t been in a single episode of iCarly until now. I don’t want to spoil the plot for anyone so I’ll just leave that revelation at that (EW will spoil it though). I do suspect that this will be one tearjerker of an episode because it’s probably one of the sweetest storylines I’ve ever read. Prepare thy tissue boxes!

Details: Emma Watson is studying English at Brown University, in Rhode Island. During her third year (last year) she did an exchanged at Oxford University so she could study at home.
Details: Miranda Cosgrove will be attending University of Southern California this fall after she finishes shooting iCarly. Although she really wanted to go to NYU, she decided to stay in LA so she could continue acting.

Apparently Miranda Cosgrove or Mother Cosgrove is actually the Queen of Tumblr (didn’t you know?). Her fans will do anything for the actress/singer, whether that means supporting her at the Teen Choice Awards, turning her into a wiener or suggesting she’d be spectacular in a Michael Jackson biopic (above).
