Modern romance—it's so difficult, isn't it? Whereas in the old days, Alex Rodriguez could just saunter up to any strong-jawed women he desired, announce his batting average and annual salary, and then take it from there, the times (and his batting average) have changed. In fact, celebrities all over are rediscovering the joys of honest-to-goodness dating, as evidenced by the plethora of power couples (plus whoever that guy Kat Dennings is with) spotted at the Lakers game Tuesday night.

Christina Aguilera got the National Anthem right when she was 11, not so much at 30. Arianna Huffington was the true winner of the Super Bowl, and Nick Denton called me a "nasty piece of work" (!). But I'd rather be a piece of work than a blank screen. Gawker's redesign launch today is an epic fail. Also, check out my partner, Cameron Winklevoss and his brother Tyler on the Daily! More»
New York Yankees player CC Sabathia did it big with Jay-Z for his 30th birthday last night at the rap star's 40/40 Club. Celebrities in attendance included Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, Talia Coles and model Tyson Beckford. The birthday boy looked great in a light gray casual sports coat, dark jeans and matching sneakers.
