The hits just keep on coming

J.P. Calderon, the hottest guy from the last season of Survivor (well, except for winner Yul), is apparently coming out tomorrow night on The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, in case you care. Hopefully his Instinct photo spread will include plenty of semi-nude pics.
Watching Serena Williams battle her way into the Australian Open semis last night was grueling, but exhilarating. She beat 16th seed Shahar Peer 3-6, 6-2, 8-6. It's the first time Serena's been this far in any tournament, let alone a Slam, since she won in Melbourne 2 years ago. (Also: listening to Mary Carillo and Pam Shriver call a match [on ESPN2] is a blast.) I especially love this quote from Serena:
"Definitely ready to create some more carnage," she added with a smile. "I feel absolutely no pressure. I don't think anyone thought I would get this far, except for me and my mom."
Up next, 10th seed Nicole Vaidisova. Winner's in the championship. Do you really want to bet against Ms. Williams at this point?
Yawn. Wake me when it's over. I mean: the Chili Peppers? A RATM reunion? This is the best Coachella can do?
Mika's "Grace Kelly" sounds like the great lost Freddie Mercury single, and is better than anything on the last Scissor Sisters album. (Let's be honest.) It's also the first great pure pop record of 2007. If his forthcoming debut, Life in Cartoon Motion, is as good as this, he'll be a candidate for rookie of the year.
