Let's get ready to rumble... it's the non-feudiest celebrity feud ever. Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake are not in a battle, but they are not at odds, working constantly at Brandi Glanville levels of competition to best one another at the fame game. But damn, are they doing a lot of the same things at the exact same time! Take, for example, Timberlake's tease for a new documentary about the making of his album on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. Sounds a wee bit familiar, no? (Queen B's self-directed doc hits HBO Feb. 16.)
While they may not be willing to fight it out, we can't help but wonder, who's playing the fame game better right now?
Round 1: Revival, Ahoy!
Who cares about the Oscars anymore, really? The same day that the Academy announced its 2013 honorees, JT and Bey took to social media to announce some seriously huge news of their own.
Justin's shot: The 1-2 Punch
The night before his big announcement, Timberlake took to Twitter to tease some big news, simply saying, "Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST..." The talented teaser followed that up with a link to his website and the phrase "I'M READY." The result was a video teasing his long (long, long, long) awaited return to the studio. And, with that, the sound of a million women passing out could be heard across the globe.
Beyonce's Shot: The Upper Cut
Oh really? There are two other huge announcements today? And both were teased ahead of time? Well, Bey isn't worried. She knows that when she posts notice of her new album and a photo of the Destiny's Child reunion and a link to pre-order their new music the world would lose its mind. And boy, were the minds lost because we had no idea it was even coming.
Ding, Ding, Ding: Beyoncé wins for her use of the element of surprise. JT's pre-pre-announcement on Twitter the night before posting a vague video is bested by Beyoncé's simple Facebook post without warning. The shock was much greater, and so was the impact.

Round 2: Delivering the Goods
Announcements are great, but the only reason they get us all riled up is that they lead to a product. In this case, the product is music that we hope can live up to the original greatness of both JT's and DC's catalogs.
Justin's Offering: A Little Pop of the Collar
"Suit & Tie" disappointed many fans by failing to live up to the incredibly gold standards of "SexyBack" and "What Goes Around (Comes Back Around)." Still, the song has swag (and if that's not enough, it's got Jay-Z, too).
Beyonce's Offering: "Emotions" Round 2
While fans were going on and on about how disappointing JT's first return effort was, the disappointment can't hold a candle to the epic boredom inspired by Destiny's Child's new song, "Nuclear." The song was so boring, the trio didn't even debut it at the Super Bowl as they'd planned (likely for fear that people might be snoozing before B got to her big finish).
Ding, Ding, Ding: Justin wins this round. "Suit & Tie" is like "Damn Girl" off FutureSex/LoveSounds: it's catchy, and we're dancing, but we know JT can do better. "Nuclear" is like "Emotions," minus the part where the song has actually feelings. And face it, ladies: no one lists their favorite DC song as "Emotions."
Round 3: The Super Bowl
The biggest night in sports was hijacked by the music industry as both Beyoncé (with Destiny's Child) and Justin gave long-awaited performances for their fans. Sorry, Ravens.
Justin: Just Accept That You've Already Lost This One
Timberlake made a valiant effort to be as relevant as Beyoncé during the hubbub of the Super Bowl, giving his first performance the night before at a DirecTV party and playing not one, but two new tracks. And they were fantastic. They really were. If we were awarding points for effort here, JT would take the cake. But unfortunately, effort doesn't mean victory.
Beyonce: Killed It
Has anyone you know been talking about anything other than Beyoncé's halftime show for the past two days? If your answer is "Yes," aren't you looking for a way to direct their attention away from John Kerry, the Baltimore Ravens, and their friends and family so you can talk about how you had a dream that you pulled a Freaky Friday with Bey for 24 hours and how it was the best dream you've ever had in your life? Our girl and her explosive halftime show are still trending on Google and the performance ended over 40 hours ago. Those are light years in Internet time, and we're still furiously searching for videos and GIFs.
Ding, Ding, Ding: You're kidding, right? Queen B, all the way.

Round 4: A Life on Film
Both of our beloved performers are now releasing their own true-life films about their lives. And yes, we are hungry for every last second of these documentaries. No, we don't have a problem. This is perfectly healthy.
Justin's Reveal: How to Make Another Album
JT is giving us an inside look at the album that took years of fans' begging to make happen. We asked for it, and it looks like we're about to get more than we ever bargained for. (We're still guaranteed to love it. How could we not?)
Beyoncé's Reveal: Her Life Story
Beyoncé has been extremely, extremely closed about her personal life. Perhaps that's why every little glimpse we get of her, her beau, and their precious little bundle of joy sends us into fits of joy. It's rare. As well as we know (and love) B's every little trick on stage (hair flip, FTW!), we know very little of her personal life. She told a room of reporters that the reveal of her documentary, which she edited herself, leaves her "scared."
Ding, Ding, Ding: Beyoncé, again. A pop idol giving us a behind-the-scenes look at his new album versus one of the most powerful and beloved women in the world revealing herself so candidly that it scares her? There's no contest.

Round 5: Jet-setting
What follows the announcement of a new album? A tour. That's right: a long, glorious parade of costumes and epic solos as fans cry tears of immeasurable joy.
Justin's Itinerary: One Show. One.
Justin has yet to announce a tour. Instead, his fans were forced to clamor for the instantly sold-out, one night only show at Hollywood's Palladium on Feb. 10. That's it. No. Fair.
Beyoncé's Itinerary: Globe-trotter
Mrs. Carter (her actual married name and the name of her tour) will fly around the world, delivering her fierceness to fans everywhere and ending the journey with a homecoming show at her hubby's hub: the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The announcement came with plenty of pomp: a video featuring Beyoncé looking like royalty, covered in jewels and fine clothing. All we can say is, "When can we buy our ticket?"
Ding, Ding, Ding: It's B. Call us when you've got a tour set up, Justin.

If there's one thing 19-year-old Taylor Momsen loves as much as her raccoon eyeliner, it's shocking people. And, by George, she's done it again! On Friday, Momsen and her band, The Pretty Reckless, uploaded a spoken word video for Amp Rock TV's series, "The Words," to YouTube. The video features fragmented images of Momsen, clad only in her signature smudged eye makeup, narrating a verse to her song "Under the Water."
Momsen's transformation from adorable little Cindy Lou Who to Gossip Girl's innocent Jenny Humphrey and finally to the dark and angsty lead singer of The Pretty Reckless has been dramatic. With this new video, it seems nearly complete. Momsen has graduated from flashing audiences at her concerts to appearing completely nude, and (pardon my French), she doesn't give a f**k.
Since declaring that she has quit acting in August of 2011, Momsen has taken what it means to "be a rockstar" to heart, fully embracing the sex and drugs (at least in her lyrics and interviews) that go with the label.
Check out Momsen's revealing video below, and respond to our poll: Do you think Taylor has taken her bad girl image too far?

I know you've sat around a bar and played the old "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game where you prove how every actor is somehow connected to Kevin Bacon based on their costars. Well, Google is now here to help. Go to search site (or just to that little bar that is probably at the top of this browser with the little G logo in it) and punch in any actors name followed by "Bacon Number". How handy!
The problem is practically every actor you can think of is two degrees away from Kevin Bacon. Well, Mr. Bacon himself is a zero (I mean that literally, not figuratively) and anyone who has been in a movie with him (Denise Richards, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kevin Costner, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks) is a 1, but everyone else you can think of is only two degrees away. Check all these out.
So far the only times I've managed to get someone with a Bacon Number higher than 2 is by going with someone who is really old (Al Jolson, Humphrey Bogart, Shirley Temple) or someone who hasn't been in very many movies (Terrence Malick). All of those people earned a 3. The only time I've found someone with a 4 was Justin Bieber, someone who is not even an actor at all.
Thanks, Google, for downgrading this to the "Two or Maybe One Degree of Kevin Bacon" game. But now we have a new game. It's the "Who Is More Than Two Degrees Away from Kevin Bacon?" game. Let us know if you can stump Google's joy-killing engine.

There is something particularly unnerving about demon possession. It's the idea of something you can't see or control creeping into your body and taking up residence eventually obliterating all you once were and turning you into nothing more than a sack of meat to be manipulated. Then there's also the shrouded ritual around exorcisms: the Latin chants the flesh-sizzling crucifixes and the burning Holy Water. As it turns out exorcism isn't just the domain of Catholics.
The myths and legends of the Jews aren't nearly as well known but their creepy dybbuk goes toe-to-toe with anything other world religions come up with. There are various interpretations of what a dybbuk is or where it comes from — is it a ghost a demon a soul of a sinner? — but in any case it's looking for a body to hang out in for a while. Especially according to the solemn Hasidic Jews in The Possession an innocent young person and even better a young girl.
The central idea in The Possession is that a fancy-looking wooden box bought at a garage sale was specifically created to house a dybbuk that was tormenting its previous owner. Unfortunately it caught the eye of young Emily (Natasha Calis) a sensitive artistic girl who persuades her freshly divorced dad Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan of Watchmen and Grey's Anatomy) to buy it for her. Never mind the odd carvings on it — that would be Hebrew — or how it's created without seams so it would be difficult to open or why it's an object of fascination for a young girl; Clyde is trying really hard to please his disaffected daughters and do the typical freshly divorced parent dance of trying to please them no matter the cost.
Soon enough the creepy voices calling to Emily from the box convince her to open it up; inside are even creepier personal objects that are just harbingers of what's to come for her her older sister Hannah (Madison Davenport) her mom Stephanie (Kyra Sedgwick) and even Stephanie's annoying new boyfriend Brett (Grant Show). Clyde and Stephanie squabble over things like pizza for dinner and try to convince each other and themselves that Emily's increasingly odd behavior is that of a troubled adolescent. It's not of course and eventually Clyde enlists the help of the son of a Hasidic rabbi a young man named Tzadok played by the former Hasidic reggae musician Matisyahu to help them perform an exorcism on Emily.
The Possession is not going to join the ranks of The Exorcist in the horror pantheon but it does do a remarkable job of making its characters intelligent and even occasionally droll and it offers up plenty of chills despite a PG-13 rating. Perhaps it's because of that rating that The Possession is so effective; the filmmakers are forced to make the benign scary. Giant moths and flying Torahs take the place of little Reagan violently masturbating with a crucifix in The Exorcist. Gagging and binging on food is also an indicator of Emily's possession — an interesting twist given the anxieties of becoming a woman a girl Emily's age would face. There is something inside her controlling her and she knows it and she is fighting it. The most impressive part of Calis's performance is how she communicates Emily's torment with a few simple tears rolling down her face as the dybbuk's control grows. The camerawork adds to the anxiety; one particularly scary scene uses ordinary glass kitchenware to great effect.
The Possession is a short 92 minutes and it does dawdle in places. It seems as though some of the scenes were juggled around to make the PG-13 cut; the moth infestation scene would have made more sense later in the movie. Some of the problems are solved too quickly or simply and yet it also takes a while for Clyde's character to get with it. Stephanie is a fairly bland character; she makes jewelry and yells at Clyde for not being present in their marriage a lot and then there's a thing with a restraining order that's pretty silly. Emily is occasionally dressed up like your typical horror movie spooky girl with shadowed eyes an over-powdered face and dark clothes; it's much more disturbing when she just looks like an ordinary though ill young girl. The scenes in the heavily Hasidic neighborhood in Brooklyn look oddly fake and while it's hard to think of who else could have played Tzadok an observant Hasidic Jew who is also an outsider willing to take risks the others will not Matisyahu is not a very good actor. Still the filmmakers should be commended for authenticity insofar as Matisyahu has studied and lived as a Hasidic Jew.
It would be cool if Lionsgate and Ghost House Pictures were to release the R-rated version of the movie on DVD. What the filmmakers have done within the confines of a PG-13 rating is creepy enough to make me curious to see the more adult version. The Possession is no horror superstar and its name is all too forgettable in a summer full of long-gestating horror movies quickly pushed out the door. It's entertaining enough and could even find a broader audience on DVD. Jeffrey Dean Morgan can read the Old Testament to me any time.
Choose Your Own Adventure Movie
SyFy Channel, in a fit of unlikely genius, has decided to let the internet create its next original movie. The stupidly-spelled network is launching a new website, B Movie Mogul, where fans can pitch and vote on film ideas, from plot and setting to dialogue and character deaths. SyFy seems to be severely underestimating the perversion potential of the internet at large if they think that any of the suggestions will be FCC appropriate. I give it about 15 minutes before 4chan finds the site and floods it with votes for Mega Shark Vs. Giant Pedobear or something.
Highs And Lows' Low Price Alert
The Barnes And Noble bargain gods must be feeling generous, or glitchy, because there’s a massive sale on comics today. There’s nothing on the list I’ve been dying to read, but if you’ve been on the fence about Ultimate X-Men, 30 Days Of Night or Secret Invasion, this is the time to make the plunge. It’s also a great opportunity to sample something new, like Teenagers From Mars, or learn from the classics, like the Windsor McCay collection. Or, if you don’t read comics yourself, to pick up manga in bulk to appease any tween girls in the household. Just steer clear of Oldboy.
Alpha And Omega Is A Load Of Kappa
Okay, I know that I’m really not the target audience for Alpha and Omega, since I’m not a 6 year old who’s been Ritalin’d into a coma. So I’m not going to rag on it too badly, other than saying that just because something is animated, in 3-D, or for kids, does not excuse the fact that it sucks. There’s been so many high-quality children’s movies out as of late (look at the ridiculously positive reviews Toy Story 3 has been getting) that this should really go without saying, but it doesn’t. While Alpha and Omega is technically a Lions Gate film, I keep getting reminded of the ‘Difference Between Pixar and Dreamworks' chart.
Kids are really, really easy to entertain, and this encourages a lot of people who make kids films to get lazy. You can get away with showing kids a lot of sub-par movies by sticking in fart jokes and rapping animals and Robin Williams. (The whole reliance on celebrity voices thing doesn’t make any sense to me though, why would kids care that Danny Glover and Dennis Hopper are in a film?) It’s perfectly understandable why parents want to distract their offspring with movies, whether they’re Citizen Kane or not, just to get a few hours piece and quiet. But showing your kids only movies like this one, movies that are nothing but pop-culture references and wacky facial expressions is like trying to raise them on nothing but movie popcorn.
