Bill Nye the Dancing Guy

The Queen of Pop and Pop Rocks herself, Miss Britney Spears, is counting down to something. On her official Facebook page and website, the singer has had a countdown for a couple of weeks now, hinting that something will be revealed on Tuesday, Sept. 17. Speculation is running wild, but most seem to believe she’ll reveal her eighth studio album on that date. However, I think we should give room to more theories. Maybe it’s a countdown to the end of time (Britney did say keep on dancing until the world ends, and she has not been dancing). Or perhaps it’s a slow tick toward Britney and JT getting back together. I still believe. Whatever it may be, I just hope Britney remembers to wake up to tell us what it is.

If you’re still watching “Dancing with the Stars,” the wait is finally over.

The new cast has been revealed! Headliners include Snooki, Valerie Harper, Leah Remini, Jack Osborne, Keyshawn Johnson, Christina Milan, Amber Riley, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Bill Engvall, Corbin Bleu, Brant Daugherty and BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY. I’m definitely rooting for the man who taught me everything I know about science from ’90s AV equipment. Other stars I’m excited to see dance are Corbin “Cordon” Bleu and Jack Osborne. Hopefully Jack doesn’t bring any of his father’s bats to the set.

Just in case your childhood wasn’t as dead as Lil Kim’s career, here’s another blow — Dakota Fanning has a boyfriend. That’s not even the worst part. He’s 32 years old. First of all, you’re probably screaming right now. Partly because you think Dakota Fanning is 7 years old. Wrong. She’s a blooming 19. That’s right. Our favorite child actress is no longer a child (or even an actress?) All I know is, she has grown up fast and is touting around a guy that could teach her geometry. (Does she know geometry yet?)
