Jimmy Kimmel – Pedestrian Question – Are You Stupid? feat Casey Abrams

Look who showed up in this Jimmy Kimmel bit from last night!

Jordin Sparks Promotes Migraine Awareness in the Big Apple – Partnering with Excedrin Migraine to get the word out, Jordin Sparks attended the launch of the “Managing Migraines: Know Your Triggers, Know Your Treatment” campaign at the Herald Square in New York City on Wednesday (November 14). The “American Idol” winner looked stylish in her fall outfit of a black coat, animal-print scarf, black skirt with tights and knee-high black boots. – See the Photos at Gossip Center

Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo Celebrate People’s Sexiest Man Alive Issue (PHOTO) – Like everyone else, we’ve been eagerly anticipating People’s 2012 Sexiest Man Alive issue. (This year’s pick was “charming, chiseled” Channing Tatum, in case you weren’t aware.) And it looks as if Jordin Sparks was excited to get her hands on the magazine. But of course, the 22-year-old “American Idol” winner had an added reason to celebrate. Her boyfriend, Jason Derulo served as host for People’s launch party for the issue at New York City’s Dream Downtown hotel. Why did Derulo have the honor of emceeing the event? The pop star was one of 2011’s Sexiest Men Alive, of course. – See the Photos at People

Exclusive: Jason Trawick Mocks Fiancee Britney Spears! – Britney Spears’ constant demands that fiance Jason Trawick “check in with her” have him fuming, a source tells Us Weekly. “The romance is gone,” says the insider. Trawick, 40, “puts her on speakerphone so friends can hear her nagging.” (A rep for the X Factor star, 30, denies this, and an insider insists, “That’s not Jason’s style. They’re happy.”) But the source contends there’s turbulence ahead: “I’d be shocked if they got married.” – Read more at US Magazine

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Now Focusing on Brother Val’s Success on Dancing with the Stars – But while the Ukrainian-born dancer has made it to the final round of the immensely popular dance show four times in his 13 seasons, his elimination from the all-star competition came with an almost welcome whimper. “There’s no sting, no sting at all,” Chmerkovskiy, attending the launch event for Kimberly Snyder’s juice bar Glow Bio in West Hollywood, tells PEOPLE about Wednesday’s elimination, which sent him and partner Kirstie Alley home. – Read more at People

‘Nashville’ Insider: Pawns in the Publicity Game – For Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), resident troubled country hottie on ABC’s primetime soap Nashville, damage control means a trip to the zoo. In three moves, the flack’s work has gone exponential. Sponsors pull out, ticket sales stall and the tour cancels. Time for the PR Olympics. To make a bad girl look good requires major, not to mention humbling, moves. When in doubt, the first rule of publicity is: deflect. Your client says something stupid to Playboy, talk about anything except what was said. Tour plans, new singles, exotic video shoots, even, well, choirboys and baby animals. And so the solution for Juliette’s image problem is a distraction: a love interest in the form of a football player. – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter
