The Entertation Index: December 3
Adkins, Trace – The country singer drew criticism last week when he used a Confederate flag earpiece while performing for the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting. He explained that it wasn’t meant to offend, but to honor his Southern heritage. He also reportedly mentioned that after using failed earpieces in the past, this one was sure to “make the sound rise again.”

Kardashian, Khloe – The probably-tallest Kardashian sister gave Mario Lopez some advice regarding his upcoming wedding: “You and your partner should take a few minutes to yourselves and just watch the whole thing from the audience. Lamar and I will now talk about those little moments, because you get pulled away from each other. You shouldn’t spend your whole wedding not with each other.” Khloe seems to have her shit together, but still—take marriage advice from a Kardashian at your own risk.

Kelly, R. – The R&B singer is, apparently for real, writing a Trapped in the Closet book that will give the background to characters Rufus, Chuck, Sylvester, Pimp Lucius, Bridget, and Little Man. Think of this as Kelly’s Silmarillion to Trapped in the Closet’s The Lord of the Rings. It makes total sense if you think about it.

Slater, Christian – The Heathers actor was informed that the provisional ballot that he cast in Florida this last election day was rejected because the signatures on his ballot and voter registration supposedly didn’t match. After reviewing his acting choices since the previous election, maybe the system really does work!

Wars, Star – Fight Club’s David Fincher, who got his start as a cameraman on Return of the Jedi, has been discussed as a possible director for the next Star Wars film. Had he directed an earlier one, we could have heard Vader saying, “I am Luke’s complete and utter surprise.”
