Simon Cowell
Forbes magazine just released its list of the highest paid TV personalities, and Howard Stern and Simon Cowell tied for the top spot.

"The X Factor" judge and radio host each made $95 million between June, 2012, and June, 2013. Ironically (or maybe not really), Stern is a judge on Cowell's popular series "America's Got Talent." They are definitely sharing the wealth.

Cowell has been making headlines recently for having a fling with a married woman, who wound up getting pregnant. Oh, and she happens to be the estranged wife of his friend Andrew Silverman. Oops!

Rush
Canadian rockers Rush have joined Peter Gabriel in a creative boycott of popular broadcaster Rush Limbaugh's talk radio show.

Gabriel demanded that his music be removed from the conservative talk radio star's daily show after learning his song Sledgehammer was used during the broadcaster's attack on a student who had testified at a Congressional hearing on contraception.

The rocker was "appalled" to learn the track was part of Limbaugh's radio rant, in which he called Georgetown, Washington, D.C. student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and "a prostitute" for arguing that her university's health i...

Elton John
Elton John is convinced he can force outspoken radio host Rush Limbaugh to relax his stance against gay marriage after performing at his wedding.

The British rocker was stunned when Limbaugh invited him to play at the ceremony because he always thought the hardline conservative was anti-gay.

He tells the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, "I could not believe when I was asked to play. I thought it was a joke. I had dialogue with him before and he said, 'I'm not anti-gay, I want you to come, bring (partner) David (Furnish).'"

And now Elton is hoping to use his relationship with Limbaugh...

Oprah Winfrey
Oprah's been having a great season so far. She's interviewed Whitney Houston on the Bobby years, gone to Marcy Projects with Hova, and uncovered Mackenzie Phillips' controversial past with her father. O's definitely on a roll, but we'd like to see these celebs as guests on her show:

Lil' Wayne

A man who drinks codeine instead of water and eats candy instead of real food has got to make for an interesting conversation. He said he was a Martian, and we believe him. Also, some time in the studio with this guy must be an experience. It would be a slightly nonsensical interview, but entert...
