At last week’s Golden Globe Awards, co-host Tina Fey jokingly told Taylor Swift to steer clear of Michael J. Fox's 23-year-old son, Sam, who was serving as this year's Mr. Golden Globe.
The 51-year-old actor agrees with Fey’s comment. He chimed in, "Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career."
Fox said that he wouldn’t even know who Taylor Swift was if Sam brought her home, but he joked that he would remember her when the right song came out.
He said, "'Sam, You Piece of Sh-t.' Oh . . . that was the girl you brought home!"
Actress Erika Christensen is defending Scientology.
She is a lifelong member of the controversial church and said, "[People assume] we're some kind of closed group and we're just the Hollywood religion and we worship rabbits. I don't actually know how many people think that."
Christensen explained that she was raised in the church by her parents, and she would have no issue with introducing her future children to the religion's practices.
Though Scientology is often described as a cult-like religion, the actress explained that for her, its practices are more about the individual than the group.
She added, "If I had to sum it up, the goal of Scientology is giving the person back to themselves. Like, your own power of choice."
Kris Humphries plans to sue a woman for defamation and libel after she accused the NBA star of giving her herpes.
Kayla Goldberg filed a sexual battery lawsuit last year against the Brooklyn Nets player claiming she contracted herpes from him after a one night stand in August 2010.
During a status hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom on Thursday, Humphries’ lawyer said that he plans to file a counterclaim against the woman.
He also denied having the herpes virus.
The woman wants the judge to order him to take a blood test to prove that he doesn’t have the herpes virus, but Humphries claims she just filed the lawsuit against him for financial gain.
Kim Kardashian is willing to give Kris Humphries an annulment on the grounds that the marriage is fraudulent, but her mom Kris Jenner shot it down.
Sources say Kim wants to give the Brooklyn Nets star an annulment because she just wants to move on with her life and not be married when she gives birth.
But her mom shot it down because she fears that it will damage the Kardashian brand.
Sharon Osbourne accidentally set fire to their home in Beverly Hills and Ozzy got burned in the process.
Sharon left a candle burning through the night and it exploded in its glass vase and sparked a small blaze in their living room.

Firefighters quickly put out the fire before it caused any real damages.

Former child star Tatyana Ali says she cries three times a day to reduce bloating.
The 33-year-old actress, who played Will Smith's little cousin, Ashley Banks, on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” sitcom said, “I cry three times a day as part of my workout routine. It really targets the core. Great way to reduce bloating.”
Ali talked about the pressure she felt to get back in shape after studying at Harvard University.
Even though she wears a size 4, she said, “I was recently featured in a magazine in one of those ''who wore it best'' sections and I was called the ‘curvy girl’.”
She added, “It’s been a shift for me as I’ve become a little older and my body doesn’t do what it used to.”
Besides crying, Ali said she regularly dances to songs by Tori Amos.
** By the way, when she was asked about her “guilty pleasures,” she surprisingly answered, “Bread pudding with chocolate... And one-night stands.”

Grammy winner and nominee Carrie Underwood has been added to the bill for this year's ceremony.
Underwood had another great year. Her singles "So Small," "Good Girl" and "Blown Away" were all certified platinum, while "Jesus, Take the Wheel" went double-platinum. Her most recent album, "Blown Away", hit platinum status in September. The album's title track is nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance at the Grammys.
The Grammys air February 10th on CBS.
John Mayer returned to live performing for the first time in 10 months. He appeared at the "Speak for Me" benefit concert in Montana the other night.
He organized the charity gig to help firefighters who fought last year's Pine Creek fire, which destroyed over 8,500 acres of forest in Montana.
The other night, he posted a picture with the caption: "And we're back. I don't have a ton of range. I'm a 70-year-old version of myself. It's like a painter with just reds and purples."
Mayer was forced to go on an indefinite hiatus from gigs and cancel his tour last March because of a vocal cord injury. He underwent vocal cord surgery in September and was told that he wouldn’t be able to sing for up to six months.
Britney Spears' friends have spoken out about her Las Vegas residency and are worried she won't be able to cope with the pressure.
Britney recently split up with her fiancé Jason Trawick and quit "The X Factor", so her friends are worried she won't be able to handle the $100 million deal.
A source told the UK's Mail Online: "I'm not sure just how good an idea Vegas is for Britney right now. If she can't handle The X Factor, how will she be able to perform five days a week in Vegas? She's a homebody, she loves her sons and has her daily routine. At this time, she may need to concentrate on her health and happiness - not rebuilding her career."
No comment from Britney or her camp.
John Mayer has teamed up with wallet designers Barrett Alley for the limited edition "Judas Pouch".
