Saturday morning coffee

- Perhaps reports of the Grammy Awards demise are premature. In another example of the success of this year's awards show, it's now reported that Lady Gaga's new single, "Born This Way," is the fastest-selling song in iTunes history. Gaga unveiled the song live on last Sunday's Grammy telecast.

- American Idol continues to be a television ratings juggernaut. The show attracted 21.9 viewers on Thursday as it pared the field of contestants down to 60.

- Speaking of Idol, look for judge Jennifer Lopez to get very emotional in an upcoming episode when one contestant, in particular, gets dismissed.

- Worldwide opinion is that America is the land of conspicuous consumption. But, on one list, the U.S. isn't even close to the top. The World Health Organization released a report on the "drunkest countries in the world." The top ten are the Republic of Moldova, Czech Republic, Hungary, Russian Federation, Estonia, Ukraine, Andorra, Slovenia, Belarus, and Croatia. Apparently there's a lot of vodka being swigged, er, gulped, in those countries.

- In the category of "huh?", spurned contestant Michelle Money, from The Bachelor, is aghast that she became this season's villain. Said Money to, "I never in a million years expected to be the villain. I was actually surprised and shocked by it in the beginning. I'm an easy target because I'm upfront and honeest." How about "catty and bitchy" instead?
