Best friends just wanna have fun. Joined at the hip, they like to crawl the mall, club hop during a girls' night out, lounge and luxuriate on spa vacations. But when your BFF is Oprah Winfrey, the queen - all hail! - of television, fairy godmother to America, benefactor to the world, the gal who out-trumps Trump, fun takes on a whole new dimension. Imagine it: jetting off to South Africa to cut the ribbon for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, a 52-acre, state-of-the-art facility.

At the sold-out Ben Folds Five show at the Theatre of Living Arts on Wednesday, some yahoo yelled out, "Play the bitch song!", a reference to the playful temper-tantrum "Song for the Dumped" from the BFF's new Whatever and Ever Amen (Columbia). Ben Folds, the piano-pumping frontman of the BFF (which, by the way, is a trio), stopped everything. "The big song?" he asked, playing dumb. Then, on the spot, he concocted a song with the latter title that started out as a lounge-jazz groove and turned into a hand-clapping pop-rock romp complete with silly lyrics.

Q: I am getting a divorce and finding that I'm in love with my best friend. It seems that the two are related, but they are not. I was already at the end of my marital rope when I discovered that my BFF was the man of my dreams. He has been my best friend since 1986-87 and is someone whom I talk to about everything.

The high school sex comedy "Easy A" takes its scarlet letter plot from Hawthorne, but it's all about Emma Stone. The young star, who's been on the periphery of funny comedies like "Zombieland" and "Superbad," gets a chance to sparkle as the centerpiece of "Easy A. " The performance is a gem, though it's not exactly in a platinum setting - "Easy A" is an arch, preciously written (there are characters named Rosemary and Dill) story about a teen who pretends to be a "super-slut" to help classmates with various sexual anxieties.

In the lingo of fourth-grade girldom, Noelle Bucha and Danielle Littlepage call themselves BFF - best friends forever. Both love to shop, have little sisters and agree that boys are just gross. As they posed for a picture with their arms slung around each other's shoulders, heads nodded together and grinning brightly, it was hard to believe that the two had spent only eight days together over the last nine months. The reason is distance, both culturally and geographically.
