OVER TIME, I have seen how many readers could take issue with columnist Michelle Malkin. But her most recent column ("Lecherous celebs still livin' large," Feb. 3) actually made some sense. Ms. Malkin was dead-on accurate. Pedophilic celebrities are made to be above the law. Regardless of the accusation, they never seem to get their just rewards. Both R. Kelly and Roman Polanski have admitted to several sexual encounters with underage girls 13 to 15 years old. That on its own is statutory rape.

RE THE Feb. 11 letter on Jon Bon Jovi and the Philadelphia Soul: What really blew our minds was that "Mr. Know-It-All" Stephen Cornell said that Jon Bon Jovi, the Philadelphia Soul arena football owner, hasn't really been a celebrity for more than a decade. We hate to inform him, but for the last 20 years, Bon Jovi has been a part of the music, movie and TV worlds. He and his band have had sold out tours and sold many records. Through all this, Jon has remained a wonderful family man and father.

IWAS PLEASED to see the article about Janet Jackson being honored for her dedication to raising support for "communities across America" (Feb. 16). But the picture of Jackson that was on your cover still haunts my memory. I think you were wrong to feature her exposed breast. If we as a society are so quick to forgive and forget what celebrities say or do, was it really necessary to capture that brief second at the Super Bowl and put it on the cover of the "People Paper"? Why should her act of indecent exposure gain her more exposure?

IF A CELEBRITY car crashes in the forest and no one sees it, did the crash really happen? With celeb driving mishaps being reported at a dizzying rate, Tattle began to wonder if the problem is that celebrities can no longer steer their plush rides any better than they can steer their careers, or whether it's always been a problem - but TMZ.com and a million picture phones weren't on California's roads to capture every detail. Paris is caught weaving after drinking a margarita.

YESTERDAY'S news was all about Tuesday's midterm elections, but now that the boring stuff is over, let's turn our focus to what really matters on this page: celebrities. The Famous inundated us Joe(anne) Sixpacks with pleas to get out the vote, but Fox News reports that few put their money where their mouths were. Paparazzi were stationed at polling places all over Los Angeles, but the only celebs caught doing their civic duty were soon-to-be former Guv Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer Garner . The hypocritical behavior could easily be chalked up to absentee ballots, but Fox quoted Angie Meyer , communications director of the Young Republicans, who said that many outspoken celebrities aren't even registered.

HOW IS driving more than 100 mph while intoxicated a "tragedy"? Ryan Dunn was famous for a show that attracted people best defined as trash. What's even more comical was that the parents of his co-star "Bam" stated he was like a son to them. Well, if that's the case, Mr. and Mrs. Bam, then you both failed as well. The real tragedy would have been if Mr. Dunn killed that innocent person, and he himself had lived. If that happened, would we see some crocodile tears from the supposed "star"?

The anonymous woman who is suing a vid distributor for invasion of privacy over the '99 Scott Stapp-Kid Rock sex tape - in which she insists she played the starring role among a gaggle of other so-called strippers (sure she's disgusted by the blue film, but it's only fair that we recognize her marquee status) - is going home empty-handed. Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Gerald Hubbart ruled that Jane Doe cannot go ahead with the suit if she insists on remaining anonymous. (But, still, we recognize her essential Boldfaceness.

THE "NEW BLACK" line of thinking about racism is wack. I'm referring to recent comments by certain African-American celebrities - Pharrell Williams, Raven-Symone, Kanye West and the rapper A$AP Ferg among others - who claim racism is over and say black people need to forget the past. It's become a thing lately. Even Common has joined the fray, giving the one-sided suggestion that if blacks would love more, racism would disappear. That's all well and good for Common, who just won an Oscar for the song "Glory" in "Selma.

Her clients testified that "Black Madam" Padge-Victoria Windslowe boasted of doing buttocks-enhancement injections on celebrities, but said privacy rules would not let her name names. On Friday, in Windslowe's second day testifying in her defense at her Philadelphia murder trial in the 2011 death of a British dancer she gave silicone injections, Windslowe jettisoned privacy rules and the names started dropping. Model, hip-hop artist, and Philadelphia native Amber Rose came for silicone injections, Windslowe testified, and left "a walking billboard" for the quality of her work.

I hear that "Creed," the "Rocky" sequel featuring Sylvester Stallone, as well as Michael B. Jordan as the titular son of Carl Weathers ' character, was filming on the property of the Dominican Retreat House. In 2012, Ford filmed the little-seen thriller "Paranoia" there, along with Liam Hemsworth (who brought then-gal pal Miley Cyrus along for the ride)

AT 4 A.M. yesterday, security guards arrived at the bleachers in front of the Art Museum. By 6 a.m., spectators with tickets to the 95th annual 6ABC/Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade started to fill those seats. By 7, Mike Avello - the "No. 1 Rocky lookalike in the world," he says - posted himself 100 feet from the original's statue and high-fived fans. The less-than-2-mile parade route gave onlookers plenty: performances by singer Lance Bass, "American Idol" winner Candice Glover, and fresh-faced Radio Disney and Disney Channel stars, person-pulled giant balloons (an injury to My Little Pony made her a last-minute scratch)

RAPPERS LOVE their grandmoms, too. Meek Mill didn't have the best week last week, when a Philly jury ruled against him in his civil-rights lawsuit against two city police officers who Mill claimed illegally detained him in 2012, causing him to miss a promotional appearance and hurting his sponsorship deal with Puma. But that didn't stop Mill from celebrating his 26th birthday in Vegas. The real guest of honor? Mill's grandma, who raised the rapper and gets a shout-out in a couple of songs, including "Ready or Not" from "Dreamchasers 2. " Other Philly friends attended the weekend getaway, including boxer Danny Garcia and boxer-turned-designer Simon "One Punch" Carr . They took in the Floyd Mayweather Jr .- Marcos Maidana fight and partied it up at dayclub Rehab at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, where Khloe Kardashian , her rumored boy toy French Montana , Ludacris and Young Jeezy joined in. A tipster tells me that Mill, Ludacris and Montana gave impromptu performances throughout the day.   Wendy Williams in town How you doin', Wendy?
