Is Tina Fey a deadly weapon? Is it too early to mine the Bill Cosby rape scandal for jokes? Nope, say Golden Globe co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler . Asked by Access Hollywood if they'd broach Cosby at Sunday's awards gala, Fey immediately said, "Oh, heck, yes!" Celebs need not fear the two gals. "We don't want anyone attending to be scared to be there because of us," said Fey, who may be as beloved in Philly as Cosby once was. "In the grand scheme of the world, it couldn't be less important.

Menzel vs. Twitter, Round 1 As the universe now knows, leather-lunged Idina Menzel mutilated a high note on Wednesday night while singing the inescapable Frozen anthem "Let It Go" during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest on ABC. At once, the long, idiotic knives came out on social media and carved Idina into kibble. But she's firing back! Menzel tweeted a photo of a wise thing she said last year: "I am more than the notes I hit, and that's how I try to approach my life.

ASK, and ye shell receive. On Jan. 9, Justin Bieber got caught on video egging the home of his Calabasas, Calif., neighbor. July 9, the Biebs pleaded no contest to the messy misdemeanor. Yesterday, he paid the yolked homeowner $80,000. That's a lotta eggs, even if you go organic. But Le Biebs isn't done following all the judge's orders. Bitty B-bare still has eight more of his 12 mandated anger-management classes to attend, according to TMZ, five days of community labor (for MusiCares)

Talk about a highway to hell. Phil Rudd, drummer for Aussie rockers and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers AC/DC , was charged Thursday in a court in New Zealand (he lives there) with hiring hit men to kill two people. No word on whom he was trying to murder. Rudd's has been with AC/DC since 1974, with a break from 1983 to 1994. 'Alex From Target' gets 15 crazy minutes It might be nice to be 16-year-old Alex LaBeouf (no relation, we don't think, to actor Shia LaBeouf , but just as fun to spell)

EVERY TIME TV news jumps on a fast-breaking story, you need to remember one thing: The first reports are almost always wrong. This never was a problem in entertainment reporting because no one cared if they were a few minutes late with a celebrity story. Now it's a problem. Yesterday, following the DUI arrest of Amanda Bynes , the first reports said sources were claiming she was high on weed. Now it turns out she may have been high on Adderall or some other prescribed drug.

Happy birthday, Bruce Springsteen ! You're now old enough for Social Security benefits! (Not that you need them.) Baby Bruce was given to the light on Sept. 23, 1949, at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, N.J. A new Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press poll confirms the Boss is boss with Jerseyites. Forty-two percent say they're fans, and about a third say they own Bruce tunes. (His popularity declines as the age group gets younger.) He has a negative of only 4 percent! Strangely, about 20 percent of respondents, including 1 in 12 of those who said they were fans, didn't know he was from Jersey.

Love! Conjugal harmony! Fertility! Infecundation! The miracle of gestation! Of motherhood! Of feeling . . . sick a lot of the time, thanks.

Prince W said the last few days had been "tricky.

Our hearts broke when we found out that Arnold Schwarzenegger not only had two-timed wife Maria Shriver with their maid but actually had a child with her. And we were befuddled. How could he do this to Maria - I mean, she's a Kennedy ! Perhaps our sympathies were wasted. The New York Post claims Shriver has had a long-term lover of her very own, even though last month she began passing him off as a new boyfriend. That'd be Matthew Dowd , 53, a political correspondent for ABC News whom Shriver took as her date to cousin Bobby Kennedy 's wedding last month.

Police want Miley's pal Poor Miley Cyrus ! Even her goodwill gestures backfire! Seems the homeless man Miley brought to the VMAs Sunday to accept the best video of the year prize on her behalf is wanted by the police. Miley came to the glitzy gala accessorized with one Jesse Helt as a way to highlight the plight of homelessness. The Statesman Journal of Salem, Ore., says there's a warrant out for Helt's arrest for multiple parole violations in Oregon. Helt was paroled after a 2010 conviction for an attempted break-in at a flat in Salem.
