Muslim Extremists Want David Letterman Dead



DAVID LETTERMAN is the target of Muslim extremists . . . and he might want to take the threat seriously.

--Apparently, Letterman told a joke during a recent show mocking the death of an accused terrorist leader named Ilyas Kashmiri . . . who was killed by a U.S. air strike in Pakistan in June.

--SITE Intelligence Group . . . a private company that watches the Internet for signs of terrorist activity . . . says the threat appeared on a website that's known to be used by al-Qaeda.

--Whoever posted the threat called for someone to, quote, "cut the tongue of this lowly Jew and shut it forever."  (--Letterman isn't Jewish.)

--He added, quote, "He showed his evil nature and deep hatred for Islam and Muslims, and said that Ilyas Kashmiri was killed and he joined bin Laden.

--"We ask Allah to paralyze his tongue and grant the sincere monotheists his neck."

--Because of the nature of the website the threat appeared on, Site Intelligence is advising Letterman to keep an eye out, and take precautions as if he were being stalked.

--The website in question is called Shumukh-al-Islam.  And SITE Intelligence describes it as, quote, "a clearing house for al-Qaeda material."  It's often the first place messages from al-Qaeda appear in the U.S.

--SITE is currently trying to uncover the identity of the poster.  Letterman's people declined to comment.

Abercrombie Vs. The Situation Fallout: MTV Says It's a Publicity Stunt, and They're Probably Right

MTV has responded to Abercrombie & Fitch's offer to The Situation to pay him to STOP wearing their clothes.

--MTV said, quote, "It's a clever PR stunt, and we'd love to work with them on other ways they can leverage 'Jersey Shore' to reach the largest youth audience on television."

--The Situation hasn't directly responded to Abercrombie, but he did Tweet, quote, "Looks like Abercrombie got themself into a Situation!"  He also linked to a CNN article saying that Abercrombie's stock fell 9% after they dissed "Jersey Shore".

--A so-called "source" tells MTV that Abercrombie never attempted to make an offer PRIVATELY to The Situation or to the show . . . so it was only done in the press.



The Only Artists to Have Five Songs Off One Album Go #1 Are: Michael Jackson . . . and Now, Katy Perry

Up through last month, only ONE artist had ever managed to have FIVE #1 singles from ONE album in the 53-year history of Billboard's Hot 100:  MICHAEL JACKSON.

--He did it with his 1987 album "Bad".  The five #1 singles were:  "I Just Can't Stop Loving You""Bad""The Way You Make Me Feel""Man in the Mirror", and "Dirty Diana".

--It also had "Smooth Criminal", but that topped out at #7.

--Well, now another artist has tied that mark.  And it's KATY PERRY.

--Katy's single "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" just went #1, and it was the fifth chart-topper off her latest album, "Teenage Dream".

--The other four are:  "California Gurls""Teenage Dream""Firework" and "E.T.".

--For what it's worth, Michael's five singles happened over nine months and two weeks, while Katy's run took one year, two months and a week.

--Yesterday, Katy Tweeted, quote, "What a way to wake up!  SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song 'LAST FRIDAY NIGHT' is officially #1 & made HISTORY! . . . [and] u know, I couldn't have done it without ya."

Jennifer Hudson is Prouder of Her Weight Loss Than She Is of Her Oscar



JENNIFER HUDSON has lost a TON of weight since her days on "American Idol" . . . and obviously, she's proud of that.

--But check this out:  She tells "Self" magazine, quote, "I'm prouder of my weight loss than my Oscar."  Jennifer won Best Supporting Actress for "Dreamgirls" in 2007.

--Before she was famous, Jennifer was a size 16 . . . and she thought she was, quote, "the perfect size."  But obviously, that changed.

--She says, quote, "I didn't even know I was considered plus-sized until I came to Hollywood . . . An interviewer asked, 'How does it feel to be plus-sized in Hollywood?'

--"I looked around, like, Who is she talking to?  Oh, me?  I'm plus-sized?  In the neighborhood I'm from in Chicago, a 16 is normal. But in Hollywood, everyone looks exactly the same, so I stood out."

--Jennifer decided to lose weight while she was pregnant with her son, who's 2 now.  She says, quote, "I thought, hold on . . . why doesn't anybody know I'm pregnant?  And I wanted to set a good example for my son."
