I'm a Poll Man:
Time now for another completely useless political survey.
A new poll finds that when it comes to breakfast, Democrats like bagels (34 percent) and croissants (32 percent) while Republicans prefer to eat donuts (35 percent).
Editor's note: And Libertarians say that breakfast isn't in the Constitution.
--I like bagels, croissants and donuts, but I don't usually eat breakfast. So what am I?
--Actually, libertarians just eat donuts but talk online about how they would totally eat a bagel, really. (Maiman)
Idle gossip & unconfirmed rumors:
ELTON JOHN's annual Oscar viewing party at West Hollywood Park on Sunday raised $6 million dollars for his AIDS Foundation.
There was live music along with bidding items, like a five-day holiday at STEVEN TYLER's place in Hawaii that brought in a cool $250-thousand dollars. Plus, Elton himself gave away four private performances for a bid of a quarter-million dollars apiece.
Guests at the evening included a bunch of Hollywood bigwigs like JEFFREY KATZENBERG, DAVE GROHL, HEIDI KLUM, ANNA PAQUIN and STEPHEN MOYER, JENNA ELFMAN and NIA VARDALOS.
MICHAEL JACKSON raised a lot of eyebrows by wearing a surgical mask in public, but has JUSTIN BIEBER topped his signature disguise? RadarOnline.com spotted the heart throb doing some shopping in London dressed in all black, complete with a gas mask!
The 18-year-old super star may have found a new lady friend --the UK's Mirror reports he's been spending quality time with British singer ELLA-PAIGE CLARKE. (Lee)
Editor's note: Gas mask? An excellent way to avoid detection. It also prevents him from singing. Everybody wins. (Maiman)

BOBBY BROWN is going down... to jail... again. TMZ says he got 55 days in jail for his most recent DUI arrest. This was back in October when cops pulled him over for bobbing and weaving on the road. The officers smelled booze in the car and slapped the cuffs on Bobby. He was also driving with a suspended license. Bobby pleaded no contest yesterday and got the jail time, plus four years probation and an 18-month alcohol program. This is his third DUI conviction. Until he has to report to jail on March 20th, Bobby has to show up for three A.A. meetings a week. (Marino)
