There's so much to talk about, which is why we're switching to decaf today:

  • Not only does Sherri Shepherd have her wedding to plan, but she's getting ready to go back into television sitcoms. "The View" co-host is slated to co-star along side Christine Taylor in a new TV Land comedy in which she plays the "office drama queen." No word on the title of the show, but we do know it will be set in Rip City Cola, Oregon. Go Sherri! [BV]

  • Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj are going on a 24-city tour this spring, beginning on March 18th. Rick Ross, Travis Barker and DJ Mixmaster Mike will all be on hand to make it a stellar concert. Oh, and Lil Wayne also says he'll never perform in NYC again because of his prior arrest in the Big Apple. [NY Post] [Urban Daily]

  • Trey Songz has a Cassie-inspired frohawk. The "Say Aah" singer tweeted a picture of his new 'do in preparation for his upcoming "Love Faces" tour. Do we love it or hate? [Urban Daily]

  • President Obama has his game plan for tonight's State of the Union address. According to a White House source, he will talk about strengthening the US' ability to compete in the world. "The President will lay out a plan to win the future by out-innovating, out-educating and out-building the rest of the world," says the source. [Bossip]

  • Though Halle Berry has turned down the Aretha Franklin biopic, Franklin still wants Berry to sign on. "I never expected Halle Berry to sing, she's an actress, not a singer. Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist's original recording," said Franklin. "Everything is subject to negotiation and she shouldn't underestimate her own talent. There are a number of other leading ladies out there that can definitely handle the role." [BV]

  • Rihanna is gearing up for the release of her "S&M" video. She released some photos of the shoot and girl, she looks fabulous! She's wearing a pink latex mini with larger-than-life hair. In some scenes she's even wearing a heart eyepatch. "Had a fantastic weekend shooting my best/favorite video EVER" she tweeted. Check out the photos. [Too Fab]

  • Thankfully, FOX has pulled the plug on a controversial "Jesus Hates Obama" commercial for the Super Bowl. "Do I really believe that Jesus hates Obama? Absolutely not," says Belfry, a comedian who sells the apparel. Take a look and see if the commercial goes too far. [Eur Web]
