GET A ROOM: This kind of story goes back to the days of Doris Day and Rock Hudson. Wait. Scratch that. Per PerezHilton, "We guess they're ready for everyone to believe their chemistry in their new Amazing Spider-man movie, ha! Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were ALL over each other during their lil romantic stroll along the streets of Chelsea." http://bit.ly/ySjNbF

HEY, IT WAS FINE: Come on, people. Would you prefer lip-syncing Whitney Houston? Per the Los Angeles Times, about Steven Tyler singing the national anthem at yesterday’s Ravens-Patriots AFC title game, “By several accounts (he) shredded it to pieces. (Other fans maintain Tyler was just doing his stylized interpretation of the song). Besides his usual screeching, Tyler gave approximations of the lyrics, singing "as bomb bursting in air" instead of the preferred "the bombs bursting in air." http://lat.ms/xDQVwi

TEMPER, TEMPER: Yeah, that’s all it was, per TMZ, “Heidi Klum is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper ... TMZ has learned. Sources directly connected with the couple tell us ... Heidi's decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity.” http://bit.ly/wsyhCx

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT THE NFL: And here’s evidence, per Deadline Hollywood, “ABC did well counter-programming originals against the big NFC Championship game on Fox, which dominated the night.” http://bit.ly/Al6l6Z

CRITICS BE DAMNED: You dig what you dig, per PerezHilton, “Amid highly negative reviews, Breaking Dawn is set to be the highest selling Twilight movie so far. Twi-hards have pumped 701.3 million bucks into the global economy with figs from China and Japan still to come.” http://bit.ly/AhaFlE

DID HE REALLY SAY THAT?: No, he didn’t, per Newser, “Sam Greenspan's 11 Points blog runs down some of most commonly misquoted lines in movie history, including:

Wrong: If you build it, they will come (Field of Dreams)

Right: If you build it, he will come

Wrong: Luke, I am your father (Empire Strikes Back)

Right: Darth Vader: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father. Luke: He told me enough. He told me you killed him. Darth Vader: No. I am your father.” http://bit.ly/yF3yZA

SO DEFENSIVE: Kim Kardashian steadfastly denies marriage to Kris Humprhies was staged, per Access Hollywood, “If you really think about [it], if this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV — I’m a smart businesswoman, I would have stayed married longer. This was a bad business decision,” Kim said as she cohosted “Live! with Kelly” with Kelly Ripa on Monday.” http://bit.ly/AvhWRX

NO, LIZ LEMON: No drugs, no alcohol; just pooped, per the AP, “The publicist for comedian and "30 Rock" cast member Tracy Morgan says the actor suffered from a combination of exhaustion and altitude when he collapsed at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.” http://apne.ws/ygZmyF

JIM CARREY’S DAUGHTER SLAYS: American Idol judges like what they see, per E!, “Last night on American Idol's auditions show, the country was introduced to Jane Carrey—a 24-year-old mother, waitress, musician, Los Angeleno…and, oh yeah, Jim Carrey's daughter.” http://eonli.ne/yHGa5t

PRETTY COOL: Check it out, per indieWIRE, “As a teaser before the 84th Academy Award nominations announcement (Tuesday, January 24), the Academy has launched a digital exhibition with images from 84 iconic films. Beginning with “Bride of Frankenstein” from 1935 and culminating with “Avatar” (2009), this collection offers a taste of what wowed the Academy in years past.” http://bit.ly/z3wmO3

AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. http://bit.ly/iwWPXT
