ROBERT PATTINSON made his first post-scandal appearance on "The Daily Show" last night, and it was a little awkward, but definitely entertaining. And Rob actually did really well considering the circumstances. JON STEWART started the interview off by breaking out the Ben and Jerry's ice cream. And he said, quote, "We're just a couple-a gals talking." They did reference the KRISTEN STEWART thing for the first few minutes, without actually saying her name. Pattinson admitted he didn't really know what to say because, quote, "I'm cheap, I didn't hire a publicist."
The closest anyone came to making a direct comment about the scandal was when Stewart, in a "sassy chick" kind of voice, said, quote, "Boy, you are better off! Kick her to the curb!" Rob was actually booed OUTSIDE the studio, because he didn't get out of his car to meet with his waiting fans. But he did sign autographs later that night at the Museum of Modern Art. And he told fans, quote, "Thank you, guys, for being here."

In an interview with ComingSoon.net, MEL GIBSON was asked if Hollywood is a forgiving town. He said it's NOT. But at the same time, he doesn't seem to think he needs to be forgiven for anything. He says, quote, "What did I do, really? It is kind of ridiculous. So it's kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what needs to be forgiven and I don't consider that anything does because I didn't hurt anyone.

"The Voice" has announced two new TWISTS for its upcoming season.
First off, the coaches will have the ability to STEAL contestants from each other during the "battle rounds." Basically, when a coach cuts the losing singer, one of the other coaches can choose to buzz in and "claim" that contestant.
Here's how it works out: As usual, each coach starts with 16 singers, which is reduced to eight during the battle rounds. But coaches can "claim" two discarded singers from another team, which brings their total to 10.
Then comes something new called the "knockout round," where the teams will be whittled down to FIVE. The 10 singers will each perform on a stool in a boxing ring, and the top five on each team will go on to the live shows.
Season Three premieres on September 10th.

The finalists will appear in a "five-episode web series" on the show's YouTube channel, then fans will vote for the winner, and that guy will appear on the show the week of October 15th.
