Why Entertainment Weekly rocks

Check out # 6

MUSIC
1. FUNHOUSE, Pink
Breaking up is no call to break down, as divorcée Pink gets some musical therapy on her powerful disc. Not that she has all the answers: ''Please Don't Leave Me'' eventually gives way to ''It's All Your Fault.''

TV
2. KRISTEN WIIG on 'Saturday Night Live'
SNL stars come in two flavors: hams who do characters, and utility players who do everything else. Wiig is both.

MOVIES
3. THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON trailerBrad Pitt ages backward, while time rolls on for Cate Blanchett, as this bittersweet preview introduces two lovers forced to ''meet in the middle.''

DVD
4. REACH OUT Four Tops DVD
Honor the recently departed Levi Stubbs with this disc featuring 22 of the Tops' best performances. The bonus? Previously unreleased a cappella mixes that will thrill purists.

WEB
5. POLADROID.NET
If you miss the days of shakin' it like a Polaroid picture, this site lets you do it virtually, turning digital pics into classic-looking snaps.

BOOKS
6. BEAUTIFUL SHEEP, by Kathryn Dun
Who needs an artful tome (with photos by Paul Farnham) touting the woolly belles of the barnyard? Ewe do.

STAGE AND MOVIES
7. KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS in 'The Seagull' and 'I've Loved You So Long'
Can't get to NYC for Scott Thomas' Broadway debut? Check out her starkly honest film role as an ex-con rediscovering her convictions.

TV
8. KEVIN MCKIDD on 'Grey's Anatomy'
We loved him in Journeyman (axed) and Rome (ditto). Now McKidd has job security on Grey's as ex-Army doc McStudly, who's rocking Cristina's world...and ours.

WEB
9. MTVMUSIC.COM
See? They do play videos. Groove old-school on Biz Markie and Dire Straits, then Rickroll yourself with ''Never Gonna Give You Up.''


I can't quit reading the Twilight series, though book 4 sorta jumps the shark for me.

Also Jacob, not Edward.

I can vouch for Pink's new CD. It's very different from her other stuff and yet, completely P!nk.
