Links: Howard Stern to Replace Simon Cowell?; NBC Serves Fried Chicken for Black History Month

● Howard Stern is in talks with American Idol producers to replace judge Simon Cowell, which would add “Are they real?” to the challenges facing contestants. [Page Six] ● Kristen Stewart had jury duty, landing a case in which a man solicited an undercover cop for sex, allowing TMZ to use the headline: “Kristen Stewart — Key Player in Prostitution Case.” [TMZ] ● A book deal is imminent for Hipster Puppies — available at Urban Outfitters or anywhere useless books are sold. [Tumblr]

● ?uestlove, drummer of The Roots and for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon‘s house band, snapped a photo of NBC’s cafeteria special for Black History Month: fried chicken and collard greens, naturally. [Twitpic] ● Pride/Prejudice, a ‘new’ novel with cleavage on the cover, “fills the gaps” in Jane Austen’s classic book, and makes it hip with a tweaked title — like Romeo + Juliet, but worse. [ONTD] ● Meme alert: If you thought the photobombing squirrel was something, wait until you see the Snooki Crasher, a Photoshopper’s short and orange dream. [Urlesque]
