On tonight's Extra, Rebecca Black talked to Mario Lopez about the death threats that have been made against her because of her annoyingly popular song, "Friday." Black said she just was surprised that some people were taking it so seriously: "Yeah, um, I think that's kind of weird. Like, why would you, it's a song! Like, it's not like I ran for President and then I said something really bad."

• Madonna fell off a horse while riding at photographer Steven Klein's house in Bridgehampton on Saturday. She wasn't seriously injured, but don't think for a minute she's taking any blame for the spill. Her flack blamed the accident on a rogue paparazzo who jumped out of the bushes and startled the horse, although both the photographer in question and the police don't share that account. [NYDN, NYP, E!]

Hollywood PrivacyWatch: Holiday Travel Edition! 11/26 — Day before Thanksgiving, the hellmouth of the Southwest terminal at LAX — Starbucks and the CPK that gave me food poisoning that one time and some vendor that touts itself as "Organic." Picture this — MARIO LOPEZ. Alone, toting an overstuffed plastic bag and nondescript rolling luggage. He is... shiny, like his own wax sculpture came to life. Shock of all shocks, he's shorter in person and not nearly as buffed out as People Magazine would have you believe. But Mario travels in comfort, not style. Running suit. Velour. Midnight blue. Wow.
