Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) has been making some interesting moves lately. Today the company announced that they have launched a celebrity news and information website called OMG. The URL is[1].

There are three tabs of featured content: Hot Topics, Celebs, and News. Hot Topics include BFFs, Big Sunglasses, and Brangelina. The website looks like the cover of a People Magazine.

Yahoo! Gay Avatars

I have promised myself that the next Yahoo! idea that comes out won’t shock me
