Like Rosie O'Donnell and John Mayer, singer Ryan Adams is a celebrity who really likes to blog. Lately, posts on his Tumblog have hinted that he's converting — and not converting like Madonna, who's just about Kabbalah, but converting like Mare Winningham, who genuinely became a Jew. From today's post:

"Less mystic" is kind of a nice and thoughtful way of describing it, no? Also, because I know you were wondering, he thinks Bryan Adams is "not a serious artist."
