ANSWERS to the PREACH IT! year-end celebrity gossip quiz: 

50cent 1. D -- T.I. was incarcerated in 2009.

2. D -- 50 Cent, a.k.a. Curtis Jackson, right, reported no extortion attempts. (No one threatens Fiddy.)

3. B -- "Box Time Playhouse." (The show starred an animated box named Boxter, who lived in Boxville.)

4. B -- Jessica Simpson did not date John Mayer in 2009. (She dated Mayer before 2009.)

5. B -- In "New Moon," the character Jane dug the word "pain."

6. A -- Seriously, man! (If you got this wrong, we recommend you look up "Bale Out -- RevoLucian's Christian Bale Remix!" on YouTube. Gentle souls beware, however -- in it, the expletives are celebrated, rather than deleted.)

7. D -- Mel Gibson's eighth child was born on Oct. 30, 2009.

8. B -- Susan Sarandon did not sign the "free Roman Polanski" petition.

9. A -- The Jackson family was 90 minutes late to Michael Jackson's private funeral.

10. C -- zero, zip, zilch, nada.

G'head, brag about your score in comments on the original quiz post -- and remember, you're on the honor system. All scores of "11" will be rejected as information from a suspect unnamed source.
