This is a pretty wild for the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, but you never know. There's talk that Ashton Kutcher is the father of January Jones' newborn baby. January plays Betty Draper on "Mad Men". She gave birth to her son Xander Dane Jones in September and never revealed the father's identity. She didn't even put his name on the kid's birth certificate. She and Ashton dated from 1998 to 2001. It started with a "blind item" on a website appropriately called BlindGossip.com. They said, "This married actor had a one-night stand with one of his exes, who is an actress in an acclaimed television show. She wound up pregnant. The actor's wife found out about the baby, and, to no one's surprise, went completely ballistic. Both the actor and his wife tried every tactic (money, lawyers, threats to ruin her career) to convince the ex to terminate the pregnancy." Do you think it's possible?
Â Jennifer Lopez broke down on stage while talking about love on Saturday night. She was performing at Mohegan Sun's 15th anniversary celebration in Connecticut, and after singing an acoustic version of her song "If You Had My Love", she became emotional discussing her past. She said, "I'm going to sing you the last song I wrote about love. A lot has changed since then." Jennifer then performed "Until It Beats No More", while dancers re-enacted scenes with lookalikes from her past - including exes Puff Diddly Pooh, Cris Judd and Ben Affleck and a recreation of the dance she performed with Marc Anthony on "American Idol" which happened just weeks before they announced their split. Afterwards, Jennifer said, "I took a trip down memory lane." But then when a picture of her three-year-old twins Max and Emme flashed up on screen, Jennifer happily added, "There's love - and then there's love."
In today's Hot Couple Alert, it's on-screen superhero couple Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris from "Green Lantern" are hooking up in real life. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were spotted leaving Ryan's Boston apartment yesterday morning. A source says, "They're seeing each other casually. Now they're both single and trying it out." They also celebrated Ryan's 35th birthday in Manhattan Thursday night with Sandra Bullock.
Lea Michele threw a fit on the set of "Glee". Supposedly, she didn't want to take part in a scene featuring a food fight because it involved meatballs, and she's vegan. An insider says, "Everyone was supposed to throw spaghetti with meatballs, salad, and other assorted foods at each other. Lea pitched a fit, wanting no part of it. The thought of being hit by meatballs grossed her out, so she was adamant that absolutely none be thrown her way!" So, the producers asked the cast to only throw salad at Lea.
Happy Halloween!! Check out this awesome light show set to LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem"Â
Giuliana Rancic is recovering at home after undergoing a double lumpectomy for breast cancer. Her surgery was performed Tuesday. She had cancerous lumps removed from both breasts, along with several lymph nodes. Her husband Bill Rancic was on the "Today" show with Ann Curry sharing the success from the surgery.
Â Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have only been married about two months and "Life & Style" magazine already has them breaking up. A source says they're basically leading separate lives, "Kim's mapping out 2012, including holidays, and Kris isn't a part of it. Any itineraries for the future don't include Kris very much. That's not a good sign." Meanwhile, the "Star" tabloid claims Kim has already visited a divorce lawyer. A source says, "Kris doesn't show up for Kim. He's breaking her heart." And Kris was photographed yesterday moving boxes out of the New York City hotel he and Kim have been staying in. He wasn't wearing his wedding ring.
How perfect would this be: Pee Wee Herman says he hopes to compete on the next season of "Dancing With the Stars". Maybe you have seen him in the audience a lot this season, it's because he's friends with David Arquette and Courteney Cox so he's been there to support David. He says, "I hope to be dancing myself next season! That's why I'm there all the time, to get my face up there. Trying to butter up the producers and everything. Jury's out, I haven't heard yet."
This seems low even for a supermarket tabloid, but I'll run with it. Today's Hot Couple Alert belongs to the children. Angelina Jolie and Gwen Stefani recently hooked their kids up for some play dates and now "In Touch Weekly" claims that Angie's daughter Shiloh has a crush on Gwen's son Kingston. "They love playing the same games, watching the same movies and even dressing up in the same silly costumes. It's a very special bond." The kids travel a lot with their parents, but they've found a way to keep in touch even when they're in different cities:Â They Skype. Just like the big kids do. In case you were wondering, these kids are FIVE years old! Ha!
Lindsay Lohan was handcuffed and led out of court yesterday, after Judge Stephanie Sautner finally got hardcore with her and revoked her probation. She was immediately released on $100,000 bail, and she's due back in court November 2nd. At that point, they'll officially determine if she'd violated her probation and what new punishments she'll face, if any. Obviously, jail time is a possibility. But if that happens, it could just be another situation where they check her in, then check her right back out because of prison overcrowding. Ahead of yesterday's hearing, the probation department gave Lindsay a glowing review which Judge Sautner basically said was B.S. She was mostly concerned with Lindsay being booted from that women's shelter for missing nine scheduled appointments. And she refused to accept Lindsay being reassigned to the Red Cross. She said, "No one has the power to change my sentence. Not the volunteer center and not probation. She is not getting credit for any time at the American Red Cross." Here's something that really got under the judge's skin: The probation report stated that Lindsay didn't like working at the women's shelter because it wasn't "fulfilling" for her. Judge Sautner said, "Is that what a sentence is about? Is it supposed to fulfill the defendant, or is it supposed to be rehabilitative and / or punitive?" Then she dropped one other bomb on Lindsay: Until her November 2nd hearing, Lindsay must work a minimum of two days a week at the L.A. County Morgue for a minimum of eight hours a day. Lindsay will do janitorial work at the morgue, like emptying trash, vacuuming and cleaning toilets. She might see corpses, but a police spokesman says, "She will not be touching, handling or processing any dead people." Oh and here's one last jab from Judge Sautner to Lindsay's attorney, "She is supposed to be an actress from what I hear. I don't know how much acting work she's done or is doing."
The honor of Hot Couple Alert today belongs to Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt were spotted making out in New York City last month. A source says, "They were kissing. They were very lovey. They first met about a film they wanted to do together, but it's gone beyond that now."
Â Â NBC has yet to officially announce the next cast of "Celebrity Apprentice", but apparently that's not necessary, because the cast was "outed" after they were spotted in New York City, doing some sort of sandwich-making task. So, here's the cast:
Adam Carolla, Clay Aiken, magician Penn Jillette, comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, Aubrey O'Day, the dad from "American Chopper" Paul Teutul, Sr, racecar driver Marco Andretti, model Patricia VelÃ¡squez, and former Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza. Wait, there's more.

I'll never watch.

Soulja Boy was arrested for marijuana possession early Tuesday morning during a routine traffic stop in Temple, Georgia. Soulja Boy was with four other men at the time, three bodyguards and a driver. According to reports, the vehicle was pulled over because a light was out, and the cops searched it after smelling a "strong odor" of marijuana. That's when they discovered a "substantial amount" of pot, guns, cash, and a puppy. The puppy was not charged as an accomplice and was released to a family member. There's no word on the puppy's name or breed. All five men were hit with three felony charges: Possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Some of the weed and one of the guns was supposedly found in a suitcase, which belonged to Soulja Boy. TMZ claims there was "roughly $70,000 worth of cash and drugs in the car" but the authorities have disputed that, although they wouldn't reveal the exact amount.
A deal to sell the Philadelphia 76ers to a group that includes Will Smith has been completed. He and wife Jada Pinkett Smith has invested as minority shareholders. They join the Sixers in a capacity similar to Jay-Zâs role with the New Jersey Nets. They aren't the only rapper/owners, Nelly has part ownership in the Charlotte Bobcats and Usher is in with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 76ers were valued this year by Forbes at $330 million, 17th in the NBA.
Believe it or not, President Obama's daughters, 10-year-old Sasha and 13-year-old Malia watch "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" on Sunday nights. But Michelle says she only lets them on the condition that they learn the right lessons from it. "I'm more concerned with how they take it in, what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay." We should probably note that the president himself isn't a fan.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was kicked out of an Apple Store in a Las Vegas mall over the weekend. He attempted to bypass a line to purchase an iPhone 4S. When customers complained, management investigated and he was asked to leave.
"Dancing With the Stars" pro dancer Karina Smirnoff confirmed last night that she and Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny postponed their wedding because of work commitments. She said, "It's just this season is going so well for me and J.R. (Martinez, her celebrity dance partner) and I want to be able to concentrate 100% here. And at the same time, concentrate on planning the wedding. So together, it's just impossible. And Brad's been gone for two months playing in Detroit, he's just coming back tonight. So it's all good. We're just going to do it a little later." You can watch that interview HERE.
Last night on "Dancing With the Stars" it was down to Hope Solo and Maksin Chmerkovskiy or Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya. Finally, they sent home someone who hadn't been a contender for the finals. Carson and his colorful costumes went home, ironically the week before Broadway week! Too bad!
E! News host Giuliana Rancic announced yesterday that she has early stage breast cancer and she's only 36. She made the announcement on the "Today" show, saying the cancer was caught back in August while she was preparing to try to get pregnant through in vitro fertilization. Her doctor insisted she get a mammogram as a precaution because pregnancy hormones could accelerate cancer if she had it. She said, "I wasn't prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong. I will be okay, because I found it early. I'm doing surgery this coming week, and then I go to radiation for six and a half weeks." Giuliana, who's married to the very first "Apprentice" winner Bill Rancic, also said she still plans to have a baby and even though it hasn't even been conceived yet, she says that baby has already saved her life.
Â Â Selena Gomez got a restraining order against a 46-year-old man who threatened to kill her. Apparently, this guy was picked up for a mental evaluation last month on an unrelated matter, and that's when he told a shrink he'd had conversations with God about killing Selena. This guy is weird. I don't think this is the guy with the restraining order, but bizarre nonetheless.
Â Justin Bieber debuted his new song, "Mistletoe". It's the first single off his Christmas album, "Under the Mistletoe", which hits stores on November 1st. Justin said, "Even though it's a Christmas album, it's probably my best album yet. I got a lot of different genres on there, so I think it works for everybody." Here is the song:
It has one genre that you're probably familiar with. At the very least, it should "work" for fans of Jason Mraz since "Mistletoe" sounds a lot like his hit "I'm Yours", which was one of the most popular songs ofÂ 2008. Lawsuit? Or was their promotion
A Coldplay/Rihanna collaboration has hit the Internet. It's a song called "Princess of China" and it'll be on Coldplay's new album "Mylo Xyloto", which hits stores next week.
Coldplay - Princess Of China (feat. Rihanna) by DJ ERM
Jennifer Lopez and Bradley Cooper are hooking up in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! They spent some time together in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Jennifer and Bradley also had dinner together last month in New York City, but that was supposedly a business meeting, but it may have grown into something more. A source says they're, "casually dating". And another source says, "After their date in New York, Bradley and Jennifer stayed in touch. She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh. She likes him." However, J-Lo might have some competition. The "National Enquirer" claims Kirstie Alley is desperate to land Bradley and she's trying to get friends to set them up. So, if you were Bradley, who would you choose? Ha!
Lady Gaga and Usher were two of the performers for an event honoring Bill Clinton. It was called "The William J. Clinton Decade of Difference Concert." Bill was there along with Hillary and their daughter Chelsea. In honor of the Clintons, Lady Gaga tweaked some of her songs. She turned "Bad Romance" into "Bill Romance" and "You and I" into "The Clintons, You and I". And she was performing in a bizarre skin-colored wrap of some sort. Gaga also used this opportunity to drop an F-Bomb saying, "If someone had told me so many years ago that I'd be doing that right in front of you I just wouldn't have believed them. I would have given them a good American [eff] you."
And Usher used this opportunity to expose himself. Sort of. Usher's pants ripped open during his performance, but you couldn't see anything other than some leg.
"Twilight" actress Nikki Reed and "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald got married yesterday in Malibu. Nikki plays Rosalie Hale in the "Twilight" movies. She was actually a fan of Paul's from watching "Idol" and met him when the contestants attended the premiere of the movie "Little Red Riding Hood" earlier this year. In June, just two months later, they were engaged. He's 27 and she's 23. Congrats!
ABC has canceled the "Charlie's Angels" reboot after just four episodes. There are four remaining episodes and it sounds like ABC will air them in the show's regular timeslot until they decide on a replacement. Since I'm the only one watching, it's Thursdays at 8:00pm.
Rick Ross suffered two "health scares" on two different planes causing two emergency landings within just six hours on Friday. There isn't anything official on what's wrong with him. Rick was attempting to fly from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Memphis for a performance. His first try was on Delta, but not long after the plane took off, Rick suffered a medical emergency, and the plane returned to the airport to make an emergency landing. We heard Rick "lost consciousness" and that emergency workers called it a "seizure," but that hasn't been confirmed. Rick was taken to the hospital, where he started feeling better. Wale Tweeted, "I just talked to Ross, he's 100% OK @TMZ #DontPanic #DontPanic." But Rick was not 100% OK. A few hours later, Rick boarded a private jet to Memphis, but once again, he suffered some sort of medical emergency, and the plane was diverted to Birmingham, Alabama, where he was once again rushed to the hospital. It sounds like it was another seizure, but again, we don't know that for sure. Rick canceled his Friday show in Memphis as well Saturday's gig in Greensboro, North Carolina. He's scheduled to perform this coming Friday in Atlanta, and in L.A. on Sunday. It's unclear if he'll be able to make those shows.
Tone Loc collapsed while performing at a private party in Atlanta on Saturday night. According to reports from people who were there, it looked like he had a seizure, but there's no confirmation on that. All we know for sure is that Tone Loc was rushed to the hospital, where he was hooked up to an I.V. His manager says he was suffering from exhaustion and that he's fine now. Tone Loc is 45 and has a history of passing out. In May of 2009, he collapsed at an outdoor concert in Florida. He reportedly suffered a seizure caused by the heat. He was taken to the hospital that time, too.
Bad news for Lindsay Lohan today. She may have been fired from her community service! She was supposed to work off the bulk of her community service at the Downtown Women's Shelter in L.A., but I guess she hasn't been showing up. On the record, all we know is what Lindsay's rep said yesterday, "Lindsay is now serving her community service at the Red Cross, and we're not providing any comment beyond that." Unofficially, what we've heard is that the shelter got fed up with her because she no-showed nine different times she was scheduled to be there. And when she did show, she would hang for about an hour, then split. And sources say she's barely made a dent in her community service commitment. Lindsay was ordered to serve 360 hours at the shelter and another 120 at the county morgue. She has a status hearing next Wednesday, and things might not go too well. On the other hand, she was given a year to complete her hours, so this probably isn't something that'll send her back to jail.
If there's one thing "Twilight" fans are psyched for, it's Bella's birth scene in "Breaking Dawn - Part 1". We've already heard a little bit about it, and now, here's more from director Bill Condon, "I think within the confines of a PG-13 rating, I think we've got something that's pretty powerful. And in terms of the birth, it was, 'Let's do it from Bella's point of view. Let's see whatever she can see.' Once you decide on an approach like that, it's amazing how powerful you can be without being overly explicit. She gets glimpses of a lot of things, and hears everything, but it's not the cutaway to teeth clawing through flesh. But you certainly know what's happening." The movie hits theaters November 18th.
Since Halloween is right around the corner, Taylor Swift was asked in a recent interview if she's picked out a costume. She said, "I really want to be a "Toddlers & Tiaras" girl, but I might blow it off." Taylor has a pretty good reason for not being as enthused about Halloween as you and I. She says, "The idea of dressing up is awesome, but it also feels like work because I change clothes nine times in my show."
Congratulations to Ne-Yo and his lady friend Monyetta Shaw, she delivered their second child on Monday. They have not yet released the name or even the sex of the child as of this morning. Big sister Madilyn Grace is 11 months old.
Yesterday, Game proposed to his baby mama Tiffney, who he's been dating for the past seven years. But if this was the real moment, his choice of venue was interesting. He popped the question in front of the paparazzi inside the back door of the elementary school where Tiffney teaches. She was holding one kid, and being surrounded by two more. She said yes, of course. Game and Tiffney have two kids togetherr, a son named King Justice and a daughter named Cali. Game also has another son from a previous relationship.
Â Â Chris Brown and Bow Wow were at a strip club in Miami last week called King of Diamonds and they spared no expense. One source says they, "lined the floor with singles" bought "untold bottles of booze" for their entourage, and after they were through, "at least three dancers walked away with $5,000 in tips, each."

and the big surprise at the end...was meeting Nicki Minaj!
The FBI has arrested a Jacksonville, Florida man they believe was behind the massive celebrity hacking scandal that led to the posting of those Scarlett Johansson nude pics. 35-year-old Christopher Chaney has been charged with 26 counts of computer hacking, aggravated identity theft and wiretapping. He faces up to 121 years in federal prison. Chaney was released on $10,000 bond and banned from using any computer device that can access the Internet. He was also ordered to live with "third-party custodians". In this case, his parents. Authorities say Chaney hacked the stars' Google, Apple and Yahoo e-mail accounts, and set them up so that every e-mail sent or received would automatically forward to him. In doing so, he was able to gain access to financial information, movie scripts, private e-mails, photos and contact lists that led him to other potential targets. There were more than 50 victims in all, including Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Busy Philipps, Ali Larter and Mila Kunis. The Feds didn't say how they caught Chaney, but they believe he was working alone. They also said he seemed to be doing this, "just for kicks." There's no evidence he profited from it. They called their investigation "Operation Hackerazzi".
The next cast of "Celebrity Apprentice" has yet to be confirmed, but the list of rumored participants is growing. A source tells "People" that the cast will include '80s pop superstar Debbie Gibson, Teresa Giudice from "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and former "American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken. However, "Entertainment Weekly" says Victoria Gotti is doing it. She's the 48-year-old daughter of mafia boss John Gotti, who died in 2002. Another source claimed model Cheryl Tiegs and racecar driver Marco Andretti were onboard. Marco is the 24-year-old grandson of racing legend Mario Andretti. Aubrey O'day and Adam Carolla have also been rumored. "Celebrity Apprentice" will premiere in January.
The Michael Jackson tribute concert went down Saturday in Wales. MJ's kids, Prince, Paris and Blanket, made a surprise appearance onstage to speak briefly and introduce Beyonce, who performed via satellite. Paris, sporting a replica of the red jacket Michael wore in the "Thriller" video, said, "We're very happy to be here on this special night to honor our father." Ne-Yo opened the show with "Billie Jean". He urged everyone to forget about the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, saying, "It's not about the controversy. It's not about the trial. It's not about his death. It's about celebrating his life. It's about celebrating his music." Other performers included Cee-Lo Green, Leona Lewis, Smokey Robinson, Alien Ant Farm and Christina Aguilera. Host Jamie Foxx performed two songs. He did "Rock With You" on his own, then was joined by the Jackson family for the finale, "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough". Meanwhile, two of the biggest names advertised didn't even show up.Â Chris Brown reportedly wasn't allowed entry into the U.K. because of his criminal record in the States. And Jennifer Hudson informed her Twitter followers on Saturday, the day of the show, that she wasn't going to be there, either. She said, "To my UK fans that were coming to the MJ show in Wales. I will no longer be attending due to major production issues." She added, "I would have thought they would have informed you all by now, so since they did not, I am. Thank u for your support." We don't know if this is true or not, but we've heard that her main "issue" was that she wasn't given enough time to work with the songs she was asked to perform. But sources say she got her music at the same time as all the other performers. Producers were said to be very upset about this. One of Jennifer's songs, "Gone Too Soon", was handled by Gladys Knight. The Black Eyed Peas had bowed out earlier in the week, due to some undisclosed issues with the promoters.
Kristin Davis from "Sex and the City" has adopted a baby girl. She named her Gemma Rose Davis. Kristin says, "This is something I have wanted for a very long time. Having this wish come true is even more gratifying than I ever had imagined. I feel so blessed." Kristin is 46 and is not married and this is her only child.
Demi Moore allegedly consulted a divorce attorney on Friday, and it's over between her and Ashton Kutcher. A source says, "Miss Moore has been totally humiliated." Another source claims they've been separated for six weeks already. But Friday night, Ashton and Demi were spotted at Kabbalah services in Los Angeles. A witness says they, "walked out with their arms wrapped around each other's waists."
Rihanna was out in London over the weekend with a British boxer and model named Dudley O'Shaughnessy and some people are saying he's her new boyfriend. Rihanna supposedly "hand-picked" O'Shaughnessy to co-star in her latest video, "We Found Love". A source says, "Rihanna was making no secret that she fancied the pants off Dudley. During the shoot, she took every opportunity to get close to him and at one point she was sitting in his lap during a break from filming."
It looks like Ryan Gosling helped break up a fight in New York City recently. There's a video on YouTube in which a couple guys are going at it, when a man who looks a lot like Ryan appears out of nowhere in a striped tank top and baseball hat to help separate them. Two girls are filming the fight, and one of them recognizes Ryan right away. She says, "That's the guy from the movie "The Notebook"! There's no word from Ryan's people, so we don't know for sure that it's him. But it does look like him.
There's one problem with having your wedding celebration at somebody's house: Neighbors. And even though Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' wedding was held at the Montecito, California estate of a Google executive, the neighbors were still too close and the festivities were too loud for their sensitive ears. All in all, 22 calls were made to the cops for everything from loud music, too much noise, to the helicopters flying above. Fire marshals showed up around midnight after receiving a noise complaint, so the music had to be shut down early. A source says that Khloe tried to do something about it, but failed, "She was talking to security guards her friend's family knows the mayor of Montecito and they tried even to get in touch with him. Interestingly, none of the neighbors would sign a formal complaint, because they didn't want to be identified.
Lil Wayne will release his new abum âTha Carter IVâ immediately after Sundayâs Video Music Awards on MTV. The CD hits retail stores on Monday. The album features 15 tracks and includes collaborations with other artists. A deluxe edition adds three tracks.
Hilary Duff is no longer starring in "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" because of her recently-announced pregnancy. The parting was reportedly amicable, but producers couldn't wait to start production. There's no word yet who'll replace her. They issued a statement saying, "Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule. Therefore we are forced to explore other options." She is reportedly unavailable until June and they needed to start filming this fall.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's family is growing - the couple is expecting their third child. They have two daughters, 5-year-old Violet and 2-year-old Seraphina. No other details were released. Jen and Ben, both 39, were married in 2005.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries got married Saturday night in front of 440 guests. It was a black-and-white affair only. All the guests were asked to only wear those two colors. Not surprisingly, the event was loaded with celebrities. They included Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, Mario Lopez, Ciara, Babyface, Venus and Serena Williams, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lindsay Lohan, along with her mom Dina and her sister Ali, Avril Lavigne, Scottie Pippen and his wife, Carmelo Anthony, Sugar Ray Leonard, Alan Thicke, Cheryl Burke, and George Lopez. Also in attendance were Kim's wedding dress designer Vera Wang, Maria Menounos, Greta Van Susteren, Jillian Barberie, and "Girls Gone Wild" scumbag Joe Francis. Then there was Mark Ballas, who choreographed Kim and Kris' first dance, which was to Robin Thicke's"Angels" and Robin was there to perform it in person. Kim' stepfather Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle. Kim also had a message for her late father, former O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian. She said, "I so wish my dad could be here today to walk me down the aisle. But I know in a way he is here, and I feel his loving presence all around me. I love and miss you, dad." Kourtney and Khloe were Kim's co-maids of honor, half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner were bridesmaids, and Kourtney's 21-month-old son Mason was the ringbearer. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck did the catering. E! will put the wedding into a two-part special called "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event". It'll air on October 9th and 10th. The wedding reportedly cost $20 million, although some sources say it was $30 million.
Lindsay Lohan is suing Pitbull for name-checking her on "Give Me Everything". On the track, Pitbull raps, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin' / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan." Obviously, that's a reference to Lindsay's seemingly endless legal problems, particularly the two weeks she spent in jail last summer on a probation violation. Lindsay is attacking this on multiple fronts, all of which seem a little silly. For starters, the lawsuit claims, "the lyrics are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff." Then, in describing Lindsay as, "a professional actor of good repute and standing". The suit says the track violates her civil rights, which, "protect people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes." And Lindsay's lawyer adds, "The problem is they used her name without compensation in the song, and confused the public about whether or not she was a collaborator." Really? Come on now, no one heard that lyric and thought she was a collaborator. Ne-Yo and Afrojack, who co-wrote "Give Me Everything", are also named as defendants. There's no response from either of them, or Pitbull. There's talk that Lindsay may have only filed the lawsuit to try to squeeze a settlement out of Pitbull, like the one she allegedly got from E-Trade last year. Lindsay filed a lawsuit against E-Trade over one of their talking baby ads because there was a character named Lindsay who was described as a, "milkaholic". It reportedly ended with Lindsay receiving "a confidential sum."
Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez are currently filming a movie based on the popular pregnancy book "What to Expect When You're Expecting". And according to the "Star" tabloid, they're not hitting it off. A source says, "They don't like each other. They don't interact much, but when they do, the tension is thick." Cameron supposedly hates Jennifer because she has a huge entourage around her at all times, including her mother, her manager, three assistants and her own makeup and hair people. She also thinks all the chaos surrounding J-Lo's split with Marc Anthony as well as the fact that there are rumors she's hooking up with another one of their co-stars, Rodrigo Santoro, is causing a distraction. And the source says she insulted Jennifer's acting behind her back telling someone else on the set, "She'd be better off sticking to her day jobs." How does Jennifer retaliate? By ignoring Cameron. The source says, "She doesn't seem to care. She doesn't talk about Cam or ask about her. She just acts as if Cam doesn't exist."
Sarah Jessica Parker has confirmed that there will be a third "Sex and the City" movie. Sarah said, "There is another movie in development. I know what the story is. It's a small story, but I think it should be told. The question is, 'What's the right time to tell it'?"
After a show, Lil Wayne hosted a get together at a club in Montreal called La Mouche. But someone put an end to it by somehow unleashing pepper spray "into the ventilation system." Everyone had to be evacuated, including Wayne, but luckily no one was hurt. It's unclear who did it, or if the police are even looking into it. You know, if you really don't like Weezy that much and you want to pepper spray him so badly, then why not go right up to his face, and pepper spray him like a man, you coward. Don't hurt others. Just kidding. Don't do it at all. Not cool.
Everyone has pretty much decided that it was Jennifer Lopez who left Marc Anthony and that he's going out of his mind trying to get her back. A source says, "He calls her nonstop, especially when he's drinking. Marc is constantly harassing her and doesn't think she'll go through with the divorce." It wasn't long ago that Jennifer and Marc reunited to spend some family time with their kids. So maybe things are nowhere near as bad as the tabloids claim. Plus, last we heard, J-Lo and Marc are still planning to work together on that Latinn American singing competition show they announced back when they were still together. However, their reunion to launch their his-and-hers clothing collection has been cancelled.
Kim Kardashian reportedly had to cut 50 guests from her wedding because there wasn't enough room for them. We'd heard that 1,000 invites went out initially. Among those getting the boot were family members of Bruce Jenner's sister Lisa. Dude! That's family! What the hell? Anyway, the wedding goes down tomorrow at the home of venture capitalist Frank Caufield. It's got a panoramic view of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Justin Bieber, DemiLovato and Venus and Serena Williams are among the celebrities expected to be there. But again, no family. Kim's "Dancing With the Stars" partner Mark Ballas choreographed what will be the first dance between Kim and Kris Humphries as husband and wife.
Kat Von D had a pretty intense day yesterday. First, she lost her reality show. TLC announced that they canceled her show "L.A. Ink", which is currently in its fourth season. The series finale will air on September 15th. The network didn't give a reason for dropping it. But Kat says she was the one who pulled the plug. She went to Twitter, "I love how me deciding to not continue doing 'L.A. Ink', turns into being 'cancelled.' Thanks TLC. Regardless of everything I remain grateful." But just hours later, she announced that she and Jesse James have made up, and their engagement is back on. Literally as Kat was Tweeting her side of the "L.A. Ink" story, she posted a picture of her and Jesse hugging.
Abercrombie & Fitch is offering The Situation "a substantial payment" toÂ stop wearing their clothes on "Jersey Shore". Here's how Abercrombie worded their offer: "We are deeply concerned that The Situation's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We have therefore offered a substantial payment to The Situation and the producers of the show to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently awaiting a response." Abercrombie didn't elaborate on the amount, so it's unclear what the "substantial payment" would be. That is, assuming Abercrombie is serious enough to let it get that far. If the offer is legit, The Situation has an opportunity to double down. He could be paid not to wear Abercrombie while being paid to wear Hustler brand clothing. Hustler's Larry Flynt said, "The Sitch may not be good enough for Abercrombie & Fitch, but he's good enough for us." He says they will, "pay The Situation to wear their clothing, so that he can stay well dressed."
Will Smith is looking to revive his rap career. His last album "Lost and Found" came out in 2005. He's working with a producer to make his comeback. He had gone on to gain recognition in Hollywood by being nominated for two Oscars and a few Golden Globe awards. I'm all for it! Good luck, Will!
Anybody remember Gerard Depardieu, the French actor who was famous in America for, like, 12 seconds in the 1990s? Not important, he may not belong in E on the Z, but his story does! Depardieu was on a delayed flight from Paris to Dublin, and he needed to use the can. But the flight attendants told him he couldn't leave his seat. He told them, "I have to pee." But they said he'd have to wait 15 minutes. So he stood up, whipped out his baguette and relieved himself on the floor, in front of everyone. A passenger says, "We could see he had been drinking. The stewardess was dumbfounded." The plane then returned to the gate and everyone had to get off while it was cleaned, which delayed the flight another two hours. Depardieu wasn't allowed back on the plane, obviously, but we don't know what, if anything, he'll be charged with.
Up through last month, only one artist had ever managed to have five #1 singles from one album in the 53-year history of Billboard's Hot 100. That was Michael Jackson. He did it with his 1987 album "Bad". The five #1 singles were: "I Just Can't Stop Loving You", "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror", and "Dirty Diana". It also had "Smooth Criminal", but that topped out at #7. Well, now another artist has tied that mark. Congratulations to Katy Perry. Her single "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" just went #1, and it was the fifth chart-topper off her latest album, "Teenage Dream". The other four are: "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream","Firework" and "E.T.". For what it's worth, Michael's five singles happened over nine months and two weeks, while Katy's run took one year, two months and a week. Yesterday, Katy Tweeted, "What a way to wake up!Â so proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song 'Last Friday Night' is officially #1 & made history! and u know, I couldn't have done it without ya."
Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband ofÂ Taylor ArmstrongÂ from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills", was found dead on Monday of an apparent suicide. He was 47. Police say Russell hung himself at a friend's house, but an official cause of death won't be released until after an autopsy and toxicology tests. Russell and Taylor were having marital problems, and the next season of "Real Housewives" was supposed to feature them going through marriage counseling. It's unclear if Bravo plans on re-editing or cutting those scenes in light of his death. Regardless, it doesn't look like the counseling was successful, because Taylor filed for divorce on July 15th citing verbal and physical abuse. No suicide note was found, although sources close to Russell are saying he may have been upset about all kinds things including the divorce, financial problems and even an alleged "tell-all book" that his exes were contributing to. Taylor hasn't commented on Russell's death, but her rep says, "She's devastated. She's hysterical, and can barely speak." Some people are saying Taylor was there to witness the discovery of the body along with the owner of the house he was found in. Supposedly, Russell had missed a meeting with Taylor that day, and she got worried when she couldn't contact him. For now, the second season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" is scheduled to premiere on September 5th. But Bravo may push it back.
Â Â Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton have rekindled their friendship, but according to the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Lindsay may want more than just a platonic relationship. A source says Lindsay has a huge crush on Paris, "Lindsay chased after her several years ago and now that they're friends again, she's more attracted to her than ever. Lindsay gets really giggly and bashful around Paris, and she's constantly flirting with her. Paris is a natural flirt as well, and the rekindled relationship has raised eyebrows throughout Hollywood. It's unlikely Paris would be interested in anything more than a friendship, but she loves being the object of affection and attention."

Jay-Z partied at a Miami nightclub on Sunday night in celebration of his new album with Kanye West, âWatch The Throne,â and dropped $250,000 on champagne. "Jay knew that Mark Cuban spent over $100,000 after the Mavs won the championship a few months ago, and he wasn't about to be upstaged," a source close to Jay-Z said. "He bought bottle after bottle of Ace of Spades and then went all out with the 15-liter bottle that cost $100,000 on its own!" He also tipped a generous $50,000 to the wait staff at the end of the night. Jay-Z and Kanye's new album has already garnered criticism for lyrics bragging about their wealth.
Â Â Taylor Swift had a slight wardrobe malfunctionÂ during her show in St. Louis on Saturday, when her dress wafted up to reveal what was underneath. Fortunately for her, what was underneath appeared to be an industrial strength pair of granny panties. It happens at the :35 mark. Poor girl!
This seems like more trouble than it's worth, but "Rolling Stone" recently sorted through all kinds of data to determine "The King of Hip-Hop." When everything was compiled, they gave the crown to Eminem. Lil Wayne came in second. The process is too complicated to explain, but it did take into account mini-rankings, for things like album sales, Billboard chart success, YouTube views, tours, social networking, album reviews and awards.,Here's the overall Top 20: Do you agree?
2.) Lil Wayne
4.) Kanye West
6.) Nicki Minaj
7.) Rick Ross
9.) Gucci Mane
11.) Snoop Dogg
12.) Puff Diddly Pooh
15.) Wiz Khalifa
17.) Waka Flocka Flame

But when âBreaking Dawn: Part Oneâ is finally released on November 18th, shoppers will be able to get their hands on an exact copy of the dress. Alfred Angelo will be exclusively selling the official replica in his Signature stores in the U.S and independent retailers worldwide from November. Pricing has not yet been revealed but typical dresses range anywhere from $450-$4500. In the meantime, stills of the wedding scene have been released showing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson getting but details of the dress have been kept firmly under wraps. Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has said in the past that the dress should be an old-fashioned Art Nouveau-style design. She said, âElegant white satin, cut on the bias, with long sleeves.â
"Entertainment Weekly" has sexy pictures of "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on its cover this week. Inside the magazine, Pattinson discusses the big love scene in "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" which hits theaters in November. Specifically, he talks about destroying the bed. He says, "I wanted to have it as a line so much: 'I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.' And then he'd start crying. By the way, that's what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! I ruined this bed!" Rob also offers the following assessment of the character he's been playing for the last several years, "Look, there are a lot of moments when Edward sort of acts like a p***y. I mean, throughout the whole series." Meanwhile, Kristen has this to say about their fake wedding, "It's a trip to watch the wedding scenes especially. It was so volatile and emotional. I was being such a crazy person."
Organizers of âMichael Forever â The Tribute Concertâ announced that Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Leona Lewis and the band Alien Ant Farm, famous for its cover of MichaelÂ Jacksonâs song "Smooth Criminal," will join previously-announced members of the Jackson family for the scheduled October 8th show at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
While the event is being put together by his mom Katherine and some of his siblings, hisÂ brothers Randy and Jermaine have protested its timing. The concert is scheduled during the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged in Jacksonâs death.
Remember "Cherry Pie" and "Heaven"?? They are just two of the great songs from hair band Warrent. Unfortunately, last night, former lead singer Jani Lane was found dead in a room at the Comfort Inn Hotel in Woodland Hills, California. Not too sure what he was doing at the Comfort Inn, but so far, there's no word yet on the cause of death. However, Lane's problems with drugs and alcohol were pretty well documented especially on VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club". Jani split with the rest of the band in 2004. They reunited in 2008, but couldn't make it work, so he left again before the end of the year.

TBS has canceled George Lopez's late night show "Lopez Tonight", which premiered in November of 2009. The move is effective immediately: The last episode will air tonight. George's scheduled guests are Raven-Symone and comedian Auggie Smith. Naturally, this comes down to ratings. "Lopez Tonight" lost 40% of its audience when it moved from 11:00pm to midnight to make room for "Conan". At the time the switch was made, George was cool it. He said, "I'm in the George Lopez business. I believe that Conan O'Brien coming to TBS is good for my business." It wasn't. "Lopez Tonight" has been averaging 546,000 viewers per episode this year. George has yet to comment. By the way, "Conan" isn't exactly performing up to TBS' expectations either. Monday's episode attracted 715,000 viewers, which is a fairly typical day of late. For comparison, "Lopez Tonight" averaged 911,000 viewers in its first season. "Conan" has averaged 1 million viewers since coming to TBS in November of last year.
Three police officers in Belmar, NJ are being investigated, by their Chief. Sunday night, the Situation from "Jersey Shore" stopped to ask directions. Two girls were in the Ferrari passenger seat with no seat belt. That'sÂ a violation of NJ law. The officers got autographs, them let them go. No ticket.
Kiowa Gordon who plays a young werewolf named Embry Call in the "Twilight" movies was arrested on two outstanding warrants earlier this week in Mesa, Arizona. He's the one who calls Bella "vampire girl" in "New Moon". Kiowa was a passenger in his own car when it was pulled over for a routine registration check at about 7:00am on Monday. When cops ran the registration, the warrants came up. One was for skipping a court hearing last February, after he had pleaded guilty to possession and use of drug paraphernalia, giving alcohol to a minor and underage drinking. Gordon is 21 now. The second warrant involved a DUI arrest from last year.
In the Hot Couple Alert, it got desperate today.Â Ashley Herbert may not have wanted sexy wine maker Ben Flajnik on "The Bachelorette", but there is one girl in Hollywood who canât resist him. The day after Ashley dumped Ben during the season finale on August 1st, actress Jennifer Love HewittÂ expressed interest inÂ wanting to go on a date with Ben. She Tweeted,Â Â âOmg! Ben f accept my final rose!!! Gotta book a flight to Sonoma!âÂ Â Ben quickly showed interest in Jennifer too. âAaaaaaahhhhhhh Ben f is following me!!!!!,â she shared later on in the day.Â Well, Jen did in fact fly out to San Francisco! The two met up four days later. On August 6, people spotted Jen and Ben hanging out at Lionâs Pub in San Francisco. One eyewitness saw them making out at the bar, âBen and Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared to be dating,â another onlooker noted. âAll in all, Ben seemed to be perfectly content as the second-place loser.â Jennifer went back to Twitter the next day, âMorning lovelys! I got lost in the most amazing Sat! Just when you think u canât be surprisedâ¦. You are and itâs awesome!â Could Jen have been referring to her big date with Ben F.?
Â Â Charlie Sheen is still taking the high road over Ashton Kutcher's upcoming debut on the season premiere of "Two and a Half Men". The show airs September 19th, the same night as Charlie's roast on Comedy Central. And he'll definitely be tuning in, "Who's not going to watch? I'll be there front and center. I'm just as curious as everybody else. I'm actually rooting hard for them. It should be exciting. It'll be nice to know that they get some carry-over ratings from people being sort of curious about what happened to their guy." Then he gave props to his successor, saying, "I think Ashton's gonna kill it." Watch him be nice-ish for a change HERE.

We told you yesterday about the remake in the works for "Dirty Dancing" - good idea or not. Now they have listed a few casting hints. Top candidates for the role of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle are Derek Hough from "Dancing With the Stars," Chase Crawford from "Gossip Girl," Dominic Cooper from "Mamma Mia," and Matthew Morrison from "Glee." Females up for the role of Jennifer Grey's Baby are Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Lea Michele from "Glee". Nicodemus pointed out how awkward it would be if Mr. Shu and Rachel Berry ended up making out!
Big Boi from Outkast was arrested in Miami yesterday for drug possession. He was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. All of those are felonies. Big Boi was getting off of a cruise ship, and was busted by customs agents and border patrol dogs. He had numerous drugs on him, including ecstasy and Viagra. The police also discovered "MDMA powder," which is the main ingredient in ecstasy. Big Boi was held on $16,000 bond, but was later released
Earlier this year, "X Factor" announced that the winner will receive the largest guaranteed prize in TV history. Simon Cowell says the grand prize is now $5 million in cash plus the record deal. And in addition to that, the winning singer or group will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Pepsi. Simon seems convinced that "X Factor" will trump "American Idol". He says, "You don't enter something for the silver medal, you want to be Number One. And for the next few months we're going to throw everything we have at it."
They're not just killing Charlie Sheen's character on "Two and a Half Men" off, they're pulverizing him. At least that's the rumor. On Charlie's last episode, his character Charlie Harper was leaving for Paris with Rose, the nosy, annoying neighbor. Well, on the season premiere, Rose is going to explain Charlie's death at his funeral. Sources say that Charlie and Rose make it to Paris, but during the trip, she catches him in the shower with another woman. Then the next day, Rose and Charlie are waiting for the subway in Paris when Charlie "slips" into the path of an upcoming train, which "obliterates him in a meat explosion." I guess there is a "strong inclination was that Rose pushed him and got away with it." Most of Charlie Harper's ex-girlfriends will be back for the funeral including Jenny McCarthy, who played Courtney, a woman who broke up with Charlie when she got tired of having sex with him. And John Stamos will also be there. He'll play an old friend who once had a three-way with Charlie and another girl and he'll give a raunchy speech at the funeral. This is sort of an inside joke, since John was one of several guys who were rumored to be taking Charlie's place on the show.
Â Â "Desperate Housewives" will be coming to an end next season. The show's creator Marc Cherry explained, "I wanted to go out in the classiest way possible. The only thing harder than creating a hit show is knowing when to end it, especially when you have such an amazing cast." "Desperate Housewives" begins its eighth and final season on September 25th.

When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony broke up, Marc almost immediately got the "Jennifer" tattoo on his wrist covered up.Â Maybe that wasÂ a sign that he's the one who's not over the relationship and is feeling all the pain. Well, "Us Weekly" is backing up that assumption in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. They say Marc is begging J-Lo to take him back. A source says, "His mood shifts from blaming her to begging her to take him back to telling her she is destroying his life. He's also making their divorce talks a nightmare, He's being difficult on every little point. He wants to prolong things so she reconsiders." That's not likely to happen, though. Another source says Jennifer is, "very happy and surrounded by love."
Â Â Game is a pretty tough guy, or at least he'd like us to think so, and he showcases that toughness by dissing other rappers. But there's one guy he doesn't want any part of, "One thing that stuck with me is that Eminem is not to be effed with ever in hip-hop. Ever. If you notice out of everybody I take a shot at, that's the only person that's untouched. He's in a bubble and you don't even say nothing to Eminem. To anybody that ever does, God bless you. He'll end your career."
Â Â Michael Vick and reality star Emily B from the VH1 show âLove And Hip Hopâ are getting a little too close for comfort. I say that because Michael is engaged and Emily B is Fabolousâ baby mama. Emily grew up in Virgina and before becoming the reality star that we know, she dated Vick. And its gets worse, over the years Emily maintained a "friendship" with Mike. She actively hangs out with his brother, and speaks frequently to his mom. But everyone in the family though once she got with Fab, she'd stop hanging around the Vick family so much. Well now, according to one insider, Emily and Mike are now closer than ever, even though he's engaged!
If Donald Trump doesn't run for president, at least we have this: Roseanne BarrÂ has officially entered the race. She announced it on "The Tonight Show" last night and added, "I'm totally serious. Cause I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the tax payer. In fact, Iâm choosing the tax payers as my vice president." When Jay Leno asked Roseanne if she would debate Sarah Palin, she said, "That's kinda what got me to thinking that I too should run for president, if she can." As for party affiliation, Roseanne said, "I'm not for either party because they both suck and they're both a bunch of criminals. So I made up my own party. It's the Green Tea Party."
I'm going to go ahead and say it's on between Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! Kelly was shooting a segment for E!'s "Fashion Police", when a photo of Christina in a tight black dress came up. After Joan Rivers commented that Christina looked like "Snooki's Scandinavian cousin", Kelly went off. She said, "Maybe she's just becoming the fat bi*** she was always born to be. I don't know. She was a c*** to me. And she bought my house!" Kelly then explained why she was being so ruthless, "She called me fat for so many effing years, so you know what? Eff you, you're fat too!" We await a reply from Christina. Here's a video from years ago when their little beef actually began! I'd forgotten all about this stuff!
Eternal bachelor George Clooney recently split with girlfriend of two years Elisabetta Canalis, but it hasn't taken long for him to move on to something new. George has been getting cozy with former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Stacy Keibler. Stacy recently flew to Italy to spend time with George at his villa in Lake Como. "I'm in heaven," Stacy tweeted about her trip. George and Stacy have been acquaintances for some time and were set up by a mutual friend. But Stacy (who split with her longtime boyfriend, "7th Heaven" star Geoff Stults, a year ago) isn't looking for a commitment, which suits George just fine. "He's enjoying spending time with Stacy, but he just got out of a two-year relationship," says the insider. "George isn't ready for anything serious. This fling is purely for fun."
Â Â Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee has turned down "Dancing with the Stars". He Tweeted, "OK! Ready for the funniest [crap] EVER!!! Dancing with the Stars just offered me a spot on the show! I've never hit the PASS button so quick."
Chris Hansen has helped nail so many pedophiles on "To Catch a Predator" that it's almost sad to see this happening to him. Almost. It turns out that Chris wasn't just cheating on his wife with a Florida TV reporter. He was also cheating on his wife and the Florida TV reporter with a Las Vegas stripper. Her name is Kathleen Collins, and in addition to being a dancer of the erotic variety, she's also an aspiring country singer. Apparently, he told her he was divorcing his wife, and she was his one and only. A source says, "Kathleen feels like she's been used and betrayed. Chris definitely broke her heart."
At a TV press event yesterday, CBS provided some details on Ashton Kutcher's "Two and a Half Men" character. His name will be Walden Schmidt and he'll be an, "Internet billionaire with a broken heart. He's unique." It's unclear if he'll be related to the other one-and-a half men like Charlie Sheen's character was. A CBS executive said, There is great value in hiring an actor like Ashton. He's extra professional, a funny, talented gifted actor who comes with a tremendous amount of commitment and enthusiasm. We're moving forward to create an exciting new character and deliver a great show." She added, "We're worlds apart" from where things were six months ago. She wouldn't confirm or deny the funeral rumor from yesterday. The season premiere airs September 19th.
In the new issue of "Vanity Fair",Jennifer Lopez talks about how difficult it was to leave Marc Anthony. She says, "This was the hardest decision I've ever had to face. I really wanted this family to work. That was my biggest dream, and I worked hard at it. We both did. Sometimes it doesn't work and that's sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love. It's still my biggest dream." As for why it didn't work, J-Lo didn't share any details we might actually want to hear. But she did cough out some vague, philosophical dog mess. She said, "Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself, if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now." Jennifer also spouted the obligatory "I still love my ex" business saying, "I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic, and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children." But check this out: Marc used to have the word "Jennifer" tattooed on his wrist and he's already gone and gotten it covered up with new ink.
Not long ago, there were tabloid reports that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were being told to be extra-careful if they're having sex because it wouldn't help either of their careers if Selena got pregnant. Well, the NuVo condom company decided to help them stay childless by sending Justin a year's supply of protection. Actually, they sent him 365 of them, which means it's only a year's supply if Justin and Selena's average is once a day.

That sounds nice. Sign me up. Whaaa???
Jay-Z and Kanye West have already started to argue about their "Watch The Throne" tour. Jay wants to reign in expenses whileÂ Kanye doesn't care and wants to do a blow-out show.
Rihanna was in her native Barbados yesterday to celebrate something called Kadooment Day. It's a harvest festival, and it culminates with a huge parade. From the pictures, it seems that the purpose of this parade is to get the women half-naked, drunk and slutty. If you're into Rihanna, you will enjoy them - click HERE to check them out!
An alleged nude picture of Ryan Kwanten who plays Jason Stackhouse on "True Blood" hit the web yesterday. It shows Ryan with his pants down, pulling his shirt up with his face in clear sight, showing off some pretty impressive equipment. For obvious reasons, I can't post that one. Sorry ladies!
Â Â Lil Wayne and Tom Cruise are working on a project together, but itâs nothing youâd guess. Tom's son Connor Cruise was just signed to Young Money. An in insider at the label says that Connor is a DJ and will be doing a few tracks for the group and possibly going on tour with YMCMB artists.
And finally, in the worst kept secret department, Fantasia is pregnant. She made the announcement Sunday night at a charity concert in Jacksonville, Florida. She told the audience, "You are the first people that I share this news with. And I share this with you because I can relate to you. Now I tell you, I don't live my life for folk. God has given me this child. And I don't have to hide it from none of y'all." The last we knew, though, she was still with Antwaun Cook, the guy who was married when she started messing around with him. That whole situation drove Fantasia to attempt suicide last August. And despite a few ups and downs in the relationship since then, Antwaun seems to be the likely candidate. Fantasia already has a daughter named Zion, who turns 10 next week.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, a British tabloid says Amy Winehouse was trying to adopt a 10-year-old Caribbean girl when she died. The girl's name is Dannika, and she lives on the island of St. Lucia, which Amy had visited many times. Dannika was living with a single mom who couldn't support her, and Amy was prepared to take her back to England with her. Both of Dannika's parents were on board with the idea, and Amy was reportedly going to St. Lucia this month to start the paperwork. How did Amy first meet Dannika? Shockingly, it was through her grandmother, who ran a beachfront bar.

Drake - Headlines by sdbloKelly Rowland has admitted that she has a secret booty caller. She said that while there is no-one special in her life, she does have a âfriend with benefitsâ. Kelly said, âIâm actually single, but you know you have your little things on the side. Thereâs nobody Iâm dating, but I have a special friend.â But although she confessed to being naughty, she insisted that their relationship is purely physical. Kelly admits she has zero time for anything serious right now, but did give a clue as to what kind of man could motivate her to one day change her mind. âHeâs got to have great confidence,â Kelly said about the man sheâd consider settling down for. âHeâs got to be assured in himself as a man and have great goals. Ambition looks so sexy on anybody. Plus, I think itâs really important for him to have a great sense of humor. Thatâs just so sexy to me.â

Our own Cady Eimer from Poquoson is asking Justin Bieber to her Senior Prom next year! We are working on getting Cady in touch with Justin's people - check out her website - she's really trying to make this happen! And I should add that Cady started this "ask a celebrity to..." trend. It wasn't the Marines that asked Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. Cady posted this stuff months ago and has been working her butt off on it for a long time! Good luck Cady!
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are separating the home now, it's time for Marc to move out. He's just moved into a bachelor pad -- two doors down from her. Awkward. However, I guess it makes sense since they have the twins Max and Emme together. He wants to be near the kids.
Last week, an anonymous source said Rob Kardashian was "in talks" to do "Dancing with the Stars". Now multiple sources are saying it's a done deal. None of this is official yet, but remember how "Dancing with the Stars" was supposedly after "more high profile" celebrities for next season? Yeah. Good job so far.
According to the invitation I received in the mail yesterday, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will get married on August 20th in Montecito, California. They are requesting black and white black-tie attire. You can see the invitation by clicking HERE.
Three big artists are ready to get on stage at the MTV "Video Music Awards" on Sunday, August 28th. So far, Adele, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown have been added as performers. More will be added as we get closer.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, we think we know which young Hollywood stars will be playing the roles of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte for the âSex & The Cityâ prequel movie. Casting directors are trying to see which stars would be ideal to star in a movie adaption to the Sex & The City prequel novels.Â But who should play who? The recent speculation goes a little something like this, according to sources: âIt is rumored that current preferences for the roles are Blake Lively as Samantha Jones, Selena Gomez as Charlotte York, Emma Roberts as Miranda Hobbes and Elizabeth Olsen as Carrie Bradshaw.â What do you think about Emma Stone as Miranda or even Anna Faris as Samantha? Who would be some better choices?
In the other Big Fat Rumor of the Day, recent pictures are trying to "prove" that Jennifer Garner is pregnant again and she's been denying them. But some pictures popped up yesterday that make it look like she might be, if you assume those clothes don't normally fit her that way. Jennifer and Ben Affleck have two daughters, 5-year-old Violet and 2-year-old Seraphina.
Â Nicki Minaj performed at something called the Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica last weekend and apparently she was a little TOO R-rated for the locals. Nicki's "controversial" performance included "foul language," "explicit lyrics" and "sexual dance moves." Jamaica has laws that prohibit performers from doing stuff like that so she was penalized. A local lawyer pleaded guilty to the charges on Nicki's behalf, and she was subsequently fined 1,000 Jamaican dollars. That translates to $11 in U.S. currency. Yeah. $11. Nicki hasn't commented on the exorbitant fine, but she seemed to enjoy her performance. After the show, she Tweeted, "OMG!!! I swear I just had the TIME of my LIFE @ReggaeSumFest in JAMAICA!!!!!"
50 Cent has announced that he will not be releasing his new album Black Magic after all. His fifth album was due out in November, but he just Tweeted, "Man I'm not releasing an album. I can't believe Interscope is this f***ed up right now. I apologize to all my fans." Clearly, there have been some issues with his record label. We'll see.
Former "Jersey Shore" star Angelina Pivarnick told a new TV talk show that she suffered a miscarriage. The baby was due in April. A day after she announced her pregnancy, her fiance David Kovaks broke up with her. He claimed she cheated on him. She blames the media for her miscarriage.
It only took a couple of failed marriages and about a decade, but Jennifer Lopez and Puff Diddly Pooh are dating again in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! According to an extremely reliable source, Puff and JLo pretty much ended all communication when they broke up nearly ten years ago. But, the insider claims that Jennifer reached out to Diddy late last year when she realized her marriage to Marc Anthony was not working. This friend of Diddyâs said, "Diddy was not expecting Jennifer to call him. They hadn't spoken in years, and all of a sudden, she's calling and texting." But it wasn't just calling and texting, our insider claim that on at least on two occasions, Puffy and JLo physically met up! Anyway, they kept in contact for months and last week, we're told that the two went out on a date! Last Wednesday night, Jennifer flew into New York City and went on a date with Diddy at New York's top restaurant Phillipe Chow. According to one person who was there and saw it, "Diddy came in quickly and immediately went to the private area about 20 minutes later J Lo went in. I was in shock."

An autopsy performed yesterday on the body of Amy Winehouse was inconclusive meaning we still don't know what killed her. And we probably won't know until the results of the toxicology tests come in which could take several weeks. Amy will be laid to rest at a private funeral today. Some tabloids have suggested that Amy was out buying drugs and going off the rails the night before her death. But sources tell Britain's "Sun" tabloid that she was actually in pretty good shape, at least during the early part of the evening. Because of her history of drinking and drug use, Amy was kind of frail, so she was going in regularly for checkups. And she'd just had one Friday night. The doctor was reportedly happy with her condition and saw no cause for concern. Meanwhile, a police source told "People" magazine that there was no sign of drug use or paraphernalia in Amy's house. But the source adds that Amy was in bad shape overall, "She had been admitted to hospital by ambulance on a regular basis suffering seizures. Her nervous system was shot to pieces.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has changed his relationship status on Facebook to single. He also posted a message to his fans warning them not to dis his ex, Kristin Cavallari. He said, "Thank you all for the support, but if you talk bad about Kristin I will delete and block you. It's unnecessary and heartless. Also, don't say now I can play football, I could play football when I had her compared to when I don't. Football is the least of my worries, so have some respect." Meanwhile, a source says Jay ruined the relationship, "He was beyond controlling and didn't really like Kristin going out. When she did go out, he called all the time and demanded to know exactly where she was going and who she was with. He made her choose between him and being friends with a lot of her girlfriends."
Amy Winehouse finally turned her signature song "Rehab" into the most ironic statement in pop music history, when she was found dead in her London home on Saturday. She was 27 years old. There's no word yet on the cause of death, but everyone is assuming it was an overdose of some kind. Police won't confirm that, but they said there are no signs of foul play. One of Amy's reps said she was found in her bed by one of her security people, who was trying to wake her from a nap. The British tabloids say Amy was out partying and buying drugs the night before her death. Those drugs allegedly included cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and ketamine, which is used as a horse tranquilizer. In May, Amy went to rehab for what was believed to be the fourth time. On Friday, a message appeared on her website saying she was cancelingÂ all upcoming performances so she could, quote, "return to her best." Amy's parents Mitch and Janis, issued a statement saying, "Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time." Meanwhile, Janis said that Amy's death was, "only a matter of time." Janis had seen Amy just the day before, and Amy's last words to her were, "I love you, Mum." Janis said, "They are the words I will always treasure. I'm glad I saw her when I did." In a 2008 interview, Janis said, "I realize my daughter could be dead within the year. We're watching her kill herself, slowly. I've already come to terms with her dead. I've steeled myself to ask her what ground she wants to be buried in, which cemetery." For some reason, 27 is a dangerous age for rock stars. A lot of seriously talented musicians have died during that year of their lives, most of them due either directly or indirectly to substance abuse. Sure, it's mostly just a coincidence. But it's happened enough times that we actually have a snappy name for the victims: The 27 Club. Other people in this club include legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnson, 1938; Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones, 1969; Jimi Hendrix, 1970; Janis Joplin, 1970; Jim Morrison, 1971; Grateful Dead keyboardist Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, 1973; Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff, 1994; Kurt Cobain, 1994; and now, Amy Winehouse, 2011.
Flo Rida is in the middle of a big âwhoâs the baby dadyâ war in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Flo claims he has scientific proof he's not the daddy. He is accused of fathering a son with a woman named Gloria Halloway. The kid was born earlier this year. Flo's attorney says he took a paternity test last month that ruled him out as the boy's father. But there was one problem. He used a fake name to protect his identity. Now Gloria isnât buying it! She claims she has yet to see the document with Floâs real name on hit and her team is saying thereâs no reason to believe that he was even sampled. Her lawyer said, "I really do feel that the only way we are going to get a reliable paternity test is going to be within the confines of some sort of court order."
Remember when Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler benched himself during the second half of the NFC Championship game because his knee hurt and the Bears lost the game to the Green Bay Packers? People called him a quitter. Even fellow athletes were questioning his toughness in public forums like Twitter. Well, this isn't going to help his reputation: Cutler has bailed on his marriage to Kristin Cavallari and a source close to the couple says it's because he got cold feet. Kristin is said to be stunned especially since she just bought her wedding dress two weeks ago. Around that time she told "People" magazine, "I am so happy and currently planning my wedding." It's not clear if the relationship itself is over, but Kristin has already been spotted without her ring. Kristin and Jay have been together 10 months. Kristin had an engagement party last Saturday.
Bob Dylan has a 15-year-old grandson named Pablo Dylan, who's an aspiring rapper, And it sounds like Bob's career really influenced his decision to become a musician. "Of course we do two different things and I don't want people to see me for what he has done. But, what I have done, I mean from a musical and personal standpoint, is definitely influenced by him. Everyone around me influences me, and I have learned so much from him just listening to his records, but I hope his music continues to live on through what I continue to do the rest of my life." Pablo adds, "My grandfather, I consider him the Jay-Z of his time, and he definitely has a legacy that a lot of people look up to He feetrongly about my music, and I love him to death." Pablo just released his first mixtape. It's called "10 Minutes". By the way, Pablo is the son of Bob's oldest son Jesse Dylan, not Jakob Dylan, the singer from The Wallflowers. You can listen to "Top of the World"Â HERE - just be WARNED: there is a few naughty words in there!
Two Hot Couple Alerts again today! Scarlett Johansson has been spending time withÂ Justin Bartha. He was Doug from the "Hangover" movies. She attended the opening of "All New People", starring Justin, last Saturday. The two were inseparable at a dinner afterward. Johansson recently ended five-month fling with Sean Penn and had divorced my boyfriend Ryan Reynolds last December.
Â Â Demi Lovato is being linked to yet another guy in the other Hot Couple Alert. Earlier this week, we heard that Demi was hooking up with Ryan Phillippe. Now we're hearing that something might be going on between Demi and Darren Criss - he plays Kurt's boyfriend on "Glee". During Tuesday's HTC Status Social Launch Event, the two were seen being "so flirty" and a witness saw "lots of giggling and laughing" until they exchanged phone numbers. Check out the Twit pic of them, though? Cute, huh??
Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split up, we're hearing more and more about how inevitable it was. The latest is that sources have said they almost split up two times before, in just the past few years. The first time was in 2009, when Marc allegedly hooked up with a stewardess on a private plane. After Jennifer found out she wanted to divorce him but a source says, "Marc begged her to stay. They went to marriage counseling and decided to give it another shot." The second almost-divorce was around last Christmas. Jennifer makes more money than Marc and was upset when she found out he'd racked up $3.4 million in debts. She apparently told her friends, "I'm not bailing him out."
Vanilla Ice has some friendly advice for Justin Bieber: Enjoy it while you can, because fame may not last. Ice says, "I did "Ice Ice Baby" when I was 16, so I can kind of relate a bit. I sold over a hundred million records. And I had a weekend that lasted about three years, and I didn't know who I was. So my prediction about Bieber is that he's going to go through one of those weekends that lasts a few years because he's had such success as a child act. Then something else new will come along, and he'll be forgotten, and he can try to put all the pieces back together, so it's going to be entertaining to watch."
Every time Lindsay Lohan goes to court, you know a judge is going to yell at her. Anyway, Lindsay was in court yesterday morning to give a progress report on her probation and the judge, Stephanie Sautner, got mad at her for three reasons First of all, Lindsay hasn't started taking classes in the Shoplifters Avoidance Program. Remember, the reason she's in trouble now is for stealing a necklace while she was on probation. The judge says she has until October 19th to complete the course. Secondly, Lindsay has only done 33 hours of her 480 hours of community service. She has about 10 months left to complete it, and the judge said that she won't get an extension. And my personal favorite, Lindsay said she hadn't started her mandatory psych counseling yet because she couldn't afford it. Even though she showed up in $1,200 shoes and is renting a multi-million dollar home right now. The judge told her to figure out a way to get into counseling within the next three weeks, even if she has to put it on a friend's credit card. The judge and Lindsay both agreed group counseling won't work for her because of her fame. The judge also said that if Lindsay doesn't get moving on all of those things and start taking her probation more seriously, it will get revoked and she'll go to jail.
Paris Hilton walked out on a "Good Morning America" interview with ABCNews anchor Dan Harris, after being asked if she thought she was finished. That's because the ratings for Paris' show on the Oxygen network, "The World According to Paris", have been, as Harris puts it, "dismal." The finale aired last night. After some friendly topics, Harris began tossing out some hard questions: Like, "Do you worry at times that the people who have followed in your footsteps, like Kim Kardashian, are overshadowing you?" and "There's been some talk about the ratings on the show being low, has that upset you?" She said no to both of those, however, that's when Dan went too far. He asked, "Do you ever worry about your moment having past?" Paris looked off-screen (possibly at her publicist) and let out a pouty grunt. Harris then asked, "You want to wrap-up?" At that point, Paris stood up out of her chair and walked off the "set." It was even more awkward because the interview was taking place at Paris' house, so she couldn't just walk away. Harris said he then had a "long, heated conversation" with Paris and her publicist. Paris cooled off and agreed to continue the interview. She explained, "I've been in this business for 15 years now, so it's been a very long time. Just like any other business person or someone in the industry, it's always important to reinvent yourself and come up with new projects." Then, they moved on to talking about Paris' obnoxiously pimped out doghouse and silly stuff like that. Then Paris gave Harris a hug, and he was on his way.
Jennifer Lopez has been unhappy in her marriage with Marc Anthony forever. But she didn't finally get the strength to dump him until she got a motivational email from Ben Affleck. Of course J-Lo and Ben dated back in the early 2000s and were engaged. Two months after their engagement was called off, J-Lo got together with Marc. But Jennifer's mom, Guadalupe, always loved Ben and stayed in touch with him. And when Jennifer was more miserable than ever in the marriage earlier this month, Guadalupe reached out to Ben over email. Ben replied, wished Jennifer well, and gave her some motivational words and advice. Three days later, Jennifer dumped Marc.
Rehab just got a little bit hotter! Not to make light of this guy's addiction or anything, of course, but Eric Dane, "McSteamy" on "Grey's Anatomy" has checked into rehab in Los Angeles to fight his addiction to painkillers. Apparently he got hooked on them after a sports injury. Even though the reports are just coming out now, he apparently checked himself in a few weeks ago and is coming up on the end of a 30-day treatment program. He's expected back on the set of "Grey's" next week. Around the same time as he checked in, Eric and his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, announced that they're expecting their second child. They have a daughter who's 16 months old.

PS...play the one without tags and BEWARE, there are a few N-Bombs in there!
The last few times Justin Timberlake has been asked about the future of his music career, he's downplayed it and it seemed like he didn't have any plans to tour or record a new album in the near future. But there may be a tour in the works after all in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Justin seems to have inadvertently revealed an upcoming tour in a charity auction listing. Justin has donated "two V.I.P. tickets to a future concert of your choice." It includes a "brief" meet-and-greet with Justin. By the way, Justin only has one concert booked, and it's not part of a tour. It's a Shriner's Hospital for Children charity event that will happen in Vegas on October 1st. You can use the tickets for that show, "or wait for a future date." The listing does note that "tour dates have not been announced," but it's hard to believe Justin would offer this up without having something on the way, especially considering the price of these tickets. As of this morning, the going price was at $4,250, but it's expected to grow. The "estimated value" is $10,000, and bids will be accepted for another 21 days. Neither Justin nor his people have said anything about a tour. But the auction is real, check it out!
Just like we're not going to see Mel Gibson in a movie about the heroes of the Holocaust, we really didn't expect to see this. Chris Brown has signed on to star in a romantic comedy. Just kidding, but is it too soon? The movie is an adaptation of the book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man". The book is about, "what men really think about love, relationships, intimacy, and commitment." There's no word on what role Chris is going to play.
Trey Songz has signed on for his first movie role. But it's a horror movie. So knowing the track record of horror movies and how quickly they always seem to kill off the new people, don't expect him to get that much screen time. Trey will be in a 3D remake of the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". It's set to start shooting in Louisiana next week and will come out in October of next year.
When "Cruel Intentions" came out in 1999 and made Ryan Phillippe a male sex symbol, Demi Lovato was seven years old. And now, Ryan and Demi are apparently hooking up in the Hot Couple Alert. He's 36, divorced, and has three kids. She's literally half his age, at 18. And, according to E! News, they've been seeing each other, "casually" for the past few months. Things got a little tough for them, though, when Ryan's ex-girlfriend, Alexis Knapp, gave birth to Ryan's new daughter two weeks ago. Even though Demi's only 18, she's well on her way through a Taylor Swift-style path of getting dumped by male celebrities. She's already been through Joe Jonas, Miley Cyrus' brother Trace, and of course Wilmer Valderrama. Ryan's also been pretty good about making his rounds through Hollywood. After Ryan impregnated Alexis, he went on to date Amanda Seyfried. And, of course, he was married to Reese Witherspoon and has two kids with her.
In case you missed it, over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced they were getting divorced after seven years, but they didn't give a reason. Yesterday, we gave you a few theories. Today, there are a few more. #1) Too Much Success: A gossip writer says, "Work is what ultimately gets the blame." Marc was filming "Hawthorne" for TNT, J-Lo was doing "American Idol" and a new album and they just couldn't juggle their schedules anymore. #2) Non-Stop Arguing: "Us Weekly" magazine is reporting that an anonymous source told them J-Lo and Marc would just never stop arguing. "They would get into heated, horrible fights. Jennifer tried everything she could to make it work. They went to marriage counseling. She was patient and loving and did everything he wanted her to. She exhausted all the possibilities." #3) J-Lo's Affair: In J-Lo's video for "I'm Into You", she gets all up on a model-actor named William Levy. He's a telenovela star who's nicknamed the "Cuban Brad Pitt." After they did the video, William separated from his wife, which is now leading to people speculating it's because he and J-Lo started havingÂ some hot loveÂ affair. His reps have denied it. He is hot, though, huh? Much better than Skeletor!! Ha!
You wanna know why "Playboy" is in trouble? Because they think Foxy Brown nude photos are worth millions of dollars. According to Foxy, "Playboy" has offered her $2 million to pose for the magazine and be on their cover. And she says she's still debating the offer. When it comes to nudity, believe it or not, Foxy says she's shy and reserved. "I'm cut from a different cloth. I would never even moon someone. I was raised in a good family." A spokeswoman from "Playboy" wouldn't confirm or deny whether they've really made the offer to Foxy.
Octomom denied ever giving an interview to "In Touch" magazine in which she says she hates babies and is disgusted by her children. Unfortunately for her, the audio has surfaced, and all the quotes are spot on. Octomom states, "I cringe. I do not like babies." Nadya continues, "I am absolutely disgusted by babies. They make me sick ... I don't even look at them. I have to look away." Octo also admits to locking herself in her bathroom just to get away fromÂ all the chaos around her. Way to go mommy of the year! Listen to it HERE!
Will Smith wants to go back to his roots in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Even though heâs filming âMen In Black: 3â he is considering a return to the character to Bel Air with the name that made him famous on the small screen. Heâs looking at doing a reunion movie for the âFresh Prince of Bel-Airâ. A source said, âWill has fond memories of the show and is grateful for the big break it gave him. Heâs fascinated with the idea of what the character would be doing now. He might be married with kids or he may be back in Philadelphia down on his luck. Will is interested in returning to the character and getting the old cast together either for a movie or another TV project.â
Â Â Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena were doing a police ride-along in L.A. on Wednesday night to research their roles in an upcoming cop movie called "End of Watch". And they got some action. They ended up at the scene of a gang shooting but luckily for them, they didn't get there until after it happened. A man was grazed by bullets on his lip and arm, and was sent to the hospital for treatment. Police have no suspects, and not surprisingly, the victim is refusing to cooperate. Ironically, the shooting took place at an anti-gang event organized by a group called Summer Night Lights. Their goal is to reduce gang violence by keeping public parks open late for non-criminal activity.
Just as "Glee" fans began to contemplate a life without Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel, they may not end up having to say goodbye after all. Yesterday, news came out that creator Ryan Murphy has bigger plans for the two stars. Lea Michele and Chris Colfer will star in a spinoff show that places their "Glee" characters in New York, a thread that began pulling near the end of last season. In New York for Nationals, their characters snuck onto the stage of "Wicked" and sang one of the songs. The characters decided that, following their graduation, they'd move out to the city. Murphy said that he planned on focusing on that storyline during the upcoming third season. As for Cory Monteith, he's looking at other opportunities.Â By the way, Chris Colfer says he found out he's out after the third season via Twitter. He said, "I understand that there's a time for a conclusion." He got a good parting gift though, an Emmy nomination.Â

In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, during a recent recreational basketball game at a 24 Hour Fitness center in LA, Chris Brown blew up and went on yet another anti-gay rant. Here's what a source at the basketball game had to say about it, "He got really ticked off when things didnât go his way during the game, saying, 'that's gay!' and 'youâre a fa***t ass!' to the other players. There was no physical contact, but he was verbally aggressive. His demeanor was over the top." Apparently, when one player didn't pass him the ball, he called him a "fa***t" and said it was a "gay" move. Yet another shameful step in the wrong direction. Doesn't it just really seem like he'll never learn?
Â Â "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy wasn't bluffing about letting his cast graduate off the show naturally. Yesterday, he announced that this would be the last season for three stars: Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. That's Kurt, Rachel and Finn. Regardless of how "shocking" this may be, they weren't going to play high school kids forever. Chris is 21, Lea will be 25 next month, and Cory is 29. Murphy said, "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life, I felt it was more responsible and true to the fans." More characters will also be graduating after this season. They'll be revealed on the season premiere September 20th. Murphy wouldn't reveal any more names, he just said, "More characters are leaving than are staying." By the way, Murphy also said that he's meeting Chord Overstreet (Sam) soon to discuss a return to the show. Some fans freaked out when the news broke that his option wasn't picked up, but Murphy said they always intended for him to return. He added that the writers have been writing him in to upcoming episodes.
Â Â Ryan Reynolds is in the Hot Couple Alert two times today! First of all, Ryan and ex-wife Scarlett Johansson's divorce was finalized less than two weeks ago, but Saturday night, they were spotted at a restaurant in Los Angeles called Little Dom's. A source says, "Scarlett was being very flirty with him. The way Ryan looked at her, you could tell he still has feelings. Scarlett kept pinching Ryan's cheeks and caressing his face, and Ryan would rub her back periodically. Something's definitely up." But "Us Weekly" says Ryan has also been dating Charlize Therone for several months now. A source says, "They're exclusive, and it's very hush-hush."
In the other half of the Hot Couple Alert, John Stamos and Renee Zellweger were spotted at Disneyland together on Monday. Sources say, "They were having a great time laughing and dancing as they walked from one ride to another. They looked really close and both very happy." The funny thing is, two different witnesses say they initially didn't recognize Renee. She and John were trying not to be noticed, but John was apparently less successful at it. Both people asked Renee to take a picture of them with John and only realized who she was after the fact. One of them says, "We actually didn't recognize her until they were leaving, and she handed my phone back to us!" John seems to have a thing for Disneyland. It's where he took ex-wife Rebecca Romijn on their first date and where they first had sex. They always made it a point to spend a week there every year. Awkward.
Â Â Corporal Kelsey De Santis, currently serving as the only female at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence (MACE) at United States Marine Corps Base Quantico, is calling out Justin Timberlake to go to the Marine Corps Ball in DC this November. He can't say no, right?

A man struck Nicki Minaj in the face during a fight at a Dallas hotel on Monday in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Nicki was hanging out at the pool, when she began arguing with an unidentified man. This dude was "staying with" her at the hotel, so it wasn't a random guy. Things got heated, and Nicki asked a hotel employee to call the police. That's when the fight moved to their hotel room and there, the man allegedly struck her on her lower lip. Apparently, Nicki wasn't hurt though. When the authorities arrived, Nicki explained the situation. She said that she wasn't interested in pressing charges and added that she wasn't in a relationship with the guy. By the time the cops got there, the guy had left.Â Nicki just Tweeted this morning, "The fact that u believe a man either slapped or punched me in the face & didn't leave on a stretcher w/ his b***s hanging off? The media could pee on ur leg & tell u its raining. You'd believe it." Guess that one's settled.
"CSI" has landed Ted Danson to replace Laurence Fishburne next season. Laurence replaced William Petersen two-and-a-half years ago, but decided not to come back for another season. Ted played Sam Malone on "Cheers" for 12 years. On "CSI" he will be the new supervisor, who previously ran a crime lab in Portland. By the way, Ted is pulling double duty because he'll remain on his HBO show "Bored to Death".
Colbie Caillat auditioned for "American Idol" twice -- and was rejected both times. She isn't the only "Idol" rejectee who eventually became a successful singer. Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and "Glee" star Amber Riley never made it past the preliminary rounds.
"Dancing With The Stars" returns to ABC in the fall. Already, the leaks have started. Names being mentioned frequently are Dina Lohan, Mike Tyson, Regis Philbin, and John Stamos. Producers are in the negotiation stage. Contestants are supposed to be sworn to secrecy.
I have some new information involving the death of the Notorious B.I.G. An inmate named Clayton Hill has confessed to beingÂ involved in the 1997 murder of Biggie Smalls. Hill didn't actually kill him but he admits to being an accessory after the fact. Hill used to be a member of the Nation of Islam and he says his superiors ordered the hit. He says after the murder, he was asked to go to the bus station and pick up a man named Dawoud Muhammad. When he did, Muhammad handed him the murder weapon....a semi-automatic handgun and bragged about getting $25,000 for the shooting. He explains, quote, "He stated to me that he was on the run for the murder. He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so." Of course, Hill isn't doing all of this for his health. He has an e-book coming out on July 15th called "Diary of an Ex-Terrorist" and in it he plans to tell the whole story.
Idol judge Jennifer Lopez told a British radio host of her uncertainty of remaining with the show. She said then, "I don't know. I haven't been forced to make a decision and I'm glad about that because honestly I'm kinda on the fence about it....I had an amazing time doing it and I loved it, but I have a lot of other things happening, and it's going to come down to me making a choice of what I want to do for the next year." Since J.Lo is taking her sweet time, Fox has been forced to go to Plan B, and that plan involves either Shakira or Shania Twain filling Lopez's spot, should she walk. I like Shania, I think she would be best. She needs a comeback. On the same sort of note, Simon Cowell's The X-Factor debuts on Fox September 21st and there's rumors that Mariah Carey, who is supposed to join the show for an episode or two as a mentor, could now find herself a more permanent role as a mentor the entire season! Good call, who better to teach someone how to sing that Mariah!Â Sorry guys, Landy Antebellum's Hillary Scott is OFF the market! She got engaged to her boyfriend over the weekend, his name is Chris Tyrell and he's the bands drummer! She's 25 and he's 24. She says quote, "It was just us out on a beautiful deck overlooking a lake in east Tennessee. We had just been on a hike and in our workout clothes and he hit the knee!" Good for her!Â Could Susan Lucci be moving from Pine Valley to Wisteria Lane?? She's talking to Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry about joining the prime-time soap. For now, Lucci is focusing on All My Children's final weeks. The long-running soap ends on Friday, Sept 23rd. I personally think this would be a great idea!
Megan Fox was dating now-husband Brian Austin Green while filming "Transformers", but that apparently didn't stop co-star Shia LaBeouf. Asked by Details magazine if he ever hooked up with Fox, Shia nods and explains, "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them. I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen." When asked specifically about Megan's relationship status with Brian at the time, Shia replied by saying "I don't know" twelve times, finally ending with, "It was what it was." Oh yeah, it was alright, it was!
Jennifer Lopez will join Cameron Diaz in the upcoming film adaptation of top-selling pregnancy guide from authors Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel, âWhat To Expect When Youâre Expectingâ. J.Lo will play Holly, a woman who adopts a baby from overseas after having trouble conceiving with her husband. They start shooting this summer and it's expected to hit theaters on Motherâs Day Weekend 2012.
"Ugly Betty" is officially off the market! America Ferrera married her longtime love Ryan Piers Williams over the weekend. The wedding also served as a mini cast reunion for the former ABC show. American's co-star Vanessa Williams loaned out her upstate New York home for the nuptials, while castmember Judith Light officiated the ceremony. Other stars in attendance at the celebration included Rebecca Romijn (another "Ugly Betty" co-star) and husband Jerry O'Connell, as well as Ferrera's "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" castmates Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn, and Blake Lively -- though her boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio was missing from the celebration.
"American Idol" is considering a future without Jennifer Lopez. She is unsure whether to go on tour, star in a movie, or return to the show. She got $12 million for doing one season. Executives are already thinking about replacements. Steven Tyler has already signed on for season 11. Who do you think should sit behind the judges table?
In our Hot Couple Alert today, Jason Sudeikis is moving on up! He used to date hotties like âMad Menâ star January Jones, then he went onto date âHorrible Bossesâ co-star Jennifer Aniston. Now itâs date number two in less than one week for Eva Mendes! The two were seen on a double date with Jason Bateman and his wife over the weekend. "They dined together at L'Artusi in the West Village," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "When Eva wanted a cigarette, they all went outside for a smoke break and the Saturday Night Live funnyman was overheard saying, 'We're a great team!'" Less than a week before, Eva and Jason were spotted holding hands at a benefit in Santa Monica. According to reports, they were also seen making out in the parking lot following the show.
If you think Jim Carrey can have any woman he wants, you're wrong. The last time Jim hosted "Saturday Night Live", he developed a major crush on Kristen Wiig. And he did everything he could to land that action. But he failed. He sent her flowers and notes and fell all over himself to congratulate her on the success of her movie "Bridesmaids". He even showed up backstage at "SNL" to ask her out. But Kristen is spoken for, so Jim got nowhere. A source says, Kristen finally said, So she finally told him, 'Stop asking me out. The answer is no!'"
A while back we heard that Charlie Sheen's "Two and a Half Men" character, Charlie Harper, would not be killed off. Mainly because it's a comedy, and there's really no reason to lay anything that heavy on the fans. But also because it leaves the door open for Charlie to make appearances if he and creator Chuck Lorre were to ever bury the hatchet. But now, we've heard that Chuck is going to kill Charlie off, just to ensure that he can never return to the show. Supposedly, the producers are kicking around several death scenarios, including having Charlie drive his car off a cliff. Then Ashton Kutcher's character would join the show by purchasing the house. Not sure if Alan and Jake come along in a package deal?
Beyonce sat down with Piers Morgan last night in an exclusive interview. She talked about her career, her marriage, and singing for President Obama. She mentioned that she has no plans to retire, but isn't quite ready for a baby yet either. She had mentioned in different interviews long ago that by the time she turns 30, she would be doing both. She turns 30 on September 4. Her album "4" is out today. When Piers asked her who has the better booty, her or Jennifer Lopez, she laughed, but eventually gave it to JLo.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have reportedly picked a wedding date. Guests have all been sworn to secrecy, although it's believed to be the first weekend in August. They are looking at private estates in L.A. and talking with Vera Wang.
There was a pretty awkward moment at last night's "BET Awards" involving Rihanna and Chris Brown. Fortunately, it wasn't a face-to-face meeting, because Rihanna wasn't there. A young woman who'd won a contest was brought onstage to announce the winner of the night's Viewers' Choice Award. And she was supposed to get the winner's name off of a fancy new Sprint device she was holding. But something got messed up somehow. She looked down at the tablet, then up at what we assume was a Teleprompter. She had a confused look on her face as she announced Chris Brown as the winner for "Look at Me Now". Then, she corrected herself and said it was actually Rihanna for "What's My Name". So then Drake took the stage to accept the award, since he's on the track. He started off his speech by saying, "That was awkward." But that wasn't the end of it. The show went to commercial, and when they came back, the host, Kevin Hart, announced that Chris Brown did win the award after all. BET programming executive Stephen Hill admitted the error was BETâs fault. âThat BET Awards Viewerâs Choice mix-up was due to human error,â he Tweeted. âAnd I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected.â Here is the full list of winners:

Normally, "The Brady Bunch" or Florence Henderson would never be a part of E on the Z. But I can't help laughing at the headline: "Carol Brady got crabs!" Here's the story, she has a new book coming out in September in which she reveals that she got an STD in the late 1960s, from New York Mayor John Lindsay. She was married at the time. It happened at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Florence says, "I was lonely. I knew it wasn't the right thing to do. So, what did I do? I did it." Apparently, this was a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am situation, because Florence and Mayor Lindsay didn't even spend the night together. Florence went home, then woke up the next morning with, "little black things" crawling all over her bed and body. She made a quick trip to the doctor to get it taken care of. Lindsay was mayor from 1966 to 1973. He died in 2000. Florence remained married to husband Ira Bernstein until their divorce in 1985. Florence's book, "Life Is Not a Stage", comes out in September.
Congratulations Mr. Bond! Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz got married in New York last Wednesday. There were only four people in attendance: Daniel's 18-year-old daughter Ella, Rachel's 4-year-old son Henry and two friends. Daniel and Rachel met last year on the set of their upcoming movie "Dream House", in which they play husband and wife. It's due in theaters in September.
Justin Bieber nearly gotÂ tackled at a public appearance in New York City when his security got into an altercation with a crazy fan, but it all turned out to be a big misunderstanding. Justin was signing autographs outside of Macy's and the crowd started to get "unruly," so a plainclothes cop ran up to Justin to help protect him from the insanity. But Justin and his entourage thought the guy was one of the crazy fans, and perhaps a creepy one too, since this was an adult male, so Justin's bodyguards immediately grabbed the guy, and started pulling him away. That's when the guy identified himself as a cop, and cited Justin's security for disorderly conduct. Supposedly, Justin's people straightened everything out and Justin continued signing autographs. You can see Bieber come out of Macy's at :24 and then you'll see security hover around him and usher him inside right away.
Â Corey Monteith seems like a pretty straight kid on "Glee". But Corey's own teen years were nothing like those of his character, Finn Hudson. Corey was skipping school, getting drunk and smoking pot by the age of 13. By 16, he was onto other drugs and, quote, "out of control." He also dropped out of school. After an unsuccessful stint in rehab at the age of 19, Corey stole a "significant amount of money" from a family member. The relative gave him an ultimatum. Either get clean or face robbery charges. He says, "I was done fighting myself. I finally said, 'I'm gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I'm doing this.'" He adds, "I don't want kids to think it's okay to drop out of school and get high, and they'll be famous actors, too. But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it."
Missy Elliott hasn't released a new album in six years and she's been delaying her "upcoming" album, "Block Party", since late 2007. As it turns out, Missy was diagnosed with Graves' disease back in 2008. It's an incurable autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid. She's been undergoing regular radiation treatments to help with the effects of the disease, which include "dizzy spells, lumps in her throat, mood swings, hair loss, and bulging eyes." She's gotten it under control, at least for now. She tells "People" magazine, "I'm 30 pounds lighter because I've been exercising. My thyroid is functioning, so I haven't had to take medication in about nine months. But you live with it for the rest of your life." Before she started the treatments, Missy was in rough shape. She explains, "I was driving and trying to put my foot on the brake, but my leg was jumping. I couldn't keep the brake down and almost crashed. I couldn't write because my nervous system was so bad. I couldn't even use a pen." Missy says she is working on a comeback album, but she didn't elaborate, so we don't know whether it's still the "Block Party" project or not. By the way, Missy will be on next Wednesday's episode of "VH1's Behind the Music" where she'll talk about her condition and being molested as a child.
Beyonce is set to headline Glastonbury on Sunday night. It's a music festival in England comparable to a Lalapalooza over here. We thinkÂ former Destinyâs Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland could be joining her on stage for a classic reunion. Originally the plan was simply for Kelly and Michelle to head down to Somerset to see their old girlfriend. But now we have reason to believe the idea is for the two girls to join her on stage towards the end of her set for a medley of their hits. But whatever happens, the three girls are getting back together at Glasto and planning on having an absolute ball.
In today's Hot Couple Alert, Scarlett Johansson and Justin Timberlake reportedly hooked up for a night of passion. Tuesday night, they enjoyed a drink together at New York club Kenmare. They then went to his apartment. She left at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Both recently ended relationships
The second you heard Elisabetta Canalis say she expects to be married someday, you just had to know it meant she and George Clooney were either headed for a breakup or already broken up. And now it's official. They issued a joint statement yesterday saying, "We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal, and we hope everyone can respect our privacy." George and Elisabetta were just spotted having dinner last week in Lake Como, Italy, where George owns a home. It's not clear if they were still together at the time. It was earlier this month that Elisabetta said, "I am a firm believer in marriage, in the future I will be married." Judging by what he's said in numerous interviews, George is not nearly as firm a believer in marriage.
Production on "The Amazing Spider-Man" wrapped in May, but the love story between costars Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield is far from over. They got close during filming and have been hooking up in the Hot Couple Alert. "They haven't gone public, but he's told his friends," an insider says. Sparks definitely flew between the costars at the MTV Movie Awards on June 5th. They flirted at the ceremony and hung out more at the after party. They decided to keep things quiet, the source adds, because Andrew just broke up with his girlfriend of three years in May. (He was dating âRaising Hopeâ actress Shannon Woodward â Emma recently parted ways with Kieran Culkin, her boyfriend since last fall.)
Â Â Lindsay Lohan has been ordered back to court this morning so a judge can decide whether she violated her probation while serving house arrest. Some reports say that Lindsay tested positive for alcohol about a week ago. She reportedly took two tests, passing one and failing the other. She tested negative for drugs on both tests. The probation department is supposedly going to recommend she be yanked from home confinement and sent to jail. Given Lindsay's current predicament, her interview in the new issue of "Us Weekly" is just a bit more interesting. She said, "When my friends come over, they're not drinking. Alcohol is not in my house, so it's just not a part of my life." Oh really? To add to the madness, she was supposed to do an interview Tuesday with Matt Lauer for the "Today" show. But Lindsay's rep canceled the interview at the last minute. I guess Lindsay's camp was expecting this to be a quick, 15-minute interview for "Today". But it turned out they wanted to do a longer piece and air parts of it on "Dateline" as well. Her rep ultimately told Matt they weren't going to do it, but Matt was a perfect gentleman.
Â Katie Couric and Anderson Cooper have signed up for their own talk shows, could Randy Jackson the next daytime talk show host? Sources say the âAmerican Idolâ judge and reality TV producer has been pitching a talk show concept to potential buyers around town. "He wants to talk about things that will be hip next," says one source. "He thinks he has his finger on the pulse." Ryan Seacrest tried his hand at daytime back in 2004. His syndicated series lasted just nine months.
Britney Spears - "I Wanna Go"Disney has posted a five minute clip of "Cars 2" on their website. Check it out!! The movie comes out tomorrow.
The other man who was killed in the crash that took the life of "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn has been identified. His name was Zachary Hartwell, and he was a veteran of three tours of duty in Iraq. He was also a newlywed. He got married last October and Ryan Dunn's girlfriend was a bridesmaid. Zachary was one of the guys at the bar with Ryan in the hours before the crash. A source says they were celebrating, "winning some kind of deal together." Ryan was driving Zachary home when they crashed. We still don't know if alcohol played a part in the crash. Toxicology test results won't be back for four to six weeks. But police now say Ryan's Porsche was doing 130 miles per hour when it crashed. The local police chief said he's, "never seen a car destroyed in an automobile accident the way this car was, even before it caught on fire." Meanwhile, the coroner's report says both men were killed by blunt force trauma from the crash itself, plus burn injuries from the ensuing fire. Apparently, it was impossible to determine if one or the other was the immediate cause of death, so the coroner just listed both. Bam Margera was in Arizona Monday when he heard, but he returned to Pennsylvania to visit the crash site yesterday. And he was not in good shape, watch below.
Last night Jennifer Lopezâs husband Marc Anthony was on âThe Tonight Showâ with Jay Leno. Jay asked about their 3 year-old twins, Max and Emme. Marc admitted there was a little mishap with their potty training. Max had an accident in a pool and the hotel charged them $6,000 to clean it since the poo had gotten into the filtration system. Sheesh!!
Weâve recently heard that Justin Bieber is having a problem with lady thieves. Apparently too many fans have kept trying to steal them.Â His team has started to stick his dirty undies in a "burn bag" then torch them! A hotel employee in Canada was recently caught with the Biebâs drawers in her purse, so the rule now is to get rid of the pairs he's worn right away.
If you couldn't get enough of Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson in "Newlyweds" on MTV, there's good news! You're gonna get a sequel! TLC is televising Nick's upcoming wedding to Vanessa Minnillo and the special promises to feature, "VIP access" to the ceremony. There's no airdate yet, but the special has been tentatively titled "Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding".
"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was killed yesterday when he crashed his Porsche 911 GT3 outside Philadelphia. He was 34. The crash occurred a little before 3:00 A.M. yesterday morning. And it was bad. The car crashed through a guardrail and into the woods, then caught fire. It was smashed into pieces and completely burned, to the point where the only way police were able to identify it was from a door that was thrown off and not incinerated. There was a passenger whose body hasn't even been identified yet because it was in such horrid condition. Ryan was only identified by his tattoos and his hair. Police think the car was speeding, but nobody knows yet if alcohol was involved, but it sounds like a distinct possibility. One source claims that Ryan and some friends were drinking earlier that night at a bar and that he'd had at least three beers and three shots between 10:30pm and 2:10am, and he was wasted. He even Tweeted a picture of himself at the bar drinking. An employee at Barnaby's says Dunn only had a few beers, and "didn't seem intoxicated." Of course, he could be just covering his ass. Bars can be sued in situations like this.
Nicki and Britney Spears have NOT been getting along during their âFemme Fetaleâ tour and on Saturday night it got ugly! An insider said, "Britney is upset that Nicki kept running over her allotted time. In Sacramento she was over about 10 minutes. But on Saturday night in San Jose, Nicki went over by nearly 45 minutes." And Britney tried to step to Nicki and her security team. The insider added, "Britney came by Nicki's dressing room with her dancers. They were talking ish like they were going to do something. Nicki came out of her dressing room and at first was going to beat someone's ass. But when she saw how ridiculous Britney and them looked, she just laughed." The tour is still scheduled to go on for another couple of months. Good luck girls! Who do you got in a throw-down girlfight between Nikki and Brit Brit?
Â Â Lil Wayne's fourth and most recent baby mama Nivea was arrested in Atlanta for DUI on Sunday night. She crashed her car into a tree while on her way home from the wedding of Wayne's first baby mama and ex-wife, Toya Carter. Just to add to the confusion, Nivea just happened to be hanging out with Weezy baby mama number three, Lauren London. According to reports, there was a child in the car at the time and it turns out it was Neal, her 18 month-old son with Lil Wayne. Good job, mom. According to police, she had "bloodshot, glassy eyes and smelled like alcohol." She was also beligerent and rude to the officers. At one point she said to them, "I could buy your job, ho!" She was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and reckless driving. Yesterday on Twitter, Nivea claimed she was not drinking and driving.
Â Â Paris Hilton and Cy Waits have broken up for good this time. After about a year together, they have called it quits. A friend said, "Cy finds it difficult to live his life with her in the spotlight and that's what caused their split. There was no drama, it was amicable, but things didn't work out."
Amy Winehouse has attempted more comebacks in a shorter amount of time than anyone I've ever heard of. The status of her latest comeback attempt is: Dead in the water. And that's not surprising to anyone. Amy, who recently spent a week in rehab, performed in Belgrade, Serbia, on Saturday night and here's how it went: A local newspaper called it, "the worst concert in the history of Belgrade." Amy arrived an hour late, stumbled around the stage, seemed as if she couldn't remember her lyrics and occasionally "dropped her microphone and disappeared for periods of time." One report said the 20,000 fans "could hardly tell which song she was singing." In clips that have popped up online, Amy seems a bit mentally-distracted, if not outright trashed. Naturally, she was booed. Here's a video of Amy doing "Just Friends" here's video of her "performance" of "Back to Black". In the second video, she throws the mic stand at the 1:25 mark, and she throws the mic itself at the 3:42 mark. The Belgrade show was supposed to be the first stop in a 12-date European tour, but that won't be happening. Yesterday, Amy's camp said that she was canceling tonight's scheduled show in Turkey, and Wednesday's show in Greece. The next show after that is scheduled for July 8th in Spain. That one's still a go, at least for now. Her rep issued a statement saying that the future of the tour will be, "worked out as soon as possible. Amy feels that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home. She would like to apologize to fans, but feels that this is the right thing to do."
Gwyneth Paltrow made a surprise appearance on the "Glee" tour in East Rutherford, New Jersey, last Thursday night and yes, she sang "Forget You", the censored version of Cee Lo Green's "Forget You". For those who are cringing at the thought of Gwyneth performing live, she actually sounded OK. By the way, her cameo may have been a "surprise" for the crowd, but it wasn't completely random. That concert was being filmed for the upcoming "Glee Live! 3D!" movie, which will hit theaters for a limited run on August 12th. Gwyneth was dressed in-character, and even ended the performance by saying, "let's go get some tacos," which was one of her lines from "Glee".
Lance Bass is developing a show for VH1 where he pledges to find the next boy band. It's unclear which formula it will have, but it sounds like the rest of the singing competition shows with judges and weekly eliminations. Lance says, "It's a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands. I got a member from Backstreet Boys, A.J. McLean; a member from 'N Sync, Joey Fatone; a member from New Kids on the Block, Joe McIntyre; and a member from New Edition, Bobby Brown." Technically, he doesn't "have" Bobby yet, but Lance is optimistic. He says, "I think Bobby will do it. I think he'd love it." The show seems to draw comparisons to the "coaching" that the musicians do on "The Voice". Lance explains, "They're all going to form a boy band, each, from the most talented guys in America that I've scouted. And then they'll go head-to-head in a competition to see who the best boy band is, so it's bragging rights for the guy in the group, for sure." There aren't any other details yet, including the show's title and premiere date. Lance has actually sold six reality shows to various networks recently, but this is the only one he elaborated on.

Chris Brown featuring Justin Bieber - "Next 2 You"
Hugh Hefner is getting his revenge against Crystal Harris for dumping him less than a week before their wedding. Hef Tweeted, "Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover. Look for it on newsstands." She's still on the cover of the July "Playboy" and it was supposed to say, "Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner" but the issue will now come with a sticker that reads, "Runaway bride in this issue!"
I suspect most of the stories about how spoiled Suri Cruise is are complete B.S., but for some reason we bite every time. We recently heard that Suri has a $150,000 shoe collection. Now, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes bought their daughter a $100,000, fully-loaded treehouse. Technically, it's on stilts, but it's got electricity, running water and shag carpeting. There are also security cameras and a battery of nannies who cater to Suri during playtime. Instead of a rope ladder, you get into the house by climbing a spiral staircase.
Â Oprah Winfrey made America's dreams come true for 25 years. Now it's her turn. She recently said in an interview that she does have a dream, "I have a dream of O.J. Simpson confessing to me. And I am going to make that happen people." Do you think Oprah can get O.J. to do what he wouldn't do in front of a judge and jury?
Almost a year after she wore it on MTV, Lady Gaga's meat dress has gone on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The dress needed some prep work though. A spokesman says, "We sent it to a taxidermist, they put it into a meat locker and then we started working on it and created this chemical solution and treated it with that. Then they had to do a little bit of painting to bring it back and give it a little bit more color."

Today would've been Tupac Shakur's 40th birthday. But it isn't because he was murdered 15 years ago, when he was 25. The murder is still unsolved. However, a confession was made in the non-lethal Tupac shooting and robbery that happened two years before he was killed. His name is Dexter Isaac and he's currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery, and other offenses. He sent a letter, claiming that James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond paid him $2,500 to do it. Once source claims Jimmy just wanted Tupac's diamond ring to give to his girlfriend at the time. Dexter apparently decided to turn on Jimmy, after Jimmy fingered him in a drug trafficking case. In his letter, Dexter said, "I want to apologize to Tupac's family and for the mistake I did for that sucker Jimmy Henchman. I am trying to clean it up." The letter also insinuates that Isaac has information on the murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. Dexter says, "Now I'm not going to talk about my friend Biggie's death or 2Pac's death, but I would like to give their mothers some closure. It's about time that someone did, and I will do so at a different time."
Reese Witherspoon owns two miniature donkeys, did you know that? Probably not. They're names are Honky and Tonky. I'm telling you this because they're annoying the crap out of her neighbors. The donkeys make a lot of noise. A source says, "It's so bad that a few residents have sent her a letter." Nobody wants Reese to move. She's apparently very well-liked in the neighborhood. They just want her to shut her asses up.
Russell Crowe has been added to the cast of the new Superman movie, "Man of Steel". He will play Jor-El, Superman's real dad who dies when their home planet Krypton blows up. Kevin Costner is playing Jonathan Kent, Superman's adoptive dad or, Earth father, if you want to get cute. Diane Lane plays Jonathan's wife, Martha Kent. Henry Cavill from "The Tudors" is playing Superman and Amy Adams will be Lois Lane.
Gerard Butler strikes again! In our Hot Couple Alert, despite reports that he and Jessica Biel were getting a little more than friendly on the set of their latest film, sources are now claiming that the scoundrel of an actor was recently spotted getting cozy with none other than Ashley Greene for nearly two hours at the Boom Boom Room in NYC earlier in the month, and they even left together - around 3am!
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was rushed to a hospital emergency room after being found unconscious in her home with a rope around her neck in a suicide attempt. A source said Amber was found just before noon yesterday and later admitted to hospital staffers she had taken a cocktail of pills. On-again-off-again boyfriend Gary Shirley became concerned about Amber's state of mind after having a phone conversation and sent his mom to check on her. No word on where her 2 year-old daughter Leah was during the chaos. "It's believed she may have taken an overdose of some kind of pill," the source revealed. "She also may have tried to tie a piece of rope or string around her neck." Police and an ambulance unit were called to the scene and Portwood was transported to a local hospital. She was admitted into the emergency room, where she later regained consciousness and was stabilized. She pled guilty to two counts of domestic battery last week, but escaped any jail time by striking a deal. As part of a plea deal, a judge ordered her to serve two years probation instead of spending time in jail. Portwood is required to get her high school diploma, complete 30 days of inpatient treatment with outpatient follow-up and start a college fund for Leah, of which Amber must invest $10,000 of her own money. She had been facing two felony counts and one misdemeanor for three separate attacks on Gary late last year.
At 85 years old, Hugh Hefner has been dumped. He was supposed to marry 25-year-old Crystal Harris on Saturday, but yesterday, she called off the wedding. Hugh Tweeted, "The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart." Now one source is reporting that Crystal decided to move out and cancel the wedding after she and Hugh had a nasty argument over the weekend. There's no word what it was about. But you might remember back in March was a rumor about Crystal hooking up with Jordan McGraw, son of Dr. Phil. But since Crystal is an aspiring singer, and Jordan is a record producer, their relationship was explained away as business. Now that Jordan's name has popped back up, Crystal's rep is denying it yet again. He says, "It's nonsense and has nothing to do whatsoever with the split." By the way, Hef also Tweeted, "Since we're not getting married on Saturday, I've scheduled a movie: "Runaway Bride". Seems appropriate." And then posted another Tweet hyping Crystal's music career. He said, "Crystal's "Club Queen" became available on iTunes today. I hope it's a hit."
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have set up a wedding gift registry at a ritzy joint called Gearys of Beverly Hills. And they're asking for about $172,000 worth of stuff. You can see the registry for yourself HERE. Kim's rep says it's legit. But, the registry says the wedding is happening on Halloween. Anyway, among other things, Kim and Kris want the following:
-An extra-large Baccarat crystal vase, $7,850
-A black Lalique tourbillon vase, $6,500
-A black Lalique desk clock, $1,115

-24 Hermes American dinner plates, at $225 each
-Six Buccellati butter servers, at $520 each
-Five sets of four L'Objet gold napkin rings with crystal, at $150 each
-A Christopfle 1925 coffee pot, $1,650 (It's another $1,710 for the matching creamer and sugar bowl, but go ahead and splurge. I'm sure Kim's only going to get married once in her life, right?)
-A Baccarat Harmonie pitcher, $925
We told you earlier this week about Soulja Boy's mess on Facebook. He had unleashed a homophobic, racist, profanity-filled tirade on his wall after becoming enraged with all the haters that were dissing him online. Well, Soulja Boy claims he isn't responsible for those statements because he did not say them. Yes, he's using the ever-popular I've been hacked defense. He says, "I wanted to clear the air and let everyone know that my Facebook got hacked. I had administrators on my account that no longer work with me. The hackers used these old accounts to post hateful messages. This was not done by me or anyone on my team and I'm upset that I am being labeled as a racist and homophobic person." Do you believe him?
Almost 5.4 million people "Like" Soulja Boy on Facebook, but not all of them actually LIKE him. And Soulja Boy wants the haters to get off his page. I guess Soulja Boy can't understand why so many people are dissing him on his Facebook page since you have to click his "like" button in order to post anything on his wall. In a Facebook rant, he went off, "Who the [eff] 'likes' an artist on Facebook who they don't LIKE. DUMB A**. If you don't like ME or my music, UNLIKE the page and leave it to the people who do enjoy their artist giving updates out. Ish is getting out of hand now. Haters are so [effing] stupid! 'I don't like Soulja Boy so I'm gonna like his Facebook and wait till he post a video to be the 1st one to comment'. Go get some [rhymes with 'wussy'] and stop being a lame." In another rant, Soulja went after white people. He said, "[rhymes with 'wussy'] ass white boys make me sick man. LET A BLACK MAN SHINE AND DO SOMETHING POSITIVE!!! DAMN YALL ALREADY GOT MONEY AND LIVING RIGHT STOP HOLDING US BLACK PEOPLE DOWN TRYING TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE WITH THEIR LIVES! YALL BEEN [EFFING] WITH US SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME." Wow. Relax Soulja Boy. Both of those posts have since been taken down. Good job, record label.
You may not have known this, because it was very much under-the-radar, but Demi Lovato had been dating Wilmer Valderrama. He was with her before and during her recent treatment for "emotional and physical issues." But he's not with her anymore. They broke up recently. A source says, "The age difference meant they were in completely different places in their lives." That's not surprising. He's 31, she's 18. Meanwhile, we're also just finding out that Demi's mother, Dianna Hart de la Garza, recently checked into rehab herself. There's no word what she was treated for, but she has already completed the program and is back with her family. A source says, "It has been a tough year for Demi, and her mom has been a constant source of support. But fame has also taken its toll on her family."
A promo for "America's Got Talent" included an accidental shout-out to a porno website called "YouPorn" last Wednesday. The promo was demonstrating how to submit a video to the show and when it showed someone typing "YouTube" into the address bar, the browser history menu dropped down and "YouPorn" was one of the pages on it. That means that some pervert had apparently visited YouPorn on that computer and had not cleared its browser history before taping the promo. As strange as that is, it's even stranger that someone caught it, because it's so fast that you have to pause the promo in order to see it. Someone took the time to pause it for ya, you can see the proof HERE.
Octomom, the infamous mother of 14 is preparing for a beat down of her own after signing on for Celebrity Boxing Federation. Nadya Suleman will step into the wrestling ring to battle an opponent and she is willing to take on anyone. The CEO said, "Nadya will take on any non professional or trained personalities in the three round novelty match. I'm excited to have Nadya on board. I was always looking to get Octo-Mom in the ring and with her in-shape body I'm sure she will be a perfect fit." She'll strap on the big gloves for three, one minute rounds wearing headgear. Tickets go on sale June 14th and will cost $20 each. The match will take place on Wednesday June 29th at in Westville, New Jersey. Who would you like to see her fight?
New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett has kind of amended his description of his supposed relationship with Kim Kardashian. On CNN's "Showbiz Tonight" this weekend, Lockett admitted that he and Kim have never met face-to-face! But he maintains that they had a physical relationship because Kim was doing naughty things to herself while talking to him on the phone. He said, "I've said before that it was a physical relationship. But when I mean 'physical' I say that meaning there was a physical aspect in the relationship, meaning that, I don't really want to get into the details, but she did tell me that she was, you know, touching herself in a physical way over the phone towards me." Lockett claims the relationship started when actress Lauren London (who's a friend of Kim's) asked for his number on Kim's behalf. Ten minutes after he gave Lauren his digits, he got a call from Kim. Well, Lauren says that's not true at all. She claims she has an imposter and her supposed involvement in this situation, or any quotes attributed to her in the tabloids, might actually be the work of this person. Here is part of his interview on "Showbiz Tonight" on CNN.
This could be the most random Hot Couple Alert ever: Kanye WestÂ and Mary-Kate Olsen might be hooking up! They were supposedly seen making out at a New York City club last week. Today is Mary-Kate and Ashley's birthday, they turn 25 and Kanye is 34 in case you were wondering.
Selena Gomez has been hospitalized twice since Thursday and it turns out she has blood pressure issues. Selena was rushed to the hospital Thursday following a taping of "The Tonight Show", because she was suffering from nausea and a severe headache. Her reps said Friday that she was "on the mend" but boyfriend Justin Bieber was worried enough that he skipped the Stanley Cup Finals in Vancouver to be with her. (Justin is Canadian. If you have an opportunity to be at the Stanley Cup Finals, you don't back out for just anything. Ask Nicodemus.) Selena was back at the hospital on Saturday and that she's undergone a number of tests for, "blood pressure issues." At this point, nobody knows what the problem is. The obvious rumor going around is that Selena is pregnant. As far as we know, that's not true.
This week, while performing his usual energetic show, Chris Brown began having difficulty breathing. According to one source, Chris may have over-exerted himself during a concert in Denver. But that didn't stop him! When Chris finished the show, the paramedics rushed over to stabilize him and had to use oxygen to make that happen. No worries, though, he's said to have made a full recovery already. What's funny to me though, is that in these pictures, he looks like he could be just breathing in some of that flavored air you get at those oxygen bars.
Flo Rida was busted for DUI in Miami Beach early yesterday morning. He was also popped for driving with a suspended license because he failing to pay a previous traffic fine. It doesn't sound like the police could've missed him. He was spotted erratically swerving through South Beach in his $1.7 million red and black 2008 Bugatti. When the officers pulled him over, they found him sporting bloodshot, watery eyes. Flo's speech was also slurred, and his breath reeked of alcohol. The cop asked him to do a field sobriety test and Flo reportedly responded, "I can't do this. I don't think I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let's do another test. I live on the other side of the bridge. I can make it home." He was arrested and ended up posting a blood-alcohol level of .185, which is more than twice the legal limit. Flo Rida posted a $2,000 bond and was released. By the way, the police report says that fans were "trying to get officers to let Flo Rida go. Some were even offering to drive him home."
A 16-year-old girl got the opportunity to take some pictures with Rihanna at a recent "meet and greet" and Rihanna got a little playful during the shoot. Basically, she grabbed the girl's booty, and puckered her lips for the camera. Another shot features a third girl getting in on the action hanging on Rihanna's other side. It seems like some silly fun that probably thrilled these fans. But one person wasn't happy about it. This 16-year-old's homophobic aunt. MediaTakeOut claims they got an "angry email" from the aunt saying, "I don't know what Rihanna was thinking. I don't want my niece even joking about lesbianism. Not at her age." Click HERE to see the oh-so-lame pictures.
Â Â Kim Kardashian has officially threatened to sue New England Patriots safety Bret Locket if he doesn't stop saying he had sex with Kim and retract his previous statements.Kim's attorney sent a letter to Bret's rep saying, "To put it very plainly and clearly, and as Mr. Lockett knows, there is not now, and never has been such a relationship. Ms. Kardashian does not know and has never even met Mr. Lockett." You know if Bret is lying about sleeping with Kim, I think I know why: Dude wants to be a rapper. And this is an excellent way to get a little publicity. He even has a video on YouTube for a song called "Let's Go". It's very professionally done. Do you agree with Nick? He likes it!
Britney Spears has reportedly gotten engaged to long-term boyfriend and former manager Jason Trawick. She is wearing a flower-shaped diamond ring on her wedding finger. She is said to be planning a low-key wedding in Hawaii after she finishes her world tour.
Kim Kardashian looks like a happy bride-to-be on the cover of "People" magazine with her finace Kris Humphries, but there could be trouble for her already. New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett told "In Touch Weekly" that he's been having bedtime fun with Kim for the past five months. Kim denies it and says she doesn't even know who Lockett is. Kim posted a statement on her blog saying, "I knew when I got engaged that rumors and false stories were going to start, but this is ridiculous!!!! I'll be damned if anyone, especially some loser I've never even met, is going to try to come between Kris and me. It's disgusting, and I will be taking legal action against In Touch magazine and Bret Lockett." But Bret is sticking by his story. He went straight to TMZ and called Kim a liar. Asked how he felt about Kim possibly suing him, he said, "It really doesn't bother me because when all the allegations are correct and all the facts are in place. At the end of the day, Kim knows what happened and I know what happened, so Kim can deny this all she wants to." But when the TMZ guys asked Bret for details, like where he and Kim met, he seemed stumped, and he told them that such details are irrelevant. Ultimately, it sounds like Bret came forward mainly because Kim is claiming she doesn't even know him.Â Watch his interview with TMZ HERE.
Â Â Lupe Fiasco is one of the more "socially conscious" mainstream rappers, and this week, he used his pedestal to say that he thinks President Barack Obama is a "terrorist," and that he doesn't vote because it's "meaningless." Now, Lupe backed up what he said with an explanation and while his thoughts aren't exactly patriotic, you might be able see where he's coming from. Here's what Lupe said, "To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. For me, I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because itâs really just some oil that we can really get on our own." And here's how he explained not voting, "I don't vote. I don't get involved in politics. Because it's meaningless, to be honest. First of all, I'm a real big believer if I'm going to vouch for someone, I'm going to stand behind everything they do. If I'm going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says I stand for this person, then I have to take responsibility for everything that he does. I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere." Skip forward about 2 minutes in to hear him talk about President Obama. Let us know what you think he was trying to say? Or maybe how he could have said it better??
Alec Baldwin may be running for mayor of New York City. His contract with "30 Rock" is up this season so he won't be busy acting. Something that will probably help his cause is the news that broke last night about Anthony Weiner. He likely will remove himself from running for mayor since he just got his wife pregnant. Good timing, fool. In case it matters to you, Alec is a Democrat.
Selena Gomez has a song called "Bang Bang Bang" and if the lyrics are as literal as they seem, it sounds like she's telling off her ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, and bragging about her new love Justin Bieber. Here are some of the lyrics:
My new boy knows the way I want it.
He's got more swagger than you, he's got more swagger than you do.
My new boy really likes to flaunt this,
He's not hiding me you know, he's showing me off you know?
Bang, bang, bang, I'm breakin' in.
Stealin' all my love back, giving it to him.
Bang, bang, bang, this time I win.
I thought your love was all that, 'til I let him in.
For what it's worth, Selena did co-write it. It'll be on the new Selena Gomez & The Scene album, "When the Sun Goes Down", which comes out on June 28th.
Katy Perry has created a geeky teen alter ego named Kathy Beth Terry to promote the video for her song "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)". She already has her own Facebook and Twitter accounts. According to her Twitter profile, Kathy says she's, "13 and in the 8th grade. I like Sudoku puzzles, the solar system, high-school science fairs, Skip-It, Weenie Babies and LOVE JTT!" That would be Jonathan Taylor Thomas. He's 29 now but he used to be quite the teen heart throb when he was on "Home Improvement". Here's a 30-second teaser of the video. The whole thing drops next Tuesday.
Another track from Beyonce's new album has leaked. This one's called "Party", and it features Andre 3000 from Outkast. Kanye West also provided a few ines. You can check it out by scrolling down to the audio player, here. "4" comes out June 28th.
When Lauryn Hill announced that she was pregnant with her sixth child, everyone just assumed the dad was her longtime boyfriend Rohan Marley, who fathered her other five. But yesterday, Rohan Tweeted, "2 Things, I'm not married and I don't have anyone expecting anything. Trust me, the info out there is so incorrect for so many years. Thx for twitter. I check a few things." There's no word back from Lauryn yet.

Katie Couric has confirmed that she's developing a syndicated daytime talk show for ABC. She'll also contribute to ABC News although it's too early to say what her duties will be, and how frequently she'll be popping up on TV. There also aren't many details on the talk show. We know it'll be an hour-long and it'll air sometime in the afternoon, possibly at 3:00 or 4:00 P.M. ABC has not commented on the status of "General Hospital". There's no word on the format of the show, but Katie previously said she envisioned it to be built around, "smart conversation." By the way, Matt Lauer will not be involved, but there is talk that Katie is interested in having a "sidekick" on the show. No potential candidates have been mentioned yet. The show, which is still untitled, is expected to premiere in September of 2012.
Sean Kingston has been upgraded from critical to serious condition and he's now breathing without the help of machinery. Yesterday, he took his first steps since he slammed his jet ski into a bridge in Miami Beach the day before Memorial Day. His rep says, "Sean thanks his friends, family and fans for their outpouring of prayers and well wishes." Sean suffered a broken jaw and wrist, and sucked a good deal of water into his lungs. A female passenger suffered only minor injuries. He's still looking at a good five weeks of recovery.
Snoop Dogg is developing a TV show. And out ofÂ all the limitless possibilities, including reality shows, he's doing the one thing that we really don't need any more of at this point: a singing competition show. It's being described as a hip-hop version of "American Idol". Snoop is currently pitching the show to networks, and has received interest from MTV andÂ E!. Supposedly, he's been turned down by NBC, Bravo and Oxygen. Snoop plans on being a judge alongside Jay-Z and, "an old-school legend." For the record, Jay-Z's people say he isn't involved. Wiz Khalifa is interested though. Of course he is. At 23, he's still a relative newcomer. The difference between Wiz and Jay-Z is over 50 million in album sales. Give or take.
After meeting in March, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are engaged. We saw them meet in an episode of "American Idol" when she gushed over himÂ atÂ another Red Carpet function, but Nikki chose the "MTV Movie Awards" to debut the ring on the Red Carpet to the public. She was there toÂ help collect the countlessÂ popcorn awards for "Eclipse".Â She says to doubters, "I love him and I don't care."
It might be over between Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz. A source tells "People" magazine, "They broke up a few days ago. He ended it. However, they have broken up and gotten back together before, so not sure it's forever." No word yet from either of their camps. Perhaps Cameron refused A-Rod's "suggestion" that she get breast implants?
Â Â Joe Jonas has released his first single without Nick and Kevin. It's called "See No More", and it features Chris Brown, who also co-wrote it. The song hits iTunes next Monday and Joe's debut album hits stores on September 6th. I don't think this is the official video, but it's got Joe in it and it's pretty cool. Let me know what you think of his first single!
Last night at the "MTV Movie Awards" it seemed like Blake Lively was the subject of several jokes and she was there to hear them. But really, the moment everyone was talking about was when Robert Pattinson dropped the f-bomb and it went unsensored on the East coast. He was introducing Reese Witherspoon for her MTV Generation Award. Robert mentioned how he played Reese's son in his first movie, "Vanity Fair" then later graduated to playing her lover in their latest film, "Water for Elephants". He said how he, "effed" her in that movie, then added that he learned, "As you get older, it's not always a bad thing to have sexual chemistry with your mother." But when Reese took the stage, she schooled Rob, saying, "By the way Rob, the punch line to your joke was I played your mother. We had a sex scene. So really you're the best mother(effer) in Hollywood." Another classic moment from last night was when Rob and Kristen Stewart won the Best Kiss award, but instead of kissing Kristen, Rob went into the audience and kissed Taylor Lautner who was also up for the award with Kristen. And finally, in case you missed the new "Breaking Dawn" trailer that premiered last night, here ya go!
Oh, wait, one last note before we get to the winners: Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis presented the first award of the night, and joked about rumors that they're hooking up. They decided to prove how platonic and innocent their relationship is by groping each other. Justin grabbed Mila's chest ornaments from behind, and she reached her hand back and palmed his business.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale had a big scare Thursday night. Two-year-old son Zuma climbed up onto a countertop in their home, and fell off. They rushed him to a hospital. After X-rays & an examination, the verdict: a broken arm. Heâs back home.
Rihanna's violent new "Man Down" video has sparked some "controversy," and yesterday Rihanna lashed back at her critics in a tirade on Twitter and even called BET's "106 and Park" to respond. In the video, Rihanna guns down a man who assaulted and possibly raped her. A few organizations including the Parents Television Council have ripped the video. Basically, their point is that Rihanna is a role model, and her video seems to send the message that killing someone is an acceptable form of revenge. One critic even made it personal, arguing, "If Chris Brown shot a woman in his new video and BET premiered it, the world would stop. Rihanna should not get a pass." Well, Rihanna Tweeted, "I'm a 23 year old rock star with no kids! What's up with everybody wanting me to be a parent? We all know how difficult / embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents! And this is why! Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can't hide your kids from society, or they'll never learn how to adapt! It's your job to make sure they don't turn out like US."
In today's Hot Couple Alert,we heard Bradley Cooper and Olivia Wilde are sneaking around together. Well, maybe not sneaking since Us Weekly says they are "definitely hooking up." And you know what that means: There's at least a 25% chance they're hooking up. Anyhoo, Bradley and Olivia were flirting at a party for "The Hangover Part 2" and, apparently, that wasn't a fluke. They've been spending a lot of time together lately. They met when Olivia read for a part in Bradley's movie "Limitless" which she obviously didn't get, since she wasn't in the movie. Both Bradley and Olivia ended long-term relationships in March.
Chelsea Handler's contract with E! Network is up at the end of 2012 and she's hinting that she may walk away from "Chelsea Lately" to do something more intellectual. She said, "I want to do something that's going to utilize my brain a little more than this show. If 'Lately' is the show that I'm going to do, it's going to change. But it may turn out that I'm done with it altogether. I can't keep doing the same thing. My brain is bleeding. I want to do something that's more mindful and isn't celebrity-centered. I'm not looking to totally bail on E! They've done a lot for me, and I like it here, if you take away the Kardashians."
Congratulations to Pink and Carey Hart. They welcomed a baby girl yesterday. Pink went to Twitter saying, I will prepare this munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, and to see its beauty as well." They named her Willow Sage Hart.
Bow Wow is a daddy now! His former girlfriend, Joie Chavis, was rushed to the hospital for an emergency c-section yesterday. She is doing well and so is their little girl. They've named her Shai Moss.
This is how insane we are over this "Twilight" business: The new trailer for "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" will premiere Sunday night on the "MTV Movie Awards". And to hype it, MTV put together a 10-second preview of the trailer. In other words, there's now a trailer for the trailer. It gives a very brief glimpse of Edward and Bella's wedding.

Even though they're no longer together, Justin Timberlake still has mad love for Jessica Biel. In the new issue of "Vanity Fair", he says, "She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, okay? I don't want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me, for instance, her." Justin doesn't say why he and Jessica broke up, but maybe this is a hint, "I think the mistake is that people commit to who that person is right then and not the person they are going to become. That's the art of staying together, is changing together. When you say it like that, it seems damn near impossible, right?" Justin also talks about Britney Spears, "I wish her the best. We haven't spoken in 9 or 10 years. We were two birds of the same feather, small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn't make any sense. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers." It sounds like those were pretty awesome years, though. Justin says, "It was exciting that we were having so much success and we could do whatever we wanted. And I mean that about everybody: Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, Britney, Christina Aguilera. At that time, we could literally go, 'Oh, man, let's go to Bali,' and we'd be on a plane to Bali. We were little kids with big toys. You do the math, that's not going to last." Justin also discussed getting naked with Mila Kunis for their upcoming movie, "Friends with Benefits". He said, "It was fun, but I can't say I'm going to be butt-naked in a movie again. I only did it because I'm young now, and everything's where it's supposed to be. I figured this is the time, before gravity gets the best of me." Their movie comes out July 22nd.
In today's Hot Couple Alert, it looks like Justin Timberlake has moved on to Ashley Olsen. A source tells "Us Weekly", "They are hooking up. They're really trying to keep it on the down-low." Of course Justin's rep is denying it, "They are friends. They are not romantically involved." In recent months, Justin has also been linked with his "Friends with Benefits" co-star Mila Kunis like we talked about above as well as Olivia Wilde. They've known each other since they appeared together in the 2006 film "Alpha Dog".
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, some alleged nude photos of "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively hit the web yesterday. The pics show a young, thin blonde chick taking pictures of herself completely nude in her bathroom. Blake's rep says it's not her, "The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites are 100% fake. Blake has never taken nude photos of herself. Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner." Meanwhile, one thing Blake probably can't deny is that she's dating Leonardo DiCaprio. A more innocent photo of Blake surfaced yesterday, in which she's holding hands with Leo in Monte Carlo and more of her and Leo on Steven Spielberg's yacht.
Â Patrick Dempsy said in an interview with the Italian "Vanity Fair" that he is on his way out of "Grey's Anatomy". He said the show's upcoming season is, "gonna be my last. I do not know what's going to happen to the other characters, but for me it's done." McDreamy added that leaving after eight seasons would be, "bittersweet because it's been great, and a great part of my life. But I can't see me doing it anymore." That seems pretty cut and dry, but Patrick's rep later "clarified" his comments, saying, "He was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds." Regardless, it's not even a sure thing that the show will be back next year. A while back, Ellen Pompeo said she isn't planning on renewing her contract beyond this coming season, and last month, "Grey's" creator Shonda Rhimes said she's approaching the next season as if it could be the last.
Hayden Panettiere recently broke up with her boxer-boyfriend Wladimir Klitschk, but there might be a new athlete in her life. Hayden was seen getting flirty with New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez at In-N-Out Burger in Laguna Hills, California on Monday. Although a source says they're, "just friends." That's where it starts, right? Just remember Blake and Leo were there just a couple of weeks ago!
"Glee" star Naya Rivera who plays Santana will get to work on her debut album once the "Glee" tour is over. She has been songwriting for about ten years. I suppose there will be plenty to sing about on the upcoming album.
Rihanna - "Man Down"
Sean Kingston was severely injured in a jet ski accident Sunday in Miami Beach. As of last night, he remained in critical condition, although he's now stable and was moved from the trauma center to the intensive care unit, which is a good sign. A female who was riding with him was also hospitalized. There's no word on her condition. Officials say Kingston crashed his jet ski into Palm Island Bridge. Police do not believe alcohol was involved. Sean and his passenger were rescued by some people who were on a boat nearby. One of the men said Kingston was convulsing and throwing up blood, but he was conscious. Watch the VIDEO of the man that rescued Sean talking about what happened.
Snooki ran into a problem with the cops in Florence, Italy, yesterday, literally, when she got into a car accident with a police car. Snooki rammed her car into the back of the cop car, with Deena riding shotgun. Fortunately, the accident wasn't serious, but the two officers that were in the police car went to the hospital with minor injuries like "whiplash, bruises and cuts." Snooki and Deena refused medical treatment. No one else was hurt. Interestingly enough, it wasn't a coincidence that there was a police car in front of them. The cruiser was an escort that had been provided for their safety. Contrary to misleading reports online, Snooki was not arrested or "taken into custody." She just went to the police station to fill out an accident report. Sources say, "zero alcohol was involved" but there's no word if this will wind up on season 4 of "The Jersey Shore" or not.
Jose Canseco was hanging out on Twitter on Friday talking about how he wanted to find his next wife, and how he wished it could be Lady Gaga. Here are a few of his Tweets:
-"I need a partner and companion."
-"Where is wonder woman?"
-"I am at Buffalo Wild Wings, still looking for the next Miss X Canseco."
-"If u can't have the one u love, love the one ur with."
-"If I had a child with Lady Gaga, what would he or she be called?"
-"I wish Lady Gaga would marry me. :D"
-"I want to get married and settle down, any crazy takers . . . u must be Christian."
-"Converting Canseco, what a show. Can any woman convert the most infamous athlete ever? Or will I take u on a hell ride? Can you tame a 6'4" 250-pound beast?"
-"I am looking for an exorcism from a Christian girl, can u handle it? Come into the dark side, I will be waiting for u."
-"I'm in Yuma, Arizona . . . Lady Gaga, come to Yuma, Arizona."
Jose's infatuation with Lady Gaga has been an ongoing feature on his Twitter feed. Last week, he Tweeted, "I love Lady Gaga. Wish I could meet her. I'd marry her in a second. Lady Gaga is the truth, get used to it. If Lady Gaga did decide to shack up with Jose, she'd once again be copying something Madonna did 20 years ago. Madonna dated him between his two marriages.
Congratulations to Tony Romo and Candice Crawford. They got married in Dallas on Saturday. Candice is the sister of "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford. Among the 600 or so guests were past and present Cowboys Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach, Dez Bryant and Miles Austin. Candice's brother was there, too, but there's no word on any other celebrities.
Niecy Nash got married Saturday in Malibu. Her new husband is an electrical engineer by the name of Jay Tucker. Niecy's wedding party included actresses Holly Robinson-Peete, Wendy Raquel Robinson, and Sheryl Lee Ralph, who was matron of honor. Also on hand were Niecy's fellow "Dancing with the Stars" contestants Evan Lysacek and Erin Andrews, plus her "Reno 911" co-stars.
Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight met on the set of VH1's "The Surreal Life" in 2004. Nobody expected it to last, and it didn't. But it lasted a lot longer than anyone predicted. Adrianne and Christopher announced over the weekend that they're separating after five years of marriage. And seven years as a couple. They made the announcement Sunday, which was their 5th anniversary. I forgot how big their age difference was. Adrianne is 28, Christopher is 53.
The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services just finished an investigation of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. The investigation was launched after someone anonymously complained that Mariah was drinking Guinness beer at the hospital after giving birth to her twins. She was trying to breastfeed them at the hospital. Well, the DCFS interviewed Mariah yesterday and she admitted to drinking the beer. But she said she was just following the advice of a hospital staffer who told her dark beer would assist the lactation process. I've had nurses and lactation consultants tell me the same thing. In any case, they let her off the hook.
For whatever reason, everyone seems to want to make 17-year-old Scotty McCreery and 16-year-old Lauren Alaina a couple. Perhaps that's because they were "American Idol's" youngest final two ever, they were both country singers from the South, and they definitely seemed to have a little "chemistry." Lauren even kissed Scotty at the finale. But they insist they're just friends. When asked if the kisses meant they were dating, Scotty said, "Oh, no. We've been getting that question a lot today. It's more like the brother-sister thing. She told me before the show that she was gonna do that, kind of like a joke. She's a character. But she's lovely, we're really close friends." In another interview, Scotty said, "Every day's been a special moment with Lauren. We've been together a whole lot. We talk about a lot of things. We've had a lot of special moments, but there's no romance." As for Lauren, she said, "I gave him a kiss, yes. I love Scotty, he's my best friend, one of my best."
And now, your obligitory die-hard Scotty McCreery fan. She even gives props to AT&T. Atta girl!
Be careful! According to Carrie Underwood, who would NOT reveal who she voted for, if you dial the wrong number to vote for your favorite "American Idol"Â contestant, you'll accidentally call an erotic hotline. Oooops!! Fast forward to 1:09 left in the video to see her comments.
Lil Wayne has a new girlfriend and maybe even a new fiance in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! The new lady friend is an Italian girl named Dhea from Scottsdale, AZ that used to be a waitress. I say "used to" because she's allegedly quit to tour the country at Weezy's side. They were photographed together on the beaches of Miami and even courtside at a recent NBA game. Good luck to the happy couple!
Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphris, are engaged! It actually happened last Wednesday. Kim walked into her bedroom and found Kris down on one knee, with the words "Will You Marry Me?" spelled out in rose petals. She said yes, and he slipped a $2 million, 20.5-carat rock on her finger. It's a 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone flanked by two, 2-carat trapezoids. If you're a girl, you're jealous. If you're a guy, you have no idea what I just said. Kim shows off her ring on the cover of this week's "People". Kim says, "I didn't expect this at all. I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now." I'm not sure if the reality TV cameras were there to record this moment for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" but a source said they were. The new season premieres June 12th.
17-year-old country singer Scotty McCreery beat out 16-year-old country singer Lauren Alaina in the unofficial year of the country singer on "American Idol". Ryan Seacrest said that 122.4 million votes were cast, which is a record and more than 750 million votes were cast throughout the season. After the announcement, Scotty said, "It's been a year since Lauren and I tried out. We've been together since day one and we're going to stay together. Never in my wildest dreams. I've got to thank the Lord first, he got me here."
"X Factor" has already fired Cheryl Cole. She's judged the British "X Factor" alongside Simon Cowell for the past three seasons. Nicole Scherzinger will replace her at the judges' table. Nicole was originally supposed to co-host with Steve Jones. I'm not sure if they will bring someone else on to co-host with him or not yet. Supposedly, the producers were concerned that her accent was too British for Americans to understand. But there was another problem, Cheryl and Paula Abdul did not get along. It was much easier to send Cheryl back to the UK, than it was to separate Simon and Paula again.
Remember VH1's '90s sensation "Pop-Up Video"? Of course you do. It was the music video show where bubbles would pop up with various trivia "nuggets" and sarcastic remarks. It was all over VH1 from 1996 through 2002. Well, it's coming back! VH1 has ordered 60 new episodes, which will start airing sometime this fall. Remember this one from R.E.M.? Classic!
Oh, by the way, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are writing a novel, and you'll never believe what it's about. Their publisher says it takes a look inside, "the lives of three gorgeous celebrity sisters, their complicated relationships with Hollywood, each other, and the glamorous lives they lead in front of the cameras and behind the scenes." Sounds amazing. Can't wait to read it.
"Jersey Shore" stars Ronnie and The Situation allegedly engaged in fisticuffs in Italy on Monday night. It's unclear what happened, butÂ it looks like Ronnie came out on top, because the pictures show The Situation with red marks on his face and Ronnie's knuckles are a little beat up. The fight had something to do with an argument between Ronnie and Sammi, big surprise. That just means there will be even more drama between those two on the upcoming season. For the record, MTV confirmed that something happened to The Situation, but wouldn't elaborate.
Model/actress Estella Warren went totally astronaut crazy Monday during a DUI incident. Estella was driving her Prius through Los Angeles Monday night just before midnight, when she slammed into three parked cars and tried to flee the scene. Somebody called the cops and they showed up pretty quickly, and that's when Estella kicked one of the officers. Once they got her under control they gave her a field sobriety test, which she failed. So they hauled her in. But while she was being booked, she slipped her skinny wrists out of her handcuffs and took off out the back door of the station. She didn't get too far. Estella was hit with four charges: DUI, assault, hit and run and felony escape. Bail was set at $100,000. A law enforcement source says, "She was really hammered."
Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers is your "Dancing with the Stars" season 12 champion. He and partner Kym Johnson took the Mirrorball Trophy from Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. What? That means the girl I picked from the beginning came in third place? Yes, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas were eliminated first last night. This is Kym's second championship. She also won season nine with Donny Osmond.
Chelsea HandlerÂ a shocking admission to the "New York Times" in a new interview. She had an abortion at 16. She said reality shows like "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom" make teen girls think it's okay. She said it's not okay to reward teen pregnancy.
Talk about a backfire! Amazon.com had a special one-day promotion yesterday where you could download Lady Gaga's new album "Born This Way" for 99 cents. Yes, the full album, all 14 tracks. This was for the download only. The CD version was going for $7.99. (For what it's worth, iTunes has the album set at $11.99, or $15.99 for the deluxe edition.) Not surprisingly, Amazon was slammed with traffic, and some people were having trouble getting their download. But Amazon is making good on their offer. A note on the site said: "We're experiencing high volume and downloads are delayed. If you order today, you will get the deal. Thanks for your patience." I wonder how the "delay" lasted, do they have their downloads yet?

Beyonce - Till The End Of Timeby AdwiinMusicDotCom
The remaining members of Cali Swag District recorded a tribute for M-Bone, who was shot and killed last week. The track is called "How to Do That" and it includes the lyrics:
Show these cats how to do that / cats how to do that, cats how do that
Show these cats how to do that / cats how to do that, cats how do that
A (N-word) did you wrong
On your way to get a blunt, you shoulda put it in a bong
M-Bone lives through me, Smoove, and Yung
So when we all turnt up, he still having fun.
I love you like no other
A part of Cali Swag, and there will be no other
We came from the gutter and we made it to the top
The Dougie was the dance, so we thought we'd make it pop.
I shared a tear for my brother. Bone, rest in peace.
If Bone wasn't going to the club, then we all stayed
The life of the party, everybody knew that."
You can listen to it, HERE.
The top 11 "American Idol" finalists will earn some good money on this summer's "Idols Live! Tour." The dates stretch from July 6th through September 10th. The finalists are each pulling down $1,000 per show, and they'll also be given $50 in spending money on their off-days. There are 47 dates on the tour and 20 off-days so they're making around $48,000 each. Obviously, the finalists' travel expenses will also be covered. They're "guaranteed to stay in 'Marriott / Hyatt style' hotel accommodations while on the road and will fly coach between tour stops." That's not bad for just over two months worth of work.
Katy Perry tried to bring husband Russell Brand with her when her tour hit Japan the other day, but they wouldn't let him into the country because he has a criminal record. She Tweeted, "My husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place. #tokyodreamcrushed." Then she added, "It was for priors from over 10 years ago!" Russell was arrested numerous times back in the day for such offenses as drug possession and public indecency. He's sober now. Russell actually took a photo of himself while in custody, before they sent him home and he posted it on Twitter along with the caption, "Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."
Diddy has gone by a ton of names Sean Combs, Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy and Sean John and my favorite (the one I personally gave him) Puff Diddly Pooh. But now he's changing his name again. He now wants to be known by the name Swag. At least for this week. Swag explained, "I decided I'm going to change my name for a week in honor of my comeback. For a week, this week only, call me by my new name, Swag. My new name is Swag."

In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, a supposed topless photo of Cassie hit the web yesterday. Conveniently, her head isn't visible in the pic, so there's no way to tell if it's real. One thing we do know is that the chick in the photo has her belly button and both her nipples pierced. So if Cassie's got that going on, then maybe it is her.
I got my hands on the rider for Katy Perry's current tour. A rider just specifies what the artists want backstage. Anyhoo, among other things, Katy details exactly what kind of furniture and appliances she wants in her dressing room along with her preferred color and floral schemes. In fact, Katy gets specific about the flowers. Katy wants, "White and purple hydrangeas, pink and white roses and peonies." If that isn't possible, Katy says she'll settle for a "selection of seasonal white flowers to include white orchids." However, she gets pretty specific when she warns, "ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS." That is not only in all caps, it's also underlined. I have no idea what her beef is with carnations, but all that makes me believe some loser ex-boyfriend gave her carnations for Valentine's Day in 9th grade and she holds a grudge. The rider also doles out some rules for the chauffeurs, who aren't allowed to, "start a conversation with" her. And her drivers shouldn't stare at her through the rear-view mirror or ask her for autographs or pictures.
For weeks now, America hasn't been sure whether or not to eliminate Haley Reinhart. Well this week, they finally pulled the trigger. That means Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina will compete in the "American Idol" finale next week. For what it's worth, 95 million votes were cast.
Do you remember Chris Medina? His story had you bawling your eyes out in the early audition weeks. His finace Juliana was in a car accident and ended up with severe brain damage leaving her in a wheel chair. Chris became her caretaker and almost made it to the top 13. He told his fans on Twitter that he was not invited to the "American Idol" finale. He asked for tickets and they declined. He said there's no hard feelings and he doesn't feel snubbed. Well I'm salty about it! The producers exploited the heck out of their story. Shame on you, bad decision. I'm sure they'll extend the invite now as it's become national news.
Ke$ha and T-Pain may be the music industry's new "it" couple, judging by the Twit pic I just posted below. Theyâre holding a giant stack of cash and a bottle of Hennessey. The two have expressed their infatuation with one another. He Tweeted, "Last night I found out I'm in love wit @keshasuxx," and she Tweeted back, "Um. F*****g love u @TPAIN. U get me. Come find me," Then T-Pain made this public announcement: "Ladies and gentlemen I've upgraded from loyal stalker. Get ready for K-Pain @tpain and @keshasuxx," and posted the picture. But there is just one problem. T-Pain is married!! He has been married since 2003 and says he's not having relations Kesha. He Tweeted, "I'm not saying Ke$ha and I had sex or anything I'm just sayin I love that '[eff] everybody else' attitude. She dresses how she wants, she performs the way she wants, she does her and at the same time she throwing up a big a** middle finger to all those people that just dissed her when I said I love her."
Â Â Ke$ha has asked her fans to send her their teeth so she can make a necklace. You might remember when we told you that a fan sent her a tooth, well that's what gave her the idea. She has posted an address on Twitter. Here's where it gets even grosser than gross, Ke$haâs mom saved her placenta after birth and made it into a necklace to channel her âpsychic abilities.â Ewww!!! No wonder Ke$ha is so bizzare.

PS...mark it down, her new cd "4" will be out on June 28.
Lady Gaga is officially more powerful than Oprah Winfrey. At least that's what "Forbes" magazine says in its annual Celebrity 100 power list. While Oprah made more money over the past year ($290 million to $90 million) the Celebrity 100 list looks at other factors as well, like a star's overall influence and media exposure. And Gaga pretty much owns it there. She's got more than 10 million Twitter followers and 32 million Facebook fans and she sold 1 million digital downloads of her single "Born This Way" in just five days. So Oprah fell to second, and she was followed by the guy who seems to be constantly competing with Gaga in terms of media exposure: Justin Bieber. Dude made $53 million over the past year, if you can believe that. He also holds a YouTube record: More than 500 million people have watched his "Baby" video. Here's the top ten on the Celebrity 100:
1.) Lady Gaga
2.) Oprah Winfrey
3.) Justin Bieber
5.) Elton John
6.) Tiger Woods
7.) Taylor Swift
8.) Bon Jovi
9.) Simon Cowell
10.) LeBron James
New details from yesterday regarding M-Bone's death surfaced this morning. He may have been targeted after a Twitter war over a girl.Â The Cali Swag District memberÂ was shot twice in the head while he sat in a car outside a liquor store. He later died in an Inglewood, California hospital. M-Boneâs friends have been telling investigators that he started seeing a girl after he returned to Los Angeles from his tour. M-Boneâs friends say a guy who lived in the womanâs building didnât like the relationship, and allegedly began threatening M-Bone via Twitter. The black car in which M-Bone was shot Sunday night is registered to the woman. Police are trying to figure out why M-Bone was driving the womanâs car and whether the cyber war is in any way related to the shooting. Witnesses claim the shooter fired, left, then pulled a U-turn and came back around, possibly to see if he hit his target. The investigation will continue.

UPDATE: M-Bone from Cali Swag District was fatally shot last night. It has been confirmed. He was the victim of a drive-by shooting, and it appears to be a random act of violence according to law enforcement. M-Bone (Montae Talbert) was next to his car in front of an Inglewood, CA liquor store at 11:32pm Sunday when shots rang out. The shooter was driving down La Brea Avenue alone in his car when he fired. Inglewood detectives are investigating, but right now it looks like M-Bone was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. M-Bone was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Â BREAKING NEWS: Reports are swirling that 22 year-old Cali Swag District member M-Bone was shot and killed. The details surrounding M-boneâs death are unclear as of now. Some reports say he was killed in front of a liquor store in L.A. but others say he may have been shot inside a recording studio. AÂ Twitter update fromÂ Smooth from CSD came in around 3am this morning: "Ma life changed drastically in the blink of an eye rip mbone" We've heard nothing official from their record label. We'll keep you posted.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, 14-year-old Rebecca Black, the singer of the song of 2011, "Friday" is pregnant. Obviously, she's not. Yesterday she Tweeted, "I thought it was May 15th...not April Fool's Day. I'm absolutely NOT pregnant." Okay, good, we can put that to rest. Shweew!
Â Â Ashton Kutcher has replaced Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men". Production begins this summer, and the show will be back on the air in the fall. Not surprisingly, Charlie's first reaction wasn't entirely positive. On Friday, he Tweeted, "Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!! Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there." When he said, "Planet Chuck," that's a reference to Charlie's sworn enemy, "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre. But later in the day, Charlie Tweeted, "#Winning Congrats to the cast and crew. My best to @aplusk!! The show must go on. You got the right guy! c." And Ashton replied, "#2.5 @charliesheen Thanks man. Always been a fan, always will be! BTW you were 'born big.'" In a statement Friday, Ashton also made sure to pay respects to Charlie Sheen. He said, "I can't wait to get to work with this ridiculously talented 2.5 team. I can't replace Charlie Sheen but I'm going to work my ass off to entertain the hell out of people!" Ashton will not take over the role of Charlie Harper, he will be a new character and it will hit CBS this fall.
Â Rihanna is now following Chris Brown on Twitter. On Saturday, a 14-year-old girl who follows Rihanna on Twitter noticed this, and asked Rihanna if she was getting back together with him. She said, "I never thought you would go back to him! You better not, it's your life but you do have (people) that look up to you. e.g. young girls." Rihanna replied, again, to a 14 year-old, "Its [effin] twitter, not the alter! Calm down." The fan then apologized, which prompted Rihanna to apologize to her. She said, "Babygirl I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hurt or offend u! Just needed to make it clear. xoxo." There's no word from Chris Brown on any of this, although it should be noted that he's following Rihanna, too.
Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart and Scotty McCreery got to head back to their hometowns for a little hero's return and they'll play that footage back on "American Idol" this week. We found out that Josh Turner showed up on stage and scared the crap out of Scotty. How awesome! This footage will likely air on Wednesday night's episode of "Idol". Josh shows up at about 1:42.
Ashton Kutcher is putting the finishing touches on a deal to replace Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men". There's no word how much he'll make, but a source says it's a, "huge payday." How will Charlie's exit and Ashton's entrance be explained? The source says, "It's really funny. People are going to love it." The source adds that Chuck Lorre is, "really happy." Ashton didn't comment directly on this, but he seemed to confirm the news last night when he Tweeted, "What's the square root of 6.25?" The answer? It's 2.5, as in Two and a Half. Men.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli have split up again and this time it's because Leo doesn't want to be tied down. A source says, "Leo was getting a lot of pressure from friends, family, and Bar to take the next step in their relationship and get married. He wasn't ready for that." But another source says Bar didn't want to get married either, "Neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions."
It was exactly a month ago that Hayden Panettiere was on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" talking about how she and her much-taller boyfriend, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, are able to make sex work. But yesterday, they announced that they've broken up. Hayden says, "Even though we've decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends." Klitschko addd, "We had a great time together, but it's not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents."
Matthew Perry is heading back to rehab. This will be his third trip to rehab, following stints in 1997 and 2001. He's had trouble in the past with alcohol and prescription meds. In 2000, he had a bout of pancreatitis, which was reportedly brought on by his substance abuse. Perry issued a statement saying, "I'm making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web." Love it! Sources say Matthew Perry did not suffer a relapse. It's not clear why he felt the need to bone up on his sobriety.
72 million "American Idol" voters decided to save both the girls, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart leaving Scotty McCreery and James Durbin in the bottom two. Fans were shocked to see James get voted off missing out on the top three.
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith will be the guests on the final episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on May 25th. Speculation about who will appear on the last episode has been building as Oprah ends her 25-year run. Guesses have included Oprahâs longtime love Stedman Graham, Tom Cruise, Dr. Phil McGraw, Jennifer Aniston and Gabrielle Giffords. Itâs not clear how many guests will appear on the final show. And thereâs no word on whether the Smithsâ famous kids Jaden and Willow will join their parents on the couch. The last week of the show also will feature a two-episode rematch between Oprah and James Frey, the controversial writer of "A Million Little Pieces," which is being teased as "the biggest controversy in Oprah show history."
Hugh Grant has been tossed into negotiations with the producers of "Two And A Half Men." The fate of the show will be known next week. CBS presents its fall lineup to advertisers during upfronts on May 18. Whoever is picked, the salary wonât be $1 millionÂ per episode. I've actually heard that late last night Hugh backed out of negotiations. I don't think it's gonna make it to next season, do you?
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood has lost primary custody of her 2-year-old daughter, Leah. Child Protective Services called an emergency hearing on Wednesday in Indiana. Primary custody was awarded to Portwood's baby daddy, Gary Shirley. Amber will get visits.
"OK!" magazine is running a big cover story this week about Katie Holmes that says, "It's Official: 'Yes, I'm Pregnant'." There's only one problem with the story, and I'm betting you can guess what it is: Katie's not pregnant. Her rep even told "OK!" that when the magazine asked him to comment on the story. But they ran with it anyway. What do you think? Is she lying?
Soulja Boy announced that he would be remaking the 1992 film "Juice" and playing Bishop â the role that turned Tupac Shakur into a movie star. On Wednesday, Soulja Boy told Sway from MTV News that he was also asked to audition for the role of Shakur in the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed Tupac biopic. "I got an email from William Morris Agency â that's my agency that I'm with â they reached out to me to play the part. I'm just still thinking about it right now," Soulja told Sway. "Even with the whole 'Juice' movie, I'm playing a part that Tupac played, but I'm not actually playin' 'Pac. When it comes to this, I'm actually gonna be playin' 'Pac, so I'm really still just thinkin' about it. But I'm just honored that they would reach out to me and ask me anyway." Soulja said he has already wrapped shooting, and fans will be able to see the film later this year.
Mike Epps was served with a lawsuit while onstage doing standup in Texas recently. Right in the middle of his set, a woman walked up and threw the papers on the stage. And Mike let her have it. He said, "White [B-word] just threw some papers up on the mother[effing] stage. This is from when I whooped that [N-word's] ass in Detroit." Then he went back after the server, saying, "[B-word], I don't give a [eff]" Here is the video. WARNING!!! This thing is loaded with poorly bleeped profanity. Several B-words and at least one F-bomb were missed in the edit. The back story is that Epps has been accused of attacking a photographer at a Detroit club last November. It happened during a party for Mike's wife and Mike claimed the photographer was harassing them.
The Situation is making a killing from his "Jersey Shore" fame. It's estimated that he raked in $5 million last year, and he received a huge pay raise since then that should bump his income this year. But apparently, The Situation isn't sending any of that to his folks back home. His father Frank Sorrentino lashed out at him in a couple profanity-laced rants basically for abandoning the family after he got famous, and not appreciating the things he did to help him get his feet on the ground a few years back. The first video, which is titled "[Eff] the Little [Eff]". In a second video, Frank says he got The Situation a construction job, but he ended up enjoying some oral favors from a cougar co-worker. Then, The Situation went after the company for sexual harassment. I'm sure this won't be the last we've heard from Frank.
Last night on "Dancing With The Stars" it was an important elimination as the semi-finalist were determined. Romeo and Ralph Machio were in the bottom two and despite his injury and low scores, Ralph made it to next week. Romeo was eliminated. Side note: I saw his new movie, "Jumping The Broom" yesterday. It was good! Go check it out!
I heard a little rumor...okay it's the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. I'll announce it when we're allowed to, but we think Lil Wayne is extending his I Am Still Music Tour and has added another 41 dates. I'm pretty sure he's coming to Virginia Beach in July. Now, to add to that, it's possible Keri Hilson, Rick Ross, Lloyd and Far East Movement will also perform select dates on the tour. Tickets are supposed to go on sale next weekend.
Â Â "Winning" is the song Charlie Sheen did with Snoop Dogg. It sends proceeds going to Charlie's Torpedos Against Tornados charity.
Bristol Palin is doing a reality show for the BIO channel, which will involve her moving in with 19-year-old Disney Channel star Kyle Massey. Bristol and Kyle became friends while competing on "Dancing with the Stars" together. The show follows Bristol's move from Alaska to L.A., where she'll work "at a small charity." She's bringing her two-year-old son Tripp along. It's unclear what Kyle (or his brother Chad who will be moving in too) will be doing. There's no title yet, but it's expected to premiere later this year.
Pharrell Williams is expanding his focus to include a new TV network aimed at the online generation. Karmaloop TV said Monday that Skateboard P has been named creative director for the network scheduled to launch later this year.

Lady Gaga - "The Edge of Glory"
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, we have a new Hot Couple Alert! It looks like Chris Brownâs ex and Kim Kardashianâs ex are hooking up! Last week Rihanna went on a date with Reggie Bush. Their PR teams hooked them up in the hopes that they'd hit it off and become the new celebrity it couple. And so far so good. The insider said, "Reggie needs to build up his image now that it looks like he's leaving the New Orleans Saints and Rihanna believes in having her relationships help build her image." They also said, "There was definitely physical attraction from both sides."
Yesterday, Fox finally made it official: Paula Abdul will re-team with Simon Cowell on "X Factor". As previously announced, the other two judges' seats will go to L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole. Simon and Paula both released statements. Simon said, "This show would never have been the same without Paula, and I can't believe I am saying this, I have missed her a lot, and I am thrilled she's on the show." Paula said, "I am excited beyond words to be a part of 'X Factor'. I'm also delighted and grateful to be sitting next to Simon again, but you might want to check back with me in a week or two!"
The co-hosts of "X Factor" have been locked in: It's going to be Nicole Scherzinger and some Welsh guy named Steve Jones. We'd heard that former "High School Musical" star Corbin Bleu was in line for the gig, but apparently it came down to Corbin and this Steve Jones guy and they ended up going with Steve. Steve is 34 years old, Nicole is 32. And for what it's worth, Corbin is 22. There's no official word what happened with Corbin, but several sources are reporting that he didn't have the chemistry with Nicole that Steve had. One source reported that Nicole did not want to host with Corbin. "Nicole walked in and saw Corbin and his baby face and asked, 'What are you, 15?' And then she walked out." "X Factor" will premier in September.
Jacob Lusk is supposedly blaming his elimination on Jimmy Iovine. According to one source, Jacob is telling his friends that Jimmy pressured him into making the lousy song choices that got him booted last week. Jacob never wanted to perform the Jordin Sparks /Chris Brown duet, "No Air" on Wednesday's show, but Jimmy pressured him into it. I guess Jacob really wanted to perform the Gnarls Barkley hit, "Crazy," but Iovine was so insistent on "No Air" that he basically "beat it into his brain" until Lusk finally gave in and agreed to perform the song. During the show, Randy Jackson told Jacob, "I donât think thatâs the direction for you. I don't think anybody on this stage should be doing duet songs." Sources connected to the production say that Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe has told every contestant the decision on final song choice is made by the singer and not the mentor.
Everybody is hot for Adele right now, but Adele is hot for Rihanna in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! Adele is straight, but recently said, "If Rihanna wanted me, I'd do it with her. She's hot." She said that something happened when she saw Rihanna on Britain's "X Factor" last year. She says, "She had pinstripe flares on. She whipped them off and there were her stunning thighs. "I said to all my girlfriends:Â 'Are you feeling a bit gay right now?'"
Â Â Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Hines Ward was yanked out of a car at gunpoint Thursday. Hines was a passenger in a friend's car when she was pulled over after police noticed they were in a stolen car. LAPD drew their guns as they exited the car and then handcuffed the two. They were both released when a giant mixup was revealed. His friend had reported her car stolen after an incident involving a valet. She got her car back. However, she failed to notify the police to call off the alert.
Â Â Katie Couric is reportedly close to signing a $20 million deal with ABC that'll give her a daytime talk show and a significant role at ABC News. Here's the part those of us who hated that "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" got cancelled won't like:Â Katie's talk show might bump "General Hospital" off the air completely. Seriously? Save at least one soap, huh ABC? Sheesh!
Jacob Lusk was eliminated on last night's "American Idol" after he unsuccessfully attempted both parts of "No Air," the duet between Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. Lauren Alaina joined Lusk as one of the bottom two. Besides Alaina, the other remaining finalists are James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart.
The twins of Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey finally have names! The girl's name is Monroe, and the boy's is Moroccan Scott. Moroccan is named after the Moroccan Room, which is what Mariah calls the top floor of her Manhattan apartment, because it's Moroccan-themed. That's also where Nick proposed. Scott is Nick's middle name. As for Monroe, she's named after Marilyn Monroe. Mariah has been a fan of hers throughout her life. The baby doesn't have a middle name because Mariah doesn't, either.
Born Mark Sinclair Vincent, your favorite actor Vin Diesel was once a rapper. Back in 1986 at Battery Sound NYC, a young Vin recorded THIS song before he went on to star in the country's number one movie, "Fast Five". I think he made the right choice.
A third spin-off is now in the works for "Jersey Shore". This one stars The Situation. MTV has announced that they've entered a development deal with The Situation, although there aren't any specific details yet. Last month, MTV said Snooki and JWoww would have their own spin-off, "about their life away from" home and Pauly D is getting a show, too.
The producers of "Glee" have announced that they're putting together a 3D concert movie, which will hit theaters on August 12th. The movie, "Glee Live! 3D!" will feature footage from the upcoming "Glee" Live! In Concert! tour. At least for now, it's only scheduled for a limited, two-week run. Maybe you're thinking, why is this happening? Well, aside from the obvious, unspoken objective of making money, "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy says they're doing it because, "We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity." That's me! I'll be there in the theaters in August!
Ricardo Chavira who plays Eva Longoria's husband Carlos on "Desperate Housewives" got a DUI yesterday morning in Los Angeles. Chavira was pulled over at 2:00am for driving erratically, and the cops smelled booze on his breath. He failed field sobriety tests, then refused to take a breathalyzer or blood test, so they hauled him in. He was released on $25,000 bail. Ricardo's wife had to call his father, who just happens to be a judge in the state of Texas.
ABC has just announced that they're developing a celebrity version of the show "Wife Swap" simply called "Celebrity Wife Swap". Unfortunately, that's all we know for now. Obviously, the biggest question is: What kind of celebrity couples are they going to get to do this? Well, we don't know yet, but don't expect anyone significant. In other words, the cast of "Celebrity Wife Swap" will probably be closer to "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here" than "Dancing with the Stars".
Last night on "Dancing With The Stars" it was the end of the road for Kendra Wilkinson. She was joined in the bottom two by Kirstie Alley. Next week, each of the celebrities will perform two dances.

Amber Portwood from âTeen Momâ came home to the words "slut," "hoe," and "fu***râ spray painted on her car in Anderson, IN. Not to mention her home was egged too. Amber called the police and reported the damage. She'd been accused by her neighbor, Jamie Monroe, of stealing her baby daddy, Midas Fields. He is a maintenance worker who has been living with Jamie for the past three years. They share a one-year-old daughter, Jaicee. Amberâs mother, Tonya, said, "Amber is upset at the vandalism. She was forced to call the police, at around 3 a.m., when she came home with her aunt and Midas from a dinner." Her mother said although Amber's neighbor, Midas, has "a crush" on her, she is "still seeing (2 year-old daughterÂ Leah's father)Â Gary Shirley, although they're not officially back together." Go check out the picture of her car HERE.
Â Â Miley Cyrus covered the Nirvana classic "Smells Like Teen Spirit" during her show in Ecuador over the weekend. Do you think she rocks out or is Kurt Cobain shaking his head in his grave?
Â Â Jennifer Lopez's video for "I'm Into You" premiered on the "Today" show yesterday. The song, which features Lil Wayne, is off her new album, "Love?", which is out today!
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have a tradition of celebrating their anniversary by renewing their vows. Saturday was their third anniversary, but Mariah was kind of busy giving birth to twins. So they made up for it by re-swapping vows on Sunday with Reverend Al Sharpton presiding. On Sunday, Sharpton Tweeted, "I am just leaving Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. She had twins yesterday on their 3rd anniversary. I had prayer with them and the babies. I also conducted the renewal of their vows and the blessing of the newborn twins. Mariah looks great, and the babies are beautiful." And Nick Tweeted, "Yep, we just had a wedding in the hospital. Thank you to @TheRevAl who came all the way to the hospital to renew me and my wife's vows and pray with our children." This is great and all, but what are "dem babies" names already!?
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed their twins on Saturday which also happened to be their third wedding anniversary. There's no word on the kids' names yet. They had a girl and then the boy followed. They both weighed just over five pounds. Asked if the timing was intentional, Mariah's rep said, "No, not even Mariah could plan that." Hours after the birth, Nick Tweeted, "My wife just gave me the most incredible anniversary gift ever in life! I won't ever be able to top this!" Mariah gave birth at 12:07pm via C-section at a hospital in Los Angeles. Mariah's rep said, "Nick was very nervous and Mariah was completely calm. Mariah thought it was another soft labor and Nick was driving her to the hospital and she was very calm and the music was blasting. When they walked into the hospital, Nick was going the wrong way and the nurse redirected them to go the maternity ward, and I said to her, 'that's right out of "I Love Lucy",' and she laughed."
Â Charlie Sheen wrote a nasty letter to "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre that'll pretty much guarantee he never gets back on the show. Charlie lashed out at Chuck for hatching a plan to continue the show next season without him. He said, "Good luck Chuck. My fans may tune in for a minute but at the end of the day, no one cares about your feeble show without me. Shame on you. Not even a phone call to the man that put you on the map. The man that put 500 million dollars in your pocket. You were on your way out of Warner Brothers with a buy out and a cup of cold coffee in your shaky and clammy hands. And then I walked into your office. And you created a show based on my awesome life. I busted my ass for 8 years to support your vision. Your dream. In turn, it is my nightmare. You sad silly fool. [A-hole wussy] loser. Put on the gloves you low rent, nut-less sociopath. I'll beat your chicken [crap] soul in a court room into a state of gratitude. A state of surrender. Wow, I'm sure your children are so proud of you. You can teach 'em how to be a stupid [B-word]. A narcissist. A coward. A loser. A spineless rat. The message is crystal clear; NO CHARLIE SHEEN. NO SHOW. You've been warned. Reap the whirl-wind you cockroach, reap it." Think he's still got a chance?? Ha!!
What will the next cast member of "Glee" look like? Well, he or she looks a little bit like you or me, actually. Right now, there are 12 possibilities of who might be Gleeâs newest addition, and âEntertainment Weeklyâ has the exclusive first look at the Glee wannabes who are hoping to share the screen with Kurt, Rachel andÂ Finn in season 3. Twelve contestants are competing in Oxygenâs upcoming reality series âThe Glee Project,â which launches June 12th and will select one of the 12 for a seven-episode arc on the show next season. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has said that if a guy is chosen, the role will likely be a love interest for diva character Mercedes (Amber Riley). Of course, a series of competitions stand in the way before the final decision will be made. Over 10 episodes, the contestants will be cut down through a series of âhomework assignmentsâ orchestrated by the Glee creators that will assess their singing, dancing, and acting. âUltimately, this competition is about inspiring the creators of Glee to write a role for you,â explains exec producer Shauna Minoprio. âThatâs never been done before. Thatâs what makes this whole thing so intriguing. Itâs that magical Glee factor, that youâve got to want them to pick you and write a seven-episode character role for you. The process of how that comes about is absolutely fascinating.â
The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton was an increibly formal event. But totally opposite of the party that went down at the reception. The night began with Prince Harry as the MC. He gave a very heartfelt speech to brother William and new sister-in-law Kate. He told Will, "Our mother would be so very proud of you." Although, not to be too serious, Harry made sure to keep things light as he made his speech while standing on top of a table, wearing a fez on his head. He also he made jokes about William's balding hair and referred to the couple as "The Dude and Duchess of Cambridge". He also told Kate he felt sorry for her that she didn't marry the good looking brother, referring to himself. He then unbuttoned his shirt, danced on windowsills and stage-dived into the crowd! Despite Facebook efforts to hook Prince Harry up with Kateâs sister Pippa (sheâs the one that carried the wedding gown train) throughout the night, party-goers said that Harry and on-and-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy were the "life and soul" of the bash. In fact, Harry apparently wrapped his arm around her and whispered "you're next" in her ear. Later on the evening, Kate's dad, Michael Middleton, gave a speech to the crowd and told the story how he knew William had a crush on his daughter. He said: "I knew things were getting serious when I found a helicopter in my garden. I thought, 'gosh, he must like my daughter.' I did wonder how William was going to top this if they every got engaged. I just thought, what will he do? You can't get much better than that and we are certainly not used to princes landing their helicopters in the garden." The reception had a nightclub feel with a DJ, glitter ball, and UV lighting. The room was filled with popcorn machines and snacks like ice cream and bacon butties and cocktails called Crack Babies. Singer Ellie Goulding performed Elton John's "Your Song" while William and Kate had their first dance. William was said to be very shy during the dance, but later loosened up when he and Kate performed a "hilarious version" Grease's "You're The One That I Want", which "brought the house down."A wedding guest described the dance: "They stood holding hands in the middle of the dance floor grinning, then suddenly the opening bars of the song came booming out. The reaction was brilliant. Everyone started clapping to the music. Wills and Kate began dancing around, pointing at each other and mouthing the words. It was hilarious." Later, William gave a speech, describing his bride as his "rock" and telling her how beautiful she was before guests started leaving at around 4 am. The whole night sounded absolutely magical and a complete 180 from the morning's proper and formal wedding ceremony.
Akon was opening up for Usher on his "OMG Tour" down in FloridaÂ Wednesday night when he stunned the audience by peeling off his jacket, then his white jeans, then his t-shirt. He just stood there smiling in front of the shocked crowd in his boxer briefs and socks before he headed backstage to get dressed.
Katy Perry is suing an Australian tabloid called "NW" for claiming that she cheated on husband Russell Brand with a music producer. The tabloid said Katy messed around with producer Benny Blanco while he mixed "California Gurls". One of the problems with the story, however, is that Benny didn't produce "California Gurls". In her lawsuit, Katy says she has been, "gravely injured in her reputation and feelings and has suffered distress, embarrassment and humiliation" as a result of the article. There's no word how much she's asking for.
Chuck Lorre has reportedly come up with a plan to reboot "Two and a Half Men". It involves beefing up Jon Cryer's role and adding another actor to replace Charlie Sheen. Officially, there's no word who they might choose, but three rumored possibilities are Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven and Bob Saget. Here's the thing, though: There's no guarantee the show will return for a 9th season. According to the one source, "Two and a Half Men" will, "almost certainly return." But other sources say there's only a 50-50 chance. Either way, we'll have the answer by later this month, when CBS announces its schedule for next season.
This summer's "American Idols Live!" tour itinerary been revealed. There will be 45 shows running from July through September. They will hit Richmond on August 20th. Usually, the Top 10 contestants participate in the tour. But this year, they made it the Top 11 after the judges used their "save" early on Casey Abrams. Aside from him, the touring Idols will be: Haley Reinhart, Jacob Lusk, James Durbin, Lauren Alaina, Naima Adedapo, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Scotty McCreery, Stefano Langone and Thia Megia. For whatever reason, there was no Bottom Three last night. Ryan Seacrest just revealed the "safe" contestants one by one until only Casey was left. Goodbye Casey Abrams.
Congratulations to Chris Brown and his model girlfriend Karrauche Tran. In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, one of Kaeâs girlfriends has announced that Chris proposed to Karrauche over the weekend and she said yes! The source said, "Chris asked her to marry her but it was very spur of the moment. It was over the phone and he doesn't even have a ring for her yet. But she said yes." They say that the two are trying to keep everything on the hush-hush for now until after Chris returns from touring.
Â Â Kate Hudson and her baby-daddy, Matt Bellamy of Muse, got engaged last week. During an interview on the "Today" show yesterday, Matt Lauer noticed a rock on Kate's finger. (Skip to 2:37) And she told him, "I'm engaged! It just happened a week ago. I'm so glad you noticed. I haven't really announced it. I was waiting for someone to notice." She didn't say how Matt proposed, but she said, "It was very sweet. It was very romantic." Matt and Kate have been dating for about a year, and are expecting a child in the next few months. Matt will be Kate's second husband. She was married to Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson from 2000 to 2007. They have a 7-year-old son named Ryder.
Angelina Pivarnic from the first two seasons of "Jersey Shore" is pregnant or at least that's what she's telling anyone who will listen.Â One site claims she still hasn't received "confirmation from a doctor" yet. Apparently, Angelina doesn't think it's necessary to actually get confirmation before she tells everyone. But that's not all. She may also be single. Angelina and her boyfriend David Kovaks got engaged back in February, but now there's a rumor that David is breaking it off. Good timing, Dave. Angelina has yet to comment on that.
Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber are doing a movie together. Mark says, "We're putting it together. Yeah, we're doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea, and we talked to him about doing it and he loved the idea. "He sent me a video of himself and yeah, I think he's really talented." That's all we know about it at this time.
In her interview with Jay Leno, Lindsay Lohan said that it was, "shocking" to be sentenced to jail and community service and that she feels, "kind of numb." But she really didn't try to dodge the blame. She said, "I think that when, you know, being young and being in the position I was in, you don't really take the time to appreciate what you have and it's all kind of a whirlwind, and people make decisions for you. But I'm not a kid anymore. I'm 24. I've made a lot of mistakes. I recognize that, but I'm in the clear now and I feel that as long as I stay focused, then I will achieve what I want to achieve." By the way, the crowd gave Lindsay a standing ovation when she walked onstage. Sources say Leno got Lindsay's first interview because, "He has been nothing but good to her and her family over the years, and has always been protective of her."
New Kids on the Block stud Donnie Wahlberg came to the aid of a very sick fan named Bobbette Miller, who was in desperate need of a kidney. Back in December, one of Bobbette's friends Tweeted about her condition, and Donnie saw it. He re-Tweeted the friend's message, and appealed to his 183,000-plus followers asking them for help. This prompted a flurry of people being tested and six people were deemed matches for Bobbette. One of them, whose identity was not released, will be donating their kidney to her in June. Donnie says, "It's a testament to the value of Twitter when used for more than telling people what one is eating for dinner or using it to sell products."
SPOILER ALERT: Matthew Morrison aka Mr. Shue spilled some details on an upcoming episode of "Glee" in which a character is going to be biting the big one. He explains, "Somebody's dying. Obviously I'm not going to tell you who it is, but it's no-one that you would probably expect. The episode right before the finale (which isÂ MayÂ 24th) Â is called 'Funeral'. We were actually at a funeral home yesterday, shooting all day. It was a very taxing day." It's gotta be a pretty significant character if the entire episode after it is focused on the funeral! Now in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Â some are saying it could be Puck because he was the only one they didnât see in pictures from the set that day. Others speculate it could be Terri (Willâs ex-wife) or Emmaâs ex-husband, Carl (played by John Stamos) or even the big bad bully, Dave Karofsky.
Chris Jericho was eliminated from "Dancing With The Stars" just one night after landing in last place. He and his dance partner, Cheryl Burke, collected 22 points out of 30 on Monday for a tango that one judge described as "cold, uneventful and a bit lumpy." He was joined in the bottom two with Ralph Machio.
Game has posted a video of his four-year-old son King Justice performing Justin Bieber's songs "Never Say Never" and "Baby". And he belts 'em out. In the middle of his set, King confidently says, "I'm the Game's son and I do everything that I want to do." And something about playing the video games that his dad bought him. It's pretty cute, check it out!
Former "Laguna Beach" star Kristen Cavallari and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler got engaged over the weekend during a trip to Mexico. They've been dating since last fall. Congratulations!!
Nicolas Cage may be in trouble for more than just causing a scene in New Orleans a few weeks ago. Now he might have Child Protective Services on his case. It turns out that sometime before Cage was arrested for public drunkenness and battery against his wife Alice, Cage also dropped his 5-year-old son Kal-El, causing the boy to scrape his knee. According to the newly-released police report on Cage's arrest, Cage and Alice had gone to pick the kid up from a friend's house, and Cage, "fell while holding their son. "The fall caused the 5-year-old to suffer a minor abrasion to his left knee." A witness who saw it happen said that Cage actually, "pulled the male child to the ground by his hand." A child abuse detective was called to check things out and he didn't file any charges. But Child Services is reportedly looking into the case.
Simon Cowell has officially picked Paula Abdul to be a judge when "X-Factor" premiers in the United States in September. She has to sign the contract. L.A. Reid and Cheryl Cole will also be on the judging panel. Cheryl is currently finalizing her contract.
Last week, we talked about the fact that Lindsay Lohan could be jailed for violating her DUI probation, even though she hasn't actually been convicted of stealing that necklace. And on Friday, that happened. Lindsay was sentenced to 120 days behind bars and 480 hours of community service while at the same time, her theft charge for allegedly stealing the necklace was downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor. In reducing the charge, Judge Stephanie Sautner explained that it's common procedure for nonviolent defendants, even in cases more serious than Lindsay's. But it sounds like the judge does think Lindsay stole the necklace. She said, "Would a person with any brains walk out with a necklace with security cameras on? Maybe it's brazenness, stupidity, I don't know what. Perhaps it was a desire to hide in plain sight. I see her intent to steal and I see a level of brazenness. It was like, 'Let me see what I can get away with.'" She added, "She thumbs her nose at the court. She walks into court with FU on her fingernails. I don't know what that's all about." The misdemeanor charge still carries a possible one-year prison sentence. Lindsay was booked at around 5:30 P.M., then out on $75,000 bail by 9:21 P.M. She'll be allowed to remain free while she appeals her jail time. The community service, however, is non-negotiable. Judge Sautner ordered Lindsay to do most of those hours at the Downtown Women's Center so she can, "see how truly needy women have to live and that might change her." Meanwhile, her theft trial is set to begin on June 3rd.
Â Â Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha have teamed up to record a remix of Britney's single, "Till the World Ends". It leaked over the weekend and here ya go!
Britney Spears' surprise appearance caused chaos at Nicki Minaj's after party. Nicki took to the stage for an afterparty at The Factory venue in West Hollywood Friday night following her performance with Lil Wayne at theÂ Staples Center. Her soon-to-be-touring partner BritneyÂ showed up at the event and joinedÂ Nicki on stage, but some fans had to be carried out by security guards. "It was complete pandemonium. Six people were carried out after hyperventilating. They literally fainted when Britney walked onto the stage where Nicki was hanging," said a source. "People were crowd surfing to get to the stage. Screams were so loud for Nicki and Brit you couldn't hear the music. Bouncers couldn't hold the crowd back." Spears later told fans about her night out with Minaj in a post on her Twitter page, writing, "Hanging with my girl Nicki Minaj at her after party at The Factory. Love you girl. - Britney." The two new friends have teamed up in the studio to record a remix ofÂ "Till The World Ends". The track also features Ke$ha, who co-wrote the song. That's above in case you missed it.
Were you at the Puff Diddly Pooh concert last night at the Norva? I guess he skipped out on his meet and greet, even after you guys waiting over two and a half hours for him. I am so so so sorry!! If you know what really happened or were there, please post and let us know what happened. What a total letdown! How did he do on stage otherwise?
For whatever reason, Filipino boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao is releasing a single. Sadly, it won't be an original composition. Manny has recorded a cover of "Sometimes When We Touch", the suggestively-titled single that was originally recorded by Dan Hill in 1978. Dan even helped Pacquiao record the song. He says, "I was immediately drawn by the honesty and the gentleness of his performance. It was like 'wow'." A bunch of other artists have already covered the song, including Tina Turner, Tammy Wynette, Rod Stewart, Barry Manilow and Engelbert Humperdinck. Pacquiao's version comes out next Thursday. It'll premiere on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", which is where Pacquiao first performed the song back in November of last year. Here's that video:
"American Idol" dumped Stefano Langone last night. No one was surprised. Stefano has been in the Bottom Three for four of the past five weeks. If anything, it's somewhat interesting that the "Idol" voters, which are apparently all women, were willing to part with a guy for the second straight week. That hasn't exactly been their M.O. Jacob Lusk and Haley Reinhart were also in the Bottom Three.
Jennifer Lopez has no plans to let this be the last of her career achievments as an "American Idol" judge. Besides working on her album "Love?", Entertainment Weekly has reported that Jennifer Lopez is working with Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment for a new show idea. Jennifer, Simon and her husband Marc Anthony are shopping around a project that would see the couple touring Latin America for undiscovered talent. The project, tentatively called "Que Viva" is still in it's infant stages and there's no word on if the show will be developed or how this impacts Jennifer Lopez's stay on Idol. She better not leave - not yet and not for that!
Angelina Jolie has reportedly snagged a $10 million endorsement deal with Louis Vuitton. It's a print-only campaign that's expected to launch globally this summer. If that number is correct, this is probably the most lucrative endorsement deal of her career. I don't really mind when Angelina and Brad Pitt make boatloads of money for doing frivolous things, I suppose because they put a lot of time and money back into helping other people. And as you all pointed out this morning, some of the athletes and their endorsements are $90-100 million! Sheesh!
At a show in Phoenix, Nicki Minaj brought NBA point guard Steve Nash from the "Suns" up on stage for a little booty treat. Nice work!
In today's Hot Couple Alert, witnesses say Emma Roberts and "Glee" star Chord Overstreet were making out in front of everyone at the Coachella music festival over the weekend. A source said, "They couldn't keep their hands off each other!" After a late-night party, they were even seen heading off toward his hotel room. But maybe Chord got everything he wanted that night, because the next day at the festival, he was giving her a bit of a cold shoulder. A witness says, "She was leaning into him, but he seemed way more interested in his food." Chord, who plays Sam Evans, has been linked to his "Glee" co-star Naya Rivera and Taylor Swift.
Lindsay Lohan is going to do that movie about the Gotti crime family after all. But she won't be playing John Gotti's daughter Victoria. Instead, she'll play John Gotti Jr.'s wife, Kimberly Albanese. Yesterday was kind of a strange day, as far as Lindsay and this movie are concerned. As we heard not long ago, Lindsay was in talks to play Victoria. But Lindsay's people messed up the deal by making ridiculous demands. Early yesterday, producer Marc Fiore announced that he was through trying to negotiate with Lindsay's people and the deal was off. He said, "Talks have stopped and we are done. I will only ride a merry-go-round with my kids." But he added, "Maybe if Lindsay calls me up, we can talk about it." Apparently, that's what happened. Sources say Lindsay called Fiore personally and patched things up, and he gave her the role of Kimberly. Things went so well that Lindsay will do a second movie for Fiore. It's another crime flick called "Mob Street". The Gotti movie is called "Gotti: Three Generations". It stars John Travolta as John Gotti Sr., the late head of the Gambino crime family and Joe Pesci as his right-hand man.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, we heard that Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are getting married this Saturday in Los Angeles. They are supposedly keeping it quiet so the press won't bother them. They're inviting about 100 people, including Eddie's two sons and his ex-wife Brandi Glanville. Sorry, no ex-husband for Leann, Deam Sheremet was not on the list.
Nicholas Cage was arrested in New Orleans after a loud and drunken argument with his wifeâand then police, over the weekend. Cage and his wife,Â Alice Kim,Â began arguing on the sidewalk in front of a home in the French Quarter. He insisted it was the home they were renting, and she disagreed. Things got loud, and Cage began hitting cars. He also reportedly grabbed his wife's arm and tried to get into a taxi. Police arrived, and Cage, ever so wisely, began yelling at them. "Why don't you just arrest me?" he shouted, according to sources who described him as "very drunk." So arrest him they did. HeÂ was charged with domestic abuse battery, disturbing the peace, and public drunkenness. It looks like he also spent the night in jail before being released on $11,000 bond.Reality star Dog The Bounty Hunter posted the bond. "I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy," Duane Chapman said in a statement. "I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show. This is what I do for a living. There are two sides of my job: I release my clients after they have been arrested; and pick them up if they don't show up in court. I do not believe the latter will be the case for Mr. Cage." Cage is scheduled to appear in court May 31.
Â "Teen Mom 2" star Leah Messer has filed for divorce from Corey Simms. The 18-year-old MTV star filed papers in Kanawha County, W.V. earlier this month after six months of marriage. Leah and Corey, 20, had been dating for a month when they found out they were expecting. They split shortly after the birth of their twin daughters, Ali and Aleeah, in 2009. The couple reunited six months later and Corey proposed soon after.
"American Idol" finalist Jacob Lusk almost missed the opportunity to do "Idol" because of an arrest last year. Jacob was caught riding on an L.A. metro train without having bought a ticket in February of 2009. He was cited, but then blew off an appearance in court. A warrant was issued for his arrest. Then in November of last year, just one day after he auditioned for "Idol", Jacob was pulled over for a traffic violation. The cop discovered the warrant, and arrested him. Jacob was sentenced to three days in jail, and two years probation. And the thing is, you can't be on "Idol" if you're on probation. So Jacob went before a judge, and begged to have his probation dropped. And it worked. The judge actually gave him a break and now Jacob is in the top 7 on "Idol".
Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" is no longer dropping May 16th. The album will now be hitting stores sometime in June, though no further details have been provided. When Weezy got out of jail, he said his album was a done deal, it could come out now and that was months ago. Guess that's not the case, so we'll wait till June.
For the story about THE WORST DAY OF MY LIFE, please read my blog. The rumor was true. "All My Children" has been cancelled.
Â Pauly D is dangerously close to joining forces with G-Unit because as we've learned, 50 Cent desperately wants to sign him to his record label, In fact, a 3-album deal is already on the table. Sources close to negotiations said Pauly met with 50 and his people in NYC last week where they discussed the lucrative record deal and also tossed around the idea of a Pauly D merchandise line, specifically Pauly D-brand headphones. Nothing's signed yet but 50 wants to hammer out the deal ASAP before Pauly jets off to Italy to shoot "Jersey Shore" Season 4. We're told talks have become so serious that 50 and Pauly have even started to kick around ideas for people Pauly can collaborate with.
Former 98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons has joined the Chippendales show in Las Vegas. Now Jeff would like to clarify that he will be keeping his clothes on. He has signed on as a "special music guest star and emcee." Jeff said, "The regulars don't even strip, they're like trained dancers. The days of your grandma sticking dollar bills in a stripper's G-string are over."
A duo from Boston called Karmin have been unleashing some fun covers online and they're worth checking out. They do "Look at Me Now" by Chris Brown, featuring Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne with the girl, Amy, absolutely killing Busta's verse. Wow!!
So, how did the "American Idol" voters follow-up their big Pia Toscano shocker from last week? By actually eliminating a male contestant maybe? Paul McDonald, Stefano Langone and Haley Reinhart were all in the Bottom Three. After sending Haley back to the couch, it was Paul and Stefano standing in the center of the stage. The viewers sent home Paul McDonald, the first guy to leave the top 13. By the way, there's a rumor that Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams are working on their song choices together and in private, if you know what I mean. Some have already been pointing out the vibe between them on the show last night during their duet. There's no official word if they're dating or otherwise, but there probably won't be at least until after the show.
Kobe Bryant not only unleashed a gay slur against an NBA ref Tuesday night, he did so in view of TNT's cameras. After outrage mounted yesterday, the league fined him $100,000 and called his actions "offensive and inexcusable." Bryant got ticked off at referee Bennie Adams when he got a technical foul. After yelling "Bennie!" from the bench, Bryant shook his head and mouthed the words "f**cking f**got." Gay rights groups issued statements of condemnation today, and Kobe himself responded with an apology: "What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do not reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were not meant to offend anyone."
Charlie Sheen had another fail last night in Boston and later talked with a local radio station, but perhaps the most surprising aspect of the interview was when Sheen said he is not receiving syndication payments for his hit show "Two and a Half Men". He said, âI probably shouldnât talk about that. Iâm supposed to be getting syndication payments but that is, whatâs the term, âbeing withheld.ââ He said he was not getting paid for it, "not completely,â but changed his answer to "at all actually.â He said they can't justify it and that is why he is suing them. But he also said his return to "Two and a Half Men" is, about "85-percentâ but could not elaborate.
Catherine Zeta-Jones sought treatment for bipolar disorder after dealing with the stress of husband Michael Douglas's battle with advanced throat cancer, her representative said on Wednesday. "After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II Disorder," the actress's publicist said in a statement. "She's feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films," the statement said. It was not immediately when or where Catherine sought the treatment or when she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, weâve just learned that an explicit sex tape of a woman rumored to be Kelly Rowland is making its way across the web. The tape shows Kelly (or someone that looks a whole lot like her) getting Bootylicious with a white haired Caucasian man. But this isn't the typical sex tape. Apparently, in the tape, the man gets a little rough with her. And some have said itâs even kind of difficult to watch. We hear the tape is set to leak later today. Anybody buying that our precious Kelly Rowland is in a sex tape?
Â Â Chris Brown has recorded some kind of collaboration with Joe Jonas. It's a weird pairing, but it could be good for both of them. It could improve Chris' image, while making Joe a little more bad-ass. Or maybe the track will just be terrible, but Shaggy heard a few songs from Joe last time he was in L.A. and he says they're not bad. If you like the Jonas Brothers, you'll probably hate it, but not knowing it's a Jonas, you'll think it's pretty good. There are no details on the song yet. Here's a Twit Pic of Joe and Chris with producer Hit-Boy, who of course is in the middle.
Â Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria have signed new deals with "Desperate Housewives". They're now making $325,000 per episode, up from $275,000. With additional compensation and bonuses, they could each make $18 million over two years.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt say they are adopting a baby girl from Mexico. Reps have refused any comment on the news. The source said the paperwork is being finalized. The baby will be revealed at next month's Cannes Film Festival.
Last night on "Dancing With the Stars" one of the best dance pairs was in the bottom two. Although the judges criticized Mark Ballas and Chelsie Kane, they joined Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunsakaya in the bottom two. Sugar Ray was knocked out and now eight pairs remain.
Keri Hilson is taking it all off! It's time again for the nude issue of "Allure" magazine and she will be naked. But she's not doing it alone. Ashley Tisdale, Kaley Cuoco and Bridge Moynahan are stripping down with her.
Britney Spears appears on a remix of Rihanna's song "S&M". It's available on iTunes. Rihanna said she'd like to do a video with Britney sometime, but it doesn't sound like anything is in the works yet. She said, "I hope so, I want to spank Britney." And about the remix, Rihanna added, "It's very strange. Britney never does features. It was really amazing that she really wanted to be part of this song. She really liked "S&M" to begin with, but it was a different story when she had to sing it, and she really wanted to be a part of it. It made it really, really special, because you never see two pop female artists doing songs together anymore." She also mentioned that if the two ever came together to form a girl group, you could just call them "R&B".
Â Â Britney Spears will tour with Nicki Minaj this summer. Nicki replaces Enrique Iglesias, who reportedly backed out of the tour because he wanted it to be a co-headlining tour, not a situation where he was opening for Britney. Britney will make the official announcement later today.Â The tour kicks off in Sacramento on June 17th and will run up through a show in Toronto on August 13th.
Â Lady Gaga wiped out pretty hard during her show in Houston Sunday night. She had one foot on the keys and one on the stool when she fell off the piano, toppled to the ground, and appeared to bang her head against the ground or the piano as she landed. But apparently, she was okay because she got up and continued singing as if nothing had happened.
It's been less than four days since Pia Toscano's shocking "American Idol" elimination, so you may still be struggling to cope. But meanwhile, Pia may be moving on to even bigger and better things. Pia has already landed a record deal with Jimmy Iovine's label, Interscope. An insider tells "Us" magazine, "After the show, Interscope told her they wanted her, and first thing Friday morning, Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it. Papers are being finalized. It's basically a done deal. She's signing." Pia's rep tells E! Online that this is, "all rumor". Regardless, E! believes it ia happening, and reports that Interscope wants to have Pia's single out before this season of "Idol" wraps.
A record deal isn't the only perk Pia Toscano received thanks to her early ouster from "American Idol". Pia went on a date Friday night with Mark Ballas from "Dancing with the Stars". Apparently, Pia has a crush on Mark and it looks like pro wrestler Chris Jerico who's on "Dancing" this season set them up. They had dinner at the Gulfstream restaurant in Century City, California. Sources say it went well and they're already planning their second date.
Look for voting changes next season on "American Idol." The show was caught off-guard and embarrassed after Pia Toscano was voted off last Thursday. Now, producer Nigel Lythgoe wants viewers to vote for the bottom 3, and the judges would decide who goes home. By the way, Kelly Clarkson will return to the "Idol" stage Thursday. The Season 1 winner, who is now 28, will perform "Don't You Wanna Stay" with country singer Jason Aldean. Rihanna is also on Thursdayâs show. Clarksonâs fifth album will hit stores in September.
The cast of "Jersey Shore" is about to get richer. A lot richer. MTV has agreed to pay the, "core group" at least $100,000 per episode for Season Four. That's roughly $1.3 million for the season. It's unclear who fits into the "core group," but we assume that's at least Snooki, Pauly D, The Situation and JWoww. The main cast got about $25,000 per episode for Season Three, which was up from the $5,000 to $10,000 an episode they were paid for the second season. Filming on Season Four will begin in May, and the season will premiere later this year. There was some talk that contract negotiations delayed production, which was supposed to begin this week, but we also heard that the producers needed extra time to get shooting permits for Italian locations. By the way, a "source" tells E! online that the cast did not want be in Italy for too long, so they got MTV to agree to only do part of the season abroad. The rest will take place back at home in New Jersey.
Gucci Mane was arrested on Friday for allegedly pushing a woman out of a moving car. It happened back in January, but he's just now being arrested because his probation officer just discovered that he had a warrant out for his arrest. According to MTV News, Gucci was cruising around an Atlanta area mall in his Hummer, when he noticed a 36-year-old woman. He stopped, asked her if she wanted to go to breakfast, and she agreed. But once she got in the vehicle, Gucci tried to offer her $150 to "go to a hotel" with him. She refused, and asked him to take her back to the mall. That's when Gucci allegedly "leaned over to open the passenger side door and proceeded to shove her out of the car while the vehicle was in motion." The woman is OK. She just suffered "redness on her left side and back area." Gucci was charged with misdemeanor battery, but he could be headed back to prison if he's found to be in violation of his probation.
One of the downsides of the super-positive "American Idol" judging panel is: When left to their own devices, America does not know how to judge a singing competition. Last night, Pia Toscano was eliminated, and everyone was shocked. Or the judges were, at least. Jennifer Lopez said, "I have no idea what just happened here," and started to cry. Randy Jackson said, "You're one of the best singers. This makes me mad." So J-Lo was sad, Randy was mad, and Steven Tyler was, well, poetic. Steven said, "A mistake is one thing, but a lack of passion is unforgivable." Of course, the judges couldn't use their "judges' save" on Pia, because they already used it on Casey Abrams. Stefano Langone and Jacob Lusk were also in the Bottom Three.
Nikki Reed who plays Rosalie Hale in the "Twilight" movies is dating "American Idol" contestant Paul McDonald (had a farm). He's the blonde-haired guy who has the scratchy, Rod Stewart-esque voice and the extremely white teeth. If you watch the show, you might remember the two met when the contestants attended the premiere of "Red Riding Hood". She even told him, "You're amazing. I'm blushing, I should go." They've supposedly been keeping in touch via Skype. Here's video of their first meeting.Â Notice after they hug, Paul says, "Is she a famous actress or something?Â I'd probably hang out with her." Skip up to about :52 seconds to see Paul and Nikki meet.
As if four seasons of "Jersey Shore" wasn't enuogh, Snooki, J-Woww and Pauly D are getting their own spin-off shows. Snooki and J-Woww are actually doing a show together that'll deal with, "life and love." Pauly's show will be about his, "jet-setting and often hilarious life on the road as one of the country's most in-demand DJs." Both shows will debut sometime next year. There's no word on a title for either.
The FBI has released a thick file detailing its investigation into Christopher "Notorious BIG" Wallace's fatal 1997 shooting. Biggie was killed with an extremely rare piece of ammunition, the Gecko 9mm, which is manufactured in Germany and available through only two distributors in the US. But that same ammo was found at the home of a corrupt former LAPD officer, David Mack, who was arrested later in 1997 for masterminding a bank heist and was just sprung from jail last May. Mack had known ties to Death Row Records, the label of Wallace rival Tupac Shakur, who had been killed six months earlier. Police found a shrine to Shakur in Mack's home as well as a black Chevy SS Impala, the same type of car that pulled up alongside, then fired at, Big. As Abramovitch points out, this information isn't new, but the file reveals that the FBI "specifically noted a remarkable failure on the part of the LAPD: the failure to connect to the crime the literal smoking-gun evidence found at the home of the very bad man who owned the exact same car as the murderer."
"Dancing with the Stars" pro Karina Smirnoff goes nude for Playboyâs May issue and according to Hugh Hefner itâs going to be âunforgettable.â Karina is paired with Ralph Macchio for this season of DWTS and the two are tearing it up on the dance floor, but this is her first time posing for Playboy. Hefner has been prominent on the set of "Dancing with the Stars" this season not only because of his work with Smirnoff, but his former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson is a contestant on the show.
Â Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are going through a rough patch in their relationship. A source says, "Things have been a bit rocky for a while. They both have hectic work schedules, Rob in particular at the moment, and their phone calls were getting fewer and further between. They started to only see each other on set and began to drift apart. The excuses why they couldn't meet up basically got weaker and weaker, and Rob figured they should officially cool things off and have some time to figure out what they each want." Again, keep in mind that this is completely unconfirmed at this time.
Taylor Swift sure likes her actor/musician types. So far she's dated Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith, Chord Overstreet, John Mayer and now sheâs linked to Garrett Hedlund. You may recognize Garrett for his role as Sam Flynn in "Tron: Legacy" or as Don Billingsley in "Friday Night Lights". Taylor may have hooked up with him because of his work in the movie "Country Strong" opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. Taylor and Garrett were spotted on a dinner date recently in Nashville. A source said, "It was their first time going out. They've been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together." They met up around 8:00 pm, but Garrett went back to his hotel room alone at around 12:30 am.
Now Jakey on the other hand is moving on too. Jake Gyllenhaal recently hooked up with an actress from â90210â. For those of you that watch it, itâs Jessica Lowndes who plays Adrianna Tate-Duncan. It happened at the Greenwich Hotel in New York City. But we can't necessarily read anything into it yet. I heard he went out to the clubs with a different date later that same night. Jake's rep says, "They're not dating" while Jessica's rep issued a "no comment."
Two upcoming Drake shows in Pennsylvania just got shut down months before they were scheduled to happen -- after it was discovered that a con artist booked him without permission. Drake's rep said he was shocked to find out he was slated to appear twice in May at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA because he never agreed or even heard about the show. The fake booking was made by a con artist claiming to be Drake's manager -- and as soon as the theater picked up on the scam, they canceled both shows. Drake's rep tells us, âDrake is currently working on his second album and not touring at this time.â Tickets for the bogus shows have been refunded -- and the matter has been handed over to authorities for investigation.
Britney Spears - "Till The World Ends"
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey took some nude pictures of themselves to hang in their home to commemorate Mariah's pregnancy. But he's regretting it now on behalf of their unborn children. He says, "My children are going to have to see these pictures. It's a little weird. It's a little nasty. I mean, have you ever seen your parents naked? When they get older and their friends come over, they will see the pictures and say, 'Your daddy's butt naked.' I don't want my naked booty out there for everyone to see!" I got an idea Nick, and I'm just spitballing here, but...take them off your walls!!
Tax documents show Bristol Palin earned more than $262,000 for her role in helping raise awareness for teen pregnancy prevention in 2009. She works for The Candie's Foundation and her son Tripp is now 2 years old. Bristol was only 18 when she was appointed as a teen ambassador.
Waka Flocka Flame made the dreams of a terminally il teenager come true when he surprised 16 year-old Kiyana Lyles in her hotel room in Atlanta. She suffered a recent kidney failure and Waka had gotten word that she was a huge fan. Her dream was to one day meet him, so he teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to make her dream come true. He surprised her at the door of her hotel, she screamed like any teenager would, but then he stuck around, spending a genuine amount of time with her. He also signed a CD for her and invited her to a near-by show in Columbus, GA. Good job Waka!!
Last night on "Dancing With the Stars" everyone worried that Kirstie Alley might go home due to Maksim's thigh giving out causing them to fall on the floor, but she made it another week. In the bottom three were Kendra, Chris and Wendy. After the third week of competition, Wendy Williams and her partner Tony were eliminated.
Lindsay Lohan will reportedly try out for a part in the new Superman movie, "Man of Steel". It's not Lois Lane, though. That role has already been taken by Amy Adams. The part Lindsay is reading for is one of the villains. Of course, if Lindsay ends up back in prison, she'll be doing no movies for the foreseeable future.
Â Â Justin Timberlake and Olivia Wilde are both newly single. So was it a coincidence that they were hanging out together at the Roxbury in Hollywood Saturday night? Some say no. Witnesses say they arrived together, and were, "snuggled together in the VIP section" before leaving at 3:00am. But a source says they're just friends, "They happened to meet each other there. They weren't on a date. They've been friends since they worked together on "Alpha Dog" but nothing's going on. They're just friends." Olivia herself denied the relationship on Twitter, "Cool it, honeybadgers. We are just friends and have been for years." Justin and Olivia just finished filming a sci-fi movie together called "Now". It comes out in October.
Mary J Blige will release new music on September 20th with her new album "My Life II, The Journey Continues". The original "My Life" came out in 1994 and went triple platinum. Let's hope this one does the same. Here is the video for her first single from the upcoming album.
Mary J Blige (featuring Puff Diddly Pooh and Lil Wayne)
WARNING: Weezy doesn't exactly keep it clean in his verse - several F bombs!
Beyonce will also be releasing new music this summer. Her fourth solo studio project may come out as early as June. She previewed six tracks for some Sony executives and received a very positive review. She told MTV News last year that her album has no genre, and its sound takes inspiration from several different types of music.
Justin Bieber celebrated his mom's birthday by saving her from inadvertently setting her hair on fire. Sort of. Here's what happened, Justin surprised Pattie by giving her a birthday cake onstage during his show in Germany on Saturday night, but when she leaned over to blow out the candles, a few strands of her hair caught fire. Justin saw it, and immediately put it out. He later Tweeted, "Sick show in Berlin...brought my mom onstage to sing her happy bday, but she lit her hair on fire with the candles. LOL. I saved her. Don't worry it wasn't bad." And his mom Tweeted, "Thank u for the cake (and embarrassing me onstage). LOL."
Rihanna doesn't just appear on the cover of the new "Rolling Stone" in painted-on shorts. She also gave them a pretty candid interview, in which she revealed her preferences in the bedroom. Not surprisingly, she's a little kinky. She says, "I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned because you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I'd rather have him use his hands." She adds, "Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge. That's sexy to me." Rihanna is also a bit of a masochist outside the bedroom. "It's not something I'm proud of, and it's not something I noticed until recently. I think it's common for people who witness abuse in their household." Obviously, that brings us to Chris Brown. First off, she addressed easing the restraining order that's been in place since he assaulted her in February of 2009. She said, "You can never please people. One minute I'm being too hard, and the next minute I'm a fool because I'm not being hard enough. It doesn't mean we're gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn't want to object to the judge." Rihanna says she's not jumping back into any kind of relationship with Chris, but at the same time, she's not interested in punishing him anymore, either. She says, "We don't have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn't want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing. It had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can't perform at awards shows, that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn't care." Rihanna admits she kept her emotions in check after the Chris Brown incident, "I put my guard up so hard. I didn't want people to see me cry. I didn't want people to feel bad for me. It was a very vulnerable time in my life, and I refused to let that be the image. I wanted them to see me as, 'I'm fine, I'm tough.' I put that up until it felt real."
The âGreyâs Anatomyâ episode tonight is the âSong Beneath the Songâ episode. We were left with an intense episode last week where Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) were in a car accident, leaving Arizona hurt but Callie in much worse shape as she went through the windshield and is 6 months pregnant. Callieâs injured state causes a hallucinatory experience that results in the characters breaking into song as her struggle for life occurs aside them. The entire cast, including special guest stars Kate Walsh, Rachael Taylor, Daniel Sunjata and Scott Foley, will perform songs like Snow Patrolâs âChasing Cars,â and even the showâs most-associated song, The Frayâs âHow to Save a Life.â The episode will feature the eight songs listed below, all of which have been featured before on past episodes of âGreyâs Anatomy.â
âBreathe (2am)â by Anna Nalick
âChasing Carsâ by Snow Patrol
âGraceâ by Kate Havnevik
âHow to Save a Lifeâ by The Fray

Now that Enrique Iglesias has dropped out of his co-headlining tour with Britney Spears this summer, we're hearing that he may be replaced by none other than "Jersey Shore's"DJ Pauly D, who shares the same manager as the pop star, Larry Rudolph. Sources claim that it's unlikely that he'll hitch along for the entirety of the tour, because he'll be filming the fourth season of Jersey Shore in Italy next month, but we think this may actually work out better! We're assuming that the ticket prices were so high because Brit Brit was sharing the stage with Enrique, so hopefully now that he's out they'll be more reasonable, And DJ Pauly D will draw a lot of his fanbase in without such high ticket prices.
Courteney Cox was photographed on the Caribbean island of St. Barts on Tuesday with "Cougar Town" co-star Josh Hopkins. He plays her boyfriend Grayson. They had her 6-year-old daughter Coco with David Arquette with them. But Courteney's rep was quick to get out ahead of any rumors that might develop, saying, "Courteney is there with Josh, Coco and some other good friends. Strictly platonic." Courteney has already been romantically linked to another co-star, Brian Van Holt, who plays her ex-husband Bobby.
Britney Spears announced that she'd be touring with Enrique Iglesias during a pre-taped appearance on "Good Morning America" yesterday, but that won't be happening after all. Enrique's rep released a statement last night saying, "Unfortunately, Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears will not be touring together. Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He's very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone." What that boils down to is that everyone is saying Enrique bailed because he wanted it to be a co-headlining tour, and that wasn't going to be the case. I guess his ego got in the way. Some also say that Enrique wanted more money. Britney's camp hasn't commented, and neither has tour promoter Live Nation. She comes to DC on July 31st and tickets go on sale April 6th. Â
Disney star and "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Chelsea Kane is in the middle of a scandalous cocaine video in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. She says, âThat bums me out hard core because itâs not me, and the other girl that theyâre suggesting in the video is my co-star Nicole Anderson. Itâs just such a bummer because our faces are pixilated and itâs just so obvious that someone is trying to start some controversy.â A small clip of the said video was viewed by one source who has said it was âfootage that makes the Miley Cyrus bong video look like a Disney movie.â But 22-year-old Chelsea said that although this is the first time sheâs been at the center of a scandal, itâs not likely that she will take any legal action. Â
Mariah Carey may have gone into labor yesterday. Because last night, Nick Cannon posted on Twitter, "On a plane back to NY. Praying Dem Babies wait for DADDY to come back b4 they pop out!" This is just a few days after she went to the hospital with early labor pains. It's just a matter of time now! Â
Kevin Federline is going to have baby #5 with baby mama #3. His girlfriend, Victoria Prince, is five months pregnant. She and Kevin are said to be "totally happy." He has two sons with Britney Spears, 5-year-old Sean Preston and 4-year-old Jayden. And he has two kids with Shar Jackson, an 8-year-old daughter named Kori and a 6-year-old son named Kaleb. Â and Justin Bieber did a video promo for the 40th annualÂ "Juno Awards" (that's Canada's musicÂ awards show)Â and ended up singing a love song to each other.
Kanye WestÂ is in love in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! He and Teyana Taylor have started dating! According to one of Kanye's boys, Kanye and Teyana have had a flirty relationship for about a year - while Teyana was dating NBA player Brandon Jennings. But two months ago, when Teyana and Brandon officially ended things, Kanye started seeing Teyana. The insider explains, "Kanye was intrigued by her innocence, and her body." Now, a source says Kanye is head over heels in love. "Teyana must have put it on him, all Kanye talks about is her. Heâs even signed her to a deal and is featuring her heavy on his new album - with Jay-Z.â As weâve seen, Kanye has a way of making his girlfriends into superstars, so get ready for Teyana's celebrity to go into overdrive!
Â Â Nicki Minaj gave Lil Wayne a lap-dance at their show in New York on Sunday night. She sat him down and told him,Â "You got three rules: Legs open, hands behind your head, mouth shut."
All three girls involved in the "Teen Mom"fight last week in Brunswick, NCÂ have been officially charged. Janelle Evans, Britany Truett and Brittany Maggard have been charged with disorderly conduct by fighting in a public place. They face up to 60 days in jail.
The cast of "Jersey Shore" is about to hit up Italy to begin filming the show's fourth season. And perhaps not surprisingly, Italians aren't exactly thrilled to welcome them. One Italian newspaper columnist wrote, "They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized." An Italian TV critic said that he's "afraid" of what this season may do to the image of Italy abroad, which he described as, "already weakened." Another publication described the cast as, "Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity." That's not too bad, but it does get worse. A commenter on Italy's MTV page said, "When I see this, I wonder whether Osama Bin Laden had a point."
"Glee" star Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) was involved in a car accident early Friday morning, but she's okay. Lea was driving home from work at about 2:00am, when another car smashed into hers. A source says, "A couple of drunk girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous and said something like 'Are you drunk, too?' Then they drove off." Lea got the license plate number and called the police. As far as we know, they haven't located the other driver yet.
Chris Brown has apologized for throwing a tantrum backstage at "Good Morning America" and smashing his dressing room window with a chair. During an appearance on BET's "106 & Park", he said, "First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed in the way I acted." Chris claimed that before the interview, he only agreed to answer questions about his new album so he was thrown off by Robin Roberts pressing him about Rihanna. He said, "As the interview proceeded, I was thrown off. I felt like, OK, they told us this just so they could get us on the show to exploit me. I took it very, very hard. I kept my composure throughout the whole interview and when I got back, I just let off steam in the back. I didn't physically hurt anyone. I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me. I felt like I worked so hard for this music and I got very emotional." But despite his anger, Chris asked his fans not to send death threats to Roberts.
The sexual chemistry between "Dancing with the Stars" couple Lacey Schwimmer and 'Psycho' Mike has ABC scared to death. The network asked them to tone down the sexual undertones. They know there is a spark there -- everyone is talking about their amazing chemistry. They basically told them to cool it with the sexual tension, but they both just laughed about it. The couple scored the lowest points with their Foxtrot on the first week of competition, but this did not stop Lacey and Mike from sharing their feelings for each other. Mike reportedly joked that the best part about the routine was "grabbing her butt." And Lacey even said, "We would make a great couple," and admitted to having seen "every part of his body." While Mike does have a girlfriend, a source said that the relationship is "on the rocks."
Last night's "American Idol" could have been one of the most shocking results shows ever. And that's no exaggeration. America decided it had seen enough of Casey Abrams. He was easily one of the show's frontrunners. Or at least everybody thought he was. When Casey took the microphone to "sing for his life", the judges stopped him almost immediately. Obviously, there was no question they were going to use their "judges' save" to keep him alive. Randy JacksonÂ said, "Stop the music! This is crazy wrong!" Casey actually kind of lost it after they cut off his song, because he figured that they wouldn't use the save so early, meaning he thought they were cutting him off because he had no shot. Joining Casey in the Bottom Three were Stefano Langone and Thia Megia. Because nobody went home last night, two people will be eliminated next week. Also, there will be 11 singers on the summer "Idols Live" tour instead of the usual 10.
Meanwhile, this year's "American Idol" contestants were put up in an awesome $12 million Beverly Hills mansion. It supposedly cost $100,000 a month to rent. But they moved out last week, because the place was haunted. The contestants complained of "bizarre flickering lights" and a sudden spider infestation, but the nail in the coffin, so to speak, was when several of the contestants supposedly witnessed "a bed sheet float down an empty hallway." The contestants demanded a new crib, and the producers obliged. They're now living in an "undisclosed location." This isn't the first time the supernatural has screwed around with "American Idol" contestants. Two years ago, in a different mansion, the kids claimed to have had encounters with a ghost named Phyllis. Phyllis would bang around all night and keep everyone awake. Some contestants even claimed to have caught glimpses of her.
Concert promoter Live Nation says Rihanna's North American tour is going ahead and reports of poor ticket sales are inaccurate. 30 shows are scheduled across North America in June and July and she sold out 56 arenas in Europe. However, Nick heard from a radio friend in Boston that they can't sell tickets, they can't even give away tickets. Maybe some of those dates will get cancelled after all?
Lindsay Lohan has officially informed prosecutors in Los Angeles that they can take their plea deal and stick it. Okay, that's probably not how she said it. But she did reject the deal, because it would have resulted in guaranteed jail time. Instead, she's going to plead her case in front of a jury. She's now due back in court April 22nd for a preliminary hearing. That's where a judge will decide whether or not Lindsay's felony theft case even goes to trial in the first place. The judge will also decide whether the alleged theft of a necklace violates Lindsay's DUI probation.
I don't know whether to laugh or be totally creeped out about Tiger Woods dating a 22-year-old girl who'd been his neighbor since she was seven years old. ButÂ this is just funny.Â "Us Weekly" says that when Alyse Lahti Johnston was a kid, she used to make crayon drawings for her future boyfriend. A source says, "She would draw good luck pictures for Tiger before his tournaments." Alyse is 22, Tiger is 35. Her stepfather is one of the big shots at Tiger's sports management agency. They've been neighbors for about 15 years. I suppose that since Tiger and Alyse are both adults, it's technically okay, but crayon drawings? I wonder if Tiger still has any of them in his little memory box?
Despite his window-breaking incident the other day, "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts says she'd like Chris Brown back on the show. She says, "We extended the invitation to him and we sure hope he takes us up on it, because we'd love to have another chat with him." Robin also insists that she talked to Chris before the interview about what questions she was going to ask him, "Anytime we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter, the topics that we're going to discuss. Even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was." Meanwhile, ABC said they're not going to file a police report, meaning that Chris is indeed off the hook.
Â Â Ashley Greene is fresh off her breakup with Joe Jonas and already moving on to the next guy. She was seen flirting with the new "Captain America", Chris Evans, at a Hollywood club the other night. A witness says, "Ashley was all over Chris, and he certainly didn't mind. "They were dancing together very closely. It looked like they had a lot of sexual chemistry." Ashley has also been linked to Jared Followill from Kings of Leon since she and Joe broke up.
The new preview for "Captain America" starring Chris Evans. I love how they made him look so scrawny for the first part of the movie using digital technology, but wait till you see him come out of his pod at 1:27.
Now that Justin Timberlake is out of the picture, Jessica Biel is free to engage in any behavior she wants to with her male co-stars like a good actress should. And the games may have already begun. Jessica is in Louisiana, shooting a movie called "Playing the Field". Her co-star is Gerard Butler. And they might just be co-stars with benefits with benefits. Sources say they've spent four nights together over the past week or so. A source says, "When Gerard got there, he made a beeline for Jessica. He was really flirting with her."
Chris Brown had a temper tantrum after his appearance on "Good Morning America" yesterday, because Robin Roberts asked him about his assault of Rihanna. After the interview, Brown performed one song (he was scheduled to do two) then stormed back to his dressing room, grabbed a chair and smashed a window with it, sending shattered glass to the sidewalk below. Chris went pretty ballistic to the point where his yelling and screaming even frightened some staffers, who called security. He also got in a producer's face, but other people stepped in and kept them from throwing down. By the time security arrived, Brown had already stormed out of the building. Shirtless. In 40-degree weather. Chris went to "GMA" to talk about his new album, "F.A.M.E.", but Robin kept trying to steer the conversation toward Rihanna. Chris told her, "It's not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I'm past that in my life. Today's the album day, so that's what I'm focused on." When she pushed him further, he said, "I've been focusing on this album. I think this album is what I want people to hear and want people to really get into. Definitely this album is what I want to talk about and not what happened two years ago." An ABC source claims that before the interview, Chris gave Robin the green light to ask him about Rihanna. But another source says he expected to be asked one question about the incident, and not be pressed the way he was. After the whole thing went down, Chris hit up Twitter and said, "I'm so over people bringing up the past (crap) up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for their bull(crap)." But then he deleted that post. Chris was sentenced to five years' probation for his assault of Rihanna in February of 2009. That also means that if he gets into any legal trouble before those three years are up, they could haul him in on a probation violation. Which would lead to further punishment, possibly even jail time. But it doesn't look like that'll happen. The official line from the NYPD is that they weren't called, so they're not getting involved in Chris's "Good Morning America" window-breaking outburst. And if they don't get involved, it's not likely that court officials in California will do anything about it, either. However, he could lose another ABC gig and this one would put him in front of a lot more viewers than "Good Morning America". Chris is scheduled to perform on "Dancing With the Stars" next Tuesday night. But DWTS fans are lighting up the message boards at ABC.com, asking them to cancel his appearance.
When Selena Gomez was on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last September, Ellen tried to press her about her relationship with Justin Bieber. And Selena told her, "He's little. He's like my little brother. That's weird to me." Well, Selena can't deny the relationship anymore. So when she returned to "Ellen" yesterday, Ellen put her on the spot and even played the clip where Selena denied it. She said, "He's like your little brother? What do you have to say now?" When Ellen joked that Selena made a fool of her, Selena said, "No, I really didn't. I promise you, I didn't. He's just sweet." Ellen replied, "He is. He's sweet as can be. But he's not like your little brother, is he?" Selena told Ellen, "I didn't lie to you. I didn't, though. I'll say that." To which Ellen replied, "No, you didn't blatantly lie. But a little brother is not someone you want to date." And Selena said, "Well, no. That would be weird." Watch the madness!
There's a movie in development called "Tupac", which is about Tupac's life specifically the latter part of it, up until his murder. But enough of the morbid stuff. If you think you could play Tupac, well you're in luck: Because the production company has opened up an online casting call, asking for actors to send in audition reels. And you don't have to look exactly like Tupac. One of the producers says, "We're looking for someone with the right mix of raw charm and charisma for the role. At this point, we're more concerned about finding someone with the ability to give their entire heart into the performance than just looks and personality." The site is InSearchOfTupac.com. You'll need to send them your performance of a scene that they provide and perform a Tupac rap. They're accepting submissions up through April 30th.
Brad Womack and Emily Maynard have admitted that their "Bachelor" engagement hasn't been smooth sailing so far, but they insist that their relationship is still on at least publicly. But there's still talk that it's doomed. If that's the case, claims ABC is already considering the possibility of bringing Brad back for a third "Bachelor" run. Supposedly, ABC isn't concerned with the success or failure of Brad's love life, they're just trying to figure out if another season with Brad would be good or bad, ratings-wise. I will boycott that program for sure if they bring him back again. Grrr!!!
Sooooo Chris Brown finished up a flawless interview with the Z Morning Zoo but he didn't keep his cool after his interview with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America".Â At first, he did a great job trying to redirect the conversation to his album, but she kept at it. She has mentioned that she and other "GMA" staffers got permission to ask "a few questions" regarding the Rihanna incident two years ago. Watch their brief interviewÂ HEREÂ
But then after the interview, ChrisÂ stormed into his dressing room and screamed so loud that hair and make-up people called security. That's when he allegedly picked up a chair and threw itÂ into the window causing glass to fall into the streets below in Times Square. Luckily no one was injured. By the time security showed up, ChrisÂ had ripped his shirt off andÂ left the building. Don't forget, Chris is still on probation for the felony beating. Obviously, the story is still developing...
Â Â Soulja Boy's 14-year-old half-brother Deion Jenkins died in a car accident on Sunday night. For now, all we know is that it happened in a small town called Charleston, Mississippi. We also know that he was a passenger in the vehicle, of course. Yesterday, Soulja Boy Tweeted, "At home crying my eyes out. I can't believe my Lil bro is gone...today is so not my day...R.I.P. lil brother. Love you always. :(" And Sean Kingston Tweeted, "Life is really short man...why do the good die young? @SouljaBoy Keep your head up, stay strong...Ima keep u in my prayers bro, realtalk."
There are reports all over the World Wide Web of Misinformation that CBS is trying to get Charlie Sheen back on "Two and a Half Men". And CBS President Les Moonves, who's been the target of some of Charlie's truth torpedoes is even involved. Sources say he's been speaking with people at Warner Brothers TV about re-hiring Charlie. Warner Brothers produces the show, and they're the ones who actually canned him. He's also spoken to "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre, telling him, "Let us handle Charlie." Why does CBS want Charlie back? One source says, "They saw how popular his tour has become, how it has been selling out, and when word spread that he started talking to Fox about a late-night show, some decision-makers got a little antsy." We assume Charlie would have to drop his $100 million lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Brothers. Charlie may not be looking to return to CBS, though. Yesterday, he dropped a Tweet that made it sound like he's serious about heading to Fox. "#Foxball; Perhaps a new lair.....? A Fox and a Warlock? epic. ybw c." It was followed by a link to a picture of a Fox logo. Meanwhile, he seemed pretty welcome on ABC last night, he appeared as an unscheduled guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", interrupted Jimmy's interview with billionaire Mark Cuban and kissed Jimmy on the lips. After he soaked up a ton of applause, he tossed out a bunch of t-shirts with stuff like "winning" and "tiger blood" on them and gave Jimmy a mug with a fox on it, which was obviously a reference to his recent talks with Fox.
There has been speculation for months about who Simon Cowell will have on the judging panel for "X Factor" - some even pointing to Mariah Carey as a possibility. However, weâve learned that Mariah will not be a judge on the show, despite the rumors circulating. Simon did approach her with the request but she politely declined the offer, as she is busy preparing for the arrival of her twins with husband Nick Cannon and writing music for a new album. Meanwhile, Simon is pitching Cheryl Cole to the network as another judge.
Â Â Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly set to host âX Factorâ after meeting with Simon Cowell. During an interview to be a judge, Simon offered her the job of the presenter. She has not yet accepted the money offer, as it sounds like negotiations are still in play.
New promo for "The Voice" on NBC starring Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and host Carson Daly. The show starts Tuesday,Â April 26th on NBC.Â
Wyclef Jean says he was shot in the hand in Haiti on Saturday night on the eve of the country's run-off presidential election. But police have a different story. Wyclef was in Haiti trying to get out the vote for one of the candidates. As you may recall, Wyclef tried to get into the race himself last year, but was denied because he didn't meet residency requirements. According to Wyclef's story, he got out of his car to make a phone call, heard gunshots and noticed that his hand was bleeding. He was treated at a hospital and released. He said, "The way I can explain it is that the bullet grazed me in my right hand. I heard blow, blow, blow and I just looked at my hand." However, the local chief of police says, "We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass."
Backup dancers on Britney Spears' upcoming Femme Fetale tour will be banned from consuming alcohol and drugs anywhere near her. If the are suspected of breaking the rules, they will be subjected to random testing. They must sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Â Â Nicki Minaj is in talks to be a judge on the American version of "X Factor". Simon Cowell wants to land her and met with Nicki in Los Angeles earlier this month. A source said, âSimon thinks Nicki is fantastic. She's sassy, she looks great and has bags of personality. She has a large following and fits well with the culture of the show. This isn't a done deal yet, but Nicki would be great, she fits the ideal that X Factor will be exciting, vibrant and different. And the show would also be great for her career.' Still in consideration to be a judge: Enrique Iglesias, Taylor Momsen, and Cheryl Cole. Former Island Def Jam Music Group chairman L.A. Reid is so far the only confirmed judge on the show, which will debut on the Fox television network this fall.
Â Â Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger have broken up. There's no official word yet from their reps yet, but they had been dating since July of 2009. Not that we can take this without a grain of salt, but the "Star" tabloid claims Bradley was hooking up with both Sandra Bullock and Jessica Biel behind Renee's back. Just this past January, Renee skipped the Golden Globes to be with Bradley when his father died. Bradley and Renee had at least one thing in common: Short marriages. Bradley and Jennifer Esposito got divorced after four months together in 2007. And in 2005, Renee and country singer Kenny Chesney had their marriage annulled also after four months.
Hear directly from Lil Wayne! He's got "Tha Carter 4"Â announcement with Sway from MTV.
Leann Rimes went to Twitter to deny she's becomming too thin. She Tweeted, "Maybe it's time for a nude pic, so peeps can see how I look nowhere near what these stupid pics are trying to make me look like." By the way, LeAnn didn't leave it at one Tweet. Later she added, "If people only saw how much I ate. I am completely healthy! It's a photo...see me IN PERSON!" What do you think?
Joe Jonas and Ashley Green have called it quits. They began dating last summer, but now she's off to Vancouver filming the latest "Twilight" film while he's preparing to put out his first solo album this summer. Their reps issued a joint statement yesterday saying, "We can confirm they have parted ways and have no further comment." It's not clear exactly when they broke up, but they've been seen doing their thing separately for a few weeks now. Ashley may be the first to move on. Tuesday night, she was spotted at a club in New York City with Jared Followill from Kings of Leon. Sources say they were, "dancing and flirting."
Vanessa Hudgens was interviewed by the FBI over those nude pictures of her that hit the Internet this week. It seems that the pictures were stolen by hackers who broke into her G-mail account. You know, the same G-mail account that YOU have! And the same people have also hacked and stolen from up to 50 other celebrities. They include the following:
It's not clear if the hackers got anything as juicy from any of these ladies as they got from Vanessa.
Last night on "American Idol" they had to send home one more girl - there were three girls in the bottom three, but after sending Naima Adedapo over to the couch, it was between Haley Reinhart and Karen Rodriguez. It was the end of the road for Karen. The judges decided not to save poor K-Rod.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, according to a very well regarded record industry insider from Atlanta, Missy Elliott used to date Keri Hilson. The two met when Keri was a young songwriter and Missy was an international superstar. The insider explained, "Missy is a larger than life personality. She's like a dude. I've seen her turn out straight girls." And a young Keri was no match for Missy's game. The insider said, âMissy and Keri started off as friends, but Missy was really seducing her. Keri ended up infatuated with Missy, she may have even been in love." But Missy is a hit-it-and-quit-it kinda gal, according to this source. So after the two's whirlwind romance, Missy dumped Keri and Keri was broken up about it.
"American Idol" finalist Stefano Langone has shared his story about how he almost died in an accident caused by a drunk driver in May of 2009. But according to new reports, he was busted for DUI himself almost exactly a year later. Last May, Washington state police pulled Stefano over for speeding. He failed field sobriety tests including not being able to recite his ABCs and was arrested on suspicion of DUI. In the report, the arresting officer said, "While en route to headquarters, Stefano began singing." The judge handed him a 30-day suspended sentence, and fined him $863. He also had to take a drug and alcohol education course. In the past, minor offenses have been ignored as long as the contestant is upfront about their past legal problems. So I doubt Stefano's position on the show is in any jeopardy. However, if "Idol" knew about that DUI arrest when his audition aired, it seems pretty irresponsible of them to highlight his DUI victim story.
Chris Brown was asked point-blank about that naked picture of him that leaked recently. He pretty much evaded any direct questions, like who he was sending the picture to. Although he did confirm that it was, "definitely a girl." He didn't deny it was him, in fact, he revealed that it was an "out-the-shower shot" and, most impressively, he was not excited. Not surprisingly, he also admitted that he's very comfortable with his body. He'll be on the Z Morning Zoo Tuesday morning and trust me, I'll ask him about it.
Katie Holmes took her 4 year-old daughter Suri to a New York City restaurant/sweet shop called Serendipity the other day. And apparently, when Katie wasn't looking, Suri grabbed a box of penis gummies off a shelf. And, of course, the paparazzi were there. Penis Gummies are candy. They're just like Gummy Bears, except they're not shaped like bears, they're shaped like, well, you get the idea. In one of the pictures, Katie looks like she's trying not to laugh, like she knows it ain't right, but she can't help herself.
Warren G featuringÂ Nate Dogg -Â "Regulate"Â R.I.P. Nate Dogg....
Nate Dogg died on Tuesday. He was 41. His family confirmed his passing last night. There's no word on a cause of death yet, but Nate suffered two serious strokes in 2007 and in 2008. Last spring, a friend said the strokes had left him speechless, literally. He said, "Nate's way of communicating is to look up if it's a 'Yes' and to the side if it's a 'No.' He is steps away from speaking again." Nate made his debut on Dr. Dre's classic album, "The Chronic", in 1992. He was a member of the rap group 213, along with Snoop Dogg and Warren G. He released three albums, but was better known for his collaborations with other artists, like Eminem, 50 Cent, Tupak and several others. His collaborations earned him four Grammy nominations. Fox gave the "American Idol" contestants individual Twitter accounts this yet and some people think it could spoil the results. The thinking is that you can judge the popularity of the contestants and therefore the order they'll be eliminated by the number of followers they have. So for what it's worth, last week's bottom three have three of the four lowest follower numbers and Ashton Jones who was eliminated, has the fewest overall. Here are the contestants ranked by their followers, with their total as of last night: Casey Abrams . . . 29,878 followers Scotty McCreery . . . 28,818 followers Paul McDonald . . . 24,467 followers Lauren Alaina . . . 21,029 followers Thia Megia . . . 20,650 followers Pia Toscano . . . 19,670 followers James Durbin . . . 19,010 followers Stefano Langone . . . 17,147 followers Jacob Lusk . . . 11,437 followers Karen Rodriguez . . . 10,621 Haley Reinhart . . . 10,467 Naima Adedapo . . . 9,720
Ashthon Jones . . . 6,652
So if this holds true, Naima is out this week, and Karen and Haley would probably be back in the bottom three. Jay Z and Will Smith have long been friends, but in recent months, their friendship has gotten a lot stronger. And a person close to Jay's family is concerned that Will's Scientology ways are rubbing off on him. The insider said that Will wants Jay-Z and Beyonce to join Scientology and that Jay might have joined the church. They added that he seems different, "Jay-Z does not sound the same. I overheard him ranting about the power of the mind, and he sounded crazy." Do you think Beyonce will go with him or stick to some Jesus time? Playgirl has confirmed that they've offered $10,000 to anyone who can get them a naked picture of CNN's Anderson Cooper. Believe it or not, there is a list called 'Top 10 Guys We Want To See Naked,' which will be in their March issue. The magazine says, "He's got this charisma that a lot of our readers are attracted to, plus now he's all muscled, so he's not only smart but also hot. Both our male and female readers love Anderson." Theyâre being called the "Cooper Scoopers"â¦ ha ha ha!!
Ladies, this one's for you: In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, there is a sex tape featuring Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster. It was shot in happier times, of course. They split up in 2009. TMZ claims to have seen the tape, and they say it's definitely Usher and Tameka. So far, no one has posted pictures or video from it. Usher has yet to comment, but Tameka hit up Twitter and didn't deny such a tape might exist. In fact, she seemed to confirm it, "NEWSFLASH!! BREAKING NEWS! GUESS WHAT??!! I have copulated w/my husband! Why is this news again?? #ConfusedTweet. End of discussion." Later on, she added,Â "Yes, I can't stress over what I can't change. Hey I was married, happily. So there's a chance that we might. It's silly 'news' 2 me." Then she released a formal statement. Once again, there's no denial. She said, "Yes, I have had sex with my ex husband. Multiple times. Would I sanction a sex tape being out? Absolutely not. I am a mother and entrepreneur. Sex tapes or pornography would not be my lane. I have no desire to be seen in that way."
Some new, censored nude pictures of Vanessa Hudgens popped up online yesterday. One of them is even a pretty blatant spread eagle pose. There's also a picture of Vanessa making out with Alexa Nikolas. She played Nicole Bristow on the Nickelodeon series "Zoey 101". Then, for good measure, there are some censored nude pics of Alexa along with shots of her making out with two other chicks. There's speculation that one of them is Victoria Justice, from the Nickelodeon show "Victorious". She and Alexa are longtime friends although in the picture, they're being a little more than friends.
New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys have toured together and now they're taking it to the next logical step. They're doing a joint greatest hits album called "NKOTBSB". There will also be a few new songs, which they will do together. One of those songs "Don't Turn Out the Lights" will be the first single. The disc will feature five classic singles by each group. And they're letting fans decide which tracks make the cut through an online poll at NKOTBSBvote.com. Voting is open from now through next Thursday. You can also pre-order the album through that site, which I just did!! If you do it by March 24th, they'll include your name somewhere in the album's packaging. The album comes out on May 24th. Yippeee!!
Brad Womak proposed to Emily Maynard last night on the season finale of "The Bachelor". She beat out Chantal O'Brien, who was told by Brad, "I just have stronger feelings for someone else." But it wasn't all roses at the live episode of "After the Final Rose" episode immediately following the finale that was filmed months ago. Emily and Brad admitted that they had broken up at one point. And while they are not ready to walk down the isle yet, they do remain an engaged couple. Last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" they announced that Ashley Hebert will be "The Bachelorette" starting May 23rd.
Jewel just announced in January that she was pregnant with her first child, and on Friday, she had her car smashed by a volunteer fire engine in Texas. Luckily, she was okay, and she went to Twitter to reveal why: "1 thing I do know is my car saved my & baby's life-definitely going 2 get another Cadillac SRX! It absorbed all the damage & kept me safe!" This photo of the damage shows just how lucky Jewel was.
Could Ne-Yo already have another baby on the way?Â Ne-Yo and âfriendâ Monyetta Shaw are expecting another child in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Monyetta is referred to as a âfriendâ because Ne-Yo notoriously said in an interview last year: âI have a friend, not a girlfriend. Sheâs carrying my child but knows I canât commit. She doesnât mind other women.â If Monyetta turns out to be pregnant four months after giving birth to Ne-Yoâs first child, I'd say itâs pretty clear the two are still very friendly.
Justin Bieber had to leave his luxury suite in Liverpool and was forced to sleep on his tour bus because security caught two teenage girls rummaging around his hotel room. They were disguised as housekeepers in uniforms and it worked! Someone let them into the Bieb's room. After taking several pictures, security found them and had them removed from the hotel.
At the SXSW (South by Southwest) premiere of his new film, Jake Gyllenhaal got in a scuffle with a fan who tried to take pictures of him in the bathroom. Jake was apparently trying to take care of his business and a guy literally tried to take a picture of his junk! Twitter exploded with different accounts, but they all had the same theme! Jake grabbed the dude mid-photo, threw him against the wall and was like, âare we really gonna do this right now?ââ Another Twitter account said, âGuy just tried to take Jake Gyllenhaalâs picture while he was taking a leak. Cops came. Brouhaha ensued.â
Miley Cyrus weent ballistic yesterday on a photographer who pushed past her mom to get a better angle on her. Miley and Tish were leaving a joint called the California Chicken Cafe when the guy tried to dart around Tish to get Miley's picture. There was apparently some contact made, although it's hard to tell just how hard the guy hit her.Â But that set Miley off. She got right in the guy's face and shouted, "Are you serious? You just hit my mom with your camera! You just ran into my mom with your camera. Don't you ever do that again. You just almost hurt my mom. Don't you ever even think about it!" The whole time, the guy kept saying, "I would never disrespect your mom!"
Â Â Ne-Yo lost a fan earlier this week. And that fan was Snooki from "Jersey Shore". On Monday, Ne-Yo expressed his disdain over "Rolling Stone's" decision to put Snooki on the cover of their current issue. He Tweeted, "Wow. Snooki is on the cover of 'Rolling Stone' magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious.) No disrespect to Snooki, I don't know her, but damn 'Rolling Stone'? REALLY? REALLY! I guess I feel a rant coming on, but at the sake of sounding like I'm complaining or even hating, Imma chill. I got y'all. New album on the way." The next day, Snooki responded, "Ne-Yo's mad that I got the cover of 'Rolling Stone'? Hm, you lost a loyal fan. What a buzz-kill. #Sorry." Ne-Yo wasn't exactly crushed to hear that. He said, "I think I'll be all right." By the way, Ne-Yo wasn't alone. Pink also rolled her eyes at the cover, Tweeting, "Dear 'Rolling Stone', Really?"
He may be co-owner of the New Jersey Nets, but Jay-Z is helping to raise money for a childrenâs charity by auctioning off a night out with him at an upcoming home game by his hometown New York Knicks. The package, worth an estimated $20,000, will land the highest bidder and a friend an evening with Jigga at Madison Square Garden. You have untilÂ March 30 to place yourÂ bid on the CharityBuzz.com sale. All profits will benefit the Big Appleâs Stephen Gaynor School, which aids kids with learning disabilities.
Lindsay Lohan might not have to decide her fate in court today after all. We discovered that when Lindsay shows up at the courthouse, she'll be granted a continuance, so that her attorney can keep on working out a deal. As far as we know, the judge still hasn't backed off his position that any deal will definitely involve jail time. Lindsay's attorney is probably haggling over just how much jail time she'd get. Earlier yesterday, everybody was reporting that Lindsay had decided not to take a deal.
Britney Spears' former bodyguard, the same one who filed a sexual harassment suit last year, claims he will leak nude photos of her in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Will leak it?Â Do it man! Although, most of you on Facebook this morning want nothing to do with those pictures. Fernando Flores apparently has some explicit naked shots of Britney she took and sent to his cell phone. Last year, Flores filed a $14.5 million sexual harassment suit against Britney, claiming she has made "repeated, unwanted sexual advances and harassment." He also claimed she abused her sons by hitting them with his belt. The Department of Children and Family Services investigated the allegations and found that there was no evidence to support it. Now, Flores has reportedly told his friends that he will be releasing "embarrassing nude pictures" of the singer that she sent him from her mobile phone, hoping that the alleged photo evidence will help him win the case.
Two more Britney Spears songs have leaked. Again. The songs are called "(Drop Dead) Beautiful" and "Inside Out", and they will both be on Britney's new album, "Femme Fatale" hitting stores on March 29th.
Britney Spears - "(Drop Dead) Beautiful"
Britney Spears - "Inside Out"Michaele Salahi has been kicked off "Celebrity Rehab." She was asked to leave because she has "no addiction" and thus had "no reason to be there." Her husband, Tareq, tod media last weekend that her only real addiction was "probably to chocolate."
Got Charlie Sheen overload? Now there is a software that edits him out of Web pages. "Tinted Sheen" deletes Sheen's name and blocks out his image. The browser plug-ins are available for download HERE.
In todayâs Big Fat Rumor of the Day, a rock solid insider at Young Money says that Nicki Minaj is pregnant. According to the insider, rumors began swirling last month when Nicki asked for a "reduced schedule." But on Friday, she called a closed-door meeting with all the Young Money top brass and told them she was pregnant. The insider explained, "No one thought that she and her man Sasafrass (Safarree) would be that dumb. Her career just popped off and now she's going to do this."
Â Ke$ha will be pouring out more than buckets of glitter on her crowd on her upcoming âGet Sleazyâ tour. She was just signed on as the official face of Lifestyles condoms. Yes, sheâs the face of Lifestyles, as in her beautiful mug will be plastered on thousands of condom wrappers with the hope of encouraging fans to play it safe if they decide to ahem...get sleazy after one of her concerts. These condoms will be tossed out at her concert. What a deal.
It finally happened yesterday:Â Warner Brothers fired Charlie Sheen, meaning that unless they have a change of heart, his time on "Two and a Half Men" is over. They did not say anything about cancellation. Which means we'll have to wait to see who might replace Charlie if the show goes on. In Charlie's world, he's still winning, of course. And he claims he's happy he was fired. Not surprisingly, Charlie had more to say. He told "Access Hollywood" that he was informed via text. He said, "These guys are such yellow cockroaches that they didn't even have the decency to call me. It's just deplorable and they should be ashamed of themselves!" He added that what Warner Brothers did was, "the work of silly infants." Charlie was also spotted at the top of the Live Nation building in Beverly Hills, wielding a huge machete. Live Nation is a major concert promoter and there's word going around that Charlie is thinking about doing a live tour, kind of like what Conan O'Brien did when he left NBC.
It's time to play, 'Whose Tweet is This?' "Hey Charlie Sheen. I just played the Grand Ole Opry. Now who's winning, boy?!!" And the Tweet belongs to Blake Shelton. He posted it on Friday, after finishing his performance at the Opry. Blake was just announced asÂ the fourth musician/coach/judge on NBC's "The Voice". The other three are ChristinaAguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine from Maroon 5. The show will debut on April 26th. Blake said, "I'm not sure 'The Voice' knows what they signed on for by bringing me on the show. I know this for sure; Christina, Cee Lo, Adam and I are going to have a blast and I am extremely excited to be part of a show that recognizes true vocal talent."
EXCLUSIVE NEW VIDEO: Lindsay Lohan Surveillance Footage
Naked nudie time!! If you haven't seen the picture of Chris Brown in all his glory yet, two things: first of all, you're missing out. Wow. And secondly, I can't tell you where to find it cause I'd rather not lose his job over his massive accidental leak. Let's talk about that. Was it an accident? On Saturday, he Tweeted, "Another day!! Another lesson! Another party!! I'm so thankful to have the support of my fans with my music! Love." It's not clear if he was referring to the photo. But he also Tweeted and then deleted another post that said, "WTF!!! Here we go!!!" Other than that, there's been no word from Chris or his camp. It's one of those self-shot photos, with Chris using his phone to snap the picture in a mirror. It was supposedly leaked by an ex-girlfriend. Do you believe that? It's probably worth mentioning that "F.A.M.E" hits stores March 22nd.
Justin Bieber's movie "Never Say Never" counts as a documentary and now, it's the third-hightest-grossing documentary of all time. It's behind only Michael Moore's"Fahrenheit 911" and "March of the Penguins" which made more than $77 million. ("Never Say Never" did take one record away from "Fahrenheit" - Best opening weekend for a documentary. Justin opened with $29.5 million, while "Fahrenheit" took in $23 million.) But here's the real kicker, people were actually buzzing about "Never Say Never" at various Academy Awards after-parties. In other words, Justin's movie could be up for an Oscar next year in the 2012 Academy Awards. In other Bieber news, his managers want to make sure he gets it right when out in public. They've hired a ton of coaches to help with singing, fashion, swagger, dancing, interviews, and even flirting. They credit themselves with his hook-up with Selena Gomez.
I imagine it'd be pretty cool to have a celebrity follow you on Twitter. Especially if it's Charlie Sheen that's following you. But sometimes, it's not so cool. Sarah Hyland is 20 years old, she plays teenager Haley Dunphy on "Modern Family". She recently Tweeted, "FYI, I've never met @charliesheen in my LIFE, and he's following me now? Really creeped out. Ew. #notwinning." It must have worked, because Charlie isn't following her anymore.
Beyonce wants to get you in shape. She's joined forces with First Lady Michelle Obama to help fight childhood obesity. Beyonce has re-written and re-recorded one of her hit songs for the "Let's Move! Flash Workout" campaign. She will also provide an instructional video demonstrating the dance/exercise routine, which will be distributed to participating schools.
Serena Williams' absence from tennis could stretch to almost a year after two new health scares - a blood clot in her lungs followed by a hematoma - have added to her injury woes. She was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism last week and later needed treatment for a hematoma. The 13-time Grand Slam champion hasn't played an official match since winning Wimbledon last July because of a foot injury she sustained at a restaurant. Her latest health problems have been "extremely hard, scary and disappointing," Williams said in a statement. "I am doing better. I'm at home now and working with my doctors to keep everything under control. I know I will be OK, but am praying and hoping this will all be behind me soon. She was treated at a Los Angeles hospital. "Thankfully everything was caught in time," her agents said in a statement. "With continued doctor visits to monitor her situation, she is recuperating at home under strict medical supervision."
It's official: Christina Aguilera will join Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine from Maroon 5 as a judge/coach on the NBC singing competition show, "The Voice". This is the show where the judges will have their backs turned to the contestants during the auditions, so they'll choose their talent based on their voice only, not their appearance. It debuts on April 26th with Carson Daly as the host.

Here is the new cast of "Celebrity Rehab" - Michael Lohan, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, Amy Fisher, Dwight (Doc) Gooden, Bai Ling and Jeremy Jackson. More will be added as we get closer to the premier date.
Charlie Sheen was on ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today" show and he even talkedÂ toÂ CNN on "Piers Morgan Tonight".Â I'm assuming he did it as a way of saying screw you to his own network, CBS. We already heard Charlie's now-famous quote from ABC about being on a drug called Charlie Sheen. Well, he described that drug a little further. He said, "Yeah, I'm on a drug, it's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available, because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body." But is Charlie going to relapse? No. Why? He says, "I blinked and I cured my brain. 'Can't' is the cancer of 'happen'. The Nike slogan doesn't say 'Just Try It.' Just do it, man." Here's another Sheen classic. The interviewer asks Charlie if he's bipolar. He replies, "Bipolar? I'm bi-winning. I win here and I win there, now what?" On "Today", Charlie said he'll return to "Two and a Half Men", but only for $3 million an episode. Charlie currently makes about $2 million, when you factor in syndication and other perks. He said, "Everybody thinks I should be, like, begging for my job back. And I'm just gonna forewarn them that it's gonna be everybody else who's gonna be begging me for their job back. At this point because of psychological distress, Oh my God, it's 3-mill an episode, take it or leave it." He added that he's currently underpaid adding, "I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitchin', a total frickin' rock star from Mars. One interview took place in Charlie's backyard. At one point, Charlie was asked where his twin boys were living. He pointed to the house and said, "They're in there somewhere." Asked who's raising them, he said, "Everybody here is parenting the kids. They're running into walls, but they're screaming 'Da-Da' when they do it." Warner Brothers has announced that they'll pay the "Two and a Half Men" crew for four of the eight episodes that were canceled this season. And Charlie is taking credit for it. He says, "Clearly my efforts are paying off." But he added that he won't stop until they're paid for all eight. Here are a couple of those interview if you feel like watching the train wreck.
ABC officially announced the cast of the next season of "Dancing with the Stars" during last night's episode of "The Bachelor". Here's your cast for the 12th season that begins Monday, March 21st:

They may not have walked away with an Oscar, but losers didn't leave the Academy Awards empty-handed. A $23,000 consolation gift bag was distributed to nominees who didn't win. Included arean orbital space flight and a vacation at an underwater spa in the Maldives. I'd rather lose, wouldn't you? Well Anne Hathaway may not have had wonderful reviews as host, but feel too bad for her. She got paid $750,000 to wear Tiffany & Co. jewelry on Sunday night while hosting the Oscars. Gwyneth Paltrow is said to have made $500,000 for wearing earrings, a brooch and a ring from the Louis Vuitton's L'Ame du Voyage collection.
Rihanna and Ciara had some words over the weekend. They weren't too kind either. It all began when Ciara dissed Rihanna during an appearance on E!'s "Fashion Police" with Joan Rivers.Â Ciara said, "I ran into her recently at a party. She wasn't the nicest. It's crazy, because I've always loved and respected what she's done in fashion. It wasn't the most pleasant run-in." Rihanna responded on Twitter saying, "My bad Ci, did I forget to tip you?Â How rude of me. You gangsta huh? Ha." Then Ciara shot back: "Trust me Rihanna you don't want to see me on or off the stage." To which Rihanna said, "Good luck with bookin' that stage you speak of." Ciara responded to that with: "Pure comedy." At this point, Rihanna felt that it'd gone far enough, and offered an olive branch. She said, "Ciara baby, I love you girl! You hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I'm heartbroken! That's why I retaliated this way! So sorry!Â Let's make up." And Ciara agreed, "Ri, u know it's always been love since day 1!Â Doing shows and everything. You threw me off in that party! Apology accepted. Let's chat in person." Ciara opened for Rihanna on her Good Girl Gone Bad Tour in 2007.
Chris Brown has responded to the new pictures that hit the Internet last week featuring Rihanna's brutal injuries after Chris beat her in February of 2009. He commented on Twitter, but all but one of the Tweets have since been deleted. He said, "It's ironic how 'somebody' put this out right around my album time! Wow! I guess that's supposed to be a strategic chess move. Unbelievable. The Devil is always busy!! But when u have a destiny, nothing or no one can stop what God has planned! The beauty is inside you!!! Don't let em bring you down!!!!! Beautiful people!" That last line is the only one still on his Twitter. Chris' next album, "F.A.M.E." doesn't come out until March 18th. Meanwhile, Chris is apparently trying to draw a different kind of attention to himself, by dyeing his hair blond. Gives a whole new meaning to his caption/song title: "Look at me now." What do you think?
Taylor Swift is making the rounds on "Glee". Taylor and Chord Overstreet (Sam) went to the L.A. Kings hockey game last Thursday night. She allegedly called him to ask about writing a song together. Or maybe she just wants to date him, have him dump her, then write a song about him. Anyhoo, Chord was recently seen getting all touchy-feely with co-star Naya Rivera (Santana)Â at a club, not to mention on the show. And Taylor dated another one of his co-stars, Cory Monteith (Finn) early last year.

Here are the top 24 contestants for this season of "American Idol. Naima Adedapo, Haley Reinhart, Clint Jun Gamboa, Paul McDonald, Ashthon Jones, Karen Rodriguez, Robbie Rosen, Julie Zorrilla, Tim Halperin, Scotty McCreery, Tatynisa Wilson, Jovany Barreto, Lauren Turner, Rachel Zevita, Kendra Chantelle, Jordan Dorsey, Lauren Alaina, Stefano Langone, Jacob Lusk, Pia Toscano, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Thia Megia and Brett Loewenstern. The semi-finals start next week, on Tuesday. And just a day after hearing about it, the battle is already over. Yesterday, Fox confirmed that beginning Tuesday, "Idol" viewers can use their Facebook accounts to log onto AmericanIdol.com and vote online. Yes, there's an extra Tuesday episode next week. You'll be able to vote up to 50 times that way. Plus, phone and text voting will continue as usual.
The remainder of this season's "Two and a Half Men" has been canceled, after Charlie Sheen lit into show creator Chuck Lorre in a radio interview yesterday. Here's the official statement, "Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of "Two and a Half Men" for the remainder of the season." Charlie was all over the place in the interview and pretty much completely off the deep end. Charlie talked about how his life is so much better than those who are trying to tear him down. We assume he includes Chuck Lorre here, "I'm so tired of pretending like my life isn't perfect and bitchin' and just winning every second, and I'm not perfect and bitchin' and just delivering the goods at every frickin' turn. Look what I'm dealing with man, I'm dealing with fools and trolls. I don't have time for these clowns. I don't have time for their judgment and their stupidity. And, you know, they lay down with their ugly wives in front of their ugly children and just look at their loser lives. And then they look at me and they say, 'I can't process it.' Well no, and you never will. Stop trying. Just sit back and enjoy the show." Wow. We'll be surprised if that show comes back at all. Too bad, guess we'll have to live thru syndication.
Eminem, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber have become the most popular performers on the Internet. At least as far as social networking goes. Eminem is behind both Lady Gaga and Justin in some categories like Twitter followers and YouTube plays, but he has them both beat in Facebook "Likes." Eminem now has over 28,945,000 "likes," which makes him the most "liked" living artist on Facebook. Lady Gaga was the previous leader before Eminem passed her this week. She's now in second with over 28,906,000 "likes." If you count dead artists too, Michael Jackson would be #1, with 29.2 million "likes."
If Lindsay Lohan was hoping for mercy yesterday in her felony theft case, she left the courthouse sadly disappointed. The judge told Lindsay that any deal in which she pleads guilty or no contest will result in jail time. And that's not negotiable. Judge Keith Schwartz said, "This case does involve jail time. Period. If you plead in front of me, if this case is resolved in front of me, you are going to jail. Period." He went on to say, "Now there may be an issue as to the amount of time you go, of course, but if the case settles here, I don't want you under any apprehension. You will be going to jail." He told Lindsay that if she settles the case with him, he'll make her get therapy and a reliable sponsor and that she's not getting any special treatment, "You will be treated exactly the same as anyone else, no better, no worse. That's very important to me." If Lindsay decides to fight the charges, the case will be heard by a different judge. Lindsay will have to make that decision at her next hearing on March 10th.
"American Idol" and Simon Cowell's "X Factor" won't only be competing for similar talent and viewers, they're also now competing to be the first competition show to have online voting through Facebook. Simon is working on a deal with Facebook that would allow them to have an online voting system in place for "X Factor's" first season, which premieres this fall. Viewers would have the option of somehow voting on their own Facebook page. Facebook voting would be reserved for the final rounds. This is in addition to the phone and text voting, which would still be available. But there's a chance it won't happen, if it's not possible for the "details and security issues" to be worked out in time. "Idol" would premiere the following winter which means they might have a little extra time to swoop in and do the Facebook thing first. Maybe. But "Entertainment Weekly" claims "Idol" IS chasing Facebook voting and has been working on a system. In fact, they say "Idol" plans on making an announcement soon, and will debut Facebook voting soon. Is that "soon" as in this season? No. It's "soon" as in Tuesday!
Producers for NBCâs upcoming talent competition âThe Voiceâ are in in talks with Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Maroon 5âs Adam Levine about joining the show. Unlike âAmerican Idolâ and âThe X Factor,â this competitionâs audition round has judges sitting with their backs to the singers so theyâre evaluating only the personâs voice. If one of the four "coaches" selects a singer, the chair spins around and brings judge and singer face to face. From there, each judge/coach forms a team of singers who will face off internally until only the best remain. Viewers start voting in the final stages, when members of different teams square off against each other. No one has signed a contract yet, but NBC is reportedly hoping to announce at least some of the judging panel within the next week or so. Carson Daly will host of âThe Voice,â which is scheduled to premiere sometime in the spring.
Kim Kardashian is on the verge of scoring the role of a lifetime. She'd play opposite John Travolta as John Gotti's daughter-in-law in the new biopic. She recently met with executive producers to discuss playing Kim Gotti. Sheâs the front-runner for the role.
Charlie Sheen took off for the Bahamas on a private jet yesterday, and he had three women with him. None of which were drug counselors or rehab coaches. One of them was that girl he's been running around with lately named Natalie Kenly. Then there's his adult film star friend, Bree Olson. And finally, his ex-wife Brooke Mueller. Yes, Brooke is back in the picture. One source said that she even moved back in with Charlie a few days ago along with their twin boys and the nannies after he made the public request to have both ex's and his two kids with each move into a home in his gated community. No word yet from Denise Richards on that so far by the way. But Brooke's dad says she's not in Charlie's house permanently. Just until Charlie buys the house he promised Brooke and the kids. What everybody's going to wonder now is if Charlie is off the wagon again. And it sounds like he might be. A source says, "Charlie is back to his old self, and that's not a good thing. So much for rehab at home. At this point, that's a joke." Charlie is expected back on the set of "Two and a Half Men" on Tuesday.
Chris Brown is allowed to hang out with Rihanna again. Yesterday, a judge reduced the restraining order Rihanna had against Chris to a "level one", which means he's allowed to be in contact with her, but he can't annoy, harass or, obviously, physically assault her. (It was two years ago this month that Brown viciously attacked Rihanna the night before the Grammys). It was actually Rihanna's attorney who gave the court permission to lighten the protection order, which is scheduled to remain in place until 2014.
Speaking of Rihanna, she is one half of today's Hot Couple Alert. RiRi met Colin Farrell on a British talk show just before Christmas. And ever since then, she has been sending Colin some naughty texts. It sounds like there's a really good chance they're going to hook it up soon! A source says, "Colin was taken aback by some of the texts. He thinks he might well be in there. They're both single, so why not?" Rihanna and L.A. Dodger Matt Kemp reportedly broke up around the same time she met Colin.
Have you seen Britney Spears' new video for "Hold It Against Me" yet? Maybe you noticed like Nick and I did that there are way too many product mentions? Well, it sounds like it was a lucrative move, because she supposedly raked in half-a-million dollars from it. The most obvious product placement in the video is for the dating site PlentyOfFish.com. A source says the site shelled out "six figures" to be featured and it may have been worth it, because the site has had a 20% spike in traffic since the video premiered. Sony, Make Up Forever cosmetics and Britney's Radiance perfume were also featured in the video,Â but not as gratuitously as PlentyOfFish.
The next cast of "Dancing With the Stars" will be revealed next Monday night during the overnight date episode of "The Bachelor" on ABC. The media has released its list of rumored celebrity dancers: Wendy Williams, Chris Jericho, Christine O'Donnell, Snooki, Al Sharpton, Joan Rivers, Chad Michael Murray, and Shelly Long. They say that Brett Favre is now considered a long-shot.
Too often we share stories of so-and-so that got busted for drugs and guns or hauled off to rehab. Well this time Plies did another good deed. He brought up a young fan to celebrate her birthday (she finally arrives on stage at 1:07). He shouts her out and puts his chain around her neck and then gives her his bracelet. But thatâs not where it ends. Later in the video, she said she wanted a Nintendo DSI for her birthday and at 4:08, Plies hands her $10,000 in cash to buy 50 DSI games!! Unbelievable!
Hot Couple Alert! It looks like Mr. Shu, aka the playboy from "Glee" is what the ladies want these days. First, he was allegedly dating Cameron Diaz. Now, he's rumored to be dating Olivia Munn. She's on the new NBC show, "Perfect Couples." They were holding hands and kissing at the Rangers / Flyers hockey game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. You would also know Olivia from G4's "Attack of the Show", "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and we've heard that she is currently divorcing her husband.
Lindsay Lohan was turned away from a party Friday night hosted by L.A. Laker Pau Gasol because she's too much trouble. A source says, "The guest list was pretty specific, so there wasn't much leniency. But if I'm being honest Lindsay is seen as too much trouble and that's the reason she wasn't allowed in. If it had been someone else with a better reputation there is no doubt they would have made an exception." The party was at a hotel bar and the source says Lindsay started acting strangely after getting rejected, "She headed for the elevators, rode them up and down for about ten minutes before going down to the parking garage and heading out that way. She didn't make a fuss, but she definitely looked shocked that she wasn't being welcomed in."
Foxy Brown showed up too late to perform at a fashion show after-party in New York last Wednesday. The show was already over. She locked herself in the bathroom and refused to come out. Security eventually had to physically remove her from the building.
Is anyone actually interested in a "Sex and the City 3"? Well, Sarah Jessica Parker is. She wants to bring Carrie Bradshaw and her friends back for another round. But maybe not right away. She says, "I think there's one more story to tell. I know there is. But maybe not now. Maybe in five years, you know?" One thing Sarah would not like to see is a "Sex and the City" prequel. There's been talk of doing one with the girls in their 20s and with Blake Lively as Carrie Bradshaw. Sarah says, "I don't think we can pretend to go back. It's creating two histories. It's like, 'Oh I didn't know that about Carrie Bradshaw.'"
People tend to think that every couple on "Dancing with the Stars" is secretly doingÂ the nastyÂ behind the scenes. Usually they're not. Sometimes they are. Remember when Cheryl Burke was paired up with NFL star Chad Ochocinco -er Chad Johnson last year? Well, Chad has always said nothing happened, but Cheryl says, "We didn't date. I wouldn't call that dating. We maybe had a little bit of a fling. I wouldn't take it to that word dating." Cheryl explains why it didn't go any further, "He was never really available to me. I've had that pattern of dating unavailable men in my life and it was hard to resist, obviously, but it was still something I knew from other relationships."
Some guy named Paz went on Facebook, claiming that he stole Paris Hilton's birthday cake. He said, "I woke up this morning with a $2000 birthday cake in my living room." Paz claims he got into Paris' recent 30th birthday party through a friend who was invited. He saw that there were two cakes, one of which was mostly for show. He asked a waiter what was going to happen to it, and was told it would probably be thrown out. He says, "It was at this inebriated moment I decided no one was going to waste $2000 worth of anything on my watch." So he picked it up and just walked out of the party with it.
That's what happened yesterday, when Lady Gaga showed up on "Good Morning America" wearing what she described as, "a latex condom-inspired outfit." She did it to raise awareness for AIDS. She explained, "Today I really wanted to, head-to-toe, be representative of what we women and people all over the world need to be concerned about, which is the leading cause of death in women all around the world, which is HIV. Most importantly, I want to get people started at home, at a younger age with their children, talking about HIV, talking about AIDS, talking about safe sex." Lady Gaga added that she hopes to raise $50 million or AIDS awareness this year.
Waka Flocka Flame was questioned after a shootout in Charlotte, North Carolina, yesterday. Waka was at a place called the Car Stereo Warehouse getting the sound system in his tour bus pimped out. Two vehicles rolled up to the parking lot at around 4:00 P.M. and at least one of them opened fire on the tour bus. Waka's entourage retaliated by returning fire. One person was shot in the shoulder, and was taken to the hospital with "non-life-threatening injuries." That person's identity was not released, but it wasn't Waka. Waka's publicist said, "His bus was shot four times, and security followed appropriate protocol and returned fire. Waka is fine and so is his team." No charges have been filed yet, and police aren't sureÂ why all this went down.
Jessica Alba is having another baby. It'll be the second child for Jessica and husband Cash Warren. They have a daughter named Honor who's 2 and a half. Jessica made the announcement on Facebook yesterday morning. She said, "I thought I'd drop by to let you all in on some exciting news. Honor is going to be a Big Sister! Cash and I are thrilled and wanted to share the news directly with you so you didn't hear about it somewhere else." There's no word on the due date or the sex of the baby. However, we did hear that Natalie Portman is having a baby boy. Please buy accordingly.
It's not over for Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj. On Tuesday, Lil Kim dropped a mixtape called "Black Friday". The title is an obvious jab at Nicki's "Pink Friday" and the cover featured an image of Nicki decapitated. And, instead of releasing the mixtape for free, Lil Kim charged $10 for it and she's claiming that she sold 113,000 copies in the first 28 hours. Nicki has responded to all this on Twitter, and here's the real quote (otherwise it just wouldn't be justified): "Bwaahhhhahhahahahahahahhahahhhaaahhhhhaaahahahahhhaha!!!!!!!! *lifeless* *leaves on stretcher* *cant go on*. The devil is a liar." Then Kim responded: "#TwitterBeef. This is not beef. Real beef is when someone gets shot 5 minutes later. CHILD PLEASE!!! #TooManyTwitterGangstas #Team Lil Kim LEGO." Okay, Nicki, it's your move.
Jenni J-Woww" Farley from "Jersey Shore" has turned down "Playboy" before. But that doesn't mean she doesn't want to pose for them. In fact, she plans to eventually. She says, "I do feel like it's a strong thing for women to do. And as long as they cover up certain parts, I'm good. You see my boobs out half the time anyway." There's a reason J-Woww turned "Playboy" down before: An 8-year-old girl who approached her at Starbucks. J-Woww says, "The girl goes, 'I look up to you. I want to be a graphic designer just like you. I want to make cartoon characters like you do.' So I was like, There's my answer! I want kids to look up to me for college rather than 'Playboy'."
In other "Jersey Shore" news, former cast memeber Angelina Pivarnick and her boyfriend David Kovacs are engaged. He popped the question Wednesday at a fashion show during New York Fashion Week. She says, "He treats me with respect. He's like a real gentleman. He doesn't treat me like sh**." That's your lesson, girls, if a guy DOESN'T treat you like crap, then by all means, marry him. Sheesh!
Former "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz got into a little trouble over the weekend. Frankie and his girlfriend Elycia Turnbow got into a heated argument over, "prior relationships." She told police that Frankie held a gun to his head, possibly with the intent of committing suicide. After Frankie came back from the hospital later that night, they started fighting again. Elycia says Frankie, "punched her in the back of the head, and threw her into a wall." At this point, she called the cops. When they showed up, Frankie denied putting the gun to his head. He told them, "I grabbed the case, but not the gun, it isn't even loaded." But police did find the gun, and it was loaded. They took it. Frankie also told them that the only reason he went to the hospital was because he fell and hit his head while Turnbow was yelling at him. As for the assault, Frankie said he was only defending himself because she had attacked himand that she fell down during the chaos. He said he wouldn't assault her because, "I love her too much. She is the woman I want to marry." Police didn't arrest anyone, but they said someone might get locked up if they had to come back. Yesterday, Frankie's rep issued a statement saying Frankie and Elycia are still together and "moving forward with their lives and with their relationship."
Remember early last month at Jeremy Rennerâs 40th birthday party when we read that Christina Aguilera had passed out in his bed because she had a little too much to drink? Jeremy stopped by Jimmy Kimmelâs show last night (it hasn't been posted yet) to discuss the details of his birthday party. He confirmed that Christina was there butÂ laughed off the fact that she was wasted in his bed. He claimed they were eating cookies and milk. Liar.
In Lady Gaga's recent interviews she's been claiming that she spent three days in the egg thing she was in when she arrived at the Grammys. She said, "I was in there for about 72 hours. It was a very creative experience. It was time for me to really prepare and think about the meaning of "Born This Way" and get prepared for the performance. I really wanted to be born on stage. The creative vessel was helpful for me to stay focused. We had it backstage so that I was able to really stay in this sort of creative, embryonic incubation. I'm so passionate about this record and the meaning of the album." She also said that the "vessel" was "temperature controlled." By the way, Lady Gaga has also announced that her shows at Madison Square Garden next week will be taped for an upcoming HBO special. It'll air on May 7th, a few weeks before "Born This Way" hits stores on May 23rd.
In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, a person close to Jay-Z says that Jay and Beyonce are taking trial separation. According to the friend, they have been at odds for the last year. "The biggest thing they argue about is about kids, Jay Z wants them and Beyonce doesn't. It's all about her career, and she doesn't want to slow down." Jigga is so adamant about having kids, that he just signed a lease for a Los Angeles mansion - without his wife!!! The insider claims, "For now Jay Z's going to be staying in LA. Beyonce will be in NY. The hope is that with the time apart, they will decide to either have kids, or go their separate ways." This guy isnât the only one reporting it either. According to multiple guests on Saturday's RocNation lunch, there was "definitely something wrong" between Jay Z and Beyonce. As one celeb puts it, "They didn't even look each other in the eye."
Â Â Charlie Sheen called in for a surprise interview and it looks like his bosses at "Two and a Half Men" can't be too happy about it, because he didn't hold back. Charlie said, "I went back to work and was banging on the stage door, 'Hello, where is everybody?' I don't know what happened, I guess they're closed." He added, "Nobody told me. I just figured, you know, supposed to be back at work, 'cuz I'm ready We're on forced hiatus, they said, 'You get ready, and we'll get ready,' and I got ready and went back, nobody's there. He also hinted that the producers have wanted to get rid of him before. "That was clearly revealed when they had to bring me back this year. I'm here and I'm ready, they're not. Bring it." Asked when production might start again, Charlie said, "August of 2014 at this pace."
Â Â Lady Gaga has responded to the accusations that her new song "Born This Way" rips off Madonna's song "Express Yourself", which came out in 1989. Last night, she told Jay Leno, "There is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally." Madonna never commented on this publicly, but someone did post a video of Madonna performing "Express Yourself" on her official YouTube page the day the "controversy" broke out. But Lady Gaga said she heard from her, and Madonna is cool with it. She said, "Well, the good news is that I got an e-mail from her people and her, sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single and if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be."
Â Â Eva Longoria won't admit she's dating Penelope Cruz's little brother Eduardo. But she doesn't have to. Eduardo gave the game away by getting Eva's name tattooed on his arm. It's right above the ship on his left bicep.
Friday night during Usher's pre-Grammy party, Jamie Foxx got into a physical fight with three men. Jamie allegedly "got jumped" by three individuals. The fight lasted only about a minute, before security broke it up. No one was arrested or even thrown out of the event. No charges have been filed.
Â Charlie Sheen got a text messages from one of his adult movie star friends, Kacey Jordan. She says she's pregnant. The message also said she doesn't think it's his since he used protection. Kacey plans to terminate the pregnancy in the next few days. Charlie never replied back. Charlie has also been clean since his party two weeks ago. He has passed two drug tests since he began his in-home rehab. He has a team of addiction specialists working with him at his home. CBS and producers of his show will decide when he can return.
The day after the "Grammys" is as good a time as any to talk about a Milli Vanilli movie. That's because Milli Vanilli are the only act in history to have a Grammy revoked. Milli Vanilli were a late '80s singing duo or so we thought. Turns out they didn't actually sing their own songs which included "Blame It on the Rain" and "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You". In 1990, they won the Grammy for Best New Artist. But it was taken from them when it was revealed that Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan didn't actually sing the songs on their debut album. They tried to make a comeback using their own voices, but nobody cared. Rob fell under the spell of drugs, alcohol and petty crime and in 1998, he was found dead of an overdose in a hotel room in Germany. Long story short, there's a movie about their story in the works. It's got the full support of Morvan and the Pilatus estate. I'll let you know more when I find out anything.
Â Â Lady Antebellum was the big winner at last night's Grammys pulling down five awards, including Song of the Year and Record of the Year for "Need You Now". The same song winning both awards really legitimized David Letterman's joke, during a special Grammy Top 10 about nobody knowing the difference between the two categories. Arcade Fire won the big award, Album of the Year, for "The Suburbs".Eminem started the night with 10 nominations, but only won two Grammys for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Solo Performance. The first jazz artist to ever win Best New Artist went to Esperanza Spalding, beating out Justin Bieber, Florence and the Machine, Drake and Mumford & Sons. Jay-Z, John Legend and Lady Gaga each won three awards. Gaga tried to be all edgy and arty, as usual by being carried into the Grammys inside an egg. Here are the 2011 Grammy Winners:

Rihanna has a new man in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. He's not an actor or an athlete, but he is a musician. Rihanna is dating Travis Barker, the drummer from Blink-182. They have been friends for a while and even went on a few dates years ago. This new relationship is more than just friends now though. They are doing a photo shoot together and Rihanna will be in his new video "Can A Drummer Get Some" which films in L.A. next week.
It was two years ago this month that Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna the night before the "Grammys". Things seem to be lightening up. Rihanna has requested that her protection order against Chris be scaled back so that he can be around her, as long as he doesn't annoy or harass or touch her. Her request still has to be approved by the court, though. Not that it would have mattered this weekend. Chris isn't going to this Sunday's "Grammys" due to prior commitments. Rihanna is scheduled to perform. However, we read yesterday that Rihanna is fighting a pretty bad case of the flu. But she hasn't backed out of the "Grammys" yet.
Heidi Montag makes her big screen debut in the new romantic comedy âJust Go With Itâ starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, but she didn't attend the premiere this week because she says Jennifer had her banned from the red carpet. Heidi told Us Weekly: "I was so excited! This is the first movie I've ever been in and I can't walk the red carpet because Jennifer Aniston decided I was 'too polarizing.'" Heidi claims that she struck a deal with producers to stay away from other promotional events but it was Jen who banned her from the premiere. Jen's rep denies the story, saying: "We do not have anything to do with who gets invited, but besides that, Sony did invite Heidi to the premiere and did not get an rsvp from her." Now Heidi says that it was all a big misunderstanding. "I read that Jennifer had banned me from the premiere, but I know now that it wasn't true," Heidi said, "It never really made sense to me because Jennifer is such a sweetheart and she even commented before on a red carpet about how interesting and fun it was to have me in the movie." So why didn't Heidi walk the red carpet with the rest of the film's stars on Tuesday night? "I got my invite and I would have loved to be there, but I had to be Los Angeles with my dogs," Montag explained. "I was honored to be a part of such a great movie and I apologize to Jennifer and Sony for this big misunderstanding. Go see the movie this weekend! It's fantastic!"
ABC plans to announce the new of "Dancing With the Stars" on February 28 during an episode of "The Bachelor." Here is a list of the rumored celebrities said to be joining the cast. Brett Favre, Lindsay Lohan, Brooke Mueller, Christine O'Donnell, and Ashlee Simpson. Season 12 begins on March 21st.
Brad Womak is currently in the midst of his second run on "The Bachelor", after famously rejecting both his final selections during his first go around. That was season 11, when he decided he didn't want either DeAnna or Jenni. But a real-life woman named Laurel Kagay tells "Us Magazine" that Brad proposed to her last summer "just weeks" before leaving to film the current season of "The Bachelor". This wasn't the first time she said "no". Laurel says she's been dating Brad on-and-off for the past eight years, and he has asked her to marry him "countless" times. Laurel says she decided to make this public because, "I'm sure the girl he picked would want to know that he was proposing to another woman right before he started taping the show. I would want to know." It sounds like he actually choses one of them this time. Earlier this season, Brad told E! Online, "When I say I'm in love, I mean it with every bone in my body. I am happier than I've been in 10, 15 years. Not a single regret. I'm very much in love." He added that the chances are, "damn good" that he'll be married next year at this time.
Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Pete Wentz, after just two and a half years of marriage. They issued a statement saying all the usual things, like how this was a "difficult decision", but they "remain friends" and will continue to make raising their son their "number one priority." Ashlee is seeking spousal support and primary custody of their 2-year-old son Bronx, with visitation for Pete. Obviously, Pete and Ashlee aren't going to come right out and tell us why they broke up. That's what anonymous sources are for. Unfortunately, they're kind of all over the map on this one. One source says Pete and Ashlee have just been, "growing apart for quite some time," and that the split was amicable. But another source says Pete started acting funny, "It's really all about Pete's erratic behavior. She really wanted out." There's no word what constituted "erratic behavior" in this case. Then there are sources that say tensions have been simmering for a while, because Ashlee made the decision to scale back on her showbiz career to be a mom, while Pete still wanted to be a rock star. Things came to a head this past summer, when Ashlee got hammered at a party and got into a verbal throwdown with Pete's ex, actress Michelle Trachtenberg. A source says, "Ashlee was reverting to drinking and going out, because she is sick and tired of her life. It's an outlet for her unhappiness, and Pete is getting fed up."
With Ashlee and Pete divorcing, could another couple be right behind them in line at the attorney's office? Newlyweds Katy Perry and Russel Brand are allegedly in trouble. Katy has been, "asking friends to recommend a marriage counselor." Katy and Russell got married in October, after just four months together.
If you ever have the pleasure of accompanying Lady Gaga to the bedroom, here's a tip for you:Â Don't call her "Gaga" in the heat of passion. She's not into that. Anderson Cooper interviewed Lady Gaga for a "60 Minutes" piece that airs this Sunday before the Grammys. And she said there are still people who refer to her by her given name, Stefani Germanotta. She added, "Especially in bed." Anderson said, "You don't want somebody yelling out 'Lady Gaga' in the throes of passion." And Gaga responded, "No, that would freak me out."
Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan are todayâs Hot Couple Alert. They have had a few âdatesâ together in just one weekend. First, when Jake went to see his sister and brother-in-law, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, in a play, and Carey just happened to be there, too. And then Jake went to hear a band play in Nashville, Carey just happened to be there, too! "They may have been together, but they aren't together," insisted a friend of Jakeâs. But isnât that kind of weird, being in New York, then Nashville in the same weekend, but only coincidentally? "Carey and Jake have a number of mutual friends. Besides, I'm pretty sure she's dating somebody else."
Â Â Heidi Montag is actively pursuing joining the cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Her husband Spencer Pratt wants to come along too and he confirmed that his people are going to be talking to the head honchos on Tuesday. âWe would move to Beverly Hills in a heartbeat. We would be psyched if this happened for us,â Spencer said. The show has been doing well in the ratings and Camille Grammer has not publicly said if she will return for season two. So watch out Camille, Lisa, Kyle and the rest of them, thereâs a new housewife who wants to move into Beverly Hills.
Lindsay Lohan will be charged with felony grand theft today, for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice, California. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says she's required to show up in court this afternoon for her arraignment. She could face several years in prison if convicted. The D.A. also wants Lindsay to spend six months in county jail for violating her probation. That's on top of any sentence she might receive for the alleged theft. Lindsay continues to maintain that the necklace was on loan. Surveillance video shows Lindsay wearing the necklace in the store. And paparazzi photos show her wearing it days later. Last week, after it was announced that police had obtained a warrant to search her home for it, the necklace was turned in to police by someone other than Lindsay. To add insult to injury, Lindsay is also being sued by a company called Tanning Vegas. They say she owes them more than $40,000 for tanning services rendered between 2007 and 2009.
On "Ellen" yesterday, Matthew Perry was there to promote his new show on ABC called "Mr. Sunshine." He claimed Justin Bieber uses "Chandler Bing" -his character from "Friends"- as a fake name when he checks into hotels. He added, "Gotta find a new one now, pal." PS...the Bieb is on "Ellen" today.
Talk about in-flight entertainment. B.o.B. offered a free performance to passengers on a Sunday morning Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to L.A. Not suprisingly, he performed "Airplanes". He was on his was to the Grammys which are on Sunday in L.A.
Lady Gaga has found that fame doesn't always open doors. "60 Minutes" followed her around for a segment they are doing on her. She went back to her old apartment in New York and the new occupant told her and the cameras to get lost. The segment will air before the 2011Â "Grammy Awards," which are on Sunday atÂ 8pm on CBS.
Studio executives are talking about bringing "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell's 2010 prequel "The Carrie Diaries" to life for the big screen. The movie would feature a new cast. "Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively would play Carrie Bradshaw. The movie would reveal how it all began.
If The Situation has anything to do with it, he'll be saying sayonara to "The Jersey Shore" and tv in general pretty soon. Believe it or not, Mike Sorrentino wants to be a movie star. "Hopefully by the end of the year I'll be in a movie," he said, "There's only so long you can rule the reality world." So when exactly is he planning to quit the MTV show? "Maybe another year or so of reality, and then I'm gonna graduate to movies. It's like Michael Jordan. There's only so long you can keep winning them rings."Â He said youâve gotta move on and try something different. He loves to be in front of the camera, thatâs evident, but he loves entertaining, so movies is definitely the next step."
Julia Roberts is being accused of having an affair with her "Eat Pray Love" costar Javier Bardem. By the way, Javier is married to Penelope Cruz. Sources say her marriage to Danny Moder is on the rocks with these new rumors. âThereâs talk around Hollywood that the reason Juliaâs singing Javierâs praises so much is because they hooked up. Behind closed doors, all is not well.â Another source is claiming that, âThe fire between Julia and Danny has seemed to have cooled. I think Javier came along and provided a fun distraction. Now the strain of battling the crazy rumors about her and Javier is pushing Julia and Danny to their breaking point.â No word on how this is affecting new parents, Javier and Penelope. They just had a baby in January.
Lindsay Lohan will be charged with a felony today for allegedly stealing that $2,500 necklace from a Venice, California jewelry store. That charge could land her a three-year prison term and let's not forget she's still on probation for her 2007 DUIs. Lindsay's attorney says, "We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press." Lindsay claims the necklace was loaned to her.
Shia LaBeouf got punched in a bar early Saturday morning during an altercation that may have started with a gay slur. It all went down at around 1:00 A.M. at aÂ bar called Mad Bull's Tavern in Sherman Oaks, California. Shia was there with about 14 friends, when trouble started on the outdoor patio. A guy started taunting Shia, and called him that gay slur we all hate. A witness says, "Shia shot back that he was going to 'kick his (effing) ass.' Shia then lunged but the other guy got the first punch in. He hit Shia hard in the face and split his lip." A cop just happened to be driving by at that moment and saw all the commotion. He called for backup, and, "suddenly nine cop cars were there." Shia was handcuffed, questioned and released. But apparently, the guy who punched him was not. The dude's name is Mark Mastro. And he says he initially approached Shia very respectfully, asking if he'd take a picture with his girlfriend. He says, "Shia didn't want anything to do with me. He said he just wanted to chill and refused to do photos. I walked away." Later that night they were on the patio, when they saw Shia and his crew leaving the bar. One of Mark's friends said, "What's up, Shia?" And Shia, who was trashed, replied, "Get the (eff) out of my way." That's when Mark said that Shia was a, "(Effing) (Saget)." It wasn't long before chaos ensued. Mark says, "He charged at me! I jumped over the patio fence onto the sidewalk to get away from him. But he kept coming after me. He was getting in my face, he was talking (crap), he was chest-bumping me." Mark leaves out the part where he actually clocks Shia, he just says that a bouncer put Shia in a headlock, and that's when police started arriving. He said Shia was cuffed and put in a cop car, but he wasn't, so he left. But the bar's owner says, "It was just boys being boys. Things got really out of hand and it didn't have to go down the way it did."
Lil Wayne is a Green Bay Packers fan and so naturally, he's dropped a pro-Packers track just in time for Sunday's Super Bowl. It's called "Green & Yellow". You can listen to it, and download it for free right HERE.Â Wayne proclaims "Green & Yellow" is "not a dis song," but it's a direct response to Wiz Khalifa's Pittsburgh Steelers track, "Black & Yellow".Ke$ha is a weird little bird. She recently said, "Somebody sent me their tooth, which I now wear as an earring. It's a molar, I think. I love it when people send me body parts." Ke$ha also talked about how crazy her home in Nashville is. "There are foxes in my front yard, and it looks like a pirate ship inside, and the pool has laser beams in it. It's right on the edge of a park, so in the middle of the night I can run around in the wilderness naked."
There are two "Snow White" movies in the works and Julia Roberts is in negotiations to play the evil queen in one of them. It's called "The Brothers Grimm:Â Snow White". There's no relation between this one and the one we already heard about, "Snow White and the Huntsman". That one stars Charlize Theron as the queen, Viggo Mortensen as the huntsman and Kristen Stewart as Snow White. She's in negotiations, but it's not definite yet. I'm sorry, but aren't Disney Princesses ...happy!? Don't they ...smile!?
Luther Campbell from 2 Live Crew is running for mayor of Miami. Now a high school football coach, he's looking to unseat Mayor Carlos Alvarez who is facing a recall election on March 15th. He's is taking the election seriously and wants to lower taxes, increase affordable housing, and find money for more local parks. Raising money for his initiatives will not be a problem as Campbell plans on taxing strippers. He said, âI think we can stimulate the economy with a tax on strippers. Even though all my stripper freinds are gonna be mad at me, but they make all this money and donât pay taxes. Iâd take that cash and put it into a fund where it supports youth athletics for girls, like cheerleading or softball.â
Yesterday we found out that maybe the reason Halle Berry has been saying she fears for her daughter Nahla's safety when she's with Gabriel Aubrey is because she's jealous. One source claimed Halle got mad as hell when Gabriel started dating Kim Kardashian last year and gave him an ultimatum: either date Kim or spend time with your daughter. Not both. Was she just jealous-crazy? Well a new story says that Gabriel became verbally abusive to Halle, and even threatened her, after they broke up. He had even taken to calling her the n-word. Meanwhile, another source shed some light on why Halle is afraid to let Gabriel spend time alone with their 2-year-old daughter Nahla. Supposedly, Nahla cries hysterically and throws tantrums when Gabriel comes to pick her up for visits. And while she can't communicate what's upsetting her so much, Halle thinks something bad must be happening to cause her fits.
We know more about the "high-end bling" that Lindsay Lohan is being accused of stealing. It's just a necklace, but it's a necklace worth $2,500. Lindsay allegedly swiped it from a jewelry store near her home. The store is called Kamofie & Company. They gave cops surveillance video of Lindsay wearing the necklace just before it was taken on January 22nd as well as a photo of her wearing it a week later. The LAPD reallyÂ did have a warrant to search Lindsay's place for it. But they never got to execute that warrant, because the necklace was turned over to police before they could. Lindsay was not the one who returned it, and nobody knows if she's even associated with the person who returned it. Even though the necklace was returned, police are still investigating, and Lindsay could still be charged with grand theft over it, Which could very well land her back behind bars on a probation violation.
Fans of "Glee" have expressed excitement that Kurt is finally finding love on the show with Blaine. But when Chris Colfer was asked about his character's relationship future,Â Â he teased, "There's a love triangle coming up, but that doesn't really work out for Kurt." Oh no, I guess we'll have to see. Meanwhile, here's a sneak preview of Sue Sylvester's Cheerios performing to Katy Perry's "California Gurls" -Â but it's actually Katy's voice, not the cast of"Glee" - they gotta save something for Sunday's Post-Super Bowl episode on Fox.
Mike Posner featuring Lil Wayne - "Bow Chicka Wow Wow"
PS, the s-word is in there a couple of times! Warning!
Here is a look at Britney Spears' album cover for her new CD "Femme Fetale" that comes out March 15th.
Halle Berry is devoting all her energy to a coming court battle with her baby-daddy, Gabriel Aubry. She even dropped out of the upcoming romantic comedy "New Year's Eve" which is the sort-of sequel to "Valentine's Day". Her role has already been recast with Katherine Heigl. Looks like Halle missed her chance to make out with Jon Bon Jovi. It was part of the movie! Anyway, Gabriel recently went to court to be legally declared the father of 2-year-old Nahla and he asked for joint custody. That's something Halle doesn't want to give him because she fears for Nahla's safety when she's with him. Her rep says, "Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her."
Mila Kunis and Chord Overstreet from "Glee" are the Hot Couple Alert today, bringing television and film together. They were spotted getting cozy at the SAG Awards. They hung out for a while at a SAG Awards after party on Sunday. âMila was on a couch outside near the pool,â a source said, when âChord walked over and sat down with Mila and a friend of hers. They were on the couch for at least 45 minutes looking pretty friendly.â
Justin Timberlake recently hit the big screen as Boo Boo Bear in "Yogi Bear." And in just a few weeks, fans will be able to catch JT voice a different kind of character in an upcoming episode of "The Cleveland Show" along with fellow musicians Will.i.am and T-Pain. Justin's guest-starring episode will be called "Terry Unmarried" and revolve around two big revelations in Cleveland's personal life. Things take a turn when Cleveland discovers that his wife, Donna, never legally divorced her ex-husband, making their marriage illegitimate. Soon after, he finds out that his best friend, Terry, is gay and has been dating a man named Paul (voiced by Timberlake). With the recent developments, the foursome decides to travel to Vermont for a double wedding ceremony. The episode also will feature Theodore, voiced by T-Pain and Bernard, voiced by will.i.am explaining to Cleveland's stepson Rallo why he should break a nasty habit. JT will voice two characters: Paul, the boyfriend of Terry, and a "singing booger," appropriately named Booger, who belongs to Rallo. The episode will air Sunday, February 20th on Fox.
Is Katie Couric planning to leave the "CBS Evening News" to launch a daytime talk show that would replace "Oprah"? Maybe. A source said, "Katie is going to bolt CBS News when her contract expires and start a new chapter of her TV life. The only person who could hope to fill Oprah's shoes is Katie Couric." Someone is a big fan of Katie's, huh? I think it's possible, but that was a strong statement. No one can replace Oprah.
50 Cent is in trouble. He started a Twitter beef with Ciara. It all started when 50 Cent Tweeted, "I just left the Playboy mansion. I think I want to be a pimp now. I have strong pimp qualities. LOL...I'm looking for girls to start my new line of work. Are there any strong potential hoe's on tweeter right now. LOL." Ciara saw it and responded, "The things people tweet say a lot about their character, pay attention!" That's when 50 shot back with this, "Yea I tweet things that reflect my character (B-word). I have a sense of humor, get one (lol). That's why you're 3 million followers behind me." Ciara wrote, "Who you callin' a (B-word)" and linked to Queen Latifah's '90s song "U.N.I.T.Y." which slams guys who call women (B-words). 50 then tried to end things by replying, "I'm not going back and forth with you on Twitter, now cut it out." But I don't know if enough "LOL's" is gonna get you out of calling someone a b-word!
Charlie Sheen is back in rehab. There's no word where he is. His manager says, "Charlie hopes to be back at work in the near future, but there is no time frame. Regaining his sobriety is what is most important." As you probably guessed by that statement, production on "Two and a Half Men" is on hiatus until whenever Charlie is ready to work again.
David Arquette checked out of rehab yesterday, after about a month of treatment. His rep says, "He has completed his treatment and has left. He's in great spirits. He's feeling good and he's ready to move forward." Arquette checked into rehab for alcohol and other issues, but supposedly not drugs.
Demi Lovato is done being treated for her, "emotional and physical issues". She's out of rehab and back home in L.A. Her rep says, "She will continue to see doctors in L.A. who will help her work on the issues she confronted in treatment." Demi checked into rehab last October after punching a backup dancer while opening for the Jonas Brothers last October.
T-Pain got himself a brand new tattoo. The tattoo, which is on his arm, says, "You don't have to like me." And the word "like" is done to look like a Facebook "like" button, complete with the thumbs-up graphic. T-Pain Tweeted a photo of the tattoo recently, along with this caption: "I get a tatt every time I come to Hawaii. I think this ones pretty sweet, unless Facebook shuts down soon."
Britney Spears' next album is coming out March 15th. There's no title yet, but we've heard she is planning on doing, "a major TV event to launch the album" as well as worldwide online contests. That's the good news. The bad news is that both Spencer and Heidi have new music out today. I'll apologize in advance. Here you go:
Heidi Montag - "Heartbeat"
Spencer Pratt - "Go To Work"
Sex tape! Sex tape! In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Kendra Wilkinson is the subject of another soon-to-be leaked private movie. It was shot a few years back by Kendra's ex-boyfriend, Justin Frye. He's the same dude that put out the one last year. Kendra's partner in this one is a high school friend named Taryn Ryan. A girl. A source says, "Kendra and Taryn started fooling around and then Kendra wanted the light turned off. But the camera that was recording them had night vision, so it looks like the Paris Hilton tape. Everything is completely clear." The tape is 45 minutes long, and there's, "nothing left to the imagination." Once again, it's Vivid Entertainment releasing the tape. There's no word when this one will come out, or if Kendra will try to block it like she did the last one. Of course, just how serious she was about blocking it is still in dispute. Like most celebrities do, Kendra ended up signing a deal with Vivid to let them release that first sex tape. She received $680,000 up front and half the profits.
Puff Diddly Pooh has been blamed for many crazy things over the years, but a new court filing takes it to a whole new level! A woman named Valerie Joyce Wilson Turks is seeking a restraining order against Diddy. She is accusing him of being responsible for the collapse of the World Trade Center. Valerie claims that she dated Diddy and that they even have a 23 year old son together after he date raped her. (Puff is 41 so heâd have been 18 when he âfatheredâ this child). She alleges that she has been subjected to abuse since 2001 and that, get this, "Sean went through Kim Porter and Rodney King and knocked down the WTC and then they all came and knocked my children down. Set me up to be on disability and disabled my baby. He put my baby in a wheelchair." Then to top it all off, she claims that Puff still has some money she won in a casino in Mississippi. She said, âI want my chip, please help me. It's well worth over 100 zillions of dollars.â The lawsuit just doesnât stop, âThey put me and my baby in the hospital and broke my baby 2 legs and sexual assaulted my children and crushed us." Valerie is requesting $900 billion dollars in child support, and $100 billion dollars for âloss of income.â The judge set a hearing for Monday, January 31.
I already told you that Jay-Z and Will Smith are going to remake the 1982 hit movie âAnnieâ and Willâs daughter Willow will play the lead role. Now we have bigger news. Jay-Z is getting his first leading movie role. Jigga will play Daddy Warbucksâ bodyguard Punjab. However, in the remake, instead of being from India, the bodyguard will be from Brooklyn.
Jenna Jameson has a bone to pick with Chelsea Handler. It's because of something Chelsea said in a recent issue of "Glamour" magazine. The adjective "raunchy" was brought up to describe Chelsea's humor and she said, "I don't like the word raunchy. I'm irreverent and I say things that a lot of people wouldn't say, and some of it probably isn't in the best taste. But when I hear the word raunchy, to me that describes Jenna Jameson." That really ticked Jenna off, because she replied by calling Chelsea, "a dried up old whore" on Twitter. Sweet, this thing isn't over and it's only gonna get better.
MTV has ordered a fourth season of "Jersey Shore" but it won't be in Jersey or Miami, in fact, it's not even in America. Season four will take place in Italy. An MTV exec said, "The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by.Â We can't wait to see what erupts as a result." Naturally, UNICO National, the Italian-American organization that has been slamming "Jersey Shore" from day one is not happy about this. A rep says, "People used to go to the circus to see the freak show and that is what this will be. It will not only hurt Italians but all Americans. Their outrageous, reprehensible behavior will make us look like buffoons and bimbos." Production on season four will begin this spring. There's no premiere date yet.
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy is apparently still ticked off at Kings of Leon for turning the show down last year because he just unloaded on them. In a new interview, Murphy said, "(Eff) you, Kings of Leon. They're self-centered (A-holes), and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument.Â It's like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of 'Glee' all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music." Back in November, the band said that they didn't realize it was a big deal when they turned "Glee" down, because they'd never seen the show, and didn't know what it was about. But I doubt that's all they said, obviously Ryan is upset. We've heard some other not-so-nice stories about that band.
A rap song that Spencer Pratt recorded has hit the web and it's pretty bad. It's called "Ain't No Thing But a Chicken Wing", and the lyrics are genius. Spencer says his goal was to pitch it to Kentucky Fried Chicken for a commercial. But he never got that far, because he had a falling out with the producers. He doesn't know who leaked the track, but he's not happy about it. He says, "This is an attempt to sabotage my credibility and reputation."

Oprah Winfrey revealed her hidden family secret on yesterday's show. Ladies and gentlemen: Oprah has a half-sister. Oprah's mother, Vernita Lee, had a baby girl in 1963, but she gave the baby up for adoption. Oprah was nine years old, but never knew about the pregnancy because she was living with her father in Tennessee at the time. The girl, who was later named Patricia, lived in foster homes in Milwaukee before finally being adopted when she was seven. A few years ago, she went to the adoption agency in an effort to find her mother. The agency wouldn't give Patricia any names, but they did contact her mother and said she was not interested in meeting her at that time. Patricia didn't want to give up, but all she had to go on was that she had three half-siblings, but that two of them had died, and the other was once in Tennessee. Well, Patricia happened to see a local news interview with Vernita, in which she talked about how she had two dead children, who were half-siblings to Oprah. Their ages and death dates matched the adoption information Patricia had and amazingly, she took that and started to put the pieces together. Then, she saw a magazine story on a woman named Alisha, who was Oprah's half-niece. Patricia met up with Alisha and she agreed to participate in a DNA test. It proved that they were related. Patricia then spent three years trying to contact Vernita and / or Oprah, but didn't have any luck. Finally, talk within Oprah's family began to heat up and Oprah's mother finally admitted that it was true this past November. Oprah met her half-sister when her family joined Oprah's family for Thanksgiving in Milwaukee. Oprah said she wanted to wait to reveal everything publicly on her show because, "There is no way a story like this wouldn't get out in the press and wouldn't get exploited. I wanted you to hear it from me first." On that note, Oprah also became emotional when talking about how Patricia never "sold her out" to the press even though she knew she could be Oprah's sister since 2007, and was having trouble contacting Oprah directly. She said, "Since I have been a person known in the public, there have been few times when I've been anywhere and not been sold out. What is so extraordinary is they have known this secret since 2007, she never once thought to go to the press. She never once thought to sell this story." That's clearly what gained Oprah's trust. Oprah said that she and Patricia will be, "getting to know each other in the months and days and years to come."
"Glee" co-stars Naya Rivera (Santana) and Chord Overstreet (Sam) might be hooking up off camera in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Naya was in Las Vegas over the weekend celebrating her 24th birthday. Chord was there, along with fellow cast mates Cory Monteith (Finn) and Kevin McHale (Artie). But Naya's attention was mostly on Chord. A witness says, "Naya was cuddling with Chord in her private booth until they took to the dance floor and grinded together all night. They even kissed at one point and walked out of the club hand in hand." Chord better watch out, though. Remember that Naya used to date Mark Salling (Puck) but when she read gossip reports about Mark messing around with other girls, she keyed his car and covered it with eggs and dog food. Sweet girl.

Oprah Winfrey will reveal an earth-shattering "hidden family secret" on today's show. In a promo clip for the episode, Oprah says, "In the past 25 years, the "Oprah" show has reunited a lot of people. I thought I'd seen it all. But this, my friends, is the miracle of all miracles." There's no word on what this is all about yet, but Oprah's preview continues, "I was given some news that literally shook me to my core. "This time, I'm the one being reunited, only a handful of people in my life know about this, I was keeping a family secret for months, and on Monday you're going to hear it straight from me." The "family secret" could be rooted in Oprah's troubled childhood. She was born into poverty to two unmarried teenagers. The couple split up after Oprah was born, and various family members raised her. She was also molested as a child. Then she became pregnant at 14, but the baby died just after it was born.
Kanye West's last album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy", just came out in November. His joint album with Jay-Z is on the way. And now he's planning on releasing another new solo album this summer. On Twitter, Kanye said, "My album with Jay-Z, 'Watch the Throne' is coming in 2 months!!! My new album is coming this summer. 'All the Lights' video in 1 week!!!! This is high end rap music."
For Aaron Carter, the road to restarting his music career has taken a detour treatment facility. Aaron's manager says he needs to "heal some emotional and spiritual issues." Aaron's big brother Nick Carter is from the Backstreet Boys. His manager continued, "Aaron has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he's about to take."

For most men, finding Christina Aguilera in your bed could be a dream come true. Not so much for the guy who didnât even know her. Jeremy Renner from âThe Hurt Lockerâ had a 40th birthday bash and Christina showed up uninvited, got "wasted" then passed out in Jeremyâs bed! A week later, Jeremy went on a rant about the incident at a Golden Globe after party when he saw Christina. He said, "Someone comes and tells me she's in my room, I run up and open the door and I'm like, 'Um, hi. What are you doing?' She just starts slurring. Her boyfriend Matthew Rutler was rubbing her back. Who comes to someone's birthday party that they don't know and gets in their bed?! My parents were there!" Adds another source, "Christina was a mess at that party. She acted like a fool. Her boyfriend was shushing her and telling her to go to sleep."
Last year, "Us Weekly" claimed that Justin Timberlake cheated on Jessica Biel during a steamy, three-day affair with Olivia Munn. Everybody denied it, of course. But now "Life & Style" is picking up where they left off, saying that Justin is trying to rekindle things with Olivia. A friend says that Olivia has several texts from Justin on her phone. One said, "My relationship is basically over" and another said, "I'm thinking about you." The friend saw part of a third text, but not the whole thing. What she saw was, "You don't know how hard it is..." And how is Olivia reacting to this? Apparently with guarded enthusiasm.Â The source says, "She's super flattered, but she's not stupid. She's not expecting it to go anywhere, but she'd love it if it did!"
Anne Hathaway will play Catwoman in the third Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises". Well, technically, it was announced that she's playing Selina Kyle. But since Selina Kyle is Catwoman, the assumption is pretty safe. She's also kind of a love interest for Bruce Wayne/Batman, even though they're not always on the same page. Anne reportedly beat out Keira Knightley, Rachel Weisz, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman for the role.
Katy Perry announced dates for this summer's "California Dreams 2011" tour. It will begin in June in Atlanta and wrap up in August in her hometown of Santa Barbara. The closest she comes to Hampton Roads is June 14 in Raleigh or June 15 in Columbia, MD.Â
At a recent show in Brooklyn, Lauryn Hill showed up to the venue four hours late. When fans were upset, she actually yelled at them. Well, guess who's coming to Norfolk? Lauryn has a show at the Norva on February 12. Tickets go on sale this Saturday. If you buy them on Saturday only, they'll run you $45, otherwise they're $50. Have fun at the show, bring a Snickers.
Kanye West has thrown his hat into another arena â heâs going to be an actor! And in his first role, we hear he's going to be playing a man coming out of the closet! And it gets better, the movie will have a gay love scene in it. Kanye has signed on to do some acting, in a flick about a gay jazz band in 1939. He plays a gay band member, and there is explicit gay sex in this movie. It is being funded by Will Smith, Jay-Z and even Oprah has put some money into this movie, itâs a 20 million dollar film. The script won 9 awards, and the Academy Awards has an award for screenplays, and the script for Kanyeâs movie won it twice, so I guess that means it could be one of those incredible Oscar nominated films.
Â Â Oprah Winfrey was on the debut episode of Piers Morgan's new CNN show last night and during the interview, she talked about her rough childhood, which included becoming pregnant when she was 14 years old. She explained, "I knew that me getting pregnant was a result of bad choices, and not having boundaries, and sexual abuse from the time I was 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. I thought before the baby was born, 'I'm going to have to kill myself.'" Oprah ended up losing the baby. But before she did, she admitted to trying to sabotage the pregnancy and / or kill herself. Fortunately, she didn't do anythingÂ too dangerous, but she does say that she, "did stupid things like drinking detergent." Oprah added, "I knew that the baby's death was my second chance."
Â Â Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban announced that they have a new baby daughter. Her name is Faith Margaret Kidman Urban. Now, you may be thinking, "Hold up a second there, I saw her at the Golden Globes on Sunday night and she was looking very thin, like always." And there's a reason for that. Nicole and Keith used a surrogate. Nicole donated her egg, Keith donated his manly seed, so the surrogate gave birth to Nicole and Keith's biological daughter. She was born in Nashville on December 28th. They already have one daughter, a two-year-old named Sunday Rose.
Â Â Christina Aguilera and Julianne Hough were at a party at the Soho House in West Hollywood Friday.Â Allegedly, Christina wasn't happy to see Julianne. She ran over, got in her face, screamed at her, even got physical with her by grabbing her! She also threatened to destroy Julianne's new country music singing career. There's no word on what set Christina off. Both Christina and Julianne were in "Burlesque" and there were reports that they were becoming good friends. Maybe those friendship rumors weren't true and they don't get along at all.
Gucci Mane has a lot of tattoos. I don't know the details of all of his tattoos. But I can say, without question, that this is the dumbest of his tattoos. Gucci got a large new tattoo of an ice cream cone with three scoops of ice cream on his face. The tattoo covers his entire right cheek, comes close to his nose, and extends up to his eyebrows. The ice cream cone says the word "Brr" and has lightning bolts shooting out of the top. His spokesman says he got the tattoo, "as a reminder to fans of how he chooses to live his life. Cool as ice. As in, 'I'm so icy, I'll make ya say Brr.'" Remember, Gucci may have just done a court-ordered stint in a mental facility, for saying earlier this month that he wasn't mentally competent to stand trial for a traffic altercation. This doesn't exactly clear things up.
Â Â Justin Bieber is fine now, but he was in the hospital yesterday. Apparently, he had an allergic reaction on the set of "CSI", and was having trouble breathing. A source says, "His doctor met him at the hospital. He stayed at the hospital about 30 minutes and was discharged." Justin's rep, "He's fine now and back on the set." Justin is scheduled to present an award at Sunday's "Golden Globes". And for the Beliebers, here's a new preview for Justin's 3D flick, "Never Say Never" which hits theaters on February 11th.
Â Â A.J. McLean of The Backstreet Boys is going back to rehab for the third time. The singer issued a statement yesterday confirming that he had checked himself into a rehabilitation center, citing "personal reasons." The boy band is scheduled to go on a massive tour with New Kids On The Block this year and A.J. says he wants to be "healthy and perform and sing for people at my very best and happiest." He says the tour won't be affected. McLean also sought treatment in 2001 and 2002. He turned 33 last week.
Lots of people have seen pictures of Nicki Minaj and Drake and believe they're getting married. For real this time. After pictures of Nicki in a wedding dress and Drake in a tux showed up online this week, people were hoping that it was for real and not some Twitter joke. Unfortunately for Nicki/Drake supporters, it was just for a scene in her video for "Moment For Life". Sorry!
TheÂ break-upÂ wasn't so innocent after all. Jake Gyllenhaal took a page out of the Joe Jonas Break-up Handbook and broke up with Taylor Swift over the phone. Sources say Taylor was completely blindsided, "Taylor is really upset and hurt. She doesn't know what she did for him to just put a stop to it. She feels really burned by him." Her pain was evident at last week's "People's Choice Awards". A friend says, "She was not her usual bubbly, over-animated self. She didn't eat anything, seemed very sad and definitely wasn't having a good time." Anybody buy that she's NOT going to record a song about her and Jake? Sorry, but that's gonna end up on her next album! I think she'll call it, "Phone Call."
Â Â Kate Hudson is pregnant. The father is Matt Bellamy from the British band Muse. They've been dating for about nine months. There's been no official word yet from Kate, but a source says, "They couldn't be more excited. Kate is really happy. She was always excited to have kids again at some point." Kate already has a 7-year-old son named Ryder with her ex-husband, Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes.
This definitely shouldn't come as a shock to you. But Kanye West dropped $180,000 on a watch. It's an 18-carat yellow gold watch, with over eight karats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds. These diamonds were cut and placed to form an image of his face!! Usher had one of these made, too. Of course, his featured his own face, not Kanye's. Usher paid $250,000 for his.
You mightÂ know that Tom Hanks' son Colin is following him into the acting business, but Tom has another son who's apparently a wannabe rapper. Chester Hanks is a student at Northwestern University. And he recently composed a rap anthem to his school called "White and Purple". He goes by Chet Haze. What do you think?
Eva Longoria may have gotten one of her Tony Parker-related tattoos removed. Eva used to have her wedding date, July 7th, 2007, tattooed on her right wrist. But over the weekend, she showed up to a party and it appeared to be gone. There's no word if she still has "Nine" (Tony's jersey number) on the back of her neck. In the picture, it looks like some remnants of the tattoo might still be there, like she's in the process of getting it lasered, but it's not completely gone.
Â Â Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have made it clear that they're not doing anything to prevent pregnancy. And the "New York Post" says that their passive approach to fertilization has paid off. A source says, "Khloe has been hiding a tell-tale bump behind flowing dresses and oversized handbags." There's no official word yet, but consider this the Khloe pregnancy watch, day 1.
Â Â Brandy attended the Los Angeles premiere of BET's "The Game" last Friday - and champagne was flowing freely. The insider explained, "Brandy didn't have a sip - and she's known to enjoy her champagne." The insider continued, "Terrence (from BET's 106 & Park, her current BF) was with her all night. And he would turn down the champagne for Brandy. It was almost like he didn't want her to drink. I'd bet she's pregnant." The better question is, if she is pregnant who's the daddy? A very trusted insider said that Brandy was still giving booty calls to her ex, Flo Rida as of a couple of months ago!
We previewed Britney Spears' new single "Hold It Against Me" yesterday in E on the Z. In case you missed it,Â here it is again. It's that song we already heard, this time it's Britney doing the vocals, obviously.
We also got the new single from Kanye West and Jay-Z. It's called "H.A.M." and it's not about the meat you enjoy from a pig. It's the first single from their album we're looking forward to called "Watch The Throne". I'm only posting this link for the song, because there is not a clean version yet. This original version of the song is VERY MUCH UNCENSORED!!! There are a TON of words you don't want your kids to hear or let your boss know you're listening to at work. PLEASE USE CAUTION when previewing this track. Thank you!!!
LISTEN to the new Britney Spears song "Hold it Against Me"!!Omarion would like you to know that he isÂ not bisexual or gay in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Rumors started circulating about Omarion's sexuality after several blogs posted a phony statement from him saying, "I am not at all what certain ex-band members are trying to paint me as, I am however a respectable, mature, proud, bisexual man." Supposedly, this was in response to rumors being spread by Raz-B, one of his former band mates in B2K. Omarion issued the following denial Saturday on Twitter, "Check it out 'I DID NOT RELEASE THAT STATEMENT', whatever you like is your business but I AINT GAY OR BISEXUAL, I love women PERIOD!!!!!!!" Meanwhile, his reps added, "The previously released statement regarding Omarion is false and was generated for negative publicity by an unknown person. Omarion will not contribute to anything negative said or done against him. Omarion respects all of his fans, no matter religion, sexuality, or race."
Â Â Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were all over each other Friday night at a Hollywood club called Eden. A source says, "They were constantly touching and kissing each other. Vanessa was bopping around with her arms up while Zac had his hands all over her." The groping didn't stop when they gave up the dance floor for their table, "Zac sat in between her legs and she wrapped her arms around him. They were making out on and off for the last hour or so until closing. They acted like there was no one else in the room." It's odd because Zac and Vanessa dated for about five years, before supposedly breaking up in early December.
Â Â Miranda Kerr gave birth to a baby boy this past Thursday. This is the first child for Miranda and her husband Orlando Bloom. There's no word yet on the kid's name.
Â Â David and Victoria Beckham are reproducing again. They already have three sons. David broke the news yesterday, saying, "I've got some great news to tell you all.Â Victoria and I are expecting our fourth child this summer. The boys are very excited about the arrival of a new brother or sister."
A lot of new "Glee" news came out over the weekend. Here's the rundown. "Glee" will be taking on Lady Gaga's new single, "Born This Way", which is the title track off her next album. The single isn't even out yet. The album is scheduled to hit stores on May 23rd. The song will be featured in an episode about Karofsky, the closeted gay bully. There's no airdate yet, but it'll be sometime in March or April. Meanwhile, "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that Gwyneth Paltrow will return to the show later this season. She'll do two more episodes, which will probably air in early March. She'll reprise her role as a substitute teacher named Holly Holliday. When Gwyneth did the show back in November, her character taught Spanish. This time, she'll be teaching Sex Ed. Murphy also denied speculation that "Glee" will do a Justin Bieber-themed episode. He said that one of Justin's songs will be performed in a future episode, but that Justin doesn't have a big enough catalog yet to support a full episode.
We should see an album from Britney Spears sometime in March. Although, she has confirmed that her new single "Hold It Against Me" will be released next Tuesday. On Twitter, Britney said, "Heard an early demo of my new single leaked. If u think that's good, wait 'til you hear the real one Tuesday." A demo version of the song has hit the Internet. It's so raw that it doesn't even have Britney's vocals. Some other chick is doing the singing. What do you think?
Â Â "Jersey Shore" star Jenni âJ-WOWWâ Farley has gone to court to try and block her former boyfriend Tom Lippolis from releasing naked photographs of her. The nude photos show J-WOWW both before and after she had her second breast augmentation and liposuction. J-WOWW filed an Order To Show Cause in a bid to stop her former lover and manager from ââcashing-inâ on the images. However, Tomâs lawyer believes that the MTV beauty does not have any right to block his client from doing what he wants with the photographs because they were taken on his cell phone with her consent.
Â Katy Perry will be guest-starring on an episode ofÂ "How I Met Your Mother." She will play Zoey's cousin described as "a beautiful, naive girl the gang resorts to calling "Honey." The episode will air sometime in February.
Don't expect Aretha Franklin to admit she has pancreatic cancer any time soon. In fact, she says she's all better. Asked to reveal the nature of her recent health problem, Aretha said, "I don't have to talk about my health with anybody other than my doctors. The problem has been resolved." She added, "I am not one to do a lot of talking about my personal health or business. There are a lot of people who will talk about anything, as long as there is somebody listening. That's not Aretha." All she would say is that she experienced, "a very hard pain in my side" during a gig in Toronto last year. Her doctor told her to get a CAT-scan. She says, "Thank God he said that because that unfolded everything, what the problem was and everything." And she warns her fans, "If there is anything happening with you that is uncommon and something that you know should not be happening, go to your doctor. Be determined to find out what is going on."
Craig's List: "Iâm a 6â6âhandsome, rich, black male looking for a sex with no strings attached. I just got out of a relationship and looking to get my rocks off." Who said that in aÂ personals ad on Craig's List: Houston? Check it out, it's real! You'll never believe it, Slim Thug is looking for some casual lovin from the common stranger!! Wow...THIS is the picture you chose to post?
Congratulations, Jake Gyllenhaal, you are officially the subject of a future Taylor Swift song! "People" magazine says that Jake and Taylor broke up last month just before New Year's Eve. There's no official word why, but "Us Weekly" claims it was Jake who walked. A source says, "Jake reached out to her and started all of this, but now he's not acting as interested. He said he wasn't feeling it anymore and was uncomfortable with all the attention they got. (Jake and Taylor spent the last few months of 2010 hitting just about every coffee shop on the East and West Coasts together.) He also said he could feel the age difference." Jake is 30, Taylor is 21. Another source added, "Jake cares about her, but the publicity was a lot for him. He wants to keep his private life private, and that's hard to do dating Taylor."
With all the "big" changes that are being teased for the upcoming 10th season of "American Idol" it'll be interesting to see if the producers are able to keep it exciting enough to watch thru to the finale. Obviously, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez have joined the judges' panel. But, here are some of the major changes we know about. There won't be a Top 24 this season. Instead, the Hollywood round will be expanded, and they'll skip directly to the Top 12. I've also heard it could be 10 or 15. The producers aren't sure on that yet. But it will be just the top singers, not top six guys and top six girls. Gender won't be favored. Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe insisted that the contestants live together in the same house, aka the Idol Mansion. He also told "Entertainment Weekly" that part of the "Hollywood round" will actually take place in Las Vegas where 60 contestants will each have to perform a Beatles song. Not sure why? Now, although the Top 24 won't exist as it has in the past, America will help pick the finalists in a so-called "sudden death Top 20 round." It's a little unclear, but it sounds like a single round of voting will pick the finalists out of the Top 20. That's it for the official changes, but there are a lot of rumors going around about other changes. Most of them haven't been officially addressed yet, but one of them has been pulled off the table. Executive producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz denied speculation that the show was considering having the contestants make music videos to test their performance and acting skills. However, one of the more interesting rumors we've heard is that "Idol" was thinking about introducing a challenge where new contestants would be pitted against former winners and finalists. But "Idol" gave up on the idea when they weren't able to draw any interest from their more successful alumni. You're telling me Anoop is too busy? Really? What's Melinda Doolittle doing right now? Where's good old Justin Guarini? "American Idol" premieres Wednesday, January 19th.
Last month news broke about a little "incident" involving Lindsay Lohan at the Betty Ford Center. Here's the backstory: Lindsay and two of her fellow patients snuck out of the clinic after curfew. Upon their return, they were confronted by security who called in a "chemical dependency technician" named Dawn Holland to administer drug and alcohol tests. Lindsay pitched a fit. She refused to be tested, then threw her phone at Dawn and yanked Dawn's phone out of her hand, spraining her wrist. The story didn't come out until a few days before Christmas, when Dawn spoke to TMZ about it. A police report was filed, but Dawn ended up dropping the case, claiming she didn't want to see Lindsay prosecuted. She was then fired from Betty Ford for revealing confidential patient information to TMZ. But that's not where this ends. Even though Dawn dropped out of the case, the cops did not. They continued to investigate and they've come to the conclusion that Lindsay committed battery on Dawn Holland, thus violating her probation. Of course, that's not their call. It's up to the local district attorney to decide whether or not to charge Lindsay. And it's up to Judge Elden Fox to decide if she violated her probation on those two DUIs from 2007. As it stands, Lindsay is on probation until next August. Fox has said that if Lindsay violates her probation or fails another drug test before her next court date on February 25th, he'll incarcerate her for up to six months. Of course, we've seen Judge Fox talk tough to Lindsay before, then totally backtrack when it comes to actually punishing her. It'll be interesting to see if he does it again this time. But the only way he's going to have to make a decision on punishment is if Lindsay is charged with battery. If she's not, then it's a non-issue.
Â Â Mickey Rourke has signed up to tell the true story of Britainâs first openly gay rugby star and is already taking lessons to speak in a Welsh accent. And Rourke is reportedly planning to go even further for the role â he is planning to remove his two front teeth so he can realistically portray gap-toothed Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas on the big screen. Mickey wanted to replicate Garethâs gappy smile, which was the result of a particularly nasty onfield tackle. Mickey intends to get as close to the character as he can.
Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds co-starred in "The Proposal" and are working on another film together called "Most Wanted", but they've been just friends up to now. But in today's Hot Couple Alert, they may have hooked up over New Year's. Ryan spent the weekend with Sandra at her home in Austin, Texas and on New Year's Eve, they celebrated at her restaurant, Bess Bistro. A source says, "They sat next to each other and were holding hands at one point. They were very cute together." Other sources insist that Sandra did not break up Ryan's marriage to Scarlett Johansson. Ryan and Scarlett just announced their divorce plans a few weeks ago. As one source puts it, "Sandra would never get involved with a married man after what Jesse James did to her. She has way too much respect for Scarlett, Ryan, the institution of marriage and herself to do that." But that doesn't mean they won't get together. The source says, "They both just happen to be single at the same time and they have a lot of chemistry."
Â Nicki Minaj and her manÂ may be in trouble and itâs all because of Drake. Weâve heard for weeks that these two have been hooking up. Now we have proof from New Yearâs Eve in New York City. A woman dating one of Young Moneyâs members was there and saw some tension behind the scenes. She said that Nicki and her current boyfriend,Â S Beezy were having a good time. They rang in the New Year together and looked cool. Then Drake came into the club. Heâd been at a party somewhere else and showed up late. Well immediately Nicki left Safaree and was kicking it with Drake. It was very embarrassing because Nicki was all over Drake. The woman said, âI felt sorry for Safaree. But he knew what it was, and he he just left and went home.â To top it off, there are pictures of Nicki and Drake kissing. Need any more proof?
Soulja Boy never has a problem telling us how great he is, but this time he went a little overboard. He's trying to take credit for writing Willow Smith's song "Whip My Hair." In a recent Tweet, Soulja said, "I wrote "Whip My Hair" for Willow Smith." It doesn't get any clearer than that. But the real story is something different. It turns out that "Whip My Hair" was written by the songwriting team of Ronald Jackson and Janae Rockwell. But during the song, she does sing, "Hopped up out the bed turned my swag on," a line from Soulja Boy's song from 2009. However, Soulja was smart enough to trademark the phrase and for that he likely received some credit or monetary compensation.
There's no need to speculate about the status of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber anymore. Over the weekend, they were photographed kissing on a yacht in the Caribbean. There's also a picture of Justin grabbing him some 18-year-old booty. She's 18, he's 16, but as 30 year-old Kim Kardashian learned, there's a price to pay when you mess with Justin.Â And that price just might be your life! An army of prepubescent girls has begun launching death threats at Selena. Check out some of the hate that's been spewed at Selena on Twitter since those pictures hit the web:Â
@selenagomez I'll kill you I swear on GOD!!!!
@selenagomez If you are the Girlfriend of Justin I will Kill you I HATE YOU!!!
@selenagomez whore cancer whore..like i'mm kill myself cuz i saw you and Justin kissing well thankyou Selena thankyou now i'm killing myself!!
@selenagomez stay away from Justin pedophile, retard wait i'm gonna kill ya in the night underneath your smelly bed!
One fan even expressed her anger in the form of a poem:
roses are red, violets are blue, @selenagomez if you'll break @justinbieber's heart I'm gonna kill you :3
Months of speculation regarding a possible Nicki Minaj sex tape have culminated in a leaked photo which would seem to indicate that one will be hitting the internet soon in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. One suggestive photo has already been dismissed by many fans, who believe the photo is from another, unrelated porno that does not feature Nicki, but so far, there has been no word from Nicki's camp regarding the video.
Â Â Lil Kim has taken aim at her rival Nicki Minaj once again, warning her that fans will see her real side "pretty soon". Lil Kim accused Nicki of copying her style, with Nicki reaching out to Kim and urging her to call a truce. However, she refused to back down and blasted Minaj on a track entitled "Black Friday" - a play on "Pink Friday" - alleging she slept with Lil Wayne to land a record deal.
Who would have guessed Captain Jack Sparrow is a Bieber fan! Saturday night Johnny Depp was busted at a Justin Bieber concert. The Biebs performed for a sell-out crowd at the American Airlines Arena near Miami Saturday night, and who was seen at the show? Both Depp and Justinâs good âfriendâ Selena Gomez were in the crowd. Johnny attempted to sneak out a back stage door after the show, but his secret is out. He officially has Bieber fever! Selena Gomez was escorted back to Justinâs bus post-show, and she gave him a nice, congratulatory hug as soon as he hopped on. As lots of people have been reporting, Justin and Selena have been hanging out together. They were seen Saturday morning as they took a leisurely stroll near their South Beach hotel. Selena insists the two are just friends, but now that he has Johnny Depp in his corner, who knows what may develop next!
Mariah Carey is having twins. Nick Cannon announced it yesterday on his radio show. But we're not the first to know. That honor went to Barack and Michelle Obama. Cannon said he and Mariah ran into the Obamas backstage at the taping of TNT's "Christmas in Washington" on Sunday night, and they actually asked if they were having twins. He said, "At this point she hadn't told anybody anything because doctors advised us to keep it to ourselves until we get further along. And because of the excitement, because of the emotion, she was overwhelmed, she shared with the President and First Lady that we are having twins."
Injured Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is engaged to former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford. She is Chace Crawford's ("Gossip Girl")Â younger sister, and is a sports reporter for KDAF-TV in Dallas. He proposed yesterday while celebrating her 24th birthday at a Dallas restaurant.
Jake Gyllenhaal spared no expense when getting a gift for his new girlfriend's birthday. Jake reportedly shelled out $10K on a rare Fender Gretsch for Taylor Swift. A source said, "He spent the weekend in Nashville with her and she saw the guitar in a tiny store which a lot of A-list musicians use. Taylor drooled over it so Jake went back to the shop later and bought it for her. He was originally going to buy it just as a gift but it ended up being perfect for her birthday on Monday." I'm sure she loved it, but I hope the gift doesn't backfire on him. If he breaks her heart, she'll probably use it to write him a love song. And by love song, I actually mean a throw-you-under-the-bus kind of love song that's classic Taylor.
Georgia authorities have reportedly raided Waka Flocka Flame's home, and his buddy Gucci Mane was handcuffed and taken in over possible links to prostitution, gangs and drugs! Waka was apparently not home, and if he doesn't show up soon, sources claim that a warrant for his arrest will be issued!
"Glee" star Matthew Morrison has confirmed that he will be going on a solo tour next year to promote his debut album. In fact, Mr. Shu's already getting the ball rolling. Morrison said, "I go right into rehearsals after Christmas. This is the only time I have off, really, so that's why we're kinda getting it in now. When Glee goes on our hiatus in April, I'm gonna start doing a big tour." He recorded his album during nights and weekends while filming Glee this fall.
This could be awkward:Â Michael C. Hall might be getting some sexy time with his "Dexter" co-star Julia Stiles while he's divorcing his other "Dexter" co-star, Jennifer Carpenter in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day.Â That doesn't necessarily mean this relationship broke up Michael and Jennifer's marriage. When they announced their divorce, they said they'd been, "separated for some time."
Michael Vick is legally barred from ever owning a dog again for obvious reasons.Â But Vick thinks he's ready for a new pet.Â And he thinks it would actually help him. He says, "I would love to get another dog in the future.Â I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process. Vick blames his upbringing for not knowing that dogfighting was wrong, "I hate to use our culture as an excuse. It is what it is. I love animals. I love dogs. I love birds. I love all types of animals. But this is just the way I was brought up. Nobody ever told me it was the wrong thing to do." Vick says that he works with the Humane Society and goes out on speaking engagements, even though the courts don't make him. For his fiance's birthday, he bought her a $90,000 Porche PanameraÂ (I said Panarama todayÂ on the air! ha!)Â and not a puppy like some of you expected. Not bad for a birthday gift, huh?
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg has been named "Time" magazine's Person Of The Year. Other âpeople who matteredâ included Lady Gaga, Pope Benedict, the cast of âGlee,â the unemployed American, Justin Bieber, Conan OâBrien, World Cup winners and losers and LeBron James.
Sandra Bullock, whose year of highs and divorce lows were captured this year in tabloid headlines, was named Woman of the Year in "People" magazine's issue of the 25 most intriguing people of 2010.
We were told that Usher postponed his concert here in Norfolk because heâd broken his ribs. He continued on to do the sold out shows in Madison Square Garden in New York City last night and tonight. Well, an insider said that is not what happened. Usher's current girlfriend, Grace Miguel, who is on tour with him as his co-manager and stylist, found out that Usher was hooking up with one of his backup dancers, named Saidah. Grace and Usher got into a huge fight and with all the chaos, Usher was not able to get things together in time for our Saturday night performance. Usher apparently doesnât know tour rule #1, never sleep with two people on the same tour at the same time!
Â Â Vanessa Hudgens turns 22 today and she might be doing it alone. It's being widely reported that she and Zac Efron broke up. A source says, "It's nothing dramatic. There's no third party involved. They were together for so long. It just ran its course." Another source says, "They are 100% still good friends." Zac and Vanessa had been together for about four years. As your kids probably know, they co-starred in all three "High School Musical" movies together.
Â Â Ja Rule has pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. That's a felony. He's expected to be sentenced to two years in prison in February. Back in 2007, the police found a semiautomatic weapon in Ja Rule's vehicle when they pulled him over for speeding. Meanwhile, 50 Cent made Ja Rule's day worse by re-igniting their beef via Twitter. He sarcastically said, "Damn da homie jah rule gotta do 2 years. Tell him I said don't worry I got him when he come home. Jah came out the courtroom yelling who the (eff) canceled Christmas. Come on it's only 721 days, stop crying. It's only 104 weeks. Wipe ya nose sucka. Be a man!!!!! LOL." Ja Rule responded by Tweeting, "(N-word), u (rhymes with wussy) shut up before I smack u in yo mouth again LOL. The nerve of some (N-words)!!!" To that, 50 said, "You see I was just trying to look out [for] the homie, now he mad at me. why? I don't wish jail on nobody stay strong you little punk. LOL." Hip-hop beefs seemed more menacing before Twitter when no one said "LOL" after every slam, don't you think?
Â Chelsea HandlerTweeted a picture of herself in bed with 50 Cent.Â Of course, it's a joke.Â Although we don't have any evidence that they didn't have crazy sexy time immediately after it was taken. Cheslea captioned the pic, "I don't know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper." 50 Tweeted too with the same picture saying, "Why people keep saying I got jungle fever. I ain't never even kissed a white women." Technicality, Fif.Â SHE is kissing HIM.
Miley Cyrus took a bong hit and everyone is having a fit. It was allegedly taken during a party at Miley's home on November 28th, five days after she turned 18. After taking the hit, Miley says, "Okay, I'm about to lose it now.Â I'm having a little bit of a bad trip right now." Then she does a lot of giggling, and mistakes someone else for her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. The video was shot by a friend of Miley's, and she's obviously not worried that she's being filmed. There's no word who made the video public, but you can watch it below in case you missed it over the weekend. The drug Miley smokes is called Salvia and it's legal in California, at least for now. It's an herb that has psychedelic properties, much like LSD. A spokeswoman for the DEA said, "It's a powerful hallucinogen and it helps you have visions. People smoke it solely to get high and hallucinate. When someone smokes salvia, they are not in control of their psychology." Salvia's supporters are quick to point out that it's a natural herb, and it's not addictive.
Â Â Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got married Saturday at the Los Angeles estate of Nicole's adoptive father, Lionel Richie. Celebrity guests included Joel's twin brother Benji, Khloe Kardashian, Samantha Ronson, and Gwen Stefani with her husband Gavin Rossdale. The coolest part is that the ceremony was conducted by Reverend Run of Run-DMC. Awesome! For reasons unknown, the festivities also included an elephant. Nicole is 29, Joel is 31. They've been together four years and they have two children together: a 2-year-old daughter, Harlow and a 15-month-old son, Sparrow.
Â Â Chris Rock helped calm a woman down after she went into labor at a New Jersey mall Friday. He was at Neiman Marcus in the Garden State Plaza when a woman standing next to him went into labor. So Rock sprang into action, doing what he does best. A witness said, "He was making the crowd, and the woman in labor, laugh. She recognized who he was immediately, and he stayed there until the paramedics took her away."
The cast of "Glee" was supposed to shoot a musical performance for their post-Super Bowl episode last Friday but production was shut down because of a tonsillitis epidemic. It's unclear who is sick and how many cast members are affected, but we do know Dianna Argon (Quinn) is one of them. She posted Twitter message saying, "Note to self: Should have gotten a flu shot. In bed, hoping that medicine, soup, my computer and a marathon of movies will be the cure."Â It's unclear if there are multiple sicknesses going around or if it's a flu bug. Filming is set to resume today, although the musical performance that was going to be shot Friday has been rescheduled for next month.
This whole week, in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, it seems to have been a whole lot of rumored pregnancies. Here's another one. Bow Wow is about to be a daddy.

Â Â Janet Jackson will embark on a world tour next year that will feature performances of her #1 singles â and nothing else. She will play 35 dates across the globe where she will perform each of her 35 chart toppers. In a blog on her official website, she said: âDuring the past several months Iâve had such wonderful experiences. Iâve released my "Number Ones" CD and many have asked when I will tour again â well today Iâm really excited to announce my largest ever world tour, celebrating 35 number ones. This tour will be different from those of the past in the way that I will exclusively perform songs from my number ones. Youâll hear all the hits in 35 cities, which I want you to help me select.â Can't wait!!
Â Â A&E is apparently through with "The Hasselhoffs" that new reality show starring David Hasslehoff and his daughters, Hayley and Taylor Ann.

Â Â Alexis Neiers is on E!'s reality series Pretty Wild with her mom, Andrea Arlington-Dunne, and sisters Gabby Neiers and Tess Taylor. She's also known for being a part of the "Bling Ring," burglarizing the homes of Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and more. Well Alexis was just arrested on a probation violation when she failed to check in with her probation officer. The cops checked up on her and found a black substance that resembled tar heroin, it's burnt foil that is common with heroin use. They ordered her to spend a year in a drug treatment program.
Somebody took some sexy pictures of Christina Aguilera in her walk-in closet earlier this year and has leaked them in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. These pictures weren't meant to be seen by us, obviously.Â They were only for the eyes of Christina and her stylist. But somebody hacked into his account. Christina's rep says, "The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina's personal stylist's account. The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera's home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist. We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively. Their conduct is reprehensible."
Oprah Winfrey opened up to Barbara Walters in a revealing, very personal interview that will air on ABC tonight. She said she and Gayle King are close friends and that she is not a lesbian, "not even kinda a lesbian."

This is from that Barbara Walters interview special that airs tonight on ABC. Watch part of the interview HERE.
It's being reported that Aretha Franklin's mystery illness is incurable pancreatic cancer. It's the deadliest form of cancer and the one that killed Patrick Swayze. Her cousin told the "Detroit Free Press", "She has a long life in front of her and will be back in concert, onstage, late spring or early summer." Aretha's sister-in-law added, "Aretha is doing absolutely wonderful.Â All the prayers and will wishes have supported her and she's doing well." Aretha underwent surgery last week. Last month, she canceled all her public appearances through next May.
Somebody else is picking up on Lil Wayneâs leftovers. We told you months ago that Trey Songz was dating Lauren London. Okay, dating may be a strong word. Letâs just say that according to the sneaky peeps, Trey is having convenient sexy time with Lauren whenever he wants it. She was seen recently backstage at Treyâs concert. She was posing with some fans. After that concert, the two headed to a nightclub where they left together after âmany adult beveragesâ. Doesnât anyone feel like maybe you should leave Lil Wayneâs women alone? I guess maybe not since there are so many baby mamaâs out there, right?
Yesterday, Kim Kardashian was pregnant with Kanye West's baby in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day. Today she has broken up with her boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and has already started dating a new guy. Busy girl!Â She's reportedly seeing Kris Humphries from the New Jersey Nets. He's 25 but Gabriel is 34, and a source says he's, "older than Kim is looking for." The source adds, "Kim feels like Gabriel was just using her for her fame." There might have been more to it, though. E! Online says Halle BerryÂ didn't like the idea of her baby-daddy hooking up with Kim, and she let him know it. In the end, "It was just too much for Kim to handle." As for Humphries, the source says, "She likes him much more than Gabriel. He's normal, so much fun and cute. He's perfect for what Kim wants right now, which is some fun dates and some fun times.
Here's some good news and bad news for Jessica Simpson. Unfortunately, her Christmas album "Happy Christmas" only came in at #123 on the Billboard Top 200 and it sold just over 10,000 copies. However, there's no need to feel sorry for her. According to "Women's Wear Daily", Jessica's clothing line has made $750 million in sales this year. And they're predicting that any day now, it'll become the first celebrity clothing line to break the $1 billion barrier. Her brand includes 20 different categories of fashion and assesories and of course, the shoes! Next fall, she will debu her sportswear line full of jackets, knits and dresses all under $150.
Jonah Hill is doing a movie version of "21 Jump Street," the '80s TV cop series that helped launch the career of Johnny Depp. Jonah was smart enough to write a cameo for Johnny in the hopes that he might agree to do it. And it looks like it was worth the effort, because Johnny is totally down. He told MTV News, "I've said I'm into it, but no one's actually approached me. Call him. I'm in. I'm in. I think it'd be pretty easy."

In our Big Fat Rumor of the Day, Kim Kardashian is pregnant. Now before you go hollering at me telling me itâs false, I gotta get the details out first, then weâll talk about any truth potential. So our source says, "Kim has been seeing Kanye West off and on for a while now. But this summer, they hooked up five or six times. Kanye told her that he didn't want anything serious, but Kim really likes him." And now, according to the insider, she suspects that Kim Kardashian is pregnant because Kim is being very secretive about everything. She calls Kanye almost non-stop and wants to know what she should do." The insider reportedly overheard said conversation between Kanye and Kim. Nowâ¦Iâve already heard from her reps, they say the rumor is 100% false. Kim is not expecting a baby.
We all took the advice to âhide ya kids, hide ya wifeâ from Antoine Dodson, but by now you probably forgot why Antoine actually got famous in the first place. Remember back in the day, it was his sister that was almost raped by a burglar. So perhaps she should have been the one in the spotlight, but it was her brother who went on TV acting like a fool. Well his sister, Kelly has now moved to Los Angeles with him. And according to a very reliable snitch - is seeing Bobby Valentino. According to our sneaky peep, inside Bobby V's camp, she was his "personal guest" in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Thatâs where Bey presented Jigga with his birthday present. According to a member of Jigga's inner circle, Beyonce bought her husband a brand new $2 million Bugatti. Apparently, Jay has a little thing for cars, so I think she did a pretty good job this year!
Josh Duhamel got kicked off a plane Thursday after he refused to turn off his BlackBerry. Duhamel was on a flight bound from New York City to Kentucky. While it was still on the runway, Duhamel was asked three times by a flight attendant to shut off the BlackBerry. Witnesses say Josh was very rude, and even taunted the attendant.Â So the plane left the runway and headed back to the gate, where two U.S. Airways reps boarded and removed him from the flight . Josh's rep later said that he was just texting someone about his flight being delayed, and added, "He's sorry."
Suge Knight was arrested in Los Angeles late Friday night on a minor outstanding traffic warrant. He was booked, issued a citation, and released an hour later after promising to appear at an upcoming court date. The warrant was issued after Suge failed to show up in court to address an incident that went down on September 23rd. At the time, Suge was cited for blowing through a stop sign and driving with a suspended license.
Justin Bieber may be one of the biggest teen sensations on the planet right now, but that doesn't mean he's above being punished by his mom like a normal teenager. In an interview, Justin was asked what it was like to have his mom out on the road with him and if he ever felt like he needed a "break" from her. He said, "Mom travels with me. We argue, yes, I think every parent and son argue, but I love my mom. I think it's good she travels with me, but sometimes I need a break because I'm with her 24/7, but I love her, I like being with her. The other day we got into an argument about something stupid, and she was like, 'Give me the phone', and I was like, 'No' so she just went and canceled my phone plan. If Usher wants to get in touch with me? Then it's tough."
The Young Money drama has been in full swing since Lil Wayne got out of prison last month and now itâs getting a little more interesting. In the Big Fat Rumor of the Day, shortly after Wayne was released from prison, he got into a physical altercation with Drake. Now, details as to what caused the beef is coming to light. A Young Money insider explained, "Lil Wayne just feels that Drake is very disrespectful. Like he doesn't pay enough homage to Weezy for putting him on." And then came the bombshell, "For example, when Wayne was locked up Drake started sleeping with Shanell. Now everyone knows that's Wayne's girl. Lil Wayne is not jealous over her or anything, but he thinks that was just disrespectful." Oooh! As Nicodemus said, you donât bite the hand that feeds you, son!
