When news broke recently that Linda Perry, star of VH1′s upcoming show Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project, married her longtime love, actress Sara Gilbert, we were thrilled to hear the news. But when Linda told us about their incredible wedding filled with live performances from the best front women of the best bands of the 1980s, our excitement turned to jealousy that we weren’t invited to the best. wedding. ever.
Linda revealed that the playlist she and Sara agreed on for their nuptials included songs from ’80s staples like The Motels and Berlin. When Linda found the perfect wedding cover band, she decided to call in a few favors and have friends like Annabella Lwin (Bow Wow Wow), Martha Davis (The Motels), Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons) and Terri Nunn (Berlin) join it for the night and sing the songs that made them famous. Linda also performed the John Lennon song “Love” and admits it was hard keeping her emotions in check but the song brought Sara and wedding guest Steven Tyler to tears. For more details about the big day and the passion for music that they two women share, watch our exclusive interview with Linda.
Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project premieres this July.
Everyone has an opinion on Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith‘s sex tape. But Mimi has one simple response for y’all.
We all know that journalist and on-air personality Minya Oh — better known as Miss Info on Hot 97 — is all about that journalism life. But when you meet the This Is Hot 97 star in person, you quickly realize that she’s also got quite a bit of style in addition to all that substance. “I think that I’m already a clothing addict,” she explained. “I love clothes and nails and nail art and shoes and makeup, so [being on a show] is not actually that different for me, I’ll still do the same combination of high and low fashion.”
One thing she’s not into though is having a different look for every scene she’s in — TV will not dictate her wardrobe. “I adamantly will say ‘I am still wearing the same clothes multiple times in a week. I’m gonna wear a dress, and then I’m gonna wear that dress again!’ I think that it’s refreshing for some people to see we’re not going to the grocery store in full makeup and clear heels. No.” We thank her for that.
We were taken by her casual-cool fashion sense and yes, her amaaazing Easter egg-like nails and we had to get some photos, so check out Miss Info’s style in our gallery and tune in to This Is Hot 97 Mondays at 10:30PM ET/PT!

We know that Basketball Wives LA star Jackie Christie was scandalized in Paris when Sundy took her to a nude drawing class. To the point where she couldn’t even bring herself to look at the nude male model with the…
She did eventually put paintbrush to canvas to create a Jackie Christie original, which she graciously shared with us. Check out her artwork below! Read more…
During this season of Basketball Wives LA, the VH1 Blog is happy to have Jackie Christie guest blogging her thoughts to every episode of the show. In her recap, Jackie discusses the Paris trip and all the negativity aimed at her (and her outfit) this week. She’s a forgiving lady, but in this case, the girls went a lock bridge too far.
When in Paris!!!
Asking all the girls to join me in Paris was a huge thing for me knowing that one might not accept the invite! And of course I was correct, she chose to pass…which I must say, was not at all a bad thing. ;-) Although I did have times when I wished we all could have gone and experienced such an amazing beautiful and sexy city! Paris checks all the boxes for me and was a dream come true to be able to go there for the first time! Especially to launch my new signature brand of cognac!
The long flight over was also new for me never having flown more than 6 hours, so flying 14 plus was a very new experience that I would gladly do again! The seats are huge and comfortable and the food amazing in flight, as well as the drinks that flow like a water fountain and the entertainment (movies, games and more) were also great! If you ever get a chance to go…do it! Well worth it I promise! Read more…
You had to know this was coming: After news of Mimi and Nikko‘s sex tape broke yesterday, of course her two most outspoken co-stars from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta offered their comment on the situation. K.Michelle and Joseline Hernandez took to Twitter and Instagram yesterday to offer up their thoughts, videos and viral memes to let Mimi know what they think of her starring role. While we’re impartial to the whole situation, we have to admit, these two are damn funny. Harsh, but funny. Read more…
This week the Hot 97 studio had visits from some big-name guests. Coco Austin showed up to help Laura work on tightening her glutes, and Mike Tyson was there to terrorize Dave Rosenberg. That’s his name for Peter Rosenberg, but try telling HIM that. “F— that, it’s Dave,” Iron Mike tells Peter after he;s corrected. So there you go, that’s the lesson from tonight’s celebrity cameo on This Is Hot 97: never correct Mike Tyson.
This Is Hot 97 airs Mondays at 10:30PM ET/PT.
The all-new supertrailer for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘s, third season contains more drama in four minutes than any of us will experience in a lifetime. You need to watch the whole thing, but to sum up, Mimi ad Nikko make harcore a sex tape, Kirk takes a secret paternity test, and Benzino gets shot. And that’s only about 30 seconds worth of this clip. Read more…
