We’re on the second to last episode of VH1 Tough Love 2. There were a few breakthroughs this week: Jenna and Angel let go of their pasts. Rocky embraced her future. And all of the women learned about what to expect from a real relationship, one based on honesty and acceptance. All this and a heaping portion of blah blah blah.

Some celebs lend their name or give a bit of time or money to a cause, but Travis McCoy is willing to travel the globe. As the ambassador of the Staying Alive Foundation (MTV’s global AIDS charity), the Gym Class Heroes front man traveled from South Africa to the Philippines to India to encourage and empower young people who are involved in HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention campaigns. In addition to his work on the ground, he also wrote a song about it. If you want to help Travis save lives, then download “One At A Time” at www.stayingalivefoundation.org. All proceeds will fund global HIV prevention projects.
Lifehouse, the pop/rock band with a knack for releasing top 40 hits, is exclusively premiering its video for “Halfway Gone” on VH1′s Top 20 today. Starting this weekend, fans can vote for the video here while mega fans can book a cabin now on the VH1 Best Cruise Ever, where Lifehouse will sail with us from Tampa to Grand Cayman (April 15 to 19).

If you’re a Bruce Springsteen fan who can’t pass up an opportunity to learn “unknown stories” about the E-Street Band, then start by picking up a copy of Clarence Clemons‘ “BIG MAN: Real Life & Tall Tales.” Having been with the E-Street Band since ’72, the saxophonist is perfectly positioned to spill some serious dirt. But could The Big Man’s close relationship with The Boss prevent him from detailing the juiciest stories? Maybe this is why his book features “Legends,” a series of hybrid fact-and-fiction stories. We hope he’ll tell some stories of the Real Life variety at his book signing party this Friday in NYC. Details after the jump …
Bon Jovi have been cranking out catchy melodies for 26 years, so it’s no surprise the band is a VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown favorite. With their brand-new single “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” the New Jersey rockers show they haven’t lost their knack for writing a radio-friendly song with hit potential — even when that song has political overtones. But how does the video for this new single stack up against the rest of the Top 20 competition? Watch above and then vote here. Note to ladies: Jon Bon Jovi should not get extra points for his all-American good looks.
Rock and film circles have been buzzing about Anvil! The Story of Anvil ever since the movie premiered at Sundance.

You can catch the must-see documentary on VH1 when it premiers this Saturday, October 3rd at 10 pm et/pt. Check out the full trailer above.
