In the modern rap game, you’re only as good as the company you keep. So given T.I.’s studio posse, the Southern rapper is hotter than a sweltering July day in downtown ATL.
According to T.I., his upcoming album T.I. vs. T.I.P. (scheduled for a July release) will have the following "features" on it: Eminem, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Wyclef Jean, Nelly, Lil Wayne, R. Kelly, Ciara, Akon, and Just Blaze, among others. (Whew. Only thing that could make that list more impressive is getting a bald Britney to raise Tupac and Biggie from the dead.)
One person who isn’t likely to visit him in the studio, however, is T.I.’s ex-girlfriend/fiancé Tameka "Tiny" Cottle (left). The two recently announced their amicable split, even though Cottle is due to give birth to T.I.’s fifth child (second with Cottle) in July.
It took a while, but Britney Spears finally said "yes, yes, yes" to a bit of clean-up. Those fans looking for an anthem that speaks to that "no, no, no" phase a few weeks ago can still have a giggle, however. Check this mash-up that splices footage of the fallen pop star with the audio of Winehouse’s controversial single, “Rehab.” If this video is anything to judge by, it would seem Spears’s aunt has the right idea – go home, Britney. Otherwise, you could end up with a tour rider that looks like Winehouse’s.
Tell us a song that best applies to Britney’s latest condition in "comments."
Unlikely though it may be, the former Mr. Spears is getting into the online search business: Kevin Federline just launched his own search engine. Like Google or Yahoo (which it’s powered by), Search with Kevin allows users to trawl the Net, looking for news, images, items and the like. Unlike Google or Yahoo, however, if you Search with Kevin, you could win prizes, like, say, tickets to the dude’s private birthday March 24th in Las Vegas. As of yet, there’s no word back on whether certain search terms – do rag, PopoZao, Vanilla Ice – have been doing better than others.

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will visit a fat camp during the upcoming season of The Simple Life, which is set to film this summer. Though the facility is billed as a "wellness camp focused on eating right, yoga, nutrition and exercise," you best believe that it’ll be stuffed to the gills with kids whose parents want to see less of them (in more ways than one!). You also best believe that Paris and Nicole, whose combined body-mass index crawls past negative numbers only on some days, will do their part to contribute fat jokes. Those two: always finding new ways to feel superior. Such ingenuity. [New York Post]

Today is not a happy day for Naomi Campbell. It’s the first day of her five-day community service sentence, a result of her pleading guilty in her 2006 phone-throwing tantrum. This means that she had to put her model lifestyle on hold to wake up before noon and report to a sanitation facility in New York, which, like, totally smells bad. If that’s not bad enough, she has to
stand next to push a broom all day, which is totally going to make her feel fat.
Making matters worse, Naomi outed herself as being possibly related to Bigfoot as she entered the facility this morning: Click the image on the left to enlarge it, but be careful — the boots she’s holding may spill out from the screen and kick you in the face. Seriously. They’re about twice the size as her head. The Captain Caveman look? Not fierce. At least, not this season.

It’s been weeks since the finale of Ego Trip’s The White Rapper Show, and yet, as we lie in bed at night, one thing plays on a loop consistently in our heads: "Hallelujah holla back. Hallelujah holla back. Hallelujah holla back." John Brown is one of the most indelible personalities that Celebreality has seen, and though we didn’t get a chance to talk to him while the show was airing, we thought any time was a good time to get the straight story from the King of the ‘Burbz.
After the jump, John Brown talks about using reality TV as a marketing tool, his "Garbage Pail Kid" cast mates and, finally, what the hell the King of the ‘Burbz is doing reviving the ghetto.

Yeah, boyyyyy! Flav turns 48 today. To celebrate, scream "Flavor Flaaaaaaaaaaaaaaav" in the face of your nearest co-worker. Spread the love! And if want to relive the glory, come have a look.
Angelina Jolie picked up the newest edition to her family/crayon box Thursday in Vietnam as expected — by everyone except for the kid. His caretakers at the orphanage didn’t tell him he was going to be adopted, so upon meeting Angelina, he burst into tears. She tends to have that effect.
Anyway, it’s great that Angelina wants to share her wealth with the needy children of the third world, but there’s an element of this adoption that’s a little unsavory: she changed his name (from Pham Quang Sang to Pax Thien Jolie). The kid is 3-years-old, so it’s not like he’s not going to notice. I mean, I didn’t change the name of my cat when I adopted him for fear of confusing him and he has the intellect of a shoebox. Way to colonize, Ange! [Time]
