Dave Navarro Goes Gimp

72717557
Former Chili Pepper, Rock Star: Supernova star and Carmen Electra-doer Dave Navarro has announced plans to host his own weekly hour-long Internet show, which will premiere May 17. Called Spread Entertainment, Navarro described it as a “looser version of Donahue in a nightclub.” Yes, audience members will be able to ask guests questions. But guests will be chosen on the basis of their appeal, not whether or not they’re hawking a book, album or movie. “I want to use the Internet to support artists and see things that are out there that other corporate structures aren’t allowing us to see,” Navarro says. He’s not kidding. Check out his video playlist (after the jump). If you let it go awhile, you’ll get to see the ad he shot in night-vision where he’s trussed up and groaning with a ball-gag in his mouth. Just another day in the life.

Idol: Give Back Our Two Hours

Jackblack_2
You know how every year the Oscars are crammed with gratuitous video montages and irrelevant performances when all you really want to see is the announcement of the winners? Well, last night’s episode of American Idol was a lot like that – except all we really wanted to see was the announcement of the loser.

Seriously though, a duet between Celine Dion and Elvis Presley? Jack Black singing Seal‘s “Kiss From a Rose”? An appearance from Tom, “creator” of Myspace? We didn’t need all that. However, it was nice to see Sanjaya again. It was kind of like being comforted by hearing the familiarity of an old song that used to drive you crazy.

Basically, we all got tricked into watching a star-studded, two-hour telethon
when all we really wanted was to hear the voting results, that all
through Wednesday’s show, was promised to be “shocking.” The couple
hours of altruistic sentiments of charity, warm feelings of
togetherness and helping to heal the world seemed like it was building
up for a HUGE let down for whomever would be sent home. However, it
turns out that the big “shocker” was that no one went home, and that
two people will be bounced next week.

- We’ve told you about this already, but Rihanna’s new video premieres tomorrow! At 10 a.m.! She’s added 14 extra syllables to the word “umbrella,” and boy, does it sound sweet-eet-eet-eet-eet-eet-eet!

- Former Phantom Planet drummer and acting whirlwind Jason Schwartzman has released a new solo record called Nighttiming. The first single, “West Coast,” is beautiful. So is the video, which stars skate legend Mark Gonzales. Only problem is that the footage wasn’t exactly Schwartzman’s to use. Ooops.

Idol: Compassion, Hope and Hell on Earth

Idolgives_2_2

‘Last night’s American Idol was the first of a "two night TV extravaganza" known as Idol Gives Back, on which our heroes sang "life anthem songs of compassion and hope." That description may have given you back the meal you just ate, but really, the purpose of the night was to raise money through calls that Ryan Seacrest said will "not only save your favorite contestants—they will also save lives." Jeez, as though it weren’t pressure enough to have to choose between your favorite of the top six, now the voting process is a life or death situation.
