F*ck barbecues! Feast your eyes on the number #1 reason we’re excited for summer: this Tila Tequila cover of King magazine, coming out June 3. The rag says, “ Along with her steamiest shoot yet, the pint-size freak comes clean about her criminal record, stripper days and schoolgirl fantasies.”
Hot fun in the summertime! [via Bossip]
Expect the performances at this year’s Rock Honors to be on the physical side. When you’re saluting a band like the Who, you’ve gotta bring plenty of whomp to the table. So it makes sense that Pearl Jam, the Foo Fighters, and the Flaming Lips are three of the acts slated to put a spin on the veteran Brit band’s songbook. Each of them have honed their gargantuan sound, stressing passion at every turn. Eddie Vedder and his brood have actually made quite a dent with their mighty cover of “Love, Reign O’er Me,” from the Who’s Quadrophenia disc. Of course the Who will be playing a sizable chunk of their own music at the show, too. This is the first Rock Honors show to celebrate one band.
Rock Honors takes place in Los Angeles on July 12. It premieres on VH1 and VH1 Classic on Thursday, July 17 at 9/8c.
Looks like flying to Miami and sending Jennifer Aniston flowers has John Mayer a little hard up for cash. Yesterday, while shopping at a camera store in Los Angeles (no doubt to create some hilarious commentary on the paparazzi by taking pictures of them taking pictures) Johnny charged a fan $10 to pose for a picture. Fan, whoever you are, there are much better things to spend $10 on.
Elsewhere in the world, John’s lady friend Jennifer Aniston is allegedly telling anyone who’ll listen that John is infinitely better in the sack than Brad Pitt ever was. “Jennifer is calling John the best ever lover,” said the undoubtedly reliable source to the National Enquirer.
Holy sh*t! The first picture from Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz’s wedding has been revealed and IT. IS. BORING. Sure they may have had 10,000 black roses and crystal chandeliers, but did they have to keep their weird, matching comb-over hipster hairdos? Honestly, Wentz’s dog looked the hottest. As for the pic of Jessica grinding her butt all over her ex Tony Romo? We’ve seen it all before. That girl does desperation better than she does music. Work it! [People]
When you begin watching American Idol it’s somehow hard to believe that the thousands of hopeful souls who audition, the 24 contestants who start it off, and the 12 who really make it will ever be whittled down to two singers. But here we are: the dark horse David Cook (several weeks ago I called him too paunchy to stand a chance; I stand corrected) and the white knight David Archuleta (whom I, and every other insightful viewer, called out as the winner at the start). They’ve got three rounds to brawl, and the producers can’t help but play up the boxing metaphor, enlisting the “Are you ready to rumble?” guy for pugilistic sake. Let’s not mince words: three songs, three performances, one inevitable outcome. Here’s what happened last night:
Gasp! Beyonce “only drank water” at Kanye West‘s concert after-party here in NYC last week. B normally likes to nurse a glass or two of champagne while out on the town, but this time she swore off the booze. Well obviously, this is a sure sign that she MUST be knocked up. Other things that Beyonce did that night that surely prove she’s preggers?
- touched her stomach
- wore a slightly baggy shirt
- held hands with her husband Jay-Z
- went to the bathroom
- ate dinner
- applied lip gloss
OMG. It’s true. She MUST be pregnant – all signs point to yes! [NY Post]
Kim Kardashian wants you to know that she never drinks! It’s not a political choice or anything, she just hates the taste of booze. Yes, that means she chooses her ridiculous outfits while completely sober! Amazing, huh. Kim is revealing these exclusive life deets on her site, so we’ve dug through the bikini pics and Dash rambling to pick out the most interesting Kim facts, just for you!
- Sister Khloe is 5 feet 10 inches tall! Think Kim is jealous?
- Her favorite step brother is Hills man-ho Brody Jenner. Think she and Lauren Conrad get along?
- Kim got Jessica Alba (just how did they become friends?) a “blinged out pacifier” for her baby shower, as well as some other trashy goodies. Classy!
- Kim also reveals that she and her hot boyfriend Reggie Bush love to post pics of themselves, gushing that “We enjoy sharing our private moments.” Here’s our favorite one of the Thanksgiving meal she cooked for her man, which apparently includes two remote controls. Sounds like a romantic dindin!
(The VH1 Blog knows very little about the law. So we’ve solicited Mark Muro, a founder of the California law firm Muro & Lampe, Inc., to keep a running tab on which side has the advantage in the R. Kelly child pornography trial. Check back daily for updates.)
The pied piper of R&B, R. Kelly, finally had his child pornography trial open in Chicago six years after he was initially indicted. His defense? A case of mistaken identity. “Robert Kelly is not on that tape,” Kelly’s attorney, Sam Adam Jr., told the jury. “I stand before you on May 20, 2008, to tell you [R. Kelly] is not on that tape.” Adam claims that a mole on Kelly’s back will prove the singer’s innocence. Adam also claims that the alleged victim (whom he referred to as a “wonderful person”) is not in the tape; but instead, a paid prostitute. The defense appears to involve a claim of two layers of mistaken identity.
The tape was played for the jury this afternoon over Adam’s objection. In light of the contention that the tape provides visual evidence that Kelly is not depicted in the tape, I’m confused as to the attempts to keep the tape out of evidence. Seeing as the video is widely known as “The R. Kelly Sex Tape,” the defense better hope that the jurors have been living under a rock for the last six years. I anticipate the making of yet another closing argument culminating in a rhyme ala O.J. Simpson’s lawyer. (“If the glove don’t fit you must acquit.”) Here’s a couple of suggestions: “With no mole on the back, the prosecution’s case must crack” or “No mole on the back, the case is whack.” — Mark Muro
Defense = -1
Prosecution = 0
Certified hottie Jessica Alba and Luckiest Man on Earth Cash Warren were married in a private, low-key ceremony on Monday morning, Alba’s publicist is confirming. According to People magazine, Alba and Warren went to the Beverly Hills courthouse where they applied for a marriage license, waited forty minutes for the paperwork to be processed, and were married with no other guests present. The bride wore blue. Alba is expected to give birth to the couple’s first child this summer.
Remember that whole scandal involving radio star Wendy Williams‘ talent booker and the sexual harassment suit she filed against Wendy’s husband Kevin Hunter? Well things have taken a turn for the nasty with the release of an alleged sex tape featuring Hunter. It leaked onto the web yesterday, and while the identities of the horndogs in the video have not been confirmed, Wendy supposedly had a serious meltdown about the mess yesterday. Maybe it’s because the sex video was sent out to gossip peeps from her personal email address! Sounds like someone hacked into her account to do some dirty work. It’s unclear if the tape’s leak is connected to the sexual harassment drama, but one thing’s for sure – things are getting ugly. [NecoleBitchie - NSFW!]
