Rock of Love: Hula-Hooping Striptease

by

What makes a rock star? Rock of Love‘s Bret Michaels attempts to answer that particular age-old question in the clip above. Here, the Poison frontman is entertained by two lovely strippers . . . er, women, who disrobe as they read the constitution of the United States. Then they dance with hula-hoops. And they say that the country suffers from a lack of civic pride. While that might be the case, we’re sure as hell not hurting for rock-star moments.

Rock of Love: Rockstar Moments

by

In today’s installment, Rock of Love’s Bret Michaels takes a few of his ladies out for a romantic, low-lit dinner. Actually, dinner’s totally in the dark. Hidden by the darkness, Bret takes the time to sample a few of the delicacies that aren’t on the menu. Is that very rock star of him? Depends on how you like your rock stars — slathered in saliva or sitting down politely with good table manners.

Neon Rulez & Justice’s New Video Proves It

by

There’s been a whole lot of neon in pop culture lately. First, Kanye West collaborated with Daft Punk on “Stronger,” made a video that combined the look of Akira with the narrative of Guns N’ Roses’ “Estranged,” and then showed up to the Grammys wearing a jacket that was literally so flashy it was designed to light up. Then Rihanna – who will appear on Kanye’s Glow in the Dark Tour — played the Brit Awards fronting new-rave darlings the Klaxons. Now comes French DJ duo Justice‘s new video (for “DVNO,” above). It’s the best video we’ve seen since the last time Justice released a video (for “D.A.N.C.E.”). Enjoy the outer-spaciness, kids. After the jump, watch Rihanna playing “Umbrella” at a rave that looks like it was thrown by wayward cast members from Tron.

American Idol Sex Scandal(s)?

by

hernandez.jpgWell, it was bound to happen — people in public walks of life just seem to have trouble keeping their pants on. This year’s crop of Idol contestants is no exception. Consider David Hernandez. The 24-year-old Arizona native used to strip for his supper, according to Gordy Bryan, the Phoenix-area manager of Dick’s Cabaret. The Associated Press reports Hernandez appeared “fully nude and performing lap dances for the club’s ‘mostly male’ clientele.” It isn’t clear if there will be repercussions for the contestant from Fox, but Hernandez was apparently entertaining the troops as recently as last September. (It’s worth keeping in mind that season two’s Frenchie Davis was disqualified because of some semi-nude photos she’d shot for an adult Web site.) It’s good to know he’s got a fall-back career, should the whole Idol thing not pan out.

In other news, Celebtv.com is reporting that racy-ish, lesbian-ish photos of Ramiele Malubay have surfaced on the Internets. The photos feature Malubay touching another woman’s fully clothed breast, and lying on a bed (again, fully clothed). All this compels us to introduce Celebtv.com to the difference between a mountain and a molehill: One is large, the other is small, and Ramiele Malubay, at least for the moment, is neither.

Flavor of Love World: Hot Diversion 6

by

MySpace has nothing on FlavorofLoveWorld.com! The site allows fans to rant about cast members, predict who’ll be eliminated next — and, um, upload their hottest pics and vids. Maybe we’re showing off, but VH1 has the sexiest users on the Internet and we’re proving it by highlighting Flavor of Love World users every day. Prepare to blush.

DVD Debut: Hirsch Heads to Alaska

by

New DVDs are released every Tuesday, which leads us to the eternal question: What should you buy? Our critic Charles Bottomley weighs in on every week’s must-haves and please-forgets.

Into the Wild
Sean Penn adapts Jon Krakauer‘s best-selling true tale about a Harvard-bound kid who goes off the grid and vanishes in the Alaskan wasteland. Penn never makes his mind up whether Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) is a genuine free spirit or a self-absorbed twit, but his American odyssey is a sincere tribute to purple mountains’ majesty and all that stuff. Great Eddie Vedder songs, too.
Extras: The two making-of featurettes include interviews with the major players and good stories about the on-location shoot, but are not quite substantial enough to merit the “two-disc” treatment.
Rating: Buy!
