The first reviews of Iron Man, the Marvel adaptation directed by John Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr., have hit the web — and they could not be more glowing. Here are some choice excerpts.
Den of Geek:
Batman had better watch his ass.
Iron Man plays like an old-fashioned hit, full of character development, witty dialogue and a plot that plausibly makes sense.
Because of [Robert Downey Jr.], the movie is going to be the first big summer blockbuster.
What’s better than having Radiohead in your living room? Well, nothing. But second to that, we’re bringing an intimate clip to your computer screen from the band’s upcoming show Radiohead_In Rainbows_From the Basement, airing on VH1 on May 3rd at midnight. Above, the band play the gorgeously haunting “Reckoner,” shot in a studio as the band prepare to hit the road on a massive world tour.

Bret Michaels‘ current rock of love, Ambre, has taken to her MySpace blog to share her thoughts on life after Rock of Love 2. Here’s what we learn:
- She’s doing “fantastic” and “auditioning like crazy.”
- She plans on appearing at some of Bret’s upcoming shows: “We are working on our schedules together and scheduling dates on the cities I will be at.”
- She’s still with Bret and what she told us about their relationship holds true: they’re “dating” and seeing where things go.
- That said, don’t expect to see a Bret Loves Ambre reality show anytime in the near future.
- Another thing you shouldn’t expect, according to Ambre: Rock of Love 3. “Bret and I talked about this and as far as we know there will not be a Rock of Love 3 and if there is, it could possibly be with another rocker. He is looking to do another show called Bret Michaels’ Big Rock Road Show. Details and dates are not available at this time.”
Do stay tuned — when we know details and dates, so will you. [Ambre's MySpace Blog]

Tree got the boot last episode. Did you forecast her fall?

BritBrit may not be ready for primetime, but she’s heading back to the set of How I Met Your Mother for another guest spot. [DListed]
Holy crap – Slash from Guns N’ Roses has two sweet children. [Seriously? OMG]
Jay-Z steps in to defend LeBron James after Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson starts some beef with the b-ball star. [Crunk+Disorderly]
Baby Mama star/funniest lady ever Amy Poehler is a baby mama herself. Best movie promotion ever! Also, congrats. [Us]
John Mayer might be tappin’ Jen Aniston, which is awesome only because we want to use the name “Maniston.” [People]
Bikini-clad Brooke Hogan and her boy friend (boyfriend?) get frisky in a pool. [Egotastic]
Damn. Mischa Barton has no career AND no fashion taste. At least she’s got that DUI under her belt! [I'm Not Obsessed]
Heidi, Heidi, Heidi. Seriously, you change your boobs and face, but you can’t even change your clothes? After much gossipy fanfare, Heidi – and her boy-troll Spencer – showed up at the White House Correspondents dinner this weekend in Washington DC wearing the same exact outfit she had donned at an appearance earlier in the week. For shame! We’ve got the photographic evidence above as proof: on the left is our plastic heroine this weekend, and on the right she’s hawking her clothes at Kitson in LA, just a week earlier! You’d think she would have learned something while selling out in Hollywood.
We’ve got pics of all the other well-dressed stars who showed up at the White House this weekend below. For some shots of Heidi and Spencer desecrating the American flag at national monuments in our nation’s capital, click here! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
(Spencer & Heidi, Lauren Conrad, Rosario Dawson, Joel McHale, Jenny McCarthy, Donatella Versace, Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz, Ed Westwick, the Jonas Brosthers, Will.i.am, Pamela Anderson and President George W. Bush)
Above, check out a one-minute preview of I Know My Kid’s a Star breakout Rocky’s upcoming single, “Who’s the Bitch Now?” When we spoke to Rocky earlier this month, she told us, “If you think the tampon line gave everybody a heart attack, wait till everybody hears the words to my new song. It’s about bondage!” And so it is. The above video takes footage from I Know My Kid’s a Star to accompany a rough cut of Rocky’s single — she says that a sexy, official video is on the way. As it is, though, the language in the clip above is mildly not safe for work…or your booty.

Mimi’s been known to sport some bling in her day (butterfly rings, anyone?) but this rock – worn noticeably on her engagement finger this weekend – is makin’ a statement! I mean seriously, who could she possible be engaged too? The number one singer has been linked to Nick Cannon recently, but he’s a newly single guy who can’t possibly be looking to settle down right this second. Our guess: she’s engaged to herself. I mean seriously, once you’ve been with Mariah, how could you be with anyone else?
A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to write four lines of poetry for a chance to win tickets to Madonna’s April 30 concert in New York. We received a whopping 7,669 poems. Some are funny. Some are serious. We wish that we could give all of you a pair of tickets, but then Madge would have to move her show from the intimate Roseland Ballroom to Madison Square Garden. Here are the talented (and lucky) winners.
Jordan, from Illinois
I distinctly remember a road trip reflection
And the moving, grooving sounds of an Immaculate Collection
I’d cry “Track 15!” like a backseat DJ
Letting my Baptist minister father know his son was so gay
Bradford, from New Jersey
Through the years worship forced me to wear everything from jelly bracelets to Kabballah strings
I sported some really bad roots and even rocked some tooth bling
Blew my paychecks on Pilates to look lean and mean
But through it all, Madonna is and always will remain my mother_@#_ing Queen
Our girl Deelishis is back in the pages of Smooth with these brand-new photos that hit the web this morning (She showed of plenty of skin the last time she was in Smooth – click for the pics!) . We’re loving the Flashdance theme and we’re thrilled that the Flavor of Love 2 winner has taken her passion (for posin’ for sexy pics) and made it happen. Check out more of the kinda NSFW pics below (she’s clothed, but there’s a lot of skin!). [YBF]
