The gentlemen from Pearl Jam had an excellent time worshiping at the alter of the Who on Saturday night when we taped this year’s Rock Honors, but don’t take our word for it. In the clip above, watch the grunge godfathers tear it up when they play “The Real Me” (and check out the typically scowling Eddie Vedder’s huge grin at the end).
Can’t wait for tomorrow night’s show? Check out live performances from the Who and the Foo Fighters on-stage, and read our behind-the-scenes coverage of the event. Want to hit next year’s in the flesh? Enter to win, and you just may end up there.
Just moments after the announcement of a new installment of Rock of Love, Bret Michaels‘ former rock of love, Ambre Lake has weighed in via her MySpace blog. Apparently, she has no hard feelings regarding the new show. Says Ambre:
Our split was a mutual decision and we both tried to make it work. But, between his touring and my work schedule, we just didn’t have the time to dedicate to our relationship. I completely support his decision in finding true love and what better way to do so than on the road where Bret spends the majority of his time. Bret is an amazing person and a true friend to me. We will always be there for each other personally and professionally…let’s all support Bret in this new venture. Bret is such a gifted, sincere and wonderful person, I know the 3rd time will be a charm!!

We can officially announce that Bret and Ambre are over! And what’s more, there’s a new installment of Rock of Love on the way! This time, Bret’s taking his show on the road…literally! Per the press release of Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels (coming in early 2009):
Rock star Bret Michaels tried twice to find love by filling a mansion with gorgeous women and having them compete for his heart. But after the final pass was handed out and the cameras stopped rolling, Bret’s picks didn’t work out. He and season two winner, Ambre Lake, really tried to make it work and although they still remain close friends, between his tour line-up and her work schedule there’s no time for a relationship.
“Bret has been very upfront and honest about how difficult maintaining a normal relationship may be for a touring rock star. He’s right, it’s absolutely an insane lifestyle and neither of us had the time to make it work,” stated Lake.
Now Bret is taking another stab at finding his perfect match in the ultimate rock and roller’s test…life on the road! Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels is set to premiere in early 2009.
“Seasons one and two of Rock of Love shattered ratings records and VH1 is so happy to have Bret back for another outrageous season. This time we’ll reveal Bret in his most comfortable setting- the infamous rock star tour bus.” said Jeff Olde, VH1’s Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production.
“We are excited to hit the road for another season of Rock of Love,” commented Executive Producers Mark Cronin & Cris Abrego, “Nobody knows their way around a tour bus like Bret Michaels, and we are confident that the audience will enjoy the ride.”
How will Bret find a woman to ‘rock his world’ when his world is always moving? VH1 is loading up a tour bus filled with beautiful babes and taking them on tour across the country. Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels takes contestants out of the mansion and on the road in true rock star style. This season will feature all-new ladies vying for Bret’s affection while traveling across America following Bret on a month-long tour. The contestants will face new challenges to see if they can handle the rock star life on the road.
This time as the bus pulls into each new city, the girls will engage in challenges specifically revolving around Bret’s life on the road. Whether it’s greeting aggressive groupies with a smile, enduring grueling schedules, dodging the advances of the warm-up band or even stepping in last-minute to fill in for delinquent roadies – these girls will be put to the test. This season, as the Rock of Love Bus heads into America’s heartland, the show will be taking the viewer to a whole new level with crazy, fun, over-the-top challenges- imagine Truck Stop Olympics or a dance contest on top of the St. Louis Arch or even a BBQ cook-off beneath the World’s Largest Thermometer. And also, back by popular demand…Mud Bowl 3. Americana at it’s finest!
Insanely awesome news, y/y?

Our man on the scene, Steve Pavlopoulos, was delivering up-to-the-minute reports from Rock Honors: The Who (which taped this weekend) on what you’ll see tomorrow, July 17th at 9 pm on VH1. Check out his behind-the-scenes look at what went down on rock’s front lines. The following report comes from the Foo Fighters‘ soundcheck, but watch the above video to see how it all pans out!
I’m sitting back by the celebrity trailer park that is home to the rock legends who have come out to play here at the UCLA campus for Rock Honors and everything appears to be going swimmingly (or at least that’s what they want me to think). The Garnier Green Room (sponsored by Garnier – get it?) is a hotbed of drinking, hors d’oevres, people who have VIP status and Rock Band. So far, we’ve seen Jack Black and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D fame, the Foo Fighters, Eddie Vedder, Kiefer Sutherland, and Gaz Coombes of Supergrass (more on that later). As far as I can tell, rock stars are unanimous on at least one thing: riding in electric golf carts rules. I sort of get it – your hair flies freely in the wind, you can silently maneuver the outside of the venue, and you can deliver high fives to any passerby who might want a little skin.
Heaven help us. All our favorite hotties in Hollywood are getting super fat for roles! How dare they? Megan Fox, for example, has revealed that she gained a whooping ten pounds for Transformers. She said,
“I should have toned up for ‘Transformers’ but I’m really lazy. I had to put on weight. I’d lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for ‘Transformers’ because Michael [Bay, the director] doesn’t like skinny girls.”
Now she eats “red velvet cake” and has dinner late at night in order to pack on the pounds. And it sure is working! Just look at that slender waist and tight butt – they’re massive! Another fattie freaking everyone out is Eva Longoria. The tabloids were spazzing recently because she’s been packing on a pound or two, and has turned into a big ol’ beast. But there’s a reason! According to People, “She’s making herself look like that as her character has let herself go.” And it shows! She looks like she swallowed a golf ball – or two. Disgusting! The only starlet not getting enormous these days is Kim Kardashian (see below!), whose boyfriend Reggie Bush is pressuring her to lose some weight, and even forced her to do beach-side hill sprints. Doesn’t he know those extra pounds are now in?
Although her voluptuous curves and round ass helped make her famous, not everyone loves Kim Kardashian‘s big badonkadonk. The New York Post reports that Kim’s boyfriend Reggie Bush reportedly has encouraged the star to lose weight. Kardashian was even allegedly overheard at an event on Sunday night saying that Reggie made her run the dunes in Manhattan Beach, CA.
But the woman who knocked J.Lo out of her number one spot for the celebrity with the best tush shouldn’t go too far. Do sidebends or situps, Kim, but please don’t lose that butt – it’s your best ASSet.
Or, he pretends to do so. Al Reynolds, who rode Star Jones‘ coattails into a big ass pile of her millions, has created his own YouTube channel to divulge all the deets about his life and his relationship with the infamous Star Jones. The videos are set up like an interview, with some lady playing the part of annoyingly cheesy tabloid reporter. It’s all very bizarre and contrived, which of course means it’s fun as f*ck to watch. Obviously the goal of his new channel is to garner good publicity – or perhaps, any publicity at all – even though no one really cares about this dude now that he’s not banging the former View co-host. But we did learn some interesting things: Al didn’t know all the wedding endorsements were ridiculous and thought it was just how celebs rolled, he and Star decided together that he would quit his job in banking so she could be his Sugar Mama, and while there is a pre-nup, but he can’t talk about it. Oh, and the once-happy couple doesn’t speak, obviously.
We were totally digging Al until he called their break-up “tender.” Not so into him anymore! Watch it here.
Awwww, look! It’s little Honor Warren, Jessica Alba‘s precious baby. As much as Alba and her permanent pout annoy the sh*t out of us, we have to admit we kinda love this tot. Her peaceful little face! Her full head of hair! We’re in love – dare we say we might even like her Mommy? Er – not so fast. Honor may be sweet, but Jessica is just so damn annoying. Example:
“I didn’t scream,” she says of giving birth. “It was really Zen.”
Blergh, of course it was. She probably was busy biting on her Balenciaga bag to keep from screaming. Everything Alba does is perfect and peaceful and totally ideal! “The labor was more like meditation,” she says. “I did yoga breathing. I was focused.”
Ugh, just like we’re focused on what an annoyingly perfect piece of ass she is. But still, the baby! So cute.
