Hip-Hop king Russell Simmons and his model girlfriend Porschla Coleman have ended their new agey love, and Simmons supposedly sent her packing, finishing the deed with a lengthy post in his Huffington Post blog. In it he describes their veggie-loving connection and their yoga practice, which culminated in Porschla receiving her teaching certification thanks, of course, to Russell, who provided a scholarship at her yoga studio through which she funded her studies. But he’s now setting his pretty young thing free to downward dog on his own for a while. Here’s a snippet of his rambling farewell:
A little over a year ago, I met a very sweet and beautiful girl in Atlanta at a party for my book, Do You!. We talked at length about our vegan diets and common interest in yoga. She too was feeling the shift that is happening in America right now of people looking inward…Eventually, she decided to pursue a high certification of yoga that would… license her as a teacher of Jivamukti Yoga. It has been inspiring to see her work so hard towards such an impressive goal. Her name is Porschla Coleman.
He ends his post with ” Congratulations, Porschla, and thank you for the inspiration.” He forgot to add, “Thank you for letting me dump you and then try to make myself feel better by posting this rambling mess about how great you are. But I’m just not that into you. Namaste.” [BET]
A little while back, we told you about the Battle of the Blondes. Seems Jessica Simpson got Pam Anderson‘s bikini in a bunch when she wore a t-shirt that read “Real Girls Eat Meat.” The thrice-married, sex-tape-makin’ Anderson countered by calling Simpson a “bitch and a whore.” Jessica held her tongue, but friends are saying Jess isn’t taking it too well.
Described as “disgusted” and “beyond mad,” a friend of Simpson’s told British tabloid The Sun that she isn’t allowed to say anything. “Her folks told her NOT to make a big deal of it – as that would only get Pamela the press she’s so desperate for.” If it’s any consolation, Simpson can stuff her trap with extra bacon cheeseburgers, while Pam settles for attention from Criss Angel.
Britney Spears and Madonna are going to hook up again, five years after they famously kissed at the MTV Video Music Awards. The “Gimme More” singer is reteaming with Madge to film a video segment which will air as part of Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet Tour, which kicks off in the U.S. October 4th.
A source close tothe projecttells VH1.com exclusively, “It’s being shot this week and it’s a video piece for Madonna’s tour.”
The pop-star-on-the-mend seems to be taking all the right steps easing back into show business slowly, with guest appearances on “How I Met Your Mother” and shooting footage for the Pussycat Dolls’ “When I Grow Up” video last month, which unfortunately was left on the cutting-room floor at the last minute.
Brooke Hogan‘s living on her own, working on her singing career, and apparently not neglecting her ab routine. She took time out of her hectic schedule to strike a few poses in Miami, leaving little to her fans’ imagination. Oogle pics below.
Tune into the premiere of Brooke Knows Best on VH1 this Sunday @ 10PM EDT.
Avant oddballs the Flaming Lips are gearing up for their performance at next week’s Rock Honors, where they’ll be taking on the Who (a dream come true, for frontman Wayne Coyne). Known for their on-stage spectaculars, the band — who’ll be joining the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Incubus in kneeling at the altar of the Who — will also be celebrating something else: after seven years, the band have finished working on Christmas on Mars, a concept film about the first Christmas on the Red Planet, starring the band. They plan on screening the film this summer at a series of shows.
So what to expect from the Lips’ Who tribute and their latest foray into film? Just like the band they’re honoring, weirdness and spectacle, and lots of it. If you can’t wait until next week, check out the craziest on-stage antics of rock and rollers here.
This might just be the greatest interview of the century. In a chat with Complex Magazine, Flavor Flav revealed all the stuff we wish we never knew about him – like the worst prank he ever played and the deets of his virginity loss at age 6. Holy crap. Read below for our favorite moments, and check out the entire amazing thing here.
On the time he ate a booger as part of a prank, and how he got revenge:
For the person that put the booger on my hamburger, I got him back by taking some dog sh*t and putting it on the Ritz Crackers and he ate that sh*t.
Discussing his most prized possession:
When we were over in Switzerland, they made a Flav Coo-Coo clock. And when it strikes three o’clock you got little Flav that comes out and say “YeahhhhhBoy! YeahhhhhBoy!”
Detailing the disturbing tale of losing his virginity at six-years old:
Where did I lose my virginity? I lost my virginity in the bushes on a box…A girl and me were having sex on a box in the bushes, in some big tall bushes….This was when I was real, real, real, real, young….I lost my virginity when I was 6 years old…Because you know we learned to have done the nasty back in the days, and me and this girl we experiment, we were experimenting, and my little joint got hard, I penetrated for about a few seconds.
Serial monogamist Drew Barrymore and her boyfriend, that dude from the Apple commercials who always seems way too smug about MacBooks, have ended their love affair. Apparently when they took a second to stop making out and humping all over each other, they realized that they had NOTHING in common.
Barrymore’s people confirmed the break-up, and a source says Drew and Justin Long “are still friends,” which totally means something terrible happened between the two and they haven’t spoken for weeks. Maybe Justin discovered Drew secretly working on a PC, or maybe Drew got sick of dating a dude who only works in commercials. She was married to Tom Green ya’ll – this is a girl who demands class from her men! Drew moves on to new guys faster than you can say Poison Ivy, so we expect to see her making out with a new dude in 3…2…1…Now!
Congrats to the always sweaty, always stinky actor Matthew McConaughey and his way hot girlfriend Camila Alves, who became the parents of a healthy baby boy yesterday evening. The unnamed tot (who will definitely be one handsome SOB in a couple of decades) weighed in at 7 pounds, four ounces, and was surely embraced by his new dad as the future of naked drumming. We expect to see some serious father-son bonding from these two!
Back when they announced the pregnancy in January, Matt had this to say on his blog:
“We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being a mother and a father, and sheparding him or her through this life.”
And we are stoked for them. Hurray!
Megan Fox fans rejoice — and 90210 fans mourn: the Transformers hottie and her fiance Brian Austin Green have split. Rumblings of Fox’s canoodling with current co-star Adam Brody had been reported from the set of their new movie Jennifer’s Body, but we’re pretty sure the split had to do with her finally realizing she’s way out of his washed-up league.
Here’s the aptly named Fox’s vital stats.
