You know their songs: “Your Move.” “Owner of a Lonely Heart.” “Roundabout.” Now you’ve got the chance to catch Yes live. In honor of their 40th anniversary, the prog rock titans are hitting the road for their “Close to the Edge and Back” tour, a 25-date jaunt coming to a city near you. Lead singer Jon Anderson recently stopped by our place with some talented pupils from the School of Rock, a nation-wide program promoting musicianship among kids. They played a rendition of a big Yes hit, with a John Lennon bonus number tacked onto the end. Check the clip above to see one of rock’s most distinct voices, and take the jump for tour dates. Check back on April 10th, where we’ll have contest details that might land you on stage with Yes! Read more…
George Michael didn’t make a video as much as a pants-off dance-off for his song “Flawless,” from 2004′s Patience. Check it out, and stream George Michael’s TwentyFive a full week before it’s in stores!
Heather‘s back! Today’s Rock of Love moment doesn’t even involve our titular rock star. Bret Michaels is nowhere to be seen. Instead, it’s his familiar, Heather, who provides the motive for craziness. In this installment, we learn that rocker-ish behavior involves shots, toplessness, and plenty of tanned bellybuttons on display. (Sidebar: While we’ve noticed plenty of belly jewelry on the Rock of Love girls, we haven’t seen any bellybutton starburst tattoos. What happened to those?) Is this behavior befitting a rock star? Or is it more befitting an after-hours seafood buffet at the Times Square Hooters in the middle of a heatwave? We’re at a loss.
Hey ya’ll! Jamie-Lynn Spears, the 16-year old mama-to-be (and Brit’s sis) is getting married! Her main man, Casey Aldridge, 18, has allegedly proposed to his knocked up sweetheart, though there’s no word on a ring or a date. Who cares! She’s walking down the aisle way before Britney did, which must be tearing her big sis up. There’s nothing like being upstaged – at everything! – by one’s little sis, but J-L’s got it down. And you know what that means – her custody case is gonna be that much crazier, and probably happen before she turns 20. [Us]
Since Heather busted in the Rock of Love 2 house and immediately took over this week’s episode, there was no way we couldn’t talk to her. Below, Heather dishes the dirt on the girls, an unaired make-out sesh Bret and how thinks of this Rock of Love season compares to last. She also told us plenty about what’s coming up for her, and though we can’t get too specific too soon, it’s safe to say that there’s plenty more Heather to come. The world is her sorority — we just gawk at it.
How many times can one couple announce their divorce? We’ve lost count, but we’re guessing Kimora Lee Simmons and her super-mogul ex-hubby Russell have done it, oh, a gazillion times, including today. We get it! You guys split up! Didn’t this happen in like 2006? Aren’t you both busy getting pregnant and doing yoga with your new (and might we add, much hotter) significant others? Earlier this month, Kimora said, “I’m in the paper every single week – that I had a fight with my ex-husband, or that I was mad at one of his girlfriends, or that I’m pregnant, or that I demand Fiji water … Lies upon lies upon lies.”
Oh Kimora. Admit it – you like being in the paper every week. Are we the only ones who suspect that the divorce reports pop back up every time our girl needs some publicity? Or were ya’ll too busy buying her new perfume – which launched last week – to notice?
Tommy Lee got up to a different kind of mischief in the skies recently. Undoubtedly already a member of the Mile High Club, Mr. Lee commissioned the first ever tattoo administered at a high altitude. The Motley Crue drummer had a peacock tattooed on his thigh for the entirety of a five hour flight. Ouch.
With this, and the recent news that Fall Out Boy were attempting to play a concert on every continent to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, it got us thinking about some of the other records that celebs have already set, whether Guinness acknowledges them or not.
Mariah Carey — Shortest Skirts Worn on Stage
Paula Abdul — Most Unintelligible Sentences Strung Together During a Live Television Broadcast

Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt — Most Shameless and Exploitive Usage of Children, Animals and Holidays for Self-Promotion
Kanye West — Most Humble Artist
With over 30 million votes cast, last night we saw one of our top 10 American Idol finalists go home. But in true Idol fashion, before the loser was revealed, every contestant was subject to some mild humiliation. In between promotions for their corporate sponsors, we saw a surprising bottom three get “sent to the stools” (ew?), as well as some neat ads from their corporate sponsors and tax-deductible contributions. Light-hearted phone-in questions and a guest visit from former Idol contestant Kimberly Locke did little to quell the bubbling paranoia and anxiety amongst our final 10 as they counted down to the moment of elimination. Let’s take a look:
Heidi Montag Searching for Model Lookalikes
Are you blond and made of plastic? If so, you could be a model for Heidi’s new fashion line! [Us]

Now all she needs to do is stop smoking, cut her hair and get rid of those stained dresses and she’ll be in almost great shape! [PopSugar]

It was a rough ride for Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora last night. The Jersey boy was driving a lost highway in L.A. when the cops pulled him over for swerving erratically in his black Hummer. When they found that the rocker couldn’t pass field sobriety tests, they carted him away. Three women, one of whom was Sambora’s 10-year-old daughter, Ava, were in the car at the time. The 48-year-old has had both alcoholic and romantic woes of late. He was in and out of rehab in 2007, and has gone through breakups with wife Heather Locklear and girlfriend Denise Richards.
