They did it! They REALLY did it! Though neither star has confirmed their nuptials, every major press outlet is reporting that Beyonce and Jay-Z have officially become husband and wife. Even Mary J. Blige announced it at her concert on Saturday, so it’s gotta be true! The long-time couple tied the knot at Jay’s Tribeca penthouse after snagging a marriage license earlier in the week. The crowd was small, and guests – including Gwyneth Paltrow and B’s sister Solange – were asked to wear ivory. Thousands of Thai orchids were brought in for the event, and DJ Cassidy kept the attendees on the dance floor late into the night. Jay-Z had to perform over the weekend, and there’s no word of a honeymoon at this time. They’ll probably just end up on a yacht somewhere for a few weeks. You know how they do! Congrats to the happy couple – we hope they make it last. [People]
The fakest show in the history of fake shows returns Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008, when erstwhile singer-songwriter and barely-clad short lady Tila Tequila returns to MTV looking for love . . . or something like it. From the trailer for A Shot at Love 2 With Tila Tequila (see above), this season promises to be truly upsetting. Expect piercings, head-buttings, swearing, cops, vomit, blood and tears as 15 lesbians and 15 straight guys compete for the host’s affections. Take a look at those about to lose their keys to Tila’s mansion now. And for those of you out there wondering how on earth Ms. Tequila so quickly recovered from her heartache after her relationship with Bobby ended, look no further. She seems to have drowned her sorrows in a sea of bouncers and strippers. Isn’t that how everyone gets over a
non-existent bad break-up?

Lots of photos simply beg for a caption. This is one of ‘em. Whether it’s nasty or silly is up to you — we want you to feel free to read the minds of the celebs and weirdos in our images. This time: Participants of the Miss England Bikini Contest stroll the streets of London in their swim suits while others look on. What do you think the two on the left are saying?
We’re a nation of consumers. We’re a nation of music lovers. We’re a nation of people who need to pay more attention to our kids’ education. How to address all three points in one fell swoop? Tough question. But those in the Hollywood area have a chance to deal with the above subjects at Save The Music’s “Big Shopping Day” bash on April 26. It’s there that STM, the non-profit org dedicated to keeping music programs alive in public schools, will host an array of clothing designers and purveyors of beauty products. Lots of celeb hosts are usually on the prowl. This year the list stretches from Christina Applegate to Lenny Kravitz to Vanessa and Venus Williams. Participating designers include Alex Woo, Friend of Foe, Lisa Kline, Michael Stars, and Clandestine Industries (yep, the shop run by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz).
Perhaps the best part: Our girl Natasha Bedingfield will be performing during the day. You’re aware of how seductive she can be, right? I’m sure you are.
VH1.com caught up with pop legend and American Idol judge Paula Abdul to speak about her new song and video (see it here), “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow,” off of Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Vol. 1 The pop number is Abdul’s first in almost 12 years, and it placed her solidly back on the charts. We’ll be breaking down Abdul’s comments over the next week in a variety posts. In today’s installment, she discusses how the new song came to be, and how she knows longstanding Idol co-host Randy Jackson. She also talks about why you should never let Michael Bolton babysit your kids.
Paula Abdul on how she came to record “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow”:
I’ll tell you how it all started. For the past six seasons [on American Idol], Randy and I toyed with the idea of collaborating. One of the guys will be singing a song, and [Randy and I] will look at each other and go, “God, that would be a great cover.” But to focus Randy Jackson is like trying to catch a kid who’s at an amusement park and focused on getting cotton candy. It’s like, “Randy! Yo, Randy! Come on, Randy!” He’s a total politician. He’s always like, “Yo, we love this! We’re going to do this! We’re going to win! It’s great!” It goes on and on. I know he’s like this, so I’m always like, “Stop toying with my emotions.”
