Tila Snags Yahoo! Heir Courtenay Semel

by

Courtney Semel isn’t a household name (not even after appearing on Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive on E!), but she should be. She’s rumored to have gotten it on with Lindsay Lohan, and up until recently was dating Johnson & Johnson heir Casey Johnson. Semel’s an heir of sorts herself – her dad Terry was the CEO of Yahoo! But it looks like her most recent relationship has ended after a fling this week with Tila Tequila – and we’ve got the pic to prove it! Seems like they pair were caught getting a little flirty, huh!?

A source tells the VH1 Blog that Semel is a notorious playgirl – she even supposedly stole an LA guy’s girlfriend away from him a few years ago. Yahoo! [NYPost]

Tailor Made, Flav And Boobs: New York Dishes The Dirt!

by

At last, the truth is told: below we have New York talking about her breakup with Tailor Made for the first time on the record. And there’s so. Much. More. Below are two excerpts from an interview we conducted with VH1′s HBIC last week. In the first, she talks about her new show, New York Goes To Hollywood (premiering Monday, Aug. 4 at 10/9c on VH1), making it as an actress, her recent weight gain and her plans for her boobs. In the second and juicier part, New York gives us her thoughts on how Flavor Flav ended Flavor of Love, how things really went down with Tailor Made and, now that she’s a single woman, if she thinks there’s a possibility for an I Love New York 3. She tells us repeatedly that she doesn’t want to “dish dirt,” but come on…we know her better than that!

For those who can’t view the video, have no fear: later this week, we’ll post a transcript with even more dirt!

Wino Hospitalized For Mixing Pills

by

Amy Winehouse headed back to her home away from home last night – the hospital. The singer was packed up in an ambulance and whisked off as her dad looked on and friend Remi Nicole freaked out. The doctors released Amy this morning, and her dad summed up the drama, saying, “She’s fine, she just mixed up her medication.’

Translation: she’s high on crack. [DailyMail]

The 10 Most Controversial CDs Ever

by


Let’s face it: a little controversy never hurt record sales. Nas knew that when he announced that a certain racial epithet would be the title of his ninth record, polarizing the hip-hop community and igniting a firestorm of commentary on the appropriateness of the name. After pressure from his record label, he relented, changing the title to simply Nas. It is now the number one album in the country (listen to it on Rhapsody).

He, of course, isn’t the first artist to push people’s buttons with an album or a song. Check our list of other performers who have clashed with the masses in the name of art.

Here are 10 of the most controversial albums ever.

New York Goes to the Internet

by

The first episode of New York Goes to Hollywood is online (see the first act above and watch the rest here), and it’s a doozy. Watch New York angrily search for assistants, lazily hit the gym and desperately audition to a crowd of less-than-enthusiastic Hollywood big-wigs. It would seem that in Hollywood, New York is completely out of her element. Considering her name, maybe that’s not so surprising, after all.

Remember, New York Goes to Hollywood premieres Monday, Aug. 4 at 10/9c on VH1.

The Celebreality Interview – Luke Campbell (Part 1)

by

You may know Luke Campbell as Uncle Luke, leader of the 2 Live Crew. You may know him as the man who created the parental-advisory label for explicit content on CDs. You may know him as the man who fought an obscenity charge all the way up to the Supreme Court…and won. Hell, you may just know him as the man who coined the phrase, “Pop that p****.”

But you probably don’t know him as a businessman and you definitely don’t know him as a father. All that will change next week when his reality show, Luke’s Parental Advisory debuts Aug. 4 at 10:30/9:30c on VH1. The show finds him juggling an adult-entertainment empire, a fiancĂ©e and two teenagers. We’ll have more on the show itself next week, but for the first part of our interview with Luke, we look back on his career with him. He and the 2 Live Crew have been accused of misogyny and homophobia throughout the years. Below, Luke answers those claims and explains the greater purpose of the art that made him a household name.

Brangelina Likes Bono Better Than You

by

Sorry, regular peeps. There is absolutely no chance you’ll be considered for the role of god-father to the new golden gods, Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. Super famous kids need super famous godparents, and Bono‘s getting the job, soley for the reason that it’s pretty f*cking cool to get money on your birthday every year from the dude who sings “With Or Without You.” Also, Brad and Angie are star f*ckers. Need examples?

1. A source says: “They have been friends for years. Brad is a massive U2 fan and told Bono how much he admired him when they were introduced at a party a few years back.”

2. The same source reveals: “Angelina is inspired by Bono’s humanitarian work and gets on with his wife Ali Hewson. Ali’s given Angelina some clothes from her ethical clothing range Edun.”
