Madge: Sweatin’ To the Brits

by

madonnaheadshot.jpg Madonna stuck her tongue down Britney Spears‘ throat in front of millions of TV viewers, so why shouldn’t she break a sweat to Brit’s music during her daily exercise routine? The 150-50-year-old superstar told New York’s Z100-FM radio station that like many other pop fans, she digs Blackout and blasts it while doing pilates and dance aerobics. Listen to the interview.

It also seems that she likes it better than her own songbook: “I’m not sure I can sing ‘Holiday’ or ‘Like A Virgin’ ever again,” she admitted during the interview. “I just can’t – unless somebody paid me like $30 million or something. [Maybe if] some Russian guy wants me to come to the wedding he’s going to have to a 17-year-old, you know it.”

Okay Russian guy, the ball’s in your court.

What songs by Madge and Brit get you in the mood to sweat?

Yes Announces A Summer Tour

by

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…

Rock of Love: Getting Drunk and Topless

by

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.

Jamie-Lynn’s Shotgun Wedding

by

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]

The Celebreality Interview – Catching Up With Heather

by

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.

Kimora & Russell Divorce for the 100th Time

by

russells.jpg

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?

Celebs Set Bizarre World Records

by

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.

American Idol: It’s Over, Chikezie

by

chizeke-lead.jpg

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:
