Not content with being known to the world as a curvaceous, platinum actress, Scarlett Johansson is branching out into the world of singing. For her first album, she’s tackled the Tom Waits songbook, and for the first video, she’s created a bleached out, weary look at a day in the life of a starlet. Fittings, make-up, commercials for something, visiting with author Salman Rushdie and forlornly looking out the window are the action in “Falling Down”….tough life!
Anybody else think this has a Lost in Translation feel to it, except this time she’s the worn-down Bill Murray character?
News alert! Heidi Montag is NOT a robot, even though her looks suggest otherwise. The Hills camera-hog – who spends most of her time posing in front of random monuments while decked out in practically no clothes – let the tears flow in an interview while discussing the death of her brother. Decked out in layers of makeup and fake hair, we actually see a glimpse of the really Heidi, who is mourning not just brother, but the fact that certain friends (yes, Lauren Conrad) never reached out to her following her loss. Did we just learn that LC is that much of a b*tch? Uh oh, we may join Team Heidi after all. [via PerezHilton]
Let’s see…they’re both trashy and they’ve both made a ton of cash off of sex. So why are Ashley Alexandra Dupre and Joe Francis battling each other in court? Ashley, whose best known as former Governor Eliot Spitzer‘s preferred call girl, is suing the Girls Gone Wild creator, after his company dug up and used tapes of Dupre that she made for the video porn biz as a high school student while on spring break. Francis, who just got out of jail, issued the following statement: “She’s seeking $10 Million for topless photos taken in front of a room full of people, including two newspapers and multiple crews we had in the room. These images were taken in public places and contain no sexual contact. We expect to triumph in this matter and continue to offer the best and hottest girls.”
$10 million! Not a bad asking price. And hey – she could get it by taking her clothes off, or leaving them on and going to court. We’re kinda proud of Ash for choosing the latter. [ET]
In this episode, the girls take out their frustration on male domination…
…with sexy results!

Now Thing 2 is leaving, after not a lot of explanation from Flav. Do you think she really wasn’t independent enough for him? Did Flav make a mistake in letting go a girl who was clearly there for him?

The first reviews of Iron Man, the Marvel adaptation directed by John Favreau and starring Robert Downey Jr., have hit the web — and they could not be more glowing. Here are some choice excerpts.
Den of Geek:
Batman had better watch his ass.
Iron Man plays like an old-fashioned hit, full of character development, witty dialogue and a plot that plausibly makes sense.
Because of [Robert Downey Jr.], the movie is going to be the first big summer blockbuster.
What’s better than having Radiohead in your living room? Well, nothing. But second to that, we’re bringing an intimate clip to your computer screen from the band’s upcoming show Radiohead_In Rainbows_From the Basement, airing on VH1 on May 3rd at midnight. Above, the band play the gorgeously haunting “Reckoner,” shot in a studio as the band prepare to hit the road on a massive world tour.

Bret Michaels‘ current rock of love, Ambre, has taken to her MySpace blog to share her thoughts on life after Rock of Love 2. Here’s what we learn:
- She’s doing “fantastic” and “auditioning like crazy.”
- She plans on appearing at some of Bret’s upcoming shows: “We are working on our schedules together and scheduling dates on the cities I will be at.”
- She’s still with Bret and what she told us about their relationship holds true: they’re “dating” and seeing where things go.
- That said, don’t expect to see a Bret Loves Ambre reality show anytime in the near future.
- Another thing you shouldn’t expect, according to Ambre: Rock of Love 3. “Bret and I talked about this and as far as we know there will not be a Rock of Love 3 and if there is, it could possibly be with another rocker. He is looking to do another show called Bret Michaels’ Big Rock Road Show. Details and dates are not available at this time.”
Do stay tuned — when we know details and dates, so will you. [Ambre's MySpace Blog]
