Elephants vs Donkeys: It’s Raining Campaign Clips

by

Didn’t take long for the McCain Girls clip to hit that one million mark – somewhere Martha Wash is plotting a comeback. But in true bipartisan form, the new Hillary thingee by VenetianPrincess (so alluring!) kind of balances its gains. We’re betting that it reaches similar heights before the sun sets tonight. Which political video has been your fave so far this year?

I Know My Kid’s a Star Preview: Rocky Cracks

by

I Know My Kid’s a Star‘s breakout personality, Rocky, earned that designation from her outrageous behavior. And, as you can see in the clip above (a preview of Thursday’s episode), there’s plenty more where that came from. In the early part of the clip, she mocks Gigi relentlessly, but it’s the second part in which she truly shines. She spazzes out in the confessional booth, ranting about getting no sleep “in this friggin’ wacked house.” “I wanna plug in my P.A. system for these whores…and their brats!” she shrieks, giving us her most memorable quote since, “What, my tampon’s showing?” We’ve said it before, but this time we mean it: this woman is truly amazing.

Bonus - Catch an extended clip of Rocky’s meltdown below:

Rock of Love 2: Daisy Friended C.C.!

by

In this week’s installment of Rock Star Moments, our fair-haired host implores young Daisy to spill her guts. You see, Bret Michaels suspects his winsome paramour with the throat tats is withholding information. Turns out she is. Specifically that she was such a big fan of Poison that she “befriended” Bret’s bandmate, guitarist and Celebreality star C.C. DeVille. Uh oh? We guess so. But how rock star-ish is this? On a scale of Tiny Tim to Alice Cooper, we’d give Daisy . . . oh, at least a Billy Squier.

Hear Mariah’s New Tune: Hello “Bye Bye”

by

mariahhand.jpg

Mariah has always had her sentimental side. So don’t be shocked that “Bye Bye,” the second track from E-MC2, is a pat on the back to those of us who have recently lost someone dear. Appropriately, her vocal sounds sweet on this one. She recently told Billboard that her billion dollar voice sometimes has a mind of its own.

“The days of rest are really it. I sit here with my throat sprays, and spraying water and drinking a lot of water is kind of the only thing I can do. A lot of people get obsessive with trying to take things for their throat ­ it doesn’t work the same for me. And I just got over the flu, so that can be something that will stop me in my tracks. But sometimes I’ll sing better with a cold, as long as it’s not in my throat. It’s weird. My voice has a mind of it’s own [Laughs]. You have to maintain it, and you have to have these vocal rest days. I’ll be doing what you’re doing, just writing notes instead of talking. It’s total silence, and sometimes I’ll whisper softly. It’s not good to whisper for your voice, it’s not good to stage whisper.”

Check Rhapsody for E=MC2 a week from today.

Britney Needs Cash This Badly?

Papa Spears – who deserves mad props for stabilizing his wild daughter – is determined to get her finances back on track with some work hawking furniture made in Denmark. How do you say “It’s just like a mini-mall” in Danish? Jamie is in cahoots with Claus Hjelmbak, who is the same dude who runs those big bashes at the Scandinavian Style Mansion, where Brit, Paris and LiLo have all gotten big bucks for hosting gigs. Sounds like a perfect business partner! Hjelmbak and Papa Spears have been allegedly working on the deal for a couple of months, but nothing has been finalized. We’re desperate for a new love seat and bedroom set, and we’d rather buy from Brit than Ikea. Work at it, girl! [NYP]

Rock of Love 2 Finale: Ambre’s Not Wearing Underwear

by

Far be it from anyone to dress up for the Rock of Love 2 finale (airing Sunday at 9/8c). In the clip above, Ambre reveals that she’s actually dressed down for her final moments spent with Bret before he makes his decision. Up till now, the general consensus has been that Ambre’s not wild enough for Bret. This might change everything.

OneRepublic Decodes “Stop and Stare”

by

After watching the awesome-but-hard-to-follow video for “Stop and Stare” by OneRepublic, we were left with some questions. For example — who’s the old guy? Where’s that creepy motel? Did this cost as much as a movie? Luckily, OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder is such a nice fellow, he stopped by to walk us through the imagery-laden musical epic, plus fill us in on the band’s next video.

1. This video almost didn’t happen.
“We had written a treatment originally, and it just got too complicated and over-budget,” Tedder said. Originally set on the Lower East Side, the band settled for the desert locale when director Anthony Mandler submitted his treatment. “We got [the expense of the video] down from $620,000 to $450,000…which for a new band – no bands are getting that kind of budget right now.”

2. Don’t worry; you’re not the only one confused.
“A lot of people have questions as to what [the video’s] about,” says Tedder. “Any time you see a shot of me, it’s me contemplating where I’m at in my life when the song was written. The grave and the priest represent death, and the girl who’s later pregnant represents birth and life.”
