Gossip blog godfather Perez Hilton has found himself in some sort of sex scandal, after fellow blogger Jonathan Jaxson has come forward and accused Perez of goading him into making sex tapes and reneging promises of dirt for his blog. The two exchanged videos and numerous x-rated chats, and it appears (from reading their many instant messages) that Jaxson was desperate to get Perez to participate in some sort of staged phone-call for his blog, perhaps in an attempt to generate more traffic to his site. When Perez didn’t follow through on his promise, Jaxson made the IMs public (link NSFW), and the result is way more publicity than he would have gotten from his original plan.
The whole scandal doesn’t seem to be much more than a racy chat exploited by some dude to get famous, but we did learn some choice info – Perez is packing 8.5 inches of man down there! And hey, if you’re gonna become a celebrity for dishing dirt (and drawing on pics of celebs), there’s gonna come a time when you gotta take it, too.
Rock of Love 2‘s Catherine is an “extremely confident 45-year-old woman,” and she doesn’t care who knows it. Below, we talk more about her age, breakfast in bed and how she keeps haters from getting her down.
Uh oh. The National Enquirer is pointin’ the cheating finger at family guy Hulk Hogan, alleging that the wresting hero (and VH1 star) had an affair with daughter Brooke’s close friend, 33-year old Christiane Plante. When the tabloid caught up with Hulk’s supposed lover, she cried through her confession. “It was never my intention to hurt Terry’s and Linda’s wonderful, funny, sweet, loving, beautiful and talented daughter Brooke,” she said. “My relationship with Terry began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending. She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed.”
Hulk’s only comment was, “I’ve got nothing to say. I just want to protect my family,” but his daughter recently posted this cryptic message on her MySpace blog: “I’m going through one of the hardest issues i’ve ever had to deal with in my life…please keep me and my family in your prayers…i need all the support i can get.” Things certainly haven’t been easy for the Hogan clan, as word came today that the other driver in Nick Hogan‘s car accident case was sentenced in the case.
The Dave Clark Five were a key component of the British Invasion that swept America in the early ’60s. Following in the Beatles’ footsteps, they launched a string of hits up the charts that included certified stompers such as “Glad All Over,” “Bits and Pieces,” and “Anyway You Want It.” This year, on March 10 to be exact, the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so it’s sad to report that singer Mike Smith won’t be there. He died in Britain yesterday at the age of 64. Billboard reminds that the band was a powerhouse in its heyday, selling 50 million albums. Check Smith and the guys singing their smash ballad “Because” above. After the jump we’ve thrown the theme from their movie, “Catch Us If You Can.”
VH1 Classic will air the entire Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction show on March 10. Here’s a list of the other inductees.

Physicist Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies) could have explained it as slowly as he wanted, and I’m still not sure I would have followed all the action last night. Let’s just say that the episode, entitled “The Constant,” is not only one of the series’ top five, but maybe even – dare I say it? – numero uno. Desmond needed “a constant” to help him figure out stuff. Me too. I’m not gonna lie. I’ve got a list of questions. Make sure you comment today. I think we need some help with this one!
Like we told you yesterday, we got the brand new Gnarls Barkley video for you. You didn’t get us anything? That’s OK. We just want you to enjoy Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse tearing it up on this cable access-goes-Museum of Modern Art clip. Extra points if you can figure out who the host is. Hint: he brought something back a little while ago, and he’s not only inducting Madonna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he’s helping her with her new album Hard Candy.
A week and 31 million votes later, America has weighed in on American Idol‘s sounds of the ’70s. The show’s 20 remaining boys and girls grooved their way through some of music’s most lamentable hits. Four unlucky contestants were sent homeward in tears, despite Paula’s repeated assertions that being cast off in the second week is the best thing to ever happen to their careers.
Those four unlucky souls? Let’s take a look. Read more…
Yeah yeah, we love to call her nuts too, but let’s be real: if you lived in Britney Spears‘ shoes for 24 hours, you’d be batsh*t crazy in no time. Considering what the girl goes through, it’s a miracle she’s not way worse. Maybe we’ve just warmed up to Brit again now that her dad Jamie’s got her on the straight and narrow, but seriously, let’s give her some room to heal and get back to her regular ol’ Cheeto-guzzling ways. Then we can harass the crap out of her!
Take for example, the video above, in which poor little BritBrit is smothered by photogs – and some freak in a wig – galore while trying to get back into her Starbucks routine (we particularly enjoyed the moment she freaks out on her bodyguard). Haven’t we seen this occurrence a billion times before? The girl gets her daily 2200 calorie intake from one giant drink. Move on! Then, earlier in the day Britney was allowed to see her sons again (woohoo!), but was stalked from above by the ever-present paps. Maybe we should all agree to give the girl some space to get back to “normal.” Do we really want to be responsible for driving her to walk into gas station bathrooms barefoot again?
VH1’s newest show features Lance Krall as a dimwitted radio host who has some infuriating opinions and isn’t shy about expressing them. He also has a weekly blog here where he discusses his innermost thoughts. In this episode, Lance attempts to order free pizza and learns that his “fame” doesn’t have quite the cachet he thinks it does. We know: surprising.
