While booting Courtney on Sunday’s episode of Charm School, Mo’Nique told the budding comedian, "Let the ladies who really need it, get it." Truer words have rarely been spoken on the show. Courtney is poised, witty and down-to-earth. In other words, she has charm to spare.
After the jump, Courtney talks about her elimination ("That was some bulls***!"), her upcoming time on the road with Mo’Nique and why wet panties make the world a better place.

“Hey You” is a new Madonna song, which sounds distinctly Christmas-y — surprising, since it was produced by Pharrell. But whatever, and we’ll save lap dance puns for the next time Madonna winds up at a strip club for research. It’s available online now to download for free, legally, as part of the promotion for Al Gore’s Live Earth bonanza, the seven-continent-concert that’s going to go down July 7th. Madge will perform “Hey You” as part of Live Earth, but don’t download the track just to memorize the lyrics. Get it now because for each of the first million downloads, MSN will donate 25 cents to the Alliance for Climate Protection. Nice work, Madonna.

In a crushing blow to all who believe in justice and light, it has been announced that Paris Hilton may end up serving just 23 days in jail — roughly half of her 45-day sentence. Nooooooo! Whyyyyy?
Well, actually, there’s a rational explanation: "Under Los Angeles county regulations she will receive good behavior credits at the start of her sentence. Provided she behaves well, she could be released after 23 days," reports a mouthpiece for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Still, I ask: Nooooooo! Whyyyyy?
While the reduced-sentence is still up in the air, what is for sure is that Paris will be kept in a "special-needs housing unit," away from the general population of the prison. And so, it turns out that Paris has every right to act entitled because, clearly, she is entitled.
All together now: Nooooooo! Whyyyyy? [AFP/Yahoo! / Image credit: Getty]
In addition to feeling inappropriately about his daughters, pop svengali Joe Simpson has professed his love for Jessica‘s new man, John Mayer. "I want her to be happy. I’m always a fan of his. I love him; he’s got great music," Simpson told People. Explaining the secret to what makes their relationship work, Simpson cites the lack of competition: "He’s a guitarist; that’s his thing. Jessica is a singer. She doesn’t play guitar, so there’s no competition." In other Simpson sib news, Ashlee‘s going into the studio with ubiquitous producer Timbaland, the other guy from the Neptunes who’s not Pharell, Chad Hugo, and John Legend. Ash is going for a more "soulful" sound on this album, so that means no power-pop proclaiming she "didn’t steal your boyfriend." Cryptically, though, Ash predicts, "I’ll probably have my heart broken and then end up with one of those kinds of songs on there." Is there trouble in paradise with Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz?

Our ramp-up to Rock Honors (Thursday, May 24) always includes revealing chats with the music’s stars. Road Tales focuses on some the silliness (and sex) that goes down when artists are on tour.
Peter Criss isn’t one of rock’s best drummers, but back in the day the KISS pounder was always allowed an extensive spot for solos during a show. Anthrax’s Scott Ian, who toured with the make-up men years ago, explains the kind of carnal pleasures that took place stage left and stage right.
