Dina Lohan Wins “Screwing Up Kids” Award



Let’s start by saying congrats to Dina Lohan for winning the “Long Island Top Mom” award last night, and follow with a hearty WTF to the people that nominated her.

TOP MOM and Dina Lohan in the same sentence?

Words truly escape us. Dina seems to think she deserved the award (she showed up with her 82-year old mom in tow) and claimed to gawking photogs that she’s never partied with her mini-me Lindsay, ever. Note to Dina – getting hammered with your kid counts as partying! MamaLo also offered up this tidbit of advice that she often provides Lindsay – moms aspiring to destroy their tots with reality show work and rehab should pay attention! “Just to be honest and to stay morally correct,” she said. “And listen to your mother.” [Newsday]

The Celebreality Interview – Seezinz



“There’s no comparison. First of all, my head weighs about 8 lbs. Hers probably weighs a good 15 to 20,” says Seezinz. Hmmmm, who could she possibly be talking about? Below, Seezinz talks about the drama that may have led to her dismissal, her conscious effort to disprove stereotypes about black women, and her frequent use of the word “ghetto” (undoubtedly, to Flav’s chagrin).

Idolville: Elvis Archuleta, Going All the Way?


Last night the fab four selected tunes from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 most influential songs. Given the breadth of music history from which to choose, the performances showcased the competitors’ talent while revealing their own musical preferences. NOT! It seems all but Archuleta were thrown by the freedom the open-ended theme provided, choosing classics that were either out of their league or wildly inappropriate. Charm and skill may have saved Cook and Mercado, but Castro is surely head back to nowheresville – hey guy, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. More after the jump.

Mimi Wore White at Her Wedding



There she is, our beautiful, spontaneous bride. We must admit, we’re WAY more into her recent wedding outfit than the contraption she wore when she walked down the aisle in 1993 with Tommy Mottola. Peoples got the inside scoop on the nuptials, and Mimi told the mag that she and Nick “are soulmates. ” I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me,” she elaborated.

From the looks of things in that bottom pic at the beach, it looks like they are definitely “mates” of some kind. Congrats Mariah and Nick! Or should we call you Marick?

Tambourine Trouble: Castro’s Lyrical Lapse


Gotta know the words to the songs if you’re going to sing the songs. Gotta sing the songs if you’re going to win the contest. Gotta win the contest if you’re going to be an American Idol. Smells like Jason Castro is going to be relegated to wannabe status. He messed up the lyrics to “Mr. Tambourine Man” on last night’s show. After that, it’s pretty likely his ancient, empty street’s too dead for dreaming, know what I mean?

JC shoulda hit our Lyrics site, a wonderful resource that we supply gratis to all our visitors.

Or maybe he shoulda studied the real deal in action, which you can see after the jump.

Chris Protects Rihanna, Attacks Photog



Chris Brown went a little nuts protecting his precious Rihanna over the weekend, after a Florida photographer got too close with his camera. The drama took place as the couple was leaving the Kiss, Kiss crooner’s private b-day party, when Chris got pissed at the pap for snapping a pic and chased the guy away. His bodyguards also allegedly battled with the photog, and he is alleging that they knocked him to the ground and took his $3000 camera.

We’d say Chris’ defense was a little much – after all, he and Rihanna are just “friends!” But perhaps he went so ballistic because he was protecting his girlfriend. Even though they insist they’re not a couple, no one’s buying it, and Rihanna came pretty close to admitting their relationship truth in an interview with Elle. ” “We’ve always been friends,” she cooed about Chris. “But we’re very close now.”

Sure sounds like it!

Sting’s Show: Top 5 Rainforest Quotes



Everyone’s getting green these days. No one want to die. Smaller cars, less paper, better recycling – it’s finally sinking in. One dude that’s been ahead of the curve vis a vis the elimination of greenhouse gases is Sting, and as much as wiseacres once teased him as a strident do-gooder, they’re thanking now him for being on the case. Each year the singer and his wife Trudie Styler corral an array of musicians at Carnegie Hall and put on a fundraiser to further one of their prime concerns, repopulating rainforests around the world. This year it takes place in on Thursday, May 8. Feist, Billy Joel, Brian Wilson, James Taylor and many other are on board. Here are the show specifics. In a recent chat, Sting filled us in on a few facts about the subject that’s so close to his heart. Ready for five intriguing quotes?

1. “You can’t save the rainforest all at once; you have to save bits of it at a time, and hope the idea will grow. And it kind of has. We’ve raised $25 million over the past 20 years. We’re now on four continents – Asia, Africa, Central and South America. And we’re helping indigenous people to protect themselves.”

2. “It’s important that we conserve energy where we live, and it’s important that we reduce transport emissions. But greenhouse gases are caused by deforestation – by a lot. That comes from real facts. What’s warming up the planet is the destruction of the rainforest. More and more, people around the world are getting the idea that this is one planet and what we do one part of it effects all of us. It’s a growing realization – particularly among young people.”
