The 39th Annual NAACP Image Awards was star-packed, with guests including Janet Jackson, Eva Pigford, America Ferrera, Jordin Sparks, Romeo & Master P, Stevie Wonder, Omarion, Blair Underwood, Sanaa Lathan, Ruby Dee, and Audra McDonald.
Ugh. Dump this quote in the Too Much Info zone and leave it there, please. New mom Christina Aguilera posed for some pics with baby Max and her hubby Jordan for Hello magazine and then talked wayyyyy too much about her decision to have a C-section. Stomach this:
“I didn’t want any surprises. Honestly, I didn’t want any [vaginal] tearing. I had heard horror stories of women going in and having to have an emergency C-section [anyway]. The hardest part was deciding on his birthday. I wanted to leave it up to fate, but at the same time I was ready to be done early!”
Blergh. Christina also revealed that Jordan taped the entire thing, and that she cried when she first heard Max cry after giving birth. They were probably just tears of joy that came on after she realized that her vag was rip-free. Max is gonna LOVE it when kids at school dig up this interview and post it all over whatever social network they’re using in the future. Nice one, Mom.
Last night’s episode of Lost was all about implication – growing rather than showing. In its flash-forward bits we learned a tad about Sayid’s post-island life, which built up to the wham-bam cliffhanger moment. For instance, future-Sayid is dapper, an assassin, suave with the ladies, and able to rally after being shot. Oh yeah, he’s also WORKING FOR BEN!
Really, we could end it right here, because it’s tough to recall most of what happened after seeing Ben in Berlin with Sayid. How did Ben get off the island? And more importantly, why would Sayid be working for him? What do you think? Comment below with your thoughts. And read our list of last night’s biggest mindbenders.
Grace the cover of Sports Illustrated’s famed swimsuit issue and your stock will rise for sure. Get your rather voluptuous body painted and even more heads will turn. That’s what’s happening with Marisa Miller right now. Go ahead call her the hottie of the week, but remember, she’s always been seductive. How do we know? Just roll through the pictures in our flipbook. From Victoria’s Secret parties to hanging with Heidi to rocking thigh-high boots, Miller’s had it going on for a while now. And here’s our girl on the beach, back when she was part of VH1′s photoceleb show, The Shot.
Question: Did Marisa deserve to be on the S.I. cover? Who would you rather have seen?
They say that addicts often replace one vice with another, and it appears Lindsay Lohan has dumped her drug lust for men. The “actress” is back on the club scene, and she was spotted on Tuesday night attempting to get someone – anyone – to pay attention to her. The starlet first attempted to get Entourage star Adrian Grenier to dance with her, but her moves were negged with his date showed up. She then made a beeline for notorious man-whore Leonardo DiCaprio, who was hanging with Grenier’s co-star Kevin Connelly. “She was very flirty with Leo,” said a fellow club-goer. “But he wasn’t saying much to her.”
The guys bolted from the club and Lindsay was left alone with just her posse of girlfriends to grind with. But never fear, our heroine was seen drowning her woes in vodka and champagne. Maybe booze makes a better boyfriend? [NYDN]
In the video below, Shore-Tee, who was among the first girls to eliminated from Flavor of Love 3, puts Flav on blast in a big way (she drops at least 20 F-bombs, so the video isn’t for sensitive ears). She denies that she’s stupid, criticizes Flav’s skin tone, says he was “nobody before the show” (we’re guessing that It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back is not on Shore-Tee’s iPod) and, best of all, says, “So what, I got a motherf***in’ underbite? So f***in’ what!” It’s really harsh and a little awesome. If only she’d let us see this side of her on the show, she probably would have stayed around at least a little bit longer. Enjoy!
Q-Tee, Peechee, Savanna, Shore-Tee and Dymz were kicked off last episode. Did you forecast their falls?
Watch Flavor of Love 3 Monday, 9PM EST.
Uh oh, Aretha Franklin is p*ssed off at the Grammys and Beyoncé, and now B’s dad is getting into the mix and firing back at Re! Seriously, these divas love to duel, no matter their age. Here’s the deal: after Beyoncé introduced Tina Turner as “the queen” during the awards show, Aretha – known as the Queen of Soul – got her granny panties all up in a twist. “I am not sure of whose toes I may have stepped on or whose ego I may have bruised between the Grammy writers and Beyoncé,” she said. “However I dismissed it as a cheap shot for controversy.”
Um, okay. We have a feeling – if we may say so Ms. Franklin – that no one was trying to diss you, they were just trying to give Tina some much-deserved praise. Beyoncé’s dad agrees with us, and he weighed in yesterday. “Something this ridiculous – it’s childish, it’s unprofessional. And it’s a sad day when egos get bruised because somebody used the word king, queen, prince or princess.”
So much for R-E-S-P-EC-T! Guess you gotta give it to get it, these days. Whose side are you on – your girl B’s or your Queen’s?
For no other reason than sheer hilarious cuteness, we present you this video of an extremely fat cat from Japan. This cat is so fat that he can’t scratch his own ear. According to the rough translation of the audio at Daily Motion, the cat’s name is Papi Chan. He’s as heavy as a two-year-old baby. He’s so lazy that he relaxes when his owner gives him a shower — even though cats hate water. His owner is worried about the cat’s weight and health, and so decides to force him to exercise. As the mangled translation reads:
“Papi chan wont ever move, even when there is a ‘neko jarashii’ (a cat toy) he will only look at it.. He will really not move! if he will stay like this, it is worrysome.. DIET STRATEGY! First is the Pet running machine, this way it can be done easily, let’s try it! It looks not like running machine, but now a pet conveyer! Wow! He Moved! Oh.. He runs away.. Billy’s Boot Camp! Papi chan’s reaction.. wow, he’s watching, he’s watching! Then, his neck begin to move.. Good job! Then with just moving the neck.. he falls asleep.”
Seriously, watch until the cat is on the treadmill. You will not be sorry.
More Japanese fat cats after the jump.
It’s Friday, which means it’s the perfect day to enjoy this video of a tiny baby holding a guitar and busting out The Beatles song “Hey Jude.” We have no idea how the kid, named Hero, has such a good grasp on the lyrics at such a young age, but it’s a pretty solid rendition coming from someone still in diapers. Most importantly, it’s straight up adorable. Enjoy.
