R. Kelly’s Underaged Flame Speaks Out

by

rkelly.jpgWho’s ready to get creeped out?! We are! The husband of R. Kelly‘s ex-publicist spoke out last week on the radio about his daughter’s relationship with the controversial crooner and caused quite a stir. His wife, Regina Daniels, quit working for the star late last year amidst whispers that her 21-year old step-daughter had done dirty deeds with her former client. Her hubby George backed this up in his interview and said he was speaking out for “the public” because “it doesn’t have to be a superstar, it could be the guy on the corner.” But Kelly – through his new publicist – released a statement, and had this to say about his accusers: “The fact is that they had no problem with the relationship — indeed, they encouraged it — while Ms. Daniels was on Mr. Kelly’s payroll.”

After all the back and forth, the youngin’ in question, Maxine Daniels, tried to clear things up even further. “I tried to keep it a secret,” she said of her love affair with the singer. “But when my stepmother found out about our relationship, she resigned because she felt that Rob had ‘crossed the line’ by dating a girl that he has known since she was 7 years old.”

Eek. The rest of her statement can be found here, and we are anxiously awaiting a comment from Regina Daniels, the woman who first shed light on this scandal with her resignation. Until then, tell us – who do you believe in this mess?

American Idol: Is Carly a Liar?

Last night we heard our top 12 female contestants take a stab at songs written before any of them were born. On American Idol ’60s night always leaves something to be desired; most contestants strip the fun and soul from the melodies of their chosen classics and deliver performances worthy only of the soundtrack to a Gap ad. But while confidence flaunted in Hollywood often fades in front of millions of viewers, several contestants held their own and delivered fantastic performances. Let’s take a look:

Jessica Does Have Fans – in the Ukraine

by

jessicasimpsonukraine.jpgCongrats are in order to Jessica Simpson! Her movie, Blonde Ambition, which was a total bomb in the US, is the number one movie in the Ukraine this week! The budget flick (which also stars Luke Wilson in the biggest career mistake of his life) opened only in texas theaters and grossed just $1,771 it’s debut weekend. But clearly we Americans don’t know a good film when we see one. Over in the Ukraine, the movie managed to rake in a whopping $253,008 last weekend. Now keep in mind Spider-Man 3 raked in $151,116,516 it’s opening weekend, but whose counting?! What could possibly explain the popularity of this admittedly crappy flick? An expert throws down some knowledge: “The former Soviet nations have a sweet tooth for straight-up comedies,” Conor Bresnan, editor in chief of Box Office Mojo International, reveals.”When these comedies have big name celebrities like Jessica Simpson’s, that’s all that’s needed to sell the movie. Russian and Ukrainian audiences have an even bigger urge for escapism than Americans.”

Jessica Simpson – and her papa – thank you, people of the Ukraine. Now she can afford that Louis Vuitton carrying case for her dog. [People]

New York magazine has released a few outtakes from LiLo’s now legendary photo-shoot, and you can do a little more staring here. Don’t worry, you’re not the only one looking – the pics garnered the website 40 million pages views on Monday (they normally average a million per day), and sales of the print version of the mag were up too.

Rock Gets Mocked

by

This week VH1′s own Rock of Love with Bret Michaels got the send-up treatment on Letterman. While the parody isn’t exactly spot-on (not one measly, “It kinda turns me on”?), it’s still pretty awesome. Not insanely awesome, mind you, but pretty awesome. Stick around for the Kid Rock cameo at the end. Check it:

Oscars Predictions: Who Will Win What?

by

nocountrybig.jpg

Each year the act of predicting which artists will take home a Oscar becomes one of pop culture’s greatest guessing games. Someone picks a category, and everyone becomes a pundit. That includes us. We want your comments, too. Do you think our choices are right? Watch the show on Sunday night, and check back Monday morning for a recap of all the memorable moments.

Best Picture

Atonement
British upstart James McAvoy and stick-thin Keira Knightley play a couple torn apart by World War II — and Knightley’s little sister, Saorise Ronan, whose despicable lies turn the lovers’ families against them. The book was excellent. The movie . . . eh, not so much.

Juno
Canadian cuteness Ellen Page is a knocked-up and very sarcastic teen who attempts to give her unborn child up for adoption to Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner. The script’s verbal pyrotechnics are impressive — as are Michael Cera’s bandied knees — but does it have the heat to beat out No Country For Old Men? In a word: no.

Michael Clayton
It’s George Clooney in the titular role as a fixer for a law firm. When one of the firm’s top lawyers has a mental breakdown in the middle of a deposition, Clooney’s called in to fix the mess, which has to do with a class-action suit against an agricultural manufacturing company. It’s complicated, but then again, good films sometimes are.

No Country For Old Men
When Josh Brolin stumbles across the remains of a drug deal gone bad, he pockets the cash and hightails it away from the scene. Unfortunately, both the law and a merciless, Terminator-like psychopath are hot on his trail. The killer, played by Javier Bardem, has a bad haircut and nasty temper. It’s a quiet, contemplative orgy of violence.

There Will Be Blood
Daniel Day-Lewis is oil prospector Daniel Plainview, whose business conflicts with the religious interests of Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), a preacher in a desolate California town. The lives of the two are inexorably intertwined after an accident at one of the wells. As time goes on, Daniel becomes a capitalist monster and Eli loses his faith. No film this decade has an uglier ending, although No Country For Old Men comes close.

Should win: It’s a toss-up between No Country For Old Men and There Will Be Blood. Both offer particularly bleak visions of America. In the former, the Coen brothers interpret Cormac McCarthy’s novel as an existential treatise on the meaninglessness of life; in the latter, Paul Thomas Anderson converts Upton Sinclair’s Oil! into a wrenching screed about the seductive evils of capitalism. (Yes, we just wrote “seductive evils.” So what?) That said, for pure brilliance and artistic achievement, No Country is the more successful film.

Will win: No Country For Old Men.

Deelishis Dishes on Replacing Flav & Ditching that Butt

by

deelishis1.jpg

Our girl Deelishis is back with a big-ass interview in this month’s Sister 2 Sister, and she’s got a lot to say. When she’s not describing her plans for world domination (radio work, her jean line, acting, breaking up with Busta Rhymes), Flav’s ex talks about everything from her daughter’s butt to her new, younger boyfriend, to shaking her image from FOL2: “I wanted to get past being the girl who had a butt so big you could have a picnic on it.” She’s even got some new pics to share, though they’re not quite as revealing as her spread in Smooth. Check ‘em out – along with some choice quotes – below, and look out – Deelishis means business.

On her 8-year old daughter’s big booty: “I say it’s a gift and a curse. And she has inherited it already.”

Describing her first date with her new boyfriend, “I said yes [to the date] and I was very intrigued by his company…he got his feet done when I got my feet done. He wasn’t self conscious.”

On Flavor Flav’s ability to land hot girls: “He’s a lot of fun. And he’s a man. A lot of people were like he’s so unattractive. There’s something that connects sometimes where you’ll see a beautiful woman and you’ll see her with a not so attractive man. He just has a way with that woman. And Flav had a way where I was attracted to him.”

Did she give Flav the boot? Answer: helllll no. “I didn’t dump Flav….That man stopped calling me, wouldn’t accept my calls, changed his number and totally avoided me.”
