Kim K. Experiments with Gold Duct Tape



Ahhhh, Kim Kardashian. The shopgirl-turned-trashy TV star is always fashion forward and an explorer of the avant garde (ie, the skimpiest dresses possible). And so we’d like to take a second to honor her recent red carpet outfit pick – this “dress,” which essentially looks like an exploration of the many uses of gold duct tape. Kim rocked the frock last week with boyfriend Reggie Bush on her arm, and we applaud her fearless attempt at fashion. A dress that shows of every inch of her body is daring, yes. But to do so in an outfit that looks like it was taped together and stuck to her skin? Now that is a true fashion risk. [Getty]

Diddy’s Makin’ the Baby Band



Diddy got down with a slew of his prodigies at Saturday night’s Making the Band season finale. New bad boys Day 26 were present, obvs, as was Danity Kane, his golden girl group. But the ladies who stole the show are barely able to walk on their own, much less sing. The hip hop mogul flashed his twin daughters D’Lila Star and Jessie James at the taping, and if he hasn’t yet prepped his babies for a career in showbiz, he should. Singing twins would send Jess and Ash and Beyonce and Solange running for the Hollywood Hills.

More pics of the night are below for your viewing pleasure. And if your ears need a little love, you listen to Danity Kane‘s recent hit album on Rhapsody, and can preview the entire Day 26 album – set to drop tomorrow – right here.

George Michael: Tour Dates Today, CD Tomorrow


george-michael-150x.jpgBack in the day, arenas full of die-hard fans knew that George Michael was one of the most kinetic performers in pop. So of course they were bummed when he stopped touring for 15 years. Last fall he ended that hiatus by romping around European stages, bringing the hits and the new stuff to life. Now he’s headed to the U.S. After the jump you’ll find a list of the cities that he’ll visit.

And if you want to find out what that “new stuff” sounds like, be back at tomorrow. The Leak is streaming his TwentyFive disc in its entirety for a week. While it’s heavy on the classic tracks, it’s also got six new titles: “An Easier Affair,” “This Is Not Real Love,” “Heal The Pain” (duet with Sir Paul McCartney), “Understand,” and “As” (featuring Mary J. Blige), which was previously unreleased in America. Might be a smart move to put “Freedom” on your fone to prepare for all this GM action. Are you psyched to see Mr. Michael rolling again?

Chris Brown Boogies for the Brits



When Chris Brown isn’t hanging out at the top of the charts thanks to “Miss You” and his Jordin Sparks duet “No Air,” he’s showing off his super-agile performer moves on stage somewhere. Over the weekend it was London and the IndigO2 arena. Check out the photos of what was surely an entertaining evening. And don’t forget that Rhapsody has a couple sweet remixes of “With You” that give Brown’s valentine a completely different personality.

Ash & Jess’ Dad Wants A Date?


joe_simpsonAfter reportedly setting up some of his daughters’ past dalliances, it looks like Joe Simpson is looking to find love himself. Which wouldn’t be an issue, if he weren’t already married. Apparently, at Perez Hilton‘s party last week, Joe was seen hanging out with some pals (including Ashlee’s ex Ryan Cabrera) without his wedding ring on, approaching several ladies. “He was flirting with one group of girls who either didn’t know who he was or didn’t care, and they just grabbed their drinks, laughed and walked away,” a source told Page Six.

Given Joe’s recent dip back into the dating pool, we thought we’d help him out with a little online profile. We’ve compiled some info for a listing on (which has yet to be created) that we think might come in handy.

Sign: Aquarius
Height: 6’2″
Hair: Clairol blonde
Piercings: right ear
Interests: Daughters (yours or mine), Jesus, tanning
Favorite bands: Fall Out Boy, Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Simpson
Favorite sports team: Dallas Cowboys
Dislikes: Nick Lachey, producing films that go straight to video
Who I’m Looking For: Someone who likes to tan, who enjoys meddling in their children’s lives and making inappropriate comments

Tyra Banks: Stalked and Scared



Dear Brady Green, age 27 of Dublin, Georgia,

Leave Tyra Banks alone. Seriously. Don’t come to New York City again trying to make contact with her, and definitely do not lurk at her studio with a duffel bag full of magazine clippings about the supermodel and notes about your previous stalking attempts. Just because you’re reportedly big and muscly, doesn’t mean you scare us – or Tyra! The police may have let you go this time, but if you come back to mess with our Top Model, you better believe we’ll be calling the cops – or taking you down with a citizen’s arrest! Stalking ain’t cool, Mr. Green, and just because Tyra’s studio supposedly has no security doesn’t mean we won’t be guarding our beloved chatterbox with all our might. Not that TB needs our help – when life deals her something scary, she just turns it into a photoshoot on America’s Next Top Model. Now THAT is fierce (unlike you).
