Lindsay’s Feud with Paris Heats Up



It’s like the democratic primary in Hollywood, but drunk on fancy vodka! Lindsay and Paris’s beef with each other escalated recently, after LiLo stepped into take over hosting duties from BritBrit at an event at the Scandinavian Style Mansion (we’re still not really clear on what this place is). Linds was all chill until she realized that the goods she was hawking at the party included handbags made by her frenemy Paris Hilton. Uh oh! She got pissed and bolted, and guess who stepped in to take over the twice-abandoned hosting gig? None other than Ms. Paris herself. The dude who organized the event had this to say about the feuding females, “I’m grossly disappointed in Lindsay for not fulfilling her contractual duties. But Paris truly saved the night. She was very gracious to everyone – and was the life of the party.”

Last month the girls battled over Timbaland’s affections, this month’s it’s Sweden. Who knows what April will bring!

Flav 3‘s Rayna: It Wasn’t Me



Booted Flavor of Love 3 contestant Rayna has a few things to say about this week’s episode of the show, in which it was suggested that she was responsible for Myammee’s elimination. While she says that she was indeed the voice on the phone with Seezinz, Rayna denies that she had anything to do with setting up Myammee. She told us:

“Me and Myammee wasn’t beefin’. We spoke. We had a mutual relationship. We respected each other’s space. Anybody who’s been following me knows who I don’t get along with, and that’s the twins. They didn’t like me, I didn’t like them. That’s from episode 2. Period, point and blank. The whole thing about me saying, ‘I’m gunnin’ for the bitches in the house,’ yeah: the two bitches in the house that I don’t like. ‘Flav guard your grill,’ exactly, ’cause there’s two f***in’ females in the house that don’t have your best interest at heart. Actually, more than two.

“From my understanding, the man who called Myammee knew her first, middle and last name. No one in the house knew nobody’s first name. I still only know three of the girls’ first names. How could I possibly call and set somebody up and give that person’s first, middle and last name, where they’re from, where they stay? Prank callin’, that ain’t me. That’s some s*** I did in grade school, when you order $300 worth of pizzas to your best friend’s house. I don’t have time for the games.

“How did Rayna get pulled back into this? I been out the house for three weeks and I just pop back out the blue like, ‘Hey, I’m back y’all!’ Are they gonna have a silhouette of me walk through next, like some ghost-type stuff?”

Now there’s an idea! Stay tuned for hauntin’!

Idol Chit-Chat With Jordin Sparks



Last season on American Idol, Jordin Sparks became the youngest winner in the show’s history. The 17-year-old had originally been turned away when she auditioned in Los Angeles, but followed that up by winning Arizona Idol, a Fox affiliate-sponsored competition, which guaranteed her a place at the try-outs in Seattle. The lesson? Never let a little thing like defeat get you down. Sparks went on to win the competition without ever being in the bottom two or three, and released her self-titled debut last November. The record featured a variety of popular songs, including “This Is My Now” and “No Air,” on which she sings alongside nascent R&B heartthrob Chris Brown. We caught up with Sparks over e-mail to ask her about Chris Brown, this season’s Idol contestants and whether or not she had any tips for performing in front of the judges. Interview after the jump.

Audrina Looks Better Naked



Lauren Conrad‘s bland BFF on The Hills has finally revealed her wild side – and it’s a whole lot racier than just dating a hairdresser with two names! A bunch of naked pics of Audrina Patridge have surfaced on the web (what took so long?) from an apparent attempt at a modeling/Playboy career. The reality star confessed that she, “took these photos years ago when I was just out of high school and beginning to model. I was young and very trusting of others and I didn’t know to protect myself.” Here’s one very simple way – don’t take your clothes off! Though honestly, the whole internet is glad she did.

You can peep the pics here, or enjoy Audrina, fully clothed, below. [Getty]

American Idol: What Was Ramiele Thinking?



Beatlemania continued last night on American Idol, a questionable decision on the part of the producers, and one which gave us one of Idol’s most uneven nights yet. Even Simon conceded that the second week of Beatles tunes was “weird” and perhaps inadvisable. Be that as it may, the 11 remaining contestants tackled the Lennon/McCartney songbook with a heartfelt, if misapplied, vigor. Let’s take a look:

Tyler Perry: 5 Black Movies Ya Gotta See


Tyler Perry is big old star at this point. As the straight-talking, cig-smoking, pistol-packing matriarch Madea he’s made millions on the gospel theatre circuit and successfully crossed over into movies with Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Last year he followed it with Why Did I Get Married? And this Friday he’s dropping Meet the Browns. Perry is a big film buff of course. A while ago we spoke with him about five key African American movies that everyone should have in their library. Here are his choices. (Check our recent list of great African American actors, too.)

The Wiz (1978)

The first movie I ever saw was The Wiz. Gosh, I couldn’t have been more than six or seven when this thing came out. I was living in New Orleans and saw it at the Gallo Theater. I remember dancing up and down the aisles, man. That was just amazing to me. I was bowled over by the colors in it, the sets, the actors … Michael Jackson was my favorite. I loved the song “Ease On Down the Road.” The Wiz inspired me to write musicals, like my first success I Know That I’ve Been Changed. It’s too bad that you don’t see many musicals now, but I’m still a fan.
