Few hip-hop artists do the human beat-box thing as well as Biz Markie. So consider it a boon for edutainment that the crazed old school MC was one of the artists who helped kick-off the new preschoolers show Yo Gabba Gabba! The Nick Jr. program has a decidedly hip slant. The Shins, Elijah Wood, Tony Hawk, Sean Kingston, and Rahzel all crop up on the first few episodes. Have a look at the Biz in action below, and take some time out of your day to enjoy his “Just a Friend” video over here.

It’s too bad Foxy isn’t promoting anything right now, cuz she’s got enough juicy bad press going at the moment to sell millions of albums. The rapper was arrested yesterday in New Jersey for giving false information to police after she was pulled over for failing to yield at a stop sign while driving her SUV. When she finally gave her correct info it was revealed that she was driving on a suspended license. She was taken into custody by the cops, given seven(!) traffic tickets and released with a court date in place.
Foxy was recently overheard telling someone that she is pregnant and getting married in September. Her future hubby should start chauffeuring her around or that baby better learn to drive real fast. Foxy needs a driver – and, apparently, a lawyer. [Image: Getty]

Maybe it’s just his attraction spells working on us, but after Episode 3 we’ve crowned the adorably droopy Joe D. our Pick Up Artist of the Week. The chubby shy guy wowed the four-year olds in the Reward Challenge with his passionate storytelling and was robbed of the win by the pandering, manipulative Pradeep. He also impressed us with his attractions skills at the bar, using tattoo talk to work the ladies. Joe W. may have won the challenge, but Joe D. won our hearts. He can demonstrate his high value on us any day.Find out what happened with the rest of the lovable nerd herd after the jump!
Pretty, pretty Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger stopped by MTV studios to tape TRL on Wednesday and she had a series of facial expressions in tow. Unfortunately none of them were smiles. Seriously: check out the gallery below for today’s dose of misery. The closest she comes is floppy-mouthed toothy thing, but I’m pretty sure she’s just scratching her bottom lip with her top teeth. Sad. She’s totally crying on the inside. Now she knows how we felt when Asia won.

- Is Paris Hilton sporting a paunch? She’s probably just jealous of Nicole Richie‘s baby bump. Copycat! [CityRag]
- Star Jones gets photographed looking…not bad. Of course, Star Jones’ “not bad” is anyone else’s “does not burn out your corneas upon a single glance,” so that’s probably not saying very much. [Dlisted]
- Sporty Spice reportedly bans her reunited group-mates from drinking on their upcoming tour. Good luck getting through that one, you masochist. [Seriously? OMG! WTF?]
- Beyoncé‘s mother, Tina Knowles, unveils a clothing line described as “a taste of couture.” Couture, shredded lamé, hookers, burps…it all tastes the same, really. [CONCRETELOOP]
- Bobby Brown wears a T-shirt to a Miami club that reads: “I May Not Be Mr. Right, But I’ll F*** You ‘Til He Shows Up.” A more succinct picture of the last 15 years of Whitney Houston‘s life would be impossible to find. [Sandra Rose]

The Kanye West and 50 Cent album-release rivalry has taken a twangy turn: country music’s Kenny Chesney is also set to release an album on Sept. 11. Arrggh! No really: arrggh — the name of Kenny’s disc is Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates. Anyway, Kenny’s following the suit of his release-date counterparts by talking some smack. It’s in his genteel manner, but still: smack. Says Kenny:
“It’s funny how with every record that comes out, we’re aware of the urban [competition], and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist. Until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200.“
Awww. Poor maligned and forgotten country-music superstar. So this is why every cowboy sings his sad, sad song! Anyway, another crap-talker in the pot is another crap-talker I’m not rooting for. Ani DiFranco for the win! [Entertainment Weekly / Images: Getty]
