If you don’t believe Rihanna‘s hype even after seeing last Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, then we don’t know how to help you. The 19-year-old "Umbrella" singer showed up Jay-Z with a choreographed routine where she was clad in fetish gear — basically what appeared to be a succession of belts. Fun.
Her third album, Good Girl Gone Bad, showcases more club-bangers and sensitive R&B balladry, but it’s her live performances we’re impressed by.
To see why you want to be under this girl’s umbrella-ella-ella any day-ay-ay, click the pics:
She’s only been behind bars for a few days, but already Paris has had to face the taunts of fellow inmates, the confusing feat of making collect calls, and rampant Staph infections. With so much drama going down, how is our peroxide princess going to last another 21 days!?
You’d think one of her "people" would have introduced her to the ways of pay phones prior to her little vacation behind bars. No wonder she’s crying, she probably thinks it’s a giant Blackberry and wants to know why she doesn’t own it yet.
- Flavor of Love 2‘s Deelishis resurfaces, and this time, she’s singing…about her butt. Combining ass with assets is like killing two birds with one cheek. [Vibe Confidential]
- And speaking of ass, Britney‘s got nothing to sing about. [Egotastic!]
- Remember when Paris Hilton going to jail was just a candy-colored figment of David LaChapelle’s imagination? Our society has progressed so much since then! [CityRag]
- Rihanna says she’ll never provide the tabloid fodder of Paris and Lindsay. "I’m just not the type to get sucked into bulls***." Sounds like someone isn’t interested in being a superstar! [Cake & Ice Cream]
- America’s Spelling Bee champion, Evan O’Dorney gives majorly bizarre attitude during a CNN interview. Reality TV, meet your future. [Best Week Ever]
This week’s batch of Charm School scenes that didn’t make the episode feature the girls’ favorite pastime: trash talking. The first is an extended cut of Larissa’s exit. She calls Mo’Nique out for not being classy ("I seen a picture of her on the red carpet with hairy legs. That’s not classy.") and has some choice words for Dean Keith, too ("Pee Wee Herman walkin’ around with his little d*** self"). After some heart-string tugging ("I worked my ass off to get where I am in this competition, and I feel like Mo’Nique’s not giving me credit for that"), she really lets it rip with a special birthday greeting for Mo. Larissa promised she’d go out with a bang and bang she did.
The second features Saaphyri reading New York like only Saaphyri can. She talks more smack about New York’s plastic surgery and general appearance ("Half RuPaul, half Beyoncé!"). More impressively than her insults is her insight — she deems New York "a cartoon character that’s alive." Even better is Saaphyri’s explanation why New York does not get to her: "She hit me with all kinds of stuff…but since she’s such a character, it’s like, no problem. I got this." If all of the other girls adopted this attitude, there would have been a lot less trouble on both seasons of Flavor of Love. In the Flavor universe, Saaphyri’s attitude is akin to possessing the secret of joy.
Angelina Jolie spills her guts in the newest issue of Parade Magazine, and what she reveals is great for her and totally depressing for the rest of us "normal folk."
The mother of four claims that in her twenties, her life as an actress was "not really benefitting anyone." Enter in three children from around the globe and one from the most beautiful man alive, and now things are peachy keen. Life is so grand, that the pair are already making plans on how best to enjoy it. Once they finish a few more projects, the two are "going to try to take a year off and just be with the kids."
The last time we watched video of Akon he was getting all grind-y onstage with a 15 year-old girl. In these new clips circulating the web, he is seen performing at the KFEST 2007 concert when a young boy in the audience throws something at the Senegalese superstar. Our hip hop hero then does what anyone would do in that situation. He instructs his bodyguards to bring the boy up onstage, takes off his shirt, hoists the kid over his shoulder, and hurls him into the crowd, to the sound of hyperventilating fans screaming, "We love you!"
Akon, we’ve learned our lesson. Your stage is like a 20-foot chunk of the Wild West and you’re Jesse James. There are no rules, and no one is safe. One wrong move and you’ll be using your super human strength to bust out nasty dances or chuck someone across the country. So we’ll just stay away and dance awkwardly in the back corner. Oh, and keep your shirt on. Please?
While yesterday’s photos of Lindsay Lohan playing with knives caused a bit of a stir, it seemed nothing out of the ordinary for the dutchess of dysfunction. Knowing Linds, she probably takes bizarre knife pictures a few times a day. Yet the identity of her sexy partner in crime was revealed today as none other than wholesome ex-TRL host Vanessa Minnillo, making the pics way more interesting (and maybe a little hot). More on the ladies’ knife tricks, after the jump!
From helping to invent heavy metal to romping around his reality show, our Rock Honors hero has lived a wild-assed life. Got 60 seconds to get a crazed little synopsis of the Blizzard’s tale? Sure you do.
T-Pain‘s music paints him as something of a player, as he falls in love with strippers and partakes in one-night stands (after buying a girl only one drink!). His home life is actually much different — he’s been married for two years. When asked about how his wife feels about his musical persona, the man sometimes known as Teddy Penderazdoun said this:
"My wife doesn’t mind. All the money goes back to her. And that, she don’t mind at all."
Nice that she can be bought so easily. Love don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that bling. In addition to the divide between his music and his home life, T-Pain also sees a divide between his music and image — he may sound smooth on record, but in reality, he’s chunky. "I’m not trying to be Mr. Six-Pack," he says. And as this recent shot (source) proves…
