Was Sam’s elimination from Rock of Love the reality show equivalent of a mercy killing? Maybe! After the jump, Sam talks about biting off more than she could chew, her connection with Bret, how PMS changed everything and the Orwellian constraints of reality TV. For real!
Tay Zonday, everyone’s favorite deep-voiced internet star, has “released” his follow up jam to the summer’s biggest song, “Chocolate Rain.” “Do the Can’t Dance” is not quite as bizarre (and therefore – catchy) as his first masterpiece, but at least we get to watch him shake his booty as he mimes eating salsa. In the world of internet video, that’s pure genius.
What do you think – Does “Do the Can’t Dance” beat out “Chocolate Rain” as the most annoyingly addictive web song of the year?

A video for a 2006 video from none other than Rock of Love villain Lacey has surfaced, and boy is it awesome. The synth-pop throwback “This Thing Called Love” finds Lacey vamping around, rolling around in bed, throwing rose petals at a dude and changing the word “LOVE” (written in lipstick on a mirror, of course) to the word “DONE” while proclaiming all along, “I don’t want this thing called love.” Here comes the rain, again and again. As you’re well aware, Lacey would go on to appear on a reality show purportedly in search for that very thing. It’s nice to know that she eventually came around. [Via ohnotheydidnt]
MTV has confirmed that Britney – extensions and all – will be opening the 2007 Video Music Awards this Sunday. Brit will bust a move to her new single “Gimme More,” also know as the mediocre dance song that starts with the lines “It’s Britney, bitch.” The executive producer of the show says that Brit has indeed consulted with Criss Angel on her performance, and he is promising a spectacle unlike anything we’ve ever seen. “You can expect the things we want and expect from Britney — that will all be there,” said Jesse Ignjatovic. “…She’ll be dancing, performing, doing her thing. That’s exactly what we all want. Fans that are familiar with her performance on previous VMAs will not be disappointed.”
By “doing her thing,” he hopefully means a choreographed head shaving routine. Or maybe she’ll chain smoke an entire pack of Marlboro Lights. Either way, we’ll be glued to our TVs on Sunday night. Good luck, bitch! [MTV.com. Images: Getty]
Check out these pics of Brit’s past VMA show stoppers. Do you think she’s gonna bomb or blow up big on Sunday night?

Whoops! Apparently Lindsay Lohan wasn’t that rich, because girlfriend’s gone out and blown all her money and is now not allowed to spend a dime. A source says, “Dina must think Lohan is a serious addict, and she’s afraid if she gives her even $20, she’ll run out and buy drugs and booze.”
I guess Dina is smart, cuz that’s definitely where Lindsay’ll go – right to the corner. Linds is supposedly so desperate for cash that she went begging to Damon Dash and 50 Cent for some money. Lindsay and 50 Cent are pals? We had no idea. That’s weirder than him and Kanye getting along. Luckily both hip hop moguls are smart enough not to fork anything over, so some “music industry insider” passed her some cash. Lindsay’s thank you? “I’m good for it, I’ll make a huge comeback. I am, after all, the most famous person on the planet right now!” Nice. Her mom taught her class as well as money management skills. Unless Lindsay has another Mean Girls up her sleeve, that poor “insider” is totally getting screwed. It’s probably Paula Abdul - them drugged up crazy ladies gotta stick together, right?

Interesting how this video popped up just when we added “Drew Barrymore making out with the guy from those annoying Apple commercials” to our List of Things We Never Want to See – Ever. Guess we can cross that one off. Let’s hope the same never happens for “Britney Spears naked.” Apparently Drew and Justin Long are canoodling all over Hollywood, as is evident from their hot and heavy lip lock caught on tape. But with the way our girl is playing the field these days, that means nothing. She could be all over John Mayer in NYC or grinding with Diddy on his yacht in St. Tropez. You just never know.

Jonesing for music on your television set? You’ve come to the right place, rockers! Check out our shortlist below. For more extensive listings, read VH1’s Rock on TV schedule daily.
Rent, 7:20 a.m. (EST), SBLK: Not content to deal with the perils of New York City real estate alone, this Broadway-to-big screen adaptation manages to trivialize difficult issues like AIDS and relationships by setting them to music. Loosely based on La Boheme, and barely redeemed by the presence of a scantily clad Rosario Dawson.
The Last Waltz, 11:00 a.m. (EST), SHON: It’s Thanksgiving of 1976, and the Band is playing its final show. Director Martin Scorcese‘s there to document the show in its entirety, as well as film the fallout of the retirement. In a graceful full-circle gesture, the guys return to the stage where they played their innaugural show 16 years earlier at San Francisco’s Winterland Arena. During the course of the concert, former Band leaders join them on stage (Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins), as well as a who’s who of classic rock titans — Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Keith Richards and Van Morrison. Regarded as one of the best rock n’ roll concert films.
