Hip Hop Honors: What You Won’t See On Tonight’s Broadcast

by

Snoop Dogg at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors 2007After getting to spend a little quality time with Ice-T behind-the-scenes at Hip Hop Honors, there were a few other highlights from the evening that won’t be broadcast on tonight’s show.

* “You Already Knew It, But Didn’t Want to Know It”: Ice-T and Coco have mirrors over their bed.

* Requisite Britney Spears Reference: Salt N’ Pepa made mention of the pop-wreck and the perils of fame when they visited the press room.

* Best advice for up-and-coming artists looking for guidance from their elders: “Not f*cking up $400,000.” — WHODINI

* Mos Def will star as Grandmaster Busy Bee in a biopic of the MC’s life.

* Andre Harrell wants to make the story of New Jack Swing into a Broadway musical.

In addition to the upcoming projects and cautionary tales, some felt moved to comment on the state of hip-hop:

“Hip-hop’s getting raggedy. It’s not quality music anymore.” — Snoop

“I feel like a lot of criticism has been made about hip-hop over the past year. Some of it was quite public, over the past few weeks, in terms of mock battles between artists and their record sales. A lot of people are questioning the substance, and speaking as one of the members of A Tribe Called Quest, I’m happy that part of our legacy was that we were about positivity, music and being substantive and including all people.” — Q-Tip

The couple – who count Kid Rock, Tommy Lee and Shannen Doherty amongst their former spouses – got married in Vegas on Saturday night. The ceremony took place in between Pam’s two shows with magician Hans Klok, followed by a late-night reception. We wish them the best for their couple of months lifetime together! They’ll need it.

Diddy Wants to be a Daddy – Again

by

diddy1008.jpgDiddy should maybe consider going back to the name Puff Daddy, seeing as he’s got more babies than he does bling these days. The hip hop mogul just officially added another kid to his brood, 15-month old Chance. Diddy fathered the little girl with Atlanta-based hottie Sarah Chapman, and the baby was born while his live-in girlfriend Kim Porter was pregnant with their twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James. DNA tests have confirmed that Chance is indeed a Combs kid, and Diddy has now said, “At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child. Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.”

Isn’t Chance lucky? She probably already has a fridge of Cristal chilling in preparation for her 21st birthday. Her crib is now encrusted with diamonds. The next Making the Band boys will have to walk to Atlanta just to bring her cheesecake from Brooklyn. Maybe Diddy has room for another kid to add to his pack? Sure I’m not related by blood or anything, but I’m really well behaved, look adorable in Sean John clothing and appreciate the value of a (thousand) dollar(s). Think about it Diddy! I mean – Daddy.

The FBI Wants to See Kim Nekkid

by

Bootylicious!
The NY Daily News is reporting that the FBI “pounced” on photo agent Eric Ford in an attempt to nab the “child porn” pics of an underage Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney. The feds grabbed his computer and some photos, but did not arrest the guy – yet. Ford was pitching the photos as Kim and her sis sexing up the same man, but it seems that the pics are actually of the girls separate and naked and Kourtney engaging in sexual positions with a man. Regardless of what’s pictured, we know why the FBI is hot on this case – they want to see some hot Kardashian action too! F**k searching for terrorists – the weapons of mass destruction are right there in the back of Kim’s pants.

Check out the latest Kim pics below – she’s not naked, but her bikini dress is good enough! [Images: Getty]

Vintage New York

by

New York’s character progression from Flavor of Love to I Love New York 2 has been something like: villain to anti-hero to hero to disgraced hero. It’s actually kind of nuanced, which is insane for reality TV. But in the beginning, there was one fight in one van featuring New York versus the Flavor of Love girls (especially Rain and Pumkin). Relive the magic of the first time New York let us know that she was the H.B.I.C. with this vintage clip below:

And, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite for tonight’s premiere of I Love New York 2 (at 9/8c), try your hand at I Love New York: Rumble for Romance, an online, Punch-Out-inspired game in which you box to win New York’s affection. You know she loves a violent man.

Annnnd, there’s even more: check this space tonight during the premiere for our special live blog, during which we’ll elicit audience participation. Make like a VH1 promo and watch and discuss.

Brit Runs for the Border After Intervention

by

What did the Spears Clan have in store for this wonderful weekend?

  • Thursday morning: Britney blows of her kid’s visit because she didn’t want a parenting coach present. Mothering at its best!
  • Friday night: Mom Spears and Sister Spears arrive in LA to visit Crazy Spears
  • 3 AM Saturday morning: The Spears women reunite and cry, hug, eat – repeat.
  • Saturday afternoon: Mama, Sister and Fed-Ex gather at Brit’s house for an apparent intervention. Brit runs out at around 7PM and drives around LA all night like a lunatic
  • Saturday night: Brit and her Sis head out to Taco Bell for girl talk and farts. Intervention forgotten!?
  • Sunday afternoon: Britney and Jamie-Lynn get in a fight with a crazy woman and it’s all caught on tape! Check it out above. The price these poor celebs pay for their Starbucks addictions.
  • Sunday night: Mama Spears cooks the whole gang a dinner! Did that intervention even ever happen? Maybe it was just about her outfits. No more t-shirts as dresses!

Touch My Backstage Pass: Behind the Scenes at the Rock of Love Reunion

by

Hey! I’ll show you things you’ve never seen…but could probably predict. Below is my on-set, behind-the-scenes and backstage account of the taping of the Rock of Love reunion. Over the course of the night I’d be called a “jackass” by one of the girls to my face (dying to know what they had to say about me behind my back!), I’d get to hang out with Bret and I’d achieve my elusive goal of interviewing Tiffany. See kids? Dreams do come true!

To whet your appetite, here’s a picture of Bret with an anecdote:

Bret art-directed this shot. He he’s the one who suggested he be shot next to the picture of the girl. Once a ladies’ man, always a ladies’ man.

The Wit and Wisdom of Ice-T

by

Ice_TWe were lucky enough to get a little time with the West Coast’s Ambassador of Gangsta, Ice-T, when Hip Hop Honors taped last week. As he held court in the the press room (ignoring the moderator’s time limits) we realized Ice-T might be one of the savviest players in the game. Check out some of what he had to say, and be sure to tune in tonight at 10 p.m. to see Ice-T pay tribute to Snoop.

“I ended up on Law and Order. They asked me to do four shows, and now I’m on my ninth year. I’ll be on that show til they throw my black ass off. It’s a good look.”

“Imagine that — Ice-T playing the police.”

“I judge men by their women. If I see you and she all out of pocket, that’s a reflection on you. I’m going to see if she’s looking good. If you got on all the jewels and her shoes is bad, then I’m going to be like, ‘Player, you ain’t handling your business correctly.’”

“I never fronted on my albums. When I put a girl in the video, that was my girl. I never had a model in a picture with me, in life. I never posed with a car that wasn’t mine.”

“When I did the new album Gangsta Rap, with me and Coco lying in bed on the album butt-naked, I was kind of like laying there one morning looking at myself like ‘Damn, this sh*t’s kind of fly right now.’ I ain’t posing — this is the truth.”

“Most of my moves you won’t understand for two or three years.”

Naked People in Miami

by

tunick.jpgToday in Miami, many people will be removing their clothes for the camera. Photographer Spencer Tunick, who has made it his life’s work to fly to exotic locales and capture stills of people in their birthday suits, will be shooting at South Beach’s renowned and clubby Sagamore Hotel. (The image to the left is from a shoot Tunick did in Melbourne.) In Florida, meanwhile, approximately 600 people will be putting it all out there for him. The artist told NBC: “I’m going to have 100 to 200 women in pink rafts. We’re going to have people on the balcony posing very much like the Tower of Babel meets Logan’s Run. We’re going to buy some champagne, 500 bottles, and were going to make a giant explosion for the climax of the installation from the balcony.” The photo will be on display at the Art Basel art fair in Miami this December. Question: Would you disrobe for the camera? Another question: Who doesn’t disrobe in Miami?
