It’s Tuesday, meaning Kanye West must have run his mouth again. This time, though, Ye’s pissed off on the Pantyless One’s behalf, too. Speaking on New York radio station Z100, West — whose album Graduation drops today — criticized MTV’s treatment of artists, critiquing Britney‘s much maligned comeback performance from Sunday evening: “When Britney was opening [the VMA telecast], near the end, I felt so bad for her. I said, ‘Man, it’s a dirty game. This game will chew you up and spit you out.’” No word on whether the network was plying the pop tart with margaritas and enforcing a no underwear policy. Kanye then went on to discuss how MTV betrayed him, encouraging him to perform in a suite when he should have been on the main stage of the 2007 VMAs. “It was my dream when I made ‘Stronger’ to open up the VMAs with a real power performance,” West said, bemoaning his performance, which is demonstrative of a larger issue: don’t write songs with dreams of award shows dancing in your head. It will only end in tragedy.

Kanye vs. Kevlar King: Fiddy Got a Future?
Oops! Maybe Courtney Love didn’t know Jack Osbourne was only fifteen years old when she gave him OxyContin for the first time. Still that excuse ain’t gonna fly with his mama Sharon, who fumed:
“I will never have time for Courtney Love. She was the first person to give my son Jack the prescription drug OxyContin. There’s not a shadow of doubt in my mind about that. My dislike towards her is very personal. I’m not saying Jack wouldn’t have taken it if she hadn’t given it to him, but I’m appalled that an adult mother would give that to a 15-year-old boy. How could she do that to someone else’s child? I haven’t had a row with her, but I will never talk to her.”
Ouch. Well kiddies, now you know where to go to get the goods – just look for the crazy lady dressed like a psychedelic clown. Check out the pics below for more of Courtney’s cracked out style from last night’s Marc Jacobs fashion show in NYC [DListed. Images: Getty]

Hold your applause: Despite clever editing meant to heighten suspense and to lead you to believe that they were going to crash and burn, Sureshot‘s performance at Mansion was an unmitigated success. (Sidebar: Mansion is a Miami club that was the site of a mini Britney Spears meltdown in May — not that a Britney meltdown is that rare an animal.) The men, our putative band of brothers, came together for a rousing show, and they looked good. As Bryan said, they were taking their style cues from the Rat Pack. The audience dug it. Groovy.

Biography: Simon Cowell, 9 a.m. (EST), The Biography Channel: Just because British people can say things like “pish-posh” without being clowny doesn’t mean they’ve got critical opinions sharper than Ginsu knives and standards higher than the CNN Tower.

He may have once lived in his parents’ basement, had only virtual friends and had his last sober kiss between the ages of 13 and 15, but things are looking up for Joe. By demonstrating himself to be an excellent listener and snagging the reward challenge, Joe was completely at home in sets, even if he didn’t manage to get any real action. Plus, the man knows sexy boy shorts when he sees them, which is reason enough to name him our Pick Up Artist of the Week. Read more…
