Brit Chugged Booze Instead of Rehearsing

by

britneyspears_vmas.jpgNow we know why Brit was stumbling around during her Sunday night VMAs performance – her body wasn’t used to doing the dance steps without a liter of frozen margaritas inside of it. Word is out that Brit was uber-late to her rehearsals in Vegas, and skipped being on time in favor of downing the frozen drink in her hotel room. When she finally made it to her rehearsal over three hours late, she came with an alcoholic bevy in hand. A source said, “She didn’t even get to Las Vegas until 4:30 p.m. It was ridiculous . . . The production people at MTV were freaking out . . . Nobody can tell Britney what to do anymore. No one can control her. She is a mess.”

For more Britastic disasters, tune into VH1 tonight for All Access: Britney’s Most Shocking Year Ever. This new special will take you through the pop tart’s transformation from hot single mama to the bald and boozey flasher she has become in less than twelve months. If you’ve been longing to see Brit attack the paps with her umbrella or ruin her mane with some shaving shears, VH1 has got you covered – tonight at 8:30 PM!

Boys to Men — Mission: Man Band Episodes 6 & 7 Recap

by

Mission: Man Band
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.

Rock on TV – The Shortlist

by

Perez HiltonJonesing for music on your television set? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Check out our shortlist below. For more extensive listings, read VH1’s Rock on TV schedule daily.

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. But Simon Cowell isn’t most British people. If you’re the masochistic type of pop-culture junkie, this documentary about the king of the *ssholes ought to be right up your alley. And that it’s on at 9 a.m. is doubly exciting! You can be super irritated before breakfast!

What Perez Says About the VMAs, 9 p.m. (EST), VH1: The Internet’s Gossip Gangster comes to our fair network tonight, bringing his green-haired commentary to the state of music’s latest award-winners. This is the first of a series of specials starring Hilton, in which he’ll attack . . . er, bring his insider knowledge and expertise to bear on a variety of subjects that are all celebrity related. The self-proclaimed Queen of All Media is the snarky sort. What Perez Says . . . will include lots of interviews, which proves that celebs are tougher than people give them credit for. Can’t wait to hear him talk about that Britney Spears performance. Our ears are burning already.

The Pick Up Artist Recap: Episode 6

by

Go Joe!

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…

Below, catch an exclusive preview of the VH1′s upcoming Celebreality series, The Salt-N-Pepa Show. All the mystery that surrounded Salt-N-Pepa‘s break-up will be answered in the show, which finds the pair reuniting and attempting to mend their severed friendship. Here’s a blurb from the official press release on the obstacles they face:

Salt is angry about being unappreciated when they were together and Pepa blames Salt for breaking up the group.

Can they overcome their differences long enough to heal their friendship and perform again?

VMAs WTF: Paris Channels Your Grandma

by

parisvmas2.jpgI have a feeling this VMAs hairdo has moved to the top of Paris Hilton‘s ‘Regret List,’ edging out ‘driving drunk’ and ‘all of my sex tapes’ for first place. Somewhere in a nursing home in Ohio, a frail, little grandmother is attempting to dial up Paris. She wants her hair back – and her cheap curlers. Check out more pics of the heiress’ major fashion f*ck up below.

Tour Survival Guide: Cold War Kids

by

Cold_War_Kids

Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers about life on the road. We got theCold War Kids before they embarked on their tour opening for the White Stripes to find out about bootlegs, lucky maids and Wal-Mart parking lots.

Accidentally Tipping Maids Around the World
Nathan Willett: We had Jameson for three tours in a row. And that was no longer any fun. Now we just have water and beer. [Drinking Jameson] just gets gross.

Matt Maust: After a while we had six or seven bottles that hadn’t been drank. We left them in our hotel room once somewhere and the maid got them all. It was in London.

Post-Show Perambulations
Matt Aveiro:
I usually take a pretty fast walk after the show. Ten minutes away from everyone. I don’t think it’s really conscious. I just get off stage and I walk away from everyone, and I have my ten minutes away.

Orlando, Bootleg Capital of the World
MM:
I got a bootleg copy of The Wonder Years in Orlando, where all bootlegs come from. It’s the scam capital of the world. My mom told me that. My mom or my dad. You know [that movie] Matchstick Men? Orlando.

Hiltons, Ramadas, and Wal-Mart Parking Lots
MM:
We used to not book hotels in advance, so we’d have to stay in the van in a Wal-Mart parking lot. There’s security, and it’s legal to stay there. We stayed there once, and I woke up to a cop and asking us if the pizza box and empty bottles were ours. I told him it was our recyclables.
