Well this is…weird. High School Musical‘s angel-eyed star Zac Efron is supposedly working with Lil Wayne on a remixed song for the new High School Musical 2: Non-Stop Dance Party album, and the unlikely duo are like totally, platonically in love! Weezy’s reason for the pairing? He says, “I’m trying to reach those suburban white kids like Kanye did.”
So he’s now boys with the token suburban white kid Zac, who originally met Lil Wayne in the bathroom of a comic book convention after party. Seriously. Wayne describes their introduction: “To get away from these girls that was chasing him, he ducked into the bathroom and I followed him in there. I was like, ‘What’s crackin’, my brother from another mother?’” So now they’re making music together at Wayne’s home, and on the day one reporter caught the two working, Efron allegedly greeted Weezy with a “What’s up, my nigga?” and a kiss on the lips. Yes, SERIOUSLY. After playing a few songs, Wanye was asked if he ever feels overwhelmed by all his projects, to which he replied, “Hell, no! This is how I live! I get up in the morning, get my dick sucked four times, drink a Molson’s, and then hang out with Zac.”

Well, how do you like that?
(Like I even need to ask!)
Were you stoked for Sunday’s episode of The Shot? In the last installment, the contestants were surprised with a celebrity photo shoot on an arid desert runway. The celebrity? Joss Stone. The photographs? Complicated, pensive and cluttered. Will they ever learn? And therein lies the core of the show, which pits 10 up-and-coming fashion photographers against each other for the chance to win $100,000, a spread in Marie Claire, and a Victoria’s Secret campaign — all the while being judged by a he-Tyra with an Australian accent, Russell James. Catch up on what you missed. Check the recap below.
As 2007 dwindles down, we’re taking a look back at our favorite tracks. Each Tuesday through the end of the month, we’ll sing the praises of the 20 songs that made our year. See what made the cut, and let us know what you think of our choices. Check out the last two posts to see what else is on our list.
Avril Lavigne, “Girlfriend,” from The Best Damn Thing (RCA)
Take the infectious cheer-squad shout of Toni Basil‘s “Mickey,” add some glean from chart-topping uber-producer Dr. Luke, and write lyrics directed at the most tech-savvy market in the country (14-year-old girls) and you’ll understand why Avril Lavigne‘s “Girlfriend” was her highest ranking single to date. Avril’s fans forgave her her newly wedded status and bought her barbed entreaties to an already attached guy to ditch his girlfriend (never has “She’s like, so whatever,” sounded like such a compelling argument). During the verse she rarely deviates into tune, sticking with her bratty schoolyard chants and marrying mall punk guitars with positively jubilant pop. All handclaps and sass, the video has Avril pulling triple-duty, playing her blonde self, a boyfriend-stealing brunette and a red-headed prude. While the message of the song is far from female empowerment, it seems she’s finally embraced a less abrasive side, making the unabashed pop music she’s faulted others for in the past.
Soulja Boy, “Crank That,” from Souljaboytellem.com (INTERSCOPE)
Ya gots ta be multi-format these days, and there was no better example of video aiding and abetting audio than this ATL kiddo’s uber-ubiquitous, ultra-catchy dance anthem. His MySpace page was thick with how-to clips (please, don’t mess up the Superman section) and messages from trillions of fans. YouTube was loaded with tributes and satires, from yarmulke doo-rags to Santa’s elves gliding to the groove. So, yeah, DeAndre Ramone Way wasn’t fibbing when he said his reach stretched “from the Internet to Main Street.” There’s glory in one-hit-wonderville, and even though one Web commenter rightly declared that Soulja Boy blabbered “on the mic like he just woke up,” the song of the summer (sorry, Rihanna) proved to be a bubblecrunk gem.
Some gossip stories are too big to forget. We’re counting down the 20 biggest, baddest, and most ridiculous celeb scandals of the year. You’ll get a new one posted every day.
Be honest – you loved it when Paris Hilton went to jail for driving on a suspended license, and you loved it even more when she was released early and then dragged back in a fit of tears. Those three Paris-free weeks were a short and sweet glimpse into what life was like before Hilton burst onto the scene flashing her vag, and damn do we miss 2002. When it was all said and done, Paris left Lynwood and headed straight to Larry King, professing herself a changed woman who loved reading the bible behind bars. She called jail “traumatic”and “scary” and even read some of her behind-bars journal entries. She wrote, “They say when you reach a crossroad or a turning point in life, it really doesn’t matter how we got there, but it’s what we do next after we got there.”
Since her stint in jail, Paris has been doing what does does best – helping others by partying in slinky outfits, dancing around, and pimping crappy products with her name on them. As she said, it’s “a new beginning” – of the same old sh*t.
