Lots of us have gaming fever. So it’s no surprise that Ice-T likes to get super focused on the screen and the strategy. In a chat with our game site, he recently said that being alone and riding the mouse are two of his favorite things.
“I’m a very solitary cat. If I have five guys over and we’re talking business, I’m like, ‘OK, time for y’all to leave.’ With games online, I can play with a lot of people without having them over my house to eat my sh*t. ”
What’s the O.G. playing these days? Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Says Ice: “As much trouble as I got in…all these guys do is try to shoot cops.” Told you: O.G.
After the jump: the final installment of the Ask New York interview series (read Part 1, Part 2 and a very special Part 3). To wrap things up, New York fields questions on movie roles, physical violence and giving bi a try. You know, the usual.
Tila, sweetheart, night-blooming jasmine of our love, how disappointed we were that you extended your show’s run by another week. We knew that you were a master of suspense, a sensei in the art of the tease, a certified Ph.D in the prolonging of climax, but we were ill-prepared by how empty our lives would feel, not knowing whether or not you would choose Dani or Bobby to become your paramour for yet another seven days. And so, our hands clasped behind our heads, our breath deep, slow and somnolent, we lay in bed and fantasized about what you could possibly have in store for your firefighting sweetheart and your film-student pookie-kins. In short, this is our dream episode of A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, one which will never air. But in our dreams, in the visions of you that spring so readily to the fore of our minds during the bewitching hours after-dark, we realized an essential truth about the nature of your contestants. Sometimes, the masculine is the feminine . . . and vice-versa. How bizarre.
You were there through the bad driving, the head-shaving, and the Criss Angel thing. It’s been a tough year for our girl. No one could have imagined a mere 12 months ago that she’d create such glorious new nonsense every week. Some of the craziness escapes you? Come back every day: We’re counting down the events that made up the Year in Britney.
March 5 – Anarchy in the R.C. – A little thing like rehab wasn’t going to stop the amazing stories about Britney from coming. In what might be the most deliciously ridiculous tale to be told about Britney this year (though, to be fair, that Chinese-twins adoption thing may take the cake), our anti-hero is said to have scrawled 666 on her head, screamed, “I am the Antichrist!” and then attempted to hang herself. Lucky for an Earth full of voyeurs, she was not successful. [Softpedia]
March 15 – Coke Addict – Even more highly unlikely, but-wouldn’t-that-be-awesome-if-it-were-true yarn emerged (can you tell how bored the press was during the 30 days Brit was away?): Star reported that Britney had a 24-can-a-day Coke habit. For the caffeine buzz that would give you, the 3,300 calories would be but a small price to pay, no? The other part of the rag’s story is that Britney was a raving diva in rehab. That part wasn’t so hard to believe. [Star]
March 21 – Free at Last! – Britney left rehab and leaped right back into our arms. Or maybe it just seemed that way. Her to-be-ex-manager Larry Rudolph issued a statement, claiming that Britney had “been released by the Promises Malibu Treatment Center after successfully completing their program.” As the remaining nine months of 2007 would teach us, “successfully” is a relative term.

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
Though the official word didn’t come until later in the summer, gossips knew all the way back in May that Hollywood’s skinniest starlet was packin’ baby weight. Given her size, it seemed impossible back then, but Richie’s rocked the baby belly better than any other starlet – certainly way better than Mama Spears! Who would have thought that Nicole’s pregnancy would spawn the end of her bad girl image and the birth of a nicer, gentler Nicole, perhaps instigated by her baby-daddy, tattooed nice-guy Joel Madden. She even donated her baby shower gifts and started a charity for mothers-in-need! The new Nicole is a huge improvement from the skinny shell of a socialite we once loathed, and we have her soon-to-be born baby to thank for that.
It’s hard to define rock and roll these days. Punk pissiness, hard-hitting blues, disco fever? It’s all got an attitude that suits the music’s essence. This year the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is all over the place with its inductees list – and that’s good. Pop’s agent provocateur Madonna, the punchy denim rocker John Mellencamp, the sophisticated poet Leonard Cohen; each will be on board at the Hall’s annual ceremony at New York’s Waldorf Astoria. This time around it’s scheduled for March 10, 2008. VH1 Classic will show the event live. Here’s the entire list.
She’s been blowing minds ever since she wore underwear as outerwear, back in the early ’80s. The Material Girl is the ultimate changeling, moving from dance pop to trance pop, reinvigorating the art of spectacle along the way.
His began as a chart-topping tough guy, fighting authority and singing ditties about Jack and Diane. He became a dedicated man of the people, rocking political moves with Farm Aid and his recent Jena Six track.
A soft-spoken lyricist who worked in Dylan’s shadow and created cinematic tracks about the anxiety of love, the Canadian bard has always worked the philosophical angle. His miniatures ask big questions.
The Dave Clark Five
They rode the coat tails of the Beatles, but give it up: the Brit-Pop wonders dropped a string of great, frenzied songs between ’64 – ’66. From “Can’t You See That She’s Mine” to “Catch Us If You Can,” they were a blast.
Car tunes, surf tunes, riff tunes – the instrumental combo cornered the market on cool, oddball ditties in the early ’60s with classics such as “Walk, Don’t Run,” “Telstar,” and “Apache.” Every garage band has played one of their tunes at least once.
A master of the blues harp, the rough and tumble band leader helped Muddy Waters build his fierce and sexy Chicago blues before breaking off on his own to cut an array of gnarled little gems such as “Juke” and “Off the Wall.”
Gamble & Huff
Writers and producers both, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff hooked up to concoct one of R&B most durable sounds: Philly Soul. They’re responsible for the perfection that is Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes‘ “Back Stabbers” and The O’Jays‘ “Love Train.”
Which artist are you most hot to see at the Hall of Fame show?
Box Set: Madonna
Katie Holmes was nothing before she met Tom Cruise. But don’t take our word for it, just listen to her in a new interview with In Style: “I try every day to let him know how much I love him. It gets better and better. It has made my life.” Awww. Isn’t that just…horrible? I mean, have a little self-worth Katie! You can “make” your life on your own too. Tom didn’t get you that awesome gig on Dawson’s Creek, did he? Come on girl, give yourself a little credit. Katie goes on to creepily gush about the sexy moment she shares with her tiny lover. “Tom likes me in a suit and a mini every now and then. I like it when he likes it. It makes me blush,” she coos in the mag’s January issue. “He’ll say, ‘You look good. I hope security’s going with you.’ Now that gives me attitude.”
Finally, Katie shows a little spice. Still, she insists that Tom is like, the greatest thing to ever happen to her – ever. “I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive human being…I still get like that, ‘Whew.’ When you fall in love, it’s as though time stops. It’s all-encompassing.”
We get it! It must be like that all-encompassing feeling of nausea we have right now in our stomach.
This year’s Grammy announcements have been made, and Fall Out Boy is pissed. At Ashlee Simpson, that is. According to a report in the New York Daily News, a source says that the band is blaming Ashlee and Pete’s relationship for the lack of nominations the band received for this year’s Infinity on High.
“Grammy voters are fed up with Ashlee after she was caught lip-synching. Her relationship with Pete has definitely affected public opinion of the band,” a source told OK! magazine. “They think everything Ashlee touches is poison, and they really want her to stop touching Pete!” It’s not the first time a Simpson sister has ruined an artist’s career — has anyone seen Nick Lachey doing anything other than chugging beers and opening presents on the cover of People?
So what if some hot French model came forward and alleged that after meeting Tony Parker at his wedding to Eva Longoria, they sent sexy text messages to each other and carried on an affair in Paris and Texas this fall? So what. Tony and Eva are in love and the accusations are like, SOOOOO false. How do we know? Because they said so! Yesterday Tony said, “I love my wife. She’s the best thing in my life, and I have never been happier,” while Eva gushed, “Tony has been nothing short of the perfect husband.”
Isn’t that enough evidence right there? Eva is an angel sent from a special heaven just for VIPs, and she leaves gold fairy dust around the house that just brightens every day! Tony wakes Eva up by massaging her feet and then draws her a warm bath and serves her breakfast right there in the tub. Then he takes her shopping at Target and Chanel and buys her whatever she wants! And he gave her a stable with a million ponies to ride, right next to the basketball of gold that she built him after he remembered to put the toilet seat down. They are the most perfect, happiest pair ever!
