More than three months after rumblings of the existence of Kim Kardashian, Superstar (and a month after actual footage leaked), Kim Kardashian has admitted to knowing about her long-delayed sex tape all along. “I really didn’t think [it] was coming out,” she told Complex. “I apologize for not publicly being honest…but I felt like at the time that’s all that I could have said.” Thank god, because I thought maybe she was just staring intospace and aimlessly jiggling her chest and butt, instead of, you know, playing up for the camera.
In other Kardashian news, the adult-film super company behind KKS has offered a four-porno directing deal to Ray J, Kim’s co-star and “director.” He won’t necessarily need to appear in the films as part of the deal, which is either a testament to his talents as a director or a blow to his “talent” as a “performer.” [TMZ.com]
After lots of gossip, Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has confirmedChristopher Walken‘s involvement in the extraordinary rock book-turned-movie "The Dirt," which chronicles the bad-ass band’s rise to fame and descent into drugs. In addition to Walken’s role as ant-snorting rocker Ozzy Osbourne, 47-year-old Val Kilmer is slated to play the spandex-strutting David Lee Roth. It’s unclear as to why Kilmer, who in real life is four years Roth’s junior, was selected to play the studly singer as he was twenty years ago.
In related news, Nikki Six has been recording the soundtrack to his book "The Heroin Diaries." Of the recording process, Six says: "It’s like were [sic] standing on a cliff with our eyes shut, arms open and just falling. Extending ourselves in faith that someone will catch us, and relishing the freedom that comes from that place."
It took a while, but Britney Spears finally said "yes, yes, yes" to a bit of clean-up. Those fans looking for an anthem that speaks to that "no, no, no" phase a few weeks ago can still have a giggle, however. Check this mash-up that splices footage of the fallen pop star with the audio of Winehouse’s controversial single, “Rehab.” If this video is anything to judge by, it would seem Spears’s aunt has the right idea – go home, Britney. Otherwise, you could end up with a tour rider that looks like Winehouse’s.

The new entry in the Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School Starring Mo’Nique pre-series series is online. In this webisode, catch Rain on a rock climb, visit Bootz’s mansion (!) and watch some fans gawk at Pumkin. There’s plenty of drooling, but no spitting, unfortunately. Watch it below:
With his new CD Shock Value hitting the streets on April 3, Timbalandposted a video preview of the album online. So based on this label-approved leak, what parts of the new disc sound like they work? Easy. Those moments when Timmy lets his thumpa-thumpa do the talking, like on club-bangers "Bounce" (featuring Dre and Justin Timberlake) and "The Way I Are" (featuring Keri Hilson and D.O.E.) Which parts are whack? When the guests make themselves too at home, like on the Fall Out Boy cut (and possibly the M.I.A. track). And what’s weird? The fact that Swedish punks the Hives are guesting. Seeing their collabo sandwiched between Nelly Furtado and Elton John is straight-up surreal, giving me hope that Shock Value just might live up to its name.

Unlikely though it may be, the former Mr. Spears is getting into the online search business: Kevin Federline just launched his own search engine. Like Google or Yahoo (which it’s powered by), Search with Kevin allows users to trawl the Net, looking for news, images, items and the like. Unlike Google or Yahoo, however, if you Search with Kevin, you could win prizes, like, say, tickets to the dude’s private birthday March 24th in Las Vegas. As of yet, there’s no word back on whether certain search terms – do rag, PopoZao, Vanilla Ice – have been doing better than others.
