- A racier cut of Britney‘s “Gimme More” video hits the web with scenes of a shirtless Brit dancing with tape over her boobs. I’ve never felt such sympathy for adhesive. [Dlisted]
- Rihanna takes to the streets showing off her new toy poodle. That’s not a euphemism, unfortunately. [CONCRETELOOP]
- Fergie goes head to head with Salt-N-Pepa and J.J. Fad in a mash-up. And in the end, all that’s left of Fergie is a puddle of Botox. [CityRag]
- Janet Jackson says she’s writing a book about her weight loss and gain. It’s called Ribs: Scarfing ‘Em Down and Taking ‘Em Out. [Crunk + Disorderly]
- Joel Madden, please remove your shirt. I’m craving beef (but not ribs, obv!). [Seriously? OMG! WTF?]
Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers about life on the road. VH1’s You Oughta Know artist Brandi Carlile tells us about missing dogs, swallowing gum, and her groupies.
Gumming Up the Works
I used to really like Orbitz, but now I like that gum Stride. It lasts forever. It’s like the everlasting gobstopper in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. [I chew gum on stage] all the time. I get so much sh*t for it because I’m always chewing on stage and people can hear you chewing gum, which is not a good thing. I’m a total gum swallower too.
The Dog Whisperer
[The hardest part of touring is] not having animals around. I feel so much more like myself when there are animals around. If I go to the park [while I’m on tour] and I see squirrels I’m like, “Oh thank god there’s animals.” If I could bring a dog on the road I would be so happy. Someday I will take my dog on the road.
Ah, New York’s back, and it’s as though she never left. Everything feels so familiar! Oh, wait…is that because the opening footage on this first episode is the same opening footage we saw on the first episode last time around?
No matter. The boobs are bigger, the hair is nicer, the men are hotter and the weirdness is…weirder.
For example, say hello to my little friend:
He’s shy at first, but he really opens up once you get to know him.
Oh, Tila. You are the queen of the Internets, the Maharani of MySpace, the raison d’etre behind MTV’s most gripping program since Johnny Knoxville unwisely lit out for the brighter (?) lights of B-movie tripe. You have won our hearts, our souls, and, more recently, our eyeballs.
Tonight your show debuts. We are counting the minutes. Every second seems a smelly, unreasonable eternity. We should explain: We will be watching A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila very, very closely, for we will be recapping the show here at the VH1 Blog. We will thrill to the sight of your bisexual dating program, wherein men (if you can call them that) and women (whose average mien appears influenced by and promotional of Human Growth Hormone and the San Fernando Valley) compete for your affections.
It is, we say, an historical moment. We have been waiting far too long. So, apparently, have certain frothy elements of the culture, whose right-wing sensibilities and conservative spending habits have been offended by your young, lithe, nubile, tanned . . . er, ambitions. We are proud to see you taking a stand for diversity — not to mention dignity, a staple that’s lately gone missing from the larder — on your MySpace blog. You write:
“Ever since the announcement of my new TV show(about being bisexual) I know that it has raised quite the controversy…especially with the conservatives, but even more recently, THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH!!! They have made it clear that what I am doing is wrong and that I am ‘cooperating with the adversary’ It’s ridiculous!”
Oh, Tila. At VH1, we would never assume you were colluding with Satan.
Tila Tequila Takes All Comers
It’s kind of unclear where exactly Lindsay Lohan is at the moment – but one thing’s for certain, she is NOT at rehab. The actress has transitioned out of Cirque Lodge and is currently in a “non-residential program” in Utah where she will continue her treatment before heading off to shoot her new movie Dare to Love Me. Next stop after that – back to Utah for more rehab luv! Linds has already started blabbing about her new self in the latest issues of OK! and In Touch. The girl gives the same ol’ story of every other rehabilitated starlet (remember Paris’ pile of BS after jail?). To summarize:
New boyfriend, didn’t sleep with old guy, cleaned common area, never going to night clubs again, real friends don’t pressure me to go out, hit rock bottom, going to Africa, love siblings, Karma is a bitch, I am woman hear me roar. Also I am a genius-super talented-God’s gift to the earth actor. So there.
Check out pics of Lilo’s new 25-year old snowboarder boyfriend Riley and enjoy personal rehab pics taken by Lindsay herself. And yeah, we wish the newly clean starlet the best. [Perez Hilton/DListed. Image: Getty]

Sexy New York Pics
Just like the city she is nicknamed after, New York is exciting, loud, sexy, fast, electric, flashy, bold and just a little bit crazy. Which is why the entire world can’t get enough of her and her on-screen antics. Ms. Tiffany Pollard has already flaunted her goods – and her sass – on two seasons of Flavor of Love as well as on her own hit, I Love New York. After Tango broke her heart (and their engagement) she restarted her hunt in I Love New York 2 for someone who can not only win her love – but someone who deserves it. Regardless of how her quest turns out, we confess our allegiance – she’s the Head B*tch in Charge of our hearts.

Mary Alice Stephenson is the co-host of America’s Most Smartest Model, the game show where chiseled specimens of humanity compete to discredit a musty pop-culture cliche: that pretty people are dumb. (Guess what? They’re not.)
We caught up with Mary Alice after the premiere to learn the inside dope on what went down, and to get her take on style in general. Interview after the jump.
