Dre Going Away?

by

dre_retiring.jpgDon’t get so comfortable staring at Dr. Dre‘s freshly ripped physique — there may soon come a time that we barely see him at all. The 42-year-old hip-hop superproducer and sometime rapper has announced that Detox will be his final solo album, chalking that up to the fact that rapping is “a young man’s game.” He has no plans of dropping out of hip-hop all together, though — he just plans on remaining behind the boards as a producer (next up is Eminem‘s album). Says Dre:

When I think of the future, I think a lot of Quincy Jones and how he is an inspiration. Look at the quality of his work over so many years. He didn’t even make his best record, Thriller, until he was 50. That gives me something to look forward to. Nothing pulls you back into the studio more than the belief that your best record is still ahead.”

Of course, by “your best record is still ahead,” he could very well be referring to Detox, which has been pushed back again to 2008 (that means it’s eight years in the making). Dre says he only has two or three more tracks to finish, but don’t hold your breath: he could be putting it off because saying goodbye is so damn hard. [Los Angeles Times / Image: Getty]

Meg White: Music for Stained Sheets

by

Meg WhiteDon’t care whether Meg White’s sex tape is real or not. Only care about which White Stripes song titles can be construed in an erotique manner. Which of her own tunes would Lady Meg listen to if she was doing the wild thing with her gentleman d’jour? Let’s start from way back and work up to the present day, and when you’re done, let us know which Detroit ditty you think has the nastiest title.

1. “Screwdriver”

2. “Slicker Drips”

3. “Sugar Never Tasted So Good”

4. “Jimmy the Exploder”

Kanye Is Better Than You – All of You

by

Not that we thought we were the “number one human being in music,” but just in case there was any confusion – we’re not. Neither are you. King Kanye West has declared himself “the president of greatness,” and apparently we chose him for the position. At least he looks like he’s enjoying himself. If only we could be his Siamese twin and tag along for the ride. [BWE]

Tour Survival Guide: Maroon 5

by

maroon_5

Our Tour Survival Guide checks in with rockers about life on the road. Here’s Maroon 5′s Adam Levine on the perils of antihistimines, yoga and the greatest city on earth.

Cold Medication Can Be Hazardous To Your Rock
I was sick and we were playing a show in Vancouver. I was really stuffed up, so I took an antihistamine, which I never take. It sped me up and made me koo-koo and weird. So I smoked a joint to mellow out, and that was just the worst idea ever. I went out there and freaked out. It was a nightmare. An hour is a long time to be on stage. It was about three years ago. I’ll never do that again. I like to save my substances for when I don’t have anything in particular to do.

The Band That Huddles Together…
It’s nice when you’re playing music with a group of guys to all be touching in a slightly homoerotic but mostly friendly way. We do the huddle thing, and we tell each other how wonderful we all think the others are. We want to all feel good about ourselves and about playing music. It’s important to huddle before every show. It keeps you in touch. You can’t go on stage without a huddle.

Lindsay’s Rehab Release Just Days Away!

by

lindsay0925.jpgDear Lindsay Lohan,

I heard today that you may leave rehab this weekend. I was immediately scared, as it means you will surely be getting into all sorts of trouble very soon and I’ll have no choice but to write about it and get my carpal tunnel syndrome all messed up again. Ouch. There’s some important stuff you need to know about, as a lot has changed since you stole that car high on coke and ended up back in ‘hab. Hopefully this will help make your transition back to Hollywood – and back onto the mighty gossip blogs – fun n’ easy!

1. Vanessa Hudgens is the new you.
This chick is hotter, younger, and has real live naked pics for us to drool over! And she’s actually been in a popular movie this year. She has replaced you and therefore you must fight with her when you fall off the wagon at Hyde/Winston’s/Les Deux.

2. Having a baby is not a trend just because Nicole Richie is doing it.
I’d steer clear of doing this until you’ve been with your latest boy toy for at least three weeks – maybe a month.

3. Paris Hilton is now dating a uber-hot pizza delivery boy from Sweden.
You’ll be expected to get with a janitor from the lost city of Atlantis. Cheeseball married guys who wear bandanas and claim to be in bands do not count.

4. George Clooney has a new girlfriend.
Now would be the right time for you to try to steal him away.

5. Stop making that effing peace sign.
Just because.

Missy Elliott Goes Country

by

In this Doritos commercial, that is. To promote their brand-new Collisions line, Doritos caught our beloved Missy Elliot and a studio collaborator, working on a problematic track. After munching away for a few seconds on what seems to be psychedelic chips, our Hip Hop Honors honoree realizes the direction she needs to go in.

Tiffany Threatens R. Kelly With a Good Time

Remember Tiffany?

tiff_face.jpg

How could you not? The woman who introduced the world to the phrase, “Don’t threaten me with a good time,” has moved from one rock star to another: VH1′s own Tiff makes a cameo in R. Kelly’s new video “Rock Star.” Watch it below and see if you can spot Tiff (hint: she’s in the bus sequences on the left of the screen — she’s wearing a pink corset, which, of course she is!):

After the jump are some screen shots of her cameo:

What’s in Britney Spears’ Bloodstream?

by

druggiebritney.jpgThe judge in Britney’s custody case has ordered the new restrictions in her case to be put in place, meaning our girl’s gonna be attending those parenting classes real soon. Even better, Brit’s gotta get drug tested twice a week, and we can’t wait to see what they reveal. What could possibly be floating around in that girl’s bloodstream – besides, you know, all the drugs and booze she supposedly ingests?

  • Two tons of Starbucks Venti Java Chip Frappuccino
  • Seventeen liters of Clairol Nice n’ Easy Hair Dye in Natural Light Ash Blonde
  • A bottle’s worth of Fantasy by Britney Spears perfume
  • Cheetos resin
  • One fake nail chewed off five minutes before VMAs performance
  • Bit Bit the chihuahua
  • A couple of fedoras

The Pick Up Artist: Finale Recap!

by

Go Kosmo!

A month of tears, break dancing, rejection, furry hats, more tears, a name change, a stripper with a boyfriend, a peach that needed some kissing, tears, a Speedo, a dork named Kip, a little more tears and Pradeep. Was it all worth it? We’d guess yes! In his own words, The Nerd Formerly Known as Alvaro is “so money” right now. And not just because he’s $50,000 richer, peeps. Kosmo is THE PICK UP ARTIST! And that title is worth more that dollar bills, ya’ll. Right?
