Smack-talking Britpop princess Lily Allen has lambasted this week’s Britpop princess, Amy Winehouse (much the way Lady Sovereign lambasted Lily a few weeks ago). In this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Allen discusses Winehouse’s hard-partying habits: “She goes to all those parties . . . and hangs out with Kelly Osbourne and Kate Moss. I don’t understand that need to become famous.” This after Allen says, “Nobody’s ever had a picture of me rolling out of a nightclub at five in the morning completely out of my head on Ecstasy, and coked out of my brains.” Allen vs. Winehouse? Who’s going to win that one?

Mario Vasquez, who left the fourth season of American Idol for "family reasons" only to later sign to Arista Records, has been accused of masturbating on the set in an attempt to seduce former assistant accountant Magdaleno Olmos. Magdaleno’s lawsuit tells the salacious tale of a February 2005 incident, in which Mario came onto Magdaleno in a bathroom on the set of Idol, first groping himself, then Magdaleno and then offering the underling oral sex. Magdaleno claims that he was eventually fired after bringing the incident to the attention of a supervisor.
Two years go by and Magdaleno now decides to sue? Does Mario suffer from the O.J. Simpson syndrome of slow-moving sperm? At least this is scaring up some attention for Mario, which his self-titled album failed to do. Suddenly, the title of his most recent single, "One Shot," makes a lot more sense. [TMZ.com]
Video: American Idol Videos!
A few flashes of the bulb and Rob’s flipping out. Just another day on Surreal Life Fame Games! And, in other news…
…she’s outta here!
Stephen Stills told us that black culture defined American culture, Grandmaster Flash told us that hip-hop was rock ‘n’ roll, and Patti Smith told us that her late mom liked to vacuum the house to "Rock ‘n’ Roll N*gger." It was a beautiful one-world fest at the Hall of Fame ceremonies last night. The Ronettes, R.E.M, Van Halen, Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, and Patti Smith were all inducted. Most poignant performance: R.E.M.’s "Gardening at Night" or Smith’s spin on the Stones’ "Gimme Shelter." Idolator sniped at it in real time. The Times reported on it this morning. Catch the show hightlights this Saturday on VH1.

You can make bets on who’s the worst American Idol singer and whether Antonella will have a post-show career, so of course you can bet on whether or not Heather Mills McCartney’s’ prosthetic leg falls off when she starts to twirl and whirl on Dancing With the Stars next week. Don’t go too crazy with the wager, though; Mills looks like she knows what she’s doing. And anyway, if her alleged $56 million settlement is real, she can hire plenty of dudes to put that leg back on real quick.
Weigh in: how much $$$$ does Heather actually deserve for her stint as Mrs. McCartney?

Most women in Hollywood are defensive about their weight, but Kate Winslet took things to the legal realm to prove that she isn’t. The notoriously curvaceous actress has won a libel suit against the U.K.’s Grazia magazine over a story claiming that she enlisted a Chinese herbalist to help her control her weight. Kate has frequently spoken out about not bowing to the pressures women, particularly famous ones, face over their size. "I am not a hypocrite," read part of Kate’s statement "I have always been, and shall continue to be, honest when it comes to body/weight issues. I feel very strongly that ‘curves’ are natural, womanly and real." For the magazine’s part, it will print an apology and fork over a "substantial" damages payment that Kate says she’ll donate to charity. Might we suggest the Save the Manatee Club, the Ronald McDonald House and/or MoveOn.org’s Bake Sale for Democracy?
