Embarrassed Vanessa Hudgens Cancels on Leno
After the full-frontal nudie pix of the star circulated the Net, Hudgens decided to lay low and keep out of the spotlight for awhile. That’s understandable, except that it’s a strategy that won’t work. The soundtrack to High School Musical 2 has sold eleventy-billion copies, and for the under 15-set, she’s more famous than anyone, basically. [E Online]

O.J. Arrested After Vegas B&E
Looks like Mr. If I Did It has done it again. The Juice, a once respected football player and mildly comedic actor, was arrested on suspicion of breaking into a Las Vegas hotel room. He was released. Then he sort-of-kind-of confessed. It’s all very confusing. [TMZ]

Fred Durst’s Voice Isn’t His Only Deadly Weapon

Rock on TV – Johnny Cash Back From the Dead


walk_the_lineJonesing for music on your television set? You’ve come to the right place, rockers! Check out our shortlist below. For more extensive listings, read VH1’s Rock on TV schedule daily.

Walk the Line, 11:20 a.m. (EST), HBO Zone: Joaquin Phoenix does an absolutely spooky job channeling the Man in Black in this Oscar-nominated flick about Johnny Cash’s lifethat set the bar for biopics. Brilliant performance scenes feature actors doing all their own singing, and singers doing some acting (Shooter Jennings, Tyler Hilton), but not in a Madonna-Swept Away kind of way. We promise.

Pretty in Pink, 8:00 p.m. (EST), AMC: This ’80s teen angst opus pretty much defined what a soundtrack should do — mixing power pop titans like New Order and INXS amongst sh*t you’d never heard before. John Hughes Poster Girl Molly Ringwald stars, and her former boyfriend and Zappa progeny Dweezil gets a SAG card with a line in a club scene.

What the Eff is Diddy Doing?


Check out this video of Diddy allegedly buying some ecstasy in Ibiza. We say allegedly because the f*cking thing is sideways, and you can’t really see anything other a bunch of guys standing around while really craptastic music ruins their ear drums (seriously, the guys in the clown wigs and the police officer dude should consider reevaluating their life choices thus far). But, I mean, of course it’s Diddy buying E! Obvs. Or it’s Diddy buying some pizza, trading Magic cards, or grabbing a baseball bat to swing at those douchebags behind him. Your guess is as good as ours.

Tori Amos Sings Britney a Song


Tori AmosTim‘s weighed in. Kanye‘s got an opinion. And now? Flame-haired piano humper Tori Amos has spoken out on the Britney debacle. At a September 11th concert in Melbourne, Australia, the singer coyly stated, “I have a comment…We’ve all seen it on the news,” remaining oblique enough that fans might have thought she would address the September 11th tragedies, but Amos had another tragedy in mind. She then launched into a brand new song about Britney Spears and the shambles her life has become. “Britney, they set you up/ But you drank from their cup,” Amos crooned, then sang “Well, maybe you’re a mother/ But you still need your mother.” Who knew Tori had a subscription to UsWeekly? Turns out this isn’t the first time Tori’s turned to celeb events for inspiration — she took a swipe at Lindsay Lohan in her song “I’m Not Stupid.”

The Celebreality Interview – Brandi M.



“But really, who doesn’t suck d*** in this world?” says Brandi M., when asked about her infamous fellatio-referencing nickname. But whether you choose to call her, “B***j** Brandi,” “B.B.” or “Wild Thing,” in the interview below, Brandi proves that a rose by any other name is just as thorny. After the jump, Brandi talks about her frequent bouts with alcohol poisoning (nine times and counting!), her flip-flopping emotions on her final episode, mixing vodka with her Russian heritage and why she has all the respect in the world for strippers.

Oops! Britney Disses Timbaland & Justin


britney-913.jpgSo the rumors were true – Britney, her ex Justin Timberlake, and uber-producer Timbaland were set to mix it up in the studio together and make that whole Britney Comeback thing an actual reality – and a success. What could have been “the best thing that ever happened,” according to Tim, is now just a dream. “It’ll never happen,” the producer said recently. “Nah. It could’ve, but it won’t.”

So what went wrong? Apparently BritBrit got “big-headed” (of course) and “[was] like, ‘Screw you, screw you, I don’t need nobody.’” And she’s right – all she needs is an assistant, a couple of babies, an all-night party, a set of crappy extensions, a few lollipops, her ciggies, and a bottle of Southern Comfort, ya’ll. Timbaland claims Brit could still make the magic happen if she just apologized, but we know that this is one stubborn Southern girl. Just ask her estranged parents. Instead, we better just add this to the long list of Britney’s career suicide attempts. We’re scared to see what it’ll look like when she finally succeeds. [MTV. Image: Getty]

New James Blunt CD: Good As The First?


James Blunt Interview

“It’s a great live song with a dirty, gritty feel that’s about mortality and the magic of life. We sat around the studio and captured it live, and we haven’t edited it in any way. It has a Massive Attack feel.”

That’s James Blunt describing “I’ll Take Everything.” If it seems like a stretch that the “You’re Beautiful” balladeer hears echoes of the ominous synth-soul superheroes in his tune, you don’t have to take him at his word. We’ve been streaming Blunt’s All the Lost Souls for the last few days and will continue to do so through next Tuesday – you can hear the whole CD for yourself on The Leak.

“I’ll Take Everything” isn’t the only song he describes; in Track By Track he tell us that some new tunes are about the “thirst for fame” and people “in real difficulty.” Check out the entire disc and the full interview, and let us know if you think All the Lost Souls is as good as Blunt’s first album.
