As previously reported, last Friday 50 Cent agreed to debate Kanye West about whose forthcoming album will be better — Curtis or The Graduate. The offer came from BET’s 106 & Park, to which 50 said, “Kanye, he’s not going to want to show up.” Well, Kanye proved 50 right by rejecting his challenge at yesterday’s MTV Video Music Awards announcements. In fact, Kanye called the debate “the stupidest thing.” While we agree that indeed the debate would be very stupid, we were looking forward to someone — anyone! — offering some sort of apology for holding it on September 11. That was the proposed date of the debate, which is also when both rappers’ records will be released. If Kanye hadn’t dashed 50′s plans, America would be one step closer to understanding why the rest of the world hates us.
The tiny-bodied, big-voiced singer has apparently fallen ill with exhaustion, also known as “Starlet Virus” or “The Lindsay Lohan Disease.” Exhaustion is often an excuse given by publicists when their client is sick with something else, so all bets are on as to what is really ailing Amy. She apparently was rushed to a London hospital after some sort of incident, and is now back at home under orders to have “complete rest.” This means no more concerts for the Brit, who was scheduled to perform at the Oya Festival in Norway tonight. It also presumably means no more booze for Winehouse, whose been known to lug around a Jack Daniels bottle from time to time. Hopefully now she’s gonna give her liver a little rest too.

Forget the chihuahua – the latest and greatest trend to be embraced by the stars is their own uber-sassy mothers. And you too can have one – just grab your mom, do something super effing stupid to get her reallll mad at you (or somebody else), and then shove her into that Louis Vuitton dog carrier you bought two seasons ago and tote her around for all the world to see. These days everyone in Hollywood’s got a p*ssed off mom!
- Usher’s mom Jonetta Patton hates his new wife so much that she skipped their tiny wedding to hit up a day spa!
- Lynne Spears and her daughter Britney are feuding so bad that Brit supposedly thinks her mama has knocked boots with K-Fed to get back at her!
- And good ol’ Dina Lohan is always angry with somebody – though never her cracked out daughter. Currently she’s being sued for swindling $400,000 out of a music producer and never paying him back. Tacky, sure – but trendy!
So take off the retro sunglasses, remove your leggings and lug your mama around instead. The baggage you two have is guaranteed to make you the top trendista in your hood. [Images: Getty]
The New York Post reports that on Monday, Britney Spears crashed her car into a parked station wagon. When she exited her vehicle, she told the paparazzi, “I’m a brainiac!” As a blogger, it’s thrilling to encounter a celebrity who writes her own punchlines. Brit just keeps getting better.

Kim Kardashian has officially become the queen of celebutards.
I have no idea how someone becomes famous for walking arm in arm with Paris, making a sex tape and having serious lady lumpage, but Kim has done it and the world is cheering! She is now even set to star in her own reality TV show, replacing Brits Kelly Osbourne and Kim Stewart after the pair of pals failed to impress the executives at E Online with their attempt at creating a Simple Life-type show. Her family – which includes step-dad/Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner and hunky step-brother/reality TV pro Brody – will serve as her supporting cast. This will surely be the television event of the year, because truly, there can never be enough hot girls with nice butts on TV. [NY Daily News]

That’s our Britney! The apparently very horny starlet dragged a bunch of her video dancers to the pool of an exclusive LA hotel, which she had opened especially for her group at 2am. The booze flowed, Brit got naked, everyone else follower her leaded, and a game of Truth or Dare ensued. Are you at all surprised by this, or that her infant sons were set to be dropped off at her house a mere 10 hours later by K-Fed? Nope. Brit got it on with one of the dancers, 21-year-old Matt Encinias, who told Us, “I was told all she wanted to do that night was kiss a boy. And that’s what she did. Mission accomplished.”
Matt was invited back to her suite where he discovered the singer ready for more booty action. “I went in and found Britney lying on the bed with her knees up and just a pair of pink panties on, ” he said. Matt was forced to bail before he could seal the deal because he had to take care of a drunk friend, saving the world from the possibility of third Brit-spawn. Back up dancers beware! Britney’s in need of some loving and she’ll stop at nothing to get it. And if you think you can resist her sextastic ways, think again – girlfriend’s wearing fake tattoos on her nipples. Pretty. Damn. Hot. [Us Weekly, The Sun. Image: Us Weekly]

…or something like that.
And you know what they say: it’s all fun and games…
…until a man-purse ends up in a mall fountain.
There is a man who few outside the “seduction community” are aware of, but VH1 has sought him out to help eight unlucky-in-love bachelors find the women of their dreams. Or at least become capable of approaching a girl without sweating profusely and stuttering uncontrollably. This man’s name is Mystery, and while he may look like a cross between a cowboy and a vampire, he is quite successful with the ladies.
