Some Idiot Gets Stuck in a Chimney


Here’s a Friday video treat for you – wonderfully serious news footage of a man in Indiana who got drunk and tried to get back into his girlfriend’s house via her chimney. Surprise! It didn’t work, and the fire department had to break a wall to get him out. His girlfriend’s response? She throws beer bottles at his head. It’s the feel-good viral video of the week! [via BeepBoop]

At Least Diddy Loves Britney Spears


diddy_britney.jpgWho knew that the only person to come to Britney Spears’ defense after her VMAs dance disaster would be Diddy? The rapper only had nice things to say about his pal, which kind of makes us love him more (Britney, however – is still lame), Combs said, “The times that I was around her, in her defense, she don’t (sic) drink any alcohol. I didn’t see her drink. You know I was hospitable, I offered everybody a drink and you know she had water. “Everybody has their own way.”

In regards to Brit staying up until sunrise just hours before she was supposed prove to the world that she was back, Diddy replied, “Some people deal with, you know, nerves, they can’t go to sleep and you don’t know what the problem is. To just say ‘Oh, her career is over she [is] done,’ to discount all her work beforehand because she is a human being — we all go through hard times.”

Damn, Diddy actually makes sense. We’ll leave Britney’s career alone for a second, but it still seems fair to rag on her for sucking on a pacifier, doesn’t it? Even Diddy can’t deny that. [Access Hollywood. Image: Getty]

Whitney Houston’s Crazed Birthday


Ramping up for Hip-Hop Honors, we spoke with each of this year’s heroes for our “Tales From the Road” series. During the chats we asked them to recall some crazed moments of their career. Andre Harrell, the former boss of Uptown Records, and one of the progenitors of New Jack Swing instantly remembered his first taste of fame: it involves Whitney Houston, a screeching organ grinder’s monkey, and a p*ssed off Eddie Murphy. Oh yeah, a couple guys also got frisked…twice. Check it out!

Friday’s Reviews Rage: Good Luck Chuck


good-luck-chuck-jessica.jpgEvery week we round up selections from the funniest and most brutal film criticism out there so that you don’t waste your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: Good Luck Chuck isn’t funny, entertaining, credible or witty. The film stars Dane Cook as a dentist whose love-life has been cursed. Jessica Alba is his crush. His best friend is Dan Fogler. And together the three of them are about as funny as a fart joke. A not-funny fart joke. The kind of fart joke that reads like a form from the IRS. A fart joke that could make you declare bankruptcy! Laughing yet?

“I’ve occasionally heard Dane Cook, one of the stars of Good Luck Chuck, described as a comedian. I find this confusing, since my understanding is that comedians are people who say and do things that are funny. Perhaps Mr. Cook is some new kind of conceptual satirist whose shtick is to behave in the manner of a person attempting to be funny without actually being, you know, funny. Or maybe he answered an ad in the back of a magazine and sent away for a mail-order license to practice comedy. Whether Jessica Alba, his co-star, acquired her acting credentials by similar means is an issue that will be addressed if she ever tries to act.” – The New York Times

“With any luck, you won’t upchuck.” – The New York Post

Kim Kardashian Dates Her Way to the Top


kimterrence0921.jpgThere she goes, getting more and more famous for doing nothing. That’s our girl! Kim Kardashian went from getting peed on by Brandy’s brother in an “adult” cinematic experience, to scoring a reality show, a Playboy spread, and now a real live Oscar-nominee. Kim has been spotted getting her groove on with Terrence Howard, who is currently separated from his wife. A spy revealed that the two made out at a couple of NYC clubs, saying “They were all over each other. She was sitting on his lap and he was rubbing her butt.”

Of course he was! Terrence is smart enough to know that if he rubs her butt long enough, a genie will pop out and grant him three wishes. But as a newly single dude getting it on with a hot piece of ass, hasn’t one wish already come true? [NY Post. Image: Getty]

You think we’d let you go without glancing that booty?

Lindsay Lohan: Actress. Addict. Homewrecker?


lindsay_lohanRemember those rehab rumors about a rehabbing Lindsay Lohan getting busy in a rehab restroom? There might be more truth to them than previously thought. A few weeks back Dead Stays Alive rocker Tony Allen and La Lohan were accused of getting it on while both were getting treatment at the Cirque Lodge in Utah. Both vehemently denied such claims, but now Allen’s wife, McDonald’s container heiress Stephanie, has thrown him out of the house. Just last week Lindsay’s rumored paramour was attempting to disabuse folks of his relationship with the 21-year-old starlet, stating that they’re “great friends. We share a common affliction, and we just talk about life.” He then went on to say that his band is Lindsay’s new fav. His denial runs counter to reports that 40-year-old Allen was heard bragging about bedding Lohan: “C’mon, it’s Lindsay Lohan. Hell, yes!” Class-act Allen was overheard making these claims in a pub. Sounds like the rehab didn’t really take.

Patti LaBelle Goes Nuts in Concert


The Lady Marmalade singer may not grace the blogosphere often, but when she does, she delivers! Mariah, Christina and Beyonce could learn a little something from Ms. LaBelle’s take no prisoners – or, no audience members – attitude. Check out this video of the singer ripping into a fan during her concert – after she invites him on-stage for a song. The clip ends with an apology (and a hug) from Patti – but not before things get really awkward. [via IDLYITW]

Let’s Talk About Salt-N-Pepa (The Celebreality Interview, Part 1)



“It was all a dream! I used to read Word Up! magazine! Salt-N-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine,” go the immortal first lines of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy.” But if you’re old enough to remember Word Up! in its heyday, you don’t need Biggie’s words to remind you that the image of Salt-N-Pepa alone could represent an entire genre of music. And if you don’t know, now you now: Salt-N-Pepa are living icons. The duo’s spicy brand of sass helped bring hip-hop to the mainstream in the ’80s, and their sense of humor, tangling flows, brazen independence and unmistakable consciousness kept it there into the ’90s. They persevered in a genre that was and is disproportionately male-dominated, not despite their femininity but because of it. They weren’t just the first female rappers to show the world that women could be a force in hip-hop, they were the best.

I got to spend some time with Cheryl “Salt” James Wray and Sandy “Pepa” Denton at Salt’s house on New York’s Long Island last week, as they shot promos for their upcoming reality show, The Salt-N-Pepa Show, which premieres Oct. 15 on VH1. While Cheryl’s house teamed with family members laughing, talking and eating, Salt-N-Pepa did their thing as veterans whose years in the entertainment industry date back over 20 years. They are nothing if not seasoned.

If you saw the preview for The Salt-N-Pepa Show that we posted a few weeks ago, you know that the fact they’re in the same room together (and often these days!) is a big deal. After years of estrangement and changing attitudes (for one thing, Cheryl intensified her spirituality), they’ve finally reunited. For me, it was an even bigger deal: I grew up loving these women and getting the chance to talk to them was an unbelievable opportunity. It was all a dream, indeed. Toward the end of their busy day, Cheryl, Sandy and I gathered around Cheryl’s dining room table to talk about their show, their music, hip-hop and so much more. Part 1 of our exclusive interview with Salt-N-Pepa starts after the jump…

Friday: Britney Pops a Pacifier in her Mouth

This time murder’s not the case they gave him. Instead, the rapper plead guilty to boarding a plane with a baton. [People]

Pics: Britney Plays with Baby Toys
There are train wrecks, and then there’s Britney. The only way she could look more pathetic while sucking her kid’s pacifier is if she had on a dunce cap and was standing in the corner. Seriously, someone help her. [Just Jared]

Paris’ Fake Generosity
The heiress is going to give away her clothes to children’s hospitals because she “never wears something twice.” Interestingly, she’s never worn underwear once. Maybe she should make herself a donation at Victoria’s Secret instead. [Mollygood]
