Who’s Talking Crazy Now?


Travolta Superstar actor John Travolta is known for many reasons: Scientology, airplane-flying and especially for talking out of turn. The L. Ron Hubbard-er is a frequent contributor of the sort of quotes that make the yellow press just a little more jaundiced. You have to wonder if he thinks before he speaks. Consider this week’s gem, in which he discusses how popular he was when he was in costume (as a woman) on the set of Hairspray: "You should have seen everyone on the set. Every woman and every man was feeling my breasts and squeezing my ass. And I was ‘C’mon, feel me, touch me!’ I didn’t care. I was just a slut, to be frank!" For that statement, Mr. Travolta, you have been nominated as the VH1 Blog’s crazy-talker of the week!

Below, enjoy more of Revolta’s wit and witticism:

The Charitable Paris Hilton


Don’t be fooled by the heiress’ recent Hawaiian vacation – she’s already off and running with all that do-goody stuff she had planned. But forget the halfway house and Breast Cancer research – Paris is going above and beyond her previous promises with some real, true giving.

Her first charitable act? Befriending Lindsay Lohan – again. The two ran into each other at a fourth of July bash in Malibu, and their interaction was reportedly "cordial", as Paris "has decided to give Lindsay a second chance." How generous!

Paris is also sharing her friends with a random stranger, whether she realizes it or not! A UCLA student unknowingly received Hilton’s old phone number  when she purchased a new cell phone, and she now gets tons of texts, calls and messages meant for P. Hey – the best (and easiest) kind of charity is done without even knowing it.

The E! Network is releasing a CD entitled “Simple Life Camp Songs,” a compilation of classic camp songs, with proceeds from sales going to the Children’s Miracle Network. This sounds too charitable to possibly be true! But 24/Sizzler reports that Paris’ involvement doesn’t really go beyond the use of her name on the project. Still, it’s a start – right? Eh – it’s probably the last nice thing we see Paris do.

P*ssed Off Britney Cuts Mom from Will


Each new day brings a new batch of cringe-worthy stories from the tumultuous world of Britney Spears. Today’s tidbit is that the starlet has reportedly changed her will, ensuring that if Britney dies, her mom Lynne will not gain custody of her two sons. That honor, as well as her entire estate, is now left to her little sister Jamie-Lynn, 15.

Britney must be feeling good about her big decision because she hit the town in a new Amy Winehouse inspired hairdo. Pics show her out with a hunky dude, but sadly he’s just her bodyguard. Never fear – Britney does have a boyfriend, he’s just currently on bed rest recovering from bowel surgery. He sounds super hot already! Luckily he’s still able to talk to The National Inquirer. Real estate investor John Sundahl claims he’s Brit’s new flame, and tells the rag, “When I was in the hospital, she sat with me and held my hand all night
long. She even sang and hummed to me while I was practically

The only thing more romantic than getting a bedside lullaby after bowel surgery is dishing about it after to a tabloid. Smooth move, man! That’ll win her over for sure.

Nicole: Knocked Up, Engaged and Alone


Us Weekly
has put Nicole Richie on their latest cover, announcing "Yes, She’s Pregnant!" Until we hear it from her hungry lips, we can’t totally believe this rumor is fact. But the mag isn’t alone in its assertions. A spy spotted the bony lady and boyfriend Joel Madden browsing wedding gowns at an LA boutique. E Online also reports that they hit up luxe baby shop Petit Trésor to buy a white blanket. Because if she’s 12 weeks pregnant, her baby will need a blankie in 5 months. Planning that far ahead makes complete sense!

The Simple Life star is also reportedly afraid of going through her pregnancy alone, which is set to happen when her rocker beau (or should we say "future husband?") heads out on the road next for publicity interviews and an August tour with Justin Timberlake. A source tells 24/Sizzler, "She’s really dreading the time away from him, but she’s hoping to get
some sympathy by being portrayed as the ‘pregnant victim,’ while her
man is away. The whole thing is classic Nicole." Or classically crazy! Anything to get the public to like you after driving the wrong way down the freeway high on prescription drugs.

You Respond, We Respond


Bullhornclipart6Every Friday, we run down a few of the comments this blog has received in the past week. This gives us a chance to respond and that’s what the VH1 Blog is all about: leaving no keen insight behind. That’s how much we love you.

From Diddy’ll Be Missing His Girlfriend, Kate & Pete Part 27:


We say: Gloria, he already has a disease. Like you pointed out, he has twins. Twins!

From Thursday: Beyonce Browses Barefoot…:

Miss. Dezz Says: "Why the hell is Beyonce shopping barefoot a damn story! People are dying, poverty is at an all time high, and people are living without healthcare in America wheres the news on that. Crazy a## media.. for all that bull they should ban freedom of the press!"

We say: There is nothing more important than Beyoncé shopping barefoot. Don’t you see what this means for the rights of women and pinky toes everywhere? This moment is so much bigger than her!

From Nicole: Bun in the Oven is For Real?:

Shawn Says: "I’m still wondering why Natural Selection hasn’t deselected her yet…."

We say: Probably because when you have as much money as Nicole Richie, you can pay off anyone. Even Darwin.

Also from Nicole: Bun in the Oven is For Real?:

Lidia Ricci Says: "I don’t know what my thoughts are on this, it’s not conformed yet whether she is or isn’t pregnant. I just don’t know. Maybe she’ll be a good mom, maybe not. I don’t know."

We say: Lidia, you sound so indecisive. It seems like you’re somewhere between the chocolate-or-rainbow sprinkles and Brown-or-Cornell levels of indecision. Sounds major. I’m kind of worried about you. I hope you were sitting down when you typed that. Uh, Lidia? Lidia?!? LIDIA?!?!?!!

From Lily Lashes Out at Paris and Lindsay:


We say: I know, right? No one ever says anything about those two especially on this here Internet. Finally!

From The Celebreality Interview – Saaphyri:

Americas Hottist Bith Says: "To be onnist i dont think saaphyris poor a** deserved the money shr used that poor a** story to win the money is anything shay should have sent her home and tryed to win the money her self saaphyri looked dirty any ways every time it was elemination she would come to the carpet with those white grandma shose and those pittiful white neehise and she stayed trying to tell people what to do like Leilen she always telling her what to do and that nappy a** red and bloond weave was nappy as hell she looked like a drag QUEEN BEEYATCH………………………………."

We say: To quote Flav: Wooooooow. Onnistly. Woooooooow.

Paris: Her Inspirational Words Rock


A Process A Gift and A Journey

Check out this hilarious new music video on Funny or Die for the song " A Process A Gift and A Journey." It’s a rockin’ jam created out of Paris Hilton‘s jail-inspired writing, which she shared with America on Larry King Live. Her words are so powerful, you won’t know whether to head bang or shed a tear. Who knew the heiress was such an amazing lyricist? [TMZ]

Avril: Been Caught Stealing?


Avril_2You’re officially having a bad month when there are two people who say you smoked ‘em for songwriting credits. That’s what’s happening with Avril Lavigne these days. Dudes from the 70s power-pop outfit the Rubinoos are suing the sk8ter grrl, saying her "Girlfriend" is a bit too close to their "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend." (Listen and decide.) This comes on the heels of singer Chantal Kreviazuk claiming that Lady Lavigne, the self-proclaimed "motherf*cking princess," ripped off one of her song ideas, too. Play nice, A, play nice.

Eva and Tony Go Wedding Crazy in Paris


The Desperate Housewives star and her b-balling boy toy (pictured right, in Paris last night) have been tearing up France this week, with a slew of festivities leading up to their "fairytale wedding" tomorrow. Let’s break down their wedding celebration so far and figure out what shot these two REALLY have at staying together for the long term.

  • The pair got engaged in November after splitting briefly two months prior. Breaking up is already in their blood!
  • Tony Parker is only 24, and 31-year old Eva has been married once before. She’s said she’ll be with the young Spurs star "forever," but didn’t she also probably say that about her soap star ex?

The World Series of Pop Culture Returns


Can you name 10 of the $100-million-plus grossing movies to star Tom Hanks? (Hint: Forget about Joe vs. the Volcano.) Do you lie awake nights reviewing the lyrics to Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire”? Are you obsessed with all of Madonna’s former flings — including the one she had with JFK Jr.? If so you’ll thrill to the second season of VH1 and Entertainment Weekly‘s World Series of Pop Culture, the on-air tournament competition that separates the nerds from the know-it-alls. The first episode of the new season airs this Sunday at 11 p.m. Before then, you can get all the skinny on the show at www.worldofpop.com. And you can prep by playing VH1′s World Series of Pop Culture trivia game, which is harder than you’d think, frankly, and actually makes us shout insults at our computer screens. But we’re sore losers. Are you?

Resident Film Critic: Mandy Moore


Mandy Mandy Moore is no stranger to romantic comedies. With about a dozen of them under her belt, the adorable pop star seems custom-built for the leading lady role — self-effacing, buckets of charisma and charm to spare. Having worked with the patron saints of the genre (like Hugh Grant in American Dreamz and Diana Keaton in Because I Said So), Moore’s a convert to the canon as well — "I’m the biggest fan of romantic comedies," she says. In her latest License to Wed, she plays Meg Ryan to John Krasinski’s Tom Hanks. She sat down with us to tell us a few of her favorites.

Notting Hill: "I’m just a huge Hugh Grant fan. He’s the quintessential romantic comedy leading man. I’d love to work with him again."

You’ve Got Mail: "I know that’s a random choice, and most people would say Sleepless in Seattle, but You’ve Got Mail is really sweet. I love Tom Hanks, and I love Meg Ryan. The two of them together and their chemistry — it’s just such a cute, modern idea of romance and emailing."

Annie Hall:
"It’s the best romantic comedy ever made. I saw it for the first time recently, like two years ago. It’s a miracle."

Something’s Gotta Give
: "I’m the biggest Diane [Keaton] fan. She’s incredible, in her quirky self-deprecating way, and she’s so beautiful, and that movie was hilarious and heart-warming. She’s the best. It doesn’t get any better."
