Kenny Makes Three



The Kanye West and 50 Cent album-release rivalry has taken a twangy turn: country music’s Kenny Chesney is also set to release an album on Sept. 11. Arrggh! No really: arrggh — the name of Kenny’s disc is Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates. Anyway, Kenny’s following the suit of his release-date counterparts by talking some smack. It’s in his genteel manner, but still: smack. Says Kenny:

It’s funny how with every record that comes out, we’re aware of the urban [competition], and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist. Until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200.

Awww. Poor maligned and forgotten country-music superstar. So this is why every cowboy sings his sad, sad song! Anyway, another crap-talker in the pot is another crap-talker I’m not rooting for. Ani DiFranco for the win! [Entertainment Weekly / Images: Getty]

Michael Vick Pleads Guilty, Headed to Jail



Sometimes, famous people aren’t above the law. Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michal Vick has decided to plead guilty to charges of dogfighting, after his co-defendants in the case accepted plea bargains and evidence against the quick-footed star continued to mount. His attorney read a statement on behalf of the player that stated:

“Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter.”

You mean like the numerous dogs that were murdered at Vick’s “kennel” for being crappy fighters? I’m sure they accept the apology! Vick faces a $250,000 fine and up to five years in prison, though he will probably be sentenced with less. It’s kinda of funny that Vick and his pals chose to name their operation “Bad Newz Kennels,” ‘cuz now that’s all their getting. Karma sure is a bitch – and yes, we’re talking about a female dog.

Method Man to Educate Kids About Weed


methodman082007.jpgRapper Method Man - whose name is synonymous with all things marijuana – is going to be speaking out on his favorite topic. No big surpise, seeing as the Wu-Tang Clan member has rapped about weed, made movies about getting high, and named an album in honor of days associated with the drug. But after being arrested in May for possession of marijuana – obviously – the rapper will be preaching about the evils of getting high to an audience of fifteen New York City teens as part of his plea bargain.

Method Man – whose name even references a slang term for his fave drug – is apparently “thrilled” to do his part for the community. What we wouldn’t give to be a joint in his pocket fly on the wall for that learning session. [TMZ. Image: Getty]

The Donald Thinks He Can Change Paris and Britney


donald0820071.jpgDonald Trump knows the secret to getting people to do what he wants – insulting the s**t out of them. At least that’s what he did recently to Paris, Britney and Lindsay, so we’ll have to wait and see if his plan works. The millionaire claims that he is in negotiations with Britney to appear on Celebrity Apprentice and that Paris Hilton also “wants to be on” the show. He says, “We’re negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it? We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she’d be great.”

Damn! Strong words there, DT. The combover king also has a thing for Lindsay Lohan and is in the process of sweet talking her into appearing on the show. He says of the rehabbing actress: “Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them.”

And if there’s anyone who knows positive, it’s the Donald! Just look at the language he uses. Hopefully he’ll fix his hairdo before this new version of the Apprentice airs. After all, it’s a f***ing mess too. [NY Post. image: Getty]

Mos Def and Jack Black Remake Ghostbusters


In what is clearly 10 pounds of funny crammed into a 2-pound bag, the trailer for Michel Gondry’s new film, Be Kind Rewind, hit the Interweb. You might remember Gondry from such videos as the one for “Fell in Love With a Girl” by the White Stripes and such movies as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Whatever, we say. The reason to watch this is for Jack Black and Mos Def’s retooled version of Ghostbusters. As people, we would almost always rather be watching Ghostbusters than doing whatever it is that we’re actually doing, and it’s nice to see that others have the same yen for Dr. Peter Venkman.

K-Fed Celebrates Subpoenas in Vegas


082007.jpgMr. Mom Kevin Federline continued covering Hollywood in legal papers this weekend, serving Promises Treatment Center – Brit’s rehab home in Malibu – with a subpoena. I kinda want to see him serve Britney’s new “man” Criss Angel some legal papers, just to see the magician try to make then disappear. This brings the total K-Fed subpoena count up to four (including assistants Shannon Funk and Alli Sims and bodyguard Daimon Shippen), which gave the guy something to celebrate in Vegas this weekend, where he macked ladies and danced like the tool awesome dad that he is. Meanwhile Brit’s attempting to get back at K-Fed, but apparently her lawyer, Lauren Wasser, wants nothing to do with the pop star and is trying to hand her off to another legal adviser. Anyone else see a trend here? [Image: Getty]
