Blue-eyed soul crooner Robin Thicke is finally coming into his own. So no wonder he’s got some big-time options. Dude’s writing a score for the forthcoming movie This Wednesday, and he’s got to make it truly evocative. His wife, Paula Patton, in part of the cast, playing a pimp who works the streets of Hot ‘Lanta. That’s a little different than the role his dad, Alan Thicke, played on Growing Pains.
- Keanu Reeves accidentally sideswipes a paparazzo with his Porsche. We control these machines; they don’t control us, eh, Neo? [Dlisted]
- Kim Kardashian seems to be moving from one b-list R&B singer (Ray J) to another (Marques Houston). Pretty Rickey, you’re on deck! [Crunk & Disorderly]
- Pop culture has seemed so dry without Lindsay Lohan‘s exposed lady bits. Thank god they’re back! [Egotastic!]
- Justin Timberlake curses a lot in a Details cover story. This is because he’s a thug. [Just Jared]

Some advice from Chance:
Seriously, dude. Practice what you preach.
In the modern rap game, you’re only as good as the company you keep. So given T.I.’s studio posse, the Southern rapper is hotter than a sweltering July day in downtown ATL.
According to T.I., his upcoming album T.I. vs. T.I.P. (scheduled for a July release) will have the following "features" on it: Eminem, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Scott Storch, Mannie Fresh, Wyclef Jean, Nelly, Lil Wayne, R. Kelly, Ciara, Akon, and Just Blaze, among others. (Whew. Only thing that could make that list more impressive is getting a bald Britney to raise Tupac and Biggie from the dead.)
One person who isn’t likely to visit him in the studio, however, is T.I.’s ex-girlfriend/fiancé Tameka "Tiny" Cottle (left). The two recently announced their amicable split, even though Cottle is due to give birth to T.I.’s fifth child (second with Cottle) in July.
"I Love New York" is down to two: Real was sent packing, leaving Chance and Tango to battle it out mano y mano. Check this page again soon for our full episode 9 recap. In the meantime, watch extras that weren’t shown on TV and send shout-outs/advice to New York, Chance and Tango — and condolences to Real.
New York wept big time when she let Real go in Episode 9. Now, she has to decide between Chance (fun and playful but unpredictable and thuggish) and Tango (suave and chill but whiney). Who should New York pick, and why?
He’s been accused by New York of being a slow Floridian and by blog readers of being a crybaby. But New York seems to be feelin’ those love letters that he leaves at her door. What does Tango need to do to win it all? Comment below.
Chance displayed his sensitive side in Episode 9, crying like a baby when New York sent his brother Real packing. But it didn’t take long for the bad boy to rebound: "Does Tango have something to worry about?" he asked. "Man, when the tears start flowin’, blood starts shedding." What does Chance need to do to win it all? Comment below.
Real was devastated when he got the axe in Episode 9. "I ain’t cried like that since I was a baby," he said. Could Real have done any better? Did he have a chance to win New York’s heart? Send him your thoughts.
Lindsay Lohan reportedly caught up with former flame Wilmer Valderrama at a karaoke party Sunday, but the results were nothing to sing about. Wilmer approached Lindsay, only to get the cold shoulder. He then took the stage and launched into Matchbox Twenty‘s "Back 2 Good," which he dedicated to Linds (the song contains the lines, "I was thinking if you were lonely / Maybe we could leave here and no one would know … I’m lonely now and I don’t know how to get it back to good." "It’s too late!" could be heard shouted from Lindsay’s entourage after Wilmer finished. And seriously: what a weenie. Were Barbara Streisand’s "The Way We Were" and Bryan Adams’ "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)" unavailable? He should have just gotten revenge after being brushed off by singing Amy Winehouse‘s "Rehab." [New York Daily News]
