T.I. versus…Ludacris?



Beef was on the menu of a brunch in Los Angeles on Sunday, where a scuffle broke out between T.I. and Ludacris‘ Disturbing tha Peace Records partner Chaka Zulu aka the man whose name you are most jealous of. Seriously, who wouldn’t want the melodious lungs of Chaka Khan coupled with the warrior spirit of Shaka Zulu? Chaka Zulu may be the closest we’ve come yet to a perfect human being and I say that solely on basis of his name.

Anyway, details are scant but T.I. is said to have punched the face of Chaka, the partner of Luda, his on-again, off-again rival at the Power Brunch event hosted by Warner Music Group EVP Kevin Liles. An entourage-wide scuffle is said to have then broken out, only to be broken up by the police minutes later. In the end, one woman was injured and, according to a witness, T.I.’s shirt was torn. And the whole place swooned!

I dedicate two anti-violence tracks from hip-hop’s golden era to T.I., West Coast All Stars’ "We’re All in the Same Gang" and the Stop the Violence Movement’s "Self Destruction." T.I., your permanently fastened sunglasses don’t fool me: you need some cooling out.

Learn from your elders, T.I. [People / Images: Getty]

Brit Accuses Mom of Pain Pill Addiction


Britney seems to be headed back toward another meltdown, and it’s not just because those whack extensions are hurting her head. Rumors that the pop star is attempting to obtain a restraining order against her mom are getting louder. X17 is reporting that she is P*SSED about her mom’s visits with her two grandkids at K-Feds house, and wants to use the restraining order to keep Grandma Spears away from Sean and Jayden. Her ammo? Britney’s allegedly accusing her mom of abusing prescription pain meds. Like mother, like daughter, apparently!

Check out Brit’s bizarre message to her mom, after the jump!

Flavor Flav to Pay-vor Pay?



Celebreality god Flavor Flav has been ordered to pay $1.8 million to a former neighbor he allegedly shot in 1993. That was back in Flav’s pre-Flavor of Love days, when he roamed with dodo birds and drove his American steamer to the talkies, where he’d watch with a middle-aged Mr. Burns. It was so long ago, actually, that it’s not really clear whether Flav (allegedly, supposedly, maybe) shot the neighbor or stabbed him with the bayonet attached to his musket.

Flav’s lawyer is set to appeal the case due to beef he has with the judge (she’s the wife of the DA who unsuccessfully tried to jail Flav over the supposed, alleged, possible shooting in the ’90s). Still can you imagine Flav’s reaction when he heard how much the judge expected him to fork over? It probably went something like: "Woooooooooooooooooooooooow." [New York Post / Image credit: Getty]

Barbara Too Good for Paris Interview


Paris has supposedly morphed into a new woman thanks to her stint behind bars, but she sounds just as greedy as she’s always been! Last week, it was reported that NBC had allegedly snatched the coveted post-jail interview with the heiress away from ABC with a offer of $1 million, burning Hilton family pal Barbara Walters, who originally wanted to do the story.

But over the weekend, NBC pulled out of the interview and the Hiltons attempted to get back on Barbara’s good side, with Paris herself even calling The View host at 2AM to personally ask her to do the interview. Walters wasn’t havin’ it, and Paris is now appearing on CNN’s Larry King Live on Wednesday night. Still, it looks like Barbara’s not pleased with the way things went down, and no one messes with the Queen of Chat and gets away with it! Here’s what she told the NY Post:

"Look, I’ve done prison interviews before, but people like the Menendez
Brothers were really important news stories. This wasn’t. And even though I’d already written my
questions, when all that pay-for-play stuff happened, I suddenly felt
this was not up to my standard. It . . . felt . . . sort of . . .Tawdry. The whole thing somehow was beneath me."

Barbara: 1, Jailbird: 0!

Shia La…Beef?


Shia_beef Shia LaBeouf wants you to know that he’s better than most of those in the snortin’, smokin’, fornicatin’, nip-and-lip slippin’ world of young Hollywood. The way he tells you this is by detailing his work ethic in a recent Entertainment Weekly interview and calling out wild-child Lindsay Lohan as a counterpoint to his point. Oh no he din’t! Oh yes he did:

"Someone like Lindsay Lohan’s personality is [more] famous than her performance. You’ve got to maintain some mystery…Part of me wants to go out and see my peers. But if I go to a club and get my picture in the press, then I am that young Hollywood a******. That would shatter my world…There’s no way you get Tom Hanks‘ career without thinking about this stuff."

Maybe the reason he isn’t doing drugs is because there’s no room in his mouth, what with his foot taking up so much space. The countdown to Shia’s crack-out begins here — these words are jonesin’ to come back to haunt him. Also, way to kick Lindsay while she’s down and rehabbing, Shia. What do you think you are? A blogger? [EW / Image credit: Getty]

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 Britney: Keeping Mom Away From Kids?:


We say: Just so you know, we aren’t Britney Spears. But if we were, we would definitely be just moving our eyes across the monitor while someone else read your message and then moving our fingers across the keyboard, while someone else typed for us. It’s not enough to just lip-synch anymore — you have to eye-synch and finger-synch, too.

From The Cult of Clay Aiken:

Leanne Says: "So gay he’s walking around in a coat of flames. No one would mind dude! Just come out already!"

We say: We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. But also we wouldn’t have said it better ourselves — we’re scared of the wrath of Claymates. It’s kind of like the wrath of Khan except all the outfits are from Wal-Mart, not outer space.

From Celebrity Fit Club: Men Vs. Women Recap – Episode 8 – Fit To Say Bye:

dkjfvhkajbvkdjbvlkdfjbvlkdfbv Says: "i dont like you dustin at all!!!!!!!!!im suprised yall havent killed him yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

We say: dkjfvhkajbvkdjbvlkdfjbvlkdfbv, you just gave us the best idea for a spin-off: Celebrity Hit Club. James Gandolfini isn’t doing anything these days, right?

From Paris Writes Fans, Gabs for Bucks & Kills Her Cat:

Ozcan Says: "See, that just makes me really mad (I was going to phrase it like the girls from Charm School). The Today show is giving her $1 million dollars, and it just makes me angry that we have other stuff in this world that need that money, like RESEARCH FOR AIDS AND BREAST CANCER."

We say: We’re bummed that you didn’t go for it and write your comment in Charm School-speak, Ozcan. Here, we’ll do it for you: "See, that just makes my ass really mad-ass (my ass was going to phrase it like those asses from Charm School). The Today-ass show is giving her $1 million-ass
dollars, and it just makes my ass angry that we have other-ass stuff in this-ass
world that need that money, like RESEARCH FOR AIDS AND BREAST AND ASS CANCER."

From The Fantasy Interview – Larissa:

Diamond Says: "yal need to stop hatin on bootz/larissa cuz she prettier than all of you bitches and bitches yall need to get ur facts straight she aint near fake hoe so yall need to get yall s*** straight if yall gon try to dog somebody on the internet and yes this to all yall jealous bitches that is hatin on her and Ms. Larissa I don’t give no f*** what Mo said you don’t act like a child bitch she is jus hatin jus like tha rest of them hatin hoes…"

We say: Ass.

Lindsay: Lo-Lamb (of God)


Lindsay Lohan‘s rarely lucid father Michael has revealed that part of Lindsay’s rehabilitation has involved finding God. "Lindsay has found this righteous path because she’s going to church and that’s a good sign," he recently told The Insider. Is that incense or the smell of wishful thinking in the air? And really, the idea of a pious Lindsay is a hell of a lot more frightening than a hedonistic Lindsay. How will it be possible for her to reconcile her firecrotch with her faith?

Though maybe the religious turn provides a decent excuse for her choice to play rehab hooky and enjoy a day at the beach. She’s just taking in God’s green earth, right? [Us]
