Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” Video (30-Second Sneak Peek)

by (@unclegrambo)

Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” is, without a doubt, the song of the summer of 2010. Not only has it been perched near the top of the Billboard charts since June, it’s also still sitting high atop our weekly Top 20 Video Countdown. That said, there’s only a few weeks left until the release of her new LP, Teenage Dream, and the best way to get fans excited to go out and purchase the new album is to release another catchy single and another sexy video. As you’ll see, the future Mrs. Russell Brand really delivers on both fronts; the Max Martin produced song has one of the year’s most bangin’ choruses (right up there with Ke$ha’s “Your Love Is My Drug”) and, well, Perry has never looked better than she does in this video. You’ll have to wait until next week to see the whole thing, but hopefully this snippet will tide you over until then.

Chad Ochocinco S’es His H Over Teen Choice “Snub”

by

ocho_tweet

Earlier today, Chad Ochocinco tweeted this message of poor sportsmanship (if you consider making reality TV a sport, which you might as well). However, because this year’s Teen Choice Award nominations were announced June 14 (weeks before Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch hit the air), his show was obviously not eligible (who does he think he is, Salt?). And also, it’s not really a teen-skewing show, anyway. Know thy demo, Chad.

Rehab Roundup

by

rehab4_ericrachel

E! Online caught up with Eric Roberts fresh out of Celebrity Rehab 4 (it wrapped filming earlier this week) at the Hollywood premiere of The Expendables (a film he appears in). Roberts was experiencing something he hadn’t before: red-carpet sobriety. “I have never walked down a red carpet without being stoned in my life until tonight,” he reported. And, as everyone knows, the red carpet is exactly the place where you measure progress in Hollywood.

Meanwhile, don’t expect to hear Rachel Uchitel spilling (more of) the beans on her high-profile affair with Tiger Woods during the show. TMZ reports that mentioning him publicly is off-limits, per her $10 million settlement with the star golfer.

Finally, as they have throughout the filming (presumably via internal sources), Radar has posted spoilers of sorts regarding the show’s graduation ceremony. Included in their write-up are some Rehabbers’ plans for continuing care, though it’s not yet known if that pertains to another, as-yet-unannounced season of Sober House. Recounting this and all other Radar information on the turf of the network that hasn’t even gotten to air the show yet hasn’t seemed appropriate, and that’s why we held off. But who are we to keep you from reading it? [E! Online, TMZ, Radar]

Phillip Got Soul!

by

If you haven’t noticed, we love Money Hungry‘s Phillip. In the bonus clip above the self-described “big, black Chicago south side hip-hop dancer” is out to prove that just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t get down. “Don’t get it twisted,” he warns. “Just ’cause you’re big, you can move it to. You can wiggle it, you can drop it, you can pop it, you can lock it. You could bend it over and you could stop it.” And then he proves it. This is show-and-tell at its most room-shaking.

Gloria Govan And Matt Barnes Split?

by

bball_4_1lb_6

Yesterday, Necole Bitchie posted what seemed like an unsubstantiated report suggesting Basketball WivesGloria Govan and her fiancĂ©, Matt Barnes, had called off their wedding (planned for later this month). No sources were named and the anonymous ones cited — groomsmen — supposedly received the news via text. That info is far removed from its alleged first-hand source, but developments today suggest there may be some truth to it. We reached out to Gloria for a comment and have so far heard nothing, and Matt has remained uncharacteristically mum on his Twitter (Necole Bitchie quotes him as requesting that the media “Please respect my privacy,” but the source of that quote is, again, unclear).

Gloria told us in June that if she does appear in the second season of Basketball Wives, “it will be for the wedding which is max one or two episodes.” She had announced that her wedding date would be August 21, but could it be that we have to wait till the show returns in the fall to air to find out exactly what’s going on?

Ochocinco‘s Tara Gets High-Brow Praise

by

ocho_4_b7k_32

“She’s spinoff-worthy. She may be sitcom-worthy,” wrote New York Times writer Jon Caramanica for the Los Angeles Times this week regarding Ochocino: The Ultimate Catch‘s resident smart-ass Tara. Comparing her to Megan Hauserman (as a compliment!), Caramanica rhapsodizes the woman that he considers the “breakout” in a group of “meandering, often dull set of characters”:

“She’s mastered the way certain people have of speaking with celebrities to make them feel comfortable, a sort of overconfident obsequiousness. She addresses Ochocinco by his first name in an authoritative way. She’s committed to eye contact.

Plus, she’s eager to rib. She teased Ochocinco about her being white and him being black. ‘Baby like chocolate?’ he asked. She assured him Baby did. Then he asked what her mother would think if she brought him home. She replied, ‘Is he black? Is he robbing the place?’ Potentially touchy, but she pulled it off without malice. (In the premiere, she toyed with the preternaturally dull Terrell Owens, another football player and VH1 reality star, who was helping Ochocinco make his decisions. When he asked whether her parents would mind her dating a black man, she replied straight-faced, ‘My parents are black. I’m adopted.’)”

These kind of odes to reality stars are not common, let alone for a paper as respected as the Los Angeles Times. It may be premature to say that Tara has arrived (we can reexamine after a spin-off or two), but it’s safe to say that she’s well on her way. [Los Angeles Times]
