First Look: Bon Jovi’s “We Weren’t Born To Follow”

by

Bon Jovi have been cranking out catchy melodies for 26 years, so it’s no surprise the band is a VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown favorite. With their brand-new single “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” the New Jersey rockers show they haven’t lost their knack for writing a radio-friendly song with hit potential — even when that song has political overtones. But how does the video for this new single stack up against the rest of the Top 20 competition? Watch above and then vote here. Note to ladies: Jon Bon Jovi should not get extra points for his all-American good looks.

Hip Hop Honors Interview: Chuck D And Boots Riley (Part 2)

by

All this week, we brought you behind-the-scenes interviews recorded during the rehearsals for this year’s Hip Hop Honors (the show taped a few weeks ago, but will premiere on air Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 9/8c). For our last clip, we end where we started, continuing our chat with Public Enemy frontman Chuck D and Boots Riley of the Coup and Street Sweeper Social Club. The politically minded rappers talk at length about the depoliticized state of hip-hop in ’09. It’s about as revealing as political discourse over booming music, on a theater balcony, can be.

by

“Life is not about bitching at people,” says Classy, summarizing what made her different from her fellow Real Chance of Love 2 contestants, as well as why she was accused of being boring. Below, Classy hits back at those claims, and she also talks about being called “ashy,” what she really thinks of Real, and how taking sexy pictures doesn’t diminish your level of class. And she does it all eloquently. It’s kind of great, actually.

T-Weed Is A Fraud, Say Many

by

 

In this clip from the New York CW affiliate WPIX, four different people accuse I Love New York/I Love Money contestant Kevin “T-Weed” Watson of decieving them in various ways (for example, two people say he stole $1,300 from him, while another woman says he hired her to appear in an ad for Ed Hardy vodka, then when it came time to shoot it, informed her she had to be nude — an Ed Hardy rep says the company has no affiliation with T-Weed). It bears repeating that T-Weed claimed to be worth $100 million on I Love New York, only to be seemingly disproved upon elimination, and that castmate Onix referred to him as a “snake-oil salesman.” We reached out to T-Weed for a comment, but haven’t heard back. We’ll let you know how that goes. [Thanks for the tip, Darren.]

New update: T-Weed sent us an email with the subject, “my statement is no comment is no comment,” and then in the body: “no comment.” You guys got that?

For The Love Of Ray J 2 – Meet The Ladies!

The second season of For the Love of Ray J is set to hit VH1 on Monday, Nov. 2 at 9/8c. In the meantime, check out some more details below, including up-close pictures of the 19 ladies set to vie for Ray’s heart…

World famous R&B superstar Ray J is back for another season of For the Love of Ray J. Last season Ray brought 14 beautiful women to his home to see if he could find love — and he thought he did. After going through challenges, dates and eliminations Cocktail won Ray J’s heart and the two of them hoped things would work out, but it wasn’t meant to be. Ray picked the best girl in the house, but unfortunately it wasn’t the best girl for him. Just because things didn’t work out with Cocktail doesn’t mean Ray didn’t have blast. The whole experience was crazy…so he can’t wait to do it again. Ray wants to give love a second chance, so he hit up VH1 and told them he wanted to do it just like last time, but better. And this time he really wants to find the girl for him. Ray will bring 19 of the finest girls from around the country to his mansion in the Hollywood Hills and put them through challenges, dates and eliminations to find the ladies that are smart, funny and beautiful enough to survive the cut. Having these girls with him however will not slow down his lifestyle; he’ll continue living the young Hollywood dream but do it while bringing these girls along for the ride. He’ll introduce them to some of hottest spots in LA, his celebrity friends and family, and take them places only celebrities have access to. Join us on our journey as 19 of the sexiest women from across the country try to tame the ultimate ladies man, Ray J.

Did Flirty Vindicate Blonde Baller?

by

In this bonus scene from this week’s Real Chance of Love 2, we’re treated to more of Flirty’s exit interview. And what a treat it is! It features the implication that Chance is packing light, the admission that she was pretending to like him and the revelation that she may have been more into Real. “He touched me once and it was like, whoo! [Bleeped] in my pants. Damn it, I got stuck with Chance, the rude ignorant one,” is how she puts it. If this is so, maybe there was something to Blonde Baller’s supposed snitching on Flirty’s flip-flopping potential. Or maybe Flirty’s just drunk on sour grapes. Really, could go either way.
