Ludacris' Birthday Bash!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


While several celebrities threw parties in celebration of Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, Ludacris had another reason to celebrate this weekend — his upcoming 30th birthday.

The Atlanta rapper held an hours-long birthday bash at the Rio hotel on Friday night, one of several star-studded celebrations that have overtaken the Las Vegas strip since Thursday.

If you missed the gigantic billboards trumpeting the arrival of MTV Video Music Awards, there were plenty of other signals to let you know the celebrities had landed: The casino at the Palms hotel, where the awards will be held, was overflowing with bright lights and setups for cameras; elsewhere, luxury gifting suites were set up at various hotels for stars to grab a gaggle of free stuff.

At Caesar's Palace, the Style Villa had LeSportsac bags, Guess products, skin care items and plenty of swag and free drinks set out for the taking, but on Friday early afternoon, few celebrities had sauntered through — many hadn't arrived into town.

But by the evening, things picked up on the celebrity scene, starting with Ludacris' birthday party. Though it was a sit-down dinner, it hardly had a formal feel as music blasted throughout the night and video screens played some of his favorite movies, including "Scarface," "Friday" and his own Oscar-winning flick, "Crash."

Music legend Quincy Jones and actress Gabrielle Union were among those in giving the rapper birthday hugs; actress Tichina Arnold from "Everybody Hates Chris" gave Ludacris a special serenade of what she called the "black Happy Birthday" song, a more soulful twist on the original.

Elsewhere, Snoop Dogg held court at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, performing for fans as part of Rolling Stone's 40th anniversary bash.

The party scene was expected to ratchet up on Saturday evening with a bevy of events, including separate celebrations hosted by 50 Cent and Kanye West.

McCanns don't make themselves look less guilty.


McCanns reportedly leaving Portugal, returning to Britain

PORTIMAO, Portugal (CNN) -- Two days after they were officially named suspects in the disappearance of their 3-year-old daughter, Kate and Gerry McCann will be leaving Portugal for their home in Britain, according to a source close to the Portuguese police.

The McCanns would depart early Sunday from Faro Airport, the source said.

They're leaving "with the full knowledge of the Portuguese authorities and police," family spokeswoman Justine McGuiness told The Associated Press.

Earlier Saturday, family and friends of the McCanns expressed disbelief that the couple would have harmed their missing daughter, Madeleine.

Weren't these the people who claimed they wouldn't leave the country unless they had their daughter back?

I'm sure J.K., Becks, and all of the others who rallied support for these people are feeling more and more stupid by the minute.

Also, I can't wait for their book: "We Didn't Accidently Overdose Our Young Daughter So We Could Have a Night Alone During Holiday and Conceal It, but if We Did, This is How it Would Have Happened."

Duchovny's "bigger than the Beatles", according to...himself.

David's Beatles boast:
David Duchovny says he is bigger than The Beatles.




(BANG) - David Duchovny says he is bigger than The Beatles.

The actor, who achieved worldwide fame playing FBI agent Fox Mulder in hit US TV show 'The X Files', insists his achievements in the series outshine the Fab Four's career, because the programme lasted longer. Duchovny - who starred alongside Gillian Anderson in the show's nine series - remarked: "I wish we could go back to the days of 'The X Files'. But I never felt like a Beatle when I was making it. I don't think you could ever feel like a Beatle. They knew what they were doing, although maybe they didn't? They weren't together as long as we were.

"In fact, we were better than The Beatles. I mean, come on, 1962 to 1970? They couldn't even make it to a ninth year!"

David is set to be reunited with Gillian for a second 'X Files' film.

The photographer seemed to suggest Ashley and the curious queer on her right had something going on. Please the gay alarm in my ass went off in high alert when I saw his ass. Methinks he's with the slug to his right.

Vincent Gallo was also there and I almost didn't mention him, because he's not worth mentioning. He just needs to crawl into the woods and begone!

CLOONEY THREATENS TO 'MURDER' PITT OVER NEW MOVIE COVERAGE

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


Movie star GEORGE CLOONEY has threatened to 'murder' BRAD PITT if he steals the limelight in their new film BURN AFTER READING. The pair have appeared together before - most recently in 2007's Ocean's 13 - but Clooney is worried his performance will be overshadowed by that of the blonde Mr + Mrs Smith star. He says, "I'm working with him right now on this Coen brothers movie, which kills me because he's going to steal the movie and I'm going to murder him." But Clooney insists it's not just Pitt who he worries about - adding he'd love to "kick Matt Damon's ass." He explains, "It's a weird thing, but you try not to compete in art. It always seems kind of strange. I could never do the things that he (Pitt) does, ever. I do have some competition with Matt Damon - I'd like to kick his ass," Clooney smiled.

The star insists the 67-year-old crooner should quit the music business before his voice fails, and also urges at 81-year-old singing superstar Tony Bennett to "give up" their careers in the industry. She says, "I think of Tony Bennett in the same way as I do Tom Jones - both are lovely men and huge musical icons but their voices are going now, and their vibrato slowing with age. "I think they should go and live a little, spend their money and enjoy their kids and grandkids. It's time to give up."

Fiddy's Office Hotties

50 Cent's babe brag


(KP International) 50 Cent recently bragged that he has a bevy of babes working in his office.

"The G-Unit office is always full of beautiful women with hardly any clothes on," Fiddy was quoted as saying by the UK's Sun. "Time restraints make it difficult to meet someone. I got a lot going on. I want to meet a smart woman."

Part of what's keeping the rapper busy is his budding film career. The Get Rich or Die Tryin' actor scored a role opposite some of Hollywood's toughest players. "I'm starting filming [on] Righteous Kill with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino," Fiddy told Loaded magazine. "I love those guys. I've been to De Niro's house, met his wife and went to a firing range with him. He's a good shot, but I'm better."

[source]

Random observations: Oh, SO much could be said about Fiddy being a "better shot" than De Niro! He'd have to be; otherwise he'd have a helluva lot more than...what is it?...SEVEN bullets still lodged in those pecs of his?? (Am I the only one who wonders how a bullet could ever even penetrate that body??) De Niro's kinda gutsy to be hitting the firing range with that man. When did Curtis Jackson get his acting chops up to snuff enough to do a Pacino/De Niro movie, anyway?? And I don't think it's good to admit that you have to PAY half-naked women to be around you all day. Then again, at least he CAN pay for that particular luxury - more than most of us can say.

SPEARS URGED 'TO BEHAVE' AT VMAS

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
MTV bosses have pleaded with pop star BRITNEY SPEARS to "behave" at Sundays (09Sep07) Video Music Awards, according to reports. The Toxic singer confirmed an appearance at the ceremony on Thursday (06Sep07). MTV bosses announced the troubled star would make her live music comeback onstage at the event with a performance of Gimme More, the first single from her upcoming fifth album. But Spears has allegedly been warned if she fails to behave appropriately in the run-up to the VMAs, her performance will be pulled from the show. A source tells the New York Daily News, "Britney knows she's on thin ice. When they agreed to the performance, they sat her down and told her she should not be going out, and instead focus on rehearsing and resting. "She seemed to be thankful and appreciative for the chance, but who knows her? MTV made it clear her usual behaviour will not be tolerated." Despite being spotted partying in Las Vegas earlier this week (ends09Sep07), her cousin Ali Simms insists Spears is taking her VMA performance seriously. Simms says, "Her performance will be huge. She's very excited."

Nikki Grahame unable to have children



Nikki Grahame has revealed that she is unable to have children as a result of her long battle with anorexia.

The Big Brother 7 star spent much of her childhood in hospital with the eating disorder and said doctors gave her the bad news when she was 12.

She told OK! magazine: "I might adopt because I can't have children, because of all the internal damage I've done to myself with the anorexia. I found out about it a while ago and it is a shame. It's inevitable though, with anorexia.

"I'm fine on the outside but there's still internal damage. I'm on tablets and the doctors want me to take oestrogen, but it makes me put on weight and have really bad mood swings."

She added: "The thing is I remember when I was 12 the doctor telling me... I wouldn't be able to have children. But back then I was like, 'Yeah, yeah, whatever'. Looking back, I really wish I'd listened to her."

America Ferrera Reveals Her Ugliest Audition

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She may have scooped a Golden Globe and is currently facing a major Emmy nomination for her role as the lovable "Ugly Betty," but America Ferrera wasn't always the confident young starlet she is today.

After a friend of the actresses wrote, what she called a "beautiful, beautiful script," Ferrera decided she would go after the leading lady role in the film. She learned however that her features, weren't the kind the producers were going for, and during Newsweek's annual Emmy panel, Ferrera revealed the extreme lengths she went to " including using heavy makeup to disguise her skin color, to try and get the role.

"For a while, [getting the role] was a possibility and then it was, like, 'Well, listen, the producers don't want " they're looking for someone who's blond and who has, you know, lighter skin.' And basically that was it. I didn't even get to fail on my own. It was the first time I felt really angry. And so I went out and bleached my hair! I was 17, and it was the first time I'd done something out of anger. I bleached my hair and put on lily-white powder makeup-whiteface, I guess."

Ferrera revealed a friend helped her realize what she was doing.

"My friend called me up and was, like, 'I get it, I understand that it's warped and twisted and it sucks. But you still don't have the part.'"

Kanye West Doesn't Care About Britney Spears

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Scores of bikini-clad babes and bare-chested hunks downing drinks by the pool. Gift suites overflowing with swag, from diamonds and designer jeans to fancy shades and hotel stays. Concerts by Kanye West, 50 Cent, Maroon 5 and Joss Stone for crowds that included Jamie Foxx, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Paris Hilton and Ashlee Simpson.

With the MTV Video Music Awards in town, Sin City took its debauchery and extravagance to a whole new level. The awards, featuring a much-hyped opening number by Britney Spears, are set to air live Sunday from the Palms hotel.

The unpredictable pop star was the talk of the weekend. People bragged about Britney sightings, buzzed about what events she would attend and offered opinions on her chances for a comeback.

Security guards, hotel workers, fans and photographers clamored and jockeyed for position at the mere rumor that Spears would show up at the Venetian hotel's gifting suite on Saturday. She never showed. But she did stop by the Palms to rehearse her show-opening routine for her new single, "Gimmie More."

Still, gift suites — including the Star Lounge at Hard Rock Hotel and the Style Villa at Caesars Palace — were hot destinations Saturday. Eve played X-Box and West kicked back in a poolside cabana at the Venetian. Ludacris and Nelly collected goodies at the Hard Rock. And 50 Cent picked up a $62,000 diamond-encrusted watch at Caesars. Other swag-collecting stars included Jennifer Hudson, Nelly, Lauren Conrad and Lil Jon.

The focus turned from freebies to parties once the sun went down. Christina Aguilera made an appearance at nightclub LAX, Pharrell Williams held a dinner soiree at the Venetian and Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke performed at the House of Blues. Maxim's bash at Mandalay Bay, which featured an hourlong set by Stone, drew rapper Chamillionaire and "Entourage" stars Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly.

The Hard Rock Hotel was packed to capacity as it hosted concerts by West, 50 Cent and Linkin Park. Hilton, Ciara and Mario Lopez took in 50's poolside show. Spears and Combs dropped by his afterparty before leaving together for nightclub Tao.

Simpson brought two dates to see West perform at Rolling Stone's 40th anniversary party — her dad, Joe Simpson, and her boyfriend, Pete Wentz. Eve and Jermaine Dupree were also on hand to see the set, during which Foxx and rapper T-Pain joined West on stage.

The ever-outspoken West had some less-than-kind words for Spears and MTV.

"I can't believe she would perform. She hasn't had a hit record in years," he said, apparently miffed that MTV didn't invite him to open the show. "Maybe my money's not right. Maybe my skin's not right."

But producers who worked with Spears on her new album seemed confident she would regain her pop glory.

She will "surprise the world," said Sean Garrett, who collaborated with the singer on three new tracks.

Besides Spears, 50 Cent, Rihanna, Nelly Furtado, Lil Wayne and Lily Allen are set to perform at the Video Music Awards.

I really hope Kanye was trying to get some attention as usual, because this is far from a race thing. It's more about MTV being desperate for ratings for that shitacular awards show. Also, LOL @ Sean Garret saying she will "surprise the world". That's pretty much a given either way it goes. Besides I don't trust anyone associated with the crap that is that Nicole Scherzhoweveryouspellit "song".

Lindsay's Antics Are Nothing New, Says Friend

When OK! caught up with Lindsay Lohan's gal-pal Samantha Ronson before the VMAs in Las Vegas, the superstar DJ explained why no one should be stunned by the intoxicated antics of her good friend or Amy Winehouse. "I doubt that anybody is that much worse today than celebrities were in the past," Samantha says to OK!, referring to Hollywood's long history of substance abuse and self-destructive behavior. "I think that people could have been doing all that stuff years ago but we just didn't hear about it. Now it's just so exposed and out there. People even want to know what's under your socks when you're in the limelight."

Paris Outs Christina



Paris Hilton got on the microphone at a packed Las Vegas nightclub and lavished Christina Aguilera with praise – and in the process revealed a celebrity secret.

"Congratulations to the most beautiful pregnant woman in the world. You're gorgeous," Hilton announced at about 2 a.m. Sunday at an Aguilera-hosted party at LAX Nightclub in the Luxor.

Aguilera, who has never confirmed being pregnant despite a visible bump beneath her pink chiffon mini-dress, appeared temporarily shocked as she sat in her perch in the elevated VIP booth. She sank her head into the shoulder of husband Jordan Bratman as her friends looked stunned.

But she quickly recovered, and the two looked at each other and laughed as the crowd – which included Adrien Grenier, Melanie Brown, Criss Angel and cast members from The Hills – erupted in applause. (Aguilera's rep declined to comment).

Hilton's surprise announcement, coming after she earlier put her hand on Aguilera's stomach and the pair giggled, was the highlight of the LAX party, one of many rocking Las Vegas on the weekend of the MTV Video Music Awards.

Brad Pitt and Ang Lee get booed in Venice

Venice ends on sour note with shock film choices
Sunday September 9 7:38 AM ET


Ang Lee has walked off with another top award at the Venice film festival, and surprised critics are wondering how he did it.

"Lust, Caution" ("Se, Jie") won the Golden Lion late on Saturday, two years after the Taiwanese director scooped the big prize for gay cowboy drama "Brokeback Mountain."

In 2005 he was a popular winner. In 2007 he was not.

Reporters and critics in the press room, watching the closing ceremony beamed live on a big screen, booed when Lee's Golden Lion was announced, and again, more loudly, when Hollywood star Brad Pitt was named best actor. "In all of the pre-award speculation, nobody had thought about Ang Lee's film, not even for one of the lesser awards," Natalia Aspesi wrote in La Repubblica newspaper on Sunday.

At a post-verdict news conference, jury president Zhang Yimou offered no explanation of the panel's decision to give the Golden Lion to Lee's film.

Reviews of "Lust, Caution" were generally negative, arguing that at 156 minutes it was much too long. The slow narrative, set in World War Two Shanghai, is punctuated by explicit and sometimes violent sex which Lee hinted was real.

The Hollywood Reporter's verdict was: "Ang Lee's lugubrious spy epic ... brings to mind what soldiers say about war: that it's long periods of boredom relieved by moments of extremely heightened excitement."

The decision meant that a festival broadly praised for its film selection and organization ended on a slightly sour note.

Although no strong favorite emerged from the 23 films in competition in Venice, critics agreed Tunisian-born Abdellatif Kechiche's "The Secret of the Grain," about an Arab family living in France, would be a worthy winner.

In the end a disappointed-looking Kechiche walked away with a jury runner-up prize, as did U.S. film maker Todd Haynes for his conceptual biopic of Bob Dylan called "I'm Not There."

Also in the frame in the runup to the awards were two films about the war in Iraq.

In Paul Haggis's "In the Valley of Elah," Tommy Lee Jones won praise for his performance as a war veteran whose son is murdered after returning from Iraq, and Brian De Palma's "Redacted" shockingly recreated abuses in Iraq by U.S. soldiers.

"MYSTERY" AWARD TO PITT

More controversial than the Golden Lion for Lee was the best actor prize for Pitt, who starred as the fabled outlaw in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford."

Critics said the decision was particularly baffling because Pitt's co-star in the movie, Casey Affleck, was widely considered to have stolen every scene, while Jones and Michael Caine in Kenneth Branagh's "Sleuth" were also frontrunners.

More popular were the Silver Lion for best director to De Palma, whose brutal film stunned audiences, and the best actress prize for Cate Blanchett.

In a daring piece of casting that appears to have paid off, the Australian-born actress was one of six performers to play Dylan in "I'm Not There," and arguably the most convincing.

Zhang sought to soothe one journalist who challenged the jury's decisions, saying that "all the force and power of heaven" would not be enough to guarantee a decision that kept everybody happy.

But the jury appears to have bent over backwards to appeal to as many tastes as possible by awarding the jury runner-up award to two films instead of one, and handing Russian director Nikita Mikhalkov a special Golden Lion for his work.

Lindsay misses out on the limelight


Poor Lindsay Lohan.

Toronto is in the midst of its world renowned film festival. New York City is buzzing with Fashion Week. And Las Vegas is about to host the VMAs, one of the biggest parties ever. And where is scene queen Lohan? Stuck in the middle of nowhere (a.k.a. Utah) working out her drug problems.

Rocking her trademark skinny jeans, retro Tee, and oversized shades, the rehabilitating starlet was snapped in the Cirque Lodge parking lot yesterday during yet another smoke/coffee break.

Meanwhile, Lilo’s weekend reunion with her father apparently went a whole lot better than expect. E! reports that “the moment Lindsay saw Michael, she started running and jumped into her father’s arms. Her father hugged her and swung her around. Lindsay was so happy. It was very emotional.”

Michael himself kept tight-lipped saying, “I can’t comment on my relationship with my daughter,” before commenting, “But it was amazing.”

% the devil and god are raging inside me

interview with John Nolan from Straylight Run.



The new record feels more "fun/free spirited" than the self titled, was there less pressure recording The Needles, The Space or more? What sort of writing process did the band go through in preparing and recording the album? Were there any specific influences (musical, personal, etc) that were present in the process that lent their selves to the record's final sound?

John: We tried to completely separate ourselves from any kind of pressure or expectation during the making of this album. We made the record without a record label; we worked with engineers who were our friends and who we had worked with many times before. We tried to create a relaxed environment where we could have fun making a record and be open to everyone's ideas. I think that really helped create a more free spirited sound. We spent almost two years writing songs and doing demo recordings before we went into the studio, so there wasn't this pressure of "Ok, now that we're done touring for our last record we have to get together and write new songs". We were just always writing and recording whenever we had time and trying to make sure we knew exactly what we wanted the songs to sound like before we went into the studio. All of that helped take a lot of pressure off and help us just enjoy the recording process.

Racy Timberlake 'Box' Video Wins Emmy



LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An off-color "Saturday Night Live" video featuring Justin Timberlake and strategically placed gift boxes was honored at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

"(Blank) in a Box," last December's fake music video performed by Timberlake and "SNL" cast member Andy Samberg, is about wrapping a part of the male anatomy and presenting it to a loved one as a holiday present.

"I think it's safe to say that when we first set out to make this song, we were all thinking 'Emmy!'" Samberg said in accepting the award Saturday for best original music and lyrics.

"The other thing we were thinking was, 'Hey! Here's this young up and comer, Justin Timberlake, who is clearly very talented and could clearly use a break,'" Samberg said. "So, Justin, if you're out there, congrats to you, kid.'"

The video, which beat out competition that included two songs from a musical edition of "Scrubs," became an Internet sensation. It garnered millions of views on YouTube and NBC's Web site, which posted an un-bleeped version.

The Creative Arts Emmys, which recognize technical and other achievements for the 2006-07 season, will air Sept. 15 on E!, the night before the Primetime Emmy Awards on Fox.

Timberlake was elsewhere Saturday: He had a concert scheduled in Tacoma, Wash. But his tour takes him to Los Angeles on Primetime Emmys night, raising the possibility he could perform "Box" at the ceremony.

As Samberg arrived at the creative arts awards, he told The Associated Press that he had yet to be asked by the TV academy to perform the song with Timberlake on the Fox broadcast - but he was willing, he said.

Other winners Saturday included the four actors who received awards for series guest roles: Elaine Stritch for "30 Rock," Leslie Caron for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," John Goodman for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and Stanley Tucci for "Monk."

"I think I was nominated in 1951 for the most promising newcomer. I'm glad I finally realized my potential," Caron said.

Spike Lee's New Orleans documentary, "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts," received three awards, including a directing trophy.

"Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" won a leading five awards. The film, which chronicles events leading up to the assassination of Sitting Bull and the Sioux massacre at Wounded Knee Creek in 1890, is up for more Emmy honors, including best TV movie, next weekend.

"This project has been a labor of love and a labor of conscience for everyone who worked on it," said executive producer Dick Wolf.

Entertainment industry executive Rich Frank, former president of Television Academy, received the Syd Cassyd Founders Award.

HBO collected the most trophies, 15, followed by NBC with 12, CBS with nine and Cartoon Network with eight. Fox earned seven awards, PBS six and ABC four.

Eric Estrada doesnt know his own strength.

Never apologize to Eric Estrada for stopping him for a picture with the intention of him loosening his grip. This only causes him to clamp down harder. I laughed out of pure fear of the man's death grip, and this picture is the result.

I also let the James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) pass me by in the hall while I was frozen like a deer in headlights.

This is a re-enactment of what a photo of Matthew would have looked like, had I the nerve to stop them at that moment:

Kate Hudson's new guy has a big dick

Owen Wilson may have another reason to
slit his wrists.
Owen’s ex, Kate Hudson,
is currently snuggling up to second-rate
comic Dax Shepard, who made his name doing
Punk’d with Ashton Kutcher. So what’s the
attraction? Well, Dax is known for being
“hung like a grandfather clock”. Whenever
Dax and Ashton used to go out drinking together
Kutcher would make Dax pull his dick
out and wave it around because he was
so amused at seeing a wang “as thick
as a coke can”.

Leave the antibiotics at home, because Britney's latest burning sensation is ... her new song!

At several gay clubs in West Hollywood this weekend, patrons cheered when "Gimme More" blasted through the room. Homosexuals loves me, y'all! Sources inside WeHo hotspots Fubar, Here Lounge, and Eleven tell TMZ that on top of the overwhelmingly enthusiastic crowd reaction, the dance track is currently one of their most requested songs. At least there's some loyal men in her life!

If tonight's VMA performance turns out to be the final chipped nail in Britney's career coffin, she can always play the Gay Pride circuit alongside Toni Basil, Katrina and the Waves, and Tiffany! Ding dang!

'I'm basically a brand'



 
John Cusack wastes no time getting down to business. "I've made 10 good films," says the 41-year-old actor shortly after striding into the Berlin hotel room in a backwards baseball cap and sprawling in an armchair. "I'm sure you know which ones they are. The ones that suck I tend to blank out. It's like I never even made them." I'm slightly taken aback at his honesty, though his tally is in the right ballpark. Here's my list: The Sure Thing, Eight Men Out, Say Anything, The Grifters, Bullets Over Broadway, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Thin Red Line, Being John Malkovich, High Fidelity, Max - that pretty much covers it. But has he really made 40 movies that suck? He mulls it over. "Well, there aren't 40 that are great, put it that way." He pauses for an eternity, eyes widening. "But that's fine. Ten is a good batting average, don't you think?"

Wills' joy as he passes tank test



PROUD Prince William has passed his tank commander course with flying colours — and is fully qualified to be deployed to a war zone.

Wills, 25, spent six months completing the gruelling course, which his brother Prince Harry has already passed.

He was trained at the Royal Armoured Centre in Bovington, Dorset, to lead four Scimitar reconnaissance tanks.

An insider in his Household Cavalry Blues and Royals regiment said: "William was determined to make sure he passed.

"To be honest, Harry's pass was of a higher standard. He rolls his sleeves up and gets stuck in with his men. William is a bit more aloof — but a pass is a pass.

"It is a tough course in which the men are taught maintenance and driving, signalling, gunnery and tactics."

William will now be a troop commander in D Squadron, with a sergeant, two corporals, and eight troopers below him, at Combermere Barracks in Windsor, Berks.

Harry's A squadron is in Iraq but it was considered too dangerous for him to go with them.

Victoria Beckham Heads to Fashion Week

Victoria Beckham (in Pucci) catches a flight out of LAX Airport on Sundahot pink ostrich Hermes Birkin purse.

Posh was trailed by several assistants who carried her Louis Vuitton luggage, blocked photographers, and escorted her through security.

There is something very amusing about Victoria walking through security on her tippy toes barefoot.

50 Cent Gives Near-Electric Performance

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

50 Cent's poolside performance at the Hard Rock Hotel almost turned deadly.

The rapper ended his show early after part of his stage — and its attached lights — sagged dangerously close to the water Saturday night.

"Back up," he yelled. "You're going to get electrocuted."

The trouble started when 50 threw a fistful of dollars into the air and fans swarmed to collect the cash. They leaned on the stage and it started to give way.

When the cash-seeking swimmers failed to heed his warning, 50 called it a night and walked off stage.

A Bleary Britney Kicks Off MTV Awards
By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY – 59 minutes ago

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Somewhere, Kevin Federline is laughing.

An out-of-shape, out-of-touch Britney Spears delivered what was destined to be the most talked about performance of the MTV Video Music Awards — but for all the wrong reasons. Kicking off the show Sunday night with her new single, "Gimme More," Spears looked bleary and unprepared — much like her recent tabloid exploits on the streets of Los Angeles.

She lazily walked through her dance moves with little enthusiasm. It appeared she had forgotten the entire art of lip-synching; and, perhaps most unforgivable given her once taut frame, she looked embarrassingly out of shape.

Even the celebrity-studded audience seemed bewildered. 50 Cent looked at Spears with a confused expression; Diddy, her new best friend, was expressionless.

Some comeback.

The VMAs was hoping to reinvent itself on Sunday. After suffering poor reviews and a decline in ratings over the last few years, MTV moved the show to Las Vegas' Palms Casino, shortened the show from three hours to two, and changed the show's setup to focus more on performances than awards.

To that end, Justin Timberlake and Timbaland, Kanye West, Fall Out Boy and the Foo Fighters were each hosting four separate suite parties, where much of the show's performances would be held.

Timberlake's suite was packed with revelers, alcohol and eight lingerie-clad stripper types on raised platforms. Before he accepted the Quadruple Threat of the Year award at his suite, the DJ summoned the partygoers to watch the monitor and go crazy if Timberlake won.

He did, they did, and Timberlake said: "I want to challenge MTV to play more videos!" Then he was whisked away by bodyguards and disappeared.

Meanwhile, Rihanna won Monster Single of the Year for her ubiquitous hit "Umbrella," and Beyonce and Shakira won Most Earthshattering Collaboration for "Beautiful Liar."

Other performers were appearing on the show's main stage, in front of an industry-only audience seated at tables, like at the Golden Globes.

The Palms' casino floor, already glittering with slot machines and blinking lights, was transformed into a dazzling red carpet, as the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Kid Rock, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Garner and a newly blond Nelly Furtado were among those who posed for the cameras.

And Nicole Scherzinger, making her solo debut from the Pussycat Dolls, gave a performance for the gawking fans, performing her new single with the rapper Lil' Wayne.

While Spears' performance was a showcase, others were delivered in snippets: Akon crooned a bit of his "Smack That" before an award was announced, while the cameras zoomed in on performances from Fall Out Boy and the Foo Fighters mid-performance in their suites, giving viewers the sense that they had happened upon an intimate concert.

One man who has some answering to do: Criss Angel. Did the magic man infuse any magic into Britney’s comeback performance at the VMAs? The Associated Press rips into Brit’s performance:

“Somewhere, Kevin Federline is laughing.

MTV Doesn't Care About Kanye -- Another Kanye Tantrum at the VMAs

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sour grapes from Kanye West — again. Shut out at the Video Music Awards, Kanye West threw a tantrum Sunday night in front of media and crew backstage as the MTV show was ending.

West, waiting for an elevator in a crowded hallway, began yelling about losing all five categories for which he was nominated.

"That's two years in a row, man ... give a black man a chance," West said, stomping around his entourage and directing his comments at a reporter. "I'm trying hard man, I have the ... number one record, man."

West said he never will return to MTV.

The rapper was nomination for five awards, including male artist of the year. This is the latest in a series of awards show outburst for West. Last year, he crashed the stage at the MTV Europe Awards after not winning for best video.

Marie Serneholt for Joy Clothing in Sweden

Marie Serneholt now solo from the pop group A*Teens is modeling for Joy clothing in Sweden. Joy clothing is marketed to the older woman so it's surprising that they chose Marie as their model. The 24 year old pop singer has a new album in the works that might have a different sound than her debut "Enjoy the Ride".

More news and images at the fan site Just Marie. Photos by Jimmy Backius. In the photos, the former blond has her hair dyed brown; a color close to her hair's natural reddish-brown color.

Billie Piper post

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Billie Piper has told how she was about to get a boob job - until a mystery man told her: "They look great."

The ex-Doctor Who star, 24, said: "I've always had a problem with my breasts because I think they're incredibly small and ridiculous.

"But not long ago someone said to me, 'Darling, they're French'. It changed my life and made me accept what I've got. Now it's like 'Yeah, they are small, but they still look sexy, even without a bra'."

*************

She said: “I really enjoyed the role because it was so different. And I learned one or two tricks to take home. I also got to keep some of the outfits.

“I now know how to walk around properly in my undies. People would keep telling me to push my tits out! I also now know how to use a whip on people without causing bruising.”

She added with a giggle: “What I do at home is my own business!”

I guess Kid Rock and Tommy Lee really did fight.

"Kid Rock just got into a scuffle with someone (Diddy was involved but I couldn't tell if he was in the argument or was trying to calm Kid down) while Alicia Keys was performing. Security had to grab Kid Rock from behind and hold him back from someone. He looked ready to beat some ass.

Kid Rock and Diddy, sitting at the same table, just shook hands but it turns out that they were not the ones fighting.

Kid Rock was fighting with Tommy Lee. I understand a punch was thrown and they were both ejected from the theater."

amy wino may be having baby



After claiming their drug problems are behind them, Amy Winehouse and husband Blake Fielder-Civil are reportedly trying for a baby.

A source, claiming to be a friend of the singer, told the News of the World: “Amy and Blake really want a child together and they don’t want to wait. They’re trying for a baby and Amy told us she could be expecting.”

“Amy thinks she might be pregnant because they shagged all holiday.”

“She really wants a baby and thinks it will help get her life back on track.”

But the source added that perhaps the ‘Back to Black’ star has it the wrong way around: “Amy needs to sort her problems out before having a bab. At the moment they can’t provide a good home for a child.”

Amy and Blake returned from their Caribbean holiday earlier in the week and Blake told the Sun that they’re not planning to return to rehab: “She’s really well and she doesn’t need to go back into rehab.”

He added: “We haven’t fallen out with Amy’s parents or mine for talking to the newspapers. They were concerned so said what they did.”
