Fan of the game Guitar Hero? So are the Jonas Brothers!
Kevin, 20, exclaimed, “Guitar Hero is a necessity for us! I totally understand John Mayer’s perspective but for me I think it’s a great way to introduce the idea of an instrument to a generation of a young age. Maybe you would go on from there and transition into actually learning how to play and things like that. I’m the Guitar Hero guru of the Jonas Brothers!”

The King of the South was igniting each track with a viciousness that could well have fans and critics calling hisforthcoming Paper Trail LP (due August 12) his best since Urban Legend.
Clearly, Tip's half-year-plus under house arrest wasn't just spent building a huge replica of the Eiffel Tower out of Legos ("It took me two straight days," he said of his work). The MC — who recently said he's not angry that he only came in at #10 on MTV News' "Hottest MCs in the Game" — found escapism in his music and, as he played a handful of tracks from his forthcoming album, at times he sounded better than we've ever heard him.
There are boasts such as "Without the braids, I'm the closest thing to O-Dog" and admonishment of peers like, "What the game need with you? They got me."
I thought "No Matter What" was the first single. hmm I love that song. Either way, I can't wait for this album.

Lindsay Lohan almost didn't get the chance to change her life with a new movie, which starts shooting Monday.
"Labor Pains" producer Rick Schwartz kept getting turned down by insurers, an informed source tells us.
"[Schwartz] could only find one insurance company to cover her, and even then he really had to vouch for her."
As Carrie Fisher wrote in "Postcards From the Edge," actors with a history of drug and alcohol abuse, to which Lohan has admitted, have difficulty getting film insurance. Lohan is still on probation for two DUI arrests last year.
"Labor Pains" is just the sort of romantic comedy that could turn the talented 21-year-old beauty's career around.
According to the screenplay we’ve obtained, Lohan plays a young woman who pretends to be pregnant so she doesn’t get fired. She thrives on the attention she’s getting despite “carrying a volleyball around on her stomach.” We don’t want to be spoilers, but the script is hilarious.
The movie will be made whether or not there’s an actors strike, since the union gave Schwartz a waiver, Variety reported.
“Lindsay is a tremendously talented actress,” said Plum Pictures’ Celine Rattray, who’s co-producing the film. “We have spent a lot of time with her over the last three months, and she has really impressed us with her work ethic.
“She comes to every meeting 15 minutes early, to the point where she has shown up a few times before we were ready for her. She is rehearsing every day with energy and focus. She is lovely to her co-stars and the crew.
“We got her insured in the film, and our insurance and bond reps have also been impressed with her good behavior.
“Whatever personal issues she may have had in the past, it is clear to me that work is her total priority.
“She wants to make this role and this film a success, and I truly believe in her.”
Concludes our source: “It’s definitely the kind of movie people want to see Lindsay in, not like ‘I Know Who Killed Me.’”

The Virgin Megastore in Times Square, that behemoth depository of all things entertainment at the crossroads of the world, will be shuttered in the first quarter of 2009, according to reports.
Vornado, the company that owns the property, is forcing out the struggling chain so that it can up the rents on a new tenant, according to Reuters.
Virgin pays $54 a square foot in an area where rents can easily fetch $700, an executive vice president at Vornado told Reuters.
The chain's Union Square location should also vanish early next year, a victim in part of escalating rents.

French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy will release her third album next month, her U.S. label said on Wednesday, a signal that the pop singer is not letting official duties interfere with career goals.
The album, "Comme si de rien n'etait" (As if nothing had happened), comes on the heels of a memoir to be published this week, in which Bruni details her whirlwind romance with President Nicolas Sarkozy, her husband of four months.
The Italian-born model wrote or co-wrote 12 of the 14 songs, and will donate her share of the royalties to unspecified charitable and humanitarian causes, said a spokeswoman for Downtown Records.
The New York-based label will release the album in the United States under license from Bruni's French label Naive Records.
Downtown released her 2007 album "No Promises," in the United States earlier this year. It has sold a modest 6,000 copies to date, according to tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan. Worldwide sales stand at 380,000, said Downtown.
In her book, "Carla and Nicolas, the real story," Bruni praises not only her new husband's "physique," but also his "five or six brains."
According to extracts published in Le Point magazine Wednesday, she also told the book's authors that she had no intention of ditching her singing career.
"I have no intention to change job. I have a function, but it is not a job," she said.

Wonder Woman actress finds body on river in DC
WASHINGTON - The actress who played Wonder Woman on TV in the 1970s says she didn't do anything extraordinary when she discovered a body this week on the Potomac River in Washington.
Lynda Carter tells The Washington Post she was alone in a boat when she saw the body Wednesday. She says she didn't have a cell phone with her, so she yelled to some fishermen and asked them to call police. Carter waited until rescuers arrived and directed them to the body.
District of Columbia police say the body of 47-year-old Helen Johnstone of Washington was found floating on the river Wednesday. The medical examiner's office has not declared an official cause of death.
Carter says she "did what anybody would have done."
Except those people in Connecticut.

June 7, 2008 -- IT sounds like Audrina Patridge has had enough of Lauren Conrad's controlling ways. "The Hills" star, known for her sweet nature, has grown so uncomfortable around Conrad that they no longer speak, and Patridge won't stay at the guest house behind Conrad's home as she did during the show. "She hasn't officially moved out yet, but she stays with different people. It's grown so bad between them she doesn't want to be there," said one insider. "If your star starts to burn brighter than Lauren's, there's going to be trouble." Conrad was recently quoted as saying she and Patridge are "still friends." At a recent event for the newly relaunched Dodge Challenger, Patridge was overheard telling Michelle Trachtenberg how she's still looking at apartments. The two also dished on guys and raced each other on the speedway where Rob Lowe, Luke Wilson, Chace Crawford, Snoop Dogg and Carmen Electra cheered them on.

VIDEO: (Let's Get Movin') Into Action f. Tim Armstrong
DIRECTOR: Sean Wainsteim

Well check out Skye Sweetnam looking all hot in her super spy suit and then all girly girly in fancy dresses and ish! I like this video because it's playful and makes you feel like jumping in a Naughty By Nature sort of way (except there's no instructional chorus telling you to jump).
In this video, Skye and company are moving like spies through the forest as they make their way to a house. Turns out that they're crashing a boring garden party to inject it with a good dose of wreckless fun. This means pies in the face, streamers in the air, singing on megaphones and just the general agitation of the old people at the party. Truly this is the sure fire way to have fun, isn't it? Well, if there's anything to know, it's this: when Skye Sweetnam tells you to get into action, you better do it. And come on, she asked you nicely.

Anne Heche has reached a divorce settlement with her ex-husband Coley Laffoon, the Associated Press reports.
The actress, 39, must pay Laffoon, 34, a lump sum of $275,000, along with $3,700 a month in child support for their son, Homer, 6.
A judge also ruled that she must pay 75 percent of Homer's private-school tuition. (They agreed to split the cost of any of their son's "agreed upon extracurricular activities.")
The two wed in 2001.
Laffon filed for divorce in February, citing irreconcilable differences.
Soon after, Heche accused him of frequenting strip clubs, watching porn and being a deadbeat dad.
He fired back in court papers, saying her "credibility should also be called into question as a result of her mental instability, which was highly publicized in her  autobiography entitled Call Me Crazy."
Having sold more than 18 million albums in the U.S. and 27 million albums worldwide since her professional debut in 1995, Jewel has been honored by the Recording Industry Association of America – which surprised her with a career-milestone plaque on Thursday as she prepared to sign autographs at the Country Music Association festival in Nashville. "This is awesome. Thank you so much," said the singer, 34, the Associated Press reports. Jewel (full name: Jewel Kilcher) released her new album, Perfectly Clear on Tuesday. Its lead single, "Stronger Woman," is already No. 15 on the Billboard chart. This summer, she tours with Brad Paisley.

Keith Powell, who plays Toofer on NBC’s much loved comedy 30 Rock, is keeping his fingers crossed that talk show powerhouse Oprah Winfrey will make an appearance next season.
“That’s the rumor,” He told OK! at Bravo’s A-List Awards. “Last I heard, NBC was really, really trying to make it happen. I don’t know if it will happen yet or not.”
But fans of the show aren’t the only ones excited by the prospect of Oprah’s big 30 Rock debut. “There are very few people in the world that if I meet I would hyperventilate over and that would be her,” Keith confessed.
With a slew of famous faces having stopped by in the past, we wondered if Ms. Winfrey would play herself or some kooky character. “She’d have to play herself,” Keith added, “I think we’ve talked about her so much she’d have play herself and then you’d have to watch me loose all bowel movements.”
OK! even had a story line on hand for them — Oprah should play Keith’s love interest. “Ah, please! Write a letter. I’ll tell you who to write the letter to- Tina Fey. You need to write her and give her that story line!”
I'm off for a few weeks, finishing the album supposedly. I'm going to LA. It's been almost a year since I was last in America and I can't wait. I'm going to have 1 in n out burger when I get on the plane and then I'm only eating sushi for my whole trip. I hope they let me in this time. This is going to be my face at immigration
Anyways I'm at the airport, Heathrow terminal 3, beautiful view
I just bought some wicked Bose headphones and a Mac make up bag, nice lady from air New Zealand just told me the flights delayed till 5 ................ BORING! I think I might eat an apple.
By the way, the Mystery Jets new album is soooooo amazing, the song with Laura marling is great, but Flakes is my favourite track I think. Erol Alkan produced the record and I think it's the best album I've heard this year. Sounds pretty 80's in parts in fact it inspired me to do a Joe Jackson cover the other day, Stepping Out. Don't worry you'll never have to hear it.
So when I get back to Londres in a few weeks time, my flat will be ready to move into. I'm beyond excited, it's taken me 8 months to do it up; it was in a right state when I bought it but it looks amazing now. I've got a bath in my bedroom, yikes, and a remote control fire. I've been collecting art for years, but I've never had my own lace to put it all up in so, I CAN'T WAIT. Then it's summer and I'm not playing at any of the festivals, so I can just hang out and go and see bands, instead of having to leave straight after the gig, get on the bus and drive to the next one.
Write you tomorrow, I'm going to try and update the blog more now, I read something about kanye West posting 8 times a day, well I can't do that, mainly because I'm no way near as interesting, and I don't have as much to say, but I'm up for blogging more now.
David Cook performing at Wal-Mart Shareholders Meeting
British singer Matt Willis landed himself in rehab once again, after spending just one night with troubled singer Amy Winehouse.
Willis, who had been a part of the band Busted, was rushed to the The Priory after his fiancée, Emma Griffiths gave him an ultimatum to either clean up or forget marrying her.
Griffiths, who is a presenter, was very furious with Willis when he went back to Winehouse’s pad after a night out last month, and was even more upset when she saw the state he was in when he turned up at their North London home.
“He went too far after the night out with Amy. He was so out of it he started swinging at photographers,” Mirror.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
“He and Emma are supposed to get married next month and have a massive magazine deal but she told him he needs to sort himself out before she becomes his wife. She made him promise that he would give up drugs and heavy drinking - and she’s devastated he broke that promise. But Matt loves Emma and wants to do everything possible to win her back,” the source added.
Willis’ first visit to The Priory had been in 2005 for alcohol abuse, and then in 2006 he was re-admitted for his addiction to weed, which he was smoking at least a joint a day for eight years.
The singer is not the only one who has landed himself into trouble with Winehouse, last month it was revealed that her timid ex-lover Alex Haines was sacked for alleged drug taking.
Another to have been affected by her was former tour manager Thom Stone, who quit after handing in a doctor’s note, which said heroin had got into his blood after he’d been on the road with her.
There have not been any comments from Willis’ spokesman as yet. (ANI)
Chris Brown's Movie Career Heats Up, With T.I.-Produced Heist Movie, Shane Sparks Dance Flick On Horizon
Both T.I. and "America's Best Dance Crew" judge Shane Sparks revealed exclusively to MTV News — in completely separate interviews — that they're in talks with Brown to star in their next feature films.
"I have a script that I'm working on called 'Bone Deep,' over at Screen Gems, that I'll be starring in with Idris Elba," T.I. said, name-checking the British actor who co-starred with him in "American Gangster" and with Brown in "This Christmas."
At press time, Brown's reps said he was working on two movies, "Heist" (which is presumably the T.I. project) and "Traded," and is in talks for "Phenom" a film about a high school basketball player.
"It's a new-age, young, hip-hop 'Heat,' " Tip said, comparing his film to the 1995 classic that brought Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino together.
T.I. will star in and produce the project, and the MC hopes to cast Brown as a young member of a fun-loving criminal crew. "These are young, cool, well-dressed, articulate bank-robbers," Tip explained. "We're actually contemplating Chris Brown. I don't know how concrete that is, but we're contemplating it. ... He'll be the little homey.
"You can definitely expect action, definitely. It will be very entertaining," the "ATL" star promised of his producing debut. "In music, I'm on both sides: the executive business end as well as the artist/performer end. And film is no different."
An excited Sparks told us his next big-screen project "is a movie called 'The Jump-Off,' and it's like a 'High School Musical' meets 'You Got Served.' " (This is probably the movie Brown's reps call "Traded.")
Mmm. I'm really interested in this Heist movie.

It is true. Jared and I are no longer engaged. I did not want this information to have to come from me, but I felt it was necessary to confirm it in order to protect Jared from being asked questions about it this weekend in Dallas. Contrary to what you may have heard/read, our split was not caused by any fowl play on either of our parts, we simply decided that it was not the right time for us. We still love eachother very much, but we want different things in life, and it's a simple as that. Please know that it is extremely difficult for me to write this, and I can only imagine how hard it would be for Jared to have to talk about it in front of hundreds of fans. So I am answering the questions now with the hope that no one will make Jared have to speak about it publicly. Your support past, present, and future is very much appreciated.
Thank you for everything,

Anne Hathaway gave Steve Carrell pink eye when they kissed in new movie ‘Get
The 25-year-old beauty – who stars as Agent 99 in the spy comedy – said she
was suffering from itchy eyes when she filmed a particularly raunchy scene
with her co-star Steve.
She said: “There was a health scare last year and a certain contact
solution, I won’t say the name of it but it was the one that I use - gave
you conjunctivitis. I also had a sinus infection at the same time. So I had
to go up to Steve, my eye is red, puffy and dripping green - I’m snotty and
I’m just like 'Come here!' "
However, Anne revealed she was unaware she had pink eye – more commonly
known as conjunctivitis – and was forced to ring the film’s producer Alex
Gartner to warn him.
She added to ‘Fox News’: “I told Alex, ‘You might want to call Steve and let
him know I had pink eye and my tears kind of got in my mouth, so he might
want to worry about that!’
“But I'd do the kiss again in a heartbeat!”

Not only was the junkie rocker absent from a solo gig in France on Thursday night, but he failed to show up to the 30th birthday bash of best mate Carl Barat in London - although a look-alike in a porkie pie hat was fooling a few people.
But what a shindig the party animal missed...
A reveller at the plush Pigale club, in Piccadilly told us: "Carl's pals had a jazz player perform Kylie hits when he arrived. And Sadie Frost and Jodie Harsh went mad on the dancefloor. A cake fight ensued that had everyone in stitches."
Meanwhile Paris went potty searching for Pete.
Excuses offered to his fans at Paris's Rex Theatre at 11.30pm, two hours after he was scheduled to play, included he was left stranded for five hours on a broken Eurostar train.
But one angry fan said: "I was on the 4.25pm that got into Gard Du Nord at 7.50pm and experienced no problems at all." Over to you, PD.

The documentary RELIGULOUS follows political humorist and author Bill Maher as he travels around the globe interviewing people about God and religion. Known for his astute analytical skills, irreverent wit and commitment to never pulling a punch, Maher brings his characteristic honesty to an unusual spiritual journey. Directed by Larry Charles (BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), RELIGULOUS will mark Charles’ first feature project since the critically acclaimed, wildly successful BORAT. Jonah Smith and Palmer West of Thousand Words (A SCANNER DARKLY, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM) and Bill Maher are producing.
Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to star as Nolan Bushnell in Atari, a biopic about “the founding father of electronic gaming”, who was the inventor of Pong and founder of Atari.
Screenwriters Brian Hecker (Tribeca short film Bart Got a Room) and Craig Sherman (Pop Warner’s biopic) sold the pitch to Paramount on Friday, and DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way will produce. Hecker and Sherman told THR that they hope to play with elements from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Tucker.
Bushnell was an engineering student who went from fixing broken pinball machines to launching the Atari Corporation in 1972 (a reference to a check-like position in Go, one of Nolan’s favorite games) where he created Pong, which is often regarded as the world’s first video arcade game (which is actually untrue, as Computer Space launched a year earlier). A home version was released in 1974 and took the world by storm. Nolan sold the company to Warner Communications for a mere $28 million, to get the capital to release the Atari 2600, credited with popularizing the use cartridge based console video game systems. By 1979, the 2600 was the best-selling Christmas gift. By 1983, the company had sold over 8 million units. Nolan also created Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre (later known as just Chuck E. Cheese).
Having grown up a kid of the 1980’s, I have a huge amount of respect for Nolan Bushnell. That said, I’m not sure if his story is worth telling on the big screen. It seems more of a Pirates of Silicon Valley type of story. And I’m not knocking Pirates, it’s considered a cult classic among tech geeks, but there is a reason that that movie was made for television. And with over 20 projects in some form of development, as producer or star, I’m not sure DiCaprio will ever find enough time to clear his plate to do this film.
Among his other films in development, DiCaprio is also attached to play felon Jordan Belfort in Warner Bros’ The Wolf of Wall Street and James Bond creator Ian Fleming in Fleming. The actor/producer has taken on many real life roles over the years including author Tobias Wolff, poets Jim Carroll and Arthur Rimbaud, counterfeiter Frank Abagnale Jr. and aviator Howard Hughes.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and singer Justin Timberlake may not be qualified to play in the U.S. Open, but both proved they could break 100 Friday on Torrey Pines’ South Course.
The pair joined “Today” host Matt Lauer and a regular guy from Omaha, Neb., in a foursome bent on disproving Tiger Woods’ theory that it takes a pro to beat the course.
Romo, who missed qualifying for the U.S. Open this spring, won with a 13-over 84. The beefy quarterback, who boasts a 2.2 handicap index, barely broke a sweat playing the first nine holes in 5-over 40 but slowed as the six-hour round wore on.
“It got really tough to stay sharp,” he said, nodding toward the 18th hole, where he had his only double bogey after hitting into a bunker.
Timberlake, suffering from allergies, seconded Romo, although his game improved over the last four holes with two pars and two bogeys as he went into “Michael Jordan mode.” A 6.0 handicap index, he parred the 18th to finish at 27-over 98.
“It’s just inhuman, how well they strike it,” he said, referring to Woods and his ilk.
Timberlake, outfitted in a dashing black trilby hat and tuxedo-stripe pants, started hamming it up with the gallery once his taut dancer’s swing started to go south, blowing on the ball as it rimmed the seventh hole without any luck and asking the crowd to approve his drop into the rough at the edge of the fairway.
He couldn’t blame his troubles on Mother Nature, either, after he skipped off the course after teeing off at the first hole and making a beeline for the men’s room.
“Excuse me! I knew I forgot something,” he called out to laughing spectators in his soft Tennessee drawl.
Lauer scraped by with a 100 on the par-71 course despite playing with a 6.2 handicap index. He came back from an early quad and a series of double bogeys to make a par 5 on the final hole.
“It’s not easy,” he said. “I didn’t think Tiger made an outrageous statement.”
The only one of the four who didn’t seem to mind the scores was John Atkinson, a medical salesman from Omaha, Neb., who was chosen from 56,374 essay applicants to play in the challenge. He finished with a 43-over 114.
“At some point I just didn’t really care,” said Atkinson, who is undergoing treatment for advanced inoperable lung cancer. “I just wanted to enjoy it.”
Atkinson had a 56-person cheering section with him. They shouted “C’mon, Johnny!” when his ball hit the green and gave sympathetic claps and “awws” when he disappeared into the bunkers.
His friend, Dave Leahy, said the crowd joined Atkinson as he trained in Omaha to prepare him for the pressure playing in front of an audience.
“He was out there every Saturday with 50 people pretending to be the gallery and wearing a mike so he’d get used to it,” Leahy said.
He gave his caddy, noted sports psychologist Bob Rotella, a sweet shrug after chasing the ball around the green before making his putt on the fifth hole.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience for him,” said his wife, Lori. “It doesn’t matter.”
Woods told reporters last year at Oakmont, generally considered the toughest golf course in America, that no 10-handicapper could break 100. With Torrey Pines refurbished into a 7,643-yard “monster”—the longest in U.S. Open history—it served as a suitable stand-in for the challenge, hosted by Golf Digest magazine and NBC.
Torrey Pines, named for the rare gnarled trees that dot the cliffside course, will be the first city-owned golf course to host a U.S. Open starting next Thursday.

Celebrity funnyman Chris Rock was the victim of a practical joke while on tour in South Africa, after being pranked with accusations he had sex with a British minor, a prosecutor said Saturday.
"It was a hoax, it was for one of the US (United States) reality television programmes," said National Prosecuting Authority spokesman Tlali Tlali.
The US comedian, who is on his "No apologies" tour in the country, was duped by rumours he was about to be arrested for sexually assaulting a minor in Britain.
"They pulled one on him, information got to him that the South African Police Service was going to arrest him. Acting on that information he quickly approached lawyers who brought an urgent application at the Johannebsurg High Court where judgement was in his favour," Tlali told AFP.
Tlali said Rock had sought clarification on the charges to be brought against him.
A fake prosecutor, one of the cast members for the television show, appeared in court Monday urging that Rock be taken into custody, however the judge ruled he could not be arrested or detained without a proper warrant.
"This one went far, it must have been organised quite carefully," said Tlali, who said when prosecutors discovered the following day it was a prank there were mixed reactions with some slamming it as a waste of time, while others saw the funny side.
It was not known which television show was behind the prank.
idk, i posted this VIDEO because i think its funny as hale...i don't think the prank is too funny...and idk what kind of reality show this would be...
This looks rather beautiful.
Larry Birkhead has purchased a 10,000-sq.-ft., six-bedroom house in his hometown of Louisville, Ky., for himself and 21-month-old daughter Dannielynn, he tells PEOPLE.
Birkhead, 35, says the house, which has 40-ft. ceilings and is modeled after a Sicilian church, was never completed, needs a lot of work, and right now "looks like a haunted house," but he loves it.
"When I walked in, I said to myself, 'This is our home!'" says Birkhead.
He adds he might sell the Los Angeles house where he's sometimes haunted by memories of its former occupants – Dannielynn's mother, Anna Nicole Smith, and half-brother Daniel, who both died from drug-related complications.
"At first, I couldn't imagine parting with it," says Birkhead. "Then I realized I was probably holding on to it for the wrong reasons, thinking to myself that would ease the pain of losing Anna and Daniel. I have always thought that it would be great for Dannielynn to grow up in her mother's home; however, there is no yard as it is over a canyon."
He adds: "There also isn't any little friends for her to run around with – which makes the idea of Kentucky even more inviting."
Everyone in the Spears family has such class.

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has paid tribute to the dark acting skills of late actor Heath Ledger - branding his performance in the movie "terrifying."
The Brokeback Mountain star filmed his final scenes as the Caped Crusader's nemesis The Joker for the forthcoming Batman film last year, just weeks before his tragic death in January.
And Nolan states the actor's final film sequences are spectacular - likening him to a shark who expertly brings "chaos" and "mayhem" to the evil role.
Nolan tells Britain's Empire magazine, "Our Joker - Heath's interpretation of The Joker - has always been the absolute extreme of anarchy and chaos. (And) what makes him terrifying is not to humanise him in narrative terms. We didn't want to show what made him do the things he's doing, because then he becomes less threatening.
"I like to say he cuts through the movie like Jaws. He just kind of comes and goes and causes complete mayhem."
Earlier this year, sources close to the late actor claimed playing the manic role pushed Ledger into a depressive state, insisting he took sleeping tablets in order to rest after a playing the dark character.
Toxicology results released in February reported Ledger, 28, was killed by an accidental overdose of prescribed medications.

A pregnant Ashlee Simpson isn’t beaming with pride over her changing baby body. Ashlee recently confessed her fears about her expanding waistline and changing figure in a tearful phone call to her mom Tina, Life & Style spies say.
“Ashlee called me in tears the other day,” Tina reportedly told Ashlee’s big sister Jessica while mom and daughter were on a Memorial Day trip to Nashville last weekend. “She said, ‘Oh my gosh, Mom, did you see those pictures of me on the beach? My stomach looks like a rectangle. I look like Spongebob SquarePants!’”
According to the tab, Tina tried reassuring her youngest daughter that she is still very beautiful, but to no avail:
“I told Ashlee, ‘Aww, honey, no, you’re beautiful-you’re pregnant ...’ She said, ‘but I look so fat!’”
Mischa Barton showed off some very interesting pants at the 2nd Annual Design for Humanity Charity Event Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

He was never ugly, so no real embarassing photos. Although, the slicked back hair and braces wasn't his best year. I tried to find a 6th grade photo that I swore I had, in which he had the bowl cut that pretty much every guy had back then... but I couldn't find it.

I have a brain tumour but I'm getting on with my life, says Diana inquisitor Martin Bashir
By Katie Nicholl
Last updated at 10:16 PM on 07th June 2008
Martin Bashir, who became a household name after his extraordinary TV interview with the late Diana, Princess of Wales about the break-up of her marriage to Prince Charles, is suffering from a brain tumour.
The 45-year-old former Panorama presenter confirmed yesterday that he has a tumour growing on his pituitary gland but plans ‘to get on with his life’.
The potentially life-threatening condition was discovered after the celebrity interviewer was treated for a serious knock to the head last month.
According to sources in New York, where Mr Bashir lives with his wife Debbie and their two children, the presenter suffered the injury on the set of his Nightline show for ABC news in America and was taken to hospital for stitches.
It was only following a scan that doctors discovered the tumour on Mr Bashir’s pituitary gland, which is at the base of the brain and helps to control growth.
‘It has been a very worrying time for Martin and his family but the good news is that the specialists do not want to operate on the tumour yet,’ a family friend said last night.( Collapse )
Kanye West, 50 Cent, T.I. React To Their Placement On 'Hottest MCs In The Game'
"They talk about the [Hottest] MC list," a sweat-soaked West told the audience at the United Center. "I don't know if y'all heard about this. But I brought the Grammys home for y'all. And now I brought that #1 spot home for y'all. 'Cause every time I rhyme, I rhyme for y'all. Everything I do, I do for y'all. Chi-Town in this b---h. Chi-Town on the map. Chi-Town King of rap, and Lupe got my back."
Lupe Fiasco came in at #7 on the list.
Backstage at the show, Kanye shared his feelings a bit further with MTV News: "Ah man, that's dope. ... No, seriously ... That's really, really, super dope."
Some of the other MCs who made the Brain Trust's top 10 have also been responding to their rankings.
T.I., who was #2 in 2007, fell to #10 in 2008 due to his time out of the game while on house arrest. The King of the South didn't see his move down as a slight.
"I didn't take it personally, you know," Tip told radio host Ed Lover last week while visiting the personality's New York radio show. "I think it had a lot to do with the fact that when they was putting the list together, I didn't have any music out. At the time when they was judging how hot people were, I was on house arrest.
"I ain't trippin'," Tip added. "They gonna have to do another list. Jeezy is the homie. Everybody else on the list is the homie. I tip my hat and salute everybody else who made the list. I was just with [Andre 3000] last night. He was like, 'I appreciate it. I appreciate still being acknowledged, you know.' "
On Sirius Satellite Radio over the weekend, 50 Cent once again voiced his displeasure with the Brain Trust. 50 was up two spots from his 2007 #8 ranking.
"I shouldn't even be on that list," 50 said. "To be honest, I shouldn't even be categorized with them [other MCs on the list]. It doesn't even matter. Look at the people who are actually creating the list. None of them have made a hit record or [borne] the pressure of doing it."
50 suggested that MTV News get some MCs to help make up the next "Hottest MCs" list.
"Not necessarily the artists now," he said. "Artists who have previously created hit records, that understand the art form. You got a bunch of people who, because they interviewed rappers, they feel that they know. Because they read XXL or The Source. They don't understand."
cuz we haven't had a T.I. post in a while
She posted this in the band's livejournal:
so... i've decided to do this. it was only half thought out but i'm doin it anyways.
i saw that post someone made about the "handwritten book" on ebay. yes, it's mine. hahah. i don't remember being a sad child but i definitely loved horror films at a really young age. i guess that was reflected in this particular assignment. anyway, that's not exactly what i'm posting about. i'm actually posting about the seller of this item. it happens to be my ex-stepfather. who is... well... insane, hence the reason he is my EX-stepfather. so, while i can laugh at the fact that a bit of my past has surfaced, i have to admit i felt like throwin shit when i saw the username. to be honest, i'd love to post his full name. where he works. possibly a phone number??? then all of you could show him what it feels like when your personal life is out there for everyone to put their hands on. fortunately for him... living with him for 7 years wasn't quite enough to make me turn out just like him... or was it?
don't buy it. i'm gonna buy it. hahaha.

Kate Beckinsale has ruled out having more children because her daughter, Lily, doesn’t need any siblings.
“We’re such a merry little bunch as we are. Maybe I will at some point but I feel I have everything I want. Lily is the perfect child. She is really so much fun and into the same things as me. I am my mum and dad’s only child so I don’t really have the mindset for more children.”
Kate married her husband, Len Wiseman, in 2004.
Mary-Kate Olsen admits she and twin sister Ashley often argue.
The actress - who shot to fame with her sibling aged nine-months-old when they both played the role of Michelle Tanner on hit US TV show 'Full House' - says they don't always agree, but thinks their differing views help their creativity.
Mary-Kate - who has her own clothing line with Ashley - revealed: "We don't agree all the time. The way we go about business or designing or making a decision is that we come at it from two completely different angles that at the end of the day, even when we don't think we're agreeing with each other, we are agreeing. We're just getting there in different ways. Unless you're a twin, you honestly can't know how close twins can be."
Mary-Kate also finds it difficult to understand fame and finds it "weird" when her picture is taken.
She added: "It's weird to be called a celebrity or talk about it. I don't talk about being a celebrity in my business meetings. I don't talk about it with my friends. It's not a part of my life. It's a media perception of who I am. It's very weird.
"I mean, if I see a paparazzi shot of me walking that's in a magazine or something at some event, it's as if I see it from an outsider's point of view. There's like a character, almost, and then there's me."
