Rihanna Continues Her “Fear Of Pants” Concert Tour

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Rihanna, it’s that the girl really doesn’t like to wear pants. Just give a click to her artist tag and see what we mean. It’s all bikini’s ‘n’ daisy dukes! So we didn’t really expect last night’s gig in Sao Paulo, Brazil to be any different. The singer stunned and sizzled yet again as she took to the stage in a daringly high cut leotard and black fishnets. “TONIGHT was hands down one of my favorite shows!!!!” she tweeted afterwards. Probably because it’s the closest to no pants she’s ever gotten. This outfit is “the anti-pants.” Check out more pants-free hotness in the gallery below!

Demi Lovato Stops By Ellen To Open Up About Her “Meltdown”

Although one of Disney’s brightest lights, Demi Lovato has had anything but a fairy tale life over the past year. Struggles with bipolar and eating disorders landed the 19-year old in rehab last winter and threatened to totally derail her career. But like the skyscraper she sings about on her latest single, Demi rose above those challenges and returned to the stage better than ever! Yesterday the young star (and this month’s VH1 Posted Artist!) stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to talk about her struggles.

“I don’t know what to really call it but yeah, I’ve called it a breakdown, a meltdown,” she told the host. “I went from being at the highlight of my career…So many things were going great in my life and then all of the sudden my personal life just went down at crazy speeds.” But despite the awful comedown, Demi says that it was just the wake-up call she needed to seek professional help. “If I had never gone into the treatment … I don’t know if one, I’d even be sitting here today. Two, if I’d be alive today.” With her career soaring and her life seemingly on the path to success once again, Demi hopes that her experiences will serve as an example to her young fans who are going through problems of their own.

“There needs to be a role model out there and for the first time in my life I actually feel like one.” She warns young women to beware of “very very skinny” models that are so prevalent in the media. “It’s very unhealthy. There was nobody out there for me to look at and say, maybe this is unhealthy,” she admits. “So I want to be that for a 13-year-old girl at home deciding whether or not to eat dinner or an 18-year-old deciding whether or not to keep her breakfast down.” Demi’s new album Unbroken comes out at midnight tonight. Give it a listen, folks. This gal’s got something to say.

Charlie Sheen And Ashton Kutcher Meet At The Emmys

It had to happen someday. TV’s biggest night brought with it a meeting of equally epic proportions, as Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher met face to face for the first time. Unfortunately the Men-star summit took place backstage at the Nokia Theater and was not part of the Emmy broadcast. What were the producers thinking?! But luckily these few precious twit-pix survive of two, courtesy of Sheen himself. What could have been one of the greatest showdowns in award show history was actually incredibly cordial, even warm. “Giving the new kid a little advice..!” Chaz captioned the picture above to Kutcher. “Seriously… great talking to you! We’ll all be watching! Make us proud!!” Ashton responded in kind by writing, “Good to meet you too. Wishing you the best on your new gig.” Awww. It’s like a passing of the bizarro torch. Ashton will have his own pornstar entourage in no time!

Sheen is showing his mellower side these days. Maybe he’s kicked the drug called “Charlie Sheen” in favor of a drug called lithium. Last week he hit the talk show circuit and expressed remorse for his outbursts last winter. And last night he even addressed the assembled television gliteratti with a heartfelt (if awkward) message. “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and say a few words to everyone here from Two and a Half Men,” he began. “From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best from this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together, and I know you will continue to make great television.” Charlie says that he’s throwing a viewing party to watch the premiere of a Sheen-less Two And A Half Men tonight. Will you be tuning in too? Let us know!

Ryan Gosling Goes Gangster, And It’s More Badassery Than We Can Take

No, Ryan Gosling isn’t about to stop an earthquake with brute force. Hollywood’s favorite real life hero/specimen of perfection is on the set of his new movie, The Gangster Squad, which packs more badassery than we can handle from the looks of it. Although clearly about to rub some punk out with the pipe he’s wielding, he still looks like a criminal we’d  be happy to take home and meet our mothers. How does he do that!? Maybe it’s the dapper suspenders, loose tie and fedora. Or perhaps it’s just the magic of the Gosling. Check out more heart throbbing hotness in the gallery below!

Kristen Stewart Sports A Darker ‘Do At London Fashion Show

Kristen Stewart took some time off from filming Snow White and the Huntsman to step out at the Mulberry 2012 fashion show in London last night. In typical K-Stew style, she switched her attire from a sexy short skirt to an autumnal woolen cardie as the show went on. But the biggest change was her long dark tresses, which seemed dyed from her usual chestnut  brown to jet black. Very goth! Or at least as goth as someone can look while standing next to a giant ice cream cone and watermelon beach balls. Regardless, we’re diggin’ the new ‘do. Check out more of Kristen’s London fashion tour (with special guest Kate Moss) in the gallery below!

Small Screen, Big Style: Red Carpet Looks Of The 2011 Emmys

TV fans the world over are tuning in to the Emmys: the small screen’s biggest night! Although always full of famous faces, tonight is an especially star studded affair with some of the brightest movie stars crashing the red carpet at LA’s Nokia Theatre. Zooey Deschanel, Ashton Kutcher, and Oscar-winners Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet…Who let these guys in!? We can forgive em (we guess) considering Ashton and Zooey are staring in the most anticipated shows this fall (The New Girl and a Sheen-less Two and a Half Men), and Gwyneth and Kate are both nominated for the award. But it doesn’t matter if you’re actually a winner, as long as you’re dressed like one! Our favorites so far have got to be Vampire Diaries vamp Nina Dobrev in a redder-than-red-carpet gown, and Aubrey Plaza looking Old Hollywood hot in a white Marilyn-like number. And of course, bombshell Christina Hendricks destroyed the competition like we knew she would in a curve-hugging, high-slitted, low-necked silver dress. Check out the best (and the rest) in the gallery below!

Journey Guitarist Sends Tareq Salahi Taunting Penis Pics

There’s so much to this whole ridiculous Salahi-Journey incident that it reads like the best episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm that you’ve ever seen. It’s complex, but darkly hilarious and inherently perfect. So please indulge us for a moment while we unpack it all for you and savor each and every detail. Maybe -just maybe- it’ll make you believe in karma. It’s the law of the universe: if you do something stupid like crash a White House party, a stadium rocker should send you obscene pictures.

As we told you earlier in the week, Tareq Salahi grew concerned when his wife Michaele didn’t return from a hair appointment, and became convinced that she had been kidnapped. It turns out she wasn’t kidnapped, but instead having a torrid affair with Journey guitarist, Neal Schon. Tareq was also friends with Neal, and had even filmed the rock star giving his wife a peck on the cheek over Labor Day weekend. So he understandably feels betrayed, and sought consolation from that big cuddly wad of compassion, Michael Lohan, who could never miss an opportunity to get back on TMZ.

Now Tareq has resolved to divorce his Real Housewife Of DC, but not before taking another humiliating slam at the hands of Neal Schon. In the most gorgeous display of immaturity we’ve ever seen, the Journey front-man tauntingly emailed Tareq pictures of his penis. Not only that, but he also revoked Tareq’s backstage passes to all Journey shows, banning him gigs with a series of posters at each venue! Tareq probably isn’t gonna feel the urge to rock out to ‘Don’t Stop Believing’  live anytime soon, but still. Never in the course of human history has a man be so completely and thoroughly pwned. The only way for Tareq to get the last laugh is if this whole thing is fake. In which case we say: thanks for the laughs Salahi’s! We never stopped believin’!

Elisabetta Canalis Spices Up DWTS Taco Break In Sports Bra

Muy caliente! The Dancing With The Stars cast had a taco break during rehearsals yesterday, and Elisabetta Canalis gave everyone an extra helping of hotness in a belly baring black sports bra. Spicy! Let’s hope the cast had some water handy. We’re tearing up more than ex George Clooney when he eventually sees these hot pix. What’s more, the Italian beauty wasn’t only without a shirt but without makeup as well. Damn. We don’t care who’s the best dancer, this season of DWTS already has a winner, and she’s hotter than jalapenos. Check out more bras, beauty and burritos in the gallery below!

A Pre-Fame Lady Gaga Gets A Tattoo From Kat Von D

Even before she caught The Fame, we knew that Lady Gaga had glam and sprinx in her veins. And now this video of Mama Monster taken on the edge of super-stardom (and glory) proves it! A clip has just surfaced of Gags getting a tattoo from none other than Kat Von D, and it’s actually pretty adorable. The moment took place in early 2008, when Gaga moved to LA before the release of her debut record. Even before becoming a living legend, she made sure to dress the part in a long blonde wig and sparkly blue hot pants. Fake it til ya make it, girl! And Von D was still light years from becoming a famous/infamous reality TV face. But fate had something in store for theses two.

Ever the professional, Kat starts making small talk with the artist-then-known-as Stefani Germanotta, and her casual responses are disarmingly sweet, charming and simple. “I’m a singer and also a songwriter for other artists,” she tells Kat, who then asks of she’s “working on anything cool or interesting.” Not much, just fusing pop and performance art to change the music industry as we know it, NBD, she could have said. But instead she goes with “I worked with New Kids on the Block last night, it was rad!” Our minds are blown into mini Donnie Wahlberg-shaped pieces.

She then starts talking about her home in New York while the LA Ink star does her thing, tattooing intertwined roses onto her lower back. “I have an Italian family. They still live there. I go home and have meatballs.” Apparently at this point her fam is still getting used to Gaga’s tattoos, not knowing the avalanche of crazy their daughter would soon unleash on the world. “When I got the first one, they had a heart attack,” she admits, “Then I had a heart attack because I felt bad for not telling them I was going to do it. We’re really close.” We wonder what else Gaga hasn’t told them over the years. Check out more in the vid above!
