Lil’ Kim has long been an artist who likes to make headlines with her looks as much as her lyrics. Ever since she first broke out of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. to begin her solo career in 1996, she’s been dressing up, and down in the skimpiest of outfits, exaggerating her features with all sorts of dramatic makeup, and catching our eyes with a variety of hairstyles and wigs and colored contacts. All the while, she’s also been altering her face under the skin with a number of surgical procedures. So, when she showed up in West Hollywood on Saturday to perform for the L.A. Pride festival and looked more like a latter day Charo impersonator than a Brooklyn rapper, we shouldn’t have been surprised. And yet, we kinda were. Because that face, that leotard, that makeup … it just took our breath away. Anyway, take a look at Kim’s evolving look, from 1996 to today, just to prove to yourself that this was not an overnight transformation:

Coco has been very good to us here at VH1 Celebrity. Plus, we feel that her husband Ice-T could totally kick our ass. So when we found out that Cosmopolitan called the lovely Ms. Austin “skanky,” it really rubbed us the wrong way. The magazine featured a picture of Coco walking her dogs in their “Sexy vs. Skanky” column, and they were less than kind in discussing her, errr, minimal attire. “Showing your pups while walking your dogs,” they snarked as they bestowed the skank label.
Coco took to her twitter last night and fired back at the fashion mag’s accusations. “Cosmo is always talkin crap about me,” she wrote. “Paparazzi took pics while I was at dog park! They think I’m skanky cuz I’m wearing a tank top?? So stupid,” Sticks and stones, Coco. Sticks and stones. But she’s not taking it sitting down and neither are we. We’re going to do the right thing and jump to defend Lady Coco’s honor! We’ve painstakingly assembled her 40 most glamorous styles of all time. Take that, Cosmo! It’s red carpet chic, in a way that only Coco can. We’re pretty sure you’ll enjoy. Head on down to the gallery below and see for yourself!

What’s hot, hard, and runs on Windows XP or higher? It’s robots of course! Our artificially intelligent friends have been heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks for decades. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. From Weird Science‘s Kelly LeBrock and Jude Law in A.I. to Jeri Ryan in Star Trek: Voyager and even that Svedka Vodka ad, you don’t have to be well versed in C++ or QBasic to appreciate the sizzling appeal of these machines!
Ridley Scott’s latest epic Prometheus opens wide today, starring Michael Fassbender as hunky android David. We haven’t seen it yet, but we think he’s definitely in the running for one of the hottest robots in pop culture history. But there are so many to choose from! Check out the gallery below for our list of the 20 sexiest robots of all time. With hot bots like these, who needs humans? Did we miss any? Disagree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments!

We’re going to be as delicate as possible when it comes to suggesting Megan Fox might be with child, as we wouldn’t want her to feel bad if we we’re wrong. One time a guy on the subway though we were pregnant and, long story short, we never wore an empire waist dress again. On the other hand, we have been hearing Megan Fox pregnancy rumors since at least April, if not before. On the other other hand, we’ve also been hearing Megan Fox pregnancy rumors on and off for the last three years, so honestly we didn’t give the gossip much thought. New photos of the Friends With Kids star and her hubby Brian Austin Green walking around L.A. today, however…well, we’ll let you draw your own conclusions.
Now, we’re not saying that plenty of women don’t have adorable belly bumps that come exclusively from consuming party subs; we’re just saying we don’t usually touch and rub said sandwich bellies like they contain, let’s say, a tiny little person inside. At least in public, anyway. Check out the rest of our Megan photos after the jump, and let us know what you think. Note: we probably already know what you think.

Sure, we’ll miss Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker when America’s Next Top Model returns for Cycle 19 (!), but after spending the afternoon putting together this little gallery of the show’s new British judge, model Rob Evans. We have no idea about the former boxer’s skills with a bon mot at the judges’ table or whether he has very discriminating taste, but we could certainly forgive any shortcomings in that department. He certainly has Tyra’s seal of approval … and then some. According to RadarOnline, the 38-year-old model mogul and her 24-year-old recruit have been seen in L.A. and Newport Beach “canoodling” and going up to a hotel room together. This is mere weeks after Tyra was spotted out on a date with Drake, so all we have to say is, you go, Ty-Baby.
The recent Harvard grad openly showed her admiration for Rob, and posted an Instagram of them together last month with the caption, “All I can say is … yum.” Rob doesn’t seem to mind, either. In an interview with WetPaint after his Top Model gig was announced, he was asked if he expected rumors of a romance with his new boss would be surfacing soon. “Definitely. I’m a big flirt anyway,” he said.
Technically, the object of basketball is to put a cantaloupe-sized rubber ball through a hoop. But champs know that the real goal is to turn up at the post-game press conference looking like a true baller in stylin’ threads! The Oklahoma City Thunder stomped on the San Antonio Spurs last night, earning them a spot in the NBA Finals. 23-year-old team captain Kevin Durant lead the crew to a 107-99 victory during the sixth game of the semi-finals.
In addition to their athletic superiority, the Thunder have long proved themselves to be the snazziest team in the league. Durant and his teammates Russell Westbrook and James Harden are often seen off court wearing outfits that are louder than the final buzzer! Oklahoma City will go on to play either the Miami Head or the Boston Celtics in the finals. But no matter who gets the most baskets, the Thunder definitely wins the fashion style-off. Head on down to the gallery below for some of their greatest post-game press conference outfits of all time. Enjoy!
That “bump” you see on Gisele in the photos taken of Gisele last week looks a hell of a lot like what we like to call “breakfast.” But yeah, on a supermodel, it very well could be proof that the 32-year-old Brazilian beauty is in fact three months pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Brady. Us Weekly cited an unnamed source as confirmation that 2-year-old Benjamin was going to be a big brother.
On the other hand, the Boston Herald says Gisele’s rep denied the report. “She has not shared any baby news with any of her inner circle,” the spokesperson said in an email to the paper. “I think it is a slow news day at Us lol.”
Whether or not the rumor is true, we would like to say these two know how to make a cute baby — and Tom’s got another cutie, Jack, with ex Bridget Moynahan — so we certainly understand wanting to keep at it!

Well that’s one way to garner publicity. Not even a full 24 hours into the shoot of Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan pulled a “Lindsay Lohan,” slipping a nip in full view of photographers. How convenient! And judging by her costar Grant Bowler’s face, it must be pretty horrifying. The wardrobe malfunction took place while shooting a scene on a yacht where the notoriously stormy lovers Elizabeth Taylor and two-time husband Richard Burton were having some sort of spat. No word yet on whether or not this was part of the script or simply an accident. We’re kind of leaning toward “accident,” because that definitely doesn’t seem Lifetime TV friendly. Plus we already know that Lindsay has final say over the costumes. We’re not saying that she engineered today’s slip-up on purpose, but…

We seriously had to do a double take when we saw these shots of Betty White standing next to her new wax statue. A few minutes later and we’re still not totally sure which one is the living breathing White! The 90 year-old was honored by Madame Tussauds in Hollywood yesterday amid adoring fans reportedly chanting “You’re amazing!” Betty was definitely happy with the tribute, but jokingly wished it could have come sooner! “The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90,” she told reporters.
Even so, the legend is impressed with the uncanny likeness. “I think they did a wonderful job,” she told People. “I’m really amazed. I’m so impressed. I don’t know how they do this, but it’s a tremendous honor and I appreciate it.” In reverence to White’s love of pink, the crowd was reportedly given free hotdogs from Hollywood landmark Pink’s. That’s great, but we’re a little surprised they didn’t have more gold for the former Golden Girl! “I’m just the luckiest person on the face of the earth,” she gushed. “At 90, to have this kind of an honor is amazing.”

Mark Wahlberg turns 41 today, but the bad-boy rapper turned award-nominated actor and producer still has the pecks and abs from his younger days. We recently saw the evidence all over the Web, as he was filming his new movie Pain and Gain in Miami and showing off his killer physique all over town. Mark even took it back to his Calvin Klein ad days by parading around in his underwear on his balcony.
Partly in preparation to play Micky Ward in the 2010 boxing flick The Fighter, Wahlberg beefed up quite a bit in recent years. The Boston native also literally flexed his muscles as Holbrooke Grant in the 2010 comedy Date Night. But he’s not just a pretty face: He was a producer on The Fighter, and exec-produced HBO series Entourage, How to Make It in America and Boardwalk Empire. He’s the whole package, but to celebrate Mark’s 41st birthday, we’re going to celebrate his less cerebral pursuits with 20 pics of the shirtless actor.
And while you’re at it, check out the video clip above to see celebs like Julianne Hough and Brooke Hogan weighing in on their shirtless Mark Wahlberg moment. Got one we forgot? Let us know in the comments section!
