Even in the midst of chaos, Steven Tyler is our rock. A scarf-covered rock that’s constantly swearing on live TV and stripping down to it’s underwear, but still. What a fun rock to have around! The Aerosmith singer was in classic form while visiting the Today show this morning, both forgetting what show he was on and detonating the f-bomb during Al Roker‘s weather report. “Good Morning America!” Tyler enthused, before telling his screaming fans, “Thanks for coming out, you crazy f—s!” As Roker screamed in exasperation. “That’s why they haven’t done morning television! They don’t even know what show they’re on!” Oh Al Roker. May your good-natured frustration be our second constant in this time of tumult.
The gents were more subdued but just as mumbling and frisky while stopping by Big Morning Buzz Live this morning. “I used to work at a fruit stand. How do you like those apples!” he announced. Oh Steven. Dear god, don’t ever change. On an unrelated note, is Joe Perry‘s mustache melting? We’re going to assume yes because that just feels right.
Happy Friday, VH1ers! We’re dedicating today’s episode of Very VH1 to Breaking Dawn. Join us as we discuss yesterday’s Breaking Dawn – Part 2 press day with fellow Twilight fan, Taryn Ryder.

We’re sure Britney Spears‘ parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, are breathing a big sigh of relief after Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguerathrew out Sam Lutfi’s lawsuit against them yesterday. But if we were Britney, we’d also be hopping mad at the judge for waiting until now to decide there was insufficient evidence. You know AFTER Lutfi had thrown out all these allegations about his former client/girlfriend and her parents. Because as we all know, even if an allegation turns out to be false or unfounded, once it’s out there, it sticks. So now we will forever suspect that maybe Britney shaved her head because she was scared of a drug test, and possibly his drug-sniffing dogs found crystal meth in her house, and that entire downward spiral of 2007 was still the result of her breakup with Justin Timberlake (and that one was from Lynne’s lawyer!).
Those are just the sorts of things you want people talking about when you’ve finally gotten back on your feet, you’re engaged to a pretty normal guy and you’re doing a bang-up job convincing people of your smarts and sanity on live national television every week and your kids are starting to reach an age where they can understand that mommy’s in the news. Gee, thanks a lot, Judge.
Heidi Klumtakes it off…Her makeup, that is! The model went bare for charity and proves that she doesn’t need a full glam squad to look insanely gorgeous. It’s been a rough week for Ms. Klum, what with the annual Halloween party she looks forward to every year getting canceled. But it definitely doesn’t show in this snap for BBC’s Children In Need foundation, which is raising money for -you guessed it- children in need. The organization has started a new campaign where celebs pose au naturel called BearFaced, which just proves that these folks are really good at naming things.
“I am so proud to be taking part in this year’s BBC Children in Need BearFaced campaign,” the 39-year-old said in the press release. “Having worked in the fashion industry for a number of years, I am a firm believer of encouraging women’s empowerment. And what better way to do so than [by] supporting such a fantastic charity.” Of course, she’s not the only star who’s dared to go bare over the years. Head down to the gallery below for our mega gallery of 75 more celebs without makeup!
There were an equal amount of sparkles on this not-so-stylish list as they were on the best-dressed list at the CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee last night. But it’s alright, there’s always next time. We do admit that hostess of the evening, Carrie Underwood, being on up here is a bit of a surprise considering she’s normally so perfectly (if no predictably dressed.) But something doesn’t feel right with this ReemAcra dress. Perhaps it’s because it looks like there’s poison ivy creeping up her bodice? The detailing doesn’t work at all. We do love the Swarovski clutch and that massive Jonathan Arndt ring, though. Kimberly Williams-Paisley wasn’t much of a fight for us, as the slit combined with the super shiny fabric on her metallic dress (which matched her shoes) didn’t do it for us the second we saw her pictures. We love Miranda Lambert and covet her emerald and gold Sutra earrings. But the beige Maria Lucia Hohan dress looked completely flat against her coloring and besides that, the bodice needs a good yank up. Faith Hill so stunning as well, which is why we don’t understand why she would pick a Roland Mouret gown that is such a snore on her? The fit isn’t particularly great either. We get what Lucy Hale was trying to achieve here with her Moschino gown: grown-up vintage glamor with a hint of a contemporary touch. So, we do love the hair and the makeup and all the accessories — the Casadei shoes, the Kotur purse, the Nikki Baker earrings and House of Lavande ring. But the black sequined embellishment just looks a bit haphazard on her, so we’re not digging it as much as we’d like to. But that doesn’t mean you don’t? Let us know what your thoughts are!
While Cee Lo Green is still being investigated for sexual battery by the LAPD, we thought we’d recap some of the he-said-she-said we’ve learned from TMZ over the past few days. After all, this is a guy gracing our homes on The Voice twice a week, and we’d like to know what’s going on, whether he’s guilty or innocent.
She said: Cee Lo took her to a Los Angeles sushi restaurant in July and they had drinks together. She blacked out and woke up in a bed with the “F— You” singer in the room. She went to the police and filed a report. Then then called Cee Lo and recorded the conversation in which he apologized to her and made references to MDNA (a.k.a. ecstasy), according to TMZ’s source. But he didn’t actually say he’d given it to her. Read more…
Rihanna celebrated Halloween by dressing up as the Queen of Ganja, but she celebrated the day after Halloween by dressing down as the Queen of Sexy! The singer recently posted (yet another) half undressed pic to her instagram, stripped except for her green veil. Riri’s future wedding (un)dress, we wonder? “The morning after! Hello November,” she captioned the sizzling photo. She had spent that night living it up at her Halloween party, held at West Hollywood’s Greystones Manor. She arrived with friends Shaniece Hairston, and Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, but soon was seen hanging with Chris Brown, who showed up wearing the worst costume of all time. Other guests included Paris Hilton, comedian Kevin Hart, and Lindsay Lohan, but Rihanna obviously stole the show in her costume that paid tribute to her favorite 4:20 pastime. Head down below for a better look at the hotness!
We’re not sure, but we’re willing to bet that there are a lot of people who’ve wanted to snap at Chris Brown over the years.So when his lawyer laid a verbal smack-down on the singer yesterday in court, it felt pretty cathartic. Sadly, it wasn’t about his horrendous Halloween costume, but we take what we can get. Brown was in the midst of yet another probation hearing for his 2009 assault case against Rihanna, this one stemming from the drug use suspicions back in September.
While seeking permission from the judge to go on a world concert tour, Breezy made the mistake of trying to address the court himself. His attorney Mark Geragos didn’t like this idea and shut Chris down immediately. “I don’t dance, you don’t talk,” he told the 23-year-old star. Pwned. Even Judge Patricia Schnegg got a kick out of it, remarking with a laugh that she would enjoy seeing Geragos try to dance. She granted him permission to travel abroad, with the understanding that he check in afterwards to give a progress update. For the time being he remains under supervised probation, but this courtroom visit did not address the concerns raised during his last hearing that he didn’t complete his community service. He is due back in court on January 17th for another hearing.
So much sparkle at the CMA Awards last night! The only person on this best-dressed list who broke the trend was Jennifer Nettles who was beautiful and baby-bumpin’ in a deep, chocolate brown column. Simple, elegant and so very flattering. Kellie Pickler rocked her shaved head in a pale blue flowing Pamella Roland gown, which had a princess train. She paired it with matching and Tacori earrings. We like the fact the fact that the hair is so punk and the gown is so feminine. Adds a nice contrast! Hayden Panettiere — appropriately starring in Nashville — wore a stunning seafoam green Charleston frock by Georges Chakra Couture water and paired it off with a sparkling emerald strappy heels and clutch combination. Unusual choice, but so eye-catching! Martina McBride wore a bronze Grecian overlay gown secured at the waist by a thin gold belt. It complemented her coloring beautifully. Last, but not least, was Taylor Swift who picked a very pretty Jenny Packham gown, which had red sequined flower embellishment scattered all over it, with Jimmy Choosand Neil Lane jewels. Very Taylor! But who was your very best-dressed on this short but sweet list?
We thought the story from In Touch yesterday about Amanda Bynes wandering around at a New York tanning salon in nothing but a pair of goggles sounded fishy — then again, so did the stories about her talking to herself at the gym and locking herself in a dressing room — and decided not to re-report the tale yesterday. Maybe we were right? Speaking to Us Weekly yesterday, Bynes denied the rumor.
“I’m suing In Touch for printing a fake story,” she said. “I’m not ‘troubled.’ I don’t get naked in public.”
But the best part of this is her defense: “I’m 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy.” Because naturally, 26-year-old retired multi-millionaires wouldn’t dare get naked in public? But they do drive around L.A. randomly and get stoned before shopping at Home Depot. OK. This is new logic.
One a side note, how great is the expression of the woman to the left of Amanda in the photo above?
Another side note: We bet our intern Erin is happy the tanning story came out after Halloween.
