There are a billion reason to love Mary J. Blige, so let’s start the day with just one. The singer was shopping recently at the Diane Von Fustenberg stores in downtown NYC, and overheard a customer freaking out about a dress she had on hold that she thought was $500 but turned out to be $900. Mary J. swooped in and asked to pay for the balance on the dress. “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it,” Mary J. said when the customer tried to deny her offer. “I insist.”
Awww! Aren’t you just swooning at her kindness? She even declined the lady’s offer to repay her the balance on the dress, saying, ” “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.” Other celebs out there – are you listening? Buy us stuff we can’t afford!? [NYP]
Any Winehouse fainted today and is being hospitalized. Gee, we wonder why? [Seriously? OMG!]
Katherine Heigl has pissed off TV writers and fans alike, after she withdrew herself from the Emmy race because she feels she wasn’t “given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination.” Get over yourself, Heig-y! [IDLYITW]
Joel Madden didn’t marry Nicole Richie, and he’s got the blog entry to prove it. [ICYDK]

David Letterman destroyed Spencer Pratt on his show. Think it’ll land him a date with Lauren? [WWTDD]
RiRi performed at the MuchMusic Awards last night, and the normally adorable songbird committed every fashion offense in the book:
- Cheesy officer cap? Check.
- Ruffled top that really belongs in the sale bin of your local Fashion Bug? Check.
- Lindsay Lohan skank leggings? Check.
- Patent leather hooker boots that probably cost over $1000? Check.
The only thing that could have made this look better? A little arm candy by the name of Chris Brown.
New beef alert! A couple of super hot video vixens – Rita G. and Dollicia “Doll” Bryant – hit up a radio show recently where they dished dirt on Kanye and talked trash about Bow Wow, ragging on his short stature and claiming he macked them while he was still with Ciara (WATCH the video of their trash talking sesh here). Ohhh snaps!
But Bow Wow’s not one to get walked all over, so he’s taken to the web with his own video (watch it above), refuting the gals’ claims. He’s even got recent footage (allegedly) of Dollicia hanging out with him and his boys. In his vid Bow Wow taunts the girls, saying, “You ain’t gonna win this game, you can’t play chess with Bobby Fischer, baby!” When discussing Rita G., who starred in Kanye’s “Flashing Lights” video, Bow Wow claims that “Nobody knows her!”
Well now we do! So who do you think won Round 1 of this battle?
Everyone knows that Ashanti and Nelly are a couple – and every knows that every one knows, except the lovey-dovey pair. So when Ashanti spoke about her man this weekend, she of course kept it vague and unclear, even though we all know what’s going on. “Me and Nelly, we’re good friends. We kick it ? hang out a lot,” the singer coyly revealed. “The industry is very hard, so it’s good to have fun and lighten it up.”
But wait! Ashanti kept going, and she dropped a tiny info bomb when asked he she and her man might be marrying soon. “”Oh no. Noooo! No engagement. But definitely in the future. Ha! Ha!”
Is she teasing us or telling the truth? Either way, we hope there’s a ring involved. [People]
Chrianna, the golden couple of hip-hop that has yet to reveal their love to the public, were spotted snacking on Jamba Juice together on Friday. How romantic and normal! With everything fast food joint they visit, we love Chris and Rihanna more. And you know what they say – the couple that juices together, stays together! If only they’d just admit that they’re a couple.
It’s not like Kanye‘s trying to make new friends, but you’d think he’d at least go after a few new fans. But after his craptastic performance at Bonnaroo, all he got was a crowd of haters. The rap-diva had been scheduled to perform at 2:45 AM on Sunday, but didn’t take the stage for almost two hours, thanks to his ridiculous stage set that apparently takes hours to set up. Hey, if Kanye wants a fake spaceship named Jane to talk to during his show, than that’s what he’ll get! According to comedian Aziz Ansari, West even complained to the inanimate object about his love life as part of the show, saying, “I been away too long. I ain?t had a woman in so long Jane. I just need some p*ssy.? Surely that kind of performer-spaceship interaction made the wait worth it, right fans?
Once on-stage, Kanye never addressed his delayed start, and later that day angry fans banded together for a “Kanye sucks!” chant, which probably would have been more effective during his actual concert. Oh well, they were probably tired (among other things).
Bored out of your mind at the thought of buying your dad another card/tie/book/novelty golf t-shirt for Father’s Day on Sunday? Never fear! We’re here to remind you that not everything about dads is totally dull. We’ve gathered pics of the sexiest celebrity dads for your viewing pleasure, in the hope that a little bit of Ryan Philippe and Will Smith will go a long way this weekend.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Pops out there – hot or not!

Ohhhh, this one will be a perfect follow up to the Madonna book! Lynne will document the family drama in her new tell-all, titled “Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.” Aren’t the Spears still IN the storm? A rep for the Christian publishing company releasing the book says, “Lynne begins by telling the story of her own family. She’s going to go into it.” Oh goodie! Perhaps we can make a few requests about the things we want her to get into! [Us]
- What’s up with Britney’s favored messy bun-ponytail hairdo?
- Why did Lynne let Brit wear a denim dress that one time?
- Did K-Fed’s breath smell like pot all the time?
- Does Brit know her kids’ names?
- Doesn’t it kinda suck when Britney buys a really expensive Mercedes and then ruins it by spilling Cheetos everywhere?
- Is there vodka in all those Frappucinos?
- On a scale of creepy to really motherf*cking creepy, just how creepy was that creep Sam Lutfi? Creep.
- Which daughter does Lynne like better: Brit or Jamie-Lynn?
- Seriously, it’s Jamie-Lynn, right?
