Ray J is desperate for his own music career, but is always overshadowed by his big sis Brandy, his sex tape partner Kim Kardashian, and his menopausal sugar mama, Whitney Houston. But finally the young star has done something to garner attention all by himself! Too bad it involves some seriously sketchy drugs. The singer was allegedly kicked out of his DC hotel this weekend, after Hyatt security received complaints about partying in his room. Spies report back that Ray J was allegedly in possession of weed and something called boat, which might be PCP? The cops didn’t press charges, but the hotel did boot Ray J after he tried to bribe the staff to let him stay. His own security hand to come haul him off! How diva-like! If only he had a career that matched his attitude.
Wow. It’s not everyday that celebs match their make up to their dress, but Lil’ Kim seems to have mastered this look! At least she went for the look at the Sex and the City movie premiere, where anything goes in the outfit department and the uglier the better. Now if only she could do something about that creepy look in her eyes.
Ashlee‘s big sis has dropped her first single off her brand spankin’ new country album, and boy does it suck ya’ll! At least our little divorcee has learned a valuable less – if at first you don’t succeed, just try a different musical genre. But never fear, dear Jessica Simpson fans! If the song and subsequent country album both flop, she’ll have Tony Romo’s beefy arms to run into. The football star has taken his lady back under one condition – her dad stays out of the picture and stops messing with their relationship. Sadly, her career is another story.
Give Jessica’s new single – titled “Come On Over” – a listen and tell us what you think. Good, bad or ugly?
(The VH1 Blog knows very little about the law. So we’ve solicited Mark Muro, a founder of the California law firm Muro & Lampe, Inc., to keep a running tab on which side has the advantage in the R. Kelly child pornography trial. Check back daily for updates.)
Week two started off with a bang for the prosecution as Lindsey Perryman, a former assistant to R. Kelly, testified that the alleged victim once showed up at Kelly?s studio with a “pillow and overnight bag.” (What? He didn’t have a spare pillow?) According to Perryman, this was not an isolated incident, but the alleged victim would come by the studio a couple of time’s a week. On one occasion, Perryman even claims to have driven the girl to Kelly’s home. Perryman identified both the alleged victim and Kelly as the ones in the tape. This eye witness is particularly damaging to the defense because she has no apparent ax to grind with Kelly.
+1 for the prosecution. Read more…

A few weeks ago, we asked you to submit your love and relationship questions to Lil Wayne. No question was too racy, no situation too complicated — the superstar MC would tackle anything.
Well, our hero has listened to all the questions, and in the first installment of “Ask Weezy,” he explains what to do when you’ve got a lazy lady, whether a man’s taking advantage, and if there’s something too freaky for even Wayne to do in the bedroom. Be sure to stop back on Friday, when we’ll have Wayne answer more questions, and pre-order your copy of Tha Carter III here, out June 10.
Remember those pics of Lindsay Lohan getting all kissy n’ cuddly with her BFF Samantha Ronson? Well her dad thinks it’s a sure signal that his baby girl is currently hitting it. Michael Lohan told Us magazine that their budding love affair “is evident to anyone with half a brain.” Normally we think Daddy Lohan talks crazy, but he finally might have a couple of screws straight!He did not add to the gossip frenzy that LiLo and Sam may be engaged, which is the current rumor du jour since the redhead showed up in Cannes this weekend wearing some diamonds on her ring finger. Before we let a big long sigh about how dumb this one is, let us add to the stupidity by telling you that the alleged wedding location is Dollywood. Yep, Dolly Parton‘s amusement park. Lindsay’s trashy, but she’s not like, that bad.
Brooke Hogan, star of the VH1 show Hogan Knows Best, was in a car accident this weekend, which immediately dragged up memories of the tragic car accident that landed her brother in jail for 8 months and his BFF in a coma. Can’t this family get a little bit of good luck every now and then? The wannabee singer was hit from behind (while cruising with a pal in her Mercedes) and pushed into a concrete wall. As usual, Brooke hopped onto her Myspace page to write about the ordeal and then promptly took her note down. She wrote:
“I don’t know if you heard, but my friend and I got into a really bad car accident today ourselves . . . As I turned on my car I clicked my seatbelt. As we pulled out onto the road, I looked over and realized my friend didn’t have her seatbelt on. I reminded her to put it on and the minute she clicked it, a car crashed into us. It was a horrible car accident, one that most would be severely hurt in, but we had our seatbelts on and they kept us in tight.”
Wanna meet the up and coming little lady with a big voice who could knock Amy Winehouse off her crack-covered pedestal? It’s none other than Wino’s 12-year old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, and a video of her – filmed by none other than the UK’s own super-director Pete Doherty – singing Alicia Key‘s hit “If I Ain’t Got You” is currently racking up thousands of views on YouTube. Accompanying the tween on guitar is none other than a bra-clad Amy, who says of the future-star, “…I love her to bits. Dionne really is special, she’s better than I was at her age.”
Hopefully her godmother’s rocky path can serve as a lesson to young Dionne, who attends a singing school in England and is heading to LA this summer with Amy to start working on her career. As long as she remembers that crack is whack, she’ll be fine!

1. Dina Lohan - Why not ruin one daughter when you can ruin two?! This week Lindsay‘s running around France forgetting what she learned in rehab, while Dina focuses on destroying Ali‘s youth with her new reality TV show.
