J. Lo’s Poppin’ Out her $6 Million Twins

marclopez.jpg

Here come those golden nuggets of baby that Jennifer Lopez has been lugging around for nine months! The Gigli star is currently holed up giving birth in her private room at the North Shore University Hospital, where she is presumably being fanned by a small army of male models and fed grapes by an endangered monkey, as an assistant does all the pushing for her. The room sat empty for two weeks before J. Lo arrived, complete with plush leather couches and beefed up security. Hospital staff even supposedly ran drills to prepare for a possible Lopez-Anthony baby kidnapping. Rats! They foiled my plan!

Clearly, Jenny thinks she is the unofficial Queen of America, but she may be the only one at her coronation. People mag has reportedly offered Lopez $6 million for exclusive photos of her kids that will go in their US edition only, and OK! has forked over a bundle for the international rights. But why didn’t they go for the right to print the photos here in the States? One unimpressed expert responds: “Look at her track record with her movies, and look at her album sales. The U.S. market hasn?t been fascinated with her in some time,? the source said. ?It makes more sense to not spend a fortune on photos that won?t cause a noticeable increase on the newsstand. This just isn?t going to sell like Shiloh (Jolie-Pitt), and $6 million is a lot of money.?

Make a Track With Flavor Flav!

flavor-flav-189?1.jpgFlavor Flav may be an expert at choosing a hottie from a harem, but he also knows all about the beats that are needed to bring a rap track to life. All those years watching the Bomb Squad do their thing with Public Enemy didn’t go to waste – no way. So we’re giving at-home producers a chance to hit the studio with our main man. The Track contest lets beatmeisters submit their stuff and have it heard by the world. The person who wins the whole shebang will be flown to L.A. to perfect their creation with the help of Flav himself. Submissions are open through March 14. The time to get going is right now.

Gene Simmons Takes Sex Tapes to New Low

genesimmons.jpg

The world of celebrity boning caught on tape has just hit rock bottom. Gene Simmons – the 58-year old KISS frontman – has made a sex tape, and it’s not with Shannon Tweed, his partner of 20+ years. The lady in question is one of the spokesmodels for Frank’s Energy Drink, which Gene also promotes. We can’t say we’re surprised by any of it (after all the old rumor is that Gene’s bedded over 1000 ladies in his lifetime), but we’re certainly a little nauseuas from looking at the pics available online. It’s not that Gene’s too old for sexing up the ladies, it’s just that he’s kinda gross, but thankfully he keeps his t-shirt on the entire time. As for Elsa, she’s obviously one classy lady – she rocked her platform flip flops during their romp.

If you can handle it, the tape is available over at GenesSecret.com (NSFW, obvs). Too bad it’s not that much of a secret anymore! Fans of Gene’s tongue may also be disappointed – from what we could see his legendary appendage didn’t make a cameo in the video’s preview.

Sara Bareilles & the Tour Bus From Hell

sara_bareilles

The incredibly talented Sara Bareilles is out on the road with James Blunt on the You Oughta Know Tour. We asked the piano-playing phenom to give us updates from the road, and given that she’s such a sweetheart, she obliged. In her first installment, Sara tells us what she did on Valentine’s Day, and why having a tour bus might not be all it’s cracked up to be.

I’m sitting in the front lounge of our beautiful new bus, and it’s Valentine’s night. I wish I was out celebrating with friends but I’m nursing a cold instead of a beer. Needless to say, I’m so excited to be a part of this VH1 You Oughta Know Tour. The shows have all been sold out so far, and I know that both James Blunt and I have been thrilled with the whole experience. We are getting to play INCREDIBLE venues and there are so many wonderful listeners coming out to support. But since it’s more fun to hear the sordid details than how perfect everything is…

Britney About To Be a Mom Again

britney-babies.jpgRun Sean Preston, run! Apparently K-Fed couldn’t handle the full-time dad duties he got stuck with, and is in court right now trying to get Britney back her visitation rights. Mama B hasn’t seen her kids in almost two months, but lawyers from both sides of the Spederline custody battle are attempting a way to figure out how to make it happen. The only problem? K-Fed wants Britney’s parents to be around when the boys visit, while her people want visitations to happen in a “therapeutic setting.” They’ve allegedly been trying to get the troubled singer into a medical center where she can receive treatment for her bipolar disorder, but as the whole world knows, that ain’t currently happening.

Brit’s got a new lawyer on the case, and – other than a recent vag flash over the weekend – seems to be making a wee bit of progress on the crazy front. So what do you think – is she ready to hold her babies? [TMZ]

Artists Assist Victims of the Station Fire

stationconcert.jpg

One tragic event, innumerable tragic offshoots. When Rhode Island’s Station nightclub burned to the ground on February 20, 2003, 100 rock fans died and 200 were injured – many of them dreadfully so. It’s been five years since the infamous blaze took place, and lots of lives still need help being rebuilt. Though some compensations have been issued, the whopping medical bills and daunting personal struggles are crippling for many of those who went out to see Great White perform in the tiny club on that frigid night. Those facts are the reason that an array of artists from both the rock and country camps have chosen to participate in “Phoenix Rising! Musicians United To Benefit the Victims of the Station Nightclub Fire.” VH1 is making a concert special from the evening’s performances.

On February 25, in Providence, Rhode Island, John Rich of Big & Rich, and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, host a multi-artist concert bash to raise money for the Station Family Fund which was founded by survivors to provide treatment and rehabilitation relief. Gretchen Wilson, Dierks Bentley, Alabama’s Randy Owen, Kellie Pickler will represent the country side of the fence. Staind‘s Aaron Lewis, Tesla, Winger, Boston’s Tom Scholz and Gary Pihl, Kevin Max, Carmine Appice’s SLAM, and Stryper will join Snider and the Twisted Sister crew. The goal is to honor the anniversary of those lost, and make life a bit easier for those still recovering. Tickets are available through Ticket Master.

On Sunday, March 23, VH1 Classic and VH1 will air Aftermath: The Station Fire Five Years Later, a one-hour special of show highlights.
