Jamie-Lynn’s Shotgun Wedding

finalinvite.jpg

Hey ya’ll! Jamie-Lynn Spears, the 16-year old mama-to-be (and Brit’s sis) is getting married! Her main man, Casey Aldridge, 18, has allegedly proposed to his knocked up sweetheart, though there’s no word on a ring or a date. Who cares! She’s walking down the aisle way before Britney did, which must be tearing her big sis up. There’s nothing like being upstaged – at everything! – by one’s little sis, but J-L’s got it down. And you know what that means – her custody case is gonna be that much crazier, and probably happen before she turns 20.? [Us]

Kimora & Russell Divorce for the 100th Time

russells.jpg

How many times can one couple announce their divorce? We’ve lost count, but we’re guessing Kimora Lee Simmons and her super-mogul ex-hubby Russell have done it, oh, a gazillion times, including today. We get it! You guys split up! Didn’t this happen in like 2006? Aren’t you both busy getting pregnant and doing yoga with your new (and might we add, much hotter) significant others? Earlier this month, Kimora said, “I’m in the paper every single week ? that I had a fight with my ex-husband, or that I was mad at one of his girlfriends, or that I’m pregnant, or that I demand Fiji water ? Lies upon lies upon lies.”

Oh Kimora. Admit it – you like being in the paper every week. Are we the only ones who suspect that the divorce reports pop back up every time our girl needs some publicity? Or were ya’ll too busy buying her new perfume – which launched last week – to notice?

Celebs Set Bizarre World Records

tommy_lee_fall_out_boy.jpg

Tommy Lee got up to a different kind of mischief in the skies recently. Undoubtedly already a member of the Mile High Club, Mr. Lee commissioned the first ever tattoo administered at a high altitude. The Motley Crue drummer had a peacock tattooed on his thigh for the entirety of a five hour flight. Ouch.

With this, and the recent news that Fall Out Boy were attempting to play a concert on every continent to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, it got us thinking about some of the other records that celebs have already set, whether Guinness acknowledges them or not.

American Idol: It’s Over, Chikezie

chizeke-lead.jpg

With over 30 million votes cast, last night we saw one of our top 10 American Idol finalists go home. But in true Idol fashion, before the loser was revealed, every contestant was subject to some mild humiliation. In between promotions for their corporate sponsors, we saw a surprising bottom three get ?sent to the stools? (ew?), as well as some neat ads from their corporate sponsors and tax-deductible contributions. Light-hearted phone-in questions and a guest visit from former Idol contestant Kimberly Locke did little to quell the bubbling paranoia and anxiety amongst our final 10 as they counted down to the moment of elimination. Let?s take a look:

DUI in CAL: Richie Sambora Busted

It was a rough ride for Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora last night. The Jersey boy was driving a lost highway in L.A. when the cops pulled him over for swerving erratically in his black Hummer. When they found that the rocker couldn’t pass field sobriety tests, they carted him away. Three women, one of whom was Sambora’s 10-year-old daughter, Ava, were in the car at the time. The 48-year-old has had both alcoholic and romantic woes of late. He was in and out of rehab in 2007, and has gone through breakups with wife Heather Locklear and girlfriend Denise Richards.

George Michael and Mary J. Cover Stevie

What’s better than a George Michael and Mary J. Blige duet on Stevie Wonder‘s magnificent “As”? How about hundreds of Georges and Marys hanging out in a club, singing Stevie Wonder’s “As.” That’s right — in this duet, never before available in the US, Mary and George are dressed in their best, getting down on the dancefloor. Want to give the tune another listen? Don’t forget we’re streaming George’s brand new TwentyFive an entire week before its release. Enjoy!

Usher’s Wife: Video Sabotage!

Uh oh – all was peaceful after their baby was born, but Mrs. Usher is back and churning up the drama all over again. Tameka Foster, who married Usher this fall, was allegedly very unhappy that her man handpicked singer/songwriter hottie Keri Hilson to play his love interest in the video for his new song “Love in the Club.” A spy on set revealed that “Tameka is very insecure. Even in rehearsals she was weird and clearly not happy that Keri is so gorgeous. Tameka threw a lot of attitude.”

She even went so far as to uglify Keri (and possibly risk the hotness of her hubby’s video) by dressing her down and not allowing her to bring her hairdresser on set. “The day of the shoot, Tameka dressed Keri very badly – she looked like an extra,” revealed the source. Tameka also apparently banned Usher’s longtime choreographer from the video set, and she’s had strained relations with his mom in the past as well. How long is it gonna take for Usher to notice that she might be, uh, isolating him out of her own insecurities?? [NYP]

American Idol: Archuleta On His Way Home?

david_lead.jpg

Last night on American Idol we heard songs written in our top ten contestant?s respective birth years. Despite Paula?s festive sequined and satin gloved ensemble, the tone of the evening was more ?couldn?t care less? than ?party dress.? A cranky Randy was harder on the contestants than ever, matching Simon?s pessimism in response to a string of blas? performances. Thankfully, David Cook was able to save the snoozefest, giving a maybe-pregnant Carly Smithson and a maybe-not-as-talented-as-we-once-thought David Archuleta a run for their money.
