Diddy and Cassie: Crazy in Love

diddy-cassie-1210.jpgSo much for Diddy getting back together with one if his baby-mammas. The rap mogul and lady lover has cut off ties with his many girls on the side and is now 100% committed to dating his prodigy Cassie. A source revealed that, ?She recently broke up with her boyfriend…They?re holed up together in Miami, very low-key. He?s really in love with her.?

The ‘Diddy and Cassie are doing it’ rumors have been swirling for a while, even though the singer denied it as late as last week. She said, “No I haven?t ever dated Diddy. I?m his artist, and we are actually friends. We really are friends. I am fortunate to have that connection with him, we just happened to have really hit it off as friends, but that?s it.”

Or is it?

Remy Ma Bashes Lil Kim After Freestyle Diss

remy-ma-1207.jpgAfter former jail bird Lil Kim bashed the soon-to-be locked up Remy Ma in a freestyle, the rapper spoke up about Kim’s diss on a Sirius radio show with DJ Kay Slay. Remy said, “That little boy better live [sic] me alone. She was saying ‘I’m going at [Remy] hard, she go hard to me, so I go hard back.’ I feel like if that’s going at me hard, like seriously, I’m just gonna chill out. That’s crazy to me.”

A “little boy?” We love it! Fight on, ladies! Remy continued the slamfest by picking on Kim’s love of all things surgically enhanced. “Like, how could you be conceited, you don’t even like your own face. What are you talking about? Are you serious…You don’t like your nose, you don’t like your cheeks, you don’t like your chin, you don’t like your skin color, you don’t like your t*ts, you don’t like your stomach, you don’t like your teeth…this chic has more ghostwriters than Foxy [Brown].”

When Kim explained her actions earlier in the week, she revealed that she once was cool with Remy but recent actions have created a rift between the two stars. She went on to say, “I’m the hottest bitch out. I’m real cocky these days, huh? I’m loving it.” So are we Kim! Almost as much as we’re gonna love Remy’s sure-to-be sassy comeback.

It’s Kissmas Time…

We decided to get you something special this holiday season. You can’t get it in a store, and you can’t fit it in a box. In fact, the only place you’re going to find it is on VH1 Classic at 9pm tonight. That’s when KISS takes over your television set for 27 hours straight. The costumed rockers are about to drop Kissology: Volume 3 1992-2000, and our KISSmas fest lets you check out some of the DVD’s footage a full week before the disc hits stores. Longtime fans will recall that we covered the band completely at 2006′s Rock Honors. That’s still a good place for newcomers to hang out.

2007′s Craziest: Britney’s Bald Buzz

britney-bald.jpg Some gossip stories are too big to forget. We?re counting down the 20 biggest, baddest, most ridiculous and saddest celeb scandals of the year. You?ll get a new one posted every day.

Just when we thought we had seen it all, Britney Spears went way farther off the deep end than anyone expected. Marrying K-Fed was one thing, but shaving her head and then getting some lips tattooed on her wrist? Holy crap! Back in February it seemed, well, effing insane. Now we know better – that bizarre Friday night would just be the first of one of the many inexplicable things America’s ex-sweetheart would do this year that blew our minds. Her makeunder went down just days after she spent 24 hours in a Caribbean rehab facility. Back home in LA something (un)clicked – besides the sound of razors against her head – and she headed to Esther’s Haircutting Studio on a Friday night, where the owner opened the store and allowed Brit to shave her hair herself. Newly bald, she then headed over to a tattoo parlor for some fresh ink. The starlet told people in the shop that she was “sick of people touching her” and acted “distraught and disturbed.” Sadly, not much has changed – besides her hair. [KABC]

American Idol Sex Tape Scandal

A screen shot from Jessica Sierra?s sex tape.Our love for American Idol’s Jessica Sierra has now turned into a sad, uncomfortable love. You know, it’s like the difference between driving by a car accident and staring at the scene with fascination, and driving by a car accident, staring at it with fascination but then realizing the people in it are seriously f*cked and feeling horrible about it. At first, when she was getting drunk and doing crazy shit we enjoyed it, but then last week – when Jessica got arrested, offered a cop a BJ if he let her off and then puked in a jail cell when he didn’t – we started feeling a little nervous. And now the first screen shot of Jess from her leaked sex tape has been posted by TMZ.com, and it’s made us feel all sorts of sad and yucky. The pic shows Sierra naked in bathtub smoking a cigarette, which is obviously a bad sign. Apparently the tape also has the Idol runner-up getting it on in various positions in a dingy hotel room. Blegh. We can’t stop staring, but we’re not enjoying this wreck at all. The singer is set to star on VH1′s new show Celebrity Rehab, which begins airing in January. Let’s hope that she signs back up for a second season.
