Who said a prison sentence screws stuff up? T.I., who will begin serving a jail sentence next spring for weapons charges, is busy beefing up his career before heading behind bars. The rapper just signed a three-film deal, and will begin making a crime drama with Matt Dillon titled Bone Deep shortly. But that’s not enough! T.I.P. will also be promoting his new album Paper Trails as well as his MTV documentary style reality show. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. T.I.’s all about his future as the next Tom Cruise, telling MTV, “I’m just looking forward to continuing my success in the film industry. I want to do all kinds of movies. I want to do romantic comedies, action movies, dramas ? tons of different things.”
We’re sure jail will provide the perfect inspiration for all those future roles!
The video for Lloyd and Lil Wayne‘s summer jam “Girls Around the World” has debuted, and as she told us last month, Flavor of Love 3‘s Black is all up in it. She moves sensuously as light shines out of her eyes and…uh, that’s about it. But at least she looks hot! Not many girls pull off the laser-beams-from-the-eyes style with such grace. Check the full clip below. [via Idolator]

The web was buzzing yesterday over a rumor that Lil Wayne (whose new album also has mouths flapping) had checked himself into a Florida rehab. It’s not that far-fetched, seeing as Weezy often raps about his various drugs of choice and is known to be a fan of sizzurp. But a Cash Money rep’s only response to the rumor, when called, was “Hell nah.”
Meanwhile, Weezy’s ex Karrine “Superhead” Steffans sent Perez Hilton a frantic message today accusing her current boyfriend, Darius McCrary (best known as Eddie Winslow on Family Matters) of attempting to run her over with his car (among other things). Eek. Such serious stuff for the former lovers. Maybe they need each other now more than ever?
We’ve been seeing an awful lot of Christina Aguilera lately, and it looks like she’s back to her old Xtina ways. Several times in the past few weeks the new mom has been spotted tottering out of clubs, in some cases being lead out of a bar by her hubby Jordan Bratman, or a pal. But the new mom is coming to her own defense, telling Access Hollywood that she needs to blow off some grown-up steam.
“I spend all day with my son and once in a while if I want to go out and have a mommy-daddy night with my husband, I am more than allowed to do that.? We imagine a mommy-daddy night might entail drinking a lot of adult juice, having a tantrum on the dancefloor, then someone driving her Big Wheel home. Then she and daddy will get ready for bed by taking their clothes off and hugging in various positions.
Yep, we’ve got another new program rolling down the pike. That Metal Show is a 30-minute romp through the extra loud realm of high hair, spandex and parental warning stickers. Three experts, Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine, and Don Jamieson host the thing. They blast the music, argue over the music’s key moments, and hit the street to play some pranks on fellow metal heads.
The show airs on VH1 Classic, and it films in Manhattan on the afternoon of June 11. The tickets are free. Write us a note that says you’d like a pair at firstname.lastname@example.org. Type “Metal” in the subject line so we know you love to rock. Include name, age, phone number, and recent photo. We’ll tell you the exact location when we contact you.
It’s been a minute, but the original boy band is back. Check out our sneak clip for their brand new video, “Summertime.” Hint: it involves a shirtless Joey and a sweaty Jordan. Check back on Sunday at 2 p.m. to watch the whole video, and see what Jon, Jordan, Donnie, Joey and Danny have been up to.
Everybody knows Usher‘s a happily married family man (as you can learn from several of the tracks off Here I Stand). But we also know that a while back, Ush and Chili were pretty serious. Usher even bought the TLC hottie a rock, but broke it off before the two were engaged. A few months back Chili confessed to the world that Usher was “the one that got away. I love him very much and I will always love him. I don?t know how you love someone that deeply and just stop loving them.”
Recently, Usher was asked about his ex’s remarks in an interview with RWDmag.com. Usher had somem rather harsh words for Chili:
I mean, I think it?s a little unrealistic, I?m married [laughs], I?m not a boy. It?s been three years past, you know? But we all have unrealistic goals too. Like shoot, I will always forever love Katie Holmes and Halle Berry. I don?t feel anyway about it. It does appear maybe to be a plug for something. She got a record coming or something?

15. Flavor Flav – Flavor of Love
Sure he may not be conventionally sexy, but what other guy has successful made groups of women fall all over him (and in love with him) three different times? Flavor Flavvvvvvvvvvvvv!
This month, Blender magazine caught up with the industry-saving pop star Leona Lewis, our very own You Oughta Know Artist. We already knew we loved the “Bleeding Love” singer, but we found out a few other details that only further cemented her staying power as the pop star of our hearts. Not only did she grow up tough in an East London where her family struggled to make ends meet, she hardly drinks (“I’ve tasted champagne, which is gross. And I tasted wine, which I don’t like.”) and she always wears undies: “I don’t wear little miniskirts and low cut tops. If you want to show your bits off, it’s up to you.”
Celebrities LOVE sloppy seconds – the minute some star dumps a lover, another famous freak is there to pick up the tossed trash. It’s LA’s own little green movement: Reduce the amount of single celebs out there; Reuse each other’s exes, then Recycle them when the relationship ends! They may not be saving the planet, but they sure are saving celebs from never-ending singledom (which is obvs more important).
Kanye West is the latest celeb to score off of a rejected romance, as the rap diva’s been spotted getting cozy with Nick Cannon‘s ex-fiancee, model Selita Ebanks. The pair were cuddling at the NYC club Tenjune and attempted to discreetly exit together. “They were trying to be inconspicuous,” says a token spy, “but they were smiling and walking real close, and they hopped in a waiting car together laughing and took off.”
Even worse is Cam Diaz, who had dinner Sunday night with Jennifer Aniston‘s ex-boy toy, Paul Sculfor. Jen, as we all know, is currently busy making out with Cam’s ex John Mayer in pools across America. And with that, Hollywood waste is eliminated!
