Springsteen Live Tonight on VH1!!!

The BossWhere’s the best place to see Bruce Springsteen? Don’t make me actually write down the answer – you know it’s Jersey. Those fans without tickets to this evening’s E Street Band bash at Continental Arena in East Rutherford (which is most of the people on the planet) can get a fix. At 8 pm EST, we’re cutting into the show and pulling out a couple performances for you. One tune is definitely “Radio Nowhere,” the blistering firebomb from the singer’s new Magic. The other is a Springsteen classic that the guys are keeping us guessing about. We’ll find out when they tear into it.

And don’t forget: Tivo fiends need to set their controls for the all-Bruce marathon that’s taking place today on VH1 Classic. The channel is awash in documentaries, live performances, “Storytellers” footage, and other great stuff.

If you’re looking to get tickets to some of the E Street shows, the tour rolls on at these stops.

What classic song do you think the band will play tonight on VH1?

Tour Survival Guide: Brandi Carlile

Brandi Carlile
Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers about life on the road. VH1?s You Oughta Know artist Brandi Carlile tells us about missing dogs, swallowing gum, and her groupies.

Gumming Up the Works
I used to really like Orbitz, but now I like that gum Stride. It lasts forever. It?s like the everlasting gobstopper in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. [I chew gum on stage] all the time. I get so much sh*t for it because I?m always chewing on stage and people can hear you chewing gum, which is not a good thing. I?m a total gum swallower too.

The Dog Whisperer
[The hardest part of touring is] not having animals around. I feel so much more like myself when there are animals around. If I go to the park [while I?m on tour] and I see squirrels I?m like, ?Oh thank god there?s animals.? If I could bring a dog on the road I would be so happy. Someday I will take my dog on the road.

Marc Anthony’s Ex Talks J. Lo’s Bun, Oven

J. LoThough J. Lo is keeping tight-lipped on the subject of her pregnancy (see: taciturn appearances on TRL, Good Morning America), there’s someone else who isn’t: husband Marc Anthony‘s ex-wife. Perezhilton.com is reporting that Anthony’s ex, and the mother of his two children, granted an interview with the Spanish-language media during which the former Miss Universe reportedly sniffed, “I suppose they’ll be very happy together.” Lopez’s probable pregnancy has been the source of much speculation since the singer started wearing lose fitting clothing and tented dresses.

And speaking of J. Lo’s recent closet criticism, check out the looks she’s sported throughout her career — from Fly Girl to Mrs. Marc Anthony, and everything in between.

Lindsay Reveals All After Rehab

lilo108.jpgIt’s kind of unclear where exactly Lindsay Lohan is at the moment – but one thing’s for certain, she is NOT at rehab. The actress has transitioned out of Cirque Lodge and is currently in a “non-residential program” in Utah where she will continue her treatment before heading off to shoot her new movie Dare to Love Me. Next stop after that – back to Utah for more rehab luv! Linds has already started blabbing about her new self in the latest issues of OK! and In Touch. The girl gives the same ol’ story of every other rehabilitated starlet (remember Paris’ pile of BS after jail?). To summarize:

New boyfriend, didn’t sleep with old guy, cleaned common area, never going to night clubs again, real friends don’t pressure me to go out, hit rock bottom, going to Africa, love siblings, Karma is a bitch, I am woman hear me roar. Also I am a genius-super talented-God’s gift to the earth actor. So there.

Check out pics of Lilo’s new 25-year old snowboarder boyfriend Riley and enjoy personal rehab pics taken by Lindsay herself. And yeah, we wish the newly clean starlet the best. [Perez Hilton/DListed. Image: Getty]

Britney’s Behind the Bar, Ya’ll!

brit109.jpgWe can not – must not – try to understand or explain the insane life choices of Britney Spears. Instead all we can do is sit and watch and marvel. And now, we can have her make us a drink too! Yes, Brit is desperate for a career change, and last week the starlet applied to be a BARTENDER at the Cameo Bar at LA’s Viceroy Hotel. Filled out an application and everything. You know – to be someone who serves customers drinks and listens to their problems. Right up her alley, obviously.

This is the perfect job for a washed-up millionaire mom of two. She probably even has a signature drink she wants you to enjoy! Her recipe:

Britney’s Night Out in a Glass

  • 5 shots of generic, cheap house vodka
  • 1 squirt of Coca Cola
  • 7 packets Taco Bell Border Sauce – Hot Flavor
  • Shaken, not stirred
  • Two Marlboro Light Menthol cigarettes crumbled on top as garnish (it’s minty ya’ll!)
  • ENJOY!

10:07: Holla! Guess will.i.am did the best “ra-ta-ta-ta,” but that whole spray of Missy imitators was sweet. Flipping it and reversing it…and what about Missy’s Prince shirt?

10:15: Wonder if Eve does look like a Halle Berry poster?Timbaland at VH1?s Hip Hop Honors 2007

10:18: Nelly F. definitely learned a thing or two from her time spent at Timbaland U.

10:20: I’m thinking Mary J’s Chevy tune is hipper than T.I.‘s Chevy tune.

10:24: Diddy rocking Teddy. If you think he’s red-zoning, punch up “My Prerogative” and pretend you’re back in the Arsenio era.

Ne-Yo at VH1?s Hop Hop Honors 200710:30: Dude, when’s Doug E. Fresh getting his day in the sun?

10:30: Let us know if you have Superhead‘s number in yr celly.

10:40: How many of you guys are downloading “No Diggity” right now?

10:44: Looks like Virginia has been good to Teddy Riley. Zoom Zoom.

10:47: When Busta‘s adrenaline is up in the trillions, we got trouble. Guess that Tribe salute is going to rock.

10: 50: Anyone here ever mix that wild style mess that Tracy just talked about? Ketchup?

10:59: Lots of old school everything in the Wild Style nod, but leave it to KRS-One to bring Jena 6 into the action.

11:07: Brooklyn is in the house. What’s the cooler WHODINI joint, “Friends” or “Freaks”?

11:11: How many Mr. Magic fans out there? Give mom a call and find out what the story is.

Nelly at VH1?s Hop Hop Honors 200711:13: “If you need a beat, take one of mine” – THAT’S how they shared back then.

11:19: Could these dances have come out out of ATL?

11:22: Keitel rhyming – guess hip-hop has gone into weird places.

11:25: The first disc Snoop bought was “Ring My Bell.” What’s the first one you bought?

11: 28: Quick vote: Does Ice-T still have it?Snoop and Pharrell at VH1?s Hop Hop Honors 2007

11:35: That’s some major bling on Snoop‘s mic hand. They got a safe in the green room?

11:51: No one’s got a voice like Q-Tip.

11:56: Lots on energy going down here. Just about time for some label to swoop in and kick a new disc by Tribe, yes?

11:59: And we out. Who’s up for the Gotti story? Talk amongst yourselves…

Phife Dawg Fights the Good Fight

tribe.jpg

A Tribe Called Quest is being celebrated for their ingenuity and creativity tonight on Hip Hop Honors, but one of its members, Phife Dawg, gets extra respect for the courage he’s brought to his battle against diabetes. The ailment afflicts a big chunk of the African American population; reports tell us that 13 percent of blacks over the age of 20 suffer with the condition. Phife, one of the Tribe’s founding members, is fighting the condition with dialysis, and a recent switch in treatments has made him feel much better, one of the reasons he was able to participate in the Honors show.

Diddy Wants to be a Daddy – Again

diddy1008.jpgDiddy should maybe consider going back to the name Puff Daddy, seeing as he’s got more babies than he does bling these days. The hip hop mogul just officially added another kid to his brood, 15-month old Chance. Diddy fathered the little girl with Atlanta-based hottie Sarah Chapman, and the baby was born while his live-in girlfriend Kim Porter was pregnant with their twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James. DNA tests have confirmed that Chance is indeed a Combs kid, and Diddy has now said, “At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child. Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.”

Isn’t Chance lucky? She probably already has a fridge of Cristal chilling in preparation for her 21st birthday. Her crib is now encrusted with diamonds. The next Making the Band boys will have to walk to Atlanta just to bring her cheesecake from Brooklyn. Maybe Diddy has room for another kid to add to his pack? Sure I’m not related by blood or anything, but I’m really well behaved, look adorable in Sean John clothing and appreciate the value of a (thousand) dollar(s). Think about it Diddy! I mean – Daddy.
