Heidi Montag’s Cheap-Ass Video Shoot

Heidi?s New Music Video

Heidi Montag and her boy loser Spencer Pratt are never boring, especially when what they’re doing is so downright pathetic! And honestly, what is sadder than having your boyfriend/manager/self-esteem ruiner shoot your music video (for her single “Higher”) with a hand-held camera (while playing your single on a boombox) as you prance around the ocean in a bikini, flailing your awkward arms? NOTHING! Check out video of the two “working” on the shoot and just try not to cringe. I hope Lauren and Audrina watched this and had a good laugh – and then shot it a couple times for The Hills.?

Britney’s Supporters Say Give Her Less

Britney_SpearsMySpace — it’s not just for hooking up and spying on exes anymore. Now you can save pop stars, or at least that’s what a few concerned former employees of Britney Spears would like to think. BeProactiveToHelp was started by a former back-up dancer, bodyguard and makeup artist who are imploring Britney’s fans to refrain from purchasing her upcoming album Blackout. Referring to Britney as a “very broken woman,” this Coalition of the Concerned is asking fans to put pressure on record executives, Britney’s management and publishing company and MTV in order to discourage coverage. “We feel it best to put some weight on these entities we feel need to be held responsible for allowing Britney, and any ‘over the edge’ entertainer to come back to work when clearly not yet ready to hold down a job.”

If you agree that the pop tart’s career is in a tailspin but still want to give her new tunes a listen, we’re streaming her new album here, a week before it comes out. Check it out, and let us know what you think.

We Should Watch Dancing with the Stars

And we thought a show full of Z-List starts dancing the samba would be boring! Marie Osmond fainted on last night’s Dancing with the Stars as she waited for her score with her partner after doing some sultry dance. We didn’t actually watch the show, but we could marvel at this video clip over and over again – not just for her fall, but for the awkward moment where the audience laughs after her collapse. This isn’t the Donny & Marie Show, peeps! Girl’s like 60-years old now. Even better, the singer apparently responded “Oh crap” when she came to, which is odd because we thought Mormons couldn’t say such awful things. Osmond masters the ‘faint and rally’ just moments after her fall, and is frighteningly amped to “get her scores.” She deserves a gazillion “10s” after that spectacle. Who cares if her moves are good? She just spiced up my great-grandmother’s favorite show! [via People]

Paris Hilton And Her Frozen Dogs

paris1022.jpgParis Hilton is bringing new meaning to the term ‘frigid bitch’ (which you know, she isn’t – she’s more of a hot ho) with her latest plan to freeze herself and her dogs at the Cryonics Institute so that they can be brought back to life after they die. Or as Paris tells it, “It’s so cool. Almost all the cells in the body are still alive when death is pronounced. And if you’re immediately cooled, you can be perfectly preserved. My life could be extended by hundreds and thousands of years.”

Yes, what you’re thinking is correct. It doesn’t matter if we cure poverty, hunger, terrorism and disease. The biggest threat to humanity is attempting to infest out planet for “hundreds and thousands of years!” Shouldn’t we just give up now? Armageddon is coming and it’s in size 10 stilettos and bad makeup. [DListed. Getty]

Spice Wars: Is The Reunion Turning Ugly?

spice_girls

The beloved Spice Girls have stopped having Eddie Murphy‘s babies, dancing with stars and cheering on benched soccer-playing husbands long enough to put together a reunion, but it might not be all sugar and….uh, spice. While filming a video for one of two brand new tracks they’re releasing, things in Spice World got tense. “The girls were so tired and Emma was crying as the shoot just went on and on. Geri kept slowing things down by meditating and doing strange spiritual stuff,” a source told UK paper The Sun. In addition, Posh allegedly requested an assistant follow her around the video set with fruit and champagne, which seems like the least likely claim, given that we don’t think she ingests anything.

The Girls had their own spin on the video shoot for “Headlines (Friendship Never Ends),” with Posh telling their website she was just happy to see her fellow bandmates: “What’s really wonderful is just being able to hang out with the girls like this again.” In a terribly classy marketing move, their Greatest Hits album will be available exclusively at Victoria’s Secrets in the United States.

Britney’s Best Day Ever!

britneyspears1022.jpgPhew ya’ll! Britney’s visitation with her kids has been restored, and the rotten-toothed threesome was spotted on Saturday tooting around Studio City in mommy’s Mercedes with her parenting counselor in the passenger seat (and a giant Starbucks in her hand). This alone begs the question – does Britney know how to do anything with those kids BUT drive them around in her car? Doesn’t she have a swing set she can strap them too? The singer’s super day didn’t start until after the kiddies left her mansion the following morning, when she was finally able to live the life that only exists for us regular folks in dreams. While most of America was doing laundry and scrubbing stains out of their carpets yesterday, Britney was ingesting various sweet things and cooking herself in a tanning bed.? Her day kind of makes you realize that screwed-up millionaires really do have it better, even if their bodies are just vessels packed with wrinkled skin and sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.

50 Cent Gets Illmatic: “Nas Sucks”

NasLots of controversy still swirling around the title of Nas‘ forthcoming disc, Nigger. Some people, like Common, support the decision. “Nas is always bringing something new, something to talk about,” he recently told MTV News. Common cited previous agitprop artists like Gil Scott-Heron as forerunners to such political maneuvers. But 50 Cent weighed in with a comparatively blunt opinion. “Nas sucks,” he blasted. “That’s a stupid name…it’s for shock value.”

The CD comes out on 12/11. Have you absorbed its impact yet? What do you think about Nas’ title?

Jermaine Dupri Takes on Timberlake

jdjt.jpgJermaine Dupri is releasing an autobiography (why?) about his life, natch, entitled “Young, Rich and Dangerous.” Inside the pages he takes a little dig at America’s favorite pelvic-gyrating pop star Justin Timberlake, writing “I think Justin Timberlake is a talented performer. But he’s very ordinary-looking. He could be any skinny white kid from the suburbs of Orlando. You could go to the mall and find another Justin. He doesn’t make his style interesting even when he’s onstage. To me, he just doesn’t look like a star.”

Woah there! Does JD really want to start beef with the TimberKing over – of all things -? his looks? Last time we check he wasn’t ranking that high on the sexy scale either (and isn’t he like, a lot shorter than Janet?) Sure Dupri was worth $60 million in 2006, but JT’s catching up – according to Forbes his tour alone brought in $41 million for April to August. Maybe Jermaine should put down his pen and head out to some mall in Orlando and find himself the next Justin .?? [NYP. Images: Getty]

Kid Rock Loves Waffles & Beat Downs

kidrockmug.jpgAwwwwwww. Doesn’t Kid Rock look adorable in his mugshot? Just some sweet old down home guy, enjoying his Grilled Bacon Texas Cheesesteak Melt Plate at an Atlanta Waffle House with some pals, chatting about football and family. Until - duh duh duhhh - some random waffle hungry dude dared speak to a woman in Kid’s entourage! The chat (which currently sounds fairly innocent) led the singer and his entourage to go all Tommy Lee on the guy, Harlem DeJon Akins, who “suffered minor cuts and bruises after punching and breaking a window at the Waffle House.” It sounds like the glass did all the real dirty work but the cops still arrested Kid Rock anyway and charged him with battery. No word on if he was released yet on bail but we hope it happens soon – his food is probably getting cold. [VH1 News]
