Few hip-hop artists do the human beat-box thing as well as Biz Markie. So consider it a boon for edutainment that the crazed old school MC was one of the artists who helped kick-off the new preschoolers show Yo Gabba Gabba! The Nick Jr. program has a decidedly hip slant. The Shins, Elijah Wood, Tony Hawk, Sean Kingston, and Rahzel all crop up on the first few episodes. Have a look at the Biz in action below, and take some time out of your day to enjoy his “Just a Friend” video over here.
Adrien Grenier seems like an all around good guy. Sure he plays a Hollywood playboy on Entourage, but off screen all signs point to him being cool, down to earth and obviously pretty hot. He even gets bonus points for making a documentary about meeting his dad for the first time – cuz every lady loves a tearjerker. So why then is this environmentalist spending soooo much time with the unnatural disaster that is Paris Hilton? For someone who so far has only made pretty awesome life choices, it seems like bad judgment is finally plaguing the guy. The two have been spotted hanging out together 24/7 in Malibu, and he’s apparently covering her in some documentary he’s making. You know what that means – these two are totally, definitely, maybe, kind of getting it on. [TMZ, NY Daily News. Image: Getty]
It’s too bad Foxy isn’t promoting anything right now, cuz she’s got enough juicy bad press going at the moment to sell millions of albums. The rapper was arrested yesterday in New Jersey for giving false information to police after she was pulled over for failing to yield at a stop sign while driving her SUV. When she finally gave her correct info it was revealed that she was driving on a suspended license. She was taken into custody by the cops, given seven(!) traffic tickets and released with a court date in place.
Foxy was recently overheard telling someone that she is pregnant and getting married in September. Her future hubby should start chauffeuring her around or that baby better learn to drive real fast. Foxy needs a driver – and, apparently, a lawyer. [Image: Getty]

Pretty, pretty Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger stopped by MTV studios to tape TRL on Wednesday and she had a series of facial expressions in tow. Unfortunately none of them were smiles. Seriously: check out the gallery below for today’s dose of misery. The closest she comes is floppy-mouthed toothy thing, but I’m pretty sure she’s just scratching her bottom lip with her top teeth. Sad. She’s totally crying on the inside. Now she knows how we felt when Asia won.

The Kanye West and 50 Cent album-release rivalry has taken a twangy turn: country music’s Kenny Chesney is also set to release an album on Sept. 11. Arrggh! No really: arrggh — the name of Kenny’s disc is Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates. Anyway, Kenny’s following the suit of his release-date counterparts by talking some smack. It’s in his genteel manner, but still: smack. Says Kenny:
“It’s funny how with every record that comes out, we’re aware of the urban [competition], and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist. Until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200.“
Awww. Poor maligned and forgotten country-music superstar. So this is why every cowboy sings his sad, sad song! Anyway, another crap-talker in the pot is another crap-talker I’m not rooting for. Ani DiFranco for the win! [Entertainment Weekly / Images: Getty]
Rapper Method Man - whose name is synonymous with all things marijuana – is going to be speaking out on his favorite topic. No big surpise, seeing as the Wu-Tang Clan member has rapped about weed, made movies about getting high, and named an album in honor of days associated with the drug. But after being arrested in May for possession of marijuana – obviously – the rapper will be preaching about the evils of getting high to an audience of fifteen New York City teens as part of his plea bargain.
Method Man – whose name even references a slang term for his fave drug – is apparently “thrilled” to do his part for the community. What we wouldn’t give to be a
joint in his pocket fly on the wall for that learning session. [TMZ. Image: Getty]
Mr. Mom Kevin Federline continued covering Hollywood in legal papers this weekend, serving Promises Treatment Center – Brit’s rehab home in Malibu – with a subpoena. I kinda want to see him serve Britney’s new “man” Criss Angel some legal papers, just to see the magician try to make then disappear. This brings the total K-Fed subpoena count up to four (including assistants Shannon Funk and Alli Sims and bodyguard Daimon Shippen), which gave the guy something to celebrate in Vegas this weekend, where he macked ladies and danced like the
tool awesome dad that he is. Meanwhile Brit’s attempting to get back at K-Fed, but apparently her lawyer, Lauren Wasser, wants nothing to do with the pop star and is trying to hand her off to another legal adviser. Anyone else see a trend here? [Image: Getty]
