Missed Rilo Kiley at their sold-out Webster Hall shows? So did we, which only compounded our case of the Mondays. The only thing that could salvage our day? Having the adventurous indie darlings over to rock the 20th floor offices of VH1. Which is precisely what they did this morning. To promote their brand new Under the Blacklight, the Kiley stopped by to play us three tracks off their latest.
The band launched into their slinky, sex-worker single “The Moneymaker,” with the lovely Jenny Lewis nailing every note, despite her self-confessed sleepiness. “This is the first time this combination has ever happened,” the floppy-hatted Lewis dead-panned, gesturing to her coffee and her performance. Next up, the band played a bongo-laced version of “Dreamworld,” with co-singer Blake Senett on vocals, before finishing up with the impossibly tiny Lewis warmly belting out the glorious “Silver Lining” (watch the video here). Before they jetted off to their Conan appearance, the band hung around to chat and eat cupcakes. Pop stars — they’re just like us! Check out their latest record here.

Of course it could! She could have uglier, faker extensions. She could – nope, that’s it. Her life has officially hit rock bottom over a 48-hour span. If you don’t believe us, check this shizz out:
- Bad: On Friday that massive bodyguard, Tony Barretto, who served as a surprise witness in Brit’s custody battle revealed the gory details about life with the singer, which apparently included drug overdoses, whiskey kept in the pantry and her own made-up language. It’s-Ay Ritney-Bay, Itch-Bay!
- Totes Bad: Also on Friday, she was charged with a hit and run after she rammed her Mercedes into a parked car in August (see video above). Brit was spotted that day leaving her lawyer’s office in tears.
- Seriously Badtastic: That same bodyguard does a second interview and claims Brit talked about suicide and ate sushi for breakfast. Her craziness clearly has a range.
- Possibly a Good Thing?: This weekend her lawyers and friends(she has friends?) apparently tried to get Britney back into rehab. She did leave LA this weekend, but is supposedly in Atlanta and not detoxing.
- It Only Gets Worse: The bodyguard kept his blabbing going on The Today Show this morning. Stay in Atlanta, Brit! We hear the food their is really
good fried. You’ll love it!

There was a moment, maybe a few days actually, where America watched the silhouettes of U2 raging from the TV screen and said “What’s that song?” Hard to imagine that the earth-shaking “Vertigo” was a mystery tune for a while, but one thing’s certain: it became known damn quick. Those iTunes campaigns have introduced us to some very cool tracks.
The latest is Feist’s wildly catchy “1,2,3,4.” Though the Canadian indie chanteuse isn’t as well known as Bono, her stock is on the rise. During the last few days, the Web search queries for “iPod nano song” and “iPod nano commercial” have
tripdupled risen significantly. Yes, the world is getting a grip on this occasional member of the acclaimed Broken Social Scene. The quickest way to fall into Feistville, however, is to check our You Oughta Know pages, where vids, tour dates and lots of other info lives. And if you’re seeking a sweet live take on “1,2,3,4″ and other Feistian ditties, come down to our “Unplugged” session. You’re probably wondering what she’s knows about music, too, right? A couple months ago we gave her a blindfold test. She did just fine.

Who knew that the only person to come to Britney Spears’ defense after her VMAs dance disaster would be Diddy? The rapper only had nice things to say about his pal, which kind of makes us love him more (Britney, however – is still lame), Combs said, ?The times that I was around her, in her defense, she don?t (sic) drink any alcohol. I didn?t see her drink. You know I was hospitable, I offered everybody a drink and you know she had water. ?Everybody has their own way.?
In regards to Brit staying up until sunrise just hours before she was supposed prove to the world that she was back, Diddy replied, “Some people deal with, you know, nerves, they can?t go to sleep and you don?t know what the problem is. To just say ?Oh, her career is over she [is] done,? to discount all her work beforehand because she is a human being ? we all go through hard times.?
Damn, Diddy actually makes sense. We’ll leave Britney’s career alone for a second, but it still seems fair to rag on her for sucking on a pacifier, doesn’t it? Even Diddy can’t deny that. [Access Hollywood. Image: Getty]

The Lady Marmalade singer may not grace the blogosphere often, but when she does, she delivers! Mariah, Christina and Beyonce could learn a little something from Ms. LaBelle’s take no prisoners – or, no audience members – attitude. Check out this video of the singer ripping into a fan during her concert – after she invites him on-stage for a song. The clip ends with an apology (and a hug) from Patti – but not before things get really awkward. [via IDLYITW]

There are train wrecks, and then there’s Britney. The only way she could look more pathetic while sucking her kid’s pacifier is if she had on a dunce cap and was standing in the corner. Seriously, someone help her. [Just Jared]
Paris? Fake Generosity
The heiress is going to give away her clothes to children’s hospitals because she “never wears something twice.” Interestingly, she’s never worn underwear once. Maybe she should make herself a donation at Victoria’s Secret instead. [Mollygood]
