Back in the day, arenas full of die-hard fans knew that George Michael was one of the most kinetic performers in pop. So of course they were bummed when he stopped touring for 15 years. Last fall he ended that hiatus by romping around European stages, bringing the hits and the new stuff to life. Now he’s headed to the U.S. After the jump you’ll find a list of the cities that he’ll visit.
And if you want to find out what that “new stuff” sounds like, be back at VH1.com tomorrow. The Leak is streaming his TwentyFive disc in its entirety for a week. While it’s heavy on the classic tracks, it’s also got six new titles: ?An Easier Affair,? ?This Is Not Real Love,? ?Heal The Pain? (duet with Sir Paul McCartney), “Understand,? and ?As? (featuring Mary J. Blige), which was previously unreleased in America. Might be a smart move to put “Freedom” on your fone to prepare for all this GM action. Are you psyched to see Mr. Michael rolling again?

Looks like Lindsay Lohan may have swapped an addiction to drugs and alochol for an addiction to the ladies. Lilo, notoriously close with DJ to the stars Samantha Ronson (pictured above right), has added another sapphic pal to the mix, and there’s trouble in post-rehab paradise. Ronson — who was famously photographed attempting to cover up a passed out Lohan in a car just days before her admittance to rehab — has continued to hang out with Lohan, most recently flying to Long Island with the star to visit her ailing grandfather.
But just after rehab, Linz got close to Yahoo! heir Courtenay Semel. The two lived together for a short time before a falling out, but apparently are rekindling their romance. As reported by Star Magazine, Semel “can’t let go of Lindsay, and she’ll do what she can to win her back,” says a source.
Though it’s a confusing sensation we’ve never quite felt before, we think we actually LIKE Britney Spears in these two clips from her How I Met Your Mother stint! She’s charming, cute, and amazingly, kinda good. How is this possible? This is the same woman who once told a reporter only a few months ago to “eat it, lick it, snort it, f*ck it.” She may not yet have her kids, but look how far Brit’s come! The pop tart is set to take over your TV on Monday night. If she manages to show up with underwear on, it’ll be a step in the right direction. [via DListed]

C’mon girl, let’s do the wild thing
all night long for a couple of minutes...In case you were wondering if “D*ck In a Box” kicked off something beautiful, here’s proof. A couple dudes – a crooner and his wingman (who dines at Boston Market) – laying out some truth, Quiet Storm style. Negative body issues, chaffing, a one-position mentality – the boudoir can sometimes feel like both a shrink’s couch and locker room. One good point here, though. The dumber the c*cksman, the better the chance to fake that orgasm.
What your favorite seduction song?
A single picture has emerged that possibly shows someone who kind of looks like Lindsay Lohan maybe performing fellatio on a guy who could be her ex Calum Best. OMG OMG! But before you get your hopes up that this is the moment you’ve been wishing for since Mean Girls, check out the pic and think again. The image is so blurry it could be just about anyone (Kristen Davis, is that you?) and as much as we want to believe, we have a feeling this is just Photoshopping at it’s best. Want proof? We did a little magic on some pics above. If you can pick out the real Lindsay from the three famous ladies above, maybe you can decipher just what is going on in today’s sex pic scandal.
Jennifer Lopez might as well be holding two gold bricks in this pic. Meet her precious newborns, Max and Emme, who helped the diva rack in a rumored $3 million for the pics inside this week’s People mag. The babies are cute and all, but $3 million? Those kids are worth some dough! They should totally take on Shiloh and Suri for richest human under the age of two (though according to Gawker, Shiloh’s pics actually pulled in more cash). The real test comes when we find out how well this cover sold – did J. Lo jump the shark after Gigli or are we still hooked on her drama (and butt)?
The merciful end of Beatles Week Two is upon us, and not a moment too soon. Our hardy American Idol contestants have survived the experience, but all — including the judges — are clearly anxious for them to return to the chart-pop of the ’80s and ’90s. Beginning with a second Beatles medley, kicked off by ?While My Guitar Gently Weeps,? Idol reminded us just how unsuited for Beatles songs our boys and girls are. Any guitar would have wept at a rendition like this.
The blaze that swept through the crowded Station nightclub five years ago was devastating: one hundred died and 200 were injured at the infamous Great White gig in Rhode Island. Those who follow the classic rock scene likely know that a month ago, a bunch of artists connected in Providence to generate some cash for the Station Family Fund, a group that helps victims with their medical bills. VH1 filmed the show; it premieres the channel and VH1 Classic this Sunday. Above you’ll find our Rock of Love star offering some background on the tragedy. After the jump it’s Tesla and Aaron Lewis performances. The list of participants stretches from Gretchen Wilson to Tom Scholz. You can watch the whole show here and donate money to victims here.
