If you spotted Madonna yesterday, you were probably surprised to find her looking a little less energetic than usual. In an uncharacteristic move for the work-out-aholic and mother of three, Madge went out after her triumphant Roseland show and “tied one on” with her evening co-star, Justin Timberlake. “We had to celebrate,” a groggy Madonna told Ryan Seacrest when she called into his morning show. “[We] decided we both work too hard and have to have fun.” Drinks with Justin Timberlake sounds like fun to us. The star reportedly sipped on a martini at her after party at New York’s The Box, then had a shot of tequila and a lemon drop.
Calling Brangelina, TomKat, X-Tina, Nicole, and Jarc Lopanthony!!! Usher thinks you and your million dollar baby photos are disgusting! He’s speaking out against all the celebs who accept cash from mags in exchange for baby pics, and he’s pissssssed. “In no way would I ever pimp out my child for money,” he growled to Page Six after rumors swelled that he too was selling pics of his newborn, Usher V. “I am livid that people talk about my child.”
He also ranted about the (mis)treatment of his wife Tameka, stating, “I stand by her as a man loving my wife and being there for my child . . . this is my wife and I would hope that [people] would respect my wife and my marriage and who I have chosen to spend my life with.” Certainly we respect Usher’s opinion (his wife is another story) and agree with his baby-pimpin’ stance. Still, we find it a little odd that he’d then pose with his son – for free – on the cover of the June issue of Essence magazine. Isn’t it possible to pimp even if no cash exchanges hands? [Page Six]
Holy crap everyone! A blog, Hollyscoop, has “learned exclusively through multiple sources that Beyonce is expecting.” OMG!!! This completely anonymous source assures the world that B is in her early stages and that everyone at their wedding knew the good news, however she won’t reveal it for a while because ya know, they’re super private. Except, of course, when it comes to talking to this anonymous source, natch, who also alleged that they had a shotgun wedding due to the pregnancy.
Wow! Guess what? I have an exclusive anonymous source (my cat) who can reveal that Britney Spears is going to be the democratic nominee for President and that Paris Hilton has gotten rid of her Bentleys and plans to ride horses around Beverly Hills in order to stop pollution! Oh, they’ve also give me an exclusive pic of Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s yet to be born baby decked out in Dereon (see above)! Anonymous sources are like super heroes, ya’ll. Totally amazing and 100% fake!
This week Coldplay released the cover art for their upcoming album, Viva La Vida, which is just what the chaps have been doing since they were last in the spotlight (hanging with Kanye, living with a fox). In addition to the cover, we also snagged you the track list, which is after the jump. If you want to give their newest single a listen, head to Rhapsody and tell us what you think of “Violet Hill.”
Latina is reporting that Mariah Carey‘s supposed beau Nick Cannon is not only her man for real, he’s now also her husband! Citing a source close to Nick, the site reports that Mariah and Nick wed yesterday on a small island in a “very impulsive” ceremony attended by Da Brat and some others close to the pair. Do you think maybe that this is all some big April Fool’s joke that’s arriving fashionably late?
Maybe that’s wishful thinking — as the shot to the left (from the set of Mariah’s 2005 video for “We Belong Together”) proves, Mimi is definitely the marrying type. This would be her second marriage (she divorced svengali Tommy Mottola in 1998) and Nick’s first, since he’s, like, 12. [Latina.com]
With the spring here, people are coming out of their winter hibernations to greet the world with arms wide. Makeovers are a fairly standard endeavor, and John “He Gets the Joke, Really” Mayer is no different. This morning, Mayer took to his blog to alert his fans and detractors of the remarkable transformation he’ll undergo:
Today I set off on my newest project; to grow and maintain an authentic ’80s style feathered haircut. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time…
It’s nice Mayer’s getting to scratch this off his bucket list, while simultaneously stimulating Michael J. Fox’s Yahoo Hot List rating, but one can’t help but wonder what else Mayer could be doing with his time, or on a scale of one to ten, how pleased he is with himself.

I was just sitting here minding my business, when I noticed this little tidbit coming across the web about Paris Hilton and her twin boy toy Benji Madden. The Good Charlotte guitarist has written his lover of two months her own song, titled, “Shine Your Light.” Paris says, “It’s this really beautiful love song about me. It was the sweetest thing that anyone has ever done for me….He’s my best friend.”
BEST FRIEND? I thought that was the position I’d be competing for on her reality show! W.T.F. Just to show my devotion to the heiress, I’ve written her an even better song. It’s called “Dump Your Boyfriend and Let’s Hang and Do Shots.” Here’s a sample lyric:
Seriously Paris, forget that dude
He’ll never appreciate your attitude
Let’s share clothes, here’s my dress from 1993
aren’t you glad you’re BFF with me!
Check out my blog and vote for me to be Paris Hilton’s best friend!
Take this with a 17 carat grain of salt, but the NY Post is reporting that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are indeed engaged to be married. The ring, allegedly purchased by Nick, cost her man $2.5 million and was purchased at Jacob the jeweler. The massive rock is 17 carats and has a 10 carat stone surrounded by pink and purple diamonds (obviously – this is Mariah “Butterfly” Carey we’re talking about). No one even knew these two were together a month ago – including the happy couple. Maybe that means this marriage is meant to last? [NYPost]
