Last week we brought you the news that Hulk Hogan‘s 17-year old son Nick was in a serious car accident in Florida. Now Hulk is speaking out to The Insider about the accident that left Nick with “a broken arm and a broken rib and some stuff wrong with his knees.” With Nick’s friend and passenger John Graziano still in critical condition, Hulk revealed that his son is “living at the hospital with John. He’s going to be okay and John’s going to be okay and we’re going to move forward.”
Check out video of Hulk’s moving statement and leave your messages of support for the Hogan and Graziano families here. [Image: Getty]

Usher: Desperate for a Son

Brit: Rockin? an Engagement Ring
Britney may be getting a lot of s**t for wearing a big rock on her engagement ring finger this weekend, but we totally get what she’s saying. She’s married to herself, ya’ll! Isn’t she lucky? [NYP]
Gisele?s Inappropriate Baby Gift
“The Body” tried to be nice to boyfriend Tom Brady’s ex Bridget Moynahan, purchasing a $1000 gift basket for the actress and her new son, fathered by Brady. Too bad a onesie with “Supermodel” written across it was included in the goodies. Gisele just can’t stop rubbin’ it in! [NYDN]
It’s finally happening! Two new Britney singles – Gimme More and Cold As Fire – from her next album have leaked, and it’s both exciting and totally freaky at the same time. One minute she’s all hot and sexy and the next minute she sounds like a cracked out chipmunk – but still both tunes are kinda catchy. We’re so desperate for a Britney comeback that we’ll take what we can get. If she wrote a kickass jam about her fugly hair extensions we’d probably be into it.
When not laying down tracks, the singer is also reportedly working her butt off with creeptastic magician Criss Angel on her VMAs performance. A source tells the NY Daily News that “Angel will guide Spears in and out of a series of mirrors, making it seem as though she vanishes and then reappears several times.” Dancers are also going to be attached to harnesses and propelled in the air so they appear as though they are flying. Brit’s already made out with Madonna, fondling a snake and danced in a sparkly, nude-colored body suit. She’s topped everyone else, but can she top herself?
Give a listen to her two singles and let us know what you think. Do the new tunes put you back on the Britney bandwagon?

“I personally believe the U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe they should our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. or should help South Africa or should help the Iraq and Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for us.” - Miss Teen South Carolina, when asked in the Miss Teen USA pageant why 1/5 of all Americans can?t find our country on a map.

Round 72, part IV of Kanye vs. 50: In an interview with San Diego morning radio show AJ’s Playhouse, 50 told everyone what he really thinks of Kanye — he sucks. 50 also claimed his rival’s label would be padding sales by purchasing 200,000 copies of Kanye’s Graduation, and stating, “he sounds like a robot, he has a robot record.? Given Ye’s penchant for all things Daft Punk, he might not find this to be that insulting. We’re so confused — didn’t the two not-at-all-publicity-hungry rappers quash their beef when they appeared on stage with one another at Screamfest? There are also rumors abounding of a Rolling Stone cover of Kanye and 50, together. So what’s with all the bickering? Is this the greatest marketing coup ever, or the beggining of one of rap’s heaftiest beefs?

Fiddy Believes That Children Are Our Future
Is there a borderline obese teen in your life with a passing resemblance to the greatest rapper of all time, the Notorious B.I.G.? Can he grunt, breathe heavily through his mouth and train his eyes to point in two different directions? Well, he could be in luck! Despite reports earlier this week suggesting that one-hit-wonder-in-the-making Sean Kingston had landed the role, a producer of the Biggie biopic denies that any such casting choice has been made. “The role for B.I.G is 100 percent open and we are diligently searching for the individual to seize the moment and fill those giant shoes of greatness. Everyone is being considered, including Sean Kingston but no one has been chosen,” says producer Wayne Barrow. In the aforementioned, earlier report, Sean claimed he “nailed” his audition. We hope this turn of events doesn’t make him suicidal. Suicidal. Suicidal. [AllHipHop.com]

If you can dig it, we suggest you hang.
