While the rest of the world was paying attention to who was winning what at the MTV Movie Awards, a few of us were drooling over our favorite celebs that looked good enough to bed. Check out our picks for the 10 Most F*ckable Celebs at last night’s show – and tell us, were you as turned on by Audrina’s new bangs as we were?
After schooling us with her Tips for a Bangin’ Summer Body, Ashanti‘s back to impart more wisdom to the VH1 Blog. Above, the diva talks about her fourth studio album, The Declaration (in stores tomorrow, June 3), and why collaborating does a pop-star good. And since she reveals that the intense video for “The Way That I Love You” is based on the Oxygen’s true-crime series focusing on women murders, Snapped, we took the opportunity to ask Ashanti just how crazy love has driven her. Check out the video below to see just how close Ashanti has come to snapping, herself.
The soon-to-be couple of the summer, Didiaz (seen above on May 29), reconnected last weekend at a backyard concert thrown by Prince (only in Hollywood, huh). During the affair they giggled and held hands while the Didster sipped Grey Goose and Cameron spoon-fed him bites of her bread pudding. Barf. The couple then apparently meandered through Prince’s palace until they found a private room and promptly locked themselves inside. Nod nod, wink wink! Diddy got all steamed when he heard people were making a big deal out of their little rendezvous, stating, “It is ridiculous that two celebrities of the opposite sex can’t just hang out with a group of friends without it being reported as more than that. We are just friends.”
But really, aren’t all of Diddy’s lady pals just friends with sexy benefits? [NYDN]
(The VH1 Blog knows very little about the law. So we’ve solicited Mark Muro, a founder of the California law firm Muro & Lampe, Inc. to keep a running tab on which side has the advantage in the R. Kelly child pornography trial. Check back daily for updates.)
Though hardly as intriguing as the heavily anticipated “threesome” testimony, the prosecution made headway towards undermining the mole defense with video forensics expert Grant Fredericks. Fredericks showed the jury several frozen frames where a dark spot was visible on the man’s back — in the same location as R. Kelly’s mole. Defense attorneys sparred with Fredericks over whether the mole was in fact in the same spot. We’re betting the jurors can figure that one out for themselves.
In even drier, yet effective, testimony, FBI forensic expert George Skaluba explained to jurors that the sex tape was not computer generated or altered, but instead depicted “real people in a real environment.” I anticipate that the defense will have its own forensic experts. But it’s possible that R. Kelly’s mole could turn out to be cancerous to his case.
Prosecution gets another point. Overall score: Defense: 0; Prosecution: +4.
You asked, he answered. In the latest installment of Ask Weezy, Lil Wayne fills us in on his bedroom soundtrack.
He has a lot more solutions to sex and romance queries.? Watch ‘em all right here, and pre-order Tha Carter III, out June 10.
Yesterday news broke that American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken served as a sperm donor for friend and music producer Jaymes Foster. Foster, who is due in August, is the sister of David Foster, music producer and longtime friend of Aiken. We’re sure Aiken’s going to be a great dad to the little one, and able to impart tons of helpful advice that he’s picked up along the way. We’ve compiled a bit of the fatherly wisdom Aiken will surely pass on to the littlest Claymate.
Pancake, It’s Not What’s For Breakfast: Male or female, gay or straight — why limit yourself in the amount of makeup you wear out of the house? You always want to look coordinated, so why not have your face match your hair.
Feathered, Highlighted and Banged: The only thing that gets as much attention as a good haircut…is a bad one.
Creeping People Out: Sure, Clay’s probably a totally nice guy, but his songs are downright terrifying. A few lines from Clay’s hit “Invisible” will undoubtedly get the littlest Aiken whatever they want on the playground.
How To Appeal to Massive Amounts of Rabidly Dedicated 14-Year-Old Girls: Actually, we have no idea how he does this.
Tonight the most important movie to co-star a pair of pumps opens, and the Fergalicious One stopped by, who created the theme song for Sex And The City. She dishes the re-release of her chart-shattering The Duchess, the shoot for her high-energy “Party People” video with Nelly and what’s up next.
In honor of the Sex and the City movie opening this weekend and the awful frocks its stars have worn in episodes of the hit HBO show, we’ve gathered the best of the worst fashion flops to ruin Hollywood this year. Not everyone can star in the greatest chick flick of our time, but you sure can dress like you’re straight out of the movie!
From the left: Sarah Jessica Parker and pals (Coco, Heidi Montag, Paris Hilton, Katie Holmes, Tyra Banks, Rumer Willis, Jenna Jameson, Anna Wintour) model their poor picks in crap couture.
…Or rather, a girl who’s never thrown a ball before. I mean, really – aren’t us ladies supposed to be empowering each other with our sports skills and love of math? Besides, it’s not that hard to toss a ball, especially for someone who works out 14 hours a day with some fancy trainer from St. Barts. But Mimi must maintain her delicate image! God forbid she admits to having another muscle on her besides that voice. Watch and laugh (or cry).
