The hip hop star freaked out after learning the video for his new song, “Follow My Lead,” had leaked onto the web, chucking his phone out a window and ripping a TV off his office wall. Let’s see Kanye beat that tantrum! [TMZ]

Pics: Is Paris a Pothead?
Yeah yeah, we know what she told Larry King, but that thing she’s smoking looks a lot like a nice fat joint. We demand a drug test! [DListed]

Fiddy: If Kanye Wins, I Quit



Are you sick of the 50 Cent vs. Kanye West release-date rivalry yet? 50 Cent isn’t! Intent on milking this marketing tiff for all he can (he and Kanye are set to release their new albums both on Sept. 11), 50 has announced that if Kanye’s Graduation outsells his Curtis, he’s hanging up his mic. “If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I’ll no longer [perform] music. I’ll write music and work with my other artists, but I won’t put out any more solo albums.” Don’t threaten me with a good time! Of course, Fiddy’s words come from his deep-seated arrogance. He goes on to explain why he thinks he has this competition in the bag:

They would like to see Kanye West give me a problem, because I’ve worked myself into a space where I’ve become the favorite. Everybody roots [for] the underdog when he goes against the favorite.

Fiddy may want to revise his statement when he realizes that so far he’s thrown five Curtis singles at the wall (count ‘em: “Straight to the Bank,” “Amusement Park,” “I Get Money,” “AYO Technology” and “Follow My Lead”) and nothing has stuck so far. Not very anticipated, now, is he? He’s looking more and more like the underdog. Ironically, I’m still not rooting for him. [New York Daily News / Image credit: Getty]

KISS Goes Down (Under) This Weekend


KISSPaul Stanley has suffered some health scares, Ace Frehley has a lifetime-supply of donuts, Peter Criss is making sure all those cat fans are happy, and and Gene is constantly on display. But almost 30 years ago the guys brought their love guns down to Australia, and they were rocking the planet in a way few bands did. The new DVD, KISSology II: Live in Sydney is in the racks next Tuesday, but you can get a big blast of it on VH1 Classic this weekend. What? You threw your TV out the window? Here you go, we can hook you up. Don’t miss “Firehouse” and “Is That You?” – they’re the exclusive performances that you’ll only catch online. And remember, if you ever get tired of rock ‘n’ rolling all night, you can always party every day. What’s your favorite tune by the boys?

Is Lindsay Barefoot and Pregnant on Long Island?

by (@katespencer)

La La La La Lohan!!!!!!!!!!If you believe the most recent rumors about the MIA starlet, than the answer is yes. A “friend” of LiLo’s apparently told OK! mag that she is hiding out somewhere with a baby bump. “?It woudn?t be the first time she had a pregnancy scare,? revealed the source. That seems kinda hard to believe (wasn’t she just guzzling booze a few weeks ago?), but seeing as Lindsay does like to imitate her ex-BFF Nicole, you never know. And it could explain this recent sighting of Lindsay at a Long Island department store. Mysterious! She’s like the Loch Ness monster. We’ll just have to keep holding our breath ’til the day Lindsay emerges with either with a clean drug test report or a nice fat baby bulge. Or both. [Image: Getty]

Here’s What Else Is in R. Kelly’s “Closet”:


Below, catch an exclusive extended preview of the upcoming 10 chapters of R. Kelly‘s “Trapped in the Closet” saga (set to hit DVD on Aug. 21). You may have seen the recap of the first 12 chapters (dubbed “Chapter 12.5″) that hit the Net a few weeks ago — that’s in the video below, but so are first-looks at Chapters 13, 18 and 21. Catch R. Kelly in old-man drag in the character of Randolph — yes, R&B fans, there is a Santa Claus. See our hero lead a gospel revival (bonus points: the “Closet” melodic template gets a choir-led upgrade!). Watch a Sopranos-inspired mob showdown.

It only gets nuttier. The clip below is full of choice dialogue — I can’t decide which is the better insult: “I hope a pigeon fly by here and s*** on your face,” or calling someone, “LL Fool J.” At least there’s no longer a question about R. Kelly’s intent: what’s below is so ridiculous that he’s clearly in on the joke. I mean, he has to be, right? Right?!?!

Amy Winehouse Goes to Rehab – Yes Yes Yes

by (@katespencer)

amywinehouse081007.jpgSurely Amy Winehouse knew that if she penned a hit song about not going to rehab, she’d end up there eventually, right? It’s almost too easy. British gossip rags are reporting that after a stint at a London hospital on Wednesday for “exhaustion,” Winehouse checked herself into The Priory rehab center on Thursday, and is resting in a private wing. This comes after an alleged 3-day drug binge, in which a “friend” reveals that, “She was downing coke, pills and ketamine, vodka and Jack Daniel?s. Even Amy says she will be dead within one year.”

Or not, we hope. Let’s hope she gets rid of her demons in rehab. Then she can move on to dumping her big-mouthed friends. [DListed, The Sun, The Mirror. Image: Getty]

So This Is What Paris Does All Day – Nothing

by (@katespencer)

You could play this video on repeat for 24-hours and you’d essentially have a day in the life of Paris Hilton. Wake up, put on bikini, talk on iPhone while staring at self in glass door, more staring, sit on massive cushions and pretend to read something, kiss dog, smother dog, pick wedgie. Repeat.

Paris Hilton is an Expert on Parenting

by (@katespencer)

parisexpert0809071.jpgThe above statement should be obvious, considering how wonderful Paris Hilton is as a dog owner. Even though she has yet to pop a baby out, Paris knows all about what makes a good mommy, and has total faith in Nicole Richie to be one. “She’s really happy.” Paris said of her BFF. “I just got off the phone with her. She’s so excited. I know she’s going to be the best mom ever.”

Really? How do you know, exactly? Because she’s been so fun to get fall-down drunk with over the past 26 years? Paris also revealed that Nicole and her man are “really in love.” Now that’s something we trust Paris to talk about. Now stop blabbing and get back to that charity work, heiress. [People.

Patton Oswalt: Religious Flav Of Love?


Flavor Flav

Stopped on the red carpet for Sunday night’s Roast of Flavor Flav on Comedy Central, professional wiseacre and rat-voice star Patton Oswalt wondered what would happen if the Catholic church got all hooked-up in a reality show.

Our coverage of the event gave you a taste of what to expect, but if your life is built around curse-riddled zingers, you’ll want to spend a few seconds with the show’s trailer. Hey, Brigitte Nielsen’s not really a man, is she?
