Who said a prison sentence screws stuff up? T.I., who will begin serving a jail sentence next spring for weapons charges, is busy beefing up his career before heading behind bars. The rapper just signed a three-film deal, and will begin making a crime drama with Matt Dillon titled Bone Deep shortly. But that’s not enough! T.I.P. will also be promoting his new album Paper Trails as well as his MTV documentary style reality show. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. T.I.’s all about his future as the next Tom Cruise, telling MTV, “I’m just looking forward to continuing my success in the film industry. I want to do all kinds of movies. I want to do romantic comedies, action movies, dramas ? tons of different things.”
We’re sure jail will provide the perfect inspiration for all those future roles!
The web was buzzing yesterday over a rumor that Lil Wayne (whose new album also has mouths flapping) had checked himself into a Florida rehab. It’s not that far-fetched, seeing as Weezy often raps about his various drugs of choice and is known to be a fan of sizzurp. But a Cash Money rep’s only response to the rumor, when called, was “Hell nah.”
Meanwhile, Weezy’s ex Karrine “Superhead” Steffans sent Perez Hilton a frantic message today accusing her current boyfriend, Darius McCrary (best known as Eddie Winslow on Family Matters) of attempting to run her over with his car (among other things). Eek. Such serious stuff for the former lovers. Maybe they need each other now more than ever?
Celebrities LOVE sloppy seconds – the minute some star dumps a lover, another famous freak is there to pick up the tossed trash. It’s LA’s own little green movement: Reduce the amount of single celebs out there; Reuse each other’s exes, then Recycle them when the relationship ends! They may not be saving the planet, but they sure are saving celebs from never-ending singledom (which is obvs more important).
Kanye West is the latest celeb to score off of a rejected romance, as the rap diva’s been spotted getting cozy with Nick Cannon‘s ex-fiancee, model Selita Ebanks. The pair were cuddling at the NYC club Tenjune and attempted to discreetly exit together. “They were trying to be inconspicuous,” says a token spy, “but they were smiling and walking real close, and they hopped in a waiting car together laughing and took off.”
Even worse is Cam Diaz, who had dinner Sunday night with Jennifer Aniston‘s ex-boy toy, Paul Sculfor. Jen, as we all know, is currently busy making out with Cam’s ex John Mayer in pools across America. And with that, Hollywood waste is eliminated!
Let’s give Lil’ Kim a round of applause for actually appearing somewhat human at last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. The girl looks good -her cute dress reveals enough without revealing too much, and she opted against makeup that matches her clothes for once! Could this possibly mean that the Queen B is on her way back to the top?
Oh snap. 50 Cent‘s baby mama is freaking out about the fire that claimed her home (and almost took her and her son’s life) last Friday, and is convinced her ex is to blame. “He tried to kill me and his own child,” Shaniqua Tompkins told the NY Post, adding, “Who do I think did it? Curtis Jackson. He threatened me on Monday that he was going to have someone visit me. My kids are in the house. Who would try to kill your own kids? He’s supposed to be all about being a gangster … that’s not a gangster, that’s a coward.”The police are still investigating the fire, even if his ex has already made up her mind about what happened. Interestingly enough, the pair allegedly “got into a violent dispute Monday during a deposition in a $50 million lawsuit she is bringing against him.” File that under ‘things that make you go hmmmmm.’?

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?
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]
Wow. It’s not everyday that celebs match their make up to their dress, but Lil’ Kim seems to have mastered this look! At least she went for the look at the Sex and the City movie premiere, where anything goes in the outfit department and the uglier the better. Now if only she could do something about that creepy look in her eyes.
Without Tom Cruise dragging her around, Katie Holmes looks like a lost child.? [DListed]
Pete Wentz‘s sense of humor is as original as his emo outfits. Snooze.? [Seriously? OMG!]
Tori Spelling has joined the cast of the new 90210, making it just like the old 90210.? [ICYDK]
Diddy and Jay-Z got in a big fight over something (no it wasn’t Beyonce).? [Crunk+Disorderly]
Is Brit-Brit dating her agent? If she’s not shaving her head and crashing cars, do we care?? [I'mNotObsessed]
No, Jared Leto is not dating Jessica Simpson, no matter what you heard. He has common sense, after all.? [PopSugar]
A few weeks ago, we asked you to submit your love and relationship questions to Lil Wayne. No question was too racy, no situation too complicated — the superstar MC would tackle anything.
Well, our hero has listened to all the questions, and in the first installment of “Ask Weezy,” he explains what to do when you’ve got a lazy lady, whether a man’s taking advantage, and if there’s something too freaky for even Wayne to do in the bedroom. Be sure to stop back on Friday, when we’ll have Wayne answer more questions, and pre-order your copy of Tha Carter III here, out June 10.
