In what is surely the greatest combination of flavors since you got YOUR chocolate in MY peanut butter, two of your favorite Celebreality superstars just made some sweet music together. Literally.
TMZ reports that Flavor of Love star Flavor Flav joined Rock of Love star Bret Michaels on-stage in Dubuque, Iowa (of all the places!), for a killer version of Public Enemy’s 1990 Top 40 smash, “911 Is A Joke.” As you’ll see from the (admittedly crappy*) video above, Flav started the jawn off a capella style, but then Bret and his band joined in with some ferocious instrumental backing, at which point everyone in the audience got up and then got, got down.
What do you guys think? Should Flav and Bret go out on tour together? Or should they stick to romancin’ the ladies?
Posted above is an extended interview from the taping of Bret Michaels‘ Behind the Music (premiering Thursday at 9/8c). In it, he talks about his time on Rock of Love – why he initially passed when offered the show, how his dynamic with the girls turned out to be way different from what he expected, and what the show taught him about “traditional” dating. A big chunk of the episode is devoted to Rock of Love (including interviews with key people from the show’s past), so don’t miss it when it premieres Thursday. In the meantime, you can check out even more clips from Bret’s BTM interview sessions, in which he covers topics like his upcoming autobiography, Poison’s early days of getting paid not to play and his “love hate relationship of Biblical proportions” with C.C. DeVille.
Twenty-two years after the cat dragged ‘em in, Poison is heading back out. Led by our own Rock of Love wild man, the guys with the big hair and the hooky metal riffs are spending a big chunk of the fairest season cruising from city to city on a romp they’re calling the “Live, Raw & Uncut Summer Tour.” It’s sync’d up to a product, natch. A CD/DVD set with the same title hits the racks in June; this time ’round it’s all about the concert and the hits. Maybe Bret will be filming some of the action for the alleged big rock road show he’s been mentioning in interviews.
What makes a rock star? Normally, that honor is reserved for those who are both famous musicians and possessed of a devil-may-care attitude toward life. In today’s Rock Star Moment, however, Bret Michaels shows a distinctly softer side, pairing loose cannon Kristy Joe (who was slightly more married than she let the Poison front man know) with Eastern Master Healer Satish Dholakia. Noting how distraught she is, the guru attempts to help settle her soul and bring her chakras back into alignment — a pretty hopeless endeavor, considering. He asks her if she’s ever seen a “crazy mountain.” She hasn’t, of course, but she’s shown all of us a mountain of crazy. Bless Bret. He’s such a kind man. It’s a sweet gesture, but is it very rock-star?
What makes a rock star? Rock of Love‘s Bret Michaels attempts to answer that particular age-old question in the clip above. Here, the Poison frontman is entertained by two lovely strippers . . . er, women, who disrobe as they read the constitution of the United States. Then they dance with hula-hoops. And they say that the country suffers from a lack of civic pride. While that might be the case, we’re sure as hell not hurting for rock-star moments.
In today?s installment, Rock of Love?s Bret Michaels takes a few of his ladies out for a romantic, low-lit dinner. Actually, dinner?s totally in the dark. Hidden by the darkness, Bret takes the time to sample a few of the delicacies that aren?t on the menu. Is that very rock star of him? Depends on how you like your rock stars ? slathered in saliva or sitting down politely with good table manners.
Saturday Night Live is finally back after a months-long break due to the writers’ strike, and holy crap, did they deliver. Host Tina Fey and the cast (including new member Casey Wilson) had us laughing for the full 90 minutes (Annuale? Oh hell yes) but the highlight for us at the VH1 Blog was this amazing Rock of Love parody featuring Amber, the girl with one leg. Check it out above – think it bears any resemblance to the real thing?
