To me, few things are as sublime as VH1′s trashtastic reality dating shows. I’ve never even slightly gotten the appeal of Bret Michaels on “Rock of Love,” but when I started watching “For the Love of Ray J,” a funny thing happened—I wanted him to be my boyfriend. Not only is Ray J majorly hot—there’s something about his relaxed, no cares in the world attitude that is so, so appealing. At the same time, he seemed genuine, putting his emotions out there. Sadly, things didn’t go so well with his season one choice, and so he is back tonight, starting a whole new quest on season two. Trust me, watch it—it will be amazing TV.
Here’s everything you need to know about Ray J: Keep reading »
If you say the words “sex addiction,” you might get a laugh. The mere thought of someone who is “addicted” to sex is more likely to prompt nervous giggling than nodding compassion. Why? Well, the idea does seem
pretty silly — on the surface. Addicted to sex? It sounds more like someone can’t keep their d**k in their pants. The reality of sexual addiction, though, isn’t so funny, not, at least, according to VH1′s new show, “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew

Alright, I know I’m a little late to the party on this one, but this quick little snippet from “South Park” kept cracking me up during my post-Halloween hangover on Sunday. Cartman meets Lady Gaga, a match made in … God knows where. Keep reading »
When I think of Kenny G, his long, curly fro and smooth jazz saxaphone stylings come to mind—not nerdy glasses and skinny jeans. And yet, Kenny G is teaming up with indie rock gods, Weezer, for a song on their album, Raditude, which drops next week. Frontman Rivers Cuomo apparently emailed The G and asked him to contribute a solo for “I’m Your Daddy.” Kenny fully admits that he didn’t even know who Weezer was before he got the email, but that didn’t stop him from diving fro first into the collaboration. My ears are already confused but still … can’t wait to hear it! [Popeater]
Kenny G and Weezer are not the first odd couple to make beautiful music together. After the jump music’s oddest pairings.

The blind and deaf communities are not rejoicing after the announcement that Abigail Breslin has signed on to play Helen Keller in the upcoming Broadway revival of “The Miracle Worker.” Why? Simply put, she’s not blind or deaf. Advocacy groups feel strongly that the production should consider using an actress from the blind or deaf community because of the larger human and artistic issues at stake. But the producers of the show are not interested in humanity. They are interested in ticket sales—they feel that their primary responsibility is to ensure the commercial success of the production, and in this economy it could take an actual miracle worker to have a wildly successful show without a star. But if it’s any consolation … they will try their best to find a blind or deaf understudy for the part. So what do you think? Is it wrong for Abigail Breslin to land the role of Helen Keller?

Oh, “America’s Next Top Model,” how we wish you were still a good show! Too bad two more people are about to be dragged down by this show. A CW source has revealed that Eddie Murphy (as if he could get any lower after denying he fathered Scary Spice’s baby) will appear alongside Tyra Banks and the other judges during the final fashion show, which will feature designs from Julie Clancy. He won’t be there to judge but rather to cheer on his daughter Bria Murphy, who will walk the runway with the remaining contestants. Bria is following in the footsteps of her mother Nicole Murphy with this career choice. [E! Online] Keep reading »
I know you’re swamped with Halloween preparations and haven’t even bothered to look at this week’s movies, but what are you gonna do on Sunday afternoon when you wake up hung over with a man dressed like the pope next to you and you’re wearing someone else’s wig? You’ve gotta escape somewhere, and where better than a dark, climate-controlled room full of strangers with a tub of hangover-curing carbohydrates? Here’s a look at the possibilities. Keep reading »
Before passing away in 2008, Heath Ledger had started a career as a music video director. One of his videos premiered in August. And a second one, a rap video for Australian N’Fa’s “Cause An Effect,” debuted today on YouTube. The video was shot on one camera in Heath’s Sydney garage shortly before his death, and it’s believed this was the last project over which he exercised complete creative control. He was childhood friends with N’Fa, aka No Fixed Abode, previously known as NFamas from the Australian hip-hop band 1200 Techniques. “The idea was to keep it very artistic so that is what we did,” N’fa said in an accompanying video. “Heath directed it really well and I was really happy with the outcome … I know Heath was happy with the work,” he added.
