This weekend we’re all about The Rachel Zoe Project: Preview Special, Pieces of Me: Britney’s Greatest VMA Moments, the VMAs themselves, the premiere of True Blood, and the next episode of Mad Men.

Britney Spears filmed two promotional spots for the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside host Russell Brand (from Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Though she’s nominated for an award (Best Female Video for “Piece Of Me”), the pop star, who is recovering from, uh, a rough year, won’t be making a “comeback” performing at this year’s award show on September 7th. Last year, Britney made a serious fool out of herself, sleepwalking through an atrocious performance of “Gimme More”, an event which signaled months’ worth of head-shaving, umbrella-wielding, psychotic breakdown-ing mayhem. But she seems so much better now, like the Britney we know and love! Last year it seemed like MTV set the star up to fail, hoping she would falter for ratings’ sake, but we think she should come back this year and knock some socks off. One more promo, after the jump… [MTV] Keep reading »
The hit song of the summer, I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry, is the soundtrack for a new sexual revolution. From co-ed LUG’s to Hollywood’s hottest stars, girl-on-girl action is steaming up the streets and screens across the U.S. What publicly started with Madonna kissing Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the Video Music Awards in 2003, has grown into a full-on, leggings-style TREND.

Yesterday, Amelia noticed something different about Ali Lohan’s physique, so that got me thinking about how breasts, or a lack thereof, can affect a young starlet’s rise to fame. Here’s a list of celebs whose breasts have affected their careers.
- Soleil Moon Frye is best known for her role as Punky in the television sitcom Punky Brewster. When she was 16, Soleil had breast reduction surgery, going from 36DD to 34C because she had back problems. But knowing our culture, I think she also wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and later as a director.
- To me, Raven-Symone represents a normal body size. She has curves that are proportional to her height, and she’s one of a few thick girls catering to the preteen girl demographic. But every time I watch That’s So Raven, I wonder why her breasts and the rest of her torso are always covered because it makes her look larger than she really is. Then I realized this is a technique to make Raven, 22, look more like a teenager for her roles on that show and in The Cheetah Girls movies. But choosing to cover her curves has led to a malicious debate online: Is Raven fat or all breasts?
