For the past 3 years, Osama Sam Lutfi has waged a legal war with Britney Spears‘s parents Lynne and Jamie Spears over allegations that he was wronged by them. He accused Lynne of defamation and Jamie of assault. He also accused Britney‘s management team of monies owed because of his claim that he was Britney‘s manager during the darkest days of her life when she was at her lowest point. I’ve not spent any time covering this ridiculous lawsuit here on the site because IMHO, Lutfi enjoyed far too much time already exploiting Britney in any way he could. Yesterday, the judge overseeing Lutfi‘s lawsuit threw the case out of court completely due to lack of evidence. The Spears family was vindicated and Lutfi, well, I hope he crawled back into the slimy hole he slithered out of. More »
Okay, first of all let me just say that I’m kinda, sorta into dub step. I’m still bumpin’ that Centipede track from this past summer and when Taylor Swift dropped I Knew You Were Trouble, I officially became a fan of her music (I know, I’m late). So you can imagine my disappointment when I heard this new song by Israeli producer Borgore! Trent posted it back in August and aptly (and sarcastically) dubbed it the Collaboration of the Century. LMAO. He wasn’t lyin’ y’all. The lyrics are… pretty wack-tastic (although I do kinda like the ‘shoulda let bitches love cake’ part, for whatever reason), and the video is just as ridiculous. Oh yeah, and then there’s the singing. Which is also not good, IMO. Bottom line, this song totally gives dub step a bad name! But I had to watch the video and now so do you– misery lurves company! Plus you gotta see Miley (who I’m still referring to as Gwen Stefani in my head) make out with Liam the Unicorn. Enjoy/feel free to blame me for bringing this video to your attention.
It seems like Xmas comes sooner and sooner with each passing year and this year is no exception. Hallowe’en is barely over and folks are already releasing their Xmas singles! Altho we are still a few weeks away from the Thanksgiving holiday, Backstreet Boys want us to start thinking about Xmas … with the release of their new Xmas single titled It’s Christmas Time Again. Click below to sample a short clip of the new BSB single and start decking the halls, y’all … Xmas is already here, apparently. More »
So Rihanna and Lady Gaga dressed up as, um, weed plants for Hallowe’en, which is awesome… if you’re into weed. And Rihanna looooves to tweet about how much she’s into weed, so it totally makes sense. I guess. I dunno… it was weird. ‘Cause she was like a weed bride or something; there was a veil and a weed bouquet. I was a little confused (oh wait no, look I found the proper title: ‘Princess High the Cannabis Queen‘) but hey– it was Hallowe’en! And it’s not like she dressed up as a terrorist or anything. Her boyfriend did! Wait. I digress. Oh yes– pics of Rihanna‘s Hallowe’en costume– and the remnants thereof– are inside!

As we all know by now Solange Knowles is a huge musical talent with a great sense of artistry and fashion. I’m so glad I saw these pics of her DJ’ing at a new H&M store in the Sante Fe district of Mexico City, Mexico because it totally gave me an excuse to go back and listen to her new single, Losing You. Love that song/video! And I love Solange‘s look in these photos. Those ginormous loose curls, the red lip, the H&M blouse and top– she friggen rules. And bright colors always looks so good on her (remember those photos from her Madewell campaign), she’s just rockin’ it. And I bet she played some ill tunes for Mexico. Peep the gallery for more!

Just before Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart stepped out to celebrate Hallowe’en night together, they sat down with MTV News to promote their forthcoming new (and final) Twilight film. K. Stew and R. Pattz were joined by their third wheel Taylor Lautner for the chat and seemingly presented smiling and joking faces, as if everyone was fine and dandy and no conflict existed between any of them … at all … ever. Click below to read excerpts and watch video from the Twilight Trio‘s interview with MTV and see how happy everyone looks to be promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. More »
Last month we heard some not-so-great Nirvana-related news. Courtney Love, apparently, has plans to team up with Britney Spears‘s former (now disgraced) manager Sam Lufti to make a Nirvana musical. Or a Nirvana movie. They haven’t decided yet, but either way it sounds like a pretty bad idea, and PITNBR emily had some [amazingly on-point] choice words about the whole movement. But now we have a less devastating Nirvana story– Kurt Cobain‘s smashed bass guitar from Nirvana‘s definitive Smell Like Teen Spirit video is going to be auctioned off in London this month. Sigh. What I wouldn’t give to be a thousandaire right about now. Click inside for deets!
Yesterday I was not happy to report that Cee Lo Green of The Voice is facing allegations of sexual assault. Cee Lo has come forward and denied the charges vehemently, but his accuser (a woman he took out on a date a few months back) is now saying that she has proof of the assault. As I said yesterday, this news sucks on a lot of levels because I do not want to believe that one of the coolest artists ever is capable of something like this, and I also don’t want to discover, in the end, that the woman has been lying. Really– it’s all bad. Click inside for more of the bad.

A little while back we found out that Nicki Minaj was getting a three-part reality series event on E! I wasn’t sure if I could take more Nicki Minaj, but since I did catch a little show she had on MTV2 a while back (that was actually kind of cool) I was hoping this new show would give us a glimpse into the real life of Nicki née Onika Tanya Maraj. Today we get our first look at the show Nicki Minaj: My Truth via this 30-second trailer and it looks like something her fans will really enjoy. Cameras follow the pop star as she rehearses for her world tour, launches her perfume line, and prepares for the release of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up. She also says some ish at the end that could very well be an allusion to her highly publicized beef with Mariah Carey. Peep the video above!
Nicki Minaj: My Truth airs on E! this Sunday at 10:30 pm EST. Will you be watching?
