Usher’s on a roll. While he didn’t quite get the same sales of his album “Confessions” the new release of “Here I Stand” took the charts by storm, selling almost half a million copies in one week. It even beat the Sex and the City soundtrack.
It’s not American Idol, but this viral hit Pork and Beans is certainly getting people’s votes. The song is by the alternative rock band, Weezer.

Alanis Morisette, best known for her angsty songs, has plenty of new emotional material now that her ex is engaged to Scarlett Johanssen. The two broke up years ago, which she reveals, caused her to
hit rock bottom. But she’s okay now, and with a CD that chronicles her climb back to sanity. If life is fair, she’ll get a Grammy for her pain.
When Madonna told Justin TImberlake to strip, he stripped
“Nice top shelf,” she said.
Justin fondly recalls that moment “as one of the greatest days of my life.”
At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, Justin returns the compliment, praising Madonna for her “shapely body of work” and how she’s “always been a woman on top” who “fully enjoys that position.”
Her reply? “I’ll get you, f—–!”
Oh, get a room, you two.
Britney Spear’s new video “Break the Ice” will debut at 6:30 ET today — and fans get to join her.
The video will be released at BlackOutBall.com. Fans can get to join the online party, where an anime Britney will mingle. (Fortunately, this version of the pop star won’t get drunk, high, or flirt with any paparazzi.)
The clip itself was directed by Robert Hales, who also did the Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” video.
Our congratulations to the production company for thinking of a way to produce the video while the real Britney was having a nervous breakdown. We assume the animations were made while she was going in and out of the hospital, and gallivanting around town with paparazzi.
Celebrific sends its birthday greetings to Carrie Underwood, whose American Idol performances catapulted her from herding cattle to a stellar singing career, numerous awards, and millions of loyal fans.
What, you say you’re the biggest fan? Prove it with this Carrie Underwood quiz.
The nominations for the 2007 MTV Music Video Awards are finally in, it seems like it takes longer each passing year.Â And guess who’s leading the pack?Â Â None other than Justin Timberlake & Beyonce Knowles, each with 7 nods.Â
Among the noms, Justin & Beyonce have been nominated for Video of the Year & Male and Female Artist of the Year, respectively.
Should be a good one this year!
Singing sensation Christina Aguilera has canceled herÂ last twoÂ concerts in Australia after her doctors diagnosed with “a viral upper respiratory tract infection with a high fever and abnormal coughing.”Â Well, that doesn’t seem like the best condition to be singing in, not to mention the pregnancy.
Xtina is in the land Down Under wrapping up her latest ginormous tour while being preggo.Â In a statement to her Aussie fans, Christina said, “I want to personally apologize to all of my fans for having to cancel my last two shows here in Melbourne. Unfortunately, I have fallen ill with a bad flu virus. This is one of the best cities in the world to perform in and I am truly disappointed that I won’t be able to share my show with you all. Thank you for all of the continued love and support and I hope to perform for you all again next time.”
Xtina’s doctors have ordered the singer to enjoy some bed rest.Â Wishing you a speedy recovery, Christina!
Crotchflasher Britney Spears has a new look in town.Â We’re calling in the widow hooker look, whatcha think?
Apparently Spears isn’t just walking aroundÂ the city in this outfit, she’s putting a music video together for her song “Get Back.”Â HopefullyÂ the video will bring back a little something that we actually saw in Brit severalÂ years ago.
You know, before the whole head shaving,Â K-Fed-loving, ranting & raving Britney took over.Â Here’s hoping for a stellar performance!
Singer Nelly FurtadoÂ wasÂ looking chipper as she posed for pictures at Miami’s Mansion nightclub on Wednesday.
NellyÂ & crew were celebrating her summer tour that unfortunately endsÂ sooner that we want, on June 23 in Las Vegas.Â At least Nelly can make some wishes with those candles & get back on stage quick.
Well, in an unsuprising turn of events, it looks like GunsÂ N’ RosesÂ walked out on a bill from their 2006 tour.
According to TMZ, who apparently have a copy of the lawsuit being filed, members of the rock bandÂ ditched the bill of a logistics companyÂ hired for their last tour.Â
Starlift Logistics out of New Jersey were hired to transport & provide touring services for Guns but from the looks of the court document, leading member Axl Rose walked out on the $107,000 bill.
Hmmm, looks like they’re going to need another tour to pay for this one…..Â Who even went to that tour anyway?
A fair amount of celebs showed up for the Australian MTV Music Awards Sunday night.
Pink, Good Charlotte, 30 Seconds to Mars & Fergie, of course, showed up for the big event down under & even took home a statue, along with that 80s-licious banana outfit.
And a big congrats to Pink, who actually looks close to feminine!
Sexypants shaker & singer Shakira performed in front of a sold out crowd on Wednesday.
The crowd, who was everyone from the Middle East to Portugal, screamed themselves hoarse as Shakira took theÂ Lisbon stageÂ on her Oral Fixation tour.Â
You know, I think I might have an oral fixation myself, and her name is Shakira.
On Monday hottiepants Beyonce Knowles got up a little early & headed on down to CBS to perform live for The Early Show.Â The performance was just like any other, just throw in another bad dress & you get the idea.
Beyonce is promoting her new album, B’Day The Deluxe Edition.Â I’m not sure why the singer/actress couldn’t get another music album together instead of trying to tap into more cash on her B’Day record.Â But I guess the girl has to buy a wardrobe of zebra dresses somehow….
You tell me- what do you think of Beyonce’s CBS look?

I can’t say this album was highly anticipated by the masses, because most of us don’t even know who Belgian Tony Parker is, but the San Antonino Spur recently released a rap album the likesÂ of which no one really liked.
“Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria cheered her fianceÂ on as he released hisÂ very first (and last) rap album this week.Â Â UnfortunatelyÂ ”Balance-toi” was not the rap album of the year.
Parker basically brags (more than most) about his lavish life in a semi-rappish style, much to the chagrin of these ears of mine.Â The only thing going for Tony with his new album, is that most of the lyrics are in French.Â For some handy dandy (& a little scary) translations of his rhymes, check out the Village Voice.Â
We all just think that Parker should stick to the things he knows best:Â marrying older & uglier women and playing ball.
Apparently Bryan Adams is still clinging to any celebrity that he still might have by performing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil today.Â
The old man singer was spotted in a crowd of plenty trying to belt out any songs that we might all still remember.Â The fact that Bryan Adams is still around wasn’t that surprising to me, but the fact that we still care about this washed-up singer didn’t sit too well.

During a recent performance in Puerto Rico MartinÂ gave a gesture when he sang his popular song “Asignatura Pendiente.”
In the song there is a line in the lyrics that goes a little something like this, “A photo with Bush….”Â During this particular line Martin have the crowd of 18,000 fans a show of his middle finger.
After Ricky boy gave Bush the F-you treatment, the crowd fell into crazy cheering & support.Â
What do you think of little Ricky now?
