Vinny Has A Vision… T-Shirts

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Charge It, Tyrell

The kids from the Jersey Shore have used their 15 minutes of fame to their advantage to launch some successful products and other ventures. We learned that Pauly D was receiving his own reality show about djing in Vegas recently from Patrick but he’s not the only guido with fingers in other honey pots. JWoww has her own clothing lined called Filthy Couture and is now releasing a book on relationship advice. Mike “The Situation” has his workout DVDs as well as a clothing line and Snooki is being used for multiple appearances and endorsements.

Now, its Vinny’s turn to hit the spotlight. Vinny has created his own t-shirt line called IHAV which stands for I Have A Vision. He is pairing himself up with DoSomething.org, an organization that promotes powering offline action. Their mandate is to use the internet and online social media, to encourage teens to get offline and do some good and volunteer in their communities.

Partial proceeds from Vinny’s new t-shirt line will go towards funding for this organization which also aligns itself with various charities and causes. The cause that Vinny has chosen to help? Bullying. I am so impressed. Vinny was always one of my favorites but now, he’s moved up a little on the list.

Just as you may have expected, Ashton Kutcher‘s alleged former mistress, 21 year old Brittney Jones has dropped her lawsuit against Vivid Entertainment, which means they can move forward with selling the sex tape. I don’t blame her. Look at what happened to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian after their sex tapes were released. These girls who were socialites became celebrities, and were then awarded with reality shows and loads of cash. “If Kim can survive and in fact do even better after a sex tape scandal, I guess I can, too,” says Jones.

A rep for Vivid Entertainment told TMZ that after several rounds of litigation, Kutcher has a bit of a victory as the rep says that, “We decided not to use the A-lister’s actual name in connection with the sex tape.”

If they can’t use his name then perhaps they should make a play on his MTV series, Punk’d and call it Spunk’d. Perfect, right? Vivid Entertainment boasts “Ashton’s fans will undoubtedly enjoy seeing what the star himself may have experienced.”

Britney Spears’ New Track Out January 7th

In: Music, Patrick

Nothing like a hot Britney Spears track to kick start your 2011! As you probably already know, the track is called “Hold It Against Me,” and it will be the first single from her new album that comes out in March. In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Sharon Dastur, the program director for New York’s Z100, released a few exciting details about this highly anticipated track:

“It’s produced by Dr. Luke and Max Martin. And the beat that they give her is really unique compared to other artists — this infectious bass beat beneath the song. Plus, the hook is just amazing. It will be out on January 7.”

Last week, the Britney camp sent out a casting notice for dancers for the music video that will accompany the track. The shoot will also take place in January. I’m crossing my finger for some hot dance choreography, like in “I’m A Slave For You”. The rumored lyrics to the song have also surfaced on the web, which have not been confirmed or denied as the real thing. Check them out below.

Are you excited for “Hold It Against Me”?

A while back, I told you about the exciting news that hottie James Marsden (aka Cyclops in X-Men) was going to be guest starring on one of my favorite TV shows, Modern Family. Well, now that the holidays are almost over and television is about to fall back into its regular schedule, ABC has released a teaser of the Modern Family episode titled, “Slow Down Your Neighbors”.

In the teaser, Cameron and Mitchell discover a stranger in their hot tub, and when he stands up, they see the stranger’s hot bod and decide to get to know him better… They discover that the stranger actually just moved in next door and thought the hot tub was a shared amenity. Marsden plays a Reiki (a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation) practitioner in the episode that airs on Wednesday, January 5th. The banter between Cameron & Mitchell is hilarious…as it always is. I love them. Check out the clip below and see for yourself.

At Christmas dinner over the weekend, my older brother brought me to his laptop to show off a killer new web project he’d found that combines nostalgia with the latest and greatest of global technology. Google Chrome- a somewhat recent addition to the web browser game- may not be the majority software of choice as Firefox seems to have taken over from Internet Explorer and as Safari continues its stranglehold over Mac users, but backed by the power and $$$ of Google, this program is giving the big boys a run for their money. In Google’s ever-expanding and utterly fantastic Maps endeavor, they’ve begun sending hordes of employees throughout North America with video cameras to take 360 degree views of every street out there. It was only a matter of time before some smart techie decided to take advantage and reappropriate of this navigation tool.

Developer and music video director Chris Milk has submitted what he calls “The Wilderness Downtown” which combines the alt rock sounds of The Arcade Fire’s: “We Used To Wait” from their album “The Suburbs” with the recent web advancement. A song perfectly chosen for its days gone past lament, Milk utilizes some pretty advanced HTML5 processes and the hard labour of those camera totting-Google-employees to create a visually stunning and emotional piece. Tailoring to each viewer, you type your childhood home address into their application, click go then sit back and enjoy. As the head-bompin’ song takes over, the viewer watches a hooded man running down an “anywhere” street as multiple screens pop up on your screen and combine a flock of digital, flying birds with the unknown runner and most importantly Google Map Satellite views of the address and neighbourhood you typed in! It’s a brilliant production that lets you re-live younger years, and definitely made me smile. An ironic combination of globalization and suburb memories, this puppy is for sure worth a view!

Chris Brown In Our Bad Books Again

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

I recently wrote about Chris Brown‘s work in progress “comeback” after having completed his course on Domestic Violence and his upcoming collaboration with Justin Bieber – but he just let everyone down with a series of homophobic tweets (which he says aren’t homophobic) from his Twitter account.

  • I’m not homophobic! He’s just disrespectful!!!
  • I’m not mad though!!! I’m just not silent nor am i one of these scary R&B cats!!
  • I ain’t deleting my tweet either!! I was minding my damn business and Peter pan decides to pop off!!! # whatalame
  • Tell me this @razb2k!! Why when the money was coming in u won’t complaining about getting butplugged! #homothug!!!
  • @razb2k n**ga you want attention! Grow up n**ga!!! Dick in da booty ass lil boy

The Twitter fight is between him and a former B2K member (Raz-B – aka De’Mario Monte Thornton). Not sure exactly how it started, but Chris Brown is certainly backpedaling now, saying how he loves all his gay fans and that he’s not homophobic. Sorry buddy, just because you say that now doesn’t mean you can say whatever offensive things you want. Especially given the voice and influence you have because of your celebrity status.

Tonight, Clinton Sparks Will Be Your Favorite DJ

In: Music, Tyrell

If you love a good track with a great beat, than you are probably familiar with a few tracks from producer, Cliton Sparks. His tracks are known to be club bangers and has had some mega hits with Pitbull and Ludacris just to name a few. Now, stepping out on his own, Sparks has released a single of his own and has paired it with a few of his favorites. Even better, the song has two versions.

Version 1 features Jermaine Dupri and DJ Class. Version 2 features Sean Paul, Ricky Blaze and Supa Dups. Both videos feature Sparks with a ton of smoking hot girls and him DJing for them in the bedroom in his mansion. Both videos end with a surprise visitor at the door from none other than singer JoJo. Both videos end with a peek of another Sparks song called Sucks To Be You, which by the sounds of it, is going to be another hit.

Sparks recently signed his first solo record deal as an independent artist with Interscope/Get Familiar records and is said to be releasing his debut album in 2011. If his solo efforts are as good as his collaborations have been, than this album is going to be a TKO.

Check out both version of the song after the jump.

Willow Smith may have a hit with Whip My Hair, but long before Willow was even a thought for Will and Jada, Will was making hits of his own. One being the classic Parents Just Don’t Understand. The song originally was Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff’s second single off their second album. The song garnered huge success including a Grammy for Best Rap Performance in 1989. The song even reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 at the time. The song was also referenced a lot on Will’s hit TV show The Fresh Prince Of Bel-air.

Now, the time has come for his new superstar daughter to take the reigns of the classic and do a remake. Yes please! In a recent interview with Yahoo! Music, the mini pop diva told the reporter that she is considering it and that it is a really good song. The interview took place while Willow was opening for J. Biebs on his European leg. If this little gal can bring success to her dad’s old song like she did with Whip My Hair, there is no stopping her. I think the remake would be a smash. Nothing like bringing a song back from the late 80′s and introducing to a new generation. Those songs are CLASSIC! You can’t mess with those.

In the interview she talks about lots of things like the meaning of Whip My Hair, how she feels about acting and getting advice from her parents. She’s so cute in the interview and you can absolutely tell that she is Will’s daughter, hands down.

Check out the full interview after the jump.
