Conrad Murray on 'Today': 'Something happened when I was not in that room'

Just two days after Dr. Conrad Murray was declared guilty in Michael Jackson’s June 2009 death, the Today show has released a preview of a sitdown between Murray and correspondent Savannah Guthrie. Guthrie’s chat with Murray — filmed before the verdict was handed down — will air in two parts on Thursday and Friday morning in advance of a two-hour special Michael Jackson and the Doctor, which Murray filmed with U.K. Broadcaster Steve Hewlett in November 2009, before he was charged in Jackson’s death. The documentary features behind-the-scenes footage of Murray’s defense team as well as a particularly unsettling set of photos of Jackson’s disordered home. In his Today interview, the doctor steadfastly maintained his innocence, essentially blaming Jackson’s addiction for the singer’s death. See exactly what Murray had to say and watch the full preview after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift contemplating legal action over supposed topless photo

Taylor Swift does not take personal attacks lightly (after all, she wrote a song and filmed a video in response to a bad review), which is why her team sent a cease-and-desist letter to a gossip website because of a supposed topless photo of the 21-year-old country crossover superstar.

Over the weekend, Celebrity Jihad posted a photo of a curly-haired blonde girl lying topless across a bed, claiming that it was a leaked photo of Swift. Shortly thereafter, Celebrity Jihad received a letter from Swift’s legal team asking that the photo be taken down, insisting that it was not in fact Swift.

The picture remains up at Celebrity Jihad, despite the site’s acknowledgement of Swift’s protest. A formal lawsuit could be the next step.

Here’s the thing: The picture obviously isn’t Taylor Swift, so this whole thing should theoretically go away pretty quickly. Still, with a hacker already arrested for unearthing nude photos of the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Christina Aguilera, the message to young female stars remains steadfast: Nobody can steal your nude photos if said pictures don’t exist. Though if they can’t, apparently, they’re happy to fake it.

Taylor Swift says new album is ‘coming along really well’ for next year. Can she possibly top ‘Speak Now’?

Cyndi Lauper flubs a line of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at U.S. Open

It seems that tricky old “Star-Spangled Banner” has gotten the best of yet another pop star.

Before the semifinal match between Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki at the U.S. Open in New York City on Saturday, Cyndi Lauper sang the National Anthem, but the ’80s pop icon made a noticeable mistake during her rendition.(Paging Christina Aguilera!) Instead of the line, “O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming” Lauper belted out, “O’er the ramparts, we watched as our flag was still streaming.” Listen below: READ FULL STORY

MTV VMAs wildest moments: EW predicts what's coming this Sunday

With the 2011 MTV VMAs just two days away, it got us thinking: Boy, some nutty things have happened over the years. Butts have been exposed, pop queens have kissed, and there have been just plain awkward moments.

The question now is what’s going to happen next: Maybe Lady Gaga will wear a live animal—who knows? So while we wait for the madness to ensue, let’s speculate! Below are some things that just might happen.

Award Theft

Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci” loses to Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” in the Best New Artist category. While the band accepts their award, ‘Shawn storms the stage (kind of like this guy) and steals the mic and the award, calling them and fellow nominees Tyler, The Creator, Wiz Khalifa, and Big Sean “basic b—-es.” Tyler, of course, is the only one who finds this funny.

Check out the rest after the jump.


Sinead O'Connor posts personal ad on her own website: 'Am in desperate need of a very sweet sex-starved man.' See her demands!

Sinead O’Connor has kept a relatively low profile in the last few years. I always assumed she was living the leisurely life of the quietly aging singer-songwriter, composing tone poems in a lovely estate somewhere in the countryside.

But readers, I was wrong — dead wrong!

In a column originally written for the Irish Independent, O’Connor explains that she’s been feeling a little bit unfulfilled lately. “My situation sexually/affectionately speaking is so dire that inanimate objects are starting to look good,” she says, adding, “I tell you, yams are looking like the winners.” After admitting to considering joining an Irish dating agency, she just comes right out and makes her plea: “Am in desperate need of a very sweet sex-starved man.” And she has requirements, including:

–“He must be no younger than 44.”

–“Must not be named Brian or Nigel.” READ FULL STORY

Kanye West's 'Monster' video is finally here -- starring two Nicki Minajs and a lady werewolf: Watch it here!

Back in December, an unfinished version of Kanye West’s video for “Monster,” a standout (and star-packed) track from West’s best-of-2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) found its way onto the Internet.

Though it was obviously still rough—scenes and effects were clearly missing—the idea came across, with disturbing images of apparently dead women lying in bed with West and hanging from chains by their necks.

West finally released the official, finished version of the clip a full six months after that initial leak, and it’s just as disturbing and fascinating as the rough cut.

Check it out below, though be warned—the lyrics are uncensored, and the images are pretty dark (and though there’s no scandalous nudity, the ladies are scantily-clad enough to also make it unsafe for work).


Panic! at the Disco frontman Brendon Urie breaks ankle onstage, still finishes the show: Watch the video here

No one can ever say that Panic! at the Disco singer Brendon Urie isn’t hardcore.

During a concert on Sunday night in Pompano Beach, Florida, Urie came down hard in the midst of a typically manic performance and managed to break his ankle.

While still onstage, he removed his boot and sock to assess the damage; a giant carbuncle had already formed. “What does this mean?” he asked the crowd between songs. “There’s like a softball in my foot.”

Luckily, fans caught the whole thing on tape, which you can check out the slightly gruesome video below:


Chris Brown flips out, walks off set on 'Good Morning America': What happened?

Chris Brown flew into a rage on the set of Good Morning America earlier today, smashing a window and storming out of the studio shirtless after GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts kept directing the conversation back to his felony assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna two years ago.

The 21-year-old R&B singer waited until his interview and first performance was over before storming into his dressing room, where insiders say he began shouting and tearing it apart.

Before ABC’s building security arrived, Brown somehow shattered the window in his dressing room, smashing it up enough that glass fell onto the sidewalk below. Brown then tore off his shirt and left the building before a second scheduled performance. Watch the interview below: READ FULL STORY

Kanye West sparks controversy with tweet about abortion

kanye-westImage Credit: Joe Kohen/WireImage.comNothing is off-limits on Kanye West’s infamously scatterbrained Twitter feed, where the rapper has opined on everything from the genius of Leonard Bernstein to the difficulty of sleeping on fur pillows.

But the scandal-prone pop star may have a fresh controversy on his hands thanks to a recent tweet about the hot-button topic of abortion. Warning: West’s opinions and language may be offensive to some readers, so continue reading at your own discretion. READ FULL STORY

Lil Kim's album cover depicts decapitation of Nicki Minaj-like figure

BLACK-FRIDAY-MIXTAPEThe feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj just got ugly. Rather, it’s gotten bloody.

The new album cover for Kim’s Black Friday, which has been available for purchase via PayPal since yesterday, leaves little doubt that the pink-wigged head on the floor is an allusion to Kim’s nemesis Nicki Minaj — although no one has confirmed, a.k.a. we can’t prove anything. What we can prove is the following: Cartoon Lil Kim likes swords and leather, cartoon Lil Kim knows how to use swords, and magically, cartoon Lil Kim has the ability to strike a pose before the blood splatter has hit the floor. Fascinating.

Calls to Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj’s camps have not been returned.

While we wait, what do you think of the cover, Mixers? Too far?
