Jon Bon Jovi death-hoax starter says he did it because he was 'irritated' at JBJ's lack of musical focus, admits he was wrong

On December 19, the Internet was set ablaze with shocking news: Rocker, actor, philanthropist, and arena-football enthusiast Jon Bon Jovi had suddenly died! What began as a suggestion on Twitter quickly escalated into a huge story, as reporters and well-wishers gathered around the hospital where Bon Jovi had supposedly lost his grip on life.

But just as quickly, the news was outed as a hoax, and Bon Jovi himself cheekily posted a new photograph of himself on Facebook, very much alive, holding a sign that read, “Heaven looks an awful lot like New Jersey.”

Now the originator of the hoax is facing a tremendous backlash from fans. In a conversation with the Asbury Park Press, Jeffery Goho noted that he tweeted about Bon Jovi’s death out of frustration that the singer had spent so much time away from the band pursuing other interests. READ FULL STORY

'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' video from Will.i.am, Jennifer Lopez, and Mick Jagger has arrived. So what's the most ridiculous part?

There is nothing more I could say here to entice you to watch the just-released video for “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever),” the Will.i.am track featuring Mick Jagger and Jennifer Lopez that they (minus a video’d-in Jagger) previously performed on the American Music Awards.

Much like Stefon regularly says on SNL, this video has everything: psychedelic color wars, motorcycle stunts, and instantly appearing screens of Lopez having a pose-off with herself.

I think the fairest thing to say is it’s exactly what you were probably expecting — if what you were expecting was a 2 Fast 2 Furious outtake crossed with E.T. (the movie, not the Katy Perry song, although, honestly, that works too) that at some point around minute 2 turns into a video game portal into the next galaxy — with a shimmying, rocking Mick Jagger to guide the way.

I hope you don’t get motion sickness, because there is definitely an abundance of what appears to be strobe-light-lite once this video begins to defy gravity: READ FULL STORY

Demi Lovato's hair makes a run for it in concert: Watch the video here

The weave: For fairytale princesses, it’s perfect. For everyone else, (even you, pop stars) it’s an accident waiting to happen.

Demi Lovato was performing over the weekend when she had a little situation involving some dancing, some costumes and some runaway extensions. Namely, Ms. Lovato went one hair toss too far, and her weave came tumbling down.

Girl worked it like a pro, though — she doesn’t even blink. It takes some serious attitude to have something that was just on your head now clinging desperately to your sparkly stage blazer and just keep trucking, but she struts it out and finishes the number like a boss.

Check out the blurry video below: (The hair horror begins around :45) READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga chats about her bad romances. Maybe the problem is her oversharing in the press?

Oh, Lady Gaga. I love you, but do you ever have an inner monologue?

Wrapping up her year of flirting with overexposure, Lady Gaga has given an interview to Vanity Fair, and instead of talking Born This Way and bullying, she decided to get personal in a different way and discuss her relationships, or lack thereof, with men.

She told the magazine, “I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I’m in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it’s all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me.”

Interestingly, in her recent Thanksgiving special, Gaga shared that in her very public life, the one thing that is off-limits is her personal relationships (She’s reportedly dating Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney). I guess that decision didn’t extend to trash-talking exs. READ FULL STORY

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

Pitbull countersues Lindsay Lohan for that 'Give Me Everything' lyric

Lindsay Lohan just can’t seem to get out of her own way. After doffing her clothes for a Playboy payout and spending a handful of hours in jail, she came out finding that she had been countersued by Pitbull in response to a defamation suit she filed against him.

Back in August, Lohan filed against Pitbull because of a lyric in his hit “Give Me Everything” that went “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” The beleaguered actress felt that it was an unjust knock against her character (even though she had already been in jail once already), saying “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.” The suit was filed in New York, which has a civil rights law protecting a person from having his or her name exploited for commercial gain.

Since the suit was filed just prior to the MTV Video Music Awards, Pitbull did the gentlemanly thing and invited Lohan to join him at the show, where he was performing the song in question. He even left her a ticket at will call.

Lohan didn’t show up, and apparently Pitbull is done playing games, as he has filed a suit of his own against Lohan. His claims that he did in fact have just cause to write that lyric (because, of course, she actually spent time in jail) and also noted that she was ineligible to file the suit in the state of New York, as she clearly lives in California (or at least does time there).

What do you think? Will everybody drop their suits and walk away friendly? And do you agree with Pitbull and believe the lyric is fair? Give us everything in the comments.

Michael Jackson's deathbed up for auction

The bed where Michael Jackson took his last breath is up for sale. The queen-size piece is among hundreds of items from the Holmby Hills mansion where Jackson spent his final days that are set to hit the auction block next month. “We want to preserve the history of these items,” said celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien, president of Julien’s Auctions, which will sell the various antique furnishings, paintings and sculptures that surrounded the King of Pop as he prepared for a series of comeback concerts. The Carolwood Drive home where Jackson lived with his three children from December 2008 until his death on June 25, 2009, is separately up for sale.

A note from one of the children remains on a chalkboard inside the home’s sprawling kitchen, where three barstools were lined up against the center island — a perfect breakfast spot for the kids. “I (heart) Daddy. SMILE, it’s for free,” the chalk note reads in childlike scrawl. The chalkboard will be sold as-is, and is expected to fetch more than $400. READ FULL STORY

Avril Lavigne and boyfriend Brody Jenner reportedly bloodied in late-night bar fight

What a difference a few hours can make.

On Saturday, Brody Jenner tweeted, “Having the best night with the love of my life @AvrilLavigne so happy right now!! .. #Movember CRUSH!!”

Unfortunately, the best took a turn for the worse when both Jenner and Lavigne were involved in a bloody bar fight later that evening in Los Angeles.

TMZ reports that the tussle occurred outside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel around 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning.  While at first it seemed Jenner had just gotten into a bar brawl, reports now indicate that apparently Lavigne and another unidentified woman got physical, and Jenner was smashed in the head with a bottle while trying to break it up.

Lavigne’s verison of events is a little different. She tweeted yesterday, “I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it. To clear things up I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is f***ed,” and “As in black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts. So not ok to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer.”

Jenner gave his own update Sunday, tweeting, “Interesting Saturday night… Just got of the hospital with a new scar on my face.. Charges/chargers!!!”

Oddly, according to sources, Jenner was the only one involved who spoke to police — the others (including Lavigne) had split by the time police arrived. Jenner apparently refused medical attention and went to the hospital on his own.

It’s not clear what the fight was about and so far no arrests have been made.

UPDATE: Jenner’s manager Eric Podwall released the following statement to EW: “Brody Jenner is recovering at home after being assaulted in an unprovoked attack this past Saturday night.  He appreciates all the calls of support and well wishes.  As this is an ongoing police investigation, there will be no further statements at this time.”

Axl Rose fell down in Mexico City, and it's all your fault

As is wont to happen whenever he steps out the door, Axl Rose’s current tour with Guns N’ Roses hasn’t been the smoothest journey.

There have been multiple complaints of Rose’s vocal weakness, an over-reliance on tracks from the sub-par Chinese Democracy, pacing issues (any show that pauses so that a dude named Bumblefoot can noodle on the theme from The Pink Panther is bound to seem sluggish), and side effects that may or may not include blindness. And on Wednesday night in Mexico City, Rose fell down and went boom in the middle of “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.”

The good news is that Axl didn’t channel his 1992 self and storm off the stage in a huff and shut down the entire concert. But the bad news is that this happened at all. Not because it’s a bummer whenever an artist takes a tumble (even Beyoncé loses her footing sometimes), but because Axl is still doing this, and that people show up. READ FULL STORY

Heart2Heart: Is the new Lance Bass-backed boy band for real? Watch here

Move over, Rebecca Black. The Internet has a new horrifically-bad-but-OMG-it’s-kind-of-catchy tune to get out of their collective heads.

Heart2Heart, a group whose appearance seems to be a leftover relic from the glory days of the boy-band years, released a video this week for their new single, “Facebook Official,” an insightful lyrical examination of the corporate takeover of an increasingly capitalistic society.

Just kidding. It’s about changing your relationship status on Facebook.
