Amos Lee takes the honor of Billboard’s #1 selling album of the week with a 40k shift of his latest album, Mission Bell.  This marks Lee’s first #1 album and also breaks another sad record: official lowest album sales to top the charts since Billboard began the rankings in 1991.  Rock band Cake previously held that title just a few weeks ago when their latest sold 44k.  Guess there isn’t any new music we care to buy at the moment?…

I won’t go into great detail about the new tattoo that my friend (who will remain anonymous, though his name rhymes with Thristopher Jett) recently got in a parlor in NYC’s West Village. If this was my arm, the artist that created this would be out of a job and the joint would be closed for business until further notice.  I would’ve raised hell.

Thristopher happens to be a Texan gentleman, so such events never happened.  He’ll be going back to get it fixed soon – hopefully this artist has studied magic.  Moral of the story:  Conduct a spelling bee with your tattoo artist before sitting down in the chair, or you might be scarred for life.

(Thristopher might regret texting this photo over to me, but the story had to be told…)

On My To-Do In 2012…

The 10th Annual No-Pants Subway Ride took place last weekend and 5k New Yorkers showed up in the cold to strip down and do nothing but ride the subway.  This should be on every New Yorker’s bucket list.

Back in early July, Julia Stiles becamse the face of Stoli.  I’m not making the connection here – she’s the next “original”…still, not sure.

I would like to shake the hand of the PR mastermind behind this entire story because it’s pretty damn genius.  Given T.I.’s latest criminal history, it’ll be interesting to see if this will help turn it all around…

ATLANTA – Police got unexpected help talking a suicidal man down from an Atlanta skyscraper when rapper T.I. showed up. Officer James Polite says the hip-hop star joined the crowd outside the 22-story building Wednesday and told officers he wanted to help. Police said the man agreed to come down in exchange for a few minutes face-to-face with T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris.

 

Alyssa Milano didn’t hold anything back during the February 19th press conference/public apology from Tiger Woods.  Her tweet below is one of many reasons why she rocks:

“Can some1 explain to me how a manslut gets the same network coverage as our president or a telethon for #Haiti?  Anyone?”

Well put.

Remember when Milano attempted a career in music?  She legit had four studio albums to her name, and might have been huge in Japan.  Check it out:

A woman’s love handles have reportedly saved her life in Atlantic City. According to the victim, “I want to be as big as I can if it’s going to stop a bullet.” 

I guess we all have different goals in life and we shouldn’t judge.

Well, that only took two days.  Tila has shared that she’s back to feed my addiction.

And now back to following the crazy.  http://twitter.com/OFFICIALtila

I have no idea why I’m even writing this.

I don’t have an account on Twitter (yet), but after Casey Johnson’s death and this whole “wifey” story surrounding Tila Tequila, I found myself constantly checking out Tila’s Twitter page to track the crazy.  She’s clinically insane and should be treated.  Sadly, her deep thoughts will no longer live on Twitter every minute of every day because she’s completely lost it and has deleted her account. 

This news came following her twitter-feud against The Game, claiming he’s the father of her unborn child while The Game is 100% denying the allegations.  Rather than taking a quiet exit, she made it a point to post a blog entry on her site that takes one final stab at her favorite person, Perez Hilton – or as she likes to call him: Piggy Perez. Check out her reason behind deleting her account here – where she shares, among other things, that she’s starting her own celebrity blog to compete with Hilton’s – www.tilatequilaOMG.com launches in three weeks.  I don’t think it’ll happen, and I give it two more days before she starts a new Twitter account. 

Highlights from her blog:

I FINALLY deleted my twitter page!  I’m sure A LOT of people would NEVER have thought I would do such a thing, but guess what? I DID!  I have had a lot of fun on there and enjoyed the ups and down of being on Twitter.  I was a daily dose of Entertainment for people whether they loved me or hated me.  Regardless, I was always the top 5 Tweeters with the most influence on Twitter!  So why did I decided to delete it??? Well cuz Piggy face Perez is on there and he’s so fat and ugly I just felt disgusted being on the same community with him.  He is a gross sweaty pig and he doesn’t even own his website since 2007! As a matter of fact, HE DOESN’T EVEN BLOG ON THERE SINCE 2007!!!!!!!!!!!! He is just a waste of space!!!

hahahaha! JK that’s not why I deleted my page, I just had to throw that in there since he’s such an idiot.  But anyway the real reason why I deleted my Twitter page is because why do I need to be on there anyway??  Miley Cyrus was right!  Everything I tweet about turns into some stupid headline!  I could say something & the media will turn it all around and make it into something else!  They watch your every move!  Miley Did the right thing to delete her Twitter page, and damn…who woulda thought??? TILA TEQUILA DELETED HER TWITTER PAGE TOO??  The SUPPOSED ATTENTION WHORE??? 

I still can’t believe she’s a Texan.  Way to represent.

Here’s an excerpt from Time Out New York’s sex column Get Naked by Jamie Bufalino. The guy mentioned here takes the award for most creative way to use Michael Jackson’s death for your own personal benefit.  It’s amazing.

Q: I am a 27-year-old female who recently broke up with her boyfriend of five months. We’ve known each other for two and a half years; we were friends for a long time and then recently started dating. I thought all was good until the death of Michael Jackson. When he died, I did not hear from my boyfriend for three days. We had made plans to meet my brother for brunch on that Saturday and he completely stood me up—no call, text or e-mail. He eventually texted me saying he’s upset by MJ’s death and just needs time alone. Then, after not speaking for another three days, he texted me to see if I was free after work. I said, “Yes, let’s talk later.” He never responded. I wrote him an e-mail the next day to end it, but I don’t know if he ever saw it. He also de-friended two of my friends on Facebook this weekend. What are your thoughts?

A: I have a supersensitive bullshit detector, and it’s going ape-shit right now. Give me a break. Who goes AWOL from their girlfriend for three whole days because of the sudden death of a celebrity? Sketchy people, that’s who! Who knows what your boyfriend was up to, but he certainly wasn’t on a truth-telling spree. Okay, listen up, everyone: Ten times out of ten, the “I was too busy or upset or drunk or depressed to take ten seconds to telecommunicate” excuse is bogus. Always has been and always will be, particularly as the ways to communicate become more and more varied and omnipresent. If I were you, I’d break up with him just for not coming up with a better excuse. You deserve something more intricate and detailed—perhaps something involving the Russian mafia, chloroform and being forced into sex slavery. Don’t break up by e-mail, though—that’s tacky. Have at least one more face-to-face and try to get to the bottom of his erratic behavior. If his excuses don’t get much more believable, cut him loose—pronto.
