Vinny Guadagnino?s Lyrical Epic Fail

Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino is not only the most boring guy in the house, but has also managed to upset the people at Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network with a ridiculous rap song he wrote. Why is it that everyone on reality TV feels the need to try to start a music career? Vinny is just the latest to give in to the urge and has actually posted a Youtube video of the song. But the people running RAINN aren’t really happy about a certain line in the song. Here is the verse that caused all of the outrage: “Oh you a fan? You wanna take a pic? I like your crack girl … I wanna take a hit. Yeah I’m takin’ it … I’m a get you naked b*tch … We can f**k and make it fit… boomin s**t and slatin’ it. Actin’ like I’m raping it … f** k her til she fakin’ it.” Can you guess which line they had the biggest problem with? So of course he took it down soon after they posted their statement, and he tried to back peddle a little bit. On his Twitter, he said “Whoa! Some people really know [...]

With a Little Luck: A Novel

My good friend Caprice Crane's new book, With a Little Luck, is out today. Yay, Caprice!

It's gotten great reviews:

"Crane is one of the funniest writers of popular fiction around. The dialog (inner and outer) is laugh-out-loud, snort-inducing hilarious . . . Readers will want to cross their fingers and spit while throwing salt over their shoulders if it helps Berry reach her dreams. Highly recommended."

Library Journal

"Fans of Stacy Ballis and Cara Lockwood will appreciate Crane's effortlessly funny style, which is often attempted in popular fiction but is rarely this well executed...Lighthearted and charmingly honest."


"[A] satisfying romantic comedy...[with] real character growth."

—Kirkus Reviews

And even better blurbs:

"Romantic, poignant and funny—this book is a lucky find for lit fans. Caprice Crane is a nimble and gifted storyteller."

—Diablo Cody, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Juno

"A hilarious romp that oozes charm and giddy fun. Caprice Crane is a true talent."

—Molly Jong-Fast, author of The Social Climber's Handbook

"Witty, fast-paced, and sheer fun. Caprice Crane is a master of dialogue. Half the time I was reading this book I was smiling, which made me look like a crazy person on the subway."

—Jancee Dunn, author of Don’t You Forget About Me and Why Is My Mother Getting a Tattoo?

"Absolutely charming and hilarious."

—Missy Peregrym, star of the movie Stick It and ABC's Rookie Blue

"With a Little Luck scores in humor, head, and heart. In other words, it’s a perfect trifecta."

—Karyn Bosnak, author of 20 Times a Lady (soon to be the major motion picture What's Your Number?)

(Omg, who is that last fantastic blurber?) (I meant every word of it.)

And most importantly, she has the cutest dog ever (who likes to video chat with Bev):

Anyway, check it out, buy it—it's fantastic!

Lady Gaga Pulling Double Duty At Grammy Noms Show

'I am so excited to open and close the Grammy Nomination concert!' Gaga reveals via Twitter.
By James Montgomery

Much like the pair of exclamation marks inexplicably attached to its title, Lady Gaga will pull double duty on Wednesday night's (November 30) Grammy Nominations Live!! telecast, serving as both the opening and closing act.

That's according to the Mother Monster herself, who took to her Twitter account to break the news following rehearsals, and, in the process, also revealed that one of her two performances was going to be a collaborative effort.

"I am so excited to open and close the Grammy Nomination concert tomorrow night!" Gaga wrote. "What a blast rehearsing with Jennifer [Nettles] and Kristian [Bush]. Sugarland!"

Gaga and Sugarland will share the stage with a host of other big-name acts, including Rihanna, Usher, Lupe Fiasco, Ludacris and country crooner Jason Aldean. The event will once again be hosted by LL Cool J, who this year will also take part in a special tribute to the classic hip-hop track "The Message," joining Common and members of the Furious Five.

Of course, aside from all of the performances, the telecast also serves as the official kickoff to Grammy season, with nominees in several categories to be announced on air Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET on CBS. Gaga is expected to be in contention for a slew of awards, including Album of the Year for Born This Way, and Record and Song of the Year for "Yoü and I." She'll face stiff competition from this year's Grammy fave, Adele, not to mention fellow females Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj.

Catch the special performance — along with Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Usher, Ludacris, Sugarland and more — at 10 p.m. ET/PT tonight on CBS.

Michael Buble Beats Out Nickelback, Rihanna on Billboard Charts

Rihanna's Talk That Talk came in at #3.
By Gil Kaufman

Clearly, the holiday season is upon us. How do we know? Crooner Michael Buble's five-week-old Christmas album will sneak into the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart thanks to sales of 227,000, leapfrogging over a pair of new releases. Just a hair back at #2 is 's Here and Now, which moved just under 227,000 copies and Rihanna's Talk That Talk, which hit #3 after selling 198,000, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.

Also debuting in the top 10 were Mary J. Blige's : My Life II ... The Journey Continues
 (#5, 156,000) and Daughtry's Break the Spell (#8, 129,000). The rest of the top 10: Drake, Take Care (#4, 173,000, down 73 percent), Justin Bieber, Under the Mistletoe (#6, 142,000), Adele, 21 (#7, 140,000), Scotty McCreery, Clear as Day (#9, 88,000) and Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto (#10, 79,000).

Just outside the top 10, Taylor Swift came in at #11 with Speak Now World Tour Live (77,000), just ahead of new boy band TV hotties Big Time Rush, whose Elevate was at #12 thanks to sales of 70,000. The soundtrack to the new Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show, Immortal, landed at #24 (43,000), while new Shady crew member Yelawolf was back at #27 with Radioactive (41,000). "American Idol" finalist rocker James Durbin squeaked into the top 40 at #36 with his debut, Memories of a Beautiful Disaster (28,000).

A number of top 40 acts seemed to be getting a holiday boost, including Maroon 5 (up 44 spots and 351 percent to #20), Lady Gaga (up 51 spots and 416 percent to #21), Selena Gomez & The Scene (up 39 spots and 248 percent to #31) and Nicki Minaj (up 47 spots and 250 percent to #50).

While Gaga's Born This Way continues to move units, fans were a bit less interested in her A Very Gaga Holiday digital EP, which landed with a thunk at #51 on modest sales of 22,000.

While she didn't reach the top on Billboard, Rihanna did manage to hit #1 on the iTunes album charts, where she beat out Drake, Nickelback, Coldplay and Buble. At #6 was Adele, followed by Daughtry, Blige, Gaga's Thanksgiving album and a greatest hits disc from Motor City rocker Bob Seger.

LMFAO ruled the iTunes singles chart with "Sexy and I Know It," which beat out "It Will Rain" from Bruno Mars, Rihanna's "We Found Love," Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" and Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away." Rounding out the list were: Adele, "Someone Like You," Maroon 5, "Moves Like Jagger," Gym Class Heroes, "Stereo Hearts," David Guetta, "Without You" and LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem."

Next week's newcomers include Hot Chelle Rae Trey Songz, and live CD/DVDs from Adele and Beyonce.

Lady Gaga 'Doing Prep' For Tour, Next Album

'She's always doing 25,000 things in a row,' DJ White Shadow tells MTV News of Gaga's 2012 plans.
By Jocelyn Vena

Lady Gaga is hard at work. The Mother Monster is already coming up with ideas for 2012's Born This Way Tour and even thinking about her next album. When MTV News caught up with pal and musical collaborator DJ White Shadow, he talked about what the Haus has in store for Gaga.

"She's doing prep for the next round of touring, and she's always doing 25,000 things in a row," he told MTV News last week when he stopped by to chat about the opening of Gaga's pop-up holiday shop at Barneys. "But I think the main focus for her after this season is going to be prepping up for the show, touring new songs for the record."

Gaga has hinted that she'd like to get Elton John on this next record, but, right now, anything goes. White Shadow — who has worked with Gaga extensively on Born This Way, including on the tracks "Born This Way" and "Americano" — is ready to drop everything to collaborate with Gaga again.

"I want to try and be as close to it as possible, that way I don't have to wake up at 4 o'clock in the morning and fly to L.A. or wherever or Japan or wherever she's starting to do stuff," he explained. "Maybe when the tour starts, she's working all the time. I send her stuff and she sends stuff. She's always working on something. It just depends. I know she likes to write when she's on the road, [so maybe she'll make a] new album during the tour."

Given the pair's track record, expect across-the-board sounds on the next project. "The kind of stuff that I send her, some of it is so crazy that I don't know what you'd call it," he said. "When I make stuff ... I know what's for her and what's not for her. Some of it's structured as songs and some of it is structured as madness, and she goes through it like a gold miner."

What are you expecting from Gaga's next album? Let us know in the comments below!

Justin Bieber Accuser Will Submit Baby For DNA Test

Mariah Yeater's lawyer in paternity case says that while lawsuit has been dropped, negotiations for settlement are ongoing.
By John Mitchell

Justin Bieber reportedly took a DNA test Friday in response to the paternity case brought against him by Mariah Yeater, a 20-year-old California woman alleging the singer fathered her 4-month-old son, and now Yeater's attorney tells TMZ his client will submit her baby for testing.

Late last month, Yeater filed a lawsuit claiming she became pregnant by Bieber during a backstage encounter following his October 25, 2010, concert at the Los Angeles Staples Center. Yeater withdrew her paternity suit a few weeks later and was dropped as a client by her initial legal team in mid-November. She went on to hire new counsel, led by Chicago-based attorney Jeffrey Leving, who told MTV News that while the suit had been dropped, negotiations for a settlement were ongoing.

Bieber's legal team vehemently denies the allegations and has stated from the get-go that it might pursue legal action to protect the pop star from further false claims. "As we've said from the beginning, it's sad that someone would fabricate such a malicious, defamatory and demonstrably false claim," Bieber's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, said in a statement. "We'll continue to consider all of our options to protect Justin."

What Are Bieber's Legal Options Now That Yeater Has Dropped Her Suit? After reports surfaced that Bieber took a DNA test in New Jersey, TMZ reported Yeater was deliberately avoiding having her child tested because she knew the results would serve as evidence against her, should Bieber's team file suit for defamation or abuse of the legal process. Her lawyer is now dispelling that notion, telling the gossip site that his client "can't wait" to submit her young son for testing.

Leving, however, claimed he has a problem with the DNA test Bieber reportedly submitted because a member of his team was not present when it was administered. The lawyer said he has been in touch with Bieber's legal counsel, headed by Howard Weitzman, and hopes both teams can reach an agreement on DNA-testing protocol.

Bieber has maintained a positive attitude throughout the ordeal. He has not altered the promotional tour for his holiday album, Under the Mistletoe, including a recent performance at the American Music Awards and on the "Today" show, and told MTV News last week at the Pencils of Promise charity event that he's doing "great."

Earlier that day, he spoke of the paternity case briefly with New York's Z100 radio station, saying, "As far as the whole baby situation, it's unfortunate that it had to happen like that. People make false accusations, but things happen in this industry, and you have to keep your head high and be positive."

Avril Lavigne 'Re-Inspired' By 'X Factor' Mentor L.A. Reid

'I never had that connection with anyone ever again,' she tells MTV News of label exec, who signed her at age 15.
By Jocelyn Vena

Avril Lavigne made headlines earlier this month when she signed with Epic Records, reuniting her with early mentor L.A. Reid.

The "X Factor" judge helped shape the early part of the Canadian pop star's career when he discovered her at the top of the millennium and signed her to Arista, launching her to pop-star status. Now that Reid is at Epic, he decided it was a good time to get back together with the singer.

Lavigne couldn't be happier that Reid snatched her up.

"It's really exciting for me, because L.A. Reid signed me. He met me when I was 15, and he signed me on the spot. We did my first album together, and it was really successful and then what happens in the record industry, you know, changes are made," she told MTV News. "We didn't get to work together, and I was so bummed out, 'cause I never had that connection with anyone ever again, like, my whole career at the record company."

Ever since they were split up, Lavigne and Reid have hoped to reunite. "Every time we'd see each other, [we'd be like] 'We want to work together again,' so we've been waiting for this day," she said. "Now he is the president of Epic Records, and I just was able to move over, and so he's taking over for me and we're working together again."

Thanks to their reunion, Lavigne is able to focus on what she does best: make music. "We're also starting music for a new record for 2012," she said. "So I feel, like, really re-inspired, and I feel like it happened at the right time, 'cause I was really discouraged with record-company stuff on my last album. It was not something I was looking forward to dealing with again. Now I'm so excited."

Earlier this year, Lavigne released her album Goodbye Lullaby, which features her current single, the Max Martin-produced ballad "Wish You Were Here."

Do Foo Fighters Know Robert Pattinson From Robert Plant?

During band's rehearsal break for Sunday's Movie Awards, we put Foos to the test.
By Ryan J. Downey, with reporting by Jim Cantiello

The Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl

UNIVERSAL CITY, California — Hard rock, heavy metal, hardcore and punk have long gone hand-in-hand with evil wizards, magic, vampires and werewolves. And with a collective sub-cultural pedigree that includes stints in the Germs, No Use for a Name, Sunny Day Real Estate, Scream and some band called Nirvana, you'd think the Foo Fighters — set to perform at Sunday's Movie Awards — would know their "Potter" from their Zeppelin. Certainly they can recognize a "wand" reference and pinpoint its origin?

Right? Before we put MTV News' magically crafted trivia to the band, it seemed safe to assume the Foos would accurately distinguish between the words of Harry Potter, a "Twilight" character and Led Zeppelin. But was their underground nerd cred blown to shreds? Read on — and click the video! — to see how the Foo Fighters fared when we caught up with them on the Universal Studios lot, shortly after they finished rehearsing their Movie Awards performance.

Our own Jim Cantiello played dungeon master as Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear were given a series of semi-famous lines and asked whether they originated with "Harry Potter," the "Twilight Saga" or the lyrics of hard-rock pioneers Led Zeppelin.

Here's a sampling of a few of those one-liners:

» "The elder wand, the most powerful wand ever made."

» "Why don't you let me be yours ever truly? Can I make your garden grow?"

» "You're lying, Dolores! You mustn't tell lies!"

Can you guess whether the lines above came from the "Potter" flicks, "Twilight" or Robert Plant?

Watch as the Foos try their best to do exactly that. Then tune in to the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday to catch the Foo Fighters rock the stage with their new single, "Walk."

Will wizards, vampires or dream thieves steal the 2011 MTV Movie Awards? Find out June 5, when the 20th annual show airs live at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Tune in at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT that night for the "America's Best Dance Crew" finale and Movie Awards pre-show, loaded with live action from the red carpet, exclusive movie clips and a special edition of "After Hours."

Back in August, Beyoncé played four hotly hyped, sold-out shows at New York's Roseland Ballroom, the same venue where Radiohead played a two-night stand last month. If you weren't one of the lucky few who snagged a ticket to Beyoncé's celebration of her 4 album, don't worry. The singer will release a new concert DVD, "Live at Roseland," on November 21.

The DVD, which captures the "4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé" event, will be sold exclusively at Walmart and includes 26 songs from her cabaret show and concert, which took place shortly before she officially announced her pregnancy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. The DVD not only includes a montage of B's finest tunes, both with Destiny's Child and as a solo star, but also features the singer candidly revealing the stories behind the greatest moments in her career.

In addition to a retrospective of hits, Beyoncé also brought things up to date during those string of Roseland concerts, playing her 2011 album, 4, in its entirety.

Jay-Z's favorite lady, who just dropped her video for "Party," will also release, on November 29, a deluxe DVD package, "Live at Roseland: The Elements of 4." The pack will include plenty of extras that Beyoncé fans should go crazy over, including a two-disc DVD featuring the concert, bonus footage, previously unreleased videos, a booklet and a video anthology.

November 21 is shaping up to be a big day for pop fans. Lady Gaga releases her very own concert DVD special that day, in addition to the Born This Way the Remix album. Even better, she'll bundle those two new items with her original Born This Way album for the ultimate Gaga gift, called Born This Way: The Collection.

Justin Bieber Tops Kim Kardashian As Bing's Most-Searched Person

Bieber overtakes last year's champ on search engine's annual list of the year's most-Binged people.
By James Montgomery

Having already bested Lady Gaga in the race to 2 billion YouTube views, Justin Bieber can now lay claim to another e-title: He's just been named the year's most-searched person on Internet search engine Bing, edging out his old pal Kim Kardashian for the title.

Yes, Bieber sits atop Bing's annual list of the most-searched people of 2011, making the leap from #6 on last year's list and knocking Kardashian down from the top spot, which she held last year. Jennifer Aniston came in at #3 on the list (up from #9 in 2010), and a whole host of other females — including Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus — round out the top 10.

Bieber was the only male to make Bing's most-searched people list, which last year featured Jesse James, Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods and Barack Obama (who plummeted from #5 to #49 in 2011 ... always a good sign in the lead-up to an election) in the top 10. Also dropping out of the top 10 were actress Sandra Bullock and reality TV mother-of-the-year Kate Gosselin.

Not surprisingly, Bieber also tops Bing's list of most-searched musicians ... and not surprisingly, he's also the only male to make the top 10. JB bested Katy Perry to take the top spot, followed by Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez made the list at #6, just ahead of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.

Britney Spears: Trying to "Master Love"

Even with a jam-packed, non-stop schedule, Britney Spears still manages to find the time to sit down and fit in a good book every now and then.

While chatting with UK?s Stylist magazine, the ?Circus? star revealed that she?s been reading The Mastery of Love, which was written a decade ago by Mexican spiritualist author Don Miguel Ruiz.

"It's basically an analysis of love and what it means to love," Spears explained. "It goes through all the different aspects of love ? who you are as a person, knowing yourself before you even attempt to love anyone else, that sort of thing. It's really well-written and thought-provoking."

When asked if she would recommend the book to anyone in a relationship, Brit said, "Yes definitely, it's very cool. It's not so much about learning something; it's one of those things where you already know this stuff, but it's good to instill it in yourself again."

This holiday season, fans looking forward to next year's release of "The Dark Knight Rises" should be thankful for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and all the press its star Gary Oldman is doing.

MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Oldman, who stars in both of those films, on the red carpet for the Gotham Independent Film Awards and noticed something different about his face. The iconic Commissioner Gordon mustache was missing. After wrapping the film recently, Oldman lost the mustache in favor of a cleaner look.

"The Gordon mustache is retired," Oldman confirmed. "They gave me a shadow box, and it has my badge, my glasses and the mustache. He is retired."

Empire magazine's recent on-set feature dropped the detail that "The Dark Knight Rises" will take place seven years after the end of its predecessor "The Dark Knight." This obviously leaves a lot of time out of the story and a lot of changes for the characters, including Gordon. Oldman said that his character has a return to an earlier form for the trilogy's finale.

"He's a little reminiscent of the Gordon you see in 'Batman Begins.' They've tidied up the city, but there's still work to be done. He's very world-weary," Oldman said.

One of the more mysterious cast additions, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as beat cop John Blake, meant an extra man in Gordon's Gotham PD. Oldman described his time working with Gordon-Levitt as a little distracting, but in a good way. "Someone that talented, I do these scenes with him and you can't put a pin through an insincere moment," he said. "It's wonderful. You come out of character sometimes because ... you're in the scene and you find your head going, 'Wow. He's pretty good.' "

Check out everything we've got on "The Dark Knight Rises."

Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Cover Glamour January 2012

As they continue to intrigue the public and rule the reality TV world, the Kardashian sisters have landed themselves the cover of the January 2012 issue of Glamour.

Available on newsstands December 6th, . Kim, Kourtney and Khloe posed for a fun-filled Ben Watts shot spread gracing the magazine's pages with the headline on the New Year's Special reading "There's no judgment between sisters."

A preview of the Kardashian sisters' interview - in which Kim addresses her split/romantic aspirations - is as follows. For more, be sure to visit Glamour!

Kim Kardashian: ...I think I?ll always be a hopeless romantic.

Glamour: What do you mean by that?

Kim Kardashian: It means that I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.

Khlo� Kardashian: I love Kim?s belief in love and the fact that she feels so strongly about it. She has that dream every girl has.

Kim Kardashian: Well, I don?t think I have it right now.

Khlo� Kardashian: Which is fine, but I?m your sister and I know why you don?t have it right now. But I know you will get it again.

Kim Kardashian: I hope I do. But by then I hope maybe I?m a little bit more realistic.

Glamour: Realistic about what?

Kim Kardashian: The fact that what I want isn?t possible.

Khlo� Kardashian: What, a guy on a white horse coming to get you? That doesn?t happen!

Kim Kardashian: I don?t know. I always wanted what Mom and Dad had. And at first I was like, I want six kids. Then I went down to four, then I was down to three?and now I?m like, maybe I won?t have any. Maybe I?ll just be a good aunt.

Khlo� Kardashian: But Mom and Dad got a divorce, and she met Bruce. And you were a child; you don?t know what Mom and Dad had. As an outsider looking in, it probably looked like paradise.

Kim Kardashian: At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I?m not supposed to have kids and all that.

Khlo� Kardashian: Oh my God. Don?t be dramatic all of a sudden!

Kim Kardashian: That?s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that?s OK.
