It seems like she just got in the game yesterday, but following the deletion of her Twitter rumors are flying!
Dick Clark — famed TV producer, and “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” host — died from a massive heart attack this morning … TMZ has learned.
Clark’s rep tells TMZ, the TV icon had been in St. John’s hospital in L.A. after undergoing an outpatient procedure last night. Clark suffered the “massive” heart attack following the procedure. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.
Clark was 82.
Clark’s health had been on the decline since he suffered a significant stroke in 2004 — forcing him to retire from his hosting gig at “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” which he created in 1972.
Ryan Seacrest took over in 2006. Dick has appeared on the show sporadically ever since.
Before suffering a stroke, Clark told Larry King he also suffered from Type 2 diabetes.
Clark was married 3 times — and has 3 children from his first two marriages. He is survived by his current wife Kari Wigton.
Swoon away ladies, he’s legal now.
The 45-second teaser for “Boyfriend” premiered on The Voice last night, and if you missed it, thank god for YouTube. (Seriously, I really have no idea what we did pre-YouTube.) Needless to say, it’s getting everyone hot and bothered. Never before have we seen Bieber this sexy!
What do you think of this new edgy Biebs?!
It was only a matter of time before a breakdown.
Nicki Minaj has deleted her Twitter account over a fan’s alleged music piracy. Minaj made a big show of deleting her account, posting several tweets over how she blocked a fan for posting “leaked music.”
She posted “Posted leaked music! *deletin twttr*” and “Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good ****ing bye.”
However, reports are surfacing that the fan only put up links to snippets from her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – snippets that are also available through outlets such as iTunes.
So basically, Nicki deleted her account for free publicity due to low album sales.. and will come back in the next 30 days. That’s how I read this.
I don’t know how to even describe this video. SO MANY QUESTIONS!
Basically this is a holographic version of Tupac performing with Snoop at Coachella.. think very 80′s Jem.
I can’t decide if this is awesome or super creepy. I mean it’s pretty jarring that Snoop is performing/interacting with his dead friend as an animated 3D character. And did they take this from an old performance at Coachella or did someone voiceover Tupac’s intro?
And why in the world did no one tell Tupac those boots and jeans aren’t in style anymore?!
What do you think?!
A New York man, Quamine Taylor of Queens, was arrested on April 1st for breaking into Sean “Diddy” Combs’ East Hampton mansion, where he apparently he ate food, drank liquor and wore the rap mogul’s clothes.
He’s being held in the Suffolk County Jail on trespassing and petit larceny charges. The unemployed 30-year-old has not posted $2,000 bail.
East Hampton Town Police say they were called to the house after a caretaker found Taylor inside.
According to the police report, Taylor told cops he snuck into the place through an unlocked basement door and proceeded to eat food, drink Diddy’s soda and liquor and then got into a bed for nearly 24 hours. Quamine was eventually arrested for trespassing … and later told the NY Post he had been “going to the house from time to time since 2001 … I stay there a lot, but Sean gets funny sometimes about me staying there.”
Taylor’s mom told the paper her son suffers from mental illness and recently went off his meds. He was arraigned on trespassing and petit-larceny charges and is currently still in custody.
Whether you’re hosting a charity event, planning a concert or rally, or opening up a milkshake store in Dubai, there’s a celeb for that.
Yahoo released a list of several “stars” and the seemingly exorbitant amount of money they think their time is worth.
A B-lister for your A-list event? You’ve been carrying on a one-sided romance with celebrities for years, watching them on big screens and small, dancing to their chart-topping singles and tweeting at every twist and turn of their private lives.
Isn’t it time you brought one home?
Thanks to the explosion of cable programming, viral videos and reality TV shows such as “American Idol,” “The Bachelor,” “Survivor” and “Jersey Shore,” there are more “celebrities” than ever before — all anxious to schmooze at your fundraiser, croon at your wedding or shout “Mazel tov!” at your bar or bat mitzvah.
“There is a celebrity for every budget,” says Mike Esterman, a celebrity booking agent based in Washington, D.C., who places stars at public and private events around the world. “Anybody can buy a celebrity host or appearance for anything.”
Here’s some of the prices:
Lady Gaga – $2 million
Metallica – $1.5 million
Pitbull – $300,000
Charlie Sheen – $250,000
Ne-Yo – $200,000
Kim Kardashian – $125,000
Deena Nicole (Jersey Shore) – $8,000
Mike “The Situation” – $25,000
Playboy models – $1,000 to $1,500
AND! In addition to their appearance fee, plan to pay for what Esterman calls the simple four: the flight, hotel, ground transportation and food. Some artists won’t fly commercial, so you may also have to spring for a private jet.
“Kim Kardashian is requested every week but not affordable to everyone,” he says. “She recently did a grand opening for the Millions of Milkshakes store at the Dubai Mall, and there was a mob scene.” (To put that in perspective guys that like 6.5 million a year..)
Other A-listers simply don’t do personal gigs for any amount of money.
“An Ashton Kutcher, Tom Cruise, Justin Timberlake, Josh Duhamel — they’re not the dog-and-pony type. That’s not their image, not what they do,” says Esterman. “It also could be branding; some people wouldn’t do that because they feel this ‘come meet me live’ is beneath them.”
The guy who created Punk’d thinks appearances are beneath him?
But even celebrities who always say “no” might change their mind for the right offer… what do you think of this? Outrageous or totally worth the price?
I wish I could buy celebs for what they are worth, then sell them for what they think they are. haha. I’d be a billionaire.
Apparently, some woman does these celebrity transformations. Using only make-up, see how she becomes Dake. Pretty crazy.

There’s been several rumors floating around that Alec Baldwin is departing from his show “30 Rock.” Did he just confirm it on twitter?
On Sunday, Alec’s alleged stalker was arrested in New York. As a result, camera crews have stationed themselves outside his pad.
Alec took to Twitter Wednesday to voice his anger — particularly with his own network:
“Outside my apt today, along side the other stalkers from the tabloid press, a crew that identified themselves as being with the ‘Today Show.’”
“The television crew camped outside my apt said they were with the ‘Today Show.’ #howthemightyhavefallen”
His ran went on, “I haven’t appeared on the ‘Today Show’ in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt? A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the ‘Today Show?’”
“No one from NBC contacted me until the ‘Today Show’ arrived at my apt,”
AND THEN THIS WHOOPER OF TWEET:
So, is this confirmation enough the he’s done with 30 Rock?
Britney Spears is this close to signing a deal worth $15 million to become a judge on X Factor, multiple sources have exclusively confirmed to E! News.
“Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee,” says one insider with intimate knowledge of the pending deal. “That was the big sticking point and now, thankfully, it’s been sorted. All they need to do now is work out the smaller points. The fact the money is now set, means that there is nothing stopping this from becoming a reality.”
And this will be a package deal: coming along for the ride with Britney is fiancé Jason Trawick.
A second source reveals that her soon-to-be husband (who is also petitioning to become her coconservator), will become a producer on the show. “Jason is expected to be there every day Britney is on set. He is her rock and will help guide her through the process. He is the person she trusts the most,” the second source tells us.
The deal will make Spears the highest paid judge on reality television, eclipsing Jennifer Lopez‘s $12 million deal for American Idol. Barring any last-minute snafus, Spears will fill one of two X Factor judging vacancies after Cowell fired Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger at the close of the show’s first season.
A rep for the X Factor would neither confirm nor deny whether Spears was even being considered. A Fox rep had no comment. However a production insider tells E! News that “this is an exciting time for [Britney]. It’ll be a fun project and she is welcoming the chance to mentor up-and-coming artists. She loves the idea of helping emerging talent get the recognition they deserve and is really looking forward to being on the show.”
“She gets on very well with Simon. He has worked hard at persuading her to start this new chapter in her career. She is an icon, and the perfect example of what having the X Factor means.
“She’s really looking forward to the project and being able to connect with her fans.”
Britney is expected to start her new role in the middle of May but there’s no word yet on who will fill the final spot, according to the show source.
