Shock Value: Volume 2

Super-producer, Timbaland is coming out with a new album, featuring a TON of A-list musicians!

Shock Value: Volume 2 is set to come out February 14th, and will once again feature Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake sings on the album's lead single, "Meltdown" with Gwen Stefani, which will be released on radio on January 5th.

MTV got a preview of some of the tracks, and reported:

– The first single from the album, featuring guest vocals from Gwen Stefani and old-time collaborator Justin Timberlake is a typical Timbaland club-stomper, with thumping chorus in which Justin and Gwen invite one another to ‘melt down; all the way’.

"That’s The Way"
– Featuring Usher and Keri Hilson on vocals, this throwback track samples the classic KC and the Sunshine band track, "That’s The Way I Like It" but with a sultry new twist reminiscent of Usher’s own "Love In This Club" single.

– The rockiest of the tracks, featuring the group of the moment, the Jonas Brothers. Beginning as seemingly regular teenage, High School Musical-esque song, it soon breaks out into a crazy whirl-of-a-track that is about an unnecessary break-up.

"Across The Sky"
- a leftover track from Madonna's Hard Candy album, which Timbaland produced many tracks for. However, this version has been completely reworked from the original leaked clip that has appeared online. Now a much darker track similar to the Hard Candy track, "Voices." With guest vocals from Justin Timberlake (again) and a brief appearance from the lady herself, Madonna, this song is longest of the tracks, clocking in at over 7 minutes!

– This one is definitely our favourite. Featuring a heavy sample of the classic dance track "Sandstorm" by Darude, this is unlike anything Timbaland has done before. With incredible guest vocals from Rihanna, this song is one to watch out for. It has to be a single!

Other guests on the album include T-Pain, Akon, Jay-Z, Linkin Park, Dr. Dre, Missy Elliot, Jordin Sparks, T.I., Flo-Rida, and Coolio.

Timbaland and the Jonas Brothers? Can't wait to hear it!

Gisele Bundchen engaged!

What a lovely Christmas present!

On Christmas Eve, the Patriots' quarterback, Tom Brady popped the question to Brazilian supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, and she said yes!

The proposal took place on a private jet that took off from the New York area and landed in Boston, which Brady had decorated with four dozen white roses and champagne.

Bundchen's parents were also on board.

So romantic!

Leighton Meester on the cover of Teen Vogue

Team Blair!

I might have to end my Teen Vogue boycott after this...

Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester is the magazine's February 2009 cover girl.

In the issue, the 22-year-old talks about her childhood, Ed Westwick and her new album.

On her parents being in prison:
I wouldn't have volunteered that information, but I've never kept it a secret either. It's just not my past; it's not my story to tell...I wasn't born in jail; I was born in a hospital. I lived with my mother for a few months in a halfway house, and then I went to stay with my grandmother for a few more before my mom got out. But I had a normal life.

On Ed:
He’s my favorite actor to work with. We have really good chemistry.

On her debut album, which she hopes to release this spring:
The music is very fun. It’s edgy, like electropop rather than bubblegum and you can dance to it.

It's no doubt that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's son, Kingston would be one of the stylish celebuspawns out there.

He's up on my list with Suri Cruise .

The mini motorcycle jacket, the patched jeans, and UGG-like boots? Too cute!

Kanye to intern at LV

Seems like designing a line of shoes for Louis Vuitton just isn't enough for Kanye West.

The 31-year-old rapper/producer is planning on leaving L.A. for London next year, to intern at the fashion house's HQ in Bond Street.

He also plans to approach other leading fashion houses in Europe.

"I'm going to go and take an internship and just do something that's like completely normal, and just rap at the weekends or something," said the Grammy award winner.

Friends say that Kanye has even joked that he will make and serve the tea to get his foot in the door, if need be.

It'll be interesting to see what he'll be doing there!

More Gossip Girl hook-ups!

The cast of Gossip Girl just can't seem to take their hands off each

First there was Blake Lively and Penn Badgley, then Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr!

Now, a New York paper is reporting that Chace Crawford, 23, and Taylor Momsen, 15, hooked up at the Gossip Girl holiday party today!

The paper's source said the two sneaked away during the part to "steal kisses in the corner."

Seems like the on-screen romances really have an effect on these stars!

But with Penn, Ed, and Chace taken, who will Leighton Meester be left with?

Hey Chris, Got Milk?

More ads being revealed!

Chris Brown's print ad for Got Milk? has been released!

The 19-year-old singer is the latest celeb to join the 'Body by Milk' campaign, which was created to encourage teenagers to drink three glasses of lowfat or fat free milk everyday, eat right, and be active to stay lean and healthy.

If you recall, Taylor Swift is also part of this campaign.

The ad reads: “Chris Brown feat. Milk. Another great collaboration? Milk. Some studies suggest that teens who drink milk tend to be leaner and the protein helps build muscle. So eat right, exercise and drink lowfat or fat free milk. Talk about a smooth move.”

It will officially debut in Rolling Stone magazine on December 12, 2008.

The moustache suits him well!

The ads will start in January 2009.

Fashion DO!

Selena Gomez at the British Academy Children’s Film and Television awards last night. Stunning!

Some real Gosssip Girl gossip!

Seems like when Chuck Bass and Vanessa Abrams almost hooked up on Gossip Girl, some real chemistry developed between the two!

Ed Westwick (Chuck) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa) were spotted at the Dallas airport yesterday with fellow GG castmate, Chace Crawford.

After spending Thanksgiving at Chace's house, the three were waiting at the airport for their flights home.

After Chace departed on an earlier flight, Ed and Jessica were spotted flirting, and even smooching!

"Definitely on the lips," a source told W magazine. "Not a French kiss, but a smooch definitely. They were being very flirty when people were not paying attention."

Looks like real-life isn't that different from life on-screen!

Whoever thinks that Victoria Beckham takes herself too seriously, needs to see this video.

As previously reported, Victoria has come out with a high-end dress collection called, the Victoria Beckham Collection.

The promo video is shot in a lovely English-styled house, with Victoria and some teenage girls running around playing hide-and-seek. They choose some traditional hiding spots, like behind curtains and under chairs, but they also pull lampshades, tights, and sweaters over their heads.

It's a super cute video, so check it out!
