Snoop Dogg adopts another new name for funk project

Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg has given himself yet another new moniker – Snoopzilla – in honour of collaborative project the rapper has created with singer Dam-Funk.

From Snoop Doggy Dogg to his most recent Rastafarian-inspired name, Snoop Lion, the Drop it Like It’s Hot hitmaker is rechristening himself with a name influenced by Parliament-Funkadelic legend Bootsy Collins, who dubbed himself Bootzilla.

Under the Snoopzilla name, the rapper and Dam-Funk have created the 7 Days of Funk, and they’ll release an album of the same name.

Snoopzilla shares his excitement for the new venture in a statement that reads: “We’re the babies of the Mothership. I’ve had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He’s keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him.”

The duo’s first single, Faden Away, was released on iTunes on Tuesday (15Oct13).

Tom Waits

Tom Waits, Sinead O’Connor and Lucinda Williams have signed on to record tracks for a new Blind Willie Johnson tribute album – if fans fund the project online.

The Blind Boys of Alabama and Rickie Lee Jones have also agreed to perform a Johnson cover for the album following the launch of a crowdsourcing campaign on Tuesday (15Oct13).

A post on the project’s new site reads, “Our mission is to shine a light and acknowledge this important and influential artist currently representing mankind in outer space.

“NASA recently confirmed that mankind has left the solar system for the first time with its Voyager 1 spacecraft entering interstellar space after a 36 year journey. Onboard the spacecraft is a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk, carrying the music of Bach and Mozart, and Blind Willie Johnson’s recording Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground. Meanwhile back on earth, Blind Willie Johnson’s significant contribution to the world of music is far too often overlooked.”

Record producer Jeffrey Gaskill is hoping to raise cash to complete God Don’t Never Change: The Songs of Blind Willie Johnson – and he’s offering backers the chance to share in the album-making process.

Pregnant Megan Fox Steps Out with Brian Austin Green After Baby News

Published July 28, 2014 by gossipzoo

Hey Megan Fox, nice bag…

One day after confirming her baby news, the 27-year-old actress was spotted at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City with her husband Brian Austin Green and their son Noah.

Nearby photographers and fans looking for a tiny baby bump were out of luck, as Fox stepped out in a loose grey tee and cream cardigan and hid behind a giant green bag.

The couple’s happy news was announced by Fox’s rep late Thursday, some 10 months after the Transformers star gave birth to little Noah.

“I’m so much softer than I used to be, and I feel everything so much deeper than I used to,” Fox told E! News of motherhood in December. “When I watch the news, everyone is somebody’s child or someone’s mother. So, I’m constantly worrying now about everything.”

Fox has spent part of her summer in New York City filming the upcoming reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Published July 28, 2014 by gossipzoo

Kellan Lutz has made everyone’s weekend (week, for some of us) thanks to his latest Instagram post.

On Friday, the 28-year-old hunk unveiled a new shirtless still of himself from his upcoming movie Hercules 3D.

The shirtless display comes just days after Lutz fans were treated to new photos of the sculpted actor on the Bulgaria film set. The images included Lutz, who reportedly put on 20 lbs. of muscle for the role, in full armor and shield.

Hercules 3D, directed by Renny Harlin (The Covenant, The Long Kiss Goodnight), arrives in theaters in early 2014.

Sydney Leathers Has Indeed Filmed a Porno

Anthony Weiner mistress

Sydney Leathers, the latest woman involved in Anthony Weiner’s ring of sexting, has filmed a solo porn video for Vivid Entertainment – and TMZ has all of the lurid Monday-morning details.

Apparently, the 23-year-old – who was spotted “hanging out” with Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch about a week ago – strips down and strikes a bunch of poses in the video before she starts “strumming the old banjo,” as TMZ so kindly puts it. It’s all available on Vivid’s obviously not safe for work website, so, enjoy!

As for why Leathers decided to film the tape, the lost dog summed it up by telling Vivid:

“Anthony Weiner and I had a sexting relationship for several months and that came out in the press. So, here I am!”


Realty Byte: Ryan Serhant Takes A Spin Around Jeff Gordon’s $30M NYC Pad

Published July 27, 2014 by gossipzoo

Living in the fast lane certainly has its perks for Jeff Gordon.

The acclaimed NASCAR driver has racked in $150 million over the course of his racing career, so it seems only fitting that his Big Apple digs should go for $30 million, right?

The famed athlete, who’s ranked 12th overall in the Sprint Cup, just finished his 700th race and isn’t planning on making anymore pit stops in NYC, so he listed his Manhattan property for the hefty sum that’s, of course, located in one of Manhattan’s toniest locales.

And get this… Gordon bought the 3,454 square-foot penthouse palace in 2007 for a mere $9.7M. An extra $20 million is some serious ROI. The 3-bed, 3.5-bath modern concrete jungle escape welcomes VIPs with a chic foyer graced by 6-foot Santos Mahogany floors and over 46 feet of oversized windows to enjoy the priceless views of Central Park. The entryway opens up the living and formal dining rooms with Brazilian cherry wood floors, rich wood doors, and (a rare fancy feature) a black granite sushi bar.

The kitchen is just as elegant with steel-like Italian ceramic tile flooring, black granite counters and state-of-the-art appliances. What’s even more astounding is the fact that the master suite alone is bigger than most NYC apartments at 740-square-feet! The master also has a separate dressing room, 2 walk-in closets, and an en-suite limestone bath with soaking tub. The condo includes a private office and fully-integrated Creston system that controls all lighting, window shades and audio/visual components.

And the lucky new owner will live among some star-studded company – Sting, Denzel Washington, and Bob Costas are all neighbors who you may run into at… take a deep breath… the 14,000 square-foot fitness center, 750 foot sky-lit pool, spa, sauna, steam room, screening room, private restaurant, wine room, library, business center, game room, outdoor terrace, or children’s playroom.

Let Million Dollar Listing New York’s Ryan Serhant take you on the fast track through Jeff Gordon’s digs in the CB! video above.

Don’t Miss It: Lindsay Lohan Hosts ‘Chelsea Lately’

Published July 26, 2014 by gossipzoo

Tonight at 11/10c, Lindsay Lohan guest-hosts Chelsea Lately on E!.

After leaving rehab last Wednesday, Lohan taped a special with Oprah Winfrey, set to premiere on August 18th. She headed to Handler’s studios in Burbank for what some have hailed as a proper comeback.

Buzznet’s Callina Marie was in the audience for Lohan’s gig.

“Her opening monologue was fantastic,” Marie wrote. “She cracked jokes and even poked fun at herself a little saying she was on a 90-day court ordered vacation. She also threw some digs at Chelsea, all in good fun of course, mentioning she saw someone who looked just like Chelsea while leaving Cliffside.”

Lohan signed two of Chuy‘s balls, which we’re giving away to two lucky readers. To enter, head over to Lohan’s site and sign up for her newsletter.
