Johnny Knoxville pens tribute to Ryan Dunn

A week after the tragic death of “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn, his friend and cast mate Johnny Knoxville has taken to his blog to say everything he couldn’t say at last week’s memorial.

“I walked to the podium and tried to share memories of my dear friend, but the words were just spinning in my head,” Knoxville recalls of Dunn’s service. “What came out were the mumblings of a man trying his best not to cry, and I wasn't even successful at that.”

Although he cautions that he may not be able to get everything out in his blog post, he forges ahead, remembering the friend and stuntman who died in a fiery crash on a Pennsylvania highway. It was later revealed that Dunn was traveling at a speed of up to 140 miles per hour and had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.196 percent.

James Franco isn't profiting from his invisible art

James Franco’s venture into the invisible art business appears to be taking off, but he's not getting any money from it.

The star with an unreal number of titles has teamed up with artistic duo Praxis to open the Museum of Non-Visible Art (MONA), an institution “composed entirely of ideas.”

On its website, MONA describes itself as “an extravaganza of imagination, a museum that reminds us that we live in two worlds: the physical world of sight and the non-visible world of thought," which "redefines the concept of what is real." The museum goes on to add that "Although the artworks themselves are not visible, the descriptions open our eyes to a parallel world built of images and words. This world is not visible, but it is real, perhaps more real, in many ways, than the world of matter, and it is also for sale.

Beyonce: Glastonbury a dream come true

Just ahead of tomorrow's release of her album "4," Beyonce made global headlines this weekend after nailing her debut headlining gig at the Glastonbury Festival.

The reviews couldn’t be more congratulatory, undoubtedly a nice change of pace for the 29-year-old, who’s weathered lukewarm response to her single “Run the World (Girls.)”

The Guardian commended the pop superstar for kicking the show off with a bang and never letting the excitement slip. Harper’s Bazaar added that she lived up to her reputation, with Rolling Stone calling it a “bold, crowd-pleasing spectacle" and Billboard viewing it as "career-defining."

Frisky business on 'Ice Loves Coco'

First things first: Ice-T's wife Coco is now a singer. Or a rapper. Or…yeah. Regardless, she has a new song on iTunes about her vast collection of shoes and just how much she wants to, er, become better acquainted with them, if you will.

And that's what I learned by watching episode three of E!’s “Ice Loves Coco.”

The Coco song came about after Ice-T decided to let her lay down some tracks in the studio. Apparently they both had been talking about doing a song together for quite some time and never did.

Memorable moments from the BET Awards

Awkward.

That's the best possible way to describe the moment when fan Tiffany Green was chosen to read the name of the winner of the Coca-Cola Viewers Choice Award Sunday night on the BET Awards.

Green read the name Chris Brown from a Sprint Evo tablet, then looked up befuddled at the teleprompter and read with wonder, "I'm sorry, Rihanna 'What's My Name?'" Scratch that, because it was then announced that Drake was the winner.
