Jay-Z at work on new solo album

Now that Jay-Z and Kanye West’s collaboration “Watch the Throne” is gearing up for a late summer release, Hov is trying to keep the creativity flowing as he works on another album.

The rapper, who last released “The Blueprint 3” in 2009, tells MTV that he’s already two tracks in on the new project, which he says are the best first two songs he’s ever done for a record.

Lest he lose his inspiration, Jay-Z says he’s got four other ideas rolling around as well.

"I know exactly the tone and the whole feel of the album," he says, although he doesn't hint as to what that tone might be. "I think when you experience creativity, you should get it out as much as possible."

“Watch the Throne” is expected to arrive August 2.

Casey Anthony book on the way

We knew the book deals were coming eventually.

According to the New York Times, St. Martin’s Press has lined up a book about Casey Anthony, who last week was found not guilty of murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter.

Written by forensic psychiatrist Keith Ablow, “Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony” will offer a “cogent, comprehensible way of understanding exactly how Casey Anthony’s psyche may have developed and how her psychological development and the dynamics within her family ended the life of Caylee Anthony,” a spokesperson for the publisher says in a statement.

“Whether readers liked or hated the jury’s verdict, Dr. Ablow will answer the question, Why is Caylee Anthony dead?” the statement continues.

The book is expected to arrive soon, as the publisher is said to be rushing the text to print this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Vinny makes a 'Shore' return

Vinny makes a 'Shore' return

Maybe Vinny Guadagnino just needed a little “Jersey Shore” vacation.

A week after reports that reality star Vin was through with “Shore” – he was seen packing up his stuff and heading for home – it appears he's returned to Seaside Heights.

He was spotted by TMZ carrying a bag presumably of laundry back to the reality set and hanging out with castmates over the weekend. Last week, MTV wouldn’t comment on rumors that Vinny had said adios for good, giving a statement that the network doesn't comment on shows while they're in production, so we’ll likely have to (surprise, surprise) watch the fifth season to see what actually happened.

In the meantime, Vinny will be present for season four – better known as “Jersey Shore does Italy” - which premieres on August 4.

'3rd Rock' actress gets in flight feud with Nadya Suleman

Mother of 14 Nadya Suleman seems to have ruffled a few feathers when she flew from New York to Los Angeles on Friday.

Suleman, who made a trip to the "Today" show on Friday, was flying back home from the Big Apple with her kids in business class when passengers found themselves stuck with a two-hour delay waiting for take off.

"3rd Rock from the Sun" actress Kristen Johnston happened to be in first class on the same flight, and according to TMZ, left her seat and exchanged words with Suleman over how her kids were behaving.

Monica marries again in 'lavish' ceremony

Once more, but this time with some extravagance: Monica and her husband, 25-year-old L.A. Lakers player Shannon Brown, had another wedding in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The “Angel of Mine” singer, 30, previously tied the knot with Brown in a very intimate ceremony (we're talking two-people-in-attendance intimate) at their L.A. home in November of last year.

This time around, the couple opted for a renovated 19th century cathedral in downtown L.A. to host the wedding that was attended by hundreds of family and friends, including Lala Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher, reports People.
