Chaos shuts down Drake concert

New Yorkers hoping to hear rap sensation Drake perform his hit "Over" at a free concert yesterday found that the event itself was over before it even began.

A crowd of 25,000 people - more than double the number anticipated - turned up at Manhattan's South Street Seaport for the show, which was to feature Drake, Hanson, and DJ Ninjasonik. "The crowd was much larger than we anticipated," Paper magazine, who co-sponsored the event with Ray-Ban, explained on Twitter.

Pattinson will go nude in 'Bel Ami'

In his upcoming movie “Bel Ami,” Robert Pattinson gives “New Moon” a whole new meaning - the actor bares his bottom in the nudity-packed drama.

“I think there's a lot of my crack in it," Pattinson, 24, told MTV News of the film, which is due out next year.

While “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” heartthrob told Jay Leno last night that his parents have no problem with him getting naked on screen (“They’ve seen it all before,” he joked), he admitted that he dreaded dropping his robe for his big reveal.

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are 'co-parenting'

Last month, Bristol Palin told Harper's Bazaar that Levi Johnston, her ex and the father of her son Tripp, was a "stranger" to her, yet reports have surfaced that their relationship is actually on the mend. In a statement to ABC's "Good Morning America," Palin defines the relationship as "co-parenting."

“I am doing my best to raise a happy, active and healthy boy,” Palin, 19, told “Good Morning America.”

“I believe that wherever possible, if the parents can cooperate and co-parent in a positive way, the child will benefit. Levi and I are turning a new page here as co-parents to this wonderful boy and putting aside the past because doing so is in Tripp’s best interest,” she added.

An article in Us Weekly claimed that Palin is back together with Johnston, quoting an unnamed source close to Palin who said the two are "very close" and "spend more time together than people think."

The Situation makes foray into music

In case you haven’t had enough “Jersey Shore” in your life, you can indulge in Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s auto-tune drenched, fist-pumping dance single, "The Situation," now available for purchase on all digital retail outlets.

Sorrentino teamed up with Fatman Scoop, DJ Class and the Disco Fries to create this “Jersey Shore” musical spawn, and TMZ posted a 50-second clip of this migraine of a song.

After the introduction lyrics - “We got a situation here" - about half of the brief clip is comprised of “Whoa, Whoa, Situation,” repeated over a background of what sounds like air-raid blasts and an anxiety-inducing techno beat mix.
