Cheerio, old beans!
Lady Gaga's rocked a hair dress, a meat dress--and now it appears stage five of her 15-stage Madonna life cycle is complete. You know, like when a caterpillar larva eventually becomes a butterfly? Like that.
Lady Gaga was spotted leaving a London pub dressed in what can only be described as the sartorial love child of good old Madge and an ostrich. And maybe a flamingo. That said, I'm criminally jeal of several elements of this outfit, specifically the Lennon shades, leather jacket (it's leather weather!), Chanel purse and red nails. And it's been a while since I've wanted to accessory-jack Lady Gaga's fashion stylings. From the looks of it, even the pink-newsprint clad chick behind Lady Gaga is queuing up for a chance to try on that epic bag.
Here's to hoping Lady Gaga goes whole-hog with her inner Madgeness (the Material Girl is, after all, the meaning in Gaga's life AND the inspiration) and comes back with an extra-spesh souvenir--an affected British accent.
Also, somewhere in Florida, a flamingo is VERY chilly.

Joe Jonas graduates! Joe Jonas graduates! Doesn't quite have the same ring to it that "Donna Martin Graduates" does, right? Be that as it may, the elder Jonai is guest starring on the Nov. 8 episode of the CW's "90210."
Joe Jonas will have to dig deep for his role on the show, as he will be playing...himself. In the episode, titled "Mother Dearest," Joe winds up attending Adriana's magazine release party as her date. This doesn't go over too well with Navid, seeing as how he dates Adriana...
See? She's all like, 'You'll always be my favorite Jonas brother, Navid." But he's not buying it. By the way, this is a show about people in high school (magazine release party what?).
Joe Jonas is becoming something of an old hand when it comes to appearing on television shows. Earlier this year he appeared on the sitcom "Hot In Cleveland," where he played Valerie Bertinelli's son.
Check out another photo of Joe Jonas' upcoming appearance on "90210," below. The episode airs Nov. 8.

Meet The Downtown Fiction. Of course, it's entirely possible that you already have met these Virginia dudes, seeing as how they're vets of both Warped Tour and Bamboozle. But for the uninitiated, here are the vital statistics.
The Downtown Fiction got together back in 2008. Led by guitarist/singer Cameron Leahy, the group has a self-titled EP and a mini-album, Best I Never Had, to their credit. As their appearances on Warped and Bamboozle suggest, these dudes truck in the indie-emo-pop genre that reels you in the second you hear it. But with assured playing and Leahy's acrobatic, high-pitched vocals, the band also call to mind the classic power-pop of The Jam and Squeeze.
Watch The Downtown Fiction's "I Just Wanna Run" video, taken from their Best I Never Had release, below.
It's probably a correct assumption that you don't read More magazine (no offense to the kind folks at More... it's just that its target audience is probably your mom. But, if you're a "Glee" fan, you probably read anything "Glee"-related you can get your hands on. Which is why you should check out More's Jane Lynch cover story.
Inside the pages of the November issue of More, which hits newsstands Oct. 28, Jane Lynch trades in Sue Sylvester's track suit for an awesome caftan. She also takes what looks like the world's sweetest and sexiest spa vacation, getting her nails done by greased-up dudes in hot pink banana hammocks. (With the "Glee" kids getting supersexy in their underwear in GQ mag, something must be in the water over at McKinley High!)
Jane Lynch also discusses her decision to become sober in 1991, telling More that she told a friend, "I'm pouring out this glass of wine and never drinking again," and that she has been sober ever since.

The 2010 MTV EMA-- they're like the VMAs, but with a passport and a hotter accent--are going to be bigger, better and more talented-er than ever! Just announced today, Miley Cyrus will make her EMA debut performance! Hayley Williams and B.o.B. are also on the performance lineup, which includes Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Kid Rock, Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, Plan B and Shakira.
And speaking of passports, Snooki had better make sure hers is up to date, because she'll be presenting an EMA that night. "True Blood"'s Evan Rachel Wood will also present an EMA. Also appearing are Pauly D, Emily Osment, The Dudesons and Johnny Knoxville. Eva Longoria will host the MTV EMA 2010 in Madrid's Caja Magica.
You can vote for the 2010 MTV EMA and don't forget to watch the show on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 9/8c on MTV2.
What can't Snooki do? The "Jersey Shore" shorty is an amazing fist-pumper, a first-class tanner, and a stellar shot-taker. Recently Snooki took a clue from Willow Smith, who she's "obsessed with," and added making a video of her whipping her hair to her repertoire. And by "whipping her hair" I mean "gently shaking her pouf to "Whip My Hair" on the floor of her bedroom while making kissy faces.
Last time on SnookTV, Snookie hit us with an intimate lip-synching session to Britney Spears' "Sometimes." This time, Snooki's "Whip My Hair" video (via Celebuzz) features two huge cameos--Snooki's cute little dog Gia (whipping her fur), and more important, Snooki's famous ridiculously bedazzled sunglasses that no one understands how she sees out of. We love to see Snooki whip her hair, but just remember, lady! Whipping your hair can be dangerous!

I was just thinking to myself, "Why doesn't anyone make those old-school slow dance jams that our parents used to drink milkshakes to or sock hop to or whatever they used to do back in the day?" Enter Gnarls Barkley rapper and MC Cee-Lo and his new-school old-school track "Old Fashioned."
Cee-Lo got us all smirking and snapping our fingers when we first heard the doo-wop-ish, scorned ex-lover anthem "F*** You." But the much-safer-for-work "Old Fashioned," the newly released track off of his highly anticipated album The Lady Killer, due out Nov. 9, showcases a sweeter side of Cee-Lo. "My love old fashioned," he croons, "But it still works/Just the way it is." Awww. I'll go to the dance with you, Cee!
Part soul, part Motown and all heart, "Old Fashioned" is the perfect soundtrack for taking your lady to Lookout Point, giving her your varsity pin and doing other slightly modest black-and-white stuff we saw in the movie Pleasantville. But if you start going steady but things go awry, you might want to stick with that other song. (Hint: it starts with "F" and ends with "You.")

Feast your eyes on a new photo gallery of Minneapolis native Auburn. This protege of J.R. Rotem (producer of tracks by everyone from Britney Spears to Rick Ross) mixes together hip-hop and, interestingly enough, meditative acoustic pop.
With tracks like "La La La" and "Bad Day," Auburn's quickly developing a rep as a standout solo artist, capable of making infectious pop tracks that have real emotional resonance. And listening to Auburn spit fire on songs like "Move," we can even detect a little Nicki Minaj in the making.
Auburn's MTV photo gallery is very much representative of her individual style. She's got swag in spades, for sure. But there's also something very ethereal and mystical about her.

One thing we'll always be able to say about Chris Brown is that he's a fantastic dancer who sings really catchy songs. In his new video for the high-energy "Yeah 3X" off of his upcoming album F.A.M.E., due out in 2011, Chris Brown shows off his master moves and gets the whole neighborhood on their feet.
Lately, Chris Brown's been making the rounds, taking guest spots on other artists' tracks, like his most recent collaboration with T.I. on "Get Back Up." For his solo effort though, Chris Brown is leaning more toward his pop roots and away from the urban beats we're used to. "Yeah 3X" is a 100 percent dance party track. And what kind of video goes best with a dance party track? A dance party video.
Chris Brown, known for being an avid admirer of Michael Jackson, pays homage to the pop icon with a video set reminiscent of both "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Billie Jean." Dressed half dapper, half ready to get down, Chris gets the party started when he rolls through the neighborhood on top of a truck decked out with a monster sound system. All the kids get up on their feet, and soon they're chasing Chris through town. Throw in a some pretty girls, a curbside dance-off, and a broken fire hydrant and you've got yourself a raging block party, with Chris Brown as emcee.
