Heidi Montag Wants You to Eat Her Panties

Heidi Montag is finally releasing her debut album Superficial and if the lyrics are anything to go by, Heidi is one frisky, sexually-charged woman. In the song "I’ll Do It," Montag sings, “I brought some treats / I know that you gon love em. Come eat my panties off of me / Do whatever you feel comes naturally.” Yikes. The reality television star says she paid to produce the album herself and has been working on it for three years. If anything, it should be interesting. [US Magazine]

Channing Tatum Burned his Pecker

G.I. Joe actor Channing Tatum suffered an onset accident that can only be described as horrifying and every man’s worst nightmare. Tatum was on the set of The Eagle of the Ninth and had to swim through freezing water in a wetsuit. To warm up he’d pour a mixture of boiling water and cold river water down the suit. Problem was his assistant forgot to add the cold water, so Tatum ended up pouring boiling hot water on his member. The actor was rushed to hospital, but is now fully recovered. He did keep photographs of the incident and recently showed them to a reporter from Details magazine. The journalist described Tatum’s Johnson as looking like “a hot dog that's been left too long on the grill. The tip is hot-pink, singed, and shriveled. It appears angry. And it's painful to view. My penis hurts just from looking at it.” Ouch. [Details]

Peter Sarsgaard Becomes a Baddie in Green Lantern

Peter Sarsgaard may soon join the Green Lantern film with Ryan Reynolds, who is cast as the eponymous Lantern. If cast he would play Dr. Hector Hammond, a scientist son of a senator with a chip on his shoulder and a lot to prove. He receives psychic powers when he finds a magical meteor. The two actors were also recently joined by the sexy Blake Lively, who will play the Green Lantern’s main squeeze. [Heat Vision Blog]

Robert Downey Jr. Ditches Cowboys & Aliens for Sherlock 2

After hearing the news that Robert Downey, Jr. had bailed ship on Jon Favreau’s soon-to-be-in-production Cowboys & Aliens, everyone wanted to know what movie he was leaving it for. Turns out Warner Bros. is eager to get back to work on the Sherlock Holmes franchise and get busy on the sequel. The sequel could begin filming as soon as June, which is no surprise considering the success of the recently released Sherlock Holmes. Downey is only one man and can only be in so many places at once. It’s nice to be loved. [Hollywood Insider]

Beyonce is Taking Some Time Off

Beyonce is apparently taking a six-month break from music biz so she can "recharge her batteries" and "just live life." Beyonce will complete her 11-month world tour in Trinidad and Tobago on Febuary 10th and has revealed she won't go back to work again until mid-2010. She told USA Today, "It's definitely time to take a break, to recharge my batteries. I'd like to take about six months and not go into the studio. I need to just live life, to be inspired by things again. I'm going to do random things. I want to go to restaurants, maybe take a class, and see some movies and Broadway shows." I just hope she keeps her beautiful booty in check. [Star Pulse]

Shaquille O'Neal Taking a Stroll Down the Tiger Woods Path

Even though he still has a lot of work to do before entering Tiger's world, Shaquille O'Neal is certainly making a name for himself in the "I cheat on my wife a lot" Olympics that seem to have been going on for the past few months. The big fella's third (and unlikely final mistress) is now suing him for harassment, claiming that the former NBA MVP began an "aggressive" approach to reconciliation once she let him know that staying with his wife might be a decent idea.

Microsoft Sees No Need to Launch Xbox 360 Successor

The Xbox 360 launched in November 2005. The original Xbox launched in November 2001. It is now 2010. About time for a new Xbox, right? Not necessarily, Microsoft says. "I think it's important to say that the Xbox 360 is the console of the long future for us," David Hufford, senior director of Xbox product management, told the Guardian. "There is no need to launch a new console, because we're able to give this console new life either with software upgrades or hardware upgrades like Project Natal." "The Xbox 360 was designed for a long life," Hufford adds, "and I don't even know if we're at the midpoint yet." Designed for long life? Guess 'ol Hufford doesn't own a 360. [Guardian]

Star Trek Online Open Beta Starts Today

Today Cryptic Studios will begin the open beta of Star Trek Online, opening their test servers to invitees and anyone who has pre-ordered the game. The game is set in the old universe (not the rebooted one from last year's movie), and takes place roughly 30 years after the events in Star Trek: Nemesis. There are two playable factions to start — the Federation and the Klingon Empire — and more may become available later on. There will be conflict between the two factions, but supposedly all PvP will be "optional and consensual." Players will be able to choose from a variety of ships, and they'll see cameos from familiar characters. And hey, the price is right. [Star Trek Online]
