Lily Allen’s Nipples Are at it Again

Saucy Brit Lily Allen gave the paparazzi an eyeful on the set of her new music video recently by letting her side cleavage bust out of control while taking a smoke break in London. Even though this isn’t the first time we've caught her topless, it just doesn’t seem to ever get old. NSFW. [Buzz Patrol]

Brandy Settles Wrongful Death Suit

Brandy is breaking out her checkbook to put the worst day of her life behind her. The singer has reached a settlement in the wrongful-death lawsuit brought on behalf of the children of the woman killed in a December 2006 multicar collision involving the famed R&B star. According to TMZ, the kids, Mrwan and Kareem Mohammed, will each receive $300,000. The boys, who were then 15 and 11, were in the family's Toyota Corolla when it was struck by Brandy's Land Rover, killing their mother Awatef Aboudihaj. [TMZ]

Spencer Pratt Wants to Kill Hip-Hop

Even though The Hills star has already referred to himself as "the white Jay-Z" and released a rap single on iTunes, Spencer Pratt says he's not done with hip-hop just yet. Heidi’s hubby recently told that he's serious about a career in hip-hop and has begun work on his debut album. "I have two songs that are album contenders," says Pratt, who is currently in the studio with producer Steve Morales. "It's gonna be catchy ringtone music, just stuff that is entertaining and that people want to be hearing.” Please shoot us now. [Billboard]

X’s Exene Cervenka Reveals She Has Multiple Sclerosis

Exene Cervenka, co-lead vocalist and original member of the influential Los Angeles punk band X, revealed in a statement today that she is suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. “After some months of not feeling 100% healthy, I recently had some medical tests run and the prognosis is that I am suffering from Multiple Sclerosis,” Cervenka said. “Apparently, it has been affecting me for quite some time.” In a sad coincidence, X announced just last month that they were embarking on the X on TRL tour with the purpose of raising money for the Sweet Relief fund, a charity to aid uninsured musicians. “While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current X U.S. tour, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records,” Cervenka added. Tough chick. [Rolling Stone]

First Images from the Avatar Video Game

James Cameron made a presentation at E3 yesterday about the video game for Avatar and showed the world several images from the game. The screen shots are pretty impressive, though we’re supposedly not to assume that this is necessarily what the movie will look like. Not that we’d be disappointed if it was, this is a very detailed universe, and if Cameron had told us that the stills were from his film we’d probably believe him. So, when you gonna hit us with a trailer, James? Movie comes out in December -- time to start promoting. [Media]

Mission One Motorcycle is Electric and Pretty

Mission Motors has put together an electric motorcycle with a battery that’s good for 150 miles. The bike will be able to attain speeds of up to 150 mph and features a 3-phase AC induction motor with a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery, which charges in two hours. On top of all that it looks pretty sweet. It’s going to make its debut at the TTxGP green motorcycle grand prix, and Mission Motors hopes their bike will be comparable to the Ducati 1198. The motorcycle is called Mission One, and it is a thing to behold. [Wired]

PSP Go Hits the Floor of E3

Sony’s new hand-held alternative to the PSP-3000 is here: the PSP Go. It’s much smaller and narrower than its older brother, and its LCD screen is a half inch smaller. It’s supposed to sell for $250, so you might want to sell your Playstation before ordering one of these. The control pad slides down from under the screen, which is a pretty neat little feature. But the whole contraption begs the question: did we really need the PSP to be smaller? Is that the main improvement we were looking for? I mean, how many people play hand-helds anymore? It’s called an iPhone, and you can call people on it, too. [Kotaku]
