More Connor Cruise Hotness: The Young Hunk Spends Father’s Day at Track with Dad Tom

connor-cruise-tom-cruise-racetrack In our continual quest to bring you the hotness that is Connor Cruise (yes, he's a tween, but we don't care), here's a hunky shot of Tom Cruise's 14-year-old cutie spending Fathers Day at a NASCAR race in Sonoma, Calif. with his movie star dad.

Check out more shots of Connor at Huffington Post.

UPDATE: Chris Brown Reaches Plea Bargain in Rihanna Attack, Before Rihanna Takes Stand

rihanna-and-chris-brown-ap If Rihanna takes the stand at ex-boyfriend Chris Brown's preliminary hearing Monday, it will be the singer's first time publicly talking about what happened the night her boyfriend allegedly attacked her. Various reports claim she instigated their quarrel by hitting him after a woman he was reportedly sleeping with text messaged him the night before the Grammys. Whether or not she instigated the fight has little bearing on Brown's physical retaliation--which has yet to be detailed from Rihanna's perspective. The 20-year-old singer has pleaded not guilty in connection with assault on his ex. UPDATE: Chris Brown accepts a plea bargain, ordering him to 180 days probation in Virginia; 5 years probation for felony assault; and completion of a domestic violence counseling program, according to CNN.

blackeyepeas-fergie-assault-perez-apPerez HIlton Birthday Party Celeb blogger Perez Hilton says he was assaulted by Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am at an after party following the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto on Sunday. "I'm in shock. I need the police ASAP. Please come to the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel now. Please," Lavandeira posted on his Twitter page, at around 3 a.m. "I was assaulted by Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas and his security guards. I am bleeding. Please, I need to file a police report. No joke." Will.I.Am then created his own Twitter account to respond to the allegations: "I just made a Twitter account because it isn't cool for someone to blame you and blast you with lies," he posted an hour later, before creating the video below. The alleged altercation was centered around Fergie, who, according to the blogger, came up to him twice asking why he was so negative towards the band's hit single, "Boom Boom Pow." According to Will.I.Am, Perez was being mean to Fergie, whom he considers a sister, and felt he needed to protect. UPDATE: Perez has since created this video detailing the alleged attack.

Media Overhype: Obama Swats and Kills Fly During CNBC Interview

President Obama swatted and killed a fly during an interview with CNBC correspondent John Harwood on Tuesday and quickly became an internet sensation because of his skillful hand-eye coordination and quick reflexes. The media jumped all over Obama's fly smackdown and compared him to Karate Kid's Mr. Miyagi and even called him "Lord of the Flies." PETA however, was not a fan of Obama's smackdown and according to TMZ they had this to say about the President, "He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

Who Looked HOT at the CFDA Awards and Who Should’ve Stayed Home

1A0BA87F1A0BF8441A0BF84A Photos: Sara Jaye Weiss The Annual CFDA Awards honoring designers held at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York on Monday featured some amaze outfits and a few that should've stayed home. Zoe Saldana looked sheerly divine in a slate blue Calvin Klein dress. Molly Sims was iconically cute in a 50s inspired Marilyn Monroe print dress and even though Heidi Klum's dress reminded us of Reynolds Wrap, she still looked amaze! As for the celebs that should've stayed home and their outfits that should've stayed on the rack: Blake Lively, you know Blindie loves you, but an orange tan in a neon pink dress is not hot unless you're Tara Reid; and Lake Bell, the shoulders on that dress look like football gear. 1A0BF7F31A0BF7F2 Photos: Sara Jaye Weiss

We Hate Knockoffs: Chris Brown Sits Courtside at NBA Finals with Rihanna Lookalike Teyana Taylor

rihanna-lookalike-lakers-game-chrisbrown Who was tacky enough to sit courtside with a Rihanna knockoff at the NBA Finals in Florida? Yes, none other than Ri-Ri's ex Chris Brown. Three days after the former R&B lovebirds were spotted watching the Lakers game separately last week, Brown attended the NBA finals with a carbon copy of his famous ex, who sat just seats away. Despite sporting a Rihanna-esque 'do, the lookalike has been identified as singer Teyana Taylor. We can't help but to wonder if the up-and-coming performer was styled to look like Ri-Ri just for this high-profile game. rihanna-white-glassesrihanna-lookalike-wannabe-ap-photo

prince-purple-rain The July issue of Spin magazine pays tribute to Prince's "Purple Rain" album and film which was released 25 years ago with a free downloadable cover album. The music magazine features a 10-page oral history compiled and written by Brian Raftery and a tribute album of nine bands performing covers of the classic tracks. While Prince and the Time's Morris Day were not on-hand for interviews, Wendy and Lisa, members of the Revolution, Bob Cavallo, the film's producer and Prine's manager at the time, director Albert Magnoli and the original screenplay writer William Blinn were among the many who participated. "We did a full court press to get Prince himself involved," said Spin editor Doug Brod. "He's a pretty tough guy to get a hold of, and he doesn't dwell much on nostalgia." The free downloadable album, accessible on spin.com on June 23, features former Prince protegee Apollonia on the track "When Doves Cry" with Greg Dulli and his band, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings singing "Take Me With U," and Of Montreal covering "Computer Blue."
