Original 'Joe Millionaire' Is Sorry for Being a "Douche"

Remember Evan Marriott, a.k.a. Joe Millionaire? The original star of the 2003 Fox reality hit, Marriott was a very handsome construction worker masquerading as an eligible millionaire; the audience knew his secret, but the women in the Bachelor-style competition did not. After the season ended, Marriott got a little drunk with his newfound fame, telling People that he didn't like any of the girls on the show (including the one he chose) -- and that all he wanted was a "blonde with big boobs, a little waist and a big, thick bubble butt."

Adam Lambert Questions "Catty" Members of the Gay Community

Adam Lambert covers the latest issue of Instinct, a magazine that focuses on the LGBT community - and opens up to the publication on a topic that may cause some controversy for the former American Idol star.

Adam Lambert Instinct Cover

"As a community, we’re a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves," Lambert says. "It’s very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan.

"I don’t think I’m any of those things. There’s something weird there. We’re very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man – it gets catty sometimes.”

The artist will soon be coming out with a new album, one he has described as especially personal, and he elaborated here regarding what fans can expect:

“This is the kind of music I listen to. I know the style of vocal I have is kind of big. It has a certain edge to it. I’ve always loved rock, but I also love stuff that is more groove-based, more funky, more soulful, more dance music.”

Is T-Mobile Getting The Samsung Galaxy Note?

galaxynoteEven though I think it's way too big for the average human, Samsung's Galaxy Note is doing quite well since its debut in January at CES. In fact, Samsung has sold 5 million units of the Galaxy Note thus far, which comes out to about 1 million Notes sold per month. But could it be selling better? Possibly. The phablet is only available at AT&T with a rather steep $299 price tag, but that may be changing soon according to TmoNews.

Justin Bieber Posts Message To His Paternity Accuser

Bieber sends a Borat-themed tweet to the California woman who accused him of fathering her child.
By Jocelyn Vena

<P><a href="">Justin Bieber</a> went on a bit of a <a href="" target="_blank">Twitter spree</a> over the weekend, telling his millions of followers that it was time for a "RANDOMTWITTERHOUR." </P><P> </P><P>While many of his tweets relayed innocuous thoughts on topics like Chuck Norris' pajamas, his feelings about the content of fruit salad and how his track "Boyfriend" is really about the migration of birds, there was one tweet in particular that stands out. </P><P> </P><P><embed src="" width="460" height="260" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" base="."></embed> </P><P> </P><P>At the end of his "Random Twitter Hour," Bieber had this message for Mariah Yeater, the California woman who accused Bieber in late 2011 of being her baby's father. "And now #RANDOMTWITTERHOUR has come to an end....last one....," he wrote. "Dear mariah yeeter [sic]...we have never from the heart i just wanted to say..." </P><P> </P><P>He then tweeted to an audio link from the 2006 film <a href="">"Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,"</a> in which Borat says, "You will never get this, you will never get it, la la la la la la.

High five!" </P><P> </P><P>Bieber wasn't lying about his tweets being random as there hasn't been any news on the Yeater/paternity front since late November when Yeater promised to <a href="/news/articles/1674882/justin-bieber-baby-dna-test.jhtml">submit her son for a paternity test</a>, despite the paternity suit having been dropped. The tweet does stay on message with Bieber's denial that he had anything to do with Yeater or her baby. </P><P> </P><P>The pop singer maintained his position on the paternity accusation during the entire process, even taking his own <a href="/news/articles/1674791/justin-bieber-paternity-test.jhtml">DNA test</a> to prove that he wasn't the baby's father. "As far as the whole baby situation, it's unfortunate that it had to happen like that," he said in an interview at the height of the allegations.

Report cites fracking-related activities as potential suspect in minor quakes

The rate of minor earthquakes from Colorado to Ohio has quickened in the past decade. But the report doesn't make a direct link between fracking and quakes, notes an Interior official.

Federal research scientists are linking the deep underground injection of waste water from oil and gas exploration to a major increase in minor earthquakes from Colorado to Ohio.

Skip to next paragraph

A modest increase in such quakes was noticed beginning in 2001 in coal-bed methane fields near the Colorado-New Mexico border. That number accelerated rapidly from 2009 through 2011 and was especially pronounced in the oil and gas fields of northern Arkansas and central and southern Oklahoma, the scientists found.

Across that region, 50 earthquakes were larger than magnitude 3 in 2009. The number rose to 87 quakes in 2010 and reached 134 earthquakes in 2011 ? more than six times the annual average levels recorded from 1970 to 2000.

The large jump is "a remarkable increase" in the rate of minor earthquakes that is "almost certainly manmade," according to the abstract of a new study by US Geological Survey scientists, which is expected to be delivered at a scientific conference next week in San Diego. The full study was unavailable.

In Oklahoma, for instance, the rate of earthquakes larger than magnitude 3 (considered a minor quake) abruptly increased around 2009 ? rising from 1.2 per year over the past half century to more than 25 per year, the study found.

"A naturally-occurring rate change of this magnitude is unprecedented outside of volcanic settings or in the absence of a main shock, of which there were neither in this region," the study abstract notes.

Even though the higher frequency indicates that quakes are probably being induced by human activity, "it remains to be determined how they are related to either changes in extraction methodologies or the rate of oil and gas production," the abstract says.

In an interview with the online news service Energy Wire, lead study author William Ellsworth, a USGS scientist, called the increase that his team documented "very peculiar."

The soaring number of quakes overlaps with a huge jump in the amount of drilling for natural gas occurring in shale beds ? an approach called "fracking," which produces millions of gallons of waste water. While some fracking waste water is treated aboveground, much of it is injected into deep waste-water wells.

Is that activity inducing man-made earthquakes by lubricating the faces of underground earthquake faults, so that they slip and slide more easily and frequently?

Not according to a senior Department of Interior official, who was quick to note that no link between quakes and fracking has been established ? even if the waste water from the process, when injected, might be behind the quake mystery.

The USGS findings "do not suggest that hydraulic fracturing, commonly known as ?fracking,? causes the increased rate of earthquakes," David Hayes, deputy secretary of Interior, wrote on his blog Wednesday.

While it appears likely that the increased rate of earthquakes is man-made, it's unclear if that is related to changes in production methods or the rate of oil and gas production, he wrote.

"USGS?s scientists have found, however, that at some locations the increase in seismicity coincides with the injection of wastewater in deep disposal wells," he continued. Even so, "[w]e also find that there is no evidence to suggest that hydraulic fracturing itself is the cause of the increased rate of earthquakes."

Azealia Banks Blasts T.I. On Twitter After Radio Show Comments

Young MC calls Tip a 'snitch' after he talked to Chicago morning show about her beef with Iggy Azalea.
By Rob Markman, with reporting by Nadeska Alexis

T.I. has been involved in his fair share of rap beef. From Lil' Flip to Ludacris to Shawty Lo, Tip has held his own against some pretty serious dudes, but when it comes to the attacks from rookie female MC Azealia Banks, the Trouble Man wants no part of it.

Banks took exception when T.I.'s new artist Iggy Azalea landed the 2012XXL Freshman cover earlier this year. The Harlem rapper had no problem lashing out at Iggy via Twitter, and when Tip defended his new protégé on DJ Drama's radio in March, Banks fired shots at the King too.

"[Banks] wasn't the only one who felt funny about it. It was a trending topic people felt so funny about it," Iggy told MTV News earlier this month about her inclusion on the Freshman list.

Iggy wasn't chosen to be on XXL's coveted cover by the staff outright, instead she won a people's choice vote held on the magazine's website. The Australian-born rapper beat out 49 other rookie MCs to earn her spot along other notables like French Montana, MGK and Future. "Out of all those people, I had the most fans, it's not my fault. You should've voted for who you wanted because everybody else did and not to be rude, it was me."

T.I., however, hasn't been so diplomatic in his response. "The fact that she's speaking up on me and mine, I didn't even see it," he said about Banks when he appeared on the "Tony Sculfield and the Morning Riot" radio show in Chicago on Monday morning (April 23). "That's a bitch sh--, I'ma man. You ain't got no business addressing me. Get your man to address me, if you got a man, get him to address me and he and I can speak on it."

It doesn't seem like Banks, whose video for her single "212" is fast approaching 12 million views on YouTube, has taken heed. "@tip T.i .... Please shut the f--- up about this. Like seriously quit it," she tweeted hours after the Grand Hustle CEO's interview aired.

Banks continued with a full-on Twitter rant. "@tip funny how you have plenty of time to address me but have nothing to say to the dudes who been calling u at as a snitch forever," she wrote. "@tip it's dead... The streets already know what kind of dude you are. Stop making yourself look softer by dragging this out."

She then proceeded to delete all of T.I.'s songs from her iTunes. "LMFAOO every time I delete a t.i. song from my iPad I imagine him dying in some bloody horror film like being eaten by a zombie," she wrote.

Lane Garrison Arrested For Domestic Violence

Police arrested former Prison Break star Lane Garrison was arrested without incident after police responded to a domestic violence complaint against him over the weekend. He's currently being held on $50,000 bail.

The alleged victim was Garrison's ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly.

Lane Garrison and Ashley Mattingly

Garrison says he did NOT hurt his ex, however. According to his attorney, Harland Braun, Garrison went to her Beverly Hills apartment building to dog sit for his acting coach, who happens to live in the same building on the third floor.

As he went to leave, he ran into Ashley in the lobby.

Braun says Garrison told him the two began arguing about the failed relationship, and Ashley started screaming and threw Lane's cell phone against the wall.

Braun claims that Lane then put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair, and then left. Lane says he did not harm Ashley Mattingly at any point.

Garrison, who served prison time for killing a high school student in a car accident a few years back, is days away from ending his parole for manslaughter.

Braun says Ashley knew this and it could be her motivation for getting Lane arrested, since he could biw go back to prison in the manslaughter case.

Lane says he wanted to stay in jail Sunday night so he can speak with detectives as soon as they come in Monday a.m. and clear his name. Stay tuned.

GSM Galaxy Nexus gets a minor update to build IMM76I, still on Android 4.0.4

Nexus update

Some owners of the GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus are finding out that they have a new update waiting for them this morning, albeit a minor one. The latest update for Google's flagship phone leaves the device on Android 4.0.4, but ups the build number to IMM76I, from the older IMM76D. As for what's actually new, some GNex owners are reporting that this fixes the intermittent signal loss issue that'd been affecting some on IMM76D, as well as remedying smaller issues like occasional lock screen lag when using automatic brightness. (Be sure to let us know in the comments if you notice any other changes on your Nexus after applying the update.)

And for any neckbeards out there keeping track of technical stuff, it seems the new software leaves the phone's baseband as it was, while including a fresh kernel built last Friday.

The update should be pushed out to GSM Galaxy Nexus owners over the next few weeks, if earlier release patterns are anything to go by. If you want to manually update (and have the "yakju" variant of the Galaxy Nexus), you can follow our usual instructions to do so, swapping out the old OTA URL for this link right here.

Thanks, Scott!

Garth on TV farm life: 'I'm like an animal hoarder'

By Randee Dawn

Divorce is tough; public divorce -- the kind actors Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli are dealing with -- can be even tougher.

Garth is undergoing her personal upheaval while promoting her new CMT reality show, "A Little Bit Country," and she admits it's not something she's happy discussing.

"That is probably the hardest part about (the split) actually, the timing of everything," she told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie Tuesday, clearly holding back emotion. "When I started to take this show on, I wasn't headed down this road. ... It happened in the middle of filming the show, and now part of my job as an actress is following through and doing press ... and people want to talk about it. I am OK talking about it, but it's not something you really want to talk about."

The show, she insists, had nothing to do with their separation: "The show was something the girls (Garth and Facinelli have three daughters) and I wanted to do, to keep us busy creatively. ... The two really did not go together at all."

That said, she shot down some of the internet rumors that cropped up unrelated to filming -- including one that claimed Garth was jealous of Facinelli's rising star (with "Twilight" and "Nurse Jackie"). "There was nothing like that going on," she said crisply. "I was very happy for him and so happy to be at home with the kids and enjoying my 'early retirement.' I didn't want to work at that time, I just wanted to be at home on the farm."

Just how that farm life works out -- including the scene where her assistant loses a bet and has to suck on a cow udder -- is what "A Little Bit Country" is all about. But there's one thing Garth remains unsure about: Just how many animals they currently have on that farm.

"A lot," she said with a grin reminiscent of her "Beverly Hills, 90210" days. "I'm like an animal hoarder at this point."

"Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country" premieres on CMT on Friday, April 20.
