Rick Ross found something better than sex: "Aw, man. It's better than sex when you go create something that's actually dope and turn around [and put it right out]," he said about releasing mixtapes. "That's like one of my favorite kicks." Hey, that's a fun image. [VH1]

Speaking of which, don't worry, a sex tape featuring a threesome between actor Eric Dane, wife Rebecca Gayheart and former beauty queen Kari Ann Peniche did not just hit the internet. Apparently the three naked celebs were just "having fun, hanging out together," according to Dane's lawyer. "This is simply a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public...Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a 'sex tape.' It is a private tape made for only my clients' personal use." "Private tape," huh. Yeah, we're still gonna check that out. [TheStarLedger]

Katy Perry was just so miffed that she didn't get the part she wanted in upcoming 'West Side Story' themed ads for the VMA's. "I know I should be playing Natalie Wood['s part, which is being played by Taylor Swift], because I've got the big eyes and the brown hair. But everyone keeps telling me Anita is hotter, cooler and sluttier. So I can relate to that!" She also added that she's looking forward to dressing as crazy as she sounds. "It's not like the other awards shows where you have to be popular and pretty and stuff. I'd come and look like a real-life cat if I wanted to ... or just a strawberry." Well then. [MTV]
