Tila Tequila Is An Alien With Too Much Botox

Tila Tequila
Tila Tequila performed in London on Wednesday wearing black hot pants and a loose black, white & yellow blouse that clearly showed her tattoos. She kind of looks like an alien who had too much botox.

Tila also joined Damian Marley to celebrate his birthday at London's Kyashii club along with Nas and Amy Winehouse.

The reality star recently blogged about meeting Winehouse - one of her favorite stars. She wrote, "I am not fans of many 'celebrities' however Amy Winehouse is the only person that I truly enjoy and admire. I really like her as she is different than the 'HOLLYWOOD' types."


Is Amy Winehouse Pregnant? (Pics)

Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse wore a pink swimsuit with denim hotpants during a night out at Kyashii club in London on Wednesday night after dinner with a friend and a trip to a Soho sex shop. Looks like she might be pregnant - either that or she has a serious pot belly. What do you think?

Amy joined reggae singer Damian Marley and rapper Nas for the evening to celebrate Damian's birthday. The trio partied well into the night at the London sushi hotspot before moving on to the Runway club, around the corner, before returning to Kyashii to carry on partying until almost 5 a.m.

We hope she's not partying t...

Damian Marley's Dreads Are Really, Really Long

Damian Marley
How tall is Bob Marley's son Damian? Because that's how long his dreadlocks are. He started growing them back in 1837, long before Reggae music was even invented. That's how long they are.

We spotted Damian at his hotel in London on Tuesday after performing a live gig with rapper Nas at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Fun facts about Damian:
-He's the youngest of Bob's sons and was only 2 when his father died of cancer.
-He formed his first band at age 13.

Stephen Marley To Release Debut Album, 'Mind Control,' March 20

Stephen Marley
There's an old black and white photo of Stephen Marley; it's a portrait of the lion as a young man. He's standing against a wall of bamboo rocking short hair and an '80s-style I-Threes t-shirt—puffed up and proud the way only a rebel youth can be. But there's something else in the image—something about the intensity and focus in Stephen's face even as a teen—that shows in an instant that having the last name "Marley" has nothing to do with being the son of a musical icon or an heir to a throne. It does, however, have everything to do with being an individual with a purpose.
