Dave Navarro for PETA
Rocker Dave Navarro has bared all for a shocking new PETA ad that sends out a message about animal cruelty in the cosmetics industry.

The Jane's Addiction guitarist is often seen wearing plenty of eye makeup, nail polish and more, and he recently learned that some beauty product firms use cruel animal testing to determine if their products are safe for human use; so he decided to only use products that aren't tested on animals.

Unlike the European Union and Israel, where animal testing has been banned in the cosmetics industry, there are no current laws in the U.S. prohibiting animal test...

The man who was convicted of shooting and killing Dave Navarro's mother, Connie Hopkins Navarro, and her best friend Susan Marshall Jory in 1983 has escaped death row.

John Riccardi was sentenced to be executed in 1994, but officials at the California Supreme Court reversed his death sentence.

After the killings, Riccardi became a fugitive. He was captured in 1991 after someone tipped off police about the murderer's whereabouts f...

The Largest Obstacle For Lamar Odom And Khloe Kardashian Is Their Reality TV Life

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
One would think that only dating a month before tying the knot could be a factor in the length of a marriage. How about the fact that the husband works away from home for eight months out of the year? Wrong. According to PopEater, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian's marriage is already doomed due to their Reality TV lifestyle.

PopEater's first mark against the Odom-Kardashian pairing? "Danger sign number one is that Khloe and Lamar have already let the whirlwind of reality romance take precedence over their relationship. The pair reportedly rushed to the altar in order to stay on the deman...

TV Reality Romances That Ended In Divorce

Jon and Kate Gosselin
When you open the doors to your world and let television cameras capture your daily routine, it's hard to maintain a normal life. Especially if you are a celebrity couple broadcasting your relationship for the public to scrutinize. It seems that more often than not, couples that appear on reality shows together end up splitting up by the time their series is released on DVD. Is it inevitable that the couple will split up? Are they taking a risk when they sign on the dotted line?

Not all couples fall victim to the reality show curse, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed and Ozzy and Sharon Os...

MTV Reality Show Couples Doomed From The Start

May 14th, 2009 11:22am EDT
Nick & Jessica
Oh, to be famous. The advantages of being a celebrity are copious. They get free meals and special tables at restaurants, VIP access to fancy hotel rooms and clubs, and have personal assistants to follow them around and obey their every instruction. They get clothes and gadgets sent to them "just because," and are actually taken seriously when they request things like a new toilet seat and a 12-foot boa constrictor to be in their dressing rooms before scheduled appearances.

Unfortunately for celebrities, however, fame isn't always rainbows and smiles, especially when there are cam...

Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson has no regrets over her reality TV show Newlyweds: Nick And Jessica, insisting the doomed program is not to blame for her divorce from husband and co-star Nick Lachey.

The couple put their love and arguments on display for all to see when they signed up for the MTV show in 2003, which documented their life as husband and wife. The show aired for four seasons and wrapped in early 2005 - just months before the singers split.

However, Simpson is refusing to blame the invasive show for contributing to her and Lachey's divorce, insisting she only has fond memories of ...

Dave Navarro's super-group Camp Freddy has pulled out of a planned concert in Cancun, Mexico - because the swine flu epidemic is too "serious" for the band to travel to the country.

Perry Farrell Calls Jane's Addiction Reunion 'Awkward'

March 26th, 2009 6:00pm EDT
Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell fears the group's "awkward" reunion could be short lived if the bandmates can't bury past differences and get on with making music. Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Eric Avery came together to receive a lifetime achievement award at the inaugural NME Awards USA last year, and performed at the event. That led to reunion talks, low-key shows and eventually plans to tour with Nine Inch Nails this summer.

But the singer insists the reunion is far from harmonious.

After performing with his band in a former supe...

She says, "We both feel like there's no rush. I think that when you have the past history that I have and you've been married and divorced quite a few times, it's kind of nice to take baby steps, it's goo...

'The Cho Show': Korean of the Year: Episode 1 Recap

August 22nd, 2008 11:21am EDT
Margaret Cho
The late 11pm start time for the first episode of "The Cho Show" on VH1 seemed to me to be an exciting harbinger of edgy, wickedly profane comedy to come. It all started promisingly enough: Comedienne extraordinaire Margaret Cho opened her new reality series with hard rock, a funny bit about Jack Black and his only towel (you had to be there) and a flash of her va-jay-jay - suitable and desired for a late-night crowd. Then something truly unexpected happened: Margaret became mundane.

The usually outrageous Cho is not only restrained in this series opener, she's downright neutered. Her ...
