Jack White Is A BIG Elvis Presley Fan! Bought The King’s First Recordings In An Auction For A Cool $300,000!

Well, it’s one for the money! Three for the !

Three hundred thousand to be exact!

Jack White was the one who bought the unreleased from the himself — Elvis !

And he was able to win by bidding a whopping 0,000! And Jack is NOT greedy with his new purchase! In fact it’s quite the opposite!

The hard rocker bid and won the recordings — which include an 18-year-old Elvis doing covers of That’s When Your Heartaches Begin and My Happiness on 78 rpm acetate from 1953 — at an auction that took place at the Graceland Mansion this past January 8th.

And Jack is planning to release them on vinyl through his label Third Man Records really soon!

Like April 18th soon! Which happens to also be Record Store Day!

Jack says that he’s doing the release “in order to create an object so close to the historic original as to almost be indistinguishable from one other.”

Sounds good to us! It’s so nice of him to buy the first records Elvis ever made and then immediately give it to the public!

He’ll make some money off of it, but still!

He’s ALSO doing this for the love of the music! And we love him for doing so!

Kelly Osbourne Makes Her First Tweet Since Threatening To Quit Fashion Police Over The Giuliana Rancic & Zendaya Scandal!

Kelly Osbourne has finally broken her silence!

After initially sharing some of the heat for the comments made on Fashion Zendaya, took to social media to make sure it was clear that she had nothing to do with the patchouli oil and weed opinions.

She got so heated at one point that she even threatened to leave the show!

It turns out Kelly was extra mad because it came out on Wednesday that she actually tried to tell Giuliana Rancic to it with the stereotypical comparisons during some unused takes, but her advice was not followed.

Well, Kelly has once again taken to Twitter to comment on the ordeal, saying:

How diplomatic!

From the , we’re assuming that she’s acknowledging G’s numerous apologies, as well as praising Zendaya for so mature about the whole situation.

We’re glad Kelly’s handling being in the middle of this whole thing well!

Hopefully will just listen to her a little more next time…

Exclusive! Lance Bass Dishes On His Being In The First Celebrity Gay Wedding TV Special!

Although he’s used to performing in front of millions as a member of *NSYNC, Lance Bass still felt jitters on his day.

The 35-year-old pop star married Michael Turchin last December, and the fabulous fete will air next month for a special on E!

Loves Michael: The Bass Wedding will be the first gay wedding TV special. Yes, we’ve seen two complete strangers wed (Darva Conger, anyone?!), two Kim Kardashian weddings, but not two men! Progress!

[ Video: Did Lance Spill The Beans On Justin Timberlake's Baby? ]

The newlyweds chatted exclusively with PerezHilton.com their engagement (there were two, but the first one didn’t count!) and their big day.

Lance describes his first failed proposal:

“It was in our favorite city of New Orleans. It was just that perfect timing and I just knew I wanted to propose. I got down on one knee, and then some people wanted to take pictures of us and totally ruined the whole moment.”

Michael agreed:

“I was very shocked and I was so happy. [A stranger] actually came up to Lance to say he had a story to tell him while he’s proposing. So we had to cut the proposal in half to have a conversation. I was a little pissed.”

The second one — in Africa — went much smoother! No interruptions this time, as Michael revealed:

“Lance got me a ring that I had loved, and so we just got back to our room one night, and there’s all these flower pedals on the bed, and there’s a bubble bath, candles everywhere, champagne, and chocolate. And then he does get down on one knee again and proposes, and it was so amazing.”

As for having the first gay celebrity wedding, the couple knows the significance goes beyond just the two of them. Michael explained:

“it’s very scary thinking that you’re wedding is going to be on television, is just going try to find the drama in it. And they automatically know that half of the world is just going hate this no matter what just because it’s a gay wedding. But we see the bigger picture. And we know that this is going to help a lot of kids out there, and make them feel better about themselves. And that’s the reason we wanted to do this.”

Of course, no wedding would be complete without amazing food, and the grooms were treated to a custom heart-shaped lasagna courtesy of Robert Earl of Buca di Beppo fame. Lance recalled:

“He got Buca di Beppo to do the whole entire wedding, and it was some of the best food . It was smorgasbord, but definitely more of the Italian side. We made sure that we donated everything leftover, the flowers, the food; everything was donated because we definitely did not want that at our house.”

We’re pretty these two hunky husbands wouldn’t want to have leftovers for days!

Lance Loves Michael airs February 5th at 8:00pm on E!

​EXCLUSIVE! MTV Will Honor Martin Luther King Jr. By Airing In Black & White For The First Time Ever To Get Everyone Talking About Race

Race is an issue that this needs to be talked , and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.

This Jr. Day, for the time in the network’s history, they’ll be all of their programs in and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The goal is jar audiences enough that they’ll begin having, what MTV is calling “The Talk – candid, confident and ‘color brave’ conversations on race and bias.” It’s all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.

Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.

We have a first look at Penn Badgley’s clip for you (above)!

MTV’s President, Stephen Freeman, talked about this, saying:

“Millennials believe strongly in fairness, but they can also find it difficult to talk openly about race – to be not simply ‘color blind’ but ‘color brave.’ Our audience is looking for a way to bring the national conversation on race into their homes and this campaign will give them a forum to express true color bravery.”

We think this is a fantastic idea, because the key to tolerance is educating ourselves and learning to celebrate our differences!
