I saw the [Brian] Dunkleman headline and I'm straight," the L.A.-based deejay says pointedly. "I will take your name in vain on the radio. C'mon, baby!

Hey, how else could he deal with Simon Cowell's weekly criticisms of his clothes? "People are very polarized about my wardrobe," he chuckles. "They love it or hate it."

The bitch ain't so nice anymore." I guess this means no more free Koosh Balls. read more

Because as Kylothian badass Serleena, the Practice starlet has what she calls "a great part in a great movie with huge movie stars." Darn tootin'!
