Johnny Knoxville

TV stuntman Johnny Knoxville is recovering from surgery after having his genitals stitched up.The "Jackass" star was attempting to replicate late daredevil Evel Knievel's famous motorcycle back flip in Oklahoma over the weekend when he landed in the wrong spot.Knoxville was taken to a nearby hospital, but the cuts, swelling and bruising were so severe doctors couldn't operate on him right away. In a phone interview with blogger Marc Malkin just 10 minutes after surgery on Thursday, Knoxville said, "I'm still a little groggy from the anesthesia. I just got the catheter out, and the doctor said I can resume normal functions immediately -- like, manly functions."But Knoxville fears he'll have nightmares about the painful accident for years to come. He adds, "I was trying to back flip a motorcycle. The bike goes up about 15, 20 feet in the air and comes back down and breaks its handlebar off in between my legs. I was laying there spread eagle."They've never seen handlebars break off before, much less between someone's legs."Knoxville tore his urethra in the accident, which will be broadcast on MTV this weekend, when the prankster and his crew of stunt pals take over the network for 24 hours to launch their new Web site.

Britney Spears is in talks to apologise for her MTV Video Music Awards disaster at the Emmys. The 'Gimme More’' singer is reportedly hoping to redeem herself after her flop performance last Sunday at the US TV awards ceremony this Sunday. An Emmys insider said: "Britney is in negotiations to appear at the ceremony, but nothing is confirmed. The idea is to have her come on and apologize for the VMAs. She's weighing up the offer." A source close to the 25-year-old singer told Us Weekly magazine: "I can't say this is 100 per cent not true. All I can say is that the Emmy people aren't dealing with her record company, her manager or her agents at William Morris. So if she is doing anything for the Emmys then it's not going through the official channels." Meanwhile, it has been claimed Britney was pushed into her heavily criticised VMAs appearance by her entertainment lawyer Gary Stiffelman. Reports claim the 'Toxic' singer was reluctant to perform, saying she wasn’t ready, but Stiffelman insisted it would be great publicity for her new album due to be released on November 13. Britney reportedly drowned her sorrows after her onstage catastrophe. The pop star allegedly partied and downed shots with P. Diddy at his private suite located in the Fantasy Tower of Las Vegas' Palms Hotel until 7am. A source said:"She couldn't stand." Diddy's people had to get her back to her room as discreetly as possible so nobody would see what state she was in." A representative for Diddy denies the claims, saying: "She stopped by the party for a while. He offered her a drink, which she refused, she drank water instead. She was not there until 7am.

Snoop Dogg has been refused entry into Australia. The rapper failed to pass the country's strict character test, which considers criminal convictions, and his visa has been cancelled. Snoop, who was due fly to Australia to co-host the MTV Australian Video Music Awards on Sunday, has 28 days to contest the decision. Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio Network: "He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country. "This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang, and is still associated with it apparently, that's been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the Los Angeles area." MTV are currently in discussions with immigration officials to overturn the star's ban. MTV managing director Dave Sibly said: "We're putting a lot of energy in to making a case for how popular Snoop is and the fact he's been here before without incident. "We're hopeful that when people tune in to MTV at seven o'clock on Sunday, they'll see Snoop on the red carpet." The 35-year-old hip-hop star received a warning after overstaying his visa by two days when he visited Australia in February. Snoop - real name Calvin Broadus - was recently given five years probation and 800 hours of community service after pleading no contest to gun and drug charges in the US. This is the second time this year the rapper has been barred from entering another country. Last month, he was forced to scrap the UK leg of his tour with P. Diddy after being denied a visa, following a brawl in London's Heathrow Airport last year. Earlier this year, the rapper was interviewed by Swedish police on suspicion of using illegal narcotics after performing in Stockholm. Snoop's lawyer, Donald Etra, said he had not heard about his client's refused entry into Australia and could not comment.
