We at The Hollywood Gossip worry about the state of America when Flavor Flav can star in a hit television show.

Sometimes, though, we have faith that fellow citizens can recognize an obvious lack of talent when its CDs are thrust upon the shelves. For instance, no one bought the joke of a Paris Hilton album, thank goodness.

Call him the caped crusader... or just a complete jackass.

In any event, Kevin Federline swooped onstage for a hot performance at the KIIS-FM/West Hollywood Halloween carnival yesterday, as the rapping aspirant and father of four officially released his debut album, Playing With Fire.

The Marines may like to look at Jenna Jameson, but sadly, that enjoyable act will be restricted to magazines and videos like the rest of us (Craig Schelske included, no doubt).

The reason we bring this up is not because of our love for Jenna Jameson pictures, but because the porn star's boyfriend, ultimate fighter Tito Ortiz, was scheduled to give a speech as a guest of honor in front of 800 men in uniform at a "birthday" ball at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego on November 12.

Rocker Prince is apparently playing an invitation only, private event at Club Rio tonight in Las Vegas -- marking the start of his taking up residence at the hotel as a permanent performer.

Rumor (not Rumer -- will that ever get old?) has it that Prince may be out to take over Club Rio (located inside the Rio hotel) and re-name it 3121, the same name given to his last album.

Although October 26 marked Keith Urban's 39th birthday, the occasion was less than celebratory. Urban, who's been pulling a Nicole Richie (minus the whole starvation thing), spent the day in a treatment center for alcohol abuse. It's quite sad, and leaves many questioning the future prospects of Kurban.

Meanwhile, Keith's wife of four months, Nicole Kidman, also 39, dined at the Beverly Hills restaurant Matsuhisa, ordering sashimi along with a smattering of her Australian relatives.

On October 26, a rep for Nicole Richie announced that the "actress," whose weight slipped to 87 pounds this summer, was undergoing treatment for her weight issues.

She postponed filming her reality show, The Simple Life 5, dropped out of sight for three days, and moved into a friend's house for support.
