VMA Rumor Control
August 29, 2005

A slew of famous faces came out for Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, and with all the commotion, there's bound to be some new hookups. So is it true that Mariah Carey got cozy with the newly-single Eddie Murphy?

Yes -- According to several sources and photographic evidence, the VMA vixen was whispering sweet nothings into the divorcing comic's ears.

Weather certainly didn't slow the VMAs down, although it did stop production on Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell's "Miami Vice" remake. But is it true that Hurricane Katrina caused Farrell to evacuate Miami, fearing for his safety?

No -- "It was actually fine," Farrell told us. "I sat on the balcony of my hotel, and it wasn't too bad."

Meanwhile, Jessica Alba spent much of Sunday night snuggling with her boyfriend, Cash Warren, so is the rumor true that Alba is about to star in a movie version of "I Dream of Jeannie" with Jimmy Fallon?

No -- "That's a rumor," Alba told us, adding, "That would have been awesome though."

And we all know Paris Hilton can party like a rock star, as she proved Sunday night, but is she really recording an album?

Yes -- "My album is going to blow away everybody's," Hilton insisted. The heiress added that she plans to rap "a little bit" on the album.

Also Sunday night, Jessica Simpson launched her new clothing line, Princy, and her sister, Ashlee, celebrated her upcoming CD. But is there a sibling rivalry brewing?

No -- In fact, Jessica gushed about Ashlee's new music, saying, "She wrote an amazing album. I think everybody is going to be blown away."
