LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Contrary to an online report, Jason Biggs has not been attacked by a Gibraltar ape while on vacation on the island, his rep told Access Hollywood.
“Jason’s in LA, had a meeting yesterday with his agents,” the rep told Access. “Not everything on the Internet is true.”
Earlier on Thursday, the UK’s Telegraph reported that the star had gone sightseeing in Gibraltar, only to find himself face-to-face with a Barbary macaque that “tried to bite his face off.” There are reportedly some 200 “Barbary apes” in Gibraltar – a species native to North Africa and brought to the British territory by soldiers in the 18th century.
When Kid Cudi performs with Wale and the go-go group UCB, the VMA house band, at Sunday's awards show, he will take some time out to remember 2008 house-band member DJ AM, who died unexpectedly last month.
"DJ AM was a good homie of mine, so we're going to do a little something for him," the VMA-nominated rapper told MTV News. "We doing this for AM. He had so much love."
For Cudi's time at the Video Music Awards, he plans to make sure his party is all about AM. "We're going to be celebrating his life," he said. "You know what I mean? It's going to be a great night, and I don't know about everybody else, but I'm celebrating the VMAs in memory of Adam Goldstein."
Wale spoke to MTV News after AM's death about picking up where Travis Barker and DJ AM left off last year. "AM was one of the greatest DJs I've ever seen play," he said. "Him and Travis had such a chemistry. [AM was] definitely one of the greater ears in music, and he's definitely underrated [as a DJ]."
Wale and UCB will also be joined by Solange Knowles, Pitbull and 3OH!3 for a series of originals and covers that will definitely keep the VMA crowd rocking all night. If Wale's VMA rehearsal Thursday was any indication, those covers could include songs by Britney Spears, Coldplay and Kings of Leon.
