It's a three-day weekend, and the final one before the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Provided that you're not going to be dodging Hurricane Earl, take the extra day to familiarize yourself with all the nominees, performers and presenting superstars who will descend on the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12, with the pre-show starting at 8 p.m. Eastern and the proper show going live at 9 on MTV.
While you're at it, go ahead and catch up with all of the greatness you may have missed here on the MTV Newsroom Blog, featuring stories on "Dancing With the Stars," Conan O'Brien's new show and a little concert starring Jay-z and Eminem.
» The new cast of "Dancing With the Stars" was announced this week, and based on past performances by like-minded people, both Audrina Patridge and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino have solid chances to do well.

When the Insane Clown Posse paid a visit to the MTV Newsroom on Wednesday (September 1), they were running a little bit late. That's typical of most of the stars who come to chat with us, as their schedules are usually overloaded and navigating midtown traffic to get to our Times Square offices can be a little tricky. But Icp were slightly tardy because of an issue unique to them, as they were touching up their makeup before coming over.
Despite the fact that they are extremely close to their fans, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope tend not to go anywhere without first putting their faces on. They wear their makeup everywhere — including in their new movie "Big Money Rustlas," which was just released on DVD. The face paint is an important part of their respective characters, and wearing the makeup allows Juggalos to identify each other more easily. It »

Last year, the Insane Clown Posse took the Internet by storm when they released an informercial advertising the Gathering, the annual festival curated and hosted by Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J. In the year that followed, Icp stayed on the minds of Web surfers everywhere with their much-talked-about music video for "Miracles." Now the clowns are back with another infomercial advertising this year's Gathering (the 11th annual!), which will go down August 12-15 once again in Cave In Rock, Illinois.
The new commercial kicks it up a notch, presenting the lineup and features of this year's event with a new video that is 17 minutes long. So just in case you're not like us and totally willing to watch it over and over again, here's the breakdown of the highlights.
00:08 The narrator describes the Gathering as "the nation's only truly underground music festival, with no corporate sponsorship." The guys »

They say I have clown phobia, but phobias are irrational fears, so they're wrong. My fear is quite rational. Thanks to all the whiteface on display, watching the trailer for off-the-wall western Big Money Rustlas, the second Insane Clown Posse movie, was quite a thrill ride for me. Nothing quite as heart-jabbing as the big Zombieland cubicle surprise (apparently, that made me scream and swear loudly in the cinema but I don't even remember). You can see the trailer for yourself after the break. I'll throw in the extended trailer for their first picture Big Money Hustlas too. The new film premiered last weekend at the Fillmore Detroit. According to a report in the Detroit News, "the mood was more like a concert than a film screening, as the crowd of around 2,000 cheered and whooped throughout the movie". Just the way Peter likes it. Trailer via Videogum »

Last time we check in with our pals Insane Clown Posse, we mused over the infomercial for the 2009 Gathering of the Juggalos. Like a bizarro trailer for a bizarro movie that actually went down in real-life Southern Illinois, the infomercial was a treat on many levels (in fact, we found 30). But now, thanks to the intrepid reporting team over at Videogum, we have an actual trailer for an actual Insane Clown Posse movie. It’s called Big Money Rustlas, it’s a “comedic western,” it premiered in Detroit over the weekend and you can watch the trailer below: »
