MEGHAN MCCAIN GOT 'NAKED'

While a lot of E-list names are starring in a new PSA for Style Networks skin cancer prevention campaign, only Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain is really making headlines because of it. Maybe that has something to do with all the women in the video going naked to talk about skin cancer, and she's at the mercy of politicos who get upset if someone so much as glances at them sideways. McCain talks about prevention in the 30-second video (watch it at tampabay.com/blogs/juice), which also features Brandy, Tempestt Bledsoe, Danielle Fishel, Tatyana Ali and Cacee Cobb. The thing to note is that she apparently does it while nude, as all the actresses, athletes and hangers-on declare they're "done with being naked" by not wearing sunscreen. This got the talking heads upset, but McCain says not to worry, fear-mongers. Pundits in DC can calm themselves. I filmed a skin cancer PSA in a strapless juicy tube dress. All you can see is my collar bone, she wrote via her Twitter account, @McCainBlogette. Both my parents have had skin cancer, everyone should be aware of the extreme dangers the sun presents and how simply using sunscreen is a simple way to prevent skin cancer from occurring. I take it very seriously which is why I participated in the PSA. Now, can we quit freaking out because we saw the woman's tan lines?

Big Boi buys kid a label

The Juice* remembers back to our 16th birthday, when we wanted a new car and a night out with friends, instead getting a night shift at the local KFC where we worked and were gifted a 1979 Ford Fairmont. Oh, to be the daughter of Outkast's Big Boi, 16-year-old Jordan Patton, who got a new record label, Purple Kidz for her big day! "My daughter just turned 16 years old, and you can see it on MTV's (My Super Sweet Sixteen), where they get cars, and things that depreciate and just don't mean nothing," 36-year-old Antwan Patton told Billboard about the gift. "I wanted to give my child something that she can grow and build and nurture. So I gave her her own label." Purple Kidz already has a first artist, signing 12-year-old Gabbie Rae, whom you may recall from an episode of The Tyra Banks Show. Jordan and daddy are the only two partners on the marquee, which will complement Big Boi's Purple Ribbon All-Stars label. The biggest upside: The possibility of Andre Benjamin showing up to record a track or two. Oh, look, Uncle Andre 3000 is here!

Skid Row's Bach arrested

Skid Row is not just the name of Sebastian Bach's former '80s hair-metal band. It could also be his future address if he keeps up the shenanigans. TMZ reports that Bach has been arrested for weed for the second time in six months. Bach was stopped for "failing to keep right" on a highway in New Jersey's Monmouth County around 3:30 Tuesday morning, TMZ reports. The cop checked into things a little bit and found the wacky tobacky. The 43-year-old was arrested and charged with possession. He was arrested for the same thing in Canada in December. Maybe Bach was foreshadowing his autobiography when he sang 18 and Life back in 1989.

Will, Jada are Oprah's last guests

We've been waiting to find out who will be Oprah Winfrey's final guests on her last show on May 25 and now we know: It'll be Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith, TheDaily.com says. Well, that's really not all that surprising, but hey, President Obama already has been on this season. The show already announced they will have A Million Little Pieces author James Frey on for a two-episode throwdown during that final week, so that cage match has been put on the playbill. The only caveat to this announcement is that there may be other guests as well, so The Daily posits the Smiths' Scientologist pals Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes could conceivably show up to announce Katie really is preggers again. Also not specified is whether kids Jaden and Willow will appear with mom and dad. Since almost every move they make these days is to advance their kids' career, don't be surprised when Will announces Jaden will be starring in a remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but this time about a kid from Beverly Hills who has to move to West Philadelphia. Quick, someone call NBC!

Break-up Dish

Leo, Bar have split again

All those solo pics of globetrotting Bar Refaeli said it before the New York Post did, but the model and Leonardo DiCaprio broke up last week after being together for something like six years, give or take a six-month break in 2009. Aw, that's too bad for those kids. Will two beautiful, rich and famous people ever find love again? "It was amicable, they're still friends and they are still talking," a source told the paper. "They just grew apart and went their separate ways. Neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions." Word is there was no third party involved, no one was cheating, no one was on drugs and no one hit anybody, making for a bland breakup. It's almost like celebrities have real lives when they aren't being given millions of dollars by normal people.

Hard-to-spell match is over

The most mismatched relationship in FameVille has come to a close, as Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere and heavyweight boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko have broken up. It seems being apart was too much for the tiny woman and the hulking Ukrainian. "Even though we've decided splitting up is best for both of us, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends," the 21-year-old Panettiere told People. Klitschko, the 35-year-old IBF, IBO and WBO champ, said the distance is what did them in. "We had a great time together, but it's not that easy to manage a relationship between two continents," he said. "I have a lot of respect for Hayden as a person and as a friend, and I believe we'll keep our friendship even after the separation." Now he can chase after Bar Refaeli and she can go after Leonardo DiCaprio, so that's a plus.
