That might not be an airplane in the night sky you see Sunday during the MTV Video Music Awards. Actually, it could just be B.o.B himself shooting through the air.

“I’m still waiting to hear back about my space boots that I’m supposed to be wearing,” revealed the “Nothin’ On You” emcee during an interview on “The Ralphie Radio Show.” “Basically, (the space boots) flip the polarization of whatever you’re standing on so that you actually float.”

B.o.B was unsure if he’d have them in time for Sunday, but joked that if he did, he would wear nothing but those on stage. It’s fitting that he’s attempting to wear space boots, given that he’s nominated to win five “Moon Men” at Sunday’s VMAs.

Certainly the rapper doesn’t need astronaut shoes to feel he’s on “Cloud 9” these days. With a number one album and a handful of big hits spawning from it, 2010 has been good to B.o.B. The success is only yielding more opportunities, one of which could make for an interesting collaboration with the band Train.

“We actually did a few shows together, and I really got to learn a lot about just everything that I’m in and everything that I’m doing because Train, they had a really big hit also like, a few years back. So for them, this is like, round two,” he explained. “I learned a lot from them so; hopefully… you never know… something could emerge!”

The emcee revealed him and Train’s Pat Monahan “have definitely talked” about teaming up in the studio – now it’s just a matter of finding time. B.o.B believes that “once the dust settles” on their current schedules, the two will work something out.

David Archuleta admitted on “The Ralphie Radio Show” that he doesn’t watch MTV’s hit reality show “Jersey Shore” – matter of fact – he even needed a synopsis.

“What is it about, exactly?” Archuleta innocently asked – completely unaware of stars like “DJ Pauly D” or “The Situation.” Fear not though, as David had heard of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi before.

“I was at ‘Good Day New York’ and everyone signs a wall and there was one that said ‘Snooki’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, who’s ‘Snoo-key’?’” he recalled. Archie later mentioned that he heard of the show before, but didn’t really know much else about the show or its cast.

The Idol-alum also said he’d be more intimated singing in front of Simon Cowell than Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, who is rumored to be a judge on the upcoming season of “American Idol.”

Thankfully for Archuelta fans, the singer knows this much: his sophomore LP, The Other Side of Down, is finished, and will be released October 5.

“I definitely had a lot more say (in the creative process of the album)… I just wanted this album to be me,” said Archuleta. “The theme of this album is ‘introducing David Archuleta’ to everyone.”

The process in opening up and speaking more about himself began with the writing of his memoir, Chords of Strength.

“At first, I was like, ‘Why the heck should I be writing a book? I’m only 19 years old,’” he said. “I can’t help but be myself. So, I wanted to do the same with my music.”

Archuleta said the new album is currently in the mastering process – and revealed that there is also a title track to the LP – one of his favorite’s on the piece, thus the name.

When you watch the beginning of Season 2 on MTV’s hit reality show “Jersey Shore”, expect to catch Angelina Pivarnick in Miami well, “doing her thing” as a single lady. But that was taped then, and this is happening now: the self-proclaimed “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island” is once again love-struck in New Jersey.

“He’s a police officer from actually Seaside Heights where we filmed first season,” revealed Pivarnick of her boyfriend. She called in to “The Ralphie Radio Show” to promote the next installment of the fist-pumping series, set to air Thursday July 29 at 10 p.m. on MTV. “So that should make it a little more interesting for you.”

Will we see this cop, whose name is Paul, enforce the law on the show? Pivarnick didn’t divulge, however she did chat about what we may see of her when the next season begins.

“I hooked up with my share of guys in Miami,” she admitted. “I’m a classy girl but when I’m single and I’m partying… you know… I didn’t have a boyfriend so I did my thing.”

Pivarnick noted that her boyfriend and his family, who she is on good terms with, will not be watching the beginning of Season 2 “out of respect” for her. Filming is complete; however Angelina said that neither her nor any of the cast members have seen any footage other than what’s available on-line. She expects MTV will screen the episodes for the “guidos” and “guidettes” before the air date. While Pivarnick is curious to see the new season, she is already thinking about the third installment, and the rumors that this time around – she may be gone for good.

“It’s unfortunate that it’s gotta be like that. I feel like we are the original eight,” Angelina said. “I’m back on the second season, I think that we should all be going back to the Jersey Shore.”

Going back for Season 3… does that mean Angelina is back in good graces with the crew after Season 2? Stay tuned.
