A post of bleugh [Ashlee]


Are you ready for some football?!?
Ashlee Simson clearly is!
The toothy starlet was all smiles as she hosted a Super Bowl kick-off party last night at Myst night club in Scottsdale, AZ.
The redheaded lip-syncing sensation brought her Fall Out Boy bassist beau Pete Wentz to accompany her at the club. Ashlee sang three songs for the packed house from her upcoming album, Bittersweet World.
Her performance lasted less than 20 minutes, and with drinks priced at $16, partygoers were less than thrilled to say the least.

New My Chemical Romance song..

MCR debuted a new song 2 days ago in Hong Kong, it's untitled still, and who knows if it will ever see the light of day on any record.

Usually when they sing a new song live, it reappears later really changed both musically and lyrically, so this song is probably just a skeleton... either way, marriage has made gerard way really .... mooshy

Courtney Love On Rehab, Buddhism & Britney

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Images of Britney Spears strapped to a gurney in early 2008 shocked many, but she wasn’t the first celebrity to have it happen to her. In 2004, rocker Courtney Love was also photographed handcuffed to a gurney, about to be committed for her own erratic behavior.

Now, in her first interview in over a year, Courtney reveals what really happened, and her thoughts on Britney.

"You know, I was in rehab, what was that, three-and-a-half years ago now? And it worked," Love told Access Hollywood.

Claiming sobriety for years, Courtney Love watches as Britney crumbles.

Britney’s troubled times has this recovering addict worried.

"I know the exactitudes of what's going on, having been there," Love said.

Now 43, her disheveled courtroom days and bizarre antics are behind her – at least for now.

"Here is what's gonna happen if she doesn't get help — something very, very bad is gonna happen," Love explained of Britney. "Marilyn Monroe was strapped to a gurney too, but other then me and Britney, no one else has ever been strapped to a gurney."

Back in the summer of 2004, Courtney was hospitalized after being found irrational and distressed.

"And I sort of made that template pretty hardcore," Love said.

Love said she hopes the public will become better informed about drugs.

"People need to be more educated about drugs and the effect of drugs," she said. "It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is a genetic condition and it is a disease¦ It's a part of our brain that doesn't care about consequences, doesn't care if our children are gonna get taken away."

Love credits actor Orlando Bloom of all people, for helping her stay on the straight and narrow by helping her keep up with the Buddhist practice of chanting.

"We do chant everyday," Love explained. "12-step demands that you have a spiritual practice that you do everyday.

"I love Orlando for this," Love continued. "He doesn't mind being outed [as a Buddhist]. I don't mind talking about it because it has changed my entire life, changed everything — restructured my body, restructured my physicality. Truly I can, not all the time, but I can take joy at really ****ty situations."

Now in a much more peaceful place, Love told Access, she’s ready to reach out to Spears and she also claims to once have confronted Lindsay Lohan.

"I went up to Lohan's room one time and there was a show on called ‘101 Celebrity Oops’ and I am like every other one you know, boobs out, legs everywhere throwing **** at Madonna, you know, whatever. I'm like Lindsay, ‘Look! Drugs are bad!’" Love recalled.

But now, Love has to deal with the pressures of young Hollywood in her own home.

Her 15-year-old daughter, Frances Bean, is now getting her own taste of celebrity by jumping into the modeling world.

"Frances — she just did her first Harper's Bazaar. It is huge," Love said.

The teen posed in a dark wig as "Grease’s" bad girl Rizzo, for the March issue of the magazine, her mom not allowed anywhere in sight.

"She won't let me come to the set! Nobody mom is cool at 50," Love said.

Damon Albarn: 'the rest of Blur hate me'
Recording is a no go, but lunch was fun says singer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Blur's Damon Albarn says he believes the band's reunion fell apart because the rest of the group "hate" him and don’t want to work with the singer.

Albarn who is currently working on new projects with his Gorillaz and collaborators, spoke to The Sun about why the proposed reunion did not happen.

"I had dinner with the guys recently and it was laugh but there’s no way they want to work with me again – they all hate me," he said. "A reunion is not going to happen."

He also said the rest of the group weren’t as committed as him, saying: "Alex(James, bassist) is writing books and making cheese and Dave (Rowntree, drummer) is moving into politics. I’ve always said if you want to be a musician you have to dedicate yourself to it and do it every day."

The singer, possibly having a dig at other big name bands who have reunited over the past year, added that he was not too upset the reunion did not take place, saying: "The only reason people would do it is for the money - but I don’t need the money."

“Zac moans about his relationship all the time. He thinks about being single but is afraid of the repercussions.”

Long-ass but awesome QT interview

From the UK magazine Sight & Sound:

Nick James: So how's it going?

Quentin Tarantino: I was feeling a little slighted by Sight & Sound because I realised that I hadn't done an interview. But then you guys came out with this stuff [the Grindhouse cover story, June 2007] really, really early.

We used to reach you through your PR agency and that ended. So I think we lost our contact.

That makes sense, but now it's re-established.

Pamela Anderson to perform in nudie show

PARIS (Reuters) - Former "Baywatch" star and Playboy model Pamela Anderson takes to the stage in one of France's most famous nude revues this month, when she performs for two nights at the Crazy Horse in Paris.

Anderson, who has recently been performing in a magic show in Las Vegas, follows Arielle Dombasle, an actress and wife of one of France's leading intellectuals, in appearing at the Crazy Horse, a fixture in Paris night life for half a century.

"A special number will be created for Pamela Anderson, a striptease on a Harley Davidson," the Crazy Horse said.

Anderson will perform four shows on February 13-14.

Dunst dismisses breakdown rumours

Hollywood star Kirsten Dunst has laughed off fears she's on the verge of a breakdown after reports surfaced of her alleged "erratic" behaviour at the Sundance Film Festival last week.

The Spider-Man 3 actress was said to have made a fleeting appearance at one of the Utah festival's recent events, where sources claim she was acting oddly, prompting friends of the 25-year-old to apologise to fellow partygoers.

According to the New York Post's gossip column PageSix, the pals said: "Kirsten is not in a good place right now."

But a spokesperson for Dunst insists, "Kirsten is fine."

Beck album released with incorrect lyrics

Rocker Beck has disappointed fans - after the deluxe re-release of his 1996 break-out album Odelay was found to contain inaccurate lyrics in the accompanying booklet.

The CD insert features Odelay lyrics taken from the internet - which were later found to be wrong.

However, the reissue, which features rare and unreleased tracks, will contain accurate lyrics in future pressings - and fans who purchased erroneous printings will be able to exchange them for corrected versions.

The singer's publicist tells MTV.com, "The first pressing of the recent Odelay (reissue) was found to have gone out with unproofed lyrics that were taken from a lyrics Web site as place holders for layout purposes.

"Beck apologizes for this unfortunate oversight and is making arrangements for the corrected lyrics to be available gratis via Beck.com. Subsequent pressings of the Odelay (reissue) will also include the corrected lyrics."

Fashion Insurgency -- Look Who's having The Last Laugh

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

RADAR'S FASHION WORLD: Who's more influential in today's fashion world: Vogue or Us Weekly? Well, it depends on who's answering. Radar — you remember, that monthly magazine that has sometimes been unfavorably compared to Spy — has just come out with its Fashion Influence List and, not surprisingly, goes the celeb tabloid route. It ranks "The Hills" star Lauren Conrad as the industry's top trendsetter, puts celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe at number seven and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour at 17th. While some might view Radar's fashion-themed issue as a way to create buzz in advance of New York Fashion Week (it didn't gain that much advertising — the issue is a slim 90 pages), the title's editor, Maer Roshan insisted the list is completely valid. "It'd be undeniable that today's mass market has changed the balance of power in the fashion community," said Roshan. "A picture in Us Weekly of an outfit on a celebrity will gain them much more traction than a folio in Vogue, and that's saying a lot. It's a new celebrity culture that has affected even high fashion, and fashion has had to adjust to it." So we guess Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren will next be getting their inspirations from the tiny tube.

Vanessa Hudgens: "Everyone Is Really Fake & Everything You See Is Fake." (like Tisdale's nose)

High School Musical hottie Vanessa Hudgens was featured in the March issue of Australian magazine, Girlfriend. Here are the the most interesting excerpts from the interview. Baby V's feelings on people being interested in her personal life:

"It's weird because besides the fact that I'm on TV, I still feel like the same person I've always been. I still look up to Drew Barrymore, and the fact that kids look up to me the same way is just insane. It just doesn't sink in to me. Maybe in a few years time it will but for now I'm just floating around on cloud nine having a blast.

On what keeps her grounded:

"I think every now and then you kind of get sucked into all of the fakeness. Everyone is really fake and everything you see is fake and every now and then you'll want to just go shopping every single day. But I think what keeps me grounded is realizing how truly lucky I am. Anybody could have been picked for the role of Gabriella and the fact that it was is that changed my life."

On something she'd like fans to know about her:

"It's horrible, but I'm the pickiest eater, I know. And even though I might seem like a girly-girl, I'm totally outdoorsy. I love going camping. I love nature and stuff."

If another actress were to play you in a movie:

"Oh my god, I don't know. I would probably go find some Filipino chick. Some unknown."

 On doing something completely different from High School Musical:

"Oh, I don't know if I'd say completely different. I don't want to go off and shock and everybody. I'd like to do something different, of course, just cos I don't want to keep playing the same role. I like a challenge."

"The Real Ryan" - Daily Nexus

Article from UCSB's Daily Nexus about Ryan Gosling at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.

By Cassie McGrath

Published Thursday, January 31, 2008

It is a scientific fact that the astonishingly talented actor Ryan Gosling causes one of two reactions in females: He either renders them speechless or makes them shriek uncontrollably. Waiting in the press line outside of the Lobero Theatre on Tuesday night, a gaggle of females with “The Notebook” in hand wailed “Ryan!” much to the chagrin of reporters, myself included. At merely 27, Ryan Gosling, the recipient of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s inaugural Independent Award, has accomplished much more than mere heartthrob status. But when I was confronted by Mr. Gosling himself, smiling a foot away from me in the press line, my mind drew a blank. With deep-set blue eyes, Gosling bears no resemblance to the often profoundly troubled characters he plays. He raised his eyebrows, awaiting my question, and I blurted, “Which presidential candidate do you support?” He squinted, looked confused, and said, “I don’t know.” And that was that.

50 Cent Makes Paris Cry!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's her party and she'll cry if she wants to.

During his performance at the Paris Hilton-hosted pre-Super Bowl party for 944 magazine last night, 50 Cent gave a shout out to Paris, who then started singing in the front row.

When the princess decided to get onstage and dance, the hip-hopper quickly instructed her to "Get the f**k off the stage." She started to cry and tried to plead with the party's production staff to let her dance, whining, "But it's my party!"

Her entourage swarmed the photogs so they couldn't document the embarrassing belittlement but PageSix.com was there.

Earlier in the evening Paris was in good spirits, telling us that while she's "rooting for both teams" and is a football fan because "my grandfather used to own the Chargers," she won't be watching Sunday's big game. "Um... I'll TiVo it," she claimed.

While Paris was crying, Terrell Owens was having a grand ol' time singing along to every 50 Cent song and jumping and dancing in front of the stage. Throngs of girls were screaming "T.O.! T.O.!" at him from behind the VIP lines all night so when the Kim Kardashian's security tried to block him from the VIP area, the gaggle of fans started shouting "But he's T.O.!" and "But that's Terrell Owens! You can't do that!" Soon Kim & Co.'s vision of VIP grandeur was squashed by the presence of actual celebs and sports stars.

Even Kim Kardashian's half-brother, Brody Jenner, couldn't get into the VIP section at first. His angry publicist started running through the exclusive lounge screaming, "Brody can't get in! Brody can't get in!"

Others in attendance at the party in Scottsdale, Ariz., were Dennis Rodman, Snoop Dogg, Donovan McNabb, Ludacris, Mekhi Phifer and Ne-Yo.

Eva Mendes in Rehab

TMZ has learned Eva Mendes is in Utah battling a substance abuse problem.

We're told the "Ghost Rider" star is at the famous Cirque Lodge, near Sundance. The Lodge, which treated Lindsay Lohan and other stars, is one of the most respected treatment facilities in the country.

Eva has been at Cirque for several weeks.

TMZ contacted her rep, who did not return multiple calls for comment.


From US Weekly:

Eva Mendes has checked into rehab, her rep tells Usmagazine.com.

"Eva has been working hard for the past year and made a positive decision to take some much-needed time off to proactively attend to some personal issues that, while not critical, she felt deserved some outside professional support," her rep tells Us in a statement.

"Out of respect for Eva’s privacy, we do not wish to discuss further details."

TMZ.com first reported that Mendes, 33, is battling a substance abuse problem and has been staying at Utah's Cirque Lodge — where both Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen were treated — "for several weeks."


Sheryl Crow on Britney, Lance and her new album

Sheryl Crow has left Santa Monica Boulevard with her new CD, "Detours." The singer—and new mom—spoke to Jac Chebatoris:

Congratulations on the new baby, new record — and surviving cancer. How are you doing?
I am fantastic. In fact, can you hang on a second? I'm going to move because my son's in here and he wants to play. [Baby noise] Sorry about that.

How old is he?
Nine months, and he's trying so hard to walk. He's crawling at, like, 90 miles an hour, pulling up on everything. The madness begins!

How is writing with him around?
It's interesting that you can go out and talk about the environment with college kids, but until you have a kid and you're really emotionally invested in what kind of planet you're leaving for your kid, you don't realize the sense of urgency that you'll feel.

Do you feel a responsibility as an artist to get these issues out there in your songs?
I don't feel a responsibility to write about it—I feel an urgency. It's a really compelling time, and it would feel really wasteful to not talk about the things that are right in front of me. The fact that we're not all out in the streets and trying to incite change is indicative of just how numbed out we are.

As a mom, can you even imagine what Britney is going through?
The only way for paparazzi to stop chasing people around is to not buy the magazines. I would strongly encourage anyone who's interested in that kind of stuff to not watch because every moment you spend rejoicing or distracting yourself with that is a moment that you can't get back in your life. It's fast food and it's not good for us.

You've been a tabloid target yourself.
I was never top-shelf celebrity. I was never chased by paparazzi until my lowest point—when my public relationship [with Lance Armstrong] fell apart and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. What's that say?

Is the song "Diamond Ring" alluding to Lance?
That song is specifically about my relationship with diamond rings. Not to embarrass myself, but I've been engaged more than once.

Kylie Minogue’s new video for the single 'Wow' has been banned by television watchdogs.

The promo, which features the singer pole dancing with aliens, is now being re-edited before it can be shown.

Clips of the video have appeared online, on sites like YouTube, but the star's record label EMI has had them taken down because of copyright issues.

The single, the second to be lifted from the 'X' album, is out on February 18.

Upset Actors Let 'ET/Insider' Know That Running Heath Ledger Video Could Lead To Immediate Red Carpet Embargos

According to ABCNews.com, a coalition of arm-twisting publicists and sympathetic, outraged actors including Natalie Portman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Josh Brolin and Ellen Page were behind a campaign that persuaded ET and The Insider not to air their $200,000 video revealing that Heath Ledger stood in the same Chateau Marmont bungalow as some cocaine following the 2006 SAG Awards.

Exerting pressure by calling the producers of the two CBS Paramount programs, Portman and company were successful in convincing them to think long and hard before airing the footage; apparently, their not-so-veiled threats to never again allow Cojo and a camera crew to accompany them to their future pedicures or Robertson Blvd shopping sprees proved too potentially crippling to their fluff-segment interests to ignore, resulting in yesterday's unexpected announcement that the shows had suddenly discovered a newfound concern for how the video might affect Ledger's grieving family.


Honestly the video is boring and stupid.  I'm sure ET would find a way to edit it to make it look nasty for Heath though, especially considering it wasn't worth anything years ago, and now it suddenly is.

Jury still deliberating in Wesley Snipes tax trial

OCALA - Jurors continued deliberating this morning in the federal tax evasion case of Orlando-born actor Wesley Snipes.

Shortly before noon, jurors took a lunch break. The jury has been out since late Tuesday considering the alleged tax fraud and seven other related charges filed against Snipes by federal authorities.

As for 45-year-old Snipes, who is accused of failing to pay income taxes on $38 million he earned from films and investments from 1994 to 2004, he spent about 2-1/2 hours in the federal courthouse today before waiving his right to be in the courtroom when jurors ask questions. Snipes said he only wants to be in the courtroom when jurors return with a verdict.

The star of films such as the Blade vampire series and Passenger 57 faces up to 16 years in prison if convicted.

Britney Spears' parents, Lynne and Jamie, spent the entire day with their daughter following an early morning intervention Thursday.

They arrived at UCLA Medical Center around 11 a.m. and left in separate vehicles around 8:35 p.m. shortly before visiting hours ended at 9 p.m.

The pop star got another visit that day: her pal Sam Lutfi.

He showed up around 4:10 p.m.

He briefly left at 7:42 p.m.

Though a source close to Lynne tells Us that Lutfi "had no contact with Britney," Lutfi told Usmagazine as he left the hospital, "Britney is doing good. She is fine. She is awake."

Lutfi returned around 8:03 p.m. with a "Double-Double" combo (a double cheeseburger, fries and a drink) from In-N-Out Burger, which he said the singer had requested.

He left at 8:14 p.m. When asked by Us if he was worried about Spears, he replied, "I think we all are."

Click here to see the events that led up to Spears' latest hospitalization.


Update regarding the 1:30 PT court meeting:

If you're like most of us here at X17, your reaction to the news of Lynne and Jamie Spears seeking conservatorship over their daughter Britney was basically "Huh?"

Well, we've just spoken with legal analyst Royal Oakes about just what conservatorship might mean for the pop princess -

Oakes explained that basically, conservatorship suits involve a party - usually the parents - suing for the legal power to take responsibility for someone else's medical care and financial holdings.

Conservatorship, however, can only be invoked when the individual in question is proven to be a danger to themselves or others.

In Britney's case, Oakes opined that her recent behavior behind the wheel would probably be cited as the principle evidence of Britney being a danger to herself.

By way of example, Oakes brought up a similar suit brought against former Beach Boy Brian Wilson by his brother Carl in the early 1990s after allegations were raised that Brian's controversial therapist Eugene Landy had tricked the singer into making him the main beneficiary of his will.

Oakes was also quick to point out that Britney does have the legal right to fight the order, although he made sure to point out that she'd need to present "medical evidence" to do so.

Apparently, it's pretty common for people to fight conservatorship suits, although Mr. Oakes presented the possibility that Britney might instead take her parents' actions as an opportunity to earnestly seek treatment.

Two people who won't be able to fight the suit, however, are Sam Lufti and Adnan Ghalib!

Mr. Oakes made it explicit that, in cases of conservatorship, "friend" figures like Sam and Adnan have no legal recourse. He did, however, point out that Sam and Adnan could be called as witnesses, where they'd be able to offer evidence supporting the claims of Britney being capable of looking after her own affairs.

So have we seen the last of Adnan and/or Sam? Guess that's up to the courts to decide - we'll keep you posted on what they say!

Blade is going to jail, y'all

Wesley Snipes has been found guilty of tax evasion failing to file tax returns.

The jury returned the verdict on the third day of deliberations. He was accused by the government of trying to beat the IRS out of millions in tax payments.

Snipes and two co-defendants were indicted in 2006 for tax fraud and conspiracy. Snipes faced six additional counts of willful failure to file a tax return from 1999 to 2004, a period in which he signed two contracts for more than 10 million dollars on sequels in the "Blade" trilogy.

The star of the "Blade" films and "White Men Can't Jump" is among the most famous targets of an IRS criminal investigation, and his prosecution was key for the government. The actor used tax protest arguments long rejected by courts but still continuing to find adherents. For example, Snipes said the IRS's own code meant no citizen had to pay taxes on income earned in this country, and the agency had no legal authority to collect wages anyway, because it is not a proper government entity.

EDIT: Apparently he beat the felony charges but was convicted of three misdemeanors. He faces up to 3 years in prison. He was facing up to 16.

Los Angeles, February 1, 2008 – E! News' Ryan Seacrest spoke exclusively with Lynne Spears this morning, setting the record straight on her role as a mother and her concern for a daughter in trouble.

Lynne, speaking as a worried mother, told Seacrest her only concern is for her daughter's well being and she just wants Britney to get better. Lynne told Seacrest she is doing everything she can and sees her role as mom to a child who clearly needs help.

She went on to say that she hopes people will question the reports they're hearing from the media and consider the source. She's afraid that everything going on is diverting attention from the real issue- Britney's health.

Lynne also wanted to make it clear that Britney's money has nothing to do with any of this.

this comes after Lutfi spoke with Seacrest this morning

Los Angeles, CA – February 1, 2008 – E! NEWS' Ryan Seacrest spoke exclusively with Britney Spears' closest confidante Sam Lutfi, when he called last night after leaving the star's side in the hospital, to set the record straight on his reasons for helping the pop princess, what he's getting out of it and how he truly feels about her family.

Seacrest initially asked Lutfi what was in for him and why was he fighting so hard to take care of her, to which he responded, "I feel like I have a moral obligation (to help Britney)." He went on to say that when you meet her and she cries and she begs (you) not to turn on her, he sees this little girl and wants to help. He said he has three sisters and would do the same thing for them.

However, he was incredibly critical of Spears parents saying he has no more respect for the family and that the parents are incapable of telling the truth and incapable of sympathizing. He went on to explain that her parents are more concerned about money and their own image than they are about this girl in the hospital and he will not spend anymore time trying to earn their respect.

Lutfi did clarify to Seacrest that he does not get paid by her (Britney) and he has never made money on any photo and not accepted money from the media. He said he brought her In-n-Out for dinner in the hospital Thursday night and will be back by her side Friday morning.

Earlier Thursday, a separate insider close to the Spears camp explained exclusively to E! News that "Sam has been the only one around her 24/7, he understands her and she trusts him more than anyone else. He's getting a bad rap, he's what's kept her alive. Sam wants the family to be there for Britney but he feels that they do not understand the full extent of what's going on in her life."

The insider also said that, "Britneys relationship with her mom is touch and go, while her father Jamie's relationship with Britney is on the mend but still at a distance, they both are trying to work things out."

"I love Mini Me as much as the next guy but should this guy really be driving? Call me crazy but I’m thinking that if you can’t see over the steering wheel maybe you shouldn’t have a license. And yes, if this post reeks of bitterness it’s because Mini Me owns a god damn Mercedes and I don’t."

Damon Albarn and Lily Allen duet comes to nothing
Duo's collaboration left them uninspired

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lily Allen and Damon Albarn tried to record together, but admitted the collaboration ended in failure after there was no spark between them.

According to The Sun, the duo spent a day recording together, but the sessions were unproductive.

Albarn explained: “The record label thought it would be a good idea. She came down to my studio and she said normally she would just sit around and listen to a musician and come up with some ideas. I jumped on the piano and played some mad stuff and she just looked at me – it didn’t exactly go well.”

There are no hard feelings though and Albarn added: “She’s a talented kid but it was a bad idea.”

Of course a Blur/Allen collaboration is not completely off the cards, the singer's dad Keith and Alex James are both members of band Fat Les and with the proposed Blur reunion off, he will have time on his hands.

Sam Lutfi Is Going DOWN!

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' parents are going to court - the courtroom that establishes conservatorship for people whose personal health and welfare is gravely at risk.

Jamie and Lynne Spears will appear at the County courthouse in downtown L.A. Sources say both parents are extremely concerned about the welfare of their daughter and upset because Sam Lutfi is trying to call the shots on all matters Britney.

The court has the power to create a conservatorship, which would allow both Jamie and Lynne to make medical decisions on behalf of Britney. The conservatorship would also allow them to control Britney's financial affairs. A family source tells us Jamie and Lynne want an independent co-conservator appointed -- someone unrelated to the family -- to avoid even an appearance they are interested in spending Britney's money. Both parents have made it clear: they believe Lutfi's influence has placed their daughter and her assets at risk.

The hearing should start at around 11:15 AM. We're in court, so stay tuned.



: Both of Britney's parents have arrived at the courthouse.

The hearing is now scheduled for 1:30 PM PT

For instance, you don't have to feed your friends, take them to the doctor or to the bathroom, or get them fixed, but when you take on the responsibility of caring for an animal, those are the basics.

Rob, Big, and Meaty have teamed up with peta2 in a hilarious new ad, "Have the Balls to Spay or Neuter Your Dog," to remind everyone to do just that. (ad's under the cut)

beatles take their music to the stars


WASHINGTON - The Beatles are about to become radio stars in a whole new way. NASA on Monday will broadcast the Beatles' song "Across the Universe" across the galaxy to Polaris, the North Star.

This first-ever beaming of a radio song by the space agency directly into deep space is nostalgia-driven. It celebrates the 40th anniversary of the song, the 45th anniversary of NASA's Deep Space Network, which communicates with its distant probes, and the 50th anniversary of NASA.

"Send my love to the aliens," Paul McCartney told NASA through a Beatles historian. "All the best, Paul."

The song, written by McCartney and John Lennon, may have a ticket to ride and will be flying at the speed of light. But it will take 431 years along a long and winding road to reach its final destination. That's because Polaris is 2.5 quadrillion miles away.

NASA loaded an MP3 of the song, just under four minutes in its original version, and will transmit it digitally at 7 p.m. EST Monday from its giant antenna in Madrid, Spain. But if you wanted to hear it on Polaris, you would need an antenna and a receiver to convert it back to music, the same way people receive satellite television.

The idea came from Martin Lewis, a Los Angeles-based Beatles historian, who then got permission from McCartney, Yoko Ono and the two companies that own the rights to Beatles' music. One of those companies, Apple, was happy to approve the idea because is "always looking for new markets," Lewis said.

Perhaps coincidentally, the song's launching comes a day before the release of the DVD of the Julie Taymor movie named after the Beatles hit.


so i didn't grow up listening to the beatles (BLASPHEMY I KNOW), and i don't know many of their songs. help plz?

"Christina and the lost art of subtlety"

My favorite blogger, Rich of fourfour recently made this video of xtina entitled "Christina and the lost art of subtlety":

"To illustrate my point, I collected her major vocal runs and edited them together, more or less in order of intensity. The video below isn't nearly as fun as the Beyoncé or Céline (or even Justin) ones. This one works better as a statement than as entertainment (that is to say it is not in the running towards becoming America's Next Top Viral Video). For many, above everything else, the four minutes below will be an endurance test. Can you hang? I mean really huh-ah-uh-ang-uh-ang-uh-angggggggggg?"

Spears' 12-police escort prompts call for paparazzi limits

Spears' 12-police escort prompts call for paparazzi limits

L.A. Councilman Dennis Zine plans to push for a measure to create a 'personal safety zone' to protect public safety.
After aggressive paparazzi forced police to escort Britney Spears to the hospital this week, Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine announced this morning that he plans to push for an ordinance that would create a minimum "personal safety zone" around individuals targeted by the media.

Zine said the estimated $25,000 it costs for police to escort Spears to the hospital was necessary to protect the public from dangers posed by the horde of celebrity photographers pursuing the pop star. He said the paparazzi was increasingly endangering celebrities and bystanders with their aggressive behavior and car pursuits.

"I don't want a repeat of what happened to Princess Diana with a celebrity in Los Angeles," he said. "We had to have 12 officers escort [Spears] to the hospital that if not for paparazzi would have been to prevent crime somewhere else."

Zine said he plans to introduce a motion that calls for the city attorney and LAPD to draft new restrictions on paparazzi, including an ordinance that would create a zone of clear space in order to protect public safety on streets, sidewalks, access points to emergency care facilities and to private businesses and homes.

"It is a major issue we have to address. We are in a celebrity town," he said. "Celebrities have a right to live in peace and freedom."

Representatives for Spears told Los Angeles Police Department officials on Monday that they believed she needed a psychiatric evaluation because of continuing erratic behavior.

After extensive discussions about alternatives, the LAPD mapped a strategy for getting her to UCLA Medical Center amid an anticipated swarm of paparazzi.

Authorities, who had responded to more than 20 calls in the last month involving Spears or the paparazzi trailing her, came up with an elaborate plan. It included many contingencies for such possibilities as paparazzi rushing into her gated home off Coldwater Canyon or mobbing her ambulance and forcing it to stop so they could shoot photos.

Early Thursday morning, the plan was executed with about two dozen police officers, a helicopter and a special team that took Spears out through a gate in an ambulance with covered windows to prevent photographers from looking inside.

Police blocked roads so she couldn't be followed. The effort, which the LAPD estimates cost $25,000, was carried out with the help of the department's Crisis Response Support Section, a unit that deals specifically with the mentally ill.

The LAPD responds to about 100 calls a day to deal with mental health incidents, said Lt. Rick Wall, who heads the unit. Of those, about 20 to 25 a day lead to involuntary commitments, Wall said.

"Most go exactly as the one last night, without the 200 paparazzi," he said. "We get calls from family members daily who are worried about their loved ones being a danger to themselves or others."

Police officials defended the cost of the operation, saying that aggressive paparazzi required numerous police officers to avoid a traffic accident that could have caused harm to the public or Spears.

LAPD Deputy Chief Michel Moore said it was "a shame" that scarce police resources had to be diverted from "public safety needs such as violent crime, drunken driving or responding to the ongoing stream of 911 calls."

But he said the department "had no choice but to ensure that we appropriately dealt with this incident."

Spears' hospitalization came under Section 5150 of California's Welfare and Institutions Code, which greatly restricts the ability of government officials to hospitalize people against their wills, but allows a person to be held for 72 hours.

If Spears won't consent to additional treatment, authorities can petition to have her held an additional 14 days. Among advocates for the mentally ill, some expressed hope that Spears' hospitalization could help remove the stigma from involuntary hospitalization for mental illness -- easing what is often a wrenching decision for families.

Despite Spears' celebrity, the decision to have her committed involved elements that are typical for many mental health cases in California, said Randall Hagar, head of governmental affairs for the California Psychiatric Assn. Cases typically involve a family desperate for treatment for a loved one, a patient who appears functional one moment and severely ill the next, and an imperfect legal system struggling to mediate it all, he said.

"Every family will tell you how much they fail before they can finally get a hospitalization," Hagar said.

State Sen. Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), a leading authority on mental health law, said he hoped the attention generated by Spears' case could help increase public understanding of the issues involved in commitments.

Uwe Boll Attacks Gamers, Internet Critics

Apparently Uwe Boll has had his feelings hurt by gamers in the past, and now that his latest flop has gamers and the general population both laughing their fool heads off at him, he has decided to strike back with his only weapon - his words. Poor Uwe.Greg Gutfeld of Fox News recently interviewed Boll on the program “Red Eye” and during this little tête-à-tête, Boll decided to try and get a dig in at gamers who bash him over the Internet.

You know what I'd personally love to see? All video gamers from every corner of the world all get together to torture, flog and publicly humiliate Uwe Boll and we film it. The movie will be 12 hours long and there'll be breaks every 2 hours to go to the bathroom and get food.

Steve Zahn Talks About "Strange Wilderness"... briefly.

‘Strange Wilderness’ star Steve Zahn gets serious about his comedy
(Minneapolis) Star Tribune

Steve Zahn’s affable, stammery charm has earned him an enviable track record in comedy films, but he has also blossomed into a fine serious actor.

He juggles work in weighty films such as the journalism exposé “Shattered Glass” and Werner Herzog’s Vietnam prisoner of war drama “Rescue Dawn” with upbeat fare like “Happy, Texas” and “Strange Wilderness,” opening today.

Zahn, long a sidekick, performs a rare full-fledged leading role as a hapless nature-show host whose crew includes Jonah Hill (“Superbad”) and Justin Long (“Live Free or Die Hard”). The stoner cameraman and the lazy gofer are “the kinds of parts I would have played when I was their age,” he said. Playing the goofy burnout now at age 40 would be “sad. Tragic!”

“The parts change as I get older. The longevity is the important thing, making good choices,” he said. “Every job’s a challenge to get, I’ll be honest with you. I don’t have the luxury of saying, ‘These are the next 12 things.’ ”

Zahn, a two-time Minnesota state speech champion, stumbled into acting after a period of drift following high school graduation. He crashed the auditions for a local production of Neil Simon’s “Biloxi Blues,” got the job, and spent eight months of 1987 onstage.

“It was crazy for my first gig,” he recalled. “My job before that was in a machine shop, and here I was pretending every night and getting paid.”

His early notices were positive enough, and his co-stars encouraging enough, to persuade him to try the East Coast. After years of eating ramen noodles off-Broadway, where he formed a small theater company with Ethan Hawke, Zahn lit out for Hollywood.

“I just went with it, staying as naive as I was, and it worked for me,” he recalled. Ben Stiller cast Zahn as a slacker in “Reality Bites,” Tom Hanks cast him as a wisecracking guitarist in Hanks’ writing/directing debut “That Thing You Do!” and his comic persona was more or less established.

“I gravitate to ensemble comedy,” Zahn said. “That makes it easier. There’s less pressure!”

He read the script of “Strange Wilderness” in a Hanoi hotel room shortly after completing “Rescue Dawn,” recovering from the drastic dieting and exposure to the elements that he endured to play an emaciated POW.

“Wilderness,” from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, weaves clips from old shows like “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” into the story of a failing outdoors show’s search for Bigfoot. The idea tickled him like no screenplay he’d seen in years.

“These little excerpts are during the movie,” Zahn said. “It’s hysterical. You’re paying $7 to see it and then you’re watching, like, seals.” Director Fred Wolf and his co-writer Peter Gaulke are “Saturday Night Live” veterans “from the era when Sandler and (Chris) Farley were there, the good old days,” Zahn said. “Truly brilliant comedians. Comedy is so hard to do, yet they don’t get the same acclaim as the ‘Rescue Dawns.’ It’s absurd.

“I’ll always be perceived as that kind of crazy guy. But I’m 40 now, so I’ll get more parts like the coach. Or the POW. And that’s fine.”

Shit, here's my source.

lohan vs irrelevant actress

Lindsay Lohan and Keira Knightley are set to battle it out for the lead role of romantic heroine Catherine Earnshaw in a new film adaptation of Emily Bronte’s 1847 novel Wuthering Heights.

Director John Maybury says: “I certainly wouldn’t count Keira out but it’s whether or not she wants to get back into period costume, because she’s been in a few period dramas. I don’t count Lindsay Lohan out either. I really believe in the girl and she’s coming out from the other side of her well documented problems - she just needs to be treated seriously.”

Jared "The Subway Guy" Fogle has divorced the wife who stuck with him through thick and thin, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.

Elizabeth Fogle, the submarine sandwich pitchman's wife of six years, walked away with a lot of his lettuce, according to court documents obtained by The ENQUIRER.

Elizabeth received more than $230,000 from Jared Fogle Inc., the company Jared set up for his personal appearances.

She'll also get 60 percent of the proceeds from Jared's deal with St. Martin's Press, which published his life story.

Jared's father, a doctor, introduced his son to Elizabeth, a nurse, while Jared was in the midst of losing weight off of his 425-pound frame. He was a student at Indiana University — and they hit it off right away.

Jared lost 245 pounds in a year after developing his own Subway sandwich diet, consisting of a 6-inch turkey sub sandwich for lunch and a foot-long veggie sub for dinner.

Subway advertising executives heard about his weight-loss story after he was featured in an article in his college newspaper.

The restaurant chain began featuring him in commercials in January of 2000, and Jared became suddenly famous. Countless television commercials later, Jared is still cashing in on his notoriety, but becoming an overnight celebrity gave him a big head and caused trouble at home, according to a source close to the couple.

"He loves being a celebrity, but I think Jared's become too controlling and seems to have a bit of a mean streak in him," said the insider.

As his marriage to Elizabeth fell apart, their arguments became public.

Are Sam and Britney related? Because they're both crazy as shit.

Sam talks to US Weekly about Britney's crazy parents.

Britney Spears' pal Sam Lutfi says the singer's mental problems stem from her parents, Lynne and Jamie.

"Oh boy, her family is crazy!" Lutfi told Usmagazine.com in a telephone interview Thursday
, the same day the singer was taken to UCLA Medical Center. On Friday, Spears' parents hit L.A. Superior Court to seek to control their daughter's medical treatments.

"It's funny because that's what the doctors say when they meet the family," he added. "They always come back and say, 'You know, [her problems] are inherited, right?'

"It's just so sad. It's shared equally from both of her parents."

He told Us the singer doesn't "trust anything that her family says? Not a g----n thing."

He said they have tried to stage multiple interventions and that Thursday's move was "at least their fourth" attempt.

When the singer heard Lynne had arrived Sunday night, Lutfi said Britney asked him, 'Is my mom really here?' I said, 'Yeah, she's here.' And she's like, 'Oh great, you know they're up to something.'

"They show up to the house like hillbillies, texting me," Lutfi continued. "I find out that they're outside, and they go, 'You better let me in the gate, you ass.' So I go, to Britney, 'Your parents are here, let them come in and yell at you and scream at you. If anything else goes on, I'll throw you in my car and take you out of here.' She said, 'OK, fine, baby.'

"I let them in. Instead of going to see how Britney is, they come bouncing through the doors. They scream at me, 'Why the f---k are you talking to Barbara Walters?' I swear to God that's all they were saying.

"The dad pushed me in the chest and said, 'Get the f-k out of here.'

"The dad gave up and then the mom tried to talk to her, but Lynne was like, 'I gotta get my beauty sleep, I gotta get my nails done, I gotta do my hair.' It was just so sick. We made the mom stay."

Lutfi said the singer suffers from "mixed state bipolar" and has had it for "roughly five years." (A person suffering from "mixed state bipolar" experiences symptoms of mania and depression at the same time.)

He said he has told the singer, "'Britney, do you see why people think you are crazy? Look at your mother and look at your father.'"

I don't even know where to start with this guy. But apparently only hillbillies text. That's sad, considering how many times I text-messaged him the other night. :(

Brit's Parents Get Control of Her Chedda

Britney's Estate Under Temporary Conservatorship

A Los Angeles court commissioner has placed Britney Spears and her estate under temporary conservatorship.

That means her financial assets and other holdings will be managed by a conservator - the conservators are Jamie Spears and a lawyer.

The judge did not appoint a conservator to make medical decisions on behalf of Brit because the necessary paperwork was not filed.

As for the conservatorship that was filed, it is only temporary -- until Monday.


Um... at least Sam Lufti and/or Adnan didn't get control? :\


eta, 5:54 PM EST:

Brit's Conservators Can Shut Down Sam

The conservators who were appointed to manage Britney's assets have broad authority, including changing the locks to her house and keeping out anyone they want -- we're guessin' that's Sam Lutfi.

The judge granted the conservators - Jamie Spears and a lawyer as co-conservators - have the power to hire 24-hour security at her house, access her medical records and communicate with treating physicians. They also have the power to make any decisions on her behalf, and they can revoke any contracts she may have made recently - we're guessin' that includes the new Mercedes she just bought.



eta 2, 5:55 PM EST:


Jamie and Lynne Spears are heading in to an L.A. County Courtroom to establish a conservatorship over their daughter.

We're there streaming --- live!



eta 3, 5:58 PM EST:



A judge today granted Britney Spears' parents a restraining order against Sam Lutfi. As of now, he is ordered to stay away from her.

The restraining order prohibits the person named from having any contact with Britney Spears. A court rep said no other name, other than Lutfi's, was on the order.


Nurses hated Christina Aguilera; Loved Nicole Richie

Christina Aguilera may be getting more dough for the sale of her son’s first baby photos, but it’s official, Nicole Richie is highly-favored over her fellow new mom by the staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Both twentysomethings delivered baby bundles at the Los Angeles-area hospital within twenty-four hours of one another, and while Nicole was humble and witty with hospital patients and staff, Xtina is described as a tiny tyrant. “The nurses were happy to see her go!”

“Nicole was a big hit with the nurses and the other women giving birth. She bought six other mothers having babies the same day ‘push gifts,’ including gift certificates to Target, teddy bears, balloons and a card wishing them luck. She also had all of the nurses in stitches with her wry humor.”



The success of Hannah Montana might be too much too soon for fifteen year old Miley Cyrus, according to a Star Magazine insider. The teen, who is just a few years shy of becoming a billionaire according to projections, is suffering from extreme stress during her seventy date, three-and-a-half month Best of Both Worlds concert tour, according to a tabloid report. “Miley told me she’d been under so much stress that ’sometimes I don’t want to eat, I almost pass out on stage.”

Miley’s busted butter wedges and other facial features are also sparking concern in the starlet:

“She told me she always looks fat in photos her fans take, and she thinks her legs and face ‘look all jiggly’ to fans in the front rows of her concerts. I kind of feel sorry for her, despite all her accomplishments. Already, it seems like she’s being robbed of the joy of a normal childhood.”

Michelle Williiams puts out Statement about Heath Ledger saying her heart is broken.

UPDATE 1-Michelle Williams says heart broken over Ledger
LOS ANGELES, Feb 1 (Reuters) - In her first statement since the death of her former companion Heath Ledger, actress Michelle Williams said she is suffering from a broken heart and asked for privacy for her and daughter Matilda.

"Please respect our need to grieve privately," Williams said in a statement released on Friday by Ledger's spokeswoman. "My heart is broken."

Williams, 27, and Ledger, an Australian actor, met on the set of the 2005 movie "Brokeback Mountain," fell in love and had Matilda, who is now 2 years old. They split up in September.

"I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father," Williams said in her statement.

"All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up with the best memories of him."

Ledger, 28, and Williams lived together in New York and there was speculation they planned to marry, although they never officially confirmed an engagement.

Ledger was found dead in his bed on Jan. 22 in his New York apartment with sleeping pills and prescription drugs nearby, police said. The cause of death has yet to be determined but an official with the New York Medical Examiner's office said autopsy results were due Tuesday or Wednesday.

her statement brought a lump to my throat, so sad.

I don't think Rosie is saying fuck everyone else people. I think she's saying that this especially bothers her since she knows the person. For some reason RoRo has a soft spot in her heart for Brit. I can see why though, in the clips of Brit on The Rosie ODonnell show she is adorable. But yeah..I think Ro cares about the poor people. I mean she has given over half of what she's made away to charity...so calm down folks.

Chace Crawford arrives at Old Navy’s Celebration of “New Year, New Old Navy” on Thursday at NYC’s Eyebeam Atelier (a not-for-profit arts and technology center).

And for kicks, check out the video below for some great Gossip Girl outtakes presented by the show’s cast–Chace, Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick and Taylor Momsen.

It’s hilarious during Chace and Leigthton’s make-out scene–Chace apparently likes it rough and pushes Leighton too hard against the elevator doors.

Interview: Angelique from 'Rock of Love 2'

If you were to ask any fan who the breakout star of Rock of Love 2, most would say Angelique. The buxom nicknamed Frenchie is everything you'd want in a reality show contestant. She's energy, has a great sense of humor about herself, and most importantly, she loves to get naked. Not just topless, but full frontal naked.

BuddyTV spoke to this self-professed exhibitionist who was sadly eliminated on the show's third episode. She talked about how she came to be on the show, her love of nudity, her past as a stripper and porn star, and what the future holds for her. Continue reading to listen to our interview with Angelique, and to read some of the key points she made.

Amy on drip


SINGER AMY WINEHOUSE was rushed to hospital and put on a drip as she battles to beat drugs, it was confirmed last night.

The crack-shame star, 24, was left dangerously dehydrated while going cold turkey fighting her addiction.

Amy was smuggled into the private London Clinic on Wednesday evening under a false name.

The Harley Street clinic is around the corner from Capio Nightingale hospital, where she is undergoing rehab.

A source close to the London Clinic said yesterday: “Amy was looking very pale and thin.

“She looked ropey and exhausted. Let’s hope she hasn’t taken a turn for the worse.”

Her dad Mitch has already told The Sun how she is suffering “horrific” withdrawal symptoms.

Yesterday he said: “Amy is OK. She is making progress but will be in rehab for a long time.”

Sun Doctor Carol Cooper said: “Going on a drip is a sign that things have got pretty bad.

“Crack is notoriously difficult to get off.”

Amy went into rehab after our shocking video showed her smoking crack cocaine.

Canadian content heads south

Canadian content heads south
By Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun
Published: Friday, February 01, 2008

VANCOUVER - As the American screenwriters strike threatens to drag into its fourth month, U.S. television networks are competing intensely for Canadian-made series.

NBC won a bidding war Friday for the new CTV drama series The Listener, signing a deal to show the full 13-episode first season of the show, which begins shooting in April in Toronto. The deal comes just days after CBS snapped up another CTV drama series, Flashpoint.

Flashpoint and The Listener will be the first Canadian series since Due South to air simultaneously in prime-time slots in Canada and the U.S.
Vancouver-filmed jPod is receiving some interest from American networks.

The Hollywood Reporter ran a story Friday stating that the CBC is close to making deals with U.S. networks on two of its series. CBS and ABC are bidding for The Border, and ABC Family is pursuing Sophie, according to the American trade paper.

Canadian series produced in British Columbia are also being courted. Larry Sugar and J.B. Sugar, executive producers of jPod, said Friday two American networks have inquired about the Vancouver-shot urban-life series based on the Douglas Coupland novel. The show recently moved from Tuesdays to Fridays on CBC.

"We have more than mild interest from two networks," said Larry Sugar, who declined to name them. Formal negotiations have not begun, he said.

The Guard, an adventure series shot in Squamish and airing on Global, has generated interest. Executive producer Stephen Hegyes, whose Vancouver company Brightlight Pictures co-produces the series about the Canadian Coast Guard with Halifax Film, would not comment on negotiations, but said there is significant interest south of the border.

"We've been talking not only about The Guard, but about other shows we have coming up," said Hegyes. "There's an enormous interest in Canadian drama right now, which is really exciting."

Both seasons of another B.C.-made series, CTV's Whistler, have aired on The N, a U.S. youth-oriented outlet.

Scott Henderson, media spokesman for CTV, said no decision has been made on whether Whistler will have a third season.

The Listener, produced by Toronto's Shaftesbury Films, stars Toby Logan as a young paramedic with the ability to read people's thoughts. The pilot of the series was directed by Maritimes director Clement Virgo, whose feature film Poor Boys Game opened in theatres Friday. Shaftesbury chairman and CEO Christina Jennings said NBC made its first offer for the series prior to Christmas.

"Canadian drama is clearly becoming world-class drama," said Brightlight's Hegyes. "We [in Canada] bought, and continue to buy, American drama. What's happened now is the funding, structures and tax credits that have helped support Canadian drama has created an environment where we now have drama that is exportable and is being picked up by the toughest market in the world."

Vancouver company Thunderbird Films has partnered with U.S. distributor Program Partners, which helped orchestrate the Listener deal, to get a number of Canadian series on U.S. cable outlets. These series include Intelligence, Da Vinci's Inquest, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Cold Squad, ReGenesis and Stone Undercover.

Another CTV series, the half-hour situation comedy Corner Gas, is shown in the U.S. by Superstation WGN. Shaftesbury's Life with Derek is showing in primetime on the Disney Channel.

"The Canadian product is more and more viable worldwide," said jPod's J.B. Sugar.


I hope you guys get some jPod, it's pretty awesome.

Kristin Dos Santos Gets Exclusive Scoop From Jason Bateman on Plans to Turn the Fox Comedy into a Motion Picture

Los Angeles, February 1, 2008 - "Arrested Development" fans may be in for a treat. Star Jason Bateman confirmed to E! Online's "Watch With Kristin" columnist Kristin Dos Santos today that the creative geniuses behind "Arrested Development" have put the wheels in motion toward a major motion picture of the Fox comedy. Bateman and other cast members received calls recently from Arrested producers gauging their interest in the project.

"I can confirm that a round of sniffing has started," Bateman told Dos Santos. "Any talk is targeting a post-strike situation, of course. I think, as always, that it's a question of whether the people with the money are willing to give our leader, Mitch Hurwitz, what he deserves for his participation. And I can speak for the cast when I say our fingers are crossed."

Oh noes...

Popstar Lily Allen has been dumped by Chemical Brother Ed Simons less than two weeks after she miscarried their baby.

The heartbroken singer, who had been ready to settle down and give up her partying lifestyle to concentrate on building a family, now has to deal with the break-up as well as grieving for her unborn child.

The Sun reported that Lily, 22, is devastated by his decision, after even a £3,000-per-night holiday in the Maldives could not make their relationship work.

Britney Goes Ballastic in Psych Ward


Minutes ago, Britney Spears made two calls at the UCLA Psych Ward and went crazy on the phone after learning that her dad is now the conservator of her estate.

In a heavy British accent, a ballistic Brit screamed (about her parents), "I'm so sick of all of this they can have the God Damn house and stick it up their f**king asses. Actually, no they can't."

Brit, who sounded drugged up, was furious that her dad became a conservator of her estate. She was screaming at the top of her lungs, at times impossible to understand. At one point she screamed, "Nobody's taking my house. Who is my family?"

Britney said she did not want her parents near her home and at one point said she would go to court to fight them.

She is under the impression she's getting out of the hospital tonight.



Lawyer Showdown in Britney Case

Sources tell TMZ Britney's divorce lawyers and the lawyers representing the conservatorship may collide in a "last one standing" dispute.

We know Britney's divorce team at the law firm of Trope and Trope has been dealing with newly-exiled Sam Lutfi and believes he is well-meaning. Jamie Spears, the freshly appointed co-conservator, has made it clear he dislikes the Trope firm and wants them out of Britney's life - in large part because of the firm's alliance with Sam.

Lutfi is furious at the commissioner who issued the various orders today and has been in touch with Trope and Trope numerous times this afternoon. Based on those conversations, the firm believes the orders defy Britney's wishes because she feels great ill will toward her dad.

So here's the scenario. It's possible Trope and Trope could go to court Monday at 1:30 and challenge the choice of conservator. If Jamie Spears is in it for the long hall, it's also possible one of his first orders of business will be to 86 Trope and Trope from Britney's life.

Jennifer Lopez still pregnant -- and shopping

Forget those rumors, Jennifer Lopez is still pregnant. The 38-year-old was spotted shoe shopping on Thursday, January 31st at Scoop in Greenvale, New York accompanied by little sister Linda. When her 30-minute visit was over, the mom-to-be had purchased six new pairs of shoes and was overheard saying she needed more comfortable shoes as her feet were swelling. She and husband Marc Anthony expect their baby (or babies) any day now it appears.

Meanwhile, word out of North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY, is that Jennifer and hubby Marc Anthony have had three rooms at the hospital on hold for the past two nights, and are actually expected to arrive there after midnight tonight. Good luck, kids!

Kaizers Orchestra video updates

February 18th is drawing ever so closer, and the gentlemen Kaizers can only give so much to their fans without giving it all away. As of late, they've been doing little 'episodes', each about a song on the album. Their newest is for 9mm, an 'upbeat rock song' with marimba and cowbell and a sound following Beck, Beegees, Sheryl Crow, The Kinks, and Curtis Mayfield. And of course, it's fabulous.

Celebs offer Advice to Britney

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It seems everyone has advice for breakdown diva Britney Spears these days, including those glittering examples of stable living themselves — other celebrities.

From teen phenom Miley Cyrus to rehab rocker Courtney Love, a slew of performers, politicians and religious figures, some with their own background of drug abuse or mental illness, are all here to help.

For every bizarre moment of her surreal, paparazzi-punctuated life, the 26-year-old pop star has not only gained a devoted media following, but also a fragile persona famous people love to comment on — their kids, too.

When asked by TV's "Extra" about Spears, "Crocodile Hunter" widow Terri Irwin took a cue from her daughter.

"Bindi's the one who said ... 'People who are having trouble should go in the bush with us when we do our crocodile research work' ... and if Britney and her family want to go in the bush with us, we'd love to have them."

Lindsay Lohan stepped out of the Four Seasons wearing yet another fur coat yesterday — she's clearly found her favorite way to brave the NYC cold. At least she was looking a little more her age in her cozy hat and Wayfarers.

We wonder if that big smile has anything to do with her new boyfriend of the moment. It's probably only a matter of time before they're spotted together, but let's hope she's smart enough this time to choose a boy who isn't just waiting for his chance to sell her out.

The Dears album news

After touring on the 2006 album Gang of Losers, The Dears retreated into the trackless wastes of their Canadian homeland to stare at the sky for a while. But whispers have been emerging of a new album in the works. Natalie Yanchak, who collaborates with frontman Murray Lightburn on their baby daughter, "Neptune," as well as on keyboards and vocals, posted to her blog this week about an oceanic inspiration for the new disc. She writes:

"...We’re on vacation, someplace hot and sunny...I just brushed a 2-inch cockroach off my arm..."

I'm guessing it must be the Bahamas, because that's where the Beatles went in the 1965 movie Help! Anyway:

"...I felt something on my back, but I thought it was my ponytail..."

She is still talking about the cockroach. Just a minute...here we go. Album news:

"...I fell asleep as Murray unpacked his borrowed mini-guitar and headed down to the beach with his iPod dictaphone thingy. By now it was about 1AM and he had wanted to record some deep and kind of introspective ramblings for the album intro. I’m not sure what he did - sing or talk or a bit of both - but the Atlantic Ocean will be crashing in the background. He came back much later, tired and with most of the bottle of rum gone, said: 'I really needed to do that,' before passing out."

Lightburn himself has previously described the album-to-be as "a virtual rip off of Sly and the Family Stone's Riot record" and alternately as "motown meets blues-metal." He also calls Natalie a "blog star matriarch" which is better than "po-faced git" any day, in this writer's opinion.

So the point is, I'm excited! And you would be too if you had ever heard this band! Collapse )
