Scratch & Sniff

You know what ... Britney Spears doesn't think that you smell enough. She wants to be the person to help you out with that. First she blessed the world with her first fragrance Curious ... and then came Fantasy ... and now she bestows upon us her latest concoction -- In Control:

I can't wait to smell it! [Source]

You know what is really great for hyping the sales of a new fragrance ... good old fashioned buzz ... Britney knows that by getting her name in the news her new fragrance will fly off those Wal-Mart shelves like there is no tomorrow. Did you hear that Britney Spears was rushed to the hospital recently?

Britney Spears had to be rushed to hospital after treading on a hypodermic needle ... The pop babe - who is on holiday in Hawaii - had stepped out of her car without shoes on when she trod on the needle in a parking lot ... The panic-stricken star was taken to Hawaii State Hospital, but tests showed the needle was unused ... A source is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Britney is going to be fine. She's got a nasty cut but it's been disinfected and dressed and she's been released from hospital ... "It was more the shock of seeing the needle poking out of her foot - as you can imagine. All sorts of things race through your mind in that situation. The conclusion we would all jump to is that it was discarded by a drug user ... "Britney was distraught but brave."

You've gotta commend our dear, brave Britney. [thanks Dave]

Oh and the word on the street is that Brit Brit is seriously being considered for mother of the year:

[Britney] changed Junior's diaper in the middle of a busy restaurant. According to Britain's News of the World newspaper, one diner said, "It was disgusting. Someone else has got to eat at that table. Yuck." But then the manager noted, "It's Britney Spears. What can we do?"

MMMMMMM ... delicious. I'm gonna place my order for Britney Spears: In Control right now!

Sarah Michelle Gellar was on hand for the launch of AOL's new venture In2TV at the Museum of Television and Radio last night in Hollywood:

In2TV is a new resource where you can watch old school TV shows online for free. Get this ... you can watch full episodes of Alice, Head of the Class, Perfect Strangers and V! V people! That rules all! Oh yeah ... SMG looked great ... but yeah, old school TV shows rule! [Source]

My heart is always warmed by the kindness of strangers ... check out this really nice guy trying to help out this poor homeless-looking girl:

I am so touched. [Source]

It is my sad duty to report that Phil Collins and his wife Orianne, who were married in 1999, are splitting up ... they're dunzo, y'all:

"They have been living separately since the beginning of the year and both cite the fact that they have been growing apart for some time now and this has put too much pressure on their relationship," the statement said ... "Consequently, they have decided in the interests of their two children that it is better to separate. They are both very sad that it should come to this but have as their priority the welfare and happiness of their children and are determined to remain friends and be loving parents to them." What a bummer ... this does not bode well for the upcoming kickball season. [Source]

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a very good-looking man ... usually ... check out these pictures of the chap at the 100 Year Anniversary Celebration of Monte Blanc:

Uh, doesn't it look like he's about to strangle someone? Yikes! [Source]

Hey ... who is this mysterious woman holding hands with Vince Vaughn in Aspen, Colorado?

Wandering around Aspen, Colorado, the little and large pair were papped in full-on fingers-linked mode. Yes, yes ... but who is that mysterious woman? OH, it's Jennifer Aniston: [When] Jen spotted the cameras and tried to pretend she wasn't one of the most famous faces in the world, by covering her chin in a scarf. Bless. And she took some crafty side-steps away from Vince-y. That Aniston ... she is soooo tricky. [Source]

Pete Doherty has got himself a whole slew of problems ... unfortch I don't have the time to list them all ... how about we just check out his most recent dilemma:

These are unfortunate times for Pete Doherty ... It all started when Pete was nipping out to the chemist to pick up a few bits. He was trailed by a pesky photographer, keen to snap whatever was wrong with Pete's chin as he tried to hide it. Next he had a spot of trouble getting back to his car and had to get through some railings (did he park in a school?). Finally, to top it all off, by the time he'd Indiana Jones-d his way back to the motor, Pete discovered someone had smashed the back window. I hear he's got a little prob with the narcotics as well ... but I think that's a totally unconfirmed rumor. [Source]

Sharon Stone appeared at a photocall for her new movie Basic Instinct 2 in London, England:

You know ... with a wee little tweaking she could be the spitting image of ...

... the scary-mask dude in Natalie Portman's new movie V For Vendetta:

Hmmm ... yeah ... I think so. How insane is it that the masked man has more creases in his face than Sharon Stone has! Botox is a true gift from the gods. [Source]

Pink reader Kate was lucky enough to catch Morrissey in concert this past Monday night in Tulsa, Oklahoma of all places ... she sends in these 2 pictures:

The Mozzer then played a show in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night ... these 2 shows were, I presume, warm up shows for his SXSW gig tonight. I am so excited for Morrissey's new album. Make sure you visit his official My Space profile on March 21 to hear his new album Ringleader of the Tormentors in its entirety. [thanks Kate]

Jordan Knight and Debbie Gibson are teaming up to record a duet in the hopes that their combined star power will garner enough attention so that they can afford to buy some groceries: has video footage of this momentous event ... if any of y'all care. [Source]

US Weekly is really talking up the rumored romance betwixt Nick Lachey and Kristin Cavallari, yet again, in the new issue of their magazine:

LOL. I.Love.It. I hope they hook up just for the mere fact that I can start calling them LaCavallari ... or maybe Cavachey? [Source]

Er ... I really think that someone really needs to tell Josh Hartnett to stop getting make-up tips from Xtina Aguilera ... check out these pictures of Josh from the new issue of V Man magazine:

Someone also needs to tell him that he could use a little tweezing between those eyebrows. [Source]

Here are a few newish pictures from the new movie Superman Returns:

I love that Parker Posey is playing Kitty Kozlowski opposite Kevin Spacey's Lex Luthor. I really like that they made Ma and Pa Kent old ... and I think Brandon Routh will make a great Supes. I'm still not feelin' Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane ... but I suppose we'll see how it all turns out. [Source]

And finally ... what's better than a little game of Guess the Thong to finish out the day? Can you guess who this luscious thong belongs to? Go ahead ... lean in close and inspect the photo before you click on it to find out the answer:

Click above to see who this thong belongs to

Remember, I <3 all y'all :) XO [Source]

The News:
Yesterday evening I made the trek all the way out to Ann Arbor to meet up with Tracey, Kristy and my precious little Zakiya. Tracey wanted my advice on a new pair of glasses so we picked a pair out for her ... but the real star of the whole event was baby Z tryin' out my new sunglasses:

Hello ... will you look at all of those teeth?! AND she's got 2 more coming in on the bottom ... she is just amazing! The 4 of us had a really great time just hangin' out. Today Tracey and Zakiya are flying down to Nashville to hang out with other friends of ours.

It has gotten cold around here again ... but thankfully none of that evil white stuff has returned ... I'm just crossing my fingers that it won't return again for the rest of the season.

That is all, Lates!
