"She's been a mother and she'll still be doing that, but she's very much into her music," said producer Jonathan "J.R." Rotem (50 Cent, Destiny's Child). Still, it's early on in the process, according to the singer's rep -- Spears said she was just writing music and "meeting with different people to work on the album" when she talked to the U.K. version of Glamour for its June cover story. But because she has a home studio, not only does she have the benefit of working "at home in my sweatpants," she also can work whenever the mood strikes her -- as can her husband, Kevin Federline, who's also working with Rotem ... But where will Britney take us? One of the singer's other collaborators, Sean Garrett (Jamie Foxx, Keyshia Cole), said that on the three tracks they did together, they tried to do "some real crazy-ass stuff that the world is going to love." Rotem translates that to mean her songs will really connect with people, and will make them say, "'Hmmm, I haven't heard Britney say things like that before." Yeah, yeah ... new music ... blah blah blah ... I'll believe it when I hear it ... I'm more interested in the new guy in these pictures. Why is he carrying Sean Preston ... and why does he look A LOT like the little kid? Am I crazy or am I just grasping (desperately) at straws? What if K-Fed isn't his father ... wouldn't that be awesome? This new guy does bear a resemblance to Sean P. -- here's hoping he's not just another Spears cousin or something like that ... but even if he is, there is still hope that he could turn out to be Sean's real father :) [Source]
Blah ... speaking of K-Fed, here are pictures of homeskillet going into and coming out of the same recording studio:
Oh look ... he's got a CD with him ... isn't that great news? I can't wait to hear what else The Federline has up his sleeve. [Source]
ATTENTION: SURVIVOR: Exile Island SPOILER ALERT WARNING
So ... another season of Survivor is finished and an all new Ultimate Survivor has been crowned. If I manage to catch Survivor from the very beginning then I usually tend to see the whole season thru. This season I watched most of the episodes mainly because I wanted to see how far Cirie would get. I'm very happy to report that she made it pretty damn far -- she got to the final four -- that's hot, y'all. Unfortch, she didn't win it all ... nor did the guy who really deserved to be named the Ultimate Survivor of Exile Island ... instead the lesser of two evils ended up winning the million bucks:
First of all, I have to say that Survivor is such a great game. No matter the season, I always find myself anxious and excited -- I can't believe that I still care. To me, Danielle was never really in the running for the big prize. I knew it would come down to either Terri and Aras. I was pretty pissed that Terri got eliminated because he truly dominated this entire game. After Terri was voted out (by the duplicitous Danielle) I no longer cared about who was going to win. If I remember correctly, Terri won the car this season -- so of course, he was set up to lose the whole game (damn that car curse). It was funny to see how much weight Aras put on since he left the island. It looks like all he's done since leaving Exile Island was eat, eat, eat. Oh well ... congrats to Aras for winning the dough ... he deserved it more than Danielle did. [Source]
Here are new pictures of Brangelina hiding out in Namibia ... I am convinced that we won't hear about Angelina's baby until well after she gives birth ... these pictures of Angelina show that she is still very much pregs so ... the Fetus Jolie-Pitt has yet to make its debut:
She is lookin' huge ... it can't be long now. Bring on the baby already -- I'm dying here! [Source]
The Cannes Film Festival gets underway in just a couple of days but the celebs are already streaming into France for the festivities. Check out these pictures of the Beckham clan arriving at the airport in Nice, France:
Aww ... ain't they such a cute family (if you overlook Victoria)? It looks like baby Cruz got left behind. Becks looks cute in his little cap ... he looks even cuter when he takes it off. [Source]
Ryan Phillippe decided to use the good weather as an excuse to take his pecs out for a stroll ... check out these great pictures of Ryan on his way to the drug store:
It looks like all of the working-out that he has been doing is really paying off. Woot! [Source]
While Ryan Phillippe is lookin' hot as usual the same cannot be said for Ryan Cabrera. Apparently, this Ryan thought it would be a good idea to dye his hair brown and indulge in a perm:
It's hard to believe that the mop on his head isn't really just a wig. Doesn't he look like a whiter Whitney Houston ... but just not as drunk. [Source]
Hilary Duff looks so happy to be home from her European adventure that she decided to celebrate by baking a cake ... here are pictures of Hilary and her best friend Taylor delivering, what looks to be, a home-made cake for a special someone:
I wonder who the cake is for? [Source]
Paris and Nicky Hilton spent some time over the weekend hanging out at their second home, the Kitson store in Beverly Hills. It looks like the Hiltons are trying out some scary new fashion looks:
Boo! Keep trying, girls ... for the love of all that is holy, get some help ... and stop spray painting your sneakers, it's very unbecoming. [Source]
Kimora Lee Simmons needs your help, y'all. Since her separation from Russell Simmons she has really jacked her need to make money:
I'm not sure if the book is any good ... or if her make-up is of quality material but I really think she would have a better chance at selling the shizz if didn't try and sell it in person. Scaring away the customers isn't really good for business. [Source]
Xtina Aguilera is gearing up for a new album release ... that means it's time to break out the big guns in order to get the promo machine in high gear ... check out a very nekkid Xtina in the new issue of GQ magazine:
For once it looks like she toned down the red lipstick ... Hurray! I have to admit that the pictures are a bit sexy altho I think the last pic (you know, the one of her bent over with her ass in the air) is a bit trashy. Why is it that her clothes tend to disappear every time she has a new album to sell? [Source]
Dannii Minogue is on the cover of the new issue of British Cosmopolitan magazine ... and while that, in and of itself, is good news the real story is all the nekkid dudes inside this magazine. Cosmopolitan is celebrating 10 years of their world-famous nude dude centrefolds:
Ah, ten sweet years of Cosmopolitan male nude centrefolds. Who wouldn't say cheers to that? The magazine is celebrating its tenth year of letting us see male celebrities in the nip with a special issue ... The stars bared all for a good cause, the Everyman campaign, which raises awareness and funds for research into male cancers. So really everyone is a winner. I whole-heartedly agree! Nekkid men should be celebrated each and every day! [Source]
Superman is this month's coverboy of the new issue of The Advocate magazine:
The magazine begs the question, How Gay is Superman? I'm not sure that I understand why the mag thinks that Superman might be gay just because he is a hero that is super hot and muscley -- who wears skin tight tights (which are not exactly spandex, but close enough) and who prances around with red boots and a spit curl. How is that gay? [Source]
Here is an early look at Amber Tamblyn in the sequel to the hit horror movie The Grudge. In The Grudge 2, Amber plays Sarah Michelle Gellar's sister who becomes exposed to the same mysterious curse that afflicted her sister:
Personally, I wasn't very scared by The Grudge (well, I wasn't scared at all actually) and I only went to see the movie because SMG was starring in it. It is my understanding that SMG has a cameo in the sequel so I'll prolly check out this movie when it comes out in October. I'm sure this movie will turn out to be just as unscary as the original ... even if they use that creepy noise again. [Source]
And finally, I have to send out lots of Birthday Love to my dear friend Andy Towle from Towleroad. Look at this hot man and tell me that he doesn't look amazing for just turning ... well ... another year older:
Andy has become a very good friend in the past year (he was with me when I met Madonna in NYC last Fall) and I want to take this opportunity to wish him a very happy birthday. You look amazing, Andy! Everyone agrees that you only get better (and hotter) with age. I hope you have an amazing birthday! XOXOXO
