Britney Spears has touched down in Las Vegas where she met up with her former manager and current savior Larry Rudolph. I would imagine that she is in town to get some work done on her new album but I wouldn't be surprised if Miss Spears spent a little time gettin' down with her bad self and doing a little partying. Here are a couple pictures of Britney and Larry chillin in Sin City:

Brit Brit is rockin' a new weave so you know she's gettin' down to bizznazz. It is so gratifying seeing her out again WITHOUT KEVIN trying to leech up all the attention. She has cast him aside like a dirty sock and she ain't lookin' back. It's good that she's in Vegas right now, she really deserves to just cut loose and run wild. Live it up, Britney! It's been far too long. [Source]

Welp ... the day has finally arrived ... the day of reckoning is here ... Katie Holmes' last chance to make a break for it is quickly slipping away. All eyes on on the Odescalchi Castle in Rome where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are going to be wed today (or are getting married as I type this ... I'm unsure of the time difference):

There is no going back, the deal is pretty much done ... the only thing left to do is await word that the ceremony is finished. If you are so inclined, head on over to People magazine's Tom and Katie's Wedding Blog for up-to-the-minute updates on what is going down in Italy today. [Source]

Here is a cheery picture of Katie Holmes clutching her little Suri Holmes-Cruise to her breast looking totally excited to be entering holy matrimony with her betrothed, Tom Cruise:

This picture is very reminiscent of that photo of Katie standing at the window with little Suri in a crib right next to her a few weeks after the baby was acquired born. This picture makes it look like Katie has got the worst case of cold feet imaginable ... but I fear it's too late for her to do anything but go thru with the ceremony. I think her time to flee is loooooong past. But wouldn't it be amazing if Chris Klein did scale the castle walls and bust in at the last second to spirit Katie away to freedom? Ahh ... yeah ... no, I'm sure that won't happen. Goodbye Miss Holmes ... you'll be missed. [Source]

It won't be long now ... soon TomKat will be Mr. and Mrs. Tom Cruise ...

... and then the countdown to implosion will begin. BUT, not so fast ... the New York Post is reporting that TomKat have not filed for a marriage license in Rome and their Scientology wedding will not be valid and legal without one: As the sun set yesterday on the majestic medieval castle where they plan to wed, there was no sign that Tom Cruise or his beloved bride, Katie Holmes, had applied for a civil marriage license. The couple, who are expected to hold a Scientologist wedding service at Castello Odescalchi today, now face the distinct possibility their union might be recognized only by a church that believes in aliens - and not the law. "Wedding? What wedding?" the parish priest of Bracciano, where the couple plan to wed, told the Times of London. "There has been no application for a civil marriage, let alone a religious ceremony." Fabrizio D'Agostino, a spokesman for the Church of Scientology in Rome, said the church had not been contacted by anyone about the Cruise-Holmes wedding. He said an exchange of vows with a Scientology rite is not legally recognized in Italy and would have to be preceded or followed by a civil union. Rome's mayor had given the couple until yesterday to bring the necessary papers to city hall. U.S. citizens planning to marry in Italy must present their passports, birth certificates and an affidavit that there is no impediment to their marriage. The documents need to be translated into Italian and certified. Still, the festivities continued in Rome yesterday as stars continued to touch down in the Eternal City. Could this possibly be that last SHAM! in a long line of SHAM!s that TomKat have orchestrated since the start of their relationship? Are you kidding me? Of course it can! How is it that nothing that this couple does can pass muster and that suspicion shadows everything that they do? You absolutely never know what to believe when it comes to these two ... I guess we'll just have to content ourselves with just watching the spectacle ... which is pretty much what we've been doing for so long now. [Source]

UPDATE: People magazine reports it's a done deal.

And speaking of spectacles, David and Victoria Beckham whipped up a frenzy yesterday when they arrived in Rome for the TomKat wedding ... mostly because of what they were wearing:

Who dresses Victoria Beckham? I can forgive David Beckham that horrid sweater (especially since he did me proud with that hot tux in the second pic) but Victoria looks utterly ridiculous. She really does look dressed for a wedding on Mars ... which I suppose is the appropriate thing to wear. [Source, Source]

Last night Xtina Aguiera kicked off her Back to Basics World Tour in Sheffield, England and brought her circus-like vision to her amassed fans in North England ... here are a few pictures from the opening night show:

Pink reader Michael, an OU student who is studying abroad in the UK, was lucky enough to attend last night's tour opening performance. He assures me the show is incredible, that the visuals are spectacular and that there are costume changes galore (incidentally, the costumes were designed by Roberto Cavalli). The show looks pretty hot ... the carosel horse looks like the mechanical bull that Madonna used on her Confessions Tour and the crescent moon reminds me of the moon that Kylie Minogue is using in her Showgirl Homecoming Tour. Head on over to Christina Multimedia to see many more pictures from last night's show. [Source via Source]

In other tour news, Jay-Z has embarked on a 7-city day tour, titled the Hangar Tour, where he will be performing 30-minute concerts in under 24 hours today. Blogger Arjan Timmermans, of ArjanWrites, attended Jay's first show of the day this morning at 5:30AM in Atlanta, GA and sends in these pics to share:

He writes: From Atlanta, he will travel with his posh G5 jet to Philly, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles to finish the promo blitz in Las Vegas. As part of a very unique promotion, 2 lucky winners in each city will get a chance to join the entourage and continue the "Hangar Tour" journey on Jay's private jet. It was really early in Atlanta (even for Jay-Z) but Jigga gave a fierce performance mixing old and new tracks, including "I Just Wanna Love U," "Big Pimpin'" and "Show Me What You Got" (his new single). That's pretty damn cool ... head on over to Arjan's blog to read his full report. [Source]

OY! It what seems to be an emerging trend amongst Hollywood "It" Girls (er, well not so much all Hollywood "It" Girls, more like just Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan) here we have pics of Lindsay Lohan showing off her nether parts after emerging from a club on the arm of Calum Best:

Click above to see the uncensored NSFW image

LAZY LOHAN is back at her bottom-flashing antics – after apparently losing her knickers during a night out with Super Shagger CALUM BEST. The Mean Girls star revealed her under-dressed under-carriage as she tumbled into a cab outside London club Boujis ... [S]he bottomed out as she and Love Island winner Calum headed off to continue clubbing at Kabaret. The pair returned to her hotel at 4.30am and Calum was spotted sneaking out at 3pm yesterday, almost 12 hours later. Lord ... now L. Lo is fraternizing with reality show contestants? Well, one thing is becoming evidently clear -- she can no longer be called "firecrotch". [Source, Source]
