I dunno who keeps telling him that he needs to throw CD release parties but I don't think it's really that necessary. I'm pretty sure that everyone who ever even slightly considered buying his new album either has already done so or has come to their senses and decided to spend their money on something more worthwhile -- like Ali Lohan's Xmas album, for example. In any regard, The Federline keeps chugging away at whatever it is he thinks he's doing. You kinda gotta wonder ... how long will it take before he finally just up and gives up? [Source]
On the Britney Spears front ... well ... she appears to be having a grand ol' time just partying it up with Paris Hilton. The pair have been hanging out pretty much every other night ever since they hooked up in Vegas last week. Most recently, Brit and Paris spent another night out together last night (pictures HERE) where Britney was seen wearing her new favorite shirt (the one she has worn 3 nights this week). I'm gonna let her go ahead and have her fun ... let her get it all out of her system ... but I really hope that Britney doesn't fall sway to this trashy party fun. She needs to stay focused on the task at hand -- reclaiming her throne of superstardom -- and not fritter away this golden opportunity to get her ass back on top of the pop charts.
Besides, Paris should stick to hanging out with Nicole Richie ... it's what she does best. I'd hate to see things sour betwixt Paris and Nicole because Britney has gotten in the way (it's interesting to note that Nicole and Britney are never seen together -- could Nicole be on Team Kevin?) ... and never did I ever think that I'd be typing these words ... what has the world come to?! Anyways, here is a cute picture of Paris and Nicole doing a little shopping together at The Grove here in West Hollywood, CA:

These two make a much better match than Paris and Britney do. Besides, shouldn't mama Brit-Brit be home with her two babies? [Source]
Speaking of celebrity mamas, Courtney Love finds herself in London, England this week doing promo for her new book (hee hee) Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love. Here are a few pictures of C. Love looking awfully happy to be at her book signing:
She looks absolutely THRILLED to be at that event. In any regard, I gotta say that I'm a bit intrigued by this autobiography. I'm sure her ghost writer did an excellent job of parlaying her sordid tales into a somewhat-comprehensible narrative. I ain't gonna lie ... I'm very curious to read about her crazy misadventures ... I might have to add this book to my reading list. [Source]
Mediatakeout.com is reporting that a feud of epic proportions is brewing between Beyonce Knowles (and everyone in her family) and Jennifer Hudson over the fact that Beyonce is seething with jealousy over all the acclaim that Jennifer is getting from their movie Dreamgirls. While I'm sure that this story has been beefed up with exaggerations to make it all the more juicy, I don't find it hard to believe, at all, that there prolly is some semblance of the truth in there somewhere:
MediaTakeOut.com has learned that Beyonce and her parents, Mathew and Tina Knowles, are furious over all the attention that Jennifer Hudson is receiving. According to a Dreamgirls insider, Beyonce's parents let Jennifer know exactly how they felt when they met at the movie's first screening. The insider explains, "Jennifer attended the screening of the movie and [acknowledged] Tina & Mathew Knowles, but they pretended not to see her ... and Mathew threw Jennifer the ugliest look." But Beyonce's father couldn't just leave it at that. Our source claims that Mathew Knowles later called up the director of the film and "let him have it." Knowles, who was upset that Beyonce was being over shadowed, is reported to have demanded that the film be re-edited. That demand was ignored by the film studio. Beyonce isn't pleased with the movie either. Our source claims that when Beyonce first saw the movie, she was so upset with the way her character was portrayed, she burst into tears. Our source explains, "this was suppoed to be Beyonce's breakout performance, but Jennifer's getting all the attention." Umm hmm ... I can totally see shizz like this going down on the movie set. OOOOH, but it gets better -- apparently the drama even played out a bit on the set of the Oprah Winfrey Show last week: The insider tells MediaTakeOut.com that when the entire cast of Dreamgirls was featured on Oprah, Beyonce let her diva-ish ways show. Here's our tipster's account of what occurred: "Backstage [at the Oprah show], Beyonce hugged/greeted everyone, but did not say a word to or even look in Jennifer's direction. Jennifer was used to Mathew (who was always on set) being shady to her, but this was the first time Beyonce expressed any dislike or discomfort toward her. Finally, Jennifer went and spoke to Beyonce, but Beyonce acted just as distant and shady as her parents did at the movie screening." Firstly, I tend to believe that Beyonce (and her father) are not happy with the buzz that Jennifer Hudson is getting. The movie is billed using Beyonce, Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy's names only -- they are supposed to be the stars, they are the ones who are supposed to win the acclaim. Then Jennifer Hudson, an American Idol loser, comes along ... opens her mouth ... and blows them all out of the water ... and that is all that anyone can talk about. I have nothing against B, I actually really like her and her music, but this movie will show the world how amazingly talented Jennifer Hudson is. She is the star of this movie and she really does deserve all the accolades. Jennifer will not immediately become a bigger star than Beyonce but this will open the door for her to give it a shot. Damn ... this shizz is so comical -- poor Beyonce. [Source, Source]
Emma Bunton, the artist formerly known as Baby Spice from the Spice Girls, is really having a problem with her biological clock ... because it seems that she's ready to have a baby of her own:
The tiny blonde reveals how turning 30 helped her to move away from her Baby Spice image -- and how she can't wait to become Mummy Spice ... With Spice pals Victoria Beckham a married mum-of-three, Mel B a mum-of-one and Geri Halliwell a new mum, Emma confesses she can’t wait to have children. She says: "I do have moments of being broody, I adore children and I know that children will be on the cards. Geri's baby Bluebell is so beautiful. I saw them the other day and Geri is so chilled out, it's lovely. And I love Mel B's daughter Phoenix, she's gorgeous." Aww, Baby Spice is growing up ... which I think is great. It's so strange to think of little pop stars having children of their own but Britney's already got Emma beat so it really shouldn't be that big of a deal. The interview goes on to say that Emma swears that there will be a Spice Girls reunion someday, altho prolly not for a couple of years. Hopefully they won't wait so long that people won't care anymore when it finally does come out. [Source]
Here are a few outtake pictures from Hilary Duff's recent photoshoot for Teen Vogue magazine:
Honestly, I can see why these pictures ended up as outtakes. I'm not really feeling the way her hair looks in these pics. The parting (in her hair) is such
OOH, am I in comedy jail now?

Gwen Stefani is on the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine and, once again, shows off her new look inside:
Eh, I'm kinda bored with the whole thing already and the album isn't even out yet. Gwen is already talking about how she will not be releasing a third solo album after this second one because she's anxious to make music with No Doubt again: GWEN STEFANI wants to put her solo career on hold next year and resume her role as the frontwoman of NO DOUBT. The platinum blonde singer, who left the ska outfit after the release of their 2001 hit album ROCK STEADY, is tired of working alone. She said: "I don't think I will make another solo album. I can't predict anything, but I don't plan on making one of these solo dance project records. I definitely feel myself going back to No Doubt after this to do a new album." I'm sure the ND boys are pleased to hear this. [Source]

First off, I've been meaning to blog about Robot Chicken forever now ... it's seriously some of the funniest shizz on TV right now. If you don't know what it is, watch a couple of 10 min. episodes on YouTube and you'll see what you're missing. Adriana and I pretty much spent the whole night laughing our asses off (find the ep that features the Golden Girls/Sex and the City spoof -- BRILLS!) ... it was actually pretty damn fun.
I'm not sure what's going on today ... maybe something, prolly nothing ... we'll see. I'm in full-on reading mode right now so I'll prolly do some of that. I hope y'all are having a great weekend. I am out.
