Globe Trotting

Welp ... it looks like Britney Spears' crusade to hit every single hot spot and not spot in the greater Los Angeles area rolls on. She's been seen pretty much everywhere over the past few days ... doing some cd shopping (where she purchased a copy of her own cd), going to house parties (good news: with panties, bad news: without a bra) and yes even showing up to do some work in the recording studio. Eh, as long as she keeps her clothes on, I'm good. Last night, Britney and her cavalcade of hangers-on paid a little visit to the burlesque club Forty Deuce on Melrose Ave. to take in an evening of saucy entertainment. Pink reader Jennifer Chan was also at Forty Deuce last night and sends in one of her personal pictures to share:

In fact, Britney was so fully covered last night that the only parts of her body that were exposed were her hands and her head -- good girl, Brit! Inside the club was another matter ... for the second act of the show (there are 2 performances each night), Britney stripped off some of her clothes and put on a feather boa. Apparently, the people in the club thought that she might take to the stage for a little performance of her own but she didn't ... she just chilled with her backup dancers and had a great time. She is sooo random ... who knows where she'll show up next. My friends and I are planning a trip to Tiger Heat tonight, maybe she'll show up as well. [Source]

While Brit was whooping it up with the strippers, Kevin Federline took his kids to Disneyland to partake in the Xmas festivities that are going on this month. Yeah, suddenly K-Fed has all this time to hang out with his children ... isn't that nice?

I don't wanna question K-Fed's devotion to his children or anything like that ... but how come he never hung out them while he was in Britney's good graces? Sure, they did the occasional birthday party but you never really ever saw him with his kids. Here's hoping that the idiot finally realizes what's important in his life and he remains a constant in his children's lives. Trips to Disneyland are fun but hopefully he'll be around for the regular day to day stuff as well ... I mean, what else has he got going on? [Source]

Rosario Dawson, Jessica Biel and Matthew Perry were up at the crack of dawn to announce the nominees for the 2007 Golden Globe Awards. Babel scored 7 nominations, the most this year, and my fave movie of the year Dreamgirls ended up with 5 nominations:

Beyonce was nominated for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy, Jennifer Hudson was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Eddie Murphy was nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Dreamgirls itself was nominated for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy and the song Listen was nominated for Best Original Song).

Some of my other faves where nominated for awards -- 24 and Heroes for Best Series, Drama, Kiefer Sutherland for Best Actor, Drama and Borat and The Devil Wears Prada both for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy. Click HERE to see the full list of 2007 Golden Globe nominations. Alls I know is that Jennifer Hudson better win, the end. [Source, Source]

Sylvester Stallone, looking a lot worse for the wear, was on hand for the premiere of the final installment of the Rocky series (God, I hope it's the last installment of the Rocky sereis) here in Hollywood last night. Here are a few photos from the red carpet at the Rocky Balboa (ie. Rocky 65) premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theater:

Because Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia stars in Rocky Balboa as Rocky, Jr. he and a couple of his Heroes cast mates (and their families) attended last night's premiere. Natalie Maines, her husband Adrian Pasdar and their son along with Hayden Panettiere all attended. Natalie and Hayden were lookin' super hot. Three Six Mafia were there as well ... but they're just pimps so I had to post them as well. I dunno if this movie is for me. I really liked Rockys I-IV but then again, I was still a kid when those movies came out. I'm not sure how interested I am in watching a geriatric Rocky getting his butt kicked by a younger, stronger boxer only to have him rally in the end and probably win his final match. Eh ... I'll wait for it to air on Spike TV. [Source]

It's my understanding that Sly is also working on another Rambo movie ... is he really that hard up for money?

Madonna was a surprise presenter at the British Comedy Awards last night in London but she wasn't doing much laughing after host Jonathan Ross made joke about her adopted "lovely black baby" from Africa. Here are a few caps from her appearance, where she presented an award to Sacha Baron Cohen:

The Like A Prayer singer made a surprise appearance at the gong-fest, held at London's Television Centre, to present the special Ronnie Barker award to Borat creator Sacha Baron Cohen. But what she hadn't bargained for was a pasting from the loose-tongued host. The television funnyman, who is hardly known for his subtlety, joked about 47-year-old Madge's recent adoption of a baby from Malawi. Shortly before she gave the award to Ali G impersonator Cohen, Ross said to her: "Congratulations on your little lovely black baby, David. Are you stopping there, or getting more? When I went to Africa all I got was a wallet." To which a less-than-amused Madonna replied: "You might go home with a black eye." Immediately the US superstar, who is married to British film director Guy Ritchie, went from being all smiles to having the hump - and she walked out before the after-party had even begun. I get that it was a joke but I also get why Madonna was not amused. Likening her child to a wallet was prolly a little bit insensitive. I don't really blame her for not sticking around afterwards but she kinda had to know that someone was gonna poke fun at her during the awards show ... I'm surprised Sacha Baron Cohen wasn't the one who make the crack. [Source]

A whole slew of Hollywood "It" Girls, most of whom where lookin' hit as hell, were on hand for a party thrown by Dolce & Gabanna and Penelope Cruz to announce their joint auction to raise money for The Art of Elysium children's charity ... here are the pics:

Blah ... I'm kinda getting a wee bit bored with the usual suspects. Not even Lindsay Lohan's new blue/green contacts are exciting enough to illicit a jovial reaction. Maybe it's finally time to put this herd out to pasture and usher in a new gaggle of Hollywood "It" Girls? Am I just losing my mind? [Source]

One current Hollywood "It" Girl who was not at the D&G party was Nicole Richie ... she has been trying to keep under wraps since she was arrested for DUI earlier this week ...

... literally by keeping under wraps. She did manage to come out from under her blanket to hang out on the set of the new Good Charlotte video that is taping this week ... make of that what you will. [Source]

Melissa Etheridge and her partner Tammy have unveiled photos of their newborn twins Miller Steven and Johnnie Rose in order to circumvent the need by the paparazzi to take their own photos. Here are a couple pictures of the happy family:

They obvs look very happy ... and I'm stunned at how much Tammy looks like Hilary Duff, especially in the second picture. Tammy explains in great detail on her blog what the twins' names signify. It's actually a very great read (thanks for the head's up Danielle) and shows just how much thought should go into the naming of a child (cuz you know that it didn't take much for Gwyneth to come up with the name Apple). [Source]

Heidi Klum and Seal are also showing off their new baby ... here is a cute picture from People magazine of proud mommy and daddy with little Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo:

They look so happy! Little Johan looks just like Henry did when he was born. It's cute that he has more hair than his father does. Congrats again to the Klum-Samuels on their new baby ... keep 'em coming. [Source]

Pink reader Lia stumbled upon the Facebook profile of Kenzie Dalton's little sister and sends in these pictures of the Dalton family posing with Chad Michael Murray:

Isn't it weird how out of place Chad looks posing with all of these children? It's definitely weird that one of these children is actually his fiancee. I'm just ... mesmerized at how Village of the Damned-esque these people look. It's actually kinda creepy. [thanks Lia]

Here is your first look at the group of interns who are featured in the new MTV reality show I'm With Rolling Stone which will debut on January 7th. They look like like any ol' cast of The Real World except ... er, yeah that's all I got cuz they look exactly like any ol' cast of The Real World:

I wonder if this show will be anything like the other magazine reality show that MTV did, Miss Seventeen. Actually, I hope it's not like Miss Seventeen because that show was a bit too saccharine even for me. I'm sure (well, I'm hoping) a group of kids working at Rolling Stone magazine will prove a bit more interesting ... but I guess we'll have to wait and see. Click HERE to read profiles on all the interns at the show's the official blog. [Source]

Here are a few photos of Brangelina chillin' in Cambodia shot for their new People magazine photoshoot:

Brad in that wrap is amazing! He really fits in with the natives, don't you think? [Source]

Here are a few pictures from Angelina Jolie's photospread in the January issue of Vogue magazine:

The pictures are so dramatic ... even that last one that looks like a Stetson cologne ad. [Source]

And finally, Marc Malkin is reporting that Christina Ricci's love of fur has cost her the love of many of her fans. Apparently, the webmaster of the #1 Christina Ricci fansite has shut down the site in protest over Christina's fur fetish:

The owner of Ricci's biggest fansite has decided to shut down, because the object of his affection wears fur. The site included more than 900 photos and info on anything and everything you ever wanted to know about the 26-year-old starlet, but now it's just one page that announces in big bold letters, "Offline due to fur usage." "I've had this Christina Ricci fan page for almost eight years (since January 1999), but I recently found out Christina doesn't appear to have a problem wearing fur," reads a note on the site, signed with the name Dodger. "Well, I do. I have a problem with people who wear fur. Conclusion: I have a problem with Christina. And now that problem is solved, because I don't have a Website about her anymore, so I no longer have anything to do with her" ... Dodger's tops all other fan sites when Ricci's name is plugged into any number of search engines. [Says Christina's spokesperson] "I spoke to Christina, and she said this gentleman is entitled to his own opinion, and she applauds him for sticking by his beliefs" ... Also included with Dodger's note is a link to PETA's recently announced worst-dressed list for 2006, which includes Ricci for donning a reindeer fur wrap on a recent cover of W magazine. Wow. That's a pretty bold step for a fan to take. I also commend this fan for choosing his beliefs over his fandom. I doubt she'll change her stance on fur wearing but it's awesome that this fan also chooses not to change his stance on fur wearing. [Source]

Les News:
I did a whole lotta nothing yesterday ... and it was marvelous. I finished reading Amy Tan and have moved on to an Augusten Burroughs memoir that I've yet to read. As I mentioned earlier, I think the plan for tonight is to do some dancing at Tiger Heat tonight. It's been far too long since we've gone to Tiger Heat so it should be fun.

And that is all. Lates.
