She Against The Music

It would seem that there is some significant movement on Britney Spears' attempt at a musical comeback ... it is unclear what her timeline looks like -- we're only hearing that a new album is due out "this year". Britney has been photographed all over town with a CD-R in her hand ...

... these pictures are from Brit's most recent trip to Area nightclub ... and just this weekend she was videotaped blaring, what is largely believed as, new music from her new album from her car stereo ... click HERE to see and hear for yourself. It's hard to form an opinion on what little is heard but it's encouraging that she's already got stuff in demo form. [Source]

In other comeback news, a new Miami-area listing on Craig's List has put the call out for peeps who want to work with Britney in various capacities for a reality TV show being put together by Zomba Entertainment and MTV Films:

Britney Spear's New Reality Show/Contest - Casting Call

Date: 2007-01-07, 3:43AM EST

In cooperation with Zomba Films and MTV films, LCAA productions is working on a new reality contest for a major network.

Britney Spears is getting ready for a big comeback. "The last couple of years have been quite a ride for me, the media has criticized my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being," the 25-year-old pop star says. Her goal? "I want to show my fans and critics that I'm coming back this year bigger and better than ever".

Britney has agreed to open up her life again to the TV cameras. But this time, it won't be her in the spotlight Instead, it is you! Britney is looking to surround herself with a new team. Each week, a new contestant will walk and work by her side 24 hours a day, for 5 straight days. Your job will be to give her guidance, perception and help her with comeback. For this 16 week audition/interview, we are looking for 8 males and 8 females to compete for a position on Britney's new team.

"I'm thrilled about this new chapter in my life and even more excited to involve my fans in my comeback", says Britney.

Please send us a brief summary as to how you can help improve Britney's image and why you are the right candidate. Must be a US Citizen. Must have valid passport. Position open to anyone 21 years of age or older. Please DO NOT include your phone number. We will respond to your email with additional casting information once we reviewed all inquiries.

Location: Miami
Compensation: TBD
Principals only. Recruiters, please don't contact this job poster.
Please, no phone calls about this job!
Please do not contact job poster about other services, products or commercial interests.


Hmmm ... I suppose it's a great idea that she's getting help from people to aid her in her comeback and I know that I'd most deff watch this show but to do it all in front of reality TV cameras? Well, we know how her last attempt at reality TV stardom turned out. Her show Britney & Kevin: Chaotic was a total mess ... it was so bad the network that aired it, UPN, doesn't even exist anymore!

In other Spederline news, Kevin Federline has reared his head again to post a message on his official website ... he's promising us all a big surprise, y'all:

I can't hardly wait! [Source]

Jennifer Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and others were all on hand at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards last night in NYC ... here are a few photos from the event's red carpet:

Jennifer Hudson took home the award for Best Supporting Actress, Helen Mirren took the award for Best Actress, Martin Scorsese took the award for Best Director and United 93 took the award for Best Film. I have to agree that these are winners ... I love that J. Hud just keeps picking up accolade after accolade ... and I wonder if United 93 is going to make more of a showing as Awards season rolls on.

Justin Timberlake is getting ready to launch his 2007 FutureSex/LoveShow Tour this week ... here are a couple pictures of JT gettin' his rehearsal on:

The tour kicks off in San Diego, CA tonight at the iPayOne Center ... but I will get to see him in Anaheim, CA tomorrow night. My new friend Sam managed to hook me up with tickets to see tomorrow's show at the Honda Center down in the OC. I've never seen Justin Timberlake live before (tho I did see N*Sync with Sarah and Adriana at Comerica Park in Detroit a few years ago) so I'm excited to see what he's got. [Source]

Well now ... if you lose one Laguna Beach girl ... and then another Laguna Beach girl ... what is there left to do but go after yet another Laguna Beach girl. LB playboy Jason Whaler who went from dating Jessica (in season 2 of Laguna Beach) to dating Lauren LC Conrad (in season 1 of The Hills) is now dating Nikki (from season 3 of Laguna Beach) ... or at least is hooking up with her. Here are pictures of the new couple gettin' all lovey-dovey over the holidays:

You remember Nikki, right? She's the one who LOVES to party. Could it be that J. Wahl has actually found true love this time? Eh, well see ... I'm sure if it's one thing that Jason likes about high school girls is that he keeps getting older and they stay the same age. [Source]

Kate Moss and Pete Doherty have completed their holiday jaunt in Thailand and have arrived back in London together ... still unmarried:

Nice shirt stains, Petey. A wedding can't be too far off now ... can it? [Source]

Speaking of stains, here are a couple pictures of Johnny Depp as he emerged from Cipriani restaurant in London where he dined with friends over the weekend:

Um ... seriously ... is the often-lauded Sexiest Man Alive really this sloppy an eater? That's actually kinda gross. [Source]

Speaking of sexy and gross ... here are new pictures of Orlando Bloom doing a little surfing over the weekend ...

... if you ignore all the urinating and nose picking, he's really quite a fetching sight. [Source]

Um ... should someone tell Paris Hilton that she's got a huge wad of toilet paper or something stuck to her leg?

Hee hee ... actually, it's funnier if we just let her find out on her own. [Source]

I know that Mary Kate Olsen is super skinny but she looks outright giant standing next to her twin sister Ashley in this first picture ...

... oh wait, it's a painting on its side ... my bad. Nice holes in the leggings, MK. [Source]

What is with all the sloppy-looking celebs? Is grunge making a comeback?

Can you tell that Hulk Hogan really doesn't want to be in this picture with Anna Nicole Smith?

Can you also see how this might be a peek into the future of what Brooke Hogan might turn out looking like? Eep! [Source]

Making Harry Potter films must really take a lot out of a young actor ... first we saw photos of Emma Watson (Hermoine Granger) chuggin' a bunch of brewskis on her downtime and now we have this photo of Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) puffin' on a cigarette in between takes on the set of Goblet of Fire:

What is it that they're doing to these poor kids that make them need to drink and smoke? It must be hard out there for a Hogwart's pupil. [Source, thanks Bailey]

Gwen Stefani is on the cover and within the pages of the February issue of Elle magazine:

I love Gwen and she always looks great but these photos are a bit snoozy. The outfits are a bit too muted for her ... the flashiest thing she's wearing is a pair of sequined hotpants? Eh. [Source]

Rosie O'Donnell has posted a new painting of hers on her official website:

There is no commentary and the piece is simply titled "Him" ... make of that what you will. [Source]

And finally, AOL Music has posted an exclusive Fall Out Boy performance on their site which features new songs off their new album Infinity On High:

The show is hot ... and is streamable whenever. I really like how the new stuff sounds ... I'm looking forward to hearing the album in full when it gets released on February 5th. [Source]

Les News:
Yesterday was an amazingly relaxing do nothing day. I was able to finish the book I've been reading (The Plot Against America), get some housework done and clear off some things on my DVR. Don'tcha wish everyday was like Sunday?

The weather has been so nice here lately ... I'm gonna try and enjoy some of it this afternoon. I hope y'all have a great day ... I'm out.
