Letter of Truth: Ali Lohan Edition

Well ... now that that nasty bizznazz with OK! magazine has piddled out already, it looks like Britney Spears is back on course with her career comeback. Rumors have been circulating that all the shopping that Britney has been doing over the past few days was so that she could compile a wardrobe of clothes to wear for yet another photoshoot ... this time for her album cover. Hmmm. Almost as soon as these rumors began to make the rounds, a set of "leaked camera phone pictures" supposedly from this ablum cover art photoshoot made their way to the Interweb. Altho there is a bit of similarity between what Britney actually looks like and the girl in these pictures, I don't know that I believe that they are one in the same. Compare these camera phone pictures with the couple of pics that were taken last week during the OK! magazine photoshoot:

I suppose it's possible that it's really Britney in the camo skirt on the bed, but my gut tells me that it isn't her ... the facial structure doesn't look right ... and I'm sorry but, I don't know that her waist is quite that small. Nonetheless, I'm sure Britney is moving full steam ahead with plans to release her new music. If she's at the point where she's shooting cover artwork then it shouldn't be long now before the album finally gets released. Incidentally, Britney Spears Fan Club members are still being urged to help Britney decide on the album's title. [Source, Source]

Matt Damon's latest installment of the Jason Bourne franchise got its Hollywood premiere last night at the Arc Light Theater. Here are a few pics from The Bourne Ultimatum premiere's red carpet:

Matt's BFF Ben Affleck and his wife Jennifer Garner were in the hiz to support Matt's movie opening. While promoting his new film, Matt has said that he much prefers a spy like Jason Bourne over one like James Bond: Bond is "an imperialist and he's a misogynist. He kills people and laughs and sips martinis and wisecracks about it." And while I wouldn't necessarily go that far, after all James Bond is James Bond, I am a fan of the Bourne franchise and am excited for this movie. [Source]

Matty boy has been having a pretty great week so far, not only did he get to enjoy a party for his new movie last night but he was also honored with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier in the day -- an event that evoked some bittersweet memories in his acting career:

Being immortalised on the "Walk of Fame" turned into a trip down memory lane for Matt Damon on Wednesday as the actor added his name to the star-studded stretch of sidewalk in Hollywood ... Speaking at a ceremony to mark the occasion, Damon said the event brought back memories of his years spent as a struggling actor-writer when he was living with close friend Ben Affleck. "Ben and I lived in a really, really crappy apartment about five blocks away from here ... We used to walk up and down here, and look at these stars and ... I hoped, I dreamed that this would happen but I ... thank you, thanks a lot." See folks, dreams really do come true. [Source]

In other premiere news, the new Catherine Zeta-Jones/Aaron Eckhart romantic comedy No Reservations had its premiere at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, NY last night ... here are a few pics:

I dunno why but I think this movie looks really cute. Something about the tale of a couple of unlikely chefs who find love in the kitchen sorta appeals to me. I blame either the fact that Bravo TV has sucked me in, yet again, with its latest season of Top Chef or the fact that Aaron Eckhart is sexy as hell. I'm not sure none of my fascination has anything to do with CZJ at all :) [Source]

The Simpsons Movie had its final premiere in London yesterday before the movie opens wide in theaters tomorrow ... here are a few pics from the red yellow carpet:

The McFly boys look cute in their little balloon wigs as does the ever-shiny (and still loveable) Stephen Gateley with his little balloon Lisa Simpson doll. I have no idea why Joshua Jackson showed up at the London premiere but there he was. Darion and I are all set to see the movie tomorrow night and I couldn't be more excited and anxious ... I've been waiting for this movie for years. [Source]

David Beckham seems to be suffering from a bout of camera shyness these days ... here are pictures of Becks doing a little shopping at the Adidas Store on Melrose Ave. yesterday afternoon and he didn't look at all interested in smiling for the paps:

I highly doubt that the US paparazzi are as overzealous as the British ones are so I wonder who peed in his Cornflakes. Maybe he's just upset because he's been living in America for a while now and he's yet to meet me. It's okay, Becks, give me a shout ... we'll go for coffee. [Source]

When Michael Lohan isn't giving on-camera interviews about his eldest daughter's legal woes, he's enjoying the laying on of hands by folks of the relgious persuasion in order to commune with God ... or something. Conveniently, he engages in this sort of behavior in front of the cameras as well. Ali Lohan, his youngest daughter who doesn't appear to be his biggest fan, is speaking out on behalf of her family (er, her family that doesn't include Michael Lohan, that is) in an email Letter of Truth sent to VH1. Here is the full text of Ali's letter:

Hi david this is ali lohan, i want everybody to know the truth out there. My mom is a single mom of four children she has always been there for us, she was my mother and father and still is. My father is telling all lies to people and saying he was such a great dad and was always there for us, my father was never there for us, My mom was always there souporting us. i think that the whole reason why my sister is upset with her self and not as cofident, is because of my dad not being around, and always staying out late and not coming home for days, he would come back home never himself, he was always was making excuses for his bad behavior . And would always blame my mother. He just wants everybody in the world knowing that he was a great dad. He wasnt that is all a lie. I just want my sister to stick throught this okay, and my mother and brothers and i are there for my sister 100% and have always been. I've wanted to say this for so long and get this out there and let everyone know that our family is like a normal family but of course we are put under a microscope because of lindsays fame, lindsay will be fine she is just going through a rough time right now but she will be fine. i know this for a fact. My sisters is just like a normal sister. her and I have so much in common. My mother and sister are huge insperations to me, they have made it through so much in there lives.

Thankyou for your time god bless, Ali

Spelling and grammatical errors notwithstanding, this sounds like a genuine sentiment of love and support from sister to sister ... and goes a long way in dispelling all this bullshizz that Daddy Lohan is spouting off all over the place. Sure, he may have changed his ways but he's gonna have to prove to his family that he is really there for them in other ways than just via TV interview. Blah ... I just feel bad for this whole family. [Source]

You know who else I feel bad for? Tinkerbell. Paris Hilton's #1 pooch just got knocked a little further down the totem pole because Paris just picked herself up another new dog (the second new dog she procured since being released from jail a few weeks ago) ... behold:

Paris Hilton already has a huge family of pets – but she added one more to the brood with a new Chihuahua on Wednesday. The heiress adopted the young, male pooch from Pets of Bel Air in Los Angeles just after 1 p.m. "She loved the puppy, she was all smiles and carried him out of the store in her arms," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. A store employee said Hilton was "so sweet." The store is the same one where Britney Spears bought a $3,000 Yorkie puppy less than two weeks ago. Wait until the Humane Society hears about this new puppy purchase. Now that Paris is bizzy loving her new dogs (this Chihuahua and her just purchased Yorkie named Cinderella) there can't be much love and attention left over for Tinkerbell or Bambi (her other two Chihuahuas), her Kinkajo named Baby Luv, her Rottweiler named Tyson, her Ferret named Rascal, her cats, her goats, her monkeys or any of her other animals.

Well now ... could it be that Hilary Duff has found herself a new boy to keep her company these days? Here are pictures of Hilary out with her new friend Mike Comrie, who plays center for the New York Islanders hockey team, out for a night on the town together:

Interesting ... I suppose they could be "just friends" ... or they could be LOV-ERS! I never thought Hil would go after the beefy type of guy -- er, not that I would object ;) [Source]

Heroes hottie Milo Ventimiglia paid a little visit to MTV's TRL yesterday, here are a few pics from his appearance:

With the new season of Heroes currently being filmed and the upcoming release of his directorial debut It's a Mall World (which is an original comedy series made exclusively for American Eagle Outfitters) on the horizon, things seem to be going very well for Milo. I don't even mind all that much that he cut his hair. All this and good looks too? Some people have all the luck. [Source]

Speaking of Heroes season 2, here are a bunch of just released promo pictures for the upcoming season:

Everyone looks sufficiently broody, Hayden Panettiere (who plays Claire Bennett) has got herself a new cheerleader uniform (with different colors -- does this mean she's going to cheer for a new school in the new season?) and Zachary Quinto (who plays Sylar) just looks superbad as hell. Woot! I am so geeked for the new season ... I just hope they don't muck it upppppp. [Source]

Here are a couple of promo pics from the new Angelina Jolie movie Beowulf:

OOOH sexy. Angelina's picture looks a lot like the promo pics she did for Tomb Raider except with less weaponry. I don't know that Grendel's mother is supposed to look like a super hot chick. [Source]

And speaking of super hot chicks, check out these pics of Heidi Klum from the new issue of Arena magazine:

I'm always amazed how Heidi can look porny and still sweet and innocent all at the same time. [Source]

And finally, here is our first look at the first poster from the 4th installment of the SAW franchise:

Interesting, with Jigsaw dead who will be left to take up the cause? I guess we'll be finding out very soon. [Source]

Les News:
Yesterday was a pretty quiet day ... I read a huge portion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which I'm trying to consume as quickly as possible so that the ending won't be spoiled for me. I must admit, this final book is just as good as all the others ... the story is so compelling that I am really dying to find out how everything will end. I may do a short review when I'm finished but it'll depend on how the book turns out. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone myself.

Tonight, Mike and I are going to the House of Blues to see The Bangles in concert! Neither of us have ever seen The Bangles live so we're both really excited. But, before I make my way to the Sunset Strip for the show, I've got some more Harry Potter to read.

And I guess that's it ... I'm out.
