Buy Me Some Penuts & Cracker Jack

Heh ... I guess there ain't no way to sugar coat this little item so I guess we'll just have to grin, bear it and go with what we've got. Ms. Britney Spears is the covergirl of the new issue of US Weekly magazine (on newsstands tomorrow) but she isn't featured on the cover alone -- 21-year-old college student Matt Encinias was lucky enough to spend a few magical hours with Brit Brit and then sold the details of his encounter with her to the magazine ... so that we can all share in the lurve. Here are a few pics of the topless Britney Spears with her boy toy Matt from the new issue of US Weekly:

Britney Spears is on a tramp-age! The latest man to fall into the hard-partying pop star's orbit is Matt Encinias, a 21-year-old college student who tells Us Weekly the exclusive details of his twisted night with Spears in the latest issue. In just five hours, Encinias went from being an extra in her latest video to pounding drinks and locking lips with the single mom of two in a rooftop pool at L.A's Standard Downtown hotel. Although Spears was expecting her two young sons to be dropped off at her Beverly Hills home at noon (as per her custody arrangement with their father, Kevin Federline), the singer had arranged to have the pool reopened at 2 am for the exclusive use of her group, which included then-assistant Shannon Funk and some hand-picked male extras from her video shoot. "Britney was the first one to undress, and then everyone else followed," Encinias tells Us. "I turned around and saw that she was topless and she had fake tattoos of flowers on her nipples from the shoot. I was told all she wanted to do that night was kiss a boy," the 5'10" California native continues. "And that's what she did. Mission accomplished." It was when the alcohol started running low that an inebriated Spears, 25, suggested a game of Truth or Dare. "I was dared to get naked and get out of the pool and walk as though I was on a catwalk in a fashion show," says Encinias. "Britney was laughing really hard." The Sun newspaper has a few more deets and quotes: Onlookers watched in shock as Brit - who divorced KEVIN FEDERLINE days later - stripped at a hotel pool. Brit swigged from a bottle of Jack Daniel's and downed Mojito cocktails before flashing her breasts and playing a game of truth or dare ... The singer had pulled the plug on the pole-dancing shoot for Give Me More after breaking down and sending the crew home. Britney's assistant hand-picked Mike and a group of male pals to go to her hotel for drinks by the pool. Mike explained: "Britney was drinking Mojitos and she'd been drinking some Jack Daniel's ... Suddenly she shocked everyone by just stripping out of her top. She went into the pool topless -- her boobs were exposed and she had a drink in her hand and a hat on with sunglasses ... She straddled me and put her legs around me. When I started kissing her I did everything in my power - from my previous experience of kissing girls -- not to mess it up. Britney had more drinks -- she was having Jack and more Mojitos in between me feeling her up, her boobs, and kissing her on her neck. Her body was very nice. It was sexual and sensual kissing. It took some effort to perfect. She is a great kisser -- I'd actually say a phenomenal kisser." Mike was invited back to Britney's suite once the party was over at 4am ... Mike was an extra on the video shoot and says she later tried to seduce him in her hotel suite -- while wearing nothing but a pair of pink pants. He said: "I went in and found Britney lying on the bed with her knees up and just a pair of pink panties on. She was looking like she was ready -- and I wanted to finalise it." Unfortch (or lucky) for Matt, an incident with one of his passed out drunk friends forced his early exit from Britney's love chamber. It's unclear just how far they went once they retired to her hotel suite but one can imagine that some pretty grody things went down. It's hard to discount his story once you take the photos into consideration. While I think it's pretty bogue for him to run off to the tabloids to sell his story, I suppose I'm not really surprised. I just don't understand how Britney Spears continues to act this way when the custody of her children is still at stake. It's so sad ... if she finds herself childless one day because the courts decided that she's in no position to take care of her kids, she need only look back to incidents like this to understand the why. Boo. [Source, Source]

And yet ... the party wagon just keeps on rollin'. Here are pictures of Britney in one of her trademark outfits making her way out of a video shoot in Santa Monica, CA last night:

Sheer blouse, satin hot pants, green contact lenses ... yep, that sounds about right. [Source]

Later on in the night, Britney kept things going by taking the party to Winston's where she chilled a bit with Cousin Alli (and God knows who else) until she emerged after club closing time with lollipop firmly in mouth:

Honestly, I'm scared to find out what other adventures Britney Spears has in her future. I guess I'm just worried that she continues to see nothing wrong with the way that she is carrying on with whoever, doing whatever she wants. I don't really see things changing at this point ... I guess we'll just have to see how far she takes it. [Source]

Alright, let's move on ... the nominees for the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards were announced yesterday afternoon in NYC at MTV Studios in Times Square. Here are a couple pics from the announcement yesterday:

Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé Knowles have scored a leading seven nominations each for this year's MTV Video Music Awards, it was announced on Total Request Live Tuesday. Kanye West and Rihanna were just shy of the top spots with five nominations each, while newcomer Amy Winehouse received three. Timberlake's "What Goes Around ... Comes Around," Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable," West's "Stronger," Rihanna's "Umbrella," Winehouse's "Rehab" and French electro duo Justice's "D.A.N.C.E." will face off for the video of year honors. West and Rihanna (and sporting a cane) were on TRL Tuesday when the nominations were announced – as were fellow scheduled performers Chris Brown, Timbaland and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz. MTV also announced that the VMAs will be a one-night stand this year, airing live from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas at 9 p.m. on Sept. 9. Other nominees include Shakira, Fergie, Nelly Furtado, Gym Class Heroes, Lily Allen, Carrie Underwood and more. You can get in on the action already and cast your vote for Best New Artist HERE (my money is on Amy Winehouse). [Source]

Sarah Jessica Parker was on hand at the Macy's department store in Herald Square in NYC yesterday to officially launch her newest fragrance called Covet. Funny faces and enormous forehead (which she utilizes quite expertly) notwithstanding, the official unveiling seemed to go off without a hitch:

Hee hee ... as crazy-insane as SJP's new commercial for Covet is, I think I kinda like it. There is something about the demented look in her eye as she exclaims, "I had to have it" that makes the ad endearing ... or maybe it's the fact that it airs on TV every 15 minutes and I've merely been programmed to love it.

Life seems to be getting back to normal at the Lohan compound in Merrick, NY on Long Island as the family continues to hide-out while Lindsay seeks treatment at her new rehab facility in Sundance, UT. Here are pics of the Lohans taking possession of a pizza ordered from Domino's Pizza:

Photo credit: Splash News

Much props to Les Lohans for getting their pizza from a Detroit based company ;) Tho, it looks like they may have bitten off more than they could chew (as it were) because the family ordered too much food and ended up giving the extra to the hungry paps waiting outside. If you would like to own the Lohan Domino's pizza box that was given to the paparazzi then you can place your bid HERE. [Source]

While Britney is off seducing college students in LA and Lindsay is trying to clean herself up at rehab in Utah, Paris Hilton is continuing her campaign to straighten out and fly right. Here are pictures of Paris doing a little light summer reading at a beachhouse in Malibu, CA yesterday afternoon:

JUST 24 hours after The Sun showed party girl PARIS HILTON in her undies at HUGH HEFNER'S Playboy party, she is now back to reading spiritual books. The heir-head spent the day in Malibu drooling over her Living in the Spiritual Zone book with her trusty sidekick chihuahua. She also picked up La Dolce Vita - perhaps to brush up on her Italian filmography - and flicked through the pages of a baby book, maybe to lend some tips to pal NICOLE RICHIE. You know, I would just love to discuss the complexity of existentialism in spirituality with Paris just to see the look on her face as she discusses all that she's learned so far from the numerous books she's been reading photographed carrying around town since the days leading up to her incarceration. I must admit, I'm still very bummed that nothing ever came of those prison diaries that she was rumored to have been writing while she served out her sentence at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, CA last June. Now that would've made the most excellent summer reading of all. [Source]

After spending part of this week in Santa Barbara, CA throwing a huge Military Commando-themed birthday party for their eldest son Maddox Jolie-Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt packed up the kiddies and made their way to Chicago, IL yesterday afternoon. Here are pics of Brangelina unloading their children from their private jet in Chicago yesterday:

Photo credit: Splash News

LOL :) I love that they have so many kids that they have to make multiple trips to carry them all out. Curiously, their newest child Pax Thien was not photographed getting unloaded from the jet ... or maybe that's him sleeping and Maddox wasn't the one photographed -- they've got so many damn kids, it's getting harder to tell them apart. Incidentally, Shiloh Nouvel looks enormous! I can't believe that little baby has gotten so bit so fast! [Source]

Speaking of things that have gotten big ... here is a picture (and a close-up) of Matthew McConaughey enjoying a little bite to eat with his legs spread while wearing a pair of green shorts:

Now, I don't know what, exactly, Matty boy has got stuffed inside those shorts but I think I could venture a guess ... but I would much rather venture a peek :D [thanks Doug]

OOOOOH Lordy, I've been hearing rumors that Lauryn Hill has gone and lost her mind (rambling maniacally on stage and what not) but I don't know that I really believed that she had gone quite so crazy ... until I saw this picture of Ms. Hill on stage, in concert in Brooklyn, NY at the 25th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series this past Monday night:

Dear God, someone help this poor woman out. And as for this new look? Yeah, I'm not lovin' it. [Source]

Hey Zac Efron fans ... have you ever wanted to take a mostly nekkid (and oft times Cheetos-colored) Zac and dress him up in various outfits of your choosing? Well, now you're in luck ... with your own Zac Efron Dress-Up Doll, you can play to your heart's content:

Just make sure you keep color-coordination in mind ... you don't want to put him in an outfit that might clash with his beautifully bronzed skin. [Source]

In other Efronness, Zac will be featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine:

Since Daniel Radcliffe opened the door to the shirtless exploitation of under aged teenage heartthrobs in sexy photoshoots, it seems that Zac Efron has decided to jump on the bandwagon. It looks like bared belly happy trails are in this season. [Source]

Radar magazine has come up with another of their amazing yet fake magazine covers, this one featuring a nekkid and boozed up Prince Harry lounging on the throne (er, the real kind of throne not the porcelain kind ... altho, a pic like that might've been even hotter). This cover artwork accompanies a story that details his love of booze, women and partying ... natch:

Radar's September cover story, an insider account of the turbulent life of England's 22-year-old pin-up prince, reveals the details of Harry's rowdy lifestyle and his military career. As a second lieutenant in Britain's elite Blues and Royals unit, the prince was so desperate to join his regiment in Iraq that he threatened to quit the military if he wasn't allowed to serve. When it was revealed that Al Qaeda had put a $500,000 bounty on his head, he even drew up a will dispersing his multi-million-dollar estate. But days before Harry was to ship out to Iraq, Sir Richard Dannatt, who heads up the British Army, personally phoned the prince to inform him that his six-month deployment had been canceled. On the night his regiment flew to Iraq, a dejected Harry partied at the Syndicate, a Bristol club renowned for its Ecstasy-fueled fetes. In the following excerpt, Radar examines Harry's party-boy antics. I am a huge fan of Radar magazine so I'll be making a bee-line to the newsstand to get a copy of this issue. Incidentally, there are many people who believe that this is an actual picture of Harry on the throne and not a Photoshop creation ... sadly, it is not so. But, one can always hope that if his hard-partying ways continue then a photo like this (or better) might surface some day :) [Source]

Gwyneth Paltrow is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine ...

... despite the fact that she looks a lot like Sienna Miller with bad eyebrows. [Source]

A very Mary-Kate Olsen-looking Ashley Olsen graces the cover of the new issue of Marie Claire magazine:

Strangely enough, I don't hate these pics. They are a little bit ridiculous but I think they're also fun, too. It's not just anyone who can pull off pop cans as hair rollers you know. Me likey. [Source]

And finally, here are a few more Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter '07 campaign ads featuring the happily married Stefi Graff and Andre Agassi along with a few more Scarlett Johansson pics thrown in:

You don't really hear that much about Andre and Stefi these days anymore so it's nice to see that two of my fave tennis stars are still alive and kicking. They seem a strange choice for the new LV ad campaign but, I suppose, no stranger than using Mikhail Gorbechov. They look so happy and in love with those LV bags strewn in the background. [Source]

Les News:
Last night my dad and I went downtown to watch the Detroit Tigers take on the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Comerica Park despite the threat of rain. My dad and I haven't been to a Tigers baseball game together since I was about 10 years old (back when the Tigers still played at the original Tigers Stadium at Michigan and Trumball) and I figured it was about time that we took in another game together. My dad is getting on in years and I wasn't sure that he'd be up for dealing with the throngs of people for the game ... but I was wrong, he was very excited to go -- and we had an amazing time together. Here are a few pics:

We had great seats near some fun fans and were able to cheer the Tigers on to victory (final score, 9-6). I remember that I brought along a baseball mitt with me the first time my dad and I went to a Tigers game because I was convinced I was going to catch a foul ball ... so I brought along a mitt last night. Unfortch, I was not able to catch a ball despite the fact that 2 of them flew in my general direction. I was foiled by the guy sitting in front of me who happened to get his hand right in front of my glove to steal away my ball. Ah well, I'll catch one next time. Honestly, I was more interested in recreating the memory with my dad so, on that account, it was mission accomplished.

Tonight my friends and I are going out to the Living Room in Berkley to have a Martinis & Pizza party in celebration of my birthday again. Because I didn't come home for my birthday last month, Sarah insisted we have a party on this trip ... and tonight's the night. I know I'll be in fine shape to celebrate because Sarah and I just got 2 more sets of amazing tickets for Tori Amos shows during this week's round of presales this morn! Holla :)

So ... I guess that is all ... have a great day, y'all. I'm out.
