Letter Of Truth: Lights Of The World Edition

Britney Spears speaks, y'all! has been updated, it's been pretty much totally revamped actually, with a new message from Britney thanking her fans for their prayers:

The reason for this letter is to let everyone know that their prayers have truly helped me. I am so blessed that you care enough about me to be concerned and will continue to live in this brighter state with all of you by my side during this trying time. We are the lights of the world and we all need to continuously inspire others and look to the higher power.

You are all in my prayers.


Love, Britney

Sounds like Britney is in a really good place right now ... I bet those House of Blues shows have really helped with her self-esteem. It's great to hear her sounding so positive ... from one light of the world to another, You go girl! [Source, thanks Lisa]


JJ Lives! Dy-No-Mite!

Well wonder of wonders ... Jayden James Federline Spears, Esq. actually exists ... in flesh and blood ... and, as far as can be determined from these grainy photos, has no discernable maladies or defects. Britney Spears has kept her youngest son under tight wraps ever since he was born last September 12 ... so far, we've only gotten glimpses of his body parts sticking out of car seats or poking out from under blankets which has caused much speculation that there may be something wrong with him. These somewhat grainy pics of Britney carrying Jayden in a garden in Malibu, CA seem to show that there isn't a thing wrong with the lad:

Actually, little Jayden looks exactly like his brother Sean Preston. All the parts seem to be intact, he's got some hair on his head, he looks really cute. I'm very surprised that Britney hasn't allowed him to be photographed professionally by now ... I'm sure People magazine would drop everything to take the pics. He's a cute little kid ... I'd like to see more of him. [Source]

In other Britney news, it looks as if we're ever going to get to see her rock her short hair. I was hoping that Britney's intense love of wigs would subside long enough for her to show the world what she looks like with super short hair but it appears that won't actually happen ... Britney has started going out sans wigs but she has had hair extensions sewn into her natural hair:

OY! She's already started bleaching what little hair she has! It'd be a shame if her hair fell out. Personally, I think Brit would look amazing with a short little do' like the one that Kylie Minogue rocked last year ... but we all know that Brit Brit really loves her fake hair extensions. Boo.

Microsoft XBOX threw a little party for the release of their new much-anticipated Halo 3 video game and invited a whole slew of celebs to come out last night to be among the first peeps to play the game ... so of course, every male celeb under the age of 40 with an XY chromosome made it a point to swing by the soiree ... here are just a few of the celebs who were in attendance at Quixote Studios in West Hollywood, CA:

Not only did many of the Hollywood "It" Dudes make it out for the event (and, may I ask, what the eff is up with Ryan Cabrera and his new look? He looks like he's wearing nothing but Ashlee Simpson hand-me-downs) but so did Paris and Nicky Hilton. I believe this is the first party/event that Paris has attended since she was sentenced to a 45-day jail sentence a couple of weeks ago. Paris and Nicky snuck in to the party thru the backdoor so as to avoid being photographed by the press ... I never thought I'd live to see the day where Paris Hilton opts NOT to walk the red carpet.

In London, a bunch of UK celebs came out to Kensington Roof Gardens to watch Natasha Bedingfield perform and DJ Mark Ronson spin for the launch party for the newest BlackBerry on the market -- the BlackBerry Curve. Here are a few pics from the red carpet:

BlackBerry is very smart to throw these types of parties to promote their mobile devices ... celebs are overwhelming choosing the BlackBerry over other PDA-type mobile phones (like the Sidekick) and they are finally playing up to the needs of the young mobile phone user. This new device is a sexier version of the typical BlackBerry which not only handles the usual email, internet functions but also comes with a 2 megapixel camera and handles media playback. With fun BlackBerrys like this coming out on the market to compete with the new iPhone from Apple, you have to wonder what's going to happen to all the other phones out there. Alls I know is that I love my BlackBerry ... I'm so glad they are finally both functional and fun. [Source]

Woooo ... it seems that Carrie Underwood and her long-time secret boyfriend and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo have finally decided to come out as a public couple. The couple showed up together at the Academy of Country Music Awards show in Las Vegas last night ... oh yeah, and she also picked up a couple of awards as well:

"American Idol" champ Carrie Underwood was [a] winner, continuing her awards shows mastery by taking home prizes for top female vocalist, album of the year ("Some Hearts") and video of the year ("Before He Cheats"). "I would not be here if it were not for 'American Idol,"' she said as she accepted her vocal award. "Thank you, fans. God bless you." Yep, it looks like Carrie aka the "Country Kelly Clarkson" has cleaned up at another awards show. And from what I understand, Tony Romo played the dutiful boyfriend all night long hardly straying from her side at all. Awww ... ain't that cute? [Source]

Here are some pics of David Beckham training with is Real Madrid team mates over the weekend before sitting out the Real Madrid vs. Espanyol game which he enjoyed with his favorite robot Victoria Beckham on Saturday:

I love it when Becks gets all physical and sweaty workin' out all those muscles on the playing field. There's something about seeing him in action that gives me a funny feeling in my pants ;) [Source]

Posh didn't stick around to watch her hubby do anymore training tho, yesterday she boarded a plane at London's Heathrow airport and made her way to Los Angeles ... where she was met by her very own camera crew:

No doubt she's already begun filming scenes for her new NBC reality TV show which will chronicle her family's move to America. I'm sure she'll be flying in and out of LA a lot over the coming weeks so that she can oversee renovations on her new LA home and still be home to take care of her husband and children -- yep, sounds like reality TV fodder to me. I am really excited to see this show when it finally airs ... I can't wait to see the robot in action. [Source, Source]

Paris Hilton, in addition to sneaking into parties late at night, has decided to take up reading ... it would seem ... after all, why else would she be seen carrying around a book ... unless she just wants us to think that she's reading so that we'll feel sorry for her for going to jail? I dunno, maybe it makes sense in her mind:

I'm sure this book, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, is a fabulous book but I would suggest that she carry around the Bible, the Koran, the Poetic Edda or some other such religious text in order to illicit sympathy, that way we'd really know that she is repentant. [Source]

Hmm ... so Cameron Diaz is really messin' around with master illusionist Criss Angel, huh?

Clearly they are involved in a serious new relationship ... just look at the way the two are walking side-by-side. [Source]

Yeah, I don't think that Cam's ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake is losing any sleep over this Criss Angel thing ... he's too bizzy sucking face with his new friend Jessica Biel:

Singer Justin Timberlake has gone public with new love Jessica Biel - sharing passionate public kisses and a string of romantic dates while in the UK for his world tour. The millionaire singer flew the 25-year-old actress to Manchester for an unconventional dinner date, and apart from sharing very passionate, public kisses, he's been showing Jessica the sights. Despite staying at Manchester's five-star Lowry hotel, Justin spurned the a la carte menu for a chicken dinner at chain Nandos. The smooching couple were also joined by super-producer Timberland, also on tour with Justin, and Manchester United footballer Alan Smith. The following day Justin took Jessica to watch Smith's team get beaten by West Ham. According to the Mirror, a source said: "Justin's really into Jess and when he found out she had some free time he asked her to join him on the UK leg of his tour. They're both doing everything they can to keep their relationship low-profile but when they're among friends they can hardly keep their hands off each other." I think I like JT with Jessical Biel ... she's not someone I would've picked for him but they do look cute together. I'm just glad that he didn't decide to go with Scarlett Johansson ... because now I can all them Jesstin :) [Source]

Not to be outdone by the public philandering by Jesstin (it does have a nice ring to it, don't you think?), Kate Moss and Pete Doherty (who are recently reunited after days of being apart) not only decided to swap spit in public but they chose to do so right in front of the cameras:

Just look at that longing in Pete's eyes ... you can't fake a lurve like that. PeteMoss may kinda gross me out a little (well, a lot) but they do seem happily in love. [Source]

Avril Lavigne wants the world to know that she's a grown-up mature woman ... so, of course, she decides to pose topless on the cover of Blender magazine:

Nothing says I'm a mature woman who is happily married and not just some little punk-rocker wannabe girl trying to shock everyone by almost showing off my boobs like a topless photoshoot in a music magazine. Well done, Avril. [Source]

Jessica Alba is also trying her hand at lookin' sexy in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine:

I think she gets it a little more right than Avril does but I'm still not that impressed. I don't know how she got talked into not only posing while crawling on her knees but also spitting out water at the same time as well. Nah, she's better than that. [Source]

The cover artwork for Kelly Clarkson's new album My December has been released:

If I were Amy Lee, I'd sue. [Source]

And finally, cajun boy in the city Brett sent me a bunch of amazing photos of my girl Laura Bell Bundy recreating the exact moment that she heard that she was nominated for the Best Actress in a Musical Tony Award for her role in the Broadway musical Legally Blonde yesterday ...

... and I think it's safe to say that she was pretty happy. I am so thrilled for her and I will be crossing all of my appendages in the hopes that she wins the award when the Tonys air on CBS on June 10th. Break a leg, Laura Bell ... I'm sending all my Pink energy your way! XOXO [Source]

Les News:
Last night I finally got to hang out with Adriana after so many weeks of us trying to get together. She is very bizzy, you see, so it's damn near impossible to get to see her. But last night we finally hooked up and spent a great night out together. We were joined by her friend Courtnay for a fun night of massage and food. We went to the Pho-Siam Thai Spa so that Thai women would walk all over us ... and it was divine. This spa is so nice and the workers there are so amazing ... Thai massage beats the hell out of Swedish massage. My masseur bent me, flipped me and pulled me in every direction ... she worked out knots I didn't even know I had. It's only $40 a hour! You can't beat that! The 3 of us made a pact to go back regularly for more massages and other spa treatments.

After we were all thoroughly relaxed we went out to stuff our faces with amazing food at Rambutan. We pretty much ate until we were near death ... it was divine. I'm always so happy when I'm hanging out with AY ... she's fun as hell. I'm so glad to have a little piece of Detroit here with me in LA in her.

Tonight Jim and I are hanging out before he jets off to destinations unknown this weekend ... and I guess that is all for now. I'm out.
