Lessons Learned

Alright ... before y'all take a gander at these new pics of Britney Spears out in LA last night, I feel that I must remind you that our dear Britney has come a long way in recent months and at the very least she is mindful that there are paparazzi everywhere trying to take her picture. Okay, so maybe not totally mindful but ... oh what the hell, at least she's wearing underwear. Here are a few pics of Britney inside her car outside Joseph's nightclub last night showin' the world that she has learned her lesson ...

... er, she learned the lesson that it's always a good idea to wear underwear, that is. She's yet to learn the lesson that it's prolly not the best idea to be hoppin' over car seats if you're wearing a short dress. Hey, it could've been a lot worse. [Source]

OH! Looks like I spoke too soon. Yeah, here is that "worse" I was talking about:

Megan Fox, Michael Bay and Bumblebee were all on hand for the world premiere of Transformers in Sydney, Australia last night. Here are a few pics from the premiere and photocall:

Shia LeBeouf was nowhere to be seen, nor were any of the other stars of the film that I vaguely recognize. It appears that the Transformers peeps are trying to follow in the Spider-Man 3 footsteps in that they are planning premieres all over the globe leading up to the big ones here in the US. I'm not sure if this tactic will necessarily work as well but hype is hype. Here's hoping there are a few more celebs at the next premiere ... I wouldn't mind a few more Transformers either.

Melanie Brown (who will forever also be known as Scary Spice) met up with her former paramour Eddie Murphy in court yesterday for a paternity hearing where Eddie had to submit to a DNA test in order to determine the paternity of her newborn baby girl Angel Iris. Hmm ... I wonder if Eddie had to bring along his own cup. Here are pics of both Mel B. and Eddie arriving at court yesterday:

Photo credit: Splash News

Melanie has always contended that Eddie is the baby's father and Eddie has always contended that he is not ... but he is changing his tune just a tad. Yesterday he publicly claimed that if he turns out to be the father then he will "do the right thing" and stand by Melanie and the baby. Gee, what a swell guy. [Source]

In other Spice-related news, Victoria Beckham showed up at Dodgers Stadium in LA last night to embarrass herself in front a crowd of thousands. Here are pics of VB trying to pass herself off as a baseball fan:

I love that the bat she's holding is actually thicker than she is. She should stick to soccer balls ... well, actually soccer players' balls ... as in David Beckham's ... as in I hate her ;) [Source]

VB wasn't the only celeb tooling around with the Dodgers this week, here are pics of Adrian Pasdar (who really needs to ditch the homeless man beard), James Van Der Beek, Danny Strong (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and James Denton at the 49th Annual Hollywood Stars Game held at Dodger Stadium:

Unfortch the Dodgers lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in the Stars Game but it looks like the celebs had a bunch of fun and really, isn't that what life should be all about? [Source]

Madonna and hubby Guy Ritchie met up with Justin Timberlake at Locatelli's restaurant in Central London for dinner last night, here are a couple pics of the celebs making their way inside:

I dunno that I like the idea of Madonna hanging out with Justin Timberlake. I think it's great that they are working together on new music and I'm sure that's really what this dinner was all about but the thought of them hanging out as friends seems strange to me ... she's starting to dress like him and I'm so not down. [Source]

Yesterday we saw pictures of Jennifer Aniston's new dude Paul Sculfor doing the "walk of shame" out of her Malibu, CA home earlier this week and today we've got a couple pictures of Jen trying to also sneak out of her place shortly thereafter as if nothing at all were going on between the two:

Oooh ... Jen is sooo sneaky. I mean, by leaving her place 10 minutes after Paul did there is no way we can assume that anything romantical is going on between them. It looks like this is the game she wants to play ... it'll prolly be months before we even get close to seeing them out in public together. [Source, Source]

Pink reader Liz sends in an interesting tale involving Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and an incident that she says she witnessed at an acoustic FOB private show in Chicago, IL this week. According to Liz, Pete opened a can of whoop-ass on a heckling audience member. Here are a couple pics of Pete and Ashlee Simpson one of which was taken at a private after-hours event at Debonair Social Club and the other was snapped while the pair were partying at Enclave, both in Chicago around the same time that this incident occurred:

Here's what Liz has to report: During the first or second song, some dude in the audience was taunting Pete with "Where's Ashlee," as well as some High School/Cross Town Rivalry. (Lame.) The boys headed off the small stage to exit, when Pete went directly after the guy in the crowd. It probably lasted about 20 seconds total -- but Pete was just wailing on this guy. Pete threw the first punch, and then proceeded to kick him in the face while the guy was down. A couple other people were involved, but Pete was all over this guy. Pete was ripped away by his bodyguard and scurried out the door. At that point, his bodyguard took one last cheap shot at the guy while he was down. There was blood everywhere. It was a major fight, and the guys bolted- what a weird feeling to leave with such a small audience.

She goes on to add: It was such a disappointment to see -- the rest of us in the audience were totally stoked about the performance, and we definitely didn't see this one coming. In retrospect, I thought Pete would be a bit more animated during the quick set, but he must have been steaming over said individual. It's a bummer, but I thought I would let you know.

I never knew that Pete could be so testy ... I would imagine that FOB have suffered a fair amount of heckling from audience members over the years (there are haters everywhere) so I'm surprised that he would react in this manner yet again (didn't he attack or retaliate against someone else at a show earlier this year?). Maybe it was the cross town rivalry stuff that set him off ... Pete's got some mad hometown pride for his peeps. In any event, it's too bad there aren't any pics of Pete doing the beatdown ... I bet those would be worth checking out. [thanks Liz]

UPDATE: Pete Wentz emailed a statement to MTV News defending his actions at this show, he writes:

"The story on the Internet is absolutely false. Yes, we were playing an acoustic afterparty for Spin. It was a good time for the most part. Yes, the guy was heckling me and the band, so were other people, most in good fun. But we get heckled onstage all the time, and while I'm a jerk, I'm not the kind of person who would ever lash out at someone simply over this. I mean I'm not as big as Akon and haven't written as many good songs. The truth is on the way out the door I had to pass directly next to the guy and I knew it, so I kept my head down and walked out. As I did, the guy reached out and grabbed me and said something I couldn't really hear — it was a glorious use of the English language, though. As he grabbed me, I punched him. Yell all you want at me, say whatever, but in a situation like that I will defend myself. After that, of course, it got chaotic, [but] we have several independent witnesses that gave statements saying he grabbed me first ... I am not worried over the outcome, as I was clearly in the right. Anything anyone else is saying or writing is simply not true."

Hmm ... there are still no pictures of this incident. I'm sure there will be more on this story to come over the next few days.

I do not believe there is a bikini in creation that has the fortitude to keep all of tennis star Serena Williams completely covered up ...

... she is just way too much woman for one suit to contain. [Source]

Here are a few adorable pictures of Larry Birkhead with his beautiful little meal ticket baby daughter Dannielynn Hope Marhsall Birkhead lookin' all happy and stuff for an interview with Greta Van Susteren which was filmed at Anna Nicole Smith's home in LA:

Aww ... it looks like Larry's Father's Day celebration has gotten off to an early start. I am amazed at how different Dannilynn looks in these pics. She seems to have aged considerably since we last saw pictures of her after Larry was proven to be her father. I might suspect that this is a completely different baby if I didn't know how valuable the real Dannilynn is. They do look happy and cute together tho. [Source]

In other Dannii news, Miss Dannii Minogue has been named the newest judge on the UK singing talent show X-Factor which was created by Simon Cowell's production company and which has an uncanny resemblance to American Idol (or Pop Idol as it's called in the UK). Here are pics of a faboo Dannii looking overly ecstatic at X-Factor auditions earlier this week:

Perhaps Dannii's stint as an X-Factor judge will do for her career what being a judge on American Idol did for Paula Abdul's career ... er, hopefully without all the boozy, craziness. [Source]

In other Minogue news, here is a new picture of Kylie Minogue:

Well, okay ... this isn't really news ... it's really only just a picture. But it's a pretty picture so you're welcome! [Source]

Reichen Lehmkuhl has his own line of titanium jewelry for men called Fly Naked with Reichen which is described as "sleek and sexy". So, in order to peddle his wares, Reichen has stripped off all of his clothes, enlisted the aid of his current boyfriend Ryan Barry and come up with this ad campaign:

You will notice in the center picture how Reichen attempts to draw the eye to his fetching bracelet by exposing his nude ass ... clever. Eh, I don't know that I really care for his kind of stuff but I do like 1.) that Reichen and Ryan are still together (therefore I will now refer to them as Ry-chen) and 2.) Reichen is letting Ryan paw him in one of the pics. So much love. [Source via Source]

Ugh ... speaking of nekkidness ... here are a couple new unspeakable horrors courtesy of the website The site has uploaded some new goodies stuff to the site for subscribers to enjoy ... and so, from the man who brought us THIS (scroll down) comes these new pics:

And finally, here's a cute little something to try and wash away the image of Cisco Adler's genitals ... LOGO will be debuting a new animated series called Rick and Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in all the World:

Click HERE to check out the trailer for this cute new show. This is something I'm deff gonna have to watch cuz, you know, there isn't enough gay sex in today's animated TV shows. Hot. [Source]

Huh ... imagine that ... no Paris Hilton in Jail stuff today. Gold star for me!

Les News:
Yesterday afternoon David and I spent our last hours together driving around town just hanging out. I realize that it always sounds like we are the most boring couple on Earth whenever I talk about how we spend our time together but I can assure you, I wouldn't have it any other way. We had a great Thai dinner before we stopped for coffee at Aroma in Studio City ... then it was time to go to the airport. There are tentative plans for me to go out to NYC for a quick weekend in a couple of weeks but the next big trip I'll be taking won't come until next month when David and I fly off to London for my birthday :)

Ugh, we are so boring.

Happy Tuesday, y'all. I'm out.
