The Fabulous Life

Britney Spears has, once again, decided that the blonde look is so yesterday and has dyed her hair (ie. her extensions) back to black. It looks like she may have done the job herself (or maybe Cousin Allie was involved) in her kitchen sink because you can make out a few dye stains around her hairline. As much as I like her blonde, I think I generally like her with darker hair ... the dark color hides her extensions better:

At first I was all excited that Britney dyed her hair black in preparation for her upcoming performance at the True Colors Concert in LA at the Greek Theater next Saturday, June 30th BUT Rosie O'Donnell, who is currently on tour with Cyndi Lauper on the True Colors Tour, reveals in THIS video blog that Britney may not be performing after all:

"And the rumors are swirling about that Britney is joining us in L.A. Now Cyndi said it wasn't happening, and it's [thank you] it's Cyndi's tour, so she would know. But if it is happening, I'm thrilled. 'Cause I enjoy Britney.' Brit if you're watching... honey, you and me. We're gonna share a backstage moment. Cause I love you kid."

I sincerely hope that this is some sort of misunderstanding because People magazine rarely gets stories like THIS wrong. I'd hate it if Britney weren't allowed to perform at the True Colors Concert on Saturday ... especially after she went to all the trubs of dying her hair. [Source, Source]

Welp, another Glastonbury Festival is in the history books as the fest closed out its weekend fete last night. Here are a few pics from performances by The Go! Team, Kaiser Chiefs and The Who:

By pretty much all accounts, this year's Glastonbury Festival was a very muddy yet fun affair. I hear that is is very rainy in the UK these days ... I really hope that it stops by July 11th :) [Source]

Here are a few pics of lovers Pete Doherty and Kate Moss as they made their presence known both backstage and on stage at Glastonbury this year:

The girlfriend of rocker Pete Doherty was spotted on two separate days at Glastonbury shooting footage of her boyfriend on a cine camera. Kate's adventure in film began on Saturday when she was pictured in the wings of one of the stages filming Pete as he performed with his band Babyshambles. She added some glamour to the festival when she joined him during his evening set. A huge roar of approval went up as she gave Doherty a kiss on the lips during La Belle De La Bete, before singing a few lines from the song. Last night, the supermodel, dressed in a brown outfit and sporting her trademark cigarette, continued to document the festival while she sang along to Babyshambles songs ... The couple also took in some of the sights of Europe's biggest festival. The ever-stylish Kate made no concession to the muddy conditions as she stuck to her knee-length leather boots. Ah PeteMoss ... how made for one another you are. With the way they operate, I wouldn't be surprised if footage from Kate's vid camera ended up on You Tube sometime soon. [Source]

Yesterday I incorrectly surmised that Brangelina had packed up their belongings (and children) because Angelina Jolie had finished up her tenure in the Czech Republic because filming of her new movie Wanted was completed. In fact, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie merely skipped outta town for the night to spend some off-time in Bilbao, Spain where Brad wanted to shoot photos of the Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim museum (among other buildings). Here are pics of Brad shooting his photos in Spain:

See, even big name celebs like to take little overnight trips to touristy vacation spots. Hee hee ... and as much as they love their children, I'm sure they enjoyed their night off as parents. [Source]

But the Spanish jaunt only lasted one night and Brangelina made their way back to Prague where they could get back to business as usual:

Which, of course, means that the little tykes had to be dropped off at school like usual. Just another day in Brangelina's world. [Source, Source]

Um, I realize that David Beckham might consider himself one of the world's greatest futbol players but I'm not sure he's well suited for football the way it is played here in the US. Check out these cute pics of Becks shooting a new Adidas ad campaign in Madrid, Spain where he tries his hand at American Football with New Orleans Saints player Reggie Bush (not pictured):

With his move to Los Angeles imminent, it seems David Beckham is keen to embrace the culture of his new home town in every possible way. So much so, that it seems Becks may even have swapped the career which has seen him captain the England team 58 times for a stint in American football. The football star was pictured out in Madrid wearing shoulder pads (no, not another fashion faux pas this time) and helmet for a game of American football - the national sport of his future home. But footie fans need not worry. The outfit was just part of a stunt used in an advertising campaign for Adidas in which Becks tries out American football and New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush tried out soccer. It was all part of a competition to see which was better - Futbol or Football. Judging by how good Beckham looks in his oversized outfit - it's a tough call by anyone's standards. What a cute ad ... but it sounds a lot like that Nike commercial where Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan squared off between dancing and basketball. Now, I love me some Becks but he is just not cut out to wear the big helmets and big safety pads that American Football requires. I like him best when he's running around the field in his little jersey and shorts combo ... and I'm sure I'm not alone here :D [Source]

Here are a couple of cute pics of Reese Witherspoon out with her daughter Ava at the Westfield mall in Century City, CA last week:

And by "cute" I mean "Wow, look at the way that Reese is stuffing her face in that food wrapper in order to lap up every last morsel of that sandwich." Aren't they both just so darling? [Source]

Hmm ... are we looking at another pregnancy for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw?

Judging by the size of that bump, I'd say they're already about 6 months along now. [Source]

Boo! Hearts are breaking all over now that the Sexiest Bachelor alive Matthew McConaughey seems to have really taken a liking to his new Brazilian chick, WhatsHerName ... the pair have been spending a lot of time together ...

... he's even started including her in his jogging routine. This is just so un-Matthew like ... so unsavory. What's next, is he going to start wearing a shirt again? [Source]

Here are a few pics of Jonathan Rhys Meyers taking a bit of a break between takes on the set of the second season of the Showtime hit The Tudors:

You know, this look would work on JRM even if he weren't shooting a period piece. There's something about the man that just makes pinky rings and flowing cape-y coats work. [Source]

Here are a few amazing photos of Tori Amos at her American Doll Posse Tour concert stop in Warsaw, Poland last week:

The tour is making its way thru Europe before it heads to The Montreaux Jazz Festival and then Australia next month. If you are at all interested in checking out setlists, seeing other photos or reading tour reports, make sure you check out the frequently updated Tour page at [Source]

Hayden Panettiere is the cover girl for Entertainment Weekly's 100 Stars We Love/Must List issue out now ... but here are the other 2 amazing photos of Hayden from inside the mag:

She is deffo the It Hollywood "It" Girl of the moment. Who knew that Hollywood "It" Girls could be clean and sober and still have huge success? Someone should pass along the memo to Paris, Lindsay and Brit Brit. [Source]

Rihanna is also featured in this same issue of Entertainment Weekly and here are her amazing pics:

Finally, Rihanna has hit GOLD with her latest album Good Girl Gone Bad because you can't go 5 minutes without hearing her mega-hit Umbrella on the radio, on TV or on the street. Her song was the most played song at the NYC Pride Parade yesterday (she is big with the gays) ... it seemed as if every other float was blaring Umbrella as it passed by. She definitely has the hot summer song of 2007. Hello, it's my ringtone so you know it's the shizz. [Source]

Speaking of the hotness, here are a few pics of Megan Fox, one of the stars of the new movie Transformers, from the pages of the new issue of Maxim magazine:

Damn. She definitely looks sexy in these pics. Miss Fox really knows how to work the sexy vibe without lookin' trashy ... but she gets kinda close. Hot! [Source]

And finally, here is another star of the new Transformers movie, Josh Duhamel, in the pages of Best Life magazine:

I'm not at all familiar with Best Life magazine but if they keep featuring hotties like this I might have to check it out more often. A wet Josh Duhamel is an even hotter Josh Duhamel. [Source]

Les News:
Yesterday's Pride Parade here in NYC was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I think it helped immensely that the parade passed right below David's apartment window. We were able to watch and hear the whole thing from the comfort of hanging out of his windows. Here are a few of the pictures I snapped of the parade yesterday:

Click HERE to check out all 200+ pics that I snapped yesterday.

After the parade, David and I met up with his Aunt and her partner to see the play The Fabulous Life of a Size Zero. This play/showcase is presented in association with and is playing until July 1 at the DR2 Theater in Union Square.

David was excited for us to see the show because his site is featured heavily in the show. The play features Anna Chlumsky, Amy Evinger, Gillian Jacobs, Christopher Sloan and Brian J. Smith in a tale surrounding one girl's quest to achieve absolute perfection ... by using size zero celebrities as her guide. Over all, the show is very funny and very timely, referencing things that other bloggers and I talk about on a daily basis. I quite liked the show, even tho the ending kinda smacks you across the face in order to drive home the point that absolute perfection is impossible to achieve. I'm so glad I got to see this show, especially since the producers really went out of their way to get David and his site on board.

Today David and I are spending our day out in the city and tonight we are going to try and meet up with some new friends for drinks. And ... I guess that is all. I'm out.
