Britney Spears Denies Pregnancy Rumors After Seacrest Stumble

jueves, 30 de abril de 2009 |

Britney Spears has angrily denied rumors about a third pregnancy, after Ryan Seacrest announced that he had heard the singer was expecting on his popular radio show.

The ‘Circus’ star already has two children from her previous marriage to backup dancer Kevin Federline, Sean Preston, and Jayden James. Both boys currently live with their father.

The allegations brought anger from Britney’s camp, and her spokesperson said it was absolutely untrue.

“She’s absolutely not pregnant. I have no idea where this ridiculous rumor came from,” he said in an interview with Perez Hilton.

“Ryan has communication with our camp and could have checked this before saying it.”

This is one of many pregnancy rumors that have followed the pop princess in recent years. Given how eager she was to report her past two, it is doubtful that she would keep a third under wraps.

Britney Spears begging for dad distance?

miércoles, 22 de abril de 2009 |

Britney Spears is "crying out for help".

The 'Circus' singer is desperately trying to escape from her controlling father, her former attorney's lawyer told a Los Angeles court yesterday (21.04.09).

Jamie Spears - who took legal control of his troubled daughter's personal and professional affairs last year - is trying to obtain permanent restraining orders against the singer's former manager Sam Lutfi, attorney Jon Eardley and lover Adnan Ghalib.

Eardley's lawyer Roger Diamond wants Britney to testify in court because he believes she is being held prisoner by her father.

He said: "Britney Spears is crying out for help".

The 27-year-old singer's legal team refutes the claims, calling the men "predators" who have "patently threatened and continually harassed" Britney.

The temporary restraining orders against all three men were extended until April 28, when the judge will hear rebuttal arguments before making a final decision.

Britney is currently performing in 'The Circus Starring Britney Spears', her first concert tour in five years.


While Ashley Tisdale seems to be spending a lot of time lately with music-video director Scott Speer, it might be a little premature to call them a couple.

"They've been enjoying hanging out together," a friend of the pair tells People. "Ashley's just easing back into the dating world."

The 23-year-old Tisdale was recently photographed with Speer at Los Angeles International Airport, where she was holding a large bouquet of flowers as her companion pushed a luggage cart. However, Tisdale quickly dismissed rumors that the pair were an item.

"I'm not in a relationship. I'm single," she told E!

"He's a really hot, good friend of mine," added the "High School Musical" star.

Tisdale is fresh off a recent breakup with dancer Jared Murillo, whom she had dated since 2007, so it's understandable if she's not ready to jump back into the dating scene. But Tisdale and Speer also have a relationship that dates back to 2007, which is when they first worked together professionally. The pair also teamed up again recently as Speer directed the just-released video for Tisdale's new single "It's Alright, It's OK."

Whether that has spilled over into a romance remains to be seen, but Tisdale does admit to E! that they make for a perfect duo on the video front.

"We have a really good, creative relationship," she said.


Jennifer Aniston's rumoured new love interest Gerard Butler could yet turn out to be a John Mayer-sized “player,” according to insiders.

As we reported previously, the Marley & Me star is said to have rebounded from her singer-songwriter beau into the arms of the Scottish hunk, after sharing a special connection with him at last year's Toronto film festival.

But whilst Jen is described as “smitten” and keen for a serious romance, Gerard is apparently less committed to their fledgling relationship.

“He’s very excited to see her again and wants to hook up with her again and hang out. [But] he’s a total player,” says a source.

Here we go again...


Justin Timberlake is getting some pressure to propose marriage to his girlfriend Jessica Biel by her father, according to the National Enquirer. A source claims that Jessica’s dad Jon Biel has grown impatient with JT since they’ve been dating over two years already. The insider dished:

“Jessica’s dad is really putting heat on Justin to marry her.

Jon’s been calling Justin a lot lately for man-to-man talks.”

The source claimed that JT was requested to “do the right thing” and explained:

“But Justin is running out of time and excuses. Jon has made it clear he’s growing impatient.”

Jessica’s dad even allegedly told him he’d make things easy:

“Jon told Justin that he’ll cover the entire cost of the wedding.”

Yikes, JT better figure out what he’s going to do with his relationship because it’s not going to get easier with his possible future in-laws.

The hits easily surpassed the 18.5million that Obama racked up during his January inauguration ceremony.

The Scot, 48, is now just 18million views shy of the all time record on the website currently held by Judson Laiply's Evolution of Dance, reports The Sun.

The star from Blackburn, West Lothian, is now hailed as the website's fastest mover of all time.

A YouTube spokeswoman Julie Supan said: 'She's really the world's singer right now.'

But it seems not everyone is a fan.

US TV star Rosie O'Donnell attacked the fame hopeful saying: 'Here is this freaky miss, a fat, ugly girl – like Shrek come to life – directing energy towards her soul.'


Lindsay Lohan admits she wanted to be like Britney Spears when she was a teenager.

“I like Notting Hill a lot,” Lindsay said. “I also often stay with a friend in Chelsea. I’d move there tomorrow. I prefer London of New York. The people are less judgmental.”


Kristen Stewart knew Robert Pattinson would make the perfect Edward Cullen as soon as she met him.

Even though she has a boyfriend Kristen can see why girls fall head over heels in love with Rob.

Kristen told The Improper: "What makes him so appealing is that he's so sympathetic.

"During the audition, (Rob) was organically feeling the pain and fear of what his character was going through.

"I think that's why girls love him."

We wanted to know what makes you swoon over Rob and 9000 of you voted in our poll.

In first place was Rob's personality, followed by his voice and his hair.

His acting ability came in fourth place. In last place was his fashion sense with 663 votes.

Watch out, boys. Lindsay Lohan is back on the prowl and you might be next!

The Sun is reporting that the recently single star was spotted desperately trying to catch the attention of the actor at Hollywood hotspot MyHouse on Wednesday night. Leonardo is currently dating supermodel Bar Rafaeli.

Dang, girl! Looks like Linds cuts right to the chase these days.

Let us know in the comments: Do you think LiLo and Leo hooked up? And do you think Sam Ronson and Lindsay are done for good?


Robert Pattinson wants a real woman


Robert Pattinson doesn't mind being single.

It is alleged that the New Moon actor doesn't want to date bimbos or girls who are only interested in him because he is famous.

Rob told Seventeen magazine that fans shouldn't expect to see him surrounded by girls at a club anytime soon.

He said: "No! I don't even get into those places because I look like a bum when I go out.

"The paparazzi will all stand there filming me stuck outside clubs.

"I tell the bouncer, "Listen, these guys are taking photos of me — let me in!"

"It happens all the time."

When Rob does go out at night he is usually with Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of the New Moon cast.

They enjoy going out for meals together and watching bands perform.


Fergie Reveals Bald Patch During Video Shoot


Fergie failed to dispel rumours she's thinning on top while filming a video for her new clothing line in Malibu at the weekend.

There was no missing the newlywed singer's scalp exposure as she posed on Malibu Pier before production moved on to the beach.

Her thinning hair has prompted gossip that her newly-brunette barnet could be feeling the strain of frequent dye jobs and/or extensions.

Aside from genetics, stress and extreme dieting can also be a factor in female hair loss.

Gaping centre parting notwithstanding, Fergie looked stunning in a simple outfit of jeans and black top.


Father denies Slumdog child sale


The father of a Slumdog Millionaire child actress has denied trying to sell her in what he called a "dirty" undercover operation by a UK newspaper.

Rafiq Qureshi said he had not accepted a deal to sell nine-year-old Rubina Ali into adoption.

The News of the World said Mr Qureshi had demanded £200,000 from its reporters, who were posing as a wealthy family from Dubai looking to adopt.

Mr Qureshi told the BBC the media had "made fun of our poverty".

"They tricked us into this fakery but we came out unscathed," said Rubina's father, who is a carpenter in Mumbai (Bombay).

Rubina portrays the youngest version of the leading lady Latika in the Oscar-laden film.

'Great temptation'

The News of the World said one of its staff had contacted Mr Qureshi and told him he was acting for a wealthy Arab sheikh who wanted to adopt Rubina and take her to live in Dubai.

It said Mr Qureshi's brother-in-law, Rajan More, who speaks better English, had talked of "around £50,000" in compensation.

The paper said that in a later meeting Mr Qureshi tried to increase this to £200,000 ($292,000).

It said Mr Qureshi was unhappy with the money received from the film and wanted an escape route out of the slums.

The newspaper published photographs of Rubina and her father in a meeting with its reporters.

Mr Qureshi agreed to speak to the BBC News website on Monday.

In a lengthy interview, he said he had been trapped into a situation of "great temptation" but he firmly denied accepting any deal to sell his daughter or agree for her to be adopted.

by the BBC, phone calls were made requesting a meeting with Rubina and her father, and the two parties met three times from Thursday to Saturday.

Mr Qureshi said: "In the phone calls they said a wealthy Arab couple had been moved to see the plight of Rubina on al-Jazeera TV. The sheikh and his wife were very upset to see their plight and decided to help them out. And then we agreed to meet them."

Mr Qureshi said he had met two men and a "memsaab", a term often used by the poor in India for a white woman.

They had three meetings, two in hotels in Mumbai and the middle one on the reporters' visit to the family's hut in the Bandra slums. The last meeting happened on Saturday afternoon.

Mr Qureshi said it was during this last meeting that he was asked to talk to someone on the phone, who thanked him for letting Rubina be adopted.

"They made a call to someone, introducing him as the memsaab's husband, the sheikh saab, and asked me to talk to him. In broken Hindi he thanked me for letting Rubina come to Dubai to live.

"It was then it occurred to me they were making a deal on my child. I put the phone down and told them we were leaving the hotel."

'Self respect'

But the family did stay to have tea. Mr Qureshi said: "At this time they went to the memsaab and came back to us with an offer of 500,000 rupees as an advance. We refused, but they kept saying if we accepted the offer the money can be arranged in five minutes."

Mr Qureshi said the family went back home after this and "when I woke up on Sunday morning the story on me was on all the TV channels".

He said he was shocked to see the three people were actually reporters.

"I switched off my mobile phone because I knew there will be calls from the media and I didn't have any faith in the media after what I went through on the weekend.

"They played dirty with us, but we didn't accept any money from them. My daughter is not for sale."

Dinesh, a middleman present at the meetings, said he had spoken to people who transpired to be undercover reporters because of Mr Qureshi's lack of English.

He denied any deal was cut to sell Rubina and also rejected accusations that he tried to convince Rubina's father to accept the deal.

He feared the story would bring a bad name to Rubina's family.

Mr Qureshi's neighbours were surprised at the media claims.

One, Mohammed Shakeel, was outraged: "We know how much he loves his daughter. We may be poor but we have a lot of self-respect. We don't sell our children no matter how big the lure is."

Priti Patkar, a director of Prerna, an NGO for child welfare, said: "Talking to Rubina was unethical on the part of the media.

"Local police and child welfare committees should immediately look into the matter and take appropriate action against whoever is guilty."

Delhi-based Save the Children official, Shireen Miller, said that child abuse and exploitation was a "major issue in this part of the country and there needs to be strict laws to protect such families from agents and middlemen".


Amy Winehouse has shocked sunbathers on the island of St Lucia after branding wounds down her leg like something out of a warzone.

The char-grilled singer made no attempt to cover the eye-watering pink and white fleshy wounds as she revealed her singed limb in her hot pants under the blazing Caribbean sunshine.

A string of reports claimed the volatile star had a torrid mishap with a cigarette but friends of the star say her raw melted skin was the result of a cooking disaster.

It seems the singer, 25, has been rustling up her own supper despite staying in a plush private villa in the resort.

Winehouse was said to be making some home made pasta to bolster her new size 10 frame when she suddenly found herself in hell's kitchen.

'Amy was making herself a bowl of pasta when the pot felt over and she was scolded by boiling water' her friend told Metro.

Ouch! Then keep that leg under the sun brolly Amy and slip, slop, slap!


Camera-toting woman arrested at Britney Spears' home

viernes, 17 de abril de 2009 |

Los Angeles police arrested a woman Thursday morning who they say was caught peeking into the windows of singer Britney Spears' Calabasas, Calif. home, according to the Associated Press. Miranda Tozier-Robbins, 26, who was wearing camouflage and toting a camera at the time of her arrest, was cited for trespassing and disorderly conduct and then released.

Tozier-Robbins wrote about her American Idol audition experience on her blog Idol Fever Approaching. In her profile for, which hosts her blog, she writes, "I have issues but I'm working on them. Other than that I like chillin', listening to music, watching tv, and playing video games."


Samantha Ronson has said there are "no hard feelings" between her and former girlfriend Lindsay Lohan.

The pair endured a high-profile break up earlier this month.

But DJ Sam has indicated that their parting of ways was more amicable than media reports would suggest.

Speaking to People magazine, she refuted rumours that she and Lindsay suffered a dramatic fall out, and were no longer on speaking terms.

Sam told the magazine: "I don't talk about my personal life, but I will say that any rumours that I hate Lindsay are false.

"She's an am amazing girl and I wish her all the best. It's not that dramatic."


Robert Pattinson 'Smells Like Roses'


Robert Pattinson's New Moon co-star Alex Meraz has defended the actor against allegations he smells a bit off.

On-set sources were quoted as saying that the gloriously-haired actor has been stinking up filming on the Twilight sequel because he doesn't shower.

Rob denied this and pointed out that he hadn't actually set foot on the Vancover set at the time.

And castmate Alex seconds this.

"He smells like roses!" he tells E!online.

"The first time I met him, I was like, 'Dude, you smell fantastic!' I don't know where people get this stuff from."

Probably from people like the fan who spotted a dishevelled Rob at Los Angeles airport on Monday: "I was so disappointed. Rob's hair was a mess, he was so skinny and he was chewing his fingernails."

No word yet on his aroma...


As if we needed another sign that Miley Cyrus is taking over the world, the 'tween pop phenom is now dominating the Billboard Hot 100. Six songs off the soundtrack for Hannah Montana: The Movie -- which just so happened to rule the box office this past weekend -- span this week's singles chart from No. 8 to No. 88, including Miley's "The Climb," BFF Taylor Swift's track "Crazier," and Miley's duet with dear old dad Billy Ray, "Butterfly Fly Away." While the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" held on to the top spot, the Hannah Montana tunes are climbing at a steady rate. Miley's "Hoedown Throwdown" has seen big success in the past few days, with a 119 percent rise in downloads. And with a song title like that, who could be surprised?

How about you, Music Mixers? Have you purchased songs off the Hannah Montana soundtrack? Or are you simply too busy bracing for the Miley-induced apocalypse?


Susan Boyle debut song uncovered


An early recording of Britain's Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle singing Cry Me a River for charity has emerged on the internet.

Her version of ballad Cry Me A River was included on the Music for a Millennium Celebration disc in 1999.

Just 1,000 copies of the CD were funded by Whitburn Community Council.

Ms Boyle, from Blackburn in West Lothian, has become a worldwide sensation after her voice stunned judges on the TV talent show.

Reduced to tears

Around 20,000 people have already viewed the early recording on YouTube.

So far over 19 million have watched her rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, on Saturday's show.

Actress Demi Moore said she was reduced to tears by the performance after watching it with husband Ashton Kutcher.

The story of the unemployed church volunteer has made headlines around the world, and she has featured on major news programmes in the US.

It has been reported that she has been asked to appear as a guest on Oprah Winfrey's talk show.

West Lothian Council featured a clip of the song - thought to be her only previous recording - on its website.

'Absolutely thrilled'

The council has been inundated with messages of support for Ms Boyle, whose odds of winning Britain's Got Talent have been slashed by bookmakers.

A Ladbrokes spokesman said they are offering the "shortest odds we've ever offered at this early stage in the show".

Council leader Peter Johnston said local people were "absolutely thrilled" for Ms Boyle. He added: "Her voice is simply magic."

Speaking from her home, Ms Boyle said: "I just take it all in my stride, I'm enjoying it. I haven't had time to think."

Asked what it meant to her to get such support from Moore and Kutcher, Ms Boyle said: "That's overwhelming. That's something else."

Questioned about her chances of winning, she replied: "I can only do my best, like everybody else."

But judge Simon Cowell has said she has not won the competition yet.

Speaking on GMTV on Friday, he said: "There are some acts that you haven't seen yet, it's not quite the one horse race you are going to think this is."

The prize for winning the show is a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

Teenage dancer George Sampson won last year.


Britney Spears dismisses Subway marriage claim

miércoles, 15 de abril de 2009 |

Britney Spears has been forced to deny she's accepted a marriage proposal from one of her exes in a Subway sandwich shop.

Gossips claim the singer, 27, hooked up with John Sundahl, her fella back from 2007, after he got down on one knee after they reconnected when she performed in New Jersey.

An insider claimed: 'Britney and John used to date, but they reconnected after her show in New Jersey, and now they're engaged. He got down on one knee in a Subway sandwich shop in Santa Monica a week ago and proposed.'

Not so says Brit, whose team have rubbished the claims insisting she is 'not engaged' and was 'not proposed to in Subway'.


Zac Efron shows off his buff body in a new retro shoot for GQ.

Sporting a quiff that Robert Pattinson would be proud of, the High School Musical hottie follows up the Twilight heartthrob's spread in the April issue with a few matinee idol poses of his own.

When he's not flashing those brilliant blues in a fitted 50s-style suit, Zac is swinging shirtless from a parking meter and leaping across a row of parked cars.

And whilst Rob attracted criticism for smoking in his GQ pictures, Zac is content to chew on a tooth pick.
The 17 Again star addresses his pretty-boy image in the accompanying interview, specifically the rumours that he wears false eyelashes.

"If somebody can find any photo that shows me wearing false eyelashes, I will give them a f***ing million dollars. That's bulls***," says the 21-year-old.

He does, however, admit to wearing make-up to "cover [his] zits".


Vanessa Hudgens is "in love" with Angelina Jolie.

The actress - who is dating her 'High School Musical' co-star Zac Efron - is obsessed with the 'Wanted' star and dreams of following in her footsteps.

She told Self magazine: "I'm in love with Angelina Jolie. Everything she does, I adore.

"I'd like to do an action film where I could kick someone's a*s. I want to be strong and empowered. I want to shock everybody."

The petite actress believes she has the physical attributes needed to take on the gruelling demands of action stunts and has the ability to "climb anything".

She said: "I have really strong legs. I inherited them from my dad, who has tree stumps for legs, basically. I've got big calves that look good. When I wear heels, it looks like I've worked out my legs a lot, which is why I love them. I also have a big, big big toe. I call it my goat toe. I can climb anything."


Lily Allen in love with John Mayer?

Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf, who got his left hand injured in a car Accident last year, has revealed that his hand may never heal completely because he will only regain 80 percent functioning of the hand.

"I've had screws and plates put in," Us Weekly quoted him as telling Entertainment Weekly. "They put a screw in one of my knuckles. And they shaved a piece of bone off my hip and made a [bone for my] finger out of it,” he added.

LaBeouf, whose driving license suspended for a year after the horrific collision, revealed that he was on his third surgery. "That's coming up in a week or two [from April 2]. My middle finger is still crooked as a f---ing noodle, so they've gotta straighten it out and put a screw in it,” he said.

"I'll be able to make a fist again. There's a knuckle I'll never be able to move again, but that's probably the only permanent damage, other than the scarring,” he added.

Lindsay Lohan hits back in dating spoof

martes, 14 de abril de 2009 |

Publicity-shy Lindsay Lohan has taken her split with Samantha Ronson public, posting a spoof 'singles' video advert in a fresh 'search for love'.

The self-titled 'crazy' actress hits out at Ronson in a thinly veiled attack, after hinting the Ronsons did indeed slap her with a restraining order.

Watch Lindsay's love message below

The 'sassy' redhead also harpoons talk that she's an off-the-wall broke alcoholic in the minute and half long clip posted on the Funny Or Die website.

Starting her ad she tells the camera: 'Hi, my Name is Lindsay and I am searching for love.

I'm recently single…I think, and I am looking for someone who I can spend the rest of my life with or at least the rest of my probation with.

A little bit about me…I'm an actress, a singer an entrepreneur and I single handily keep 90% of all gossip websites in business.'

She then addresses her fun-loving criminal reputation in a facetious quip telling: 'I would define my personality as creative, a bit of a night owl, a workaholic, a shopaholic and according to the State of California and alcoholic, as well as a threat to all security guards if they work in hotels.'

Hitting back at claims she was sponging off DJ Ronson, 31, she says: 'And to put all those rumours to rest I am not broke. I actually have over 400 dollars in the bank and 20,000 Marlboro miles which I am very proud of.'

Hinting she may be ready to go back to men after the end of the lesbian romance, she says: 'I am looking for a compatible mate who likes a night on the town as long as, he or she, is driving of course, likes ankle monitoring bracelets and doesn't have family members quick to issue restraining orders.

Swigging on a soft drink, the 22-year-old continues: 'The perfect mate loves long walks on the beach, car chases on the PCH, antiquing and passing out in Cadillac escapades.

So if you think you can handle a redhead with a little bit of sass and by that I mean a red head that's 'crazy', I mean don't pretend like you don't know me, we've all read about it.

Promising some fun in the bedroom, Lilo finishes up playing on her iPhone and telling: 'We'll crash a few parties, a car or two but at the end of the day I promise you I never lose my Google hits. Just my underwear.

You can reach me at 61-26-79 or you can find me on the cover of Us Weekly 'cos 'I'm so alone.' If you didn't want out attention Lindsay, you've certainly got it now!


Jack Tweed jailed


Jack Tweed has been jailed for 12 weeks for assaulting a taxi driver.

Jade Goody's grieving widower was sentenced this morning (14.04.09) at Harlow Magistrates court in Essex, where he was told he will serve half his sentence in jail before being released on licence.

Passing the sentence - the second assault charge Jack has been found guilty of in six months - Chairwoman of the magistrates, Margaret Webb, said: "We have borne in mind the recent change in your personal circumstances and have reflected this in the length of the sentence, which would otherwise have been 18 weeks."

Jack's sentencing for the assault on driver Stephen Wilkins after a night out in Epping, Essex, in May 2008 had already been moved so he could attend the funeral of his wife, who died of cancer in March, and was buried on April 4.

Jack, 21, had earlier been found guilty at Epping Magistrates court on March 3, shortly before his wife's passing. He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £455 and £200 to his victim.

Jack's lawyer, Tania Panagiotopoulou, told the court today: "Mr Tweed is 21. He was 20 at the time of this offence that took place 11 months ago. There has been no re-offending since that date

"He has had to mature, and mature very quickly, in the last few months.

"To say that he is a changed man since May 2008 is perhaps an understatement. He has endured with dignity and maturity very difficult personal circumstances that have been well documented."

Jack was also jailed in September 2008 for an assault on a 16-year-old with a golf club. He was released in January subject to a curfew, which stated he had to be at his mother's house in Essex between 7pm and 7am every day.


Gibson's wife files for divorce


Actor Mel Gibson's wife has filed for divorce after 28 years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences.

Robyn Gibson is seeking a share of the money and assets the Braveheart star, 53, has earned during his career.

As it is thought no prenuptial deal was signed, Robyn could receive half of the star's reported $640m (£432m) wealth under Californian law.

The couple, who were married in June 1980, have seven children together but only one is under 18.

Details of how the couple's assets will be divided were not revealed in the papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court.

Mrs Gibson is also seeking jewellery, earnings and assets she accrued after the couple separated and wants her husband to make support payments and to meet her lawyer's costs.

In addition, she has requested joint custody of their youngest son, Tom, aged 10.

Privacy call

The actor filed a response to the divorce saying the two had been separated since 26 August 2006.

Legal documents show he does not want to make support payments and wants lawyer's fees be paid out of the couple's joint property.

In a joint statement, the couple said: "Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so."

Born in the US and raised in Australia, Mel Gibson rose to fame after starring in the 1979 film Mad Max.

He went on to star in hit films Lethal Weapon and Braveheart, which won him best director and best picture Oscars.

The star has adopted a lower public profile since his controversial 2004 film The Passion of the Christ and his arrest in July 2006 for drink-driving.

Gibson pleaded no contest to the charge and was given three years' probation.


Jennnifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's date angers Angelina Jolie

While Jennifer Aniston has been in Manhattan shooting for 'The Baster' she was determined to arrange a get-together with Brad Pitt, who was watching the kids at the Waldorf-Astoria while Angelina Jolie filmed 'Salt', the Star magazine reported.

"Jen made two appointments at the hotel's Guerlain Spas, hoping she would run into Brad" However she wasn't leaving it all to chance so she gave him a call.

"Jen called Brad to say she was in New York and would love to see him," the insider revealed.

"She wanted to talk to him about some things on her mind. Brad was only happy to catch up," the insider added.

However Angelina was not so pleased with the idea and she reportedly yelled at Pitt for half an hour.

"When Angelina arrived back at their hotel after a long, grueling day on the set, Brad let her know he'd decided to meet Jen for lunch. But for Angie, it wasn't just a simple lunch date. It was yet another instance of Jen crowding their relationship. Angie was blindsided, shocked and hurt."

"She yelled at him for a half-hour. She walked out of the room and told Brad, 'I can't even look at you right now,'" the insider added.

Angelina’s chauffeur reportedly picked her up, and she rode around the city for hours fuming in anger.


Lindsay Lohan needs help


Lindsay Lohan needs "psychiatric help", say her friends.

The 'Mean Girls' actress has been left devastated by her split from DJ Samantha Ronson and pals fears she is on the brink of a breakdown.

A source said: "Lindsay is on hiatus with her publicist because she's not working or booking jobs. She is completely unmanageable.

"Lindsay needs to get psychiatric help. Her friends are really sad for her, but she's out of control, and now she's all alone."

Lindsay, who says she is in "hell" without Samantha, is struggling to cope with the break-up and friends have blamed her mother Dina Lohan for not offering the 22-year-old star enough support.

The source added: "Dina is begging Lindsay's friends to go there and help her. All of Lindsay's life, Dina never acted like a role model. She only ever wanted to be her friend. Lindsay keeps getting used."

Following their split last week, Samantha changed the locks on the Hollywood Hills home she shared with Lindsay and was even said to be seeking a restraining order against her, although she has denied the claims.

Lindsay has insisted the year-long romance is not over, claiming the pair are just "on a break".


Cancer-stricken Patrick Swayze has sparked concerns after he was snapped looking extremely weak and fragile.

The National Enquirer splashed the photographs in its current edition revealing an alarming weight loss following Swayze's battle against pancreatic cancer. The Dirty Dancing star is believed to weigh just 47.6 kilos. Despite his alarming weight loss, the actor is reported in "good spirits" and is taking his battle "one day at a time," reports the Daily Telegraph.

Actress Whoopi Goldberg, who starred with Swayze in the 1990 film Ghost says he doesn''t have an "expiration date on his backside." "You know what, he’s doing what everybody else is doing, he’s taking it one day at a time,” she said. “He does not have an expiration date on his backside - none of us do we just know at some point it’s going to happen and that’s how he’s looking at it,” she added.


No more drama: That is Samantha Ronson's philosophy, according to sources close to the celebrity deejay, who recently spilt from girlfriend Lindsay Lohan.

"Lindsay is extremely protective and jealous and needs an enormous amount of attention, and it's stressful for the world to be watching them," a source close to the Ronson family tells PEOPLE. In terms of the high-profile breakup, "[Samantha] takes it pretty good – she acts tougher than she is. She just wants the drama to end."

Though Ronson's family is hoping this latest split will be for good, the pair's close social circle makes the separation that much more difficult, says the source. "Both Samantha and Lindsay could use a break and since there is so much crossover with their friends, it's been hard. Their lives are so intertwined."

Lohan's Personality Sparks Concern
As for the Ronson family's inquiries into obtaining a restraining order – which did not involve Samantha herself – the family source says they are worried about Lohan's fiery personality. "They wanted to know what their options were if she does something crazy," says the source. "Lindsay can be a loose cannon."

Still, another source close to Ronson says that the deejay is protective of Lohan and doesn't want to jump on "the anti-Lindsay bandwagon."

"Sam broke up with Lindsay, but it doesn't mean she hates her or wants to see her hurt any worse than she is," says the source. "She is over Lindsay and over all the drama, but still, she refuses to trash-talk her. She just wants to walk away gracefully."

As for Lohan, she has been spending time with family and friends. On Thursday night she was spotted at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood where she sipped on water and appeared in high spirits, smiling and laughing with a large group of pals.


Britney Spears Walks Off Stage During Concert

jueves, 9 de abril de 2009 |

The show didn't go on in Vancouver Wednesday night after Britney Spears pulled the plug on her sold-out Circus concert 15 minutes and three songs into her performance – departing the stage and leaving the audience in the GM Place in the dark for more than half an hour. Boos ensued.

Cigarette smoke from the crowd was blamed, with a female voice announcing to the crowd, "The building is awfully smoky. It is uncomfortable for everyone on stage, including Ms. Spears. Please extinguish all cigarettes – this is a non-smoking building, and the show will resume when the smoke on the stage is cleared," the Vancouver Sun reports.

Until the agitated crowd settled down, GM Place was filled with piped-in intermission music played at hockey games – which, one concertgoer told PEOPLE, left the fans "really pissed off. The break in the concert ruined it for everyone. The vibe was gone."

When she did return, Spears, 27, delivered a well-received Bollywood take on "Me Against the Music," followed by "Everytime" – during which she asked the crowd "What's up, Vancouver?" before she again left the stage, some 90 seconds before the end of the song.

The concert concluded with Spears singing "Womanizer" and advising the still-restless crowd, "Vancouver, don't smoke weed." Her sign-off was also peppered with a couple of X-rated expletives and a warning to "drive safe."

After the show, a statement was posted on the singer's Web site: "We want to apologize to all the fans who attended our Vancouver show tonight for the brief pause in Britney's set. Crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue."

Spears kicked off her Circus tour of the North America and England in New Orleans on March 3. Her father and attorneys are exploring the possibility of expanding the tour, says AP.


Don't cry, Madonna, says Guy Ritchie

| reports that the two had got divorced in January and the singer cited his "unreasonable behaviour" behind their break up. But the two have been able to talk again when she broke down while talking to her son Rocco on the phone.

"Civil conversations between them have been few and far between in the past year. But over the last week things have improved. Guy had Rocco over for a visit when Em (Madonna) called to see if he was okay, as she always does when she is away from the kids. Rocco was speaking to her and suddenly turned to Guy and said, 'Daddy, daddy. mummy is crying'. He then handed Guy the phone," said a source close to them.

"It's unusual for Em to turn on the waterworks, but this has really upset her. Explaining to Rocco why Mercy wasn't coming home has been difficult. Guy was incredibly sympathetic, calmed her down and told her to be happy with the family she had," added the source.


Robert Pattinson's new food addiction


Robert Pattinson loves eating spaghetti after filming his New Moon scenes.

He heads over to the Glowball and Satay Bar with Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene and the rest of the New Moon cast.

The restaurant's manager told Ace Showbiz: "Robert enjoyed our special spaghetti dish which we make with Kobe beef meatballs - he has ordered it each time he dined with us.

"All the cast members who visited us were very friendly but we are used to having actors pop in because there is a lot of film production in Vancouver now.

"Robert seemed like a very chilled-out guy and despite the fact he is well on his way to becoming a huge star he was very polite and well-behaved."

The actors who play the Cullen family love hanging out together and catching up off set.


Lindsay Lohan in 'restraining order' drama

martes, 7 de abril de 2009 |

Lindsay Lohan's split from girlfriend Samantha Ronson just turned nasty amid speculation the DJ's family are trying to take a restraining order out against the actress.

Beverly Hills police reportedly say the DJ's mum and sister popped into see how they could take out a restraining order just three days after it was claimed Ronson had Lindsay barred from her little sister Charlotte's party at Bar Marmont in West Hollywood.

'They were directed to the court to get a restraining order,' Beverly Hills Sgt. Nutall told US press.

The family's run to authorities came after Lohan admitted she and her girlfriend were done... well, for now at least.

She told E! news: 'We are taking a brief break so I can focus on myself.'

Her confession came as Ronson changed her MySpace relationship status to 'single'.

The split comes follows the lovers latest spat public on Twitter over the weekend, reportedly slinging allegations of 'cheating' and 'drug taking'.

But friends of Ronson, 31, are determined for her to stay away from Lilo, 22, for good this time.

A friend of the couple claimed: 'Sam's family has made her swear that it's really over.'

'They are giving her all the support they can to keep her away from Lindsay.'

Another friend of Ronson's said: 'Lindsay is going to try and twist the situation in her favor, but Sam clearly left her, not the other way around.'


Madonna's adoption hopes boost


Mercy's uncle Peter Baneti said he would fight custody attempts by James Kambewa, 24, who claims to be the three-year-old's dad, reported

Peter said: "This man didn't care about his girlfriend, Mercy's mother, when she needed him most. He didn't even come to see his baby."

High court Judge Esimie Chombo had rejected Madonna's adoption plea as under the law prospective parents must be residents of Malawi for 18 to 24 months before adoption.


Chris Brown's arraignment was yesterday, and after almost two months of delay, the singer pleaded not guilty to assault and criminal threat charges. Attorneys are due back in court on April 29 for a preliminary hearing regarding a trial, but Brown does not have to attend.

Brown is accused of beating and threatening girlfriend Rihanna on February 8 after leaving a pre-Grammys party.


Lindsay Lohan Crashes Lily Allen's Womanizer Cover

viernes, 3 de abril de 2009 |

The audience at Lily Allen's Hollywood show last night were treated to the bizarre sight of Lindsay Lohan stumbling on stage during the singer's rendition of Britney Spears' Womanizer.

The Smile star had almost finished the song when the actress appeared seemingly from nowhere, gave Lily a hug, sang a couple of words into her microphone and then threw some awkward dance moves.

It's not known whether the pair – who hooked up when Lily was in the US last year – had planned their nano-duet but Lily appeared to largely ignore her friend, leaving Lindsay to hang around sheepishly at the back of the stage for a few seconds before disappearing off from wence she came.

Malawi court rejects Madonna adoption request


In a surprise move, a judge on Friday rejected Madonna's request to adopt a second child from Malawi and said it would set a dangerous precedent to bend rules requiring that prospective parents live here for some period.

The country's child welfare minister had come out Thursday in support of the pop superstar's application to adopt 3-year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James.

But in a lengthy ruling Friday, Judge Esme Chombo sided with critics who have said exceptions should not be made for the star who has set up a major development project for this impoverished, AIDS-stricken southern African country.

Madonna can appeal Friday's decision to Malawi's Supreme Court. There was no immediate comment from Madonna or her spokeswoman in New York.

Chombo said other foreigners had adopted children from Malawi, but the only case in which residency rules had been waived was to allow Madonna to take David Banda out of the country in 2006 before that adoption was finalized in 2008.

"It is necessary that we look beyond the petitioner ... and consider the consequences of opening the doors too wide," the judge said. "By removing the very safeguard that is supposed to protect our children, the courts ... could actually facilitate trafficking of children by some unscrupulous individuals."

The judge made clear she was not questioning Madonna's intentions, and even praised the "noble" work Madonna's charity has done to feed, educate and provide medical care for some of the more than 1 million orphans in this impoverished, AIDS-stricken country.

The judge said it was "my prayer" that the girl whom Madonna wants to adopt would benefit from such programs but said Mercy was now receiving "suitable" care in an orphanage.

Chombo said that contrasted with David's situation in 2006, when an orphanage was preparing to return the boy to his father, who had said he was struggling to care for him.

Madonna's efforts to adopt had drawn criticism from some activists, who said the little girl would be best off with relatives. Other residents credited her with giving the girl opportunities not widely available in the impoverished nation.

In court papers made public Friday, Madonna said Chifundo's grandmother was unable to care for her.

"I am able and willing to securely provide for Chifundo James and make her a permanent and established member of my family," Madonna said in the affidavit. "To deny Chifundo James the opportunity to be adopted by me could expose her to hardship and emotional trauma which is otherwise avoidable."

The girl's mother, according to the affidavit, died at age 14 not long after her baby was born Jan. 22, 2006. There was no mention of the father in the affidavit. The mother's brother is listed as having consented to the adoption.

Malawi's child welfare minister had endorsed Madonna's adoption application.

"We have close to 2 million orphans in Malawi who need help," Women and Child Welfare Development Minister Anna Kachikho told The Associated Press. "We can't look after all of them as a country. If people like Madonna adopt even one such orphan, it's one mouth less we have to feed."

Orphans usually are taken in by their extended families in Africa, but AIDS and other diseases have taken a toll on those who might have traditionally provided support. In villages across the continent, frail elderly grandmothers do their best to care for children, but many end up in orphanages or on the streets.

Malawi, with a population of 12 million, is among the poorest countries in the world, with rampant disease and hunger, aggravated by periodic droughts and crop failure.

The U.N. says 1 million Malawian children have lost one or both parents, about half of them to AIDS, and estimates 18 million African children will have lost a parent to AIDS by 2010.

But critics accused Madonna of using her fame and money to fast-track the adoption process, but the singer said she had followed standard procedures. She faced similar allegations in 2006 when she brought home David, who is now 3.

A coalition of non-governmental organizations called the Human Rights Consultative Committee had criticized Madonna's adoption attempts, saying that adoption should be the last resort and that children need to be taken care of by their own family.

"Mercy James is a child who has her extended close family members alive and we urge Madonna to assist the child from right here," the coalition said earlier this week.

Madonna first traveled to Malawi in 2006 while filming a documentary on the devastating poverty and AIDS crisis. On this trip, she has been accompanied by her three children: 3-year-old David, 12-year-old daughter Lourdes and 8-year-old son Rocco.

The four have visited an orphanage where David once lived and David also saw his biological father for the first time since he left Malawi in 2006.

Madonna and Lourdes also visited a village in Malawi this week and looked over plans to build a new school there. The singer has several charity projects in Malawi.

A "tweet" may have saved a Demi Moore fan's life, CNN reported today. The actress, whose Twitter blog has some 380,000 fans, received an online threat from a woman who said she was "getting a knife, a big one that is sharp.

Going to cut my arm down the whole arm so it doesn't waste time." Moore responded to the grim statement with the comment "Hope you are joking." The unnamed 48-year-old woman's suicide threat was traced to a San Jose, Calif., home, where she was taken into custody for a 72-hour psychiatric evaluation. Moore, who was in southern France where husband Ashton Kutcher is shooting the crime drama Five Killers, later informed her Twitter followers that the San Jose police were in control of the situation, and that she was "very torn about responding or retweeting that woman's post but felt uncomfortable just letting it go."


Amy Winehouse returns to Caribbean


Amy Winehouse has jetted back to St Lucia.

The Rehab singer, who recently spent more than two months holidaying on the Caribbean island, has said she'd like to splash out on a holiday home there, reports The Sun.

Amy has previously been quoted as saying she could see herself setting up camp on the picturesque isle.

However, the 25-year-old - who is lined up to perform at the St Lucia Jazz Festival next month - is planning on doing some work as well as house hunting and enjoying the sun.

Beehived Amy, whose last album was 2006's Back To Black, was working on music during her lengthy vacation and the paper says she will be going into the studio in St Lucia next week so she can work on her next offering.


Miley Cyrus has the best of both worlds: The singer/actress is set to hit the big screen with her new Hannah Montana movie and is getting ready to perform at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards.

But as much as Cyrus loves to sing, she says she's psyched about pursuing her film career right now. "I think after people see the movie, they'll see it's really what I love," she says. "It's my main passion."

In fact, Cyrus, 16, has already lined up her next project in Hollywood. "Right now I'm working on a movie with Nicholas Sparks, which is what I want to continue to do ... to do drama," explains Cyrus. The project, The Last Song – penned by The Notebook author – is a drama about a rebellious young woman spending the summer with her estranged Dad.

Although she's ready to focus on expanding her career, Cyrus calls the big screen version of Hannah Montana "a good first step" to her goal of being taken really seriously as an actress. "It's allowing the fans to continue to stay with me and not go too far to soon, but also be able to do something that I really love, and that's film."

Cyrus admits that the transition from being a 'tween Disney star to a teen movie actress can be a challenge. "Growing up is important, and I've got to do that gracefully, but also keep myself at a good pace," she tells PEOPLE.

Alas, her hectic schedule means she won't be able to let loose after this weekend's award ceremony in Las Vegas. "I gotta work!" she says. "I'm only there for three hours! I perform and I leave, so no time to party for me!"


Is Britney Spears dating her agent?

jueves, 2 de abril de 2009 |

After dating her manager, a dancer, a paparazzi and a bodyguard, Britney Spears has now turned her attentions to her agent Jason Trawick.

Things seem to be hotting up between the pair who were linked back in May last year after they were snapped holidaying together at Mel Gibson's £12million ranch in Costa Rica.

They are now rumoured to be officially dating with Britney's dad Jamie giving the blossoming romance his blessing.

A source told The Sun: "Britney and Jason are an item. They are trying to keep it quiet in Hollywood because it's not a good reputation for an agent to have."

Trawick is an agent with the powerful William Morris talent agency that looks after the star and helped her get back on the road to recovery.

"Jamie really likes Jason. He has done everything he can to get them together."

"Jamie controls exactly who is around Britney and has allowed Jason one hundred per cent access to Britney at all times, whenever he wants he can see her."

"Within their circle Jason and Britney are quite open and kiss and cuddle in front of people they trust."

After her split with Kevin Federline in 2006, Britney started to date snapper Adnan Ghalib before having a fling with ex-manager Sam Lutfi.

She also enjoyed a brief romance with one of her bodyguards Lee.


Miley Cyrus Hacker Still At It


One might think if the FBI caught a guy who hacked into Miley Cyrus' email account and sent out racy pictures of her, they'd arrest him, or at least keep track of his whereabouts.

One might think that, but one would be wrong: reports that Josh Holly, the 19-year-old who bragged about hacking into Miley's personal business, is a free man, although still a "person of interest." The FBI apparently has no idea where Holly is right now.

A judge ordered an investigation into evidence seized by the FBI from Holly's Tennessee home, and they're still looking into it.

"We're still working on it," Special Agent Scott Augenbaum told E! News. "He hasn't been arrested."

Holly recently bragged to regarding how he's still spamming celebs' accounts on MySpace, and making around $110,000 at it. His victims include Chris Brown, Rihanna, Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy and various others.

The schemer told Wired blog "Threat Level" that he sent mass emails from the celebrities' accounts, "telling fans that the band would call their phone and send them a ring tone if they clicked on a link and entered their details." He then made between $5 to $12 off each person.

"Once I go to court I can't say 'not guilty'. There's no way I can get out of this at all," he told Threat Level. "Not even O.J.'s lawyers or Michael Jackson's lawyers can get me out of this. To be blunt, I was an idiot and I didn't delete any of my [hard drives]. I never thought they would raid me. They're going to get full proof evidence of everything that I've said I've done."


Brad Pitt has demanded Angelina Jolie marry him. The 45-year-old actor, who has been dating Angelina since 2005 and is raising six children with her, has reportedly told twice-divorced Angelina he will not have any more children with her unless she agrees to tie the knot. A source told America’s 'OK!' magazine: “Brad’s told her, ‘Marry me, or it’s over’.

He definitely wants to get married before they have any more babies.” Brad, who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston, is said to be feeling increasingly frustrated with the lack of time he is spending with Angelina (33). He is currently staying in New York with the children to be closer to Angelina, who is filming new spy movie ‘Salt’ in the city.


Kylie Minogue: I've had Botox


While in an interview, the 40-year-old Australian singer confessed she had cosmetic injections to ensure her face remains wrinkle-free and also hinted she may have undergone other anti-ageing procedures.

The China Daily reported that the singer told Elle magazine: "I'm definitely not one of those people who says, ''You shouldn't do this.''

“Everyone individually can do what they want. I also think it doesn't have the stigma that it had when I was growing up. "

“For all time women have wanted to, for the most part, look their best. It's just that what we have available to us today is - what it is today. And if you want to take advantage of it, yeah.

“I'm preferring to be a lot more natural these days. I've tried Botox, I''ve tried all Earlier this year, Kylie's flawless forehead sparked rumours she uses Botox,” she added.


Malawi backs Madonna adoption bid


An official of the Malawian government has backed Madonna's bid to adopt a second child from the African country.

The singer is due to return to court on Friday to learn if she can adopt four-year-old Chifundo James.

"Madonna has been good to us," Information Minister Patricia Kaliati told news agency Reuters.

"Very few rich and famous people can take time to fly all the way to Malawi to support our children. We support her adoption process."

"[Madonna] is supporting over 25,000 orphans in this country and she has proved that she can take care of David," she added.

Madonna has said it is "amazing" to be back in the country where she adopted David Banda in 2006.

'Family environment'

Chifundo, the girl at the centre of the case, whose name translates into English as Mercy, is in the same orphanage that was previously home to David, who is now three years old.

She has been living in an orphanage since her 18-year-old mother died shortly after giving birth.

Earlier this week, Madonna attended an hour-long hearing in Lilongwe to ask for permission to take Chifundo out of the country. She is seeking an 18-month interim adoption order.
