Madonna rocked it out at the Tokyo Dome concert.Â Enjoy theseÂ just-in pictures.Â My the woman does have an age-preserving quality.
As posted earlier this year, Jackson & Federline have a two-year old son Kaleb & a four-year-old daughter Corey together.Â With Brit & K-Fed’s children together, one-year-old Sean Preston & newborn Sutton Pierce, Kevin has been a busy lad for his young years.
Shar reveals, “I like to keep my distance.”
K-Fed, being the considerate gentleman he is, left Jackson when she was pregnant with their second child after he met Spears at a nightclub & joined her on the European leg of her tour.
Jackson shares her feeling from the break-up, “As far as I was concerned, I was OK that the relationship ended…but the family breaking up is something painful.
“And honestly I didn’t let it happen. Now in the beginning it was rough, because he was overseas, so I really didn’t have much control over there.
“But when he came back home, I told him, ‘Kevin, I’m not going to let you be a convenient father, when it’s convenient for you.’
“If you are going to be part of these kids’ lives, then you’re going to be a part. If not, then you’re not.’”
All I can say is the ubiquitous, you go girl!

Clay Aiken is the ugly, awkward ducking turned into the more confident, new do swan. Clay has a new look, a new attitude, and by golly a new damn hairdo. So respect the boy, I mean man.
Aiken’s new album “A Thousand Different Ways” hit stores yesterday and by all accounts, the Clay fans are singing his praises. In a recent interview with People magazine, Clay revealed a little bit more about the new hairdo swan he has become.
On His New Do:
“I’m becoming a man, not just with my hair, but with my life. This year’s been an education: the education of Clay.”
On His Reported Gayness:
“What do you say (to that question)? â€¦ It’s like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, ‘Did you do this?’ Well, it didn’t matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. â€¦ People are going to believe what they want.”
That’s the best avoider answer I believe I’ve ever heard, he’s a master of the art.
On Panic Attacks He Suffered After American Idol:
“I’d walk into a room and say to myself, ‘I am not going to have a problem when these people stare at me.’ â€¦ But then (in) that situation, my heart would start pumping, and I’d start sweating and looking around nervously and shaking. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack.”
On Taking Anti-Anxiety Drugs:
“I said (to my doctor), ‘Listen, I don’t want to go to a therapist. I have nothing against therapists. I want to think I can do this on my own.’ And she recommended that I try a medication. â€¦ Now I can sit here; I can go into a store; I can handle a photo shoot. I’m able to get rid of all that stuff in the periphery. It makes everything easier.”
On His Future:
“I want to be a father so badly. I want (kids) one day. Not now. â€¦ I would love to adopt. There’s an orphanage not too far from my house, and I’ve been up before with church. I always thought, ‘What happens to those kids who have the potential to go to college but just can’t afford it?’ I’ve been thinking a lot lately about finding a way to pay for one of those kids to go to college.”

Britney Spears & Kevin Federline have brought baby Sutton Pierce home.Â The 6 pounds, 11 ounces Sutton will now have to face life in the Spears-Federline home and decide his strategy as a little brother to Sean Preston.
Everyone was overjoyed to welcome Sutton to the fold.Â K-Fed’s mom states, “We are all so happy!”
As Brit was being checked out of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, she wore a beanie, rode in a wheelchair pushed by husband Federline and held baby Sutton in her arms.Â Yep, that does sound like best case scenario for Brit to carry a baby.
It has been aÂ big monthÂ for the Spears-Federline family, asÂ toddler Sean turned one on September 14 and the couple’s two-year anniversary was last Friday.Â
As to what the duo did to celebrate, one source states, “They stayed home.Â A lot of bonding went on. Sean and Sutton get along great!”

You know, who is Sting looking at while he smooches his lady love?Â I’m not buying this kiss.Â You?
Let’s take some wanted time with sexy actress Scarlett Johansson & get to know her a little better. Here are some recent quotes on how the young temptress feels.
On Being Curvy:
I’m curvy â€” I’m never going to be 5’11′ and 120 pounds,â€ she tells the mag. â€œBut I feel lucky to have what I’ve got.”
On Telling All:
“I can’t stand those articles where people spill their life story. After a while I feel like I know more about them than their best friend does â€” and that’s weird. It’s better when you don’t know everything.”
That’s so true. I feel like I know Lindsay Lohan’s breasts better than she does, I see them popping out of her shirt all the damn time.
On Her Career:
“Do I ever get nervous about this, right now, being the pinnacle of my career? Yeah, I do. At the end of (filming) every movie I think, `Wow â€” this is the last one! Nice working with you.’”
“Of course I want to get married, but I’m way too young,” she says. “I’m not ready to sacrifice a lot of things in my lifestyle just to have an engagement ring.”
On Trading Jobs with George W:
â€œWhose life would I like to step into for the day? The president’s. I could probably get some things done in the Oval Office.”
I’m sure you could, Scarlett. I’m sure you could. Does it, I daresay, have anything to do with a cigar?

Thanks to PopSugar for the pics!

Daniel Craig has taken over the Bond reigns fromÂ Irishman Pierce Brosnan who had the infamous role for three of the Bond series movies.
Owen was another actor slated to play the part of the suave spy, but is overjoyed for Craig & insists that he is thrilled that a “proper actor” has been cast as 007.Â A slight on Brosnan?
Owen states, “I think when Craig first took the part he got a pretty rough ride, which to a certain extent is inevitable because there are so many different people who have so many different ideas about something like that. You are never going to please everybody.
“The thing that is really exciting is that he is a proper actor. He is not shallow or posing. They have cast a really serious actor and I think that when the film comes out everyone will see what a great choice he was.”
Wow.Â Seems like the English still have a grudge for the Irish.

An insiderÂ reveals that Elizabeth can’t seem to get a grip.Â ”She is crying every day”
“No one can control Rosie, and Elisabeth can’t contain her feelings. She gets so upset all the time.”
Rumors are that Rosie’s outspoken liberalÂ views are the stressor on the set.
O’Donnell’s spokeswoman, however,Â hasÂ denied any strife stating, “Elisabeth was at Rosie’s house this weekend with her daughter, Grace. They might not agree on politics, but that’s what makes the show great. Ratings are up 59%.”

Do I really need a reason to post these cute lovebirds?Â Ashton Kutcher &Â sexy wifeÂ Demi Moore are snapped at the 31st Annual Toronto International Film Festival last week.Â Aren’t they justÂ lovely?
In recent Ashton & Demi news, Kutcher has installed a bar in their master suite walk-in closet.Â Ashton claims Demi’s daily preparation ritualsÂ have driven him to drink.
He explains, ‘It takes me like 15 minutes to get ready and she’s got more complicated measures, there’s shoes and the dress and the thing… It’s like that dreaded, ‘How do I look?’ question that comes, and there’s no right answer to that. You’re just wrong. If you answer too fast it means you didn’t really look.
“If it’s too slow, it means you didn’t like it. So it doesn’t really matter what you say, you’re just wrong. So I just drink a lot now. And it helps. I get more right the more I drink. It’s like I hone in, ‘Those shoes are great! Is that a wood sole, because it’s beautiful!’ It all works out.”

Theatre Royal is looking for hobbits, you game?Â Well, you’ll have to fit in under the five feet, seven inches banner and that most assuredly rules me out of the hobbit running.
The Central London theatre isÂ holding auditions for the stage productions of Lord of the Rings, let’s hope it’s shorter than the movie & as good as the books.
TheÂ producers are looking for twenty hobbits to hire, preferably with hairy feet & toes.Â If you fit the bill, head on over & get to hobbiting.

You know,Â I never quiteÂ know how to take theseÂ types of things.Â Â Reps for Anna Nicole Smith have sold the last known photographs ofÂ Daniel Wayne Smith for more than $600,000.Â Daniel tragically & suddenly died in the Bahamas last weekÂ shortly after seeing mom Anna Nicole & his newborn sister.
The pictures of Daniel, Anna Nicole & her newborn daughter were taken just hours before Daniel’s death.
Reports are in that In Touch magazine paid $400,000 for the print exclusive, beating out People’s $350,000 bid.Â Entertainment Tonight and The Insider paid an estimated $250,000 for the TV rights to the photos.
An In Touch rep stated, “Our story will be a tribute to Daniel’s life as well as a celebration of it.”
Hopefully the photo money will go to charity or a fund set up in Daniel’s name.

Stacy Ann Ferguson’s, better known as Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, solo album is hitting stores today.Â The Duchess albumÂ is said to make millions, with “London Bridge” already a number one hit I would second that motion.
31-year-old Fergie recently satÂ down with HomoÂ Xtra, the NYC gayÂ newspaper,Â for a quickie interview.Â Here she is now.
â€œI just think, â€˜Wow, Iâ€™ve worked so hard for this, but what are you doing other than sitting there behind your computers and talking shit about people?â€™ If people donâ€™t like me, fine, but donâ€™t dis people if youâ€™re not getting off your ass and doing something about your own life.â€
On Crystal Meth:
â€œIn my experience, ecstasy led to crystal meth, and I just think that people donâ€™t know how addictive that drug is. Itâ€™s so cunning because itâ€™s such a fun drug at first. You lose weight and look great for a while, but I donâ€™t care if it takes six months or five years, it will creep up on you. Donâ€™t be fooled and think youâ€™re special.â€
“I definitely am still that girl who gets home and goes straight to Jack in the Box or Taco Bell right after I land at the airport.”
On Her Gym Crusade:
â€œIf I donâ€™t, itâ€™s not so Fergalicious.â€
“I was collecting unemployment when I joined Black Eyed Peas, so I really appreciate the worth of things.”
On Her One Year Anniversary with BeauÂ Josh Duhamel:
â€œWeâ€™ll probably go to a nice dinner, and I donâ€™t know if we want to do much else. I think weâ€™ll be anxious to get back home!â€
On Rumors The Band Is Breaking Up:
â€œWeâ€™re not breaking up! We say it at every show because itâ€™s always the question.â€
Oh, I remember this Paris quote from last week regarding the sucking face incident, â€œI did not make out with Travis Barker. I was with his friend Alex, who I met that night. Itâ€™s nothing serious. He looks like Travis, he has tattoos all over his arms, and he has a mohawk. People must have confused him with Travis.â€
I didn’t buy it then & we certainly don’t buy it now.
Apparently Hilton, who is not naked in this picture- surprising & sad, has now admitted to kissing Shanna Moakler’s ex.Â
According to the socialite’s rep, “They like each other very much.”
Well, isn’t that nice?Â I wonder what Daddy Hilton thinks of the pair?

And there’s a reason Bosworth & Bloom didn’t hit the same events during Fashion Week 2007 in NYC.
A source tells Page Six, “Their people have been speaking every hour to make sure Orlando and Kate avoid each other at all costs. They have been coordinating schedules.”
After four years of off-and-on dating, Kate & Orlando called it quits two weeks ago.
Man, I need a publicist.
