Madonna Tokyo Dome Concert Pictures


Madonna rocked it out at the Tokyo Dome concert.  Enjoy these just-in pictures.  My the woman does have an age-preserving quality.


Kevin Federline’s ex refuses to meet his children with pop diva Britney Spears. Shar Jackson, remember her from Moesha?, wants to keep the space between her & Spears quite open.

As posted earlier this year, Jackson & Federline have a two-year old son Kaleb & a four-year-old daughter Corey together.  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!


Celebrific Quotes: Clay Aiken on Clay Aiken


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)? … 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. … 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.’ … 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. … 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. … 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.”

riley-keough-ryan-cabrera-dating-9-20-2006.jpgTV presenter / pop musician Ryan Cabrera is dating Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter model Riley Keough.  Which pretty much means that Ryan is dating Elvis’ granddaughter.  How cool is that for the up & coming star?

According to one source grandmom Pricilla loves Ryan, “He has that rocker thing going that all the Presley women love.  The couple’s biggest fan is . . . her grandma.”
“Priscilla loves him.  She thinks they’re a perfect match. They have been dating all summer. Ryan is like a member of the family now.”
The couple was spotted at NYC club Stereo September 12.  A source states, “He was very protective of her.  He kept his arm around her.”

What Would Elvis Think?


Britney Spears & K-Fed Bring Home Baby Sutton


Britney Spears & Kevin Federline have brought baby Sutton Pierce home.  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.  K-Fed’s mom states, “We are all so happy!”

According to a Us Weekly source, the September 12th birth by C-section “went really smoothly.”

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.  Yep, that does sound like best case scenario for Brit to carry a baby.

It has been a big month for the Spears-Federline family, as toddler Sean turned one on September 14 and the couple’s two-year anniversary was last Friday. 
As to what the duo did to celebrate, one source states, “They stayed home.  A lot of bonding went on. Sean and Sutton get along great!”

Well, the end of the Spears pregnancy #2 has come & gone.  If history tells us anything, baby #3 is well on her way.

Barbara Walters Gets Steve Irwin Widow Terri Exclusive Interview

barbara-walters-terri-irwin-interview.jpgThe widow of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin will give her first television interview since the death of her husband.  Terri Irwin will be giving this honor to Barbara Walters.   

Walters announced on The View this morning that she is headed to Australia to Irwin’s Crocoseum memorial service and will also be interviewing Terri and her 8-year-old daughter Bindi.

Irwin was killed September 4th by a stingray barb to the heart while he was snorkeling off the coast of Australia.

Walters said, “Tomorrow there is this great memorial service for Steve Irwin, who died so tragically and so young.

“His wife has not talked to anyone about this and I’m going to go to Brisbane, Australia, to do an interview with Terri Irwin and their little girl Bindi.

“To discuss what her life was, what her relationship with her husband was like, how she heard. The whole world seemed to care about him.”

Walters will be doing a one-hour special which will air next Wednesday evening.





This picture of Sting & his wife actress Trudie Styler was too cute to pass up.  The couple attended the Guide to Recognizing Your Saints premier after party in New York.

You know, who is Sting looking at while he smooches his lady love?  I’m not buying this kiss.  You?


scarlett-johansson-quotes-9-19-2006.jpgLet’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 — I’m never going to be 5’11′ and 120 pounds,” she tells the mag. “But 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 — 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 — this is the last one! Nice working with you.’”

On Marriage:

“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.”

Scarlett & fellow actor Josh Harnett have been together for a while now, sharing that oh-so-insulated apartment together.

On Trading Jobs with George W:

“Whose 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?

John Mayer & The New Three Musketeers


John Mayer still claims he doesn’t want any publicity where publicity isn’t due, but to us it looks like he may have joined the Three Musketeers.

Mayer has started hanging out with Lance Armstrong & Jake Gyllenhaal (where’s Matt?!).  The threesome seem quite content together and Mayer may win the wet t-shirt contest if Jakey G has anything to say about it.

What happened to John Mayer?  Jessica Simpson, the three musketeers….  Pretty soon we’ll see Paris Hilton on top of the wet boy.

Thanks to PopSugar for the pics!

Clive Owen Defends Daniel Craig Bond Casting


Sin City’s Clive Owen has defended the casting of fellow British actor Daniel Craig for the role of Bond, James Bond.

Daniel Craig has taken over the Bond reigns from 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.  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.  Seems like the English still have a grudge for the Irish.



Attack of the Blonde Bob Heads: Madonna, Jessica & Kate



According to Us Weekly we better watch our backs for the Blonde Bob Heads.  Madonna, Jessica Simpson & Kate Bosworth are trying to convert everyone, not to Kabbalah, but to the bob.

Keep your hair safe, ladies.  The Blonde Bob Head girls are on the prowl.

‘The View’ Rosie O’Donnell Makes Everyone Cry

rosie-odonnell-the-view-strife.jpgEver since Rosie O’Donnell came to The View, things have been a little different.  What I mean to say is that the show is 100 times better and all the ladies are cry babies.

New cohost O’Donnell seems to be stepping on the toes of the other women, especially Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

An insider reveals that Elizabeth can’t seem to get a grip. ”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 liberal views are the stressor on the set.
O’Donnell’s spokeswoman, however, has 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%.”


Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore Toronto Film Festival


Do I really need a reason to post these cute lovebirds?  Ashton Kutcher & sexy wife Demi Moore are snapped at the 31st Annual Toronto International Film Festival last week.  Aren’t they just lovely?

In recent Ashton & Demi news, Kutcher has installed a bar in their master suite walk-in closet.  Ashton claims Demi’s daily preparation rituals 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.”


Lord of the Rings Hobbit Auditons Theatre Royal in London

hobbit-height-stage-production.jpgTheatre Royal is looking for hobbits, you game?  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 is 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.

The producers are looking for twenty hobbits to hire, preferably with hairy feet & toes.  If you fit the bill, head on over & get to hobbiting.

Paris Hilton Picture Corner


Last Pictures of Anna Nicole Smith’s Son Daniel Sold

anna-nicole-smith-son-daniel-pictures-last.jpgYou know, I never quite know how to take these types of things.  Reps for Anna Nicole Smith have sold the last known photographs of Daniel Wayne Smith for more than $600,000.  Daniel tragically & suddenly died in the Bahamas last week 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.  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.


Black Eyed Peas Fergie On Crystal Meth


Stacy Ann Ferguson’s, better known as Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas, solo album is hitting stores today.  The Duchess album is said to make millions, with “London Bridge” already a number one hit I would second that motion.

31-year-old Fergie recently sat down with Homo Xtra, the NYC gay newspaper, for a quickie interview.  Here she is now.

On Bloggers:
“I just think, ‘Wow, I’ve worked so hard for this, but what are you doing other than sitting there behind your computers and talking shit about people?’ If people don’t like me, fine, but don’t dis people if you’re not getting off your ass and doing something about your own life.”
On Crystal Meth:

“In my experience, ecstasy led to crystal meth, and I just think that people don’t know how addictive that drug is. It’s so cunning because it’s such a fun drug at first. You lose weight and look great for a while, but I don’t care if it takes six months or five years, it will creep up on you. Don’t be fooled and think you’re special.”

On Vices:

“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:
“If I don’t, it’s not so Fergalicious.”
On Life:

“I was collecting unemployment when I joined Black Eyed Peas, so I really appreciate the worth of things.”
On Her One Year Anniversary with Beau Josh Duhamel:
“We’ll probably go to a nice dinner, and I don’t know if we want to do much else. I think we’ll be anxious to get back home!”

On Rumors The Band Is Breaking Up:

“We’re not breaking up! We say it at every show because it’s always the question.”


Paris Hilton Finally Admits Kissing Travis Barker


Paris Hilton is finally coming clean, on kissing Blink 182′s drummer Travis Barker that is.

Oh, I remember this Paris quote from last week regarding the sucking face incident, “I did not make out with Travis Barker. I was with his friend Alex, who I met that night. It’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.”

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. 

According to the socialite’s rep, “They like each other very much.”

Well, isn’t that nice?  I wonder what Daddy Hilton thinks of the pair?

Kate Bosworth & Orlando Bloom Break-Up Through Publicists




Just like the mature people they are 23-year-old Kate Bosworth & 28-year-old Orlando Bloom are breaking up through their publicists.

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.
