Carrie Underwood had an uber-emotional performance at Atlanta, breaking down mid-chorus of her song, “Don’t Forget to Remember Me.” Her rep says the song was inspired by her mother, and speculates the verses may have triggered memories of home.

Angelina nearly flashes photographers
Angelina Jolina narrowly escaped a serious “wardrobe malfunction”Â at the premiere of
Beowulf when her skin-tight black leather pants started to split at the seams near the hem. Brad Pitt saved the day by hiding the rip with his palm, and holding it up while the actress continued to smile — as poised as ever — at photographers.
Then the poor woman stepped into a wad of gum. Ah, some days,Â nothing goes right.
Lord of the Rings Hobbit Auditons Theatre Royal in London
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.
The Mysterious Britney Spears Press Confrence
Britney SpearsÂ is holding aÂ press conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center today.Â It’s almost been a millennium since she held her last conference, so this is kinda big, likeÂ her new look, big.Â Anyone else miss the old Brit?Â The attractive one with a convincing smile, not the one we see today trying to smile throughÂ the K-Fed marriage & dropped babies.
What is this press conference going to be about, Britney?Â I’m thinking she either captured Osama bin Laden withÂ her teeth in the woods; or sheÂ has converted to Scientology; or she’sÂ finally coming to her senses and leaving her red neck husband Kevin Federline; or she’s going to reveal what everyone and their brother already know- she’s pregnant yet again, and a baby girl is on the way.Â
Britney has yet to reveal why she has invited select media,Â journalist and record industry reps to the convention center, butÂ one question seems to tap at my brain-Â will K-Fed be a part of this special Spears talk?Â With his new record on the loose, will he try & upstage his wife for musical attention?
“K-Fed’s the bomb now,” says a friend of the couple. “He’s the one who’s cut a record and performed in public most recentlyâ€”and who doesn’t look totally gross in sweat pants. Britney’s got to do something other than drive around with her baby on her lap to get attention. I guess this ‘mysterious’ press conference is it.”
News has circulated that there may be marital problems between Britney Spears & Kevin Federline.Â Reports of K-Fed’s marijuana use, compulsive spending andÂ his practice of a hands-off theory of parenting have culminated to an unhappy marital affair.
“She can’t stand the thought of playing second banana to a guy who used to carry her [sanitary napkin] bag,” said the friend. “But whether she’s leaving Hollywood, quitting show business, or running for governor, all eyes are going to be on K-Fed if he shows up today.”
To tell you the truth, I’m hoping for the Laden in her teeth scenario.
