Britney Turns 27, Announced World Tour Dates & Performs on GMA.

A big happy birthday to Britney Spears.  Just this morning, she’s turned 27, announced her world tour dates and performed live on Good Morning America!  I haven’t even finished my coffee and yogurt.

I would also like to announce that I have in my hand tickets to Britney’s concert in Newark, NJ on March 13th!!!!!  In addition to the tour date announcement today, over on they announced a pre-sale on tickets to her tour.  We’re only 22 rows back!  Double Woot!!!

And, finally, here are the videos of her performance on the Good Morning America.  Britney Overload!




Britney: For the Record – My Review


I don’t know about you guys, but I was pretty excited about the Britney documentary, Britney: For the Record, on MTV last night.  It’s not that I expected any revolutionary information to come out of it, but it was nice to hear “her” take on the whole Britney’s-a-crazy-b!tch situation of 2008.  I was going to live blog it but I stupidly left my laptop charger at my mom’s house.  Instead, I snuggled up to a bowl of hot and sour soup after partaking of a bowl of a different variety and wrote my thoughts down on a napkin.  Here are my napkin notes on the “film”:

  • Very interesting to see Papa Spears in action.  He’s sort of been the silent party in her whole career.  I like his style.  He’s obviously over the whole “my daughter is a star” thing and more into the whole “my crazy daughter isn’t acting that crazy anymore” thing.
  • Reason #257 that I love Britney Spears: Velveeta Cheese
  • Reason # 258 that I love Britney Spears: Grits (I too have grits and processed cheese product in my fridge!)
  • I love Andre!  Where has she been hiding him?  He’s all sorts of fantastic.  Why didn’t she hang out with him when she went crazy?
  • That dude from The Heights that she had dinner with is all sorts of fine.  It was kinda sad that she had to ask permission from her handler to ask him out.
  • Did anyone notice that Britney’s dance stand-in is a gay Asian male?
  • Eww!  Madonna!  What the F happened to her face?  I knew she had work done but I’ve only ever seen it in pictures.  It’s a whole different experience on a large screen HDTV.  She looks like a dinosaur.
  • Why am I so tired?  Oh, wait, it’s cause Madonna is still talking.  Oh!  Now, I’ve officially tuned out.

Yeah, so those were my first thoughts.  Overall, the “film” was no Schindler’s List, but it was really nice to see some semblance of the old, pre-crazy Britney.  It’s also good to see that the people around her seem to really love her and care about her well being.  Viva la comeback…oh wait, didn’t she say she didn’t like that term?

What did you guys think?

Rough Sex Blind Item Solved!

Back in August, Page Six ran the following Blind Item:

WHICH hunk in a summer movie is a violent, closeted homosexual? The heartthrob snuck into his ex’s apartment a few months ago and raped him so violently, the ex ended up in the hospital – and the actor paid him $500,000 to keep his mouth shut.

Not So Glamorous has a well connected source that says the closeted heartthrob in question is James Franco.

Interesting that James is gearing up to get a lot of critical acclaim for his role in the upcoming movie, Milk.  Critics love it when “straight” actors play gay characters.  This begs the question, should James Franco get more credit for being a gay actor playing a straight actor playing a gay character?  Maybe he can get nominated for a double Oscar.

Britney Spears Performs “Womanizer”

The “new” Britney Spears did her first live performance of “Womanizer” yesterday on the Bambi Awards Show 2008 in Germany.  Overall, she did a good job.  She’s not yet back to her former performance standard or quality, but you can deffo see that she is well on the way.  In the video, below, you can see that she’s still a little nervous and some of her dance moves are still a bit wooden.  The circus theme of the performance is hot and I think it bodes well for the future.  I think she’s going to work the kinks out with these European performance so that her first live US performance will help make up for her “Gimme More” VMA performance.

Daily Dish

The UK’s News of the World is reporting that Amy Winehouse is telling friends that her marriage to Blake is finally over.  She’s said to have told friends that the marriage was all about sex and now that he’s incarcerated, they have nothing else in their relationship to focus on.  The article reports that they had a bunch of threesomes and “were into some real kinky stuff, not just the usual bondage and sex games but really gross stuff you couldn’t mention in a newspaper.”  And this is a British newspaper so it’s got to be really bad for them to not print it.  While I don’t think the article is totally false, I don’t think the sources are that great because they are attributing some quotes to Amy Winehouse that I don’t think she’s really capable of saying in her current state.  I hope for her sake that this is true and she cuts him out of her life, but I also kinda think it’s too late.

David Spade and Nicolette Sheridan were seen canoodling at a club in LA recently.  Has anyone heard any rumors about the size of his member or the motion of the ocean?  He can’t get all these women just with his humor alone, can he?  He does have a full head of hair so I guess he’s got a leg up on Michael Bolton there.

Kim from Real Housewives of Atlanta (you know, the white one) has been telling people she’s going to pose for Playboy.  Great.  Good to know.  Don’t forget to watch the reunion show tomorrow on Bravo.  Reports are that the “housewives” throw down.  It’s gonna be good.

2006 Celebrity Father of the Year from the 2007 Celebrity Family of the year aka Gordon Ramsey has been having an affair for 7 years.  Oh, and he does poppers, with his mistress who he makes go buy the drugs.  Color me ironic!

Sidenote – I love gossip stories I can learn from, like the one above, for example.  Before reading the article, I had no idea poppers were legal in the UK.  Anyone want to fly to London with me for a sex weekend?  We don’t have to do it together, we can just go there, land some hot British boys, preferably dirty, dirty ones, and do poppers all weekend with them.  Fun!

And, finally, for those of you who care (do any of you care?) about Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt from The Hills, they secretly got married in Mexico.  Perez Hilton is reporting that they were in Mexico on vacation and “on a whim” decided to get married on the beach.  No family was present and the whole thing was over in 15 minutes.  But, do not despair,  they’ve already sold the pics to Us Weekly.

Twilight: The Review


It’s no surprise to anyone that read this blog that I went to see Twilight this weekend.  My review is after the jump. If you haven’t read the book and plan to see the movie, you might not want to read it…not that it really gives anything away.
