Britney in the City

Watch out Carrie! There's a new sexy single gal taking New York City by storm: Britney Spears!

Brit spent Tuesday afternoon trying to shop in SoHo.

Then she made her way to the Richard Rodgers Theatre for a performance of In The Heights!

Britney is going to love that show! I know I do! And, I hope to see a few photos of her with the cast on in the next few days.

Thanks to Just Jared for the pictures!

Update: Here's a picture of Britney with In The Heights star/creator Lin Manuel-Miranda!!!

I've had my first taste of Shrek the Musical!

Thanks to PLAYBILL and the musical's official website, I got to listen to "I Know It's Today." The song's very cute, sung mainly by a little girl, but feature's Sutton Foster as Princess Fiona. Click HERE if you'd like to hear it for yourself.

Britney Spears On Tour In 2009!

Britney Spears says her new song, "Womanizer" which debuted on Friday is an empowering anthem for girls.

"It's basically saying, 'We know what you're up to.' It's about guys cheating on girls," the singer told New York's Z100 radio station on Monday. "It's a girl anthem. That's why I like it."

The song is the first single from Spears's upcoming album, Circus, due for release on Dec. 2, her 27th birthday.

As for her recent victory at MTV's Video Music Awards, where she won three Moonmen (including video of the year for "Piece of Me"), Spears expressed surprise.

"It's a cool video, but I think by far I've done videos that are way better, so I was really shocked that it got the award," she said. "It was just inspiring, though, because now, going forward with the videos that I'm doing now, I can really go there and do something crazy and see what happens."

Another part of the singer's comeback? A tour is "definitely" in the works, she said. "Oh, definitely next year," she said on the radio show. "Probably around the world."

Source: PEOPLE

Britney's planning a Circus tour! I'm starting to hyperventilate just thinking about it. I'll probably pass out when it's set and finalized. OMG! I need to start putting more money in my "Britney fund."

Update: After doing a little promotional work for her upcoming album, Britney Spears made her way to the Upper East Side and had dinner at one of my favorite NYC Restaurant's, Serendipity.

I wonder if she had the frozen hot chocolate!?

Another Manic Monday

What's the best part about Monday? HEROES! And tonight, with escaped villains from Level 5 on the loose, The Company dispatches an unlikely pair, H.R.G. and Sylar (Seriously, Sylar!), to stop them.

Don't miss the new episode, "ONE OF US, ONE OF THEM," on NBC at 9PM.

PS: Monday also means it's time to charge up your phones and get ready to vote for Lance and Lacey on Dancing with the Stars! The eleven remaining stars must tackle the paso doble or rumba tonight at 8PM on ABC.

The Amazing Race Returns

I must encourage everyone to start watching The Amazing Race, if you haven't already. It premiered last night and contestant Nick Spangler, who I met in New York City two summer's ago, and his sister Starr are really great!

They already came in first at the "Pitt Stop" and won a trip to Belize!

Here's a pic of me and Nick, once upon a time:

Turn The Light On

American Idol winner David Cook has just released his first single, 'Light On,' from his not-yet-titled debut album. Personally, I'm not sure if I like it or not, but click HERE to listen for yourself.

The single is scheduled for iTunes release on September 30th, while the album will be released on November 18th (just one week after 'Idol' runner-up David Archuleta releases his debut album).

Camera's Cover Equus

The reviews are in, EQUUS is a hit! Check out's photo coverage of the opening night curtain call and after party at New York City's Pier 66:

And here are pictures of Daniel Radcliffe at the stage door:

Roman Amor

WOW! Two of my favorite things: Justin Timberlake and the Colosseum! But, now that I see them side-by-side, I think I want to change my vote for The New7Wonders of the World from the Colosseum to JT.

As you can tell, Justin and Jessica Biel spent some time in Rome recently. Here are a few pictures of the pair strolling the streets, posing with fans, and running from the paparazzi:

Rome's where I wanted Justin to take me on holiday. Why Jessica?!

You're Nothin' But A Womanizer

Here it is! The world premiere of Britney Spears' new single "Womanizer!"

New York City radio station Z100 debuted "Womanizer" Friday morning. The song is the first single off of Brit's 6th studio album, Circus (set for release Decemeber 2nd), and the music video was filmed on Thursday.

I think I'm going to head to the nearest club strictly to dance to this song! It has power. It has attitude. And, It has a kick-ass beat! I looooove the chorus, "Boy, don't try to front. Ah, I know just, just what you are. Ah ah."

I can't wait to see Britney perform this on Simon Cowell's hit show X-Factor!

McCain vs. Obama

After several crazy days and a lot of speculation (Will Washington reach an agreement on the bailout? Will John show up? Will Barack get crucial primetime TV all to himself?) the first presidential debate will take place as scheduled! Thank God!

John McCain and Barack Obama will face off LIVE in Mississippi tonight! The focus of tonight's debate will be on Foreign policy and national security, but, you can expect to hear about the economy as well.

Join the best political team on television, CNN, for your front row seat, beginning at 8PM ET.

Update: According to CNN, a national poll of people who watched the first presidential debate suggests that Barack Obama came out on top. Fifty-one percent of those polled thought Obama did the better job in Friday night's debate, while 38 percent said John McCain did better.

A CBS News/Knowledge Networks poll taken immediately following the debate also suggests Obama benefited the most from the first presidential debate.

Opening Night

Equus, Peter Shaffer's gripping play about the bewildering crime of a teen-age boy, officially opens tonight, September 25th, at the Broadhurst Theatre!

Good luck Daniel, Richard, and the entire cast and crew! I'll be seeing you in 23 days!!!

Also, If you're a fan of Broadway, you should know that the latest musical casualty is non-other than Legally Blonde. The production will play its final performance at the Palace Theatre October 19th.

You can't say you didn't see that one coming. But you can still catch the show on tour! Click HERE for information.

Free Sarah Palin

Read the great commenatry below by CNN's Campbell Brown:

Frankly I have had it, and I know a lot of other women out there who are with me on this. I have had enough of the sexist treatment of Sarah Palin. It has to end.

She was in New York on Tuesday meeting with world leaders at the U.N. And what did the McCain campaign do?

They tried to ban reporters from covering those meetings. And they did ban reporters from asking Gov. Palin any questions.

I call upon the McCain campaign to stop treating Sarah Palin like she is a delicate flower who will wilt at any moment.

This woman is from Alaska for crying out loud. She is strong, she is tough, she is confident. And you claim she is ready to be one heartbeat away from the presidency. If that is the case, then end this chauvinistic treatment of her now. Allow her to show her stuff. Watch Brown call on the McCain campaign to 'Free Sarah Palin' »

Allow her to face down those pesky reporters just like Barack Obama did today, just like John McCain did today. Just like Joe Biden has done on numerous occasions. Let her have a real news conference with real questions.

By treating Sarah Palin differently from other candidates in this race, you are not showing her the respect she deserves.

Free Sarah Palin.

Free her from the chauvinistic chains you are binding her with.

Sexism in this campaign must come to an end. Sarah Palin has as much a right to be a real candidate in this race as the men do. Watch a debate on whether the GOP is hiding Palin.

So let her act like one.

Clay Pulls A "Lance"

Following the Aug. 8 birth of his son Parker, singer Clay Aiken is following through on a promise he made to himself as a new dad: to publicly acknowledge that he's gay.

"It was the first decision I made as a father," Aiken, 29, tells the upcoming issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. "I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that."

Aiken says he expects the news may overwhelm some of his fans. "Whether it be having a child out of wedlock, or whether it be simply being a homosexual, it's going to be a lot," said Aiken, who returned to Broadway last week as Sir Robin in Monty Python's Spamalot.

He adds that he hopes his fans "know that I've never intended to lie to anybody at all. ... But if they leave, I don't want them to leave hating me."

The born-again Christian singer also reveals how he told his mother Faye he's gay four years ago. After dropping off his younger brother Brett, who was being deployed to Iraq, at Camp Lejeune, "I started crying in the car," Aiken remembers. "It was dark. I was sitting there, thinking to myself. I don't know why I started thinking about it ... I just started bawling. She made me pull over the car and it just came out."

So what was his mom's reaction? "She started crying. She was obviously somewhat stunned. But she was very supportive and very comforting." Even now, Aiken admits, "She still struggles with things quite a bit, but she's come a long way."

As for his own child, Aiken tells PEOPLE that Parker – who was conceived via in vitro fertilization with his best friend, music producer Jaymes Foster – will be raised in an environment that is "accepting and allowing him to be happy."

Says Aiken: "I have no idea if he'll be gay or straight. It's not something I'll have anything to do with, or that he'll have anything to do with. It's already probably up inside the code there ... No matter what the situation you're in, if you're raised in a loving environment, that's the most important thing."

Source: PEOPLE

As a one-time Claymate and American Idol fan, I'd like to say that I'm very proud of Clay! It's not like most everybody didn't already know, but I'm sure it was still hard to put himself out there so publicly. Clay must have gained a lot of strength from becoming a dad. And, as far as the magazine cover goes, I think both father and son look adorable!

The Equus Countdown

I'm going to New York City to see Broadway's Equus in 24 days! I can hardly wait!

Here's a funny quote from Daniel Radcliffe [about his nude Equus promo shots]: "Maybe one day I'll be able to turn to my children, and say, 'Look at how firm your father's ass was,'" he muses. "But I guess that might actually be a really disturbing family moment, and ultimately cost me millions for the therapy."

HEROES: Chapter 1 & 2

As expected, I'm experiencing a major HEROES hangover from last night's 3 hour premiere event. "The Second Coming" and "The Butterfly Effect" were too much for me to handle! I loved them, but they left me seriously confused. I spent most of this afternoon scribbling down notes, making predictions and drawing "Peter Petrelli time-lines" on a piece of paper... I'm just trying to figure things out!

All-in-all, HEROES has made a shocking, striking comeback and deserves much praise for what appears to be a thrilling season of 'Villains!'

So, what side am I on? Evil, of course. Team Sylar!!!

They're Back

Sex and the City: The Movie is new on DVD today!

I just brought one home from the store, and I'm so excited to watch it again!

Speaking of Sex and the City, on Sunday's Emmy Awards red carpet, Cynthia Nixon revealed to E! that SATC writer/director Michael Patrick King is already working on a new story for a second film and that the girls are all trying to work out their schedules and sign on!

And, if you haven't heard already, SATC creator Candace Bushnell is writing a new series of books called "The Carrie Diaries," based on the teenage years of Miss Carrie Bradshaw! How MAJOR is that!?

Happy Birthday To You

I'd like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my sister, who turns 19 today! Maura, the next time we have a RENT sing-a-long, these will officially be your lyrics: "I'm 19, but I'm old for my age. I'm just born to be bad!"

The Emmy Runway

As far as Emmy female-friendly fashion goes, there were a lot more hits than misses. But, in my opinion, only one woman made an impact: Brooke Shields. Ladies, take notes!

Brooke looked, in the words of Christian Siriano, "fierce" in a fuchsia Badgley Mischka gown. I loved it!

As for Eva Longoria Parker's bow-topped Marchesa dress, I loathed it! And her hair... somebody call Jonathan Antin!

Don't get me wrong, I love Eva, but I think she's going to be fined by the fashion police, if not thrown behind bars.

And, as far as Lauren Conrad goes, I don't see what all the fuss is about. I've been hearing a lot of nasty things about her dress (that she designed herself), but I think it's kind of elegant.

Did she look uber-fabulous? No. But, did the simplicity of the dress combined with the soft, loose hair create a California fresh look? Yes. And, that's not so bad. Maybe she was going for beach-chic?

Vote For Lance Bass

The 3 night live Dancing with the Stars premiere event starts tonight at 8PM on ABC, and all I have to say is, "Vote for Lance!" You can start voting at the top of each performance show. Phone and text lines will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show and online voting will remain open until noon (Eastern Time) on the day of the results show.

A New Volume Begins

The 9 month wait is finally over! On Monday, NBC's brilliant hit show HEROES returns with an all new season! Don't miss the countdown show at 8PM followed by two back-to-back all-new episodes of HEROES Volume 3: Villains.

I'm so excited to see Sylar back to his old murderous self! And there are so many questions I can't wait to have answered, like, who shot Nathan? What happened to Niki? Who's good? Who's evil? Is Mr. Petrelli in Level 5? AHH!

Check out the preview for Monday night's premiere event:

An Update On The Law

Jude Law and documentary filmmaker Jeremy Gilley went to Afghanistan to promote the U.N. International Day of Peace with a new film, The Day After Peace. As a result, International Peace Day, today, saw pledges by the U.S., NATO, the Afghan government and the Taliban to any halt attacks. To hear more about it, watch the video below:

Also, rumor has it that Jude will star opposite Robert Downey Jr. in Guy Ritchie's remake of Sherlock Holmes! According to reports, Jude will play the role of Sherlock's sidekick, Watson. And, it's also being rumored that Sienna Miller will sign on for the film. Could it be? A Jude & Sienna reunion? We shall see.

Emmy Awards

Tonight, the 60th primetime Emmy Awards will air on ABC, at 8PM! And, for the first time, there will be a "Best Host" award category. So, Ryan Seacrest, Tom Bergeron, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Jeff Probst will not only take turns hosting tonight's event, they will also be in the running to win an Emmy. It's a crafty idea, but we all know nobody compares to the one-and-only Ryan Seacrest (who's also hosting the E! red carpet special)!

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Hayden Panettiere, William Petersen, Vanessa Williams, Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, and the cast of Desperate Housewives will present, while Entourage, The Office, American Idol, Extras, Ugly Betty, and Saturday Night Live are all nominees.

Update: I'm so happy that Jeremy Piven won (for the 3rd year in a row) and I'm so mad that Ryan Seacrest lost (though Jeff Probst is the "original" reality show host after all).

Closing Time

Two of Broadway's most "unique" shows are heading for the exit.

On October 12th, the Tony-nominated musical Xanadu will play its final performance at the Helen Hayes Theatre and [title of show] will end its run at the Lyceum Theatre.

Xanadu, based on the film of the same name, features two of Broadway's fan-favorites, Tony nominee Kerry Butler and the oh-so-hot Cheyenne Jackson. Many will be sad to see them go. But, if you live on the west coast, have no fear, Xanadu will be opening at the La Jolla Playhouse (where Jersey Boys originated its award-winning run!) on November 11th.

[title of show], the new musical that would rather be nine people's favorite thing than 100 people's ninth favorite thing, was just starting out, and I'm bummed I never had the chance to see it (Though I did see the OBC perform at "Broadway in Bryant Park" this past summer). But the Tony Award Administration Committee deemed co-stars Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell eligible for nomination in the Leading Actor in a Musical category, so we may see some love for [title of show] at the Tony's on June 7th, 2009.

Voices of a Movement

Inspired by the grassroots movement created by Barack Obama’s historic presidential run and his call for the change Americans need, artists supporting Barack Obama teamed up to create a new CD that taps into the campaign’s universal themes of hope, unity and change.

The disc, titled Yes We Can: Voices of a Grassroots Movement, includes a collection of artists from across genres, including such renowned performers as Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, Adam Levine from Maroon 5 and John Legend. Through their musical contributions, the artists seek to mobilize voters in the final stretch before the November election. Many of the artists involved will also be volunteering their time to promote voter registration.

You can download the album from Barack's official website for $24.99 or purchase a CD for $30.00. All profit goes towards the campaign.

Brad Pitt Fight's For People's Right's

The Associated Press is reporting that Brad Pitt has donated $100,000 to fight Proposition 8, California's November ballot initiative that would overturn the state Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.

On Wednesday, Brad said, "Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8."

He is such a nice guy! And, earlier in the week, Brad (and Angelina) donated $2 million to help fight HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia.

Update: Steven Spielberg is the latest high-profile donor giving money to fight California's Proposition 8, the ballot initiative that would ban gay marriage in the state.

The director and his wife, Kate Capshaw, donated $100,000 to the No-on-8 campaign, the couple announced Tuesday.

Hollywood Keeps An 'Eye' On Shia

On Tuesday, Shia LaBeouf made his first red carpet appearance since his car crash two months ago, and I think it's safe to say that he's recovering just fine!

Shia attended the premiere of his new film, Eagle Eye, at Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese theatre, and was joined by Transformers co-star/friend Megan Fox.

Eagle Eye opens nationwide on September 26!

Fame and Family in a Tabloid World

I almost forgot to remind y'all that Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World by Lynne Spears is available for purchase in bookstores today! You can also order it on for $16.49.

Finally, the truth will be told! This is a MUST HAVE for any Spears family fan.

GOP Mock Toasters

For some absurd reason, certain Republicans think it's funny that some Americans can't even afford basic amenities (like a toaster) because of our current economic crisis.


Tuesday, on NBC's Today Show, Sen. Joe Biden said, “[The Obama] tax plan would take that tax cut of another $130 billion that John [McCain] wants to give to people making over $250,000 next year, not let it go forward and give it to the middle class — the very people who desperately need it to stay in their homes, to buy food, to take care of the gas, to fill up their tank, to be able to go out and buy a toaster, to employ people.” And, the GOP responded by saying, "Did you catch Joe Biden saying this morning that their tax cut will allow Americans to buy a ‘toaster’? Nothing says a sound economic plan like ‘buying a toaster.’”

Erm, You'd think they'd be a little more sympathetic to the American citizens struggling with today's failed economy, especially after the bloodbath on Wall Street yesterday!

If you ask me, this is just another reason why John McCain cannot win the November election. He doesn't even get the fact that buying food and, YES, buying a toaster are big problems that Americans face. I mean, how pathetic is it that people can't afford toasters!? Come on now!

The Lindsay Lo Down

There's a lot going on in the life of the fabulous LiLo. First, Linds graces the current cover of Marie Claire magazine. I haven't read the article yet, but the pictures sure are pretty. Here's one from the Mark Abrahams photoshoot:

On September 10th, the cover girl attended the Marie Claire celebration of new Fashion Director, Nina Garcia, at Milk Studios, followed by the Stand Up For A Cure concert at Madison Square Garden.

As if Marie Claire wasn't enough, Lindsay is also featured in the new issue of ELLE.

And, last but not least, here's Lindsay (and Sam's) latest MySpace blog:

I really cannot bite my tongue anymore when it comes to Sarah Palin.

I couldn't be more supportive of a woman in office, but let's face it, it comes down to the person, and their beliefs, male or female.

Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock?

I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor. Which is probably all she is qualified to be... Also interesting that she got her passport in 2006.. And that she is not fond of environmental protection considering she's FOR drilling for oil in some of our protected land.... Well hey, if she wants to drill for oil, she should DO IT IN HER OWN backyard. This really shows me her complete lack of real preparation to become the second most powerful person in this country.

Hmmmm-All of this gets me going-Fear, Anxiety, Concern, Disappointment, and Stress come into play...

Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?

I know that the most important thing about this election is that people need to exercise their right to vote, regardless of their choice... I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the "lipstick on a pig" comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president...

Palin's Desire to "save and convert the gays"-really??

According to this Associated Press story, the church of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is hosting a kind of conference devoted to the "conversion of Gays" -- no kidding.

Here's the AP text:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ? Gov. Sarah Palin's church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

You'll be encouraged by the power of God's love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality," according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed since she was a child.

Palin's conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain's candidacy before he named her as his vice presidential choice. She is staunchly anti-abortion, opposing exceptions for rape and incest, and opposes gay marriage and spousal rights for gay couples.

I feel it's necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman.

Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies... And its frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that.

Oh, and...Hint Hint Pali Pal- Don't pose for anymore tabloid covers, you're not a celebrity, you're running for office to represent our, your, my COUNTRY!

And in the words of Pamela Anderson, "She can suck it"..

Lindsay- "I have faith that this country will be all that it can be with the proper guidance. I really hope that all of you make your decisions based on the facts and what feels right to you in your heart-vote for obama!"

Samantha- "I love this country- however i wasn't born here and don't have the right to vote- so i beg of you all to really do your research and be educated when you cast your vote this coming november.... and if you're in doubt- vote for obama! Mainly because if she gets elected my green card probably won't get renewed!!!"

Lindsay and Samantha

Well, as you can see, la Lohan's got a lot on her mind. And, there's nothing like a nice blog post to get something off your chest! Don't worry Linds, I feel ya.

PS: All photos thanks to!

Jive gives Britney a B-Day present

Here's the press release announcing Britney's 6th studio album, appropriately titled Circus, due out on her 27th Birthday, December 2nd:

First Single "Womanizer" Is Slated To Hit Radio On September 22nd

Jive/Zomba recording artist Britney Spears announces her sixth studio album, Circus, set for release December 2nd. The first single from the album is titled "Womanizer" and was produced by the up-and-coming Atlanta production team The Outsyders. The album release date coincides with Spears' birthday.

On the heels of an MTV VMA awards sweep, where Britney walked away with three Moonmen awards for "Video of the Year," "Best Female" and "Best Pop Video" for "Piece of Me," Jive Records is preparing her latest album, Circus, a follow-up to her critically well received album, Blackout. For her latest effort, Britney has enlisted a stellar group of established producers/writers that include Dr. Luke (who wrote and produced the album's title track, "Circus"), Danja, Max Martin, Bloodshy & Avant and Guy Sigsworth (Madonna, Alanis Morissette, Bjork).

Britney Spears is one of the top-selling artists of the last decade, and to date, she has sold in excess of 62 million albums worldwide that include Baby One More Time (1999), Oops!...I Did It Again (2000), Britney (2001), In The Zone (2003), and Blackout (2007), eight #1 worldwide singles and four consecutive #1 albums.

I'm so excited about this! Only 7 more days until "Womanizer" hits the airwaves!

Preston's Triple Digit

Happy 3rd Birthday, Sean Preston Spears-Federline!

When I heard that Sean P had been born, 3 years ago today, I rushed to Britney's official website and ordered some merchandise (as a tribute, of course) and yelled from my dorm room to friends that passed, "Britney had a boy!" And now the eldest Spears-Federline is busy driving "SUV's" and working out at My Gym, sort of. Oh, how time flies.

SNL Premiere Goes For Gold

Tonight, Saturday Night Live hits the comedy campaign trail once again, and here are two of the promos (starring cast-member Kristen Wiig and Host Michael Phelps):


Brit Does Charity

Britney Spears has donated an original autographed oil painting of herself, by artist Daniel Maltzman, to benefit The Promises Foundation. The bidding started at $10,000 and the listing can be found on ebay (HERE).

Here's the photograph on which the painting was obviously based. It's from the September 2003 UK Edition of ELLE magazine:

I'm Ready For A Green Economy

The first presidential debate is scheduled for September 26th. The next day, the candidates will watch us. On Saturday, September 27th Green Jobs Now! will launch a national mobilization to demonstrate that the country is ready for the new green economy.

Green Jobs Now! will empower everyday people to stage hundreds of grassroots events throughout the country. All you need to organize a Green Jobs Now! event is a good idea, good people, and a camera, and you must do AT LEAST two things:

1. Upload a photo or a video of themselves, holding a sign that says “I’m Ready.”

2. Sign the “I’m Ready” petition HERE.

The more people who appear in each image, the better. The more images the mobilization gets, the better. And the more people who sign the petition, the better. When thousands of people are united behind one goal – “Green Jobs Now” – the next Congress and President will pay attention.
