Listen, Britney Spears has two young sons, so it makes sense that she’d want to get cool mom cred by doing a song for an animated film. While I’m not sure The Smurfs hold any cool points past 1992, BritBrit has released ‘Ooh La La’, which will appear on the Smurfs 2 soundtrack. First of all, why is there a Smurfs 2? Why was there a Smurfs 1 (so to speak) to begin with?
The song is absolutely horrendous, I have to say. The vocal effects on this make it seem like something out of a weird Japanese nightmare and it’s just all wrong. The chorus finds Britney – or a pack of computerized robots, who can say?) – imploring, “Baby come with me and be my ooh la la”. What does that even mean? I know what it’s trying to mean – I’m not an imbecile – but just… no.
Have a listen below and leave your thoughts in the comments, though I expect they’ll all be something like “lalajdflajsldkf;wlkereo;a” after your head hits the keyboard repeatedly as you beg it to stop.

Britney Spears has managed – against all odds – to really pull her life together over the past couple of years and really re-endear herself to the public. Helping this is the fact that she has two adorable sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, 7-year-old Sean Preston and 6-year-old Jayden James. Aren’t they cute?
Sitting down with Mario Lopez for a new interview, Britney opened up about family life with the kids – how hard it is to diet when the kids are chomping on Cheetos and Little Debbies and her feelings on putting them in to showbiz, if that’s what they end up wanting to do. Here’s a few choice quotes:
“When they come over, the snacks are constantly piling up and I constantly have to feed them. I’m like, ‘Jesus! I want fried chicken too!’”
Don’t we all want fried chicken? I could eat some right now, to be honest.
“They do like attention, so I think they would probably be a little good in the limelight.
“We’re taking baby steps at this point as far as agencies and stuff like that goes, but they’re little comedians, so we’ll see.”
Oh, dear. BritBrit, you’re in the danger zone. I know the world needs child stars, but having been through the experience herself and seeing how much it’s nearly destroyed her, why in the hell would she want to put her own kids through the same thing? Surely a paycheck’s not worth that much.

Britney Spears is on the cover of Shape Magazine and I think she looks pretty fantastic. Yes of course there’s some photoshopping done — that’s a sad and annoying given — but I think the end result is pretty realistic. Here’s what she looked like going to a spin class a little over a week ago:
Yeah, we can’t see her abs, but I think we can assume they’re pretty decent, as this is what they looked like in March. This is my life now, analyzing Britney Spears’ abs.
Here’s one of my favorite things about all of this Shape cover stuff. The magazine previously criticized Ms. Spears for her eating habits. The article was titled “15 Bad Excuses Women Make For Not Eating Healthy“. They posted a photo of her with her signature Frappuccino drink, citing her as a bad role model for health and one of the reasons women make for not eating healthy:
“Britney Spears Is Always Photographed Drinking Iced Frappuccinos With Whip And She’s Thin!”“She’s thin, but is she healthy?” Bushard asks. More importantly, it’s dangerous to compare yourself with celebrities and friends.
You can’t find the article when you type “Britney Spears” into their search bar, but I found it easily through Google. I guess they’ve since changed their minds about Britney as a picture of health, pun intended.

Nobody needs to even bother messing with my girl Zooey Deschanel – she’s adorable. Go ahead and try to deny it! Pretend she’s too twee or too hipster or too whatever for your tastes, and then get with the program and realise she’s cute and get over it. Anyway, Fox News apparently didn’t get the message, nor did Kansas-based closed-captioning service Caption Solutions, who falsely identified her as the Boston bomber last week, as you probably remember:
It was by far the weirdest – and outright stupidest – mistake I’ve seen Fox make in a while. Well, no, I take that back. I just kinda don’t understand how it happened to begin with. But no matter! Caption Solutions has come forward and offered Zooey a formal apology. Because, you know, this is that big of a deal (it totally isn’t).
From The New York Post:
The Kansas-based Caption Solutions says it and its captioner “deeply” regrets the snafu. In a statement, company president Kala J. Patterson said they “sincerely apologize for this error.”
The onscreen text appeared last Friday on KDFW in Dallas-Fort Worth during their coverage of the manhunt for a Boston bombing suspect. Accompanying a photo of accused suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was a caption that read: “Marathon Bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.”
Viewers noticed Deschanel’s name and quickly posted screen grabs of the gaffe.
When Deschanel learned of the TV captioning blunder, she tweeted: “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
It’s a slow news day, leave me alone.

Selena Gomez never has much of anything interesting or intelligent to say (but she DOES have amazing hair), so it’s no surprise that her latest interview on the Elvis Duran in the Morning Show consisted of a lot of words with very little meaning. The gist of it, if my listening skills are correct, is that she wants the fun parts of fame and not the bullshit ones and everyone should just leave her alone, especially when it comes to her relationship with ex(?)-boyfriend Justin Bieber. But let’s hear it in her own words, shall we?
“I’m in my 20s. I wanna have fun [now]. I wanna enjoy my life and not have to worry about every single thing.”
“I think I’ve actually given enough of myself, if that makes sense. I feel within my music, and even how I handle myself in interviews, people think they know, but they really actually don’t… In a way, I like to keep myself a little bit private, but at the same time people do assume things.”
So, you are private but you still give info but you’ve given enough info even though people think you haven’t? Or something? I mean, I’m not a total imbecile and I do get what she’s going for here, but was there not a more succinct and direct way of going about it? Lord. I feel like I’m reading my journals from when I was 14.
