The Lady Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks


I researched the quote to make sure I got the headline right you Shakespeare freaks. Man, you guys are worse than the LeopardRinis.

Okay, back to business, Scarlett Johannson(twins) has come out and made a very non-definitive statement about her and Timberlake.

Here it is:

“We have a lot of friends in common, and Justin’s a sweetheart, and it’s always good to see him. But there’s a lot of speculation and I try not to read that stuff. I think when two people are single and are seen together, it’s immediately like a crazy feeding frenzy.”

You know what else piques people’s interest? When you appear in a 9 minute whack off self aggrandizing J-Tim video. It’s like when that Counting Crows guy had Courteney Cox in his video. They were doing it. Or when Steven Tyler put his daughter Liv in there. You get the picture.

So don’t blame us feeding frenziers for being right on the money. You guys love each other and will have a million babies and that’s all there is to it. Unless of course he goes with Jessica. Then you’re out.

Brit’s Late-Night Vomit-rama

Not that this is even news anymore, but Britney was parting at NYC’s Tenjune late Saturday night — maybe partying a little too much. Britster exited the club and was rushed into an SUV with a blonde female friend. When she arrived at the hotel, she and the friend left, and the paps quickly noticed something was amiss within the car. They zoom in and get a close-up of the backseat of the SUV, covered in vomit. That’s hot. Video here.

Brit’s former love, Justin Timberlake, had a similar night on Friday. After performing at Avalon on Friday night (and giving K-Fed a hug on the red carpet — is there a Federlake in the works?), JT was scheduled to perform at Clive Davis’ legendary pre-Grammy bash on Saturday, but had to cancel, citing a 103 degree fever. The folks who were out partying with Justin until five o’clock Saturday morning said he seemed perfectly healthy — albeit drunk — to them. Hm. Fox News said the newly single pop star actually showed up for sound check, but just couldn’t pull it together to perform.

Maybe next time Justin should think twice before sounding off about what an irresponsible trainwreck Britney is.

Just in case Britney Spears had any surviving remnant of trust for the people she allows into her life, Isaac Cohen sits down with News of the World for a tell-all just weeks after their split. [Dirty Laundry]

The JT video for “What Goes Around Comes Around,” co-starring Scarlett Johansson, has hit the Internet. I’d comment on it, but after I’d watched for a minute or two, I was in too much pain to continue. I’d feel bad passing judgment without viewing the remaining seven freakin’ minutes. [POTP]

Someone leaked a topless photo of Jen Aniston from the set of The Break-Up. Hooray boobies! [The Blemish]

More music videos: The Killers “Read My Mind” and Scissor Sisters “She’s My Man.” [Bree, popbytes]

Ralph Fiennes joins the mile-high club. [Warship]

Justin’s Bringing ScarlettBack

Ladies and gentlemen, Justin Timberlake is dating. Yes, that’s right, he’s dating. There is more than one woman in whom he is interested, and so he is spending time romantically with both of them. You’d think the media would be familiar with this concept, as they all watch Grey’s Anatomy, and Meredith laid the concept out pretty clearly a couple months back, but everyone still seems shocked. It’s not a committed relationship … but it’s not cheating … how do we frame this?

After frollicking around Sundance with Jessica Biel, JT was back in the arms of Scarlett Johansson in Miami. The two were spotted at a Super Bowl afterparty, where, according to witnesses, “they were talking, dancing, holding hands all night – it was very cozy. Then, as they left through the back, Justin was leaning against the wall and Scarlett came up, leaned into him and did a sexy, little dance, grinding into his body.”

I am really, really happy about this, mostly because Jessica Biel is certain to be really, really unhappy about this. I take great pleasure in the little things.
