13A New Tori Album!!!

Oh, happy day!

It seems like just yesterday I was illegally downloading American Doll Posse, and now I hear there’s going to be YET ANOTHER Tori album that’ll inevitably hit the Internet months before its release date.

Tori’s ditched her old label, Epic, and signed with Universal Republic. She’s planning to release a new studio album — her tenth! — in late spring/early summer 2009.

HOORAY!

New Tori albums make my whole day.

6Play Time!

Britney Spears took her kiddos, Jayden James and Sean Preston, to FAO Schwartz in NYC on Wednesday. Mom Lynne was in tow, as were many, many bodyguards. I’m sure they rented out the whole damn place.

At first I was like, “Why isn’t Britney carrying her own damn kids in any of these pictures?” and then I realized that (a) it probably poses a much bigger security risk if Britney’s carrying them and (b) she probably doesn’t want to give the photogs such a perfect shot. So I get it, I guess. That kind of sucks if any time you try to do something fun with your kids you need, like, four bodyguards to carry them around.

18I Don’t Hate What Christina Aguilera’s Wearing on the Red Carpet

This is essentially breaking news, because I don’t know that it’s ever happened before.

The dress is quite nice, and her makeup is relatively subdued, and she looks — dare I say it? — pretty. What could have inspired her to look like a normal human being for once?

My one complaint: Why is she wearing that lunch lady hair net??? Ew. Was that really the only way to get all her hair extensions away from her dumb-ass neck tat? Seriously, who tattoos their own damn name on their neck? That’s some Paris Hilton self-absorption right there. I mean, really, is it your way of being absolutely sure that your husband calls out the right name when he’s doing you from behind? Because I’m not sure he’s actually tall enough to see it anyway.

Here’s more pics of XXXtina at the Grammy nominations concert.

26Congrats to Kathy Griffin!

The funny lady has moved one step closer to her goal of winning a Grammy, as her comedy album, For Your Consideration, was nominated for Best Comedy Album at the Grammy nomination ceremony tonight. CONGRATS KATHY!!! You deserve it!!!

Somehow the Jonas Brothers were nominated in the Best New Artist category. WTF??? First: they suck and Second: They’ve been around way longer than 2008.

In fact, all the Best New Artist noms kind of suck: Adele, Duffy, Jonas Brothers, Lady Antebellum, Jazmine Sullivan … uh, where’s Katy Perry? Colbie Callait? Sara Bareilles? Stupid.

The full list of nominees is here.

29Chelsea Handler Slams Tori Spelling About Her “Gay Following”

Ooooh, I love this!

My future mentor, Chelsea “Genius” Handler, is ragging on Tori Spelling’s “gay following” in a new interview with The Advocate. The interviewer asked her if she went to any Prop 8 rallies:

I only go where the gay people invite me to go. It’s not nice to do things for the community only when people are looking. People who speak out for gay people just so that they can create a fan base annoy the shit out of me. People like Tori Spelling. She doesn’t have compassion for them. She’s not going out doing things for them. She’s like, “Oh, I have such a huge gay following.” It’s because no one else is following her!

Ouch!

Chelsea also talked a bit about her late mother, who was Mormon:

Well, we kept the Mormon side down to a dull roar growing up, because we realized how ridiculous and intolerant that religion is. My mom was never really a typical devout Mormon. After my brother passed away when he was 21 years old, my mom turned to religion, as many people do, but she was very tolerant of other religions. It was a melding of religions in our household, which worked out well because we’re all open to anything—and, as a final result, not religious at all. Organized religion, more than anything else, is completely inappropriate.

RIGHT ON.

I just looooooooove love love love Chelsea.

She’s the bestest!!!

Chelsea Handler, will you be my big sister?

10Britney Adds FOUR New Tour Dates in the U.K.

If you wanted to see Britney Spears in the U.K., you’re in luck! She originally only had two dates scheduled, but that wasn’t enough for London!

Britney will now also be performing in London on June 6, 7, 10, and 11.

Tickets for her U.S. tour officially go on sale on Saturday, and they’re on pre-sale now and selling FAST! I bought my Seattle tickets early in the day yesterday, and was trying to organize an NYC trip to go see her with my girlfriends in New York. By the time we had a head count last night, I tried to go online to buy the cheap mezzanine seats, and they were sold out on the pre-sale! In ONE day! Hopefully more will be available on Saturday. But if you want Britney tix, don’t wait! They’re gonna go FAST.
