Meanwhile, Chris Daughtry had the most popular album of the year and Jennifer Hudson won a damn Oscar.
Love him or hate him, SIMON COWELL IS ALWAYS RIGHT.

Man, this is a tough week for the Spears family.
People is reporting that Jamie Spears, Britney’s dad, broke into tears shortly after her discharge Saturday morning.
“Jamie was really upset,” a source tells People, “He was in tears. When he got to the house and realized the situation there, it broke him down.”
Dr. Phil McGraw â€“ whom Jamie considers “a god,” the source says â€“ advised her father while at the hospital. He told Spears that his daughter’s release was “one of the worst decisions that could have been made.”

Lynne Spears was spotted in Louisiana, crying and laying flowers at the grave of her sister, Sandra Bridges Covington, who died of ovarian cancer almost a year ago, at the age of 59.
Awww. I know this is a staged photo op, but it sure is a good one.
Part of me wants to be all like, “Get your ass to LA and take care of your daughter, Lynne!”, but then part of me understands that, when you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t want help, sometimes the only thing you can do is take care of yourself. And sometimes that means staying far away. So maybe that’s what Lynne is doing. I mean, if you think this thing is a paparazzi circus now, imagine what it would be like if Lynne and preggers Jamie-Lynn were in the mix. She does have another child to take care of — one who seems to actually want her involved right now — so maybe that’s what she’s focusing on. I won’t fault her for that.

It looks like Brit was getting ready to leave the house today — just hours after her release from the hospital — but turned around when she saw all the paps there. What, Britney? You didn’t think there would be paparazzi outside your house??? You’ve only spent the past few months posing for them every chance you get, and now that your mental breakdown is finally getting fun again, you expect them to disappear? It’s Britney’s world, folks. We just live in it.
Anyway, Brit supposedly left the hospital with her dad — her mom and sis are still in Kentwood, despite reports that Jamie-Lynn was at the hospital with Britney, and seriously what kind of bullshit must be going on there that they can’t come to LA to see Britney after her hospitalization? — and is now holed up at home, possibly with Luckiest Paparazzo Ever Adnan Ghalib. Sam Lutfi is supposedly driving around LA looking for Britney, as he doesn’t trust this Adnan dude with her. We don’t trust you with her either, Sam!
K-Fed hasn’t left his house all day — he’s holed up at home with his sons.

Well, well, well.
Look who’s comparatively totally sane today.
Amy Winehouse is in Barbados, enjoying a precious, precious week in which she’s not the craziest celeb on the planet.
Enjoy it while it lasts, Wino.

This is some Twilight Zone shit, you guys. How did Dr. Phil get involved here? Crazy, crazy, crazy.
Anyway, here’s what he had to say to ET about his visit with Brit-Brit.
“My meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention. She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her.”
