She’s late for rehearsals. She’s late for performances. She’s late for drug tests and visitations and court dates.
But Britney Spears’ latest album?
It’s going to be early.
Britney’s album — the aptly named Blackout – was originally supposed to be released on November 13. Her label has pushed the release date up to October 30, ostensibly because so much of it has leaked online already.
“Due to these numerous unauthorized online leaks, the label is doing everything possible to prevent and avoid any further illegal distribution of songs including moving up the release date of the album to Oct. 30,” a rep for Jive Records says in a statement.
Jive doesn’t want Britney to go head-to-head with Celine Dion, who’s releasing her highly anticipated new album (which probably doesn’t suck) on November 13.
The Olsen twins … and Amy Winehouse?
Listen, people. If you live in London, stock up on cocaine. Demand is about to exceed supply.
Amy Winehouse showed up to support the Olsen twins as they launched their ultra-pricey new fashion line, The Row, in London.
The Backstreet Boys — minus Kevin Richardson — promote their upcoming album in Berlin.

If you two crazy kids couldn’t make it, NO ONE can!!
Lindsay Lohan and rehaboyfriend Riley Giles leave Cucina Toscana in Salt Lake City, where they shared a romantic dinner.
Word on the street is that Lindsay’s gotten rid of her #1 enabler: mom/manager Dina Lohan.
OK! magazine — which seems to have the monopoly on all things Lindsay these days — is reporting that the rehabbed starlet is cleaning up her life, starting close to home.
â€œLindsay fired Dina as her manager,â€ an insider revealed. â€œShe is livid about all this press her mom is doing on this NYC apartment that sheâ€™ll never even live in; Dina even gave Access Hollywood a tour of the apartment two nights ago … The two havenâ€™t even spoken in weeks except to fight.â€
As Lindsay struggled with addiction the past few years, her mom has always been on the front lines, denying that Lindsay has a problem. She’s also been rumored to have engaged in drug use with her daughter.
So who will represent Lindsay now?
Hopefully not her dad!
