Britney Spears, who is learning the hard way that when your whole life is videotaped and broadcast internationally, a hit and run gets a little more complicated, just released the print ad for her new perfume from Elizabeth Arden. What’s special about this particular ad is that Elizabeth Arden felt it necessary to issue a little disclaimer along with the ad. Straight from my inbox:
We recently shot Britney Spears for the print campaign for her new fragrance Britney Spears Believe, in Santa Monica. It is true that Britney did leave the set; however, she returned after a brief time. Cayli was the wardrobe assistant on the shoot. We used her as a stand in so that we could set up the lighting while Britney was off the set. When Britney returned, we shot the national print ad with her. The only person in the national print ad for Britney’s Believe fragrance is Britney Spears.
So there you have it, people. What you see on that page is totally based on the image of Britney Spears and Britney Spears alone. Plus a whole lot of Photoshop.
Angelina’s busy filming Wanted in Chicago, but that hasn’t stopped her from getting in some quality time with the kiddos. Angie took little Zahara to Timeless Toys in The Windy City on Thursday.
How has this baby not been born yet? I feel like she’s been pregnant forever. The babies who were born back when she first got pregnant are already old enough to have sex with Tom Brady. Pop out that kid already, Bridg.
Our budding Humanitarian of the Year showed up at yet another charity function: Helio’s Summer Celebration, benefiting Heal the Bay. HTB is a “nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to making Southern California coastal waters and watersheds, including Santa Monica Bay, safe, healthy and clean.”
The event was hosted by Amy Smart and Emmy Rossum, but I’m sure Paris commanded the majority of the attention. A bespectacled Rumer Willis made an appearance, as did Lindsay Lohan’s summer 2006 love, Harry Morton, who we haven’t seen in quite some time.
“I just think the media should take this country in a different direction,” the Grey’s Anatomy star says in the new issue of Los Angeles Confidential Magazine. “We’re so focused on the wrong things. We’re teaching young girls that this is what they should be focusing on: rich and famous girls who are rich and famous for nothing. What are we doing to this younger generation? It’s not very responsible.”
Well, okay, fine, this younger generation has to deal with role models who are intellectually and spiritually vacant and likely to be inwardly miserable. But, come on, they also got sneakers with wheels. So let’s not rush to judgment here, Ellen. I think someone’s just jealous that we don’t write about her eating disorder more often.
Oh! But she’s already on top of that. Regarding her obvious eating disorder, Pompeo says that, “I just worry about the girls who look up to me â€” I don’t want them to think I starve myself or don’t eat, and that to be like me that’s what they have to do.”
And it’s totally true, girls. A combination of diuretics, laxatives and puking on purpose can, with some effort, have a similar result.
Although they don’t look particularly happy in this shot, Kobe Bryant and his wife are still out hitting the Hollywood party circuit together. The two left Hyde last night after an evening of partying.
