From the big house to the big screen, Paris Hilton’s lined up yet another movie role.
Hilton will star in 2008′s Repo! The Genetic Musical, which appears to a be a futuristic, sci-fi musical centering around the demise of the human race. Paris calls it a “unique project,” and she’s right; it’s unique in that they hired her. “I’ve been rehearsing every dayâ€”seven hours a day,” said Hilton. “We’re just in the studio. We’re doing dance and singing. We go shoot next month in Toronto.” Paris mentioned she was looking forward to the Toronto shoot, because “I hear Greece is just beautiful in the fall.”
The film’s director, the same guy behind the Saw franchise, backs up his decision to cast the heiress, stating, “I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this roleâ€”Paris came in and owned it. She is this role.”
Paris isn’t limiting her in-studio activities to the film world. She’s also been working with Scott Storch — who worked with her on her debut album — to create a sophomore release, and has been spotted around LA recording studios. I hope this album focuses on rapping about doing hard time, because that’s about the only way I’ll find it interesting. The novelty’s gone, Paris. It was funny the first time. Now it’s just unnecessary.

Britney Spears and what must be her newest assistant hit up Hollywood on Saturday night.
Doesn’t this girl have any friends?
It seems every time there’s another young woman in a shot, it turns out to be her assistant. When’s the last time you saw a picture of Britney out with friends? She doesn’t have any!
Sarah Thompson, who plays Rose on Seventh Heaven, was married this weekend in Santa Barbara to screenwriter Brad Kane (the People article doesn’t mention this, but he also did the singing voice of Aladdin in the animated film, which I think is about the coolest claim to fame anyone could ever have).
“It was breathtakingly beautiful,” she said. “It was amazing to be surrounded by the people you love the most.”
I have to admit that coming across this article on People.com was one of the strangest things that’s happened to me in my career as a gossip blogger. I’ve known Sarah since elementary school. The last time I talked to her she had just become engaged. I remember when we were kids she would write in my yearbooks that I’d see her on Broadway one day. Jesus, Sarah, I just saw your freaking wedding photo on People.com. Oh, the places we go!
Congratulations on everything, Sarah. You deserve it.
Poor Britney Spears has really lost it and News of the World has the stills from the set of her new “comeback” music video to prove it.
Here are some highlights from Brit’s video shoot.
* She left TWICE for an hour long massage leaving the cast and crew waiting
* She had problems doing the sexy pole dance and left the set in tears
* At one point she clutched her new puppy and stared into space
* She wouldn’t eat or drink anything except Red Bull during the shoot and by the end had downed about 20 of the super caffinated drinks
* Essentially the shoot had to be shut down at midnight because she was a mess
Britney’s mom sis and brother are en route to Vegas to stage an intervention. Kevin is going to get those kids if somebody doesn’t rein in Brit Brit’s crazy soon.
