It’s Britney, Bitch

Thus begins the much-hyped Britney Spears comeback single, which hit the web tonight. It's called "Gimme More," and you can listen to it on the player below. Thus begins the much-hyped Britney Spears comeback single, which hit the web tonight. It's called "Gimme More," and you can listen to it on the player below. Because I'm wonderful, I transcribed the lyrics for you guys. They're actually kind of interesting. It comes off as a great big "fuck you" to the general public. Like, "You wanna know why I'm crazy, guys? Because you fucking love it when I'm crazy. I do this for you." All in all, it's a good dance track, and the remixes will be off the hook, but I don't know if it'll be enough to relaunch her career. It's Britney, bitch I hear you And I just wanna dance with you (laughs) Every time they turn the lights down Just wanna go that extra mile for you You got my display of affection Feels like no one else in the room Workin...

Nicole Is Back to Being a Famewhore

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Pose in Central Park, As He Touches Her Pregnant Belly Man. That was a really weird few months. But now that all 82 minutes of her jail stay are behind her, Nicole Richie seems once again to have warmed to her old pals, the paparazzi. A preggers Nicole and her rumored fiance Joel Madden just happened to be posing adorably in Central Park when some photogs wandered by. What a coincidence! Also: it looks to me like Nicole roots are dyed again. She let them go for awhile -- we all figured it was because hair dye isn't recommended for pregnant women -- but I...

Does Leonardo DiCaprio Really Need Volunteer Labor?

Leonardo DiCaprio Used Volunteer Labor, Not Union, on Documentary Film The 11th Hour FishbowlLA editor Kate Coe has an interesting article in Grist this week, regarding total hottie Leonardo DiCaprio's new eco-documentary, The 11th Hour. She attended an LA press conference for the event, and posed a simple, yet challenging, question to Leo and the producers: "Is this a union film?" The filmmakers seem flummoxed by my question. "It's a documentary," they offer. "It's an independent film." "It's so low budget." None of which prevents a film from having a union crew, I point out. And havi...

Rihanna: Cheating on Shia Already???

070829zm_rihanna_02-copy.jpg Okay, okay. Sometimes I just like to be sensationalist. Okay. I always like to be sensationalist. I refuse to learn how to spell Shia LaBuioueaf's last name, but I will happily run this picture of his alleged new paramour, Rihanna, holding hands with someone who is most certainly not Shia LaBeeuxiouf as she leaves Avalon last night. Tsk, tsk, Rihanna! If you haven't heard yet, Shia LaBizioueyf is totally the next big thing. Don't blow it, girl! ...

Barnes and Noble Will Carry O.J. Simpson Book

Barnes and Noble Will Carry OJ Simpson Book, If I Did It After initially saying they would not carry the book due to lack of demand, Barnes and Noble has changed its mind, deciding that they will, in fact, stock copies of O.J.'s "fictional" account of how he "would have" killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, if he did it. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, we live in a country where censorship is, generally, frowned upon. O.J. has the right to pen this book and people have the right to read it. On the other hand, that doesn't mean Barne...
