Spears Obtains New Restraining Order On Lufti And Others


Things have been going really well for Britney lately and daddy Spears will make sure no one is a bad influence on his daughter.
Britney Spears's father has obtained new restraining orders against her former manager, her ex-boyfriend and a lawyer, according to court documents filed Friday.

Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who oversee the singer's affairs as co-conservators, allege the three men "are now working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears's health and well being," the papers say.

Nick Lachey Feels The Need To Defend Jessica


Jessica Simpson has another defender of her curvier figure: her ex-husband and reality show costar, Nick Lachey.

"I hope she's happy, whatever size she comes in," Lachey tells Extra. "I wish her nothing but the best."

Lachey, 35, joins a chorus of other celebs supporting Simpson, 28, including sister Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Kim Kardashian and Heidi Klum.

"I can't believe it's this big of a story and people are making such a huge deal about it," Lachey says. "I'm never ceased to be amazed by people's reaction to things."

Nick can't believe its becoming a huge deal, but he felt the need to comment

John Mayer & Elmo Share Heart To Heart

John Mayer took a magical trip back to his childhood when he found his feet on Sesame Street, standing next to Elmo.

"Of all the highlights in my career, I don't know of one more sentimental than getting to walk through Sesame Street," Mayer, 31, writes on his blog. "Yes, there seems to be somebody always standing right below Elmo and his friends, mouthing along to everything they're saying, but somehow I'm too filled with wonder to ever look at them. When you make contact with those big beautiful eyes, you're done. Five years old again. Life is good."

The segment was part of a primetime special "Coming Home: Military Families Cope With Change," which will air April 1 on PBS.

Amy Vacations While London Home Is Robbed

LONDON (AP) -- Amy Winehouse's spokesman says the singer's home in north London was broken into while she was on vacation in the Caribbean.

Spokesman Chris Goodman says Winehouse has reported guitars and music-recording equipment stolen.

Goodman said Friday the home was left empty when Winehouse was on her much-publicized vacation on the island of St. Lucia.

He says Winehouse's neighbors spotted the burglars Thursday and called police. Officers found the front door kicked in. No arrests have been made.

Winehouse shot to stardom with the multi-Grammy-winning album "Back to Black" in 2006 and has a fortune estimated by the Sunday Times at 10 million pounds ($15 million).

Behind The Scenes: The Dream - Rockin That Thang

Get a behind the scenes look at The Dream’s new video for “Rockin’ That Thang” with an appearance from girl group Electrik Red.

Taylor Swift Takes A Stab At Clothes


Taylor Swift has teamed up with teen favorite L.E.I. to produce a line of sundresses for Walmart. “I love dresses,” Taylor tells PEOPLE. “And I have always had this dream to make an affordable sundress line.” Taylor first teamed up with L.E.I. last year to star in their denim campaign, and now the Walmart brand will be releasing her dresses on February 1st.

The singer, who will also star in the ads, looked to her own life for inspiration when it came to design. “I started brainstorming what I would wear this summer, on tour or hanging out at festivals when its hot outside,” Taylor says. 
The result: a collection of lightweight jersey dresses in bold colors and girly prints for just $14. “I was totally adamant that I wanted [the dresses] to be affordable. With my headlining tour, we are offering $20 tickets everywhere we go and I wanted to approach the sundress line in the same way,” says Taylor. “To have cute dresses under $20 is something I am really proud of.” Though the star prefers more comfortable fashions, she does love designer gowns for the red carpet. “My absolute favorite is the dress that I wore to the CMAs this year. It was the Kaufman Franco glittery one,” Taylor recalls of the dress that landed her on best dressed lists everywhere. 
“I love dresses that sparkle and that was the epitome of sparkly — it was like a walking mirror.” Before gearing up for her tour, the singer will be hitting the Grammy Awards on February 6th and while she doesn’t have her dress picked out yet, she does have a designer in mind, “It has always been my dream to wear an Oscar de la Renta gown. So someday in my life I will wear one.”

Jessica Gets Slapped With Lawsuit?

This isn't starting off as a good year for Jess. First the media calls her fat and now she's getting suid because of her workout video.

Jessica Simpson has been slammed with a $10 million breach of contract lawsuit over an unreleased workout DVD.

In 2005, the singer filmed a exercise instructional for fitness company SpeedFit, but the shoot quickly took a humiliating turn when Jess allegedly turned up to the studio “tipsy.”

Her manager-father Joe reportedly refused to sign off on the project, preventing the SpeedFit boss Alex Astilean from releasing the DVD.

“Jessica was a mess during that shoot,” an insider revealed in an interview with Radaronline this week.

“They asked her to come back and re-shoot, but she refused, and that’s why she’s facing a lawsuit now.”

Heres the video:

Fabolous Credit Cards Declined At Restaurant

According to a story from Bossip, the rapper Fabolous had some credit card troubles when he and his entourage were partying at a restaurant in Atlanta.

Fab and his crew showed up at the Eros World Tapas Bar on Saturday (January 24) with an entourage of more than 20, a source said. They asked for "the usual excess of champagne and alcohol, so the manager asked for a credit card to start a tab."

This is when the trouble began. The rapper's credit cards were all decline, said the report.

"By the fifth credit card, the entourage member designated to take care of his tab goes outside," the source revealed, "only to start a fight with the outside bouncer. He tripped and fell, hitting his head on the concrete and started bleeding."

This is when the manager called an ambulance. But, when the entourage member saw the police, he began "running away, blood oozing down his face."

Despite the mishap, Fabolous and his entourage stayed, ordered champagne, but had to pay in cash.

At press time, reps for both the restaurant and the rapper declined to comment.

Ashlee Defends Big Sis Jess


We all know its EVERYWHERE about Jessica Simpson at a recent gig looking "fat". I put that in quotes because I dont consider her fat...it just wasnt the right outfit. 

Ashlee Simpson feels the need to defend her sister:

“Since when did a woman’s weight become newsworthy? I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister's weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman's weight or figure.

All women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you're a celebrity, there shouldn't be a different standard.

Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend?

I seriously doubt it. How can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter.”

What do you think? Yay for Ashlee for sticking up for Jess or they both need to be quiet?

Why Weezy? Why?

Kelly Rowland Parts Ways With Her Manager


Kelly Rowland has officially ended her relationship with Mathew Knowles and Music World Entertainment.

The 27-year-old singer will still be represented by Music World as a member of Destiny’s Child, but Beyoncé’s father will no longer manage her as a solo artist.

“Mathew Knowles has been a positive influence in my career. I have had great success under his guidance—both as a member of Destiny’s Child and with my solo projects. Although we have decided to part ways professionally, the Knowles family and the entire Music World Entertainment team will always be my family,” Rowland said in a statement released through her publicist.

Mathew Knowles also issued a statement: “After a very positive meeting between Kelly Rowland and myself, we have amicably agreed to end our professional relationship. My company, Music World, will continue to manage Destiny’s Child as a group. As an artist Kelly has incredible talent and I only wish her the best. We will always be family first and foremost, and as a dad I only have love for Kelly.”

Rumor has it..Kelly is in the works to sign with 19 Entertainment (who signed Jordin Sparks and Carrie Underwood).

JT Says He Was Humbled To Be Working With Madonna


Justin Timberlake sat down with Katie Couric and weighed in on his most recent hit Saturday Night Live skit, in which he plays a dancer in Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video.

"Put a grown man in a leotard and that's just already funny," he tells Katie in the interview, airing Feb. 4 at 9 on CBS as part of the news anchor's All Access Grammy Special. "[After that] we couldn't go anywhere but up."

Justin has already won six Grammy's, and is nominated this year for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" for his performance on Madonna's hit "4 Minutes featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland."

Of his burly co-collaborator, Justin says they share "a musical kinship."

"We have a crazy chemistry in the studio. [We're] like two painters. Somebody slaps a color on a canvas and the other one starts working with it," he says.

Even though he's a big star in his own right, working with Madonna must have been scary, right? JT says he was humbled to be working with the queen of pop, but that "she's short, so I wasn't afraid at all."

Jess Simpson's Trainer Defends Her Weight Gain


While high-waisted jeans might not be flattering on anyone, Jessica Simpson set the gossip world buzzing while performing onstage at WKIS's Chili Cookoff in Florida. The pop princess was flaunting a noticeably fuller figure that seemed to be squeezed into a black tanktop, double belts and the denim pants.

But while the country singer, who has struggled with her weight before, might seem to have packed on the pounds, her one-time trainer is defending the blonde bombshell.

"She has curves where a woman needs to have curves," Harley Pasternak tells Extra of his former client. "We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she's healthy. She's still sexy. She's still a beautiful woman. And I have no problem with the way she looks." He adds, "I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier."

The fitness guru and author of The 5-Factor Diet, who worked with J-Simp on Major Movie Star, says, "Jessica was a fantastic client. I think Jessica has a really healthy perspective on her healthy body image and looks like a woman. I would take her body any day over somebody who's emaciated and looks unhealthy."

The outfit of choice wasn't the right one anyway.

Who's One Year Older? And Uglier


Tiers of tasty cupcakes. Check. Rock star blow out. Yep. All of your closest pals. Of course! Nick Carter got exactly what he wished for at his 29th birthday bash. After all, he is Mr. I-Want-It-That-Way.

Donning an AC/DC vintage t-shirt on his newly svelte body, Carter celebrated downstairs at the Key Club in Hollywood Monday night. Backstreet buds Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean – taking a break from recording their upcoming album – even came by for a mini reunion to surprise their friend.

"They shut off all the lights and did a surprise for Nick downstairs early in the night," says an onlooker. "They all yelled surprise and they had cupcakes for him."

Little bro, Aaron, hung out with the birthday boy in the VIP section where guests, including former 'N Sync singer J.C. Chasez, enjoyed a tower of Sprinkles cupcakes and jammed to a live performance by the house band, Steel Panther.

"Nick was good. He and his friends were just laughing up a storm in their VIP booth," adds the source of the group.

The high note of the evening hit when the birthday boy jumped on stage for an impromptu performance.

"He sang 'Don't Stop Believin' by Journey like everyone does. The crowd was egging A.J. on to get up on stage but he wouldn't do it," says the source adding, Carter "looked like he had a great time."

Kings Of Leon Rock For A Good Cause


They may subscribe to a hard-partying rock'n'roll lifestyle, but Kings of Leon are really a bunch of softies.

That was apparent Saturday night at Chicago's House of Blues, where the Tennessee foursome strutted and howled their way through a sold-out benefit show for the University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital. In addition to the roughly 1,000 fans who shelled out $150 for a ticket, the band was happy to entertain some of the hospital's young patients, too.

"We met some really beautiful kids today," frontman Caleb Followill said onstage. "It's a wonderful world we live in."

Sentiment aside, the Kings delivered one hell of a raucous set. Now finally experiencing the recognition stateside that they've enjoyed in Europe and Australia, the Followills are coming into their own as one of America's best live rock bands. They proved it with spot-on renditions of Only by the Night's "Sex on Fire," which saw fans pump their fists in unison with the rhythm, and power ballad "Fans," off 2007's Because of the Times.

The night was was a high-energy crush of music -- but no one lost sight of the evening's driving cause. From the silent auction of sports and music memorabilia to benefit the hospital, to the gold ribbons the band wore to support cancer research, there was plenty to applaud.

"Tonight isn't about us and it isn't about you," Caleb reminded the audience during the encore. "This is one of the finest things we've done as a band, and we're glad you could all be here with us."

Kanye & The Dream Working On Joint Album

    

After he finishes putting out two albums this year (Love vs. Money and Love King), The-Dream plans to hit the studio with Kanye West for a joint album the pair have been discussing. “The fourth album you hear from me will probably be a record that’s done with Kanye,” he told DJ Skee on his HD2 New Music Show (watch below).

But first, Kanye wants Dream to raise his celebrity stature. Aside from penning No. 1 singles for Beyoncé and Rihanna, the singer-songwriter is still relatively unknown as an artist. “I told [Kanye] I was gonna lift my profile.”

You can get a taste for what the new duo will have in store when The-Dream’s sophomore album Love vs. Money hits retail on March 3. The Def Jam labelmates collaborated on a track called “Walking on the Moon.” The album also boasts collaborations with Mariah Carey (”My Love”), Ludacris, Fabolous, and Lil Jon (”Let Me See the Booty”).

Is Backstreet Boy AJ McLean Losing The Battle With Alcohol?

AJ McLean is a recovering alcoholic -- so it was heartbreaking to see the Backstreet Boy stumbling out of the Key Club last night, appearing to be wasted out of his mind.

As McLean nearly falls into the street, one of his friends calls him out -- right out in the middle of Hollywood -- emotionally confronting the guy who went to rehab for alcohol and cocaine abuse in 2001... and again in 2002.

Witnesses inside the Key Club say they saw McLean taking shots and drinking beers during the show. After the confrontation, McLean's friends forced him into a cab and sent him home.

McLean was reportedly six years sober in 2008. Calls to McLean's rep have not yet been returned.

Lady GaGa Didn't Want To Be A Pussycat Doll


Lady Gaga turned down the chance to join the Pussycat Dolls - because they weren't "right" for her.

The New York-born singer - who reached number one in the UK and US with her debut single Just Dance - says pursuing a solo career was more important to her than joining the popular girl group.

She says, "I was writing tracks for them at the time but I had my vibe and my own style.

"Their style is not mine fashion-wise…it wasn't right for me."

Lady Gaga, real name, Joanne Stefani Germanotta, recently spoke of her determination not to become a one hit one wonder.

She said, "I don't wanna be one song. I wanna be the next 25 years of pop music.

"But it's really hard to measure that kind of ambition. That kind of blonde ambition is looked at with a raised brow, because most artists don't have longevity today, especially in fun music that's about underwear and pornography and money."

Miley Cyrus Copied Michael Jackson

Miley Cyrus video blogged on MileyWorld recently to clear up some more rumors about her vid, “Fly on the Wall.”

The 16-year-old singer/actress shared, “I was on iTunes today and ‘Fly on the Wall’ is doing really good. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Some people were upset because they think I copied Michael Jackson in my video. That was the point because I like Michael Jackson. He’s amazing. That was kind of the point — we wanted to do something like [his classic hit song] ‘Thriller.’”

Taylor Blogs About Her Bathroom


Taylor Swift on the set in L.A. of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation with star George Eads.

The 19-year-old Fearless female just returned home from filming her guest spot on the popular CBS drama and found something wonderful waiting for her.
She writes, “While I was in LA, my mom re-arranged my bathroom. As you can imagine, my bathroom looks different now. When I left for LA, my way of storing all of my make up and hair products was to pile it all on my bathroom counter. Most of it was grouped together in a very organized system (the pile). That’s not to say the system was not flawed. There was one tiny, insignificant recurring problem.. If you pulled one thing out of the middle of the pile, it would create a giant avalanche of lip gloss and eye shadow and other various cosmetics (sometimes a container of powder, which was undoubtedly left halfway closed– SO much fun to clean up!). I was fine with my system. 17% of the time, it worked perfectly without disastrous results. I wasn’t going to complain about it because whining isn’t really my thing, and I didn’t have time to create another system (this takes planning and brainstorming!). So my bathroom has stayed the same terrible mess of piled up beauty products for two years.. while I traveled the world with the sad, unorganized state of my bathroom perpetually weighing in the the back of my conscience. Then suddenly… EVERYTHING changed. I came back from LA and discovered a whole new world.”“My bathroom is now a magical, wondrous place with cabinets for storing make up and hooks on the door for holding scarves. There are even drawers for my hair brushes and incredible little shelves for my towels! There’s a new shower curtain in place of the one I’ve had since 7th grade (the one that has always secretly creeped me out a little, because it’s all these people standing around and it really looks like they’re watching me. Which was weird. I never liked them, and I’m glad they’re gone.) There are little windows in one of the dressers, and through it, I can see the candles I used to have stashed randomly on the counter. Now they have their perfect little home, all gathered together in their tiny, organized sanctuary.

“But then I turned around and was startled by something… Where was my Britney Spears poster…. No, this can’t be right… WHERE is it?!? I searched the room frantically for a few seconds before finding it’s new spot. My Britney Spears poster (from 6th grade) had been relocated to my bedroom, which is another AMAZING upgrade. This way, I see it more often and it more proudly displays my unwavering devotion to Britney Spears. My jewelry has been neatly placed into these little jewelry containers that separate your necklaces so they don’t get tangled into a huge unrecognizable, mangled ball that is IMPOSSIBLE to untangle. That used to happen to me all the time, but NOW it’s preventable!

“Also, I found so many things that went missing over the years.. The most notable find would have to be my glasses. I couldn’t believe it, but there they were! Apparently they had been lost somewhere in the giant pile of cosmetic doom.. I eventually gave up the search after a few weeks. Now they’re back! The moral of the story is… My mom is wonderful and we apparently share the same hobby: Compulsively organizing and straightening up around the house whenever we’re bored.

“I can’t wait to tell you all about LA and my life-changing guest appearance on CSI. Basically… When I’m really old and can only remember one story about my life to go back and relive, and tell over and over and over again to the point where my grandchildren roll their eyes and leave the room…… That’s the story. Ah, I can see it now. ‘You know, when I was a youngster, I got to guest star on CSI! It was marvelous! So marvelous, it was!’ It was that good. I’ll tell you all about the rest. I love you with all my heart. lovelovelove -T- “

Adele Writes For The Pussycat Dolls


British soul singer Adele has revealed that she has written a song for the Pussycat Dolls.

“I wrote one song I wanted to get to the Pussycat Dolls. But I don’t know how to get it to them,” the “Chasing Pavements” singer-songwriter told Denver’s Westword newspaper. “I think it’ll need bikinis in the video, and I don’t want to wear a bikini in a video.”

The Grammy nominee also disclosed that she is a fan of Beyoncé and used to mimic the “If I Were a Boy” hitmaker before finding her own sound. “I used to try to sound like Beyoncé and I’d sing Destiny’s Child songs all the time.”

Although you probably won’t see her in a bikini anytime soon, Adele will appear at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards where she is nominated in four categories including Record of the Year and Best New Artist. The show airs live on February 8 from Los Angeles.

Lil Wayne To Release Rock Album


Lil Wayne will release his first rock album Rebirth on April 7.

Rebirth is not Tha Carter IV that fans have been awaiting since Weezy dropped his multi-platinum LP Tha Carter III last year. Instead, it’s an entirely rock album that may showcase his newly-honed guitar skills.

The album’s first single is called “Prom Queen” and will debut online after a live MySpace.com stream of his concert in San Diego, Calif., on January 27.

The New Orleans MC calls the album a “birth of a new beginning.” “This is something brand new, so we don’t want it to be some experimental thing, ’cause some people are not gonna like this,” he told MTV News.

Wayne is not the first rapper in recent memory to release a non-hip-hop album. Kanye West strayed from the norm with 2008’s 808s & Heartbreak, which debuted at No. 1 and spawned the hit singles “Love Lockdown” and “Heartless.”

Kelly Osbourne Checks Into Rehab

Kelly Osbourne checked herself into rehab, her mother Sharon confirmed to Radaronline.com.

"Yeah, Kelly's in rehab," Sharon said of her daughter. What else can we say?" Sharon went on. She knew that it was the right thing to do at this point, and we're proud that she did it. The family is all standing behind her. Kelly knew that she needed help, and she's getting it."

Kelly, who entered rehab for a painkiller addiction in 2004, checked herself into a facility outside the L.A. area for 30 days.

Sharon declined to say what Kelly is being treated for saying, "Kelly will tell you herself when she gets out. We just pray that everything's going to be okay."

"This is one of the absolute worst things that a parent can face, for their child to go through rehab. And not once, but twice. However, we are all very glad Kelly's doing it."

More Drama Over Britney's Newest Single


The Parents Television Council is warning parents and radio stations not to broadcast Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy" because the organization believes it "would violate the broadcast indecency law" if aired between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Saying the title phrase quickly out loud produces a sound akin to spelling out the F-word, says PTC president Tim Winter. "There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it's certainly not about a girl named Amy," he says of the track, the third single from Spears' new Jive album, "Circus."

"It's one thing for a song with these lyrics to be included on a CD so that fans who wish to hear it can do so, but it's an entirely different matter when this song is played over the publicly-owned airwaves, especially at a time when children are likely to be in the listening audience," Winter says.

Founded in 1995, the PTC describes itself as "a non-partisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment." Jive was unavailable for comment on the PTC's advisory.

The controversy isn't stopping U.S. radio from playing "If You Seek Amy." Six top 40 stations have the song in rotation this week, enough to place the track at No. 92 on the Billboard Pop 100. Leading the pack is WFLZ-Tampa, Fla., which has played it 19 times.

"We're confident the version of the song we air is not crossing any lines," PD Tommy Chuck tells Billboard.com, adding that WFLX plays not only a Jive-created edit of the song that changes "Seek" to "See" as well as a jokey version where morning host MJ shouts his name every time the word "Amy" appears.

Digitally, "Amy" has sold 107,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Rihanna Wants To Be An Actress


Rihanna is hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow pop stars Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Hudson - by making a successful transition from music to movies.

The Pon Da Replay hitmaker, 20, made her acting debut in a cameo role in Bring It On: All or Nothing - which was released on August 8, 2006. But she is hoping to take her career big screen even further - and become a huge Hollywood star.

She tells OK! magazine, “I’d love to star in some movies, that’s my next goal. I love my music but I want to get into movies.”

But the singer, real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty, doesn’t plan to just conquer the movie industry: “I want to start some businesses of my own,” she adds. “I like clothes, I love make-up, so maybe I could have a hand in some of those things.”

Soulja Boy Gives Tips On Swagger


Soulja Boy shares his tips on swagger:

Here are five Soulja Boy-sanctioned steps you can take to turn your swagger on a hundred, thousand, trillion.

1. Put Cleanliness First
“Your hygiene gotta be good. Good shower, good teeth brushing.” And not just with any particular bar soap. “Gotta use that Soulja Boy Swag Soap!” If you can’t find that in your local drugstore, then he recommends sudsing with Zest.

2. Keep the Domepiece Tight
Proper hair is a must for both sexes. “Gotta get that fresh line-up; gotta get the braids re-did. If you a girl, gotta get the fresh perm.”

3. Show Your True Colors
“[You] gotta be matching from head to toe. Can’t nothing be offset. Gotta have the yellow hat, blue jacket, yellow pants, blue shoes, yellow diamonds, blue earrings! You gotta be super-duper color coordinated, swagged down, you feel me?”

4. Use Currency as a Hanky
“I turn my swag on by blowing my nose with $100 [bills].” Yes, we saw that in the video!

5. Forget the Recession
“Gotta ride an H2 Hummer that takes $200 to fill up in a recession and [there] ain’t no gas nowhere. That’s how you turn your swag on… Super ballin’!”

Miley Isn't A Poser And Likes Iron Maiden

The 16-year-old pop star (and her older sis Brandi) shares with her club members, “I think MileyWorld is just the perfect place to get some thing out in the open. MileyWorld has the best Miley fans ever. I know that you guys support [me] and I love that. I think that is awesome that you can be loyal and amazing fans. I am extremely, extremely grateful for that. So thank you guys so much and I love you!”

Miley goes on to say, “I’m sure you all have seen me rocking an Iron Maiden shirt lately and I know there’s been some people saying, ‘Oh, she’s a poser,’ and ‘The only reason she’s wearing Iron Maiden is because she wants to be a rock star.’ So, Iron Maiden — ‘Run To The Hills’, ‘Fear of the Dark’, ‘Running Free,’ [all] good song(s), check it out. So thank you guys. I actually do run Iron Maiden.”

Behind The Scenes:Madonna Louis Vuitton Photoshoot

Here is a behind-the-scenes video of Madonna and Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs via UK’s Marie Claire.

We get a look into some of how the campaign was shot, which took place at LA’s Café Figaro.

“I just blurted out, ‘I think we should do Madonna,’” Marc has said. “I was totally just blown away by it, and moved by her performance, by what she had to say, and her energy.”

This video was for the LV Spring/Summer 2009 ads that were released last month.

Jonas Bros Surprise President Obama's Daughters


Getting quite the treat during their first overnight stay in the White House, Malia and Sasha Obama got a warm (surprising) welcome from the Jonas Brothers!

As their President papa and First Lady mother hit up the inauguration parties until the wee hours of the morning, the girls welcomed a few friends from their new school over for movie time and a scavenger hunt.

After watching “Bolt” and “High School Musical 3,” the White House scavenger hunt got underway - ending with Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas hiding behind the final door.

And while the meet-up was surely a treat for the Obama girls and their friends, the JoBros seemed quite pleased with the visit as well, as Kevin told press before the trip, “I just wanna hang out at the White House!”

Paula Abdul Says Shes A Heavy Influence On Pop Stars

Paula Abdul believes she has been heavy influence on pop stars like Beyonce and Rihanna.

The American Idol judge, 46, says the the former Destiny's Child star and the Umbrella hitmaker owe a lot to her days as a pop star and her duet with a cartoon cat in the video for hit song Opposites Attract.

She says, "My videos stand the test of time.

"They are like the almanac for every performer. Even Rhianna has come up to me and said 'I hope you don't mind.' And Beyonce. You can see the influence of what I've done.

"It's really fun to see that I've left a mark. It was my idea to create an animated character. It takes a lot of focus, a lot time, and a lot of money."

The Ting Tings Ban Lights



BRITS nominees The Ting Tings have put a ban on fancy lighting for health reasons.

Drummer Jules De Martino suffers with an eye problem which can cause fits similar to epilepsy.

Singer Katie White told me: “We don’t have strobe lighting any more because Jules has been having fits.

“That’s the reason he wears sunglasses all the time, to prevent dizzy spells.”

The 34-year-old sticksman’s swollen right eye has been a long-running problem but the duo’s chart-topping exploits have only made it worse.

Katie, 25, said: “It gets worse if he’s tired or if the lights are too bright, or with flash photos. We’ve done hundreds of shows in the last year, which takes its toll after a while.”

The Salford twosome, who will perform at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival, have devised a stage show with screens rather than extravagant lighting.

Jules explained: “We’re using screens to highlight what we do on stage because there’s only two of us up there.”

One of the bonuses of wearing shades is that nobody recognises Jules without them. Katie added: “He can go out wherever he wants and nobody bothers him.”

The duo release new single We Walk on February 23 before heading out on a seven-date UK tour.

Daddy Winehouse Recalls Amy Almost Dying Twice


Amy Winehouse's father said his drug-ravaged daughter came "close to death" twice.

Mitch Winehouse said the singer was "lying in bed for days in a dark room" in the upcoming documentary "Saving Amy," according to Hello! magazine.

"She was close to death twice," he said. "We have been working a lot to get her to where she is right now."

Where she is now is apparently drug-free, says Mitch Winehouse, who, while no fan of her husband Blake Fielder-Civil, still found it hard to inform Amy of his divorce filing following photos of her frolicking on the beach with rugby player Josh Bowman.

"I had to call Amy before she heard about [the divorce] from someone else," Mitch Winehouse said. "She asked me, 'Daddy, why does he want to divorce me?' I said, 'You know I don't like him, but I have to admit that your behavior with another man is not what marriage is all about."

Jess Simpson Sprays Her Hair With Perfume


Jessica Simpson sprays her hair with perfume so she doesn't have to wash it. The singer-and-actress was advised to only shampoo her long blonde locks two or three times a month by her hairdresser Ken Paves, so she uses fragrances to cover the smell when her locks need a clean. A source said: "Jessica's tresses are often greasy, but she hides it well. She wears hats or reaches for the Hairdo, the clip-on extension line she created with Ken. If her hair starts to smell, she just spritzes it with perfume from her own range!" Jessica is not the only star who shies away from cleansing her hair. British actress Emily Mortimer recently revealed she uses dry shampoo because she hates washing her hair. The 'Match Point' actress admitted: "I'm very unhealthy. I hardly ever get my hair cut and use Batiste Dry Shampoo so I don't have to wash it every day."
