Britney Spears Wins Restraining Orders Against Ex-Manager, Ex-BF

Sam Lufti, Britney Spearssleazy ex-manager, and Adnan Ghalib, Spears’ skeevy ex-boyfriend, have been served restraining orders to keep them from trying to reach the singer. According to the suit, the pair are “working in concert to disrupt [father Jamie's] conservatorship, with an utter disregard for Ms. Spears’ health and well being.” Lufti is also accused of trying to send Spears’ message via her hairdresser, while Ghalib continues to orchestrate paparazzi stakeouts based on info Britney gives him about her schedule.

With arrangements for Britney’s upcoming tour becoming a major hassle for the family, it’s no surprise they’d want to make sure the goateed ghosts of meltdowns past can’t get near the fragile star. K-Fed’s enough hanger-on for anyone.

Jessica Biel Throws Justin Timberlake Surprise Birthday Party

JT got a big birthday surprise orchestrated by his girlfriend Jessica Biel yesterday when she threw him a surprise birthday party at the penthouse suite of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

The 100 plus guests like Leona Lewis noshed on buffalo wings, pizza, mini sliders, and homemade cupcakes while they watched the Super Bowl game.

Justin supposedly had no idea she was throwing him a surprise soiree for his 28th birthday – allegedly, he thought they were just checking into the hotel and heading over to another Super Bowl party.

Jessica was reportedly the “perfect hostess,” but sadly, she did not jump out of a cake naked as most partygoers had hoped. Oh well – there’s always next year! [Source: E! Online; Photo: Getty Images]

Flashback Lunch: Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Butt

One of the most impressive things about Bruce Springsteen‘s Super Bowl Half Time show was that he pulled it off without hypnotizing the audience with his butt. It might be hard for young people to understand, but there was a time when Bruce Springsteen’s greatest weapon was not his conviction or his energy—it was his butt. Born In The USA has sold three times as many copies as any other Springsteen album, and you want to know why? It’s because he put his butt on the cover instead of his face. Anyone at his label who thought it was absurd tp put the Boss’s butt in front of the American flag clearly hadn’t seen Bruce Springsteen’s butt. That butt made you proud to be an American.

Move Over Suze Orman, Duff Is The New Financial Genius

Would you take financial advice from a guy who got famous in the 90s for his teased hair and rocking it out with Guns ‘N Roses? Apparently, the people at Playboy.com think you should. Duff McKagan currently writes for SeattleWeekly.com, and in his latest column, the Velvet Revolver rocker revealed, “As of this week, I will not only be continuing my Seattle Weekly commitment, but also starting a new endeavor as a financial columnist at Playboy.com.”

Playboy.com readers can look forward to Duff’s musings on money which hopefully will echo his blunt words of wisdom in his SeattleWeekly.com column, where he dishes out random advice on everything from politics to how to talk to your kids about sex. Some highlights:

  • “Don’t smoke crack: This stuff, while maybe getting you off for a few moments, really wreaks havoc on those around you.”
  • “Call instead of text someone. (Better yet, meet for a f**king coffee)”
  • “Did you guys know there was a members-only sex club in Seattle?”
  • From “Why My Wife Still Thinks I’m A Badass”: “At least I can say ‘No!’ when my girls try to put pink ribbons in my hair.” [Source: SeattleWeekly.com; Photo: Getty Images]

Kim Kardashian Skipped Super Bowl To Do Squats

Even a celebrity-studded Super Bowl party can’t keep Kim Kardashian from working it out. What, you thought she kept that big badonkadonk tight and up high by sitting around drinking beer and watching football? Think again: Although she hit Tampa for some pre-game parties, Kim skipped the big game to head back to Los Angeles and film her new workout video.

Kim spent Super Bowl Sunday filming one of her three new fitness DVDs. On her blog, she said she felt “awful that this whole crew has to work on Super Bowl Sunday,” but to take away some of the pain, Kim set up a TV so her crew could catch some of the game in between filming her do leg lifts and jumping jacks.

Finally, Kim advocated the benefits of getting your heart pumping and your tush moving. “Working out is a way of life and I encourage everyone to do it and feel good about themselves,” she said. [Source: KimKardashian.com; Photo: Getty Images]

Porn Interrupts Super Bowl Broadcast In Tucson

Comcast subscribers in Tucson, Arizona saw more unncessary roughness than most during the Super Bowl last night. After the Arizona Cardinals scored an almost game-changing touchdown—with three minutes left in the game—viewers were rewarded with 10-30 seconds of the hardcore Club Jenna channel, free of charge. Surprisingly, families didn’t enjoy watching a woman fish a man’s penis out of his pants, let alone the ballsack boogie that followed.

“I just figured it was another commercial until I looked up,” said one viewer. “Then he did his little dance with everything hanging out.” About 80,000 homes were potentially blessed by the ballsack boogie, though HD viewers did not suffer (or enjoy, depending on your perspective) any interruption. Comcast has apologized and promised to figure out just what the hell happened (we’d guess “drunk Steelers fan in the tech department”).

You can check out just what Tucson residents saw on TMZ, with the naughty bits thankfully blocked out.

Bruce Springsteen: Almost 60 And Still Humping Things On Stage

To state the obvious, Bruce Springsteen must work out. The 59-year-old and his equally aged E Street Band blew more than a couple minds last night with their dexterous Super Bowl Half Time show. Dude humped the mic stand, humped his guitar—he even slid across the stage and humped a camera!

Bruce is lucky he didn’t sing in falsetto for the rest of the set. Check out more shots from the show in the gallery.

IOC Accepts Michael Phelps’ Apology For Smoking The Devil’s Lettuce

It had been such a great 2008 for Michael Phelps, and then, 2009 got off to a rough start when that photo of him smoking the hippie lettuce regrettably surfaced in News of the World on Sunday.

What’s an eight-time Olympic champion to do when they get caught red-handed hitting the bong? Issue an apology, of course, which, luckily the International Olympic Committee accepted today.

“Michael Phelps is a great Olympic champion,” the IOC said in a statement on Monday. “He apologized for his inappropriate behavior. We have no reason to doubt his sincerity and his commitment to continue to act as a role model.”

On Sunday, the U.S. Olympic committee expressed their disappointment in Michael. “We are disappointed in the behavior recently exhibited by Michael Phelps. Michael is a role model, and he is well aware of the responsibilities and accountability that come with setting a positive example for others, particularly young people.

“In this instance, regrettably, he failed to fulfill those responsibilities. Michael has acknowledged that he made a mistake and apologized for his actions. We are confident that, going forward, Michael will consistently set the type of example we all expect from a great Olympic champion.”

This was not Michael’s first time getting in trouble with the law. In 2004, he pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge.

As if he wasn’t getting enough ass already, now the honeys will surely be all up on him. Such a bad boy! [Source: KSL.com ; Photo: Getty Images]

Kate Moss Turns Actress

She’s famed for never opening her mouth to the press (although Scandalist once saw her walking in Primrose Hill laughing, so she does have a voice – fact!), but that hasn’t swayed Kate Moss from considering a career change. According to the News of the World, she’s planning on being the next M-T-A. (that’s Model-Turned-Actress, 1990s fans)

“She’s always had dreams of acting. Kate’s nervous but feels, with the right backing, she can make the transition from supermodel to Hollywood star,” the newspaper reports.

Apparently, she’s been hooking up with Leaving Las Vegas director Mike Figgis to get tips on her new acting venture. We’d urge caution, Kate. The road of a model’s career “diversity” is littered with corpses. Just think of Cindy Crawford and Fair Game! And Naomi Campbell’s star turn in Fat Slags! Actually, don’t. But tread carefully… [Photo: Splash News Online]
