Jessica Simpson‘s new movie, Blonde Ambition, is said to stink so bad that the film’s opening has been pushed back twice, and now may not come out at all. A source told the NY Daily News that "the release date was set for Aug. 3, and then it was delayed until the last week of August. Papa Joe then intervened and said he wasn’t comfortable with the level of competition from other films that month."
Her dad/manager/overall creepy dude may want to wise up to the obvious – that his precious baby girl just ain’t cut out for big screen success (Employee of the Month, anyone?). Jess needs to stick to what she’s good at – like going to the gym in cute outfits. Please enjoy the trailer to Blonde Ambition in the video above, and excuse us as we curl up into the fetal position and cry about Luke Wilson‘s crappy career choices.
The starlet gathered family and friends at a beach-front bungalow in Malibu yesterday for her 21st birthday bash, where the paparazzi caught Lindsay hanging with boozey ex Calum Best while dressed only in a bikini and the world’s nastiest pair of bright blue heels. Friends brought pricey gifts for the rehabbing actress, as they snacked and played volleyball while DJ and Lilo pal Samantha Ronson spun records. Fellow sobriety fan DJ AM stopped by, as did her mom Dina (Cartier gift in hand), and Lindsay captured the festivities – and the paps – on her giant camera. The party starting winding down around 2am and Lindsay ended her big day right where she had started it, at Promises Treatment Center. Pure Nightclub – eat your heart out.
LiLo Moves Out of Party Apartments Sources say Lindsay has slowly been moving belongings out of her place in LA’s Sierra Apartments, home to wild parties and stars such as Fred Durst, Matthew Perry, and her ex Harry Morton. [NY Daily News]

Fiddy goes to the video tape, giving a Zapruder film-type analysis of his flubbed performance of "Amusement Park" at Tuesday night’s BET Awards. 106 & Park, the Dateline of the hip-hop world, had the Vitamin Water mogul on to set things straight. Said hostess Rocsi, "He was fearin’ for his life, y’all." Isn’t that par for the course for 50?
According to the San Jose Mercury News, Lauryn Hill’s comeback concert in Oakland on Wednesday was a "fiasco," with the much-talented Hill "huffing and puffing like a weekend warrior," making the crowd wait over two hours, and at one point falling flat on her back. This bums us out to no end. Guess we’ll have to keep playing Miseducation.
Reunion You Want: Admit it — you’ll pony up the $60 (plus surcharge) to see Baby, Scary, Sporty, Posh and Ginger zigazig ha, transporting you back to those heady pre-Y2K days. Lucky for us Sporty cleared her calendar.
Reunion You Want But Don’t Get:Led Zeppelin. After days of rumors reporting they’re getting the old band back together, Rock Banshee Robert Plant has rubbished rumors, claiming "If there was one, then there wouldn?t be enough doctors to support it!?
Reunion You Don’t Want But Get:Bush. You know, Gavin Rossdale. He was in a band. Still nothing? Gwen Stefani‘s husband. Anyway, he misses "the band thing." He’s threatening a Live Earth reunion.
Now and then our Tour Survival Guide will check in with rockers about life on the road. Here’s Rooney‘s Robert Schwartzman and Ned Brower on mainlining sugary cereal, getting decked in England and forgetting where you’ve been.
Music For Celebs To Do Drugs To Ned Brower: We played four nights at the Roxy just before we left. Mischa Barton showed up in our dressing room on psychedelic mushrooms, which was really weird. Needless to say she loved the show.
Wherever You Go, There You Are Robert Schwartzman: I remember we were playing Austin, and I said, "It?s so awesome to be in Austin for the first time." The band was like, "Dude, we?ve played here before." On the mic. Like, "Robert we?ve played here." And I was like, "No we haven?t." Then some fans were like, "Yes. You have."
Beyonce may have been a big winner at last night’s BET Awards, but she certainly wasn’t winning any fashion awards. Jay’s lady took home awards for best female R&B artist and for her "Irreplaceable" video, but looked positively robotic while performing her new song "Get Me Bodied." According to JustJared.com, Bey stripped off her kevlar-like padding to reveal "$100,000 gold Balenciaga leggings and a matching bra top," in some Tron-like homage to a sexified C-3PO. And Beyonce’s on-stage get-ups aren’t the only thing coming under fire — singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwrightblasted Beyonce in this month’s issue of Spin Magazine, calling her songs "formulaic" and "mesmerising in the basest way." He then went on to say, "I’m really sick of Beyonce."
Justin Timberlake’s upbeat attitude couldn’t get past customs, because the millionaire pop star with the gorgeous girlfriend is being nothing but rude all over Europe. Last week on a sightseeing excursion in Norway, there was this incident. Just days later, in response to a child’s request for a photo, Timberlake shot back, "Do you want me to juggle too?" Later that evening, Timberlake went up on the roof of his hotel, only to throw things down, refuse pictures with fans, and ultimately spit on them.
Just when you thought Idol hysteria couldn’t get any more absurd, Idol: The Musicalcomes along. Slated for an Off Broadway run with previews beginning July 5th, the new musical will focus on a group of students in Steubenville, Ohio who meet daily to share in their worship of Clay Aiken in an abandoned barn that "doubles as a shrine" to Aiken. For real. The play reaches its climax when the midwest leg of the Idol Tour is announced, and along with the usual performances in Chicago and Memphis, there’s a stop in Steubenville as well. No word on how Clive Davis feels on this one…
Fabolous may have the No. 2 selling record in the country, but he still needs his mama. At a record release party for his album From Nothin’ to Somethin’ at Level, Fab’s mom Deborah Jackson took it upon herself to kick groupies out of the club’s VIP area, informing them, "You do not belong here!" The rapper, whose album sold over 158,000 records in its first week, also barged into the club early, with his bodyguards shoving the hostess after she told Fab and co. it’d be a few minutes, according to Page Six.
