She may be way more “hardcore” than Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears, but the punk pop starlet wants what they got. No, not a divorce by the age of 25, but a movie career. The?singer is reportedly in talks with Sony BMG (also her record label) to star in a”thriller feature film,” a source tells Page Six, “playing kind of a white-trash girl.”
Hm. How badly does Avril want us to make a joke right here? It’d be too easy, so we’ll just offer this bit of advice. Before she steps in front of the camera, she may want to sit down with some popcorn and watch the extended versions of Crossroads and Employee of the Month. Or perhaps Glitter, or maybe anything Madonna has done. The list goes on and on. Watch out Avril! Stick to what you know – gold records and silly outfits.

Sean and Jayden’s mama supposedly hit up Lola’s in Los Angeles last week, and tossed back a few cocktails. The bar’s manager told Us Weekly, "She had two Jack [Daniels] and Cokes and an orange-flavored martini, her whole visit was pretty low-key and she didn?t seem drunk."
Now, Britney is enough of a mess sober that she should probably steer clear of something that’s gonna make her go really crazy (check out these bizarre NSFW pics of Brit trying to keep her dress on in the middle of the day for proof). But we’re confused – was she ever even an alcoholic? Yes, we know she went nuts and boozed way too hard and skipped out on panties and cuddled with Paris for a while. And sure, she went to rehab. But didn’t she have post partum depression or something? She did say on her own site that while hitting "rock bottom," she doesn’t "think that it was alcohol or depression." And what’s better or more trustworthy than a self diagnosis? We’ll drink to that! Cheers, Britney!

Paris Speaks: No Special Treatment
Paris supposedly wants the world to know that she’s being treated just like every other inmate in the Lynwood jail. But don’t worry, when she leaves she’ll go back to being better than everyone else. [TMZ]
What is the deal with Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel? They are two hot, rich, twenty-somethings with awesomely buff bods and decent wardrobes. Can’t they just be happy together? The answer, apparently, is no, because they can’t seem to make up their minds about whether they are totally into each other and want to spend every second locking lips (and other, naughtier body parts), or if every moment together is pure, effing hell.
Are these two in love or do they hate each other’s guts? Find out after the jump.
Bob Barker is this year’s Barbara Walters, attempting to use his geezer-pull to get Rosie O’Donnell to host your grandmother’s other favorite show, The Price Is Right. The animal advocate has retired his skinny microphone, and he told reporters this week that CBS is having a meeting with Ro about picking up where he left off. However, the network may not be ready for a "lady host," as Barker also mentioned that they’ve only chatted with male contenders thus far. And really, in 2007, is anyone ready for a "lady host?" I’m shivering just thinking about it.
More on Rosie’s post-View plans, after the jump!
Poor Mandy Moore. First she split from flirty Zach Braff, then she battled depression, and now, just when things are starting to look up for the good girl, Britney rolls in trying to hog her limelight.
Last Friday, as paparazzi hovered outside a Santa Monica hotel where Moore was doing press interviews inside, Spears supposedly cruised by in her car, desperate for the cameras to turn on her. A source who saw the sad attempt go down said, "She drove really slowly and doubled back on herself to make sure that everyone who wanted to get a shot, got a shot."
Mandy has an album and a movie about to drop, and all Brit’s got going on is a bad weave and a nipple slip. Oh wait – and this great pic of her flipping the bird. She’s accomplished so much this week! How dare the photogs ignore her?

Tomkat joined Posh and her kids as they cheered on hubby David Beckham‘s final soccer (football, if you’re from the rest of the world) match with Spain’s Real Madrid. Now, most people hit up sporting events in face paint, faded t-shirts, and caps proclaiming team loyalty. This crew showed up like they were about to catwalk into some strange funeral-fashion show.
What is at all necessary about these outfits (click for pics)? Katie’s strange stripped minidress? Posh’s skintight black bodysuit held together by pink neon duct tape? Tom’s dress shirt opened ever so slightly to reveal his plastic chest? The matching hairdos? The sunglasses at night? The making out?
Beck’s team won, but the fans probably couldn’t even enjoy the fun because of all the celeb-insanity that was going on around them. The only normal ones there were the three Beckham boys, who matched in tiny versions of their dad’s uniform. But give them a few years and they’ll be all crazy and throwing bricks at people in Hollywood, just like another famous Brit offspring.

Just yesterday we reported that the original American Idol had fired her longtime manager as a result of her alleged fall-out with label head Clive Davis over her upcoming album My December. This afternoon, word has come via Kelly’s website that her upcoming summer tour has been canceled!
Kelly wrote on her site that, "The fact is that touring is just too much too soon," but a statement released by her representatives gives the darker details: "Plans for Kelly Clarkson’s summer tour have been shelved for now as the
singer and her team re-evaluate her show’s size and scope." Ticket sales for her shows were also lower than expected.
Eek. What is happening to our once solid, stable pop star? Could her album really be that bad? If she starts reaching for the clippers or crashing her car into trees we’ll know she’s in real trouble.
