Pick Up Paris? Trash on eBay The heiress’ garbage could become your treasure – for a buck or two – after 2 LA scavengers put up the junk they found while dumpster diving outside Paris’ house on eBay. [NY Daily News]
Germany Bans Cruise Flick Germany has barred production of a World War II era film starring Cruise from shooting at the country’s historical sites, as the government does not recognize Scientology as a religion, but believes it to be a cult. [E Online]
Pics: Brit Can?t Keep Her Shirt On Oops – she did it again (and again, and again). Britney was snapped without her top on ( might be a little NSFW) while trying on clothes at an LA boutique. [Just Jared]
Check out this pic of Christina Aguilera in China before a concert on Monday. She’s looking a little busty and wearing one of those "OMG, she’s totally hiding her baby bump in that unflattering dress!" dresses. Actually her outfit is kind of cute. What’s not cute is that she revealed that she wants to move on from singing to…acting. Of course she does. What singer with an armful of Grammy awards and a basement cluttered with thousand dollar bills doesn’t want to ruin her career with a crappy movie?
"I am looking forward to moving into another form of what I feel is another
creative outlet for me and that would be acting," she told reporters today in Shanghai. Girlfriend better be knocked up – it’s the only thing that could possibly distract her from making such an ill-fated career move.
Foxy Brown is denying being victimized in a recent altercation, but the NYPD claims it’s true. Oh, who to believe? According to the boys in blue, the rapstress was assaulted by four women early Saturday morning in an incident so bizarre it makes all of Brown’s previous nail-salon cage-matches seem tame by comparison. Apparently Brown was trying to dump her boyfriend after finding out he was a pimp with a criminal record, so the man in question called four of his whores. They came over and beat the hell out of Foxy — tearing out her weave, ripping off her hearing aid and stealing her purse (and $500). That, however, didn’t stop her from telling The New York Post: "I have friends all over Brooklyn but I was not there last night. I just got back this morning from Miami… a lot of the time people mistake me for someone else or people always call in these false tips. I don’t know why. I guess it’s just part of being a celebrity." Brown was initially cooperating with police, but has allegedly stopped doing so since. Who do you believe?
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.
Beef was on the menu of a brunch in Los Angeles on Sunday, where a scuffle broke out between T.I. and Ludacris‘ Disturbing tha Peace Records partner Chaka Zulu aka the man whose name you are most jealous of. Seriously, who wouldn’t want the melodious lungs of Chaka Khan coupled with the warrior spirit of Shaka Zulu? Chaka Zulu may be the closest we’ve come yet to a perfect human being and I say that solely on basis of his name.
Anyway, details are scant but T.I. is said to have punched the face of Chaka, the partner of Luda, his on-again, off-again rival at the Power Brunch event hosted by Warner Music Group EVP Kevin Liles. An entourage-wide scuffle is said to have then broken out, only to be broken up by the police minutes later. In the end, one woman was injured and, according to a witness, T.I.’s shirt was torn. And the whole place swooned!
I dedicate two anti-violence tracks from hip-hop’s golden era to T.I., West Coast All Stars’ "We’re All in the Same Gang" and the Stop the Violence Movement’s "Self Destruction." T.I., your permanently fastened sunglasses don’t fool me: you need some cooling out.
Learn from your elders, T.I. [People / Images: Getty]
Britney seems to be headed back toward another meltdown, and it’s not just because those whack extensions are hurting her head. Rumors that the pop star is attempting to obtain a restraining order against her mom are getting louder. X17 is reporting that she is P*SSED about her mom’s visits with her two grandkids at K-Feds house, and wants to use the restraining order to keep Grandma Spears away from Sean and Jayden. Her ammo? Britney’s allegedly accusing her mom of abusing prescription pain meds. Like mother, like daughter, apparently!
Check out Brit’s bizarre message to her mom, after the jump!
Britney: Slacks Off on Secret Show The washed up starlet is scheduled to surprise fans with a performance at Cyndi Lauper’s June 30th "True Colors" tour, but she was a no show at her dancer auditions. Too busy buying birds, perhaps? [People]

Jessica Effs Up Dolly Song – Again After flubbing the lyrics at a December benefit, Simpson tried once again to rock out Dolly Parton’s hit "Nine to Five", but she messed up second time. Apparently numbers and words really throw the blond beauty off. [NY Daily News]
Brit "It" couple Pete Doherty and Kate Moss are back with another installment of their intermittent broadcast, playing the same song they did last time (wherein they declare "Sonny and Cher we ain’t." Indeed.), only this time dressed in military uniforms. The song’s actually pretty catchy, except for Kate laying on the expletives. In other Kate n’ Pete news, Pete "Never Met a Needle He Didn’t Like" Doherty will release his junkie diaries in the form of "Book of Albion," featuring the following prediction for the pair’s nuptials: "Smack and needle-free we shall marry in the summer and I become 10 times happier than any given smackhead. Huzzah!" The book will also include a love note from Kate: "You have touched my heart and soul you little f**ker . . . You make me high my sweet. My skin shivers and longs to be held by you." Hate to see what she puts in her kid’s lunchbox.
This is possibly the best Britney rumor we’ve heard in a longgggg time. X17 is reporting that the starlet’s visit to an attorney’s office yesterday may be her first step in obtaining a restraining order against her mother! Apparently their reconciliation is not going that well, and a still bitter Britney wants to keep Lynne Spears away from her grandchildren. All’s fair in love, war and family drama!
Meanwhile, Brit’s representative has revealed that her comeback album release date has been pushed back to 2008, which means more time for her to do ridiculous things, like wearing matching shorts with her assistant (complimented by pink snow boots, natch) while buying a pet bird. Who needs an album when we’ve got craziness to enjoy?
