Finally – proof that Britney Spears is a HUMAN! The always-wasted singer apparently wanted a little Federlove for her birthday (what, $30,000 in furs wasn’t enough?) and made a call to her ex asking him to join her in celebrating her b-day. She wanted some ex sex! A source revealed that Brit had to use pal Paris’ phone because she couldn’t find her own (too many mojitos, maybe?). A source revealed that, “She begged him to come out with her, [but] Kevin reminded her that one of them needed to be a parent and take care of the boys. Then she hung up on him. Kevin said she was drinking.”
Is the Fed-love really that good? It’s too bad Kevin wasn’t at Brit’s recent video shoot, because maybe that would have motivated her to go. Britney almost bailed on the shoot, and only went – 12 hours late – when she learned that her label was going to give it to another singer on the label. Not wanting to be outdone by eager up and comer, Samantha Jade, Brit got off her ass and schlepped to the vid. Who knew they could repurpose shoots like that? Sounds like Jive isn’t willing to let Britney waste their money anymore. [NYP. Getty]

All Mariah Carey Pics
The world would be a poorer place without Mariah Carey. The R&B princess works tirelessly for our collective amusement (today, for instance, sees the release of The Adventures of Mimi, the starlet’s concert DVD that features a performance from 2006). In 2005, she released The Emancipation of Mimi, the best-selling record of the year, and was named the sixth richest woman in entertainment, according to Forbes magazine, as of last January. The lady’s worth around $225 million, which, unless you’re Bill Gates and/or the Federal Reserve, is nothing to sneeze at. She’s currently at work on her next studio album, due out in the spring. But that’s not why we’ve included her here, today. No, the reason why she’s made our Hottie of the Week list is because she’s totally delectable. And that episode of Cribs, when she was on the StairMaster in lingerie? That’s been burned into our brains. Permanently.

Mariah Carey Smells Like 2005
As 2007 dwindles down, we look back at our favorite tracks. Each Tuesday through the end of the month, we’ll sing the praises of the 20 songs that made our year. See what made the cut, and let us know what you think of our choices.
Eve, “Tambourine,” from Here I Am (GEFFEN)
Never has a bait-and-switch so bruised dance floors around the world. When Eve’s alarm-call “Tambourine” first dropped, Paris hadn’t seen the inside of a jail cell, Dog the Bounty Hunter still had a career, and Lindsay had only been to rehab once. The world was ready for the triumphant return of the Caramel Bombshell, who managed to make hard-spit rhymes seem glam and menacing, like a Swarovski encrusted glock. All the pieces were in place: the Swizz Beatz-produced first single was a masterpiece ? an early ?70s funk sample from the Soul Searchers, the air raid beat, and the classiest lady in hip-hop employing a clever euphemism for dancing. Between reggaeton whoops, Eve demands we get on the dance floor. And that’s what we do. It remains unclear whether Here I Am contains other gems; the troubled disc has been pushed back ’til January.
Rehab mamas like Brit and Linds are always flaunting their sexual sides. Spears lets it all hang out by leaving her thong at home, and with boytoy after boytoy in her wake, “Firecrotch” Lohan is about the hotness, 24-7. So of course it makes sense that the ladies have one key sex item in common: a stripper pole. During the video for “Gimme More,” itself an electro anthem of insatiability and “crazy positions,” the Toxic One is onstage at a bar, sporting black hair, black leather, and black fishnets. Her pouting and writhing comes from experience. In I Know Who Killed Me, the Mean Girl has a scene where she’s hired as a hostess of a “gentlemen’s” club but winds up doing the nasty with radically dark eyes, some tossed-around hair, and a full exposed libido. Exhibitionism is in the house, y’all.
What we want to know: which trainwreck do you think is hotter when working the pole? Check both of the videos and hit the comments section.

Lindsay Lohan Actor Info
Just when we were getting totally turned off by Chris Brown‘s sugary sweetness, a wonderfully delicious scandal has dropped that makes him SO much more appealing! Chris, a singing and dancing machine with a PG – rating, is rumored to have been carrying on a sexual affair with his much older manager, and is reportedly in love with the woman, who was formerly a Senior VP at Def Jam. The romance is now supposedly disrupting Chris’ tour, and his mama, as expected, is PISSED, obvs. Her kid’s been getting busy with an older woman since he was 16, and now the affair is allegedly destroying his tour with Bow Wow – all in the name of Harold & Maude-esque love. Oh Chris, how we suddenly find you so much more appealing now. Kiss Kiss, indeed.
The singer has released a statement denying the whole thing, dropping the usual token phrases when these kind of rumors arise. He says, “Chris Brown and his manager Tina Davis have a strictly professional relationship,” the statement reads. “Ms. Davis has been instrumental in helping Chris achieve success as a multi-talented singer/dancer/actor. Rumors that the relationship goes beyond a working one are not only patently false, they diminish her efforts and his undeniable talents.”
Ya mean, her efforts and his talents in bed?

Britney: Most Searched Person of 2007
Because we all can’t get enough of her constant meltdowns and hair messes, Brit is the number one Yahoo! search of the year. The number two search: ‘Isn’t everyone sick of Britney Spears yet?’ [Reuters]
Britney Spears is 26-years old ya’ll! What will the next year of her life bring – a changed pop star or more of the same of sh*t? We’re guessing by the way she went out on the town to celebrate her big day – decked out in a choker necklace from 1992, a tight dress that pinched all the wrong places and a broken shoe – that twenty-six is gonna be a delicious disaster for B. We can’t wait!
The singer crashed a party hosted by Sharon Stone in Bel Air for Scandinavian designers, and turned the fete into her own birthday bash, complete with cake, champagne, and the world’s most atrocious white fur coat. Brit hit up the gift suite and snagged $30,000 worth of furs, diamond jewels worth $10,000 and some sunglasses with price tags in the thousands. Free! Happy birthday indeed. Around 11:30 PM the biggest present of all arrived when Paris Hilton sashayed her way through the paparazzi. The former BFFs headed back to the Four Seasons hotel for some celebrating and champagne. We can only imagine that the two giggled and toasted to a new year full of botched lip injections. Happy birthday indeed, Brit!

If you think a little thing like an attempted murder charge is going to shut Remy Ma up, think again. The outrageous hip-hop gangstress runs her mouth in the January/February issue of XXL, and the result is nothing short of her best performance in ages. Here are a few of her more…reckless quotes:
“I don’t like bitches. And I say ‘bitches,’ becasue if you have a p****, you’re a bitch. Even if you’re two-years-old. Like, look at this little bitch on the slide! Look at this little bitch with her Barbie in the playground!”
On how her life has changed since the attempted-murder charges:
“One of the first shows after it happened, I’m in the bathroom and this girl kept bumping into me. I’m like, normally this is when her face would go through the mirror. And if I put her face through the mirro, it’s like, ‘See, I told you she’s violent!’”
On her provocative fashion sense:
“I’d be getting dressed and getting my hair done, like, ‘The bloggers are gonna kill this outfit tomorrow.’ I’m wearing an orange sweat suit with lime-green spandex and f***in’ purple clogs and blue contacts, and I’m putting my bangs back blonde! I be getting dressed like, ‘Media Takeout‘s gonna have a field day tomorrow! Bossip, here I come!”
It’s somewhat comforting to know that possible jail time hasn’t made her any less of a mess, isn’t it? [Image: Getty]

It’s been 25 short years since Michael Jackson released Thriller and changed the music industry forever. In the intervening years, the self-appointed King of Pop has undeniably been plagued with problems, but notwithstanding his biography, Thriller, which has gone platinum an astounding 27 times, remains an incredible collection of hit singles. You can’t deny it. And if you try to deny it, we’ll play you “P.Y.T.” or something and dare you not to dance. Good frickin’ luck.
The 25th anniversary edition of the album will feature the videos, the music, a live performance, and the help of a few friends: Kanye West, will.i.am and Akon. We’re looking forward to “Billie Jean 2008″ with Kanye in particular, though hearing what Akon has going on “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” is a fairly intriguing proposal as well. In unrelated news: the Francis Ford Coppola-directed masterpiece Captain Eo will not be included, much to all of our sadness.
