The love fest continues as the hot-bodied pair hit Norway holding hands and looking all warm and fuzzy. Jessica even hung out with JT’s mom in Sweden, and they appeared just as close. So with all the love in the air, what’s the problem, you ask? Their ridiculous outfits (click here for pics)! These two are normally some of the best dressed stars out there (see photos, right), but Justin duds out in a pair of jean shorts with plaid trim that wouldn’t have been cool even in his N’Sync days. Jessica, GQ’s July cover model, is barely stunning in a housecoat that Florence Henderson could’ve rocked on The Brady Bunch. Wasn’t she like, the sexiest woman in the world a couple of years ago? Not anymore.
Please, Jess, Justin…Er, Justica. Bring your sexy back!
Just when you thought Idol hysteria couldn’t get any more absurd, Idol: The Musical comes 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…
Ever since the widow Love sold off 25% of Kurt Cobain‘s catalog and licensed his image for use by the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (yes, seriously, such a thing exists), the sadly deceased Nirvana frontman has been popping up in all sorts of places. For example, as pictured here, you can now buy the Kurt Cobain lunchbox, which holds all manner of tasteful suicide sandwiches and needle-drop soups. Kurt has also been memorialized as an action figure and in a key chain that doubles up as a liquor flask, in a move that we suspect was motivated by suits at megacorporations who were wondering if they could get Kurt to kill himself twice. This follows on the heels of Cobain’s image being used in a Doc Marten’s ad, which officially has turned us off British combat boots, like, forever.
She may have gone to rehab and changed her partying ways, but Britney’s attitude still stinks. Something set the starlet off recently at shoot for her new perfume, and she reportedly freaked, walked out, and refused to continue working. A source says, "She is not listening to anyone and doing exactly what she wants." This may explain another tidbit of Britsanity, which alleges that she is trying to win back her tank top loving ex, K-Fed. She’s apparently enlisted her mom for help, and pictures show her recently sporting a ridiculously huge diamond on her ring finger. Is this a sign that Spears wants to reconcile? Or does she just love massive bling?
Let’s be real: she better get Kevin back, because there’s no way she can make a decent perfume commercial without his magic arrow shooting skills. What kind of fantasy is it without that hunk of Feder-beef running around in the ad?

Lindsay: Still Playing Rehab Hooky
LiLo left rehab three times the other day, skipping the gym to head back to her apartment, where she moved truckloads of stuff out. Sounds like she’s definitely serious about staying in rehab for a while! [X17]

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!

Way to go, Christina Aguilera! The New York Post is reporting that the singer might be pregnant by her husband Jordan Bratman. How refreshingly normal. Not normal? U.K. rag The Sun says that the singer has also purchased Ozzy Osbourne‘s L.A. mansion, a home which, according to Ozzy, was something like the house in The Amityville Horror. Said the Prince of Darkness, "The house holds bad memories for me because it reminds me of the terrible time Sharon got cancer and of times when me and the kids were doped out of our minds." So . . . yeah. Good luck with that, Christina. Here’s hoping your moving crew includes a priest. In other news, The Sun is also reporting that Jack Osbourne slept with Paris Hilton. If you were looking forward to your Wednesday making sense, you’ve come to the wrong place.

The Seacrest-y and zesty Josh Duhamel has revealed the details of his first face-to-face encounter with his longtime girlfriend Fergie. Surprisingly, no barf bags were involved. They met in 2004 on the set of Josh’s show Las Vegas, on which the Black Eyed Peas performed. Says Josh of the magic moment:
"After they finished rehearsing, I was walking out, and all of a sudden she was walking toward me. I was like, Oh boy. She stopped. And this is so sad, but I said, in this desperate voice, ‘You’re hot!’"
Josh was either lying or showing that his definition of "hot" has nothing to do with the rest of the English-speaking world’s definition of hot. Either way, Fergie bought it. Sad. But Josh is so macho, right? He should have asked her if she needed a fillin’. Or he could have simply just grabbed his crotch at her. If the shot above (from 2005) is any indication, she’s into that. [People / Image credit: Getty]
