Britney Spears‘ rival-turned-baby-gift-giver Christina Aguilera is speaking out on Brit’s behalf. The probably pregnant belter says of her fellow former Mouseketeer:
“Britney is a good person and a good mom. She’s been under so much pressure since she was a child. I don’t think any of us should judge her or jump to conclusions.”
And so, Christina Aguilera takes her place in history as an anti-gossip crusader, one rehabbin’ Cheeto-chompin’, fast-food-scarfin‘, bra-and-panty bathin‘, Southern-twangin’, child-seat-forgoin‘, comeback-attemptin‘ pop tart at a time. Good luck with that, Chrissy! [MSNBC / Image credit: Getty]
Box Set: Christina Aguilera
They’ve got all the money in the world and yet they still manage to make boneheaded moves. Here’s the dumb things some stars – and their pals – have been up to this week.
- Britney Spears has forsaken all sensible Hollywood advice and has decided to become her own publicist and business manager. Let’s invest in some Cheetos stock, ya’ll!
- Casey Johnson, the heiress to the company that bears her name (twice), has made Nicky Hilton her new baby’s godmother. As if the kid needs the influence of another crazy rich airhead in her life.
- Nice guy Ryan Seacrest treated pals to a booze-fueled dinner at Nobu, where one female guest drunkenly asked, "Beer doesn’t give you a yeast infection, right?" and later sang, "I’m not wearing pantyhose." Surprisingly, this ditzy lady was not Paula Abdul.
- K-Fed is apparently in talks to be a DJ at LA radio station KIIS-FM. We’ve heard Kevin talk, and it ain’t pretty, yo. Get ready for some dead air.
Pete and Ashlee: Wedding Ready?
Contrary to internet rumors that popped up yesterday, the rocker couple did not get engaged at the Live Earth concert a couple weeks ago. Give these two time – Ash is probably trying to learn from her sister’s mistakes! [Us Magazine]
Gwen Accuses Store of Copying Fashions

Did Britney Beat Up Her Mom?
Britney apparently got slap happy after her Mom arrived at her house unannounced to visit Sean and Jayden. When will people learn – you don’t mess with Brit! [MSNBC]
It’s been almost nine months since Britney kicked K-Fed to the curb and busted out her short-lived spell of hotness. Since then we’ve been anxiously awaiting her comeback, which has instead been one big letdown made up of rehab, buzzcuts and cheeseball tattoos. But Spears may have an opportunity to put a new face forward on August 31st, when she hosts the Las Vegas opening of the LAX nightclub at the Luxure Hotel.
We can almost see it now (cue dream sequence music): Britney – with set of hair extensions that costs more that $10 – appears in an actual bra and a dress that fits, and spends the night skipping the booze for energy drinks. Her fake nails have been buffed down and her ratty flips flops have been replaced with a nice pair of Louboutins. She discreetly chews Nicorette and only dons a cowboy hat for a few minutes, when the DJ plays "Cotton Eyed Joe". She then gracefully exits the soiree to enjoy a dinner of Cheetos and fine caviar. Make it happen Brit – dreams can come true (specifically, mine)!
X17 has posted of a video (and pics!) of Brit driving away from a store blasting what sources say is a new tune from the washed up pop starlet. While it certainly is exciting to hear ten seconds of Britney moaning "Yeahhhh" over beats, the real magic happen inside the store when she realizes she’s about to be accosted by a paparazzi swarm. After appearing shocked by the onslaught of cameras, she exits the vitamin shop while groaning like a dying (but still sassy) lamb about to be butchered. It is both hilarious and horrifying at the same time – and 100% Britney. Something tells me this is how she and her sons communicate at home. One dead sheep groan means "It’s time to change your diaper," and two groans roughly translates into " Get mommy her damn cigarettes, you idiot!"
More pics of Britney making the "Holy eff I’m horrified by the paparazzi – but look at my sexy pink bikini shirt!" face can be found here.

Brit: No Lovin? from Bodyguard?

James Blunt Sold Sister on eBay?
Yep, the sensitive rocker claims that he sold his sister on eBay to help her get to a funeral in Ireland. Even weirder – the winner of the auction not only flew his sis to the ceremony, but they started dating and are marrying this summer. Brits be crazy! [People]
The name of Britney’s new man has been nailed down as Daimon Shippen, who is possibly the same mustachioed security guy who helped Brit when she almost dropped Sean Preston on the street last year. X17 has some juicy tidbits on the protective giant:
- Approximately 34 years of age.
- He’s served as a production assistant on films.
- Was fired from his first bodyguard employment agency for allegedly owning a "sex toy/porn website." Uh oh…
- X17 says he "may not be into girls!" What is going on here?!
We’ve got Us saying that Daimon and Brit are definitely doing it, and a different report that reveals Britney’s boyfriend’s name is apparently Sam, and it’s not this beefcake at all! And supposedly this beefcake likes other beefcakes! We’re lost. Sounds like Brit might be too – as Children’s Protective Services visited her Malibu mansion three times last week due to her pool being unsafe for children. The visit forced the starlet to move her brood to the Four Seasons Hotel where she was spotted sobbing. It’s a good thing Brit has some big arms to hold her and a broad chest to lean on. Even if he doesn’t like girls, he’ll at least still let her cry. Cuz he’s on her payroll and really doesn’t have a choice.
