  • Hear Britney Spears lipsyning with music track removed. Cover your ears. Hilarious.

    [video -- get ready to cover your ears] Let’s get right to the point. Because nothing we could write could possibly be funnier than the sound of Britney Spears singing without a music track. In fact, there are lots of things we’d rather hear before we have to listen to Britney sing again. For example, the hideous screeching of a she devil giving birth. The mournful wailing of a coyote whose leg is caught in trap. The sound of lunatic eating his own tongue. But we’re feeling charitable today, so let’s just say, “Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Britney Spears.”

  • GMA Celebrates Britney's Crotch-Kicking Return

    If Britney Spears wants to launch her grand return with a trite and tacky rough-sex pantomine, I suppose that's her business. She's not known as a pop tart for nothing. What I do find noteworthy is the way GMA celebrated that bit of rough stuff, featuring it in its opening minutes. Even there, it's not ABC's descent into schlock that jumps out so much as the double standard. Can you imagine the dutifully feminist ABC applauding such junk if the gender tables had been turned? Me neither. Diane Sawyer, uh, teased things during the show opening. View video here.

    Ryanair on Friday claimed Sweden's Trade Ethical Council against Sexism in Advertising (ERK) was out of touch with the "Britney Spears generation" after the agency accused the discount airline of running a sexist ad campaign. In defending the advertisement, Ryanair questioned whether the ERK accurately reflected the views of most Swedes. “We are sure that the anti-funsters at the ERK do not speak for the majority of the famously liberal and easy going Swedes,” the company said in a statement. “The ad simply reflects the way a lot of young girls like to dress. We hope the old farts at...

    Warning: excessive adulation of Barack Obama is harmful to the vision and and in extreme cases can even cause hallucinations. We're all familiar with how an Obamania overdose produced strange tingling sensations in Chris Matthews. A new, virulent strain of the malady has now surfaced, claiming its first victim in the person of Bob Herbert, who on live national TV claimed to see visions of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Washington Monument where none existed.

    While we love the sound of Paris Hilton for president... It doesn't seem likely to happen any time soon. Especially not if Paz's recent political drama is anything to go by. According to People, a campaign from US Republican presidential hopeful John McCain likening rival Barack Obama to Paris and Britney Spears has not gone down well with the heiress. Her rep issued a statement to People, which reads: "Miss Hilton was neither asked, nor did she give permission, for the use of her likeness in the ad, and has no further comment." The ad campaign shows images of Brit,...

    Republican presidential candidate John McCain has released a new ad featuring shots of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton (Watch above). Both stars appear briefly as a narrator describes Democratic opponent Barack Obama as "the biggest celebrity in the world." The narrator then asks, "Is he ready to lead?" The Obama campaign responded in a statement: "On a day when major news organizations across the country are taking Senator McCain to task for a steady stream of false, negative attacks, his campaign has launched yet another. Or, as some might say, 'Oops! He did it again.'" McCain campaign manager Rick Davis...

    Apparently the Britney Spears/Kevin Federline divorce/custody battle is over, at least for a while. In the face of a trial that was scheduled to start in a month, Spears instead agreed to give Federline sole legal and physical custody of their two sons. I have received many letters over the past several months saying that I should take up Britney Spears' cause. After all, I publicly advocate shared parenting, and should do so whether the noncustodial parent is a father, as is usually the case, or is a mother, as in this case. A few people have told me that...

Ashley is the head of, a website she started when she was just 14 — with eight dollars borrowed from her mother. Now, just three years later, the website grosses more than $1 million a year, providing Ashley and her working class family a sense of security they had never really known. It all started with capitalism 101, the law of supply and demand. Ashley became interested in graphic design just as the online social networking craze...

The British-born pap has a home in the desert community, according to public records.

    Dr. Phil's planned sitdown Monday with Britney Spears' parents dissolved into accusations he was exploiting the troubled singer's emotional crackup. The TV shrink insisted he canceled the taping with Jamie and Lynne Spears "because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family." A source close to Dr. Phil McGraw said it was Britney's parents who cut him off, furious he blabbed about her mental state after visiting her in the psych ward at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
