LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your daily dispatch of celebrity shenanigans.
Brit Brings (Her) Body Back: As you’ve seen from recent photos, Britney Spears is on her way to getting her super-toned body back and she revealed to OK! Magazine how she is doing it. “I try to do just 1,200 calories a day. It may sound like it’s not much, but it’s actually a lot of food if you eat the right things,” she said. Among the things the pop tart is chowing down on? “No sugar. I don’t eat fruit or even fruit juice because of the sugar.” Is that because Jayden James and Sean Preston are drinking it all?
Madonna’s “Crack Baby” B’day: Madonna recently celebrated her 50th with “Crack Baby,” according to the New York Post. Nope, that has nothing to do with adoption or the ironic name of a new music producer she’s found to work with, but a “signature” drink from London’s Volstead club. Madonna and her close pals reportedly drank the bubbly cocktail made with vodka and champagne at the party, probably while David Blaine performed card tricks. Card tricks for Madonna? Really? We suppose that’s slightly more interesting than his other “magic” moments, like sitting in a box above London river the Thames for a month.
Paparazzi Proof Place?: How about this sales pitch for a new LA condo? It’s “Paparazzi Proof!” The 24-story tower complex is now going up on Wilshire, with move-in scheduled for May of ‘09, Access has confirmed. To keep prying eyes and cameras at a distance the building offers private elevators opening directly into the units and high hedges around the pool and the yoga lawn. Even the crescent shape of the building is supposed to minimize the range of views from other buildings. Also, the place will have “Israeli trained” security guards.
Jamie Lynn’s Liberty-Less Mississippi?: Nobody ever said a paparazzo’s life was great; up all night, chasing Britney/Lindsay/Paris/whoever. But how about this for an assignment? Stake out Liberty, Mississippi, population 663. The town’s Chief of Police told Access that there are ten of them hanging around town. That’s one paparazzo for every 66.3 people. Why Liberty? Because star sibling Jamie Lynn Spears and boyfriend Casey Aldridge are living there with their new baby, Maddie Brianne. All the snappers want the money shot of Jamie Lynn hauling her young-un down to the feed store or the Wal-mart, or wherever there is to go in Liberty. By the way, the Police Department only has two officers and the Chief is one of them.
