Britney Spears – Emmy Winner?: In news we never thought possible, Britney Spears has been included on the official ballot for possible nominees for an Emmy Award, OK! Magazine reports. The pop star’s name was included on the list for her guest appearances on CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother.” The list, which includes 40 others actresses, will endure one round voting by Academy members before the final list is announced. Will we be hearing; “Thank you very much y’all!” from the Emmy Awards stage come September?

Bringing Single Back?: When Justin Timberlake’s best friend and business partner, Trace Ayala, was asked about the possibility of the pop star getting married to girlfriend Jessica Biel, he was hopeful the couple would someday walk down the aisle, but didn’t see it happening anytime soon. “I hope so. To be honest, I don’t see them in the future, but I hope so. I really do,” Trace told Us Weekly Wednesday at “The Love Guru” premiere. Supportive and negative at the same time – a true wingman!

She Knows What Girls & Boys Like: MTV’s resident bisexual reality star, Tila Tequila, thinks she played a role in the legalization of gay marriage in California. “It is because of me — I definitely think [my show] has helped the movement,” she proclaimed to Us Weekly Wednesday, again, at “The Love Guru” premiere. “Before it came out, everyone was still a little apprehensive about [same sex relationships]. Then they realized, ‘Wow, everyone is really into this stuff, and it is fine.’ The next thing you know, [gay marriage] is legal.” Who says reality TV can’t change the world!

Brother Don’t Preach!: When Madonna’s brother, Christopher Ciccone, announced his plans yesterday to write a tell-all memoir, not everyone was pre-ordering their copy on Amazon. Madonna was too busy with lawyers, according to E!‘s Marc Malkin. “When she was meeting with lawyers and everyone was saying it was because she wanted to divorce Guy, she was really meeting with them to get the book killed,” a source told Malkin. If the book sells half as well as tickets for Madge’s new “Sticky & Sweet” tour, brother boy might be on to something.
