LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Britney Steps Out For Autism: Britney Spears lent her star power to Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey’s fundraiser for Generation Rescue, which benefits autism research Saturday night, People reports. “She looked great and seemed really happy,” a party guest told the mag. “She smiled and clapped during the video about autism. She was very into the information and watched a little bit of the dancers from ‘Dancing With the Stars’, sneaking out during one of the performances.” It appears Brit draws the line at celebs-turned-ballroom dancers when it comes to her charity time.
Chace Wants Peace For His Birthday: Chace Crawford celebrated his 23rd birthday last weekend in the Hamptons, but the actor kept the party casual, Us Weekly reports. “I had all my friends up from Texas and California. I flew them all in and then had a big barbecue!” he told the mag. And what does the “Gossip” guy want for a present? “I’m asking for this Mercedes over here, but they [event organizers] won’t give it to me,” he told the mag at the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge on Saturday. “I couldn’t talk them into it; they were having none of it. That’s what I want … other than world peace.”
Jessica Simpson Booed At First County Concert: Jessica Simpson may have gone country, but it appears country fans are not exactly happy about it. The singer was met with boos as she took the stage on Saturday at the Country Thunder USA festival in Randall, Wisconsin, opening for Sara Evans, Us Weekly reports. One fan told a local paper, “I’ll have to drink a lot of beer to sit through her concert.” No word if beer sales were through the roof at the concert.
Chuck Norris Will Kick Butt On Your Cell Phone: Action legend Chuck Norris is hoping to make your cell phone feel the “Pain.” Next month, the actor will launch a new game for cell phones entitled, “Chuck Norris’ Bring on the Pain,” E! Online reports. In the game, Chuck will take down dictators Kim Jong-Il, Fidel Castro. Players can even upload a picture and take on Chuck head to head. Please, refrain from Chuck brawls while driving.
