LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenaningans by Jesse Spero
Simon Gives Britney Feedback: The always outspoken Simon Cowell is dishing out advice to the often controversy-ridden Britney Spears. The "Idol" judge allegedly told Britian's The Sun of the pop star, "Stay with your mum, don’t go out with your stupid friends, just live normally." No word on what Paula and Randy had to say about Brit.
Cousin Alli & Britney Still Tight: Despite rumors that Britney Spears and her cousin and former assistant, Alli Sims, have had a falling out, Alli told US Magazine, "As far as having a falling out with anyone, that is simply not true. I love Britney, and care way more about her well-being than any of these strangers making these claims." Cousin Alli also said her reality show, which is supposed to feature Britney, is still on.
The 'People' Have Spoke: The People's Choice Awards took place last night-- or should we say the taped show aired. Due to the writer's strike, a newsmagazine version of the awards show, hosted by Queen Latifah, aired last night. Newsmagzine style meaning, no stars were in attendance and the accecpatnce speeches were pre-taped. Johnny Depp and Reese Witherspoon were picked as favorite male and female movie star, respectively, and Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani took home the awards for favorite male and female singer, reports the Associated Press.
Divas Stick Together: Mariah Carey is speaking out about the rumor that she said she would rather appear on stage with a pig than appear on stage with Jennifer Lopez. Mariah tells People, the harsh statement is "a complete untruth. This is just some Internet gossip and it's pathetic that people actually entertain the thought that this could be real. This is another sad example of two strong women being pit against each other."
Be Keira For Less!: If you were eyeing the green dress that Keira Knightley wears while getting to know James McAvoy a little better in the library during "Atonement," then look no further. Faviana has recreated the dress, and it can be yours! Young dreamy British actor not included.
