Bitching about Britney

Thumbs down for Britney
Simon Cowell from American Idol has his claws out again. Better known for his stinging attacks on superstar hopefuls, Cowell has hit out at real celebrities. His latest blow is aimed at Toxic singer Britney Spears. He has told TeenHollywood “I shouldn’t say what I’m about to say…but the shot of her in her underwear onstage, I would’ve gone to the gym a bit more before I did that. Sorry, but true.” Ouch! The 22-year-old singer has been plagued with negative feedback from a wide range of critics on the European leg of her Onyx Hotel tour. She has picked up one positive thing from her trip though ? she has recently become an English Tea addict. The Mirror newspaper claims she came to love tea while staying at a hotel in Kensington. It has apparently replaced her regular sugar filled energy drinks. Bet former sponsors Pepsi aren?t too happy to hear that.

But Christina comes up tops!
Christina?s the favoured one
One person Cowell isn?t rubbishing, is Christina Aguilera. He has said in TeenHollywood that she has a “Great voice, great attitude. I just think this girl is a star. I really like her. Where (Britney’s) different from Christina is that she is someone who’s so reliant on great pop records produced and written for her, whereas Christina is a bit more kind of old school – just an unbelievable singer.” Meanwhile, Christina is busily fighting back at claims that she cancelled her American tour because she couldn?t fill concert venues. As reported in SheSaid two weeks ago, Christina Aguilera had cancelled her 3 month tour of North American due to strained vocal chords. The pop princess is still maintaining it?s her health that is the problem. ?They are saying I could not sell out the venues but they were all sold out. I’m suffering from a bad throat.” She has been spotted rehearsing with her crew, so fans such as Cowell can hope the tour might be resurrected.

Not so happy…
On the rocks?
Maybe things aren?t so perfect in the Brad Pitt / Jennifer Aniston household after all? Brad was recently heard on the set of Ocean?s Twelve having a bit of a domestic. His mobile phone rang and his assistant told him Jennifer was on the other end. Pitt was seen pacing up and down the set, saying, “Yes… yes… I understand… yes…!” He was so pre-occupied with his conversation that he ignored the assistant director who approached three times to tell him they were ready to shoot the next scene. Brad tried to respond to the verbal tirade but he was interrupted sharply by Jennifer. The last words he spoke before ending the conversation were, “Can you please calm down!?” Maybe it has something to do with the rumours of an affair between Angelina Jolie and Brad? Angelina was asked at Cannes last week whether she had slept with the spunky Troy star and she emphatically denied it. Friends did say that she was deliberately staying away from the sitcom star, hoping to avoid any confrontation.

Mother of twins Geena Davis
What’s with the weird names?
Geena Davis is the proud mother to not one, but two baby boys. The 47-year-old star of Thelma and Louise gave birth to Kian William and Kaiis Steven on May 6 at a Los Angeles hospital. Both mother and babies are doing well, despite the health fears due to Geena?s age. Geena and husbund Reza Jarrahy, 33, are already parents to 2-year-old daughter, Alizeh Keshvar.
And… Helen Hunt is the proud mum to a baby daughter. MaKena lei Gordon Carnahan is the first child to Hunt and her partner, director Matthew Carnahan. MaKena lei was born on May 13 in Beverly Hills, and is ?doing very well?, according to Hunt?s publicist.
