Bitching about Britney

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.

Zellweger: the butt of fat obsessed media

Zellweger: the butt of fat obsessed media

Renee Zellweger is sick and tired of all attention she has been receiving since packing on the pounds in preparation for the reprise of her role as everybody’s favourite singleton, Bridget Jones. The festively plump Ms Zellweger doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. She’s done the yo-yo weight thing before, porking up a treat for Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2001, then successfully slimmed back down for last year’s Chicago. This year, she’s plumped up again for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which is due out next year. “The first time I did it, I learned a lot. I realised the influence of living in a society that focuses so much on physicality has affected me,” Zellweger told Vogue magazine for its December issue. “When the film was coming out, the question I was asked the most was regarding my weight. And again it’s happening. I was followed around Heathrow (airport) by a guy who wanted to take a picture of my backside. I don’t understand the obsession.”



Gwynnie’s up the duff?

In recent days, it was revealed that Gwyneth Paltrow is expecting her first child to boyfriend Chris Martin of Coldplay. And news just to hand, New York Daily News has confirmed that Paltrow and Marin tied the knot last Friday in a secret ceremony in California. The wedding, far from all the anticipated three-ringed antics a wedding of such high profile people would usually created, was reportedly a very small, private ceremony in held in a hotel suite. The newlyweds have apparently jetted off to sunny Mexico for their honeymoon, successfully keeping the biggest day of their lives from the prying eyes of the paparazzi!



Twins for Geena Davis?

Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis, 47 is pregnant with twins, her publicist Samantha Mast announced. The actress and her surgeon-husband, Dr. Reza Jarrahy, 33, already have a daughter, Alizeh, who was born last April. Davis is said to be in good health and happily looking forward to the twins’ birth around In April 2004. The actress has spent the last year and a half “concentrating on being a mom,” but is scheduled for a guest appearance on Will & Grace shortly, Mast said. Good news for all those women whose biological clock is ticking so loudly they can?t think straight! Davis didn’t even have her first child till she was 45 and now twins at 47! Go Girl!?
