She's goin' country... Look at them boots

She's goin' country... Back to her roots!

She's gone country... A new kind of suit

She's gone country... here she comes!

Yeah, gone country... a new kind of walk

She's gone country... a new kind of talk

She's gone country... look at them boots

She's gone country, yeah, back to her roots!

-- Alan Jackson

Britney Spears Cowboy Boots

The country singer would be rolling in his grave if he could see this site right now, but we couldn't resist the tribute after seeing this picture of our favorite country girl and train wreck, Britney Spears. Apparently the Louisiana native showed off her down-home charm Thursday when meeting peeps for lunch at West Hollywood restaurant Chin Chin. Bet that was awesome!

The place to be after Sunday night's Emmy Award ceremony? Lindsay Lohan's bedroom. Oh wait. That's the place to be every night. Oh, yes, we went there. Sunday night, though, another place to be is the Entertainment Tonight's 10th Annual Emmys Party.

Stars including Sandra Oh, Calista Flockhart and Denis Leary will head from L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium to the restaurant Asia de Cuba and Skybar at the Mondrian on the Sunset Strip. The theme of the bash? Purple, in honor of the night's special performer, Prince.

Lucky guests (or are they?) can snack on awesome things we have never tried and can't even pronounce -- like ceviche, mojitio-marinated veggie spring rolls, seared ahi, sliders and other specialties from Asia de Cuba chef Daniel Roberts, whoever that is. They can also enjoy two types of ET-tinis: white sangria or purple vanilla cosmos.

We don't know what the hell those drinks taste or look like, but all we have to say is that if there's booze there, the organizers better put a bouncer at the door, because Mel Gibson may try to crash that $h!t. We've got 10:1 odds on him making a grand entrance driving his car through the wall and launching into a drunken tirade.

Angelina Jolie still isn't ready to make amends with her father, actor Jon Voight.

Looking Stiff

The beautiful actress actually remained in the car (TMZ.com even provided us with a picture!) with hubby, Brad Pitt, because Voight was attending the same party as Jolie was headed to.

The birthday bash was for Scott Caan, Pitt's co-star in Ocean's 11 and Ocean's 12. After a half-hour of playing games such as License Plates and Geography in the car, Pitt joined the festivities by himself. Soon after, Voight exited and Angelina was able to boogie the night away.

This father/daughter feud escalated in 2002 when the actor went on TV and said Jolie had "mental problems." For whatever reason, Angelina didn't take very kindly to that remark.

Sort of makes the problems you've had with your pops a bit less trouble, eh, Beyonce?

The Emmy Awards air this Sunday night. But forget whether or not Grey's Anatomy can win Best Drama (it can and should!), we know most people can't wait for Monday morning.

How come? Because that's when they can dissect celebrity fashion from the show, picking apart every dress and tuxedo worn like high school seniors doling out yearbook superlatives.

But why wait? Let's look at three women from the past couple years that would certainly be in the running for Best Dressed ...

Granted, Halle Berry could wear a garbage bag and be responsible for drool on the chin of every male attending the ceremony. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't recognize true beauty when we see it:

At this point, we don't care if Jennifer Aniston is engaged or not. We just want her to keep looking this gorgeous every time she walks down a red carpet:

Sarah Michelle Gellar slayed many vampires during her television days, but she never took home an Emmy. Oh well. At least she wore this dress:

Every couple weeks, ESPN online columnist, Bill Simmons, responds to reader emails. As the Hollywood - and not the Sports - Gossip, such back and forths are typically not reported on here.

However, when one exchange involves the future of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, it's our duty to present it to our fans:

Q: After watching the train wreck of a performance from K-Fed at the Teen Choice Awards, I started to think ... is Britney Spears the Mike Tyson of the pop world? Think about it, she got on top of her game at a really young age, blew by the competition and seemed to have peaked at around 21.

Then, she breaks up with Justin Timberlake (which could be Cus D'Amato dying). Then finds K-Fed (who is a mix of Don King, the rape charge, and Buster Douglas all in one). So what's next for my former dream girl?

Simmons: I just enjoyed that you described K-Fed as "a mix of Don King, the rape charge, and Buster Douglas all in one." Sums him up perfectly. But in the spirit of your analogy, I think WrestleMania is next for her. It's the logical next step.

After she pumps out the next kid, K-Fed leaves her for her sister, her next album bombs and she files for bankruptcy for the first time, I could totally see her becoming Triple H's manager for a few weeks and hitting John Cena over the head with her purse at WrestleMania XXVI. Just feels right.

Tom Cruise clearly displeased Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone enough to get his ass axed this week, but he evidently also committed one of the biggest cardinal sins for any employee -- pissing off the boss' wife!

According to TMZ.com, Paula Fortunato was incensed over one of Cruise's many rants, telling her honcho husband that the actor is a "putz," and that she intended on boycotting Cruise's projects.

  • Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Are Tomkat

Indeed, the New York Post notes, one of Redstone's justifications for severing ties with the Scientology obsessed star was that his behavior had alienated female fans. One of those fans, evidently, was Fortunato, a former teacher almost 40 years Redstone's junior who married the mogul in 2003.

She was outraged by Cruise's inexplicable digs at Brooke Shields, and told her husband that she would never "see another Tom Cruise movie again!"

Cruise has received some support, however, from what might seem an unlikely source -- Matt Lauer. Despite his personal association with of Tom's famous rants, the Today host came to Cruise's defense this week, saying his views aren't justification for his dismissal.

"You know what, I have to say something. You talk about erratic behavior and things like that affecting the box-office and yes maybe he jumped on a couch, and I was in the middle of one of those episodes here on the Today show and maybe he speaks out about Scientology and some people don't like that," Lauer said. "But what about the stars who are in and out of rehab every week? Is that any worse? And yet you find movie companies still in business with them. So, this is all a strange world we live in."

If Lindsay Lohan truly wants to inspire people, William H. Macy has some advice for her: stop showing up late to the set, you skanky harlot!

Okay, we may have added the last part. But the beloved character actor still had choice words for anyone that isn't punctual during filming.

"It's very very disrespectful ... "There is not an apology big enough in the world to have to make 150 scramble."

Oh, don't worry, William, Lohan didn't really try to apologize for her actions on the set of Georgia Rule.

Macy - who worked with Lohan on the upcoming film "Bobby," and said that she was "pretty late" getting to the set - did acknowledge that she isn't alone in this disrespectful act. He stated that anyone arriving late "should have their asses kicked."

As we all know, Lohan is used to other things being done to her ass.

Finally, Macy expressed consternation and fear about Lohan and other young cohorts who get rich and famous in their teens:

"I worry about these young kids â€" 15, 18, 20 years old â€" who in the span of one year become millionaires and powerhouses. It's too much power for a kid that age to handle."

In response, Britney Spears - pregnant, holding her poorly dressed son and sitting through her husband's inane excuse for a rap performance - said she can handle all the money and power just fine, thank you!

If you're Beyonce, which would you prefer:

  • Over 6,600 fans banding together and demanding a reshooting of the video for your song, "Deja Vu?"
  • Or your estranged father coming to your very strange defense?

Don't worry, fans, if you're a recently engaged diva, you can have both!

For weeks now, people with no life enthusiasts have come together to sign a petition "for the advocacy of having Ms. Beyoncé Knowles, Columbia Records, Music World Entertainment, and all other entities associated with the creative process of creating the long-form music video known as 'Deja Vu' reshoot aforementioned video immediately."

But now Matthew Knowles has something to say to these critics. Uh-oh. He issued the following, confounding, emphatic statement:

"It is apparent that there is a consistent plan by some to create chaos around Beyoncé's "B'Day" album release on September 5 in the U.S ..."

Okay, so far, so good enough. Let's see if it gets any nuttier:

"First, it was a petition against the single, "Deja Vu," then a rumor regarding conflict between Beyoncé and Rihanna, seizures caused by the "Ring the Alarm" video, putting out a single to compete with LeToya's album and now to add to all the ridiculous rumors, is my plan to postpone the release of her "B'Day" album.

What will be next? Beyoncé's cut off all her hair? Dyed it green? Maybe she's singing the songs in reverse with some hidden subliminal message!"

Right. Maybe. But here's what we really wanna see: an overly protective, psychotic battle of the spotlight-craving fathers between Mr. Knowles and Joe Simpson, father of Ashlee Simpson and Jessica Simpson.

Let's ring THAT alarm and see what happens!

The Gossip isn't here to judge. If you wish to refrain from eating for weeks on end, star in your own version of Sex and the City, or sweat alongside a cycling champion, that's your business.

At least the following celebrities seem to understand their places in society. They're role models, whether they wish to be or not. Grow inspired by their hopeful messages ...

Just look at Kate Bosworth (can you see her?). The star of Superman Returns hasn't returned for seconds at a buffet in years. But she wants everyone to know that it's okay to be really, really thin.

Then, there's Lindsay Lohan. Ms. Firecrotch wants to make it known it's her duty to roll over for every guy she meets. Or sees from across the room. Or looks up in the Yellow Pages.

Of course, Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong don't have this problem. They don't need to search for love or affection. They've found both, with one another.

The singer/dancer/producer has five Grammys to his name. He's also sold over 15 millions copies of the album, "Confessions." Nevertheless, Usher sees his Broadway debut in Chicago as a whole different beast; or relationship, as the case may be.

"Broadway is like a monogamous relationship," the R&B star, told People. "Doing anything else, like acting in Hollywood � which is great � it's like a one-night stand. You do it and then you keep moving."

At that, Lindsay Lohan nodded her head in agreeance.

The role of Billy Flynn, which Usher now shines in, was originally created in the 1975 production by Jerry Orbach � long before the late actor became a household name on TV's Law & Order � and then played by Richard Gere in the 2002 Oscar-winning best picture.

Opening night this week brought out stars such as Penelope Cruz, Gabrielle Union, Clive Davis, and Rosie Perez. And, of course, the most proud fan in attendence: Usher's mom, Jonetta Patton.

"I thought his performance was unbelievable. Absolutely incredible. I am so so, so happy," she said.
