Justin Timberlake is biting the hands that feed his own celebrity. So to speak.

The former *NSync dweeb and current pop superstar has made no issue of his distaste for paparazzi in the past. See these Timberlake pics in which he goes bonkers at some camera dudes.

JT in the Hizzy

But now he's gone on record saying that he despises the work of celebrity gossip magazines, that they "create soap operas out of people's lives."

Yeah, yeah. We hear it all the time from stars complaining about the attention given to their lives. But Justin Timberlake has usually been one of the most adamant.

He makes the comments in a recent interview with Details. Of course, JT's life has been popular fodder for the Hollywood Gossip sites (such as this one), especially because of his romantic relationships.

He dated Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz, and possibly tapped the voluptuous booty of Scarlett Johansson as well. One gets the impression that any girl he chooses would be happy to receive a very special box next Christmas.

Nevertheless, the "SexyBack" singer dismisses all the coverage of his high-profile romances as "a spin game," saying, "I choose not to take part in it."

It's not going to stop him from chasing tail all over Hollywood, of course. And we applaud him for it. He's definitely our favorite *NSync alum, edging out Joey Fatone and Lance Bass, as well as JC Chasez and that other guy.

In other words, he's better off these days. With Timbaland.

Alanis Morisette is still around.

And covering "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas.

Process that for a moment and then proceed to the video below. Can't say we expected when we woke up this morning to see the annoying Canadian singer, who doesn't know the definition of ironic, doing her best Fergie. But here we are.

Enjoy (and be afraid of) the YouTube video below, which may have even surpassed the great Snoop Dogg's comments regarding Bill O'Reilly as the funniest clip of the day.


What's next? Hootie and the Blowfish covering Usher?

Now that Britney Spears is out of rehab, lots of people are rooting for her.

That includes The Hollywood Gossip staff.

Britney Spears Side View

And her producer, Sean Garrett.

"I'm working with Britney Spears," Garrett told People on Saturday at the Kids' Choice Awards, where Jamie Lynn Spears made an appearance.

"It's really coming together right now. I know that [Britney Spears] will do exceptionally well now that she's out of rehab."

Right, we're sure of this as well, seeing that she's been clean for, oh, almost two full weeks! After a complete mental breakdown and addiction to alcohol and drugs. She's definitely in the clear.

Garrett, who has produced tracks for Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Mary J. Blige, among others, had been working with Spears on five songs for her upcoming album before she checked into rehab at Malibu's Promises center February 20.

The sound on the new disc, he says, "is like 'Toxic' times 10. It's going to be a lot of fun and it's really exciting. We did a lot of great work before her break."

"Break" is a nice way of putting it, dude. You win points for political correctness.

Garrett, who is hopefully a better colleague for Brit than Larry Rudolph, also said he has no doubt Spears will emerge from her recent experience stronger than ever.

"Britney is a superstar," he said of Cue Ball.

"She knows how to handle herself, but it's tough sometimes. The pressure sometimes gets to you, but I think she has done such a great job keeping her composure under the circumstances."

Jayden James and Sean Preston sure hope that continues.

Ryan Seacrest is straight.

Putting aside the sexual props given to everyone's favorite American Idol host by Shana Wall, however, there's only one thing people wanna hear about Seacrest:

Kelly, Aaron

Who does he think will be this year's American Idol champion?

The answer may surprise some followers of the show: Jordin Sparks.

"First of all, she's a girl," Ryan profoundly said of this 17-year old singer. "She represents fantastic qualities. She's a great singer and a pretty girl ... She's non-threatening, cute and attractive. Plus, she has this sincere likeability that is rare and genuine."

It's hard to argue with those points ... although Melinda Doolittle will sure try to over the next few weeks.

Asked what he makes of ever-controversial Sanjaya Malakar, Seacreast said: "Everywhere I go, people have been screaming at me to get rid of Sanjaya. And I say, 'Too bad, you're doing it.' ... But Sanjaya, he's an interesting character on the show. America hones in and gets rid of who needs to go and the best usually stay."

Finally, how about it, Ryan? Do you really hate Simon Cowell or what?

"We're friends," Seacrest said. "We're just extremely competitive on every level â€" to the point that he doesn't want a parking place any farther away than the one I have."

But Ryan insists it's all in good fun. You know, like basically everything Katie Rees ever does.

Longtime couple Fergie and Josh Duhamel have already revealed they keep their romance hot with karaoke and fishing. But that's not all they do together. Now you can add sexy dancing to that list - only he's doing the dancing. Sorry guys.

"He just dances for me in private, in some very interesting outfits," the 32-year-old "London Bridge" singer reveals to Playboy in an interview in its May issue. "He bought me these amazing boots at the Hustler store. They're thigh-high patent leather with a big long zipper. They're hard to get on, but it's worth it."

Ferg a licious

Does Fergie (real name Stacy Ferguson) make Josh Duhamel dance to her music?

"Make him? He wants to. He likes dancing. I slow dance with him, but I have to stand on his feet because I'm too short. Luckily I took ballet, so I know how to stand en pointe."

The couple have been dating since 2004, though they first met in Duhamel's mind.

"I had read in a magazine that he had a naughty dream about me," Fergie says. "All my friends knew about him because he had been a soap-opera star. I'm not into soap operas, but they told me, 'You gotta go out with him. Do it for the group. Take one for the team.'

"Time went by, and I saw on the schedule that we were taping a show called Las Vegas, and I thought, Is this the show he's on? We met, and I said, 'I read you had a dream about me.' He said yeah, and I asked, 'Was it good?' He said it was. So we hit it off."

The Black Eyed Peas singer (along with and our man Taboo) also hit it off with audiences on her first solo effort, last year's The Duchess.

"Next time I might do a reggae or hip-hop album," the former crystal meth addict says. "But for this album I wanted to get really personal with the audience."

Speaking of which, what about that 2005 photo from a San Diego concert in which it looks like she wet her pants onstage?

"Embarrassment," she says. "Everyone told me not to talk about it, but I wanted to call people and tell them what had happened. I was advised not to, and I didn't for a while. Now I'm just honest about it. It's embarrassing, but you just have to let it go at some point."

Sort of like Paris Hilton's pussy. We've all seen it by now, so just let it go, will you guys? Seriously, it's getting kind of old.

Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown welcomed a baby girl early Tuesday.

"The baby is completely healthy with a good head of hair," a rep for Brown said in a statement. "Mother and baby are now resting. No name has been decided on as yet and she is purely known as Baby Brown."

Hey, that's a better name than most celebrity babies end up with.

Scary Spice, 31, was taken to Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., at around 5.30 Monday and the baby was born just after midnight Tuesday.

The new arrival - who weighed in at 5 lb., 4 oz. - joins 8-year-old sister Phoenix Chi, Brown's daughter with ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar.

The paternity of the new baby, however, is in question.

Brown has said that her ex-boyfriend, Eddie Murphy - who shares a birthday with the infant and turned 46 Tuesday - is the father. But he has disputed that claim.

"I don't know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test," Murphy said on a Dutch TV show (possibly the same one just frequented by Snoop Dogg) in December when asked about impending fatherhood.

"You shouldn't jump to conclusions, sir."

Brown later released a statement saying she was "upset and distressed" by Murphy's comments. In March, Murphy's new girlfriend, film producer Tracey Edmonds, told Chicago's Power 92 radio station of Murphy and Brown:

"Without me getting too deep into it, they had a quick relationship before I even got into that, before I got into a relationship with Eddie... So that's like their business that's going on. There'll be a paternity test and if it's his then he'll be responsible."

This paternity test battle comes just as Larry Birkhead and Howard K. Stern are embroiled in a similar fight over the rights to the late Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter Dannielynn. Only they both want to be the dad.

Regardless of what happens with Melanie Brown's situation, The Gossip would like to welcome another beautiful celebrity baby. We're sure former Spice Girl and fellow new mom Emma Bunton shares that sentiment.

Some people and places just go together. Like Heather Mills and the fiery gates of Hell.

Or Katie Rees and Las Vegas.

The former Miss Nevada doesn't seem to be missing her crown very much. Rees has been taking advantage of all Sin City has to offer, such as beautiful pools and orgasm contests.

Pictured here, Katie is hanging out at Bare Pool and Lounge at the Mirage. Oddly enough, however, this is a topless poolside ... but there's nary a nude Katie Rees photo to be found. We hope the crazy, occasionally lesbian party-goer hasn't changed her ways.

Elsewhere, Rees made like Eva Longoria and played a few hands of poker at the JET Nightclub Celebrity Poker Tournament and was also spotted with Vegas high-roller George Maloof, an owner of the Palms.

Katie then ended her night at JET's one-year anniversary party, sipping Grey Goose, just chillin like the fun-loving, laid back single gal that she is. And if Andy Baldwin is reading this now, we think there's little doubt about who he should be focusing his lovelorn eyes on.

Wherever Snoop Dogg goes, controversy and possible arrests (or rumors of arrests later proven false) are sure to follow. Hey, so it goes when you're Snoop Dogg. This is especially true on the Doggfather's recent European tour with Diddy.

Not to worry, Snoop Dogg hasn't been thrown into the pound this time - but when he made an appearance on a Dutch TV recently, an interviewer asked the noted fan of weed and guns to touch upon the subject of Bill O'Reilly.

Snoop Dogg, Dane Cook

That's up there with Suge Knight on the list of Snoop's favorite topics. After all, the bombastic Fox News blowhard once ambushed Snoop's lawyer / backup singer / ho with accusations that Snoop was selling drugs.

Snoop, who is by all accounts a nice dude, was quick to dispense with all diplomacy in sharing his thoughts about Bill O'Reilly, including a request for O'Reilly to... let's say, perform a certain act, if he were so inclined. See below.

Thanks to for the following report ...

Shandi Finnessey and Brian Fortuna (Jive) - Shandi and Brian's Jive was good, but forgettable after all of the performances were finished. Their performance was fun and spirited, and Shandi wisely showed as much skin as possible. She can't compete with the other contestants' technical skills, but she's doing her best to corner the market on hotness. The judges were impressed with her progress and gave the couple a 21 (7, 7, 7).

John Ratzenberger and Edyta Sliwinska
(Tango) - John and Edyta did a convincing job of portraying the intense persona of the tango, and John's acting skills may save him from elimination. We thought that he looked pretty good out there, and he seemed to complete some decent, dramatic moves. It was hilarious when John dragged Edyta to their place in front of the judges' table. The couple's character-driven performance was rewarded with a 20 (7, 6, 7). A fair score, given the level of difficulty.

J.R. Martinez Pic

Clyde Drexler and Elena Grinenko (Jive) - We're starting to believe that it is impossible to keep Clyde Drexler from smiling. The man was grinning throughout his entire segment, even after receiving the lowest score of the night. Clyde and Elena's Jive was entertaining, and Clyde looked more comfortable on his feet this time around. He has a long way to go if he wants to stick around, but he is gradually improving. The couple received a brutal 16 (6, 5, 5) from the judges, which seemed a little harsh. He probably deserved the lowest score, but a 16?

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Tango) - Laila and Maksim had trouble coordinating their busy schedules, so Maksim brought in his brother Valentin to help maximize their practice sessions. Is Chmerkovskiy Russian for gorgeous? Valentin was even cuter than Maksim - why isn't he on the show? Laila was no slouch either. She had a beautiful hairdo, and brought her usual sexiness to the Tango. The couple's Bond-themed dance was excellent, but fell a little short of the heat generated during last week's Mambo. The judges agreed, and gave the couple a score of 21 (7, 7, 7).

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough
(Jive) - Apolo and Julianne's Pulp Fiction homage was an absolute show-stopper. Their performance featured some challenging moves, and plenty of fast footwork. Apolo and Julianne always deliver crowd-pleasing performances. Perhaps it's their youthful energy. We would have placed this Jive among the top dances of the night, but the judges placed the pair in the middle of the pack with a 23 (7, 8, 8).

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (Tango) - Joey was worried about living up to the pressure of being one of the leading dancers, and he brought another fun, lively performance to the dance floor. Kym and Joey did a Star Wars-inspired Tango, complete with Princess Leia slave costume (on Kym, thankfully), lightsabers, and sound effects. The dance seemed more about showmanship than technical difficulty, but no matter. These two are consistently excellent, and are tons of fun to watch. Score: 24 (8, 8, 8), the first of many given out during the evening.

Ian Ziering and Cheryl Burke (Jive) - These two took a lot of criticism for a misstep that we barely noticed. Ian got over his anxiety about hip-swiveling and butt-clenching in time to perform a fast, exciting Jive. The judges held Ian and Cheryl Burke to a very high standard and claimed that Ian's misstep cost him a one-point deduction. The couple still got one of the night's highest scores, however: 24 (8, 8, 8).

Leeza Gibbons and Tony Dovolani (Tango) - Leeza was feeling a lot more confident about her dancing this week, which apparently had nothing to do with her partner. Is it just us, or was Tony a little mean to Leeza during the training sequence? Leeza was looser during her Tango, and brought some much-needed trampiness to her performance. She is still relatively slower and less flexible than her opponents, but the intensity of the Tango was definitely there. If Tony can reinforce his pupil's confidence, she may show even more improvement. Score: a surprising 24 (8, 8, 8).

Heather Mills and Jonathan Roberts (Jive) - Heather may not be a "real" celebrity, but she totally deserves to be in this dance competition. Her Jive had a great sock hop feel to it, and she wore yellow the right way this time. Carrie Ann noted that Heather doesn't have to include such difficult moves, and the fact that she does them anyway makes her a serious competitor. The couple earned a 24 (8, 8, 8).

Billy Ray Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff (Tango) - Billy Ray deserves credit for learning from his previous mistakes. He took someone's advice and pulled his hair back into a sleek ponytail, a look that suited his Tango. The song choice was confusing, however, and Billy Ray was obviously counting during the dance. The couple's performance did feature a few difficult moves, including a finale that had Billy Ray sliding under Karina's legs. Carrie Ann thought the dance "took balls," and Billy Ray kept his "Most Improved" title from last week. We don't think he's a front runner in terms of technical skill, but those hard-voting country fans might keep him around a while. Score: 21 (7, 7, 7).

Tonight, The Bachelor returns for its 10th season (record: 0-9) with "An Officer and a Gentleman." Will Lieutenant Doctor Andy Baldwin live up to all his hype?

We'll have to watch and see... and it's just part of a terrific night of medicore, yet addictive TV. Of course, the new season of The Bachelor starts at an odd time (9:45) following an hour-and-45-minute Dancing with the Stars. We're also going to have to TiVo the season finale of The Hills, at 10 p.m. OMG!

Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer Photo

ABC's preview says "the bachelorettes pull out all the stops" to impress Andy Baldwin tonight, which in various cases includes baking him a cake with tequila, challenging him to a push-up contest, doing backflips in an evening gown (Heather Mills style, minus the peg leg), et cetera.

Of course, the #1 reason to watch tonight is that these girls know that 10 of them are not even going to make it through this episode, and that level of pathetic desperation (combined with booze) makes for incredible drama.

Is Andy looking for a party girl? We doubt it. He grew up in a conservative family, and there's little doubt he's traditional and looking for a life partner, not a wild Dita Von Teese type. In other words, he's a gentleman. And an officer. Follow?

"I don't need to go on national TV to make out," says Andy. "I'm looking for a wife."

Well, that settles that. He means business, this officer. In other words, unlike Lorenzo Borghese, this guy isn't here to screw around. Pun.... intended!

Word has it that Baldwin does find true love, and proposes to one of the lucky ladies on the season finale. But there's a long way to go before we find out who. And before the show even gets started tonight, we've got a full 105 minutes of Dancing With the Stars action.

Look for Joey Fatone and Laila Ali to continue their dominance as the show returns tonight. More importantly, will Shandi Finnessey show off more than just her amazing bod and improve upon last week's mediocre performance? And will America come to its senses and vote off (the Sanjaya Malakar-esque) Mills?

On tonight's finale of Season 2 of The Hills, which stars the lovely Lauren Conrad, it's her BFFs that are at personal crossroads and laying it all on the line. How will they handle their respective career and relationship drama!?

Tonight's the night we find out if Whitney Port gets the Teen Vogue job she covets so. We also get to see if Heidi Montag really does lose her spine and go back to that complete ass bag Spencer Pratt.

Break out the Milwaukee's best and the pork rinds (Britney Spears would be proud) - tonight is a night of TV that is not to be missed.
