Britney Spears is featured as the model for Candie's spring 2010 ads, with famed photographers Annie Leibovitz, Mark Seliger and Terry Richardson doing the honors.

The campaign's name: "Britney Spears Through the Lens." Deep.

"Annie, Mark and Terry are three of the biggest photographers in the world and I am honored to be working with them for my Candie’s ads," Spears said in a statement.

"It was an amazing shoot, and I know my fans are going to love the cool images." We're sure they are too, as they eat, drink and breathe all things Britney.

Here's the first of many new Candie's ads ...

Britney Spears for Candie's ... only at Kohl's.

The photo shoot, which took place at Paramount studios in Hollywood late last year, had three different themes for each photographer featuring Spears.

Leibovitz's photos feature Spears against an industrial backdrop, while Richardson photographed the superstar on a plain white set with colorful props.

Seliger created elaborate sets, such as a French burlesque-inspired pink dressing room and a field with a custom-designed pink Harley-Davidson bike.

"This is the most exciting shoot we have ever produced for Candie's," Dari Marder, the chief marketing officer of Iconix, said today. We don't doubt it.

Troubled boxing champion Evander Holyfield and his wife Candi are reaching out to the only man they say can solve their domestic woes: TV blowhard Dr. Phil!

Seriously. They feel the way to resolve their marriage issues - she wants him to turn up the heat, he beats her for not putting God first - is through his format.

Candi Holyfield filed, but then agreed to drop a request for a protective order against Evander over that incident. Today, they issued a joint statement saying:

"We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the only one who can help us at this time."

The ONLY one who can help them. They wrote this.

"We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way."

If you're Evander and Candi Holyfield, why resolve your private issues with a real therapist when you can do so on TV with this guy running the show?

Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is steamed, and rightfully so, over some blatantly tasteless Down Syndrome mockery on last weekend's episode of Fox's Family Guy - a low blow clearly inspired by her own mentally challenged child.

But man, does she love any excuse to run her mouth.

On The O'Reilly Factor, Palin reiterated how offended she is at the Family Guy quotes that ridiculed her family (as they do everyone and everything else).

In between about 37 plugs for daughter Bristol's Facebook page, Sarah righteously saddled up on her high horse to promote Sarah Palin defend son Trig.

She also demanded that White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel resign for using the term "retard" but defended Rush Limbaugh for the same thing.

Her defense of Rush is perhaps the most puzzling. Why not say he was wrong to use it too? Is this woman for real?! Check out her interview below:

Whose side are you on?

Fresh off her drawn-out, not-at-all-staged departure from The Bachelor, rumors that Ali Fedotowsky will be the next star of The Bachelorette are already surfacing.

There has been no word from ABC, but it seems like a done deal.

Everything is lining up for this to happen. First, Ali became a fan favorite. Then, she voluntarily left the program, only to beg to come back on that fake phone call.

All a clever ruse to have Ali leave at the peak of her popularity, make fans think she coming back, only to have her "rejected" by Jake and leave us wanting more.

The only question is whether ABC offered her The Bachelorette spot ahead of time and orchestrated her whole "work-related" exit or if that part was actually real.

Either way, Ali Fedotowsky will be The Bachelorette. Bank on it.

Do you think Ali Fedotowsky will make a good Bachelorette?

The PR tour has already begun, albeit subtly. The announcement may even come during this coming week's "Women Tell All" reunion special. Gotta kill that time somehow.

Yesterday, Ali told Ellen DeGeneres that she would be "flattered" if asked to star on The Bachelor sister series. Host-pimp Chris Harrison says "she definitely has a shot."

"I think she would be a fantastic Bachelorette. I like women that have loved and lost, have learned a lesson, and you have Ali, obviously beautiful, a very down-to-earth, career-driven woman who learned a great lesson about love."

Loved and lost? She left, then pretended to want back on the show 40 seconds later! A great lesson about contrived reality TV is more like it, but more power to her!

Is Ali Fedotowsky a good choice as The Bachelorette?

In a new twist, Dr. Conrad Murray’s attorney, Michael Flanagan, says his client made a mistake in his initial interview in the Michael Jackson homicide investigation.

"Dr. Murray's timeline of events the day Michael Jackson died is wrong,” he says. “Doctors make mistake. That is what he did, and it was simply that. A mistake.”

Really, Conrad Murray?

Jackson's personal physician is changing the story he initially told police in the aftermath of MJ's death - a significant move for the prosecution and defense.

According to police reports, Murray told the LAPD that he gave Propofol to Jackson at 10:50 a.m., then left Jackson alone for two minutes to go to the bathroom.

 DOCTOR ON TRIAL: Does Conrad Murray's explanation hold water?

Murray then went on to say that when he returned to Jackson’s room, he wasn’t breathing and he began CPR. However, a 911 call wasn’t made until after noon.

In addition, a voicemail Conrad Murray left at 11:54 a.m. that day to another patient, Bob Russell, was released yesterday. Murray was calm and collected on it.

That seems dubious if Murray had been performing CPR on Jackson for an hour before the call. To that end, Flanagan says Murray was wrong about the timing.

Most weeks, OK! Magazine straight up invents news. It's what they do.

This week, it's trying a different tack, reporting an actual story we already know, but with sensationalistic, misleading headlines enticing you to read it all again!

According to this venerable publication, Jessica Simpson was "stunned" last week as she awoke to texts, e-mails and Tweets regarding that douche John Mayer.

Her ex-flame made the masses cringe when he referred Jessica to “crack cocaine" and “sexual napalm” that he "could not stop f*%king" in a Playboy interview.

Classy guy. But is "Betrayed" the right word, OK!? Is it really a "sex scandal"? Guy nailed a famous, hot girl and bragged about it. We can move on any time.

How could he sink so low, indeed?

“Jessica was shocked” at the report, a pal of the singer tells OK!. “She was really pissed off at first when she heard about it, then she read the whole interview, and the first thing that she said was, ‘I’m annoyed John would sink so low.’”

That's just how a Grade A Douchebag rolls.

Facing a barrage of criticism, for his comments about Jessica (and gay and racial slurs he made), John expressed regret that night at a concert in Nashville.

“I just want to play. I completely forgot about the people that I love and that love me. I’m out. I’m done. I quit the media game,” he told the crowd.

We should be so lucky.

Lawyers for the conservatorship running Britney Spears' life are on the move again, this time fighting to keep details about Britney and her children private.

"Critical information" must be safeguarded, attorneys Geraldine Wyle and Jeryll Cohen say, fearing personal and medical information will leak to the media.

They want the info put under legal lock and key, pronto.

"A Google search for Britney Spears yields 54,300,000 hits," the lawyers note. "Personal information of a confidential nature (such as medical information of Ms. Spears and her two children), can reap thousands if not millions of dollars."

Not to mention pics of a scruffy Jason Trawick.

That is true, without question. But what "sensitive info" specifically are they talking about? What hasn't leaked to this point that could possibly damage Britney Spears anymore? She is the most bulletproof celebrity in terms of fan support.

Just the same, the information is so sensitive the lawyers note on the open market "The possibility of enormous profits presents a substantial risk that Ms. Spears' most confidential medical and personal information will be disclosed."

So the attorneys are looking to have the sensitive info about Britney, Sean Preston and Jayden James contained in court documents sealed, and promptly.

One thing they won't be sealing because it poses no risk (only cuteness)? These Sean Preston and Jayden James pictures. Talk about little sweethearts.

Paris Hilton turns 29 today. While she has never been our favorite celebrity, we have come to respect Paris to a certain degree because she knows what she is:

A rich hotel heiress famous for no reason.

While wannabes like Kim Kardashian mug for the cameras, Tweet constantly and do everything in their power to stay famous, Paris just kinda does her thing.

Since her infamous sex tape in 2003, she has marketed herself ingeniously and even cleaned up her image. The airhead bit may even be (kind of) an act!

Just 1 Night in Paris

Happy birthday, Paris! [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

She's perfectly content racking up millions in appearance fees and product deals and dropping hints about marriage to beau Doug Reinhardt. Not a bad life.

So much for being a "guidette."

Jersey Shore star Jenni Farley, a.k.a. JWoww, admitted on Fox's Strategy Room Tuesday that she and co-star Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, aren't even Italian.

She may be the "Guidette Princess of F*%king Poughkeepsie" (one of our favorite Jersey Shore quotes), but Snooki is predominantly of ... Chilean descent.

So f'ing weak. Now we don't want to see Snooki nude anymore. THG NOTE: We never did, nor can we see what the appeal is there. Sorry, Emilio Masella.

J-Woww says she personally is Spanish and Irish. Spain and Ireland are rolling in their collective graves, while Italians everywhere are rejoicing at this.

Snooki is not really Italian. Nor is she tall.

In truth, the ancestry of these idiots (or anyone) doesn't matter. They're all Americans and we watch because they're lovably trashy. But why promote it so falsely?

The MTV hit show was slammed by Italian-Americans for perpetuating "negative stereotypes," hyping up its "guidos" and "guidettes" in previews and interviews.

"If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?" the president of one group posited.

Basically they bash Italians and aren't even Italians themselves. Classy.

Such a disappointment. We feel so used. At least we know Heidi Montag's plastic surgery is real ... though by definition her boobs, face, etc., are fake. Irony.

Lady Gaga won three awards, rocked a Marie-Antoinette-on-steroids wig and paid tribute to the late Alexander McQueen at the Brit Awards in London on Tuesday.

All in a night's work.

Lady Gaga and Fans

"Thank you to Lee McQueen," she said, using the celebrity fashion icon's real name, prior to a rendition of "Poker Face," "Telephone" and "Dance in the Dark."

"I was really excited to win the first two awards," she added. "They mean even more to me because I worked so hard on this album (The Fame) for so long."

In addition to being named Best Breakthrough Act at the awards gala, Lady Gaga also left the building having been named Best International Female.

Lady Gaga in a look only Lady Gaga can pull off.

She topped Rihanna, Norah Jones, Shakira and Taylor Swift for that. We didn't know Taylor Swift could lose anything, so you know that's impressive.

No doubt Matthew Williams was quite proud of his girlfriend.
