In music history, few acts have moved more units than Britney Spears.

We're talking about album sales, not that she hasn't moved a fair share of units in other ways, if you know what me mean. Just not 80 million of 'em.

It's hard to believe, given her current status as redeemed train wreck, but Britney has now been around and cranking out hit music for a full decade.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of her debut on the scene, Jive Records is releasing Britney Spears: The Singles Collection on November 24.

To help launch the special package, a brand new Britney single entitled "3," which she just recorded with Max Martin, will debut Tuesday, September 29.

There will be two configurations of The Singles Collection:

  1. The standard version, which will contain 17 of Britney Spears' chart topping favorites along with the new song "3," all on one totally awesome CD.
  2. The ultimate fan box set version, containing all 29 of singer's singles, including the new "3." You also get a book of cool Britney Spears photos.

During her stellar 10 year career, Britney has had five albums debut at the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 Album Chart, as well as 23 (23!) Top 40 hits.

Britney is currently touring in support of her most recent studio album Circus. The Circus tour started in her home state of Louisiana in March 2009.

This is, by definition, a Complex photo shoot. As in Complex magazine. But there is little complex about Eliza Dushku in a bikini and various stages of undress.

What you see is what you get, and what you get is mostly pretty good.

She might want to try to acquire 1-2 more facial expressions, however. Maybe she's already getting into zombie-robot mode for her TV show. Is she alive?!

Eliza can be seen in Season 2 of Dollhouse on Fox, debuting tomorrow evening on the Fox television network. She's pretty good in it and the show looks promising.

More scenes in which she appears like this would not hurt at all.

Some estimates have predicted that the H1N1 virus, commonly referred to as the swine flu, may impact up to one-half of the humans living in the U.S.

That may be far-fetched, but it has already hit Marilyn Manson.

Yes, the former husband of Dita Von Teese and boyfriend of Evan Rachel Wood has gone down with a bout of swine flu, he confirmed in a recent interview.

This has put a temporarily hold on his career as an aging goth shock rocker.

Swine Flu Victim

THE H1N1 STRIKES BACK: Marilyn Manson is the latest victim.

"So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU," said Marilyn, real name Brian Warner, in a hilarious statement, which concludes:

"I know everyone will suggest that f*%king some pig is how this disease was obtained. However, the doctor said, my past choices in women have in no way contributed to me acquiring this mysterious sickness. Unfortunately, I am going to survive.”

With responses like that, we'd say it's quite fortunate.

After un-retouched photos of Aubrey O'Day looking kind of rough in Las Vegas' Peep Show surfaced last night, the ditz announced on her website that she's trying to milk this for attention pulling out of the risque performance this evening.

Despite the fact that she's already provided us more Aubrey O'Day nude photo spreads than we could ever ask for, she apparently was mortified by these.

After lauding her own performance as brilliant, she says every magazine cover is airbrushed, and thinks people are being mean about the PeepShow pics!

Then she posted a two-and-a-half-minute video feeling sorry for herself.

Aubrey O'Day, No Makeup

This is Aubrey O'Day without makeup. Not that anyone cares.

The leaked photos apparently made her feel "insecure" about her body. Photos of Aubrey O'Day topless. In a topless Las Vegas show she signed up to do.

Just so we're clear.

O'Day, who earlier this month made headlines for saying Hitler was brilliant, says she learned a valuable lesson about body image. We know. Nudity sells.

She proceeds to whip off her top to show us all what her body really looks like while assuring us that she will continue to perform in PeepShow after all.

What an idiot.

Here's Aubrey O'Day, who posed in Playboy and even bragged about how her pics are better than Heidi Montag's whining about people ogling her nude:

Jude Law is officially a father for the fourth time.

Samantha Burke is the mother of the child, a daughter named Sophia. No word if Jude even remembers who Samantha is, but she sure is a cutie!

A friend of the family reports that Samantha Burke, 24, an aspiring actress whom Law met while filming Sherlock Holmes, gave birth on Tuesday.

"I doubt Jude was there," says the source close to Burke.

"Besides the financial support, he is not involved."

The source added "Samantha is doing well" after the birth.

Jude Law, 36, who has three other children with ex-wife Sadie Frost, is currently appearing in a Broadway production of Hamlet, now in previews.

Law's rep acknowledged the pregnancy in a statement released in July, following reports surfacing in the media that Samantha Burke was expecting.

It was reported he didn't even remember her.

"Jude Law can confirm that, following a relationship last year, he has been advised that he is to be the father of a child due in the fall," his rep said.

"Mr. Law is no longer in a relationship with the individual concerned but he intends to be a fully supportive part of the child's life," the statement continued. "This is an entirely private matter and no other statements will be made."

Congratulations to Samantha! And to Jude too ... we think!

"I love what I do" - Eddie Cibrian

With the above quote, the 36-year-old heartthrob actor was not referring to LeAnn Rimes, but rather his acting career. Eddie thoroughly enjoys his work.

All the other things that come with a certain element of fame - such as celebrity gossip magazines' and sites' attention - he can take or leave, however.

"I don’t enjoy the other part of fame that comes along with that," he told Extra regarding the downside of fame and increased interest in his love life.

Fast Eddie Cibrian

Eddie Cibrian has become a household name. Well, sort of.

In the midst of salacious media reports revolving around his involvement with Rimes, his married Northern Lights co-star, and the subsequent separation from his wife, Brandi Glanville, it’s no surprise Eddie Cibrian isn’t a fan.

He filed for divorce from Brandi in August. The couple has two sons together.

Eddie adds that he particularly enjoys work on the CBS drama CSI: Miami because it films in Southern California, and he can stay close to his family.

Not to mention his new girlfriend, but that's neither here nor there.

Howard K. Stern, the former companion and wannabe baby daddy of Anna Nicole Smith, was arraigned today on 11 felony charges related to her drug use.

The charges include allegations that Stern, the late model's principal enabler, helped the Playboy model score opiate prescriptions using aliases, a major crime.

He is also accused of helping administer them.

Dr. Khristine Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor, both of whom treated and allegedly prescribed drugs to Smith, were each arraigned on six felonies as well.

All three defendants have pleaded not guilty.

Howard K. Stern is in hot water over Anna Nicole Smith's death.

Howard's attorney, Steve Sadow, charges against his client "BS" at a press conference afterward, and claims that Anna Nicole Smith was "not an addict."

He says the medications given to Anna were prescribed for pain relief, and there therefore, she wasn't an addict. Not sure that adds up, Steve, but hey.

Anna Nicole's health was Howard's "main concern," his lawyer said.

Tuesday, a Los Angeles Times report described the death as a pharmacutical suicide. Like the Michael Jackson case, time will tell if a jury finds that the defendants below played criminal roles in Smith's death, however it's classified ...

John Travolta calmly described in Bahamian court today how he helped a nanny perform CPR on his 16-year-old son Jett, whose death in January was not only tragic, but sparked an alleged $25 million extortion plot against the actor.

"Jeff [Kathrein], the other nanny, was doing compressions. I was doing the breathing," said the actor, whose son was in the bedroom of the family condo.

Paramedic Tarino Lightbourne, one of the first people to arrive when Jett Travolta died after suffering a seizure, and his lawyer, former Bahamian Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater, stand accused of conspiring to extort $25 million from Travolta.

In return for the money, the two allegedly would refrain from making public a document relating to Jett's treatment. The defendants pleaded not guilty.

The actor stood before the court during testimony, standard practice in the British legal system. At times he leaned foward on a podium when he spoke.

John Travolta testified that his son had a history of seizures and for the first time publicly said that his teenage son suffered from autism: "My son was autistic and suffered from seizure disorder every 5-10 days," Travolta said.

John Travolta was forced to recall the worst day of his life under oath.

Police say that Jett was placed in an ambulance, while Lightbourn said John Travolta wanted his son taken directly to the airport instead of to a hospital.

A police investigator then testified that Travolta signed a form that released the paramedics from liability for not transporting the patient to a hospital.

At some point that morning, a decision was made to take Jett to the hospital.

Nonetheless, prosecutors allege that Lightbourn and Bridgewater threatened to release private information unless Travolta paid them $25 million.

In testimony, the two-time Oscar nominee recalled that Jett "would suffer a seizure that would last 45 seconds to a minute and sleep for 12 hours."

On the morning of his son's death, January 2, John Travolta said he was awakened and ran downstairs to find people already trying to save his son.

John arrived hand-in-hand with his wife Kelly Preston in the courtroom Wednesday, soft-spoken and calm during his testimony. Both were described as "graceful" by a courtroom observer, who added that the couple did not tear up.

Grey's Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo and her husband Chris Ivery welcomed their first child, a girl, the weekend before last, according to reports.

"Her name is Stella Luna Pompeo Ivery," her rep said.

Kendra and Son

Stella was born September 15 in Los Angeles.

Ellen Pompeo, 39, and Chris Ivery, 41, a music producer, tied the knot at a small ceremony in 2007 and announced they were expecting this April.

"It's a huge lifestyle change, and I take that very seriously," she said of motherhood. "Chris and I enjoy life so much. We go to Europe and sleep in."

"So, when I have the baby, I won't feel like we've missed having any fun, reckless times together, like staying up all night drinking champagne and having sex until five in the morning and not having to get up until two in the afternoon."

A little TMI there, but point well taken and agreed with.

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery are now parents!

Grey's Anatomy co-star Jessica Capshaw thinks she'll do fine: "She is so on top of it, and she is so excited, and she is very sweet about it," Capshaw said.

"She is exactly the way that she should be about it, which is really excited and hopeful but at the same time really pragmatic and planning, doing research."

Congratulations to Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, who was recently accused of cheating on his pregnant wife with a teenage Bostonian named Rachel Artz.

Just when you think OK! Magazine can't lower the bar any further, the fabled celebrity gossip supermarket tabloid establishes a new standard of hilarity.

According to this fine publication, Jennifer Aniston is pregnant! What great news!

Suri With Katie

Too bad there's not a single fact that would remotely suggest this, nor is she even in a relationship. Besides, everyone knows she's going to die alone.

According to OK!, Jen has never hidden that her biological clock is ticking since she turned 40 in February. Understandable, as that's pretty near death.

“I feel [motherhood is] in my future and I’m on the verge of it in some way,” the Love Happens star said in recent months. “I want to have children."

Jen's "baby dream" is coming true. What that is? No one knows.

Becoming a parent has quickly become a high priority for the actress, who has scheduled several months off before starting her next project in 2010.

At least according to a celebrity gossip magazine that cites made-up sources who have surely never even spoken to her. They're made up, after all.

“Jen’s made no secret of the fact she wants to get pregnant,” says one such source. “Now, with nothing on her schedule for a while, she can finally relax and address priorities that matter most. Motherhood is at the top of her list."

“She wants to have a baby soon,” adds another Aniston insider.

Someone should probably tell her that. If she's not too busy picking out what to wear to the wedding of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, that is.
