Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.


Gwen Stefani is the coolest chick alive.

Whether she's rocking out as part of a faux '80s band on Gossip Girl, debuting the trendiest fashions, looking far too good to be 39 years old or just hangin' with her husband and young sons, the No Doubt singer is always a breath of fresh air.

Here's Gwen Stefani arriving at L.A.'s LAX airport this morning, in an outfit only she could pull off, with hyper Kingston, 2, and sleepy Zuma, 9 months.

All together now: Awww ...

BABY CRAZY: With two sons in the past three years, will Gwen and Gavin Rossdale aim for a third? It's hard to argue against expanding this level of cuteness.

douchebag (n.): "An individual displaying an over-inflated sense of self worth, possibly compounded by a low level of intelligence, behaving ridiculously in front of colleagues with no sense of how moronic he appears."

This definition, courtesy of the all-knowing online oracle known as the Urban Dictionary, sums up singer-songwriter John Mayer as well as one word can.

Leaving the club MyHouse in Los Angeles with his t-shirt and face covered in lipstick kisses, John joked that he really scored. No word on whether Mayer went into the bathroom, put lipstick on and kissed his own t-shirt repeatedly.

If this scene alone wasn't enough to cement his douchebag status for all eternity, he decided to bust out some Michael Jackson moves on the street.

We've actually seen worse.

The best part of this video is the random drunk girl who attempts to approach and dance with the star as he's gettin' down. John might still be shagging Scheana Marie Jancan after all, because he completely ignored this shameless hack ...



Your summer guilty pleasure reading list just got longer.

Lauren Conrad's highly anticipated debut novel, L.A. Candy, hits stores June 16, and the beautiful star has released a sneak peek to - who else? - her former employer, Teen Vogue. Whoever ghosted it isn't half bad, either!

Lauren Conrad For Avon

The heroine of her story is 19-year-old Jane Roberts, who moves to Hollywood and ends up the star of her own reality show. Sound familiar? Art imitates life for The Hills star, although Lauren Conrad says the book is entirely fictional.

"Some of the characters may symbolize people in my life," the 23-year-old soon-to-be Hills retiree said, "but it is in no way calling anyone out."

Just like Lauren Conrad in real life, Jane deals with drama in relationships with guys, one of whom is named Paolo. Wonder who he symbolizes.

Below is an excerpted portion of L.A. Candy, the first installment of a three-book, young-adult fiction deal featuring the protagonist LC created:

Jane spun around. Standing in the doorway was a guy with short, cropped blond hair and blue eyes. He was carrying a big, sleek leather portfolio.

"Hi," Jane said, a little startled.

"Hey, there," the guy said. "I'm looking for Fiona Chen, but I think I got lost. I have an appointment to show her my portfolio."

"Across the hall," Jane said, pointing. "She actually has someone in there ... you may want to wait a minute."

"I'm sorry. The girl at the front told me to come straight back."

"Oh, no worries. She just pulled someone in there for a sec. Some mix-up with peonies. He'll be out in a minute ... a little less of a man."

The guy laughed. "I'm Paolo."

"You a model?" Jane asked, pointing at the portfolio in his hand.

Paolo laughed again. "No, no. I'm a photographer."

Mmm. Probably not the smoothest move ... rumored, married (to other people) lovers LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian "ran into each other" at a bar inside the Staples Center during halftime of the L.A. Lakers-Houston Rockets game yesterday.

Hey, it was already a blowout by then, so what else did they have to do? Somehow, TMZ snapped a pic of them hanging together, which you can see below ...

Eddie Cibrian, LeAnn Rimes Pic

In March, Us Weekly outed LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, who are married to Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville, respectively, as having a secret, torrid affair.

This coincidentally broke right as their Lifetime movie, Northern Lights, was making its debut, leading some skeptics to ponder if it was a PR-motivated sham.

If that's the case, it was a well-orchestrated one, as just two months ago, Cibrian and Rimes were spotted kissing, cuddling and sucking on one another's fingers during a rather steamy date at Mosun and Club M in Laguna Beach, Calif.

Eddie Cibrian issued a statement calling rumors of the affair "lies," while Rimes admitted she was going through a "tough time" with Sheremet, her husband of seven years, but didn't confirm or deny a relationship with Cibrian.

The pair has not been spotted together since... until this weekend!

Note that LeAnn Rimes is wearing her wedding ring in the photo.

Troubled, enigmatic music icon Michael Jackson is suffering from skin cancer after being diagnosed with the disease a few weeks ago, according to the Sun (UK).

The megastar attended Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles to hear the news last month, but is expected to make a full recovery for his London O2 dates in July.

Michael Jackson Jr. Birth Certificate

The disease could be linked to Jacko’s skin-pigmentation disease vitiligo, although the government has warned of a link between skin bleaching and cancer.

Which is, of course, not in any way remotely suggesting that Michael Jackson's albino-like complexion is anything other than naturally occurring. At all.

“Michael’s tests showed spots of skin cancer on his body, and cells which could turn to skin cancer on his face. He was at first very concerned, but says he has been assured by the doctors that they can treat this and he will recover,” says a source.

The plastic surgery hall of fame member has had so much work done in the past, it's hard to imagine this is not at all related. But we hope he's okay.

Michael is currently rehearsing for his string of sell-out dates in the UK and his business manager, Dr. Tomhe says he “couldn’t be in better shape.”

He must mean physically, and even that's a stretch. As for reports that the singer has six months to live, Jackson's handlers had no comment.



“This is not what I wanted when I was a little girl ... I always looked up to people like Princess Diana and now I can never be like that.”   - Paris Hilton

Poor, poor thing. Every day in the life of America's favorite ho-tel heiress is, like, so painstakingly difficult to endure, she doesn't know if she can go on. Or so she would have us believe in a new MTV documentary called Paris, Not France.

Yes, we're serious. This miserable excuse for a network could not find anything better to spend its production budget on? Season Three of From G's to Gents didn't make the cut, guys? Since when are people still riveted by Paris Hilton?

Filmed in black and white, to make sure we understand that the subject matter is, like, so deep, this behind-the-scenes look into the life of Paris is meant to be taken seriously. We think. It's pretty high on the unintentional comedy scale:

In the documentary, Paris whines about how this cruel world sees her as "as Barbie with a perfect life, this fantasy." It's not like she has ever played into this image or attempted to cash in or anything. No wonder her neighbors want her gone.

She also offers this gem of a quote regarding the sex tape she made with Rick Salomon (which put her on the celebrity map back in 2004):

"When I heard about it, I just didn't believe it... I thought, 'it's a look-alike, it's gotta be a joke.' A couple hours later, it was like all over online. I saw it online. With that, that was just like, you know ... this is the most intimate thing you do ... and the whole f*%king world is looking at it and laughing at you."

Yes. Apparently the most intimate thing you can do is be filmed in night-vision mode, engaging in doggy-style intercourse, while taking calls on your cellphone. You learn something every day in the celebrity gossip business.



Taking a page from Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox, singer Fergie is the latest celeb to announce that she likes both men and women. We mean sexually.

“Put it this way, I’ve experimented, definitely, but I have never had a steady girlfriend," the Black Eyed Peas front-woman revealed to the UK's Sun.

"You’re going to like our next video, for 'I Got A Feeling,' because I have a girl-on-girl tease, a little section of the video ... I met the girls right before we did the scene. They were beautiful. They were hot,” Fergie recalled.

Fergie, of course, recently married Josh Duhamel, so one wonders if this is just an "Ooh, look at me, I'm crazy and unconventional" Tila Tequila-esque ploy.

On the flip side, she's actually a talented performer who doesn't need to resort to such self-promotion, and has actually endured a rather troubled past.

How much of this statement is true, we may never know for sure. The more important question, whether you're a guy or a girl: Would you hit it?

With Lauren Conrad retiring from The Hills, Kristin Cavallari is ready to take over - and you can guarantee the former Laguna Beach star will shake things up.

"Basically... they want me to come in and start some drama," the 22-year-old told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show. "I'm good for it, so it's fun."

Kristin's plans for the upcoming season?

"Drinking, fighting, hooking up - all that good stuff!"

As for her rumored romance with Audrina Patridge's ex, Justin-Bobby Brescia, which would likely be the most contrived and disgusting event in Hills history?

"I sat next to him at [Heidi and Spencer Pratt]'s wedding, yes," she teased. The wedding, which airs on The Hills May 31, is the season finale and her debut.

Justin-Bobby or no Justin-Bobby, Kristin Cavallari quips she's "on a man-hunt" after catching the wedding bouquet tossed by the bride at the Speidi nuptials.

"I am single and they want me to date on the show, which I'm excited about," the Laguna Beach nemesis of Lauren Conrad goes on. "They will introduce me to guys, and if goes somewhere, then they'll follow it. If not, it'll be over."

Cavallari says she didn't push Conrad out of the show.

"I had nothing to do with that," she insists. "[Lauren] was leaving, and I thought it was a good time to come in because she's gone."

Cavallari adds that she'll "hopefully" take over for LC as the narrator and that their much-hyped feud is sooo high school. "We're fine now," she says.

As for whether Heidi Montag has changed since she introduced her to Spencer Pratt four years ago, Kristin Cavallari leaves us with this awesome quote:

"I don't really hang out with her as much anymore... but looks-wise, I'd say... Listen, they know what they're doing and they're making a lot of money."

McBaby on board!

Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo worked out at her local gym and gave celebrity baby fans a glimpse of her cute pregnant belly in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The 39-year-old is doing what she can to stay healthy and in shape as she prepares to welcome her first child with her awesome husband, Chris Ivery ...

Ellen Pompeo shows traces of her baby bump in workout clothes.

Grey’s Anatomy's shocking Season Five finale left the show's fans with unanswered questions and has sparked many debates as we look toward next season.

Will Meredith be pregnant too? Will Ellen's baby bump be concealed like the show did with Chyler Leigh's? Will Pompeo take a leave of absence from Grey's?

We'll have to wait and see, but we're happy for Ellen and Chris.

Dumped by Jason Mesnick on The Bachelor, can Jillian Harris find Mr. Right?

“I definitely know that falling in love is very, very possible," said Harris - who finished third on The Bachelor but gets a second chance at love as The Bachelorette, which premieres tonight. "And I'm obviously in a very good mood right now."

What a wonderful, vague, happy-sounding non-answer!

"[My fear going into The Bachelorette was] what if I don’t fall in love? What if I get to the end of it and I don’t feel the way I’m supposed to feel? Is it really possible?" Jillian Harris added. "But I can say that that is not a problem."

I'm definitely feeling the way I wanted to feel in this situation.”

Jillian and Melissa Rycroft came close to landing the single dad's heart, but fell just short. Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, the winner, are going strong.

While Harris, a 29-year-old restaurant designer from Canada, has moved on in her search for love, she says Mesnick encouraged her to do the show.

"Jason was helping me quite a bit to make up my mind to do this," Harris said. "He is somebody that I talked to and he really supported me. I had to sort of cut off my relationship with Jason [to do the show], but it’s temporary."

"I will definitely be friends with him after all of this is over."

How will The Bachelorette differ from last season's The Bachelor?

"I don't need my dad to see any more hot tub scenes!" Harris joked.
