Britney Spears' music video for “Radar” has been released. It’s the fourth single from her latest album, Circus, and needless to say, she looks smokin'.

The video was shot May 27-28 at the Bacara Resort & Spa just north of Santa Barbara, Calif. "Radar" was directed by Dave Meyers, who previously collaborated with Britney Spears on her music videos “Lucky,” “Boys,” and “Outrageous.”

Check out the video below, featuring Britney attending and enjoying what appears to be a polo match, but having thoughts about very different things ...

This video may be taken down by the time you read this, knowing how record labels are about this stuff. If that's the case, we'll sum it up for you here:

  1. Britney is horny.
  2. She's out of control.
  3. She is also a bit lethargic.
  4. It feels like a bad, but hot acid trip.

One became a major music star singing country.

One became the star of a show called The City.

Both look gorgeous in the same black and white dress - but there can be only one winner in our latest celebrity fashion face-off! Who will it be?

Carrie Underwood went for a glam look at a pre-Grammy Awards party in a Pamella Roland dress, while Whitney Port showed off her seemingly endless legs in the same dotted minidress at a fashion event in New York this past week.

Who do you think looked best?

In an exclusive interview with WooMeTV, Stephanie Pratt of The Hills took a break from her busy schedule of being annoying and doing nothing to come clean to fans (which apparently she has) about her experience with the "master cleanse" diet.

We'd sum it up for you, but Stephanie, who recently opened up about battling bulimia on the cover of Us Weekly, is just so painful to listen to that we sort of tuned out 30 or 40 seconds in. Sorry. We can only endure so much punishment.

So check it out if you can tolerate her:

While lawyers for Michael Jackson's family claim no will exists for the late singer, a seven-year-old draft for a final testament surfaced yesterday.

The 2002 Michael Jackson will, believed to be his most current, reportedly left his estate to his mother, Katherine Jackson, along with his three children - Michael Jr., 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7 - and at least one charity.

Whether Arnold Klein allegedly being the biological father of the elder two and Jackson never formally adopting them becomes an issue is uncertain.

Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, wasn't listed as an heir.

Whether Joe's omission was deliberate is unclear, however, Michael has stated Joe was mentally and physically abusive of him during his upbringing.

The document, which surfaced yesterday, names his attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain as executors of the estate. Branca was on retainer for Jackson from 1980-2006 and was rehired shortly before the singer's death.

While Michael Jackson reportedly died with $400-500 million in debt, the value of his vast assets likely outweigh that by $200 million or more.

The 2002 will could be submitted to court as early as Thursday. John Branca has said he will file it within 30 days of the singer's tragic death.

Meanwhile, fans of Michael Jackson - those who choose to live, anyway - will get a chance to take part in laying him to rest when the singer's family organizes a public viewing of his body at Jackson's Neverland ranch near Santa Barbara.

Citing the Santa Barbara's Sherriff Department, E! Online says plans are underway to accommodate large crowds at the estate for a Friday viewing.

"Our guys are meeting as we speak with the California Highway Patrol to discuss the security issues," says Lt. Butch Arnoldi, a department spokesman.

Earlier in the week, Michael Jackson's brothers Jermaine and Tito visited the property and a delivery truck was spotted dropping off boxes, E! reports.

CNN reports a public viewing of the late music icon will held on Friday at Neverland, with a private service for the family to follow on Sunday.

We know celebrity weddings are big sellers for gossip magazines.

Naturally, Kendra Wilkinson wedding photos would be no exception.

That said, Us dropping $120,000 on exclusive rights to pictures of Kendra's wedding to Hank Baskett in L.A. Saturday seemed like a reasonable sum, if not low.

But Michael Jackson's death quashed plans to run them on the cover.

"They were trying to get out of paying so much because they have to put Michael on the cover," a source said. "But the documents were already signed."

Melissa Joan Hart, who was nearly hosed out of a People cover by Farrah Fawcett dying (the nerve of some people with terminal cancer) can sympathize.

A rep for Us said, "The wedding pictures were purchased after Michael died."

In any case, we don't expect the lovebirds care too much. They are on their honeymoon and likely focused strictly on boning. Congrats, Kendra and Hank!

Michael Jackson's death is sad, and it is tragic.

It is not, however, something that should traumatize his fans, nor is this the end of the world. The Rev. Jesse Jackson says this and we have to agree.

Amid reports that distraught fans of Michael are becoming suicidal, the friend of the music icon is urging fans to get it together and "keep hope alive."

"This is a time when hearts are heavy. There is great pain but great cause to celebrate Michael's life," Jesse Jackson says. "It made Michael happy saying 'We Are the World.' Don't self destruct. We fall down sometimes, we get back up."

"That's the right thing to do. In Michael Jackson's name, let's live together as brothers and sisters and not die apart as fools."

MJ'S LEGACY: Michael Jackson is survived by the children he raised (Arnold Klein was the biological father). Jesse Jackson wants us to honor the star, not kill ourselves.

According to the U.K.'s Sky News and Gary Taylor, president and owner of the fansite MJJCommunity, at least 12 ardent fans have committed or attempted suicide in the aftermath of the superstar's death at age 50 on Thursday afternoon.

Pavel Talalayev, a Russian MJ impersonator who underwent plastic surgery to look like his idol, was among the first to attempt to take his own life.

The Barcelona Reporter is reporting an additional fan death in Tunisia.

So watch the video below, suicidal Michael Jackson fans, and remember that while he may be gone from this life, he did not take your CD collection.

Play it. Dance badly to it. There is so much to live for.

Mariah Carey is out for revenge against Eminem.

Dressing up in drag as the rapper while filming the music video for her song "Obsessed" in New York City, the singer took their feud to a new level.

The Mariah Carey tune's lyrics include this line:

"You're so lame. Ooh boy, why you so obsessed with me? Ohh finally found a girl you couldn't impress / Last man on the earth / still couldn't get this."

Ohh, snap. We have to say, her costume designer did one heck of a job.

Here's Mariah and the real Eminem. Who do you think is more hard core?

Mariah Carey channels her inner Eminem. It's a pretty accurate depiction.

This is in response to when Eminem rapped about Mariah Carey - who he has said he briefly dated in 2001 - in his song "Bagpipes From Baghdad."

In that song, Eminem raps, "Mariah whatever happened to us. Why did we ever have to break-up? Nick Cannon, you better back the f**k up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk ... I wish you luck with that ... wh*re!"

Those lyrics prompted Carey's husband Nick Cannon to respond: "What type of grown... man lies about getting with a chick? Only Slim Lamey! LOL!"

Bet Eminem is still stinging inside and lying awake at night replaying that retort. He did admit later that he went too far in that song, at least.

Michael Jackson used to be married to Debbie Rowe, but neither were the biological parents of the singer's first two children, Michael Jr., 12, and Paris, 11.

Their father is Arnold Klein, Jackson's L.A.-based dermatologist and Rowe's former boss, multiple sources confirm to celebrity gossip magazine Us Weekly.

"He is the dad," says an insider of Arnold Klein, who has not commented. "He and Debbie signed an agreement saying they would never reveal the truth."

While Debbie Rowe and Michael Jackson never confessed to their kids' true lineage, she did admit in 2002 that she carried his children as a "personal favor."

Neither has confirmed that the marriage was ever consummated.

"I said, 'Let me do this. You need to be a dad. You have been so good to me,'" Rowe - who met Jackson when she was a nurse's assistant in the 1980s - has said.

News that Michael Jackson is not the biological father of any of his kids surfaced earlier today. Now we've learned he never legally adopted them either.

Neither Jackson nor Debbie Rowe are the biological parents of Michael Jr. and Paris. Nor is Michael the biological parent of Prince Michael Jackson II.

Jackson never filed legal papers to adopt any of his children. Legal experts say Jackson would be presumed the father but it's not conclusive by any means.

As for why Jackson didn't formally adopt them - some speculate at the time they were born, there was no third party he though would try to claim custody.

Jackson apparently never thought Rowe would mount a custody battle, which wasn't totally absurd, as she actually tried to give up all rights to them once.

However, the music icon's death at the age of 50 last Thursday, along with today's developments, has everyone guessing where the children will end up.

Last week on The Bachelorette, Jillian Harris nixed Tanner Pope and Jake Pavelka despite rumors that one of the other guys in the house had a girlfriend.

That guy was Wes Hayden, obviously, and while Wes hasn't admitted to having a girlfriend, he admitted he was on the show for the music not for the girl.

This all came to a head last night in hilariously contrived fashion.

The first four hometown dates - Reid in Philadelphia, Michael in Valencia, Calif., Kiptyn Locke in Encinitas, Calif., and Jesse in Carmel, Calif., seemed rushed, crammed into the first 45 minutes. It eventually became clear why this happened.

Last night’s episode was really about two things alone:

  1. Jake Pavelka returning and confronting Wes Hayden.
  2. The long-predicted return of Ed from Chicago.

Both of these things happened during Jillian Harris' final hometown date, to visit Wes' family in Austin, Texas. Upon her arrival, Wes tells Jillian that she's meeting his family, but she meets his other family - his band - first.

He played his song for her again. It was terrible again. 

Then came the return of Jake. Jillian was worried Jake was coming to get her back, but that's wasn't the case. He was coming to rat Wes Hayden out.

Jake (left) told Jillian that Wes (right) had a girlfriend named Laurel.

Jillian was visibly upset. Jillian asked Wes Hayden point blank if there was anything he needed to tell her and he said, "no." Jillian told him what Jake said. Wes claimed that Laurel was an ex-girlfriend that he's still good friends with.

Jillian brought the guys together to hash it out. Jake said he was going to hold Wes "accountable," but Wes denied it and Jake was left crying in the hallway.

After the drama, Wes and Jillian went on to meet his family for dinner. That went well. But Jillian had one more surprise before the rose ceremony. It was Ed.

He said he needed to "re-prioritize" and asked for another shot. Jillian was tongue-tied but invited him to the rose ceremony to vie for a rose with the others.

Jillian had four roses and now six guys. Cue dramatic music.

Just how contrived and/or staged were these two developments?

According to reliable sources, while Wes Hayden may be a complete douchebag, he is getting at least partially hosed as far as editing goes. His comments about girlfriends and "tasting" fame are taken largely out of context.
