"It's kind of like ... Britney was sent out into the world a little bit prematurely." - Lynne Spears, promoting her memoir Through the Storm.

While not officially admitting what a leech she is, Britney Spears' mother did admit, on Today, to some of the mistakes she's made along the way.

Everytime

When Britney began her career, Lynne said she was a single mother who also had to raise little Jamie Lynn, so she couldn't always be there.

"Did I want to be there? Of course!" she said. "Was it feasible? It wasn't."

Lynne, who also has a 31-year-old son, Bryan Spears, compared her situation to when parents first send their children off to college:

"You don't really know what they're doing in college ... just as Britney set out two years earlier to be a star. She's out there, with the crowds and with her peer groups, and she's doing things - she's a celebrity, for heaven's sake!"

Lynne said she felt she lost control the moment she practically saw Britney Spears naked with a Teletubby on a 1999 cover of Rolling Stone.

She said she wouldn't have agreed to let Britney Spears strip nude, but "we didn't really know what we were doing. We were so in awe. I had never even bought [Rolling Stone], but I just heard this is a really big deal."

"We were kind of in shock at what was going on. It was a two-day shoot. Thank god [manager] Larry Rudolph came in and said, 'Stop, that's enough.'"

So did Lynne Spears get sucked into fame?

A new website is claiming to have the first "leaked single," entitled “Candy From Strangers” from Britney Spears' sixth studio album, Circus.

It's a little weird, since we've only known about Circus for a week, and the song hasn't been taken down yet, which always raises questions.

Britney Spears: S&M Style

In any case, “Candy From Strangers” reportedly features Laze & Royal, and sounds a lot like stuff on Britney Spears previous album, Blackout.

A lot of people liked that and this song - whether it's Britney's or not, or really her future single - certainly is catchy. Check it out ...

Pros: Reasonably catchy beat; The fact that Britney Spears is still making music at all. Cons: Borderline offensive lyrics; Complete lack of a gyrating, topless Britney Spears.

Apparently, they're not engaged right now. But they were. We think.

Besides pimp and ho, it's very difficult to keep track of the defined roles of Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who celebrated her 22nd birthday Monday.

Just the same, Heidi Montag gushed about her man to Ryan Seacrest.

"I got some amazing gifts and a cake that said, 'Happy Birthday, Princess Heidi!'" she said Tuesday on the American Idol host's KIIS-FM radio show.

Although Spencer Pratt didn't surprise her with another cheap, knockoff ring like he used on The Hills, he said an engagement "is definitely imminent."

As for the forthcoming rock, Spencer (who was previously engaged to Heidi before they split, only to get back together) said, "she's dreaming big."

Pratt also added - gag us - that they've talked about starting a family.

Sorry, we're not even going to poll you on this one. We don't love Lauren Conrad any less, but as celebrity fashion choices go? Down with the one-sleeve top!

Showing off one of her own creations – the "Jaqueline" one-shoulder top – the aspiring designer debuts her Fall 2009 collection at Bloomingdale's in N.Y. City.

Minka Kelly Emmys Dress

Oh well. Nobody's perfect, and Lauren Conrad is still pretty:

Somewhere, a solitary, lonely sleeve is looking for a home.

The headline of this post, along with the ridiculous picture below, pretty much tell you everything you need to know, but we'll elaborate a little.

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse posted this photo – in which a nude Blake Fielder-Civil exposes himself – on her Facebook profile recently.

But Amy, who just celebrated her 25th birthday, will have to wait a little longer to see the real thing as Blake has chosen to remain in prison.

That's right. Rather than accept early release, he'll be staying in the can.

Blake Fielder-Civil Nude

Yes, that's Blake Fielder-Civil nude. Don't ask us about the eye patch.

In his defense, living with one's parents does suck. In order to be granted an early release, Blake Fielder-Civil would have to be under house arrest in the residence of his mother, Georgette, and wear an electronic monitor at all times.

A source told the UK's The Sun: "It was all set for him to be released, but Blake refused to go to anywhere other than Camden. He doesn’t want to go somewhere where he can’t be reunited with Amy and his friends. He’d rather stay inside."

At least he can send her naked photos in the meantime.

A few points before we recap last night's episode of The Hills ...

  • Heidi Montag celebrated her 22nd birthday yesterday - 22 going on 62.
  • Spencer Pratt is becoming more of a Spencer Pratt caricature each week.
  • Justin Bobby is a d!ck. He is a f*%king d!ckhead. We realize this is The Hills, and not something we should actually care so much about, but if Audrina Patridge keeps this worthless d-bag around, she obviously has no self-respect.

Anyway. The broken friendship of Lauren Conrad and Heidi Montag once again took center stage as Heidi's sister, Holly Montag, says she misses LC!

Spencer Pratt? Not thrilled by this comment.

He hilariously forbid Holly from seeing Lauren as long as she was staying with them, while Heidi just sat there quietly. This guy is seriously amazing.

Seems his threats are a tad idle, though. Stephanie Pratt has stayed pals with Lauren thus far, and now Holly Montag seems intent on doing the same.

Disobeying the great Spencer - gasp! - Holly texted LC to set up lunch. OMFG!

Even if you took out the two human beings he killed, O.J. Simpson's rap sheet would be really frickin' long. Seriously, the dude is not un-insane.

With this general sentiment in mind, a Las Vegas prosecutor kicked off OJ's trial yesterday by urging the jury to lock him up for... well, anything.

The Juice - who recently got his ass kicked by his own daughter, Arnelle, along with girlfriend Christie Prody - is on trial for kidnapping and robbery.

But in his opening statement, Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Owens not-so-subtly turned this into a referendum on Simpson overall, with multiple allusions to the 1994 double murder he somehow got away with:

"Ladies and gentlemen, you are the jurors in this case, and the final story is going to be told by you. You will be able to write that final chapter, the chapter of arrogance and hypocrisy, and that will be the true verdict. A verdict you can feel good about."

O.J. Simpson looks remarkably non-homocidal as his latest trial commences.

Just kidding. This is total bull$h!t ... but funny.

With the recovering pop wreck's upcoming album, entitled Circus, due out on her 27th birthday, December 2, someone went and created their idea of the perfect CD cover. Yeah. We have to say, it would be pretty appropriate. Peep it:

Let Me Hear You!

Whatever team of producers are creating Circus and slapping Britney Spears' name on it probably didn't choose the title as a tribute to the pants-less wonder's messed-up life. But if that were the idea, this album cover would be the best!

From left to right, that's Lynne Spears, Alli Sims, K-Fed, Britney, Jamie Lynn Spears and Adnan Ghalib. With Jayden James and Sean Preston in the corner, obviously.

Our only complaint is that Reg Jones and Sam Lutfi didn't make it.
