Is there anything better than the Jonas Brothers singing live?

How about a book about the Jonas Brothers singing live? One entitled Burning Up, and cradled gently by America's favorite smoldering trio?

It can now be yours. Contain yourselves. Virginal rock gods Kevin, Nick and Joe Jonas signed copies of their tour book in New York Friday ...

Who's the hottest Jonas Brother?

Slipping into "hotpants" for a German awards show – her first live effort since her infamous 2007 VMAs debacle - Britney Spears performed her hot new single "Womanizer" at the 2008 Bambi Awards in Germany on Thanksgiving Day.

Britney Spears Live in Germany

Looking remarkably like her onetime BFF Madonna (who was spending the holiday with you-know-who), the 26-year-old Brit rocked "Womanizer" in front of a packed house of adoring German fans. She won raves from many onlookers.

With "Womanizer" already dominating the airwaves, Britney's new album Circus is set to drop Tuesday, December 2. Find a hat, and hold the f*%k onto it.

Lynne Spears has plenty to be thankful for.

In the year, she watched her famous daughter, Britney Spears, go bonkers but crawl back from the brink, and her less-famous daughter, Jamie Lynn Spears, scandalously get knocked up at age 16, only to get engaged and welcome a happy baby.

How did 27-year-old Britney rebound from a pair of forced hospitalizations and a string of erratic behavior, such as a quickly annulled Vegas wedding in 2004, an infamous head-shaving in 2007, and myriad bizarre dalliances with men?

"With a lot of love and care and help," Lynne Spears said Thursday evening, speaking to the U.K.'s GMTV via satellite from New Orleans, Louisiana.

"Sometimes you have to settle down. You have to stop, think. There's a lot of people that care about Britney and love Britney – and she's doing great now."

While the singer still hasn't regained custody of her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, Lynne had only praise for her daughter's parenting skills.

"Oh she's a wonderful mother – she's funny, she's extremely affectionate," said the Spears matriarch, who's promoting her memoir, Through the Storm.

"[At] home, where there's nobody around, she's very normal."

Fresh off the success of her first single, "Womanizer," Britney is now in Europe promoting her new album, Circus. She's scheduled to go on tour next year.

"I think Britney's just ready to get started again," said her mom. "I think this is when she's most in her element."

What would this traditional American holiday be without family, food, football and reflection upon the things we appreciate the most in life - in our case, some of the biggest turkeys we've had the privilege of covering this year.

With that said, we present our Top 10 Turkeys of 2008 ...

10. John Mayer. A douchebag 364 days a year. Honorary poultry today.

9. Britney Spears. Last year's top turkey falls to #9 by virtue of calming the hell down from February on. The first month of 2008 alone, though? Wow.

8. Miley Cyrus. Anyone who goes topless for Vanity Fair at age 15 and/or celebrates their birthday four months in advance automatically makes the list.

7. Courtenay Semel. She's far from the first E-list celebrity go to great lengths for publicity. Pretending to be a lesbian sets the bar pretty low, though.

6. Adrienne Bailon. Being dumb enough to take nude pics and let them get stolen is one thing. Staging the entire stunt with your loser publicist? Pathetic.

A collection of some of the year's biggest turkeys.

5. Ashlee Simpson. The zenith of uselessness to begin with, Jessica's l'il sis went and named her kid Bronx Mowgli. Just a "fowl" move all around.

4. (Tie) Sarah Palin, for this heartwarming Thanksgiving video, and her #1 fan Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 'cause no turkey gets ruffles feathers quite like her.

3. Alex Rodriguez. Months without a clutch hit. Railing strippers. Divorcing Cynthia Rodriguez. Referring to Madonna his "f*%king soulmate, dude." Gobble, gobble.

2. Eliot Spitzer. The Governor of New York State apparently thought it was worth his job and marriage to give call girl Ashley Dupre a good "stuffing." Har har.

1. Spencer Pratt. The villain you love to hate from The Hills capped off a hilarious year by eloping with Heidi Montag. Say what you will about him, Spencer plays the celebrity gossip game to perfection, 24/7/365. And we love him for it.

So Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow. Will Shenae Grimes sit this one out, if you know what we mean (we mean she's rumored to be an anorexic bitch)?

The Canadian actress says we shouldn't believe the hype, and she has a message for all the haters - ask her before believing what they read.

Tussled Hair

"Nobody has asked me about it. I really can't help what someone thinks of me because they are reading a paper and choosing to believe it," Grimes opened up to People in an interview, referencing her rumored eating disorder(s).

The 19-year-old Toronto native says the experience of moving to Los Angeles earlier this year parallels that of her 90210 character, Annie Wilson.

"It was huge culture shock," says Grimes, who became celebrity gossip fodder the minute she was cast in the CW remake of the 1990s FOX drama.

Along with her fellow female 90210 costars, Shenae Grimes has been slammed for being too thin, having eating disorders and being a huge bitch in general.

"It's so frustrating," 5-foot-3 Shenae Grimes says, noting that she does not have an eating disorder, but had a close friend struggle with one for years.

"Meet me in person and you can't say anything ... No bones sticking out. Just because people are calling you skinny doesn't mean I'm like, 'Yay!' No! You're telling me I don't look right. This is me. This is my body - I have accepted it."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Those look like ribs to us above. Just saying, Shenae.

As for being a diva and a party girl, she shrugs that off too.

"The hours I work, I can't be. These are stories written about everybody. Of course we're new girls on a hit show so we're plopped into little boxes. And people buy it. It makes me second guess anything I've ever read about anybody."

The Hills’ star Spencer Pratt released a statement to The Associated Press, laughing off suggestions that his secret wedding to Heidi Montag is a sham and insisting that the marriage is 100 percent legitimate. Here's what he says:

“We had a beautiful ceremony here at One & Only Palmilla officiated by a minister and photographed by the hotel photographer. We’ve never been happier."

He added, regarding the legalities: "And, like other elopements that happen outside the country, we will take care of the legal details when we get home.”

Well, that sort of clears it up. Save for the many unanswered questions.


Meanwhile, The Hills executive producer, Liz Gateley, said footage from the "surprise" wedding will be included in the reality show's upcoming fifth season.

“MTV is currently filming Heidi and Spencer in Mexico, as we were expecting to capture them on vacation,” Gateley says.

“Fans will be able to see footage from the ceremony in an upcoming episode, and we will continue to follow the newlyweds’ relationship as it plays out in real life.”

That's all good, as long as we don't have to watch Spencer Pratt recite his cheesy wedding vows. That might cause sudden, involuntary projectile vomiting.

Talk show host Carson Daly, who used to be on MTV but really isn't heard from all that much anymore, is getting ready for a new project: daddy duty.

The Last Call with Carson Daly host, 35, and his girlfriend, Siri Pinter, are expecting their first child, his PR peeps confirmed to The Associated Press.

Congratulations to the presumably happy couple.

Siri Pinter had worked as an assistant on Carson Daly's show at some point. We know nothing about her, but that still ranks her above Tara Reid. Skank.

Here is a picture of Siri Pinter, Carson Daly's baby mama ...

Siri Pinter is carrying Carson Daly's child. That's awesome. She looks pretty cool, although we've only known she existed for 20 minutes, so it's hard to say for sure.
