Resurgent singer Britney Spears did a surprise interview with radio station Z100 in New York City on Monday afternoon. Here are some excerpts:

On “Womanizer,” her new song: "'Womanizer' is a really cool song. I like the fact that it’s so empowering for girls because it’s basically saying, ya know, we know what you’re up to. It’s about guys cheating on other girls and stuff like that. And it’s kinda like a girl anthem, so that’s why I like it."

On touring to promote her new album, Circus: "We’re dying for a tour. Oh, definitely next year. Definitely."

On returning to New York City: "I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it’s kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it’s like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still. But I love it. It’s the energy. It’s crazy."

On Adnan Ghalib: [There was actually no mention of her ex-boyfriend or his supposed Britney Spears sex tape. We were just playin' with you.]

We've talked about the Britney Spears sex tape gossip courtesy of Adnan Ghalib. Now for some news related to the pop superstar that's actually real.

Tonight's gripping all-new episode of The Hills will include a special musical highlight... the TV premiere of Britney Spears' HOT new single, “Womanizer.”

It's a great marketing move by the peeps at MTV, who are hell-bent on resurrecting Britney's career - but it could also be appropriate for the show itself.

The song title may be referring to any of the dudes pictured below ...

Who could the "Womanizer" in question be?

Terrific celebrity news of the day: Travis Barker has been released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Georgia.

The rocker had been recovering for nine days after suffering second and third degree burns following a plane crash that took the lives of four people.

His friend DJ AM, the only other passenger to survive, was released from the burn unit on Friday. Both were badly hurt but are expected to recover fully.

BACK IN BUSINESS: While it may take a year for him to fully heal, we expect Travis Barker to be rocking out (and maybe seeing Shanna Moakler nude) in no time.

Troubled singer Mindy McCready will voluntarily surrender to authorities on Tuesday to serve 60 days in a Tennessee jail for a probation violation.

McCready said in a statement Monday morning:

"I have been working very hard to put all this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to doing what I like to do most: sing, write songs, and entertain."

"I would like to thank my fans for their unwavering support as I continue to work on my recovery and to regain custody of my precious son, Zander."

Considering that she tried to kill herself in the last story we posted on her, it's good to hear she is at least taking a step towards getting it together.

  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Take Three!
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Reloaded!

Mindy's never in the news for anything good. The country star, 32, was arrested for violating probation for prescription drug fraud in June.

McCready entered rehab July 16 for undisclosed reasons and was previously jailed in 2007 after violating probation on a 2004 drug arrest.

She also made headlines after it was disclosed that steroid fiend and lying, cheating, egomaniacal baseball star Roger Clemens had an affair with her - when McCready was very underage. That was one we certainly didn't see coming.

Celebrity news photographer Adnan Ghalib, the ex-boyfriend of Ms. Britney Spears, says he has a sex tape featuring himself and the pop princess.

And the British-born paparazzo, whom Britney was dating during her epic breakdown last winter, says he WILL sell the sex video for the right price.

Return of Brit!

Adnan Ghalib told Heat magazine (which apparently exists):

"There is such a tape, but I won’t discuss prices for hypothetical enquiries. Unless there is a locked-in deal, I will go no further.”

Adnan Ghalib is reportedly trying to sell his XXX-rated Britney Spears sex tape. A sex tape which he totally doesn't even own, but we'd likely consider watching if he did.

A source tells the UK's The Sun that the two-hour XXX-rated footage features Britney Spears naked, wearing just a pink wig, and was shot in Mexico.

Adnan and Britney snuck off to Mexico together in January, not long before she went bonkers and was hospitalized involuntarily for bipolar disorder.

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively continues to amaze.

The 21-year-old actress looks pretty sensational in a one-piece swimsuit in this photo shoot that recently popped up. We know that "one-piece" and "sensational" create an oxymoron, but take a look. Something about it** just does it for us:

Blake Lively Fashion Pic

** - It's the fact that she's drop dead gorgeous.

If you haven't seen Blake on her TV show, Gossip Girl, you really should check it out. Not only does it feature this beautiful young actress - sometimes in even more revealing clothing! - but the show can actually be pretty entertaining.

Most readers seem to think Audrina Patridge is hot.

Her swimwear choice here, though? A more difficult call.

Scarlett Johansson, Nude Dress

The Hills star did show some skin at the Wet Republic pool at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday, but her suit looks a little whack to us.

Why go with a one-piece? And what is the deal with holes in the sides? A question we can't answer - much like why the hell she dates Justin-Bobby.

Tell us what you think of Audrina Patridge's swimsuit in the poll below ...

Is Audrina Patridge's swimsuit a fashion it or miss?

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse faces arrest after allegedly whacking a woman dancer in the face. The dancer had asked to take the star’s picture.

Amy ran off, crying out: "Life can’t go on. I can’t do this any more."

A-Dizzy-Dizzubs

Police were called to the $700-a-ticket End Of Summer Ball in central London, where Amy Winehouse performed, and took a statement from Sherene Flash, the dancer who got laid out by the insane spouse of Blake Fielder-Civil.

Cops are expected to quiz the Back To Black singer again later.

A witness said: "Sherene asked Amy Winehouse if she could take a photo. Amy was OK at first, but when Sherene asked if a friend could get in the shot, Amy lashed out."

Well, obviously.

"She was distressed. There was a lot of grabbing and flashbulbs. She was startled."

Amy is also alleged to have struck the official photographer for Thursday night’s event. The death-defying songstress has got some issues, wouldn't you say?
