Keira Knightley's dramatic anti-domestic violence PSA, which debuted earlier this month, was apparently a little too hard-hitting for the British censors.

British advertising watchdog Clearcast has demanded cuts - pun not intended - be made to Cut, the ad Knightley starred in for the U.K. charity Women's Aid.

The ad group claims that final scenes, in which the star comes home and her boyfriend absolutely goes Chris Brown on her, is too shocking for TV audiences.

Women's Aid has already come forward to defend the ad, in which Keira is slapped, pushed to the ground and repeatedly kicked, and to denounce the ruling.

Here's the graphic ad - viewer discretion is advised:

"We were very careful to reflect what we had heard from anecdotal evidence," charity spokeswoman Lucy Brown said, adding that the charity has been successful in both raising public awareness and getting a strong, positive response to the spot.

The ad, directed by Joe Wright, who also directed a nude Keira Knightley in Atonement, is still available online, where it has been viewed more than 1 million times.

But without the edits, Clearcast won't allow it on British TV.

What do you think? Too much, or important to get the point across?

Soon, you will be able to know what only Doug Reinhardt and a few hundred other unlucky guys have ever known - what Paris Hilton smells like up close.

The HO-tel heiress is slotted to receive a prestigious perfume award next month - before rolling out her ninth (you read that right) signature fragrance.

Yup, nine different ways to smell just like her. From Heir to Up Against the Wall Fairy Dust, and Just Me to Doggy Style Can Can, Paris' many fans have a veritable fragrance counter of womens' - and mens' - scents at their fingertips.

Her newest is called Siren. Sounds hottt.

You too can smell like Paris Hilton. STD test not included.

All kidding aside, peeps are definitely buying what she's selling. Hilton's fragrance empire rakes in a staggering $200 million in worldwide annual sales.

That was more than enough to get her a five-year deal with posh perfume retailer Parlux. So get ready to smell her a lot more between now and 2014.

Whether Doug will be her husband - as she has predicted - by then or if she will have taken up with a whole host of other dudes by then is unclear.

Former New Jersey Nets star Jayson Williams is currently under psychological evaluation after acting "suicidal" and "violent" in a New York hotel room this morning.

According to the New York Post, cops were forced to remove Williams from his Manhattan hotel room at around 4 a.m. today after he allegedly went ballistic.

He barricaded himself inside - trashing the room in the process.

Cops were forced to use "an electrical device" to subdue Jayson Williams - a.k.a. a taser - and then shipped him off to the St. Vincent's Hospital for evaluation.

Sources say the original 911 call was made by a female friend of Williams at 4:28 a.m., who indicated that prescription drugs and/or alcohol were a factor.

Cops found empty bottles of prescription drugs in the room.

Williams was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter after the 2002 accidental shooting death of his limo driver, 55-year-old Costas "Gus" Christofi.

He also currently faces a retrial for reckless manslaughter, and has a looming May 12 hearing in his divorce case filed by his estranged wife, Tanya.

Those of us who have been lucky enough to see the Britney Spears Circus tour in person can't forget the sublimely sexy "Sweet Dreams" video that plays on the giant screens during the "Freakshow" section of the ringleader's performance.

Here's a video shot at one of Britney's concerts, featuring the singer in various stages of ... well, see for yourself ... as Marilyn Manson's hit "Sweet Dreams" echoes through the arena. All part of this family-friendly tour, ladies and gents:

Britney Spears channels her inner Marilyn Manson. We are slightly afraid.

We just hope K-Fed is playing with Sean Preston and Jayden James elsewhere rather than sitting front row during this. As if they aren't scarred for life as it is.

She sure can put on a show, though, as she says. For more images from Britney's recent concert in Oakland, click to enlarge the awesome pictures below ...

As she said herself in her hilarious personal ad for Funny or Die, Lindsay Lohan is a fun-loving redhead with a little bit of sass. In other words, she's insane.

LiLo has also gotten pretty skinny in the last couple of years, to put it mildly. Maybe some guys (and Samantha Ronson) are into the whole skeletal thing.

She's a cute girl, but with the mental instability, substance abuse problems, extreme weight loss and possible ankle monitor presence ... would you go there?

Tell us in the survey below ...

Would you hit it?

She may have treated him like a “burnt piece of bacon” (his oddly chosen words), but Katy Perry has won back the affections of ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy.

The Gym Class Heroes rapper confirmed that the sort-of strange couple is giving it another go, after their two-year relationship ended in January.

Perez Hilton and Katy Perry

“The break-up sucked. But we’re back together now," McCoy said.

"I keep thinking about if I had to go through it again, and how sh!tty that would be. We were just moving way too fast. I was being juvenile about the entire thing."

"Now it’s easy breezy. I’m happy and really in love.”

Touching. Might we soon see a double date between McCoy, Perry, her new BFF Rihanna and Chris Brown? We can only hope that no one gets assaulted.

John Mayer's new piece, cocktail waitress Scheana Marie Jancan (who goes by the stage name of just Scheana Marie), sort of didn't totally deny dating the lame singer when contacted by People magazine over the weekend.

"We're friends," Marie said. "He's a great guy. He's funny and sweet."

Best Brothers

Sources say Scheana Marie Jancan, 23, and John Mayer, 31, met at the Beverly Hills cigar club Grand Havana Room, where she works as a bartender and waitress.

Although the pair have not gone public, "they've spent time together over the past few months," a source says. "They're enjoying getting to know each other."

Once an aspiring Hooters girl, Scheana Marie is now an aspiring actress – who you can see as Maria, the pizza delivery girl of the Jonas Brothers' dreams on their upcoming Disney TV show JONAS, which debuts on the Disney Channel on May 2!

Yowza. If anything could make the Jonas Brothers toss those purity rings out the window, it'd be Marie. The plot of JONAS better include cold showers.

Also a model, she's appeared in ads for Pioneer, Doritos, Nissan and Toyota. She holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Azusa Pacific University.

As for her douchebag boyfriend, he's been holed up in his studio in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley working on an album, tentatively titled Battle Studies.

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag made their long, strange courtship official this weekend, getting hitched at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Pasadena.

The Heidi Montag-Spencer Pratt wedding took place in front of family and friends, including co-stars Audrina Patridge, Brody Jenner and Justin-Bobby.

Heidi 2.0

A reception followed at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Never ones to keep their lives private, the event will be featured on the season finale of The Hills.

We can only hope the MTV crews kept the tape rolling in the honeymoon suite. A Spencer-Heidi wedding night sex tape would be simply perfect.

In any event, click to enlarge some pictures - of the smiling, happy couple inside and outside the California church, and of Heidi tossing the bouquet (caught by none other than Kristin Cavallari!) - from the epic wedding day below:

In an incident that surely wasted more taxpayer money, Nadya Suleman reportedly rushed one of her octuplets to a hospital after he wouldn’t stop crying.

Radar Online reports that around 2:30 p.m. PST, Octomom was concerned after Makai continued to cry and she noticed a bump on the side of his abdomen.

Octomom Steppin' Out Cover

She worried that he had a hernia, so Nadya took the baby to Bellflower medical center where he was born. Doctors examined Makai and said he was fine.

How did Octomom handle the crisis?

“I stayed calm,” Nadya Suleman said.

When you sponge off of society and aren't even responsible for earning your own living, we imagine it's fairly easy to maintain grace under pressure.

Every day is an adventure for the mother of 14.

In other Nadya Suleman news, while there's already going to be an Octomom TV show starring the waste of space herself, a local theater is reportedly going to be putting on - how we wish we were kidding - an Octomom musical!

Currently casting, the OctoMusical is looking for someone who is "funny" and "whimsical" and can cram 14 babies into her womb command authority.

The musical is set to open at a small theater in L.A. in June. We can't wait until the climactic scene when taxpayers revolt and burn her at the stake.

Casey Aldridge - father of Jamie Lynn Spears' 10-month-old daughter Maddie, and the star's fiancee - was injured in a car accident Sunday morning in Louisiana.

Aldridge lost control of his F-150 truck and it went off the shoulder of a road. He is currently in stable condition at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Mississippi. Jamie Lynn Spears rushed to the hospital to be at his side.

According to Louisiana State Troopers, three of the five individuals riding in Aldridge's truck were ejected from the vehicle, and Casey himself was one of them.

Cops say that while Casey was heading north on the 606 in Louisiana Sunday morning, he swerved off the right side of the road and into a ditch, then over-corrected his turn back onto the pavement, causing the car to flip.

During the flip, three people - including Casey - were ejected.

Fortunately for Maddie and Jamie, it looks like Casey is okay.

The two others who were ejected refused medical treatment at the scene, while Casey Aldridge was taken to the Riverside Medical Center in Ferriday, La.

He was treated there for "moderate injuries."

As for whether alcohol was a factor, cops didn't speak to Casey Aldridge for nearly four hours after the crash - due to his injuries and hospitalization - and when they did, they found no reason to suspect he had been drinking.

Casey nevertheless was charged with careless operation of a motor vehicle - a misdemeanor - and is currently recovering from his injuries.

We're just glad, for the sake of the Spears family and Casey's family, that everyone is okay. Hopefully he will learn from this experience.
