Free Britney

Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.


We love Zac Efron, but the High School Musical star wasn't the only hottie at last night's awards gala. Wearing a design straight from her very own fashion line, Lauren Conrad arrived at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards last night in style. Check it out ...

California Gal

As usual, Lauren (seen with roomie and friend Audrina Patridge) looks every bit the beautiful part we've come to love on Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and The Hills.



Paris Hilton sucks.

Yeah, at this point, there's very little to say about the Hollywood harlot / ho-tel heiress that hasn't been repeated at length. But we just had to comment on this photo of Paris wearing an old school newsman / paperboy cap.

After all, if Paris Hilton were our paperboy, nothing would give us more pleasure than watching our staff Rottweiler chase her down Hollywood Blvd. as she shrieks in abject terror.

But alas, Paris has never had a job. Neither has Heidi Montag, who has also been seen donning said headwear of late. We're used to The Hills temptress sporting ugly accessories, such as designer bags or Spencer Pratt, but she looks particularly bad in this pic.

You tell us: who's your favorite paperboy: Heidi Montag or Paris Hilton?

The amazing Britney Spears had a brief exchange with a California Highway Patrol officer after she was pulled over Friday night on the freeway.

Britney Spears' New Body!

"Ma'am, we're the Fashion Police. Please remove the hat."

Authorities say Britney Spears was stopped for driving erratically. The pop star's excuse? She is pregnant and was rushing to the hospital. Just kidding! Brit actually said she was attempting to avoid the relentless pursuit of celebrity news reporters!

They must have bought it, or just felt sorry for her after hearing her god-awful new song, because officers called Britney "cooperative" and let the train wreck go.

The terrible trio - Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan - are no doubt jealous of her preferential treatment.



Rambling rocker Pete Doherty baby-shambled his junkie ass back to rehab Thursday after a drama-filled week that involved a violent run-in with a poor celebrity news photographer and yet another drug-related bust.

The babyshambles frontman checked in to Cloud's House rehab center in England after allegedly chasing and assaulting photographer Cath Mead.

Cath Mead claims her hair was pulled and camera smashed in the attack. Man, life in the celebrity news business is getting more dangerous by the day.

Cloud's House has served such illustrious clients as Robbie Williams and Boy George.

Surprisingly, Lindsay Lohan has never visited there.

Doherty, who hasn't seen Kate Moss nude since they broke up, was arrested (again) on suspicion of drug possession. He was released on the condition that he live with a friend in Somerset.

This guy has the best lawyers on earth. How else can you remain free after all these run-ins with the man? Maybe Austin Nichols could place a call to that law firm?



Looks like Nick Bollea no longer has a monopoly on random D-list celebs being involved in automobile incidents in late August. Sorry, Nick!

No, random actor Austin Nichols was arrested for a DUI early Friday morning in Jackson, Michigan. The 27-year-old John from Cincinnati star was driving Nicole Richie style - going the wrong way down a one-way street - when the police pulled him over at 2:40 a.m.

An officer took Austin Nichols into custody, where he registered a 0.10 percent blood-alcohol content, .02 above the legal limit in Michigan.

Nichols, a pal of Jake Gyllenhaal, was released from the Jackson County Jail at 8:40 a.m. He will appear in court at a later date, where he will face up to 93 days in jail.

Austin Nichols has been living at nearby Clark Lake for the summer. HBO recently announced that his show, John from Cincinnati, would not return for a second season.

We didn't know there was a first season, come to think of it. Maybe they can get him a guest spot on Entourage after he finishes serving his time?



Heidi Montag isn't just going to fuel the fire between herself and LC, her former roommate and co-star on The Hills, in every conceivable way. Oh no.

She's also gonna make money off it!

Spencer and Heidi, Playboy Cover

Montag announced, via her official MySpace page, that official "Team Heidi" shirts will go on sale next week. No word on if they printed more than 20.

Hey, if you just can't hide your love for Heidi Montag and are like, OMG, totally desperate to get a t-shirt NOW, you can even enter a contest and WIN one!

Wow, you are so welcome for bringing you this opportunity. Imagine being the first person in your neighborhood to possess one of these priceless pieces of clothing!

Who supports Team Heidi at all, let alone is willing to shell out $15 to show their affection? You don't see Lauren Conrad putting out shirts, do you? Yeah. Enough said.

You can't blame a girl for being enterprising, though. Those industrial size tubs of hair gel Spencer Pratt uses aren't gonna pay for themselves.



TMZ and KPNX television in Phoenix are reporting that officers from the Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff's Department raided the home of rapper DMX early yesterday morning.

There, officials reportedly made a disturbing discovery - no fewer than 12 distressed pit bulls.

Distressed as they might be, those dozen pit bulls should consider themselves lucky... they could have met their demise in Michael Vick's Bad Newz Kennelz. Thin about it.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was not home at the time. The Phoenix news channel is reporting that a large cache of weapons was found in the home as well.

Wow, guns at the home of DMX. That's about as surprising as learning that Britney Spears has a new "nanny" that she may be having an affair with.

DMX has a long rap sheet (heh), having been arrested back in 1999 for (seriously) stabbing and shooting his mother. He was later cleared of those charges.

In 2002, he pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges. Last summer, he was arrested and given some candy ass fines for driving without a license. Paris Hilton would be proud.



We couldn't help but notice that this weekly pop culture power rankings in Sports Illustrated contain some familiar faces and stories to readers of The Hollywood Gossip. Let's take a look at what's in the news and who's winning SI's notoriety contest ...

10. Joey Fatone
The "Fat One" signs on to run the red carpet show for the TV Guide Network. We never thought we'd say this, but, we miss Joan Rivers.

9. Chuck Liddell
The former UFC champ partied all night with Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon of Entourage) in Las Vegas last weekend while Dillon celebrated his birthday.

8. Duane Chapman
Dog The Bounty Hunter may have a hit TV show and best selling book but he still can't escape the law. There's gotta be a Michael Vick joke here somewhere.

7. Hayden Panettiere
The hottest cheerleader this side of Friday Night Lights turns 18 which means bring on the cigarettes and pornos (her words, not ours).

6. Bill Murray
There's nothing funny about drinking and driving, but when it entails Bill Murray throwing back a few in a golf cart, it has the makings of a Caddyshack reunion.

5. Tom Brady
So, Brady wants some time off to see the birth of his child (with Bridget Moynahan, his ex). We'd pay to see the look on Bill Belichick's face when he's asked about that one.

4. Tiki Barber / Eli Manning
Tiki finally lit a fire under Eli and made him break out of his clichéd monologue after questioning the QB's leadership skills. Why didn't he do that last year?

3. Ryan Seacrest
Just when you thought Super Bowl pre-game shows couldn't get any worse, Fox announced that the American Idol metrosexual will be hosting the snoozefest in February.

2. The Orange Bowl
One of college football's most storied stadiums is living on borrowed time after the Hurricanes start playing home games at Dolphin Stadium in 2008.

1. Michael Vick
Can we stop talking about whether or not Michael Vick will be able to resume his NFL career when he's done serving his time in jail? Any team that signs Vick when he gets out might as well go out and get Kevin Federline to play wide receiver.

When you're a celebrity gossip mainstay, you can't just be a somewhat cute young lady and mediocre actress. We know not everyone is expected to be as smokin' hot as Hayden Panettiere or as much of a wreck as Britney Spears, but at least give it a shot!

We're talking to you, Kate Bosworth.

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth Photo

The blonde was seen out last night with her boyfriend, James Rousseau, looking happy and well fed. Her outfit is cute and they seem to be having a nice time. Ho hum.

Seriously, if you told us six months ago that they ate at a place called Il Sole (they did), we would have suggested that Kate got ill afterwards and didn't tell a soul.

But alas, nowadays Kate Bosworth is looking as if she enjoys the occasional beef injection (we're talking about eating steak) and there's very little to say. Oh well.

We're not sure they can quite measure up to Zanessa in terms of celebrity couple cuteness, but Kate Bosworth and James Rousseau more than hold their own.

In years to come, Suri Cruise's first trip to Paris will be remembered as a blend of rainy weather shopping, snacks, her frumpy mom's ruined heels and a well-planned nap.

Or, more likely, it won't be remembered at all, since Suri Cruise is one

But no matter. Taking a day trip from Berlin, where dad Tom Cruise is making Valkyrie, mom brought 16-month-old Suri to Paris for a quick visit Thursday.

Celebrity Mom and Daughter

Katie Holmes and her drowsy daughter started out early, spending nearly an hour at Dior's main shop on Avenue Montaigne while heavy rains lashed the city.

Afterwards, Suri Cruise showed considerable enthusiasm in tearing into a croissant across the street (who wouldn't) at the restaurant L'Avenue.

From there, it was on to the Louvre, where Suri Cruise seemed more interested in chasing pigeons in the courtyard than anything inside. Then she got tired.

"Suri was napping when Katie got to the Mona Lisa," said an eyewitness.

Follow this link if you actually want to continue reading of this boring ass People article on Suri and Katie. You've already gotten the gist. They went to Paris. Katie Holmes shops. Suri is really, really cute. She's a baby with beautiful parents - what do you expect? We're done.
