Not that this is news to us. She always has. But in her glory days, Britney Spears at least used to mask her lack of talent with catchy dance-pop beats and half naked Music videos. It did the job. Multiple times a day for some guys, undoubtedly.

Anyway, this latest "song" released by Britney and obtained by Perez Hilton is nothing short of horrific. The ballad features Spears shrieking away in a nasal, tone-deaf manner that makes you long for the tranquil sounds of fingernails on a chalkboard.

And don't even get us started on some of the lyrics:

Spears in Pink

Everyday, I'm in a daze ... Looking for that someone... everyday, I sit and kneel and pray ... sweet love, can I get some ... Why do you desert me, baby boy ... I need your love right now!

She's calling for you, Matt Encinias.

Or you, Daimon Shippen. Or you, Jason Filyaw. Or J.R. Rotem. Or John Sundahl. Or Howie Day. Or Criss Angel. Or Isaac Cohen. Or Shannon Funk. Or ...

Despite reports that Britney Spears had fled the country or was about to, The Hollywood Gossip has confirmed the "star" is still stateside.

For now.

Trashy Britney Spears

On Wednesday, the press in Belgium was reporting that Britney Spears had already been spotted in the Belgian city of Antwerp.

Meanwhile, other celebrity gossip publications in the U.S. reported that the "singer" planned to flee to France or Great Britain.

However, Spears was spotted leaving her house at 5 p.m. Wednesday in her black Mercedes with sons Sean Preston, 23 months, and Jayden James, 11 months, in the back seat.

No doubt fearing for their lives.

Wearing her trademark sunglasses, Spears left her mansion and drove to nearby Calabasas, Calif., where she went down a street that turned out to be a dead end. Britney then turned around, hopped back on California's 101 Freeway and arrived back home at 6:30 p.m... having never gotten out of the car.

Of course she did. Just another day in the life of Britney Spears.

New York Knicks guard Stephon Marbury has spoken out in defense of Michael Vick, saying dogfighting is a sport and comparing it to hunting.

Never mind the fact that this is coming from a thug who has made a "sport" out of sucking in the playoffs, shooting way too much and not being a good floor leader.

Anyway, Marbury spoke out Monday about the federal dogfighting conspiracy charges against Michael Vick, while promoting his new line of sneakers.

"I think it's tough," Marbury said, according to Albany TV station Capital News 9. "I think, you know, we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals. You know, from what I hear, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors."

Don't worry, Michael Vick. Stephon Marbury has your back - and will likely be joining you in jail after he gets busted on some gun-related charge in the next year or two.

On Monday, his lawyer said that Vick will plead guilty to the federal charges of conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and conspiracy to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture. He also faces prosecution in Virginia.

"I think it's tough that we build Michael Vick up and then we break him down," Marbury said. "I think he's one of the superb athletes, and he's a good human being. I just think that he fell into a bad situation."

Who, exactly is breaking Michael Vick down, Stephon? Dogs everywhere aren't breathing a sigh of relief because the media is going to jail. Think about it.

What's next? Stephon accusing "us" of building up Mel Gibson and then breaking him down... after he drove drunk, blamed it on the Jews and sexually harassed a female cop?

Sometimes, the media isn't all evil, but merely reporting the news that happens. Imagine that. Oh, and hunting deer and game birds are legal, regulated activities, Steph.

Mel Gibson mug shotHe may be an egomaniac and anti-Semitic loon with a bad driving record - not to mention a penchant for blowing his top.

But in the spirit of rehabilitation and second chances, a Malibu, Calif., judge has just given Mel Gibson two thumbs up!

Apparently, the star of The Passion of the Christ, Lethal Weapon, Signs and many other films is making good progress following his embarrassing DUI arrest in the summer of 2006.

TMZ was in the courtroom for Mel Gibson's progress hearing this morning, and while Mel was a no-show (Gibson is not required to be there), his lawyer, Blair Berk, was on hand.

Berk filed paperwork today proving that Mel Gibson completed four and a half months of AA meetings and has paid all fines resulting from the drunken tirade and arrest.

No word on whether he has seen Britney Spears at any meetings.

The judge announced that Mel's attendance at AA meetings is now voluntary, and that Mel must appear at the next hearing date, scheduled for February 15.

Check out our gallery of celebrity mug shots. It's a photo collection that has grown a lot in the last 14 months, but Mel's remains one of the best.

TV watchers love to hate the slimy Spencer Pratt so much that you'd think he were on The Bold and the Beautiful instead of MTV's reality hit, The Hills.

We know. Spencer Pratt is neither bold, nor beautiful. That's not the point.

Paparazzi Mobs Perez, Speidi

The privileged son of a dentist and a stay-at-home mom, Spencer is the scheming foil to Lauren Conrad's All-American girl - and he isn't shy about it, on or off the show.

"Spencer is enthralled with being in magazines," an Us Weekly source reports in the celebrity gossip rag's new issue.

"He literally has a shrine in his room at his parents' house of all the magazines he's been in."

Even Pratt's carefully orchestrated proposal to girlfriend Heidi Montag on a Santa Barbara beach was beyond shady.

They denied the engagement to Entertainment Weekly, after telling Us August 8 they were, in fact, getting hitched. And the "engagement ring" Pratt purchased at an L.A. mall?

Price estimates from those familiar with the store range from $250 to $2,500. Hardly the bling ol' Spence made it out to be.

Another source confirms the question was not popped: "Spencer didn't propose to Heidi. It's a promise ring. He just knows what people what to see on The Hills."

Episode two of The Hills' Season 3 corroborates this - there was no proposal, just an awkward thrusting of the bogus diamond ring in Heidi's general direction.

Meanwhile, Pratt's quest to dominate the D-list has taken a toll on his bros. Brody Jenner used to be one of his best pals, but now the two aren't speaking.

Some say - and we don't doubt - that it's because Jenner began hanging out with his ex-girlfriend, Lauren Conrad, again recently.

Brody Jenner says, on the subject: "It's unfortunate that Spencer and I aren't friends anymore, but I will always consider him family."

Cute. We'll always consider him a no-talent ass clown with an acne problem. But hey, Spencer Pratt sure makes each day more interesting here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Hey, she's 18, alright? We can say that kind of thing now! Woooo!

Anyway, here's what this young star has to say about a certain beverage.

Paris Protege

"You don't have to be a hero to feel invincible," notes one of The Hollywood Gossip's favorite celebrities. "That's why I drink milk. The protein helps build muscle, and some studies suggest teenagers who choose it tend to be leaner. Cheers to that."

Of course, it's easy for Hayden Panettiere to sing the praises of the "Body By Milk" campaign, of which she is the newest spokeswoman. The girl can't even buy booze! Come on!

Hayden Panettiere has got milk. And has got it goin' on!

We love to joke about her, but it's nice to see that for all the celebrity gossip she generates, Hayden Panettiere continues to set a good example for her fans.

Now if we can just get Britney Spears to stay home and have a glass of milk with Jayden James Federline once in awhile, instead of staying up all night partying topless and guzzling margaritas in the pool with Matt Encinias. Just an idea.

Looks like Arizona Cardinals quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart and oily heir Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis have a lot in common.

And we're not even talking about the fact that Matt has likely hooked up with Brandon Davis' BFF, Paris Hilton. We're talking about sweating. Hard.

Seriously, anybody got a towel? Check out this pic of Matt Leinart (right) inside a club in Scottsdale, Ariz., last weekend, up against this file photo of Greasy Bear...

Matt Leinart and Brandon Davis: Kindred, greasy spirits?

We're going to have to go with Matt Leinart, although this image of him all sweaty in a club isn't likely to help in his nasty custody fight with Brynn Cameron. The USC basketball player and mother of his son, Cole, adamantly disapproves of his party-boy lifestyle.

As for Brandon Davis, well, he's gross. But at least this isn't a picture of brother Jason Davis, a.k.a. Gummi Bear. We're grateful that the latter bear is in no way part of a story on our site today. For once. Although that is subject to change if TMZ posts any pictures of him.

Contrary to a report in yesterday's New York Post, train wreck Britney Spears has not nixed plans to record a duet with her ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake.

In fact, a source close to Britney tells Us Weekly that no such plan existed.

Jayden James, Britney Spears Picture

According to the source, "There have been absolutely no plans for Britney and Justin to record a duet together."

For once, we believe the Britney Spears source. There's no way Timberlake would risk his reputation as a serious musician by agreeing to record with this nut job.

Britney Spears. February 2007. Comment rendered unnecessary.

"There have been lots of discussions about who Britney is working with, and Justin has not been one of them," the source says. "Nothing with Justin Timberlake was ever even discussed. Justin has had no time to do it between planning his HBO special, his own Video Music Awards stuff and working with Madonna."

Meanwhile, a source also clarifies the Page Six claims about Spears' record label, Jive, and their concerns about Spears and her insane actions in recent months.

"Jive is still supportive of Britney and has no doubt she will deliver when the time comes. They are invested in her but obviously a little nervous for the performance because nobody exactly knows what she is going to do. She is working feverishly to pull it off. Jive just can't wait until they have music to play for people to show them what Britney has actually done."

Don't hold your breath, Jive.

We're curious as to how frolicking topless in the pool with Matt Encinias, possibly engaging in a lesbian romp with Shannon Funk or getting her freak on with Criss Angel signifies "working," but it's clear Spears is doing some things feverishly, at least.

Count this celebrity news site among those tuning in to the MTV VMAs September 9 to see the fallen star in action. Or to learn she bailed at the last second.

Move over, Cole Cameron Leinart.

There's another illegitimate, NFL celebrity baby ready to give you a run for your (cute) money.

Bridget Moynahan Nude

Actress Bridget Moynahan finally gave birth to her baby boy Wednesday in Los Angeles. A rep for the actress reports that "both mother and baby are doing well."

No word on the little guy's name, weight or whether he can evade a weak-side blitz.

The baby's father, of course, is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who Moynahan dated for three years prior to breaking up in late 2006.

Since the breakup, Brady has been seeing supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Though it's unclear whether Brady, 30, was present at the birth, he was not at Patriots practice today, and was spotted at an L.A. hospital, carrying flowers. Aww.

In a recent interview with the AP, Tom Brady said he hoped he'd be able to take time off for the birth, though he suspected his schedule and coach might nix that.

"I wish I [knew when the baby will be born]," he told reporters. "That's God's decision. The good lord is making that call. So I think everybody's anxious. I'll put it that way."

Six Degrees star Bridget Moynahan, 36, announced she was pregnant back in February, allegedly surprising her three-time Super Bowl champion ex.

A friend of Tom Brady said at the time: "He's disappointed this is how she's decided to play it. She announced it to make him look like a jerk."

Meanwhile, his official statement read, "Tom and his family are excited about the pregnancy, and want to thank everyone who has shown support."

Hayden Panettiere celebrated her 18th birthday Tuesday in a big, important way ... by registering to vote at the Declare Yourself offices in Beverly Hills!  

Hayden Panettiere: Sexy Cowgirl

Oh, and Hayden Panettiere also held a large birthday bash.

The actress and 75 friends and family partied at LG House in Malibu. On hand to help Hayden drink Diet Cokes were Stephen Colletti (Hayden's oh-so-lucky boyfriend of a year), BFF Rumer Willis and random family hanger-on Mario Lopez.

Also present were Heroes co-stars Adrian Pasdar (and wife Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks), Milo Ventimiglia, Greg Grunberg, Zachary Quinto, and Kristen Bell.

The food was Italian with pasta and Japanese with different types of sushi and rolls. The red velvet cake said (wait for it) "Happy Birthday, Hayden!" Fitting.

Having just turned 18, we suppose it's acceptable that Hayden Panettiere needs some blowing lessons. It took her five tries to get all those candles out!
