Unlike Britney Spears, some singers' career prospects are actually trending up. Namely, a cheerleader who wants to be a rock star!

Well, she's not really a cheerleader, she just plays one on Heroes. But Hayden Panettiere is making a move into music as well, and a new single from Hayden is, surprisingly, not half bad. It's typical pop-rock cheesiness, yes, but not half bad.

The lyrical brilliance of Hayden Panettiere is evident early on as the track begins with "So many memories of you and me, like the time we drove to the O.C. ..."

It's enough to bring a tear to one's eye.

Kevin Federline continues to look relatively normal, even more like a stand-up guy by the day. All just by being Kevin Federline.

This happens when you were once married - and are forever tied to - Britney Spears.

While Britney struggled at the Video Music Awards in Las Vegas, her former husband was concentrating on family, throwing a backyard pool party Sunday for their two sons' birthdays.

Personal assistants were seen picking up banners, balloons and an ice cream cake, all in the theme of the animated movie Cars, for Jayden James, who turns 1 tomorrow (Wednesday), and Sean Preston, who turns 2 on Friday.

Spears's parents, Jamie and Lynne - who aren't speaking to Britney, of course - stopped by for the party at Federline's home, joining about 20 guests.

They had also visited their grandchildren the day before, while Spears was hitting the club scene in Vegas before her widely panned VMAs debacle.

Britney and Kevin are embroiled in an increasingly fierce custody battle over their boys. They currently have 50-50 custody, but FedEx is seeking more time, serving subpoenas to people in Spears' inner-circle to illustrate her bad parenting.

Personal assistants Alli Sims, Shannon Funk, and Daimon Shippen, and former manager Larry Rudolph have already gotten served hard in the case.

Now we know why The Bachelor star, U.S. Navy Lt. Andy Baldwin, called off his engagement to Tessa Horst. He had another woman in his back pocket!

The hunky Navy diver and triathlete was spotted getting cozy with a former Miss Iran, Sepideh Haftgoli, in a Los Angeles park this past Sunday.

Check out this pic of Baldwin and Sepideh Haftgoli via JustJared.com ...

Andy and Sepideh: So cute together.

Baldwin proposed to Tessa Horst at the end of the most recent season of ABC's The Bachelor, but called off the engagement last month. The two said they were still together, however. Wonder if Tessa knows about Sepideh Haftgoli. Hmm.

This isn't the first semi-famous dude to be linked to Sepideh Haftgoli. She reportedly dated former Friends star David Schwimmer a few years back.

Here's a piece of celebrity gossip that has left us shocked and appalled.

Perez Hilton reports that The Hills star, Lauren Conrad, was seen making out with a random dude in Vegas this past weekend before the VMAs. Which would be cool, as she currently "dates like a guy" and has every right to play the field.

But supposedly it was ... (gulp)... Cisco Adler.

LC and Cisco Adler were kissing - with tongue - Saturday night, according to several disgusted spies working in conjunction with Perez - a man who, despite his negative attributes, generally knows his $h!t when it comes to the latest celebrity rumors.

Lauren Conrad and Cisco Adler: Conradler? Please, LC. Say it ain't so.

Rarely has a live performance been as universally panned and ridiculed as when Britney Spears took the stage at last night's MTV Music Video Awards.

Spears is reportedly reeling after her first major public appearance in four years, in which she donned silver and black sparkly underwear and knee-high black boots to mail in her new single "Gimme More."

Fans were in hysterics, critics claimed she looked disinterested and unfit, and her fellow celebrities seemed to agree.

Speaking backstage after the event, the great Akon said, "That could have been better. She needed to focus more. She looked nervous and I think the pressure got to her."

Common added, "I think it didn't seem like she wanted to be there. There wasn't any spark, it didn't feel like life was there."

Kanye West said, "I have no words."

As if that weren't enough, Britney also had to endure withering remarks from comedian Sarah Silverman during the ceremony.

She sarcastically remarked, "Was that incredible? Britney Spears. Wow. She is amazing. She is 25 years old and she's already accomplished everything she's going to accomplish in her life. It's mind-blowing."

Silverman also called Brit's sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, "the most adorable mistakes," and brought up the fun topic of Britney's shaved crotch.

The New York Post may have summed it up best: "[Britney Spears] jiggled like Jell-O and didn't seem to care that she danced like she had a load in her pants."

They may have gotten dissed semi-hard by reality TV hater Justin Timberlake, but the lovely ladies from The Hills certainly made a positive impression Sunday, at least as far as this celebrity gossip blog is concerned.

Each dressed in their own gorgeous dresses, Lauren Conrad (wearing a Lauren Conrad fashion line custom design), Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port looked nothing short of fabulous at last night's MTV Music Video Awards.

Then again, when Britney Spears opens up an awards show, everyone else comes off looking good by comparison. With the possible exception of Kid Rock.

Anyway, check out this awesome pic of Lauren, Audrina and Whitney ...

Tell us, fans of The Hills. Whose VMAs dress do you like best? And how glad are you that Heidi and Spencer had other plans and didn't show up!

Who's that glamorous goddess? Why, none other than Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere, who draws a crowd wherever she goes. Particularly at the MTV VMAs ...

Out and About with HP

As usual, Hayden Panettiere steals the show, this time at the Music Video Awards.

With an amazing career just beginning, and magazine-cover good looks, it's no shock that Hayden Panettiere remains a favorite of all the agencies that make a living at taking celebrity photos. Hey, she's legal now. Ogle freely. Ogle often.

Kate Walsh, the redheaded star of Grey's Anatomy and its new spin-off, Private Practice, gave her new husband, movie executive Alex Young, a private anatomy lesson, if you will, at their L.A. abode. Now that's some (Mc)steamy stuff!

Kate Walsh, Neil Andrea

Walsh married Young in Ojai, Calif. September 1, but on this day, she let it all hang out in a baby blue string bikini, drink in hand, on the front lawn of the new house the couple just bought. Now this here is one practice she shouldn't keep private!

Kate says she's on cloud nine with her new husband and her new series set to debut September 27. We can certainly see why. Follow the link to read more about the Walsh-Young wedding in an interview with the sexy star of Private Practice.

Justin Timberlake? Not a fan of celebrity gossip. Or reality TV, for that matter!

His feelings on the subject became very apparent during Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, when he accepted the award for Best Male Artist by lambasting MTV for its choice of programming.

Lauren Conrad and New Boyfriend?

Specifically, he implored MTV to ditch reality TV and play more videos.

The girls from The Hills â€" Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port â€" were to present Timberlake with Male Artist of the Year honors.

But after Lauren Conrad announced him as the winner, things got weird.

A fourth female mysteriously showed up on stage to join The Hills girls to hand the hardware to Timbaland, who in turn gave it to Justin. Timberlake did not make any eye contact or thank any of The Hills girls. Deliberately.

"Play more damn music videos. We don't want to see the Simpsons on reality television," said Timberlake upon accepting the award, referring to lame sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson. "Play more videos."

And then when accepting the award for the Quadruple Threat Award, Justin Timberlake reiterated, "I want to challenge MTV to play more videos!"

He makes a point. And this wasn't the only award show that had Justin at center stage of late. He recently won an Emmy with Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg in the Creative Arts category for their hilarious short film, "D!ck in a Box."

In Andy's acceptance speech (Timberlake was not present), he joked, "I think it's safe to say that when we first set out to make this, we were all thinking 'Emmy!'"

Andy Samberg dedicated the award to a real "up and comer" - his "D!ck in a Box" creative partner, saying Justin Timberlake's "clearly very talented and could use a break. So, Justin, if you're out there, congrats to you, kid."

Call it the battle of the boobs. Or for the boobs. Think about it. We're talking about Pamela Anderson and her giant breasts here!

The MTV Video Music Awards prides itself on its unscripted moments, and Sunday's show was no exception: Kid Rock punched Tommy Lee.

During the ceremony.

"Tommy Lee was sitting by Diddy. [Kid Rock] just walked up and decked him," said MTV veejay Sway, who witnessed the event.

It was unclear how the fight started, and there was no immediate word on whether the copes got involved. According to an onlooker in the audience, "They had each other at the necks, they were practically strangling each other."

Another eyewitness saw Tommy Lee escorted out, "screaming the f-word over and over again." He was thrown out in front of thousands of fans.

While the fight was not televised, it was certainly a topic of conversation during the ceremony.

As Jamie Foxx came out to present the Best New Artist award with Jennifer Garner, he joked, "Someone needs to stop all of this white-on-white crime. Tommy Lee and Kid Rock fighting like black folks, it's hilarious."

As the crowd hooted, Jamie Foxx, added, "Who won? I was in the bathroom." And he noted, in jest, "Pamela Anderson has got a hard choice to make."

Anderson, of course, has been married to both rockers, who have feuded in the past. While she most recently divorced Kid Rock - in February - she still maintains a friendship with Lee, with whom she has a sex tape and two sons.

Later in the telecast, Diddy also referenced the spat between the white trash rockers before introducing the final performance:

"I was supposed to be doing this with Kid Rock, but you know, we got to stop the violence," he joked. "It's not just hip-hop artists that fight!"

Britney Spears had no comment. But she was no doubt happy that something took the attention off of her god awful performance.
