Britney Spears has answered back to those who've said she's been partying too hard since filing for divorce from Kevin Federline after two years of marriage.

"It's been so long since I've been out on the town with friends. It's also been 2 years since I've even celebrated my birthday," Spears, who marked her 25th birthday bash on Saturday with a trip to Mr. Chow's restaurant in Beverly Hills, wrote on her official website.

Queen and Subjects

The singer has been spotted out recently with with the venerable Ho Train - gal pals including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan - and revealing photographs of her getting out of the car have circulated online.

Britney made a thinly-veiled, joking reference to the now infamous crotch shot debacle in her online statement.

"Every move I make at this point has been magnified more than I expected, and I probably did take my new found freedom a bit too far," Spears said.

"Anyway, thank God for Victoria Secrets' [sic] new underwear line! I look forward to a new year, new music and a new me."

She signs off: "I'm just getting started... Happy Holidays everyone!"

Eh? Getting started what, Brit? Giving us nude pictures? Turning your life around? Birthing massive amounts of babies? Elaborate for us, girl! Inquiring, gossiping minds want to know.

It's been six months since The Hollywood Gossip made its debut on the World Wide Internets. From single, humble post about Lindsay Lohan grew a giant, a website so jam-packed with celebrity news, rumors and breasts that some days, we can barely make sense of it all.

On this special six-month anniversary, T.H. Gossip would like to thank you, the fans who make us one of the fastest growing celebrity gossip sites on the web.

Now let's pause and take a look back at some of the unforgettable, marquee moments that have defined the first six months of THG:

SEX TAPES

If the last six months have taught us anything, it is not to underestimate the power of the celebrity sex tape.

All it takes is one of those things to get the tabloids buzzing and bring a D-List star back into the limelight - and make lots and lots of money for David Hans Schmidt.

While the Dustin Diamond sex tape is the only confirmed amateur porn video made by a "celebrity" in THG's time (and probably the first to feature the Dirty Sanchez), there were rumors of similar porn involving Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson and others. Not to mention some Marcia Cross nude pics that Schmidt somehow got. That guy is a sick, sick bastard.

BIGOTED OUTBURSTS

Thursday, July 27, is a night that will live in Hollywood Gossip infamy. Even in the crazy world of celebrity news, there may never again be a story quite like the drunken driving arrest-turned anti-Semetic tirade brought to us by Mel Gibson that evening.

Rest assured, however, that former Seinfeld star Michael Richards (and to a lesser extent, Andy Dick) are trying like hell to grab a piece of the pie. Racist and disturbed as said pie may be.

CELEBRITY BABIES

So many to list, so little time. We'll stick to the most popular. We were predicting that little Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt would be the most talked about celebrity baby ever. But what Shiloh embodies in cuteness, she lacks in controversey. TomKat refused to release any pictures of Suri Cruise for, like, ever, leading some people to think the little Asian sweetheart didn't even exist. Things got even weirder when Britney's second son, Jayden James, was originally thought to have been named Sutton Pierce Federline.

There were others, too, of course. Thijs is one of them.

WEDDINGS

Tom Cruise. Katie Holmes. It's all we heard about for months, and despite getting left off the invite list (thanks guys), we were thrilled to cover the Italian gala as only we could. From very far away, and ripping those crazy, fun-loving Scientology worshippers at every turn.

As for other weddings... were there any other weddings? TomKat seems to occupy all our available brain cells. As we've seen in recent months, people steadfastly stating they are not getting married is the new thing, even if they're happy and in love (and sexy!) like Brangelina.

BREAKUPS

Perhaps the most popular topic of any day at T.H. Gossip. Couples seem to be splitting up faster than Nicole Richie sheds pounds or Paris Hilton's panties come off after a night at Hyde. The last six months marked the end of some couples we thought would never break up - and some that didn't exactly shock us by parting ways.

Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody, a cute couple on and off the set of The OC, recently confirmed they're done. Sadly, the same can't be said for their television show. Denise Richards dumped and got a restraining order against Charlie Sheen (who loves him some drugs and hookers), though they've agreed to divorce amicably since. Ryan Phillippe couldn't stand his wife's higher salary and greater fame any longer, possibly cheating on her with Abbie Cornish.

Back in early summer, sir Paul McCartney and his gold-digging, one-legged former "instructional sex tape" star/wife Heather Mills announced their split.

A lot of funny stuff followed - mostly related to Mills' tawdry past. Many more juicy tidbits about Mills having sex with Arab arms dealers is still to come. While all this was going on, Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock got married, only to call it quits after a whole three months of wedded bliss.

Oh, and Britney Spears is single again and partying a lot after announcing she plans to divorce K-Fed. Maybe you heard?

In closing, we'd like to once again thank our fans, and the celebrities themselves, without whom this wouldn't be possible.

We dedicate the next six months to Peter Sarsgaard. Peace.

Just hours after he grabbed headlines for the first time in years by unleashing the n-bomb in a comedy club, "stand-up comedian" and "actor" Andy Dick admits he made a huge mistake.

Groping the Fellas

In an apology issued through his publicist, Dick said:

"I chose to make a joke about a subject that is not funny. In an attempt to make light of a serious subject, I have offended a lot of people, and I am sorry for my insensativity [sic]. I wish to apologize to Ian, to the club, and its patrons and to anyone who was hurt or offended by my remark."

Andy was heckling comedian Ian Bagg at L.A.'s Improv comedy club Saturday, when he sudddenly got out of his seat and jumped onstage, cracked jokes about Michael Richards, and referred to the crowd as a bunch of n!ggers.

You know. Standard procedure these days. What began with a drunk rant by Mel Gibson has filtered down to the D-List celebs and beyond. We'll be sure to update you if this Dick is tarred and feathered, but expect this is the last you will hear of Andy Dick for awhile.

Hopefully, if there is a God, ever.

We've seen many Ashlee Simpson pictures in our day. Some of which are kind of attractive, others just plain annoying. They really run the gamut. This one may take the cake, though, in terms of leaving T.H. Gossip utterly perplexed:

P. Wentz and A. Simpson

Sure, it's kind of cute at first glance. The artsy black and white style. The girlish hair, the innocent expression. But it begs a couple of questions:

  • What possible use does she have for the microphone dangling in front of her, as she clearly can't carry a tune to save her life? What an absolute waste (of a good mic and of oxygen).
  • How many body parts can one person have plastic surgery on? She's gotten than nose worked on, and that chin has taken a beating as well. Quite possibly her breasts, too - those things are looking much more supple than in months past.
  • Most importantly, why is this person famous? Lane Garrison has more talent in his pinky finger than Ashlee will ever have (even when you consider the sizable fake boobs).

We may never get the answers to these queries. But it's no wonder Braxton Olita dumped her ass. Beyond pole dancing with Britney Spears, it's hard to see what career this "singer" and "actress" should have.

Yep, she's as worthless as they come. Sorry, Paris.

Actor/director Mel Gibson has been accused of reneging on his promise to meet Jewish leaders as part of his "path to healing" after making anti-Semitic remarks during an arrest for drunk driving.

The current President of the Zionist Organization Of America, Morton Klein, attempted to meet the star after he pledged that he would love to meet Jewish leaders to talk about the July incident.

Gibson the Crazed

However, Klein was told the tough guy actor had changed his mind.

"I called his publicist, told him I would be in Los Angeles for 10 days and would be willing to meet with Gibson privately, off the record. The publicist called back and said Gibson doesn't want to meet Jewish leaders after all. We've told our people not to support any of his projects."

Yikes. Maybe Mel isn't as repentant as he claims to be. In his defense, he has laid relatively low since his arrest (even with his new film, Apocalypto, garnering wide praise) and did appear apologetic. And he is certainly rising in the court of public opinion now that Michael Richards has been exposed as an insane racist as well.

Andy Dick recently went on a racist tirade too, but that guy's not even a real star. He is, however, a dick. Thank you, thank you. We're here all day!

Rap icons Curtis Jackson and Marshall Mathers (better known as 50 Cent and Eminem) put their heads together during a taping of BET's 106 & Park in New York on Monday. The close pals appeared on the program to promote Slim Shady's latest work Eminem Presents: The Re-Up, which features tracks from his own record label's newest protégés as well as some special vocal stylings by 50 Cent.

Fifty Cent

One can only wonder if they discussed 50's recent bashing of that "Oreo," Oprah Winfrey, or the recent spell of warm weather they've been getting in the city. Or what they think of the brewing feud between Snoop Dogg and Suge Knight. What kind of name is Suge, anyway? Guess it's better than Marion - but that's not saying a whole lot.

One thing we're fairly certain came up: The Game sucks. Seriously. He's not good.

Putting rumors of their breakup to rest, Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend, her boyfriend of several months, bundle up for a dinner outing in London on Monday. See below: 

Nice to see they're still an item. Maybe rumors of their split can finally be put to rest. A few lingering questions are not ready to be put to rest, however:

  • Why does Rupert Friend look like a serial murderer?
  • Why has Rupert Friend not had his hair cut since 2003?
  • How did Rupert Friend possibly land Keira Knightley?

People are just lining up to take shots at Britney Spears.

The latest is Saturday Night Live's sassy news anchor, Amy Poehler, who seemed to speak for all of America on last weekend's episode in reciting a serious vagina monologue of sorts - one directed at the exhibitionist Mrs. Federline and other Hollywood actresses seemingly dedicated to pants-free living.

Hottest Britney Spears Picture

In reference to the infamous nude Britney Spears pictures from November, when the pop star was caught baring all during one of her many clubbing ventures with that tramp Paris Hilton, Amy had this to say during SNL's mid-show "Weekend Update" segment:

"Speaking of Britney Spears, I'd just like to take a minute to address this latest trend: flashing your business while coming and/or leaving a limosine. Ladies, you need to cool it. Nobody wants to see your baby factory... What's next? Shots of stars pooping out of a window?

And lastly, ladies, what's up with all the deforestation going on down there? You need hair down there! It's a backup system for underwear! Even when you're showing it, you're not really showing it! There was a time when a lady garden was as big as a slice of New York pizza. Then it turned into an upside down John Waters mustache!"

Wow. Typical Amy Poehler. So wrong... yet right on target and not unfunny. Never has someone gone on an anti-crotch shot rant quite like this.

The Hollywood Gossip is proud to bring you Tale of the Tape, in which we break down prospective matchups within the celebrity world that you might never have considered. Because they are pointless, and above all, not real.

Our current match-up features an acclaimed actor we feel like we know personally after his many neurotic, hilarious years on Seinfeld, and some random dude who happens to share the same name, and who we only know because he once got with Britney Spears.

Jason Alexander Mug Shot

That's right, it's the Jason Alexander who was married to Britney Spears for less than three days back in 2004, versus the Jason Alexander best known as George Constanza from 1989-1998. Who will emerge victorious? Let's find out...

1. REAL NAME

Jason Alexander (Britney): Jason Allen Alexander
Jason Alexander (Seinfeld): Jason Greenspan
Edge: Jason Alexander (Britney)

2. PRETTY WOMAN TIES

Edge: Jason Alexander (Seinfeld)

4. FRIEND WITH WEIRD ASS NAME

THE VERDICT: The goofball comic proved too much for his younger, Britney banging namesake, eking out a 5.5-4.5 victory. Michael Richards would be proud - if not a little spiteful and insane. But we have a feeling that among these two Jason Alexanders, we'll be hearing more from the charming hick from Louisiana in the coming months. Because he knows Britney. That's kind of how the celebrity gossip business works - no offense Jason.

If you thought Michael Richards was a... dumbass, well, you were very right. But it turns out he's not the only racist Dick in Los Angeles.

According to our sources at TMZ, hopped-up loser comic Andy Dick hopped on to the stage Saturday at L.A.'s Improv comedy club and proceeded to drop the n-bomb on a room full of stunned clubgoers.

Andy Dick Drunk

Andy was heckling comedian Ian Bagg during his routine, when Dick allegedly got out of his seat, jumped onstage and began joking with Bagg. The subject of last month's notorious Michael Richards rant came up, but the two comics quickly moved on.

Then, however, as Dick moved to exit the stage, he suddenly grabbed the mic and shouted at the crowd, "You're all a bunch of n!ggers!"

The stunned crowd gasped and stared at each other. Bagg tried to play it cool and move on with his set, but the laughs weren't there.

Calls to Dick's rep were not immediately returned. We expect Mel Gibson to come out with his standard "Hey, rants happen" quote any day now. Man. Did anyone know Andy Dick was still around? That guy is below D-List. Especially now. No way he even reaches the level of Britney Spears groupie.
