Troubled star Britney Spears is in secret talks over a comeback world tour - one that could net her $100 million - according to several sources.

The 26-year-old pop singer is said to be "desperate to get back on the road" and leave her recent troubles behind her, says the Showbizspy.

Spears has already begun training for the mega-money shows with "grueling dance sessions" at her home away from home, Millennium Dance Complex.

Her record label, BMG, is confident that she can restore her squeaky-clean image ... or at least move in that direction while on the road.

"Things are looking up for [Britney Spears]," said a source reportedly close to the singer. "She's finally focusing on her career again."

Will the next Britney Spears concert tour feature the current train wreck - or at least something resembling the Britney Spears of yore (above)? Gulp. Wow.

Hiring ex-manager Larry Rudolph again would help, but since her epic disaster of a performance at the MTV VMAs in 2007, Britney has a lot to prove.

"There will be no more on-stage blunders," the source said. "Britney's turned a corner and the world will be amazed with her."

We'll believe it when we see it, but we've been told that Britney Spears is ready to work her way back to the top and is even finally trying to get that pre-baby mama body back into top form. Remember that? See photo above.

Please, Britney, make it happen.

Continuing its immensely popular spring run, The Hills returns with an all-new episode tonight on MTV. Over the weekend, the Boston Globe's Joanna Weiss throughout examined the obsession millions of people have with The Hills...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cute Lauren Conrad Pic

I still remember the first time I stumbled on The Hills, and how confused I was. It couldn't be scripted, since the dialogue was awful and the characters could barely deliver lines. But it couldn't be a reality show, because the scenes played out too perfectly. Cameras always happened to be rolling when the phone rang or the meaningful text message arrived.

It is, of course, a reality show, but a strangely innovative one.

Lauren Conrad and her friends in Los Angeles might replay scenes they've already lived through, or make carefully timed entrances into rooms so the cameras can get the right angle, but they never give a hint that they're being filmed.

The Hills, a coming-of-age follow-up to MTV's hit Laguna Beach (which also starred Conrad) drops the pretense of the confessional and the sense of manufactured conflict in favor of a new charade: pretending that the cameras aren't there.

As viewers, we're expected to keep up our end of the bargain.

Forget all about Lauren Conrad and new clothing line or her Mercedes, forget the single Heidi Montag recently released. Pretend these are normal, struggling young women, trying to make it in the cutthroat world of L.A.

The Hills' Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port.

One girl, a smart, poised journalism student in Boston - whose life must be very different from LC's - told me she likes the show because she can relate.

She's not the only one.

The Hills is an unmitigated MTV hit, and not just among the college crowd. John McCain, who won an endorsement from Heidi Montag, told Time magazine he never misses the show, and it's hard to tell if he was being facetious.

The first of the current eight-episode run of spring "bonus" installments of The Hills drew 4.8 million viewers, the show's highest ratings to date.

The day after it aired, the episode drew 1.8 million streams from MTV.com.

Here's an absolute stunner. Reports from OK! Magazine that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are planning a summer wedding are actually not true!

"They are not even engaged," a rep for Nicole Richie said.

OK! Magazine (the same celebrity news publication that recently ran a 2003 picture of Britney Spears with its current cover story about the singer losing weight), reported online about the supposed Richie-Madden wedding.

"Invites for the blessed event are set to go out next week" and "a celebrity party planner is getting everything together for the nuptials," it said.

Nicole Richie will remain an unwed baby mama for the foreseeable future.

Alas, it turns out they are not following the lead of Jamie Lynn Spears and Casey Aldridge, however, and plan to remain unwed parents for now.

Richie and Madden welcomed daughter Harlow Winter Kate in January.

After a much-publicized break up, it's safe to say that Benji Madden and Sophie Monk have moved on in opposing directions.

The Good Charlotte singer immediately jumped into bed with Paris Hilton, becoming the latest notch on a bedpost that's seen more carvings than a caveman's lair.

Monk, however, has seemingly gone in the more metrosexual direction: she was spotted with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest over the weekend. They left L.A. club Foxtail nightclub in the same car.

Has Ryan Seacrest really seen Sophie Monk nude? If so, we gotta start hosing our own television shows and flirting with British men on them.

If these two really are hittin it, what would Simon Cowell say?

Remember when X17 - a celebrity photo agency - made the tiny mistake of accusing Tony Parker of having an affair with model Alexandra Paressant? Despite the fact that, you know, the Spurs guard had never met the gold digger?

Well, months later, the company posted an apology to Parker and wife Eva Longoria:

"X17online.com and X7 [sic], Inc. regret having been misled by Ms. Paressant and her representatives and apologize to Mr. Parker for any damage or inconvenience this may have caused him or his wife."

In a related story, Ashley Dupre would like to apologize to Eliot Spitzer for any inconvenience her charging him money for sex may have caused.

Last week's American Idol Power Poll angered many David Archuleta fans. They can't believe we referred to their favorite as "boring."

Sorry, but we're not taking it back.

As talented as Archuleta is, Simon Cowell reminds us all the time that performance matters. All we see from Archuleta on a weekly basis is the same pained, emotional expression as he sings ballad after ballad. We'd never buy that album.

Who's would we purchase? Perhaps this week's rankings will give you an idea:

1. David Cook: As news of his brother's cancer has spread, Cook has managed to block out the pain and focus on fresh performances every week. We're ever more impressed than ever with him.

2. Michael Johns: Can sing slow, can sing fast. Has the look and the sound to really go far in the music world.

3. David Archuleta: Simply due to his voice, we'll never drop Archuleta lower than the three spot. But, as we said earlier, it's impossible to see how he could sell any albums.

4. Brooke White: We still love this folk singer, despite her difficult last couple weeks. Along with Brooke's water works, tears flowed from The Hollywood Gossip staff last Wednesday night, as we feared for White in the bottom three. Hang in there, Brooke!

5. Carly Smithson: If she wins, Carly can afford to buy her husband a few more tattoos.

On the Block: Kristy Lee Cook, Syesha Mercado

Wow.

Getting taunted by the celebrity news media sucks, fo' sho' - but retaliating with the most disgusting slurs in the English language? Gosh.

The only person happy about Brandon Davis' rant Thursday night may be Michael Richards, who was just dethroned as king of the offensive tirade.

A member of the celebrity gossip press was definitely laying into Brandon Davis at Foxtail on Thursday night, but Greasy Bear took it to whole 'nother level by calling the African-American photographer a "n!gger."

The pack of celebrity news photographers was stunned by this - and ripped back, calling Davis "Greasy Crotch" as well as a "d**chebag."

Brandon Davis: Possibly the worst human in Hollywood.

An hour later, cameras caught the pathetic scumbag oil heir fuming outside another club, Villa, where he called a TMZ photographer "a f@ggot."

That was just Thursday.

On Friday evening, the ever-disgusting Brandon Davis showed up at the nightclub / scene of the crime - and was arm-and-arm with some random, unidentified black man who told the paps, "I'm a n!gga man, he likes me."

How anyone would choose to hang out with Greasy Bear for any reason is beyond comprehension to us, but that's by no means anything new.

Ever the coward, Davis refused to say a word. No apologies, nothing. Guess he's the same guy who went on the legendary firecrotch rant.

Watch the video of this HERE.

Makes Jason Davis look downright huggable.

Jamie Lynn Spears celebrated her 17th birthday with fiancé Casey Aldridge shopping at Wal-Mart and having dinner at Ruby Tuesday, People says.

Really. Which is great. In fact, we support whatever makes America's favorite unwed teen mom-to-be and teen baby-daddy happy.

"They both seemed really happy, both in really good moods," a source tells People of the couple's outing near Aldridge's home in Liberty, Miss.

"Jamie Lynn had a big smile on her face."

With Wal-Mart purchases in hand, Spears, who is pregnant with Aldridge's child, took in a quiet dinner with Casey, 18, at the restaurant.

"It was just the two of them," says the source.

"They were like a little adult couple, very low-key."

Jamie Lynn Spears recently has been flashing a big engagement ring from Casey Aldridge. They are expecting their baby this summer.

Meanwhile in Los Angeles, Jamie Lynn's big sis Britney Spears gathered with the rest of the Spears clan for a family dinner in Los Angeles.

Britney, parents Lynne and Jamie and brother Bryan Spears joined a group of about 10 people for an Italian feast at Ristorante Peppone in Brentwood.

"[Britney Spears] was in a great mood, and had dinner with her family and friends," a restaurant source says.

This shouldn't come as a shock to any celebrity gossip followers - as rumors have swirled for days - but a source told People Magazine that Beyonce and Jay Z got married last night.

"It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair â€" close friends and family," the friend said.

The ceremony was followed by a party at the rapper's Tribeca apartment that. In attendance were Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles, her father/manager Mathew, her sister Solange, her Destiny's Child pals Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and the couple's friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

Will Beyonce take her new husband's last name? Will she now be known as Beyonce Z?
