A Britney Spears Nipple Slip

Madonna, 49, is the richest woman in music over the last year. Her one-time makeout partner, Britney Spears, came in 14th despite doing very little work!   

Despite being insane and doing nothing but go to Rite-Aid and parade around in no pants, Britney Spears ranked an impressive 14th on the list, earning $8 million from old hits, royalties and sales of her fragrances, etc.

Following Britney Spears: Carrie Underwood and Nelly Furtado ($7 million each), and Fergie, Jennifer Lopez and Sheryl Crow ($6 million each).

Please, no one tell Chris Crocker the following.

We fear for what that insane YouTube poster and Britney Spears fan would do if he discovered that terrorists were out to murder his beloved train wreck. And this was before they saw her MTV Video Music Awards performance!

Wow What a Dick

According to Aaron Klein's new book, "Schmoozing with Terrorists," our nation's enemies love celebrity gossip as much as we do.

In an interview with hater Muhammad Abdel-Al, the bad guy referred to Britney and Madonna as "prostitutes" and said: "If these two... keep doing what they will do, we of course will punish them... We can stone them and even we can kill them."

It's true. Check out the book's table of contents for yourself:

 

Of course, there are some celebrities the terrorists love, such as Richard Gere, Jane Fonda and Sean Penn. We're also guessing they won't do harm to Miss Iran, Sepideh Haftgoli... although she is dating an American in Andy Baldwin. So it's hard to say.

Naturally, the book also claims Jihadists love Mel Gibson.

Which is ironic. Because they hate freeeedooooom!

Ever since the hottest kiss ever, Madonna and Britney Spears have been inexorably linked in the minds of the public.

It's only fitting, then, that the pop star was caught taking off in her Escalade ESV without buckling her 17-month-old son.

Britney Spears and Jayden

Wait, which star are we talking about? The adopted mother of 17-month-old David Banda or troubled train wreck mom of Sean Preston (also 17 months)?

Amazingly, it's the 48-year-old Madonna who jeopardized her adopted son's life and provided The Hollywood Gossip amusement in this case.

There was no car seat," a source says. "She sat in the middle row, and they left with David on her lap."

Reps for the legendary singer/children's book author tell Us Weekly that "proper protection and security measures are always taken for Madonna's children."

No word on whether Madonna's rep also said Jason Wahler is a model citizen.

Rumor has it that Jayden James is already freaking that he's going to get dropped or abandoned at some point soon. We all know that Britney's lost her mind, so we don't blame him - but at least a sane Kevin Federline is taking care of the little tyke.

One would think that after raising three kids, finding spiritual enlightenment, and witnessing Britney Spears' amazing public crotch shot meltdown, Madonna would have it all figured out.

Apparently not. All we know is that these two need to make out again.

Angelina Jolie knows a thing or six dozen about adopting children from other countries.

Therefore, she can sympathize with Madonna, whose efforts to adopt 1-year-old David Banda from Malawi have sparked controversy.

Angelina Jolie is The Tourist

"I have been horrified by the attacks she's been subjected to," Jolie tells the French magazine Gala. "All that should count is the happiness of her little David."

Nevertheless, Jolie whose son Maddox, 5, and Zahara, who turned 2 on Monday, are from Cambodia and Ethiopia, respectively, has some criticism for the singer.

"Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where (David) was born," Jolie says. "It's a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal."

She would, however, steal the huband of Jennifer Aniston. But that's not really news anymore.

On Friday, Malawian child welfare official Adrina Mchiela said the government is satisfied with the way Madonna has been caring for David.

"We have been monitoring her and so far we see a loving mother in Madonna and David is very fine," she told Reuters.

In her interview with Gala, Jolie also talks about her relationship with Brad Pitt.

"Don't go repeating it whatever you do, but, yes I love him. I love him a lot," she says. "After I met him my life seemed more harmonious."

We assume that's how Nicole Richie felt once she discovered vomiting.

Let's shelve the topic of whose sperm helped spawn Anna Nicole Smith's daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, for a moment.

Instead, we'll focus on another baby's daddy: The father of the 1-year-old Malawian boy Madonna is hoping to adopt. He says he wants to ask the singer how his son is doing. There's just one problem.

Post-Coital Cigarette

"I don't have her phone and mailing addresses. All I want is to find out how my son is but I don't know how I can do it," Malawi's Daily Times quotes Yohane Banda as saying.

Banda reportedly spoke to the paper after it gave him a check for $788 from a Scottish nun named Christine Webster, who said she thinks David would have been better off staying in Malawi. Bono disagrees, however.

Still, according to the paper, Banda said he doesn't want David returned to him and asked that human rights groups â€" who in November were granted permission to help assess Madonna's fitness to adopt â€" not to interfere with his efforts to contact the singer.

"All I want is to find out how my child is doing and not to have him back," he said.

Seems fair enough, Madonna. You're being more unreasonable about this than Brooke Hogan would be if she claimed she could sing.

We're not sure how he feels about the Shanna Moakler vs. Paris Hilton feud.

But U2 singer, Bono, has made his feelings well known regarding the flak a certain material girl has recently received in light of her African baby adoption.

Madonna Enjoys Local Fare

The frontman hit back at critics of Madonna and praised the 48-year-old for giving one-year-old David Banda a chance of a better life.

"Madonna should be applauded for helping to take a child out of the worst poverty imaginable and giving him a better chance in life"Bono said. "Baby David is lucky to have been adopted by someone who can give him a chance of survival in this world and I don't think it's fair that people are criticising her."

The singer then told a story about the sort of sad adventure Brangelina can relate to.

"About 20 years ago when my wife Ali and I went to Africa, shortly after Live Aid, a man who quite clearly loved his child came up to us and begged us to take him.

"It is heartbreaking but he asked us to take his child home with us because he couldn't feed him. This happens all the time in parts of Africa where unthinkable poverty means people simply can't feed their children."

Madonna is opening up about the problems she had in her recent adoption case.

She talked on the Today show with Meredith Vieria this morning about initially trying to give her recently -adopted baby's father money, so he could raise the boy himself. But when he turned her down. Madge said she took as a sign that she should adopt him herself.

The Material Girl told the host she "couldn't really understand" Yohane Banda's decision not to take her money, especially because he had "moved to another village and was kind of getting on with his life."

When he declined the money, Madonna said she regarded it as "my sign that ... it was my responsibility to look after [David Bana]."

Madonna also defended her decision to introduce David to Kabbalah nice and early.

"I believe in Jesus and I study kabbalah," she said. "So, I don't see why he can't, too."

A fair point. And it could be worse. The kid could look just like Bjork.

They're baaaaack! Or she is, anyway. He's here for the first time! Madonna brings 13-month-old David Banda on his first transcontinental journey to New York City on Sunday.

The singer, who is planning to adopt the Malawian child, a la Brangelina, is reportedly visiting town to promote her latest children's book, Too Good to Be True, and her upcoming televised concert special.

At times like this, we can only wonder, what would Borat say?

It's unlikely his movie will flop, but just in case, Borat has a back-up plan.

At Wednesday's London premiere of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, the bumbling, faux journalist told reporters about his grand plan.

Madonna, Cleavage

"I have come here with Bilak, my 11 year old son, his wife and their child, and we are hoping maybe to put some chocolate make-up on the child's face and sell him to Madonna. I am hoping that Madonna will be a very good father for it."

The Material Mother, meanwhile, was on Oprah Winfrey today, blaming the media for making such an issue out of her recent adoption. "

"Shame on you for discouraging other people from doing the same thing," she said.
Of course, if Mads doesn't want another child, Borat has other backup plans: Ice maker, gypsy catcher or animal sperm collector, specializing in camels.

The last of which, naturally, is how Linsday Lohan spends her Wednesday nights.

While reports have confirmed that Madonna recently adopted a baby boy, apparently that child's father isn't clear on how serious a procedure this is.

Yohame Banda says he didn't realize that he'd have to give up the baby to the pop queen forever when he consented to the adoption. Maybe he should've read more about Angelina Jolie in order to understand the process.

Madonna Mauls Jesus Luz

The 32-year-old Banda, a produce farmer from Malawi, told the Associated Press that he is just now understanding what happened to his son.

"If we were told that she wants to take the baby as her own we would not have consented, because I see no reason why I should give away my son," said Banda.

Hmmm ... so what exactly did he think was going to happen? This was some sort of loan, like Kevin Connolly was to Nicky Hilton?

Well, yes.

Banda says he thought that the biggest female pop star in the world was just going to take care of David as an orphanage would for several years, and then return him to his native village of Lipunga.

Madonna's Malawian lawyer had no comment.
