Here are a couple pics of Britney Spears as she made her arrival in the UK last night after completing her successful appearance on Star Academy in Paris, France yesterday … behold:
As y’all are WELL aware by now, Britney is performing LIVE on the UK competitive reality program X-Factor tonight and is RUMORED to be making a surprise appearance at G-A-Y nightclub in London afterward. The official G-A-Y website is advertising that tonight is Britney Night at the club but they make no mention that she will actually appear. Whether or not Brit Brit makes an appearance at the club after her appearance on X-Factor, it’s gonna be a hot time in Londontown tonight nonetheless. It’s unclear just how long Britney and her crew will be staying in the UK but we do know that they will make their way to NYC ahead of her live performance on Good Morning America Tuesday morning. And the promo tour just keeps on rolling …

Les Beckhams — hubby/daddy David & wifey/mother Victoria and sons Brooklyn, Romeo & Cruz — continued to enjoy all the things that NYC has to offer this week as the family ventured out into the city on Day 3 of their Thanksgiving Vacay to the Big Apple. Yesterday, the family did a bit of shopping together (making a special trip to a candy shop) before making their way last night to do a bit of bowling together. Vicki B. managed to spend part of her day with her family but had to leave them midway thru the day to do some investigating (which is why she was wearing her shockingly white private investigator’s ensemble):
Yeah, I don’t really get VB‘s getup but the woman does take bold fashion risks with the way she dresses. It’s unclear just how much longer the family is planning to stay in the city (it is also unclear what attractions are left for them to visit) but I must admit that I do like the idea of the Beckham Bunch just aimlessly wandering the streets of New York City. Incidentally, TomKat was along with the Beckhams for many of yesterday’s activities but I’m kinda done looking at them. I don’t think anyone out there will mind that they’ve been omitted, right? ;)

Britney Spears was the featured performer on the French competitive reality TV program Star Academy last night and she managed to bring the house down! Performing her single Womanizer in front of a packed house of rabid French fans, Britney performed the second of three live appearances that she has scheduled in Europe this week (the first was in Germany on Thursday night, the last will be in the UK tonight). Here are a few screencaps from her live performance last night:
Britney Spears wowed French fans on TV on Friday when she performed her new hit Womanizer on talent show Star Academy. A night after making her first major comeback performance since the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards – at the 2008 Bambi Awards in Germany – Spears was in Paris for her TV turn. Wearing a flashy red corset dress, she sent fans wild with a lip-synced performance. Spears will complete her whistle-stop tour on Saturday night when she performs on TV talent show The X Factor.
Two down, one more to go. Last night’s performance in France was very much like the one she gave in Germany except for the obvs costume change and amped up energy level. The more stoic crowd in Germany make Brit‘s performance feel more stunted … last night’s raucous crowd gave her the electricity she needed to turn in a more vibrant performance. I suspect that tonight’s performance on X-Factor will feature the same Womanizer routine, possibly with yet another costume change.

Ooh La La!
Here are a few pics of Britney Spears making a stunning and grand exit from the Plaza Athénée in Paris, France today as she made her way to the television studio where the French program Star Academy is filmed:
Homegirl looks très magnifique, y’all! I understand that Star Academy is airing RIGHT NOW in France so it may take some time before her performance makes its way to the Internets. I have complete faith that my girl is gonna deliver another great live performance today … haters be damned, our dear Britney Spears is back. Click HERE to watch Star Academy LIVE online right now.

Not as exciting as the Beckham-TomKat Bunch but ...
16-year old Miley Cyrus, who participated in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC yesterday, got a jump start on her Xmas shopping this week by hittin’ up the big stores on 5th Ave. in Manhattan this week … and she brought along her 20-year old boytoy/BFF Justin Gaston along with her … here are a few pics:
I suppose I could make a joke about the danger of traveling across state lines with a minor but since the Cyrus parents were along for the ride, well, I guess the joke wouldn’t really work. I understand that the Cyrus family and Justin Gaston all stayed at the same hotel … which makes me wonder what the sleeping arrangements were. I mean, I’m guessing that Justin didn’t actually have to pay for his hotel room but did he get a room all to himself or did he have to shack up with any particular member of the Cyrus family? I get that Miley likes to say that she and Justin are “just friends” but you gotta wonder how close these “friends” really are — and how much support they get from her parents. It’s all still very creepy to me but … that’s showbiz, I guess.

The Bambi Awards & the 'Rolling Stone' magazine shoot
BritneySpears.com has been updated today with a few very fun behind-the-scenes photos of our dear Britney Spears preparing for her big performance at the Bambi Awards in Germany last night as well as some behind-the-scenes pics from the set of her Rolling Stone magazine photoshoot. First up, here is a very cute pic of Britney with her crew (including papa Jamie Spears, her manager Larry Rudolph, her personal assistant Brett and some dude named Jeff) hanging out at their hotel in Germany:
Aww … they look so cute but also so cold. Here are a few pics that have been posted on Britney‘s official website from the Bambi Awards last night:
Gotta love the prayer circle. Looks like the man above (or wherever) was paying attention to her pleas of support ;) After the jump, check out a few pics that were snapped on the set of her Rolling Stone magazine photoshoot … More »
Just can't get enough
Well, well now … lookie here … Sienna Miller spent part of her day yesterday doing a bit of solo grocery shopping all by her lonesome. Since we heard that she broke up with her married lover Balthazar Getty earlier this month, Sienna has been keeping to herself being very careful not to be seen with anyone of a romantic nature … especially NOT the still-married Balthazar Getty:
But what’s this? New photos of Sienna and Balthazar making their way out of the very same club in London last night? Could it be that the couple have reunited at last?
Or is it more likely that the couple never broke up in the first place. Afterall, it was Sienna who told US Weekly magazine that she was “single” … perhaps she was just lying to throw folks off their trail? After the jump, check out a pic of the happy couple together again as they were caught exiting a restaurant together in London earlier this week … More »
... and Fam
Gwen Stefani and hubby Gavin Rossdale took their children Kingston James McGregor and Zuma Nesta Rock for a bit of afternoon playtime at their local neighborhood park yesterday before they got going with all the Thanksgiving Dinner eats. Here are a few pics of Gwen with her littlest child Zuma Nesta at the park yesterday where the little guy was showing off some of his favorite facial expressions:
The little dude looks like he’s been hittin’ the bottle a wee bit too much in the third pic (and I’m talking the bottle of Jack Daniels rather than the milk bottle) but is absolutely adorable in all of the other pics. It looks like the fam is having a great time in the group shot … clearly Gwen and Gavin enjoy spending as much quality time with their children as possible. So while the servants or whoever were home preparing the Thanksgiving feast, the family was able to spend part of their day with one another at the neighborhood park. So precious! It looks like little Zuma Nesta had himself a great first Thanksgiving with his family.

Central Park, A Carriage Ride, A Circus -- Oh My!
Yesterday we saw pics of Les Beckhams (David and Victoria along with their children Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz) out and about with TomKat (Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their possibly real daughter Suri Holmes-Cruise) at various places around NYC. Today, we get to see more pics of the family friends (including Tom‘s adopted children Isabella and Connor with former wife Nicole Kidman) enjoying other parts of the Big Apple in full display of any camera within a 10 mile radius. First up, the families made their way en masse to Central Park:
But soon after they arrived, the ladies in the group decided that they were tired of walking and decided to hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a little ride:
Clearly, Vicki B. and her middle child Romeo were not impressed. Incidentally, I do realize that Romeo Beckham isn’t really one of the “ladies” but, lets be honest here, the little lad is the closest thing that VB has to a daughter so there you have it.
After the carriage ride bored them to tears, the families made their way to the Big Apple Circus for a little family fun …
… complete with photo op afterward. Lord … I realize that these people are insanely famous and that they are apt to drawn a massive crowd of onlookers wherever they go but I would’ve expected the families to spend at least part of their day out of the public eye perhaps enjoying one another’s company. In any event, it appears that the Beckham-TomKat Bunch were doing their best to get the most out of this Thanksgiving holiday. While they all look entirely miserable, I do hope that they were able to enjoy their time together and be thankful for the wealth and privilege they are all able to enjoy.

"Not only as a phoenix but as a bird of paradise"
Britney Spears was one of the featured performers at the 60th Annual Bambi Awards in Offenburg, Germany last night and, by pretty much all accounts, managed to pull off not only a successful live performance but a wholly entertaining one as well. Performing her hit single Womanizer, Britney turned the stage at the Bambi Awards into her own three-ring circus. Additionally, our dear Britney was honored, by trophy presenter Karl Lagerfeld, with an award of her own being named the Best International Popstar. Here are a few screencaps from Britney‘s performance last night:
Ahead of her highly anticipated visit to London this weekend, Britney Spears has cemented her comeback with a knockout performance at the 60th annual Bambi Awards in Germany. The superstar performed alongside Pink and Leona at the star studded bash, where there was a random array of award recipients including Lewis Hamilton and Meg Ryan. Britters collected an award herself for Best International Popstar and designer Karl Lagerfield was gushing when he presented the star with her award. He told her “I admire you, not only for your art but also for your energy, for your comeback not only as a phoenix but as a bird of paradise. And it’s great.” Britney’s extravagant circus inspired performance was a hit with the crowd with the superstar looking back to best in a madonna-esque outfit Earlier this week it was confirmed Spears will play two concerts at the O2 in London next June as part of her forthcoming world tour.
Woot! She looked great! The performance was well executed, well staged and perfectly timed … stage one of her European promo tour went off without a hitch. Collecting another award for her accomplishments was just the icing on the cake. Lagerfeld is right in saying that Britney is more than just a phoenix rising from the ashes … she has always been so much more than that. And it was so nice of Madonna to lend her that outfit to wear ;) After the jump, check out a few more photos of her performance, a few photos of Britney in the press room posing with her trophy and (prolly what you’re really interested in seeing) video of Britney‘s full performance … More »
