Earlier today we saw the first Candie’s Spring/Summer ’10 campaign poster which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz and features spokesmodel Britney Spears but that photo didn’t really wow me … which is why these newly surfaced outtake photos from a photoshoot that Britney did with photographer Mark Liddell came along at just the perfect time … check ‘em out:
She looks fantastic, these photos are great!! Mark Liddell is an excellent photographer. In fact, IMHO, these outtakes are far superior to the photos that were chosen as the official promo photos used to promote her album Circus. While the Leibovitz photo may not be all that, at least we have this batch of photos to make up for the lackluster Candie’s photo. Aren’t these pics awesome?

In late December we learned that adidas is launching a new Originals Collection based on the world of Star Wars and earlier today, Snoop Dogg joined Darth Vader and his minions of the Empire in NYC to officially launch the collection of clothing and footwear. Here are a few photos from the event in Times Square earlier today:
Snoop Dogg marched through Times Square with Darth Vader and a bunch of Stormtroopers earlier today. Because what else are you going to come up with when you have a big bag of chronic and are pondering a marketing plan for a Star Wars-based footwear/clothing collection? Later in the day Racked reported that Snoops Troops made it to the Adidas store in SoHo… and R2D2 even made a cameo!
I am SO in love with this collection of Star Wars kicks from adidas … and I think it is the bomb dizzle that Snoop D-O Double G has signed on to help promote the collection. Imma hafta get my izzle bizzle in gizzle, my nizzles and buy up these shoes before they sell the fizzle out. Okay, I’ll stop now … but still, Snoop + Darth = Too Much Awesome.

Kevin Federline, who recently claimed that it was depression that led to his sudden weight gain (which came along right at the perfect time for him to lose all that weight on the VH1 reality TV series Celebrity Fit Club), sat down to talk with Entertainment Tonight about his obesity and, of course, his new TV show. Interestingly enough, in this new interview, K-Fed blames his weight gain on “getting older” and makes no mention of the “depression” he spoke of before:
Back when Kevin Federline was dating and then married to Britney Spears, he was known as K-Fed. More recently, he ballooned up to more than 240 pounds and was meanly re-nicknamed K-Fat. Now the former dancer talks to ET’s Kevin Frazier about turning his life around with the help of VH1′s “Celebrity Fit Club.” “I went through a lot of things and I definitely say that those things contributed to me gaining weight for sure,” says Federline, referring to all the media scrutiny he underwent as a result of his much-publicized split from ex-wife Britney Spears. Federline says that when he saw the much-published photo of himself on the golf course, at first he thought it had been altered. “When I saw this picture, I did not think that I was that big,” he said. “I thought it was Photoshopped. You know? And, then I realized that I was just letting myself go.” Federline attributes his weight gain to getting older and his metabolism slowing down, not dancing anymore and his love for pizza and pasta. So when the call came from “Celebrity Fit Club,” he recognized it as a great way to shed the pounds — and his kids were a big part of that decision. “I still ran around with them a little bit but not as much as I do now,” Federline says. “It was easier to eat more when they were younger because they weren’t as active. Now all of them want to play sports, hit the T-ball and run around the backyard and ride bikes. I could barely make it up the hill on the side of my house.”
I knew it … the “depression” bullshizz never sounded right to me. Federline didn’t start putting on weight until years after his divorce from Britney and after he was happily “in love” with current girlfriend Victoria Prince. It’s kinda gross to think that he would just put on weight so that he could get paid to lose it all over again on national TV. But, I suppose, at least he’s working … that’s the only upside of this idiotic tale. After the jump, if you so desire, you can watch video of K-Fed talking about his obesity and his new TV show after the jump … More »

Great news here in our humble home … David’s older siblings are visiting this weekend to celebrate his brother Aram’s birthday!! Lara arrives later this afternoon and Aram arrives tomorrow and then we officially get the party started!! It will be fantastic to have David and his siblings together here in our SoCal home:
Yes, I’m going to make them all sleep in the same bed just like this :) We’ve got a few fun things planned for the weekend, including a very fun sporting event. No, not the SuperBowl … we are going to see the Detroit Red Wings play the LA Kings at the Staples Center on Saturday afternoon … it shall be a blast :)
For the most part, the weekend’s activities will be up to the Hauslaibs, who will outnumber me, but I’m really looking forward to going along for the ride.
Earlier today we saw photos of Taylor Lautner rooting for the LA Lakers at the Staples Center last night but he wasn’t the only celeb in the hiz sitting courtside — long-time lovers Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens were also at last night’s game to cheer on the Lakers … oh, and to show the world how much in lurve they still are:
You gotta give it up to Zanessa for staying together for so long. These two have been an item for years now and they still look as much in love as they have from day one. I have a pretty good appreciation for their enduring relationship because David and I are about to celebrate our 4 year anniversary together later on this month. I have nothing but respect for young lovers who value a loving commitment to one another and are able to successfully weather the difficulties that undoubtedly pop up along the way. It warms the coldest cockles of my heart to see Zanessa so in love after all these years. Here’s to many more years of happy togetherness for these two :)

On the eve of his upcoming 1-year prison sentence for illegal weapons possession, rapper Lil’ Wayne (née Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) is featured on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. In his coverstory interview, Wayne confesses that it is his belief that God wants him in prison … tho, I suspect the authorities who arrested, prosecuted, convicted and sentenced him prolly want him in prison, too. Here is Lil’ Wayne‘s RS coverphoto along with some excerpts from his interview:
Lil Wayne is constantly moving. But the hyperactive hip-hop star will find himself suddenly sedentary come Tuesday, when he has to report to prison to serve a yearlong sentence for gun possession. “I don’t like to stop,” Wayne, 27, tells Rolling Stone. “I believe you stop when you die.” He says his prison term is God’s will for him and everything happens for a reason. Wayne’s felony charge came after a July 2007 arrest in New York City, when police found a .40-caliber handgun in his tour bus. Initially Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., pleaded not guilty – but in October, he changed his plea to guilty in exchange for a reduced 12-month sentence. But before he finds himself waking up behind bars at New York’s Rikers Island, Wayne is packing in video shoots, recording sessions of songs from The Carter IV and time with his family. He says he’s avoiding getting tips on prison life. “This is Lil Wayne going to jail,” he says. “Nobody I can talk to can tell me what that’s like. I just say I’m looking forward to it.”
I’m not a Lil’ Wayne fan by any means but I can appreciate that he is a very talented, hugely popular artist and I find it wholly fascinating that the fact that he is going to prison for weapons possession will likely make him an even bigger star. Celebs these days can practically get away with murder and still enjoy much success afterward whereas celebs of the past could not. The old adage there’s no such thing as bad press rings more true today than ever before. I’m pretty sure Wayne‘s plan is to get as much work done as possible before he goes to prison, then turn his prison experience into more work which will — in turn — prove a huge, successful boon later on down the road. It’s nuts, y’all … but these days, I guess it’s just the way the game is played.

Things have been going very well for Betty White these days … not only did she just celebrate her 88th birthday but was she just honored at the Screen Actors Guild Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award AND she also has the honor of being in the first commercial shown during the SuperBowl this coming Sunday. Not too shabby, huh? Fellow Golden Girl Rue McClanahan is having a bit rougher of a time lately, as you may recall she is currently recovering from a recent stroke. But, don’t expect Betty to put on the kid gloves where Rue is concerned, Ms. White is adamant about becoming the last Golden Girl left standing and she wants Rue to know it:
Betty White is serious about being the final Golden Girl standing. After the deaths of Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur, Betty and actress Rue McClanahan are the last surviving stars of the beloved television sitcom The Golden Girls. Earlier this year, Rue, 75, suffered a stroke that has kept her hospitalized for weeks. Naturally, 88-year-old pal Betty was there to offer her well wishes for a speedy recovery; she sent Rue a heartfelt message which read: “Dear Rue, I hope you hurry up and die so I can be the last Golden Girl left. NOT KIDDING!” But don’t worry, Rue thought the card was hilarious! Apparently “Drop Dead” is a term of endearment between these two.
I love the Golden Girls ladies more than anything but this is sick and wrong. LOL! I suppose when good friends reach advanced age, they need to really go for the jugular when they razz one another. It pains me to think of Rue in recovery but it sounds like this “drop dead” joke between her and Betty is a dear joke that is very likely good for her soul. I’m hoping for the day, hopefully soon, when we learn of Rue‘s full recovery so that she can dish the jokes back Betty‘s way. It’s nice to know that these older gals still have the zest of life. I want them both to live forever.
