The animal rights organization PETA has asked Britney Spears, notorious fur-lover and tiny dog hoarder, to come work at their headquarters for a day as a receptionist. Apparently her blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gig on How I Met Your Mother has inspired PETA head Ingrid Newkirk to bury the hatchet with the pop star. In an open letter published on the group’s blog, she writes:
“After seeing your excellent performance on How I Met Your Mother, PETA would like to offer you a real job as a receptionist. It could be for as little as an hour, and you would see—from the inside—why we are so concerned about issues like fur and homeless dogs and cats. As a “thank you” for your willingness to learn and help, we would donate $1,000 to a children’s charity.”
Chill out PETA. Brit isn’t ever going to “tell people about the misery that foxes, chinchillas, and other animals suffer on fur farms,” because her wardrobe depends on that misery! And without fur, what would cover up her stained dresses and her nipple slips? Seriously, what is more important – the life of innocent animals or the hiding of Brit’s vag behind a fur coat?! Yeah, we thought so.

She-Pratt has it all -
Bad fashion taste, bad brother.
No wonder she’s mean.
Why won’t you hug me?
Straight up truth: Brody Jenner smells
Fake? Real? We can’t tell.
Heidi’s robot eyes can’t cry.
Is Whit’s job a sham?
Lo. Sweet, skanky Lo.
You deserve your own show, girl.
We love all your ish.
50 Cent can’t seem to make up his mind. The rapper’s brain, apparently, is a microcosm of the Democratic Party’s nomination process. MTV News reports that 50 was originally for Hillary Clinton, telling Fox News, “I just think she’d do a good job. There’s nothing bad about Obama in my eyes either, but I just think Hillary would be my choice.” But after listening to Obama’s speech on race, the MC changed his tune: “He hit me with that he-just-got-done- watching-Malcolm X, and I swear to God, I’m like, ‘Yo, Obama!’ . . . I’m Obama to the end now, baby!”
Well, as S.E. Hinton says, that was then, this is now. These days, 50 is more confused. “To be honest, I haven’t been following that anymore,” he told MTV News. “I lost my interest. I listened to some of the debate and things that they were saying, and I just got lost in everything that was going on . . . . Don’t look for my vote, for me to determine nothing on that. Just say, ’50 Cent, he don’t know, so don’t ask Fiddy.’” He continued, “I just think there’s people that might not be ready for an African-American president. It’ll be an issue, believe it or not.”
Those of you who remember how effectively the Republican smear campaign worked against John Kerry — another notable flip-flopper — must be hoping 50 sticks to music. After all, he already lost that one race to Kanye West. Looks like somebody’s just not fit for politics.

Reality stars have it tough, especially when you’re on the self-described “Z List.” On Saturday night, Adrianne Curry spent four hours on a premiere she couldn’t even get into. According to the My Fair Brady star’s blog, Curry went all out for her first major motion picture premiere, for Nim’s Island. After spending two hours on her makeup — and some more time in traffic — the Brady mate got shut down by security. “I was too damn dressed up to not stick out like a sore thumb,” Curry said as to why she didn’t wait around, hoping her publicist or security could get her in. Fortunately, Adrianne was able to return home with little incident, and at least some of her pride in tact, ending her post with this self-aware statement: “With everything going on in the world, this is pretty damn minor. However, it still sucks ass.”
This might be a blessing in disguise for Curry, as the last time she appeared on the red carpet, she set off a firestorm of controversy over whether or not she was pregnant…
Why are Academy Award winners cut off in mid-sentence during their acceptance speeches? It’s probably because they’re as exciting as someone reading who begat whom from the Bible. As dwindling ratings suggest, both the Oscars and the Grammys are boring the pants off of their viewers. Not so the Kids’ Choice Awards, which, in recent years, has bucked the trend of declining ratings for awards shows.
The stars may have used last night’s 2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards as a marketing tool, but at least they show up with their guards down and their funniest clown faces on. Maybe children bring out the goofiest in them. Whatever the reason, the juxtapositions below may indicate that stars have more fun at Kids’ Choice than at more serious, staid events.

Looks like the halcyon days of John Varvatos camaraderie are over. The increasingly internecine relationship between Velvet Revolver and their red-headed lead singer, Scott Weiland, has come to a breaking point. Speaking to the NME, Slash explained that “There will be a third album . . . . We don’t know how or when but the core four guys will continue.” This comes after Weiland announced that the band might never tour again, and Velvet Revolver’s subsequent in-fighting hit the Internet. Idolator has a list of replacements for Slash and company (Rod Stewart! Yeah!), and, in not-unrelated news, Weiland is heading up the Stone Temple Pilots reunion tour this summer. Yay. [Ed.: Yay?]
Elsewise, Dr. Pepper issued a challenge last week to reclusive former Velvet Revolver singer Axl Rose, explaining that the soft-drink company would give a free can of Dr. Pepper to every American (with the exception of guitarists Buckethead and Slash), should Guns N’ Roses’ long-delayed, Howard Hughes-soap-opera-esque album Chinese Democracy see the light of day in 2008. Denying any involvement in the promotion, Axl explained that he found the offer flattering and that he’d share his fizzy beverage with Buckethead. Ouch, right? But also whatever. Look, Axl, if Velvet Revolver is missing a lead singer, we can’t think of another redhead who qualifies better than you. Can no one get Guns N’ Roses — the real Guns N’ Roses — back together? Please? We have an inkling that people would rather see even the worst, loosest, 20-minute-long version of “Coma” as played by Axl, Slash, Duff, Matt and that other guy than a tight “Interstate Love Song” performed by Weiland, the DeLeo brothers and that other guy. Just an inkling, though.
