Everyone’s headed to rehab and Justin Timberlake won’t be left out. Last night during a performance in Zurich, Switzerland, the pop hunk started singing a few bars of Amy Winehouse‘s substance-friendly smash "Rehab." Now folks are suggesting the song, which J Timber changed to say "they tried to make her go to rehab," could have been a message to ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.
In other dreamy former boy bander news, Justin’s announced the first signing to his label, Tennman Records — 18-year-old YouTube phenom Esmee Denters. Through performing covers of Beyonce and Alicia Keys, Denters received 21 million hits on her YouTube postings.
OMG! Today we finally got to see the mug of BritBrit’s less-loved second child, Jayden James (we also get to see his mom in a string bikini, but just try to ignore that mess)! Only thing is, he looks EXACTLY
like the older one, Sean Preston. Snooze. I liked him better in Britney’s belly. Still, you can’t really dis a baby. He needs to be at least, like, 2 years old before it’s okay to pick on him. Which means…little Sean P. is almost fair game. So I won’t say anything about that ridiculous bathing suit wedgie – yet.
Some people think of Enrique Iglesias as primarily a singer. I think of him as primarily a penis-haver. For almost two years, Enrique’s down-below microphone has stuck out in public discourse much more than his music. "Hero" schmero — Enrique proves that if you really want to make an impact, you should talk about your him-hang.
The latest word from Enrique is that he’s "huge," but that’s a recent development. Enrique’s public peen powwow started in October 2005, when he "mock seriously" told a Houston Press reporter: "The next product I’m gonna put my name on is extra-small condoms. I can never find extra-small condoms, and I know it’s really embarrassing for people — you know, from experience. Hopefully people won’t be ashamed when I step forward." But it turned out that no one was more ashamed than Enrique.

Hilary Duff recently shared her thoughts on the turn Britney Spears‘ life has taken, saying Spears’ breakdown was "inevitable." Apparently, in between cutting pop music that’s neither popular nor musical and choosing a succession of film roles that’s the celluloid equivalent of walking through a house with dog crap on your shoe, Hilary is a behavioral expert. Who knew? Says Hils:
"Being Britney Spears must be difficult. She’s been told what to do since she was young. She’s not a bad mom – she’s a first-time mom, and because she’s famous, she’s expected never to make mistakes. The pressure she’s under would get to anyone. People need to leave her alone."
Hilary, who’s also been told what to do since she was young, says she fears for her own emotional well-being. "I’m not going to stop doing what I love because I’m afraid of breaking down," she adds. Atta girl, Hils. Keep doing what you’re doing! You’re gonna look so hot with a shaved head one day, when you’re a little older! [The Post Chronicle / Image credit: Getty]
Akon thinks he’s above the law. The Senegalese-American was excoriated in the press for tossing a fan off the stage at an upstate New York show last Sunday. Since video of the incident hit YouTube, there have been several other significant developements. First, when Akon threw the 15-year-old into the crowd, he hit a 26-year-old woman named Abby Rosa. She suffered a concussion and wants Akon to make a public apology. Second, the 15-year-old whom Akon threw has been identified by police because his mother called the cops. How embarrassing. Third, Akon’s lawyer, Ben Brafman (formerly counsel for Diddy and Michael Jackson), released a statement to the press in which he declared that Akon did nothing wrong. What do you think? Should Akon have picked on someone his own size?
In the past year of working at VH1 and covering its Celebreality slate, there’s no one that I wanted to talk to more than Charm School‘s Larissa. Unlike virtually everyone else who watches the show, I like Larissa — I don’t condone her behavior, but I admire her spunk, her sharp tongue and her commitment to making what those in the business call "good TV." I’ve talked to and even met her before, but I was really excited about discussing her turn on Charm School, which is either star-making or stomach-turning depending on what you look for in your Celebreality drama.
Imagine my disappointment when, after attempting to contact her for the past two weeks, her manager told me that Larissa was not interested in speaking about her time on the show. Imagine my despair when she chose to dish her dirt to another outlet.
As sad as this makes me, I still love her. She was eliminated from Charm School this week and I really can’t let her go without a tribute. Since I couldn’t post an interview with her, I did the next best thing: I made one up. Using sound bites from Charm School, I’ve constructed a completely hypothetical, not at all real conversation between Larissa and me. It’s after the jump — I only wish I could have experienced this level of attitude firsthand.
Well, that didn’t last long. What started as a 45 day sentence has been reduced to a dinky 72 hours in the slammer for Paris Hilton. The word is out that The Simple Life star has just been released from jail early this morning. Too bad – she was just starting to get used the delicious dinners.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department is holding a news conference later this morning to reveal why the blonde bombshell was allowed to break out early. What do YOU think? Should the heiress have done her full time or was the three day stint behind bars long enough?

After ending a Hollywood courtship, stars tend to go for a nice, hot rebound. Find someone way sexier than your ex, make out in public a few times, and move on. Unless you’re our girl Cameron Diaz. After getting tossed by Timberlake, she’s been spotted with magician Criss Angel, who looks less like a Houdini-type and more like the lead singer of a nineties nu-metal band.
Now Angel is gettin’ all creepy, and it’s not just cuz he’s struck by love. Turns out he likes the magic of free publicity too. At his latest stunt – trapping himself in a clear, cement covered box – he declared, "This is dedicated to my new girl. You know who you are. I’ll be thinking of you."
Poor little Jessica Simpson. Her movies flop, her sister has sliced
herself into a total hottie, and now John Mayer wants nothing to do
with her…again. The hot and cold pair seem to have frozen over for
good, after an attempt at reconciliation on a romantic Mexico getaway
that left Jess in tears.
It’s too bad Simpson doesn’t have a strong man who’ll stick by her
through thick and thin. You know, someone like her ex-husband. Nick moved on a while ago with knife-lover and reformed wild child
Vanessa Minnillo, and sources reveal that he’s standing by his
live-in lady, fiercely defending her formerly flamboyant ways.
Oh Jess. Hindsight really is 20-20. Even with that Lasik surgery.
Check out video here of a smiling Simpson leaving an LA restaurant last night.
