50 Cent is just a traditional guy who likes to woo ladies the old-fashioned way – taking them out to dinner surrounded by an entourage. Sound strange? Not to Ciara, who’s recently been seen getting cozy with the hip hop star. The two hit up the Brentwood Restaurant and Lounge in LA and got romantic at a table for two, as ten of 50′s pals and bodyguards protected the pair’s privacy from a second table close by. The group arrived and left in a flurry of pricey cars, including 50′s Lamborghini. Not a bad catch for the 21-year old singer, who worked with 50 (who is 10 years her senior) on her single "Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone." Looks like she was singing about her experience dating 50 – and his always present posse. When you’re worth millions upon millions of dollars, it can’t hurt having a little extra protection around, right? Let’s just hope he locks them out of his bedroom when there’s a lady between his sheets.

Lindsay Loves the Stripper Life
LiLo plays a stripper in her upcoming movie I Know Who Killed Me, and after working out on the pole for 3 hours a day, now claims to really respect the profession. Well, if that acting thing doesn’t work out… [Just Jared]
Beyonce: Hospital Visit with Fans
The caring diva visited two fans who were injured by pyrotechnics at her St. Louis concert Sunday night. When she says she loves her fans, she really means it. [People]
Paris: Caught in a Cloud of Smoke
She told Larry King that she’s never tried drugs, but it looks like that’s finally changed, after a spy spotted the heiress puffing on a joint outside LA hot spot Teddy’s. [NY Post]
Britney Spears is reportedly getting close to her bodyguard/boyfriend, and the two were spotted frolicking with her sons Sean and Jayden in her Malibu compound pool over the weekend. But that’s not even the most exciting Britney news to surface today. Rumors are floating around the web that she may actually be attempting that anticipated comeback with the release of a new single, supposedly titled "Get Back." Some alleged lyrics to the song:
so you’re the one
who want us
to get back
(you say lets get back together)(lets get back forever)
now its u the one
who’s followin me around
like a homeless dog
and you pray
(let’s get back together,let’s get back for better)
lets lets lets
This could all be just one great big rumor, but if not, we sure hope "homeless dog" sounds better in song than it looks on paper. This is like one step up from Brit’s usual attempts at putting her feelings into words. But still – if there’s anyway we can get old Britney back, we’ll take it. Get that girl a snake and some sequins!
Speaking to VH1 News at the L.A. premiere of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Daniel Radcliffe — that’s Harry Potter himself to you non-Hogwarts people — had an awkward encounter with our roving reporter. He explained that since he’s tiny and that Seth Green’s tiny too, the two were set to really hit it off. He probably meant that they were going to head off to the after-party together and fall in like with each other. Red carpets make celebrities say the funniest things!
Crooner Lionel Richie commented on daughter Nicole’s recent run-in with the law, and his response seems a little unorthodox for a parent, though perhaps not for someone who makes music videos featuring a blind woman who sculpts heads from clay. Lionel said this weekend:
"She’s just in an unfortunate situation. She keeps apologizing to me.I told her, ‘You’re
doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing to your father at this
Hm. So if driving the wrong way down the freeway high on Vicodin and marijuana is what you do to your dad while in your twenties, what’s next – smoking heroin while operating heavy machinery? And hasn’t Nicole- who admits to once being addicted to smack – probably done that already?
- Megan Fox thinks pot should be legalized. Drugs would, after all, make Transformers bearable. [CityRag]
- Daniel Radcliffe poses in a gay-vague leather vest for Details. For once, it’s a relief that he isn’t waving his wand around. [Dlisted]
- T.I. celebrates his album’s release at a party. There’s no word on whether or not he bickered with his baby mama, which is a shame, since I’m dying to use the headline "T.I. vs. T.I.N.Y." [Sandra Rose]
- Jack Nicholson sports major man-boobs while lounging on a boat. At least now he doesn’t have to leave the house when he wants to womanize. [Best Week Ever]
Jessica Simpson is supposedly getting her own sloppy seconds, as she’s rumored to be back with comedian Dane Cook (pictured together in 2006, right). They made some unfunny movie together last year and apparently got romantic on the set, and after a year apart and some John Mayer booty calls, Jess is back in the funny man’s beefy arms. The two recently took in a Prince concert at Teddy’s in LA, and like everyone else in Hollywood, they canoodled!!!
Two years ago, a rumor regarding a gropefest between Bruce Willis and Lindsay Lohan circulated. Bruce is just now getting around to denying it (it took Linds but a few days). Or maybe he’s complaining about having to deny it repeatedly. Whatever. Bruce doth protests:
"I don’t pay attention to the gossip anymore. I don’t look at it or let it in my house. We could go down to a newsstand right now and find five stupid things that are written about me, but I just don’t care. I stopped fighting it when I was a young kid and I was trying to find my way, just flailing wildly, figuring out how to handle fame. Setting the record straight…I couldn’t care less. Because no matter how many times I tell you I had nothing to do with Lindsay Lohan and never laid a finger on her – she just hung out with my younger daughter Tallulah for a minute – it’s still gonna be set in stone. It’s out of my control."
Notice how he says he didn’t lay a finger on her, but he says nothing about his tongue or penis. You being coy, there Brucie?
In all seriousness, it’s probably better to turn a deaf ear to gossip if it’s getting you down. Brad Pitt, on the other hand, seems to be taking a more proactive approach: Brad’s production company has purchased the film rights to gossip queen Jeannette Walls‘ Glass Castle, effectively funding Jeannette’s departure from the buzz game (her departure from her post at MSNBC is reportedly imminent). That’s Brad for you: halting gossip one talker at a time. Once an activist, always an activist. [Mirror.co.uk / Image credit: Getty]
Life in Hollywood just seems to be all drama, drama, drama. With a little bit of drama sprinkled on top. And a side of drama. Take the latest feud to come out of La La Land, between Spencer Pratt, the uber-cocky "fiance" of Hills star Heidi Montag and Joel Madden, Good Charlotte rocker, human canvas, and Nicole Richie‘s baby daddy. A battle broke out when the two couples ran into each other while lunching at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday. Spencer tells In Touch Weekly: "I was sitting having a quiet lunch with Heidi when Nicole walked in and started pointing at me and then whispering to
Joel. He storms over and starts shouting, ‘You’ve been talking s**t
about my girl’…Then he started screaming and calling
The mag also reports that Nic and Joel were then escorted out of the joint. Pratt seems to think that Madden freaked because he once called Nicole – who also happens to be his pal Brody Jenner’s ex – a "skinny bitch" in an interview (In case you were keeping track: Brody dated Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari, then Nicole, followed by Cavallari’s rival and Heidi’s co-star, Lauren Conrad. His latest conquest is rumored to be none other than Joel’s ex Hilary Duff. Nauseaus yet?). Here’s a better guess – maybe Joel is a big fan of The Hills and wasn’t to keen on all the flirting Spencer was out doing behind Heidi’s back. Canoodle with Playboy models and Joel Madden’s gonna give you a smackdown!
