Rumour: Cher: "Britney & J Lo are Ho's"

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Cher has jokingly called Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez ‘ho’s’.

The pop icon was appearing at Auckland’s North Shore stadium in New Zealand in front of 20,000 fans when she launched an attack on her younger rivals.

She is currently undertaking the final leg of her Living Proof farewell tour, which is now into its third year.

Cher said: “I’m not going to give up show business but I’m going to give up touring because… there are all of these young girls coming out like Britney and J.Lo.”

In response to boos from the crowd, she reportedly joked: “I know. They are ho’s, aren’t they?”

She continued: “My boobs would be down to my kneecaps and I would be toothless… So I don’t think it is really a good idea [to keep touring].”

Cher plays her final show at the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles on April 30.

Britney's In The Zone Album To Be Released As A DualDisc In April 2005

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Zomba Records and Jive announce a DualDisc for favourite, Bowling for Soup. The DualDisc is of their A Hangover You Don’t Deserve. This is scheduled for April 19. And here’s a few more for you. J Records will issue one for Gavin DeGraw of his Chariot album. That is also expected on April 19. More? RCA will release Kasabian’s Kasabian titled album on DualDisc and Kings of Leon’s Aha Shake Heartbreak (Ahh, good old fashioned opportunism. Could this DualDisc treatment be because of the U2 tour invite and thus lots of exposure? hmmmm). Both of those RCA DualDiscs are scheduled for April 26. J Records will street Turning Point from Mario in DualDisc format on April 19. Again, Zomba and Jive Records will reissue Britney Spears’ In the Zone on DualDisc and Three Days Grace’s self-titled album, also on DualDisc, both scheduled for April 19. That’s a lot of new upcoming DualDisc releases.

DualDisc is a two-sided disc made up of a CD on one side and a DVD on the other. In addition to a full album on the CD side, the DVD side provides the full album in enhanced sound (such as Surround Sound and/or DVD-Audio or LPCM stereo), and also includes a wide range of special features such as music videos, interviews, photo galleries, web links, concert footage and lyrics.

Us Weekly Respond To Britney's Press Release

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Besides the obvious–fame, fortune, obsessive fans, etc.–the stars share a strong distaste for Us Weekly.

Both A-listers have lashed out at the glossy in recent days over spreads awarding them unwanted attention.

Spears’ beef with Us began when the mag published unauthorized photos of her honeymoon with hubby, Kevin Federline–or K. Fed, as he’s been rechristened in the press–in its Feb. 28 issue.

The pop diva said she was “disturbed” to see the spread featuring pics from her “private honeymoon album,” which depicted the newlyweds soaking up intimate moments at the Fijian resort where they vacationed.

“Kevin and I chose a resort location where we were promised absolute privacy and seclusion. Unfortunately, staff members took photographs of us, which we allowed them to take once we were assured they were being taken only for private use in a scrapbook they gave us as a souvenir of our honeymoon,” a distressed Spears said in a statement.

“Other magazines, including the Star, contacted us when presented with these photographs and refused to publish them. Kevin and I thank those other magazines for respecting our rights of privacy.”

It’s possible that the higher-ups at Us Weekly may have a wee beef with Spears as well.

In a recent sitdown with Details magazine for a cover story on the new and improved K. Fed (not a dancer, not yet an A-lister), Spears didn’t bother to pull any punches while giving her opinion on the publication.

“I need to create my own magazine,” the “Toxic” singer announced. “People are just way too obsessed with celebrity. Look at Us Weekly. I think the same guy who does Rolling Stone does Us Weekly. He’s this big old fat man.”

(Note: Jann Wenner is the publisher of both Us Weekly and Rolling Stone.)

For the record, Us agrees with Spears that she should start her own magazine.

In response to Spears’ statement regarding the publication of her honeymoon pics, the mag indicated that the pop tart has been less than reclusive in the past.

“Coming from a celebrity who sold pictures of both her wedding and her stepdaughter, it’s unlikely the issue here is privacy,” an Us Weekly spokesperson said in a statement.

“Could it be that Britney is seeing red after not seeing the green from these photos? Britney Spears should start a magazine if she’d like to dictate her own coverage.”

About No Us Weekly Scans

I have decided not to post the Us Weekly scans to respect Britney’s privacy. I have chosen to post one picture, because Britney and Kevin look so good together and I think this is one of their best photos as a couple. You can view the scans at our affiliates but we won’t be posting them..
