Britney Spears concert up in smoke

Britney Spears’ show was ground to a halt after only three songs into her Vancouver concert due to excess smoke and poor ventilation in the building.

An announcer said: “The building is awfully smoky. It’s become uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers, including Ms. Spears.

“Please extinguish all cigarettes.”

After 30-minutes the singer returned to finish her set and ended the show by telling the audience, “Don’t smoke weed. Rock out with your cocks out. Peace, motherfuckers!”

That Britney, always full of virtue.

Indiana Jones and the giant hippo

Happy HIPPO!!!

What a nice family day out.

Harrison Ford and fiancé Calista Flockhart took their son Liam to the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington earlier this week where they came face to face with a hungry, hungry hippo.

The herbiviore hippopotamus opened wide as the 66-year-old actor threw green-beans into the happening hippos jaw.

The hippo (fittingly) named Happy was definitely one happy looking hippo that day.

*The Squealer fully acknowledges that this is a terrible piece of journalism but we don’t care because we have a big thing for hippos, especially the hungry kind.

Ashlee Simpson stuck at home while Pete Wentz parties

What happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas, well in Pete Wentz case anyway.

Following a sell-out show in Sin City, the Fall Out Boy star got down with some scantily clad strippers and partied like a rock star into the early hours.

“Everybody was going absolutely crazy,” an eyewitness tells Star.

“People were even drunkenly playing makeshift Slip ‘n’ Slide with a mat and lubricant and Pete was in great spirits. He was dancing and singing along to his band’s own songs, grinding up against the dancers.”

At one point he was “dancing on a pool table with the girls” the party-goer adds.

And while this drunken debauchery was going on what was Ashlee Simpson doing?

The bassist’s wife was at home posting photos of the couples four-month-old baby Bronx Mowgli on networking website Twitter and writing heartfelt messages to her man.

The singer tweeted: “Bx and I miss you so much,”

“We are only the 2 amigo’s without you. Last night I wanted a snuggle fest with you. Miss you mucho.”

The singer returned to Los Angeles minus Wentz, after attending the bands gig earlier in the day.

On parting with her hubby, she twittered: “I am beyond sad to leave my love… My heart is breaking as we drive home.”

“I need my hubs.”

Pete Wentz was clearly heart-broken too.

What woman wouldn’t want to see their their fella frolicking with strippers while she’s home alone looking after the baby.

rihanna-kanye

Yet more celebrities adding perfumist to their list of credentials.

Rihanna and Kanye West are set to launch their own fragrance lines in 2010.

The musicians have signed a deal with their mentor Jay-Z to endorse scents for his company Iconic Fragrances, of which is collaborating with Parlux Fragrances Inc.

Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z said: “We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Parlux and their management team in the launch of these dynamic new brands.”

“This venture will take what is already a successful franchise at Parlux to a new level.”

In the past, Parlux has teamed up with Queen Latifah, Marc Ekco and Jessica Simpson.

Final negotiations are also being made for the rapper to contribute a fragrance himself as well as one from an unnamed “well-established” female artist (Beyoncé anyone?).

Anything Hova touches turns into gold and with Ri-Ri and Kayne involved in the pipeline, i’m just gonna go ahead and assume the Jigga man thinks the credit crunch is a type of plastic-tasting cereal.

jaime waylett

Jaime Waylett, best known for playing wizard bully Vincent Crabbe in the Harry Potter films, was arrested last Thursday on suspicion of possessing cannabis.

Police discovered the stash after pulling over the vehicle the 19-year-old was driving, along with an unidentified friend.

“The car was searched and officers found eight bags of a substance believed to be cannabis,” a spokesperson for the police said.

A further bust in the actor’s Camden home, which he shares with his mother and siblings, led to the discovery of additional narcotics.

“Officers found a number of plants believed to be cannabis plants and equipment for cultivation. Both men have been bailed until July pending further inquiries and tests on the substances.”

Waylett evidently puts the the Pothead in Harry Potter.

Oh come on, that was way too easy.

Russell Brand has declared war on Justice Minister and Lord Chancellor Jack Straw via his page on networking site Twitter.

Responding to calls from the former Foreign Minister that the comedian and Jonathan Ross should pay the BBC’s £150,000 Manuelgate fine, the funny-man retaliated by demanding Straw pay back the £7billion he squandered on the Iraq war.”

He added: “No wonder his son has to toke himself to sleep.”

In relation to an incident in 1997 where Mr Straw’s son William was caught smoking and selling cannabis.

Ouch! Low-blow from Russell, but point made. 

Touché sir.

Gwyneth Paltrow blasted for ignorance

gwyneth-paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow has been accused by a leading scientist of “spouting loopy nonsense” after claiming shampoo causes cancer in babies.

The actress, 36, posted on her website ‘Goop’ that she was “seized with fear” at learning that many household items, including toys, carpets and cleaning products provided risk to young infants.

But Hugh Pennington, Emeritus Professor of bacteriology at Aberdeen University said: “It annoys me when celebrities use their position to spout nonsense.

“They have a perfect right to their views, even if they are loopy.

“But shampoo is perfectly safe – unless you drink it in large quantities.”

Sounds like Gwynnie has drunk one too many bottles of the soapy stuff.

Things are starting to get ugly.

Are Samantha Ronson’s family pursuing a restraining order against Lindsay Lohan?

According to Us Weekly magazine, the DJ’s mother, Ann Dexter-Jones and twin sister, designer Charlotte Ronson made a visit to the Beverly Hills Police Department on Monday to look into filing the injunction.

“She does these things to get attention,” Charlotte told a clerk.

“She was trying to get into my party this weekend, we had to tell security to keep her out.

“Then she booked a room at the Chateau Marmont. Her room was right below. … She also followed our brother Mark around.”

But it was Ronson’s mother who made the more serious allegations.

“[Lindsay] was doing drugs,” she said of the party incident.

“And we could not sleep that night at the Chateau, she was complaining about the music and noise coming from upstairs, she was trying to get attention so that Sam could come down.”

Added Ann: “She cuts herself too. She is a cutter!”

The ‘Mean Girls’ star had earlier confirmed her split with Sam adding:

“We are taking a brief break so I can focus on myself.”

Can anyone say cuckoo, la la la Lohan is one hot mess right now.

Madonna left Malawi today after her failed adoption bid for 3-year-old Mercy James.

The little girl was preparing to return back to the orphanage where the star had found her.

A Kumbali Lodge staff member where the 50-year-old was staying said: “Madonna spent some time with Mercy; she looked sad but Lourdes, who had clicked with the little girl, looked devastated.”

The ‘Like A Virgin’ singer has since filed an appeal against the ruling.
