Britney Spears - The Educator?

Britney recently did an interview with and talked about how different her would have been had she not pursued a music career and achieved so much success.

"I'd probably be a teacher," she says. "I love kids, and even in what I do now one of my favorite parts of my day is getting to meet my fans before the show. Especially the little ones. They are always so cute."

Britney says she'd likely have focused on reading and history. Her favorite historical time period is the 1920s.

I'm pretty sure I'd have no problem with detention in Ms. Spears class.

TLC is minus Kate and her 8

It was declining ratings that ultimately has lead to the demise of "Kate plus 8" - the reality show featuring Kate Gosselin, her twin daughters, and sextuplets. TLC has announced that the final episode will air September 12. Including the original run of "Jon & Kate plus 8" the show will have aired 150 episodes. Something tells me that this won't be the last we see of Kate...but the more important question...does anyone care?

Lady A Tops...again

Congratulations to Charles, Hillary, and Dave as "Just A Kiss," the lead single off the trio's upcoming album, Own The Night, has taken the number one spot on the Billboard Country Singles Chart and has also earned Platinum certification (1,000,000 units sold).

“Seeing country radio and the fans embrace the first single off our new album like this has been amazing and also a little relieving,” Charles says. “There are definitely some nerves and anxiousness involved when you are introducing new music, and this reaction has been beyond what we hoped for. It just makes us even more excited for Sept. 13 to get here."

The Band Perry take the lead

The Band Perry will kick off their Purveyors of Performance Tour on August 15th in Lewisburg, West Virginia. The 75-citiy roadshow includes some dates with Keith Urban and Reba McEntire.

The Band Perry, who have been a big part of Tim McGraw's Emotional Traffic Tour, are grateful to the artists who have helped them.

"It has always been our dream to play Country music," says the band. "We've been on the road as a family band for thirteen years and experienced the intimacy of theaters, the energy of county fairs and the joy of connecting with new faces as we support these amazing artists at arenas and amphitheaters. Artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Reba were the ones who originally inspired us to dream they have helped our dreams come true. We couldn't be more grateful to them or excited about the future."

Keith Urban Smells

Scary moment at Eagles training camp

Thoughts and prayers remain with Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson who suffered a seizure yesterday during practice. It was originally believed the seizure was due to dehydration, but tests revealed something much more serious.

Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder announced that Patterson was diagnosed with a brain arteriovenous malformation, which is a tangle of blood vessels in his head.

AVM is a congenital condition that will require either surgery or radiation; the Eagles are consulting various specialists before deciding on a course of action. Patterson is still at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa, which is where he was taken after the seizure. (Pic courtesy of Yahoo! sports) click here for the rest of the story

Keith Urban offers advice on addiction

Keith Urban has been sober for a number of years now, but is all too familiar with how addiction can control a person's life. In an interview with The Tennessean, Keith says his "heart breaks" for [Amy Winehouse's] family because "there's only so much you can do."

Keith did offer up this advice for the families of those battling addictions: "There does come a point where you have to pull away or detach with love, as they say, because otherwise the entire ship is going to go down, and you can't help someone who doesn’t want help. That's the tragedy of this particular thing - some make it and some don't. I don't think it's about ever giving up on somebody …I think if I've got any advice, it's to the families of these people and the importance of the family reaching out for help as a family, because sometimes the family getting help has the effect on the individual that the family was trying to do themselves. That's certainly been my experience, that the rallying and strength of a family around the individual is perhaps the greatest hope."

The Midas Touch

Congrats to Chris Young - "The Man I Want to Be" certified GOLD for selling more than 500,000 copies! Truly a great album! If you don't own this should!


So apparently Charlie Sheen and (ex?) Brooke Mueller are doing better?! TMZ has the full story, but what's most interesting about this, to me, is the fact that Charlie is waiting for HER to complete her rehab. Which, don't get me wrong, is great. But, c'mon can only kid yourself for so long...
