While Britney was literally busting out of her dress around LA yesterday, at least she wasn't exposing herself. Which, to be fair, is more than can be said for another one of her outfits this week. She stopped off to grab her requisite Starbucks on an otherwise quiet afternoon with her photographer entourage. Supposedly she did have plans to audition dancers for a new music video and rumored tour, but canceled them last minute for the second day in a row. Considering how her first effort from Blackout went, I'd definitely rather see Britney work on proving how good she is with her kids than churn out more mediocre videos.
Fergie's new video for "Clumsy" was just released and it's worth checking out. She's already had three No. 1 hits off The Dutchess, so could "Clumsy" be next? The video looks like a pop-up book coming to life, which is super cool, but the product placement was a little much. What do you think - love it or leave it?
It was just another day in the life of LC as she stopped off at Mood Fabric store in LA and then picked up some things at Target on Wednesday afternoon. Thrilling stuff, I know, but we're pretty used to seeing the mundane of her life these days (even if it's all staged). MTV is loving their "reality" TV darlings these days, and today there will be even more of them on the "music" network — and, no, unfortunately it's not a Hills marathon. The girls are hosting MTV's Legally Blonde: The Musical special this afternoon, complete with a pink carpet show and intermission fun. Yays. Pretty much, the name will be changed to LCTV within the year.

It looked like a yucky afternoon in NYC as Angelina picked Maddox up at school on Thursday afternoon, but that was no skin off their backs. Angelina flashed a smile and Mad was still dressed in his summery athletic wear. The happy demeanor may have been because it was Mad's last day at his Manhattan school (and therefore the last day to deal with this particular zoo). Rumor has it that the family is packing up their things from that fancy apartment and shipping back to LA for Angelina and Brad to get to work on their next projects. I'm sure all the kids are used to their nomadic lifestyle, but it's a little sad that Mad doesn't get to stay in one school for more than a few months at a time. I'm sure you're all sad to say goodbye to the sidewalk outside this school, wink.

Gwyneth Paltrow was out and about in London looking amazing in a tiny mini-skirt and Marni platforms. Her first stop of the evening was at a party for Established & Sons, the design company founded by good friend Stella McCartney's husband where Gwyneth met up with Thandie Newton and the entire McCartney clan. Next up for Gwyneth was a trip to Aspinall's casino where Courtney Love was also spotted. From the looks of things, Gwyneth hasn't gained a pound on her culinary tour of Spain — not so surprising since we saw the size of the exercise room in her Hamptons vacation home.

Britney succeeded yet again in making more headlines than any other star with her ongoing custody battle and upcoming album. We found out that Blackout is being released earlier than planned, and we got a sneak peek at the new (official) cover. After arriving late to court on Thursday, she was awarded one supervised overnight visit a week, and to celebrate she took herself shopping. Here's what else went down:
- Lindsay is still in Utah but she's got her new boyfriend Riley to keep her company in between visits from her Dad and prepping for her next role.
- Pictures surfaced of Penelope Cruz and new boyfriend Javier Bardem on a hot and steamy vacation and the new couple took their love public in L.A.
- Orlando Bloom was in a late night car crash, raising the question: Why don't celebrities just hire drivers?
- Reese's divorce from Ryan was finalized this week, but that didn't slow Reese down. The strong Southern girl looked gorgeous at the premiere of Rendition with Jake and Meryl and went for a run.
- Eva Mendes was everywhere this week, from TRL, Letterman and the cover of Gotham Magazine, to the premiere of We Own the Night with her hot co-stars Mark and Joaquin.
- The Affleck brothers had a long week of promoting Gone, Baby Gone with magazine interviews and screenings, but Ben ended up back with his girls Violet and Jennifer on Thursday.
