On Wednesday a well-dressed woman was spotted wearing this Louis Vuitton print handbag at the Paris Fashion Week Spring / Summer fashion show by Jean-Paul Gaultier. Are there any LV experts among you who can tell me if this bag is for real?

I questioned the appointment of Marc Jacobs to be LV’s head designer when I saw some of the pieces he designed. First the monstrosity worn by Beyonce and now this mess? I’m not feeling the new direction that LV is going in.

According to a local producer who was tapped to produce tracks on Britney Spears‘ new CD, Britney is hearing voices. The producer who has worked with some of the biggest name in the business is telling friends that the scheduled studio sessions with Britney are canceled indefinitely.

“Britney has some serious problems. It’s worse than what you think,” said a source in the producer’s camp. “She’s hearing voices. That’s why she has a British accent now. She’s not just playing crazy.”

The source revealed Britney recently made several visits to Atlanta to work on tracks with the well known producer.

The source also said Britney believes she’s possessed by a British princess whose spirit has taken over Britney’s body.

According to the AP, the masseuse who found Heath Ledger‘s body called his girlfriend Mary-Kate Olsen a total four times – not twice as was widely reported by the media.

Masseuse Diana Wolozin spent nine minutes, making three phone calls to Olsen – and waiting more than a minute between each call – before ever dialing 911, then called Olsen a fourth time after paramedics arrived at Ledger’s New York apartment, the AP reports.

Wolozin first called Olsen on Ledger’s own phone using the speed dial after the masseuse was unable to wake up the actor.

The additional calls were discovered when police took a closer look at phone records, according to AP.

Publicity reps are paid to dupe the unsuspecting public into believing whatever line they feed us. When a celebrity is in need of damage control because of persistent rumors such as he is sleeping with his manager who is old enough to be his mama – they usually resort to the manufactured relationship.

Hollywood has been faking celebrity relationships since the early days of moving pictures. Remember Rock Hudson who dated many Hollywood starlets so the public wouldn’t find out that he was gay? And who can forget the totally unbelievable relationship between Ciara and Bow Wow? Honestly, who did they think they were fooling?

Now we have Rihanna, the new Hollywood IT girl who we’re supposed to believe is dating the prince of R&B, Chris Brown. It would be cute if it were true, but unfortunately it isn’t. Good try though, Tina.

From London’s bio:

LONDON
Among the many hopefuls who attempt to make it big in the music industry, only a chosen few obtain the goal. Even more elusive are those who exceed it. They’re the ones who have that elusive “it” quality – the ones whose genuine talent and ability to engage an audience and deliver a song with a matchless style sets them apart from the masses. The ones like London. Armed with years of preparation and an abundance of talent, this burgeoning singer-songwriter is destined to stand out in a sea of “next big names” in R&B music via his Universal/Motown debut, Man of My Word.

A native of Oakland, California, London’s talent for singing was initially discovered as a child. He sang in his church choir and he eventually joined them. As an adolescent London set his sites on a career in music but like many of his peers in the hip-hop generation, singing didn’t strike him as a particularly masculine hobby. Instead, he opted to make his professional foray into the industry as a rapper as a member of the eight-man crew Keep It Clean. The group had begun to see moderate success but sought to add an element that would give them that unique edge.

Hi Sandra,My name is Stephanie Abdullah. I do publicity work with Bobby Brown. I’ve been made aware of the viscious hateful rumor about Bobby that is posted on your site.
