Britney Spears Pissed

She played it cool on stage, but Britney Spears was "pissed" at ABC over a derogatory sketch aimed at her estranged husband, Kevin Federline, during last night's "American Music Awards," a Britney rep tells TMZ.

E!'s Marc Malkin first reported Brit was upset, and now a rep for Brit tells TMZ, "She had no idea" that the skit would immediately precede her appearance. We're told Britney was "incredibly upset" and "inconsolable."

The sketch featured AMA host Jimmy Kimmel sealing a Federline look-a-like in a wooden crate and shipping him out to sea. Kimmel called K-Fed,"the world's first ever no-hit wonder." Less than five minutes later, Kimmel introduced Spears as a surprise presenter.

The Wedding Photo of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

The Bride, the Groom and the Baby Wore Armani

Holmes' wedding gown was made of ivory silk embroidered with Swarovski crystal designed by Giorgio Armani. The floor length-low-cut dress, decorated with a crinoline frill at the shoulders and a silk border around the hem, also had a train in ivory silk cadis adorned in Valenciennes lace.

Holmes wore an ivory tulle floor length veil and ivory silk shoes, and carried a bouquet of flowers, including calla lilies.

Armani said that Cruise, a client and friend for years had asked him to design his bride's gown.

Cruise was also dressed in Armani — wearing what the designer described as a navy blue single-breasted silk suit with a matching vest, an ivory silk shirt that was made of the same fabric as the bride's gown and a silk tie.

Suri, the couple's daughter was also wearing Armani as Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes exchanged vows Saturday at a medieval castle northwest of Rome. It was a little white wool bloomer dress, decorated in tulle. Armani said he made the outfit simple, not wanting to exaggerate the dress of a child.

Holmes changed to a peach colored peach-colored Armani evening dress of silk organza decorated with Swarovski crystal beads at the reception that followed the ceremony. Cruise changed into a darker shirt.

Shields and Cruise had a public spat last year after the ``Mission: Impossible III'' star criticized the actress for taking antidepressants after the birth of her first daughter.

In September, Shields said Cruise had personally apologized to her, and Cruise's spokesman, Arnold Robinson, confirmed the two celebrities had made up.

Katie Holmes Parents

Holmes' parents arrived Thursday in the Italian capital for Saturday's wedding. They were whisked away in a van that had been waiting for them at the city's small Ciampino airport.
The gossip that the parents are going to boycott the wedding is just a gossip.

Anyway the spokesman for the couple has already denied the story and it was only a family friend who said that Martin and Kathleen Holmes are “not happy” with their daughter’s “choice of where to marry.” Martin Holmes allegedly told the friend, “Katie can have a proper Catholic wedding her whole family will gladly be a part of.”

Katie Holmes initially wanted a Catholic wedding, but “realized she’d never win the argument about having a Catholic wedding,” a Holmes family friend reportedly told the mag. “She knows that if she had rejected Scientology, her relationship with Tom could’ve ended.”

Patrick Dempsey, star of medical drama Grey's Anatomy, came second, with fellow actor Ashton Kutcher third.

It is the second time Clooney has won the award - the first was in 1997. The actor joked that fellow two-time winner Brad Pitt "was going to be upset".

Clooney won the best supporting actor Academy Award for his role as a CIA agent in Syriana earlier this year.

"His big movies came out at the end of last year, he has been active in the campaign to help people in Darfur, obviously he's great looking," People magazine's Cynthia Sanz, a member of the selection panel, told Reuters.

"We just thought he was the total package this year."

"It's a little more fun when the sexiest man alive is available," she added, referring to the actor's single status.

Others in the top 10 included Jake Gyllenhaal and Without A Trace star Enrique Murciano.


Michael Jackson's fans disappointed, demand for ticket refunds

What do you know, Michael is back and so are his fans.

Jackson fans demand ticket refund

Angry Michael Jackson fans are seeking refunds on their tickets for the World Music Awards.

Entry to the award show cost as much as £100, and fans say they were misled by promises that Jackson would perform a version of his hit single, Thriller.

"I'm furious," said Katherine Kidd, who spent £200 to get to the show. "I feel like I've been ripped off."

Jackson only sang a few lines of We Are The World before leaving the stage. Thriller was performed by Chris Brown.

"It was a huge anti-climax," said 29-year-old Londoner Zareen Iqbal. "I just walked off."

I should have just stayed at home and watched it on TV
Abdo Binmadhi, Michael Jackson fan
"People were expecting something significant but he didn't perform at all," said Abdo Binmadhi, who travelled from Oxford for the show at Earls Court in London.

"When the lights went on I saw people's faces and they were like: 'Is that it?'"

"I should have just stayed at home and watched it on TV... We should definitely get a refund."

Sound 'cut'

The organisers of the World Music Awards said that they had "not been contacted by any of the fans or had one complaint" regarding the event.

They added that Jackson's performance had been cut short because the ceremony over-ran, breaking a noise curfew at the venue.

"I was standing watching Jackson perform... and suddenly he stopped," said Julius Just, head of Public Relations for the awards.

"They cut the sound on one of the greatest living artists in the world.

"It's the first time anything like this has happened in 18 years of the World Music Awards."

But officials at Earl's Court denied that the sound had been cut.

"We accommodated the show and the show's organisers by obtaining an extension to our licence in order to allow the show to run to eleven o'clock," said spokesman Jeremy Probert.

"And as far as we're concerned, that's what the show did. As a matter of fact, I think it finished about a minute-and-a-half early," he added.

Happy fans

However, not everyone at the award ceremony was left disappointed by Jackson's performance.

We were a bit confused because we never got to the actual song
Paolo Mariani, Choir member

"I thought it was fantastic," said Joseph Dougal, from East Kilbride, in an email to the BBC.

"None of the fans expected him to give a performance, so it was a true surprise."

Adam Saunders, 26, bought tickets for his fiancée, Caroline, who had waited all her life to see Michael Jackson.

"It was worth it just to see her happiness at seeing him on stage," he said.

"She just kind of went numb. There were tears in her eyes."

Paolo Mariani, who was part of the 50-strong choir that sang with Jackson, called the performance the "best experience of my life".

The 17-year-old, who has never sung professionally before, was hand-picked for the chorus last week, shortly after the pop star confirmed his appearance.

"It was so rushed that we didn't even have time to rehearse with Michael Jackson," he said.

"We got there at one o'clock on the day of the show and basically rehearsed in a room with a choreographer for a couple of hours.

"We were rehearsing to sing the whole song - so we were a bit confused because we never got to the actual song. The music was just cut off.

"I can see that fans might have felt let down, but for us it was amazing."

Madonna's adoption challenge to be decided next week

The sixty seven groups that are challenging the adoption of Madonna of a Malawian boy wanted to be heard.

An alliance of 67 groups is pushing for the right to challenge the interim adoption order which let Madonna take one-year-old David Banda from Malawi.
David's father is opposed to moves to halt the adoption.
The judge says he will decide next Monday if the group will be allowed to participate in the adoption hearings.

Madonna explained why she adopted the boy aside from donating millions to help the orphanages in Malawi.

Why won't these human rights groups allow the singer to give the baby a better future
than what is offered in the orphanage.
