Celeb news from the netherworld

Britney’s latest–she’s taking a break. Via Stereogum, part of the letter to fans she posted on her web site:
“Going & going & going is all I’ve ever known since I was 15 years old. It’s amazing what advisors will push you to do, even if it means taking a naive young blonde girl & putting her on the cover of every magazine.”
Sounds like she paid a heavy price to make $50MM. I am glad now she can lie around and eat cheetos and get her childhood back.
Paris Hilton’s lending her name to a chain of nightclubs. Makes sense in her case, that porn, exhibitionism and shameless self promotion lead inevitably to the hospitality biz.
