Britney Spears' trashtastic hubby Kevin Federline couldn't find a label lame enough to release his rap single, so he's distributing it on his own.
K-Fed is dropping the song "PopoZao" on New Year's Eve, according to a mass e-mail sent from his myspace.com page. Federline cryptically notes, "I love you all. The ones that Love and the ones that Hate. The ones that Fight and those who Bite."
"PopoZao" is presumably the track in which Federline has been reported to say "Pavarotti" when he means "paparazzi." The single will be available on his Web site, kevinfederline.com, which promises, "I am coming."

What's wrong with Mike Myers?
We all know that he and his wife are divorcing. Entries from various Myers-spotters via Gawker Stalker reveal a troubled actor:
October 26th, 2005
Saw Mike Myers walking with head down, looking normal but self-conscious, on Bleecker and Bank Street.
Novemeber 22, 2005
Spotted a disheveled, bloated Mike Myers today (11/19) passing by the MoMa design store in Soho with a gay artiste-type friend. Couldn't decide if the companion was more Karl Lagerfeld or Andy Warhol but he definitely upped the hip factor of homeless-looking Austin Powers.

Last night outside Webster Hall at around 7:30, Mike Myers of SNL/Shrek fame stumbled past us, then proceeded to stumble up 11th street toward 4th Avenue, lingering on the block while looking terrible and talking on a cell phone. Perhaps he was practicing for his upcoming role as Keith Moon, but the man looked as bad as its possible to look, and after about 20 minutes of awkwardly bumping into walls and such, hopefully found his way somewhere safe.
December 27th, 2005
Saw Mike Myers yesterday (12/20) at Tea and Sympathy in the West Village with 3 friends. He looked very grumpy the entire time. Couldnt see what he was eating, but about halfway through the meal a very loud and obnoxious cell phone rang, getting everyones attention. He scrambled to get it, and apologized to everyone for the disturbance. Still looked grumpy, with a silly fur hat with ear flaps when he left.

Jessica Simpson is moving on literally.
Less than two weeks after filing for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on Dec. 16, Simpson has begun her new life by purchasing a $3 million Beverly Hills home and moving in.
"She's happy to have a house that's hers," someone close to the pop star said. "This is the first time she's making her own decisions." Among them: keeping the divorce proceedings as quiet as possible by requesting the case be assigned to a private judge and not aired in open court.

The King Kong actress, 37, and The Sum Of All Fears actor, 38, have been dating since April and are currently visiting Watts' family in Sydney. During her current stay in Sydney, Watts was seen visiting Chinese herbalist and fertility expert Lily Liu, according to the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper.
Watts recently admitted she was desperate for children, but was worried she had waited too long to conceive. She said, "I wish it could have happened a little bit sooner. I have wanted a family since I was 19 - certainly to have children."

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly paid $25 million to acquire ChÃ¢teau Gabriel, the 127 year-old Anglo-Norman house on the Normandy coast in Deauville that, for the last 27 years, has served as the summer home to Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre BergÃ©.
A call to Emile Garcin Paris, the company representing the residence, was not immediately returned.
Nestled on 75 acres of park-like grounds, the 9,000-square foot, five-story estatethe largest property with a view of the oceanboasts nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a summer salon, billiard room, and servants quarters. Each bedroom, in fact, is named for a character from Prousts Remembrance of Things Past. If the celebrity couple ever ties the knot, the Russian-style vacation cottage, where the designer sketched many of his collections, is surrounded by a birch grove and would be perfect for the in-laws. A waterfall, lake, apple orchard, stables, and extensive gardens that feature Japanese and English-style plantings round out the compound.
Saint Laurent and BergÃ© purchased the residence in 1978, after it was abandoned following WWII. Inside, Jolie and Pitt will luxuriate in first-floor rooms that mimic the blue-green colors of Monets Waterlilies, said to be a favorite of Saint Laurents. Extensive personal security aside, an entrance flanked by sphinxes will undoubtedly provide some additional deterrence to what will surely be eager paparazzi.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have gotten engaged, the couple confirmed. "We're so incredibly happy and in love. We cannot wait to start our lives together," they said in a joint statement.
McDermott proposed to the former Beverly Hills 90210 star at a Christmas tree farm on Christmas Eve in Toronto, Canada. Dean's sister put out lights for half a mile leading to a table for two surrounded by decorated Christmas trees. McDermott and Spelling rode up in a horse-drawn carriage, then he presented his fiancÃ©e with a diamond and sapphire ring. "It was so magical. All the stars aligned. I have never been happier in my life," McDermott said.
Spelling, 32, and McDermott, 39, met earlier this year in Canada while working together on the TV movie Mind Over Murder.
In September, Spelling announced she was splitting from her husband, actor-writer Charlie Shanian, after a year of marriage. The couple wed on July 3, 2004, in an extravagant wedding hosted by Tori's father, television mogul Aaron Spelling, at his 56,000-sq.-ft. Los Angeles mansion, McDermott filed for divorce on Sept. 9 from his wife of 12 years.
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and his wife, actress Shanna Moakler, both 30, welcomed their second child together, on Christmas Eve.
The baby girl, Alabama Louella Barker, was born at 12:22 p.m. and weighed in a 7 lbs., 1oz. In May, when news of the pregnancy was first announced, Barker said: "Hopefully it will be Christmas Eve. I'm hoping for a girl." He got his wish.
The couple, stars of the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers, have a 2-year-old son, Landon. Moakler also has a 6-year-old daughter, Atiana, with her ex-fiancÃ© Oscar De La Hoya.
Bottoms Up, Bree:
Pour another glass of wine for Bree on "Desperate Housewives." Better yet, just hand over the bottle.
The ABC show's creator, Marc Cherry, says Marcia Cross' character - who became a widow following her husband's poisoning and then watched her flipped-out fiance die of an overdose - isn't reacting well to changes. "We're starting her descent into alcoholism," Cherry tells TV Guide in its Jan. 2 issue, on newsstands Thursday. He says there are some alcohol-fueled moments with her fellow housewives where "it gets pretty ugly."
It shouldn't entirely be a surprise for fans of the show, since Cherry says he's been hinting about Bree's future ever since "Desperate Housewives" began a year ago. "When Bree has tension, she grabs a glass," he says. "Chart it back and you'll see so many moments where she just goes for the wine."
--I'll be interested to see how this plays out. Since Marcia and Felicity are the only ones who can truly act on that show (ok, you might be able to sway me on occasion with regard to Teri, but Eva is terrible, and that's that), I think this can be done really well.

Sean Lennon is determined to kick off the New Year with a new girlfriend - and he's asking the New York Post to help him find one.
"Any girl who is interested must simply be born female and between the ages of 18 and 45," John Lennon's singer/songwriter son, 30, told them. "They must have an IQ above 130 and they must be honest. They must not have any clinical, psychological disorders . . . and a kind heart. Clearly beautiful - but beauty on the inside is more important - but no deformities, third legs, fifth nipples . . . I'm completely alone and I'm completely miserable. So please send your request to [Page Six]."

Films that helped usher in a new era of censorship, changed the way Hollywood thought about the audience, provided a first-hand look at one of the nation's great disasters and introduced the world to the word "gnarly" are among the 25 films the librarian of Congress named to the National Film Registry on Tuesday.
Among the films selected by James H. Billington for inclusion in the registry are the 1933 Barbara Stanwyck film "Baby Face," whose racy content inspired the Hays Production Code, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," which took audience participation to another level, and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," which gave use "gnarly buds," were all included in the registry.
"The films we choose are not necessarily the 'best' American films ever made or the most famous, but they are films that continue to have cultural, historical or aesthetic significance," Billington said. Billington made his selections from more than 1,000 titles nominated by the public after lengthy discussions with the library's motion picture division staff and members of the National Film Preservation Board.
Also included in the film list are some of Hollywood biggest hits of the 1970s and early 1980s including "The Sting"; "Cool Hand Luke"; "The French Connection" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."
--"Rocky Horror Picture Show" is fantastic. Truly genius. I have the entire movie soundtrack on my iPod.
As if a giant ape weren't enough to get Jack Black going in "King Kong," the actor says he let loose one time while making the film.
"I had a bit of a lost weekend while we were doing `King Kong,'" Black says in the January issue of GQ magazine. "Overall I'm very responsible on set. I'm not one of those dudes who come drunk to the set."
"But there was a lost weekend where I had a little time off and I did some Ecstasy and I went on a kind of crazy rampage and I started smoking (again)," he says. "Me and another member of the cast, who will remain nameless, just running around, dancing around, drinking and Ecstasizing, smoking like a chimney. And then it was over."
The 36-year-old actor says he's since quit smoking and is on a strict diet. In "King Kong," he plays Carl Denham, a filmmaker who traps Kong and brings him to New York.
