Britney's got a Purse Full of Pills

Oops she did it again: Britney Spears has shown the world too much of herself in recent weeks and now she reveals even more. During one of the pop singer's many nights of hard partying she was spotted with more than alcohol. In Touch Weekly is reporting that the mother of two's purse held a whole lot of pills, including anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications. "It looked like a pharmacy in there -- I have never seen so many pills," an eyewitness says. As Spears exited the establishment she carried a glass of wine to her vehicle and then proceeded to get behind the wheel. Don't worry, she passed the glass over to her passenger. ... Meanwhile, Spears' ex, Kevin Federline, is trying to learn something new -- how to be smart. Page Six is reporting the aspiring rapper showed up at the book launch for The Concise Guide to Sounding Smart at Parties, by David Matalon and Chris Woolsey. Witnesses say K-Fed even approached the authors and "seemed interested in how to sound smart." Here's a clue, stay quiet.

Mom behaving badly: In a photo posted on perezhilton.com, Elvis Presley's only child, Lisa Marie Presley, is holding back her daughter's hair as she makes out with her boyfriend in a club. Presley's daughter Riley Keough is 17, her boyfriend, Ashlee Simpson ex Ryan Cabrera, is 24. Hey, at least Presley knows what her daughter is doing and who she is doing it with. ... Mother knows best: According to TMZ.com Tina Simpson is furious with her daughter after she made a fool of herself in front of a large audience. Jessica Simpson performed the Dolly Parton classic "9 to 5" at the Kennedy Center Honors last week, but claimed she was nervous after she flubbed the lyrics to the tune. The funny thing is, she even had cue cards to work with! The elder Simpson told her daughter that her performance was "embarrassing" and "unprofessional" and she should get out of the business if she doesn't want to put in the effort. Maybe she should just get out of the business because she is mediocre at most things she does.

Little miss bad behaviour, the world doesn't revolve around you: Lindsay Lohan made a scene at the GQ Men of the Year dinner earlier this month, according to Page Six. The Mean Girls star "flipped out" after spotting The Illusionist star Jessica Biel with her assistant, who used to work for Lohan. A witness said Lohan loudly voiced some choice words about her former employee. "If she stays, I'm outta here! I can't look at that girl! I can't believe you would allow an assistant in here -- she doesn't belong in here!" Lohan's antics proved to be too much for some of the celebrities attending the event. Overhearing the actress's drama, Will Ferrell turned to Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Gore and said, "Who cares about that freak anymore, anyway?" setting off laughter at the table.

Dreamgirls drama: Rumours are circulating that singer-turned-actress Beyonce Knowles is jealous of the Oscar buzz her co-star and former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson is receiving for her performance in the film. Knowles tried to brush those rumours off recently, but instead fueled the fire. Jay-Z's girlfriend tells hollywood.com she was happy to take a smaller role in the film because "I'm already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing." ... Hudson put herself in the spotlight when she made some comments on religion and lifestyle choices to the Dallas Voice recently. When asked by the paper if she thought being gay was a sin, her response was: "According to the way we are taught, and what it says in the Bible -- it is." Us Weekly reports Hudson has since denied her statements on her MySpace blog and has sent a statement to The Advocate saying she has friends who are gay. One question remains, how does she really feel? ... A woman who knows exactly how she feels: Linda Ellerbee, a television producer, was recently asked by Edutopia, the magazine of the George Lucas Educational Foundation, who she would take to the prom. She replied: "Johnny Depp! I go to bed every night in the sincere hope that the tooth fairy will leave Johnny Depp on my pillow the next morning." You and me both, lady.
