Will Britney even get to keep ANY of her hard earned ‘Circus Tour’ money to herself!!!???

Britney’s conservatorship with her father Jamie Spears has been ‘extended 6 more months or even up to one more year’ say lawyers involved in the case.

Daddy is still going to get his $16,000 a month, and Mr. Co-Conservator mystery man “Andrew Wallet” will be getting paid a large sum of $174,569.10 for his help from July-December 2009. Oh, and Britney has to pay around $300,000 in attorney fees for all of this!!!

Love you Britney. Hang in there! Don’t let this get you down! You’ll be free again soon! XOXO

Rest in Peace Brittany Murphy

I heard the news today oh boy…

I’m sorry to announce that famous actress Brittany Murphy is no longer with us. She passed away this morning due to “cardiac arrest”, say doctors.

I do not feel that it is necessary to go into details about how she went. This isn’t a murder mystery case, or anything twisted like the Michael Jackson case.

I would like to honor Brittany and put a beautiful bright white spotlight on her. I imagine her in a holy white light, floating in eternal bliss with the angels. I see her smiling down.

I remember when Brittany became famous in the 90’s movie “Clueless”, starring Alicia Silverstone, and co-starring Brittany. Brit played the outcast girl in high school, who then became popular. Brittany did tons of guest appearances on TV shows before Clueless, but Clueless really put Brittany on the Hollywood map.

Soon after “Clueless”, Brittany began starring in her own movies. She got a super hot role as a ‘mental institute patient’ in the film “Girl Interrupted”, sharing the screen with Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder. A memorable role soon after Girl Interrupted, was a starring role in an independent film called “Spun”. Mickey Rourke, John Leguizamo and Jason Schwartzman were also in the film. They all played meth addicts, and the whole movie revolves around all of the characters using and making the drug. The unique style of filming; fast cuts, extreme close-ups, uncomfortable ‘drug addict’ moments etc., truly portrays to the viewing audience how the drug makes a person feel. Brittany’s character was phenomenal! She was the glue of this film! “Spun” is a must see!!!

Brittany then worked with Eminem in the film “8 Mile”.  Soon after that she was in a bitchin Robert Rodriguez film, “Sin City” with other big named stars…

Between her blockbuster movies, she was always working. If you check out her IMDB, you will see that she was always working on everything from TV shows to Voice-Overs to Film…and she even was a singer!

Brittany Murphy sang a song for a Paul Oakenfold track called “Faster Kill Pussycat”. There is also a music video for this song. I remember…the song came out like 4 years ago. I’m a big fan of dance music and I’ve also worked with Paul, so to hear Brittany on his track was pretty exciting. I think the song is great and definitely should have gotten more recognition. Check it out guys.

It looks like Brittany has 4 films in post-production. One named “Poor Things” that is “rumored” to be “in production”.

To Brittany’s parents, family, friends and fans: Let’s celebrate Brittany’s wonderful life and all of her accomplishments. We’re all so proud of her, and we thank her for all of the joy she’s brought to us. Brittany would want everyone to continue to have a wonderful holiday, and be together with love. Brittany has got to go back to work with the angels now! But she will forever be in memory and in spirit.
