People love GIMME MORE!

Think what you will of her parenting skills, her partying, her crazy attire...Britney is on the road to success and the musical comeback of her career! Her album is due out in a little under 6 weeks with if this kind of stuff continues it could be HUGE for her...

The Stats -- "Gimme More" makes a huge jump from #68 to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100! That's the biggest single for Britney Spears since "Baby One More Time" which was #1 for two weeks! Last time Britney was in the Top 10 was with "Toxic" at #9!

And now----
In the midst of another trying week in Britney Spears' personal life, she receives some positive professional news as "Gimme More" opens at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Digital Songs with 179,000 downloads and soars 68-3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both charts will be posted tomorrow (Oct. 4) on Billboard.com.

"More" is her fifth Hot 100 top 10 and her best showing on the list since her smash debut "...Baby One More Time" hit No. 1 for two weeks in January 1999. Her last top 10 was "Toxic," which peaked at No. 9 in March 2004.

Earlier this week, a California judge ordered Spears to hand over custody of her two small children to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. A hearing is scheduled today for further custody proceedings between the couple.
Spears' as-yet-untitled new album is still on target for a Nov. 13 release via Jive.

HC Bring da noise!

That's my girl...Go HC!! Hillary is pulling ahead in all of the polls and its looking like America is finally ready for some fresh REAL & HONEST blood!

Clinton's $27M tops Obama

Share this story: Digg del.icio.us Newsvine Reddit FacebookWhat's this?WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton raised $27 million for her presidential campaign this summer, outpacing all other candidates so far with her best three-month showing of the year. The bulk of the money — $22 million — is for use in the primaries.
Her total fundraising of nearly $80 million for the 2008 presidential race, reported Tuesday, puts her on a par with her chief Democratic fundraising rival, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois. He still leads Clinton in money raised for the primaries alone, though trailing in national opinion polls.

Obama reported raising at last $19 million from July through September for the primaries. He has raised a total of $75 million for the primary season and about $4 million for the general election next year.

Clinton's summer donations bring her total primary dollars raised this year to $62 million. The New York senator also raised $5 million for the general election in the quarter, adding to $12.6 million from previous quarters.

She also supplemented her fundraising earlier this year with a $10 million transfer from her 2006 Senate campaign.

This was the first quarter that Clinton has raised more than Obama, who brought in $20 million in the same period and has given her an unexpectedly tight competition in the money race.

Poor Britney

Okay so yes I am and always have been on Team Britney and yes I do have sympathy for her and yes I still will buy her CD and support her. I have never once condoned her behavior all I have ever said is NO ONE IS PERFECT! She never said she was something she wasn't and she never set expectations of herself in the media everyone started tearing her down for just living life...Now that her kids are with Kevin (great place right...MMMM or not) maybe she will finally take sometime for herself!
Here is the latest from E! Onlines Marc Malkin...

No Tears from Britney?
Is Britney Spears crying over losing custody of her children?

Apparently not.

A source tells me the embattled pop princess is fuming but not exactly sobbing. “There have been no tears,” I am told. “It’s more like she’s angry. It’s more like, ‘Who are you to tell me I’m not a good parent?’ ”

The source says Spears is in constant contact with her attorney’s office. “She calls them all day asking for advice, but then she doesn’t take any of it.”

Who else is she in contact with these days? Not many people. Despite being on the outs with her parents, Lynne and Jamie, I hear she does talk to her brother, Bryan, and sister, Jamie-Lynn.

“Obviously, her parents are disappointed, but they’re sort of relieved she lost custody,” my source says. “When Britney has them, she won’t allow them near the kids.”

A few weeks ago, I was the first to tell you that the small circle of people Britney does stay in touch with have been urging her to check in to rehab. I’m told the pressure is still on: “She hasn’t said she’ll go yet, but everyone wants her to.

“Even Kevin has told her to go," the source says. "If she wants her kids back, she doesn’t really have a choice. They think rehab will happen sooner than later.”

She is a MESSS!

Thanks for this DAVE-O!
