Christina Aguilera's in a good place: She's got a new album dropping imminently, she's legitimized herself as one of music's foremost torch singers, and she's been inseparable from her husband, music exec Jordan Bratman, ever since they met in Atlanta almost five years ago.

But, today, Xtina tells the world that her true love is an inanimate object ... and probably not the one you're thinking of.



The 25-year-old pop diva, whose new two-disc album, "Back to Basics," has its official release Aug. 14 but has been leaked onto the Internet in advance, tells a reporter for USA Weekend magazine about a certain compulsion she has. "I am a perfectionist by nature. I'm an organizational freak. My label maker is my best friend. It's to the point where sometimes it annoys even me." No word on what hubby Bratman thinks of Aguilera's obsession.

Meanwhile, the interview also notes the diametrically opposed trajectories that former Mickey Mouse Club colleagues Xtina and Britney Spears have taken since their respective bursts onto the scene in the late '90s, with Christina taking care to keep her profile low and emerging relatively unassailed by the media, and Britney dissolving into a somewhat tragic puddle of. . .well, you can just see for yourself.

Carmen and Dave Got Off on Right Foot

Carmen Electra and estranged hubby Dave Navarro definitely engaged one another at their engagement party – in the bathroom, while guests whooped it up outside, according to a Playboy bunny named Izabella St. James in Page Six. St. James claims she was waiting for a stall in the ladies' room when Electra and Navarro emerged: "He was buttoning his pants, and she was fixing her clothes." Now that Electra and Navarro have split up, St. James said she is "really bummed." St. James is amongst the former girlfriends of Hugh Hefner that is writing a tell-all about their life together, which doesn't appear to bother the Pajama King tremendously.

Courtney 3.0 – Dior Model, Or Not?

Things have turned around for Courtney Love, it seems – she's been keeping her nightlife profile low and keeping her name out of the tabloids by avoiding the kind of antics like hitting a fan with a mike stand and getting photographed with a strange man suckling on her breast that made her such media fodder in 2004.

And she's been telling friends, according to Page Six, that she might be featured in an upcoming campaign for Dior after a chance meeting with designer Hedi Slimane in LA, but apparently that's not happening. Though she did in fact pose for photos, she didn't quite make the final cut. "I can definitely tell you that she's not in the campaign," sniffed a Dior rep.

KISS Fans Protest Hall of Fame Snub – In Wrong Place

The famously rabid fans of rock legends KISS are irritated that their favorite band hasn't yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Saturday about 200 of them trekked to Cleveland to demand that the Gene, Ace, and the boys get their due.

The band has been eligible from the late '90s – 25 years after the release of their first album is the criterion – and the fans, who had come as far away as California, carried signs outside the museum and, of course, had their faces painted in the appropriate manner.

Of course, if they had really thought about it, they would've done their thing in New York, where the actual selection committee works.

Goodie Bag: Cage Returns for More "Treasure", "Barnyard" Animals Like Snackwells

Director Jon Turteltaub has announced a sequel to his 2004 hit National Treasure, which featured Nicolas Cage on a treasure hunt based on a map he found on the back of a copy of the Declaration of Independence. Rejoining Cage will be Treasure co-stars Diane Kruger, Harvey Keitel, Jon Voight and Justin Bartha ... The Los Angeles Times notes that the cows in the new animated movie "Barnyard" are anatomically incorrect-the female cows are differentiated only by their girlie hair accessories. "Are hornless, uddered boy-cows the next big thing in aggressively marketed, reality-displacing fallacies, like Snackwells and intelligent design?" asked LAT film critic Carina Chocano.

Nobody cares if Carmen had sex in the bathroom at Hefner's ( she must have gotton a case of crabs from the toilet seat) and the Christina and Nicolas stories were zzzzzzzzzzzzzz........snore ....and time to go to sleep numbers. Let's get on the BALL. Let me know if you need additional staff writers.

Why do you constantly do the comparisons between Xtina and Britney. Britney attracts the most media and if someone followed you 24/7 they would catch all kinds of dirt. The media is not interested in Xtina unless she says something about Britney. Xtina can't even do an interview without someone mentioning Britneys name.

Xtina has enormous talent but she will never be as famous as Britney. The old saying is the media will run over a million Xtinas to get to one Britney.

So give the Britney bashing a rest will ya. You all are the source of all the bad pictures and press. Let her have her baby in peace and quit digging up dirt.

Britney will be back whether good or bad ...but one thing is for certain...what ever she does will produce enormous press and comments. Thanks to you media.

i think wut the person above me said, Sarina sweezer is really rude and uncalled for to say. brtiney hasn't done anything to her and she has no reason to say that the only news she wants to hear is her jumping off a building, and calling her a fat trashy ass. she needs to take the stick out of her ass and relize that other people are more important then her and if she dislikes wut this site talks about so much, she shouldn't visit it.

WTF?    

Uh, Manuel....your post doesn't make much sense.
Everyone does not have to agree....we are in America, ya know. Lots of people visit this website for celeb news...all of it, not just on the people we like. So, you may see posts that you don't agree with....GET OVER IT.

Britney is only in the headlines because of train wreck appeal.
Xtina is the headlines because she is a talented singer with a new CD. I bet Britney wishes she had a new CD to sell, but instead we have to make do with her newest baby....Yawn....Who cares?????? Britney does.

Britney is a tabloid princess, the media wants her because her bizzare antics outshine anysort of talent she may have. She and Paris are in the same Rich White Trash Fame Light.

Christina has remained professinal, and grows and grows, as a class act and woman. Not a perfect person, but who is. Her talent and wisdom continues to shine through, being the true cream of the crop, from her writing and composing.
Top that Princess Britney.....is that baby poop I smell?
