Britney Gets Love from Lindsay, None from Family

5/4/2007 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears gave the shortest show yet on her "comeback" mini-tour last night in L.A.-- and TMZ spies report that none other than Lindsay Lohan was there to catch the action -- all 11 minutes of it.

Our eyes inside noted that Brit donned a new wig for her big show at L.A.'s House of Blues, and that it managed to stay on without the aid of a headband. There were no naughty references to drug use, as had been reported from another show, and Spears left the stage with a terse, "Thank you L.A."

Meanwhile, Britney's aunt, Chandra McGovern, tells "Inside Edition" that the pop star's family has been "very disappointed" in Brit's crotch-flashing, head-shaving, SUV-slugging antics. "It was a rebellion against everybody," says Aunt Chandra of the bald head.

Katie's Not Tied Up in Basement, Says Jada


At least someone wears the pants in the Cruise-Holmes household, if Jada Pinkett Smith is to believed. The actress and family pal tells People that Holmes is "running her own show," despite rumors that Cruise has tight rein over his wife's life. "Kate ain't no little wimpy kitty cat," says Pinkett Smith. Other friends of the Cruises weigh in, claiming that the couple do normal things like going to baseball games and making popcorn before watching movies. As for concerns that the Church of Scientology is running Holmes' life, Pinkett Smith says, "People think Tom and the Church of Scientology got something on Kate? They don't."

Kelly Clarkson's Album Gets Slammed, Scrapped?


Original "American Idol" Kelly Clarkson is having serious musical issues -- her album is reportedly being s**tcanned after her record label's boss, Clive Davis, decided that he hated the new tracks. According to a British tab, the Daily Star, Davis was "absolutely merciless in his criticism" of Clarkson, and it's back to the mixing board to get new songs recorded. Clarkson has won multiple Grammys and has sold more records than any other former "Idol" winner. No word from reps as to the status of the album.

Party Favors: Elizabeth Taylor Tells "Simpsons" to "F**k Off" ... NBC Pays Princely Sum for Royals ... Busta Rhymes' Armored Car


"Simpsons" creator Matt Groening tells Playboy (via Rush & Molloy) that he actually enlisted Elizabeth Taylor to voice the first words of baby Maggie -- "Daddy" -- but after 24 takes ("They were always too sexual," says Groening) the screen legend told him to "F**k off" and bailed. ... Did NBC pay $2.5 million to get Matt Lauer an exclusive with Princes William and Harry? Sources tell Page Six that while NBC News didn't (and wouldn't) pay for the access, NBC itself paid the big bucks for the rights to air the Princes' tribute concert to their late mother, which had an interview attached to it. ... That SUV that Busta Rhymes was driving yesterday when he got popped for DUI? Turns out, according to the New York Daily News, that it was a $225,000 armored version that's more like a tank than a mere truck.

TMZ didn't print this part of the article on what Jada Pinket Smith said but here's what she said. And it pissed me off royally. She said,

""Kate is running her own show. And she's a great mother. Her kids _ Connor, Bella, Suri _ are dynamic children and are extremely happy. And her husband is very, very happy."

I totally beg to differ. Conner and Bella are NOT KATIE's kids. They are Nicole's kids. She's their step mother only and that doesn't make her even CLOSE to being their mother.

As for her being happy...yeah...right.

The daily Britney new is so bad. I'm trying to think of another pop star that would get this much attention when they weren't that talented. People can lie all they want, we know that Katie is in a prison living with Tom Cruise. I'm not worried about Kelly Clarkson she's got talent and I mean real talent not Britney type talent!!!

............Hey Tom, invest some money in fixing your wife's ears, how many channels can she pick up with those whoppers? Do you place her on the roof, or can she stay inside?

Why are loser family members, similiar to Virgie, who haven't seen the person in years, suddenly pop up to give interviews. This woman is on her dad's side of the family, and she hasn't seen her in years. Another attention seeking loser. No wonder Britney went nuts, she has this crew as role models. I hope Britney does write a tell all book, there are two sides to every story. The families of these stars get jealous of their money and fame, and feel they are entitled to some of it. I am sure Britney's mom is living in a mansion in Louisiana off of Briltney's success. That is why she is was so mad when Britney went off the deep end, she didn't want to lose her cash cow. Does she have a job? She as a mother should have recognized Britney was suffering from Post Partum Depression.

Who the hell cares what Jada P.Smith thinks? Just because she runs the show in her household does not mean Katie does. Everyone knows that Tom got rid of Nicole after 10 years of marriage because she became the bigger star. Tom isn't going to let "Kate" make her own decisions. He won't make the same mistake twice!

As for Britney, why are her fans still willing 2 pay that kind of $ to watch her "cheerlead" for 11 lousy minutes? Pathetic!

Yeah, someday Britney will look back and see how foolish and childish she is acting. She needs to grow up, if not for herself, for her sons.

They are her step-children. I'm sure they both know Nicole is their mother.

WTF!!! Kelly Clarkson wrote all the music on her new album with her new band and she produced it herself. How the he*ll could it possibly suck THAT bad?????? What I wouldn't give for a bootleg copy of the original trax before she has to toss them or reproduce them. Just so I could compare her originals against the commercial end-product.
