Britney Spears got panned for the quasi-concert she just gave in Miami this weekend, and her harshest critic was none other than Madonna's brother.
Christopher Ciccone sniffed to a Page Six source that Her Madgesty, his sister, "would never go onstage looking like that." That, of course, was a tramp-ish get-up including white go-go boots and those ever-problematic hair extensions. Page Six adds that the Miami crowd -- full of gay men and trannies – "sneered" at Brit's look.
Of course, as People reports, it's not for lack of trying -- or shopping -- that Britney's looking so rough on stage. The mag reports that "not ten minutes" after arriving at her hotel, she and pals stopped at stores all over South Beach, even fitting in a little spending -- while fans waited to get into the club.
Paris – I Missed Bed, Blackberry in Camp
Earth to Paris Hilton -- summer camp is going to be a picnic compared to jail. The heiress tells Us Weekly, in an interview done about a month before her sentencing, that the rigors of camp living -- which she "endured" for the taping of the new season of "The Simple Life" -- were "annoying." What's more, she hated not having Blackberry service, and really missed "a nice bed," as well as privacy. She better get used to it -- she'll be Blackberryless, bedless and privacy-less in about 12 days, when she's scheduled to enter the slammer.
TomKat Adding Another Kitten?

Well, says the source, "she told him she's ready." And they're already converting one of the seven bedrooms in a nursery.
Party Favors: "Idol" -- Jordin "Wipes Floor" with Blake ... Oprah's Dad Backs Off Book ... TMZ Helps "Knocked Up" Director with Leno Material
Looks like Jordin Sparks has the "American Idol" title all wrapped up, if the judges' reaction to her third song is any indication. Simon Cowell said she "wiped the floor with Blake" with her rendition of the designated "Idol" ballad of 2007 -- "This is My Now." ... Oprah Winfrey's father says he's putting his book about Oprah "on hold right now," perhaps because O told Rush & Molloy that she was "shocked" and "disappointed" when she found out about the tome. ... When Judd Apatow goes on the "Tonight Show" this evening and tells Jay Leno a story about trying to use a real mom giving birth to a real baby in his new movie "Knocked Up," you can thank TMZ for inspiring him to tell it. TMZ heard the tale and told him how funny the story was -- and now it'll be part of his Leno routine.
