Brit's "Hit" Dips, Trips on List, Timba Flips

9/13/2007 9:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Britney Spears' MTV craptastrophe may have really killed her comeback after all.

Her super-hyped new single, "Gimme More," arrived on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at a highly disappointing #85, with radio stations and other record-spinners largely shunning the big new release. But the flop did not have to be so, says producer Timbaland, who tells MTV that Britney dissed what could've been a real hit collaboration with himself and Justin Timberlake.

Says Timba, "She should humble herself and make a phone call and say, 'I'm sorry.' She knows what she's sorry about." Throttling her own career, perhaps?

K-Fed and Britney's Surprise Lawyer Visit


Elsewhere in the land of Brit-Brit, People reports that she and Kevin Federline celebrated son Jayden James' first birthday yesterday ... by meeting at her lawyer's office.

"Britney asked for [the meeting]. She wants to put an end to this public debacle," says a Spears source to People. "However, Kevin [has] refused. He needs more money so he's determined to win this." The duelling exes are due in court in five days to hash things out.



Naomi – Confusing Baby Turtles Too!


So what if she really did bash a few heads in with her BlackBerry? Naomi Campbell's been accused of doing something far more pernicious -- confusing turtles in the Indian Ocean.

Naomi is the object of conservationist fury, reports the Times of London, because she's planning a new "six star" resort and casino in Malindi on the Indian Ocean, and the beachfront construction could have a critical effect on local green turtles. "This would have a very negative effect on turtle nesting," says Athman Seif, the director of the Malindi Marine Association. Baby turtles hatching on shore, apparently, would be confused by artificial light, and instead of staying on land, would go back into the sea -- and die.

Party Favors: Charlize Theron Married? ... Heath Ledger Gets His Joker on Post-Michelle ... Wanna Watch Clint Introduce "Unforgiven"? Well, Do Ya, Punk?


Charlize Theron is, in fact, married -- says her longtime beau, though it might not be legal. Stuart Townsend confirms to People that he and the Oscar winner are "husband and wife," but that they didn't do a church wedding. ... Heath Ledger was out the other night, say Rush & Molloy, working on the ladies, and the best he could do for pick-up lines was this: "I know a lot of people here in the city, so we could have some fun." ... Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson, and Julie Andrews will be among the luminaries introducing some of list-happy AFI's favorite films like "Unforgiven," "One Few Over the Cuckoo's Nest," and "The Sound of Music" at its 40th anniversary bash on October 3, lovingly sponsored by Target.

Baby turtles may go into the ocean & die --- WTF? Sea Turtles, like the Kemp's Ridley, are hatched on land and look to the horizon for the moonlight to guide them TO THE SEA so they WON'T die. If they see artificial hotel lights they are drawn back into the sand dunes towards the hotels & that's where they die or get killed by other animals looking for a tasty treat...

#85 isn't that disappointing for a first entry. That's just ignorant to bitch about that. An entry doesn't define the whole track record of a song. And what about mentioning "Gimme More" has reached #41 on the Pop 100 and #25 on the Pop 100 Airplay?! Oh wait, that is actually good news, and that's not what you want to bring to the forefront.

Britney, just go away for a while and get your head together. You and your kids don't need this crap. Take at least 6 months away from the spotlight and grow the hell up. The curse of Brokeback Mountain will go on to others, just wait and see.

I think you have it backwards on the turtles. They are hatched, and follow moonlight into the water. If there is a lot of artificial light, they go away from the ocean - and die.

If Kevin Ferderline needs more money, then why doesn't he get a job? This guy is a piece of work. He leaves his pregnant girlfriend and daughter to trapse around the globe with a hot pop singer. Marries the pop singer, pops out two kids and now demands money. I actually feel bad for Britney. A momentary lapse of judgment is going to cost her. I would say cut him a check for $5million and be done. Jennifer Lopez did that with her dancing ex and he doesn't bug her anymore. Its worth the money to get this loser out of your life.

I can't stand Britney but enough already. Eventually someone has to do something to help her. Ali, her bodyguards, they all need to walk away. This stopped being funny about 50 seconds into her MTV performance. How far do we have to watch her fall!

Here is an interesting theory: Britney deliberatly bombed the VMAs to prove she has no future earnings so K-FED's attempt to steal her money is a waste of time.

sincere    

Britney's problems started when she married K-Fed. Now I am not putting all the blame on him but he has a lot to do with her downfall. He was out partying during their marriage while she was at home caring for her kids and his kids to shar. After the divorce he immediately turned his back on her and claimed she was a bad mother. But he was not saying that when they were married. This pathetic smear campaign is being lead my Kevin to get control of her money. He is the one making all these bogus calls to child protective services. How LOW can you possible go? And her gold digging family and manager is all to happy to take advantage of her depression from her divorce and betrayal instead of getting her help in PRIVATE. Britney is only 25 and worth over 100 million dollars so of course it is easy to manipulate someone in her position.

Blah blah blah    

What makes Federline think he is intitled to anything more? She stuck to her end of the pre-nup, now he should just snake on to the next victim. Brittney is not obligated to give him anymore, she is not responsible for his other two children. Spousal support usually based on the amount of money to keep the person living in a lifestyle the were accustom to, in that case he should be paying her. He had nothing before he met her, so why should she provide him with a better lifestyle?
