Brit's "Blackout" Headed for Wipeout?

10/19/2007 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsIt might be Sir Ben Kingsley's morning mantra, but Britney Spears' "Gimme More" isn't exactly burning up the radio, and pre-sales of her new album, "Blackout," are more than a little bleak.

That's according to FOX News, which says that "Gimme More" is "dead" on the radio, citing trade paper Radio & Records, which also reports that the single is at the bottom of every chart. Meanwhile, Brit's big comeback album, due in just a week and a half, is withering at 76 on Amazon.com, which suggests weak advance interest. "Gimme More" is currently #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart.

Winehouse Popped for Pot in Norway


Was Amy Winehouse really nabbed in Norway for marijuana possession? Yes, yes, yes.

The singer and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, and an unnamed third person were arrested late yesterday in Bergen, which is in southwestern Norway, after police were tipped off. "They were found with seven grams (about a quarter-ounce) of marijuana," said prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe. "She's paid the fine, so this thing is over for us now."

Winehouse was to perform in Oslo Saturday, and then move on to, er, the Netherlands. Her reps had no comment.

Doesn't Fox News have any real news to cover? It seems like they enjoy celeb bashing more than anything, I guess because it sells. But whatever, they act so high and mighty, and for what? Reports on Britney Spears. What a joke.

this album flopping is just what Britney needs to wake up...put her children first like a normal mother "star or NOT" her priorities are so out of wack...she needs to really REFLECT on all that has happened to her and see the reason's..asap..

In the mean time she is really a great example of married to soon, the Cool dirtbag pot head is NEVER a good choice in a mate,young adults should TAKE the advice of people around them who care about their best interest and best of all.... DRUGS F**K up your look and could cost you everything....

Umm, just checked Radio and Records. Not a Brit fan, but if being #3 on the charts is "languishhing at the bottom" then I should be so lucky. The furthest down I've seen Gimme More is 17. why can't you just report the truth without the lies??

Legalreader, the "young girl" is destroying her OWN career all by herself. Every personal detail revealed isn't causing it, she would just curl up and die if she didn't have media exposure. Jeez, you're stupid.

So, Hello? What does that say about TMZ? Fox News might like to report about Britney, but TMZ is reporting on Fox's report about Britney. It's not even TMZ's report!

stupid people    

some of you idiots need to visit fox news. they don't just report celebrity news. it's not on their frikkin' front page. in fact, the news is at the middle of the page.
besides, everyone is interested in celebrity news and don't you dumbasses really pay attention to news format.
anyone with a brain can see that all big news stations have entertainment section...next time READ AND DON'T POST STUPID COMMENTS!
