Britney Snaps Cause Holy Snit

10/30/2007 8:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsBritney Spears might incur the wrath of the judge in her custody battle -- we'll find out later today -- but first she'll have to deal with the outrage of the Catholic Church.

A picture of Brit perched on the lap of a priest in her new album "Blackout" is being called "the bottom of the barrel" by Bill Donohue, President of the New York-based Catholic League, according to the New York Daily News. "She's not even allowed to bring up her own kids because she's not responsible enough. Now we see she can't even entertain."

Meanwhile, in case you hadn't heard, the album drops today, and the other shoe -- Commissioner Scott Gordon's decision in the custody case -- will drop as well, and TMZ will be all over it.

Lohan Won't Party on New Year's Eve


On the other end of sensibility, Lindsay Lohan has decided against hosting a New Year's Eve bash in Las Vegas, to instead "focus on her work and sobriety."

Usmagazine.com reports that as recently as last week, LiLo was supposed to host the party at club LAX, an obligation she had to fulfill partially because her 21st birthday at sister club PURE was 86'ed because she went to rehab. But now, her rep tells Us, "Lindsay will no longer be hosting New Year's Eve in Las Vegas."

Still, a source says that Lindz might still end up doing something with PURE, possibly "another year from now."

Kid Rock Not Charged in Tommy Lee Punch-Up


Kid Rock has avoided being charged in his fight with Tommy Lee at the MTV Video Music Awards, according to authorities.

The Clark County D.A. won't "pursue a battery charge," reports EXTRA.

Rock still faces the misdemeanor battery stemming from a Waffle House fight a few weeks ago.

I'll have to admit that if she wants to be shocking and controversial, she's done it again.

The photo I saw of her sitting in the priest's lap was....unsettling. And I'm not even Catholic.

Ewwww. Just ewwww. Bad decision, Brit.

O'Donnell is helping the killing or our soldiers in Iraq, she's a pig and it figures a liberal rag like TMZ would only print half the story...What's wrong with you liberals that your so afraid of reporting the WHOLE story?? Stay out of politics, you have no idea what your dealing with.

Interesting choice of wording in the reporting of the Rosie/O'Reilly incident. While Rosie may have appeared calm, one of her handlers repeatedly placed their hand over the camera to prohibit filming and then absolutely DID make them leave. And her "saying only" blah, blah, blah...no, dears, she said much more than that....including a blatantly dishonest denial of her statements regarding 9/11. Watch the video again, TMZ...from your reporting, it appears you missed most of the facts.

I saw the O'Reilly Factor and the producer ask Rosie why she wouldn't come on the show and explain the 9-11 theory that she said while the host of the View. She lied and said she didn't say it, while the Factor played back her own words saying it. TMZ, you can call them Interlopers if you like we know you're as liberal Rosie, who else would cover Britney like she's a president or a queen.

And what does the Catholic Church have to do with Britney? Granted... a photo like that is DEFINITELY NOT in the best taste... but whatever... shouldn't they be more concerned with their Priests molesting little boys? Please.

That's awesome that Lindsay Lohan is doing so well.

No words for Rosie O'Donnell... you know the whole "if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all"... I'm practicing that. :)

As for Justin... how sweet... it's always nice to hear about celebs using their money for good causes!

Even though they're not friends anymore Brit's still following Madonna's footsteps--20-year old tactics!

PUHLEEZE, enough with trying to push your website. It's creepy, you are a liar and this is not the forum for it.

I would hope that TMZ would block your self-promotional comments.

It is called a costume! Is the catholic church also going to start an issue with all the people in America who dress up as priests for Halloween. If I were the catholic priests I would worry abot the priests all over the world who are sexually abusing children. They should focus on reporting pedopile priests to the police, rather than covering it up, and moving the priests around to other churches so they can continue to abuse children.

I'm sorry but...    

Tami, Lenn K, Seven Over...try getting the real story. Rosie has never said that 9/11 was an inside job. What she did say is that Building 7 fell at free-fall speed into its own imprint even though it was not hit by a plane. Never in history has a building fallen like that from fire. She suggests that people take a look at what was stored inside Building 7.

She did NOT say 9/11 was an inside job. She simply said that she has questions about building 7 and in this country (at least how it used to be) you are allowed to ask questions.

And if anyone wants to see the raw footage of O'Reilly's embarrasing attempt to provoke her, go here: http://www.rosie.com/blog/2007/10/27/last-night/

See for yourself the spin O'Reilly and his puppets put on it. I'm curious what Bill O'Reilly is hiding in his own closet that he needs to concentrate and focus attention away from himself and onto a vocal gay woman. He's got quite the obsession with her! Hmmmmmm....
