Britney Plays with Pap on New Year's?

1/2/2008 9:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you can't beat 'em -- hang with 'em!

That, apparently, was Britney Spears' first mantra for 2008, as she spent the evening with her two boys, a court-appointed monitor, and paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, reports OK!. The quintet chilled at a "private beachfront residence near Dana Point."

Ghalib was the agency photog who stayed with Brit in a Beverly Hills hotel room late-night last week, prompting people to ask just exactly what a lensman and a disasteress do in a hotel room at all hours.

McCartney Gets Vessels Unclogged


It can't help to be stuck in an ugly divorce battle, and now Paul McCartney is suffering enough to have heart surgery, according to reports from the UK.

According to the Mail, Sir Paul had a coronary angioplasty at the London Clinic recently to help unclog his arteries. He recovered quickly and sufficiently enough to be able to perform a duet with Kylie Minogue on New Year's Eve.

"He has always been in exceptional health, which is remarkable when you think of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle he once had," says a friend.

Party Favors: Eddie Murphy Weds ... Jessica Going Country ... SF Mayor Engaged


Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds got hitched on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia, People reports. Murphy wore a cream suit and vest and reportedly did not give any transsexual prostitutes a ride ... Jessica Simpson is -- God help us -- recording a country album, says Billboard, which, she explains, is appropriate as she is "a country girl." No word on whether she'll cover any Dolly Parton tunes. ... San Francisco's Mayor Gavin Newsom got engaged to actress Jennifer Siebel over the weekend in Hawaii. It'll be hizzoner's second marriage, Siebel's first.

Britney starts the new year just like the last year being Britney. Only a matter of time before something stupid happens. I Can't believe Tracy Edmonds married Eddie Murphy after all the crap he's done last year!!

Hopefully Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds will make better productions as a team and leave the Norbit and Who's Your Caddy? type films in the past.

So, for Britney this is what it comes down to, to see the new year in with a court mandated babysitter to watch over her in case she manics up or deprsses down and does something potentially dangerous to her little boys because she hasn't the self-awareness to realize she's not the only one important in this world.

And because she no longer has any family or friends to hang with she's adopted a paparazzi. Yeah, this sounds about right.

How sad. How pathetic.

Apparently the guy didn't hear Britney when she said "Go back to your own country" Whatever suits her for the moment I guess. And Eddie Murphy.........don't any celebs think they can go through life without getting married constantly?!

I THINK BRITNEY ROCKS    

At least Britney is with her appointed monitor to keep the children safe to where Kevin can't say anything damaging about Britneys parenting. It's better that the boys were with Britney rather than Kevin who will be smoking pot with his buddies, or leaving the kids with his nanny. It amazes me for a known pot smoker why he's never tested or the kids for that matter.

Maybe Brit Brit likes the pap and wants him to be her boyfriend. Hopefully he will luck up and get her to marry him and birth him some babies for which he can later get child support.

Jessica needs to move to Nashville to record that album! Far away from Dallas, Romo, and ME!! Well atleast Adnan wasn't Brits drug dealer like I thought. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Sir Paul.

As for Paul McCartney, well, I've always been a Beatle fan, have appreciated Paul's post-Beatle work, especially early Wings stuff. I think the guy's a brilliant musician and songwriter.

The heart business, well, Paul's been an avowed vegetarian since he married Linda, dunno if munchess on critters now since Linda's gone, but his heart surgery and the fact Paul does look his age just shows that even vegetarians are subject to the same aging travesties as the rest of us. In watching veggies I've noted, in fact, they often look worse than those who eat a balanced diet of all things.

Well, that aside, hope ya feel better Paulie...

YEAH YEAH YEAH!

For the sake of Brit's kids would someone please explain the "six month" rule to her. You don't introduce your kids to whoever your dating/sleeping with until you're sure they're going to be around for awhile. I think if we can find a way to turn off the raging banjo music in her head, everything will be much much better.
