It didn't take long for K-Fed to find a use for that new black AmEx – he announced yesterday that he's started his own record label, Federation Records.

And it should come as no surprise to anyone that Federation's first release will be K-Fed's own album, "Playing With Fire."

His wife Britney's been spotted heading into the recording studio lately, but Kevin seems determined to beat her to the punch with his own hip-hop album. If you can't wait until October for "Playing With Fire"'s release, you'll have to make do for the time being with Kevin's MySpace page and his scheduled performance of the first single off his new album, "Lose Control," at the Teen Choice Awards on Aug. 20. He'll also be launching a new website on Sept. 5, and a "Lose Control" video is supposed to come out sometime in early September as well.

I realize, for the first time in my life, I'm a very nice guy." We'll have to take his word for it.

Actress Mischa Barton, who might be even more beloved in England than she is here, got herself a plum invite to Kensington Palace in London to dine with Lord Frederick Windsor, son of Prince Michael of Kent, who's a cousin of the Queen's. However, the "O.C." star reportedly raised royal eyebrows by tapping away at her Blackberry throughout the meal, according to the Daily Mail (via the IMdB).

The dashing Freddie, a fixture in the London gossip columns, had asked Mischa along to dinner, and she brought hairdresser pal Andy LeCompte. But Freddie was "offended" by Mischa's nonstop Blackberry abuse. No word from Barton's rep on the incident.
