Looks like Britney Spears is shedding more than her hair.

The newly bald “Toxic” singer is looking to sell the Beverly Hills house that she bought only two months ago, according to OK! magazine.

Spears bought the six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom 7,553 square-foot Tuscan villa on Dec. 11 for $7.2 million, moved in a month later, moved out on January 25, and now is looking to sell it for $7.5 million, reports the mag.

The quick sell is prompting some to question whether the singer needs to reel in her free-spending ways, but according to OK!, it was her sixteen-month-old son’s preference to stay put at Spears' Malibu house.

“Britney says that Preston preferred living at the Malibu property,” a “source close to Britney” told OK! “It has more land and huge garden — it’s a better environment for Britney to raise the boys.”

No cheers for J.Lo
Jennifer Lopez’s new film didn’t exactly get rave reviews at its premiere.

In fact, when “Bordertown” was screened at the Berlin International Film Festival, it was greeted with boos.

Lopez was a pro, smiling for the press and answering questions, despite what one report described “a howling pack of reporters” who were “turned off by ludicrous plot turns and wooden dialogue” as well as a “subtle-as-a-sledgehammer script.”

Notes from all over
Ralph Fiennes’ alleged hanky-panky in an airline lavatory didn’t surprise his ex-girlfriend. A friend of Sirin Lewenden told the London Daily Mail that she broke up with star of “The English Patient” because of his “wandering eye” and his “constant demands for what might best be described as unconventional sex.” . . .  Mel Gibson says that his children aren’t interested in having careers in film, and if he could do it all over again, neither would he. “They took one look at me and said, ‘Hell, I’m not doing that, it’s too hard.’ They don’t like the public aspect of it. They had to contend with that as children and they didn’t appreciate it,” Gibson told The Australian. “If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t choose it either. I’d be a doctor or chef.”  . . .  Angela Bassett didn’t have an easy relationship with her father. The “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” star saw her father only sporadically when she was growing up, but once she when once she got into college, made an effort to spend more time with him. The visits didn’t go well. Once, he offered her marijuana and, on another visit, instead of a fatherly kiss good-bye kiss, he stuck his tongue in her mouth, the star told More magazine.” When he did that, I was just angry, and angry at myself that I didn’t slap the [bleep] out of him,” Bassett told he mag. Instead, she decided to use the experience when she needed to conjure up anger in future acting gigs. “Use it;” she thought. “I can’t undo it.”
