With her private life and public persona firmly back on track and a successful world tour still going strong after long eight months, pop princess Britney Spears is said to be happy, healthy and ready to take her next big step — a walk down the aisle with ever-present manager-boyfriend Jason Trawick.
“Britney said she does not have a doubt in her mind that she wants to spend the rest of her life with Jason,” one insider revealed to OK! magazine. “She has already discussed marriage with him, and they are both excited about a romantic wedding.”
Well, that mutual excitement part is where opinions differ. While a News.com.au report supports the case for the singer’s enthusiasm, it portrays Trawick as a man with no interest in hearing wedding bells any time soon.
According to the Australian publication, an impatient Spears officially proposed last week, but Trawick refused to fast track his romance with the pop star. Allegedly the matrimonial setback is a disappointment, but it isn’t the first for Spears.
“She is in love with the idea of marriage,” a source explained. “She has been married only twice, but has proposed to many more.”
Lindsay Lohan says ‘no’ to rehab, ‘yes’ to counseling
Despite her father’s so-called best efforts to get her into rehab, which for some inexplicable reason included the release of tell-all family phone calls , Lindsay Lohan has decided to get help on her own terms in the form of counseling sessions.
Slideshow: Evolution of Lindsay Lohan “She goes two, sometimes three times a week,” a friend of the sometimes-actress told Life & Style. “This is not a program or substance abuse counselor or police officer watching over her; it's someone to talk to in a confidential state.”
According the source, the mentor-like meetings not only give LiLo a sounding board, but also provide the 23-year-old with a starting point to approach bigger issues.
“She knows, and everyone knows, this is a huge stepping-stone for her — get in there, talk to someone, figure out what's going on and then try to fix it,” the source said. “First comes the diagnosis.”
Mariah Carey’s latest diva display
Singer-actress Mariah Carey stands accused of a particularly excessive diva display during a recent appearance on British television.
Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings “While Mariah was very nice, the amount of people she had in her entourage was hilarious,” GMTV presenter Kate Garraway wrote in New! Magazine. “They outnumbered the entire GMTV crew! She had two people to lower her on to the GMTV sofa, in case her dress got crushed, one person to walk in front of her backwards at all times in case she fell over and several people behind the camera making sure she was going to be filmed from the right angle!”

But it’s a different story from Camp Carey. Sort of.
“(The claims are a) clear, gross exaggeration,” a spokesperson said in a statement issued to the Daily Mail. “With regards to the ‘entourage,’ every star of Mariah’s caliber is surrounded by a working team, and Mariah doesn't actually have any more people working with her than any other major star.”
Dish on the fly
She’s only 16 months old, but Sunday Rose Urban already has big boots to fill. It’s seems Daddy, aka country music star Keith Urban, imagines his little girl following his lead. “(Sunday’s) got some pipes,” he said in a quote published in Us Weekly. “I think she sounds quite musical. I sit at the piano with her in the morning and we mash the keys together.” Aw. … Miley Cyrus didn’t need to go incognito “Hannah Montana”-style to avoid getting recognized during a recent stop at New York’s Pop Burger. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, a blissfully unaware counter manager stunned Cyrus by asking for her name to mark her order. “Are you serious? You don't recognize me? I'm Miley Cyrus,” the 17-year-old was said to reply. “That's nice for you,” the manager shot back. “Here is your order. Have a good day.”
