Britney Spears is really into Kabbalah — even though she doesn’t, like, really understand it all.
“I read the Kabbalah books and I meditate on them,” she says, according to Elle magazine. “They are all in Hebrew. I don’t understand everything. But it’s kind of OK that you don’t.”

Heather Mills — who, like her hubby, is a staunch animal rights supporter — is preparing to launch a protest of the fashion chain outside its corporate headquarters in Manhattan next week, according a source, who says that Heather will be calling for a boycott of the preppy clothing chain. “J.

Mills will be in the U.S. to be honored by animal rights group PETA at a star-studded bash in Hollywood on Saturday, and in a statement McCartney gushes about his activist wife: “I could have been attracted to women who didn’t think like that, who just like to have steak all the time, but I’ve been very lucky. Heather is a strong woman, she’s unstoppable against cruelty”

Cameron Diaz says that the tabloid reports on her and sweetie Justin Timberlake don’t hurt them. “It’s funny. We get these things every few days where one magazine is saying we’re breaking up and the other magazine is saying that we’re moving in together,” the Charlie’s Angels star told a reporter. “Then another magazine says we’re getting married next weekend. But we know what the truth is. It doesn’t hurt us.” That hasn’t stopped them, however, from suing. . . . Heath Ledger is mulling a move from Los Angeles to Italy with his pregnant girlfriend Michelle Williams. “I have kind of been living out of bags for the past 13 years. I will just stick to that,” Ledger said, according to IOL.com. “Home is, like, Earth. I don’t care where I land. I am actually thinking of going to live in Italy. The food and wine are great there. We have a few places up our sleeves. I would much rather work in Europe than America.”
