Celibate Paris declares ‘sex is sacred’

Partying heiress Paris Hilton claims she’s been celibate lately.

Hilton — who reportedly has been dumped by her panty-less best friend, Britney Spears — had declared a while back that she was going to go boyfriendless, and insists she’s made good on that claim. When asked by a reporter how long it’s been since she’s had sex, Hilton said, “About six or seven months, I think. I don’t care,” reports the London Mirror. “I would rather just make out and kiss someone instead of sex.”

Hilton insists that she’s actually quite modest in that area. “I’ve only been in, like, two relationships and I just thought I’d like to be single,” Hilton declared. “Sex is sacred. People shouldn’t have sex unless they’re in an exclusive relationship anyway. I’d rather not do anything. Guys want you more when you don’t do it! Young girls should know that.”

Jackson says sayonara to TokyoMichael Jackson’s much-ballyhooed Christmas appearance in Tokyo has been nixed.

The singer was scheduled to meet and greet fans in the Japanese city’s Studio Coast on December 19, but his spokeswoman now says that the event won’t happen. Instead, he will appear at a “Fan Appreciation Day” in Tokyo in March, and some are saying that tickets sales were sluggish because of high prices.

The price of the tickets had elicited shock and some outrage among fans, with some tickets costing as much as $3,300 — for the opportunity to meet, greet and be photographed with the star; $1,600 bought merely the meet and greet. Eventually cheaper tickets costing about $425 were added, but outrage over the prices, which didn’t even include a performance, continued to grow.

“We want to be as inclusive as possible to all of Michael’s fans,”  Broderick Morris, CEO, Positive Productions, the company staging the event said in a statement, announcing the new event. Prices and the venue for that event have not been posted.

Notes from all overAnimal lover Stella McCartney reportedly is furious with Madonna after she was spotted wearing fur. As we reported, Madonna was seen wearing a chinchilla coat said to be worth $70,000. “Stella started off with a gentle lecturing, but she just seemed to get louder and louder. Madonna was trying to calm her down saying, ‘Oh, let’s change the subject’ but she wouldn’t let it go,” a source told the London Mirror. “Stella was ranting that it was murderous, and she started saying, ‘What would you do if someone took away your children and killed them to wear their skin?’” Madonna thought she could get off the hook explaining the coat was vintage and the critters long-dead, but McCartney was having none of it. ... Liza Minnelli’s eyebrows startled on-lookers the other day. The crooner’s once famously thick brows seemed to be tattooed on, say observers. ... Cameron Diaz says her favorite way to relax is to have sex. “Sex is the most amazing stress reliever,” Justin Timberlake’s gal told the London Sun. “I actually think it’s the best thing for everything! I think it should be 100 percent part of everyone’s life on a day-to-day basis. We’d all be a lot happier!”
