WWW.Celebrityclaptrap.Com; as Many as 200million People Have Started Weblogs - and Then Abandoned Them, According to a Recent Report


As many as 200million people have started weblogs - and then abandoned them, according to a recent report. Most people are suspected to have just run out of things to say, but surely the stars of showbusiness have such exciting lives that their blogs will always

be thrilling? Maybe not. Our selection of the error-filled ramblings

of the rich and famous are proof enough that celebrity blogs are

often as vacuous as their authors...

'I've got to go. My dog, Lacy, just got fixed and she's not acting herself.

I'm going to have Shabby Chic recover her bed and maybe that will lift her spirits!'

A lot of people think you should wait till you're older to have kids. I've had a career since I was 16, have traveled around the world & back and even kissed Madonna!

The only thing I haven't done is experience November 24, 2004 I'm just getting back from my honeymoon and it was absolutely breathtaking! This is the happiest I've ever been in my life . . .

What better time for a greatest hits album to come out? I can actually enjoy & reflect on my success. I may be disappointing some fans, but I don't think I'll do another tour for a couple of years. My priorities in life have change. Well, I've got to go. My dog, Lacy, just got fixed and she's not acting like herself! I'm going to have Shabby Chic [a US furniture shop] recover her bed and maybe that will lift her spirits!

Valentine's Day is around the corner and I am so grateful to have someone I love. I fall more and more in love with Kevin [Federline, her now ex-husband] everyday.

We've been away from each other for a week now and I think I'm losing my mind!

He's working a lot right now and I'm so happy for him. His Details cover is coming out in a little over a week and the pictures are so hot! Stay away girls! (he he) I have such a great surprise planned for Kevin on Valentine's Day. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day with the one you love.

But if you're single, just round up a group of your friends and grab some low-fat Blue Bell ice cream. It's the best!!

'I'm watching some men smoke crack!

February 17, 2007 Hello. Current mood: melancholy.

Busy, busy, busy, as usual. This week I have been from Chicago to NY to Philly, I did shows in all cities, then I did a TV show called Conan O'Brien in Manhattan.

I flew from NY to London on Tuesday night and arrived in London for the Brits on Wednesday morning.

I went to the Brits and lost all three I was nominated for, I knew that was going to be the case, all my categories were very tough.

Then I went out for a few drinks, assaulted some paparazzi with my stiletto and went to bed.

March 17, 2007 Yo, so its been a while, I haven't really had much to say.

Life is weird at the moment. Is it really important to break America?

If it is I have to write my life off for the next 9 months, playing the same gig, answering the same questions to different journalists and such, or go home sit on my boyfriend's sofa for a bit, then write a new album - I dunno what to do.

March 30, 2007 [latest blog] Current mood: accomplished. Whagwan peoples, I'm sitting on our tourbus in a car park in San Diego CA, and I am actually watching some men smoke crack, Emily and I have been here for a few hours and this is not the first group of people smoking crack we have seen.

Lindsay Lohan Hey everyone!!! Wassssssssup?
