Britney Spears just shot a video in London, and the local government is unhappy that she acted out an armed robbery. In the clip, she and boyfriend Jason Trawick hold up a store at gunpoint. A Hackney council member says: “I think she should apologize and make a sizeable donation to a Hackney charity that deals with young people for the rudeness and damage she’s done to this community.” And! “In this case we did not agree that a replica gun could be used at Stoke Newington Town Hall and we are disappointed.” Obviously the video shoot interrupted a busy shhhhhedule of monocle-dropping and tea sipping.

Ellen DeGeneres has a segment on her show called “Auto Incorrect.” It is strikingly similar to the web site Damn You Auto Correct. In fact, two out of three examples on Ellen’s show were texts included in the site’s book. The creator of the site (and author of the book), Jillian Madison, says: “To be clear, I’m a huge fan of Ellen! I’m not boycotting her show or saying she’s the sole person responsible or anything stupid like that. I just don’t think it’s fair to use content from a website without credit.” [HuffPo]

Hey, remember the wedding of the century? Prince William says his grandmother The Queen helped with the guest list, and not in the way you think. Apparently Wills was handed a list of 777 people to invite — dignitaries and the like — “And not one person I knew.” So he called his gran. “I rang her up and said ‘Do we need to be doing this?’ And she said, ‘No. Start with your friends first and then go from there.’ And she told me to bin the list.” [People]

  • “I’m dying to be a full-time action movie heroine because the great thing about action is that you don’t have to act. All you have to do is go from A to B as proficiently as possible. It’s much harder to do a long speech from ‘the Tempest’ than a bit of action. You might get a bit bruised and so forth, but taking a few painkillers sorts that out.” — Helen Mirren. [Contact Music]
