Entertainment behind the scenes
Mommy, what’s a threesome?
The former Disney Channel starlet has just released a new single, “3,” which may be more appropriate for the Playboy Mansion than the Mouse House.
“Three is a charm, Two is not the same, I don’t see the harm, So are you game?” she playfully asks at one point. You can listen to the song here.
The slick ditty should get the kids out on the dance floors, but there’s even something in there for old folkies, since Spears tosses in a head-scratching reference to “Peter, Paul and Mary.” The song was produced and co-written by Swedish hitmaker Max Martin (“… Baby One More Time”), so it’s possible the 27-year-old singer might consider them three random names.
It's hard to watch France's political and cultural elite rush to support filmmaker Roman Polanski against extradition to the United States on a decades-old sex charge and not wonder exactly how they interpret the national motto "liberté, égalité, fraternité." It's tempting to ask whether they're defending the liberty to break the law and skip town, respecting the equality of all before the law and championing a brotherhood of artists who can do no wrong.

Here in Paris, Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner declared the arrest was "a bit sinister ... frankly, (arresting) a man of such talent recognised around the world, recognised in the country where he was arrested -- that's not very nice." He and his Polish counterpart have written to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the issue. Culture Minister Frédéric Mitterrand said "just as there is a generous America that we like, there's also an America that scares us, and that's the America that has just shown us its face." Directors, actors and intellectuals have been signing a petition demanding Polanski's immediate release.
Kate Winslet, who is nominated for an Oscar for best actress in ”The Reader,” has been happy to take her clothes off for the sake of her art.
But those days may be over.
“I think I won’t do it again: a) I can’t keep getting away with it, and b) I don’t want to become ‘that actress who always gets her kit off,’” Winslet told Time magazine, in a profile that ran on its website on Thursday.
“Sex and the City’s” Samantha Jones is a sexually confident public relations executive who can get almost any man she wants — and playing her helped Kim Cattrall survive her 40′s.
At age 41 Cattrall took on the role of Jones, who during the six seasons of the U.S. cable television series had countless nude sex scenes.
“She helped me get through my 40′s,” she said ahead of the worldwide release of the “Sex and the City” film this week, four years after the TV series ended.
“Actresses especially, they always accuse Hollywood of ageism, but I found that I was doing that to myself because I was really questioning at the age of 41 if I could indeed play a woman who was that sexual,” Cattrall said.
“Could I still make the vamp real? I’m not kidding you, this was a true concern of mine,” she said of the role for which she won a Golden Globe.
And with Jones finally owning up to, and celebrating, turning 50 in the Hollywood version of “Sex and the City,” 51-year-old Cattrall said “it really gives me a lot of hope for the next decade.”
“Men are driven by sex,” Oliver was reported as saying at the annual Hay-on-Wye book festival in Wales. ”So the best way for women to get their men into the kitchen would be to stop having sex with them until they start to cook,” he told the Sunday Times of London.
