We're so happy to hear her sounding so at peace with her life! It was a long time coming!

In her interview with V Magazine, Britney Spears opened up about the price fame at such a young age had on her, the things written about her in the press, and how she deals with it differently now that she has her children!

She explained:

"I'm past all of that. I try to block it all out and not pay attention to anything they write about me in the magazines or online. I'm done with that. I have learned to always stay true to myself and never let what other people say about me change who I am. It's a really important lesson that took me a long time to learn. I think it's easier to let people in when you're younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children. A life away from my life. I don't think I thought about 'fame' when I was a child. I knew I wanted to perform and I knew I wanted to be on stage but I don't think I ever thought about fame or what comes with being famous. If not [her being destined to become famous], then God definitely has a strange sense of humor."

So well-spoken and grounded!

And we're glad that she has learned to be more careful about the people she lets into her life, and around the little ones!

We're glad to see you so content, Brit Brit!

So well-deserved, and it certainly shows in your work!

Keep it up!

This Does NOT Fill Us With Confidence, United Airlines

united grounds its 757 boeing fleet

Might be time to make the move to Delta…

United Airlines has grounded its entire fleet of Boeing 757 planes for "unscheduled maintenance."

Here's what United spokesman Rahsaan Johnson had to say about it:

"Specifically … United is performing follow-up maintenance checks starting today to the air data computers on its 96 Boeing 757s. All of the air data computers are fully functional. The checks are necessary as part of a modification process to the system."

Apparently, each check takes 60 to 90 minutes, and the fleet should be up-and-running again in 12 to 24 hours.

More from the FAA's Laura Brown:

"This is a voluntary action on United's part, and we will follow up as necessary."

Obvi we approve of airlines taking any AND ALL necessary measures to keep their planes in perfect working order, but it's a bit unsettling that this is an "unscheduled maintenance" and that it's putting their entire 757 fleet out of commission for as much as a day.

You're gonna lose a lot of business like that, United. Why is this happening all at once? How long have we been flying on potentially unsafe planes???

Thoughts?

Is Georgia May Out Of Control?

Filed under: DrugsModelsGeorgia Jagger

Looks like poppa Mick Jagger is having to tighten the reigns on his model daughter Georgia May Jagger.

After long nights of pAArtying and boozing it up and allegedly doing cocaine on her 18th birthday, Mick has grounded her!

Ouch!

Considering Georgia is still in school, coming down hard on the girl probably isn't so bad. But friends insist she's too smart to do drugs.

Riiight.

We're sure he's just doing this so his 18 year old doesn't do what he did in his youth.
