Just when you thought it was safe ...

Britney's sis has designs on the throne; Snoop Dogg's got new tricks.

Dust off your Spears fears. Britney's little sister has dynastic ambitions.

Eleven-year-old Jamie Lynn Spears says she's not satisfied with the kid-level acting she's done so far (Nickelodeon's "All That" and all that). Nope, she wants to make it big as a pop singer, too.

"I'll probably do a lot of acting first, then go to singing," she tells the Associated Press, explaining her master plan. "But I am going to definitely sing someday."

And she'd like our help in speeding her to the throne now occupied by her sister.

"When I do start singing, buy my album," she says.

Whatever happened to kids who said "please"?

Truth spoken here

"I would never describe myself as a serious actress."

-- Pamela Anderson, showing more self-awareness than you might think, to the British media.

Shopping with the Pitts

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have no trouble with the "we're just a normal couple" talk, but they haven't yet mastered the "we're just a normal couple" walk.

According to Sky News, the famous duo recently stopped into a home store in Beverly Hills to check out a few items. Unfortunately, their clever "normal couple" disguises -- hats and sunglasses -- didn't stop fellow patrons from figuring out who they were and mobbing the store, trapping Pitt and Aniston inside.

The LAPD was called in to escort the pair through the crowds and to their car.

Will someone please explain catalog shopping to Brad and Jen?

Rough life

"I just have to say that quitting the Boy Scouts was probably one of the most painful experiences I've ever had to endure."

-- Steven Spielberg on the difficulty of ditching his favorite organization for banning gays, speaking before the Human Rights Campaign.

Juicy bits

Looks like pot smoking isn't the only vice Snoop Dogg's shedding. The New York Daily News reports that during a party the rapper was hosting at a SoHo club the other night, he bypassed scads of free liquor and asked to drink only pure, simple H2O. Next thing you know, he'll be rapping about a soy beans and Bikram yoga.

I guess motherhood can put a crimp in a supermodel's lifestyle. The London Telegraph reports that Kate Moss and her baby daddy, Jefferson Hack, can't even go to a movie without being summoned back home to their newborn's side. The couple reportedly sneaked out to catch a flick three weeks after their baby girl, Lola, was born but abruptly left the film in the middle after getting what appeared to be an urgent call on their cellphone. Waaaaah!

Glasses and keys can be easy to misplace, but when 8-foot-long glasses and 4-foot-long door keys start vanishing, it's pretty clear something fishy's going on. Those and other large items -- with a total value estimated at $55,000 -- were reportedly stolen from the set of "Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat," starring Mike Myers. Police told the press they have no suspects, though one officer commented, "We have ruled out the Grinch." Everyone's a comedian.
