Todd Gold from People magazine was on Fox News earlier today where he got in a big diss against rival entertainment magazine Us Weekly. When asked by Lynda Vester if the two mags were at each other’s throats in relation to their competing Britney Spears stories, Gold said, “Well, we aren’t at each other’s throats, they’re more at our knees. You know, Britney’s been in the news lately and we both covered the same sort of territory. We cover celebrity landscapes there’s a huge difference. You know, and I’ll tell you because it’s really an interesting media story. The example is Britney talked to us — Britney talked to People magazine and she talked to me exclusively, we spent a lot of time together. She did not talk to Us. Their story doesn’t deliver what they promise and if you want another really good example, I asked her a couple weeks ago Us reported she was in a dance off at a club with Justin that made worldwide news. I asked Britney about that and she denied it ever happened. She said she’d never even been called to fact check that report. It is amazing to me that something like that happens. On the other hand we go to great lengths to fact check.” That he said was the reason she decided to talk with People, and not Us.

August 22, 2002 – WENN reports Justin has been repeatedly mistaken for actor Ryan Phillippe, by his own admission. “I was walking in the airport and this girl comes running up and she says, ‘Oh my God! I know who you are!’ And I’m like, ‘Aww that so sweet.’ I’m expecting her to start singing,” the *NSYNC star explains. “And she goes, ‘Can I have your autograph? You’re that dude from Cruel Intentions.’ Later, I was getting something to eat and this woman asks, ‘Will you sign this for me?’ And it was a picture of Ryan!”
