WorldOfBritney.com reports that Britney Spears still remembers one of her most embarrassing moments, even though it happened at the very beginning of her monster music career. “When I first started out, and I first started giving interviews, I used to talk about how I had a crush on Ben Affleck or Brad Pitt – which was true at the time,” she recalls. “But then I would read all these stories in the magazines, and they made it sound like I was chasing Brad and Ben; one story even said I was trying to break up Brad Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston. They said all these hurtful things about me and my family. Then, when I actually met Ben Affleck, I was too embarrassed to even say anything. I learned a lesson about interviews, that’s for sure!”
John Mayer tells the Toronto Eye that the days of the “groupie” are over with. He explained, “Fifteen, 20 years ago, if you were offered a backstage pass you knew you were spending the night. Now when people are offered a backstage pass they think, ‘Maybe I can get a picture with him!’ There’s so much of a social stigma – and goddamn ’em for it – which prevents women from going balls-out.”
Even though he sounds upset about it, Mayer doesn’t sound like he’d partake at women who would throw themselves at him because of the internet. “It really all comes down to Internet message boards,” he explained. “The rapid transfer of information has killed fun for people on the road. I don’t want to have indiscriminate sex enough to justify reading some story on some Web site afterwards, where it’s seen as being as true as the New York Times.” Read more.

One’s A Better Singer, One’s A Better Dancer
June 18, 2003 – Darryl Morden of the Hollywood Reporter reviewed the Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday (June 16). Morden says the *NSYNC star’s “much-vaunted dancing was hardly the stuff of dazzle, while his voice, especially on the headset mic, was whiny and thin.” He adds that Aguilera “clearly has the stronger and more far-ranging voice but was also too often swathed in bloated arrangements, her own cadre of dancers and a load of costume changes.” The full story at hollywoodreporter.com has since been removed.

Justin & Christina Tour Has Always Been 45 Dates
June 17, 2003 – Contributed by ireallyknow: In the article titled ” Sales Trouble For ‘Stripped And Justified’ Tour” it says that the tour has been downsized from 60 dates. this is not true. There have always been only 45 dates and most are close to selling out. I don’t think Justin and Christina are in any trouble of failing. Justin had a show at The House of Blues in LA last night after his Staple Center performance…. it sold out in literally one minute.
A popbitch.com reader heard from a pal about a rather crude story involving an *NSYNC groupie. The girl “passed out in the band’s hotel suite after too much exertion,” but that wasn’t the end of the story. “The boys left her to sleep it off while they went out drinking,” the writer explained. “She was so twatted that as well as vomiting, she also projectile-diarrhea splattered the entire hotel room, and then groggily tried to clean it up. When they returned they found her passed out and completely covered in her own excrement.” So what did the *NSYNC guys do? “The digital video camera came out, and the resulting scat-fest was watched on the tour bus by band and crew for days afterwards.”
Groupies are dishing out dirt on the Backstreet Boys at the GroupieCentral.com message boards. ‘dont remember’ writes, “[Nick Carter] gets around ALOT and isnt very carful of who’s watching.

Yes, he’s a male slut, but at least he’s good at it!” Read more.

Following their one-night stand, she said his concert would be better if he talked to the audience.

Following the surprise wedding between Taylor Hanson and his girlfriend Natalie in Georgia, groupies are unleashing their claws on the situation that led the couple to the aisle. Yvette writes on the GroupieCentral.com message boards, “Island Records got the release from the family that quoted Taylor as saying ‘The wedding was just as we envisioned it, we were surrounded by our families and friends.’ Anyone who knows Taylor knows that is the BIGGEST FRICKIN’ LIE ON EARTH! For one, MANY of Taylor’s close friends were NOT invited. Why not? NONE OF THEM CAN STAND NATALIE! Would you invite a lynch mob to your wedding?! Plus, do any of you really think Taylor’s ideal wedding was to be a shotgun style, with no announcement because he (possibly) knocked up a dirty bi*ch like Natalie who is ruthless and underhanded enough to go to his parents and announce her pregnancy before going to Taylor himself?!”

Following a report on the GroupieCentral.com message board that Krist Novoselic had shared his account of Foo Fighter’s frontman Dave Grohl (his former Nirvana bandmate) making Christina Aguilera do a beer bong at a show earlier this year, a Van Nuys area groupie (based on the IP) going by the handle ‘va va voom’ claimed, “I know for a fact that she has hung out with Dave because I saw it with my own eyes. If they got it on once everyone left and they were all alone, I don’t know! I think they did…” Her charges only got more shocking from there.
