Britney Spears strapped to a gurney via en route to the hospital!
Britney Spears was rushed to hospital last night after collapsing from suspected drug abuse while caring for her children .

Police were called to Britney’s Beverly Hills home at 8pm after the 25-year-old star refused to return her sons, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James, to ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Officers found Britney to be “under the influence of an unknown substance”, and she was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in an ambulance where she is reportedly undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

Los Angeles Police Department officer Jason Lee said: “While officers were on the scene, they observed Ms. Spears under the influence of an unknown substance. She is now being taken in for an evaluation.”

Several police officers, fire engines, two ambulances and a police helicopter all appeared at the tumultuous scene.

An insider at L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center tells Usmagazine that nobody wanted to be Britney Spears’ monitor last night.

Spears was rushed to the hospital around 11 p.m. and was designated a “special needs” patient, meaning “they have either overdosed or tried to commit suicide,” the source says. (See her being wheeled on a stretcher here.)

When Britney arrived at the medical centre, she stuck two fingers up at waiting paparazzi but smiled as she was wheeled out of the ambulance.

One onlooker said: “Britney looked completely out of it, but still managed to flip off the photographers and smiled at the same time. She is just unbelievable.”

Jayden was also taken to the hospital by ambulance, although it is not clear if he needed medical treatment.

Sean was driven to Cedars-Sinai behind the two ambulances.

Kevin arrived at the hospital at 12:20 am this morning to see his ex-wife.

Britney’s father Jamie entered the hospital at 1:15am, despite the pair not having been seen together since spring last year.

OK! magazine’s timeline:
7 p.m.: K-Fed’s security team arrives to pick up boys Sean Preston and Jayden James and bring them back to their father’s house. When there is a delay in releasing the boys, Britney’s assistant, Carla, makes excuses for the pop star. However, it soon becomes clear that there is a problem.

At some point, 2-year-old Sean Preston is removed from the house, leaving only little Jayden inside with his mother.

8 p.m.: The police are notified of a custodial situation at Britney’s house and officers are dispatched to The Summit. But when they arrive, they find that the court-appointed monitor, who has been locked out of the house, is not in possession of the paperwork required to allow them to enter Britney’s house.

9:20 p.m.: K-Fed’s lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan arrives at The Summit with the required paperwork. He and five police cars enter the gated community and drive up to Britney’s house.

10:30 p.m.: More than a dozen police officers, as well as two ambulances and a handful of fire rescue trucks are now on the scene. Sometime before 11 p.m., Britney’s cousin Alli and Brit’s assistant Carla leave the house, leaving Brit alone with Jayden James.

11:45 p.m.: Britney is taken out of her home strapped to a gurney and placed into an ambulance, which is escorted by 13 police cars with sirens blaring to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, arriving at approximately 12:30 a.m. Jayden is brought to the hospital in a separate vehicle.
 

Is Your Makeup Aging You?

My first glimpse of the inevitable came when I noticed my favorite shimmery blush creasing above my cheekbone. It was around my birthday (I had just turned 28) when the changes started: I soon began to see the freckles across my face as irreversible sun damage, the crinkles around my eyes as permanent — not just a side effect of smiling. I felt like Meg Ryan freaking out about turning 40 in When Harry Met Sally: “It’s just sitting there like a big dead end,” she cries. I know: I’m not even 30, but I already feel I’m going downhill.

I’m not alone, of course. Whether it’s a new white hair or a brand-new wrinkle, the earliest signs of aging have a major impact on our self-confidence. “It’s our biological wiring,” says David Sarwer, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Human Appearance. “People want to look like they’re viable romantic or sexual partners, and fertility is at its peak from the late teens to mid-20s.” Extreme as it is to think of a late 20-something as being past her prime, there’s every good reason to start tweaking one’s makeup routine now, when it’s less about fun experimentation (flaming-red lips for clubbing, sparkling cheeks for a date) and more a matter of correction and restoration. “Teenagers wear makeup to feel out their womanhood. When they’re 13, they want to look 19,” explains makeup artist Paul Starr, who works with both Lindsay Lohan and Michelle Pfeiffer. “But then one day things shift, and women want to look younger.”

Baby-beauty-pageant contestants and novice models are among those rare birds who intentionally age themselves with heavy foundation, smoky eyes, and clumpy mascara. “We had to look older,” recalls the iconic model/actress Lauren Hutton. “We were wearing very expensive clothing that only older women could afford.” But if you’ve reached the age — and mileage — when you’re already taken seriously? Go for the tinted moisturizer.

“Unless you’re underage and trying to sneak in to a party, why would you wear makeup that hides your youth?” asks Chanel makeup artist Angela Levin, who works with the ageless Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston. Ironically, she adds, looking younger means ditching the makeup you used when you were actually young. “Now it’s about choosing sheer textures and applying with a light touch.”

“Too much powder can make a person look older, too,” observes party photographer and Glamour Girls author Patrick McMullan, who has watched the world’s most famous women grow up in front of his lens. “It’s particularly hideous at the end of the night. Heroin chic [heavy black liner and powdery white skin] might have looked very cool on a 19- or 16-year-old model, but on a 30-year-old woman, it just looked worn out.”

A dewy finish to the skin is more forgiving. “Cream formulas with moisture look softer and prettier,” says Starr. He suggests spot concealer instead of allover cover-ups, and blotting papers for a shiny forehead, nose, and chin. Powder is a no-no, except for the eyes, where cream formulas can settle into the crease of the lids. Instead of black-rimmed eyes, a neutral shadow and dark-chocolate pencil enhance without drawing attention to fine lines.

Always approach shimmer with caution, warns Hutton, who started her own makeup line when she couldn’t find products friendly to her over-40 complexion. “Formulas with shiny particles act like airport runway lights, illuminating every line, wrinkle, and pore,” she says. “Best for the under-25 set.” (Which reminds me of the pearly, light-diffusing lotion I recently slathered on around my eyes, making me look like a sleep-deprived possum.)

Be cautious, too, with contouring, which hollows out facial regions already losing their youthful plumpness. “There’s a lot of volume loss with age,” says NYC plastic surgeon Haideh Hirmand. Instead of shading, switch to highlighting. Using paler hues, accentuate under the brows for a mini lift, and dust a lighter blush along the cheekbone (carefully avoiding any crow’s-feet under the eyes) to plump cheeks. “Between ages 25 and 35, women have lost their baby fat and have grown into their looks,” Hirmand adds.

Let’s hear it for grown-up faces and beauty’s evolution. Says Starr: “Women want to look younger right around the time they start looking their best. They look amazing, but they miss it because they’re focusing only on what’s gone.” Whether or not this is my “best” beauty period, wearing sheer makeup that shows me off is starting to make sense. Why cover up? I’m staying in this sweet spot as long as possible. I’ll let you know how I feel at 35….

More court documents in the ongoing custody battle between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were released Thursday, which revealed some intimate details about their finances.

• Federline, earned more than a half million dollars in 2006, mainly from entertainment and endorsement deals – but minus business expenses, he only grossed $7,436 that year.

• Spears earns approximately $737,000 per month.

• Federline receives $15,000 a month in child support payments from his ex. (The amount may change, depending on how much more custodial time he ends up getting.) He is entitled to child support payments until Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, become adults, since Spears is the higher earner.

• The documents also reveal that Federline earned $3,300 in royalties in 2006 for his debut song “Popozao.”

As for expenses, the documents also show that the former couple had very different spending habits. Here is what Spears and Federline spent on a monthly average in 2006 on various items.

Britney’s Expenses:
• $102,000 on entertainment, gifts and vacation
• $49,267 on mortgage payments
• $16,000 on clothes
• $4,758 on eating out
• $2,500 on phone bills
Kevin’s Expenses:
• $5,000 on entertainment, gifts and vacation
• $7,500 on rent
• $2,000 on clothes
• $1,500 on eating out
• $750 on phone bills

On cue, A&E has pulled “On cue, A&E has pulled “Dog the Bounty Hunter” from the air just two days after Duane Chapman was heard on tape repeatedly using the word “nigger.” TMZ reports:

In evaluating the circumstances of the last few days, A&E has decided to take ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’ off the network’s schedule for the foreseeable future,” the network said in a statement Friday. “We hope that Mr. Chapman continues the healing process that he has begun.” Officials for the network said the series, one of the network’s top-rated programs, has not been canceled. Yet.”
