'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Is Britney Spears better than ever?

Britney Spears’ album "Femme Fatale" is out today, but some aren't that impressed. Critics are claiming that Britney hasn't fully recovered from her breakdown four years ago, and that her performances just aren't the same. But others say that’s nonsense – she’s doing just fine.

I think the singer is just getting her feet wet again, so the jury is still out. I think we need to give her a little time. I do wish Britney would do something a little different this time around to reflect where she is in her life. We know she can wear skimpy costumes and dance. But I want to see something different – maybe something more personal, more mature.

What do you think? Is Britney Spears better than ever? Post your comments below.

Matthew McConaughey: Am I a fun-loving guy? Yeah!

Matthew McConaughey: Am I a fun-loving guy? Yeah!

Image is everything in Hollywood, and thanks to his bongo-beating, oft-shirtless, live-it-up ways, it's easy to dismiss Matthew McConaughey as nothing but a party boy. Yet the actor admits that isn't too far from the truth.

"Do I think the image of me is a true picture of who I am? No, it's incomplete. But things about me that are out there — I'm not going to say they're false," the "Lincoln Lawyer" star tells the April issue of Esquire.

In fact, despite being happily partnered with Camila Alves and being the father of two children, the Texas native says he hasn't become completely domesticated.

"Am I a fun-loving guy, man? Who likes running around in the summer with his shirt off, man? Am I a guy who likes to hang out with his friends, and party and go to concerts and football games with his friends?" McConaughey asks. "Well, yeah! Yes, I am. Always have been. Always hopefully will be. You know?"

Poll shows some think Bieber's headed for rehab

Pop sensation Justin Bieber just turned 17, but some of us apparently don't see a bright future for the young star.

A new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll asked, "How do you envision Justin Bieber at the age of 30?" and 30 percent of Americans said they think he'll be in "celebrity rehab."

Before the Beliebers get too mad, there's also the 13 percent who predict that he'll still be playing packed stadiums, while another 18 percent think the Biebs will be married and living quietly.

Katie Holmes, Greg Kinnear on 'The Kennedys' controversy

After being dropped by the History Channel and lingering in limbo, "The Kennedys" miniseries will finally make its debut on the Reelz channel April 3.

At the Beverly Hills premiere last night, Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes, who play President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline, shared their thoughts on the controversial eight-part movie.

"I think that they did a great job writing this, and we approached this [as] a story about a family that was very powerful and also one that was very human," Holmes told CNN. "That's what we wanted to portray and we were all creating these characters."

Paltrow recently recorded a duet of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for "Glee" star Matthew Morrison's upcoming album, and says she has received "a lot of offers" to make a record of her own.

Paris Hilton and Lil Wayne bond over jail time

It turns out rapper Lil Wayne and hotel heiress Paris Hilton have more in common than one might think.

In fact, during the course of their Q&A in the April issue of Interview magazine, the duo bonded over having served jail time.

"For me it was OK, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts," said Wayne, who served eight months at New York's Rikers Island for a gun possession charge, on spending time in solitary confinement. "There were times when it was pretty tough to be by yourself, and to have no television, no sort of nothing. That was kind of tough. But I didn't have to be in there long. It was just a month. I was OK. I did fine."
