April 30, 2001 - Shelly Kearns
addressed breast implant rumors that have been cast against both her daughter
Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. Shelly said on her LiveDaily message
board, "When the rumor about Britney popped up, so did the one about Christina,
and it still floats around to this day, as you can see. I think Star magazine
originally made up the story, printing that she had it done in LA by some
famous surgeon or something, during Thanksgiving vacation. In the real
world, Jim and I and the whole family--stepkids and family friend included--spent
the whole time in New York with Christina!" Shelly
also added, "Of course it's unfair and bugs both Lynne [Spears] and I,
but after awhile you just learn to raise your eyebrows a bit, then shake
your head and ignore them." Read more.

people you are referring to just happen to be your dancers, make-up artists
and hairdressers. I mean... I may be missing something here, but aren't
these people on your payroll?!" Manson also added, "Rumour has it from
numerous and decidedly reliable sources that you are an absolute C***."
