ANGELINA JOLIE NEARLY CAUSES RIOT: ANGELINA JOLIE'S humanitarian visit to Tunisia yesterday almost caused a riot. Apparently the Libyan refugees she came to visit aren't as out of touch with pop culture as you'd think.
A photographer for the X17Online website reports the refugees were so excited to see the her, they began chanting, "Angelina Jolie, we want to die for you!" The photog adds, "The people were beyond excited to see her. The crowd was closing in on her and her security detail. It was intense."
Things got so out of hand the U.N. Goodwill Ambassador was forced to cut the visit short. Maybe they thought she was there to adopt one of them!!!???
Speaking of Jolie ... the new tatt on her left arm has many wondering if it means she's secretly adopted another child.
WHY BRITNEY HAS PACKED ON THE POUNDS: BRITNEY SPEARS ought to be on top of the world what with a new #1 C.D. and tour about to get underway, but instead, she’s packed on 30 pounds … the heaviest she’s ever been.And that’s the real reason she seemed listless and couldn’t keep up with her dancers during a 3-song set for “Good Morning America” the other week.
One insider says her weight gain is partly because of depression, drinking and junk food. But the main source is her unhappiness with the court-ordered control her father still has over her life. Brit was hoping to be freed of it this year, but when she found out that wasn’t happening, she started packing on the pounds.
