Demi Moore 51 and fabulous

Twenty-year-olds could learn a lot from Demi Moore. At 51, she has really kept it together. The actress rocked a bikini in Mexico on New Year’s break, hanging with a rocker, not an actor, for a change. Sean Friday is the drummer for the L.A. band Dead Sara ( Weatherman) and he’s got tattoos all over and seems to adore her as he should. Meanwhile, Moore’s ex Bruce Willis is a few months away from being a new dad with wife Emma Heming; it’ll be his second child with the model.

Keeping trim

After dating Eric Johnson for almost four years, Jessica Simpson is finally ready to say “I do” to the father of her two children. “The new year will definitely bring on the wedding bells. . . I think it's about time,” Simpson said in a recent Weight Watchers video. “Knowing that I have the wedding coming up is an incentive to stay on Weight Watchers, count my points and stay in the gym. . . When you see my dress, you’ll know.”

Save your money

Though she has done a good job of staying out of trouble the past few years, Britney Spears has managed to rile her die-hard fans. The singer’s two-year Piece of Me show has kicked off in Vegas, and apparently, the VIP package is no deal. Pay $2,500, and you sit in the front row and get a mini meet and greet with Spears, free parking and other perks. If it sounds too good, it probably is. “Fans were told before the meet-and-greet that they were not to hug or touch Britney without her permission, and they weren’t allowed to bring her any gifts,” an insider told RadarOnline. “And then once they finally got to meet her it was like smile, take a photo, goodbye. Each person literally got like three seconds with her.” Worse: “She barely spoke. She just smiled and nodded and said ‘Thank you’ a lot.”

Sex-tape follies

Rapper 50 Cent has lost a bid to end a Florida woman’s lawsuit over a sex video posted online with him edited into it as a wig-wearing narrator. A New York judge rebuffed the rapper’s request to dismiss Lastonia Leviston’s claim.

The lawsuit concerns a videotape Leviston made with a boyfriend in 2008. The judge’s decision says the boyfriend later provided the tape to 50 Cent without Leviston’s permission. The rapper used the footage to make a video featuring himself as a character named Pimpin' Curly. He says he wasn’t responsible for the video’s 2009 release. But he says it was legally fair to use the images. The woman’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
