Jenna Jameson Wants Porn Name Made Official

She may have retired from starring in adult-only films, but Jenna Jameson wants the world to officially remember her for her iconic porn princess name. Earlier this week the knocked-up starlet filed legal papers to become "Jenna Jameson" and permanently move on from her birth name, Jenna Marie Massoli.

When deciding to enter the adult industry many years ago, Jenna reportedly came across "Jameson" in the phone book and went with it as her stage name after her brother verified the choice by saying "I’m drinking it [Jameson whiskey] right now."

Britney Pulls Out Of Virgin Mary Role In Upcoming Film

Late last year, French film Producer Philippe Rebboah (whose most recent credit is as an associate producer on Amy Redford’s indie film "The Guitar") made headlines by announcing his intention to cast the then chaotic Britney Spears in his upcoming satire "Sweet Baby Jesus."

Production is set to start rolling in Bethlehem, Md., in January — but what happened to the pop princess?

"Britney read the script and she really liked it and really wanted to play the role of Mary," Rebboah told Tarts. "She isn't as scandalous in Europe as she is in the States, and I knew she would do a good job, but [people] were so against it and she was pressured. Then she ran into all the trouble with her family so we mutually decided the timing wasn’t right."

The 1970s film centers around a pregnant 19-year-old who is unsure of her baby's paternity and goes into labor on Christmas Eve in Bethlehem, Md., amid speculation that the birth is Jesus Christ's second coming. Drew Barrymore’s ex-husband Tom Green has just signed on to play Mary's boyfriend "Joe" and will star alongside comedic actress Lily Tomlin and Pierce Brosnan’s son, Sean Brosnan.

But replacing Spears put serious delays on production and the decision-makers have now decided to go with a "real" actress as opposed to a pop personality, 22-year-old rising starlet Alison Pill, who is set to make waves when "Milk" is released this month.

But wait! There is still a chance Miss Spears will still be part of the immaculate film conception.

"Britney was so touched by the script, so we are in talks about having her write and perform the closing number," Rebboah added. "Music of the '70s is a real focus in the film. We don’t want her to do anything religious, but something that captures the beauty of the story."

Britney And Justin Duet With Madonna - Separately

Speaking of beauty and music, "Mousekeeters" and former flames Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake both made last-minute surprise appearances on stage with Madonna during her "Sticky & Sweet" concert in Los Angeles on Thursday night. Sadly Brit and JT didn't make music together — but the crowd was far from disappointed.

See photos of last night's concert.

Addressing the crowd only with the now famous words "It's Britney, Bitch," Spears sent Dodger Stadium into a frenzy when she performed Madge's old-school hit "Oops, I Didn't Know I Wasn't Suppose to Talk About Sex" while donning sexy black pants and a white tuxedo.

Thankfully, Brit has learned from the wardrobe mistake she made the last time she performed live (2007 MTV VMAs) and on this occasion, she skipped out on showing off too many dance moves.

Justin Timberlake later took to the stage for a live rendition of "Four Minutes" with Madonna, causing an electrifying uproar not only from the ground floor but the green room as well.

Pop Tarts spies spotted a slew of stars such as Lindsay Lohan (without girlfriend Samantha Ronson), Lucy Liu, Elizabeth Banks, Heidi Klum, Donald Sutherland, Ryan Seacrest and Mila Kunis livin' it up in the green room after the show and gushing among each other how hot Madonna was and how Britney and JT too nailed it.

While the Queen of Pop's latest album, "Hard Candy," didn't live up to her high-selling reputation, ticket sales for her show have been selling strong all year and today's announcement of two very special cameos guaranteed a sold-out stadium with a record number of desperados lurking around outside.

Oh and while Britney was busy doing her thing in L.A., the reformed rehabber won two MTV Europe Music Awards — one for Album of the Year and the other for Act of 2008. You go, girl!

Criss Angel Show Bombing In Vegas

He may have scored a new lady in Holly Madison, but it looks as though the "Mindfreak" magician isn’t winning any new fans. Tarts has been told by several peeps that the only thing magically disappearing during Criss Angel’s new collaboration with Cirque du Soleil's "Believe" is the audience.

The show officially premiered last Friday, but even through the preview runs the performance garnered quite a few boos and hisses and a lot of people have reportedly been getting up and leaving. We’ve even been flooded with complaints that Criss’ New Jersey accent makes it hard to hear.

"It was quite possibly the worst show I have ever seen," one audience member said. "It’s boring. I’ve seen nudie shows with better production value. I was embarrassed for him." Ouch.

Angel doesn’t seem to be letting the not-so-rave reviews hamper his happiness as he and Holly hit up PURE in Sin City on Tuesday night. According to an eyewitness, the twosome arrived around midnight and clung to each other on the plush VIP beds until the early hours. …
