"If you want to be a good entertainer, you pretty much have to live a boring life," the "Only in My Dreams" singer says.
This despite publicity people encouraging her to add a little scandal to her life to help her career: "I'm like, 'You know what? Let the music speak for itself, and if it takes longer to get the attention, that's just fine.' [The scandalous life] is the easier road actually, that's what's scary about that," she tells ET.
Gibson credits her mother for being a stabilizing force in her life, and wishes that BRITNEY SPEARS had someone similar to help her through her own rough patch.
She says of the troubled pop star: "At this point, she's not in her right mind to make decisions for herself, and this is not her fault anymore. She has gotten away from the music, and, more importantly, she has gotten away from being a mom. There needs to be one person that is keyed into her mental wellbeing, and there is not that person around right now. I fear for her life at this point."
Gibson, who will be appearing at Harrah's in Atlantic City, May 6-24, is giving of her talent to other aspiring, young entertainers. She will oversee the vocal department at two two-week sessions at Camp Electric Youth, a performing arts summer day-camp geared towards serious performers ages 7 to 17, which she set up.
"I think on a business level -- and on an emotional level -- parents should learn how to care for a young performer, because being a young performer is a very intense and unique thing. It comes with its share of mental turmoil and different circumstances. I think that literally it should be taught, and we are going to do that as well. I set up this camp on my own. I want this to be really grassroots. It's been really scary and overwhelming in that regard."
“I’ve never made out with Paris Hilton so that’s false. False rumors!” Jenner declared at the Stoli Hotel Opening in Miami Wednesday.
The photos of the alleged hookup are from a New Year’s Eve party at LAX in Vegas, where Hilton is seen apparently kissing a man dressed in a gray t-shirt and baseball hat. In another picture from the same night Jenner is seen wearing a gray shirt and a baseball hat while hanging out with Hilton.
But Jenner maintains that there was no New Year’s lip-lock. “I swear to God I’ve never kissed Paris ever in my life,” he said.
Instead, he says he’s just close friends with the heiress. “We’re friends but never, never ever, ever was it a romantic thing, ever,” he said. “I would love to see proof of us kissing because that’s never happened. I swear.’
Asked if there is someone special in his life, Jenner was coy, saying just, “I’m not allowed to talk about it but yes I do have a girlfriend and no her name is not Lauren Conrad!” –Suzy Buckley
Do you believe Brody when he says he’s never kissed Paris?
Britney last hosted the event – at which Scandinavian brands are showcased – on Dec. 1. At that party, she was presented with a birthday cake and bumped into her one-time BFF Paris Hilton.
"Britney has said 'yes,' to hosting it," Claus Hjelmbak, the Danish businessman who founded the event, tells PEOPLE. "I am beyond excited because the experience she gave everyone in December was amazing. She absolutely made my event."
Hjelmbak, who was at Spears's side when she and Sam Lutfi went on an early morning shopping spree Jan. 17 at Kitson in L.A., told PEOPLE of the outing: "I know people will say it's weird she was shopping at 2 a.m., but [Kitson] said you guys can always come when you want. I just called the owner and said can we come over and they said 'sure.'"
Hjelmbak also has kind words for Lutfi, saying, "He's the most down-to-earth, easy-going guy. He doesn't have a bad bone in his body." As for Adnan Ghalib, he said, "I don't know him."
As for online reports claiming Spears has multiple personalities, Hjelmbak, who first met Britney in 2006, says, "I have only seen one person and that's the Britney I first met and seen every time. She's a very sweet person."
