We're just guessing that Britney's K-Fed couldn't find any brands to product place in his newly released 'Lose Control' music video. That's the only explanation we can come up with for the sudden close up shot midway through the video of a dancer wearing a GoldenPalace.com t-shirt. It's perfect.

While it's been rumored for some time, a deal between Nike and Jennifer Aniston appears to be on the verge of signature. The deal, sources say, may be the largest sum ever paid by the sportswear company for a celebrity endorsement. The campaign is said to be international in scope and will, perhaps, include a Super Bowl 2007 spot. While Aniston may be paid a fortune for this deal, she says she will donate a large sum of it to Cancer charities of her choice.
Along with the imminent signing of Aniston, Nike is also working with Eminem who will design an autographed line of Air Max training shoes for Nike and which will be auctioned off for charity.
Among the many celebs the retailer has hooked up with, supposedly hip rapper Common, according to Animal, "The Gap couldn't have picked a better spokesperson to try and help sell their bland suburbanite t-shirts."

Copyranter thinks Gwyneth Paltrow is far too white for this Keep A Child Alive ad in which she dons African apparel above the headline "I Am African." And just so we're sure we understand his opinion, he writes, "Cheers to you that you support a very worthy cause. BUT, allow someone else to do the ads.
