NO DOUBT, CHICKS JOIN SUPER BOWL
NO DOUBT and the DIXIE CHICKS will join SHANIA TWAIN as performers at Super Bowl
XXXVII on January 26th in San Diego. No Doubt will play during the halftime show
while the Chicks will sing the national anthem before kick-off. "Anyone who
tells you there's no pressure to sing the national anthem live to one of the
biggest television audiences on the planet is not telling the truth," said the
CHICKS' EMILY ROBISON. "I'm a little nervous but we're very excited and honored
for the privilege."
BRITNEY LOVES JUSTIN
Though JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE took a shot at BRITNEY SPEARS in his new single ("Cry
Me a River") and video, both former Mouseketeers claim to love each other,
leading some to speculate at an impending reconciliation, according to the new
issue of "Us Weekly." "When we were together it was bliss, like something from a
damn fairy tale," Timberlake recently told Rolling Stone. "I really do still
love that girl." And Spears, in an exclusive interview with "Us Weekly," said,
"I'm very touched that he still loves me. There's a part of me that will always
love Justin too because he was my first love."

label. Mottola took the helm of Sony in 1988, and oversaw the development of
artists including MARIAH CAREY (his ex-wife), JENNIFER LOPEZ and numerous
others. "I have been thinking about taking up this new challenge for about a
year," Mottola said. "I am thrilled that I will continue my long-standing
relationship with Sony to create a company that I believe will become a
blueprint for the music business in the coming years."
ROBINSON SMOKES WITH HOOKAH

in Baltimore. The four-piece band, which formed after the Crowes went on hiatus
two years ago, *******s drummer BILL DOBROW, bassist FIONN O'LOCHLAINN and MOKE

Robinson told Rolling Stone of the Crowes. "Now I can branch out and do things
we might not have done, more poppy things."
