Music Notes: Brad Pitt Is No P.Diddy

You can call him an international film star, a sex symbol or Jennifer Aniston's husband. Just don't call Brad Pitt Puff Daddy.

It was recently reported that the actor was developing a fashion line based on his own style, but men who are interested in looking more like the star will be disappointed. He firmly denies being involved in such an endeavor.

"I have no interest in producing a B. Pitty clothing line, based upon my alleged style," Pitt said in a statement. Sean "P. Diddy" Comb's empire includes his Sean John clothing line.

Pitt was apparently considering working as a silent partner in a clothing line from his designer Todd Shemarya, but changed his mind.

Britney: The Video Game

Britney Spears wants to make sure her fans get a good look at her from all sides.

Her upcoming Playstation video game, which is set at one of her concerts, is being touted as the first such DVD to give users a 360-degree view of one of her performances.

"The viewer is being placed in the center of the action," said Paul Cha, whose company Enroute provided the technology for the game.

"She wanted to bring the fans to an experience which was not possible by any [other] means," he said. "So she said, 'Wouldn't it [be] really cool to show something right there, and be part of the whole act?'"

Cha had the enviable job of following her around to produce the new game. "I followed her around for about two weeks at her tour and so I spent numerous amounts of time with her in figuring out how to play to the camera."

George has co-written the Karma Cookbook with his friend Dragana G. Brown, who introduced him to the diet. The book is due out June 14.
