Britney Spears is apparently planning to get married for the third time.
 
The singer has been desperate to tie the knot with boyfriend Jason Trawick after being bridesmaid at her assistant Brett Miller's wedding earlier this year.
 
Since then she has been going around telling pals that she wants a ring on her own finger by the end of 2011.
 
The star is already planning the occasion - she has been daydreaming about a low-key wedding on the beach in Hawaii with just close family and friends there on the big day.
 
Britney will be hoping it's third time lucky - her first marriage to childhood sweetheart Jason Alexander lasted just 55 hours.
 
The second, to backing dancer Kevin Federline, ended after two years with a bitter battle for custody of their two sons.
 
Friends say she is adamant her and Jason will start a family soon so that her two sons can have some more siblings.
 
"After all her ups and downs Brit is craving stability - hence her broodiness at the moment - and she just wants to settle down with Jason and do it all again the right way," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
 
"Now her album is out and her tour is almost sorted she feels like getting married again and having more children is the next step," the source added.

If everything falls into place then Lindsay Lohan will reportedly make her big screen comeback as a murder victim.
 
The 24-year-old has been offered the role of murdered actress Sharon Tate in an upcoming film about Charles Manson, reports the Daily Mail.
 
Brad Wyman, one of executives behind Monster starring Charlize Theron, is producing this movie called Eyes of a Dream.
 
Theron's role in Monster won her an Oscar, so it is hoping that the same magic can rub off on the troubled young actress.
 
Sharon Tate was an American actress who was married to film director Roman Polanski.
 
She was eight and a half months pregnant when she was murdered in her home with four other people by Charles Manson followers.

A nude sketch of Kate Winslet, which featured in her Oscar-winning movie Titanic, is expected to fetch as much as 16000 dollars at auction.
 
The illustration of Winslet reclining on a sofa and wearing nothing but a diamond necklace is sketched by Leonardo DiCaprio's artist character Jack Dawson in the 1997 epic film.
 
The movie's director James Cameron was actually responsible for the drawing, which features the initials of DiCaprio's character and the date April 14, 1912 - the day before the Titanic sank.
 
Cameron's artwork is expected to be the star lot at Premiere Props' memorabilia auction on Saturday and Sunday "This is a wonderful piece of memorabilia (from) one the biggest grossing films of all time," Contactmusic quoted a spokesperson for the firm as saying.

Elizabeth Taylor's love letters to go under the hammer

Sixty passionate love letters written by Elizabeth Taylor to her first love William Pawley are to be auctioned following the Hollywood legend's death last month.
 
The letters, penned in purple ink on pale pink notepaper, were written when she was just 17 and already a fast-rising film star, to Pawley, the 22-year-old son of a former US ambassador to Brazil.
 
Their little-known romance, during which they were briefly engaged in 1949, ended in heartbreak, reports the Daily Express.
 
But Elizabeth's letters, written at the height of their affair, give an insight into the starlet's transition to the eight-times married Oscar-winner and screen icon she eventually became.
 
Bobby Livingston, a spokesman for RR Auctions of Amherst, New Hampshire, revealed the letters were bought from William who is retired and living in Florida, before Elizabeth's death from congestive heart failure aged 79 on March 23.
 
He said: "Before her sad passing, we would have expected to fetch somewhere between $ 25000 and $35000.
 
"I now expect they will go for at least two to three times that because this is such a little documented period of her life," he added.
The online auction will take place between May 19 and 26.

Charlie Sheen booed off stage in Detroit

Charlie Sheen was booed off the stage during his show at Fox Theatre in Detroit.
 
According to sources inside the theatre, the majority of the audience heckled not only the actor, but his buddy Simon Rex, who came out and started rapping, reports TMZ.
 
Sheen started the show with a Q and A session - answering audience questions about everything from fave porn stars to crack cocaine. Then he played clips from a network interview he did and ripped it apart.
 
That went on for about 30 minutes and the crowd was initially cheering for the former Two and a Half Men actor. He even sent out a twitpic of the enthusiastic audience.
 
But then the crowd got ugly.
 
Charlie apparently called on Rex for backup sending him on stage to rap and when that backfired they played the new track, 'Winning', which Snoop Dogg recorded for Charlie.
 
That got the crowd fired up but when neither Snoop nor Sheen came out on stage they started booing again.
 
At that point most of the crowd started walking out and the house lights were turned on.
 
Sheen did come back on stage briefly and invited the people who stayed to move up closer to the stage but then he started complaining about his audio and walked off the stage.
