Meet Howie Day, Britney’s boyfriend of the week. Howie Day is mostly known for the song “Collide,” which has been played on every single WB show. Before his days being compared to Ashlee Simpson’s ex, Ryan Cabrera (they look a lot alike), I knew him from playing the college coffee-shop circuit. I think he’s tremendously talented as a solo artist, but his recent arrests – in 2004 for locking a woman in his tour bus when she repelled his sexual advances, and again in 2005 in Boston for being drunk and abusive on an airplane – have given him more street cred than K-fed. Cheers to you, Howie!
