Glastonbury’s Got 99 Problems, Jay-Z Ain’t One (But Amy Is)

Despite early bad weather, the Glastonbury Festival rolled on this weekend with celebrity fans including Kate Moss and Kelly Osbourne out to see performers like John Mayer, Jay-Z and so many more.

Amy Winehouse found a way to make new headlines with her despicable behavior including punching a fan in the middle of her performance — more on that and video over on UK Pop — and insulting Kanye on stage. On a brighter note, Jay-Z killed it as the headliner with Beyonce watching from the audience. After Noel Gallagher of Oasis made some disparaging comments about Jay headlining the festival, the rapper was under a lot of pressure to perform. Instead, he took the stage, guitar in hand, and started off his set by singing “Wonderwall” into “99 Problems.” Amazing, check out the video below — so fun and the perfect way to win over some new fans overseas.

Justin Takes His Shoes and His Lady Out on the Town

Even with a bag in front of her face, Jessica Biel couldn’t hide her laughter leaving a Friday night dinner date with Justin Timberlake at Cut in LA. The couple known for looking grumpy has been all smiles since his return to LA last week after traveling to Paris as the face of Givenchy perfumes. It’s nice to see he and Jessica seeming happier than ever, even if we don’t always agree with his choices in footwear.

Jennifer Aniston Waits Backstage at John Mayer Concert

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer continued to keep their romance firmly off the radar Saturday.

Slipping unnoticed into the musician’s backstage area at the Hard Rock Calling festival in London’s Hyde Park, Aniston stood quietly in the wings while the “Georgia Calling” singer ran through a 45-minute set in front of an audience of ten of thousands.

But the actress wasn’t just there to lend moral support: wearing a black-and-white floral halter-neck top and faded flared jeans, Aniston busily snapped away with her camera to record Mayer’s on-stage performance.

It was the second time in two days that Aniston had joined Mayer for one of his gigs. On Friday, she took a seat in the upper level of the gritty south London venue, the Brixton Academy, before leaving with Mayer at around 11:30 p.m.

Earlier this week, the couple united in Amsterdam, where she was promoting the upcoming Marley and Me (with Owen Wilson) and Mayer was performing.

In keeping with the low-key theme of her London visit, she n…

Don’t Mess With the Winehouse?

Fans, beware. Here comes Amy Winehouse’s latest hit.

Video has surfaced showing the 24-year-old soul diva getting into a scuffle with a concergoer during her performance at Britain’s Glastonbury music festival on Saturday.

The Grammy-winning singer appears to jab her elbow at the crowd while singing “Rehab” in the mosh pit. Seconds later, Winehouse angrily throws a couple punches.

Asked about the incident, Winehouse’s rep said, “The ‘lashing out’ was when someone tried to grab her hair and she reacted.”

What do you think? Did a fan get too close or did Amy make the first move?

Miley Cyrus: Photo Controversy 'Still Hurts'

Miley Cyrus says she was "embarrassed" by the brouhaha earlier this year over her semi-clothed Vanity Fair photos but thinks her fans realize that she's only human.

"I don't think people will look at me any differently, because they're like, 'You know what, I'm going to do stupid stuff too, and I'm going to make mistakes, and that's fine,'" Cyrus, 15, tells Billboard. "It still hurts when I think about it – but you know what, it doesn't mean that you can't move on."

The Hannah Montana star says fans can expect a very "grown-up" album in Breakout, in stores July 22.

"My last one, Meet Miley Cyrus, was more just meeting me, finding out who I am, and here it's more getting in depth of what's been going on in my life in the past year."

Cyrus wrote all but two of the songs herself.

"I just hope this record showcases that – more than anything – I'm a writer," she says.

30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy in Contention for Emmy Awards

Could 30 Rock pick up the Emmy for outstanding comedy series for the second year in a row?

The final nominations will not be announced for another three weeks – but the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has offered a preview in advance of the July 17 announcement. In an unprecedented move, the organization revealed the top 10 finalists in this year's comedy and drama competition, TV Week is reporting.

Comedies in consideration include: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Family Guy, Flight of the Conchords, The Office, Pushing Daisies, Two and a Half Men, Ugly Betty and Weeds.

The drama finalists are: Boston Legal, Damages, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Lost, Mad Men and The Tudors.

Last year, in its final season, The Sopranos took the outstanding drama series trophy. This year, AMC's Mad Men is considered a frontrunner in that category; the '60s-era drama won the Golden Globe for best dramatic television series earlier this year.

Hulk Hogan: I Still Love Linda

Terry "Hulk" Hogan tells people in its latest issue that he "unconditionally" loves his wife, Linda, despite their increasingly acrimonious divorce – and he's happy to have reconciled with his daughter, Brooke.

"I unconditionally love my wife, even though we're not together anymore," Hogan says. "The Linda that I know was a great mother and a great person."

Admitting that there had been problems in the marriage for a decade, Hogan, 54, concedes during an exclusive interview that letting cameras into their home for their hit VH1 show, Hogan Knows Best, may have been a mistake: "I just think the reality show amplified the problems that were already there."

Linda, 48, filed for divorce last November.

Hogan says his relationship with Brooke, 20, "was strained for a while" after Brooke learned that Hogan had a brief fling with one of her close friends, a woman in her 30s. "Brooke has gone through a range of emotions,"…

Naomi Campbell Pleads Guilty To Assault

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers at London’s Heathrow Airport in April 2008. She was arrested onboard a Los Angeles-bound plane following a dispute over her luggage, which was lost in the airport’s recent Terminal 5 baggage handling fiasco.

Campbell appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court, west London on Friday to face six charges relating to her actions towards two officers.
The 38-year-old Campbell admitted to three counts of assault, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of threatening behavior towards cabin crew. If convicted on all six charges she could face up to six months in prison and be fined up to $10,000 for each count of assaulting a police officer.

It is not the first time Campbell has found herself in trouble with the law over her fiery temper - last year she was sentenced to community service at New York’s sanitation department after she was convicted of assaulting her maid with her Blackberry cell phone.

Jermaine Dupri: Janet And I Are Ready for Baby

Janet Jackson might feel "allergic to marriage," but the pop star is ready to have a baby, says longtime boyfriend Jermaine Dupri.

"Yeah, soon," Dupri told people Sunday at a dinner party hosted by New Era and Belvedere Vodka at West Hollywood's STK restaurant. "Right after the tour." (Jackson, 42, recently announced she'll be on the road this fall.)

The producer – who has a daughter, Shaniah, from a previous relationship – is so excited to start a family with Jackson, he doesn't even care if it's a boy or a girl.

"It really doesn't matter," he explained at the even honoring rapper Nelly. "Janet would be a great mom. She was around so many brothers and sisters all her life, so she's got to know what that is [like]. And her mom is a great mother."

According to Dupri, Jackson is also a great companion. "The greatest thing in life is just to have a friend," he said. "When I have problems in life, I share…

Minnie Driver Enjoys Casual Baby Shower

Minnie Driver and about 40 guests gathered Saturday at a friend's home in Malibu for a baby shower.

The house was decorated with pink and white peonies, and it was a casual affair, with guests sipping basil lemonade and eating finger sandwiches and berry cake from Sweet Lady Jane.

"Minnie loves the cake," says a pal.

Driver opened Gymboree Brand New gifts, while guests hand-painted onesies for the baby and signed personal notes in a book to be given to the mom-to-be.

"It was a beautiful day," a guest tells people.

The British-born Driver, 38, has decided not to find out the sex of the baby. She has said little about the father, except that's he's English, "sort of in the same business," and that they have no plans to marry.

Keith Urban's Big Birthday Sing-A-Long for Nicole Kidman

Talk about a surprise party.

After Keith Urban sang "Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me" for pregnant wife Nicole Kidman, the country star announced to the Chicago Soldier Field crowd Saturday night that she just had a birthday the day before.

"So it would be nice to have 50,000 people sing 'Happy Birthday' to her," he said – and brought Kidman on stage for a stadium-sized sing-a-long for the actress, who turned 41 on Friday.

A surprised and glowing Kidman, in a long flowing black floral tank top dress, blew the audience a kiss and returned backstage when the song finished. The couple are awaiting the birth of their first child, due any day.

Jamie Lynn Spears Has a Baby Girl

There is a new baby in the Spears clan! Jamie Lynn Spears and her fiancé Casey Aldridge welcomed a baby girl Thursday morning.

"Just the family was there," says a source about the birth around 9:30 a.m. at a hospital in Mississippi, near her Louisiana hometown. "Everyone is healthy and happy."

Jamie Lynn's sister Britney, father Jamie and brother Bryan flew in Wednesday to be with her for the birth; her mother Lynne had been with her helping her get ready for the baby.

Kimora Lee Simmons 'Kind Of' Engaged to Djimon

Kimora Lee Simmons and Djimon Honsou are "kind of" engaged, she tells people.

When photographers asked the designer, 33, and the actor-model, 44, to kiss on the red carpet at the Bel Air home of Maria and William Bell for Wednesday's third annual Loveday celebration hosted by Cartier, Simmons opted for a snuggle instead.

"That was more like a nuzzle!" she said.

So, are the two – who first met in February 2007 – engaged? "Kind of," Simmons replied.

Asked if Honsou had given her an engagement ring, Simmons was equally forthcoming – and evasive. "Well, kind of," she said, "not quite."

Once inside the party, Simmons explained their attendance by saying, "My honey created a bracelet last year, and we're here for [the orphans' charity] SOS Children, and we're really good friends and supporters of Cartier and their charitable initiatives."

Amy Winehouse Hospitalized

All those long nights might finally have caught up to Amy Winehouse.

The beehived singer has been hospitalized in London to undergo tests after fainting at her home Monday afternoon.

Winehouse's rep, Tracey Miller, confirmed the incident to E! News, adding that the singer "may be kept in overnight for observation."

Per Miller, the 24-year-old's manager's assistant was "fortunately" with Winehouse at the time and managed "to stop her falling."

"She quickly recovered and her father Mitch took her to the hospital as a precaution."

Meanwhile, another Winehouse rep told the BBC that Winehouse was "doing admin" at the time of her fainting spell.

The "Rehab" singer apparently had planned on signing autographs for a group of die-hard Canadian fans who had congregated outside her Camden home for most of the day, only to discover they had already left the premises. It was then that she fainted.

Winehouse is currently undergoing te…

August, In the Heights Named Top Shows at Tony Awards

Broadway came out swinging Sunday night for the 62nd annual Tony Awards, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg.

August: Osage County was named best play and won five awards in all, while In the Heights was the recipient of four Tonys, including best musical.

Besides the top award, In the Heights, a celebration of Latin-community life in Upper Manhattan, was recognized for its orchestration, choreography and score, with its writer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, stopping the show with his acceptance speech – delivered, in breathtaking fashion, as a rap song.

Adding to its distinction as this year's Pulitzer Prize winner for drama, the Steppenwolf Theatre Company's August: Osage County by Tracy Letts, about a prickly and dysfunctional Oklahoma family, was named best play. The production's four other Tonys were for its director Anna D. Shapiro, leading actress Deanna Dunagan, featured actress Rondi Reed and its scenic designer Todd Rosenthal.

R. Kelly Found Not Guilty!

Well, that was easy.

It took more than six years for the case to go to trial, but after less than a day of deliberations, a Chicago jury has found R&B superstar R. Kelly not guilty of all 14 counts of videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl.

If convicted, the 41-year-old singer could have faced a minimum of four years in prison and a maximum of 15 years and would have had to register as a sex offender in Illinois.

Kelly's acquittal essentially came down to whether or not his legal eagles instilled enough reasonable doubt in the panel of nine men and three women as they debated the kiddie-porn charges over seven hours. Obviously, Kelly's camp succeeded.

"R. Kelly was found not guilty, because they had the best jury that Cook County could produce," Kelly's attorney, Sam Adam Jr. said outside the courtroom.

Three hours before the verdict was reached, Cook County Criminal Court Judge Vincent Gaughan received a note from an African-American juror who atten…

Lindsay Not Asking for Your Consideration

Edie Falco, Elaine Stritch, Carrie Fisher, Vivica A. Fox, Sarah Silverman and the 35 other women who were good for a hearty laugh over the last year can rest easy.

Lindsay Lohan has decided not to submit herself for consideration at the upcoming 60th Annual Emmy Awards, despite being eligible for an Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series trophy for the not-quite-60 seconds she spent on screen in the season finale of Ugly Betty.

"The appearance was brief," Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane, told the Los Angeles Times' Gold Derby blog. "We made a decision to wait."

To be fair, Lohan's Betty-tormenting character will have at least five episodes to strut her stuff next season, so no one can say for certain that the comebacking actress won't leave an Emmy-worthy comedic footprint on the ABC comedy in the future.

Angelina Jolie: Being Pregnant with Twins Was a 'Shock'

Angelina Jolie has talked candidly about her desire to continue expanding her family with Brad Pitt. But when the actress found out she was pregnant with twins, well, even she was taken aback.

"We weren't expecting twins," Jolie, 33, tells Entertainment Weekly in a new interview. "So it did shock us, and we jumped to six [children] quickly. But we like a challenge."

With a house full of kids, Jolie says she needs help – so it's a good thing there's family around to pitch in. "[Brad's] mom and dad are on standby to come out and help," she says.

But the real focus, Jolie says, is making sure their other children – Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 – feel included when their new siblings are born.

Eva Longoria Is Still Not Pregnant

Eva Longoria-Parker just can't stop the baby talk!

The most recent game of bumpwatch began Monday, after the Desperate Housewives star was photographed shopping at N.Y.C.'s Ferragamo boutique wearing a loose-fitting sundress – while salespeople seemingly pointed to her belly.

So is she ready to start a family with husband Tony Parker? The answer, it seems, is an emphatic no.

"Eva is not pregnant," her stylist Robert Verdi told people during a viewing party for his new show, She's Got the Look.

And Verdi insists he has first-hand knowledge. "I'm not her gynecologist, but I am her stylist," he explained. "I see her naked. I see her boobs! That's the first place it would show, and it's not showing!"

As for the Ferragamo photos, Verdi – who was with Longoria during the shopping expedition – said the shots are simply misleading. "Eva was holding a handbag that she bought in the crook of her arm," he said. "The manager came ove…

Two Charged with Providing Drugs to Amy Winehouse

London police have arrested two people – John Blagrove and Cara Burton – suspected of supplying drugs to Amy Winehouse, the Associated Press reports.

The charges stem from the now-infamous video that appeared to show the troubled singer smoking crack cocaine. (Stills from the video were published by the U.K.'s Sun tabloid in January – leading to Winehouse's brief stint in rehab.)

The two have reportedly been charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine and MDMA (ecstasy).

Police have said Winehouse will not be charged in that case.

She does, however, have an ongoing drug case in Norway, where she and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, were arrested for marijuana possession. offers the best on beauty product-perfumes-designer watches-lingeries-Ink-toners-football products and more.

Mom-to-Be Marissa Winokur Rushing to Be Ready

Marissa Jaret Winokur has six more weeks until the July 22 due date of her baby – and she's not ready.

"We were doing construction at our house and I went off and did Dancing with the Stars. Four months later, nothing's gotten done and I'm totally in a panic."

Paris Hilton (Shock!) Parties – Dashing Pregnancy Rumors

With one swig of pink champagne at dinner Friday, Paris Hilton quickly put an end to any lingering pregnancy rumors that have been heating up the Web.

The heiress imbibed and dined with her "BFFs" while filming her new MTV reality show, Paris Hilton's My New BFF, at Tao Las Vegas.

Still, even surrounded by girls vying for her attention, Hilton had one guy on her mind. Wearing a form-fitting, vintage black dress (with a belt wrapped firmly around her stomach), Hilton told people that her boyfriend of nearly four months, Benji Madden, is her "best boyfriend".

Jessica Simpson Plans Romantic Vacation

The couple that travels together, stays together—or, at least, so says rocky-relationship queen Jessica Simpson.

"She believes a vacation will really do a lot to reconnect them. Tony agreed to go, but it was all Jessica's idea."

Timing, however, is a problem. Jessica's crazy busy with photo shoots and interviews to promote her soon-to-be-released country album. And Tony starts football training camp July 24.

Christina Aguilera Defends Her Late Nights

This past weekend, for example, she hit Las Vegas's Pure nightclub at Caesars Palace to help celebrate the launch of an Xtina-inspired jewelry line, the Stephen Webster Silver Collection.

"I spend all day with my son," Aguilera, 27, told the TV show – adding that any criticism of her late-night outings with husband Jordan Bratman is downright "mean spirited."

"They're very happy," says a source. "They're a fun little couple."

To get settled in their new home, Spears, 17, and Aldridge, 19, recently had furniture – including an elaborately carved four-poster king-size canopy bed, a leather recliner, and a leather sofa – delivered to the house.

Spears's mom, Lynne, is helping her daughter decorate the nursery, with the color scheme of pink, brown, and "silver-green," says an insider.

Spears, who is due to give birth soon, has been keeping a low profile as she readies the new house for her baby. The five-acre Liberty property is already equipped with a barn and studio, which was formerly used as a hair salon.

Pink Lily Punks Glamour Awards

Isn't Lily Allen glamorous? In a word, no.

On her way to pick up an Editor's Special Award at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London, the UK pop chanteuse took a detour into pigmentation purgatory, telling the Daily Mail , "I dyed my hair pink this afternoon in my own bathroom."

Allen completes the look in a Giles Deacon satin prom dress patterned with images of Bambi shooting gushers of blood, hideously accessorized with turquoise-and blue-heels and a mismatched pink hair bow.

Glamour editor Jo Elvin chose to look away from the train wreck, and stick with her prepared spiel introducing Lily:

"With reams of column inches to match her considerable talents, no Women of the Year line-up could be complete without the one and only Lily Allen."

Well, there's no accounting for taste, or the lack thereof.

Maybe the "Smile" singer was just trying to rekindle her feud with fellow British retro artist Amy Winehouse. But be warned, Lily, that way lies m…

Love has blossomed on the set of the latest series of Doctor Who between the star of the show, David Tennant, and 23-year-old actress Georgia Moffett.

Georgia, who appeared in an episode as the Time Lord's onscreen daughter Jenny, has been spotted with the 37-year-old actor at his house in North London and at her flat in Twickenham.

A friend of the actress has confirmed that Georgia, who has a six-year-old son, has been out on a series of dates with David, and that the pair have been meeting at each other's homes in order to avoid being spotted by fans of the show.

"It started with some friendly dinner dates but it has progressed quickly and they are now in a serious relationship," the friend revealed.

"Even with his busy schedule David is making a lot of time to spend with her, so he must really like her."

And if the young actress decides to take David home to meet her parents they will certainly have a lot to talk about. Georgia's father, Peter Davison, pl…
