American Idol winner and STAR Artist David Cook just can’t get enough of Hollywood. He went back last night to sing the "National Anthem" for the NBA Finals on ABC.

STAR Artist Maroon 5’s deluxe edition of their hit CD It Won’t Be Soon Before Long will come with a DVD packed featuring the band’s entire collection of music videos plus you’ll get 12 live performances and all their B-sides. That’ll hit stores July 8th.

STAR Artist Jordin Sparks and Natasha Beddingfield are among the performers at this year’s Macys 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular. Look for that on NBC.

A couple weeks ago I told you about a postcard-sized, 800-word prequel of the Harry Potter series was going to go up for auction. Yesterday it was sold…for $48,000. That’s $60 per word. The prequel takes place 3 years before Harry is born and features characters like Sirius Black and Harry’s father. J.K. Rowling says she stands by her decision not to add to the 7-book series. By the way, the next Harry Potter movie comes out in 4 and a half months.

Time for your dailly Brangelina Nursery Update. Today we’re hearing from a source that the couple consulted a psychic to help determine the vibe of the nursery, and after all was said and done, Brad and Angelina decided on a more girly theme though we still don’t know the gender of the twins. The source also says the couple only spent $100,000 on the nursery, not $140,000 as previously reported. ‘Cause anything more than 100-grand would have been excessive...

Looks like all of STAR Artist Madonna’s secrets are going to come out. Her brother Christopher is penning a memoir all about the material girl. The publisher has ordered a monster first printing, over 350,000 copies. Life With My Sister is set to hit shelves on July 15th.

Tom Hanks won’t get in the way of love. When filming blocked a bride’s path to her church in Rome, Tom escorted the woman and her dad into the church. Imagine the breathless exchange at the altar: “Sorry I’m late, but I just touched Tom Hanks! Anyway, I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Or whatever. He was cuter than I expected. Loud? I’m not talking loud. No, you shut up. I just met Tom Hanks!"

One of my favorite reality TV shows is Top Chef. I think a lot of it has to do with the idea that any time I watch it, I want to eat. Bravo execs are now trying to develop a spin-off called Top Chef Junior which would put teenagers’ cooking skills head-to-head. ‘Cause teens don’t have, or pretend to have, enough drama in their lives already…

If you’ve seen the Sex & the City movie, then you saw the book Carrie Bradshaw reads in bed with Big called "Love Letters of Great Men". Wanna buy it? Oooh, sorry ya can’t. It doesn’t exist. But what does exist is a book called "Love Letters of Great Men and Women: From the 18th Century to the Present Day". It’s currently #134 on Amazon.com’s Bestseller List.
