Last night was the celebrity-infused New York City premiere of The Dark Knight and the star that was on everyone’s minds was, of course, Heath Ledger. Critics who have seen the movie can’t stop raving about his performance as The Joker. Heath’s father and stepmother traveled to the Big Apple to be a part of the evening. Fans at the premiere had nothing but good things to say about Heath, as did stars of the new movie Christian Bale and Maggie Gyllenhaal who said Heath inspired her every day on the set. You can see what everyone is talking about when The Dark Knight hits theaters on Friday. I’ve got tickets for you to win with What’s In Matt’s Pocket through tomorrow night.

While Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are fielding offers for the first photos of their twins, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have reportedly turned down millions of dollars for the first snapshots of baby Sunday. The couple will eventually release an official photo of their daughter for the low, low price of free! A source tells me, "They don't think it's appropriate to make deals."

STAR Artist Madonna’s brother’s new tell-all book is in stores and despite some weird truths he’s brought to light he does tell us there’s no validity to any of the rumors that say Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie will divorce. He says there’s no way she’d walk away from her marriage.

Paris Hilton is hoping a little bundle of joy will bring her a bigger bundle of press. Evidently she wants to be a mommy after seeing all the attention her pal Nicole Richie got. Some sources have told me she’s so serious about making a baby, she’s given up drinking. Well that’s no way to not get pregnant!

STAR Artist Sara Bareilles just recorded her first live DVD this past weekend. Look for that in stores relatively soon along with a re-release of her very first album, "Careful Confessions". She says she’s just as proud of that album as "Little Voice", the one featuring “Love Song.”

STAR Artist Chris Daughtry wrote on the band’s website recently that the new album is coming along really well even though he feels like his brain has “turned to mush.” They’ll even break out a few of those new songs on their summer tour to get, what he calls, “honest feedback.”

STAR Artist the Plain White Ts new album will be in stores September 23rd and will be titled “Big bad World.” Will there be another song like “Hey There Delilah”? Lead singer Tom confirms yes, a song called “1, 2, 3, 4.”

The Welcome Matt hears Jennifer Garner is pregnant, and just passed her first trimester. If this is true, it'll be the second child for Jen and her husband, Ben Affleck. Their daughter, Violet, will be 3 in December.

Jack Black will reprise his role as Dewey Finn in School of Rock 2! In the sequel, Jack Black will take "a group of summer school kids cross-country to learn the history of rock 'n' roll, exploring its roots in blues, R&B, country and folk,"

STAR Artist Jordin Sparks just got back from Europe and needs some time to relax. So she’s going to camp. No, really, she is. Jordin will spend a couple weeks at Camp Kanakuk, a Christian athletic camp she’s been going to for years. She says it’ll be good to unplug, "You're not allowed to have cell phones or computers...so it'll probably be really detoxifying for me!"

STAR Artists Jesse McCartney, Jojo, Pink and Mariah Carey will all perform at this year’s Teen Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. Check that out on August 4th.
