Who saw this one coming? The French doctor who will deliver Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins has told us we won’t be seeing the newborns pop out for another couple weeks. Check out the video from the press conference - the only catch is it’s completely in French, with no subtitles. So unless you wanna translate for the next hour, just take my word for it.

America turns 232 on Friday (though I don’t think she looks a day over 80) and to celebrate, E! Online has released its Top 9 Most Totally American Movies Ever list. Here it is:
1. Die Hard
2. The Godfather: Part II
3. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
4. Do the Right Thing
5. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
6. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
7. Titanic
8. Friday Night Lights
9. Forrest Gump

It seems like only yesterday Lindsay Lohan turned 21 and Bacardi’s stock prices soared. Today Lindsay turned 22. Don’t try crashing her exclusive Hollywood party. Not ‘cause you won’t get in but because I don’t think you want to see what she’ll look like after 9 Captain & Cokes.

Even though the Screen Actors Guild contract expired yesterday, the president of the group says a strike is not imminent, “Whatever stops, slow-down in the work won’t be our fault it’ll be the fault of the AMPTP.” SAG and the AMPTP met again today to negotiate. I don’t know about you but after last season’s Lost finale, I don’t think I could handle another break in new episodes.

You and the family get to enjoy a holiday weekend this weekend to celebrate our Independence and with that comes several new movies including Will Smith’s drunken super-hero Hancock. Also expanding into additional theaters is the American Girl movie Kit Kittredge. That means get ready to take your daughter, her friends and their dolls to the movies.

STAR Artist Taylor Swift will unleash her inner rockstar when she teams up with fellow STAR Artist Def Leppard in the new installment of CMT’s Crossroads show. Taylor says the new generation is no much obsessed with genres of music as it is good music and, “I have been screaming the words to Def Leppard songs for years.” Look for that on CMT November 8th.

STAR Artist John Mayer kicked off his summer tour in Milwaukee tonight at Summerfest with fellow STAR Artist Colbie Caillat who says their show is going to be especially good for a couple big reasons, “We write summer music and John is so good live. He’s such a great performer and it’s just going to be a really fun, laid-back summer concert.”

STAR Artist David Cook will perform the most songs on the American Idols Live Tour this summer, with good reason. Of course he’ll sing “Time of My Life” but he’ll also do Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and a couple others. You can see the tour for yourself when it’s at the Resch Center. Win tickets this week on STAR 98!

STAR Artist The All-American Rejects say they’re working to finishing a new CD by this fall. According to band members they’ve written a musical ton of material, over 30 songs. Guitarist Nick says, “The songs that are coming together are sounding really good and we’re really excited about it. It’s different but we’re not trying to make it different – we’re just having fun with the songs.” Look for the new Rejects CD by September.
