Matthew McConaughey has a new baby. His wife delivered a healthy baby boy last night. His name is Levi. Thank God Matthew didn't go with his first inclination to name it “Dude”. I guess you can tell the baby boy already looks like his dad – he came out shirtless and drooling.

STAR Artist Madonna, for some reason, wants Brintney Spears to be a part of her new tour. Will she risk the pop train wreck actually appearing in person? Thankfully no. Britney will record some sort of video message or performance as will STAR Artist Justin Timberlake. And no, Britney and Justin will not be appearing in the SAME video. That’s a whole other train wreck waiting to happen.

STAR Artist Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin is a dad – a dad to some babies with some very strange names like Apple and Moses. But Chris doesn’t see anything odd or peculiar about the names, “People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands. There’s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that’s what you want to call your baby. It’s no stranger than Sarah.” Sure. Chewbacca...Sarah...I see the similarities.

Why do we love Steve Carell from NBC’s The Office? Because he’s a super nice guy and proves it daily. His co-star in Get Smart Anne Hathaway recently broke up with her boyfriend who’s now in prison for a laundry list of charges. Anne has had a strict policy of not being asked about that by reporters but at a recent premiere one reporter asked if the break-up was painful. Anne politely smiled and Steve Carell swooped in saying, “In my role of agent for Miss Hathaway, I would like to say that she does not answer questions relating to this subject." What a gentleman.

According to The Today Show, 80s fashion trends are starting to come back. I can’t believe I’m saying this but shoulder pads might be in again! What?! Neons and brights, shrunken leather jackets, short full skirts – they’re all on the rise and some of the outfit combinations I’ve seen actually look good. Are you going to pull out some old closeted 80s outfits? I think my Members Only jacket needs to stay as far from daylight as possible.

Here’s a few things you’re probably familiar with – Camp Rock, Hannah Montana and…High School Musical. In terms of the latter, writers at Disney have begun working on a script that would follow the High School Musical stars into their college years.

STAR Artists Ashlee Simpson and Fergie are doing their part to help young women – they’ve signed on to headline Seventeen magazine’s “Body Peace Project” which helps young ladies develop positive body images. Look for those later this summer.

How's Angelina passing the time in the hospital as she waits for her twins? According to Star magazine, she's been watching reruns of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Angelina is due in the next few weeks.

Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have split up after nearly a year of dating.

Paula Abdul’s ex won’t be finding his next true love on ABC’s The Bachelor. A recent report said he was in talks to appear on the show but ABC denies the rumor.

Get Smart looks okay over all, though Steve Carell seems to be veering more and more toward not so funny slapstick humor
