It only cost them $1 million, but the newest Ok! magazine issue has the first pictures of Jamie Lynn Spears’ (Britney’s 17 year-old sister) new baby girl, Maddie Briann. Here's the cover of the latest issue:

A couple days ago Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban had a baby girl and named it Sunday Rose. How’d they pick Sunday? Nicole’s dad suggested it after reading about a very prominent woman involved with the arts in Australia. And what about Matthew McConaughey’s new baby Levi? Is he named after a pair of comfortable jeans? No. Matthew tells us it came from his favorite Bible passage in the book of Matthew (go figure). I thought McConaughey's favorite Bible verse was, "And on the seventh day, God took off his shirt and went surfing."

STAR Artist 3 Doors Down is swingin’ by the Marcus Amphitheater in Milwaukee on the 12th and wow!...will it be a LONG show with a set list of 22 songs. 22 songs?! At an average 4 minutes per song that’s…an hour and a half of pure music, not counting breaks and story time. Catch that show if you can – tickets are on-sale now through the
Concert Calendar at star98.net.

About a month ago I told you about Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl and how she withdrew her name from Emmy contention. Would you believe this? The story was blown out of proportion. Chandra Wilson, one of her costars, came to the rescue recently saying, "Anyone will tell you this...sometimes you submit, sometimes you don’t.” Nominees for this year’s Emmys get announced next week.

The new Batman movie The Dark Knight
has some serious buzz. So much so, movie theaters are creating 6 a.m. opening-day showings to meet the demand created after midnight and 3 a.m. showings sold-out already. A box-office analyst says midnight showings for movies like this are normal. But 6 a.m. shows? He says “That’s not normal.” Starting tomorrow night you can win tickets to see The Dark Knight with What’s In Matt’s Pocket at 7:30 p.m. All the daily ticket winners qualify to win a pair of RESERVED tickets for one of those sold out midnight showings.

This is scary stuff. Two Canadian cops saved the life of STAR Artist Van Halen's David Lee Roth. David was pulled over in Ontario for speeding, but when the officers approached his car, they realized he was in anaphylactic shock. He has an allergy to nuts and was suffering a severe reaction after coming into contact with a contaminated substance. The officers kept him calm until paramedics arrived.

STAR Artist David Cook has pulled a move I thought only NBA players do. He has a sneaker deal. Skechers will unveil a new pair of shoes that “reflects David’s personality, interests and appeal.” How do you convey making out with Kimberly Caldwell on a shoe?...

Speaking of David Cook...he says his dream Broadway role would be the title role in Phantom of the Opera. David says quote “I find the role so intriguing and mysterios…I’d love, love to play the Phantom.”

STAR Artist Sara Bareilles performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight and tells us she’s ready to get back into the studio to start writing and recording new music. She says she definitely writes about real life and real ex-boyfriends – the best part about that? She tells the exes when she’s written a song about them. Sara will be in Milwaukee with STAR Artist the Counting Crows and Maroon 5 on August 23rd.
