Bill Murray, probably trying to escape from the memories of a nasty divorce, hurled himself out of a plane over the weekend.

Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, has revealed he suffers from a mild form of dyspraxia, a neurological disorder that often impairs coordination, and which is sometimes mistaken for sheer clumsiness.

Speaking of Daniel…Fox News columnist Roger Friedman says the real reason Warner Brothers is delaying the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is because they don't want it to come out while star Daniel Radcliffe is getting naked on Broadway.

Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell, all of whom filled in for Heath Ledger’s final role in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, have, in a stunning display of love and good will, donated their paychecks to Heath’s daughter Matilda because the will had not been updated to include her.

STAR Artist Daughtry is making sure STAR listeners get out and vote in the upcoming presidential election. But don’t worry, they’re not a bunch of celebrities who will tell you WHO to vote for. "As a band we're not saying vote for this person or vote for this person. We just want to get people out there and just do it, and vote for who they feel like."

STAR Artist Maroon 5 is offering STAR listeners the chance to buy a limited number of autographed copies of the deluxe version of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. Each copy costs $100 but don’t let your jaw hit the floor just yet. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. Check out to grab your copy.

STAR Artist Mariah Carey is currently enjoying a romantic getaway with new hubby Nick Cannon on the Italian isle of Capri. Capri is one of Mariah’s favorite places on earth. Why? "The food is amazing and the people are really, really nice. They're very cool...they treat me like I was born there."

Saturday, basically a week after their deaths, memorial services were held for Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes. Bernie’s was open to public and over 10,000 people showed up to express their condolences. Isaac’s family held a private ceremony in Memphis. A few celebrities like Tom Cruise, Kelly Preston, and Wesley Snipes showed up. A public ceremony was held today in Cordova, Tennessee.

Call him New Kid on the chopping block. Donnie Wahlberg's wife of more than eight years has filed for divorce citing the ever popular "irreconcilable differences."
