Music has lost a legendary voice - lead singer of the Four Tops, Levi Stubbs died in his sleep today at his home in Detroit. He had reportedly been battling cancer. Even if you don't know his name, you know the songs (you've probably karaoked to a few of them) and you know his voice. Levi Stubbs was 72.

Will Sarah Palin be on Saturday Night Live in the near future? You betcha. She'll be on tomorrow! Now we don't know if Tina Fey will be on as well, though that'd be pretty darn funny, but we do know that Josh Brolin will be the host and in the new movie W. he plays President George W. Bush so that could lead to an absolute perfect storm of political comedy.

Officials at Los Angeles County USC Medical Center said yesterday that Desperate Housewives actor Gale Harold is improving after Tuesday's motorcycle accident. Harold, who just began playing Teri Hatcher's boyfriend series, is still in the intensive care unit after suffering swelling on the brain and a fractured shoulder. However, hospital officials said he is expected to recover.

Hannah Montana's Miley Cyrus did nothing to hide her feelings toward "shouldn't this be illegal??" boyfriend and model Justin Gaston. On Wednesday at L.A. Fashion Week, while Gaston strutted the catwalk he blew kisses and winked at the 15-year-old, and she in turn, quote "licked her lips seductively." I just threw up a little in my mouth.

STAR Artist John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston broke up back up in August but recent shenanigans seem to indicate they're back together. They've been seen gettin' cutesy together three times in the last week. Most recently they were spotted being' all couple-y celebrating his birthday on Wednesday.

STAR Artist David Cook recently posted this video blog talking about his Saturday Night Live performance coming up November 1st.

I don't know how you keep a secret like this but STAR Artist Nelly Furtado revealed that she and her fiancee got secretly married...over the summer! That's like...3 months ago! How do you do that and not spill the beans? Why would you not want to tell people?! *throws up hands in surrender*

STAR Artist Taylor Swift will be going on her first headlining tour early next yera to promote her new album "Fearless."

Will Ferrel will take his hilarious President Bush impression to Broadway for a one-man show called You're Welcome America: A Final Night With George W. Bush. Sounds like he's right on with his career strategery.
