October 8, 2008

There is NO confirmation this is true but I just wanna put it out there. The National Enquirer is reporting Britney Spears' 17 year-old sister Jamie Lynn is pregnant...again. I hate to say it but the last time she was rumored to be pregnant, she actually was...

Long before the Queen of Everything – Oprah – had her “Favorite Things,” Neiman Marcus released its annual Christmas Book. The 82nd edition is out announcing the list of “must haves” for the upper crust of society of 2008 and into 2009:
--Topping the list as the most expensive item is a $1.3 million wedding at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California.

--For vintage vinyl fans, a 45 RPM singles collection featuring every song on the Billboard Top 100 Rock and Pop charts from January 1, 1955 until December 31, 1990. This collection of 35 years of musical history, including many collectables, is yours for $275,000.

--Here's a perfect gift for the Dallas Cowboys football fan on your list: a Cowboys' Texas Stadium end zone to install in their backyard, priced at just $500,000.

--For golfers, how about a custom backyard golf course designed by greens legend Jack Nicklaus, yours for $1 million.

--In celebration of their 250th anniversary, Guinness is offering to custom-build an Irish pub in your home, plus throw in a trip to Dublin, Ireland. Cost: $250,000.

--In lieu of his and hers cologne this year, artist Nathan Sawaya is willing to sculpt you and yours using Lego bricks for the bargain price of $60,000.

What a surprise – no one got eliminated on Dancing With the Stars. This week’s scores will be combined with next week’s. In light of Misty May-Treanor’s injury I told you about, no one got the boot and surprisingly, no one will be replacing Misty when she leaves to have surgery.

If Nick Nolte wanted a tan he could just try and win STAR 98’s Break for the Beach. Instead, he set his house on fire. Okay, he didn’t really set his house ablaze but an electrical fire did start in his Malibu home. The fire department had the (not so) raging inferno out in 10 minutes and Nolte suffered only minor injuries. However the bar in his living room was completely destroyed – Nolte’s still in shock.

Here’s a match made in heaven for STAR listeners. STAR Artists Rob Thomas and Chris Daughtry are teaming up to play a benefit concert where all money raised will go to Pets Alive, a no-kill animal shelter in New York. Rob and Chris have known each other a while. Rob’s the one that told Chris to turn down the offer to be the lead singer of the band Fuel. They also wrote a song together but it didn’t make it onto Chris’ album.

Speaking of Daughtry...
A couple weeks ago STAR Artist Daughtry re-released their self-titled album, and now another STAR Artist is headin’ down that path. Colbie Caillat will re-release "Coco" with 3 brand new songs as well as live versions of songs by two of her biggest influences: Bob Marley and Lauryn Hill. Look for that in stores November 11th and then you can also hear Colbie on STAR Artist Taylor Swift’s new CD coming out November 11th as well. They duet on a song called “Breathe.”

Esquire magazine has named Halle Bery the Sexiest Woman Alive. She humbly accepted the award saying, “I share this title with every woman, because every woman is a nominee for it at any moment." Aww that’s so super nice and generic Halle. You obviously haven’t met Kathy Bates.

STAR Artist Avril Lavigne is all done touring for the time being. What’ll she do now? She’ll continue working on her clothing line, she’s got a fragrance coming out next year and she tells me she really wants to focus on acting. She had a couple of small roles but she’d like to pursue bigger and better things. As for a new record she tells me she doesn’t want to rush into anything, “If I feel like it, then it'll happen. If not, I'll just let it be natural.”

I’ve been telling you about that new EP from STAR Artist Coldplay slated to hit stores later this year – well now I can tell you exactly when later this year. "Prospekt’s March" will hit stores November 25th. Here's the track listing:
"Life in Technicolor ii"
"Postcards From Far Away"
"Glass of Water"
"Rainy Day"
"Prospekt's March/Poppyfields"
"Lost +" (Jay-Z remix)
"Lovers in Japan" (Osaka Sun mix)
"Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground"
