Ever wanted to know how Tina Fey got that scar on her face? She doesn’t like to talk about it but she finally told the story.
Liz Lemon favors her right side. That’s because a faint scar runs across Tina Fey’s left cheek, the result of a violent cutting attack by a stranger when Fey was five. Her husband says, “It was in, like, the front yard of her house, and somebody who just came up, and she just thought somebody marked her with a pen.” You can hardly see the scar in person.

Actor Robert Downey Jr. got knocked out cold on the set of his new movie Sherlock Holmes. One of his costars punches accidentally landed and put Robert on his back unconscious and drooling blood. He need six stitches but his rep tells me “He’s fine.” Well yeah, because he’s a bad ass.

STAR Artist Madonna’s marriage may be over but perhaps some cold, hard cash will provide some good emotional support. Her current tour “Sticky & Sweet” (again, whatever that means) is on track to be the top-grossing tour by a solo artist ever. The North American leg alone has pulled in $91.5 million.

Congrats to STAR Artist Coldplay, only the second band of 2008 to have a CD go double platinum. The other artist was Lil Wayne.

U2’s new album’s working title is “No Line on the Horizon” and The Edge explains, “It’s like you’re moving forward, but you’re not exactly sure what you’re heading towards...It’s an image of infinity, I suppose.”
