Nice, scrawny old guy Bob won Survivor: Gabon – hurray! has named Madonna the highest ticket price of 2008, a title I don’t think you’d want. According to Stubhub, her shows averaged $306 a ticket. Thanks Madonna!

STAR Artist Leona Lewis will be spending New Year’s Eve where everyone wants to spend NYE…the exotic and beautiful Poland! She’ll be ringin’ in 2009 performing for Krakow’s New Year’s Eve Party with thousands of party-goers and a huge fireworks display. Sure, that all sounds great but on the downside…Poland.
