Rumors abound that STAR Artist Janet Jackson is pregnant. Her boyfriend Jermaine Dupri tells me, no, that’s not true at all. He also told me Janet is just a very private person which is why she herself has not made a statement. Well good. Janet isn’t pregnant. Which is actually a relief because we don’t need any more Jacksons…ever.

Police in Los Angeles continue to investigate the robbery of Paris Hilton’s home after it was broken into on Friday. It left her bedroom in shambles, not like it usually is, and resulted in about $2 million in missing jewelry. Now, there were witnesses to the break-in. A man in a dark hooded sweatshirt and gloves went in the house through an unlocked door. Neighbors didn’t call the cops because they see a man leave Paris’ house every 2 hours.

Lord Richard Attenborough, the British filmmaker who won an Academy Award for directing Gandhi and starred as the entrepreneur who creates a dinosaur attraction in the movie Jurassic Park, has awakened from a coma following a fall at his home last week. He remains in stable condition at a London hospital.

The adoption of another child was reportedly a sore subject in Madonna and Guy Ritchie's marriage, but with their divorce comes news that she's ready to add another kid to her family. I’m hearing reports Madonna has already signed papers to adopt a little girl from Malawi and hopes to bring the child home "early next year." Hey! Alex Rodriguez! Get out while you still can!

STAR Artist Daughtry will be performing with fellow American Idol alum, STAR Artist David Cook on Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live special. They’ll be performing “Home” but it’ll most likely be pre-recorded but hey, so is David Cook’s performance.

These days, artists make as much money endorsing products as they do selling albums or touring, but STAR Artist Colbie Caillat is one star who has, so far, turned down big-bucks offers to shill for various products, including Neutrogena. She told me, "It's tempting, but I'm not sure what direction I want to go in. If you pick one product, you're stuck with that." So what product would she like to sell if she had to, "I love Steve Madden shoes." Colbie did her final show of 2008 on Friday. Next up for her is a trip to Hawaii, where she'll work on material for her next album.
