STAR Artist Gavin Rossdale is one of the many artists performing on CBS’s Home for the Holidays tonight which raises awareness of the importance of foster care and adoption. Melissa Etheridge, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Jamie Foxx will also be making appearances. That’s tonight at 7 p.m. on CBS.

It’s official: STAR Artist Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet Tour” is now the highest grossing tour ever by a solo artist. When her show wrapped on Sunday, the tour had pulled in $280 million in ticket sales over 58 concerts. And though Madonna and Guy Ritchie are officially splitsville, they’ll be spending Christmas together with their kids and to celebrate the holidays, Madonna has spent some of her mega-millions on some very expensive drinks. She bought 25 bottles of wine laced with 24-karat silver. The bill on that? $7,400. And yes, real silver in the wine. And you thought passing a kidney stone was bad?...

Last week, Scarlett Johansson had a head cold when she was on with Jay Leno. She blew her nose into a Kleenex. They sold it on eBay…for $5,300! All the money went to charity. And I thought we were in a recession…

Paris Hilton tells me she's devastated about losing more than $2 million worth of jewelry after a break-in at her home I told you about yesterday. "I cannot believe someone broke into my home. They took items that had such sentimental value that no one will ever be able to replace. I'm just thankful that I wasn't there when it happened." An insider tells me the surveillance video shows a thief who appears to know where he was going, "like he's been there before." Paris has now increased her security team to three 24-hour bodyguards. Good luck finding the guy who broke into Paris' home. The thief looked "like he's been there before." Authorities need to trim the list of suspects down from the entire male population on Earth.

6 months from now, on a stage far, far away, George Lucas tried to milk the Star Wars franchise for another million and has given his approval for Star Wars: A Musical Journey. Producers in England are developing a stage production based on the Star Wars saga that will feature dancing storm troopers, singing wookies and the Royal Philharmonic. It debuts April 10th in England before heading to the rest of Europe. No word on any U.S. dates. Hey, I’m a hug Star Wars nerd and even here I say…God help us all.

What better way to celebrate your birthday than to dress up as a violent criminal? That's what STAR Artist Christina Aguilera did last Thursday night, when she threw a Clockwork Orange-themed party in Beverly Hills to mark her 28th birthday.

STAR Artist Jason Mraz has posted a hilarious video Christmas greet at his website where he also sings a deliberately-cheesy song called “Merry Holidays.” Check it out here!
