- Not a lot of people are happy about turning 30. However, Pete Doherty took it to the extreme and tried to throw himself off the top of a hotel.
- Apparently Lady GaGa doesn't like being questioned about her gender. She had a reporter removed from a press conference for asking her if she was a hermaphrodite. (I wonder what happens when you ask Jamie Lee Curtis that question...)
- Neil Diamond likes the Jonas Brothers... cuz they remind him of a younger... him.
