These events do this to me every time: I look forward to them before they come up, but when they actually happen, I am completely blown away by what I consider a once-in-a-lifetime live music experience. I walked out of the Pavilion at the beginning of Pearl Jam’s soundcheck and had to stop to look back in awe. (No kidding – and probably the first time I’ve ever been seen rocking out while carrying a $3,000 tripod.) From the first chord, you could tell that they meant business. They know (and love) this music, as the Who is in their lifeblood. Expect their set to be filled with songs from Quadrophenia, with the help of a string and horn section. The best thing about this venue is that when you exit the Pavilion, you can still hear the music pouring out and enveloping a good portion of the UCLA campus in glorious rock.
Not sure if you’ve heard, but allegedly Madonna‘s causing some marital issues for a certain Yankee. The reigning pop tart is being accused of coming between A-Rod and his wife Cynthia after the press reported that A-Rod had been making late-night visits to Madonna’s New York apartment, and reportedly referred to her as his soulmate. But this is only the latest in a lengthy line of people that Madge has been linked to. Check out Madonna’s public lovers and private booty calls. And remember: this is only the dudes.

Everyone’s favorite diva is on the cover of the August issue of Elle, looking utterly foxy in addition to finally opening up about her whirlwind courtship and marriage to Nick Cannon. Though the couple have recently been plagued by reports of the honeymoon being over, Mariah dispels all rumors, sharing a few choice facts about Mr. Mimi and how it all went down.
* Mariah didn’t say yes to Nick — the first time. Apparently Nick had to propose twice, then Mariah finally agreed to marry him. “He sort of kidnapped me and took me on a helicopter ride. Then he re-proposed.” Mariah shut Nick down days earlier when he proposed on the roof of her apartment.
* There may be the pitter-patter of little footsteps. “I couldn’t imagine anybody that I’ve ever met being a better dad,” Mariah says of her hubby.
* Apparently, Nick’s a heavy sleeper. As Mimi conducted the interview, Cannon stayed behind closed doors of their suite, sleeping the entire time despite barking from behind the bedroom door.

A little while back, we told you about the Battle of the Blondes. Seems Jessica Simpson got Pam Anderson‘s bikini in a bunch when she wore a t-shirt that read “Real Girls Eat Meat.” The thrice-married, sex-tape-makin’ Anderson countered by calling Simpson a “bitch and a whore.” Jessica held her tongue, but friends are saying Jess isn’t taking it too well.
Described as “disgusted” and “beyond mad,” a friend of Simpson’s told British tabloid The Sun that she isn’t allowed to say anything. “Her folks told her NOT to make a big deal of it – as that would only get Pamela the press she’s so desperate for.” If it’s any consolation, Simpson can stuff her trap with extra bacon cheeseburgers, while Pam settles for attention from Criss Angel.
Avant oddballs the Flaming Lips are gearing up for their performance at next week’s Rock Honors, where they’ll be taking on the Who (a dream come true, for frontman Wayne Coyne). Known for their on-stage spectaculars, the band — who’ll be joining the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Incubus in kneeling at the altar of the Who — will also be celebrating something else: after seven years, the band have finished working on Christmas on Mars, a concept film about the first Christmas on the Red Planet, starring the band. They plan on screening the film this summer at a series of shows.
So what to expect from the Lips’ Who tribute and their latest foray into film? Just like the band they’re honoring, weirdness and spectacle, and lots of it. If you can’t wait until next week, check out the craziest on-stage antics of rock and rollers here.
Megan Fox fans rejoice — and 90210 fans mourn: the Transformers hottie and her fiance Brian Austin Green have split. Rumblings of Fox’s canoodling with current co-star Adam Brody had been reported from the set of their new movie Jennifer’s Body, but we’re pretty sure the split had to do with her finally realizing she’s way out of his washed-up league.
Here’s the aptly named Fox’s vital stats.

Camila Alves is the 25-year-old model who “made a baby” with shirtless wonder Matthew McConaughey. She also, apparently, happens to be the latest object of Kanye West‘s affection. Earlier today, the temperamental rapper posted a shot of McConaughey’s babymama on his blog. In the past several weeks, Kanye has uploaded shots of ladies he fancies…and Camila’s the latest. Think Ye knows Camila’s flat stomach looks a little different these days?
