Amy Winehouse-when are you gonna get it together! The singer has been arrested again this week in the U.K. due to alleged drug offenses. "Amy Winehouse voluntarily attended a London police station today by appointment," says her U.S. spokesperson. "She was arrested in order to be interviewed and is cooperating fully with inquiries. The interview relates to a video handed to police earlier this year." Arrested to be interviewed? Hmm… why does this sound suspicious? Meanwhile, the tape in question is Amy caught on camera allegedly doing drugs. A few weeks ago Winehouse also spent a night in police custody for "common assault."
The worst part of all this? The one bit of awesome news we've heard-that she would be performing the new James Bond theme song-is now out of the question. Her music producer Mark Ronson says Amy is, "not ready to record any music." Duh. But man, we are really bummed at this news. Go to rehab for good and get better! [People]

Theft is never a laughing matter... except when it involves wieners! Wiener dogs that is.
Okay, so maybe Madonna's new album "Hard Candy" is number one on Billboard-but her top ranking didn't come without a price!Read More »from Madonna: Desperately Seeking Attention
On Tuesday the popstar was performing in Paris and opted to smooch a girl on stage for attention a la her 2003 MTV VMA performance with Britney Spears. "Why do I have this relationship with France?" she asked the 1,500 person crowd. "I'm always drawn to working with French people-and frenching French people! Vive la France!" Well unfortunately this repeat performance had its repercussions. Madge's daughter Lourdes, who witnessed the kiss, asked her mom if she was gay. We get that Madonna has always been a statement-maker and never been one to seek the approval of others, but when you're a mom we feel there's an innate responsibility to be, well, a mom! And honestly, no one really is shocked or even remotely interested in your calculated and overdone stage moments like same-sex kisses. Consider us bored and ready to move on.
How do you feel about Madonna's

Irvine Robbins co-founded Baskin-Robbins with his brother-in-law Burton Baskin in 1945 in Glandale California. 63 years later we are still enjoying the yummy scoops of unique flavors like Pink Bubblegum, Daiquiri Ice and Here Comes the Fudge, but sadly Irv Robbins can no longer partake in one of their delicious 31+ flavors. We are however happy to report that he lived a healthy and happy 90 years. So do yourself a favor and go get a sugar cone! [Gawker]

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesReports are in! Angie's double bump has two baby girls inside, and if they're anything like daughter Shiloh, these Jolie-Pitts will have zero problem stealing husbands from A-listers 20 years down the road! "Brad can't wait-he absolutely adores little girls," says a source close to the family. "And Angelina just loves seeing him and the other kids so excited and happy."
Watch your backs, ladies! [Star]
OMG, like, we totally always thought that Paris was like Barbie personified, and like, now she IS Barbie, like, for real! Well, kind of. The German fashion doll, "Steffi Love" will now be blessed with Paris' essence. Children in Germany rejoice as they already know her favorite catch phrase ("That's Hot") and sexual position. While Heath Ledger action figures are flying off shelves, who in their right mind would buy a Paris Hilton doll? [The Superficial]

Read More »from Heath Ledgerâ€™s Joker figures are already sold out!
Batman sequel "The Dark Knight" may not hit theaters till July, but people are lining up at toy stores to scoop up action figures of the Joker as played by the late Heath Ledger. One Toys 'R' Us employee confessed, "There are none left in the warehouse, either. You will be waiting a while if you want one." FAO Schwarz in New York and many other stores have yet to receive their shipments. Retailing for $9.99 in stores, we already found some going for $30 on eBay.
With this kind of interest, hype and desire to remember Heath, we can make a safe bet that Batman will be one huge blockbuster smash this summer!
Do you think it's weird the way people are buying up his memorabilia? Are you looking forward to the movie? [NY Post]

On January 26, Columbia student Masha Markova went to private party at New York nightspot 1Oak, where Lindsay Lohan was also hanging out, and put down her $11,000 blond mink coat with the jackets of other guests. Very foolish move-at the end of the night, the mink was gone. Funny thing though: Markova was paging through a magazine when she saw a picture of Lindsay wearing a familiar item. "It was my coat. It was no doubt," says Markova.Read More »from Outlandish celeb behavior of the day: Is Lindsay a thief?
Her lawyer called Lohan's attorney and threatened legal action and hours later 1Oak called. "They were very discreet, never mentioned a name or even the word 'coat.' They just said, 'We're going to bring you something.'" The result? Two days later the mink coat was returned, reeking of cigarettes and booze with a big rip in the lining. "I don't see how it could have been an accident," says Markova. She says she'd feel a lot better with an apology and a $10,000 rental fee. Ha!
Do you believe a big star like Lindsay would steal this coat? [People]

We admit it. Ever since Tom jumped on Oprah's couch we haven't really been able to take him seriously. Sure, we still went to see his past installment of Mission Impossible, but that over-zealous cackle of his is hard to shake from our minds.
Now 25 years after Risky Business (by the way-how this counts as a monumental anniversary that's been recognized countless times this past week is mind-blowing), Tom has launched a new website (http://www.tomcruise.com/) to share with us his love of film and give us a peek behind the scenes. How very lucky we are! When trance-like music comes on we're sure was composed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard himself, we're greeted with a semi-obnoxious welcome letter and a video montage tribute to his career three times as long as any achievement award Oscar winners video. Oh yeah, and it opens with the triumphant score to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Naturally.

Spoiler alert: Last night CW's "Gossip Girl" went to places no teen drama (that we can think of at the moment) has gone before-murder! In case you're out of the loop, Serena, played by Blake Lively, has had a terrible secret looming over her and a "friend" from the past has come back to NYC to blackmail her. Last night after much speculation about what it could be, Serena confided to BFF/Frenemy Blair that. she. IS A KILLER! Damn. But are they raising the bar or just desperate?
As for the murder, our initial guess actually was that maybe Serena during her bad girl phase hit someone in a drunken hit and run ala "I Know What You Did Last Summer." That didn't, however, stop us from being completely shocked as Serena uttered the words, "I killed someone."
Now the question is, who was it and how do you think she did it?
Choke them with an extension in the locker room?
Poison their Perrier in the cafeteria?
Push them down stairs in 5" Jimmy Choos?
Watch the clip and tell us your
