Forget Harry Potter pictures for a minute - what about Harry Potter music?

As fans wait for Order of the Phoenix to hit theaters next summer, they can rock out to groups based on J.K. Rowlings' sensation.

There's Harry and the Potters, Draco and the Malfoys and The Hermione Crookshanks Experience, all ensuring that kids can read and listen to tales about their favorite magician. We can't speak on the talent of these bands, but we can guarantee they sing better than Brooke Hogan.

The pioneers and most successful in this new music genre is Harry and the Potters, a band comprised of two brothers whose mantra is everyone should read books and then pick up instruments (regardless of whether or not you can play) and sing about it.

The band plays around the Boston area where it's based, but in the summer takes its tour on the road ... to libraries. This past tour they invited Draco and the Malfoys to join them.

And based on this Kevin Federline picture, maybe they actually came cross Britney's husband reading in one of these barracks of books.

Justin Timberlake should send Teddy Geiger a basket of muffins or something.

Even though JT isn't always so welcoming to new artists (see Taylor Hicks comments), Geiger and Mr. SexyBack himself have something in common: with the latest issue of Seventeen magazine, Geiger joins Timberlake as the only men to grace that publication's cover since 2002.

Inside, Teddy bears his soul in an exclusive tell-all interview, revealing his not so smooth history with the ladies.

"I was terrified of girls until sophomore year of high school. I couldn't even borrow pencils from them. I'd have to wait until the teacher called me out on it, like, 'Does anybody have a pencil for Teddy?' because I'd be too scared to ask the girl next to me."

Wow. That makes Jon Heder seem like a man's man.

Geiger also touched on his experience with stage fright, admitting:

"There were times I'd get so nervous I couldn't make it through a song. I'd make a mistake or talk too fast."

Well, many of us can relate to that, Ted, don't worry. But The Gossip finds your favorite perfume hard to forgive: Paris Hilton perfume.

What does that even smell like? Stale sex and old money?

Okay, we admit it: We weren't exactly shocked that Harry Morton and Lindsay Lohan broke up. Nor did we care.

But this news is a little surprising and sad: Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker have split up.

Eva on the Red Carpet

"They did break up. It's amicable," a source told People magazine. "They are talking and trying to figure the best course of action for their future. They are trying to work things out."

So, what led to such an end? Was Karrine Steffans involved in yet another sordid relationship demise? No, not at all.

"It's distance and demanding careers and not living in same city," said the source. "It didn't happen yesterday. It's been going on for a while."

That's too bad. And a little shocking because Longoria recently went on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and seemed to get along perfectly well with a cardboard cut-out of her man. Check out this Eva Longoria picture and see for yourself.

In an earlier statement issued by Longoria's rep, Liza Anderson, on Friday, she said: "Eva and Tony are going through a very difficult time right now, just like any other couple with extremely demanding careers."

While Desperate Housewives has been filming in Los Angeles, the San Antonio Spurs departed Texas on Friday afternoon to begin a training camp in France.

So, now that she's actually available, we bet Eva could earn even more money than Jessica Biel could for an auctioned off date. Interesting.

Sexy or kissable? Which would you rather be? As news spread that Jessica Alba was recently named the most kissable celebrity in the world, another young actress took home the honor of sexiest.

Scarlett Johansson Cleavage Picture

According to Esquire, Scarlett Johansson is the most alluring human being on the planet. The 21-year-old actress poses in come-hither garb on the cover and inside pages of the magazine's November issue, on newsstands Oct. 18.

On the cover, she wears a bra and a white Calvin Klein mini-dress; while the Scarlett Johansson pictures inside show her as an "enigmatic trailer-park temptress," the magazine says.

Johansson, whose screen credits include The Black Dahlia, Lost in Translation and Match Point, says she would rather be admired for attributes other than sex appeal.

"What about my brain? What about my heart? What about my kidneys and my gallbladder?" she asks, addressing all the hoopla about her curves in an interview in the magazine.

Relax, Scarlett. We don't disagree with the ranking, but we do have one question: how the heck dif Josh Hartnett bag that?!?

Kristin Cavallari, who dazzled us guest starring as a lesbian cheerleader on Veronica Mars (or appeared on Veronica Mars without anyone knowing), is making another giant acting leap... to saucy sorority girl.

That's right, the Laguna Beach alumna and tabloid mainstay is set to star in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, which begins shooting in October.

Blonde KC

Charlie's Angels" director McG, who is also one of the geniuses behind the worst show in history, The OC, is one of the producers. Among the writers is Adam Jay Epstein, who penned Not Another Teen Movie. This is sure to be a classic in the making. Then again, any project that provides us with more Kristin Cavallari pics can only be a good thing.

Cavallari's character, Kailey, will put the nerds through their sexual-awakening paces as she twirls them around her well-manicured finger, and she's the best friend of the Pi Delta Pi sorority queen, played by Katie Cassidy.

Wow. If the producers could somehow get Lauren Conrad into the movie as Kristin's chief sorority rival, we'd buy tickets in advance.

Wannabe punk Avril Lavigne took a break from spitting at photographers last night, but worry not, her husband, Deryck Whibley took over -- this time with possible consequences, according to the sleuths at TMZ.com.

After a night of partying at the opening of Area nightclub in Hollywood, the Sum 41 frontman quickly hocked a loogie at a cameramen, hitting him square in the glasses.

Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne Pic

The saliva soaked photographer quickly took action, though, looking for a cop to report the incident to. However, his effort proved to be futile, as the only policeman nearby simply told him to call the LAPD.

THE LESSON LEARNED: Apparently, being the lead singer of an awful rock band makes you better than everyone else. Spitting on someone is illegal in the U.S., something the Canadian-born duo should learn, and fast! Man, why does everything have to be so complicated! Sorry.

This event follows a two-night tirade from Avril, where she launched an oral offensive on two separate photogs, including one of TMZ's own. Classy move, a$$hole. Really bad ass, too. You're a regular Russell Crowe. $100 says the editors of T.H. Gossip could demolish this Deryck Whibley jackass in a fight. Rock star shmock star. We're coming for you Deryck! And tell your parents to learn basic spelling!

Madonna may have lost out to Jesus in a recent comparison, but she appears to have the number of Britney Spears - about 50 million of them.

According to the 2007 edition of the Guinness Book of Records Madonna is the highest paid female singer on the planet, taking that title away from Spears, who had held it since 2001 after earning around $38 million the year before.

T.H. Gossip delights in bringing you the pop culture observations of ESPN's Bill Simmons, a.k.a. the Sports Guy, along with the rants of his lovely wife, a.k.a. the Sports Gal.

In the most recent edition of Bill's mailbag, he responds to reader questions about sports, sure... but more importantly, he addresses the current happenings on Laguna Beach as well as the Screech sex tape. See below.

-------

Scott (New York, NY): What is Cameron's problem on Laguna Beach? Can't he see that Trish is a thousand times hotter than that wet blanket Jessica? And yes I am 26 years old and watch a show about high school kids.

Bill Simmons: The funniest thing about Cameron (below, right) is that he has no discernable personality at all. There's just nothing there. He's a complete zero. And yet every girl is falling over themselves for him. Hey, guess what, ladies? In 15 years, he'll be a bald guy with a huge head and no personality! Enjoy.

Steve (Menlo Park, CA): Have you heard that the actor (Dustin Diamond, below left) who played Screech has a sex video coming out? What's the title got to be? I'm voting for Saved by the Smell.

Bill Simmons: Is that true? Is that a step up or a step down from appearing in  Celebrity Boxing?

We're gonna build the suspense just a tiny bit longer.

First, we'll say that Nick Carter opened up about his sex life on the Howard Stern Radio Show this week (no, not the Howard Stern that married Anna Nicole Smith).

House of Carters

And why will he never forget the first girl got it on with? Because she grew up to become the infamous Florida teacher who bedded a 13-year-old student!

Indeed, the former member of The Backstreet Boys said he dated Debbie LeFave, 23, for 18 months when they were classmates, ending things with her when he learned from pals "she had cheated on me with a girl."

He kept quiet when the scandal broke because, "my publicist is like, stay as far away from that [bleep] as you can."

Probably good advice. Meanwhile, Carter also discussed his sex sessions with Paris Hilton.

"In the very beginning, you know, she was literally cleaning my carpet in my apartment ... trying to act all domesticated," he said. "And then, before you know it, a month or two goes by and it's back to the old nose up in the air and who are you?"

Of all the women he's slept with, Hilton wasn't atop the list - which is strange because she's on top of most guys. Zing!

LeFave was "probably No. 1. But maybe that's just because it was my first. Actually a lot of the girls I've just had the best sex with or best anything with have been just normal girls."

As opposed to abnormal girls. Like Brooke Hogan.

Nick is babbling away now to promote his new show E! show, House of Carters, in which his life is chronicled alongside brother, Aaron Carter. We can't wait!

We don't know if President Bush was too busy admiring Matt Lauer again, but he didn't make time for Borat.

Yes, the faux-TV-reporter from Kazakhstan and alter-ego of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen went all the way to the gates of the White House yesterday to invite the "Mighty Warlord Premier Bush" to a screening of his upcoming movie, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Yellow Suspenders

Sadly, the bushy-moustachioed Borat was turned away by Secret Service agents as he tried to hand a paper invitation through the White House gates to a security guard.

Indeed, he was turned away faster than Bam Margera at a meeting for people who did not have sex with Jessica Simpson.

Earlier, Borat - to the amusement of the press - "blasted" the "mythmaking "of the rival Uzbek government and their assertions that Kazakhs "do not drink fermented horse urine, give death penalty for baking bagels, or export over 300 tonnes of human pubis per year."

If Bush does end up accepting Borat's invitation, he'll be in unique company; the supposed reporter said that he invited other "American dignitaries" like O.J. Simpson and "Mel Gibsons." to talk with thim.
