John Edwards' former aide, Andrew Young, appeared before a Federal Grand Jury Investigation last night at the Terry Sanford Federal Building in Raleigh, N.C.

Young, a longtime Edwards loyalist, met with the Feds regarding how his former employer spent the funds earmarked for his 2008 presidential campaign.

Yesterday, we reported how Andrew Young has been shopping a tell-all book about John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter and the cover-up surrounding it.

The book supposedly will detail how Edwards is the father of Hunter's baby  girl - not Young, despite his initial public claim of paternity - as well the alleged Rielle Hunter-John Edwards sex tape Young recently uncovered.

Sex tape or no sex tape, it now appears Young has greater motivation to come clean about the cover up than book royalties - he's out to save his own ass.

The National Enquirer reports that the cover-up was allegedly bankrolled by the late Fred Baron, an Edwards supporter who had been instrumental in making hush money payments to Rielle Hunter in the aftermath of her affair with John.

With John Edwards now under investigation for possible misuse of campaign funds funneled to his mistress, it is believed that Young, who originally took the fall for the politician, may be willing to spill the beans in exchange for immunity.

Conspiracy to misuse federal campaign funds for personal use is a felony, and with Young, the former fall guy, revealing what he knows now, he would not be liable for perjury if called to testify in a Federal Grand Jury investigation.

The Edwards campaign is alleged to have paid Hunter to leave town after the affair became public, as well as for her to keep quiet about DNA testing.

Despite being forced to admit sleeping with Rielle after the Enquirer busted him red-handed, Edwards has denied paternity and financial wrongdoing.

If you are a glutton for punishment, below you can listen to Brooke Hogan's new track, entitled, "Ur Not That Hot," off of her upcoming album Judgment Day.

We're not trying to drum up controversy. She really is dissing her. The full name of the track is "Ur Not That Hot f/ Stack$ & Hollywood Jit (Heidi Montag Diss)."

The song begins with a girl impersonating Heidi Montag (who along with Spencer Pratt, recently dissed Brooke Hogan), leaving a faux message for Brooke:

"Umm. Hey Brooke, what's up. This is Heidi Montag. I just want to let you know that I'm making a record and that your record ... better watch its back. And, if you think that Stack$ is awesome, just wait for Spencer. Bye."

While it's absurd that Brooke Hogan and Stack$ are even putting out music (term used loosely), we can't object to their bashing Heidi Montag in the intro.

After all, the 'Tag is a girl who thinks 9/11 was an inside job, population control is a myth and the government is trying to control our minds. Spooky stuff.

Drake has released the music video for his new song, "Best I Ever Had."

Think Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) could be talking about ... Rihanna?

Probably not, although Rihanna and Drake have been romantically linked - and even photographed together! - in recent months since she split with Chris Brown.

LOVE THE DRAKE: With his new song, Aubrey Graham is a real up-and-comer in the hip-hop community, and not just because of his alleged dalliances with Rihanna.

In any case, this newly-premiered video, the Canadian rapper is seen playing coach to a female basketball team who ends up getting trounced 91-14 by the end.

The video was filmed in Brooklyn, New York with Kanye West directing. Trey Songz, Fabolous and several artists from Lil Wayne's label are seen making cameos.

Michael Jackson's family has released a statement regarding the rumors about potential services for the star at his Neverland Ranch, near Santa Barbara, Calif.

The family rep says:

Michael Jackson, Debbie Rowe, Prince Michael, Paris

“Contrary to previous news reports, the Jackson family is officially stating that there will be no public or private memorial at Neverland. Plans are underway regarding a public memorial for Michael Jackson, and we will announce those plans shortly.”

Clearly, there's plenty of confusion and mixed signals surrounding this. As for what is known about Michael Jackson's funeral, here's what we have gathered:

  • It won't be until next week
  • It will not be at Neverland
  • It will be in the Los Angeles area, and the Staples Center (where the L.A. Lakers play) is being rumored as option but this has not been decided.

As for Michael Jackson's will (written in 2002) and what it contains, no specific instructions regarding the singer's burial were given to our knowledge.

A private pathologist hired by David Carradine's family to perform a second autopsy has determined that the 72-year-old actor died of asphyxiation.

How he came to asphyxiate in Thailand is still anyone's guess, but that seems to be the conclusion as to how the Kill Bill star met his end in June.

A maid found Carradine hanging in the closet of his Bangkok hotel room, and it was soon confirmed by various officials that a rope was tied to his neck and genitals, prompting speculation that the star was engaged in auto-erotic asphyxiation.

But he did not kill himself, according to the report.

Judging by the way Carradine was bound with his hands above his head, Dr. Michael Baden concluded that he did not take his own life and requested security footage in addition to pass-key data from his hotel to further probe the death.

Specifically, to find out whether or not someone was in the room with the actor when he died. Stressing that these were still only preliminary findings, Baden said that his full report will not be ready for at least a week if not more.

At least one shocking death photo of Carradine has allegedly been run by a Thai newspaper, but no U.S. tabloids have reprinted it in the month since his passing.

Life certainly seems easy for Robert Pattinson.

He stars in popular movies, he's ogled at by women everywhere, he goes home to Kristen Stewart almost every night.

But the man that plays Edward Cullen is always looking over his shoulder, wondering who the next young stud that threatens his place in the Hollywood pecking order will be.

Enter Jamie Campbell-Bower.

This rising star is also British, also dons wild hair and has also landed a critical role in New Moon, one directly opposed to that of Pattinson. Campbell-Bower will play Caius, the leader of the Volturi. It's safe to say that he and Cullen don't agree on one major issue:

Edward wants to love Bella, while Caius was to kill Bella. Awkward!

Jamie Campbell-Bower is about to make life a lot more difficult for Robert Pattinson, on and off screen.

Who will win the battle between Campbell-Bower and Pattinson? The latter is next starring in a random movie called Remember Me, while the former will portray Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Advantage, Jaime? You tell us.

She's made a name for herself by befriending a boy wizard.

Soon, she starts life as a student at Columbia University.

But there's another side to Emma Watson, an edgier, sexy persona that is on full display in the latest issue of UK Elle.

In this month's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Watson will reprise her beloved role as Hermione Granger. While a portion of the movie is dedicated to her character's crush on close friend Ron Weasley, we don't understand why it takes Hermione so long to land him.

All she had to do was show Ron the following images:

Kate Gosselin's career is drying up faster than Jon's sex drive.

First, her reality show went on hiatus until August.

Then her new cookbook was delayed indefinitely.

Now her clothing line is up in the air.

The reality star's promotion deal with Healthex has been shelved amid her recent divorce filing and separation with husband Jon Gosselin, a company rep said.

"Our project is on hold while she focuses on her family," Healthtex rep Scott Pryzwansky told Radar Online in a brief statement.

Kate Gosselin was hawking the clothing line as recently as May on the Rachael Ray Show. She handed out a gift bag that contained what the host described as "a Healthtex outfit [Kate] helped design and create."

The fall line is still available at Wal-Mart, but Kate is not involved.

On Monday - one week after she and Jon filed divorce papers - her Christian publisher, Zondervan, announced that her upcoming cookbook, Love Is in the Mix: Making Meals into Memories, wouldn't be hitting stores this November as planned.

TLC also confirmed Jon & Kate Plus 8 was going on hiatus until August 3. Viewership was down 77 percent on Monday's "retrospective" episode.

It's okay, Kate. Just get deals in place to pose for bikini photos and sell them to the paparazzi. It's made millionaires out of Spencer and Heidi.

Sorry, Emily Deschanel.

We like Bones as much as the next website, but we don't have a lot of confidence about your chances in this Fashion Face-Off.

The star of that Fox hit was spotted out recently in an outfit that shows her affection for leopards. Incredibly, this same shirt was worn a few days later by Megan Fox.

The odds of that happening are about as low as the odds of readers voting for Deschanel over Fox, but, hey, you never know! Check out the stars below and then answer our poll question:

Emily Deschanel vs. Megan Fox

Who wears this outfit better?
