As we've talked about previously on more than one occasion, Katie Holmes is modeling in the Spring 2009 campaign for Miu Miu, an offshoot of the Prada brand.

The photo shoot was taken last November by the same photographers who shot Victoria Beckham and David Beckham for their Emporio Armani underwear ads.

Previous years' Miu Miu models include Kristen Dunst, Lindsay Lohan, Drew Barrymore and Chloe Sevigny. A fairly exclusive celebrity fashion club, for sure.

Here's Katie Holmes taking over this esteemed role ...

Questionable Katie Holmes fashion choices of the past few months are well documented, but the company is apparently confident she can move merchandise.

Good luck with that. Click to enlarge more Katie Holmes Miu Miu ads ...

On a day in which Tiger Woods usually hoists a trophy at San Diego's Torrey Pines course, the world’s No. 1 golfer celebrated an even greater achievement:

His first son was born.

Woods announced on his website early Monday that his wife, Elin Nordegren, had given birth to a boy, Charlie Axel Woods. This is the couple’s second adorable child following the birth of daughter Sam Alexis Woods in June 2007.

“Elin and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our son, Charlie Axel Woods, who was born on Sunday, February 8, 2009,” Woods wrote in a statement.

GET PSYCHED! Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are pumped about baby #2.

“Both Charlie and Elin are doing great and we want to thank everyone for their sincere best wishes and kind thoughts. Sam is very excited to be a big sister and we feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful family.

“I want to thank all of our doctors, nurses and the hospital staff for their personal and professional care. We look forward to introducing Charlie at the appropriate time, and again thanks from all of us for your kindness and support.”

Pictures of Charlie Axel Woods will be posted in due time. For now, click to enlarge more photos of Tiger, Elin Nordegren and daughter Sam Alexis Woods ...

Chris Brown surrendered to Los Angeles police on Sunday evening regarding a felony battery investigation of the R&B singer, LAPD officer Karen Smith confirmed.

"He turned himself in around 7 p.m. to one of our stations and is being interviewed by detectives right now," Smith said of Brown, 19, who was taken into custody at around 6:30 p.m. PST and was booked for criminal threat at 7:41 p.m.

He posted $50,000 bail and was released. At least one celebrity news source says the victim in the alleged battery was his girlfriend, Rihanna.

The case is being presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office; additional charges may be filed. He is due in court March 5.

Chris Brown is being investigated for an incident that occurred early Sunday morning near Hancock Park in Los Angeles after an unidentified woman phoned 911.

The woman claimed she got in a fight with the singer and he attacked her.

Police say the woman had visible injuries. When officers arrived, they found the victim, but Brown had already left the scene, police say.

While Brown appeared unscathed, sources tell E! News that the alleged victim was in fact Rihanna, 20, and she suffered visible bruises on her face during an early morning confrontation. No report has officially named the victim.

UPDATE: The Los Angeles Times has now identified Rihanna as the alleged victim as well, citing LAPD sources familiar with the case. Due to the department's protocol, however, victims' names are not released to the public at this stage.

Both Brown and Rihanna pulled out of Sunday's Grammy Awards at the last minute. Just hours before his arrest, the two looked happy as ever at a Grammys pre-party, as you can see in these Chris Brown and Rihanna pictures ...

Well, the good news about Jessica Simpson’s performance in Grand Rapids last week is that nobody’s talking about her now-infamous weight gain.

The bad news is that people are calling it a “meltdown.” Reports she mouthed “sorry” to the audience after forgetting lyrics are never encouraging.

From what we can tell in the video clips below, though, meltdown may be a bit of a stretch. Is she good at singing? Not remotely. But from what we can tell, she didn't implode. Here's a clip of her singing (term used loosely).

A big celeb gossip story over the past couple of weeks has been Britney Spears' refusal to travel around the country on her Circus tour (kicking off March 3 in Louisiana) unless her kids, Sean Preston and Jayden James, could go with her.

Kevin Federline apparently has no such issues.

The forever-aspiring rapper got down over the weekend in his home away from home - a Las Vegas nightclub - and the only baby in sight, as confirmed by these pictures from TMZ, was Victoria Prince, his volleyball player girlfriend...

The FedEx Man Smokin'

Hey, a man's got to party in Vegas sometimes, even if he has sole custody of his kids because their mom went bat$h!t a year ago. And Sean Preston and Jayden James can't always be around to spy for mommy on V-Prince. It's hard work.

From what we've read and heard, Victoria seems to be a good influence on Kevin. Or at least isn't making things any worse. Click to enlarge more pics of the hot couple ...

Snoop Dogg would be so proud.

Deranged pop singer Amy Winehouse, battling serious hard drug addiction, has apparently fashioned a new plan to break her worst habits: just smoke weed.

She's Baaaaaaaaack!

Pals say the "Rehab" singer, 25, has been smoking up 10 spliffs (joints) a day during her never-ending St. Lucia vacation to suppress cravings for hard drugs.

Amazingly, those close to A-Dubs are encouraging this $1,000-a-week habit - as it's been giving her the munchies and helping her get back to a healthy weight.

A close friend said: "Amy hasn’t touched crack or cocaine for months. She's been good. Drugs are easy to get in St. Lucia but she has stuck to smoking dope."

TEN JOINTS A DAY: Hey, at least it's not crack.

"The amazing thing is she smokes all morning then sees her personal trainer in the afternoon and is put through a gruelling workout," added the friend.

When she's not shagging Josh Bowman or her new boy toy Andrew, Amy Winehouse has also kept busy giving singing lessons to kids at a school near her villa.

The head teacher was said to be horrified when the train wreck turned up at class wearing a bra and skimpy vest, however. Anyone surprised?

"They scrabbled around and found a spare PE kit for her to wear," said a source at the school. "And because she’s so tiny, it fit fairly well."

Awesome. Back in the UK, Amy's estranged husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is surely taking notes as he prepares his list of reasons to divorce her.

A serious family emergency caused Usher to cancel his performance at a pre-Grammy Awards party last night - and one celebrity gossip report claims it's because his wife, Tameka Foster, is in trouble after having cosmetic surgery.

Music bigwig Clive Davis announced at his Pre-Grammy Bash that Usher's last minute cancellation was due to a "serious injury in the family."

Foster, Tameka

According to Access Hollywood, Tameka had "experienced complications from plastic surgery" in Brazil. What work she was having done is unclear.

Access claims a neurosurgeon is on the way to South America to assist Mrs. Usher - who just gave birth to their second child back in December.

An earlier report said that Tameka Foster was dead after botched plastic surgery, but Usher's rep quickly denied that. It is believed, however, that Foster did indeed suffer serious complications from a cosmetic procedure.

Above all else, we hope Tameka Foster is alright.

But we also look forward to seeing if she is worthy of joining our celebrity plastic sugery hall of fame! It's an elite group, but we think she can do it!

Skating with Celebrities winners Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler were married on Saturday, the couple confirms to People magazine.

"It was awesome and I feel amazing," Swanson said. "The ceremony was perfect even though Lloyd's cell phone went off at the end. He forgot to put it on vibrate!"

The actress and the Canadian figure skating champ, who met while competing on the FOX reality show three years ago, tied the knot in front of 100 family and friends at a hotel in San Luis Obispo, California.

"We wanted to celebrate Lloyd and I coming together as a family," says Kristy Swanson, referring to 2-year-old son Magnus, and Lloyd Eisler's two children from his previous marriage, Ethan Harley, 4, and Seth Keenan, 3.

Swanson, 39, wore a strapless ivory gown by Amy Michelson as she walked down the aisle to Van Morrison's "Crazy Love." Eisler, 45, wore a tux by Nicole Miller.

"We're excited about the future," says Eisler. "Kristy is getting back into acting and I'm building my coaching career. Hopefully everything will work out."

Kristy Swanson is best known for her role in the 1992 movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Eisler is a former Olympic figure skater.

The two join a host of celebrity marriages over the past week, including Anna Torv and Mark Valley, and Lisa Loeb and Roey Hershkovitz!

In engagement news, Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy announced they will tie the knot, as will Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. Congrats to all!

People need to lay off Michael Phelps. Hitting the bong isn't exactly a performance-enhancer - nor does it make the swimmer a lying, cheating disgrace.

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, the best player in baseball, normally only makes celebrity gossip headlines for his actions off the field.

This story does continue that trend, although it's potentially far more scandalous than the railing of various manly strippers or even his now-infamous "affair of the heart" with Madonna while still married to pregnant wife Cynthia Rodriguez.

A-Rod tested positive for steroids while playing for the Texas Rangers in 2003, when he won the first of his three MVP awards, according to Sports Illustrated.

The supposedly anonymous results were seized in April 2004 by federal agents in the BALCO steroids ring investigation, which did not involve the Rod.

According to the report, Alex Rodriguez was one of 104 players on a list of positive tests for steroids that year, when baseball starting instituting "survey" testing to "determine the extent of steroids use in the game." The extent? Extensive.

Seen here cheering on Madonna, Alex Rodriguez is likely to hear even fewer cheers than usual (if that's possible) in 2009 amid reports of a past positive steroids test.

Having repeatedly denied having used steroids throughout what has been a prolific career (at least in the months of April-September), A-Rod did not comment.

"You'll have to ask the union," he said. "I'm not saying anything."

Major League Baseball's executive vice president for labor relations would not discuss the validity of the story, saying in a statement that the 2003 survey testing was only intended to be informational, and neither disciplinary nor anonymous.

While Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to face discipline over the findings - as baseball did not begin attaching punishment to positive tests until 2004 - the story most certainly will further tarnish Rodriguez's much-scrutinized career.

Jesus Luz is probably looking pretty good to Madonna right now.

Someone must have watched He's Just Not That Into You this weekend!

Grey's Anatomy star Chyler Leigh, who already has two children with husband Nathan West, is currently expecting her third - and has an interesting name picked out when their little girl arrives in May, she recently told The Insider.

"We're going with Aniston," the 26-year-old actress said.

Who knows what the Grey's Anatomy star thinking or even if she's serious. But in the grand scheme of celebrity baby names, well, it's no Bronx Mowgli.

The bar has been set pretty low. So low it will be hard for anyone to sneak under.

She and West are proud parents of son Noah, 5, and daughter Taelyn, 2. Their youngest will definitely have good genes - even if she can't sponge off of Jennifer Aniston!
