Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, along with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, hosted a bash for their new neighbors, Brits Victoria and David Beckham, at the Museum of Contemporary Art's Geffen Contemporary in Los Angeles July 22.

The A-list guests included newlywed Eva Longoria (but no Tony Parker), Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, Rihanna, Eve, Brooke Shields and husband Chris Henchy, Adrian Grenier and Queen Latifah.

Becks

On the menu: A tower of chocolate cupcakes, hamburgers, fries, chicken wings, pizza, mashed potatoes and salad. How pissed is Britney Spears that she missed this!?

Celeb DJ Samantha Ronson â€" Lindsay Lohan's pal â€" spinned tunes, including "Rehab" from Amy Winehouse, John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane," and the Spice Girls hit "Wannabe."

The former Posh Spice got "really shy and did not sing along," says a guest.

Stevie Wonder entertained the crowd with a 15-minute set that included his hit "Signed, Sealed, Delivered." TomKat sang along, while Smith picked up wife Pinkett so she could see Wonder in action, the witness says.

"This is amazing! I can't believe Stevie Wonder is singing!" an elated Victoria Beckham gushed to her BFF Katie Holmes.

Sadly, no Suri Cruise sightings were reported by witnesses.

Later on, Will Smith grabbed the mic for an impromptu rap session, splitting up the dance floor into two sections, going back and forth to both sides to see who was having more fun, demanding that each side scream louder. Then, he did some splits!

"The look on Tom's face was priceless," a witness says.

By 1:40 a.m., Tom Cruise, Holmes and the Beckhams called it a night.

Quote-unquote singer and train wreck Britney Spears continues to go wild with each passing day, wearing no underwear and making absolutely no sense. But we rarely get to hear about her slow-moving, oft-nude meltdown in her own words.

That is about to change.

Britney Spears Live in Germany

TMZ reports that the one-time icon recently called up OK! magazine's main line and asked for OK! Editor-in-Chief Sara Ivens. Miraculously, the receptionist believed it really was Britney Spears, and she was put through to Ivens.

It seems Britney Spears wanted to talk business (or whatever her equivalent of that might be) and give a tell-all interview to the magazine. Not surprisingly, Ivens agreed.

Britney is expected to dish on her beloved babies, Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline (above), her drama with mom Lynne, Fed-Ex, her new album and more.

The issue is expected to hit the celebrity news circuit next week, y'all. We'll have the exclusive interview for you as soon as we get our grubby hands on it.

Mindy McCready Mug ShotCountry singer and venerable train wreck Mindy McCready was arrested Saturday in Florida.

Mindy McCready, 31, was then officially charged with battery and resisting arrest.

McCready, who had a No. 1 hit in 1996 with "Guys Do It All the Time," has struggled in recent years. To say the least.

In 2004, she was convicted of fraudulently obtaining prescription painkillers. She was on probation for that offense when she was charged with DUI in 2005.

She was found not guilty of the DUI charge, but guilty of driving on a suspended license. Hmmmmm. Sound familiar, Paris Hilton?

Mindy McCready was released on bail (set at $1,000) Saturday, according to TMZ, and is scheduled to appear in court August 14.

In an interview with WINK TV in Florida, McCready says she is considering filing charges against a Sheriff's deputy for what she calls brutality.

McCready told the TV station the bruises on her body were put there by deputies. She also says she was starved in jail and maced for no reason.

According to the Sheriff's Department, deputies were called to the house because of a domestic dispute. When they arrived, McCready's mother claimed her daughter became violent after drinking.

Officers say they saw scratches on the mother's face and say McCready's breath reeked of alcohol. McCready reportedly denied everything and called her mother "crazy."

Man, this sounds about 10 times worse than the ongoing feud between Lynne Spears and daughter Britney Spears. Except for the alcohol abuse part.

According to the TV station, McCready resisted arrest, and had to be restrained. That's when she hit her her head on the ground, which caused the gash on her face in her mug shot (above), which is one of the best celebrity mug shots we've seen in some time.

Mindy McCready was then taken to jail, where deputies say she acted so disruptive they were forced to use pepper spray to control her.

Yikes. It must be nice for Nicole Richie and her unborn child to see what they have to look forward to in the slammer.

Plenty of guys would love to be tackled by Lauren Conrad. Right now, Brody Jenner isn't one of them.

She's smart, sexy and by all accounts, fabulous. But don't think she can't deliver a vicious blind side hit while playing free safety.

LC Waving

The beautiful star of The Hills was playing a little tackle football at a Malibu beach barbecue thrown by her ex-boyfriend Brody Jenner, the model and son of Olympic great Bruce Jenner and actress Linda Thompson.

They broke up after briefly dating, but Lauren and Brody are still friends - at least we think so. After their football game, we're not so sure!

"Lauren tackled him too hard and broke his finger. He had to be rushed to the hospital," a New York Post spy reports.

Never a party pooper, Brody Jenner returned to his bash a few hours later "with his hand in a cast, yelled ‘I need a beer!'"

He was given a Rolling Rock, which he chugged.

We're glad Brody - who once dated Kristin Cavallari and Nicole Richie - is recovering. He learned his lesson, though - despite that gorgeous smile and laid-back demeanor, LC is no cream puff. Too bad she couldn't have given Spencer Pratt a broken nose in the same game.

Where have you gone, Joslyn Noel Morse?

Probably to a pricey gentlemen's club somewhere in Las Vegas. She is a stripper, after all. Although we meant that more as a rhetorical question.

Alex Rodriguez Details Cover

In any case, embattled New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez was in good spirits Friday, reading from his new children's book entitled "Out of the Ballpark" at FAO Schwarz.

With Alex Rodriguez was wife Cynthia Rodriguez, who stayed by his side despite recent revelations of his extramarital liaisons, and their two-year-old daughter, Natasha.

Despite a turbulent two months, Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez are all smiles.

In late May, Stray-Rod was spotted at a Toronto strip club with stripper Joslyn Noel Morse. He was heckled later that week at Boston's Fenway Park by fans in Morse masks.

With the exception of an explicit tank top (leading to the F-Rod headlines), Cynthia Rodriguez never seemed to make a big deal of it, and Alex has continued to hit home runs (on the field, that is) for the mediocre Yankees at a torrid pace.

FAO Schwarz donated 15 percent of all sales during the event to Alex's charity, the A-Rod Family Foundation. Okay, so maybe he isn't entirely a jerk. Just don't start hanging with Michael Vick, Alex. Please, don't.

Thanks to People for these notes from the world of celebrity romance ...

  • Sacha Baron Cohen and his pregnant, longtime girlfriend Isla Fisher were spotted eating dinner with two male companions at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. The couple talked and laughed for hours with their meal. At one point, Fisher got up and sat on Sacha Baron Cohen's lap.
  • The sexy The Girl Next Door, 24 and Captivity actress Elisha Cuthbert and her hockey player boyfriend, Sean Avery, partied it up at Hyde and looked "really sweet together," holding hands, according to an observer. The pair shared a drink as they chatted up friends and each other.

  • On hand to help friend Justin Timberlake, who was hosting the opening of his N.Y. City restaurant Southern Hospitality, Lance Bass made time for another important guy in his life... new boyfriend Pedro Andrade. Once inside the eatery, Lance Bass and his new beau took a seat near Timberlake, chowing down on biscuits and fried onion rings while chatting up one another.
  • Actress Brittany Murphy and her new husband, thief / con-artist screenwriter Simon Monjack, kept close company during a screening of the film Love and Other Disasters - which stars Brittany Murphy - as part of Los Angeles' Outfest.

Our apologies for somehow missing this Britney Spears picture in the past week. We don't know the circumstances behind it, but what really is there to say at this point?

Britney Spears. No underwear. Again.

No, that's not Daimon Shippen holding her in this photo (too bad for him). It may have been taken on the same day as Britney's impromptu stripping and swimming bonanza.

Sigh. It was only a matter of time until those bare buns were exposed to the whole world again. With Britney Spears, nude photos, nipple slips and crotch shots are second nature.

You know, like putting on makeup, riding a bicycle, going to clubs, hitting one's own mother or being an absentee parent to Jayden James Federline.

Yeah, we have no idea what the f--k Christina Aguilera is talking about. Britney? A good mom? Come on, Xtina. Just stick to cranking out hit songs and looking hot as hell, okay?

Anyway, this is the latest view of Britney Spears and her ass, which appears to be on the chubby side these days. Not that we're complaining, just saying. Enjoy the view, fans.

After all, this is something only 100 million others have seen on their computer screens before, and only a few dozen have been lucky enough to experience in the flesh.

Stripper mistresses (Joslyn Noel Morse) and baby mama drama (Tom Brady) make for good celebrity gossip. A federal indictment on dogfighting charges? That's another story.

A pop star (Britney Spears) buying a $3,000 dog she will neglect in a few days is sad, but still funny celebrity news. A federal indictment on dogfighting charges? Not so much.

Yes, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has managed to turn the worlds of sports, Hollywood gossip and animal rights on their respective heads this week.

Friday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with animal welfare officials inside NFL headquarters Friday as about 50 PETA demonstrators took post outside, urging him to suspend Vick following his indictment.

"Sack Vick! Sack Vick!" chanted the demonstrators, organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as they walked peacefully in front of the Park Avenue building.

Many held dogs who had "Sack Vick" signs on their backs and one woman brought a pit bull, the breed killed in the dogfighting ring that the Atlanta quarterback is accused of sponsoring.

Yikes. If anyone out there is happy, it's Beyonce and her fur-wearing diva pals, as someone new far much more worthy of PETA's wrath has now emerged.

The leaders of the demonstration focused on Goodell's recent suspension of Tennessee's Adam "Pacman" Jones for one year under the NFL's "personal conduct" policy, though Jones has not been convicted of any crime.

"We think they should do the same with Michael Vick," said Dan Shannon, an assistant director of campaigns for PETA. "We don't think their 'wait and see' attitude goes far enough. If they suspended Pacman Jones, they can suspend Michael Vick."

After Vick's indictment, the NFL said it would monitor legal developments in the case. Michael Vick is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

On Friday, though, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said:

"We agree with them that dogfighting is cruel, degrading and illegal. The alleged activities are very disturbing and we are extremely disappointed Michael Vick has put himself in this position. We are having extensive dialogue with numerous groups and individuals... and are reviewing all of our options to deal with this as quickly as possible."

An attorney for the Humane Society - which recently criticized Britney for buying a purebred pup on a whim - said she was disappointed in the NFL stance on Vick.

"There is a precedent in the Jones suspension," Sherry Ramsey said, adding that her group wrote to the NFL in May, offering to help educate players about dogfighting.

Following months being kept under wraps (and blankets and crates), Jayden James Federline was finally revealed to the outside world yesterday.

Celebrity photo agency X17 spotted Jayden James out with his big brother and crazy mom, on a l'il sojourn to the picturesque harbor in Marina del Rey.

She's So Back, Baby

Unfortunately, it was too choppy to head out into the rough waters of the Bay, so Britney Spears' planned boat ride was nixed and she stayed put in the protected marina.

Fortunately, that meant clear pictures of Jayden James Federline. Photos of the youngest spawn of Britney Spears and Kevin Federline at long last! Peep it ...
 

ALL PHOTO CREDITS: X17 Online

Her new assistant (or is that her pal Lucy Walsh, we're not sure) was along for the ride as Britney proudly displayed Jayden James, along with his bro Sean Preston.

So cute! What the heck took her so long? Sean P. looks jealous, but he'll deal with it. It's nice to see Jayden James Federline looking a little less obese than the last time we saw him.

Lauren Conrad was seen recently on a Malibu beach wearing a bikini. That would be enough for this celebrity gossip site, but in even more interesting news, LC may have a new love!

X17, the agency that actually takes many of the celebrity photos we analyze, laugh at and drool over on a daily basis, spotted Lauren and her possible new beau. See below:

Hills Hotties

What will be interesting to see is whether this new guy will be revealed on The Hills, LC's hit reality show, which returns August 13, or if filming has already wrapped.

Last season, Lauren Conrad briefly dated Brody Jenner - a relationship we already knew began (and ended) in real life before it was chronicled on MTV.

Go to X17 for more LC photos and video from her day at the beach. And if anyone knows who this new guy is, please leave a comment below and let us know!

In any case, it's good to see Lauren Conrad having fun... and sporting a pretty toned physique! We're also glad to see her with someone other than Jenner ... or Jason Wahler.

Also on the plus side? Spencer Pratt is not in these photos. Woohoo!
