It might not get any cooler than Taylor Swift.

Already one of the more grounded, respected, popular singers on the planet, Taylor helped her reputation even more by making the dreams of a few Auburn University students come true. Here's what went down:

In January, Michael Wekall and Ryan Leander started the website A Hug From Taylor Swift. Their goal? To receive a hug from Taylor Swift. D'uh!

The pair posted videos and made online pleas to the star, which were soon met with a challenge from Taylor herself: perform some good deeds, encourage others to do the same, and perhaps the dream of an in-person meeting would come true.

Michael and Ryan did as they were asked - and Swift made good on her promise.

Yesterday, Wekall and Leander urged students to meet them for a special karaoke session. Soon after the group completed a rendition of "You Belong With Me," Swift appeared on stage, donning a "Hug from Mike and Ryan" t-shirt.

Fast forward to the four-minute mark below to get to the especially cool part:

Seriously, how awesome is Taylor Swift?!?

Jon and Kate Gosselin are about to get their learn on.

The reality TV parents have each been required to go to a court-mandated parenting class, and we hope for the sake of the couple's eight children that:

  1. Jon postpones his rich cougar search long enough to show up
  2. Kate listens better than she did on Dancing with the Stars

The judge presiding over the bitter custody dispute ordered both Jon and Kate to complete a three-hour parenting class titled "Children in the Middle."

  • Kate and Steve Neild
  • Big Pimpin' Jon

These two could use a parenting lesson or 30.

It's a requirement for all parents involved in a custody war in Berks County, Pa., although the twosome will not be required to take the class together.

Parents are often encouraged to take it separately ... for obvious reasons. 

They have until June 8 to complete the class, which will focus on, among other things, the dangers of exposing their children to loyalty conflicts... like when one parent sues the other for no reason, or talks smack about the other's financial ruin.

Maybe Jon can get a nice Ed Hardy-themed Trapper Keeper.

Who should have custody of the kids?

Amy Winehouse fell over while navigating the treacherous corridors of her home Saturday, and as of yesterday remained in a private London clinic.

These things happen when you're Amy Winehouse ... or Lindsay Lohan.

"It was just a domestic accident and not serious," her spokesman, Chris Goodman, reassures us. "She bruised her ribs and had a cut above an eye."

Not clear at this time? Whether Blake Fielder-Civil or her other trusted associates Johnny, Jack or Jim were present when the latest spill occurred.

Also unclear? Which of the above figures is a poorer influence.

Amy Wino Pic

As for why such minor injuries would warrant an extended stay with the doctors, we honestly have no idea, but it's Amy Winehouse. Anything goes.

"I don't know if she's still there," her rep, who always works OT, said. "If she is, it's not because something has happened. It's because it's nice."

Because it's nice? Huh? Did this guy raid her stash of crack rocks?

The UK's Sun (we know) poses the theory that the latest tumble taken by the singer caused some bruising to her newly-purchased breast implants.

Sorry for posting this so close to lunchtime on the East Coast.

Former NFL star Tiki Barber is being sued for divorce by wife Ginny Barber. At the center of the divorce drama? His affair with Traci Lynn Johnson.

After running around town with his young mistress while his pregnant wife spent a week in the hospital, one would have to say Tiki deserves it.

The ex-New York Giants star was slapped with divorce papers over his shameless gallivanting with Traci Lynn Johnson, a 23-year-old NBC intern.

"He couldn't be more heartless," said a friend of his eight-months-pregnant wife, Ginny, whose Manhattan divorce suit cites Barber's "adultery."

"[Ginny] is very heavily pregnant and was last week ordered into the hospital on bed rest," the friend said. "Meanwhile, Tiki has been spotted all over town with his new girlfriend while she was in the hospital."

"He was at the NFL draft and out dining with Traci."

With the mother of his two children on bed rest while pregnant with their third and fourth, Tiki Barber has been parading around with Traci Lynn Johnson. Class act.

Moreover, Tiki is reportedly shacking up with Johnson in a Midtown love nest.

Ducking out of that apartment and into his car, Tiki refused to answer questions and only flashed a grin when asked whether he had spoken with his wife.

On top of the cheating, Ginny Barber is also outraged that Tiki has been low-balling her in out-of-court negotiations over financial support, a friend said.

The family friend said: "It's been an emotional time for her, and she is, of course, worried about the health of her unborn twins. It's a lot to deal with."

Sources say his and Traci's torrid romance was a two-year-long affair beginning long before Ginny, a former fashion publicist, got pregnant with twins last summer.

A source told The N.Y. Post that the Today show has booted Tiki as a correspondent amid fallout from the scandal. NBC and Tiki refused comment.

It's likely to be the highest-grossing movie of 2010, and the hype for Iron Man 2 has just begun.

Last night in Hollywood, a contingent of stars posed on the red carpet at the world premiere of this blockbuster. Among those pictured at the event? Scarlett Johansson.

She looks great, but nothing compares to her appearance in the sequel, as Black Widow. See what we mean NOW.

Tito Ortiz has denied assaulting Jenna Jameson, claiming she relapsed on Oxycontin and lost her balance, rather than being thrown into the tub by him.

Jenna claims Tito got very violent - throwing and injuring her - and that he's falsely accusing her of Oxycontin addiction because he's "very desperate."

Just JJ

Clearly, somebody's story doesn't add up.

Whether or not officials determine there was an assault on Jenna Jameson remains to be seen, but the porn star's version of events is quite disturbing.

Jenna claims during an argument Monday morning she "said something very hurtful to his ego." She alleges that Tito Ortiz then grabbed her and, "threw me into the bathtub and tore two ligaments in my shoulder."

A 911 call was placed around 9:45 a.m.

Tito's attorney, Chip Matthews, strongly denies that, saying ... "He did not put his hands on her, he did not hit her, he did not do anything to her."

Matthews claims Tito found pills in Jenna's pants pocket, and that when Tito confronted her she had an "emotional meltdown." Jenna denies this.

Tearful Tito said he hopes "Jenna will be okay" and "my parents have gone through addiction and I'm not going to let my family go through that."

The attorney stated Monday that Jenna has been battling addiction to the painkiller for more than a year now, and Tito has been protecting her.

He claims Jenna relapsed and Tito confronted her about the drugs he claims he found. He suggested Jenna was high and just lost her balance.

Jenna says Tito's addiction allegation of her addiction to Oxycontin is, "completely false" and "the last nail in the coffin" for their relationship.

Jameson added that "he's trying to save his career" and hit the road for Vegas with two friends. Jenna's dad is taking care of their twin sons.

Whose story do you believe?

Cheating husband Jesse James is reportedly out of rehab for "unspecified issues" but is no longer wearing his wedding band, according to new reports.

After a month in Arizona, the unfaithful biker returned to his shop in Los Angeles, but not to Sandra Bullock, who is also not wearing her wedding ring.

Is this yet another sign that it's all over for the couple?

Nothing has been made official yet regarding their separation being made permanent, but reports suggest Sandra has a master divorce plan in place.

We suggest she kick-start that plan into high gear ASAP. Now that he's out of rehab, he should be back on the prowl for tattooed tail any second.

Not a lot is going right for Jesse these days.

As if his rampant cheating wasn't bad enough, the dude's dad says he isn't shocked by the infamous Jesse James Nazi photo, because he claims Jesse had a deep fascination with Hitler's evil war machine dating back to childhood.

Jesse's father, Larry James, is speaking out about his estranged son's youth - including the time he, like, introduced Jesse James to a real-life Nazi.

Larry claims he gave Jesse information about the Neo-Nazi movement "as a joke" - but soon noticed that Jesse, "liked their war machine, he liked their uniforms, he liked their guns, he liked everything about them."

He liked Michelle McGee, noted Nazi fan, later in life, too!

Larry says he doesn't know if Jesse is still into "the Nazi thing," as he's not on speaking terms with his son. In fact, he never even met Sandra Bullock.

Probably won't ever get that chance, either.

It had been too long since we'd heard from Randy Quaid and his insane wife Evi - though if they keep these antics up, we may never hear from them again.

The Quaids pressed their luck with a Santa Barbara, Calif., court, and when you fight the law, the law usually wins. Especially if you're wanted as fugitives.

The eccentric pair was thrown in the slammer Monday by Superior Court Judge Frank Ochoa for missing not one, but several hearings in their felony case.

"They came to court this morning hoping that Judge Ochoa would forgive them for not showing up a few weeks ago, but the judge decided they showed disrespect by prior failures to appear," Santa Barbara D.A. Arnie Tolks said.

  • Evi Quaid Mugshot

Randy and Evi Quaid posted bail of $100,000 each and left after three hours.

The D.A. also said that Randy flashing his Golden Globe from the 1988 miniseries LBJ: The Early Years during his last court date did not go over well:

"They both apologized to the court, but the judge didn't take it lightly."

The pair originally were arrested in Marfa, Texas, in September after allegedly skipping out on a $10,000 bill at the exclusive San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara.

Although they have since paid their outstanding bill, prosecutors say a crime was still committed ... and they've been pretty difficult to pin down in the process.

In fact, Randy and Evi Quaid were facing extradition for a time ... this over an unpaid bill. She has also been involved in numerous unrelated run-ins with cops.

Real normal.

Carrie Underwood wins all the Grammys.

Adam Lambert gets lots of attention.

And Crystal Bowersox is often in the news these days, as she leads the season nine pack of finalists.

But American Idol fans should keep an eye on Allison Iraheta. This young rocker is a singer on the rise, quietly selling a decent number of albums and booking a gig as the opening act for Lambert this summer on his wildly anticipated tour.

Incredibly, Allison is only 18, turning that important age today. We'd like to take a moment and wish her the best of luck, while encouraging readers to chime in and do the same. We bet this isn't the last photo montage we post in Iraheta's honor.

She has a long career ahead of her...

Lindsay and Ali Lohan may go to court to keep their father, Michael, away.

"We will be getting restraining orders... It will happen imminently," their mother Dina tells Us Weekly. "My children are absolutely petrified of him."

As you probably know, Michael brought the L.A. County Sheriff's Department to Lindsay's L.A. home Thursday to attempt to remove Ali Lohan, 16.

Dina: "He says, 'I'm worried about Ali!' Then pay child support!" Burn.

Clearly delusional or just plastered, Dina went on to defend Lindsay as a good role model for her little sister, and says, "Everything is fine with Ali."

Calling Michael "disgusting," she adds: "All my kids... he's never been there. He's been in and out of jail for 10 years. This guy has to be stopped."

Not a dysfunctional trio at all ...

She says that Lindsay and Ali temporarily ditched Lindsay's Los Angeles apartment after Michael's intervention because the girls are "so scared of him."

On the flip side, Michael met with his lawyer yesterday and plans to ask a sentencing judge to force Lindsay into rehab or award him a conservatorship.

Michael said, in reference to Britney Spears' conservatorship: "Jamie Spears was dealing with a wife that was on his side, not enabling. I'm dealing with an ex wife that wants nothing to do with helping Lindsay get better."

Mike also asserted that Lindsay is on "Adderall... bipolar medication, anti-depressant medication ... it is toxic. When I left [rehab facility] Cirque Lodge [in October 2007], she departed with a bucket of medication. I was disgusted."

Lindsay has denied using drugs.

In addition to calling her an enabler, Michael accuses Dina of "bleeding Lindsay Lohan dry" and only trying to "save" Lindsay to leech off her bank account.

Everyone with the last name Lohan will be investigated before long.

On this one, Dina is missing the boat ... because Lindsay is broke. Dina isn't acknowledging it, but multiple sources involved in her finances say it's so.

Michael says it's ironic, since Dina is guilty of "bilking Lindsay with her 20 percent commissions," and is threatening to release "over 100 tapes" of her.

For now, M-Lo is getting the hell out of L.A., but says he plans upon returning to NYC he may report Dina to Child Protective Services. Stay tuned ...

Whose side are you on?
