Terrific celebrity news of the day: Travis Barker has been released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Georgia.
The rocker had been recovering for nine days after suffering second and third degree burns following a plane crash that took the lives of four people.
His friend DJ AM, the only other passenger to survive, was released from the burn unit on Friday. Both were badly hurt but are expected to recover fully.
BACK IN BUSINESS: While it may take a year for him to fully heal, we expect Travis Barker to be rocking out (and maybe seeing Shanna Moakler nude) in no time.
This morning on The Today Show, Selena Gomez was interviewed by Al Roker.
The rotund, affable weatherman asked the young actress about the upcoming season of Wizards of Waverly Place. Here's what she had to say about it:
"This season, we wanted to come back and top ourselves from the first season. A lot of new crazy magic spells are happening. You also see a more real side because at the same time, we want to be relate-able. [My character] Alex goes through the struggle of first date jitters and fights with her best friend.”
Watch the video now:
Considering that Friday's debate between Barack Obama and John McCain was viewed by more people than the series finale of Friends, it's safe to say this year's presidential election is popular.
With that in mind Christina Aguilera and her son Max have an important message for all Americans: rock the vote.
With two wars waging abroad and an economy at home that threatens all jobs outside of steady industries such as pornography and celebrity gossip, Aguilera isn't choosing sides in the poster above; she's just asking citizens to educate themselves on various topics and cast a vote accordingly.
Or, at the very least, go watch Tina Fey doing an impersonation of Sarah Palin again. It never gets old.
Troubled singer Mindy McCready will voluntarily surrender to authorities on Tuesday to serve 60 days in a Tennessee jail for a probation violation.
McCready said in a statement Monday morning:
"I have been working very hard to put all this behind me as quickly as possible so I can get back to doing what I like to do most: sing, write songs, and entertain."
"I would like to thank my fans for their unwavering support as I continue to work on my recovery and to regain custody of my precious son, Zander."
Considering that she tried to kill herself in the last story we posted on her, it's good to hear she is at least taking a step towards getting it together.
Mindy's never in the news for anything good. The country star, 32, was arrested for violating probation for prescription drug fraud in June.
McCready entered rehab July 16 for undisclosed reasons and was previously jailed in 2007 after violating probation on a 2004 drug arrest.
She also made headlines after it was disclosed that steroid fiend and lying, cheating, egomaniacal baseball star Roger Clemens had an affair with her - when McCready was very underage. That was one we certainly didn't see coming.
While Hank Baskett and the Philadelphia Eagles were busy losing to the Chicago Bears last night, the wide receiver's girlfriend was also losing... her shirt!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel they are not.
But while Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish are far from beloved in Hollywood - that's what happens when you cheat on Reese Witherspoon, Ryan - they have at least one supporter.
"They're great," Rob Brown, Phillippe's friend and castmate in last spring's Stop-Loss, told People Magazine. "I was with them last night. They're good people."
Despite the fact that his cheating supposedly caused it, Phillippe has referred to his divorce from Witherspoon as "the darkest, saddest place I had ever been." But Brown added that his pal has moved on.
"He's alright," Brown said. "He's in good spirits and he seems happy. And I'm happy for him."
Celebrity news photographer Adnan Ghalib, the ex-boyfriend of Ms. Britney Spears, says he has a sex tape featuring himself and the pop princess.
And the British-born paparazzo, whom Britney was dating during her epic breakdown last winter, says he WILL sell the sex video for the right price.
Adnan Ghalib told Heat magazine (which apparently exists):
"There is such a tape, but I won’t discuss prices for hypothetical enquiries. Unless there is a locked-in deal, I will go no further.”
Adnan Ghalib is reportedly trying to sell his XXX-rated Britney Spears sex tape. A sex tape which he totally doesn't even own, but we'd likely consider watching if he did.
A source tells the UK's The Sun that the two-hour XXX-rated footage features Britney Spears naked, wearing just a pink wig, and was shot in Mexico.
Adnan and Britney snuck off to Mexico together in January, not long before she went bonkers and was hospitalized involuntarily for bipolar disorder.
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively continues to amaze.
The 21-year-old actress looks pretty sensational in a one-piece swimsuit in this photo shoot that recently popped up. We know that "one-piece" and "sensational" create an oxymoron, but take a look. Something about it** just does it for us:
** - It's the fact that she's drop dead gorgeous.
If you haven't seen Blake on her TV show, Gossip Girl, you really should check it out. Not only does it feature this beautiful young actress - sometimes in even more revealing clothing! - but the show can actually be pretty entertaining.

Most readers seem to think Audrina Patridge is hot.
Her swimwear choice here, though? A more difficult call.
The Hills star did show some skin at the Wet Republic pool at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday, but her suit looks a little whack to us.
Why go with a one-piece? And what is the deal with holes in the sides? A question we can't answer - much like why the hell she dates Justin-Bobby.
