David Beckham arrived with his Galaxy team members in Washington DC Friday where he was greeted by lots of fans.
For a couple that hasn't officially confirmed their relationship, Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong sure do love their PDA. The duo seem to be making a habit of rewarding themselves after working out as they shared a passionate kiss outside of a gym in Santa Barbara on Wednesday. Both Kate and Lance have always kept their bodies fit so maybe this weekend they can meet up with mutual friend Matthew McConaughey to move their worldwide kissing to the beach.
Wanted: Overflowing With Blood, Bullets, Testosterone A few things Wanted is not: quiet or steadily shot. It's also not all that enjoyable. But then again, I'm surely not the target audience for this film. Watching the early trailers for the movie I was initially intrigued by the visuals — the way you can see every shard of glass as someone leaps out a window, for example.
Last night on Letterman, Mary-Kate Olsen admitted that she went to high school with douchier all-star Spencer Pratt. While Dave tried to get her to say more, MK mostly revealed was that he had a bad temper on the soccer field. Today of course Spencer had a response all ready, "I don't really get why she'd use my name to get press for her little indie film that no one's going to see...She should probably focus more on not getting dressed in the dark than on me." He went on to call her a "troll" and the "less cute twin." Clearly, this is a feud for the ages — so whose side are you on?
London's Hyde Park turned into a party scene this afternoon as Nelson Mandela kept on celebrating his ninetieth birthday with a star-studded concert. Will and Jada were up and at 'em after last night's Elton John party to get on stage, while Geri Halliwell and Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton, surveyed the scene. Amy Winehouse, who was looking unusually tan, managed to take the stage despite her recent health problems. A crowd of 46,664, a number chosen as that was Nelson's prison number during his 27-year incarceration in South Africa, turned out to mark the occasion. Between this big show and dinner with his friends on Wednesday evening, hopefully Mr. Mandela had a perfect and memorable birthday.

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden kept baby Harlow under wraps yesterday as they ran errands in LA. The first item on the agenda was a stop by the DCMA store to say hi to Benji, and then it was off to Whole Foods with the Maddens' mom Robin in tow. The new parents are all about family these days, but they're happy to reiterate that they have no plans to make it official with a wedding anytime soon. While we'd love to see Nicole in a wedding dress, it's obvious that they have a sense of humor about holding off and are just making Harlow the center of their world for now.
Matthew McConaughey was in good spirits leaving an office in LA yesterday wearing that man bag designed by his lady. While he's still got his shirtless surfer side on the weekends, the soon-to-be father is spending more and more time fully dressed and in work mode these days. Of course, that isn't to say he's all settled down — as evidenced by the newest details of his drunken night down in Nicaragua. Apparently Mr. McConaughey had to be carried home at the end of the night, at which point one of the helpful hands swiped his BlackBerry and $2000! The actor was reportedly too embarrassed to do anything about it when he figured out that he was missing the goods. Sounds like just the kind of night he's like to forget...as if he even remembers.
