Have A Very Merry Birthday Ringo Star

Ringo Starr is celebrating his 71st birthday today (July 7). To mark the occasion, last year the former Beatle spoke with ABC's Diane Saywer for his 70th bday over Skype about his memories as a young pop star adored by millions of fans, not unlike the Lady Gaga's and Justin Bieber's of today.

"It's a big one," Starr said of turning 70. "When you're 20, 30, 40, you can't believe it's ever going to get up here." That said, Starr isn't looking to turn back time. "I don't think I'd want to be in my 20s anymore," he adds. "It's too mad. You're just starting to find yourself, and in my case, at 22, I ended up in the biggest band in the world. That was a great time for me, but it was still pretty crazy."

When Sawyer asked Starr whether he'd trade places with Bieber, he said, "Well, that would be easy, you know, because he's got the Beatle haircut," then revealed which artist he'd prefer to be for a day. "I'd rather be Lady Gaga, because I like to dress up."

Katie Holmes Is A Free B****And I'm Sure She Feels So Good!

After Katie Holmes successfully and rightfully so escaped the clutches of "Tom Cruise and the Scientologists," Holmes spills a few deets indicating her feelings towards her soon to be ex husband, Tommy Tom-Tom. In the pages of Elle magazine’s August issue, Katie strut a tank top from Tom Ford, stretch wool trousers from Holmes & Yang, suspenders from Holmes & Yang, stretch mesh bra from Maison Close, along with her own bracelet and ring.

On Tom Cruise... “He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years, I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.”

 On starting fresh in her 30s...“I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out…I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.”

 On being her own person... “Things are not handed to anyone. If anything, you work a little bit harder when you’re in such visible circumstances.”

Paul McCartney And His Droplet-Shaped Vegetable

Paul McCartney arrived at the airport in Athens, Greece strutting a Persian/Indian inspired paisley printed tunic also known as the "droplet-shaped vegetable" or otherwise synonymous by American traditionalists as the "Persian pickles." Parred with a white pair of trousers during a visitation with his lil' known band mates called, The Beatles. Perhaps you've heard of 'em kiddas?

Georgia May Jagger’s Material Girl Campaign (Plus Go Behind the Scenes)

Madonna has released her latest Material Girl Campaign and new face Georgia May Jagger is the perfect rock star off spring for the juniors clothing line.
The Jaggers are having a big week–Jade Jagger tied the knot this past weekend and today her half sister Georgia‘s latest ad campaign dropped. We’re noticing a common thread among the past few campaign stars for Material Girl, Madonna and daughter Lourdes Leon’s juniors clothing line for Macy’s: they’re all daughters of famous musicians–something Lourdes can probably relate to. Jagger, offspring of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, follows Kelly Osbourne as the line’s newest face and now we have the full campaign. The toothy model traded in her Hudson jeans for biker jackets and grungy dresses in the print ads, the setting for which–backstage at a concert–brought Jagger back to her own childhood as a rocker’s daughter. She said in a release, “I spent a lot of my childhood backstage hanging out around amps. That was where we chilled when we were younger. So this photo shoot brought back a lot of memories.” Could you imagine if your childhood memories involved hanging out around amps backstage at Rolling Stones concerts? The setting also made Madonna’s life a lot easier, as it was shot backstage during a rehearsal for her MDNA tour. A little cross-promotion perhaps? See below for a making of video, plus the rest of the campaign images and some behind the scenes shots.
