:: Leona Lewis takes a break from riding the coattails of Avatar and instead rides a horse. [Just Jared]
:: Ludacris filled in for Regis Philbin on Live with Regis & Kelly and found how how low Kelly Ripa could go. (Answer: pretty low.) [Rap-Up]
:: The-Dream plans to retire once his upcoming album Love King drops. We believe this as much as we believe Jay-Z’s last three retirement announcements. [The Boombox]
:: Madonna’s first-ever clothing line will include a tween collection inspired by her daughter, Lourdes. (Plans include a “Material Girl” apparel collection and the “Truth Or Dare” underwear line). Here’s hoping she spends more than 4 minutes on the design. [Blackbook]

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: It’s Joel and Benji Madden’s 31st birthday today, so let’s celebrate the twins’ big day with Good Charlotte’s music video for “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous.” The single, released in 2002, was the band’s biggest hit here in the States, peaking at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. (The rockers built a much bigger fan base in Down Under—their 2007 song “Dance Floor Anthem (I Don’t Want To Be In Love)” reached #2 on the Australian charts).
It’s ironic the brothers recorded a song with the title “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous” since both of them would end up dating two of the most prominent figures to grace the pages of modern day gossip rags. Joel is the proud poppa of two children with fiance Nicole Richie, while Benji is probably still trying to wash off the remnants of his nine-month relationship with Paris Hilton.
(Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo from N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick as a saucy witness named Chadwick Merryweather Hardy III.)
Have a great day!
