Did you hear?
:: Rihanna is throwing a bachelorette party for Katy Perry before she gets married to Russell Brand. Erotic bakeries are about to get a lot of business. (We’re not talking about the bachelorette party, though. We mean Russell Brand probably only consumes x-rated pastries.) [Just Jared]
:: Christina Aguilera will sit down with Oprah on an episode filmed at Radio City Music Hall on May 7 and perform a track off her new album Bionic. Is this album really and truly happening? We’ve been anticipating it for so long, a new Christina record seemed but a pipe dream. [Lifeline Live]
:: MTV shares several filmed interviews with Green Day about their American Idiot musical and how Billie Joe Armstrong has managed not to age in twenty years. (Okay, they didn’t inquire about that, but we really want to know.) [MTV Buzzworthy]
After the jump: before there was Justin Bieber, there was Jesse McCartney.

VIDEO REWIND OF THE DAY: It’s Jesse McCartney’s 23rd birthday today. Ah, it seems like just yesterday Jesse was starring in Summerland on the WB and releasing his debut album Beautiful Soul at the tender age of 17. Now with three albums under his belt and a fourth one to be released this year, Jesse has evolved into a Grammy-nominated songwriter (he co-wrote Leona Lewis’ mega-hit “Bleeding Love”) and a coveted voiceover actor (he’s lent his voice to Horton Hears a Who to various Tinker Bell movies to the mindnumbingly unavoidable Alvin and the Chipmunks).
Let’s take a look back at Jesse’s first music video, 2004′s “Beautiful Soul,” directed by Marc Webb (which is surprising, given that there isn’t a random dance number in the clip). Ah, how time flies when you’re a teenage heartthrob. Let’s see if Bieber can cement his place in the music industry by the time he turns 23.
