Trying not to be outdone, sketchy chanteuse Miley Cyrus, cruelly felled by a bug, and then an allergic reaction to antibiotics, has announced makeup dates for the interrupted "Bangerz" tour.

Clooney roped in
They said it couldn't be done. And now it all but is. Monday, it was confirmed that George Clooney, most beautiful, confirmed, freest-as-the-breeze bachelor ever (OK, he was actually married once, to Talia Balsam, but he cleared that up in 1993), is to wed Amal Alamuddin, beautiful genius international human rights lawyer for the firm Doughty Street Chambers in the U.K. (They were the ones who spilled the official legumes.) So she's also a moral icon! Wow. Poor George didn't stand a chance. He's a grizzled, tottering 52; she's an overwhelmingly splendorous 36. No details yet on where, when - or how much that ring weighing down Amal's finger cost.
Paul Simon 72, and his goddesslike wife, SideShow favorite Edie Brickell, 48, are not feelin' too groovy after being charged with disorderly conduct up in New Canaan, Conn. Around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, police went to their home, where they found (they say) signs of physical violence and minor injuries (unclear to whom). Married since 1992, Simon and Brickell have three children. His two previous marriages were to Carrie Fisher and Peggy Harper. Paul and Edie walked into court hand-in-hand for arraignment Monday in Norwalk. The lawyer who represents them both, Allan Cramer, calls the incident "much less than nothing."
