Sweet! Gwen Stefani's new album will drop on December 4th. She's not wasting any time! Maybe her new son has given her tons of inspiration. She has teamed up with Pharrell Williams again, as well as Akon, Swizz Beatz and Tony Kanal of No Doubt.
She told MTV News: "There's a lot of songs that were left over from the last album, and there's some new songs I did with Pharrell. There's a lot of Pharrell on this record."
Get ready to go bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

Even though they hit a rough patch last week (reportedly due to rumors that Tony cheated on Eva), the two seem happily reunited in Paris, where the San Antonio Spurs basketball star decamped for a series of exhibition games. Eva is also recovering from bruised ribs after falling down the stairs of her trailer on the set of Desperate Housewives.
But nothing was going to stop her from getting to Paris and getting that publicity shot.
Everybody knows that Ted Casablanca's frequently mention blind vice, Morgan Mayhem is actually our little Lindsay Lohan. Here's the latest scoop on her:
"Gal-friend, those unpredictable ways have gotten you into trouble in myriad areas of your life, but now it seems your social-butterfly status is in serious jeopardy, too. Hid-eee-us, I know. See, there's this über-exclusive boîte of fabulousness here in Tinseltown that certain celebs consider their personal playground. The door at said joint is tighter than Nicole Kidman's forehead and has turned away highly celebrated, professional partiers without batting a stoic eye.But not Morg, of course. She's nevah had a problem getting into exclusive places. Also, there's always packs of paps following Morg who are bound to snap her leaving such swanky locales. So, owners are usually happy to have M2 hangin' out.But the owner of the former spot ain't so thrilled anymore.
First off, he's already received wrist slaps and warnings from police for allowing other questionable antics to go down, as it were, at his establishment (which really should look a bit more fab considering the loot this guy poured into it). And secondly, Morg's not just hittin' the snowy slopes anymore. She's got a newer, dirtier drug of choice. And it's becoming painfully obvious.
"She's behaving like a monster," says one of my super-inside (and relatively sober) sources. Not only does M.M. pick fights with other patrons, sashay out of stalls with her sniffer covered in powder and even pass out in them, now she's takin' to doin' the girl-on-girl thang not so discreetly in these dark hangs! Love the last sin, which, natch, ain't, but I'll just go along with my republican detractors for a sec and pretend like is it, 'kay? Oh, girl, for gawd's sake, get it together! Your career, sex appeal and hetero status (big whoop!) are going down the toilet as we type."
Oh, LiLo, clean it up already! You're killing me!
Happy Birthday to Taygizzle, who is the oldest 19 yr. old I know. Thanks for never growing up and always making it a good time. Dance on, iPod dancer and here's to waking up with pepperoni stuck to your face and Gloria at your side. And happy first anniversary to SiaMac and Paul. Even if they are an old married couple, they still throw Club Millenium parties, Paul can still do the typewriter, and can't nobody beat Sia in a beer bong contest. Cheers to you!
DON misses you all and will raise glass after glass to you this weekend!
Keisha Castle-Hughes, 16, and her boyfriend, Bradley Hull, 19, are expecting their first child this spring. The two have been dating for three years. The Australian actress who lives in New Zealand first made waves playing Paikea in 2002's Whale Rider, for which, at the age of 13, she received the youngest Best Actress Oscar nomination in history. Like her character, she is part Maori.
Since Whale Rider, she has taken few roles, though she did play the Queen of Naboo in 2005's Star Wars: Episode III and will appear as Mary in the upcoming movie The Nativity Story.
Damn, she's young to be having a kid. Best of luck!

My spies in SF tell me that George Clooney will soon begin filming Leatherheads about the NFL in the 1920's. The female lead is played by noneother than Renee Zellweger. That explains why the two have been photographed together recently. Phew! Not a couple.
Thanks for the tip!
Mothface Cruz is teaming up for the third time with Spanish director Pedro Almodovar. In a surprising casting move, she will NOT be playing a moth. Instead, she will play Raimunda, who lives in Spain with her teenage daughter and is married to an unemployed laborer. But things get complicated when Raimunda’s mother, who died in a fire, begins to appear and can be seen by Raimunda’s hairdresser sister Sole.
Sounds awful, but very artsy and that's what moths like!
I recently overheard a screenwriter in a meeting discussing the sequel to The Thomas Crowne Affair. He said that Pierce Brosnan is signed on to play Thomas Crowne again, but didn't mention Renee. He also kept saying how Pierce is the coolest guy on earth, going to pubs for drinks with all the cast and crew all the time and really chill.
Remember the store B.Unique? You put paint and sparkles on your shirt and then they spun it around so it would have a cool splattered effect? Mischa remembers it like it was yesterday...because it was.
Can you imagine leafing through her closet? It'd be like the ultimate place to go for college theme parties.
It's tricky, but there is a definite right answer here. Haylie Duff, Clay Aiken, and Hilary Duff celebrate another performance of Hairspray for Haylie. Clay is in town promoting his new cd which is rocking the charts thanks to elementary school girls, mid-western housewives, and the gay community. You take what you can get, Clay!
NicRic and Brody Jenner broke up yesterday after two months of constant togetherness. Nicole's rep confirms that they are not dating, but remain friends. On her MySpace page, Nicole wrote, "I know there are rumors regarding my 'breakup' with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he's a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity."
Ouch! That sounds like a jilted chick if you ask me. Monday Brody was photographed out dancing with LC, the "rival" of Brody's ex, Kristin Cavalleri. Several other sources stated that Brody's desire to be in the limelight was becoming an issue, which I find hilarious. He doesn't seem like much of a camera whore, whereas I can't say the same for Nicole.
Please prepare yourself for this; it reeks of bad taste and insincerity:
Anna Nicole Smith, 38, and her lawyer Howard K. Stern, 37, exchanged "commitment vows" on Sept. 28 off the coast of the Bahamas' Paradise Island. This happened just days after the birth of Anna's daughter Dannielynn Hope and after the death of her son Daniel.
During the simple ceremony, Smith and Stern exchanged vows and temporary rings before a Baptist minister and some of the couple's close friends. The ceremony is not legally binding (and no marriage certificate was issued.
After the ceremony, the couple jumped into the ocean and toasted with champagne and apple cider. Just to make sure Anna was happy, there was a delivery of KFC made to the bride, I kid you not.
Stern, who revealed in the Sept. 26 Larry King interview that he (not Smith's ex, photographer Larry Birkhead, who has since filed a paternity suit) is the father of Smith's daughter.

Who knows for sure, but Us seems convinced that this time it's really over, waiting several weeks after the supposed break-up to drop this story:
"After weeks of distance both emotional and real, the relationship ax fell the week of September 9 for Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston. A source close to Vaughn tells Us that the split happened just before the actor left for London to begin work on his holiday comedy, Joe Claus. 'It's not common knowledge, but we're not together anymore,' Vaughn told the insider September 13, adding that they solidified the breakup in a long phone conversation. "We've split up." Confirms an Aniston pal: "They're 100 percent done." Soon afterward, Vaughn, 36, canceled plans for Aniston, 37, to visit him in London for a September 23 party, says the source. What went wrong? Sources tell Us that the relationship began to unravel almost immediately after Vaughn's June 27 proposal to Aniston."
Poor Jen, I hope this isn't true, but their relationship has always seemed a bit odd.
Ryan Phillippe was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone. When asked about the Golden Globes (how he jumped up and down, yelled and pumped his fists in the air when wife Reese Witherspoon won) back in January, he said, "At the Golden Globes I was plastered! Shirley MacLaine and I drank like crazy, just putting away bottles of wine and making fun of everyone."
He went on to say, "The ultimate 20-year plan is to be living in the Caribbean, writing, living off the land, eating from the ocean and probably smoking herb."
That Ryan sounds like fun.
Cindy Crawford, Rande Gerber, Pamela Anderson, and Kid Rock all attended the Rolling Stone party at the Stone Rose club (owned by Rande) at Hotel Sofitel. Isn't it sad that Kid and Pam look nicer here than on their wedding day(s)?
Also in attendance was Paris Hilton with Dave Navarro. I think Paris has attended a party every night this week...maybe she'll stay in tonight after last night's incident. Probably not.
Oh, you know this is going to be good! Paris Hilton, who has been seen making out all over the country with newly separated Travis Barker, had a run-in with Travis' trashy wife Shanna Moakler and it was the slutty blonde bitch fight of the year! Paris filed a police report saying that Shanna punched her in the jaw late last night at Hyde, while Shanna filed a police report saying Stavros Niarchos poured a drink on her head and shoved her down some stairs. Hyde has all the best drama lately!
The story goes that at approximately 1:10 a.m. Paris was approached by Shanna, who allegedly began screaming obscenities at her. Hilton says at that point Moakler struck her in the jaw with a closed fist as she continued to shout profanities. Moakler was restrained and several people helped Paris exit Hyde.
All this doesn't really surprise me, but does leave me wondering for the millionth time what is so hypnotic about Paris that she can get her ex-boyfriend to defend her against her current boyfriend's wife? And on House of Carters, did you see how psychotic Nick got when talking about Paris? She clearly ruined his life. All her exes seem totally obsessed with her and distraught over the end of their relationships. How and why?!?
Madonna arrived in Malawi as part of a humanitarian mission to help African AIDS orphans, with Andrina Mchiela, the country's secretary to the minister for gender and child welfare, claiming that Madonna and Guy Ritchie will adopt a child from the region during her stay.
Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz pulling out of their much-hyped big screen reunion, the dramedy A Little Game Without Consequence, due to "substantive creative differences," per the Hollywood Reporter. It's the third Carrey film to get axed in pre-production this year. At least he has Jenny.
Barbra Streisand, who promised six years ago never to sing live again, is kicking off a 20-date, 16-city tour tonight. Make it stop already!
The company that makes In-Sink-Erator garbage disposals has filed suit against NBC, claiming the Heroes pilot, which features a girl placing her hand down the sink, flipping on the product and removing her mangled digits--only to have them quickly return to normal--"irreparably tarnished" their product by implying it could cause significant injury and also violated their trademark. First of all, who doesn't know that sticking your hand down a disposal will harm you and secondly, that was totally sick to watch and I hope they don't do it again.
Kevin Costner taking two former business partners to court over a battle for sole ownership of a South Dakota restaurant-casino which houses costumes donned in each of the actor's films. WTF?
There's a new celebrity couple named Brad and Jen - Bradley Cooper, 31, (Wedding Crashers, Alias) and Jennifer Esposito, 34, (Crash, Related) are engaged. The two have kept their relationship on the DL, but were first spotted together in January.
This will be the first marriage for both. I think Bradley, besides obviously being hot, is a hilarious actor. Remember him as the gay choral coach in Wet, Hot American Summer? Awesome.
