‘Idol’ Winner Cooks Up New Album: Fresh off his “Idol” coronation, David Cook sat down with Us Weekly to talk about his upcoming albums.

Bid On LaBeouf’s Briefs: Want a piece of one of summer’s hottest stars? Head over to eBay to bid on Shi LaBeouf’s costume from the film “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,” which includes “a pair of grey sweatpants, a pair of white briefs and ankle socks.” The items come with " a letter of authenticity from First Look Media.” BEWARE: the seller writes, “Please note: Costume is ‘as is’ which includes makeup stains, dirt: etc!” At press time the current bid was $400-- that’s one serious Shia fan.
Other 90210 News: Besides the new Peach Pit gang, Beverly Hills should expect yet another familiar face, when Axel Foley returns to the coveted zip code in 2010. Eddie Murphy has signed on for a fourth installment of the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise and director Brett Ranter is in talks to direct, Variety reports. No word if the cool synthesizer music will be coming back too!
Sweating Gwyneth: How do you get a body like Gwyneth Paltrow? Work out three hours a day, according to celebrity chef Mario Batali. “I think she works out three hours a day - which is one of the keys to success. [She] loves to eat … and, you know, she never puts on a pound!,” the super chef told Us Weekly at the opening of the Uncle Ben’s Kids Café in Carson, California on Wednesday. Yet another reason we love (and hate) her!
Mini ‘Potter’ Prequel: Good news “Harry Potter” fanatics! J.K. Rowling has written a prequel to Harry Potter, People reports. Bad news, it’s only 800 words, and there is only one hand-written copy, and it will be auctioned off for charity. No word if the boy wizard even shows up in the super short story, but we’re guessing it will take all the gold from Gringotts to buy it.
