Gwyneth Paltrow accidentally knocked over the computer husband Chris Martin uses to write songs in their London home, reportedly “rendering it difficult to turn on.” Fortunately (?) the data on the computer was not damaged and no information was lost.
At least she’s dropping computers and not babies like Britney Spears.
Pete Doherty has been detained in Barcelona after a syringe was found in the toilet of the EasyJet flight he and the rest of Babyshambles were on. The band is now restricted from flying EasyJet planes in the future. Great.
Sofia Coppola will be baby’s mama to Thomas Mars of French band Phoenix. They announced the pregnancy during the Cannes Film Festival last week where Sofia’s latest film, Marie Antoinette, premiered.
Wow, someone at Rough Trade finally had it up to here with Pete Doherty and now his band, Babyshambles, has been officially droped from the RT roster. Apparently Rough Trade can handle a lot of things, but squirting a MTV camera crew with blood from a syringe is not one of them.
In related news, Pete’s old flame Kate Moss is doing swimingly as the “sexy and stunning” spokesmodel for the Nikon S6.
Let that be a lesson to all of you: Snorting crack = good for modeling career, squirting blood = bad for music career.
Glad we got that squared away once and for all.

UPDATE: Er…Babyshambles hasn’t been “dropped” by Rough Trade…they just haven’t had time to renegotiate a contract. Oooookkaaayy…
Some of you may have been sitting home this fine Friday evening wonder, “Gee, what would happen if a unknown musician/ model/ professional ‘who’s that guy?’ and a flame-haired American starlet were caught kissing on the street”? Well you’re in luck, because Jamie Burke and Lindsay Lohan have totally made your night.
According to what I saw on the E!‘s Daily 10 and Egotastic, La Lohan was seen smooching Jamie, who just happens to be her gal pal Kate Moss’s ex.
And what relevance, if any, does this have on your life? None, unless you accidentally find yourself at a Carte Blanche show–of which Jamie is the lead singer–in NYC in June or July.
Oh Lindsay, it’s so good to see you picking up right where Wino left off.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Jack White’s wife Karen Elson gave birth to a baby girl named Scarlett Teresa yesterday in Tennessee. Neither spokespeople for Jack White or Karen Elson have confirmed the birth…yet. Thanks to Delia for the link.

Today, while responding to a post on her Web site’s message board, Amanda De Cadenet made the following statement:
sorry it took me SO long to respond…i’m busy being pregnant which seems to be quite time consuming!
Woah! I’m assuming it would be Mr. Nick Valensi’s love child. Congratulations to the expecting couple! That’s gonna be one rock ‘n’ roll baby. When they get older this baby and big sis Atlanta (Amanda’s child with Duran Duran’s John Taylor) can spend hours debating who has the cooler dad. Thanks to Tess and The Strokes BB for the link!

According to reports published in WWD today, The Strokes have gotten into a tiff over money with Wenner Media over their compensation fee for playing Rolling Stone’s 1,000 issue celebration next week. It is rumored that Wenner originally made a verbal agreement for an undisclosed sum to the rock ‘n’ rollers but have since scaled back the amount offered.
A conflicting report from another snitch disputed that claim, stating the band tried to pull a fast one on Wenner and inflated their booking fee, to which Wenner bargained them back down to the original asking price.
It’s also rumored that The Strokes weren’t even supposed to be the headlining act, rather an opener to a more estabilshed rock group like Tom Petty or Bruce Springsteen. Who’s taking the place of the Heartbreaker and The Boss? Uhâ€¦Paul Shaffer, of course.

Rachel kept sending me photos from People.com and AOL, and I kept writing stupid captions for them:
The Blonde Stick and Charlton Heston: “That baby is so wrinkly–and it’s face is all like, ‘Eh, don’t touch me bizzotch. Whatever’.”
Kanye West: “Um, he’s totally Rainbow Brite.”
Will Smith at the Wailing Wall: “Is the dude behind him w/ the shades his security detail? Haha. He’s wearing a Kangulke.”
Jessica Simpson: “Happy Kwanza, y’all.”
The Raconteurs: “Patrick looks like a grown-up Muldoon.”
