Katie Holmes reveals Suri's 5th birthday plans

Katie Holmes has been busy planning her daughter Suri’s upcoming 5th birthday, and it doesn't look like she'll be making a return to the location of the “penis gummies” debacle.

Instead, Holmes is aiming for a low-key bash, featuring confections that don’t reflect human anatomy and a little pool-side tea.

Little Suri “wants a piñata and (for) her girlfriends to come over,” Holmes recently revealed to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. There will be “swimming, and we’re going to make a cake together."

Michael Bublé gets hitched in Buenos Aires

Michael Bublé has plenty to sing about.

The Canadian crooner wed Argentine model Luisana Lopilato outside Buenos Aires on Saturday, his publicist told CNN.

At the reception, Bublé sang “Haven’t Met You Yet” - the tune he wrote for his bride who appeared in the music video with him -  to Lopilato and the 300 guests in attendance. However, he put the mic down when it came time for the couples' first dance to "Everybody Loves Somebody” by Dean Martin. Perhaps an unsurprising choice, as Bublé has covered the "Rat Pack" member's tunes in the past.

Death Cab shooting first ever live, one-take video

Tonight, at 7 p.m. EST,  Death Cab for Cutie will do something no band has ever attempted.  They'll shoot a scripted music video in one-take while it's being simulcast on the web.

Unlike the one-take videos by 'OK Go,' that can be re-done several times to get it right, Death Cab only has one shot, raising the stakes to new heights.

CNN caught up with two members of the band as they were rehearsing for the big performance.

The music video is for Death Cab's new single "You are a Tourist," off their upcoming album "Codes and Keys." The new album will be available in stores on May 31.

'Flight of the Concords' star joins 'The Hobitt'

There's a new elf in "Hobitt" land.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Flight of the Concords" star Bret McKenzie has joined the cast of the eagerly awaited Peter Jackson directed film "The Hobbit."

The adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic recently began production in McKenzie's native New Zealand and follows the character Bilbo Baggins' quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Fans of the Emmy-nominated  "Flight of the Concords" already know that McKenzie and his co-star Jemaine Clement  have a special affection for Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" series.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Hilton vs. Kardashian

Oh snap! Paris Hilton’s mom reportedly said Kim Kardashian should thank Paris for her success.

I think Kim and Paris are both tremendous celebrities. People know their names all over the world. They have both built multi-million dollar media empires and major brands.

CNN received the following statement from Kathy Hilton’s rep, on her behalf: "We've known Kim since she and Paris were young girls playing together. We are proud of all that Paris has achieved, and we're pleased that Kim has also become very successful."

Paris definitely paved the way for Kim in the world of reality TV. And while Kim currently seems to be everywhere,  I wouldn’t say one is a bigger star than the other.
