Mariah Carey is Expecting
Mariah Carey is reportedly pregnant. The 40-year-old singer and her husband of two years Nick Cannon are said to be thrilled at the prospect of becoming parents for the first time. Speculation that the singer was with child increased after the singer dropped out of Tyler Perry’s new film For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. Carey’s people released a statement saying, "I’m not at liberty to discuss Mariah’s personal life at this time." A source close to the couple says they "want to keep the pregnancy quiet as long as they can." [Radar Online]
Cameron Diaz’s Fountain of Youth
At 37, Cameron Diaz is in excellent shape. The actress is still banging hot and as in demand as actresses 10 years her junior. How does she keep her youthful look and sex appeal? Well according to an interview in British Vogue her fountain of youth is a healthy sex life. The actress tells the mag, “The fountain of youth? Let's see - I guess it's exercise, healthy diet, lots of water, lots of laughter, lots of sex - yes, sex, we need that as human beings. It's healthy, it's natural.” Diaz also reveals that she has never had any plastic surgery, but would consider it in the future. She tells the magazine she “never says never to anything.” [Vogue]

John Mayer has canceled the rest of his European tour dates and is returning home to recover from an intestinal illness. Mayer will be missing gigs in Amsterdam, Madrid, and Manchester. Mayer apparently contracted an intestinal illness after the first night of two planned Copenhagen concerts. He complained of dizziness, nausea, and dehydration which made him unable to perform. Mayer is returning home to recover under a doctor's supervision. [Digital Spy]
Tom Brady Becoming the Least Popular Kid at Training Camp
Recent reports out of New England are claiming that golden boy Tom Brady is drawing criticism from his teammates/haters for his offseason activities. Brady, coming off the single worst playoff performance of his career, spent the past few months building a mansion in Hollywood (which Google Maps indicates is not actually a suburb of Boston) and hanging out with his supermodel wife. Clearly this frustrates people without Hollywood mansions and supermodel wives. [Yahoo!]
Google Chrome PC Operating System Coming This Fall
Speaking at the Computex show in Taiwan, Google's Chrome head Sundar Pichai confirmed that Chrome OS is on track for a "late fall" launch. Designed as an alternative for Microsoft Windows, Chrome will first be fitted to work with laptops, and fleshed out for other types of devices later on. "We will be selective on how we come to market because we want to deliver a great user experience," said Pichai. "We're thinking on both the hardware and software levels." [Reuters]
Hulu Coming to Xbox 360?
According to "a very reliable source," gadget site Gear Live is reporting that Microsoft is set to unveil a nice little surprise during its E3 press conference: the addition of TV streaming service Hulu to Xbox Live. Requiring a separate subscription fee - just like Netflix - Hulu would let Xbox 360 users watch (most of) their favorite TV shows whenever they want. Only, instead of watching it on a monitor, they could kick back and watch it on their actual TV sets. And instead of doing it for free, they'd be paying money to do so. Yay? [Gear Live]
