Simon Cowell to Welcome Baby in NYC

Lauren SilvermanSimon Cowell's girlfriend is due to give birth to their son in New York City on February 28.

The X Factor boss and Lauren Silverman have reportedly booked a delivery room in one of the most exclusive hospitals on the east coast of the U.S., so her mother, Carole Sandland, who lives in Florida, can be on standby and fly up to help her care for her first child with the British star. A source told the MailOnline website that Lauren's mother will help her adjust to the newborn, as Simon, 54, will need to continue to travel to Los Angles and London regularly for work.

The decision to have their baby in NYC isn't surprising since Lauren's eight-year-old son, Adam, whom she shares custody of with her ex-husband, Andrew Silverman, who she divorced in August, attends school in the city.

Katy PerryKaty Perry was denied permission to perform on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

The 28-year-old singer is closing the MTV Video Music Awards tonight and was forced to come up with a new plan for her debut performance of her new single "Roar" after city officials refused to approve a permit to allow her to take over the iconic landmark.

"She was supposed to perform on top of the Brooklyn Bridge but the city wouldn't give her the permit," a source said. Katy, whose new single sold 557,000 digital downloads in its first week of release, has now agreed to sing underneath the bridge instead.

Other performers at tonight's ceremony will include Lady Gaga, who will open the show, Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, as well as Justin Timberlake, who will perform his new track "Take Back The Night" as well as a medley of *NSYNC hits with his old bandmates.

Hilaria Thomas and Alec BaldwinHilaria Baldwin will reportedly give birth today.

The 29-year-old yoga instructor checked into New York's Mount Sinai hospital where she is expected to have her first child with 55-old husband Alec Baldwin at any time. "The baby hasn't arrived yet, but it could be any moment," a source told Page Six.

Hilaria previously revealed plans for a natural childbirth, although she isn't adverse to having an epidural if the pain gets too bad: "Right now, I want to do it naturally. That's not to say there's something wrong with the epidural, but that's the way I was raised - I'm a pretty natural person. But if it does get to the point where I am screaming for the epidural, I have no problems with that. We'll see where it goes."

The couple have also been reading the pregnancy self-help book What To Expect When You're Expecting, so they know that everything is progressing normally. "We read parts of What to Expect When You're Expecting together every day. He'll point things out and ask 'How are you feeling? Are you having that?'" Hilaria explained.

Wi-Fi and cell service now available in 36 NYC subway stations

MTA NYC Subway wifi cellular

New York City subway passengers now have access to Wi-Fi, voice, and data services in 36 subway stations. The Metropolitan Transit Authority has outfitted several major stations with the service, including Times Square, Columbus Circle, Rockefeller Center, and a bunch of stops on the West Side starting at 18th street, all the way up to 96th street. Wi-Fi is sponsored by Boingo, while cell service is limited to AT&T and T-Mobile at the moment, with Sprint and Verizon on the way soon.

Up next, Wi-Fi and cell service will come to Queens and the midtown area by 2014, followed by the Bronx and East Side Manhattan following. Here's hoping that it all holds up and doesn't crack under the pressure of the daily New York City commuters similar to the problems with the BART Wi-FI service in San Francisco.

Samsung Galaxy S IV invite

Looks like the rumors of a Samsung Galaxy S IV March 14th announcement have come to fruition. Samsung has released an image inviting press to an event in New York City on March 14th that features the text "Ready 4 The Show: Come and Meet the Next Galaxy" which is pretty much a dead giveaway. However, if you're still suspicious, how about this quote from JK Shin, Samsung's mobile division chief:

"We introduced the Galaxy S III in London last year, and this time we changed the venue (to New York)... as we were bombarded with requests from U.S. mobile carriers to unveil the Galaxy S IV in the country."

We've also got the tweet from Samsung Mobile's Twitter account that backs all of this up.

"She walked out of the room completely naked. She didn't seem to care that everyone saw her naked. She seemed totally out of it.

Amanda - who claims to have retired from acting - has displayed erratic behavior in recent months, and has been dropped by her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer after they found they had been unable to get in touch with her for four weeks.
