Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj splashed out $70,000 on a toy sports car for Lil Wayne's birthday. The American Idol judge - who is signed to the rapper's Young Money label - bought him a Campagna T-Rex 14R, a toy two-seater motorcycle-car hybrid, that usually costs $50,000 and added some pricey extras, according to TMZ. She then had the gift delivered to Lil Wayne's birthday bash in Hollywood on Thursday, where he was celebrating turning 30.

Wayne and Nicki are close friends, and earlier this year he pulled her out of the Summer Jam Concert when radio DJ Peter Rosenberg slighted her track "Starships."

Salma Hayek and her daughter ValentinaSalma Hayek can be a pushy mother. The Savages actress used to think she was a "laid back" mom until she had a party for her daughter Valentina - who turned five today - and found she was pushing through crowds of children to make sure her little girl had a candy.

"I make an effort to be laid back and often I want to giver her space, and then I catch myself doing things. In Paris I had a birthday party with a pinata with kids, who were Mexican, they were boys and they were older. She was really concerned she wouldn't be able to take a candy when the pinata broke. I said, 'Don't worry.' When the pinata broke, she couldn't get in, I was pushing them, trying to get in. And then I caught myself and I thought, 'I've turned into one of those mothers!' I moved away. I think I'm a bit of both. I think we all are," she said.

Despite Valentina being the daughter of an Oscar-nominated actress and a billionaire father - French fashion mogul Francois Henri Pinault - Salma thinks her offspring wants to become a gymnast because of the London Olympics. "She's into the gymnastics because of the Olympics. It's amazing how she points her toes, like a little bird or something. She's doing it every day," she added.

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan had an "embarrassing" angry rant on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old actress reportedly had a public meltdown and was asked to leave Hollywood hotspot Bootsy Bellows when she refused to share the V.I.P. area with Clint Eastwood's daughter Francesca.

"Francesca was celebrating her birthday with around a dozen friends in a private area when Lindsay came over and started screaming that Francesca should leave. She was yelling, 'I'm a star, she's a nobody, get her out of here!' One poor guy came over and tried to calm [Lindsay] down and she acted aggressively. At that point the security told her to leave and it was totally embarrassing. She is acting like some bad 80s film star, and it is hard to watch because she needs help," one onlooker told Us Weekly.

The troubled starlet left the venue in a rage after her showdown with the E! reality star and almost caused a scene outside as she zoomed off in a friend's car. "Lindsay's friend was driving and they sped out and almost hit one of the valet guys," a party-goer said.

Prince PhilipBritain's Prince Philip was released from the hospital on Saturday.

The Duke of Edinburgh - who had been admitted with a bladder infection earlier this week - was allowed to leave the King Edward VII Hospital in central London in time for his 91st birthday yesterday.

Philip was in typically blunt form, telling reporters who asked him if he was feeling better: "I wouldn't be leaving here if I wasn't." However, he paid tribute to the staff who cared for him, shaking hands with them all as he left and thanking them for caring for him during his five day stay. Philip then climbed into the front passenger seat of a Land Rover Discovery vehicle before being driven away from the hospital, with a police escort.

"His Royal Highness left hospital today. He continues to improve and he will now continue his convalescence at home," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said. The spokesman added the duke would be spending his birthday "privately."

Philip was taken to hospital after spending hours on a ceremonial barge in rain and a cold wind as part of a flotilla of 1,000 vessels on the River Thames to mark Queen Elizabeth's landmark Diamond Jubilee. Royal aides said he was treated with antibiotics and made good progress during the week.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian bought new boyfriend Kanye West a rare $750,000 car for his birthday.

The rapper - who turned 35 yesterday - had the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 purchased for him in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.com. Kanye, however, has not been able to enjoy his luxurious gift yet as he is working in Ireland on the Watch the Throne tour with Jay-Z.

Apparently Kim made a video recording of the vehicle to show him and planned to screen the clip of it being delivered after flying out to join him in the country.

Kanye recently launched an expletive-filled tirade against a fan during his performance in Paris during the European tour. The "All Of The Lights" hitmaker was furious when an audience member shone a laser pen in his direction at the show in France, causing the US star to order the man to "chill the f**k out" or be thrown out of the venue.

Rock of AgesRussell Brand thinks Tom Cruise is a "joy to be around."

The Rock Of Ages star got close to Tom on set the set of their new movie. The 49-year-old actor even cooked Russell - who turns 37 on Monday - a special birthday dinner.

"Tom is lovely. He's like a big charismatic hurricane smashing through your life. It's lovely to get attention from him, it's lovely to hang out with him. He's a beautiful, genuine, kind man. You'd think if someone was the biggest movie star in the world, you wouldn't be so interested in other people. But he's very caring. He's serious but sweet, a joy to be around. Tom bought me a really nice birthday present, with all of my favorite things. He gave me a nice new yoga mat and cooked me nice food. He bought me all of my favorite foods. I thought, 'How does he know all of this stuff?' He was like Father Christmas."

Cameron DiazCameron Diaz found it "torture" to be 20 years old.

The 39-year-old actress - who turns 40 on August 30 - isn't bothered about getting older and she works out "everyday" to stay in shape, but the blonde beauty is glad that she will never have to be in her 20s again.

"I don't worry about age. I never have. I couldn't wait to get into my 30s when I was in my 20s. I don't want to go back to being 20, it was torture. When I'm not working I train everyday I can. I like weights. It's important for women to have strong muscles - that's what carries you."

Cameron - who plays pregnant Jules in her latest movie, What To Expect When You're Expecting - admits she disliked it when she recently got her hair chopped, but she has now grown to love her shorter locks: "I said, 'Yeah, I want to go shorter,' and she went a bit shorter than I'd anticipated! I was like, 'The back of my neck's exposed!' Then I went, 'I like this haircut. Look how cute it is!'"
