According to a source on the scene, the “Mean Girls” starlet and her DJ mate enjoyed a dip in the warm waters and skimmed a few stones before laying down to work on their tans.

After relaxing on the lounge chairs for awhile, the oh-so-happy duo then opted to cool down with popsicles as they laughed amongst one another.

Meanwhile, as previously reported by Gossip Girls, Lindsay’s said to be making a last-minute change to the artwork on her new album (due out November 4th) as a loving gesture to her sweetie.

A source told press, “The artwork was finalized before Lindsay had gone public with the relationship, so she concealed the tribute. Now it will name Samantha directly.”

Janet Jackson Released From the Hospital

As previously reported by the Gossip Girls, Janet Jackson was rushed to the hospital last night after she fell ill during her sound check at a venue in Montreal, Canada.

And earlier today, Rebecca Burns, a spokesperson for the hospital, told press, “Yesterday evening she was checked into the Royal Victoria Hospital and left a couple of hours later.”

A source close to Jackson’s boyfriend Jermaine Dupri told press that Jane was most likely suffering from exhaustion. “A 42-year-old body can’t handle what a 22-year-old body can. I can tell you that she’s definitely tired. It was probably exhaustion. She is doing back-to-back, three-hour shows, and her body isn’t the same as it used to be.”

The source also commented that Dupri was out partying in NYC last night, hence Jackson’s condition couldn’t have been too dismal. “If [Janet’s condition] was more serious he would’ve rushed to her side.”

Obama Gives Shout-Out to Hip-Hop Community

Senator Barack Obama sat down in an exclusive interview with MTV personality Sway, after his first historical presidential debate with Republican John Mccain to express how he feels about the hip-hop community that has rallied around him.

Hip-hop indeed loves Obama. And everyone from Lil' Wayne to Young Jeezy, and Jay-Z to Kanye have saluted him in their lyrics, and he's inspired a slew of mixtapes, bootleg t-shirts, and on-stage shout-outs.

The presidential hopeful also admits to having songs from Jay-Z and Kanye West on his iPod, and famously brushed the dirt off his shoulder at an April campaign stop, referencing one of Jay's biggest hits.

When asked how he feels about the genre that has shown him so much support, Obama told MTV: "I enjoy it, but these days I don't have the time to listen to it all the time."

"I'm a little older than hip-hop culture," he added. "I was there at the beginning, but I was already getting older. What I've appreciated, watching this hip-hop generation, is to see how entrepreneurial they've been. In the past, musicians oftentimes were commodities. They were just shuffled around. Obviously, they did well, but they didn't have the vision to say, 'I'm going to build a business. I'm going to build my own studio. I'm going to create my own production operations.' I think they're a lot more sophisticated than in the past, and that is a wonderful thing."

Obama went on to tell MTV that he's still seeing growth in the genre and that he's optimistic about what's ahead for hip-hop.

"What I'm starting to see is them stretching out more and thinking about social responsibility and how they can impact the culture in a positive way," he said. "And I hope that continues."

As for LiLo’s new album (slated for a November 4th release), it sounds like she’s making a last-minute change to the artwork as a loving gesture to her sweetie.

A source told press, “The artwork was finalized before Lindsay had gone public with the relationship, so she concealed the tribute. Now it will name Samantha directly.”

Gwen Stefani Puts Family First

After a long day of shopping, Gwen and Gavin sent their son home and enjoyed a romantic dinner for two out at Woo Rae Oak Korean restaurant in Beverly Hills.

Paris Hilton Preps for “BFF” Premiere

Taking full advantage of the beautiful southern California weather, Paris Hilton was spotted out and about on Robertson Boulevard yesterday (September 29) making some purchases.

The “Simple Life” hottie stopped into Kitson boutique for some new duds, emerging with several shopping bags full of fantastic finds.

As for her new reality show “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” it sounds like we have a lot to look forward to when it premieres on MTV tonight, September 30th at 10pm EST.

Paris told press, “The person who won is now my best friend. We hang out. Yeah, we’re really friends. We’ve been having barbecues and hanging out at the house. The winner and I have been pretty low-key so far, because it is top secret right now.”

On one episode, Miss Hilton reportedly treats the girls to a trip to Las Vegas. “They (the contestants) were so excited. We went on a private jet to Las Vegas and they had never been on a private plane. It was nice to really show them things they maybe never could do in their life. They were really appreciative and so sweet.”

Nick Jonas:New Wheels

As always, Nick looked pinup perfect in a white v-neck t-shirt with khaki trousers, white Converse All-Stars, and, of course, his left-hand purity ring.

The Jonas Brothers have just announced a couple of new concert dates, including a November 15th show at the San Diego Sports Arena, and a November 19th gig at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Janet Jackson: Rushed to the Hospital

She was all set to rock Montreal over the weekend, but instead of giving a concert, Janet Jackson was suddenly rushed to a nearby hospital.

According to reports, the “Let’s Wait Awhile” songstress “got suddenly ill” during her soundcheck and it was determined that she needed medical care, hence the show was cancelled.

A bummer for concertgoers, the show’s cancellation was announced to the audience just five minutes before LL Cool J’s opening set.
