Speaking of Sir Elton John ...
the Lumineers revealed in a recent interview that their drummer got bitch slapped by Elton at the Grammys! "We saw Elton John's suit and his brightness and his entourage and Elton John turns and [Jeremiah] says 'I'm sorry man, we're in The Lumineers and we're just big fans of yours,' they explained. EJ replied he was a big fan of theirs and the drummer said, "There's no frigging way you listen to our album!" An indignant Elton responded by slapping him in the face and saying, "The hell I didn't! I definitely did!" The band considers this a "special moment."
KIM KARDASHIAN'S baby bump also made an appearance at Elton's Oscar party. In a plunging white floorlength dress that showed her ever-growing curves, Kim cradled her growing bump as she posed for photogs.

MAZEL TOV! CHRISTINA APPLEGATE / JANET JACKSON: I don't know how they kept it a secret this long in this day and age, but JANET JACKSON married billionaire Qatari businessman Wissam Al Mana sometime last year. Reports claimed they recently tied the knot in a big wedding, but the couple denied that, while confirming they are already hitched. "The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true. Last year we were married in a quiet, private and beautiful ceremony," the couple told Entertainment Tonight in a statement.
This is Janet's third trip down the aisle. She was previously married to singer James DeBarge and music video director Rene Elizondo. It's also not her first secret wedding -- she kept her nuptials with Elizondo under wraps the entire time they were together.
2. CHRISTINA APPLEGATE made THE BIG MISTAKE in a private ceremony, according to her rep. The lucky guy is her baby daddy, Martyn Lenoble. They've been together four years, and have a 2-year-old daughter.
LOHAN LUNACY - LINDSAY OWES MORE TAX MONEY/WANTS CRIMINAL CASE DISMISSED: LINDSAY LOHAN'S lawyer filed paperwork yesterday to get her lying-to-the cops criminal case dismissed on the grounds she was never read her Miranda rights.
It seems she's grasping at straws at best since cops in California are allowed to talk to people who are involved in a car accident without reading them their rights. The problem for Lindsay is that she lied to the officers during that questioning, telling them she wasn’t driving the car that crashed.
Meanwhile ... Linds has even more tax trouble. Lindsay owed the IRS over $93K for 2009 and $140K for 2010, and now TMZ reports she also owes the state of California over $56K for 2011. Lindsay paid off 2009 thanks to a $100,000 check from CHARLIE SHEEN, but she still on the hook for the other two.

THIS JUST IN - JENNIFER ANISTON IS A DIVA: Here's a news flash courtesy of Radaronline ... JENNIFER ANISTON is a diva. A source claims that while filming an untitled project in Connecticut Jen refused to eat lunch with the cast and crew.
"Every day at lunch the entire cast and crew head to a cafeteria facility where they all sit down and eat lunch together for well over an hour,’ the source told Radaronline, "But the only person who doesn’t eat with everyone else is Jen. She quickly grabs a lunch to go and leaves.’ Are they even allowed to refer to her as 'Jen'?
In addition, the snitch claims that not only is Aniston's private trailer more plush than anyone elses, she's parked it miles away from the set and far away from the other cast members. And while Jennifer isn’t rude to anyone’s face, "her behavior is a clear indicator to everyone that she’s not approachable."
KIM KARDASHIAN BLAMES SISTER KHLOE FOR KRIS HUMPHRIES: KIM KARDASHIAN is blaming her sister KHLOE for her 72-day marriage. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Kim reveals that it was her younger sister's whirlwind romance with LAMAR ODOM that made her believe in love at first sight. “I saw fast marriages like Khloe and Lamar’s and that was what seemed to work,” Kim says. “[Now] I say give it a good six months before you commit. Feelings change, even if it seems so lustful.”
As for current boyfriend KANYE WEST ... Kim says, “This is where I probably always should have been. I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me.”
