Sean Kingston in ICU After Jet Ski Accident

Sean Kingston in ICU After Jet Ski Accident

Sean Kingston was rushed to the hospital Sunday, after his jet ski crashed into the Palm Island Bridge in Miami Beach. 

"Sean was heading west from the MacArthur Causeway and Miami Beach Islands when his personal watercraft collided with the bridge, and he and his female passenger ended up in the water," Jorge Pino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, told People.com. "A good Samaritan tended to the two of them until Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived and saw there were injuries."

The 21-year-old hip-hop star and his friend were taken to Jackson Ryder Trauma Center for treatment in Miami around 6 p.m. 

"Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU," his rep said in a statement Sunday night. "Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time." 

The cause of the accident is still being investigated, but authorities are saying that alcohol doesn't seem to be a factor.

Justin Bieber, who recently collaborated with Kingston on the tune "Eenie Meeni," sent a shout-out to his pal on Monday. "Got my friend @seankingston in my prayers tonight," the 17-year-old twittered. "A true friend and big bro. please keep him in your prayers tonight as well." 

Rihanna also sent her love to the "Beautiful Girls" singer via Twitter. "Sean we praying for u baby," she wrote on Monday.

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Could Post Highest First-Week Sales In A Decade

Album is projected to sell more than 1.15 million copies, the most since 'NSYNC's Celebrity in 2001.

Lady Gaga's Born This Way is projected to sell more than 1 million copies in its first week and could post the highest opening sales numbers in nearly 10 years, according to projections by Billboard.

Spurred by huge sales through Amazon.com — which priced Born This Way at 99 cents during its first two days of release (just one of a myriad of promotional schemes tied to the album — Gaga's new album is on track to move 1.15 million units, which would not only outpace the last artist to break the million mark (that would be Taylor Swift, whose Speak Now bowed with sales of 1,047,000 copies in November 2010) but would give her the biggest opening week since 'NSYNC's Celebrity, which sold 1.88 million copies in its first week way back in 2001.

Billboard reports that Born This Way sold more than 500,000 copies on its first day of release alone, including 330,000 copies on Amazon and 104,000 copies through iTunes. The album also dominated physical retail, selling more than 45,000 units through Best Buy and 35,000 through Target on the day it was released. It was also made available in an unprecedented amount of non-traditional retailers — more than 20,000 nationwide — including CVS Pharmacies, Whole Foods and Walgreens.

Given the number of locations in which it was sold, the pricing schemes implemented and the promotional ploys to which it was tied, there was some concern about just how to tally Born This Way's first-week sales. In the end, Billboard decided to count sales figures from Amazon (despite the 99-cent pricing) but not some from Best Buy, which gave the album away for free with a smartphone.

On Sunday, the album debuted at #1 on the U.K. album charts, selling more than 215,000 copies — the biggest first-week sales of the year — and also accomplishing the rather remarkable feat of outselling the rest of the U.K. top 10 combined.

Final U.S. sales results will be revealed on Wednesday.

David Beckham -- 'Speeding Really Bad' Before Crash

Filed under: David Beckham, 911 Call

David Beckham was driving like a MANIAC before swerving into another lane at a dangerously high speed ... and rear-ending a stalled vehicle earlier this month -- this according to multiple 911 calls.

0527_David_Beckham_Audio_911_EX2

One caller -- who claims she was driving behind David for several miles-- reported that David was "driving recklessly" and "speeding really bad" before slamming into the stalled car on May 6.

Another caller claims David was "definitely speeding" -- pulling in and out of the carpool lane ... "breaking a couple traffic laws."

As we previously reported, Beckham rear-ended another car with his Black Escalade ... on one of the busiest highways in L.A. -- and the other driver had to be taken to the hospital.

Beckham -- whose son Brooklyn was in the car with him at the time -- has not been arrested or cited.

A spokesman for Beckham tells us, "As unfortunate as accidents are, David was not cited by the police at the scene for any violations."

Lee DeWyze" Did He Refuse to Present 'Idol' Winner Trophy?

Lee DeWyze" Did He Refuse to Present 'Idol' Winner Trophy?

Dedicated American Idol fans may have been surprised to see season 9 winner Lee DeWyze hanging out in the audience during the season 10 finale -- especially since he didn't perform, was seated way back in the fifth row, and wasn't even acknowledged by Ryan Seacrest on the air. What happened to the tradition of featuring previous Idols on the finale? The answer to that depends on whose Twitter account you believe.

According to executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, Lee DeWyze declined an offer to present the trophy to this year's winner, Scotty McCreery.

"I was so upset Lee DeWyze wouldn't present the winners trophy to Scotty," Lythgoe tweeted on Thursday. "Especially as he'd been on the show this Season. I guess he was shy."

DeWyze, however, tells a different story. A few days before the finale, he wrote that he wouldn't be performing because "I wasn't asked to." Then after Lythgoe's dis on Thursday, DeWyze returned to Twitter to tell his side of the story.

"Hey everyone, first off I want to say congrats to Scotty & Lauren, awesome job," the guitar-playing Idol alum tweeted. "Well done Scotty! Secondly, just for the record... I was not asked to be involved in the Finale. It wasn't until about 2 minutes before they announced that Nigel had approached me and asked if he could 'borrow' me for a second.  I didnt feel a last second jump on stage was appropriate. It was Scotty's moment."

"I appreciate American Idol, and the opportunity it has given me. And the people who have made that show possible," DeWyze continued. "I am not angry, or bitter etc. It was an amazing Finale, and I would have loved to be a part of it. I just wasnt asked. Good luck to all the Contestants and stay true to yourself. Thanks everyone for your support, tour coming up... Good times :) I'll talk to you all soon. Love ya!"

Honest, but gracious. Well said, Lee.

This mini-drama is reminiscent of last year's kerfuffle over Adam Lambert's absence from the season 9 finale. The 2009 runner-up was supposedly cut from the Simon Cowell tribute number due to laryngitis, but he stated on Twitter that he "would have loved" to perform and wasn't asked. Sure, Lambert wasn't a first-place winner, but he's one of Idol's most successful graduates. In the future, we hope that the producers have a little more respect for these talented kids than they showed DeWyze and Lambert.

Roseanne Barr to Play Chelsea Handler's Aunt in New Sitcom?

Roseanne Barr to Play Chelsea Handler's Aunt in New Sitcom?

It looks like Roseanne Barr is making a play to return to primetime TV. First came the news, back in February, that Lifetime TV has ordered a season of Roseanne's Nuts, a reality series about her attempt to manage a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii. (Random!) And now The Hollywood Reporter says she's close to signing a deal to play Chelsea Handler's aunt in NBC's midseason comedy, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea.

The sitcom sounds perfect for this irreverent comedian. Created by Handler (and based on her book of the same name), the show is a semi-autobiographical look at the talk-show host's younger days as a hard-drinking, promiscuous bartender. Laura Prepon plays Handler's young self, and Handler plays her older sister, Sloan. Barr will make a number of guest appearances as her aunt -- no doubt with her own character flaws or, at least, very loud opinions!

Originally Barr was set to cameo on the show as a lesbian prison inmate, but that role went to Dot Marie Jones (Glee's scary Coach Beiste). 

For a time, Barr was arguably the most omnipresent star on TV. Her sitcom, Roseanne, aired from 1988-1997, and her personal life (bad romances, big weight fluctuations, family scandals) was the stuff of tabloid editors' dreams. But the 58-year-old comic has seemingly been -- dare we say it? -- lying low of late. Well, at least she hasn't been front and center on TV.

Sure, she's been around, doing stand-up comedy tours, hosting a radio show, writing three books, filming some TV guest spots and starring in a recent commercial for Snickers that was one of the most popular ads during the 2011 Super Bowl. But now she seems to be ready for a grander return to TV. The question is, are we?

Orlando Bloom Joins Cast of The Hobbit


Orlando Bloom is on his way back to Middle Earth.

Despite his character not having a role in the novel version of The Hobbit, director Peter Jackson confirms that Bloom will, indeed, portray Legolas in the wildly-anticipated film.

"Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas," Jackson wrote on his Facebook page. "I'm excited to announce today that we'll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I'm thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn't! I guess that's why he makes such a wonderful elf."

The Hobbit will hit theaters in late 2012.
