Britney Spears, shopping with a pal at midtown Manhattan's Innovation Luggage. After browsing for less than 10 minutes, the pregnant singer opted for a $219 Boyt Solera upright wheeled suitcase and the $168 matching satchel. "She was really nice," says a store employee. "She was happy and seemed in a good mood."

Paula Abdul, dining at Asia de Cuba at the Mondrian Hotel in L.A. The American Idol judge headed there after finalists Katharine McPhee and Taylor Hicks delivered their final performances. She feasted on calamari salad and tuna pica.

Beyonce, dancing her "butt off to every song" at the Gnarls Barkley concert at New York City's Webster Hall, says a source. The singer attended the hip-hop duo's show with beau Jay-Z and Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Mariah Carey, hanging out with American Idol judge Randy Jackson and her nephew Shawn McDonald at a New York City benefit for Operation Smile. The singer told us that though she's been on a "really bleak diet, which is basically soups and fish prepared really blandly," she recently indulged in a slice of pizza. "I had to do it," she said.
