O, what a night! First, Gloria Reuben leaves ER to tour with Tina Turner. Would supreme TV queens Rosie O'Donnell and Oprah Winfrey consider scuttling their talk shows to sing with La Tina? Hardly. But the gifted gabbers joined Turner onstage, along with Diana Ross and Luther Vandross, to perform "Simply the Best" at the launch party for Winfrey's new lifestyle magazine, O, in New York City.

Madonna, who is expecting baby No. 2 (dad is British director Guy Ritchie) this fall, showed off her expanding self while strolling with 3-year-old daughter Lourdes in Pasadena.

Ladies and gentlemen: We proudly present, for one night only, the legendary, many-hued, generally fabulous but nonetheless just-a-little-scary...Puff Daddies! Above, from left, that's Tom Jones, Sting and Ricky Martin, who joined James Taylor and Elton John on "Disco Inferno" at the 10th Rainforest Foundation benefit in New York City. Also performing at the concert, which raised $2.5 million, were Billy Joel (right), who escorted new girlfriend Trish Bergin, a TV newswoman, and Alexa Ray, 14, Joel's daughter with ex-wife Christie Brinkley.

Actor Bruce Willis cozied up to his girlfriend, Spanish model Maria Bravo, at the premiere of his comedy The Whole Nine Yards in Munich.

Not-so-fast Eddie: Although his partner, model Kathy Ireland, got all revved up crossing the finish line, the pace of a miniature car seemed a bit ho-hum for pro racer Paul Newman at the Kmart Kids Race Against Drugs national kickoff in Carson, Calif. The 90-city tour will end in November.

Get icky wit it: Pop prince Will Smith, looking less than fresh, claimed bragging rights to being slimed—an honor at L.A.'s Kids' Choice Awards.

Minnie's driver: Return to Me's Minnie Driver helped pump up her beau Josh Brolin, who went on to win the 24th annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach, Calif. The actor's dad, James Brolin, won the same race 22 years ago.

Britney Spears inspected the latest in eyewear—three-in-one sunglasses—while visiting Cologne, Germany. The 18-year-old fräulein was overseas to promote her second album, Oops!...I Did It Again, which will be released worldwide on May 16.
