Johnny Depp rocks!
The Lone Ranger actor joined Alice Cooper on stage at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Gonna dress you up in ... my poncho?

"She wore a rain poncho just like the rest of the crowd," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

Hanging out with new pal Joe Jonas might have given Connor Cruise some useful tips, as Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's son is starting to prove he's quite the ladies man.
After taking an unidentified brunette on a bowling date earlier in the week, Cruise, 17, a budding deejay, headed to Hyde Lounge at the Staples Center last week to catch the Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez show.
Cruise tried to remain incognito, sporting black pants, boots, a Louis Vuitton belt and red hoodie sweatshirt – with the hood pulled over his head much of the time. It didn't take long for him to cozy up to yet another brunette.

Jennie Garth made sure Monday night was relaxing for herself and for her three kids.
The actress and daughters Luca, Lola and Fiona came through 104.3 My FM's My Big Night Out 2 VIP lounge, at the Hollywood Bowl, where she was treated to a paraffin massage from a Burke Williams masseuse.
"Jennie told her kids to take photos with her," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She looked amazing and appeared to have shed some pounds. She seemed like she was in a great mood."
Following her pampering session, the newly single star rewarded her little ones for their patience by taking them to watch Kelly Clarkson in concert later that night.
The pop star performed a slew of hits, including, "My Life Would Suck Without You," "Since U Been Gone" and "Stronger," along with a cover of Fun.'s "We Are Young."
Just a couple of days earlier, the Bowl brought out Jerry O'Connell and Eric Stonestreet, who came to watch a performance of The Producers. The musical stars O'Connell's wife Rebecca Romijn, and Stonestreet's on-screen Modern Family beau, Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
"Jerry and Eric both looked beaming and happy," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Mel Brooks took the stage at the end."

Katy Perry is used to being the one on stage, but on Monday night, she was able to relax to the sounds of a live act other than her own.
The "Teenage Dream" singer took in a show by British indie pop band The xx, who hadn't performed in the U.S. in two-and-a-half years.
Perry, in a large bohemian-style black hat and a floor-length floral dress, hung toward the back of the Fonda Theatre in L.A., where the show was held.
"As her bra strap slid off of her left shoulder, a smiling Katy began to dance around to the band's hit, 'VCR,' " a source tells PEOPLE. "She was with a crew of pals, including her assistant and a few guy friends."

Fans of buzzed-about new R&B artist Frank Ocean were in for a special treat on Tuesday when they came to his show at the Wiltern in L.A.
Aside from being treated to his smooth sounds, the crowd also got a glimpse of Drake, who made a surprise appearance in the VIP section of the venue.
"He showed up in a white T-shirt and jeans, with a date on his arm," a concertgoer tells PEOPLE. "As the crowd noticed him walking in, they screeched and created a spotlight on him with their cell phones while taking his picture."
Once settled, the source says a head-bobbing Drake, "sang along to a majority of the tunes and seemed in great spirits while occasionally joking around with pals and taking pictures with fans."
The "Take Care" artist didn't show any overt PDA with his unidentifiable guest, but he "occasionally whispered in her ear," according to the insider.
Sara Bareilles and Keri Hilson were also guests at the show.

Forget fish and chips – Brit Gavin Rossdale is down with some good ol' fashioned American BBQ.
While his band, Bush, was in Lansing, Mich., to perform at the Common Ground Music Festival, the singer dropped into Meat. Southern BBQ and Carnivore Cuisine.
The singer, who was in a ripped tank top, picked up a BBQ feast: a full rack of ribs and a sampling of sauces, blue cheese and bacon potato salad, plus some Texas red chili to go, telling staff it was for a fishing trip off on the Grand River. He shook everyone's hand and even posed for a picture with a staffer.
"He was really cool. We tried to give him free food and his tour manager insisted on paying us," Meat. owner Sean Johnson tells PEOPLE, adding that he gave them a very generous tip, as well as giving the staffers passes to see the show that night.
The singer enjoyed his food so much that he gave the eatery a shout-out later that night on stage!

When Jay-Z took the stage with Kanye West in Paris, he had the support of his No. 1 fan: wife Beyoncé.
The new mom, 30, joined by pals Gwyneth Paltrow and Kelly Rowland, looked on from the VIP section of the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy as the two rappers rocked through a three-hour set list Friday. Justin Bieber also attended the show, which included a 50-plus-minute remix of hit "N----- in Paris."
Not singing along: West's girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, who didn't make it out to the first of three sold-out Watch the Throne tour stops in the City of Lights. Also missing: Jay-Z's other No. 1 fan, baby Blue Ivy Carter, nearly 5 months, who presumably stayed back at the hotel.
