Look for TONY BENNETT and LADY GAGA to take a night off from their "Cheek to Cheek tour" to perform at HILLARY CLINTON's $1-thousand dollar a person fundraiser tonight at New York City's Plaza Hotel.
The concert is being billed as a one-night only "intimate performance in support of Hillary for America," with Hillary trying to boost fundraising totals before the June 30 quarter Federal Election Commission deadline.
PRINCE HARRY may have landed himself a new lady. Gossip Girl reports the good-timin' royal did some serious flirting with JENNA COLEMAN from the show "Doctor Who" and they were spotted having a great time at the Royal Ascot races a few days later. Word is their busy schedules don't allow much time for a serious romance --she's filming in America while he's headed to South Africa.
Phone starter: Fess up, ladies --would you rather date an A-list actor, real-life prince or disgustingly wealthy heir? (Lee)
PRINCE GEORGE is one trend-setting toddler. Fashionista.com says the not-quite-yet-2-year-old royal heir to the throne was spotted wearing a pair of blue Crocs at a polo match last weekend. Faster than you can say "Tally-ho!" Amazon reported that sales of Crocs on its website had skyrocketed 15-hundred percent! (Bartha)

Losers in Lockup:
Warning: Note disgusting content!
Police in Scottsdale, Arizona, have nabbed the "Mail Slot Urinator".
Security video from June 3rd shows a male suspect out walking his dog, then stopping to relieve himself into the mail slot of Atelier kitchen and bath showroom. A rug and several pieces of mail were destroyed. The store's owner thought it might be retaliation for several noise complaints he made against the bar across the street. Police say it turns out he was right. 30-year-old DAVID AZARI, an Iraq War veteran, has now been charged with the crime.
Azari is the head bouncer at Rockbar across the street. And, police say they've matched him --and his dog --to the surveillance footage. (Still)
