MIRANDA LAMBERT has major plans tonight and is all set to meet one of her biggest fans. The country queen broke down in tears during a show in Hartford, Connecticut, last week when she saw a sign that read: "3 combat tours. (Your) voice was the last thing I listened to EVERY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!" JEFF TUDISCA hand-made the message to his favorite singer, and now he hopes he can "hold it together" when he makes Ran Ran's acquaintance at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Just in time for this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards... MARC JACOBS is launching an exclusive MTV-themed capsule collection. (Whatta coincidence!) It includes 1980s-nostalgia-styled MTV logo sweatshirts, tee-shirts and bags in bright colors and sequined oversized cashmere sweatshirts. Fashionista.com says it's a very limited edition collection. Pre-orders start today and only lasts through Tuesday. After that, you're outta luck if you "want your MTV." (Bartha)
A 5-year-old boy in New Jersey is being called a local hero.
Little WILLIAM EVERTZ, Jr. saved all his allowance money for seven months. Then, he used all the cash to buy Subway sandwiches for the local police department.

He also got to take a spin in a police car with the lights flashing and siren blaring. (Still)

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine survey also found that hair transplant recipients were rated as more "successful, and approachable" than guys who had not had the surgery. (Bartha)
