Rumor has it newlyweds Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell will spend their honeymoon in the Caribbean, but it may take them awhile to get there. The couple was married yesterday at the Old Marylebone Town Hall in central London, where Paul also married his first wife, Linda.
According to various reports, the couple may weeks before heading off for a honeymoon due to Paul's busy work schedule; he is about to embark on another world tour and the couple already have time in the Hamptons on the horizon.

Don't know about where you are, but this balmy East Coast weather is getting us excited for summer music festivals. Which is fitting, because Coachella, the first mega-event of the festival season, takes off today on the other side of the country in Indio, California.
Coachella has finally posted the set times, and fans have been busy programming their iPhone apps and making some tough decisions on who to see and who to skip. Morrissey or Girl Talk? Franz Ferdinand or Bright Eyes? The Cure or Public Enemy? (OK well, maybe not much fan overlap on that one.)
For those who can't make it out to the desert, AT&T is streaming live video of the festival all weekend long, so you can catch full sets online from the likes of M.I.A., the Hold Steady, and Paul McCartney. Sweet!

Talk about an entourage! Paul McCartney played his first ever show in Israel last night to a crowd of 50,000--not including the 5,000 security guards he hired to guard Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park for the show.
Sir Paul opened the show with "Hello Goodbye" after a full day of visits to a local music school (where his attempt to play the violin made children merry) and Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity. Of course, with 5,000 guards, he probably had a very large presence in the country, from which The Beatles were disinvited in 1965.
That beefed-up security probably made him feel safer, but it had to attract a lot of attention when McCartney was in Israel. Who is better to travel with: 5,000 security personnel or a few well-placed ninjas?

Looks like Heather Mills' hotel-dwelling days could be over: The moving vans will soon be circling around her new apartment in the far West Village of New York City.
Mills, the former wife of former Beatle Paul McCartney, paid around $5 million for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, full-floor pad on the 9th floor of 173 Perry Street, a building of luxe condos designed by architect Richard Meier.
She even moved up her closing date, according to the New York Post, so she could move in sooner and start her new life with five-year-old Bea. After the jump, a link to our map and a photo of her new digs!

Former Beatle and recent divorcé Paul McCartney just got an honorary degree from Yale University. Those robes just make everyone look better!
And there's no rest for the other weary stars working the commencement circuit. Harvard has invited Harry Potter author JK Rowling. After last year's backlash about "Lost" actor and alum Matthew Fox, Columbia University went the straight-and-narrow and picked New York City school superintendent Joel Klein--only to see sister school Barnard College nab Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
President Bush is doing double duty this weekend at the US Air Force Academy and Furman University in Georgia, and tiny Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois continued its tradition of getting high-wattage speakers by snagging Madeline Albright. (Both Bill Clinton and Stephen Colbert have spoken there in recent years.)
If you want to chase down your favorite star, USA Today has a great list. Stay tuned for our report from Planet Oprah in June!
