The Beat

GUITAR HERO assembled an all-star cast for its new TV ad. Kobe Bryant channels his inner Tom Cruise, replicating the Old Time Rock and Roll lip-synching scene in Risky Business while Alex Rodriguez (guitar), Michael Phelps (guitar) and Tony Hawk (drums) back him up. "I was honored to be in it; the lineup's extraordinary," says Hawk. "I felt like a lottery winner."... Gisele Bündchen (right) hasn't seen her man Tom Brady in uniform lately, but she got close to The Shield star Michael Chiklis, who was wearing a number 12 Patriots jersey on Live with Regis and Kelly. Chiklis, a Pats fan, was subbing for Regis Philbin, and he, Bündchen and Kelly Ripa did a karaoke version of Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer. "Michael is living out his Tom Brady fantasy," Ripa said. "I'm living out my Gisele fantasy, and Gisele Bündchen is living out a nightmare."... After Kim Kardashian spent her 28th birthday in a Birmingham, Ala., hospital with boyfriend Reggie Bush, who had arthroscopic knee surgery, Bush paid her back. A few days later in Las Vegas, where she was expecting to celebrate her birthday at the nightclub LAX without him, he surprised her by knocking on her hotel room door. "A birthday I will never forget," she says. "He wins the best boyfriend award!"
