Littlest Jagger finally has a name

Born Dec. 8, Mick Jagger’s eighth child finally has a name, according to Page Six, and it’s a regular doorstop: Deveraux Octavian Basil Jagger. The proud mother is the 73-year-old Jagger’s girlfriend, Melanie Hamrick, 29. Jagger’s daughter Elizabeth posted the news to Instagram on Friday, along with a cute-as-pie picture that was later taken down. Jagger had four children with Jerry Hall. He also procreated with Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger and Luciana Gimenez Morad.

Marilyn Monroe’s last script

A typewritten script from 1962 for “Something’s Got to Give,” with handwritten notes by Marilyn Monroe, sold at auction for $25,000 Thursday, according to People.com. Monroe ultimately got fired from the film, directed by George Cukor, for being disruptive on the set, but co-star Dean Martin refused to work with anyone else. Two months after she was fired, Monroe, 36, was dead. The script, which never made it to the silver screen, was written by comedy legend Mel Brooks, but America’s favorite blonde apparently didn’t think much of his skills: “Needs some funny lines,” Monroe wrote in the margin.

Detroit high-schooler makes good in jazz

Michelle: Obama Not running, period

In an appearance on the People Entertainment Network, the first couple recently took video questions from elementary school students around the country. One wanted to know which of the two was funnier. “The first lady,” said President Obama without hesitation, while his wife nodded her agreement. Another child, Absolon, 8, asked whether he could look forward to Michelle Obama being his president in four-to-eight years. “No, I’m not going to run for president,” said the first lady. “But what I want to make sure you do is go to school and get good grades. Because we’re looking at you to possibly be a president someday too, but you can’t do that unless you study and listen to your parents. But,” she added, speaking of herself, “we’re out.”
