SEARCHING FOR some cool stocking stuffers with a techy edge for under $30? How about a battery-enhanced toothbrush that sings like Justin Bieber, a protective case for a smartphone, or a vibrating magic "bullet" that turns a carton of eggnog into a loudspeaker? You may not have to go far for such cute stuff. Even stores not known for gadgets stack 'em high this time of year. Of course, goodies galore also await online for those who act fast. BEYOND BEYOND: A good example of living past its image is Bed, Bath and Beyond, notwithstanding the goofy "Dancing and Singing Rabbi" ($14.99)

Gossip guzzlers are going stark raving nuts over a TMZ photo that shows America's sweetie, Drew Barrymore , 37 Wednesday, outside a physician's office holding a sonogram photo print. This must mean she and fiancé Will Kopelman are expecting their first baby! Heck, it could also mean Drew had a friend's photo! Perhaps she wanted to mess with TMZ and asked some random patient, "Ma'am, may I borrow your sonogram?"

To paraphrase F. Scott Fitzgerald , a genius is someone who can hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time, who can flourish even when in the grips of paradox. Thus, we present the paradoxical title of a new celeb memoir, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story . It can't be believed yet it's true! Such is the life of Arnold Schwarzenegger , who will release his memoirs next year. Anonymous Source tells People the tome is sadly only a selective, tell-some-but-not-all confession.

Justin Bieber is no longer a boy. But, honestly, is he yet a man? The Canadian megastar's mum, Pattie Mallette , isn't sure. She does know one thing: She's not quite ready to let him go, to fly the coop. "Um, yeah, I mean, he's growing up," Pattie told Access Hollywood on Wednesday. "He's 19. I mean, he's not my baby. I want to be able to take away free will sometimes and be able to do everything for him. " BeliebMom says it's tough to see some of the media reports about her boy, such as a story that the "Baby" singer on Tuesday assaulted a neighbor at his Calabasas, Calif., pad. "I'm sure you can appreciate as a mom how I feel when I read some of these stories," said Pattie.

M OSHE BENABOU , a former bodyguard for Justin Bieber, sued the pop superstar Thursday, seeking more than $420,000 in overtime and other wages and claiming that the singer repeatedly struck him during an October incident. Benabou's suit alleges that Bieber berated him and repeatedly punched him in the chest after a disagreement about how to handle a member of the singer's entourage. After he walked away, Bieber fired him, the suit claims. Benabou claims that he was mistakenly told that he wasn't entitled to receive OT despite having worked 14- to 18-hour days between March 2011 and October 2012.

WE REALIZE Time magazine is simply trying to sell magazines and Tattle appreciates that. Sometimes we try to sell newspapers. But if we gave you a list with the names Jennifer Lawrence , Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis on it, you might guess that it was a list of important figures in movies. If the list had Justin Timberlake , Jay-Z , Beyoncé , Frank Ocean , Christina Aguilera and Justin Bieber 's manager Scooter Braun , you might guess that it was a list of people having an impact on the current music scene.

In this, our civilization's winter of discontent, art has become nothing but commerce and commerce the highest form of art. So it is. Just ask Beyoncé . The diva's PR machine has so hyped her upcoming album that fans are desperate for any crumbs of music. She has obliged by releasing a snippet of the new song "Standing on the Sun" in a 90-second video. Mind you, it's not a music video, but a TV ad for H&M. (Fact, it's a double advert: for the retail clothing company, and of course, for B's LP.)

WHEN MY DAUGHTER Eve was little, we were inseparable. I'd listen to her talk about her imaginary boyfriend in Florida. I'd hold long conversations on her pink feather toy phone. I even played jacks with her once or twice, because seeing her smile was worth every bounce of the ball. But girls grow up, and when they do, they become different people. It's not as drastic a transformation as Linda Blair's in "The Exorcist," but it's pretty darn close. In fact, if you put a regular teenage girl in a lineup with a chick possessed by Beelzebub, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference.
