If all goes according to plan, Selena Gomez's 18th birthday celebration won't turn up in the tabloids or the scandalous Web site TMZ. "Oh my goodness!" she says. "TMZ? You are not seeing me on TMZ!" She turned 18 yesterday, the night before her big-screen debut in "Ramona and Beezus," and it was "going out to dinner with my grandma and grandpa, who're flying out for my birthday" - all part of her anti-tabloid life and career strategy. "I'm boring. I spend time with my family, hang out with my mom and with a few friends.

POP STAR AND ACTRESS Selena Gomez joined "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia yesterday morning for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for The Voice, the multimedia center for patients that Seacrest's charitable foundation provided, reports Daily News columnist Dan Gross. The Daily News reported Thursday that Seacrest would be at CHOP yesterday, and Seacrest tweeted yesterday morning that Gomez would be a surprise guest. Once word spread about Gomez, rumors swirled that her boyfriend, Justin Bieber , would also attend the ceremony but, alas, it was not meant to be.

Hazel Day fidgeted with her iPhone. She was remarkably quiet. If an out-of-body experience had a look , the Mount Airy teen had it in spades. No wonder: She was about to meet Selena Gomez face-to-face, one-on-one, in person and in private. Gomez, perhaps best known for her Disney TV show, Wizards of Waverly Place , was in town on a sunny Friday morning to introduce her affordable fashion line, Dream Out Loud, with a meet and greet at the Center City Kmart before taking the stage for her evening show at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts.

SELENA GOMEZ needs a nap.

Between the post-show adrenaline rush and boyfriend Justin Bieber showing up to support her, Gomez had a late night and an early flight, and after two hours of interviews would be off to the King of Prussia Mall to greet thousands of screaming fans.

WHAT WITH all the juicy, men-behaving-badly gossip relegated to national (former CIA Director David Petraeus : need we say more?) and business news pages (Lockheed Martin honcho Christopher Kubasik resigned last week over a relationship with an employee), Tattle has to make do with . . . boys behaving mysteriously. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up - yes, our world hiccupped on its axis, too, when we heard the news over the weekend. But why they've come undone is still in question.

Selena Gomez flashes her string-of-pearls smile and black-olive eyes as 3,000 fans give her a rock-star welcome Monday at the King of Prussia Mall. The sound of Selenamania is an earsplitting squawk, something like that of squadrons of overexcited seagulls. Gomez, the recording sensation, star of the Disney TV series The Wizards of Waverly Place , and anchor of the Fox mistaken-identity comedy Monte Carlo (opening Friday), is buoyed by the shout-out. With self-assurance and self-doubt in dizzyingly equal proportions, Gomez, 18, is walking the tightrope from teen idol toward mature stardom in five-inch heels, struggling against the perception she's just a "Disney girl.

Lauryn drops Israeli show Lauryn Hill has canceled her Tel Aviv concert, scheduled for Thursday, but the outspoken artist has no intention of boycotting Israel, as some have claimed.

Lucy, the scary version Residents of Celoron, N.Y., are proud TV and film icon Lucille Ball was born in their town. They love her. Dearly. What they don't love so much is a statue of Lucy by artist Dave Poulin that was erected in town in 2009. It's not just that the comedian looks like a demented serial killer. The face is all wrong - the eyes big and monstrous, the teeth threatening and prominent, the hair kind of masculine. Concerned citizens have spent six years trying to persuade town leaders to redo the piece or get rid of it. Celoron Mayor Scott Schrecengost tells the Post-Journal in Jamestown, N.Y., he doesn't want to waste any more taxpayer money on the statue.
