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.

EVERY TIME TV news jumps on a fast-breaking story, you need to remember one thing: The first reports are almost always wrong. This never was a problem in entertainment reporting because no one cared if they were a few minutes late with a celebrity story. Now it's a problem. Yesterday, following the DUI arrest of Amanda Bynes , the first reports said sources were claiming she was high on weed. Now it turns out she may have been high on Adderall or some other prescribed drug.

Phil Rudd, drummer for Aussie rockers and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers AC/DC , was charged Thursday in a court in New Zealand (he lives there) with hiring hit men to kill two people. No word on whom he was trying to murder. Rudd's has been with AC/DC since 1974, with a break from 1983 to 1994. 'Alex From Target' gets 15 crazy minutes It might be nice to be 16-year-old Alex LaBeouf (no relation, we don't think, to actor Shia LaBeouf , but just as fun to spell)

Skyfall , the 23d James Bond film, hauled in a franchise-record of $87.8 million in its first weekend at U.S. theaters. We at "Sideshow" know it's because Daniel Craig is the most dashing Bond in the history of Bonds. Please, Hollywood, don't let him go! Or, let him go and send him to stay in Philadelphia. Either way . . . Pretty good for a smock Follow the yellow brick road: Judy Garland 's blue pinafore from The Wizard of Oz nabbed $480,000 at Julien's auction of Hollywood memorabilia over the weekend, $441,600 more than Julie Andrews' Sound of Music dress fetched.
