BACKSTREET COMES TO YOUR LIVING ROOM:
 

The Backstreet Boys' first ever network television special will be broadcast on May 30 on CBS, said a network spokesperson.

The special, called "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life," is scheduled to air at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The one-hour program will feature footage from BSB's performance at Los 
Angeles'Staples Center earlier this year. The special will also include 
never-before-seen clips of their early days and exclusive moments from their 
"Around the World in 100 promotional tour.

In addition to all this behind-the-scenes footage, many of the Backstreet Boys' hit songs will be featured, including "Larger Than Life," "I Want It That Way" and "Everybody" (Backstreet's Back).

Despite the fact that the movie isn't even finished yet, the makers of "The Lord of the Rings" threw a party at the Cannes Film Festival to celebrate the fantasy flick. Most of the film's stars were there, including Liv Tyler, Elijah Wood and Orland Bloom. The decorations were the real attraction though. The bar was six feet high, so that when you went up to it you felt just like a tiny hobbit, and the original sets from the film were flown in to give the fiesta a fantasy feel. Plus, there were extras walking around in full costume to give the party that "Middle Earth" vibe.
Sounds pretty awesome. Perhaps this shindig will start a new prom theme trend: A Night of Glamour and Gnomes.
 
IN TEARS:
A British report out today says that Christina Aguilera burst into tears when she saw the size of her room at Monte Carlo's super-duper-luxury hotel Hermitage. The diva was in the tiny municipality to attend yesterday's 2001 World Music Awards ceremony. (She took home the award for "World's best selling Latin female artist.")

WHO'S NEXT?

As part of the recent (seemingly never ending) barrage of celebs and their drug probs/arrests, yesterday Shannen Doherty pleaded no contest to charges of Driving Under the Influence and to having refused to submit to a blood test at the time.

The ex-90210 star was arrested last December when officers spotted her Ford pickup truck weaving on a Los Angeles freeway -- turns out she had a blood alcohol level of .13% -- 5 points higher than the legal limit.

The 30 year-old actress, who currently stars as one of the three Charmed sisters,faces 48 hours behind bars or a work release program (much like the one her ex TVbro, Jason Priestly did as part of his DUI sentence.)

Shannen's due to be sentenced on June 12th.
