Photo by Patricia Schlein/Star Max/GC Images(NEW YORK) — It’s hard to believe Dakota Fanning isn’t 21 yet, considering her career in Hollywood. And although the starlet doesn’t hit that milestone birthday until next February, she already has ideas on how she’d like to spend it…and it’s not in a bar.

“I was just thinking about it,” Fanning told E! News. “I kind of want to go do karaoke even though I’m terrified to do it. But I think if I’m 21 maybe I can have something to help me.”

Perhaps Fanning will return to one of reality show star Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants in Los Angeles. “I love Lisa,” she said. “I met her actually. I had my 16th birthday at her restaurant before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was a thing. I saw this fabulous woman with this cute dog and then it turned out it was Lisa Vanderpump.”

Fanning most recently starred in The Last of Robin Hood.

Photo: Cliff Lipson/CBS(LAS VEGAS) — Jerry Lewis is no longer involved in the Muscular Dystrophy Association annual telethon that aired Sunday, but he was honored Friday for his decades-long fundraising efforts to find a cure for the disease by Australian officials who presented him with their country’s highest civilian award.

The Las Vegas Sun reports Australian officials with the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, which is not formally associated with the MDA, flew to Las Vegas and honored Lewis as a Member of the Order of Australia. The 88-year-old Lewis received a gold medal and a lapel pin. Lewis has helped raise more than $2 billion for MDA during his 45-year association with the group, and has also visited Australia and raised millions of dollars for that country’s MDF.

Sunday’s two-hour MDA Show of Strength Telethon on ABC raised more than $56 million.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association severed its fundraising relationship with Lewis after the 2010 MDA Labor Day Telethon.

ABC/Randy Holmes(CHICAGO) — Two newlyweds in Chicago got a unique wedding photo Sunday, when Snoop Dogg dropped in and crashed their nuptials.

A photographer for Allusion Photography, which had shot the wedding ceremony at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, spotted the rapper as he stepped out of a limo, according to the photography studio’s president, Sherry Hagerman.

The groom’s mother, Mary Rose Frank, told the photographer “she was Snoop’s biggest fan,” and the photographer convinced the artist’s entourage to make the introduction, Hagerman said.

“They had a great conversation and a ton of laughs inside the bar,” she said. “Snoop was a blast to be around.”

Snoop Dogg, who performed at the North Coast Music Festival on Sunday, posted a photo of himself and the smiling couple, Joe Scheller and Neesha Ghadiali, on his Instagram account.

Photo by Ragnar Singsaas/Redferns via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jimi Jamison, the lead singer of the rock band Survivor, has died, the band announced. Jamison was 63.

“Survivor is very shocked & saddened by the passing of our brother Jimi Jamison,” the band wrote on its Twitter page. “Our thoughts, love & prayers go out to his friends and family.”

Jamison grew up in Tennessee, meeting music icon Elvis Presley when he was 10 years old – a chance encounter in a drug store. He later fronted a local band, Target, during the 1970s.

He first found national fame in the early 1980s as the lead singer of the band Cobra.

But his biggest successes came after joining Survivor. The group had drawn international acclaim for 1982′s “Eye of the Tiger” from the hit movie Rocky III, but struggled to replicate the song’s success. In 1983, lead singer Dave Bickler was forced to leave Survivor due to vocal issues.

Jamison initially wasn’t interested in joining Survivor because the group was more pop-focused than his previous acts.

“I really didn’t want to do it, because I was in a heavy band, I always played really heavy music, and their stuff was a little lighter than I was used to,” he said of Survivor in a 2008 interview with Living Legends Music.

But Jamison joined on, and a string of hits followed – “I Can’t Hold Back,” “High on You” and “The Search Is Over,” as well as “Burning Heart,” which was featured in the movie Rocky IV.

Jamison was one of the great power-ballad singers, a tour de force vocal presence that was perfect for energetic arena rock.

Jamison contributed that energy for the theme song of TV’s Baywatch, co-writing and singing “I’m Always Here” for the popular television series.

In recent years he returned to Survivor – that’s him pumping up office climber “Glen” in a popular 2005 Starbucks Doubleshot commercial – and also released his third solo album, 2012′s “Never Too Late.”

ABC/Katie Yu(NEW YORK) — Winter has come a little early to Storybrooke, Maine, the fictional location of ABC’s fairy tale drama series Once Upon a Time.

In a new trailer teasing the show’s upcoming fourth season, Elsa, from Disney’s blockbuster film Frozen, is seen walking past some of the town’s signature landmarks, leaving a chill in her wake.

The trailer also shows Elsa getting a chilly reception from Once Upon a Time‘s other characters.

Fringe actress Georgina Haig has been tapped to play the Disney princess with the power to produce ice, snow and frost.

John Rhys-Davies, who played the dwarf Gimli in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will play Pabbie, whose healing powers in Frozen helped Elsa’s sister Anna. Tyler Jacob Moore, who plays Tony Markovich on Showtime’s Shameless, will play Hans, Frozen‘s good prince-turned-bad prince from the Southern Isles.

The fourth season of Once Upon a Time premieres September 28 on ABC.

Disney is the parent company of ABC.

ABC/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg tied the knot Sunday in Chicago.

The former co-host of The View wore a strapless, white gown with a see-through white veil. The couple was wed at the Hotel Baker in the Chicago suburb of St. Charles, Illinois.

The Blue Bloods actor proposed to McCarthy this past April with a 10-carat yellow sapphire ring. Her son, Evan, helped his new step-father pop the question.

“Of course, I said, ‘Yes,’” McCarthy said of the proposal a few days later on The View.

This is the second marriage for both.

Donnie’s brother Mark and his family were not on hand; they were in Los Angeles celebrating the birthday of Ella Rae, Mark’s eldest daughter — and incidentally Donnie’s goddaughter. While they weren’t at the wedding — which some tabloids chalked up to Mark’s not approving of McCarthy — Mark and his clan in fact Instagrammed a video sending their love to the happy couple.

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — The FBI said Monday it is “aware” that someone has leaked nude photos purporting to be pictures of dozens of A-list celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton and is “addressing the matter.”

The feds made its statement as celebrities were outraged over the hacked photos.

The statements came in response to the release of photos purportedly of dozens of celebrities in various states of undress. The photos first appeared on an image sharing site called 4chan.

It’s not clear how the photos were obtained or whether they are all genuine.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” a spokesperson for Lawrence told ABC News. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Upton’s attorney, Lawrence Shire, echoed those sentiments.

“This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client, Kate Upton’s, privacy,” he said. “We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”

Meantime, a representative for Ariana Grande called her allegedly leaked photos “completely fake.”

Singer Victoria Justice did the same via Twitter, writing “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*”

Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead said she had deleted the photos later posted of her, saying on Twitter, “To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves. Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked.”

“Even if you have deleted those photos from your phone, often times they’ve already been uploaded into the cloud,” said Clifford Neuman, the director of the USC Center for Computer System Security. “When you deleted them from the phone, they continue to exist.”

Representatives for other celebrities who allegedly were hacked didn’t immediately return calls for comment.

Hacking of celebrities’ personal accounts has happened before. In a separate case in 2012, a Florida man was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to hacking into email accounts and stealing compromising photos of celebrities, including Scarlet Johansson, Mila Kunis and Christina Aguilera.
