Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will always have Paris — and paparazzi. The coy couple are rippling waves in the French capital as they do their last minute prepping for the wedding of the millennium this weekend. People reports that gawkers came out to watch Kardashian, 33, and West, 36, shop for haute things and spend some serious euros. So where will the retail-happy lovebirds actually tie the knot? It’s looking like the old bait and switch. We hear that a dinner will go down in Paris, then guests will be flown to Florence, Italy, for the actual ceremony. Seriously. Really. No, we’re not joking.

All that jazz

Former President Bill Clinton will get a chance to play his saxophone when the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz honors him with its Founder’s Award. The Monk Institute announced that that Clinton will receive the award at a Nov. 9 all-star concert at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater featuring Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dianne Reeves, Dee Dee Bridgewater and others. The proceeds will support the institute’s free jazz education programs worldwide.

Distant voices

The two weirdest performances at the Billboards in Vegas Sunday night were from people who weren’t actually there. Miley Cyrus sang a version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds from the UK, where she is on tour, along with The Flaming Lips. She and Lips lead singer Wayne Coyne were dressed in shiny coats that appeared to be made of Christmas tree tinsel. But the Hannah Montana hellraiser was outdone by a ghost, when a hologram of Michael Jackson made its debut, performing Slave to the Rhythm, a song from the posthumous album Xscape.

To the highest bidder

George Harrison’s 1962 Rickenbacker guitar has sold at auction for $657,000. Harrison purchased the guitar in 1963 at Fenton’s Music store in Mount Vernon, Illinois, while visiting his sister. The Julien’s Auctions sale of rock ’n’ roll memorabilia was held over the weekend at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. Harrison had the guitar refinished from a Fireglo red to black to match John Lennon’s Rickenbacker. Other items in the sale included Lady Gaga’s 1990 Red Rolls-Royce Corniche III automobile. It sold for $125,000.

Suit rages on

The Supreme Court ruled that a copyright dispute over the 1980 Oscar-winning movie Raging Bull can go another round in court. The justices said in a 6-3 decision that Paula Petrella, daughter of the late screenwriter Frank Petrella, did not wait too long to file her lawsuit against Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer claiming an interest in the film. Petrella’s father collaborated with legendary boxer Jake LaMotta on a book and two screenplays, which inspired the movie.

Facing her fears

Ain’t no stopping her now. Jennifer Lopez wants to be a quadruple threat: singer, actress, dancer, now author. The entertainer has an agreement with Penguin Group for a book, her first, about her “cathartic” 2012 world tour. True Love will be published in English and Spanish and be released Oct. 29. Hint: The book will be written in diary form, and Lopez will confide her greatest fears and how she overcame them.

Heating up

You can’t say the stars of TV’s Hawaii Five-O are commitmentphobes. Scott Caan is to become a first-time dad with one of the show’s costume designers, Kacy Byxbee. And Alex O’Loughlin recently married his baby mama, surfer/model Malia Jones. It is Jones’ third marriage and the Australian hunk’s first.

In related news, Grammy winning producer-musician Kenneth “Babyface“ Edmonds married backup dancer Nicole Pantenburg, the mother of his 5-year-old daughter Peyton. He’s 55, she’s 41.

    Cameron Diaz defends bestie Drew Barrymore

    Don’t mess with Cameron Diaz, at least when it comes to her friends. During the around the world media blitz for her latest bomb Sex Tape, the actress called in to Australia’s KIIS 106.5’s Kyle & Jackie O show, and cut short an interview with co-host Kyle Sandilands after he made a comment about her Charlie’s Angels costar Drew Barrymore. Sandilands remarked that the girl in the raunchy comedy (Giselle Eisenberg) reminded him of Barrymore in ET, adding snarkily that he hoped she didn’t go down the same path of drug use. Diaz hit back: “I’m sure, Kyle, you’ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty clean; always did it right? Congratulations,” then cut the interview short and hung up.
