Twenty-five years of Oprah shows are nearly coming to a close, and all the major stars are coming out of the woodwork to join in the celebrations. Â BeyoncÃ©, Dakota Fanning, Tom Cruise, and even Madonna came out to Chicago to take part in the taping of the three final episodes of Oprah’s final season.
Other famous guests included Will Smith, Tom Hanks, Queen Latifah, Stevie Wonder, and recently-separated Maria Shriver. Â The three shows were taped in front of a live audience of nearly 20,000 screaming fans, and will air next week on May 23, 24, and 25. Â After that, Oprah will be working full time on her new network, OWN.

Jack White (LOVE!)

July 9th is the most random Celeb Birthday ever! Snarkista agrees, and sees some crazy similarities with MOST of the people on this list! Best wishes to all of the water babies born today, and here’s hoping that Snarkista doesn’t get any appliances. Unless it’s that fab stainless grill she spotted.
Holy insufferability, Victoria Beckham! What is UP with THIS jet-set outfit? You look like a cross between The Fly and Karl Lagerfeld. No, really. Those are Karl’s sunglasses, and he wants them back. Tom Hanks wants his Polar Express cap back too, and PETA is coming for that heinous coat- er, dress -uh, torso-cover. Swat ’em off with your giant Poshpurse. Hopefully you aren’t wearing those ridiculous boots with no heels so you can RUN.
Yeah. These boots.
