A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
Madonna says she has forgiven Elton John for, among other things, comparing her to a fairground stripper. She demonstrated that she wants to mend fences by dedicating her song “Masterpiece” to him at a concert in France. Of course, “Masterpiece,” from her film “W.E.,” is the track that beat Elton John’s “Hello, Hello” from “Gnomeo & Juliet” for the best song Golden Globe. So, uh, maybe the fences still aren’t mended?

TMZ reports that the divorce settlement between Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes left the actress with much less child support than she would have received if the case had gone to trial. The TMZ report, citing sources familiar with the documents, says Holmes will receive $400,000 a year in child support, which Cruise must pay until their daughter, Suri Cruise, is 18. He also is covering all related health, insurance and other educational costs and has agreed that she will not attend a residential school. (TMZ)
Katy Perry and John Mayer, who never officially confirmed they were dating, apparently are not dating anymore. That’s a shame. I was really hoping that at some point he’d be photographed wearing his apparently unremovable hat while Perry had this on her head. Alas, that dream is dead. (E! Online)
Jessica Alba and Eva Longoria will play “key roles” at the Democratic National Convention; meanwhile, Jeff Bridges keeps it bipartisan by going to both the Republican and Democratic conventions to advocate on behalf of the No Kid Hungry campaign. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Angela Bassett will play Coretta Scott King in a Lifetime movie. (Vulture)
Brighten your Friday by listening to this recently uncovered Jackson 5 song, “If the Shoe Don’t Fit,” to be released next week as part of a collection of rare tracks from the group. It’s pretty delightful. (NPR)
