Hello on this Tuesday, the 11 of March 2008. I'm Rebecca Field with todays UPI entertainment update.

There are now five new members of the rock and roll hall of fame. Pop star Madonna, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, rocker John Mellencamp, The Dave Clark Five and instrumental group The Ventures were all inducted into the famous hall last night. The night included all star appearances like Justin Timberlake...who inducted Madonna and Tom Hanks who welcomed the Dave Clark Five into the museum. The event also included tribute performances by stars like Aretha Franklin and Iggy Pop and the Stooges.

A Los Angeles judge is giving Britney Spears an allowance. The pop star will apparently be given a budget of $1500 of spending money a week on a debit card. In addition the judge is allowing the pop star to hire two specialized attorney's to help deal with her affairs while she's under co-conservatorship. Right now her father Jamie and a lawyer share control of the singer's finance.

Van Halen is taking a month long break in their tour. The band has reportedly postponed 17 concert dates...starting up again on April 19. The group's guitarist Eddie Van Halen is apparently recovering from an illness...but there's no word on what that is. The tour promoter says he's currently being treated by doctors and undergoing medical tests. Rescheduled dates will be announced soon.

George Clooney is not official taken yet. The actor is rejecting rumors that he's engaged to his girlfriend Sarah Larson. People started talking when Clooney brought Larson to the Oscars with him...she's apparently the first girlfriend he's ever taken down the red carpet at the Awards. The actor was married from 1989 to 1993 and has since vowed before to never get married.

Angelina Jolie may give birth in France. E! Online reports the actress and Brad Pitt are planning to spend the summer in the south of France for the delivery. It wouldn't be the first time they hit the road for childbirth...their daughter Shiloh was born in Namibia. The two have yet to officially announce the pregnancy but Jolie stepped out at the Spirit Awards last month, showing off an obvious baby bump.

That's all for now. Tune in tomorrow for another update. Thanks for watching.
