The 24-year-old country singer, who has topped DoSomething.org's most charitable celebrities list for the last two years, was again spreading her generosity this week. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia announced that the Pennsylvania native donated $50,000 to the facility for music-themed initiatives — including a music studio on wheels — that teens in treatment at CHOP's Cancer Center can utilize. The monetary donation alone deserves accolades, but, once again, Swift also proved to be generous with her time. The Grammy winner, who's currently on tour in Asia, also visited several of the patients at CHOP. Photos from her hospital visit show the star wearing her signature red lipstick and meeting with a few of the teens. In one shot, she was leaning sweetly touching heads with a young woman and another was of Swift at the bedside of another girl, signing an autograph.

CASEY KASEM'S WIFE THREW RAW HAMBURGER AT HIS DAUGHTER
Casey Kasem's wife has thrown raw hamburger at his daughter as she took away the ailing radio DJ to a hospital for treatment - a bizarre development in a long and ugly family feud over his care.Â Jean Kasem, the broadcast icon's second wife, admitted to pelting Kerri Kasem with a pound of meat as paramedics came to take away 82-year-old Kasem.

ANDY COHEN SHOPPING “I SLEPT WITH A CELEBRITY”Â REALITY SHOW ABOUT STAR HOOKUPS
Andy CohenÂ is shopping a new reality series called “I Slept With A Celebrity.” The half-hour, unscripted show would feature “two guests dishing about how their walk with fame led to a walk of shame, describing where they met, where they went and what they wore — or didn’t.” “A one-night stand is usually nothing to brag about, but what if the person you slept with is famous?” continues the pitch. “‘I Slept With A Celebrity’ delivers the juiciest gossip from people who say they got to experience the glitz and glamor of Hollywood — and then a whole lot more.” Cohen, serving as executive producer,Â and Warner Horizon Television are currently searching for a broadcast or cable network to take on the weeklyÂ series.

OPRAH WINFREY: $2 BILLION WAS “MY LIMIT” FOR THE L.A. CLIPPERS
Oprah WinfreyÂ shares the excitement she had over possibly buying the L.A. Clippers, and the disappointment she experienced after she lost out to former Microsoft CEOÂ Steve Ballmer, who’s payingÂ $2 billion for the team. Oprah was part of a group that wanted toÂ buy the Clippers afterÂ Donald SterlingÂ was forced to sell the team because of his tapedÂ racist remarks. Ultimately, though, the $2 billion price was even too high for the media mogul. Winfrey says her advisors felt the asking price wouldn’t be a smart business move for her. “We went over that number, and then we went over that number again, and by the time we got to the final number [it was no longer] a good business decision. But for me? I was doing it. You know, my lawyers were like, ‘Do you even like basketball?’ I said, Yes, I LOVE basketball! And this is gonna be so much fun!’…I thought it would be entertaining,” said Winfrey. She added, “$2 billion — OK, now that’s my limit!”
STEVEN TYLER TRIES TO SLIDE NOTE UNDER MILEY CYRUS' HOTEL DOOR
Steven Tyler tried to leave a note under Miley Cyrus’ hotel room door in Finland on Saturday. The Aerosmith rocker posted a video on Facebook (called “Room Service In Helsinki”) in which he’s seen approaching a door while saying, in an Elmer Fudd voice, “I think Miley Cyrus is here. But shh! She’s very, very sleepy.” But Tyler can’t manage to slide the paper under the door or through the side. “I can’t seem to get it in her door. Maybe I ought to bang on it,” he says. Ultimately, Tyler sticks his message in the keycard slot. Cyrus retweeted the video, but it’s not clear if she and Tyler ever met up.Â
