Remember Iggy Pop?

Well, he's back from wherever the hell he's been and promoting a new album. And while he's at it he'd like to take this opportunity to clear up a rumor that has apparently been dogging him since before some of us were born: He never, ever had sex with David Bowie or Mick Jagger, he tells Germany's Der Spiegel magazine. Not even once. Not even when no one was looking. Not even real quick-like.

Which doesn't mean he doesn't admire Jagger's prowess in the sack. "The one thing that I am jealous of Mick for are the young things he always hangs out with," the wrinkly rocker says. "Just how does he do it?"

The way Pop figures it, the Rolling Stone's got nothing he doesn't have, and yet he manages to boff women like Luciana Morad. "I mean he is older than me, and my arse is still really tight," Pop points out. "I would have happily got that Brazilian model pregnant."

As for Bowie, well, he has a thing or two to say about that "arsehole," too.

"Bowie and I met up at a TV show recently," Pop tells the magazine. "Bowie clapped me on the shoulder and asked me if I was still alive. He is still an arsehole, but a damned nice one."

Not that it matters, Iggy, but if you really want to put the kibosh on that rumor, you might want to stay away from the damned nice arsehole comments.

Sympathy from the devil?

"I feel sorry for the girls, I feel sorry for the Bushes. I think they should just leave them alone and let them solve their own problems."

-- Nancy Reagan abandoning that whole "Just Say No" stance and reaching out to the Bush twins in a chat with Diane Sawyer on ABC's "PrimeTime Thursday."

Feet of Flames, legs of gold

If you were to tell Michael Flatley to break a leg, he might be a little more inclined to oblige these days.

The "Riverdance" clomper has just insured his gams for a cool 50 million clams.

"Everybody was afraid that if I stopped dancing, the tour wouldn't go on, and if the tour doesn't go on a lot of people would be out of work, and I would stand to lose a great deal of money myself," Flatley told AP Radio this week.

Not that he's too worried. "Whatever is going to happen is going to happen," he said of potential leg-related calamities. "It's a matter of fate."

Don't let Tonya Harding hear you say that.

He likes himself, he really likes himself

"You know, I don't want to come off cocky or arrogant, but I'm gonna really [work hard] to be the best actor that I can be and I gotta set my goals and my dreams high. And then we can play this [interview] back the night when I win my first one. And we can just be like, I really worked hard for it."

-- Sean "P. Doodle" Combs on how he expects to win his first Oscar for his work on Jon Favreau's "Made," on "Access Hollywood."

Juicy bits

Love, exciting and old ... Twenty-eight years after they first fell for each other, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles finally took the plunge and gave each other a public peck. The kiss occurred in London at an anniversary dinner for the National Osteoporosis Society, with which Bowles is involved. It's sorta sweet and sorta sad -- and you can just keep your tired old tampon jokes to yourself, thank you.

In younger love news ... Steffi Graf is said to be wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger, sparking speculation that she and Andre Agassi, who have been dating for more than a year, are planning to tie the knot. Will the bride wear tennis whites?

Harry Potter's heart will go on without Celine Dion. A spokesperson for Warner Bros. insists that, despite the rumors that have been raging on the Web, Dion has definitely not been tapped to record the soundtrack to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." And let us all say ... phee-yew!
