Morning Briefing:
Suri watch continues: With the mysteries of Suri Cruise's birth certificate still being puzzled out, Us Weekly reports that Katie Holmes has been spotted in Telluride, Colo., where she assures the world that "Suri's doing great!" The mag also claims some locals have seen Suri, one saying she's "funny looking." The Us Online counter says it has been over 85 days since Suri's birth with still no public sign of her, but as the Associated Press notes, Tom Cruise didn't allow his adopted kids to be photographed until they were older -- Connor Anthony was a year old and Isabella Jane was 3 when they were first publicly photographed.

Lindsay's Disneyland adventure? As just one of the many parties thrown in honor of Lindsay Lohan's 20th birthday last week, the no-longer-teenage starlet was invited by Disney to have a special after-hours tour of both Disneyland and the California Adventure park in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday. As soon as Lohan arrived with a limo full of friends, though, the Disney P.R. people began rethinking the wisdom of the plan. The Disney-obsessed blog Mice Age reports that Lohan and her posse were a rowdy bunch, stumbling from ride to ride. "The [Disney employees] operating the attractions for the small group also noticed a certain smell in the air, but their supervisors insisted that they continue to operate the attractions for the group," the blog writes. "Between the obvious smell, rude behavior and the snotty attitude the entire party displayed, there were very few Lindsay Lohan fans working at Disneyland by the end of that night."

Stars on bikes: It's a weird yet somehow fitting tableau -- Matthew McConaughey and Jake Gyllenhaal out doing some bicycling with Tour de France legend Lance Armstrong in Malibu, Calif. (click on the link for photos). Scroll down to the shot of McConaughey and Armstrong buying wine together for proof that not even People's "Sexiest Man Alive" can avoid looking dorky wearing Lycra. Meanwhile in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Zach Braff has been doing some biking of his own. A source tells Perez Hilton: "[I] was running into Zach Braff when in Amsterdam last weekend too in various situations -- posing in front of a cafe, holding up various flea market finds, cycling over a bridge with a very pretty Dutch maid in tow. In fact we were pretty much plagued by him." (Us Online, Perez Hilton)
