    Mariah Carey Even Out-Divas Bill Clinton at ‘Save the Music’ FêteEvent planners for last night’s “VH1: Save the Music” benefit were so accustomed to diva Mariah Carey’s lateness that they built in an hour’s delay into their schedule. As a result, the songstress arrived right just in time, joining stars like Conan O’Brien, John Mayer, James Blunt, Jon Bon Jovi, Mya, and Quincy Jones. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be there but sent her husband instead. ““Ladies and gentlemen, I’m doing tonight what I hope I’ll be doing for all of us for the next several years,” Clinton told the crowd. “I’m just sort of standing here for Hillary.” Read more about what the stars said in our complete “Save the Music” Party Lines.

    James Taylor Crowd Knows Nothing of His WorkThere was the usual phalanx of celebs at the Ross School in East Hampton Saturday for James Taylor’s penultimate concert in the Hampton Social series — the Olsens, Richard Gere, Jimmy Buffett, Daryl Hannah, even Paul McCartney — but, as it turned out, they weren’t all necessarily there to see Sweet Baby James. “I don’t know much of his music,” James Blunt admitted to us before the show started, “but I’m looking forward to it.” So no favorite songs, then? “I’ll have to get back to you at the end of the night,” he said. Mischa Barton was equally flummoxed. “Um, I don’t know,” she admitted. “Everyone’s been asking me. I put it on my iPod before we left, but I haven’t listened.” Beth Ostrosky, there with her boyfriend, Howard Stern, was one of the few who could answer the question. “‘You’ve Got a Friend,’” she said proudly. And local gal Christie Brinkley eventually came up with an answer, too. “I sing the kids this song at night to help put them to sleep,” she said. “I don’t know what it’s called, but it goes, ‘There is a young cowboy…’ Oh, ‘Sweet Baby James,’ that’s it.” Yup. —Brett Amelkin
