Melissa Etheridge tells “Rolling Stone” that David Crosby is the father of her children through artificial insemination. So here’s a BS look at . . .
CLUES THAT DAVID CROSBY IS YOUR FATHER:
• You not only don’t like liver – you don’t HAVE a liver.
• Daddy thoughtfully taught you to roll your own soothers.
• Your unique crib toy is made from mustache trimmings.
• Both your mommies keep humming “Our house is a very very very fine house . . .”
• Birth weight — 357 lbs.

BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:
Rosie O’Donnell — who just adopted a third baby — hires male nannies so her kids will have a man’s influence (so who’s giving them a woman’s influence?) . . . Ricky Martin says he’s flattered that George Michael is sexually attracted to him, and can’t wait to “make music” with him (oh please!) . . . Soon-to-be Mrs Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, won’t be worrying over money, having just signed a multi-million-dollar deal to make up to 12 Hollywood flicks . . . “Will & Grace” star Megan Mullally claims she’s bisexual, but her friends are spreading rumors that she’s really –heterosexual (this is life in the new millennium) . . . Former Olympic gold medal figure skater Katarina Witt will appear as a villain on Pamela Anderson’s syndicated jiggle show “VIP” (she’ll attempt to annihilate the VIP agency with a series of triple axles.)

TODAY’S VIDEO RELEASES:
Bridget Fonda and Bill Pullman star in “Lake Placid”, a fright flick about a giant crocodile in a Maine lake written by “Ally McBeal” creator David E Kelly . . . “Mystery Men”, a send-up of superhero movies, features Ben Stiller and a cast of wackos with unusual powers — like ‘amazingly accurate fork-flinging’ and ‘methane blasting’.

2. “Notting Hill”
3. “The Matrix”

WEIRD SCIENCE:
• Britain’s Leeds University is working on a device that would spot speeding cars from a spy satellite and cut off their fuel supplies. (Now if they could just develop a ray gun to zap incessantly blinking turn signals.)
• Researchers at Japan’s Kyoto University have trained a chimpanzee to remember the correct sequence of 5 random numbers and they say it remembers as well as the average preschool child. (In fact the little monkey has ripped off all the other chimps for their bananas playing  the daily number.)

“DANGER: SMOKING MAY LEAD TO STATISTICS”:
Federal Health Minister Allan Rock is preparing to force tobacco companies to feature more graphic warnings on cigarette packages, such as photos of cancerous lungs. (And a really frightening one of a hungover host on the morning after rooting through an ashtray for something smokable.)
