PEOPLE ARE trying to make a big thing out of the "gag order" imposed on guests who attended the quiet, low-key wedding of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel in Italy. Oh, please, this is a common practice these days. You really can't trust anybody, especially your "pals" with cell-phone cameras. This fact is rather sad. Back in 2000 when Madonna married Guy Ritchie, not only was everybody sworn to secrecy, but not one shot of her in her wedding gown ever escaped. She was really serious about that marriage. Now she's really serious about writing songs about how they both f**ked up. (Naturally, from her point of view, he was more at fault than she. But that's human nature.) A NEW book appeared in my office the other day, Icons and Legends: The Photography of Mi ...
