Jerry Hall plans to be Stoned on New Years Eve - she's ushering in the new millennium with ex-hubby Mick Jagger. Jagger, 56, has accepted his former wife's invitation to ring in the New Year with her and their four kids at her new $1 million luxury pad in the South of France, London's Sunday People reports.

The family reunion at Jerry's St. Tropez beach-front retreat will come only five months after she accepted a $15 million divorce settlement from Mick. "She couldn't bear the thought of spending millennium night without Mick," a source close to Jerry told the newspaper.

And there's a new book that will cure that millennial migraine brought on by all the Y2K hoopla. "2,000 Reasons To Hate the Millennium: A 21st Century Survival Guide," edited by Josh Freed and Terry Mosher (Simon & Schuster Fireside, $11; 160 pages). The book covers everything Y2Krazy, including a brief history of the last 1,000 years and a guide to sex, culture, pets and other millitrends of the next 1,000.

Here are some highlights:
