PEOPLE's Most Beautiful

PEOPLE has just named their 100 Most Beautiful people.

And who is the lovely lady topping the list and gracing the cover?

"I was a tomboy. I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on that always came back in the house filthy with scrapes and bruises. But I was always very girly. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed." - Kate Hudson (Love her!)

A few others that made the mag's coveted cut:

Borat's leading lady Isla Fisher

Samantha Who's Christina Applegate

Country girl Carrie Underwood

High schooler Vanessa Hudgens

One of PEOPLE's Most Beautiful couples, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker. Tony says he likes his wife "best in jeans, a T-shirt and Hugs." Eva's translation, "He means Uggs." Ha, how cute!

The cast of Gossip Girl (duh)

Annie's Side Of The Story

“I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted. Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together, and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful.” - Annie Leibovitz

Miley Apologizes

Due to recent photos that have found its way across the web as well as her sudden embarrassment over her recent semi-topless photo shoot (Billy Ray and mom Tish were in attendance as well as other Miley family members/supporters) for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, teen queen Miley Cyrus has issued this statement to PEOPLE:

"My goal in my music and my acting is always to make people happy. For Vanity Fair, I was so honored and thrilled to work with Annie [Leibovitz]. I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed."

I don't know, but if she was going to feel this much remorse over the whole situation, maybe she shouldn't have done it in the first place, but that's just me...Becoming a star has its price.

Benji's In!

"He's the perfect example of 'don't judge a book by its cover.' He's polite, well-mannered - even calls me sir! We love him like family already. Benji doesn't drink, doesn't smoke and is a healthy vegan!" - Rick Hilton

"He's changed her life - and I really think she's genuinely in love for the first time. He's so good to her and for her. We couldn't be happier for them. This has honestly become the real thing." - Kathy Hilton

John's New Ink

Have you seen John Mayer's new tattoo, or should I say tattoos?

Well if not, let me paint the picture for you. It's a whole sleeve!

Left Arm = Covered In Ink


I'm not quite sure about it. He just doesn't seem like the same "My Body is a Wonderland" crooner anymore. He's so edgy now.

Although the sweatshirt is hiding his new arm art, you can kinda sorta catch a sneak preview near his wrist.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are engaged!

And yes, it's for real this time.

The couple, first outed when they were seen kissing in a NY nightclub, have been together since the fall 2006.  

Simpson made the news official with this post on Wednesday:

"We know there has been a lot of speculation recently about Pete and I, and we wanted our fans to be the first to know, because you guys are the best. Yes, we are thrilled to share that we are happily engaged. Thank you for all your support and well wishes - it means the world to us. We consider this to be a very private matter, and we wanted to be the first to tell you and to hear it straight from us." 

I love them together!

Congrats : )

Idol Goes Big And Gives Back

Although Wednesday's American Idol won't be saying goodbye to another contestant, (the results will be shown Thursday night) they will be airing their Idol Gives Back show for the second year in a row. The fundraiser will be raising money for both U.S. and international charities and will feature big stars like Brad Pitt, Hollywood it-couple David and Victoria Beckham, Miley Cyrus, and former Idol winners Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks. I recommend having a box of kleenex handy as the show will also include heartfelt stories informing people firsthand on how this special will be making a difference in the lives of many.  

Randy Jackson goes from judge to performer.

Former Idol winner and country superstar Carrie Underwood shares a laugh with Teri Hatcher.

Brad Pitt shows his giving heart and waves to his adoring, not to mention screaming, fans.

Fergie, in skin-tight leather pants, cartwheeled across the stage during her performance, squashing all pregnancy rumors.

Celine Dion visits a South African orphanage.

Teen idol Miley Cyrus visits with a young girl in Kentucky, showing her support to the charity organization Save the Children. 

Paula Abdul puts a smile on a young boy's face as she spends time at Goshen Elementary School in California.

Girl-next-door actress Reese Witherspoon reads to a class at New Orleans CDF Freedom School.

No stranger to charity work, U2 frontman Bono visits with a volunteer in Tanzania.

Beyonce and Jay-Z Are Married

After rumors and speculation, Jay-Z and Beyonce have tied the knot. While there's no official confirmation, sources have reported that the twosome wed in an intimate, extravagant ceremony in Tribeca, New York City. The ceremony was followed by a posh party at Jay-Z's Manhattan home. Guests included Beyonce's family, her Destiny's Child pals, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Barton Goes for a Plea Deal

Mischa Barton has accepted a plea deal in her DUI case. She will not be sentenced to jail time. The OC fashionista will have to complete a three-month alcohol education class, and pay $1700.
Barton was arrested with a DUI in Los Angeles on Dec. 27.

Texting Is The New Breakup

Country star Carrie Underwood has revealed that her and hottie Chace Crawford broke up by text message.

"We broke up over it's like 'peace out,'" she told Extra Sunday night. 

Claiming the split was mutual, Underwood had nothing bad to say about the Gossip Girl star. "I don't dislike him, so it's no big deal."

Crawford on the other hand, had a harder time. 

Sister Candace explained that her brother was upset by the breakup. "It's always hard when you lose a relationship."

And the reasoning behind the high profile split...what else, fame.

April Arrests

Two celebrity arrests and it's not even the weekend yet.

Let me break it down...

Raffaelo Follieri, aka Anne Hathaway's bf of four years, was arrested in New York today because he tried to pass a bad check. The check was for around $250,000. 

Across the water, supermodel Naomi Campbell was arrested for (surprise, surprise) assault in London's Heathrow Airport. But this time it was toward a police officer! She had already boarded the plane and was then removed by officials.

Oh boy, what a wonderful start to April.

Jessica Alba Is Having a Girl!

Star Magazine is reporting that Jessica Alba is having a baby girl! ... and that she plans to name her daughter: Honor Warren.

According to the magazine, a friend of Alba's had a charm bracelet made with that name engraved on it.

... Is Honor the best you can do Jess? We've heard weirder.


Quote/Question of the Day

"Does a girl ever get tired of being told she’s pretty? It’s when you’re told ‘You’re much prettier than you look in photos.’ How are you expected to respond? ‘That’s because you saw some sleazebag photo of me loading up my car in my gym clothes?’ Is it a compliment? You look half-human in real life? It’s a weird one.” - Cameron Diaz

(It's true though ... She really doesn't photograph that well. She looks way better up close and personal!)


Nicole Richie: Maternity Designer!

Chic new-mama, Nicole Richie, told WWD at a Balenciaga fete in Los Angeles that she'd be creating her own signature maternity line. "I wore so much Balenciaga during my pregnancy ... When my shirts got too short, I wore Joel's with a jacket on top ... My line will be about making women look and feel good at a really emotional time ... It's about showing your best self, not your tied, word-down self."
