Avril Lavigne Strips and Still Slams Britney Spears

Punk princess Avril Lavigne may be married now, but she still has no problem letting the world "Under Her Skin."

The 22-year-old music mogul posed topless in a short skirt and fishnets for the June cover of Blender magazine, accompanied by a "Hell Yeah, I'm Hot" headline.

Miss Lavigne was not only snapped flashing her flesh, she was also drinking whiskey and smoking a cigarette in the shots.

Despite the controversial photos, Avril is still slamming Britney Spears for promoting a poor pop-idol image.

"She has paparazzi at her house every day," Lavigne told Australian newspaper the Townsville Bulletin. "Then she does things that are crazy, so everyone talks about it."

Report: Jessica Warns John to Watch His Womanizing Ways

Jessica Simpson may enjoy "A Public Affair" from time to time, but not when it comes to her rocker-beau John Mayer flirting and flaunting in front of her fans.

The sexy songstress is said to be furious that Mayer lingered and laughed with the pretty Roberta Armani (Giorgio's niece) at last week's Costume Institute Gala, according to Australian magazine Famous.

"Jess barked in his ear and John just sighed and put his hand up to his head," an eyewitness divulged to the mag. "Later he tried to grab her hand, but it was clear she was upset with him."

Despite being "irresistible" herself, the busty blonde-turned-brunette suffers from some insecurities, even when it comes to her sister Ashlee, a pal dished.

The source splurged that John recently saw a picture of Ashlee and asked how old "Jessica" was when it was taken.

"He definitely touched a nerve," added the insider.

And while Jess may have been jumping up and down last week to make John jealous by cozying up to Mario Lopez at the Pussycat Dolls Lounge, it seems her frustrations have only flourished, as her man was reportedly unfazed.

Speaking of the younger Simpson sister, Ashlee told Cosmopolitan magazine that she plans to search for a boyfriend outside of Tinseltown.

"It's really hard for me to like Hollywood-type guys," she confessed to Cosmo. "I like guys who are relaxed and chill and who think I'm sexy no matter what I do."

When it comes to finding love, Ash also added that she likes laid-back surfer types. But for the moment, she's more than happy hitting L.A. hotspots with her friends, spending time with her sister and decorating her high-class house.

"My bedroom is super sexy," Ashlee said. "I have a big red light and a fireplace by my bed. I have no one to share my bedroom with, but when he comes along, he'll be a lucky man!"

Bringing Biel Back: Timberlake Flies Jess to the U.K. for a Date

After months of rumors regarding an on-again/off-again romance with Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake has finally shown his affection for her by flying the sexy screen star to hang with him in London.

"Justin's really into Jess and when he found out she had some free time, he asked her to join him on the U.K. leg of his tour," a Timberlake pal told the U.K.'s Daily Mirror. "They're both doing everything they can to keep their relationship low-profile, but when they're among friends they can hardly keep their hands off each other."

The couple reportedly dined in Manchester at Portuguese chicken joint Nando's with 10 other friends. The following day, Timberlake took his Hollywood hottie to watch Manchester United play West Ham in a soccer match at Old Trafford stadium.

Britney Spears Back to Wearing Panties — But Nothing Else

She may be a reformed rehabber who has revived her rhythm, but Britney Spears still can't keep her clothes on.

According to the New York Post, the bald babe stripped down at Hollywood hotspot Teddy's last Saturday night, partying in panties — just her panties.

Brit's bodyguards reportedly blocked off her VIP area, but a spy saw Spears and her party pals — jumping on couches in their underwear."

When a waiter approached the posse, the bodyguards boomed “No boys … no boys." A waitress then tended to the table, but Brit said she was sticking to Red Bull. However, the eyewitness claimed that her gal pals did all the alcohol ordering.

“Britney took shots throughout the night,” another spy told Page Six.

Lohan's New Beau Reportedly Straying

Lindsay Lohan and British bad boy Calum Best have only been dating for a few months, but it seems Best is already deceiving.

Model Sara Kova told the New York Daily News that Calum made a move on her last Friday at L.A.’s Aura nightclub — while Lohan was lounging in the other room.

"I was walking to the ladies' room when I passed him walking from the men's room. He gave me a smile,” Kova said. “Then he put his hands on my hips and turned me toward the wall, like he was a cop who was about to frisk me."

The blonde beauty also claimed that she had no idea who Cal was, and that he then grabbed her by the jaw and gave her a smooch before she broke away.

After returning from her bathroom business, Sara spotted Lohan straddling the same guy and asked herself: “What just happened here?”

However, according to Daily News insiders, the “Bobby” beauty isn’t particularly innocent herself, and was apparently caught caressing Aussie business boy Andy Valmorbida at a Hollywood hotspot just weeks ago.

Kelly Clarkson Won't Sing Lohan's Song

The spell of Lindsay Lohan isn’t only affecting multitudes of men, it is also jeopardizing the relationship between Kelly Clarkson and her record label RCA.

The former "American Idol" told MTV that her label sent her a tune off Lohan’s last album and requested that she record it.

And while she claims to have no prejudices against the “Mean Girl," Clarkson was offended as she believes the song “doesn’t sit well."

"They were just sending me stuff that was like almost insulting,” the “Breakaway” babe told MTV. “I'm like, 'You can't even find new songs? You don't want me to write my album but you're sending me hand-me-downs?' I ended up writing the entire thing with the people that I write well with."

The pop princess also added that she will never settle for being a second-hand songstress.

“I just don't like working with someone that gives you a song and is like, 'Oh, I wrote this for you,'” she said. “But you find out that they've given it to every other artist and they turned it down, you know?"

However, Clarkson also told AP Television News that the media is exaggerating reports that she and music mogul Clive Davis clashed over her upcoming CD, "My December."

Davis controls RCA Records as chairman and CEO of BMG Label Group.

Christina Ricci, Keira Knightley OK With Nude Scenes

While most Hollywood Boulevard beauties stress when it comes to shooting a sex scene, “Black Snake Moan” star Christina Ricci loves roaming in the raw even when it isn’t scripted.

“I didn’t cover up between shots because I had to get used to being like that and get into the way [my character] was thinking,” Ricci told the London Mirror. “It didn’t matter to her whether she had clothes on or not, so I needed to lose any self-conscious affectations.”

It still took some convincing, however, to prove to the director that she was sexy and sassy enough for the raunchy role.

“They didn’t even want me to audition, but I bleached my hair, auditioned and they still weren’t fully convinced,” she added. “They were worried I wasn’t going to be sexual enough, so my agents and publicist just inundated them with sexy images of me. Eventually they said, ‘OK, we’ll hire her.'"

Speaking of stars who smile when it comes to stripping, British babe Keira Knightley is another who doesn’t mind baring her bod. The actress is currently filming steamy sex scenes with Sienna Miller in the epic “The Best Time of Our Lives."

“I think soon people are going to insist I keep my clothes on,” Knightley told Total Film Magazine. “I wouldn't do anything I didn't feel completely comfortable with. I suppose I'm very European in my attitude to my body. I'm an actress. I have certain tools. One of them is my body. I don't mind stripping off occasionally."

However, being a Hollywood hottie and jousting with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in “Pirates of the Caribbean” has its downside too.

"Women look at me as if they want to kill me,” Keira whined. “And then when they don't kill me, they say through gritted teeth, 'Lucky you.'"

Dear Paris, No Love, Candy

Candy Spelling has some words of wisdom for pending prisoner Paris Hilton, telling her to take responsibility for her wayward ways.

“The last week has not only been an obvious roller coaster for you emotionally, but your strategy went from blaming employees and stating silly excuses like, 'I don't read,' to your new lawyer's tactic to have you sound mature and take some responsibility,” Spelling wrote.

“In between, the paparazzi continue to follow you shopping and taking self-defense classes (to protect yourself in jail?), and some overzealous friends staged embarrassing protests (three people?), and wasted taxpayer funds with a petition to pardon you.”

Candy also tells the spoiled socialite that it’s about time she stopped living such a “Simple Life” and went from reel world to the real world.

“As the real possibility of jail approaches — whether it's 21 days or 45 or whatever the latest report is — it's time to get real,” she added. “I am sorry you have been sentenced to jail. I can't think of too much that would be worse.

"But since you let this happen, use the next couple of weeks preparing not only by publicly learning to fight (not a good message to fellow inmates), but by looking around, realizing that you are not as truly entitled as your money implies," she continued. "You are a young woman who can add more to her community than establishing new definitions for infamy.”

Well, the Hollywood heiress can be excepting a whole lot more mail when she is pushed into prison next month. After all, the only cell she’ll be exposed too is the little one she’ll be living in.

Ugly Betty a Billion-Dollar Babe

Well, almost. Despite sporting a metal mouth on-screen, “Ugly Betty” beauty America Ferrera has had her stunning smile insured for $10 million by Lloyds of London.

Aquafresh White Trays (a teeth whitening manufacturer) took out the policy and is currently working with the pearly princess for a U.S. charity that campaigns for free dental campaign for jobless women.

Cameron Diaz Says Last Couple of Years Were 'Hell'

A bitter break-up with Justin Timberlake on top of Tinseltown troubles has taken its toll on Cameron Diaz, but she is finally learning to overcome the heartaches of Hollywood.

“The last couple of years were hell. I can't even tell you, it was so hard,” the blue-eyed babe told Movies.com. “I didn't know how to handle it. But I think I'm in a much better place now, because I stepped away for a second and took a breath. Hollywood is a funny place. It offers so much, but it can also take a lot away from you.”

Being a beautiful blonde on Hollywood Boulevard doesn’t necessarily make things easier, and Diaz is fed up with people who think she’s only successful because of her looks.

“If a woman who is a successful actress weighs 300 pounds and has warts, nobody ever asks her, 'Do you think you made it because you're ugly?'” Cameron said. “So why should there be prejudice against someone who's had some success in films and looks a little better than average? It's all in my genes, so don't hold it against me.”

But last week, Diaz was a little less humble.

On the "Today" show, Meredith Vieira asked Diaz what it was like to be on the red carpet with ex-beau and "Shrek the Third" co-star Justin Timberlake — and to share a kiss (on the cheek) with him.

"We're friends, so we're OK," Diaz said. "All you want is that the person you care about to be happy ... It's like high school. We're like the popular kids. Everybody wants to know what happens to us."

Jolie Has No Plans to Wed Pitt ... but More Babies Are On the Way

Tabloids can stop speculating and the betting boards can close — it seems screen siren Angelina Jolie has silenced rumors that she is soon to officially bond with beau Brad Pitt.

"We've both been married before,” she told Readers Digest. “Our focus when we got together was family, and we are legally bound to our children. That really seems to be the most important thing."

And although Angie won't be walking in white anytime soon, she still wants to beef up the Brangelina brigade with “more biological and more adopted” children.

Insiders, however, are still stating that Brad turned to ex-wife Jennifer Aniston during a recent tough time.

"Brad needed to talk to someone who knows him, who understands him and who understands what he wants out of life," a source close to the couple told Australian Woman’s Day magazine.

"Brad and Jen were always best friends first and lovers second. Even when they decided to separate they took a romantic holiday together. So it makes sense that he would reach out to Jen while he's so low."

The Pitt pal also added that the divorced duo spent time reminiscing about their romance, and parted with a passionate embrace.

Britney Spears: From 'Overprotected' to Overexposed

Reformed rehabber Britney Spears has proven she’s still a headliner with her recent comeback shows, but perhaps she has hit the headlines themselves a little too much this year.

A recent e-poll conducted by Encino, a market research company that provides star rankings, found that 72 percent of Americans believe the bald beauty has been the most overexposed famous face so far in 2007.

This is a substantial surge for Spears, as she only scored 54 percent in the same poll five years ago.

The survey also asked participants to state whether they thought the “Toxic” songstress had talent, and only 25 percent responded affirmatively.

Following closely behind Brit was pending prisoner Paris Hilton, whose life was literally overexposed this year on the Web site parisexposed.com.

Spears’ "FedEx" Kevin Federline came in third place, while Tom Cruise, “Simple Life" star Nicole Richie and perennial partier Lindsay Lohan also made the cut.

Simon Goes Soft: Cowell Feels for Paris

Critical Simon Cowell is generally not one to offer sympathy to “American Idols," but in the case of Paris Hilton he’s offering a little love.

“The 'Idol' judges feel sorry for her,” Simon told In Touch magazine.

Fellow music man Randy Jackson also believes that the Boulevard blonde is “a good girl” who will “get it together."

While fans have been flocking California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office with “Free Paris” petitions, a rival anti-Paris petition has been set up by annoyed cyber-surfers who think the socialite should serve her sentence in lockup.

This popular petition has more than 35,000 signatures urging the governor to ensure Hilton does her time and lists a litany of car-related crimes Hilton has committed over recent years.

However, it seems unlikely that the “Governator” will take time to tend to either request.

“I have many more important things to think about," he said in a statement on Friday.

Sienna Miller Locks Lips With Mom; Pink Still Likes Ladies

Sienna Miller seems to have a very, er, cozy connection with her mother, Josephine.

The British babe went in for a front-face lip-lock last week when she greeted her mom.

“It was slightly weird,” an onlooker divulged to the Aussie magazine Famous. “Usually you don’t kiss your mom quite so passionately!”

Perhaps Sienna is preparing for her lesbian lover role with Keira Knightley in “The Best Time of Our Lives."

And while punk princess Pink may be married, she still doesn’t rule out the possibility of “Getting the Party Started” with some girl-on-girl good-times.

“I know I’ve talked a lot about the lesbian lover thing in the past, but it all depends now," she told Australia's OK! magazine. "I’m definitely a committed woman.”

“But Carey [her husband] and I always check out chicks together. And then I’ll see a hot guy and go, ‘Oh that boy is so cute’ and he just looks at me like he’s gonna hit me.”

Pink is still wild in her ways.

“I’m a tri-sexual, I’ll try anything once,” she told the mag. “I’m totally open to new experiences. Though compared to how I used to be, I’m pretty mellow these days.”

Angelina Jolie 'Livid' Over Paparazzi Shots of Her Kids in the Bath

While sexy screen star Angelina Jolie doesn’t have a problem raiding tombs, she does have a problem with the paparazzi raiding her privacy when bathing her babies.

Photogs stooped to new lows by taking pictures through a raised window shade of Jolie giving her brood a bath in her rented three-story house in Prague — where she's on location shooting the thriller "Wanted" with Morgan Freeman, Us Weekly magazine reported.

“She [Jolie] was livid,” a security source told Us. “Angelina felt so sick and so violated, she was shouting and crying and shaking.”

Adding to Jolie's troubles, her baby Shiloh isn't even a year old — but she’s already locked in a legal squabble over the use of her name on a perfume.

A motion to prevent jewelry-design and fragrance company Hors Lá Monde from calling its new cologne "Shiloh" has been filed by Jolie and the 11-month-old daughter she has with actor Brad Pitt with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, according to Life & Style magazine.

Hors Lá Monde — a business run solely by 31-year-old designer Symine Salimpour — requested the Shiloh trademark for its freshest fragrance almost a year ago, the magazine reported. Since then, the famous baby-mom duo has been granted six months to put a case together about why they object to Shiloh in a bottle.

Salimpour declined to comment to Life & Style on the case, and Jolie's spokesman couldn't be reached by the mag for comment.

But an unidentified source close to Salimpour told Life & Style that the creation of the perfume has been in the works for two years and the company didn't lift the name from the Jolie-Pitt offspring.

"The name is completely unrelated," a Salimpour insider told the mag. "Symine is citizen of both France and Israel, but she identifies strongly with her Israeli roots — it's a spiritual thing for her. Shiloh is a Hebrew name that means 'his gift.'"

Lindsay Lohan Caught in Cocaine Crisis?

Reformed rehabber Lindsay Lohan seems to have slipped down the rabbit hole again as a "pal" has posted a video of Linds purportedly snorting cocaine just days after her stint in the “Wonderland” rehabilitation facility.

Click here to see photos (note: site may contain offensive content).

The video shows Lohan arriving at 11 p.m. and roaming around the toilets before creeping inside a crammed cubicle with two friends. Lohan pulls a small bag of white powder from her jeans pocket. She dips her finger in and shoves the substance up one friend's nose before snorting some up her own.

"That night I saw her do more than 20 big lines of cocaine," a source told Britain's News of the World.

"She wasn't even trying to hide it and was blatantly doing it off table tops, keys, books and in the wardrobe, where she was hunched over with her legs crossed almost bent in half doing it off some magazine on the floor. I remember looking at her and thinking how pathetic she looked and how out of control she had become."

But that's not all. Apparently, Lohan is also battling booze.

"She carries round a water bottle to try to fool everyone into thinking she is clean but she tips out the water out and refills it with vodka and soda," the pal told the paper.

Such shocking revelations come as a Li-Lo "friend" is trying to make her aware of how troubled she truly is.

"Going to rehab was all for publicity," a pal added. "She [Lohan] wanted people to see her seeking help but it hasn't got her off the drugs at all."

A rep for Li-Lo had no comment.
