LOS ANGELES – Shakira has proven she has a huge heart in addition to her huge hits by putting her personals up for auction on eBay.
The megastar already has sold off her custom-made Roberto Cavalli bra, the Carolina Herrera dress she donned at the Grammys, her entire wardrobe from the sold-out "Oral Fixation" world tour, outfits she posed in for her album covers and tickets to get up close and personal over dinner in Toronto.
And Pop Tarts also has been told the "Hips Don't Lie" hottie has just thrown in her own personal jewelry collection and the two signed guitars she strummed with on her tour.
But this isn't to boost Shakira's already bountiful bank balance — the auction is all in the name of giving back to her homeland.
The itty bitty beauty is donating 100 percent of the proceeds raised in purging her personals to Colombian-based charity the Pies Descalzos Foundation, which assists needy children in escaping poverty.
'Producer' Paris Hilton's Parents Think She Could Play Ugly
Paris Hilton looked every inch the party princess at "The Hottie and the Nottie" premiere, dressed up with diamonds and a pink couture dress.
However, it turns out that her folks, Rick and Kathy Hilton, think their glamorous little girl could definitely be a "Nottie" rather than a "Hottie."
"Paris doesn't take herself too seriously — she knows how to have fun, so she could definitely play the ugly role," Rick told Pop Tarts.
However, the heiress (who also is the executive producer of the flick) didn't seem to agree.
"I don’t know if I could ever play the Nottie. I don’t know if I could be able to go through that hair and makeup every day looking like that, but I love this role," Paris said.
Hilton plays a sexually frustrated but sexy siren who won't go out with guys until her hideously unattractive best friend (Christine Lakin) finds herself "someone special."
Surprisingly, Paris' performance is actually the highlight of the movie, although director Tom Putnam can't exactly remember why she was cast.
"The agency I met ... ah, that's a good question," he said. "I used to know why I did this — time has passed."
But the former "Simple Life" star was definitely using her night to shine. After popping over to the premiere (oh, a good 40 minutes after the screening was supposed to have started and after the DJ had played her song "Stars Are Blind" at least 15 times), Hilton struck her signature pose as she strutted down the carpet (twice).
Despite the lateness, business-minded Hilton had to take a break to check her BlackBerry before finishing the press line.
But even at the post-premiere party at hotspot The Green Door, the perennial party girl was on her best behavior as she boogied with her proud parents in the VIP section while friend Adrian Grenier had to hang with the commoners down below. Although we wouldn't exactly say Grenier was upset, as the "Entourage" star was getting friendly with a posse of very pretty young ladies on the dance floor.
Natasha Bedingfield Scares Men; Enrique Iglesias Grammy-Bitter?
Natasha Bedingfield may not have scored a Grammy nomination this year, but the British babe has been out and about performing and partying at numerous Grammy gigs this past week.
Last year, Bedingfield had a hit across Australia, the U.K. and Europe with the slamming song "I Want to Have Your Babies," in which she croons that she wants to "get serious like crazy" and "see 'em springing like daises."
However, has her decision not to release the single in the States been based on the fact that she's scared the boys away?
"I think it is good to write and sing about things that the other people are afraid to," Natasha told Pop Tarts at the Grammy Foundation's Preservation Project Concert on Wednesday evening. "But, yes, perhaps I did scare some men away."
But someone else who was also snubbed by the Grammys this year (but isn't taking it quite so spiritedly) is Enrique Iglesias.
Pop Tarts caught up with Iglesias on Wednesday to talk about his song on the new "Step Up 2 The Streets" soundtrack. When asked if he would be at Sunday's big event, the response was rather raw.
"No, no," he said quickly. "No way."
