Liz, what the f? Avril is not topless. It doesn't count as "posing topless" if you can't see anything.

Perhaps Britney Spears would be less over exposed if she put on a pair of underwear while doing all of that partying.

the rumor mill was much more interesting than all those factual articles!
i thought it was ironic that the reporter of the bruce willis/playboy playmate item made sure to point out the difference in ages between bruce and the young woman. what about demi and ashton? I think there's a bit of an age difference there.

and poor minnie driver...perhaps she can shake her boyfriend blues with a bit of shopping therapy--her mission: to replace that godawful dress she's wearing in that photo.

Seriously, how weird is it when your dad dates someone your age & your stepdad isn't far off from high school either?!?

Britney Spears overexposed? What a shocker!!

The quote by R.Kelly: What the hell is he smoking? There's one huge difference between him and the people he is comparing himself to...they have never been arrested for SEXUAL ABUSE OF A CHILD!!!!!!

No, the huge difference between R. Kelly and the people he named is that they had talent. And for comparing himself to MLK, he should be slapped.

-A bald toothless woman wearing a potato sack would have made Maxim's list.

-Short and simple: R Kelly is an a@#.

-Minnie Driver: Stop dating celebrities or wannabe celebrities. Find a regular guy with a job.

- I guess it was a slow news day over at Forbes.

Okay, I recognize the fact that Maxim's Hot 100 list is compiled by - and intended for - pud-pulling punk kids. But voting Lindsay "The Rehab Princess" Lohan the hottest woman around is just a bad joke. Compared with the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Alba and Beyonce, Lindsay is a take-home party favor.

for your fyi...the bono link is askew...takes you to LL and her mom running over the photog.

R. Kelly is a legend in his own mind. Unfortunately it is apparent he has lost it.

Kids looking for roll models should keep looking. Try NFL players ... uh, never mind, scratch that.

Angelina Jolie is SO messed up. A biological child a threat? What a whack job, and poor Shiloh.

Good for Jen.

Minnie Driver is adorable and I agree -- she needs to find herself a regular guy.

Britney Spears partying pantyless again? Gee, imagine my surprise. Overexposed -- perfect!

ESPN's Mike & Mike have a "Just Shut Up" award that they allow fans to vote on every Tuesday.

Can we have some variation of that here? I vote R. Kelly should Just Shut Up.

Hey now, R. Kelly: of those four people you named, two were shot dead, one died of cancer and the fourth is now disabled with Parkinson's. So your point is...?

Posted by: Margo | May 16, 2007 3:56 PM | Report abuse

Wholeheartedly nominate R "you should be in jail" Kelly for the JUST SHUT UP!! award.

How in the heck is he going to compare himself to any of those people?
