‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Black isn’t an obvious choice for a jersey summer dress, but if you’ve ever tried on a jersey dress, you know that black is by far the most forgiving color (I may never recover from the time I tried on a cream colored jersey dress while wearing a slightly-too-tight pair of underwear–the horror!). I love new mom Hilary Duff’s simple black dress, paired here with bold accessories, and totally want to recreate it. Get all the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »
Hilary Duff is pregnant—which is awesome. [My inner-Cathy disagrees! — Editor] However, her pregnancy might have cost her a plum role in an indie flick. Hilary had been set to play bankrobber Bonnie Parker in “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde,” a re-imagining of the classic outlaw tale. This would have been a big deal, considering that the role was played by heavy-hitter Faye Dunaway in 1967. However, the makers of the new version say they are recasting, suspiciously close to when Hilary announced that she is preggers. A source with the film said, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Ouch. [Jezebel]

Hilary Duff likes to stay up on her Twitter photo trends. Over the weekend, she tweeted a photo of herself owling. “Didn’t wanna hit carmageddon so I’m just owling all weekend!” she wrote. Good thinking. I love how her hubby, hockey stud Mike Comrie, is just staring at her like she’s crazy. [E! Online]
