Hilary Duff is officially part of the “Gossip Girl” cast and will start appearing in episodes next season, which premieres October 5th. As hipster Vanessa’s new NYU roomate, Olivia Burke, she is looking for a very “authentic” college experience. Personally, I like that she is set to play a character that’s closer to the way she is in real life, rather than just a new kid on the Upper East Side. She was snatched up after NBC passed on casting her in their new show “Barely Legal.” Let’s hope she gets paired up with a love interest we don’t see coming like, oh, Dan Humphrey.

Yeah, too bad it’s just The Empire State Building — unless you’re into that sorta thing like this woman. But it was all for a good cause. The pop star was chosen to light up the city skyline to commemorate the 24th Annual AIDS Walk New York. [NYC, 5/14/09] Keep reading »

Hilary Duff just unveiled her new video for her new single, “Reach Out,” and she is just dying to shed that good-girl Disney image. The single was released online this week and can be seen on her MySpace as well as various blogs who have picked it up, to display Hilary’s naughty side. I have to say that I like the costumes in the video a lot, but it still does feel awkward watching little Lizzie McGuire sing “reach out and touch me” while feeling up a hot man. Keep reading »
Hilary Duff is against the use of the word “gay” when it means “bad” or “uncool,” not homosexuality. Surprisingly, the above PSA is kind of awesome. [via Missbehave] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Amelia noticed something different about Ali Lohan’s physique, so that got me thinking about how breasts, or a lack thereof, can affect a young starlet’s rise to fame. Here’s a list of celebs whose breasts have affected their careers.
- Soleil Moon Frye is best known for her role as Punky in the television sitcom Punky Brewster. When she was 16, Soleil had breast reduction surgery, going from 36DD to 34C because she had back problems. But knowing our culture, I think she also wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and later as a director.
- To me, Raven-Symone represents a normal body size. She has curves that are proportional to her height, and she’s one of a few thick girls catering to the preteen girl demographic. But every time I watch That’s So Raven, I wonder why her breasts and the rest of her torso are always covered because it makes her look larger than she really is. Then I realized this is a technique to make Raven, 22, look more like a teenager for her roles on that show and in The Cheetah Girls movies. But choosing to cover her curves has led to a malicious debate online: Is Raven fat or all breasts?
