Considering the fairly random people that have voiced their opinion on Miley Cyrus' recent rash of racy photos - from Bill O'Reilly to Joe Jonas - it's nice to hear from someone a bit closer to the situation for a change.

Annie Leibovitz is the woman behind the controversial Vanity Fair photograph that depicts Cyrus topless, albeit covered by a blanket; and she says the image "simple" and "beautiful."

A behind-the-scenes look at one of the Miley Cyrus topless photos from Vanity Fair. It's caused quite the uproar across entertainment news - and legitimate news - sources.

"I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted," Leibovitz said in a statement issued Monday. "Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful."

It's also inappropriate for a 15-year old Disney star. But that's something Miley's parents and handlers should have been aware of long before this scandal spiraled out of control. Unless...

... they wanted it that way. What do you think?

Oh, the irony.

Baby Mama star Amy Poehler has announced that she isn't merely expecting on the big screen; she and hilarious husband Will Arnett.

"I'm great with kids," Poehler recently told New York's Daily News. "I think I'm still a big giant kid. I understand them and usually we're the same size. I think I understand the way they look up at the world. I get it."

Ashley Alexandra Dupre, the New Jersey hooker at the center of the New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer scandal, filed a lawsuit Monday against Girls Gone Wild owner Joe Francis for exploiting her name and image for profit.

The suit seeks more than $10 million in damages.

In legal documents, Ashley Alexandra Dupre claims Girls Gone Wild reps came up to her while she was vacationing in Florida in 2003 and offered her alcohol before inducing her to expose her breasts and sign a waiver.

All while she was underage at just 17. Classy organization.

Since 2003, when this occurred, Girls Gone Wild has illegally exploited the name of Ashley Dupre - or so her lawsuit claims - as well as her picture, voice and likeness in a number of "deceptive advertising campaigns."

Joe Francis - who was willing to pay Ashley Dupre $1 million to pose naked for his videos before realizing, y'know, she already had in 2003 - had no comment.

The multi-millionaire bag of sleaze was just released from a Nevada jail last month, and continues to face federal tax evasion charges in that state.

He is currently fighting separate charges in Florida for allegedly filming underage girls in Panama City. Joe Francis has claimed that the girls in question lied about their age and that he is therefore not liable.

Ashley Dupre, who turns 23 this week, has not appeared publicly since the Eliot Spitzer scandal broke and it was revealed that she exchanges sex for money at a staggeringly high rate - thousands of dollars an hour!

Leighton Meester (an adorable Minka Kelly look-alike) plays the queen of mean, Blair Waldorf, on the CW shot Gossip Girl. Blair is known for her status as the ruler of her school's social elite - and for her discerning fashion tastes.

This one, though? What is Blair going for? Is this a sailor-inspired dress? A safari hat? Is she sailing to Africa and then embarking on a wildlife excursion? And what's with the gloves? There's a fine line between trendy and silly on Gossip Girl.

Which side does this fall under?

What do you think of this Gossip Girl fashion attempt? Can Leighton pull off the nautical dress - or are the producers trying way too hard?

Actress Minka Kelly of Friday Night Lights fame is also starring in a new movie called Speed Racer, the world premiere of which she attended at the Nokia Theatre on Saturday night in Los Angeles, California.

While she looks great in anything (or nothing, as John Mayer grossly can attest), we're not so sure about the striped dress Minka Kelly donned.

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

What do you think? We like that it's a bit low-cut (how can you not, right!) but there's something about this that says zebra to us. We love football, but don't need to see the referees at movie premieres. Right? Love it or hate it...


What are your thoughts on Minka Kelly's dress? Hit or miss?

By the cojones, no less!

What gossip fan can forget this celebrity photo classic, starring the newly-engaged and ultra-horny Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, from back in 2004. Ah, to be young, in love and grabbing your fiance's package on a hotel balcony...

After a brief courtship, Britney Spears and K-Fed married, fornicated a lot, had two kids, and called it quits about two years later. Good times.

Celebrating her single status as of late 2006, Britney embarked on an epic binge of clubbing (with no panties on most of the time), violating traffic laws, hooking up with (then quickly discarding) random boyfriends, neglecting Sean and Jayden, and being committed to the psychiatric wards of two different hospitals.

Maybe being with Kevin wasn't that bad after all...

Oh, that's Selma Blair in between them. Somehow she snuck in there. We're mostly concerned with The Hills' Lauren Conrad and aspiring actress Rumer Willis, though. Both of them added multiple inches to their hair in the past week with super-straight hair extensions. Do you dig it or not?

Well, at least in the Photoshop sense. Here's two of our favorite celebrity babies (or toddlers) superimposed on the cover of Radar magazine. Apparently, Suri Cruise and Maddox Jolie-Pitt are taking over the world ...

Maddox Jolie-Pitt and Suri Cruise really need to start dating.

Bob and Brooke

The respective spawns of Brangelina and TomKat have long been favorites of The Hollywood Gossip staff, which also appreciates bad image altering. But this looks pretty hacked even by our low, low standards.

Then again, Radar is the same publication that promotes an advice column from The Hills' Spencer Pratt, so you get what you pay for, really.

What entertainment news story could knock a semi nude Miley Cyrus photo and a possible Roger Clemens/Mindy McCready affair off the front page?

How about an engagement between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon!

Nick and Mariah

While merely a rumor at this point, the singer wore a giant, sparkling ring on her left hand during the afterparty for her new film, Tennessee, on Saturday night. Cannon remained close by her side.

The new couple held hands at the party, which followed the movie's premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Cannon's rep had no comment on the topic, but the man who once dated Kim Kardashian was asked what he liked about Carey and replied:

"Everything."

Awww, we're overcome with happiness, and nausea, for this couple already.

What made the fabulous but romantically-impaired Carmen Electra want to walk down the aisle for a third time with new fiance Rob Patterson?

"We have known each other for a long time â€" it's like we're really good best friends," Electra told Us Weekly recently in Palm Springs.

"He understands me, I understand him," she said.

So will the wedding be different from her two previous marriages to Dave Navarro and Dennis Rodman, which lasted a combined 45 minutes?

"You can't really compare people," Carmen Electra said. "This is something new and exciting, so we will see where it goes. I am very happy."

Carmen Electra wouldn't dish on how Rob Patterson popped the question.

"It's personal, but it was wonderful and sweet, I will tell you that," she said, adding that she and Rob Patterson don't have a date set yet.

"We are going to enjoy being engaged for now and just do that," she said. "It's funny because people think you are getting married tomorrow, and we just want to take our time and take things very slow."

As for rumors that Carmen Electra is pregnant?

"People always say what they want," she said. "I don't really have anything to say to that. It's silly."
