Country music legend is admittedly biased, but she has a message for critics of Miley Cyrus:

Give the girl a break!

In an interview with Fox News, Parton is asked about the rebukes of Miley's new image these days and says: "I've known her since she was a baby." She then takes the same stance on digs directed at Cyrus as Miley herself takes on pants:

"I hate it when people criticize her," Dolly says.

Miley and Her Bra

Parton continues to praise her "honorary goddaughter," adding: "She is a great singer; she has a great voice. She's a great little entertainer and she can speak to you like she is 50 years old."

We guess that's true. At least if 50 year-olds are known for spouting Hallmark card-like cliches about love and life.

In closing, Dolly seems to at least acknowledge that Miley's new CD has been a bust on the charts, but the singing legend takes a grander, positive view of her young pal:

"She'll land in the right place. I really know she has everything it takes. She is just trying to find her way and she will."

Those words sound eerily similar to what some people said about Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan back in the day. Let's hope Miley's path ends in a different location from that of those two trainwrecks.

Britney Spears is the subject of a new investigation following a former bodyguard's alleging that she abused her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

However, inside sources say that the troubled pop star and her management are not concerned over the claims made by Fernando Flores in the UK's Sun.

Flores says he told investigators that Spears beat one of her sons with a belt and fed them food they were allergic to which in turn made them violently ill.

He also claimed he had no choice but to resign from the job as a result of her “erratic” behavior (he said he was subject to Britney Spears nude come-ons).

Team BS says the child abuse allegations are ... well, BS.

Embattled Britney

“(Flores’ claims) are simply not true," says a Spears source. "There are always people around Britney, nannies and such. She is never alone with the boys."

"She would never have the opportunity to do something like that. She’s very loving of the kids. Neither she nor [manager] Larry Rudolph, are worried."

Another source, who previously worked with the starlet, agreed that Britney Spears is the target of a bitter former employee upset by the loss of his job.

“Britney may have been a little out of control sometimes but never would harm her babies, never in a million years would she hurt them,” said the insider.

Although the Department of Children and Family Services were regulars at Britney’s home years ago, she is now “totally clean” with the department.

Also, as of Wednesday, they were unaware of Flores’ request for investigation into the matter, despite the former bodyguard's claim that he told them.

Suspect as Britney Spears' parenting skills are, it's hard to give this credibility. Instead, let's focus on happier topics, like her new Candie's clothing line!

The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky may have hinted that she ends up alone after this season, but could she just be playing it coy? That's Us Weekly's theory.

The celebrity gossip publication "confirms" (term used very loosely) there's a proposal on the season finale - and the gorgeous Massachusetts native accepts!

For all we know, it's a proposal by Chris Harrison to join him for a glass of water during a five-minute break from filming - but congratulations in any case!

"She's already thinking about the details," a source says - and she's SO excited! "She did the show because she was ready to settle down and get married."

Us claims the former Facebook ad rep is planning a West Coast wedding in early 2011. Who's the lucky guy? The anonymous sources aren't saying, natch.

Gorgeous Bachelorette

Is Ali Fedotowsky really engaged - and to whom?

Unlike that stiff Jake Pavelka, who gushed about being engaged throughout the season, Ali's remarks have been of the "I'm happy with my decision" variety.

Some believe that's code for "I'm still single."

Reports that Ali Fedotowsky is already dating some other guy (Patrick Hammon) also cast doubt on any Bachelorette engagement stories, don't you think?

We're obviously not in the know as far as the specifics, but our gut reaction is to call BS on this story. There are only vague details and no sourced quotes.

For more on who Ali chooses, check out The Bachelorette spoilers ... but don't say we didn't warn you, these are serious giveaways, read at your own risk.

Team Edward or Team Jacob?

It's no longer a question reserved for Twihards, or pop culture followers in general. Supreme Court Justice nominee Elena Kagan was actually asked which side she's on during confirmation hearings this week.

On a Mall Tour

But forget future judges. On which end of this debate do Jersey Shore stars and country singers fall? A handful of celebrities were asked to pledge their allegiance to Edward or Jacob this week and replied with the following:

Snooki: I’m Team Edward just because he’s very sexy, but then again, I’m Team Jacob because he has potential guido status.

The Situation: I don’t think I’m on any team on that one because I like women. But on the other hand, I am fans of them both, I think they’re both great actors.

Julianne Hough: I’m in love with Edward.

Martina McBride: Well, Edward’s really cute, I think he’s very romantic, but I think probably Jacob is a healthier relationship. He seems to care. He’s not as obsessive. It’s a little more well-rounded.

Brooklyn Decker: I’m Team Bella. I’m always rooting for her. I think she’s the atypical heroine, and a lot of people relate to that.

Cheyenne Kimball: I’m totally Team Edward. I used to read the books when I was 17, and I wanted so badly to meet a vampire named Edward and fall in love.

Rachel Reinart: I’m Team Vampire Diaries. I don’t watch Twilight. I have a huge crush on both of the dudes. They’re hot.

Serena Williams: I’m obsessed with Robert Pattinson.

Interesting. But enough from these celebs. Let's hear from THG readers. Which team are YOU on?

As we reported yesterday, a set of photos taken by Nick Knight for Japan's "Vogue Hommes" feature a (presumably) male model by the name of Jo Calderone.

A significant number of sources claim, however, that "Jo" is actually Lady Gaga's alter ego, and that the "Poker Face" singer went incognito for the photo shoot.

Seriously, people think this guy is her.

The only definitive connection between the two is stylist Nicola Formicetti, but some Gaga fans remain adamant. "I'd put money on it," said one observer.

Think it's her? Check him/her out ...

Is this Vogue Japan model actually Lady Gaga in drag?

"The nose gives it away to start. Then the eyes, then the girly mouth." The apparent lack of Adam's apple would be another clue, THG readers have opined.

Other evidence and theories circulating online:

  • The mystery model's first name, Jo, corresponds with Gaga's middle name, Joanne (her birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).
  • ABC News points out that "Jo Calderone" is an anagram of "Alejandro" ... with an extra c and o. Brilliant detective work there, ABC News.
  • Last year's Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors not only failed to rankle the star - she seemed to embrace, even feed into that bit of gossip.

What do you think? Is it her? Vote below ...

Will Jake Pavelka be showing us what he never showed Vienna Girardi or his previous ex? Yes ... if Daniel Nardicio, V.P. of marketing at Playgirl, gets his way.

The magazine has extended Jake an offer, he says.

Jake hasn't commented on this yet, but Nardico says "We're determining the value of a shoot with Jake, who exemplifies our classic American guy at Playgirl."

"Most people realize that reality show fame is fleeting and largely a dead end for actors, so this is a way to extend that fame, and make a nice profit off of it."

"It's obvious he likes the limelight, and I intuit that he looks good naked," adds Nardicio of Pavelka, who's going through a nasty breakup with Vienna Girardi.

However unfounded they may be, the recent slew of rumors that Jake Pavelka is gay can only help enhance his appeal to this particular magazine's readership.

What would the publication pay for the Pavelka package? Nardicio says Jake will receive "definitely six figures, but where in that range I am still determining."

How does one go about determining that?

"I have a large number of factors that I add together to figure out a model's worth," says Nardicio. "I guess like a c*** calculator." Words fail us at this time.

Brought on to revamp Playgirl, Nardicio did so in a big way with the recent Levi Johnston and Ronnie Kroell issues, both of which have been huge sellers.

His next subject: Skid Row musician and Celebrity Rehab cast member Phil Varone. "He's a man among men where it counts, if you get my drift," Nardicio says.

Wait ... we don't follow.

Apparently bored of conjuring up rumors about Bragenlina and Robsten, a pair of international tabloids have set their sights on Megan Fox.

In their latest issues, New Weekly and Famous - the same random magazines that claimed Brad and Angelina were finished last week - both made the following assertion: Fox has undergone plastic surgery.

While such an admission by Kim Kardashian is hardly news, this is the first time anyone has alleged Fox's ridiculous beauty is anything but natural. Study the supposed before-and-after cover photos below and come to your own conclusion:

A Foxy Cover

The actress married long-time boyfriend Brian Austin Green on June 24 and likely couldn't care less what Famous reports about her.

Still, we're curious: Do you think Megan Fox has undergone plastic sugery?

Taylor Swift must really love milk.

For the second time in a couple years, this young singer has endorsed the product, clearly believing it does a body good.

Swift says she’s “always seen the ads in the magazines and thought, ‘if that could be me, I would be so lucky!’”

Consider yourself fortunate in this case, Taylor. Now you'll have to excuse us. We need to go drink some milk...

While the relationship between Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest is receiving most of the gossip world's attention, the former's brother has landed himself a beauty comparable to his sibling.

Derek is dating British bombshell Cheryl Cole.

Due to this connection, insiders say those close to Cole are pushing for her to join Dancing with the Stars in the near future. What better way to raise her American profile?

"Her U.S. team thinks it will be a great move for her and increase her profile stateside," a source told MTV. "Partnering her with Derek would be a masterstroke and they want her to give it serious thought."

We'd also like to give serious thought... to Cole naked!

Derek Hough Picture

Hough is the reigning Dancing with the Stars champion. He brought the trophy home last season with Nicole Scherzinger.

ABC has not yet announced a premiere date for the next edition of this competition. Would you wanna see Cole on it?
