It's official. Nick Jonas is the whole package.

He's not only a music star with boyish good looks and strong values, but he's reconnected with Miley Cyrus and is now a high school graduate - at 16.

What's not to love about this young man?

"I'm happy to announce I have graduated! Class of '09!" the youngest of the Jonas Brothers - who is home schooled - wrote on the bros' Twitter page.

"Congrats to everyone else who has also graduated this year," he said, signing off his Tweet by referring to himself as "Mr. President (Nick)."

He earned that nickname for bossing around Kevin, 21, and Joe, 19.

Diploma in hand, Nick Jonas further cements his role model status.

Let this be a lesson to all you kids out there. Stay in school and learn.

That way, by the time you burn through the tens of millions of dollars you've made as a teen pop star, you at least have your education to fall back on.

The Jonas Brothers, as fans undoubtedly know, are currently on a world tour. Their fourth album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times, hits stores this week!

Previously, we examined the fashion of Taylor Lautner and Justin Timberlake at last night's CFDA event in New York. Now, we examine a couple of city girls.

The City stars, that is. Gorgeous leading lady Whitney Port was the epitome of urban chic in a silver Luca Luca gown with criss-cross detailing on the back.

She was pushing the fashion envelope with the short shorts she wore last week, but here, she returns to classic, upscale glory. But what about her co-star?

Whitney's "social" rival supported designer David Meister in a blush strapless dress from his line. Can Olivia Palermo keep up with her style counterpart?

But the fashion statements weren't limited to the ladies.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake joined fellow William Rast designers, Marcella and Johan Lindeburg, backstage after presenting the Eleanor Lambert Award.

Who looks better, the man who sees Jessica Biel nude or the younger man who could probably go to bed with 50 million teenage girls of his choosing?

Hank Baskett is excited to be a husband and parent, even if that comes with holding his fiancee's hair back as she vomits or competing with her 83-year-old ex.

In a revealing new interview, the NFL player opens up about everything from helping his better half, Kendra Wilkinson, through her morning sickness to how involved her ex-boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, is going to be in their baby's life.

"She's going to be a great mom!" Hank says of Kendra. "She's reading, and I've seen more baby TV shows since she got pregnant than I have in my entire life."

"She's studying up on everything, and that's why I have to keep my game up, to keep up with her because she's constantly testing me and asking me questions."

With regard to Kendra's morning sickness, Hank Baskett, who is frequently away because of training for the upcoming season with the Philadelphia Eagles, says:

"That's one of the hardest things, to be across the country while Kendra's pregnant. I was like, 'Babe I wish I could be there to hold your hair.' I don't want her in any way shape or form to feel like she's doing this by herself."

"There have been a few times that I've held her hair."

The future Mr. and Mrs. Kendra Wilkinson are a great match.

As for how involved Hugh Hefner will be in their baby's life, Hank says:

"Hef will definitely be involved with the baby. Hef is a great man. There is more to his and Kendra's relationship than people see and actually know."

"I see it every time they're together."

We don't even want to know what that means.

Asked if he's hoping for a boy or girl, "I want a boy," Hank says without hesitation. "Someone to look out for the baby girl coming next."

Twilight star Kristen Stewart may or may not be dating Robert Pattinson.

That is up in the air. As is what the actress is trying to do with her look these days. Last week, she debuted a new hairstyle, chopping off half of her signature black locks in preparation for her role as rock star Joan Jett in The Runaways.

Now, she's going '90s grunge style on us.

Here's Kristen Stewart pumping gas and running errands in L.A. What do you think of her plaid shirt? Check out these pics and tell us in the survey below ...

Heidi and Spencer Pratt thought Today co-host Al Roker went too far Monday when asking if they were proud of her behavior on I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

Their visit sparked a war of words and a full-on Speidi-Al Roker feud.

"This weather guy was definitely out of line. He should stick to predicting cloudy days," Heidi hilariously said. "Maybe someone rained on his little parade today."

Heidi Montag complained that Roker didn't thank them after the interview and made her cry after attacking her on national TV, saying he should learn manners.

"Please do not be rude to women in the future," she chastised Al. "Please do not be rude to me. Please watch your tone, especially if you have a mother or a wife or a daughter. I don't think that they would appreciate you talking to them like that."

Fortunately for Al Roker, the gruesome twosome is ready to bury the hatchet.

"I forgive you, you don't even have to ask," Heidi said. "It's OK. The devil gets into all of us sometimes. You're forgiven. It'll be a sunny day tomorrow, Weatherman!"

For his part, Roker sort of apologized via Twitter last night.

"Heidi and Spencer Pratt are young and eventually will realize there is more to life than fame," he write. "And by putting them on, we are playing into their evil plot for world domination. For that, I apologize. Mwuh ha ha ha ha."

When Spencer learned of Roker's apology, he said he was satisfied.

"At least he understands Speidi's goals now," he said.

Dear God. How is one person simultaneously so revolting and entertaining. Follow the jump for Speidi's video statement about the incident to Us Weekly ...

Speidi, take notice. Lilo is taking desperation and attention-grabbing to new lows.

Not to mention boredom. Crazy girl really must not have much in the way of work.

As if the Lindsay Lohan crotch shot (fear the firecrotch!) while exiting a London cab two weeks ago wasn't enough, the star (term used loosely) was apparently pretty bored yesterday and posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter.

Topless Lindsay Lohan: Hot? Not? Coked up and slutty? All of the above?

This wasn't even a spontaneous thing, in which she was walking around with no shirt and decided to share it with the world. We could easily see Lindsay doing this.

No, this is an old school Lindsay Lohan topless picture, meaning she was REAL bored and scrolling through old topless pics of herself, looking to post one online.

Samantha Ronson needs to smack some sense into her wife.

In case you were wondering, this gem was taken on the set of one of the "actress'" greatest career milestones - remember the Fornarina commercial?

If you don't, boy are you in luck. We've posted it for you below. And while we still can't tell you what the hell Fornaria even is, this speaks for itself ...

Offering a second apology for the Sarah Palin controversy that has erupted over the past week, David Letterman said his joke about the Alaska Governor's daughter was a lousy joke, no matter how you cut it, and he's sincerely sorry for it.

The late night talk show host still maintained that what got people really riled is the misconception over which Palin daughter the joke was about.

On Monday's Late Show, Letterman said the risque joke about Sarah's daughter getting knocked up by Alex Rodriguez was perceived as an attack on 14-year-old Willow Palin, but was actually a reference to 18-year-old daughter Bristol Palin.

The name of the daughter wasn't mentioned in the joke, part of Letterman's monologue on last Monday's show. Nevertheless, "The joke, really, in and of itself, can't be defended," he declared. It was "a coarse joke," "a bad joke."

"But I never thought it was (about) anybody other than the older daughter, and before the show, I checked to make sure, in fact, that she is of legal age, 18."

Even so, Sarah and Todd Palin issued pointed statements last week condemning jokes about "raping" Willow and calling Letterman "despicable." Sarah Palin decried these "sexually perverted comments made by a 62-year-old male celebrity."

Last night, a more somber Letterman said, "I'm wondering, 'Well, what can I do to help people understand that I would never make a joke like this?' I've never made jokes like this, as long as we've been on the air, 30 long years."

If that's the misconception - that the joke was aimed at a 14-year-old - he understands why people are upset, he said. "I would be upset myself."

David Letterman has said from the start that he thought the daughter who was at the Yankee game was Bristol Palin. But there were no excuses last night.

"I feel I need to do the right thing and apologize for telling that joke," he said. "It's not your fault it was misunderstood, it's my fault it was misunderstood."

He apologized to both daughters, "and also to the Governor and her family and everybody else who was outraged by the joke," he said as the studio audience applauded. "I'm sorry about it, and I'll try to do better in the future."

Whose side are you on?

As we've talked about at length, Chris Brown is in the throes of a campaign to resurrect his image as his trial for felony assault and criminal threats looms.

But who is it geared towards? And is it working?

Brown Photo

According to people familiar with Brown's efforts, he hired Sitrick and Company, a crisis management firm for which he more than qualifies as a client.

The firm has been calculating every move he's made over the last six weeks. From the NBA Finals games, to the "I ain't a monster" video, to the antics with Omarion - the objective has been to make the images of Rihanna's battered face disappear.

How will this play with a jury if his case goes to trial?

Chris Brown and BFF Omarion out having fun last week.

A source says Brown has been told going clubbing could hurt his chances with a jury - it's just too flip. For the most part, he's obeyed his handlers, however, they weren't happy when Brown hit a club with the Kardashians and Bow Wow.

Basically, the PR strategy is the opposite of what many would urge - laying low until trial. They want Chris Brown out and about, resuming life within limits.

Ironically, Rihanna may actually be helping Chris Brown by resurrecting her glamorous self and getting on with her life. She is scheduled to take the stand next Monday in Brown's preliminary hearing, unless a plea deal is hashed by then.
