Miley Cyrus has catapulted to superstardom - and has already being embroiled in scandal. In Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, Disney has fresh faces waiting in the wings. These two youngsters are the subject of today's Face-Off ...

WHO IS THE NEXT MILEY CYRUS, SELENA GOMEZ OR DEMI LOVATO?

DEMI LOVATO by mischalova

Why is Demi Lovato most likely to follow in the successful footsteps of Miley Cyrus? The answer can be summed up in three words: The Jonas Brothers.

Lovato starred alongside that trio of dreamy hunks in the highly-rated Disney Channel movie, Camp Rock. A sequel is already in the works.

Cyrus has her own connection to The Jonas Brothers: a rumored fling with Nick Jonas. But - wait! - the incredible similarities between Demi and Miley don't stop there.

Each is 15 years old; each is represented by Hollywood Records; each has a parent that was a country recording artist.

But what truly makes Demi Lovato an essential Miley Cyrus clone, an artist destined to be the next teen sensation?

Her virginity.

Demi Lovato wears a purity ring around her neck, vowing never to let a man enter her sacred garden until marriage. Cyrus, similarly, attends church on a regular basis with her family and once told USA Today that faith is "the main thing."

Two talented, young stars. Each grounded in family.

Each with her legs closed and her head held high. Each on a road to super stardom about which Selena Gomez can only dream.

We honor our favorite stars' birthdays all the time at The Hollywood Gossip - but this is the first time we can remember where the celebrity has been in jail.

Following his hospitalization (accounts of why that happened vary and range from an anxiety attack to a sinus infection to being a spineless b!tch) Raffaello Follieri dined alone as he turned 30 in a dreary New York cell. Life's tough.

Raffaello Follieri can kiss the good ol' days goodbye!

The New York real estate developer â€" accused of bilking investors out of $6 million and being held on $21 million bail on charges of conspiracy, fraud and more â€" had planned to jet to his native Italy for a lavish birthday bash.

But instead of caviar and Dom Perignon on the island of Capri, he settled for jail house slop at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.

Anyway, here's a photo tribute to Raffaello Follieri, who was dumped by Anne Hathaway right before his arrest (but after two recent others) ...

Bill Murray and Jennifer Butler Murray, his estranged wife of more than a decade - have officially finalized their divorce â€" just a month after she accused the Lost in Translation star of adultery, alcohol and drug use.

The actor has been ordered to pay child support of the couple's four kids, while Jennifer Butler Murray will have custody of them at this time.

He must also pay her a lump sum of $7 million as per a prenuptial agreement that it is still valid, according to court papers.

The news comes a month after Bill Murray was accused of cheating on his wife, as well as addiction to marijuana, alcohol and sex.

To make matters worse, according to her six-page filing, Jennifer Butler Murray claimed she was abused more than once during their marriage.

One time, court documents claim, he "hit his wife in the face and then told her she was 'lucky he didn't kill her.'" Yikes, Bill!

Bill Murray's attorney said the Groundhog Day star, 57, was "deeply saddened by the breakup of his marriage. He and his wife are loving parents and they are committed to the best interests of their four children."

Amazingly, a report Star magazine turned out to be untrue.

The same celebrity gossip magazine that falsely reported a "secret vacation" that obviously did not take place between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline - running a photo from 2003 on the cover no less? Wow, we're shocked!

In any case, Kiefer Sutherland and Siobhan Bonnouvrier, his current girlfriend, are not engaged, his representative confirmed this morning.

Kiefer Sutherland, 41, is twice divorced. Siobhan Bonnouvrier, 36, is the style director of Allure magazine. We hope they're happy, engaged or not!

With approval ratings under 30 percent, George W. Bush is the political equivalent of Spencer Pratt. Only the latter is actually good at what he does.

Anyway, you'd be hard pressed to find fans of the U.S. President nowadays. Case in point: A couple of random dudes in Raleigh, N.C., who refused to acknowledge the Prez even when he personally walked right by them!

Check out the clip below from Countdown with Keith Olbermann. George W. Bush waves to the two fellas, and just in case they didn't see, or weren't sure who exactly he was, he waves to them again! Still, no response. Classic.

At The Hollywood Gossip, we bring you the latest celeb news and rumors ... but we also like to play matchmaker from time to time. Or at least try.

Previously, we suggested that Miley Cyrus and David Archuleta get together. Seems like a great pairing, doesn't it? Yeah, we think so too.

Well, tell us what you think of this couple - or who we think would be an awesome couple - Mario Lopez and The Hills' Audrina Patridge.

The recent TV Guide cover story featuring the two celebrities - and their super hot bodies! - got us thinking: they totally should date!

Audrina Patridge, Mario Lopez and others bring you celebrity diet tips in TV Guide.

In TV Guide, Mario and Audrina share celebrity diet tips for "HOT! SUMMER! BODS!" They involve very expensive personal trainers and in Audrina's case, eating one bite of tuna fish a day. Okay, just kidding about the last part.

In any case, we think they look super hot together. We know Mario doesn't have the ol' ball-and-chain Karina Smirnoff to worry about anymore - right, Meghan Cooper? No, Mario Lopez nude is there for the taking nowadays.

All we need is for Audrina to dump Tal Cooperman!

This interview is from a week ago now, but Spencer Pratt's appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman is definitely worth revisiting.

The talk show host had a field day with The Hills villain, skewering him over his hefty nightclub appearance fees, asking him what exactly he does for a living (a fair question), flat-out calling him a dope and so forth.

Your Order's Up!

Click to watch CelebTV's two-minute highlight reel of Spencer Pratt's visit to The Late Show, which also features a talk with Heidi Montag backstage:

David Letterman: "How do you think [the interview] is going so far?"
Heidi Montag: "It's going really well. Spencer's the man."
David Letterman: "For what?"

One would think that after killing people and somehow walking away a free man, O.J. Simpson would flee the U.S. for good.

Or at least lay a little bit low.

It's The Juice!

Instead, The Juice kidnaps and robs sports memorabilia dealers who have his stuff, gets arrested - and now (drum roll please) plays the victim!

We have no idea why, but Simpson was in Fargo, N.D., when he spilled his guts to Don Haney of Mighty 790 radio yesterday in a terrific rant.

O.J. Simpson in his most familiar environment - a courtroom.

After saying "I believe in juries," and stating that he believes he will get off (and we're not talking about anything Christie Prody might be involved in), O.J. Simpson maintained that his two alleged victims are actually on his side and that he's the victim of the legal system - they're prosecuting him only because of his name.

The best quote: "If I was anybody else, I wouldn't be going to court ... I've got a dollar sign on my back and a bulls eye on my front."

Pack lightly, O.J. The weather's warm where you're headed.

Brace yourselves for a stunner, celeb gossip fans - the guy who recently knocked Suge Knight the f*%k out is not exactly a law abiding fella.

The LAPD nabbed Greg Smith late Sunday night on an outstanding warrant - seems Greg forgot a court date. You know, one of his prior ones.

To make matters worse, when cops approached him, Greg Smith took off! So the thug has also been booked for resisting arrest, as well.

Greg Smith Mug Shots

Maybe it was a deliberate move on Greg Smith's part to get busted.

If he's in jail, Suge Knight (real name Marion Knight) will have a harder time exacting revenge, after all. And you know it's coming. Ask Vanilla Ice.

Chris Brown and Ciara performed onstage at the 2008 BET Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Tuesday in Los Angeles, Calif.

One wonders, looking at these photos, whether Chris Brown performed someplace else with Ciara later in the night, if you know what we mean.

Easy, Breezy

We mean Rihanna better shield her eyes. The heat from these photos alone may be hazardous to your health - and make you take a cold shower!

Chris Brown and Ciara have obvious, palpable sexual chemistry. Do you agree?
