Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart would have turned 254 years old today if he were alive.

The Austrian composer is responsible for over 600 pieces and is often cited as an archetypal example of the Classical style of music.

As Mozart's career went on, he grew to specialize in chromatic harmony that was rare for his era. In 1769, he was honored as the concertmaster of the archbishop and was knighted by the pope in Rome. Not even Taylor Swift has accomplished those achievements!

A father of six, Mozart wrote one of his masterpieces, "Die Zauberflöte," in the last year of his life. He passed away from mercury poisoning (look out, Jeremy Piven!) while being treated for syphilis.

Send in your posthumous birthday wishes today!

In other celebrity birthday news, Lil John turns 39 and British model Daisy Lowe is 21 today.

Soon after the calendar turned to 2010, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves welcomed their second child into the world. It should be a time for celebration, right?

Wrong, says Camila's mother.

According to unreliable sources at The National Enquirer, Multo Abrigado is pressuring Alves to force the actor into marriage or a financial arrangement that will guarantee the future well-being of her kids.

"Camila's mother is very traditional, and she's worried that since they are not married, Matthew could leave her daughter high and dry with two kids if he falls out of love with her," a source said, making the first ever comparison between McConaughey and Levi Johnston.

  • Sweaty and Sexy
  • Camila and Levi

How did the often-shirtless hunk react when Alves followed through on her mother's advice? He "exploded," the insider claims:

"He said, 'I'll always take care of our babies - and you!'"

Since becoming a mother, Alves has put her modeling career on hold. Little Levi McConaughey is 18 months old, while daughter Vida was born on January 3.

While Camila doesn't know what to do next, her mother won't take her eye off the fiscal ball. Concludes the anonymous source:

"Now Multo is pressuring Cam to get Matthew to commit to a legal agreement. She said, 'He wanted you to carry his babies - he ought to take real responsibility.'"

He also ought to take that shirt off in the photo above. Come on, Matthew!

Finally, The Hollywood Gossip can respond to the thousands of daily letters we receive asking about Brooke Hogan's dating status:

The ultra talented singer is single.

Her rep has written in to Life & Style and confirmed Brooke's relationship with aspiring rapper Yannique Barker (aka. Stack$) is over.

"Brooke Hogan and Stack$ have split but remain friends. He was a big part of her life for a very long time, and she still cares about him and his family dearly. Brooke would like to thank her fans for their kind words and sensitivity during the breakup," the rep said.

The two got together last spring, as they were spotted strolling in Miami Beach. Stack$ also played a role on Brooke's reality show Brooke Knows Best, which, incredibly, has yet to be picked up for a new season.

May the best, most desperate man now win Hogan's affection. Good luck, everyone!

On Glee, Jane Lynch portrays Sue Sylvester, one of the funniest characters in TV history.

Alas, the sarcastic cheerleader coach is also one of the loneliest, as her attitude and drive to win doesn't exactly appeal to potential mates.

Fortunately for the actress, however, life does not imitate art: Lynch is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, psychologist Lara Embry. The couple is planning a May wedding

Lynch has other professional reasons to celebrate these days, as well:

She earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role on the series; while Glee won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy.

He was the first overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, but missed his entire rookie campaign due to an injury and was sidelined again for this year with a knee injury in December.

So, what's a bored NBA seven-footer gonna do with his free time but take naked photos of himself on Twitter?

Oden might be a professional star, but he looks to be playing in the bush leagues below... if you know what we mean!

This is getting ridiculous, Amber Rose.

What began as a quirky movement against PETA has transitioned into something truly horrible: a run on fashion so abysmal that it's giving Lady GaGa a run for her outlandish money.

Kylie Jenner Fashion

Yesterday, Kanye West's girlfriend was spotted in some sort of skinsuit that can only be described as... some sort of skinsuit.

Today, as her and her man continue to tour Paris Fashion Week, Rose donned an outfit that - to quote Kanye - was anything but the best of all-time. Take a look:

Seriously, Amber, leave the goofy fashion to GaGa. What are you gonna steal next from her, a rumored penis?

There are many reasons why fans have flocked to the HBO drama True Blood: violence, action, suspense, a solid cast.

But there's another not-so-hidden secret about the show that has viewers buzzing: nudity. Lots and lots of nudity.

  • Sam Trammell Photo
  • Aussie Hottie

We're not just talking T&A, either. Alexander Skarsgard and the men of True Blood gets plenty nude on an almost-weekly basis.

But that Swedish hunk won't be the only actor to shed his clothing on season three, which premieres in June. Consider these True Blood spoilers, but Ryan Kwanten and Sam Trammell have gone on record with upcoming birthday suit scenes for their characters, as well.

“We joke about who has the record for the most disrobes,” said Trammell (Sam Merlot). “I think Ryan does. But I’m close behind him at this point because I’ve already disrobed like four or five times this year and I don’t think he has at all. I’ve got to fight that out with him."

How does Kwanten (above, right) handle the nudity?

"I sort of hide behind the guise that I am playing a character... Personally, I’m quite restrained and almost introverted. But as Mr. Stackhouse, I can’t afford to have any of those sensitivities.”

And women everywhere are grateful for that. Study the topless hunks and respond below: Who would you rather...
