It won't be for a lack of talent, but Allison Iraheta isn't gonna win this season of American Idol.

Perhaps the 16 year-old crooner would have had a chance in past years, but she's up against the incredible juggernaut that is Adam Lambert now. Everyone else on the show is simply singing for second place.

Allison Iraheta, American Idol

Fortunately for Iraheta, she's already experienced a winning sensation.

According to reports, the young talent laid claim to the top prize of a 2007 competition, Telemundo's Quinceañera: Mama Quiero Ser Artista (translation: Sweet Fifteen: Mom, I Want to be an Artist).

Allison pocketed a $50,000 cash prize and a recording contract for her victory, though she was not attached to any record label when she auditioned for Idol.

Still, does this taint the singer in any way? Should she have been allowed to compete on the Fox show?

Is Ben Holz dating Lindsay Lohan?

The 36-year old computer geek isn't shooting down this latest rumor. Here's how it got started:

Holz, as pictured below, was spotted splashing around with Lindsay during her vacation in Hawaii this week. When Radar Online asked the entrepreneur - who runs a Web-based tech company called PeekEez.com - if he was dabbling in the Firecrotch, he laughed and replied:

“I’d prefer not to say anything about the situation."

That's far from a denial!

In this photo, Ben Holz is all wet and staring at Lindsay Lohan. According to reports, behind closed doors, she's the one that becomes all wet when staring at Holz... if you know what we mean!

Holz is a Carnegie Mellon alum. He resides in Seattle and has owned a couple of internet cafes in Hawaii.

He was also spotted alongside Ali Lohan during the family's trip to the tropics. We can only pray he didn't make a move on her, too. We know she looks old, Ben, but the girl is only 15!

Julianne Hough is taking her beauty - and, likely, millions of male viewers - away from Dancing with the Stars next season.

“I’m not doing next season,” Hough told Access Hollywood, following her and Chuck Wicks' elimination this week. “I’m gonna take one off."

The decision is not based on any complaints about the show (Hough even said she and her real-life boyfriend "went further than anticipated"), but rather on a burgeoning country music career.

The aspiring singer has booked tour dates throughout the summer. She'll next perform in Hidalgo, Texas on May 9.

In related news, the entire staff of The Hollywood Gossip has just booked hotel rooms in Hidalgo, Texas for May 9.

Julianne Hough is one of the World's Most Beautiful People. This is not surprising news.

The friendship between Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale didn't end when the High School Musical cameras stopped rolling.

These two cuties still hang out together, as evidenced by this week's LG Rumorous Night party, held at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.

Each actress is busy these days.

Tisdale's new album, Guilty Pleasure, will be released on June 16. She's also working on re-shooting parts of her upcoming movie, Aliens in the Attic.

Hudgens, meanwhile, fills her days by staring into the eyes, and settling into the arms, of Zac Efron. It's a tough gig, but someone has to do it.

It would be one thing if Jennifer Love Hewitt was simply dating dorky actor Jamie Kennedy.

But must these two gush over their relationship every time they see a camera?!? They're starting to make Tom Cruise's couch-jumping appearance on Oprah look calm by comparison.

The latest nauseating lovefest/interview took place at this week's LG Rumor2 party. Kennedy told E! News about playing games with Hewitt's mother.

“I go over to her mom’s house to play charades,” the annoying actor said. “I’m dead serious. It’s really true.”

Kennedy added that Jennifer’s brother, Todd, gave his blessing to the relationship, as life is apparently going so well for these co-stars that they've been spending a lot of time with each other's families.

What about starting their own family someday? Kennedy wouldn't get specific (which was shocking; we figured he'd explain just how he'd take Jennifer Love Hewitt nude and knock her up), but he did praise his girlfriend's maternal instincts.

"I just think she’d be an amazing mom,” the actor said, as he held Hewitt’s hand. “She’s an amazing person.”

Seriously, Jamie, calm down. We've seen The Ghost Whisperer. It isn't that good.

Thanks to Susan Boyle and Hollie Steel, we already know that Britain's got talent.

Turns out, that country has beauty, too.

Alexa Chung Fashion

Americans will soon be inundated with an example of it, as The Alexa Chung Show is set to replace TRL and premiere on MTV in June.

The series will, aptly, be hosted by Alexa Chung, a British TV personality and former model. She's really pretty. See for yourself:

Carrie Prejean loves fame almost as much as she hates gay people.

On the Today show this morning, Miss California announced that she'll milk every second and every penny that she could from the attention she's receiving work with the National Organization for Marriage on a campaign opposing gay marriage.

"I am just here to protect marriage," said Prejean. "The National Organization for Marriage basically just respects marriages and people who support it. I am here to protect traditional marriage."

Regarding the outrage that followed her response to Perez Hilton's question during the Miss USA pageant, Prejean said:

"I never thought in a million years that this would be happening right now. I was attacked for giving my own opinion on stage. I am going to do whatever it takes to protect marriage."

Sounding like a complete and utter moron, reading a nonsensical Hallmark card, Carrie continued to say that marriage "is something that is very dear to my heart, and I am just here to protect it. That's all I am here to do."

Come on now. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. But what does that even mean? Marriage is close to her heart?!? If that's the case, perhaps Prejean should campaign against the nuptials of heterosexual couples, considering nearly 50% of them end in divorce.

Moreover, Prejean's statements cause us to wonder...

  • Why does gay marriage anger Catholics to such a degree, yet few comment on a story such as Mel Gibson's divorce? Does the Bible not say: “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:6) and “I hate divorce, says the Lord God of Israel" (Malachi 2:16a)?
  • Carrie talks continually of "protecting marriage." Can someone explain how a gay couple exchanging vows threatens the union of a heterosexual couple? Must one straight marriage be dissolved in order for a gay marriage to take place?
  • If Prejean had not been asked her stance on gay marriage during the Miss USA pageant, would she still embark on a campaign against it? In other words: is this truly an issue close to her heart, or just an opportunity to extend her 15 minutes of fame for as long as possible?

Let us know your responses to these questions and overall thoughts on Carrie Prejean. We welcome all comments!

Ali Lohan is just 15 years old.

We feel the need to remind readers of this fact after the aspiring celebrity was photographed in Hawaii this week, straddling a surfboard, flaunting her cleavage and smiling for the paparazzi.

Ali likely earned a bonus on her allowance from attention-starved mother Dina for this one. She's clearly taught her youngest daughter well.

Ali Lohan cannot legally drive, drink or vote. But, hey, you're never too young to shake your breasts at a photographer!

We know what you're thinking, ladies: You'd make sweet, passionate love to Zac Efron even if he was bald or rocked a mohawk.

We understand. We've seen those eyes, too.

Still, when the actor showed up for an international premiere of 17 Again this week sporting a new, slicked-back hairstyle, he must have known it would be critiqued.

Did Vanessa Hudgens see him leave the house with this look? Who let him ditch his shaggy locks in order to make like a character in Grease? Weigh in on the style below.

Do you like Zac Efron's slicked-back hair?
