Chaz Bono, daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono, is in the process of becoming a man. Literally. He was a she, and he's going for the change in front of the whole world.

That takes serious ... well, you know.

With Jennifer Ella by his side, he could handle all the issues that he had to deal with during his sex change, but having to do it in the public eye was the hardest.

"Probably the first thing that was an incredible hurdle was that I wasn't going to be able to do this privately like most people," Chaz told Good Morning America.

"That took a really long time to get over."

But the longtime gay-rights activist says that the sex change or the public nature of it doesn't change his feelings about being a spokesman for the movement.

"If by being public about it other people can see this and not have to struggle about it, I'm really happy about that," the former Chastity Bono says.

"I've been an activist in the LGBT community for a long time. I think noting's changed, I'm just a little bit more focused on the 'T' now than I was on the 'L' or the 'G.' "

And now that he's faced those fears of going public?

"I needed to work through things that scared me in order to start this journey. At this point, nothing scares me," he said. "Life is just great now, just really great."

Hayden Panettiere is so cute. And young. And quite fond of trying out different hairstyles, as well as saving marine life as a hobby. Not a bad resume, really.

The whale-saving activist and Heroes star, at least until it gets canned, showed off new bangs while hosting the Whaleman Foundation benefit in Los Angeles.

For the big O, it's time to go.

During tomorrow's broadcast, Oprah Winfrey will officially announce the end of her network television talk show. Its final airdate will be September 9, 2011.

"Tomorrow, Oprah will announce live on The Oprah Winfrey Show that she has decided to end what is arguably one of the most popular, influential and enduring programs in television history," Tim Bennett, the President of Harpo productions, wrote in a statement.

Bennett sent out the letter in order to prevent affiliates from being shocked at the announcement.

"Before she speaks to her loyal viewers, we wanted to share her decision first with you - our valued partners for more than two decades," he wrote.

Of course, Winfrey is unlikely to leave television altogether.

It's been rumored for weeks that the icon will take the gabfest to her previously announced cable channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), which also launches in 2011.

Will you miss her on network TV?

In a series of recent interviews, Rihanna recalled Chris Brown's assault on her in graphic detail, describing just how haunting and terrifying that night was.

She'd never take him back, she insists (not that the court would allow him to), but she's not completely turned off by her ex - she still listens to his music.

In an interview with The Bert Show on Q100 Atlanta, Rihanna said despite their violent past, she misses Brown, and his songs remind her of good times.

"When it comes on the radio I don't frown or turn it off, I just ... listen. I like his music," she said. "I've gotten over [Chris] but there are definitely constant reminders, and a lot of that comes from listening to his songs."

Sans Chris Brown, Rihanna is all smiles these days.

As for that rumor surfacing yesterday that she's now dating Tristan Wilds, Rihanna says that's not true. So not true that "I don't even have his number."

She says the 90210 cast member did come to a house party she had, and that they hung out, but that's it. As for whether she's looking for a boyfriend?

"No ... I'm a very flirty girl, though," she said, laughing. "I don't think I have the time or the energy for a relationship. It's like another career, really."

After how her last one ended, a little time off is probably good.

Jane Carrey, daughter of Jim Carrey, walked down the aisle last weekend escorted by her actor dad as she tied the knot with musician Alex Santana.

"It was a beautiful day. Very simple and sweet," the funnyman said of the wedding in a statement. "I wish them everything that love has given us."

Carey also Twittered for joy Wednesday night: "My Jane is a married woman. Days ago her and my new son in law alex got hitched,” he wrote.

"The day was simply perfect... lots of love there.. :)"

In the spring, the star will become a grandfather as well: Jane Carrey, 22, is due to give birth to her first child in March. "I am very excited," he said in July.

"Jane is going to be a great mom."

Jane is Jim's daughter with his first wife Melissa Womer. He was later married to Lauren Holly. He and Jenny McCarthy have been together four years.

John Mayer may be a total and utter douchebag, but we can say one nice thing about him: The singer is unafraid to praise his competition.

Months ago, he (sort of creepily) gave a shout out to Demi Lovato via Twitter. Now, he's telling Access Hollywood just how awesome Taylor Swift is.

“There’s something about Taylor that she would have been a star in any decade,” Mayer said. “Taylor’s like this fresh voice.”

Swift actually shares a credit with the crooner on “Half of My Heart,” a song off Mayer's new album, "Battle Studies."

  • Mayer
  • Swift, Cute

Mayer says he's most impressed by how calm and humble Swift has remained in the face of such success.

Taylor Swift is the last person to know she’s Taylor Swift, which I think is totally sweet. It’s almost like Taylor Swift is like a character in a movie about a small town girl who has her dreams come true.

"It’s great to have someone who’s hugely talented and still is able to receive the pleasure in all moments.”

It sure is, but you best stay away from her, John! Otherwise, you'll have to answer to Taylor Lautner and his abs of steel!

The lovely Nicole Fox was pronounced the winner of America's Next Top Model last night. In other news, America's Next Top Model is still on the air!

Anyway, congratulations to the native of Louisville, Colo., who joins an illustrious group of past ANTM winners. Ridiculously successful models like ...

Lisa D'Amato Picture

... help us out here if you know one.

Nicole Fox, a self-described 18-year-old dork who is just 5′7″ (diminutive in runway standards), is thrilled with the honor but a little overwhelmed.

“Coming in, it was obvious to everyone that I didn’t have the self-confidence, the presence of all the girls out there,” the show's 13th cycle champ says.

“I never say the right things. I’ve never had a boyfriend.”

If Nicole Fox was in over her head, she didn't show it. Time and again, she proved that her look and instincts were spot-on, winning several of the show's challenges.

“It seemed like the judges saw me being able to do [high] fashion as well as commercial modeling,” she said. “But beyond that, I suspect that Tyra Banks and the judges knew a lot of girls out there could relate to my personality.”

Now, having won a contract with Wilhelmina Models and CoverGirl Cosmetics, this small-town girl and A-student is ready to leave home and embark on a career.

One thing she's not ready for yet, however?

“I’m ready for the modeling world,” Fox says, “I’m ready to move all over the world if need be, but I’m not ready for a boyfriend!”

On Gossip Girl this week, Lady Gaga performed at NYU after helping Dan, Vanessa and Blair put together a uniquely bizarre Snow White/Gaga-themed musical.

A big reason Gossip Girl was able to score the pop star? Before she became Lady Gaga, Stefani Germanotta herself studied at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Footage has been unearthed of her performing at a talent show at the school back in 2005, and it definitely puts to rest any doubts about the singer's talent.

Okay, all the bizarre Lady Gaga pictures, rumors and costumes may boost her persona, but this girl is a heck of a musician beneath the bombastic facade.

Below, she performs two songs, "Captivated" and "Electric Kiss," providing her own piano accompaniment, and even drawing a comparison to ... Nora Jones.

Check it out and tell us what you think in our poll ...

What do you think of this old school Lady Gaga performance?

As he makes the talk show rounds in order to promote New Moon this week, one thing is clear:

Robert Pattinson is a cool guy!

The actor was as laid back and relaxed as we've ever seen him during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last night.

Pattinson joked about fame, fans and biting babies. When the host finally asked Rob the question on everyone's mind - is he dating Kristen Stewart? - the star hemmed and hawed until Letterman hilariously cut him off with:

"Ah, bite me. What do I care?!?"

If only supermarket tabloids, desperate for sales, felt the same way...

Pamela Anderson starred in sex tapes before they were cool.

Well, they were cool back then, but not as common as today. Take an hour lunch nowadays and there's a decent chance you miss a Tila Tequila nude rant.

Totally Pantsless!

Anyway, perhaps the biggest drawback of a sex tape, aside from the fact that it smacks of desperation, is having to tell your kids about it down the road.

When your mom is Pamela Anderson, you're gonna hear about it at some point. Cameras used to be prerequisites for the hair band rockers nailing her.

It was after the 2006 comedy Borat that Pam decided to tell her two sons about the erotic home video she shot with ex-husband Tommy Lee, their dad.

You know, the sex tape leaked in 1998, so maybe it was when one of the kids was ... okay, never mind, we are putting way too much thought into this.

"I knew kids were going to watch the film and there was a reference to the tape in the movie and people might say things," she said of the Borat quotes.

So, she sat down her sons, Brandon and Dylan, now 12 and 11, for the talk: "I just said, 'Look, Mommy and Daddy were massively in love," she said.

"We videotaped everything, everything was videotaped, and because of this new movie you’re probably going hear about something about it at school.'"

Better they hear it from her ... but talk about awkward.

Someday, many years in the future some kids at school are going to hear about the Carrie Prejean sex tape. What will their self-righteous mom say then?

Eh, she'll probably just blame our moralless society, Larry King and gays.
