One is a sexy Hollywood starlet.

The other is an aging actor who, according to the Internet, once sold his soul to the devil in exchange for unparalleled martial arts skills, then - in an ironic twist - roundhouse kicked the devil in the face and took his soul back.

So what do Scarlett Johansson and Chuck Norris have in common?

They both backed winners in Thursday's Iowa caucuses. Yes, with a little help from their celebrity fans, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mike Huckabee emerged victorious in Iowa's first-in-the-nation vote.

While Chuck Norris, 67, stumped for Mike Huckabee in December and was with him last night, Johansson, 23, was by Obama's side, speaking at a rally for high school and college-aged "Barack Stars" in Coralville, Iowa, this week.

Scarlett Johansson urged younger Democrats in Iowa to help deliver a Barack Obama victory, and they obliged as the Illinois senator won the caucus.

"She actually seemed a little shy when she started speaking," audience member Jason Millsap said. "But she warmed up to the crowd ... It was pretty exciting and inspiring to see someone as big as her come and talk to her peers."

"[Scarlett Johansson] was asked a question as to why she chose to support Barack Obama and answered it very well, in my opinion," added high schooler and caucus goer Peter Caroll. "She [explained] how she did research him and found Obama to be [passionate about] most of the issues she deemed important."

Young voters, like Johansson and her fellow Barack Stars, may have been a key to Barack Obama's victory over John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. Obama took an estimated 57 percent of the under-30 vote, according to CNN.

If there's one person who knows about raising children, it's Adrianne Curry.

No, wait, she knows about being annoying and posing nude.

Britney Down Under

Either way, this former winner of America's Next Top Model posted the following on her blog, regarding Britney Spears and her recent breakdown:

"Spears is a f-cking trainwreck... Someone take these children the fuck away from this woman! She needs help in every which way. The CHILDREN deserve better. She loves herself and her problems more than she cares about her own children.

Sadly, K-fed isn't Dad of the year either. Didn't he leave Shar Jackson for Spears when Shar was knocked up? Then, didn't he barely see his children while he jetted around giving Brit Brit the pole?

Those kids deserve a stable life. When Britney gets sober one day, I bet she will completely agree with me. Get help, save your children, and PLEASE, GET THE F-CK OFF MY TV! I am tired of seeing a strung out addict.

Come back when you can function."

In celebrity baby news that doesn't involve emergency room visits (hope you're okay, Jayden James!), a pair of stars are expecting a child with their loved ones.

First up, Jack Black and wife Tanya Haden are adding another kid to their family.

Awkward Oscar Moment

"Yes, she's expecting," Black told reporters at the Be Kind Rewind press day at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The two are already parents to a 1½-year-old boy.

Meanwhile, rapper T.I. and his occasional girlfriend Tameka Cottle (of the '90s R&B group Xscape), are expecting another child together.

This will be the fifth child for T.I. and his second with Cottle. We hope they take lessons from Britney Spears on how NOT to parent.

How far would you go to see Hannah Montana?

We mean in person, not just the racy Miley Cyrus photos on our site.

Young Pole Dancer

It turns out one Texas mom would go pretty damn far. She helped her daughter, who is six years old, win tickets in a contest by writing an essay falsely claiming her father died in Iraq in a roadside bombing. Well, that's one strategy.

Priscilla Ceballos apologized Friday on NBC's Today Show.

In a statement, she said she just got caught up in the moment of trying to help her daughter realize her dream of seeing Hannah Montana.

"Instead I brought so much negative attention to my family," Ceballos said. "Please accept my apology and please do not punish my child for my mistake."

Priscilla Ceballos also apologized to the military and military families.

"I just wanted to help my daughter write a compelling story," Ceballos said. "And There is certainly no more compelling story than the struggle and sacrifices of our military and their families."

The essay â€" which featured the opening line, "My daddy died this year in Iraq" â€" won the grand prize in a contest, sponsored by Club Libby Lu.

The big prize included airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four - four! - tickets to a sold-out Hannah Montana concert there, as well as a makeover that included a blonde Hannah Montana wig!! Like, OMG!!!

After Priscilla Ceballos admitted to officials that the essay information was untrue, the prize was awarded to another unnamed contestant.

Miley Cyrus was reportedly too busy kissing girlfriends to comment.

The stripper who claims that she had a strange, torrid fling with boxing champion Oscar de la Hoya - and has the alleged stilettoed, kinky drag photos to prove it - is fighting to get the hunk into the ring. Legally. So to speak.

Oscar, meanwhile, is trying to send the case to a secret arbitration.

Millie Corretjer

Milana Dravnel filed a memorandum to nix De La Hoya's request to get the case dismissed on grounds that she agreed to arbitrate her claims against him.

Milana Dravnel to Oscar de la Hoya: Put up your dukes, Nancy!

Dravnel says she never made any deal with the boxer to go to arbitration, much less an agreement to publicly disavow the Oscar de la Hoya drag photos.

The gist of all this?

Milana Dravnel wants a public trial to help win her $100 million suit, while the champ wants it handled in secret. Makes sense for both parties.

Oscar's lawyer didn't immediately respond to a call for comment. Oscar and his wife, Millie Corretjer, recently welcomed their second child.

They've been married less than a year.

He's locked up while she roams the streets like a zombie.

Very little makes sense in the life of singer Amy Winehouse.

Therefore, why shouldn't she renew her wedding vows ... in jail!?

Having already made suicide pact with her troubled hubby, the embattled singer is totally 100 percent, completely consumed by love for Blake Fielder-Civil.

He is awaiting trial on assault charges - and subsequent efforts to bribe a witness and get him the hell out of England before the case went to trial.

Amy, Blake

A bizarre jailhouse ceremony between Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil will reportedly take place at Pentonville Prison this weekend.

Amy is up for an impressive six Grammy Awards for her album, Back to Black. With her singing talent and the album's success, she'll surely be a big winner.

Whether she makes it to said awards show is another story. She's only slightly more reliable and less insane than our girl Britney Spears!

While Britney Spears hospitalized in Los Angeles and being monitored constantly after last night's psychotic meltdown, her ex-husband has moved to strip her of all visitation rights with their sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

Kevin Federline himself snuck into court this morning under the radar but left the area as the hearing adjourned, TMZ reports. He may return later as an emergency hearing in the custody case is believed to be set for 1:30 PST.

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, was in court this morning at 8:30 a.m. to ask the Commissioner to strip Britney Spears of all visitation rights - at least for now. Attorney Tara Scott from the law firm of Trope and Trope is representing Britney - awkward, since the firm asked to withdraw as counsel Wednesday.

The hearing ended but is expected to resume this afternoon. Through an assistant, Mark Vincent Kaplan declined comment to reporters.

While Federline asks the court to indefinitely bar Britney Spears from visits with Sean and Jayden, Lynne Spears simply hopes people pray for her daughter.

Spears' family has been showing their support. Her dad, Jamie Spears, has been at the hospital with his daughter. Brother Bryan Spears was expected to show up today. Spears' mother, Lynne Spears, who's been in "constant contact" with the troubled singer, is en route from Kentwood, La., as is Jamie Lynn Spears.

According to Access Hollywood, Lynne Spears was "extremely distraught and crying about Britney on the phone" when contacted by their staff.

"Just say prayers," Lynne said.

Conspicuously absent from Cedars-Sinai: Mr. Adnan Ghalib, 35, who works for the celebrity photo agency called FinalPixx, and who has checked into a pair of hotels with Britney Spears over the last couple of weeks.

Sources say that as Spears was holed up in her Studio City home during her epic meltdown, Adnan Ghalib was not present - nor has he visited her at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was hospitalized early Friday.

When asked about Spears Friday, Adnan Ghalib would not comment.

UPDATE: As of 2:45 PST, the court hearing is over, and K-Fed has been awarded sole legal and physical custody of the boys until January 14.

We'll see what contact Britney Spears will have with Sean and Jayden as of that date. Kaplan declined comment on what was decided, but said: "There are no winners here. We are not happy about any of the events that have happened."

Britney Spears went "completely psycho" as she was rushed to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical center late last night, sources very close to the embattled singer, who has been designated a "special needs" patient, report.

"They had to strap her down to the gurney like a mental patient and she was going between laughing and hysterics," a hospital source tells Us Weekly, calling it "a total psychotic breakdown. She just went crazy."

Sources at the hospital are now reporting that Britney's meltdown had nothing to do with drugs or alcohol, as was originally believed. They say it's mental and that what went down last night was not unexpected.

Life & Style claims that Britney tested negative for drugs and booze. A source told the magazine, "Her blood test just came back, and, thank God, it was clean. There are no traces of drugs or alcohol of any kind."

Because Britney Spears is in Cedars-Sinai's special needs unit, staff are monitoring her around the clock. However, the source said when they got the call to monitor the singer, "none of us wanted to go sit with her." Shocking!

Britney Spears will be on lockdown for 72 hours.

LAPD Officer Jason Lee said Spears appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance after she was taken to the hospital on a gurney following a bizarre, nearly three-hour custody standoff. No injuries were reported.

Once in the ambulance, paramedics could be seen trying to strap her legs down before taking off. Britney Spears was admitted to Cedars-Sinai and placed on a "medical hold" - essentially an extended mental evaluation.

Reports also say Britney Spears has not slept or eaten in days.

Says a Britney Spears pal: "She has good and bad days - it's mental instability. All she has is to think of something sad and she goes crazy."

You think?

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will be in front of the court at 8:30 PST requesting Britney's visitation rights for Sean Preston and Jayden James (already limited) be revoked altogether.
