Sorry, David Archuleta. But you weren't the cutest guy on American Idol last night.

Certified hottie and impressive humanitarian (and actor) Brad Pitt received a raucous round of applause when he appeared on the Idol stage.

After overcoming microphone difficulties, Pitt introduced a video of Daughtry visiting Uganda and asking for donations. Check it out below:

The sky is the limit when it comes to how much money celebrities are being paid to pimp out their babies in celebrity news and gossip magazines nowadays.

After paying Christina Aguilera $1.5 million in February for shots of her newborn son, Max, People shelled out a whopping $6 million to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony for photos of their newborn twins, Max and Emme.

Brad Pitt and Kids

One celebrity news editor, who asked to remain anonymous, said:

"It's at the point now where some stars might decide to have more kids just to collect the money from their photos."

Pregnant celebrities are now "treating this like a game," said National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine.

"It's become big business now," Levine said. "It's outrageous, they've gotten very sophisticated. The rights are bought up now even before the celebrity enters the hospital. They hire extra security so it's impossible to obtain a photo illegally."

Brangelina made (then gave away) millions from selling photos of Shiloh.

Levine said stars now realize that having a child in this celebrity news media era is "akin to getting a role in a movie."

Celebrity gossip publications don't mind - they recoup money over time with magazine sales, Web hits, and by re-selling the photos overseas.

Angelina Jolie, rumored to be carrying twins, could trump all celebrities by commanding $10 million for the first photos of the babies, Levine said.

"That's where the market is right now," he said. "When I was the editor of Star in L.A., we bought photos of Lisa Marie Presley's baby back in 1989 for $100,000, and at the time I thought it was outrageous. Now it's chump change."

American Media Editorial Director Bonnie Fuller said that the celebrity baby photo payouts just keep escalating: "If J.Lo really did get $6 million, then I think Angelina can now command $8 million," Fuller said. "The magazines must look at it as a long-term investment, but I think it'll cap out at a certain point."

It's always great to report about celebrities giving back to the community and few, if any, are a better example of that than Brangelina.

Former President Bill Clinton, too, is no slouch in that department. Bill hosted his Clinton Global Initiative University, while Pitt, the founder of the Make It Right Foundation, posed with supporters and promoted an all-important cause.

The political and Hollywood stars greeted volunteers and broke ground for new homes in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana, on Sunday.

Brad Pitt and Bill Clinton walked along the street as hundreds of volunteers on each side, wielding shovels and rakes, prepared the land for homes, clearing overgrown grass and weeds that were covering drains and sidewalks.

The foundation headed by Pitt plans to begin building affordable homes for Hurricane Katrina victims, and the 9th Ward was one of the hardest hit.

"We hope to see a huge change here in the next six months," Pitt told a group of residents as the 42nd President stood by his side.

While Brangelina continued rebuilding New Orleans, Bennifer (Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner) had politics on the mind, hosting a fundraiser for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Sunday in Boston, Mass.

Wearing a gray suit and black Converse All Star sneakers, Ben Affleck said he and his wife were just doing "their part for society."

Calling the Illinois senator a "genuine, real force" he said "there are a lot of things" he loves about Barack Obama, "but I won't bore you with all of them. I'm an actor. I'm not going to create 10-point policy details."

Affleck has been a Barack Obama supporter since he first met him at the 2004 Democratic convention in Boston, according to the Boston Herald.

Their relationship hasn't gotten too close for comfort.

"I'm just grateful he didn't ask me to do a sexy YouTube video with him," Affleck said, referring to his raunchy music video with Jimmy Kimmel.

Okay, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt aren't exactly selling any children (although we hear she's willing to entertain an offer for Shiloh).

Instead, according to Us Weekly, the world's most beautiful couple is admittedly pregnant - but is waiting to reveal the official news until a celebrity gossip source ponies up the big bucks for an exclusive. Angelina and Brad would then donate the money to charity.

It's exactly what Jamie Lynn Spears did when she found out she was knocked up, only the exact opposite.

We're not sure how much Brangelina wants for this information, but The Hollywood Gossip staff could probably scrounge up a calzone or two. Maybe a Dunkin Donuts or iTunes card. Call us!

The Hollywood Gossip would like to wish a very happy birthday to a trio of stars on this 18th of December: Brad Pitt, Katie Holmes and Christina Aguilera!

Brad Pitt was born in Shawnee, Oklamoma, back in 1963, while Katie Holmes came into this cruel world in Toledo, Ohio, in 1978, and Christina Aguilera was welcomed by her Staten Island, N.Y., parents on this day in 1980.

Christina Aguilera Nude for W

These three beautiful celebrities have enjoyed enormous success in the arenas of movies, TV and music, but in the past year, each has become known as much for their role as parents - or parents-to-be - as for their respective careers!

Katie Holmes gave birth to daughter Suri Cruise in 2006, while Aguilera and her husband, Jordan Bratman (pictured), will welcome their first child in January.

Which a biological daughter in Shiloh and three adopted youngsters in Pax Thien, Maddox and Zahara, the Brangelina Brood is a formidable one.

Happy birthday to Katie, X-tina and Brad! We know the latter won't don his birthday suit on film anymore, but Angelina Jolie will be seein' Brad Pitt nude tonight!

According to Us Weekly, adopting a child and helping with rebuilding efforts in New Orleans earns a couple more points than posing naked, starring in a record-breaking movie and paying celebrity gossip photographers to snap contrived pictures of yourselves making out, on the beach, in pumpkin patches...

For shame.

The drawn out complaint above is based on the fact that the tabloid has named Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as its couple of the year. Its reasoning?

"America couldn't stop watching Jolie and Pitt as they juggled two hot careers and went from three kids to four (Pax, 4, joined in March)..."

Us Weekly Honor

We're big fans of Brangelina, but they're so 2006. This year truly belonged to a pair of younger, over-exposed couples:

Told of the snub - even Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes beat he and Montag out for second place - Pratt said:

"Brangelina can have this award. I still have an angel in Heidi Montag, the most beautiful girl in the entire world. Plus I will be running for governor of California in 2010."

Don't expect you're gonna see Brad Pitt nude any longer. The hunk has sworn off such explicit material because he doesn't want his kids to see it.

"I don't want to be embarrassed when my kids get old enough to see my films," Brad Pitt told the BBC. "I can't see any more nude scenes in my career."

Fake Brangelina News Covers

A naked Brad Pitt previously burned up the big screen in Thelma and Louise and Troy - as well as with a nude Angelina Jolie in the flick Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Zahara and Shiloh won't be seeing Brad Pitt naked on screen.

As for his future in films, the Pitt is promoting The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and told the BBC he's "got very few films left. Who knows how many I'll get to do, so I want to do something I'm interested in. Otherwise, I don't want to bother. I think it's a younger person's game."

Brad Pitt recently dropped out of the film State of Play, and also said he wasn't interested in making any more movies of the Ocean's Eleven variety.

"There's no more," he said of the series of flicks he made with George Clooney, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia. "I think we need to put away childish things."

And Brad Pitt nude. Consider that put away for good. Sorry guys.

Brad Pitt loves bedtime.

And it's not because this is when he often sees Angelina Jolie nude.

As People magazine reports, the actor instead looks forward to tucking his kids in and talking closely with the slew of cuties.

"It is a really special time, a time I value and it's that one-on-one time where you really ask the questions and I want to make sure they have that," Pitt told Good Morning America's Diane Sawyer on Friday.

It all stems from Pitt's own childhood, which he relayed to Sawyer in 1997 on ABC's Primetime.

"The three of us siblings, we'd jump in our beds, separate rooms, and we'd all be yelling for [mom], because she'd take turns coming from room to room, right? And we'd just talk for hours sometimes. Just talk," he said.

They'd also dance sometimes. But the gorgeous actor doesn't wanna pass around this talent - or lackthereof - to his kids:  Maddox, 6, Pax, 3, Zahara, 2, and Shiloh, 1.

"We hope they're not soaking up our moves because they'd be seriously lacking in their future. We'll get them some proper training," he said of himself and Jolie. "There's a lot of dancing around the house, a lot of music time."

Move over, Zanessa!

The new generation's Brangelina has been hogging the headlines from the old generation's Brangelina. With that in mind, Brad Pitt recently stepped up and announced he and Angelina Jolie's future intentions.

Are they ready for another child?

"Yeah we're ready," Pitt said.

As everyone knows, Brad and Angelina have adopted children from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia - with a biological child named Shiloh Nouvel tossed in there - but Pitt didn't indicate whether they intend to adopt this time.

Brad Pitt has seen Angelina Jolie nude. He may do so again shortly in order to impregnate her with another child.

According to the Associated Press, the actor said that fatherhood may be robbing him of his beauty sleep, but it's a worthwhile trade-off.

"It's the most fun I've ever had and also the biggest pain... I've ever experienced," Pitt said when asked what it was like to become a father to four children in such a short period of time. "I love it and can't recommend it any more highly â€" although sleep is nonexistent."
