Guess Nicole Richie isn't the only one struggling with weight problems.

Gwen Stefani is awesome. Despite being a huge star with a great body, a beautiful celebrity baby and a hunky husband, she remains down to earth and universally pleasing.

But that doesn't mean it's easy for her.

See the May Harper's Bazaar in which Gwen opens up about her relationship with her husband, losing the weight she put on while pregnant with Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, her own narcissistic ways, and her struggle with eating...

On looking good on the go:
"There's always paparazzi outside my house. If you had paparazzi outside your house, you'd make sure you looked good, too."

On Gavin Rossdale being a great father:
"I even wrote in a song, 'You seem like you'd be a good dad.' So, yeah, he's lived up to my expectations, more than. He has always been very loving and romantic."

On her fashion style:
"I've gotten a little more feminine over the last few years. Right into my late 20s, I never wore heels; I was always in my Doc Martens and baggy pants. But as the years go by, you get more comfortable with looking more like a woman."

THG NOTE: Gwen is also known for her... um, interesting hair.

On her ongoing battle with weight
:
"Seriously, though, it's very boring and embarrassing and I hate talking about it, but it's true: I've always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It's an ongoing battle, and it's a nightmare. But I like clothes too much, and I always wanted to wear the outfits I would make. And I'm ... very vain."

THG NOTE
: Hey, we're cool with it if she is. And it certainly seems to be working for her, unlike fashion-faux-pas queens like Mischa Barton.

On where she'll be in 10 years:
"Some days, I think there's no way to get away with this any longer…I still feel like that sometimes, even though it's been 20 years. But then some days, I just feel really inspired and I really believe in everything. It's like the 15 minutes just keep getting longer."

On getting back into shape after giving birth
:
"It's so much work afterward to get the baby weight off. I thought I was going to throw up (the first time she went jogging after giving birth). If you just do it, it comes off. And when you're nursing, like I am, your metabolism is like, whoosh!"

THG NOTE:
That's TMI, Gwen Stefani. TMI. Still, we're grateful for the candidness of your interviews. While we respect Justin Timberlake's "I don't talk about my personal life" mentality, openness is always appreciated.

Justin Timberlake vowed to "break the slime barrier" at Saturday's 20th Annual Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards - and the show's host sure did deliver the green goo.

Timberlake, who won the award for favorite male singer, was slimed both at the beginning and end of the show.

During the opening number, Justin Timberlake, dressed in a tuxedo and an orange scarf, sang:

"You'll never get a drop of slime on old J.T." â€" but was soon covered with it.

Other stars who got drenched with the green stuff included Mandy Moore, Tobey Maguire, Steve Carell, Vince Vaughn, Chris Tucker, and Jackie Chan.

Even Nicole Kidman got slightly slimed when she accepted the award for the animated movie Happy Feet. The actress, who voiced a character in the film, was there on behalf of the film's director, George Miller.

The show, which featured performances by Gwen Stefani and Maroon 5, also included a daredevil bungee jump by stuntman Ron Jones, who plunged into a giant vat of green slime from a height of 225 feet.

Early in raucous show, Charlotte's Web star Dakota Fanning won for favorite female movie star and the Black Eyed Peas won for favorite musical group.

"I consider all of you my friends!" said Fanning, who was presented with the award by Blades of Glory stars Will Ferrell and Jon Heder.

Other awards went to Ben Stiller, who took home the Wannabe Award, Adam Sandler for favorite male film actor and American Idol for favorite the TV show. Idol judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul were on hand to accept the award.

In one of the show's gross-out moments, Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere announced Drake Bell of Josh and Drake as the winner of Nickelodeon's favorite TV actor by picking out the "world's largest booger" from a giant nose.

As for burping champion, Timberlake lost the the title after he was challenged by the entire 12,000-person crowd to a burp-off. Together, everyone at the Pauley Pavilion - with the help of some special effects â€" defeated the singer with a massive ensemble burp.

"Tonight I went head-to-head with every kid in the audience and I don't know if I stood a chance," said Britney Spears' ex-beau after the show. "They came in strong and I gave it a go but it just wasn't good enough."

At the end of the evening, Timberlake, with the help of Vince Vaughn, used a "detonator" to release a giant surge of slime that came up through the floor, spraying the actors and much of the audience and.

Awards are determined by kids who vote to pick the winners. Approximately 40 million votes were cast this year, according to Nickelodeon.

The big news on American Idol last night wasn't which contestants were leaving - but which stars were coming.

The full lineup of guest judges were announced and it's none too shabby.

Harris on Idol

We'll start with Jennifer Lopez, who is rumored to both perform and serve as a guest judge. There's no word on whether or not the show will convert to Scientology for the evening.

Next, Gwen Stefani will serve on the panel for a night. Will there be yodeling involved? Tune in and find out! We also hope she brings along Kingston. That kid is a cutie.

Other stars that will sit alongside Simon, Randy and Paula in the future include:

Finally, men everywhere can be content that Antonella Barba moved on last night. You'll have at least one more week to admire this singer's beauty.

Beautiful rocker, Gwen Stefani, recently sat down with Elle magazine. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

On Madonna:
"It's weird that we have all these similarities. Madonna's had us over to dinner and stuff. She's always been very nice to me…I remember telling Madonna I was going to do an 80s dance record and she rolled her eyes, because I think when you've lived through it like she did, she's like ‘Whatever.' But a lot of my influence came from her early work, like directly, like a Xerox."

On her middle class upbringing:
"The hotel maid walked by today, and she's really pretty and she probably comes from Poland. And here I am about to spend a lot of money on room service and I was thinking, I could have been a maid."

On what her fans say:
"People always say the same things. That I'm smaller than they expected and that I look better in real life. Which is kind of a back-handed compliment."

On her marriage:
"I mean, of course me and Gavin have problems, sometimes. Everyone does. We've been together for over 10 years. This is, like, the real deal."

* The Hollywood Gossip note: This is about nine years and 51 weeks longer than Aaron Carter has been with Kaci Brown.

On 8-month-old son Kingston:
"He's pretty rad…Kingston is so chill. He goes with me everywhere, 'cause I'm still nursing. He's been to every studio in L.A., New York, London. He lives up to his name â€" total Rasta boy. He gives me real balance. You can go 100 miles an hour, but you have to stop to hang out with him."

On her difficult pregnancy:
"I thought I was going to be one of those Mother Nature girls. I figured, I'll just squeeze it out, 'cause I'm really strong and I work out and stuff.

[However] I would be seriously crying before I went onstage. I didn't know how I was going to get through the tour, putting on nine costume changes on a stage in front of 12,000 people every night. And I didn't want people to know [I was pregnant]. I didn't want it to become the Gwen Circus Freak Show â€" ‘Watch it grow onstage.'"

Gwen Stefani and her husband Gavin Rossdale are going b-a-n-a-n-a-s for a new piece of real estate they just snagged. Sorry, that's gotta be in the running for worst introduction to a piece of celebrity news ever.

Reports say Kingston James McGregor Rossdale's parents paid almost $15.5 million for a hot Beverly Hills mansion formerly owned by other prominent celebrity couple, albeit one without a cute baby - Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

J. Lo and Babs

Stefani and Rossdale, who welcomed Kingston into the world in May, plan to have more kids and raise a family in the luxury California property, which has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an infinity pool - whatever that is.

Lopez plans to convert to Scientology. God help her.

Stefani recently expressed her desire for more children, saying in an interview: "I pray that I can have another baby."

So do we. We like Gwen. And we love celebrity babies!

Forget launching a solo career.

Forget giving birth.

Gwen on the Red Carpet

Those challenges were nothing for Gwen Stefani.

At least not compared to the drawn out demolition of the hair edifice the singer initially erected on December 4 at the Billboard Music Awards.

This was a creation more outlandish than the pink 'do Rachel McAdams is now rockin.

But Gwen isn't the only one in her family to go against the style status quo.

Have you seen Kingston these days?

The tyke is bringing back the mohawk, essentially challenging Maddox Jolie-Pitt for for hair-spiking supremacy.

Which celebrity baby will win out?

It's hard to say.

In the meantime, check out these pictures from Us Magazine of Gwen's hairy evolution.

Sorry, Kingston James McGregor Rossdale, apparently you're not enough for mommy.

In an interview with USA Today, Gwen Stefani expressed her affection for her current tyke, along with a yearning to give birth to more.

"I pray that I can have another baby," Stefani said. "I mean, it's such a miracle to have one. And there's so much I still want to do, because who knows? Things could be a lot harder a few years from now. I mean, I'm not at the beginning of my career. I'm on a ticking clock. And I don't want to miss anything."

Stefani is friends with Heidi Klum, who has also expressed a desire to provide the world with more beautiful children.

Kingston was born on May 26 in Los Angeles and is already a show-business professional, says his mom.

"There's this huge team of us always hanging out together, so he gets to see the same people every day," Stefani said of her entourage of stylists, dancers and others. "And he's this very cool, chilled-out little guy. He's just like another person, except that he's super-cute and super-entertaining."

He's also been overshadowed by other celebrity babies in 2006. It's about time Kingston received some love over Shiloh Nouvel, Suri Cruise and Jayden James Federline!

Meanwhile, Stefani is planning to tour in the spring behind her new album with Kingston in tow. She's received a lot of credit for losing baby weight so quickly.

"That was one of the hardest things for me," Gwen said, "the pressure of, 'OK, I need to get into shape so that I can put this record out.' If I didn't have that pressure, I don't think I would have gotten the baby weight off so quickly."

Gwen Stefani performed her best version of "Wind It Up" on The Late Show With David Letterman, and like the incredible mom she is, she even brought along a special guest.

Awww. Little Kingston James McGregor Rossdale even got a cute Letterman t-shirt. It's nice to see that this pop star also seems like a great mom with her head in the right place. Yes. If you're reading this, Britney Spears, we are calling you out.

Stars have babies. Stars lose weight. Us Magazine reports on the process. It's the circle of celebrity child birth.

Britney Spears recently relayed her magical plan of eating less and exercising more to shed her Sutton Pierce (or Jayden James?) pounds to the publication.

Most recently, Gwen Stefani called in to On the Air With Ryan Seacrest on L.A.'s 102.7 KIIS FM on Monday morning to launch her new single "Wind It Up."

The new mom, who gave birth five months ago to Kingston with husband Gavin Rossdale, also weighed in on getting back her post-baby bod. Here are excerpts from the interview:

Gwen Stefani: "The last tour for me was really challenging being that I was pregnant. And if you've ever been pregnant you know that it totally consumes you, so it was really ... I'm excited to go out there and have the baby on the outside!"
Ryan Seacrest: "Well I was gonna say, it's probably gonna be equally as challenging but in a different way because you have to bring Kingston along. So cute."

GS: "He's the greatest thing in the world, it's gonna be so much fun."
RS: "I like his fauxhawk."

GS: "Thank you, yeah ... He finally has enough hair to do something with it so, I was trying to do, you know, doing what I can with it. And his dad doesn't like the side part, he's not really into that, so I was trying to give him some cooler looks."
RS: "You're such a natural the way you hold him and everything."

GS: "Oh thank you. You know, there was no transition, it was just like, 'Where were you?' Like so great."
RS: "And who dresses Kingston?"

GS: "Both of us. But, this morning his dad dressed him. He has on a Bob Marley onesie and some like Comme des Garcons slacks or something, I don't know. He looks really cute."
RS: "It looks like you're keeping in shape though."

GS: "Let's just talk about how hard it's been ... That has been really hard trying to get rid of that baby, that whew! That was a big one but, it's almost down, it's almost gone."
RS: Are you dieting or just exercising?

GS: "You have to be healthy. I've just been eating healthy. I cheat every day at least once a day."
RS: "Can you drink beer yet?"

GS: "No, no not really."
RS: "You're not a beer drinker?"

GS: "I don't really drink a lot of beer anyway, it's not my thing. I don't come home and have, like, a six pack or anything." [laughs]

** THG NOTE: We hope Keith Urban one day feels the same way

Gwen Stefani - who denies having skipped the VMAs due to any problem with Kelly Clarkson - certainly looked care-free during a stroll around the Big Apple over the weekend.

Then again, if Heidi Klum was by your side, you'd probably feel pretty relaxed, also. Or at least speechless.

In this shot, Stefani and husband, Gavin Rossdale, walk with baby Kingston alongside Klum, hubby Seal and their kids on Labor Day.

Earlier this summer, Gwen and Gavin spent a weekend with Brangelina and children. Could the couple be leading the way for of super human children to take over the planet?

We doubt it. They'll probably all just friends.
