Rachel Bilson is a moderately successful actress.

Emma Watson plays a key role in one of the biggest movie franchises in history, while also attending Brown.

Miley Cyrus is a floundering singer with an unpopular CD.

But while these young stars might not have anything obvious in common, they do share taste in the latest fashion trend: cut-off jean shorts and white button-down blouses. All three have rocked the look this summer and it's up to you to decide who did it best:

Who looks prettiest in this ensemble?

Last month, Miley Cyrus made one of the most confusing, ridiculous comments on record, saying there's a double standard at work between the negative reaction she receives on stage and the praise heaped upon Zac Efron in movies.

However, Miley also showed love for the former High School Musical star, telling Billy Bush:

“Zac has a special place in my heart. If it wasn’t creepy and he wasn’t my friend, I would have posters of him on my wall.”

After being shown this interview, Efron had the following to say to Access Hollywood about Cyrus: “I’ve known her since she was a little girl. It’s amazing what she’s done. She’s blossomed into this beautiful lady and taking the world by storm. I’m so proud of her.”

In other words: Zac is the anti-THG when it comes to Miley Cyrus.

As he tours the country in promotion of Charlie St. Cloud, meanwhile, Efron stopped by the Mall of America in Minnesota yesterday.

Over 7,000 fans came out to meet and greet this handsome actor. Check out a trio of photos from the event below:

Miley Cyrus is getting ready to LOL.

The actress will co-star with Demi Moore in a dramatic movie that finds her struggling with relationships and with the divorce of her parents. Those that tune in each week to watch Miley on The Disney Channel might wanna stay away, she recently warned in an interview.

"The next film I'm doing is not for the [Hannah Montana] audience," she said. "But that is why I did the last season, for my young fans... I have to choose scripts that are right for someone who is 18 because that is me.

"It's very different going from a show with a huge audience and fan base to something... independent. But I'm excited to work on a film that is going to touch people. It's edgy and different and I don't know how the fans will react, but it's something I can relate to."

Wait... no profound cliches about how one must live a happy life? An admission that she's risking alienation among her core fans? No ridiculous quote about how this movie will empower women!?

Who is this person, and what has she done with Miley Cyrus?!?

Miley Cyrus may be a colossal disappointment for a variety of reasons, but at least she doesn't curse, smoke or look like a raccoon at all times.

The same can't be said for Gossip Girl cast member Taylor Momsen.

Speaking to FHM UK this week, the 16-year old lashed out at critics that compare her to Miley, making it very clear that she doesn't see any similarities between the pair.

"I'm not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus," Momsen said. "I don't care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we'll go along for the ride."

  • Miles in Concert

Momsen and Cyrus may both act and sing, but that's pretty much where the comparisons end. The former fronts rock band The Pretty Reckless, while the latter is nothing more than a Britney Spears wannabe at this point.

Still, Taylor feels a need to distance herself from Miley, adding: "I think the Disney bubblegum shit that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression."

It's unclear what that actually means, but Gossip Girl fans have made their opinion of Momsen and her character well-known: Jenny Humphrey has been written out of most of next season on the show.

Good riddance.

Ready to enter an alternate universe?

Given the extreme makeover Miley Cyrus has undergone over the past couple months, it's jarring to remember that she still plays Hannah Montana on television.

In fact, that show will air the first episode of its final season tomorrow night. It finds the Stewarts moving into a new ranch home and we've posted a sneak peek at the premiere below.

Miley is front and center, but there are no same-sex kisses, no gyrating of the crotch and no torn-up, low-cut, ridiculous outfits to be seen...

Cyrus has gone out of her way to say she wants to shed this innocent image, but she really might wanna think twice about that.

After all, her new album sales have been abysmal. She may have to accept the fact that most fans want to see her as looks here, not as some Britney Spears wannabe:

Miley Cyrus has been tamed again.

After an incredibly disappointing opening week of sales for "Can't Be Tamed," fans of this young singer said to wait. It's just been a few days, they cried! Give the album time!

Miley Cyrus Halloween Outfit

A week later, though, the compilation is barely holding a place in the Billboard 200's top 10. With Eminem's "Recovery" still holding strong at number-one (with 313,000 copies sold), Miley's CD fell six places to number-nine, selling just 32,000 copies.

That's an astounding 68% drop-off from last week.

By comparison, Miley's 2008 "Breakout" sold 1.5 million copies and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. There's very little chance "Can't Be Tamed" will achieve half that level of success.

Does this mean Miley has lost a significant amount of her fan base? There's no other way to see it. Numbers speak for themselves.

Perhaps she should go to college, after all. They have marketing classes there.

For weeks, THG has been offering Miley Cyrus advice: put on pants, cut out the desperate antics, focus on country music - and shut up.

But what do we know about it? We're simply a (very attractive) celebrity gossip blog. We can't relate to the life of a teenage celebrity.

Kellie Martin can, however. The actress rose to fame on the sitcom Life Goes On and has remained grounded, most recently recurring on ER as the character of Lucy Knight and guest-starring on episodes of Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.

Asked by Fancast.com if she had any advice for Miley, Martin replied:

"Go to college.  I really think that saved me.  Fred [Savage] went to Stanford, Mayim [Bialik] went to UCLA, I went to Yale... It’s really, really important to get an education because when all of this is gone, then at least you have your education."

Kellie Martin

Martin appears to be a fan of Miley's, adding: "She’s wildly talented, little Miley Cyrus, and she has a sweet family.  If she went to college, she’d be totally set. She’d be set forever.”

It's true that none of the childhood stars cited above have been arrested, gone bankrupt or had compromising photos of themselves released online.

Wouldn't it be great if Cyrus followed the advice? It's just a shame no one offered it to Lindsay Lohan.

Last month, Miley Cyrus compared herself to Britney Spears.

Now, Katy Perry has gone ahead and done the same thing - but with a very different meaning behind it.

According to Life & Style, Perry caught a glimpse of Miley's outfits at the 2010 MuchMusic Awards and said to a friend:

"Oh my God, poor girl... She's Britney Spears all over again. It's happening right before our eyes... she's definitely headed the Britney route. It's worse. Look at those outfits. It's bad."

  • Hot Hot Katy
  • Pants!

We've been saying the same thing for weeks, of course... but we don't go around posing for Esquire like this. Makes it a bit tough for Perry to present her case, doesn't it?

Meanwhile, Cyrus joined Dolly Parton on stage for a duet outside Knoxville this weekend. She actually sounded great, making her current image that much more frustrating.

As you can see below, when Miley sings country and wears clothing, she's a quality artist:

Between the lack of pants and abudance of simulated same-sex kissing, it's easy to forget that Miley Cyrus still portrays Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel.

That series kicks off its final season on Sunday night and Miley previewed it a press conference this week.

A Fancy Ensemble

"[It's about] her graduating, and seeing what college is all about and seeing whether she wants to pursue her career or go to school and try to live a normal life," Cyrus told reporters. "I can't believe it's already coming to an end, either. I mean, it just feels like we kind of just started."

Will Miley's musical makeover negatively affect her TV show's viewership?

Looking back on the series, Miley credits herself for starting a trend.

"It kind of has opened so many doors for other artists on Disney, too, to be able to involve music and acting and all that. I definitely didn't expect it to take off the way that it did, especially so soon."

But we can't help but wonder: will Miley's transformation into an adult artist hurt Hannah Montana? Will she lose viewers, as her latest album clearly lost fans. Cyrus says she can't worry about that:

"I can't only base my career off of the 6-year-olds. It's the 16-year-olds, the 26-year-olds, that's I'm trying to reach for now. That's not letting the younger kids down. I will continue to do things that will be good for them, too. But, I also have to move on."

That's fine and all, but can't she find a less desperate, more creative way of doing that?

Country music legend is admittedly biased, but she has a message for critics of Miley Cyrus:

Give the girl a break!

In an interview with Fox News, Parton is asked about the rebukes of Miley's new image these days and says: "I've known her since she was a baby." She then takes the same stance on digs directed at Cyrus as Miley herself takes on pants:

"I hate it when people criticize her," Dolly says.

Miley and Her Bra

Parton continues to praise her "honorary goddaughter," adding: "She is a great singer; she has a great voice. She's a great little entertainer and she can speak to you like she is 50 years old."

We guess that's true. At least if 50 year-olds are known for spouting Hallmark card-like cliches about love and life.

In closing, Dolly seems to at least acknowledge that Miley's new CD has been a bust on the charts, but the singing legend takes a grander, positive view of her young pal:

"She'll land in the right place. I really know she has everything it takes. She is just trying to find her way and she will."

Those words sound eerily similar to what some people said about Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan back in the day. Let's hope Miley's path ends in a different location from that of those two trainwrecks.
