Beyoncé, who is surely number 1, 2 and 3 on the list, smolders in animal-print panties and a cutoff T that shows enough skin to single-handedly keep print alive for another decade.
Beyond looking sexy as all century, Bey has quite a bit on her plate: The sultry chanteuse is due to perform during the Super Bowl halftime show , and was recently invited to sing the National Anthem at President Obama's second inauguration .
Sources connected with NBC tell TMZ ... Justin's camp has declared NOTHING off-limits. To the contrary, our sources say Justin himself has told producers to push him as far as they want.
Smart move ... It worked for Paris Hilton, who appeared on SNL right after her sex tape was released. Alec Baldwin also scored right after the whole Words with Friends thing. FYI -- Justin's doing double duty on the show -- hosting and performing. Wonder how they're gonna stock the greenroom?
Gangster Squad star Josh Brolin has joined the castof Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Brolin joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt as faces to the Sin City roll call, which sees Mickey Rourke , Jessica Alba , Jaime King and Rosario Dawson among those returning.
Jamie Chung is replacing Devon Aoki and DennisHaysbert has replaced the late Michael Clarke Duncan for the sequel.
Brolin will star as Dwight, a part played by Clive Owen in the 2005 first Sin City movie.
"Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world, and A Dame to Kill For is a defining episode in his life," said Rodriguez and Miller in a statement. "We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight."
The movie is shooting in Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin.
The storyline involving Dwight was one the more fondly remembered threads of Miller's Sin City comic mini-series, published in the 1990s by Dark Horse. It centered on a photographer who falls back into the life of a beautiful woman named Ava who had left him years earlier for a wealthy man, only to see himself set up for the murder of her husband.
The part of Ava is the last major role yet to be cast.
Dimension is releasing the movie Oct. 4 in the U.S. and Canada. Producing are Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist.
Brolin is repped by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham.
The oldest daughter of legendary German actor Klaus Kinski , claims her father sexually abused her starting from the age of five.
In an exclusive interview with German magazine Stern , to be published on Thursday, Kinski said her father violently abused her, raping her multiple time, over a period of 14 years.
Kinski, best known for his work with director Werner Herzog on films such as Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre: The Wrath of God , died in 1991.
In a new autobiography published in Germany entitled Kindermund - which can be roughly translated as Out of the Mouths of Babes - Pola Kinski, now 60, details the abuse she said she suffered at his hands. She is the actor's eldest daughter by his first wife, singer Gislinde Kuhlbeck . The two divorced in 1955.
Pola Kinski initially lived with her mother, but movedout when her mother met another man. Speaking to Stern , Kinski said her father took advantage of her situation, taking her with him on work across Europe.
She said he was violently abusive towards her, throwing her against the wall and raping her and then compensating by showering her with expensivegifts. He saw her as "his little sex object, bedded on a silk cushion," Pola Kinski said. "I didn't want to, buthe didn't care. He just took whatever he wanted."
Pola Kinski - like her half-siblings Nastassja and Nikolai Kinski - is also known for her acting work, having appeared in several German TV movies, as well as on stage. A mother of three, she is now retired.
The late Klaus Kinski is already a divisive and controversial figure in Germany. His violent outbursts on set - famously captured on film in Herzog's documentary My Favorite Enemy - are the stuff of legend. Pola Kinski said she is coming out with her accusations now, because she is sick of the idolization of her father in some German media.
"I can't hear it anymore: 'Your father! Great! A genius! I always liked him," she said. "The idolization has only gotten worse since his death."
Khloe Kardashian is auctioning her used sports bra online.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star launched an eBay page with her husband last year.
RadarOnline reports Kim's younger sister has now added some very personal items.
Items include a used sports bra and a silk bathrobe.
The "Aerie Fit Sports Bra Size S" is up for bid starting at $.99.
Yoga pants are also for sale with a starting bid of $2.25.
A pair of Brian Atwood high heels was among the most popular and less bizarre items.
The designer shoes were up to $158.50 with 22 bids in the first few hours of the auction.
According to the listing "a portion of the proceeds" from sales will go to charity.
Kardashian has chosen her husband, Lamar Odom's, cancer charity, Cathy's Kids.
Kardashian tweeted about the auctions: "New year, new wardrobe," she wrote, sending fans to her eBay page.
Kardashian and basketball star Lamar were married in 2009.
Five minutes into their season-opening news conference and the new team at American Idol were having their first disagreement - about their disagreements.
Then Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj kept it going.
''We're professionals. Have you ever had an argument with someone you've worked with?'' Minaj said after repeated questions about her reported feud with new fellow judge Carey.
''This was sort of one-sided,'' interjected Carey, wearing a queenly smile.''No, it wasn't,'' snapped back Minaj.
Fox network executive Mike Darnell was asked by reporters with the Television Critics Association if the clash was authentic. He said there was a lot of musical passion within the group, which also includes Australian country star Keith Urban and returning judge Randy Jackson, and that triggered disagreements.
''The fighting is what it is,'' Carey said at one point. ''This is American Idol. It's bigger than all that. It's bigger than some stupid trumped-up thing.''
Reports that the two divas were at odds surfaced last year. On The View, Barbara Walters recounted a phone conversation with Carey in which the pop star said that Minaj threatened to shoot her after a taping.
The rapper quickly responded with dismissive tweets.Trumped up or not, she and Minaj appeared on the panel with Urban carefully placed between them and indulged in their briefly testy ''one-sided'' exchange.
But they also responded to a request to say something nice about each other. Minaj called Carey one of her favourite all-time artists who has shaped a generation of singers.
In return, Carey fondly recalled working with Minaj on a single titled - ''ironically'', as Carey noted - Up Out My Face.
''I knew she was going to go far, and still is,'' Carey said.
American Idol begins its 12th season this week (7.30pm Fridays and and Saturdays on Prime) facing questions once again about its ability to endure as a top-rated show, especially given the increasingly crowded talent show landscape that includes the hit The Voice.
All the shows are down in the ratings, Darnell noted. Veteran executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is used to hearing the query.
Famous judges have the pre-debut spotlight and media attention but the contestants ultimately are what keep viewers watching, he said after the panel.
That's not to say the panel isn't key, said Trish Kinane, another executive producer.''We wanted judges who were experts and had a right to be here, and we also wanted honesty,'' she said.
''We very much took that into consideration. I think we've got it. They're not shrinking violets, they say what they think, and we encourage that.''Minaj displayed that today saying firmly that Idol is not the show for rap, her own genre.
''If you're looking for people to believe you and feed you as a rapper, I wouldn't do it,'' said Minaj, adding that viewers love American Idol as an ''honest singing competition, and I'm not here to change that''.
2012 was quite an eventful (not necessarily positive) year for the rapper turned singer – leaving the Mo'Hits Records after label bosses Don Jazzy and D'banj controversially split up, joining forces with the former to set up Mavin Records and don't forget that messy leaked conversation with pop singer Davido.

She's already wedded her hubby 2face Idibia last year but a secret wedding isn't what she's settling for.
We've already reported that plans are in top gear for an elaborate white wedding in February.
Annie is going all out on this one, already assigning roles and tasks to her friends.
The actress posted on Instagram a photo of herself and two friends walking on the streets of New York where she's currently shopping.

Coming soon after Emeka Ike 's many accusations about the integrity of the guild are more complaints from popular actress, Patience Ozokwor . Unconfirmed reports claim Ozokwor isn't happy with the recent election and is making serious efforts to frustrate the administration, allegedly going as far as starting a new guild in Enugu, where she resides, to achieve her mission.
But in a chat with us, the president of the guild, Ibinabo Fiberisima , vehemently denied the story. 'That's not true at all, there is nothing, I promise
you. She is like a mother to me' she told us.
In a similar manner, Vice President of the AGN Board of Trustees, Emma Ogugua , claimed ignorance of the matter, saying that Ozokwor was yet to publicly declare her intentions: 'Anybody has the right to formany association but she can't because she is yet to denounce the guild' he said.
But the guild's Public Relations Officer, Frank Dallas , has confirmed there is some animosity going on. He told a gistbank.blogspot.com reporter that the actress was guilty of anti-guild offences, adding that proper measures will be made to restrain her. According to him, Ozokwor started a Nollywood Talent hunt show in Abuja without the consent of the guild, which was frowned upon by the president, and in retaliation, Ozokwor began her anti-AGN campaign.
When Nigerian Entertainment Today spoke with Ozokwor, she declined to confirm or deny the rumors, saying: ' I can't let you interview me on telephone, if you want to talk to me, come to my house. I live in Enugu '. She also declined our offer of an interview conducted via email.
These are some of the predictions of Prophet Marcus Tibetan, the Parish Head of Celestial Church of Christ,Elisha Parish, for the year 2013.
Respected for the accuracy of his predictions, ProphetMarcus Tibetan, who is widely referred to as the Nostradamus of our time, predicts that ten Ministers in the cabinet of President Goodluck Jonathan would be dropped this year for being ineffective and incompetent.
President Goodluck Jonathan, says the prophet, should pray against losing loved ones in this year 2013. The President should pray very hard against a situation that would arise and make him spend at least seven years in jail after his tenure as President of Nigeria.
He further predicts that the Senate President, David Mark, should begin to wind up and prepare for his exit from politics as disgrace is imminent.
The Vice President, Namadi Sambo, should forget anyambition of being the Vice President of Nigeria again after this first term. Bamanga Tukur may be the last PDP Chairman as the party would suffer a lot of crisesand setbacks in 2013.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo needs to do more for the Yoruba race in particular and Nigeria in general. He should perform the assignment of putting the Yoruba race in the forefront with zeal as this could be his last assignment.
Prophet Marcus Tibetan's earth shaking predictions for the year 2013 are presently being compiled into a book which will be in circulation within the first quarter of the year.
The Prophet, who is loved and respected in his native town of Ode-Aye, has visited more than eighty countries. His mastery of the Bible can be seen in his in exhaustive quotations from the Holy book.
The man of God is able to cure chronic diseases and ailments such as sickle cell anaemia and diabetes, amongst others.

The state Coordinator of the agency, Mr. Henry Ogunbanwo said the goats would be charged to court by the agency and would be prosecuted in accordance with the laws guiding environmental protection in the state.
He said the state government had issued notice of warning to all residents of the state capital on the need to monitor their domestic animals to avoid public disturbance by the animals, which, he said, was againstthe environmental laws.
Ogunbanwo disclosed that the five goats arrested were detained at the office of the agency in Osogbo from where they would be taken to court for prosecution.
He said the goats ran fowl of the laws guiding environmental protection by roaming around the residential area of Osogbo instead of being caged by their owners. He declared that the present administration in the state had zero tolerance for dirtiness and environmental hazard; hence the need for the enshrinement of the environmental laws, adding that the government would not take it lightly with violators of the laws According to him, officials of the agency would from now move to every nook and crannyof the state to arrest animals violating the state environmental laws, stressing that owners of such animals would also be dealt with in accordance with theprovisions of the laws.
He advised those rearing domestic animals to keep them in a cage to avoid arrest, insisting that his agencywould not allow any animal to roam about on the streets of any town or village in the state. He urged those looking for their goats in Osogbo and its environs to check at the state office of OWMA in Osogbo.
The lecturer (name withheld), who is in the Faculty of Law was arrested by the university's security personneland handed over to the police after he allegedly collected the marked money from the student to change her course of study from English Language to Law.
It was learnt that the arrest of the lecturer had led to the busting of a syndicate that specialized in extorting money from students in the institution. Informed sources at the university revealed that the suspect, said to have strong links in the committee constituted by management to coordinate students' inter-faculty movement every academic session, used his vantage position to compel the female student to pay N150,000 to approve her request for a switch from the Faculty of Arts to the Law faculty.
It was gathered that the student, who could not immediately raise the money, following pressure mounted on her by the lecturer, reported to another lecturer, who decried the planned extortion and encouraged her to formally lodge a complaint with the higher authority in the institution. Following the advice,the student played along and called the lecturer that she could only raise N100, 000, which she was promptly directed to pay into a certain account given her by the lecturer.
Luck, however, ran against the lecturer when he called the girl's mobile phone, asking her to discontinue the bank arrangement and instead, to bring the money to him in his office, just when she was going to pay the money into the bank account earlier given to her. Sources told Daily Sun that no sooner that the female student delivered the marked money to the lecturer than the alerted personnel from the security unit swooped on the unsuspecting lecturer and handed him over to the police.
A search in the lecturer's office by the university security personnel was said to have led to the discoveryof a list of 18 students, including the female student who paid the N100, 000.00. When contacted, the PublicRelations Officer of the university, Mr Harrison Osarenren, confirmed the report, saying "with the arrest, we will try and rid the system of bad eggs."
However her fiance Tunde Ijaduola has been embroiled in lots of controversy and accusations.He bared his mind in an interview
On Bisi's Jeep and Property
I didnt take Bisi's property. I don't think it is a proper thing for family members to be fighting me for Bisi's property less than 24 hours after Bisi's death when we should be mourning her.
Bisi died at age 27 and it is sad.
I am sending the Honda Pilot (vehicle) back to them, sadly enough Bisi's parents do not have issues with me but her extended family members.
Please note I have given them time and place to pick the car.
On the Accusation that he went back to pack Bisi's belongings while she was ill
I came back to Nigeria on October 24th 2012.
Bisi and I left the Ikorodu flat on October 26th 2012 and till now (as I speak), I have never been to the Ikorodu apartment I rented for her. It is shocking what I am hearing. When I meet Bisi, she was living in Ajao Estateand I was the one who rented the Ikorodu apartment forher.
On accusations that he was "hiding" Bisi while she was ill
I had to change Bisi's numbers because she needed rest. When she was ill people kept calling her for work.
His Opinion on the Cause of Bisi's Illness
It is sad that Bisi died the way she did. One of the main issues between me and her family was that when Bisi's sickness dragged on, I went spiritual and we were told her problems were spiritual but her family didn't allow us to take her for spiritual care.
"I Loved Bisi"
I loved Bisi till she died and she loved me. What property of bisi will I take? Please go and ask about me. I am from a good family background and we are comfortable. My father retired as a permanent secretary in Lagos and I have a thriving car business.
On reconciling to his ex-wife after Bisi's death
All that is crap! Till Bisi died she was my wife and I will forever cherish her.
Bisi's death is so sad. May her soul rest in peace. We hope that all family issues are settled as soon as possible.
