Rihanna and Chris Brown are moving in together.
The 'Umbrella' singer - who has been looking at multi-million dollar mansion in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles - is planning to set up home with Chris as soon as she chooses a property.
Gossip website X17Online reports: "Once Rihanna moves in to her new pad, Chris Brown will be joining her!"
Rihanna, 21, was spotted looking at properties in the exclusive area - where celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Richie and Cameron Diaz live - on Monday (23.03.09).
Among the houses she viewed were a $6.5 million four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom property with glass walls, a swimming pool, outdoor theatre and a large garden.
The singer also visited Christina Aguilera's former home, which boasts four bedrooms and seven bathrooms and costs $6.9 million.
Her next stop was Jerry Seinfeld's old house, which is on the market for $6.2 million and has three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a gym and swimming pool.
Real estate agent Russ Filice said: "The house has incredible views, a contemporary pool and is very private.
"Rihanna has just started her search for a house. She was in a great mood. Her questions were centered around her lifestyle in the house - how she could entertain, how private it is."
Chris has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats following his alleged attack on Rihanna last month.
He is yet to enter a plea and is due in court for an arraignment hearing on April 6. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
Nick Cannon wants to give his wife Mariah Carey a "bald eagle".
The US rapper - who married the 'Touch My Body' singer last April - has revealed he is planning to give his wife a surprise gift for her 39th birthday on Friday (27.03.09).
But Mariah might be in for a shock, because as well being an endangered species, a "bald eagle" is also a slang term for someone with shaved pubic hair.
When asked what he was going to buy Mariah, Nick laughed: "I think I was going to get her a bald eagle or something. Yeah, they sell them bald eagles still right?"
Impressed by his own quip, Nick, 28, has named himself the "chairman of comedy".
He laughed: "Here's how we do it. I'm the chairman of comedy. Like any joke, I get money off of anybody telling jokes, from any joke ever told."
Nick is set to host the upcoming series of US TV show 'America's Got Talent'.
Just recently we heard how Jennifer Aniston is single once again after dumping her toyboy lover John Mayer who, it seems, would rather spend time on Twitter than with her.
We heard how he had been avoiding her – ignoring her calls and shunning her emails. And just when we thought Jen had finally found someone who could begin to match up to Brad Pitt. How wrong could we be?
As the woman who brought us the loveable Rachel Green in Friends, we couldn’t help but feel happy for her when she married Brad in 2000 – even if we were all green with envy. We watched their fairytale romance progress and then sadly crash and burn. Hollywood’s golden couple were no more.
When Brad and Angelina Jolie became official in 2005 after first meeting on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, our hearts went out to Jen; even more so when Ange announced that she was pregnant with their first child Shiloh Nouvel. Seeing pictures of the happy family plastered on every magazine going must have hurt.
Jen seemed to turn a corner when she met Vince Vaughn while filming the ironically titled film The Break Up. Talking about him at the time she said: “He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh. It was great.” However, as bad luck again would have it, the pair split in 2006 after more than a year together. Jen said that the relationship had ran its course.
In 2008, she met musician Mayer, 31, at an Oscar party. We had high hopes for her, but after a whirlwind romance, it looks like Jen’s desperation to be a mum gave Mayer cold feet. At 40, Jen feels her biological clock is ticking at a rapid pace, with sources saying that she regrets not starting a family with Brad when she had the chance.
Experiencing such heart-ache has made Jen much more aware, if a little cynical, of relationships. Speaking to Vogue in 2008, she said: “Whoever said everything has to be forever, that's setting your hopes too high. It's too much pressure. And I think if you put that pressure on yourself—because I did! Fairy tale! It has to be the right one!—that's unattainable."

Gisele Bundchen has taken her dog on honeymoon.
The supermodel was seen at Los Angeles airport with her new husband Tom Brady - who she wed in a secret ceremony last month - and tiny pet dog as they prepared to jet to her hometown of Horizontina in southern Brazil.
The couple have flown to South America partly for a belated honeymoon, but also to celebrate the 83rd birthday of Gisele's grandmother.
A source said: "The trip was a chance for Tom to meet Gisele's relatives, including her sisters, aunts and uncles, and to enjoy a bit of a party. Gisele loves her animals and couldn't bear to leave the pup behind."
The trip was a chance for Tom to meet Gisele's relatives, including her sisters, aunts and uncles, and to enjoy a bit of a party. Gisele loves her animals and couldn't bear to leave the pup behind.
According to reports, 28-year-old Gisele will now be parted from Tom as she is heading to Sao Paolo for work, while the New England Patriots quarterback must return to the US.
Gisele recently spoke about her desire to start a family with Tom, who already has an 18-month-old son from a previous relationship.
She said: "I want to have a big family. My parents have been together for 36 years, and that is what I want.
"I love kids. It's amazing that I have the opportunity to hang out with my stepson all the time."
Jennifer Aniston is being considered for a role in the next James Bond film.
The 40-year-old actress - who recently expressed an interest in appearing in the British spy film franchise - is set to be offered a screen test for the follow up to 'Quantum of Solace' which will star Daniel Craig as James Bond.
Jennifer was speaking to Daniel and his girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell and they seemed to be getting on like a house on fire. They looked like old friends and would make a gorgeous pairing on the big screen.
A source at EON, the production company which makes the James Bond films, said: "Jennifer has all the qualities we are looking for in a Bond girl. She has to be beautiful but she also needs to have brains.
"It helps if she's athletic and able to keep up with intense stunt work a Bond movie demands.
"It is likely she'll be called in to meet producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson soon."
Jennifer previously said of her Bond aspirations: "I get offered funny, quirky, pretty roles. But I'd love to do an action movie. James Bond - glamour. Daniel Craig. Sh*t-loads of fun."
Jennifer quickly bonded with Daniel when she met him at a Night Before Party ahead of this years Oscars.
A source said: "Jennifer was speaking to Daniel and his girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell and they seemed to be getting on like a house on fire. They looked like old friends and would make a gorgeous pairing on the big screen."
Rihanna is to star in a remake of 'The Bodyguard'.
The 21-year-old pop star - whose boyfriend Chris Brown has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats following his alleged assault on her - has reportedly been looking at various scripts in New York, including a remake of the hit 90s film which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
Before the situation with Chris, Rihanna was getting a lot of scripts. She has been wanting to do movies for a while now.
If the film goes ahead, Rihanna's character will be a young and sexy take
A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Before the situation with Chris, Rihanna was getting a lot of scripts. She has been wanting to do movies for a while now."
If the film goes ahead, Rihanna's character will be a "young and sexy take" on the popstar previously played by Whitney.
The Barbados-born beauty will star alongside 'GI Joe' actor Channing Tatum who will play her on-screen love interest.
Rihanna is also believed to be considering working on a 'Charlie's Angels' sequel and a film project with Justin Timberlake.
The 'Umbrella' singer is currently easing herself back into work following Chris' arrest.
Meanwhile, Rihanna has been spotted enjoying herself with friends following the alleged attack.
On Friday night (13.03.09) Rihanna joined mentor Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce Knowles for dinner at New York restaurant Spotted Pig. The following evening (14.03.09) she relaxed with friends at eatery Da Silvano.
A source said: "Rihanna was dining with five friends and a security guard. It was a bit odd - she was wearing sunglasses inside at 11pm - like that was going to stop people from noticing her! But you know, she really looked good. She seemed happy - like she's finally healing."
Gwen Stefani stole her son Zuma's name from her No Doubt bandmate.
The 'Wind It Up' singer - who has another son Kingston James McGregor, two, with her husband Gavin Rossdale - wanted a "quirky" name for her six-month-old child and got the idea of Zuma from her bandmate Tom Dumont's wife Mieke.
She said: "I kind of stole it from him. I didn't steal it, I mean his wife didn't want it. It was just one of those things that just happened. I just wanted Zuma to have a little bit of a quirky name."
The unusual name came up when Gwen was discussing possible baby names with Mieke - who was pregnant at the same time.
Zuma was mentioned because Zuma Beach, California, is close to where Gwen and Gavin live.
Despite doting on her little boys, the 39-year-old popstar has admitted she misses the laidback lifestyle of being on tour.
She told radio show 'Mojo in the Morning': "Kingston has a really big opinion about what we do, so we'll figure it out. We'll pretty much be going to all the zoos and different places on our days off. But some days I miss the old selfish touring days where you just sleep all day, but those days are gone. I just need to accept it!"

Anna Nicole Smith's former lawyer and boyfriend Howard K. Stern has been charged in relation to her death.
The Los Angeles District Attorney's office has confirmed Howard and two other doctors were, on Thursday (12.03.09), charged with conspiring to supply Anna - who died of combined drug intoxication in February 2007 aged just 39 - with drugs.
It has been alleged Howard, Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich gave drugs to Anna between June 5 2004 and January 26 2007.
They have all been charged with unlawfully prescribing a controlled substance during the time stated.
Sandeep and Khristine have also been charged with one count of gaining an opiate prescription by "fraud, deceit or misrepresentation" and with one count of getting an opiate prescription using a false name or address.
Both Sandeep and Howard - who was Anna's lover at the time of her death and once claimed to be the father of her daughter Dannielynn - have been charged with one count of "prescribing, administering or dispensing a controlled substance to an addict". Khristine was also charged with this offence in a separate count.
Each was given bail at $20,000 and arraignment dates have not yet been set.
Howard has previously denied any illegal activity in relation to Anna and drugs.
Anna died after she was found unresponsive in a room at Hollywood's Hard Rock casino.
Her death came just months after her son Daniel died from accidentally taking a lethal combination of drugs.
He passed away in September 2006 in his mother's Bahamas hospital room while he was visiting his new sister Dannielynn.
Nicole Richie threw a huge 30th birthday party for her rocker boyfriend Joel Madden this week.
The socialite held the bash on the private terrace of the Sunset Tower hotel in Hollywood. She invited around 35 of their friends to celebrate with Joel - who reached the landmark age on March 11.
They were beaming in the soft terrace lighting
An onlooker said: "There was a lot of laughing and even some speeches. Nicole and Joel were nestled in the centre of the big group and looked as happy as they could be to be celebrating with their friends. They were beaming in the soft terrace lighting."
The highlight of the evening was when Joel was presented with a huge birthday cake, accompanied by a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday'.
The source added: "It was so big I'm surprised it didn't set off the fire alarms."
Although they were not members iof the party group, Sharon Stone and Drew Barrymore were both spotted dining at the Sunset Tower on the same night.
Nicole, 27, and Joel recently announced they are expecting their second child together. They already have a 14-month-old daughter Harlow.
Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer have split up.
The 40-year-old actress was reportedly dumped by her musician boyfriend after she returned from her visit to the UK to promote new movie 'Marley and Me'.
A source said: "They had some disagreements and decided to not continue to see each other. Jennifer is moving on with her life like she always does. She seems happy."
While the beauty was doing her promotional European tour, the 31-year-old singer remained in the US to concentrate on his own career.
The split comes just weeks after John joined the 'He's Just Not That Into You' actress at the prestigious Oscars ceremony and follows reports he was planning to propose with a Â£2 million ring.
They had some disagreements and decided to not continue to see each other. Jennifer is moving on with her life like she always does. She seems happy.
This is not the first time the John, 31, has separated from Jennifer, 40.
Last summer he cooled things off between them so he could work out his true feelings.
At the time he said: "I ended a relationship to be alone because I don't want to waste anybody's time if something's not right."
Jennifer, 40, recently admitted she didn't expect their romance to last forever.
The former 'Friends' star - whose ex-husband is Brad Pitt - said: "Who ever said that every relationship has to last forever? That's hoping for too much. I think every relationship is a world unto itself."
Freida Pinto is being lined up to star in the next James Bond film.
The 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress has reportedly been invited for a screen test for the next film in the spy series by producer Barbara Broccoli.
Freida, 24, was first noticed when bosses were casting Bond girls for the last film 'Quantum of Solace', in which Daniel Craig plays the suave spy.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Freida came to the attention of the team when they were casting 'Quantum of Solace'. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent.
But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel's arm.
Earlier this month, it was revealed Broccoli is also keen to sign up 'Slumdog Millionaire' director Danny Boyle to helm the next movie.
If Boyle lands the job it is believed he would be keen to reunite with Freida.
The source added: "Danny is favourite to direct the next movie, which would increase Freida's chances of a starring role."
Freida has been offered a number of high profile contracts with fashion houses since starring in the film - which won eight Oscars - and is reported to have signed up to star in Woody Allen's next project.

Angelina Jolie and Katie Holmes are throwing a tea party for their daughters.
The former 'Dawson's Creek' star has reportedly invited Angelina and her eldest girls Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, 2, for tea and cupcakes with her two-year-old Suri at their New York home.
A source said: "Katie loves entertaining and spoke to Angelina about having an at-home tea party with cupcakes for the girls."
Another source adds: "It's something she has wanted to do for ages. Because of security reasons, Katie can't have just any child over to her home.
"But with celebrity tots like Shiloh and Zahara, there's no problem."
Katie, 30, and Angelina, 33, have both relocated their families to New York while they work on upcoming films.
They started planning the playdate in Los Angeles in January when Angelina and her partner Brad Pitt met Katie and her husband Tom Cruise at a private Golden Globes after-party at the Sunset Tower Hotel.
Tom, 46, and Brad, 45, first met when they co-starred in 1994 film 'Interview with the Vampire', but failed to stay in touch over the years.
Since the film, their careers and social circles have become so different, they rarely see each other. But at the party both talked at length about their children and they agreed to get their little girls together.
A source said: "Since the film, their careers and social circles have become so different, they rarely see each other. But at the party both talked at length about their children and they agreed to get their little girls together."
Katie and Tom are said to be keen to introduce Suri to children her own age because her adopted siblings - Connor, 14, and Isabella, 16 - are much older.
An insider said: "Suri's a very shy young lady. Even when Tom or Katie have taken her to a park or beach and tried to introduce her to other kids for a little playtime, it hasn't worked. She's very clingy."
Jessica Simpson has asked Tiger Woods for golfing lessons.
The singer-and-actress - who has been sporting a seemingly fuller figure of late - wants to embrace a healthier lifestyle and so asked the US sportsman for tips.
A source said: "Jessica is taking it seriously. She even asked if Tiger Woods would give her some pointers, but he's been busy with his new baby."
As well as helping her to get in shape, Jessica, 28, thinks learning to play golf will bring her closer to her American football star boyfriend Tony Romo.
Jessica is taking it seriously. She even asked if Tiger Woods would give her some pointers, but he's been busy with his new baby.
Tony is a huge fan of the pastime, so Jessica thinks it could be the perfect way for them to spent time together.
She has already signed up for a set of lessons, and has splashed out $8,400 on a Louis Vuitton golf bag and clubs to ensure she looks stylish as she learns.
Amy Winehouse is ready to quit music to reunite with husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
The 'Rehab' singer is prepared to do whatever it takes to win back ex-convict Blake - who started divorce proceedings while in prison after seeing Amy romantically linked to other men while holidaying in the Caribbean - and would even walk away from her successful singing career.
Writing on her page on social networking website Facebook, she wrote: "Amy would chuck it all in for 'im indoors.
She swiftly followed it with another message, saying: "Nothing is worth as much as Blake."
Friends of the troubled 26-year-old star replied urging her to move on from Blake, who recently moved his 17-year-old rumoured girlfriend Francesca Morralee into his London home.
Amy would chuck it all in for 'im indoors.
She swiftly followed it with another message, saying: Nothing is worth as much as Blake.
One wrote: "He ain't worth it."
In a heart-rending final note, Amy said: "Where's my oblivious Blakey boy?"
Just a few days ago it was reported Francesca left her Â£11,000-a-year Bancroft school in Woodford, Essex, to set up home with 27-year-old Blake.
A source said: "Francesca wants to leave the area and have a fresh start with Blake at his place in Camden."
In an effort to compete with her younger love rival, Amy - who has been battling drug addictions -has gained weight and is working hard to transform her image.
A friend of the star said: "Amy is like a different woman since returning from St Lucia. For a start off, she's all woman and no longer possesses the body of a pre-pubescent teenager. Since keeping away from the drugs, Amy's finding new pleasures in food - something she used to be pretty indifferent about. She's regained a few of her curves and has gone up a few dress sizes."

Have Rihanna and Chris Brown just completely forgotten they’re supposed to be embroiled in a bitter court case over whether of not said Brown beat up the lovely singer?
Well, I’ll answer that for you shall I? Yes they blinking well have as they decide to release a duet together to prove they are very much still ‘in love’ - crikey, watch out Sonny and Cher!
According to sources in the US, the reconciled couple are heading into the studio to record a duet for Brown’s new album - well I suppose that might be the only way Brown ever shifts his records from now on…
The couple’s show of unity comes just weeks after Brown allegedly assaulted Rihanna in a Lamborghini he’d rented, leaving her bloody and bruised. In the weeks that have passed, he’s since been charged with assault and making criminal threats and faces over four years in jail if found guilty.
However, despite what the police, press and, well everybody is saying, the pair seem to be completely oblivious to their impending trial and decided to try and cash in on the headlines as much as they can, by recording a bloody record!
Meanwhile, Brown reportedly refused to leave LA after his hearing last week to spend the weekend with Rihanna - and the couple remain “very much in love”, according to pals.
Miley Cyrus suffers from a heart condition.
The 16-year-old singer has tachycardia - meaning her heart rate which exceeds the range of a normal resting rate - and admits she worries about the complaint when she performs live.
She says in her new autobiography 'Miles to Go': "The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous. It won't hurt me, but it does bother me. There is never a time onstage when I'm not thinking about my heart."
The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous. It won't hurt me, but it does bother me. There is never a time onstage when I'm not thinking about my heart.
Health problems aren't the only subject Miley has spoken about in her tell-all tome.
An entire chapter is dedicated to 'Prince Charming', the nickname she uses to refer to her first love.
However, Miley is keen to play down reports she is talking about ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, a member of The Jonas Brothers.
The 'Hannah Montana' star said: "I didn't necessarily talk about 'dating a Jonas'. I talked about dating and who I really feel my first love is, and everyone wants to put a name with the code.
"But really I wouldn't use a code if I thought it was obvious. So no-one really knows who he is."
The '7 Things I Hate About You' singer wrote her autobiography to tell her story to her fans.
She concluded: "I want to be the one who finally got to say my opinion. It's really important for the fans to feel that they're like you more than just someone they can look up to and someone they feel like they can be friends with."

Jessica Simpson is worried her boyfriend will never propose.
The singer-and-actress has been dating American football quarterback Tony Romo for around 16 months, and is becoming increasingly frustrated at his unwillingness to commit.
A source claims Jessica said: "I know Tony loves me, but I don't know if he'll ever propose."
Jessica, 28, was convinced Tony, also 28, would pop the question on Valentine's Day (14.02.09) and was left devastated when he failed to do so.
A source said: "Jessica was really hoping she was going to get an engagement ring. She wanted one for Christmas, then she thought maybe New Year's Eve (31.12.08). Her last hope was that Tony would propose on Valentine's Day - but he didn't."
Jessica was not happy. He just wasn't picking up on the fact that she was starting to lose her patience.
The star was also said to be furious after Tony took her for a meal at exclusive New York restaurant The Waverly Inn but spent much of the evening texting on his phone.
A witness said: "Jessica was not happy. He just wasn't picking up on the fact that she was starting to lose her patience."
Jessica has been discussing her relationship woes with her 24-year-old sister Ashlee - who has three-month-old son Bronx Mowgli with her husband Pete Wentz - and her friends, who are also concerned Tony will never make her his wife.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "Ashlee has always been the more realistic, the more practical of the two sisters. And Ashlee knows how much her sister wants to be married and have a baby of her own. But as wonderful as Tony is, he is not the marrying kind - probably not for years."
Seth Rogen has tantrums when he can't eat.
The 'Knocked Up' star has shed 30lbs for his role in new comic book adaptation 'The Green Hornet' - in which he plays the crime-fighting vigilante of the same name - but doesn't think he will be able to maintain his new slimline figure when filming ends because dieting has made him so emotional.
I lost the weight for a role, but I don't know if I'll keep it off
He said: "I lost the weight for a role, but I don't know if I'll keep it off. That's the big question. I have a lot of tantrums. I want my food. I cry for no reason."
The actor is adamant he wouldn't have lost the weight if the role didn't require it and admits he feels like a "sell-out" for trying to alter his body shape.
He recently said: "I'm selling out guys. It's the lamest thing ever. It's for 'The Green Hornet' - the only reason. There's no other reason. I think it serves the movie."
Despite winning praise for his new figure, Seth has previously insisted his long-term girlfriend Lauren Miller is indifferent about his new look.
He said: "She's stuck by me through thick and thin - literally! She claims she doesn't like me any more now than when I was heavier, but I think that's completely not true."
Claudia Schiffer won't work with designers who are nasty to her model friends.
The German supermodel rose to fame in the 90s and became such good pals with many of her contemporaries she was, and still is, as concerned about their careers as her own.
She said: "Yes, there was competition because all of the jobs were divided between us, but we all stuck together and stood up for each other.
"We even used to make group decisions not to do a job if a particular designer had mistreated one of us."
Claudia, 38, also revealed she isn't concerned about ageing and is vehemently opposed to using cosmetic procedures to keep her looks and carry on working.
I have always worked out, and I've gone through different phases of yoga, but the combination of Pilates three days a week with yoga is incredible.
Speaking about Botox, which is used to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, she said: "It's poison in my skin and no one knows the long term effects. I'm far more scared of that than a wrinkle on my forehead.
"All of my friends are my age and we are all ageing at the same time. We talk about it and moan, but it doesn't bother me."
Instead, the model relies on a stringent fitness regime to maintain her figure.
She told Vogue magazine: "I have always worked out, and I've gone through different phases of yoga, but the combination of Pilates three days a week with yoga is incredible."

Rihanna's family hope Chris Brown is jailed.
Chris, 19, has been charged with two felonies - assault and making criminal threats - for his alleged attack on the 'Umbrella' singer and her loved ones hope he receives the maximum sentence of four years and eight months in prison if found guilty.
One relative said: "It's about time. He should be in jail. He deserves whatever he gets."
Chris reportedly punched, bit and choked Rihanna until she was unconscious after they began arguing in his rented silver Lamborghini on February 8.
Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty has spoken out about the incident, claiming no punishment could excuse Chris' behaviour.
Speaking about how he felt when Chris was charged, Ronald said: "I don't know how to react. Chris is a very talented guy. I still think he's a little immature for Rihanna. Justice can never be served in this situation. He can't feel the pain she felt.
I would tell Chris, 'Don't ever try again, don't even think about it.' I'm hurt and disturbed at that scenario.
"I don't believe in hitting a woman. I hope everything works out better for them. I don't feel happy or sad. He's in the court's hands. Let justice prevail."
Ronald has not been in regular contact with his daughter since the incident, but says he is still supporting her.
He told Us Weekly magazine: "I can't get on to her. Her mother can't get on to her, her brother told me she changed her email. Somebody has a stranglehold on her. I'm lost.
"Anyone in my family, I'm there for them. All of my kids, I'm there for them. Rihanna's no exception. All of them I would support."
Asked what message he had for Chris, he replied: "I would tell Chris, 'Don't ever try again, don't even think about it.' I'm hurt and disturbed at that scenario."
Although Chris and Rihanna initially split following the reported incident, they are now believed to have married at P. Diddy's Miami home last weekend.
Rihanna's representatives have refused to confirm or deny the allegation, saying: "We aren't able to offer anything right now but will keep you posted if that changes."
Madonna has been named the Worst Dressed Celebrity of 2009.
The '4 Minutes' singer topped the poll by animal rights group PETA because she continues to wear fur.
In a statement, PETA said: "When you see Madonna in fur, you realise why nobody has copied her style since 1984.
"We know she's on the prowl for a young cur, but someone needs to tell Madonna that wearing fur doesn't make you a cougar."
Other celebrities on the list include Kanye West, Kate Moss, Mary J Blige, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Elizabeth Hurley and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Despite her unwanted title, Madonna is launching a new fashion line.
The 'Material Girl' singer has teamed up with designer Ed Hardy to create the "innovative" range, which includes tattoo-inspired T-shirts and diamante-encrusted bodices.
Brand owner Christian Audigier approached the 50-year-old singer after he spotted her wearing Ed's tattoo-print clothes.

He reportedly offered Madonna a six-figure sum to design her own line and even organised a private catwalk show to inspire her.
The musician was seen arriving at Audigier's office last month and will reportedly put the finishing touches to her range this month.
Madonna designed a "cheap and trendy" range for Swedish clothing company H+M in March 2007.

Ashley Cole was arrested over an alleged confrontation with police in the early hours of this morning.
The Chelsea footballer reportedly swore at officers as he left Collection nightclub at 2am.
After three hours in custody, Ashley, 27, was apparently fined £80 and sent home.
‘A man was arrested in Brompton Road, South Kensington, on suspicion of
being drunk and disorderly,’ says a Scotland Yard spokesman.
‘He was taken to a central London police station where he
was later issued with a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and
disorderly and released at 5.37am.'
Ashley's wife Cheryl Cole, 25, is currently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with nine other celebrities in aid of the BBC's Comic Relief.
Lindsay Lohan is feuding with Katie Holmes.
The 'Mean Girls' star was expecting to appear on the cover of the April edition of America's Glamour magazine and was left fuming when the coveted front page was given to Katie.
A source said: "Lindsay did a Madonna-themed photo shoot and was totally under the impression it would be the cover.
"Her Marilyn Monroe shoot for New York Magazine made her relevant when she did it, she thought the same would happen this time. Only she wasn't on the cover, Katie was, and she's mad at her now."
Lindsay, 22, donned a vintage wedding dress, white gloves and jewellery to recreate the '4 Minutes' star's performance of 'Like A Virgin' at the 1984 MTV Video Music Awards as part of the magazine's American Icons: Seven Decades of Rule Breakers, Risk Takers and Style Makers photo shoot.
Despite her gripe, magazine sources insist they never planned to put her on the cover.
An insider said: "If that was Lindsay's impression, it was a mistake. She was always going to be inside the magazine."
Other stars taking part in the Icon shoot included Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn, Alicia Keys as Michelle Obama and Hayden Panettiere as aviator Amelia Earhart.
If that was Lindsay's impression, it was a mistake. She was always going to be inside the magazine.
Katie is not the first celebrity Lindsay has waged war against.
She is rumoured to have scrawled obscene graffiti about 'Lost In Translation' star Scarlett Johansson on a New York nightclub bathroom wall.
She was also engaged in a war of words with 'Lizzy Maguire' star Hilary DuffÂ after they dated singer Aaron Carter at the same time in 2004, though they later patched up their differences.
Her appearance in US sitcom 'Ugly Betty' was shortened to four episodes from six amid rumours she had argued with its main star America Ferrera.
Rihanna's blood-soaked dress is among the evidence being investigated by police for their case against Chris Brown.
The 21-year-old singer's $11,000 Gucci garment has been handed over to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office following Brown's alleged attack on Rihanna on February 8.
A source said: "The police took Rihanna's dress into evidence because it had bloodstains on it."
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has refused to comment on the claims.
Rihanna is believed to have requested an emergency protection order just hours after the alleged assault, to prevent Brown from contacting her. The order expired after five days.
Santa Monica-based criminal defence attorney Alec Rose said: "It is standard practice for police to ask the domestic violence victim at the scene of the attack whether they would like an emergency protective order keeping the attacker away."
The police took Rihanna's dress into evidence because it had bloodstains on it.
Brown was charged with making criminal threats and released on $50,000 bail following the incident and is due to attend an arraignment in Los Angeles today (05.03.09).
Rihanna reportedly told police he beat her and choked her until she was unconscious.
It has previously been reported Chris' rented Lamborghini - were the altercation took place - had traces of blood in it when it was impounded by police.
Meanwhile, reports claim Chris' attorney are conducting talks with the District Attorney which could see him enter a plea bargain in a bid to avoid going to prison.
The case was handed to the District Attorney yesterday (04.03.09), and Brown's' lawyer Mark Geragos has been discussing the matter with prosecutors since Monday (02.03.09).
It has been suggested his legal team want to strike a deal which would see him remain free if he pleads guilty to a misdemeanour, although it is unknown whether prosecutors are willing to compromise.
Rihanna did not file charges against Brown and the pair are believed to have married in secret at rapper P. Diddy's Miami mansion.
A source said: "Rihanna never had any intention of ending it with Chris. It's partly because she cares about him a lot. But another big part is that she can't bear the thought of him with another girl."

Britney Spears kicked off her tour in New Orleans last night (03.03.09).
The troubled pop princess descended from the ceiling of the New Orleans Arena dressed as a ringmaster to perform the title track of her album 'Circus'.
The tour is Britney's first run of arena shows in nearly five years and featured jugglers, clowns, ninjas and aerial acrobats.
The singer showed off her newly-buff body in a series of slinky, revealing costumes, including thigh-high black boots and a feathered cheetah headdress.
However, Britney lip-synched on almost all her songs.
The Pussycat Dolls warmed up the crowd from 8pm, playing 40 minutes of their hits including 'Don't Cha', 'When I Grow Up' and 'Bottle Pop'.
The crowd erupted when Britney appeared onstage at 9.20pm and didn't stop screaming until her encore performance of 'Womanizer' 90 minutes later.
She performed 'Baby One More Time', 'Piece of Me' and 'Gimme More' but refused to speak to the crowd until the very end of the show, when she said: "Thank you New Orleans, I love u guys. Did y'all have a good time? Thank you so much."
Thank you New Orleans, I love u guys. Did y'all have a good time? Thank you so much.
The tour will take in 25 US dates but there is reportedly already tension brewing between Britney and her ex-husband Kevin Federline, who is being paid Â£3,500 a week to join the singer so she can have their sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two, by her side.
Kevin had promised to support Britney during her last dress rehearsal on Monday (02.03.09) but he abandoned the singer and went to a New Orleans casino with friends.
A source said: "On Monday, when Britney was preparing, you might have thought he would have been at her side with the boys.
"Instead he spent the night in Harrah's Casino, hitting the blackjack tables and knocking back drinks with three pals."
'The Circus Starring Britney Spears' moves to Atlanta tomorrow (05.03.09
Justin Timberlake says John Mayer is the love child of Macy Gray and a bear.
Justin was about to launch into an impression of the 'Gravity' singer when he likened John's vocal talents to a cross between Macy and a growling bear.
Appearing on the premiere of US talk show 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon', Justin - who is good friends with John - said: "I imitate stars because I love them. How would I describe John Mayer? He sounds like if Macy Gray and Smokey Robinson, or actually, Smokey the Bear had a love child."

He then launched into a rendition of John's hit 'Daughter' with a live band, while the audience whooped and cheered.
Justin went on to joke about John's singing style, claiming the key to doing a good impression of the 'Gravity' singer was practicing your "solo face".
He explained: "He has the most amazing solo face. He contorts his face, it's like literally his tongue takes over."
The 'SexyBack' singer's impression of John left fellow guest Robert De Niro in hysterics.
This is not the first time Justin has impersonated another star.
Last year, he appeared on US talk show 'Saturday Night Live' where he performed a comedy version of Beyonce Knowles' hit 'Single Ladies'.
The 28-year-old singer donned a skin-tight leotard and high heels and performed an energetic dance routine in a spoof of the video to the song.
Usher insists Chris Brown should show "a bit of remorse" following allegations he assaulted Rihanna.
The R'n'B singer made the comments after seeing photographs of Chris smiling on a jet ski while on holiday in Miami.
Referring to a leaked police picture which apparently shows Rihanna with a bruised and cut face following the altercation, Usher said: "I'm a little disappointed in this.

After the other photo? C'mon, Chris. Have a little bit of remorse, man. The man is on a jet ski? Like, just relaxing in Miami?"
In the photographs, Chris is seen laughing in the sea and flexing his muscles.
Chris, 19, is accused of beating and choking Rihanna after they got into an argument in his rented silver Lamborghini on February 8.
He was charged with making criminal threats and released on $50,000 bail.
After initially separating, the couple are believed to have reconciled after holding crisis talks at P. Diddy's Miami home last weekend.
Although Rihanna has decided not to press charges, Los Angeles police have confirmed they are still investigating the case and have not handed it over to the district attorney.
Chris' arraignment hearing is currently scheduled for tomorrow (05.03.09)

U2 want Brad Pitt to star in a movie about their lives.
The band's guitarist The Edge thinks the Hollywood hunk would be the perfect person to portray him if a film about the Irish group was ever made.
Edge, 47, said: "We'd want it to be realistic, we don't want the usual things, so Brad Pitt would play me. We want to be realistic, you know, you don't want to do the Hollywood thing."
We'd want it to be realistic, we don't want the usual things, so Brad Pitt would play me. We want to be realistic, you know, you don't want to do the Hollywood thing.
Bono thinks only an Oscar winner could do him justice on the big screen.
He joked to British radio presenter Christian O'Connell: "Yes, I would say... who's another tall, skinny Irishman? Daniel Day Lewis would play me."
The band - who released their twelfth album 'No Line on the Horizon' last week - also admitted they have come close to splitting on several occasions since they formed in the 70s.
Bono, 48, believes the band - which also includes drummer Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton - hit a bad patch "every few years".
Edge confessed: "I do this thing probably about once every 10 years where I go OK, that's it, I've had enough."

Mariah Carey has been visiting a fertility clinic.
The 38-year-old singer and her husband Nick Cannon - who married last year following a whirlwind romance - were seen leaving a Beverly Hills' Southern California Reproductive Center last week, where they reportedly met with a prenatal specialist.
Nick and Mariah are trying anything and everything to conceive. After almost a year of trying to natural way, they visited a fertility clinic to help make their baby dream come true.
A source told gossip blogger Perez Hilton: "Nick and Mariah are trying anything and everything to conceive. After almost a year of trying to natural way, they visited a fertility clinic to help make their baby dream come true."
Mariah is said to be desperate to give birth before she turns 40 next March.
The renowned centre is one of the leading in vitro fertilisation (IVF) clinics in California.
Jennifer Lopez - who has one-year-old twins Max and Emme - is said to have been a previous patient.
The couple have made no secret of their desire to start a family, with Nick admitting he wants a large brood.
He said: "We'll multiply. That's what's got to happen."
Mariah has also revealed she is ready to become a mother, but finds the constant speculation about whether she is expecting tiresome.
She said: "I don't like to talk about it too much. I just think about it as the next phase. We'll see.
"I've changed my mind about becoming a mother because I'm with 'The One'. I think we would make good parents, and that we'd be able to figure out how to do it properly."
