Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
When Heidi Klum announced her retirement as Victoria's Secret's top model in September, all eyes turned to Adriana Lima — not that that doesn't happen regularly — the likely successor to inherit Klum's wings as the lingerie brand's "head angel." It's a suggestion the Brazilian-born beauty brushes aside. "I don't consider myself head angel. I think each one of us has a different personality," Lima says.
Still, she was chosen to wear the $2 million Fantasy Bra at this year's peekaboo parade in NYC. It's no small honor, considering the supermodel, 29, missed last year's show to give birth to daughter Valentina with husband Marko Jaric...
We Are the World recording session
More than 70 stars came together Monday to lend their voices to a remake of "We Are the World" to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti.

Wednesday was a rough night for reality-TV junkies. First, for a rendition of "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" that wouldn't even stir the dirt on Dusty Springfield's grave, American Idol viewers dissed and dismissed Stephanie Edwards rather than the increasingly unbearable (yet undeniably sweet) Sanjaya. Then, Tyra and Co. gave the Ugg boot to drop-dead gorgeous Felicia after she failed to enliven a shoot in which she portrayed a literal fashion victim. Do you think it's too late for me to start a hunger strike until she's brought back? I mean, I could stand to lose a few pounds anyway. Next week on Idol, the contestants will be coached by an artist who they might actually have heard of (sorry, Lulu) Gwen Stefani. The Hollaback Girl will then perform "The Sweet Escape" with Akon during the results show. Personally, I would've done "Don't Speak" and dedicated it to moody Simon.
Christina Aguilera, Rascal Flatts and the cast of Broadway's Jersey Boys will all perform live from Times Square during Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve 2007, on ABC.... Saturday Night Live has added chart-topping hip-hop artist Akon to its Dec. 9 outing, which already offers Annette Bening as host and Gwen Stefani as a musical guest.... Mary J. Blige was the big winner at Monday's Billboard Music Awards, grabbing nine wins, including female R&B artist of the year and R&B/hip-hop album of the year. Other winners include every one of us who didn't have to watch Paris host.
