Julia Roberts Tops "Most Beautiful" List

Julia Roberts has topped People magazine’s "Most Beautiful" list. This is the actress’ fourth time as the cover girl of the much anticipated yearly issue. This year though she’s been relegated to a tiny photograph in the top right corner of the cover, having been bumped off by Sandra Bullock holding her new baby boy. According to the magazine the mother of three is a timeless beauty who gets more beautiful with age. Her pal George Clooney sums up nicely why Roberts tops the list. He says, “There's a reason why Julia is a timeless beauty, and it has nothing to do with the way she looks. It has everything to do with who she is.” Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, and Ashley Greene are also included on the list. [People]

Alexa Ray Joel Gets a Nose Job

Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley's daughter Alexa Ray has confirmed she’s had a nose job. The 24-year-old says, “I was thinking about getting this for years.” The aspiring musician, who unfortunately was not born with her mother’s good looks, says her nose "always bothered me a little bit. I was self-conscious of pictures taken from the side. To some people that's vain, but at the end of the day, we all want to feel pretty." Joel says she’s glad she’s waited until now to have the procedure. She says, “Would it have been smart to get this procedure last year? No. I didn't know who I was." Last year Alex Ray was rushed to hospital after attempting suicide. Now she’s in a much happier, better place and says, "I feel really good." [Huffington Post]

Kelly Clarkson is apparently extremely pissed off after one of her demo tracks was leaked onto the Internet recently. Clarkson is pointing her finger at hackers for releasing the unheard track “Cleopatra,” and even called them "sneaky little trolls." Clarkson Tweeted: "Cleopatra is NOT a song on my next record! It was written for another artist! I have no idea how it leaked, it's a rough demo, unfinished! I'm so tired of disrespecting, lying, sneaky little trolls that pretend to be human." Hot damn.

Somewhere Ryan Leaf is Smiling

Former first overall draft pick and current disappointment to his family JaMarcus Russell is expected to be cut by the Oakland Raiders just three years after entering the NFL. Despite pocketing $39 million and a "wish you weren't here" post card from Al Davis, Russell will have to look back on his career with tears of failure as he now becomes the first player to rival San Diego superbust Ryan Leaf on various "Worst Draft Pick Ever" lists.

Dedicated Halo 2 Fans Keep the Dream Alive

On April 15th, Microsoft terminated Xbox Live support for the original Xbox console, marking the end of online multiplayer for many older games. However, a group of Halo 2 players have refused to give up online play by leaving their consoles on and connected since then. Overheating consoles and dropped connections have taken their toll, but at present, more than a dozen weirdos are still clinging to their last breath of Halo 2 online. Someone should give these guys a copy of Halo 3. They might dig it. [CNET]

Apple Will Likely Announce the New iPhone on June 7th

The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 will start on June 7th in San Francisco. Sure, you might hear the words "Worldwide Developers Conference" and start to yawn, but in Apple parlance we're looking at a likely announcement of a new iPhone (the 3GS was shown at last year's event) and maybe a sneak peak at a new version of OS X.
