Adam Levine is "People" Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive
This is no big surprise, since the info leaked last week, but "People" magazine has officially announced that ADAM LEVINE is this year's Sexiest Man Alive. CARSON DALY made the announcement last night on "The Voice".
Adam tells "People", quote, "As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn't really think that this was on the table. I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't, so that's cool."
The other guys honored in this year's issue include . . .
Kelly Clarkson is Pregnant
KELLY CLARKSON and her husband Brandon Blackstock are expecting their first child together. She announced it on Twitter, saying, quote, "I'm pregnant!!! Brandon and I are so excited! Best early Christmas present ever."

Prince William Wants a PlayStation4 . . . But He Doesn't Think His Wife Would Let Him Get One
Maybe those British royals aren't so different from us after all. PRINCE WILLIAM got a look at the new PlayStation4 during a charity event, and he was impressed. But that doesn't mean he gets to take one home.
He said, quote, "I'd like to get one, but I'm not sure how my wife would feel about it."
The World's Highest-Paid Musicians
The unstoppable list-makers at "Forbes" have released their annual rundown of The World's Highest-Paid Musicians. The estimates are based on total earnings from June of LAST year up through this past June.
So no recent tours would be included. It's annoying that the data isn't current . . . but that's what Forbes does. They have one measurement period, and they slowly release these lists over the rest of the year.
MADONNA topped the list with $125 million. A lot of that money came from her 2012 MDNA Tour. Like Madonna, most of the artists on the list made a bulk of their money from TOURING and SIDE BUSINESSES . . . not from actual music sales.
Here's the Top 10 list:
1. Madonna, $125 million
2. Lady Gaga, $80 million
3. Bon Jovi, $79 million
4. Toby Keith, $65 million
5. Coldplay, $64 million
6. Justin Bieber, $58 million
7. Taylor Swift, $55 million
8. Elton John, $54 million
9. A tie between Beyoncé and Kenny Chesney, with $53 million apiece.
Kanye Likes Kim Because She's Not After Him For His Money
On "Ellen" yesterday, KANYE WEST explained what attracted him to KIM KARDASHIAN. The fact that she has her own money was part of it.
He said, quote, "[When] I was at my lowest moments I could get on the phone with her. She would make me feel like I was here for a reason and I had something to say, and just support me through that.
"It's incredible to have a woman . . . that is not using you for money . . . because once you become like a multi-millionaire there's a certain type of women out there that they go for that, and they'll put on the whole act and everything."
