It's sort of surprising that Aguilera is selling her house now, after such a prolonged battle with ex-hubby Jordam Bratman to get him to move out!

Less than a year ago, you couldn’t hear the name Selena Gomez without hearing about Demi Lovato.

By Mariela Rosario | 02/12/2010 - 10:24

America Ferrera sat down with her best friend Amber Tamblyn for a refreshingly honest interview running now in Bust magazine, and boy did she open up.
