High School Musical
feature film and the comedy 17
with Matthew Perry
Cool Dudes Who Sing and Dance
What a year! Highlights: HSM2
rocked its debut (17 million viewers!), hit the big screen in Hairspray
, got to show off my abs on the cover of Rolling Stone
, and—thanks to our Hawaii vacation—I no longer have to pretend I'm not dating VH. Lowlight: All that gossip on the blogs—Yo, Perez! Cut me some slack! And I probably could have done without that YouTube montage of me dancing to "I Feel Pretty."
Daniel Radcliffe is filming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Seriously Rich Teens
The fifth Potter film came out this summer, but I also shattered my boyish image by getting naked on the London stage. Yes, I'm still single, and as I told Details
, "I think it would be very hard to go out with an actress, because they're mad.... They're all absolutely delightful. But completely barking."
is warming up backstage in yet another sold-out arena, then it's back to work on Hannah Montana
Hollywood Good Girls
I can't believe how insane (in a good way!) this year has been: an amazing tour, a No. 1 album and a No. 1 cable TV show—full of cool guest stars like Brooke Shields
! Plus, I watched my dad "dance" (ha!) on Dancing with the Stars
Hannah Montana: The Movie
The Jonas Brothers
My crazy dad!
is unwinding after wrapping up a hectic European tour
One-Name Pop Stars
This year, I settled into my L.A. pad. My third CD just went platinum, and I was nominated for four Grammys. Plus I'm a CoverGirl, baby! Bring on those free lip glosses. I also amped up my style. Hope you like my new look. And, yes, I'm single. Sure, I've hung out with Shia and Josh, but you know how it is—we're just friends. One '07 bummer: Broke my toe, stubbed it on a chair, but I'm better now and not slowing down.
Blake Lively is pondering whether to take a class at Columbia University next year
Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford
Beautiful People with Brains
Don't get me confused with my Gossip Girl
character. Sure, I love glamour, but I'm not such a fan of real-life gossip. (Note to paparazzi: Penn is a friend—we go way back. Enough with the Romance Watch already!)
I can't believe I actually told Cosmo Girl
, "Stars really are like anyone else. At the end of the day, Brad Pitt
poops—as handsome as he may be—and so does Angelina Jolie
. I'm still baffled by how odd this job is."
Chris Brown is on tour with Bow Wow
, Bow Wow, Lil Wayne
Future Kings of Pop
I switched things up this year. The sound on my new album Exclusive has a bit of an older vibe. I also got way more into acting—I did The O.C.
and hit the big screen (consider the yard stomped!). Oh, and did I mention I tore the roof off the VMAs and the Grammys? Watch out, JT.
is still working on releasing her long-awaited CD and getting ready to promote Fireflies in the Garden
, the movie she did with Julia Roberts
Kristen Bell, Rumer Willis, Milo Ventimiglia
Save a Dolphin, Save the World
This year has been all over the place. The Heroes
hoopla was amazing, of course, but my boyfriend and I broke up after a year together, and—believe it or not—I hear there's actually a Japanese arrest warrant with my name on it just because I tried to stop dolphins from being hunted. Give me a break. And that goes double for you, TMZ—ooh, you caught Milo and me walking arm and arm after the Emmys. Big deal. Friends do that, you know.
Michael Cera is filming Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
, a movie about two teens who find romance at a punk concert
Still waiting to get poked here, people. The whole point of being on Facebook is to get poked and if I don't get poked after the year I had—Superbad
, anyone? Juno
ring a bell?—when will I ever get poked? Web site plug: clarkandmichael.com. Check it.
