While we’re not suggesting our readers cast their votes in November based on celebrity endorsements, we feel it’s worthwhile to highlight the teams building on both sides. Among the A-listers, music legends and social activists that count themselves as (outspoken) supporters of Senator Barack Obama: Oprah Winfrey, will.i.am., Halle Berry, Stevie Wonder, Bono, Alicia Keys, Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson — to name a few.
Senator John McCain‘s Tinseltown fan club seems much less proud of their candidate (we had trouble finding ANY photos of celebs donning McCain gear), and includes The Nanny, The Terminator, Rambo, the goth girl from The Breakfast Club, Doyle of Bio-Dome, and Hills antagonist Heidi Montag.
Sounds like six more reasons we will not be attending the Republican National Convention next week. See photos of the loud and proud Obama followers below:

In light of the recent Chinese gymnast age controversy, we at Scandalist would like to take a moment to acknowledge what 15 years old looks like in Hollywood. Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen has come a long way since playing the adorable Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It seems she skipped that whole awkward, gangly stage most tall girls go through and headed straight to model-esque bombshell. The amount of eyeliner, leather, and leg that Momsen routinely dons on the red carpet makes us a bit worried for her future … considering our adolescent idea of a “sassy look” was getting hot pink bands on our braces and wearing glitter on our eyelids. See more photos below.
Sans children, Heidi Klum and Seal have been gallivanting around Paris giving Rihanna and Chris Brown some competition for cutest couple in the world. They’ve been touring the City of Light for the last couple days, snapping photos and enjoying some wine at a sidewalk cafe. We at Scandalist are “très jaloux.”
Where’s PETA when we need them? Danity Kane‘s frontwoman attended the Traitor premiere last night in L.A. and was channeling her inner … Chyna Doll? Jenna Jameson? Albino Big Bird? Aubrey O’Day needs a serious scrubbing; from the collagen to the self-tanner to the animal hides, this chick is an environmental hazard.

Last night, the Olympics reminded us that gymnasts are as close to superhuman as athletes get. Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, Koko Tsurumi (Japan), Gabriela Dragoi (Romania), and Anna Pavlova (Russia) continuously defied both gravity and mortality as their heads came within inches of smacking the beam. While you’d assume the images after the jump precede a crash, nine out of 10 (the exception being when Tsurumi fell) were seconds before a solid landing. Prepare to be awed. [Photos: Getty Images]
