Mark Wahlberg turns 41 today, but the bad-boy rapper turned award-nominated actor and producer still has the pecks and abs from his younger days. We recently saw the evidence all over the Web, as he was filming his new movie Pain and Gain in Miami and showing off his killer physique all over town. Mark even took it back to his Calvin Klein ad days by parading around in his underwear on his balcony.
Partly in preparation to play Micky Ward in the 2010 boxing flick The Fighter, Wahlberg beefed up quite a bit in recent years. The Boston native also literally flexed his muscles as Holbrooke Grant in the 2010 comedy Date Night. But he’s not just a pretty face: He was a producer on The Fighter, and exec-produced HBO series Entourage, How to Make It in America and Boardwalk Empire. He’s the whole package, but to celebrate Mark’s 41st birthday, we’re going to celebrate his less cerebral pursuits with 20 pics of the shirtless actor.
And while you’re at it, check out the video clip above to see celebs like Julianne Hough and Brooke Hogan weighing in on their shirtless Mark Wahlberg moment. Got one we forgot? Let us know in the comments section!

Mother Monster has a new title: Twitter Queen! Lady Gaga has busted social media records today by earning her 25 millionth follower on Twitter, making her the most followed person in the entire world. Her closest competition comes from Justin Bieber, who trails by more than 2.5 million. “#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today,” the music megastar tweeted this morning.
But hang on a second. There are 7 billion people in the world. What the hell are the rest of you 6.75 billion doing!? Join Twitter and follow her! Need a reason? OK, you asked for it! We’ve assembled the 25 best things we’ve learned about the pop goddess since following her on Twitter. Check ‘em out in the gallery below. Enjoy!
Sorry, Bravo, that we haven’t been tuning in for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. It’s just, well, the name instantly puts Kim Zolciak’s godawful “song” in our heads. Which, we know, is exactly the point. Anyway, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s wedding planning spin-off certainly caught our attention this week, when the 34-year-old decided on a clever gift for her fiance, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann: getting his football jersey painted on her naked torso for a sexy photo shoot. This is actually way sweeter and more personalized than mere lingerie, don’t you think? Also, weirder.
Anyway, the photos got us thinking about all the other lovely ladies who’ve been using their bodies as canvases of late — though actually, for not as sweet reasons. Rihanna did it for her recent “Where Have You Been” video. Heidi Klum did it for an Astor ad. Ashley Greene did it for Sobe. (None of them went for the same wrinkly shirt illusion as Kim, either, by the way.) Which is your favorite look?
It’s gotta be nice to be a teenage celebrity. If your parents tell you to turn your music down, just go out and buy your own house! Yes, while the rest of us were worrying about cleaning our rooms, these fresh faced actors and actresses are splurging on pads of their very own. Hunger Games hero Josh Hutcherson just shelled out some serious bucks to own the Hollywood Hills “tree house” once owned by the late great Heath Ledger. The 1,861 mansion set him back $2.995 million and boasts 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an outdoor theater nestled in the sycamore trees!
Of course, the 19-year-old isn’t the only teenage multimillionaire that’s got a crib of his own. Justin Bieber just recently spent over $6 million on a massive estate on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Country-pop princess Taylor Swift also has a swanky Beverly Hills home to her name, as do former Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Head down to the gallery below to see more incredible homes of teenage stars. As if you needed another reason to be jealous of these guys…

Cher has big plans for 2012, but don’t call it a comeback. The pop goddess has rarely slowed down in her 49-year career. Cher began recording her 26th studio album as of 2011, and plans to release “The Greatest Thing,” a duet with Lady Gaga, as its first single. The Armenian beauty won’t stop there. Cher announced via Twitter in February that she will also tour beginning in September 2012, her first tour in seven years. While she upholds her music and acting career, the mom of two still manages to be there for her kids. Not only was Cher Chaz Bono’s biggest fan while he was on Dancing With The Stars, but she also recently attended the GLAAD Media Awards with her son. Cher is such a supporter of Chaz and LGBT rights, she’s currently in a feud with Mitt Romney and Donald Trump over the issue.
The singer and actress has so much to be proud of. From her beginning as part of the pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, to becoming a television personality on her own variety show, to her acclaimed roles in films like Mask and Moonstruck, Cher is definitely a triple threat. She’s also had quite the love life — she’s been linked to everyone from Elvis Presley to Richie Sambora. Today Cher turns 66 years old, and we decided to turn back time and take a look at how she’s held onto that flawless physique and radiant beauty (with a little help from her surgeon friends) through the years.

Way before Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, music’s reigning queen of crazy style was also the queen of disco! Donna Summer was known not only for her sultry voice and lusty hits like “Bad Girls” and “Hot Stuff,” but also for her unmatched wardrobe. Her live performances, music videos and spots on top shows like Soul Train were always a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Today we lost a glittering legend whose dance floor smashes could wake you up better than a cold shower and a hot coffee! So to pay tribute to the divine Ms. Summer, we’ve compiled a list of her 20 most outrageous outfits ever. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go listen to all 17 minutes of “Love To Love You Baby.” And, of course, “Last Dance.”

Megan Fox is such an effortless sex symbol, we knew a little setback like her battle with Transformers director Michael Bay wouldn’t hold her back for long. As the face of Armani Eye Prime and the butt of Armani Jeans, it’s no wonder Megan tops many “hot” lists. Her curvacious body and baby blues caught the eyes of her husband Brian Austin Green back in 2004 on the set of Hope & Faith, one of her first big TV roles. She’s a rebel too. With eight tattoos and a great pucker, some have pegged her as the next Angelina Jolie. She’s apparently getting rid of her most-known tattoo though, a portrait of Marilyn Monroe. We also hear she may be pregnant. We know for sure that Megan can pull off a great pair of thigh-high stockings while rolling in bed, like her new Sharper Image ad. Today’s Megan’s 26th birthday and we’d like to wish her a big happy birthday by giving you 26 of her steamiest looks. Enjoy!

As the little sister of a pop icon, of course Janet Jackson had it in her genes to be a star. She began her career at the tender age of 10 appearing on her family’s variety show, The Jacksons. Then broke away from the Jackson clan when she appeared on the television series Good Times. But it soon became apparent that acting wasn’t the only talent Janet possessed, and she signed a record deal in 1982. Janet exploded as a true pop star when her third album Control reached the top of the charts with such hits as “What Have You Done For Me Lately” and “Nasty,” while her hot ensembles and killer body made her a sex symbol. Twenty-five years later, Janet still busts a move on her tours and is one of the leading black actresses in Hollywood in films like Why Did I Get Married Too? and For Colored Girls. Today Janet turns 46 years old, inspiring us to take a stroll down memory lane to just where Janet’s success began. Here are 46 pics of her from little Janet to Ms. Jackson through the years.

We’re starting to think Robert Pattinson receives more new hairstyles than he does new movie roles. The Twilight heartthrob revealed his newest ‘do, a buzz cut, at the People’s Choice Awards in February and has been sporting a clean-cut look ever since. From spiked mop to scruffy beard, RPattz has sported many different cuts and manages to maintain that sexy demeanor with every style. Some of Rob’s best ‘dos came from movie roles like his plot-driving locks in Cosmpolis and his unruly sideburns in Bel Ami. We know co-star Kristen Stewart loved rubbing her hands through those brunette tresses in Breaking Dawn, Part 1. To celebrate Rob’s 26th birthday, we’re taking a look at Rob’s hair-volution: from grunge to clean cut.

Cory Monteith is a really hot 6-foot-3 Canadian with a tribal arm band, or at least that’s how girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele likes to refer to him. And we can’t help but agree. The actor and musician has blessed our TV screens and musical hearts as Finn Hudson for three seasons on Glee. Who doesn’t love an underachieving quarterback who sings and prays to a grilled cheese sandwich? That’s why there was a sigh was heard around the world when we learned that Ryan Murphy had found a way to keep Finchel around for next season, even though they’re graduating from McKinley next week.
In real life, when Cory’s not singing and “dancing” on the Glee set, he’s drumming it up with his band Bonnie Dune and now popping up everywhere at Lea’s side — it looks like Rachel and Finn’s romance has become a reality. Whether Cory’s taken or not, we’re still going to wish him a huge happy birthday today. We know it’s hard to believe, since he’s so convincing as a high schooler, but Cory’s turning 30! Here are his 30 hottest looks to celebrate the big day.
