Janet Jackson Hasn't Been Seen In Months - What Does She Look Li
It's been months since Janet Jackson was spotted in public. The last time was in Dubai on October 31; before that, no one had seen her since May of 2013.

But the world-famous R&B singer finally poked her head out into the world yesterday, for the most important of activities: shoe shopping.

A few photos (one seen above) of Jackson were snapped in Milan, showing the superstar in all black: black coat, black pants, black heels and black hat.

The youngest Jackson has kept her private life stunningly private for years.
Her recent marriage to fashion tycoon Wissam Al Mana wasn't made public ...

Color Blind: Celebrity Interracial Couples

Color Blind: Celebrity Interracial Couples
For many in Hollywood, love is color blind. It's not uncommon for celebrities to date people of other races.

Halle Berry & French actor Olivier Martinez met while filming "Dark Tide" in South Africa in 2010. They tied the knot in 2013 and have a one-year-old son. Berry also has a daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, a white, Canadian model.

For reality star Kim Kardashian, it's the man, not his color, that matters. She had a long-term relationship with Reggie Bush before later marrying Kris Humphries. She then settled on rapper Kanye West, with whom she has a one-year-old daug...

16 Hollywood Stars & Their Supercars
Honda. Ford. Chevy. These are all household names. We see them every day driving to work, or while going to grab a cup of coffee on the corner, or from our office window. They don't do anything special to really grab your attention - they just exist to get us from point A to point B. And for most of us, that's just fine.

But for those who can afford it, vehicles offer something else - status. And those vehicles are fast and loud, and they grab -no- command attention wherever they go. Whether it's through sleek, formula 1-like styling, or monstrous engines that roar like lions and move like...

Celebrity Nose Jobs: Before & After Shots

Celebrity Nose Jobs: Before & After Shots
Many celebrities have had nose jobs, although only a fraction of them admit it. Of those that do, they often claim a deviated septum forced them to have rhinoplasty. But we know the real reason why so many in Hollywood go under the knife - vanity!

The irony is that not all of them like their new look.

Former "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Tori Spelling openly admitted to having a nose job and breast implants in her 2008 memoir "sTORI Telling." She said she regretted getting the work done.

See who else in Hollywood has had a nose job...

The Biggest Losers: Celebrities Who Have Lost Over 50 Pounds!
Singer Jordin Sparks made a drastic lifestyle change to drop more than 50 pounds over two and a half years. In 2011 she told People magazine what her "secret" was: "It was just a shift in my thinking. Instead of talking about being more active, I just got up and did it. There's no secret. Anybody can do it."

The former "American Idol" star told Life & Style magazine that the extra weight was like carrying a 5-year-old child.

With the immortal words from 20th century poet Sir Mix-a-Lot "I like big butts and I cannot lie," the crack research team at Starpulse was given the arduous and grueling task of finding the finest photos on the site that revere one of the world's preferred body parts, the buttocks.

In contemporary music and in Hollywood today, starlets and singers who refrain from eating are considered to be the definition of beauty and grace; but many prefer more curvier women -- those with a little "junk in the trunk".

Best & Worst Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions

October 19th, 2012 11:05am EDT
Elizabeth Hurley
It's a celebrity's worst nightmare - a wardrobe malfunction (although we're pretty sure some of them plan it). The phrase skyrocketed in popularity in 2004 after Janet Jackson performed at the Super Bowl with Justin Timberlake and he tore open her top, exposing her right breast while singing, "Gonna have you naked by the end of this song."

Savvy stars do whatever they can to avoid embarrassing skin-revealing incidents, but inevitably a dress seam rips, a skirt blows up, or a nipple peeks out.

Elizabeth Hurley, above, showed up to the Love Ball in London, England, two years ago wearing a s...

The Jacksons have been contesting their brother's will and feuding with music industry veterans John Branca and John McClain, who are in charge of the estate.
