The pop star has never looked better. She says Zumba dancing helped her go from a size 14 to a size 8 in 2011. Portion control also helped her drop the pounds. Jordin famously posted a bikini pic on twitter last year after losing weight.

Jonah Hill Weight Loss
Weight is a big issue in Hollywood (no pun intended). Celebrities are either too heavy or too thin for sensationalist magazines. However, it's always a feel-good story when a celebrity begins to shed the pounds - here are the most notable celebrity slim-downs of 2011!

Jonah Hill: The Sitter and 21 Jump Street star lopped off 40 pounds this year - he's barely recognizable now, especially compared to his look in The Sitter (which had its released delayed several months). Fans were worried that Jonah wouldn't be as funny if he lost weight - we'll have to see for sure when 21 Jump Street comes...

The No Air hit-maker attended the R&B star's belated 22nd birthday party in Hollywood on Sunday and insiders claimed the pair went public with their affections for one another.

'American Idol' Recap: Was This The Most Boring Finale Ever?

May 25th, 2011 9:35am EDT
Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery
The most boring finalists ever. That seemed to be the conventional wisdom going into the evening. That, despite a strong start, this season of ‘Idol’ was destined to fall into oblivion with two dull finalists that wouldn’t be able to deliver the finale this Renaissance season deserved.

Yes, that might be true. It may have been more interesting to see James square off against Pia or Jacob take on Haley, but that doesn’t necessarily mean this is the most boring collection of contestants ever, does it?

Here’s a ranking of finale pairings from least boring to most boring:

'American Idol' Recap: James Durbin Goes Home In Another Shocker + Power Rankings

May 13th, 2011 9:23am EDT
James Durbin is eliminated
Now this one I just can’t figure out.

To me, there were three major talents on the show this year. Three performers that transcended the confines of this karaoke competition show and actually seemed like they could be recording artists. Those three were Pia, Jacob and James. And now none of them have made it to the top three.

I can understand what happened to the first two. Pia, for some reason, was overly criticized by the judges to the point that America was being told she was the worst contestant. Jacob just never seemed to connect with the audience. But James…I just didn’t get James.

The look doesn't break the bank, either. The American Idol winner tweeted later, "The top is from target & bottoms from old navy! Lol."

She told People the "secret" to her trim figure: "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."

Jordin Sparks is nursing a bruised leg after a terrifying run-in with a pit-bull last weekend, when an unleashed dog locked its jaw around her limb.

The former American Idol winner took her own pet pooch to a New York City park on Sunday, where it could play with other dogs - but an untrained pit ruined the outing when it ran up to Sparks and bit her.

Showing off a marking on her left leg during an appearance on Wendy Williams' talk show on Monday, she explained, "You see this bruise right here? A New York experience. I took my dog to the dog park and I got bit by a pitbull. Yesterday!"...

'American Idol' Grand Finale Mega-Diary 2010

Lee Dewyze
It’s mega-diary time once again, kids. A time to give the blow-by-blow, the play-by-play of the most important events in pop culture.

The only question is whether or not this is the last time the “American Idol” finale warrants such treatment. The mega-diary is reserved for TV events like The Oscars and The Emmys (and by all rights The Super Bowl if lack of sobriety didn’t prevent cataloging that evening), but I’m not sure how much longer “Idol” is going to fit.

With Simon’s departure and dwindling ratings, this night next year could be on a part with the season finale of “Survivor” or ...

The ninth season has officially come to a close, with Lee DeWyze taking home the title of the next "American Idol."

It was only the second time in the show's history where neither of the final two contestants - DeWyze and runner up Crystal Bowersox - had ever finished in the bottom two or bottom three with viewer votes. The other two to accomplish the feat were Season 7 winner David Cook and runner up David Archuleta. Former winners Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks and Cook never landed in the bottom three with viewer votes either.

Speaking of viewer votes, th...

'American Idol' Recap - Lacey Gets The Boot + Idol Power Rankings

March 18th, 2010 9:26am EDT
American Idol Final 11 season 9
First Lilly hits the road, and now the second of my initial favorites bites the dust.

It’s not a surprise that Lacey left last night – she was probably the worst singer left in the competition, and it wasn’t a surprise she was joined by Tim Urban in the bottom three. The man who is now certainly the worst singer remaining. The mild shock was Paige’s presence in the bottom three. She absolutely killed “Honky Tonk Women” on Stones night, and showed that she could develop into the kind of pop artist that plays well on the radio – along the lines of Jordin Sparks.

So while the departure ma...

Starpulse recently had the chance to chat with Tokio Hotel band members Bill Kaulitz, Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing, and Gustav Schafer. The German pop quartet emerged on the American music radar when they pulled out an upset win over Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Jordin Sparks for "Best New Artist" at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards.
