Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — People magazine has already told us who the Sexiest Man Alive is, who the Most Beautiful people of the year are, and who are the best- and worst-dressed. Now, the mag is asking us to ogle half-naked celebs in a new list called “Most Talked About Bodies 2014″ — and of course, some big music stars are included on it.

Being the Sexiest Man Alive, it’s only natural that Adam Levine has made the list. Posing shirtless in a leather jacket, he tells People, “I’m pretty health conscious,” but admits that his one vice is sugar. “I love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and sour gummy things,” he reveals. But he manages to work it all off, noting, “When I’m not the road, I practice yoga every day or do something physical. I have to sweat.”

“I truly enjoy working out,” adds the 35-year-old Maroon 5 singer, who’s engaged to supermodel Behati Prinsloo. “A certain part has to do with vanity, but 80 percent of it is, I feel better when I’m doing something.”

Adam’s fellow Voice coach, Shakira, also makes the list, thanks to the fact that following the birth of her son, she’s regained her amazing physique by doing Zumba five times a week and eating five to six small meals per day. Also helping is the fact that, as she told Glamour, her boyfriend, soccer star Gerard Pique, doesn’t like women who are too skinny.

Another woman who’s sporting an incredible body after baby is Beyonce, also featured on the list. “I worked crazily to get my body back” after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy, she tells the magazine. “I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.”

Queen Bey then, of course, went on to show off the results of all that work in a series of super-sexy videos for her current self-titled album. “I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I don’t at all have any shame about being sexual and I’m not embarrassed about it.”

Rihanna, meanwhile, is included in a People feature called Body Moments of the Year, because she wore a $990 crystal-studded bikini in Barbados this past December.

Other stars featured on the Most Talked About Bodies list: Chris Pratt, Christie Brinkley, David Beckham, Joe Manganiello, and Dancing with the Stars brothers and dance pros Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy, who pose naked with their private parts covered by Pharrell Williams-style hats. The issue hits newsstands Friday.

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Andi Dorfman was happy to meet all 25 men competing for her heart on the season premiere of The Bachelorette.

However, in the real world, she probably wouldn’t have given most of them a chance.

In an interview with E!, the Atlanta attorney revealed that she only would have given four of them her number.

Still, “I want to go for somebody that’s not generally my type, but in the same sense, everybody is different and I think that’s what I’m learning: there really is no ‘type’ of person,” she said. “[I] definitely wanted 25 different guys from one another and guys from all over the place with all different professions, backgrounds, everything.”

Dorfman, 27, told the casting directors to pick guys who love their families and would be supportive, but in general, encouraged them to “surprise me.”

Having said that, she added that she kept her expectations of the show realistic.

“I come into this show hoping that I’ll find that person but realistically, it’s like meeting 25 guys and none of them might be that person,” she said. “To me it’s like, all right, I either sit at home and I don’t meet these 25 guys and kind of get the same outcome, which is not find anybody, or I take a chance and see what happens!”

Though rejecting “nice guys” was difficult, Dorfman said that she loved getting to know everybody — and wearing the glittery dresses. And, in the end, she said she’s glad she went through with doing The Bachelorette.

“Honestly it’s like looking back, there were times it was really hard and tiring. It sounds really great to date 25 guys but it’s a handful at times!” she said. “But looking back — amazing experience.”

John Paul Filo/CBS(NEW YORK) — Following a report in a Japanese paper stating that Paul McCartney had been hospitalized due to the illness that caused him to postpone a string of tour dates, his spokeswoman has now issued a statement confirming that the former Beatle was, in fact, admitted to a hospital in Tokyo.

“Since contracting a virus last week that led to the postponement of tour dates, Paul received successful medical treatment at a hospital in Tokyo,” said the statement issued to ABC News Radio. “He will make a complete recovery and has been ordered to take a few days rest. Paul has been extremely moved by all the messages and well wishes he has received from fans all over the world.”

Asked if McCartney was still in the hospital, or if he’s now been discharged, the rep added that she couldn’t “confirm either” one of those scenarios.

McCartney postponed several concerts in Japan and his first-ever show in Seoul, South Korea, due to his virus. He offered apologies to fans.

ABC/Peter “Hopper” Stone(LOS ANGELES) — Mitch and Cam finally tied the knot last night on ABC’s Modern Family.

But Mitch, played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, wasn’t just tearing up in joy onscreen, but off as well.

The actor, who married his long-time TV boyfriend Cam on Wednesday night’s season five finale, live tweeted the show.

After sending out funny messages about guest stars like Elizabeth Banks “killing it” on the show and how great the writers of Modern Family are, Tyler Ferguson posted about the beautiful scene at the end where it all comes together for a gorgeous wedding.

“Emotional to film, even more so to watch,” he wrote. “Is anyone else a little teary-eyed? #ModernWedding”

The story arc followed a June Supreme Court ruling that restored same-sex marriage in California.

Tyler Ferguson, who married real-life boyfriend Justin Mikita last July, also joked about getting married to two different men, even though one was just for TV.

“And just like that, I’m a married man! Wait, I’m having déjà vu….#ModernWedding,” he added.

Tyler Ferguson’s on-screen husband added to the Twitter love fest by writing, “What an honor it is to play 1/2 of this TV couple. I hope you all enjoyed this season as much as we all did making it. See u next season!”

Heidi Gutman/Bravo(NEW YORK) — Jerry Seinfeld says he tried in vain to convince Chris Rock to take David Letterman’s gig after the talk show host revealed he was going to step down from his CBS Late Show.

In an interview in the June/July edition of Esquire, Seinfeld recalls, “I was trying to convince him to take it.”

Seinfeld says Rock replied, “Absolutely no possible way.”

Seinfeld says he understands Rock’s reluctance to do a daily TV show: “Both of us are out when you hear ‘makeup every day.’ You hear that and I’m out.”

Seinfeld continues, “But I said to him, ‘What would your father do? Would your father turn down a job like that?’ I go, ‘What kind of father are you? What kind of man are you?’”

Seinfeld acknowledged that Rock “has other ways to make money, so it’s not really a fair question. But that was funny to me. To think of his father getting an opportunity like that and going, ‘You know what? I don’t think so.’”

The June/July Fatherhood issue of Esquire hits newsstands on May 27.

Bennett Raglin/BET/Getty Images for BET(NEW YORK) — Celebrity hairstylist Kim Kimble is putting her magic on a number of Hollywood stars this season on WeTV’s L.A. Hair. Kimble tells ABC News Radio that among the stars walking into her salon, she was most excited to work with one singer, Macy Gray.

“This was my first time working with Macy Gray and she’s coming out with a new album so we were doing kind of a shoot [to get] some new images out for her,” Kimble explains.

Fans can also expect to see actress Gabrielle Union, singer Akon and Entertainment Tonight correspondent Rocsi Diaz this season.

Kimble styles Shakira’s hair for NBC’s The Voice. “She loves that effortless like no-fuss hair, but surprisingly it takes a lot of effort to make hair look like it’s done but not done,” Kimble says. “And that is her look. She doesn’t like it too coiffed. She’s very natural, beachy, even if it’s curly or has a little beach wave to it; that’s her look.”

This season on L.A. Hair the salon gets a new barber, Lisa Buford, who comes and shakes things up. “I would say the new person coming in definitely brings a different dynamic to the team,” Kimble adds.

Still, the veteran stylists may be the ones to watch. “You know, China is still China. But I have to honestly say Naja, you know, she has kind of a sharp tongue. It gets her in a little trouble. It gets her into trouble this season because…she says what she wants.”

WeTV’s L.A. Hair returns May 22 at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Nine years after he was caught off-guard by Kanye West during a Hurricane Katrina telethon, Mike Myers is defending the rapper’s famous comments.

As you’ll recall, Kanye said, with Myers standing next to him, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” Reflecting on that moment now, Myers tells GQ magazine, “But for me, it isn’t about the look of embarrassment on my face, it is truly about the injustice that was happening in New Orleans.”

He continues, “To have the emphasis on the look on my face versus the fact that somebody spoke truth to power at a time when somebody needed to speak? I’m, like, super proud to have been next to him.”

In the interview for GQ’s June issue, Myers was asked whether he’d be “prepared” to revisit one of his two most notable movie franchises, Wayne’s World and Austin Powers, if he were to decide he’d want to make another film for either. He replied, “That’s an interesting question. The quick answer is: Yes, I’m prepared to do anything, you know, if it’s good. If it feels like it’s going to be thrilling.”

The June issue of GQ hits newsstands next Tuesday.

Moses Robinson/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond will appear on VH1′s upcoming reality series Atlanta Exes, premiering this August. The mother of the singer’s two young children is now opening up about her part in the downfall of their marriage.

“I did dumb stuff,” said Tameka during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I went to Brazil to get liposuction and almost died. I think that embarrassed him too, like ‘Oh no, I am packing up, she’s a nut.’”

“I made a lot of mistakes,” she said tearfully of her nearly two-year marriage with Usher. “I undertook a lot in getting into such a public relationship, and I think I nagged him as a result of what I was going through. I was just always in his ear. I was being such a b**ch.”

The show will also feature Ne-Yo’s ex fiance, Monyetta Shaw, and Cee Lo Green’s ex, Christina Johnson.

ABC/Randy Holmes(WASHINGTON) — What does Katy Perry have in common with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln? Come next month, her image will be hanging alongside of theirs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

A painting of the singer called Cupcake Katy will go on display at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery on June 18. It was painted by artist Will Cotton, who also did the cover of Katy’s smash album Teenage Dream and designed the set for her video for “California Gurls.” The oil-on-linen portrait shows Katy wearing a white dress designed by Cotton, and created by Cynthia Rowley. It resembles the pleated foil or paper wrapping that most cupcakes come encased in.

Cotton has jokingly dubbed the singer “Queen Katy of Candy Land,” and describes her as “over-the-top; she’s very sugary, saccharine and as sweet as can be.”

The portrait of Katy will only be on display for a limited time, so start planning your trip to Washington, D.C. now to check it out.
