Mickey Mouse!

Soon after they began dating, he surprised her with a Mercedes-Benz G-class SUV (retail price: more than $100,000) for an early 20th birthday present. "When I called him I was like, 'You're crazy! It's perfect!'," she told PEOPLE. The singer has also been brushing up on his sport, picking up a copy of the book Hockey for Dummies."

New Candid - Hilary arrives at STK in Hollywood

Hilary went to STK House in Hollywood on February 19, 2008. It was Haylie's birthday so I was thinking that maybe that's where they went to celebrate, but I haven't seen any pics of Haylie.

Jojo calls Hilary Duff a Manufactured Artist

In response to recent rumors that she was turned down for the role of Hannah Montana, teen pop singer Jojo has released the following statement on her MySpace blog:

"Another mistake that is stated on the Wikipedia page is that I turned down the Hannah Montanna role because of my hectic schedule. This is not true. I was not interested in doing a television show like that because I did not want to be that kind of artist. I am more concerned with being a legitimate artist; not one created for the captive tween audience, from a television show. They were going to use the same formula that they did with Hillary Duff and her show, and I did not want to be a manufactured artist. I wanted to do it on my own; the old fashioned way; with talent, determination, and hard work, and without a television show, which is fed to the tween masses. This is the same reason I have turned down every reality show that has been offered to me, since I signed my record deal. For me, it is about integrity."

While it is hard to argue that Disney stars like Hilary and Miley Cyrus aren't manufactured, Jojo's comments seem out of line. Just because Hilary got her start on the Disney channel doesn't mean that she lacks talent. And to say that she doesn't work hard is laughable. While I'm sure Jojo didn't mean to insult Hilary personally I think she could have chosen her words more carefully.

Hilary in OK Magazine - Australia

Hilary Duff was interviewed in the Australian version of OK Magazine. The most interesting part of the interview is probably what she had to say about boyfriend Mike Comrie:

OK: Are you missing your boyfriend, Mike?

Hilary: Well, you know what... i left my cell phone in the car in Brisbane and it seemed like forever that we didn't talk. When i finally borrowed someone else's phone to call him he was like, 'I was about to die!' He's a really really good person and a really nice balance for me. With my job I sometimes get a little bit crazy and he's very even.

OK: He seems very proud of you, talking about your charity work...
Oh, people don't have to know everything I do. But there are certain things I want more people to know about. I'm starting something called Blessings in a Backpack - for kids to be able to take food home from school. A lot of them were only eating at school when meals were provided and had nothing when they got home and over the weekends. I do things with Kids With a Cause all the time, too, like hospital visits.

OK: He also said you guys were getting serious. Will you be joining the celeb baby boom?
Oh my goodness! No - no babies anytime soon! But he is awesome.

Keyshia Cole Album Cover

Something I just noticed today: The cover of Keyshia Cole's new hit CD Just Like You looks very similar to the cover of Hilary Duff's Most Wanted Collector's Signature Edition.

Cosmopolitan Magazine - Chile

Hilary Duff is on the cover of the February 2008 issue of Cosmo in Chile. The issue includes an article about Hilary and a quiz that asks her about her favorite celebrities and more. I can't read Spanish so I didn't understand most of the article, but it was fun seeing what Hilary wrote down for the quiz.
