They both sky-rocketed to singing fame at an early age.
They both got pregnant before getting married.
And they both turned those pregnancies into best-selling magazine issues, with Britney Spears showing serious skin while knocked up in August 2006 for Harper’s Bazaar and Jessica Simpson doing the same thing month for Elle. Which singer rocks a hotter, naked, knocked up bod?
That’s the question. Provide the answer now:

Miley Cyrus has responded to those who believe she totally dissed her religion on Twitter this week. A quick refresher:
The actress quoted theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss on Sunday night, citing a long passage from the doctor about the scientific creation of the universe that included the line “Forget Jesus. Stars Died So You Could Live.”
Many followers took major exception to the supposedly anti-Christian message.
Now, Miley has shot back with a nuanced, mature, thoughtful response.
“How can people take the love out of science and bring hate into religion so easily?” she wrote. “ItMore >
In newly-released excerpts from an Out Magazine interview, Adam Levine took American Idol to task this week, claiming the competition forces its gay contestants to hide their sexuality.
Asked about that accusation, Idol/So You Think You Can Dance producer Nigel Lythoe essentially told Entertainment Weekly: HUH?!?
Indirectly or intentionally, Adam Lambert and Adam Levine continue to cross paths.
“To be frank, I didn’t understand why we’re talking about contestants being gay or not gay,” Lythoe said. “I don’t go into my dentist and say, “Are you gay?” I don’t say to contestants on So YouMore >

The auditions on America’s Got Talent continued to hobble along last night, this time in New York City, where the freaks were out in full force.
Just imagine how paranoid Howie must have really been paranoid about germs, as he emerged from a zorb. That was one of the highlights of an otherwise mediocre evening…
Tomorrow’s Contenders?Snap Boogie – The street performer had the perfect sob story and the right song to fit his character (overcoming obstacles with the joy of dance). We’ve seen a lot of breakers, but I was genuinely impressed by his whole routine. I can see how he would increaseMore >
Sad news today out of the world of country music: Glen Campbell has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease.
The singer and wife Kim opened up about his condition in an interview with People this week, saying Campbell intends to follow through on a series of live performances this fall in promotion of the album “Ghost on the Canvas,” which comes out August 30.
“Glen is still an awesome guitar player and singer,” says Kim. “But if he flubs a lyric or gets confused on stage, I wouldn’t want people to think, ‘What’s the matter with him? Is he drunk?’”
Competing for Brad Womack’s attention on The Bachelor, Ashley Hebert turned to food to cope with the stress. Soon enough, she’d packed on 10 pounds.
For a petite, 5’2″ girl, that’s a fair amount.
Fortunately, Ashley changed her diet and exercise habits to lose the weight in time for her upcoming wedding to her dreamy mystery fiance (follow this link for The Bachelorette spoilers if you care to know who that is).
Those 10 pounds weren’t the extent of Ashley’s self-esteem battle.
Despite the misleading cover above (she was called those things as part of a comedy roast, after all), there’sMore >

Production on The Amazing Spider-Man wrapped in May, but Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are still working on the next chapter … in real life!
What we meant by that horrendous intro is that the talented twosome is totally together, in a romantic sort of way. Cute stuff, are we wrong?
“They got close during filming and have been hooking up,” a source says.
The new couple decided to keep things quiet, the source adds, because Garfield split with Shannon Woodward, his girlfriend of three years, in May.
Stone, meanwhile, recently parted ways with Kieran Culkin, clearing the way for this newMore >
Lindsay Lohan is really getting screwed over by the criminal justice system.
That’ll teach her! In a new interview, Lohan opens up about her tough life.
“I’m a very social person, and I like being outside, especially in Venice Beach. I’d like to get out more – just go out and have dinner,” Lindsay says.
“I was really upset not being able to go to see my little brother (Dakota “Cody” Lohan) at his birthday party. He justMore >
Tom Hanks is a man of many talents.
Visiting Univision Deportes’ Despierta America Tuesday to promote Larry Crowne, the actor decided to also liven up the weather segment of the Spanish-language program, getting his DANCE on with co-host Chiquinquira Delgado!
We haven’t the slightest idea what Larry Crowne is about. But we’re grateful it exists, ’cause we have now been treated to Tom Hanks dancing, having no clue how green screens work, and yelling random temperatures in Spanish:
Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is going to rehab.
“I am going to rehab for anger control issues and depression,” she confirms to Star (via Radar) and after the month she’s had, it’s a wise move.
“I’m on medication at the moment to just help me relax,” she adds. “I’m in a vulnerable state right now. I know people want a lot of answers.”
Mostly, we just want her to live to see age 22.
Last week’s meltdown was merely the latest in a series of ugly incidents for the Anderson, Ind., native, who has more run-ins with police than we can count.
News that Amber Portwood was hospitalized after aMore >
John Galliano entered a courtroom in Paris today to face charges of “public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity.”
The former head of Christian Dior faces a possible sentencing of six months in jail for hurling anti-Semitic remarks at a Jewish couple in France this February. He told them he loved Hitler and made references to how their people were “gassed.”
Such talk, labeled as “racial prejudice,” is illegal in that country.
Galliano has since apologized for the outburst, but it will take more than that to get the fashion guru off.More >
The Voice highlighted its final eight contestants last night.
But instead of focusing on the performances, Twitter was alive this morning with buzz over one of Adam Levine’s critiques.
As seen below, in praising Nakia for his cover of “Whataya Want From Me,” the Maroon 5 singer took a few seemingly random jabs at Adam Lambert.
“I’m not familiar with that song, but you just forced me to like it,” Levine said. “I’m pretty sure, although I’ve never heard that song before, that you probably sang it better than the person that sang it More >
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s excursion to the U.S. isn’t their only stop in North America. They’ll be visiting our neighbors to the north too, eh!
After spending June 30-July 2 in Ottawa, Ontario, Gatineau, and Montreal, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will head to Quebec City on July 3.
The 29-year-old newlyweds (yesterday was William’s birthday) will work with Maison Dauphin, an organization that works with homeless youths.
The Quebec group’s mission ties in closely with William’s Patronage of Centrepoint, a homelessness charity, back home in the United Kingdom.
Later that day,More >
