George Clooney World’s Most Handsome
Science has confirmed that George Clooney is the sexiest man alive.
Typically, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So it’s easy to spot who is hot – or not.
Leave it to mathematicians to complicate matters. They attempt to determine sex appeal based on the perfect ratio of facial features. In other words, is the nose in proportion to the lips and how are the eyebrows and nose and lips spaced apart.
So mathematicians measured the facial features of hundreds of Hollywood’s leading actors. George Clooney has an almost perfectly symmetrical face. His score of 92% ranks him first.
One of the lowest ranked actors is Peter Dinklage. The little person is a star of Game of Thrones. His acting talent overcomes his shortcomings in the looks department. (Daily Mail)
The hottest guys ranked are:
- George Clooney 92.0
- Bradley Cooper 91.8
- Brad Pitt 90.5
- Harry Styles 89.5

EDITORIAL: "Righteous" Legal Battle by Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift has fans on the editorial board of The Denver Post. On Friday, the newspaper published the following commentary:
“Taylor Swift is doing the right thing and not the easy thing in fighting a lawsuit filed against her by former radio talk show host David Mueller, whose alibi is as shaky as a junkie.
"He is accused of reaching up Swift’s skirt and grabbing her bottom. Not that the international superstar and emblem of female empowerment needs our support. But as the trial date approaches, it’s important that her young female fans know it is unacceptable for men to grab women without permission — and that such assault comes with repercussions in our society.
"One must ask why Swift hasn’t settled. The answer is that she is fighting this fight for all women. We applaud Swift’s courage, and hope that she prevails.”
KATHY GRIFFIN: "Exonerated" in Trump Photo Scandal
Kathy Griffin is off the hook for her controversial photo shoot with a bloodied Donald Trump mask.
On Friday, the comedian tweeted, “I am no longer under federal investigation. The case is closed, I have been completely exonerated. Finally." In June, Kathy revealed she was under federal investigation for the photo, which ignited a huge backlash.
Though she won't face any legal trouble, Kathy's career has suffered. She lost her New Year’s Eve gig on CNN as well as a Squatty Potty commercial. Also several of the shows on her comedy tour were canceled.
LADY GAGA: Subpoenaed in Kesha Suit
Lady Gaga has been subpoenaed as part of Dr. Luke's defamation suit against Kesha.
A statement released by the producer's spokesperson said, "In connection with Dr. Luke’s defamation claims against Kesha, various third parties are being deposed by both sides, including celebrities. Dr. Luke’s counsel served a subpoena on Lady Gaga because she has relevant information regarding, among other things, false statements about Dr. Luke made to her by Kesha."
TMZ reports that Gaga said she would submit a written statement concerning the case, but Dr. Luke's lawyers want a three-hour face-to-face with her. The subpoena request involves a text message conversation between Kesha and Gaga in February 2016. The filing alleges the texts included statements by Kesha about her abuse and implored Gaga to join a "smear campaign against [Dr. Luke]." Dr. Luke's lawyers claim the copy of the texts they received were "heavily redacted" and "incomprehensible."
Rachel Lindsay Absent at Bachelorette Party
Rachel Lindsay skipped her Bachelorette party. A worried friend stated (quote) "No one has any idea what’s going on. She was supposed to be there. It’s her trip. But at the last minute she didn’t show up.”

Rachel supposedly missed her flight to the Dominican Republic. That didn’t kill her friends’ vibe. A dozen women from the Bachelor season partied all weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana. Their Instagram timelines prove it.
