Dark-haired, pregnant Spears poses nude for magazine

New York - Pregnant pop princess Britney Spears is baring nearly all on the cover of Harper's Bazaar magazine.

The singer of "... Baby, One More Time" posed in the buff for the cover of the August issue; there's also a photo spread inside. On the cover, Spears, who is sitting, cups her breasts with her hands and crosses her legs while showing her protruding belly and smiling for the camera of lensman Alexi Lubomirski.

"Nothing to wear?" a cover headline asks. "487 Best new ideas inside."

Spears revealed to late-night talk show host David Letterman last month that she was pregnant, confirming media reports and ending much speculation.

Spears, 24, and her husband, Kevin Federline, have a son, Sean Preston, who was born in September.

Hicks' first crush married, but contacts magazine

New York - Two weeks after Taylor Hicks discussed his first crush as a young boy, the woman from his past has contacted People magazine.

The "American Idol" winner told People in a recent interview that he never forgot his first crush: "I was in the second grade; she was in the sixth." He added that ever since, he's always liked older women.

After reading the article, the woman, Christy Lee Worsham, called People. She's now married and was surprised she had made such an impact on Hicks.

"He was such a fun kid," Worsham, 32, said. "I'm married. But I'd like to reconnect. He was like a brother to me."

Hicks, 29, was ranked as the "hottest bachelor" by People earlier this month. He then said he was on the lookout for another love interest: a mystery blond woman he briefly exchanged glances with on an airline flight.

A spokeswoman for People, which set up an e-mail and mailing address to help track her down, said Thursday there had been no luck yet.

Jordanian salesman charged after using Pitt's photo on I.D.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - A Jordanian salesman who tried to use an identity card with Brad Pitt's photo was on trial in the Emirates, a newspaper has reported.

The 29-year-old salesman allegedly forged the card with the Hollywood actor's picture and an Arabic name in an attempt to steal more than $22,000 left unclaimed at an exchange house where his brother worked as a teller, according to a report Thursday in the daily Gulf News.

The man, who told police he did not know who Pitt was, said in court Wednesday that he downloaded the photo from the Internet, the newspaper reported. Police were reportedly alerted by an informant.

Dubai's public prosecutors charged the man with forgery and embezzlement. A spokesman for the prosecutor's office was not immediately able to comment on the trial.
