Looking to stock up on a few household needs, Ashley Tisdale and boyfriend Scott Speer were spotted out shopping in Sherman Oaks, California on Saturday afternoon (January 2).

Having recently ditched her hair extensions, the “High School Musical” hottie and her beau carefully browsed the furniture store offerings at The Westfield Mall in search of the perfect home decor pieces.

Meanwhile, Ashley seems to have enjoyed quite the fun-filled New Year’s celebration, as she tweeted of her party plans a few days back, “So excited for tonight, gonna be bringin in the new year with my man, nessa, and zac!!! I hope everyone has a great new year. Be safe xoxo!”

Once the clock struck midnight, Tizzie joyously wrote to her many Twitter fans and followers, “Happy New Year!!!!!!! i love you all!”

Enjoying a relaxing stroll around town, Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan were spotted out near the “Transformer” actor’s home in Encino, California on Saturday (January 2).

The “Wall Street 2” co-star couple smiled and laughed amongst one another, dutifully giving Shia’s pet bulldog a little fresh air and exercise.

Meanwhile, Shia was among the Hollywood stars making Quigley Publishing Company’s list of 2009’s biggest box office draws.

While Sandra Bullock snatched the year-ending list’s top spot, the following nine big earners included Matt Damon, George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Shia and Denzel Washington.

Enjoying the south of the border sunshine, Molly Sims stepped out in a cute bikini in Los Cabos, Mexico on Friday morning (January 1).

The sexy supermodel was joined by her pet pooch as she strolled over to a poolside recliner to get a little sun on the last day of her holiday getaway.

Smiling throughout the entire day’s outing, Miss Sims clearly seems to be over her short lived romance with actor Aaron Eckhart – as the two broke things off earlier this month.

As for work duties, Molly is currently focusing on a new movie called “Hickory Nation,” which “revolves around the aftermath of a mysterious hit-and-run in a small Maine coastal community, unexpectedly bringing together a teacher and her two students, each struggling to resolve their own secrets and lies.”

Never ones to hold back when it comes to living the good life, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z decided to ring in the New Year in the relaxing environment of St. Barth.

Spotted side-by-side on Thursday afternoon (December 31), the happy couple held one another as they partook in a leisurely yacht cruise around the Caribbean ahead of the New Year’s Eve parties.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z recently finished up his work on a brand new collaboration called “Light Up” with Toronto lyricist, Drake.

“Everybody is looking for this one joint with me and Jay, so that needs to happen,” Drake previously told MTV. “My goal at this point is to keep making that organic music. I don’t wanna feel pressure now that I have a single and music that’s hot.”

Now having completed the new track, Drake later told MTV, “When I heard that beat, the drums that they had come up with, it was like, ‘Man, this is a moment. This sounds like where I’m at in my life.’ So, we took it and 40 did what he does to pieces of music that I see potential in — he took it to the next spot. Jay-Z’s on it. The song is phenomenal. It’s done now.”

Getting some much-needed relaxation after a late night of partying, Leighton Meester was spotted hanging out with friends at The Shore Club in Miami Beach, Florida on Wednesday afternoon (December 30).

The “Gossip Girl” actress sprawled out alongside the hotel pool, enjoying a few laughs with her companions after having performed at the opening of Klutch nightclub the previous evening.

Meanwhile, Miss Meester will be making her way to Atlantic City to ring in 2010, as her band is playing a gig at the Dusk Club.

“I’m performing at 12:01,” Leighton told E! News, then telling of her New Year’s resolution, “I don’t make them, because I don’t keep them! Maybe when I was 8, I said I’d make my bed every day.”

candice-swanepoel-bikini1We have a lot of those “if we ruled the world” proclamations. Like, if we ruled the world, Chris “Doo Doo” Brown and Charlie Sheen would have to marry each other. Or, if we ruled the world, “Bad Romance” would be our national anthem, and when it was played at baseball games, during the “Walk, walk, fashion baby” part, the opposing teams would have a pose off in center field. Also, if we ruled the world, no one would have to work during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Especially people who write celebrity gossip for a living. You know why? Because NOTHING happens. Sure, once in while Charlie Sheen will wail on his wife or Kim Kardashian will get peed on, but other than that, it’s just boring, low-rung celebrities in bikinis. And that gets boring day after day. So we give up. We’re done for the day. As a parting gift, enjoy Victoria’s Secret models Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel in bikinis.

Getting in some all-important mother-daughter bonding, Jennifer Garner was spotted on a retail romp with her mom Patricia Ann English yesterday afternoon (December 29).

The “Catch and Release” babe looked to be having a great time as she hit up the Century City Mall in Los Angeles while the paparazzi looked on.

And when it comes to future endeavors, Jen says she’s not looking for another Broadway gig as it took away from her time with her family.

Speaking of her “Cyrano de Bergerac” role she explained, “It was just my favorite thing I’ve ever done, but it’s hard on my family.

taylor_swift_lautner-dateStore the children safely in a well and pull the orange tabs to inflate the life vest! Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner have broken up! You’d think they were a match made in heaven, being the two biggest teen stars and everything, but even having the same first name couldn’t keep them together. US breaks this shocking story:

After three months of dating, country singer Taylor Swift and New Moon star Taylor Lautner have split, UsMagazine.com has learned.

“It wasn’t really developing into anything, and wasn’t going to, so they decided they were better as friends,” a source close to Swift, 20, tells Us. “There was no chemistry. . . He liked her more than she liked him. He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn’t travel much to see him.”

As is her wont, Swift will most likely turn this breakup into a hit song.

He has muscles, my hair’s curly
He turns into a CGI werewolf when he’s surly
Dreaming bout the day when he mauls a Cullen
Then Bella will bite her lip, roll her eyes and act sullen

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
We both get cash from teee-eee-eens
I’m prettier than he
Or is he prettier than me?

Always a welcome sight, Miranda Kerr showed off her fabulous bikini body in the new issue of Australia’s Ralph magazine.

The Victoria’s Secret beauty lined the pages in a variety of skimpy two-piece swimsuits, posing for the lucky photographers chosen for the steamy shoot.

Meanwhile, Miss Kerr spent time in Miami, Florida over the past weekend alongside her “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor beau, Orlando Bloom.

Reportedly hitting the dance floor at LIV nightclub in Miami’s Fontainebleau Hotel on Saturday night, a People magazine insider tells that Miranda “held Bloom’s hand as she danced” as the deejay played Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”.

Xpimp n ho jude n siennaA few things have changed since the last time Jude Law and Sienna Miller were together. She got super famous via crappy movies and husband stealing and booby flashing. We saw his shrinky-dink wiener, then he got really bald, resulting in a roughly 97% drop in women who want to pork him. But some things never change. Like the fact that Jude’s still really good at insemination. In fact, after that kid he still hasn’t met, he’s even better at it than before. Star reports (via Celebitchy):

In mid-November, “Sienna realized she was late, and she freaked!” an insider reveals. “They’re still working things out, really, and she was afraid that getting pregnant would ruin everything.”

“Jude was really supportive. Sienna even took the home test at his place,” says the source. “It was a false alarm. She was likely just late from the stress of her Broadway show.”

Well that was a close one. A baby at this point in their relationship would be really hard. She’d be all like, “You’re only with me because of the baby!” And he’d shoot back with, “You’re only with me because it’s good for your career to date a real movie star. Alfie was the best job you ever had!” And she’d retort, “That’s not true! Take that back. I did . . . hmmmm, that one was no good. But! Nope, that one sucked too. And then I made . . . jeez, maybe you’re right. I’m so sorry I yelled at you, honey.”

Treating the family to a fun-filled beach holiday, Ice-T and wife Nicole “Coco Marie” Austin were spotted living it up in sunny Miami, Florida on Monday afternoon (December 28).

Showng off her busty beach body, Coco was decked out in a tight-fitting floral bikini as she played with her sister Kristy’s children while her “Law & Order: SVU” hubby kept company with his son, Ice Marrow.

Keeping his fans up to date via Twitter, Ice-T tweeted the previous day, “Made it to MIA.. kids and all! I feel like the GRIZWALDS…. Who know about them??”

A few hours later, the rapper/actor added, “Just took my 18 year old son to South Beach for his first time…. I think I blew his mind!!”

Braving the snowy winter weather, Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick were spotted out with the twins in New York City on Sunday (December 27).

The “Sex and the City” sweetie and her “Deck the Halls” hubby toted six-month-old Marion and Tabitha around town as paparazzi followed their every move.

Meanwhile, SJP recently chatted about how thrilled she was to star alongside Hugh Grant in her recently released movie, “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”.

She tells: “With this movie, I was basically shoved up inside his jacket pocket. I just loved it. I love him. He is very, very good at what he does. I paid to see him in ‘Four Weddings And A Funeral’ again and again! I wanted to be in a romantic comedy opposite him for years.”

Enjoying a little quality time with her darling daughters, Jennifer Garner spent the day at a park in Brentwood, California on Saturday afternoon (December 26).

Bundled up in a winter jacket, the “Juno” actress was all smiles as she hit up the playground equipment with Violet and Seraphina.

As for family life, Jen recently told that she’s learned to deal with being separated from husband Ben Affleck as a result of their busy work schedules – which she can handle with the help of her girlfriends.

“I can live with Ben working crazy hours. But I can’t live without girlfriends. It’s fine if he’s not there; I just need someone to b*tch about it to,” Garner said.

Inching closer and closer to the new year lying ahead, 2009 surely wasn’t short of its fair share of celebrity bikini bliss.

With a seemingly endless supply of Hollywood hotties decked out in skimpy swimwear, lovely ladies such as Miranda Kerr, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Mariah Carey were among the numerous beach dwellers over the past twelve months.

Joining in on the body-baring fun were the damsels of the reality TV world, as Kristin Cavallari, Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port, Kim Zolciak and Kelly Bensimon all took their turns modeling bikinis as paparazzi eagerly snapped up shots.

Not to be left out, fellow starlets such as AnnaLynne McCord, Courteney Cox, Sienna Miller, Elisabetta Canalis, Leighton Meester and Tori Spelling showed off their fabulous figures for the whole world to see.
