Okay, Perez Hilton made it to number 2 spot and that is quite surprising. I know Perez is famous but I don’t really find his blog that entertaining. I’d rather go to Dlisted or A Socialite’s life for a dose of Hollywood gossip. Anyway, I heard he has three million readers a day so that must have been a huge factor. His pen-name was also derived from that famous socialite Paris Hilton. I think that also did the trick.

LL Cool J writes a fitness book to slam plastic surgery rumors

It seems that LL Cool J’s last resort to ward off rumors that he has gone through plastic surgery makeovers was to publish a fitness book that details his workout routines and favorite fitness recipes. The book is entitled LL Cool J’s Platinum workout.

Here’s more from Teen Hollywood:

He hopes the book will put any rumours to rest: “I constantly get, ‘Did you have any plastic surgery? Did you take steroids?’ It’s disheartening.

“Find a plastic surgeon who worked on me, and I’ll give you a million dollars.”

The singer admits his transformation from scrawny teen to sculpted rapper is remarkable, but insists that anyone can have great results following his plan.

So LL is really out to prove to the world that his transformation is natural. Hmmm, I think it would be nice to accept LL’s challenge to find a plastic surgeon who worked on him. One million bucks is a lot of money. I sure could buy much stuff out of that right?
