With countless awards and number one hits under her belt, Carrie Underwood rightfully earned a spot on TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influencial People list.

Fellow country star Brad Paisley took a moment to praise the blonde beauty in the issue, stating that she’s raised the bar for their industry.

“I remember Carrie Underwood early on telling me how badly she wanted to earn her place in our industry. It was 2005, and she had just won American Idol and had her first No. 1 song,” Brad explained.

“Fast-forward to 2014. Not only has she earned her place, she’s also raised the bar: she’s a prolific songwriter, a trendsetter and an Opry member. But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive. She’s an advocate for causes like animal rights and the Red Cross. She has publicly challenged lawmakers when she’s disagreed with them, and covered controversial issues in her music. She can sing the fire out of a song and tell a joke. I’m always amazed at her comedic timing and instincts when we co-host the CMA Awards. She has faith, a sense of self and loves a good challenge. When most singers tackle a Broadway musical, it’s in front of a thousand people. She did it in front of 20 million.”

“So many young girls want to be just like her. In that sense, I see hope for the world,” Paisley writes. “If I had a daughter, nothing would make me happier than to hear her say she wanted to grow up to be like Carrie Underwood.”

Aaron Carter Is Being a Farcical Ex-Boyfriend

Emblematic middle school power couple Hilary Duff and Aaron Carter dated from 2000 to 2003. It ended with rumors of cheating (Lindsay Lohan was involved) and photographs that seemed to show everyone was macking on the same lip gloss. It was the Disney channel drama of the century.

Giving fans another look at its upcoming flick, 20th Century Fox released a brand new trailer for “Let’s Be Cops” on Thursday (April 24).

The comedy starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. focuses on two pals after they decide to masquerade around town as police officers.

Directed by Luke Greenfield, “Let’s Be Cops” also stars Nina Dobrev and Andy Garcia. It’s slated to hit theaters on August 13.

Taylor Momsen: Im Very Comfortable With Nudity

After a fun night out, Taylor Momsen left the Warwick Nightclub in Hollywood, CA on Wednesday (April 23).

The Pretty Reckless babe rocked an all-black ensemble with John Lennon-style sunglasses and kept a low profile as she made her way out of the hotspot.
During promotions for her band’s latest album, the 20-year-old opened up about her parent’s thoughts on the singer’s nudity.

var era_rc = { ERADomain: ‘as.vs4entertainment.com’, PubID: ‘celebritygossip’, Layout: ‘default’, MaxRelatedItems: ’4′, BlockID: ‘standard’ }; (function(){var v=’ERA_AD_BLOCK’;var i=1;while(document.getElementById(v)){if(i==25)break;v=’ERA_AD_BLOCK’+i++;}document.write(“”); var sch=(location.protocol==’https:’?'https’:'http’);var host=sch==’http’?'as.featurelink.com’:'secure.featurelink.com’;var s=document.createElement(‘script’);var src=sch+”://”+host+”/ERALinks/era_rl.aspx?elid=”+v;for(var p in era_rc) {if(era_rc.hasOwnProperty(p)){src+=decodeURIComponent(‘%26′)+p.toLowerCase()+”=”+encodeURIComponent(era_rc[p]);}};s.src=src;document.getElementsByTagName(“head”)[0].appendChild(s);})(); body div.era_ad_block{background-color:black!important;}body div.eraLinksBlock{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-rc{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-container{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-item{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-footer{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block a.vsw-ad-video{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-footer a span,div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-footer a.vsw-ad-privacy:link{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-footer a.vsw-ad-family{background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-title{font-family:Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif!important;color:white!important;background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-text{font-family:Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif!important;color:white!important;background-color:black!important;}body div.era_ad_block .vsw-ad-domain{color:#FF5AAD!important;text-decoration:none!important;background-color:black!important;}

“My parents didn’t really care. They knew I was experimenting with things, it’s just (expletive) clothing, I don’t know why everyone makes a big deal out of it. My mum is really into fashion, it’s just figuring out what you like.”

Taylor also discussed how her style evolved since The Pretty Reckless’ debut album Light Me Up.

“I’m no longer wearing my corsets right now [but] I don’t regret anything. It just has to have a purpose, it has to have an artistic meaning behind it … otherwise I find it cheap. My parents understand the artistic meaning behind it [getting naked]. I started modeling at two and went into acting. I’m very comfortable with nudity.”

With the Tribeca Film Festival in full swing, the Cut dedicates today’s Male Gaze to For Spacious Sky, a TIFF-selected short film that focuses on three estranged brothers as they embark on a road trip together. There’s Eli (Andres Faucher), an ex-con; Kevin (Gabe Fazio), a drug addict on his way to a rehab facility; and Clay (Jonah Blechman), the gay writer trying to keep them all together. Set in California, the film offsets shots of the brothers (all hunky and with facial hair) against sweeping images of the open road. A brotherly bromance in the truest sense of the word. (For Spacious Sky is playing this weekend during the Tribeca Film Festival.)

Assisting with the celebrations, Fergie and Jennifer Hudson headed over to the New York Stock Exchange for the 100 Year Anniversary of Brown Shoe Company’s public status on Wednesday (April 23).

Striking a few poses at 4 World Trade Center, the singing gals looked amazing in their sexy getups.

Showing off a clip from the party, Fergie posted a video of the closing bell ceremony.

Along with the clip, the shoe designer wrote, “Closing bell b*tchez!!!! #Brown100 @BrownShoe #NYSE #NYSEBell @NYSEEuronext @FergieFootwear”
