Hilary Duff - Hilary Duff And Teresa Palmer Back Do Something Drive

Actresses Hilary Duff and Teresa Palmer have helped launch a campaign to encourage young Americans to volunteer in their local communities.
The duo was joined by She's All That star Rachael Leigh Cook on Friday (01Jun12) to kickstart the Do Something drive, which urges teens across the U.S. to do more to help out in their neighbourhoods.
The event was held with 50 student volunteers at Los Angeles' Lafayette Park Recreation Center, where new mum Duff planted flowers and Palmer and Cook added a much-needed lick of paint to the building.
Duff later took to her Twitter.com page to write, "It's amazing what kids can do! Check out volunteers' work today from the Do Something Summer Of Doing."
The day of service was capped off with a performance by pop singer Cody Simpson.

Ariana, Zooey, J-Lo, Miley! When Actresses Become Songstresses 4306712 News

There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.

While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.

Jenny Lewis promoJenny Lewis: Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis this week released Voyager, her critically acclaimed third studio album. Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

Jennifer Lopez promoJennifer Lopez: The Jenny from the block, who would eventually become J-Lo, actually started her showbiz career as a dancer, on comedy series ‘In Living Colour’. Lopez’s dancing skills were impressive enough to land her a job touring with Janet Jackson in 1993, but she declined instead deciding to give acting a shot. Lopez’s early acting career included small roles in films such as My Family and Money Train, before she landed her big break, starring as tragic pop star Selena in the 1997 biopic. A year later she starred alongside George Clooney in thriller Out of Sight. Lopez then set about conquering the music world in 1999 with the release of her debut album On the 6 and she hasn't looked back since. Although Lopez still occasionally acts, she is arguably best known now for her musical talents which she displayed most recently with new album 'A.K.A.', released in June and once again landing her a space in the US chart's top 10.

Miley Cyrus promoMiley Cyrus: Miley might have come from a musical family, (well Billy Ray Cyrus is her father), but the famous twerker actually started out as an actress. Cyrus's first acting role came on medical drama 'Doc', where she acted alongside her father in three episodes, she also had a small role in Tim Burton's Big Fish. But Miley's big break came in 2006 when she starred in Disney series' Hannah Montana'. In the show Cyrus played a normal girl who moonlighted as a pop star, a role which would help her transition into the music business. Miley's first musical release was the soundtrack to Hannah Montana's first season, but Cyrus quickly became regarded as a singer in her own right and she released her first album a year later. Nowadays Hannah Montana is long over and Miley Cyrus has become a household name, leaving her Disney alter-ego well and truly behind. While she might've followed in the footsteps of Hilary Duff, who starred in Disney Channel's 'Lizzie McGuire', it seems Miley has encouraged plenty of other teen TV stars in their ambitions with 'Wizards of Waverly Place' actress Selena Gomez kicking off her music career in 2009 and 'Camp Rock''s Demi Lovato also making her mark around the same time. Even Lindsay Lohan hit the studio several years before that. It seems Disney is the new platform for broadening ambitions.

Kylie Minogue performingKylie Minogue: It’s easy to forget that Kylie Minogue wasn't always the pint-sized queen of pop. Way back in the mid 1980s, before Pete Waterman got hold of her, Kylie was an actress starring in Australia’s biggest soap opera, 'Neighbours'. Minogue played the role of Charlene, a school girl turned mechanic whose love interest was another future pop star, Jason Donovan. After performing covers of ‘I Got You Babe’ and ‘The Loco-motion’ during a charity event in 1987, Minogue was offered a recording contract with Mushroom Records. A year later Kylie’s musical career was blossoming both at home and in the UK and she made the decision to say goodbye to acting. Since then the now 46 year old has sold over 70 million records worldwide and has become a member of Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame.

Ariana Grande promoAriana Grande: Ariana Grande might be just 21 years old but she’s a;ready had sucres as both an actress and singer. Her first big break break came when she was cast as Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon series 'Victorious' in 2011. She then landed her own spin off series, Sam and Cat alongside ‘iCarly’ star Jennette McCurdy, which latest for just one season. However by the time she’d landed her own sitcom, Grande had also made the move into music. She released her debut album Yours Truly in 2013 to critical acclaim, but Ariana would become a fully fledged pop star this summer with the success of single 'Problem' from her upcoming second album. Becoming one of the summer's biggest hits, 'Problem' reached number one on the UK Singles Chart and number two on the Bllboard Hot 100.

Zooey Deschanel promoZooey Deschanel: Given how her career has evolved, it’s fitting that Zooey Deschanel first came to our attention after her role in Almost Famous, a movie about music. Since finding fame as an actress, the future ‘New Girl’ couldn't help showing off her vocal talents wherever possible, in films such as Elf and 500 Days of Summer. But in 2007 Zooey officially made the move into music when she formed the band She & Him with musician M.Ward. So far the indie duo have released four albums, including 2011’s festive offering, A Very She & Him Christmas. Last month the duo hit the big time when they signed a new record deal with major label Columbia Records, ahead of their fifth album’s release later this year.

Juliette Lewis promoJuliette Lewis: Probably not the first woman who's going to pop into your head when you think of actresses turned singers but, after her Academy Award nomination following her role in Martin Scorsese's 'Cape Fear' remake back in 1991, it seemed a screen career just wasn't enough for budding rocker Juliette Lewis. After further blockbusters such as 'Natural Born Killers', 'From Dusk till Dawn', 'The Evening Star' and 'Starsky & Hutch', she released her debut album '...Like a Bolt of Lightning' in 2004 alongside her band Juliette and the Licks. She proceeded to release two more over the next consecutive years and made her last record, 'Terra Incognita', in 2009. She's back to acting now, but we wouldn't be disappointed to see another musical venture.

Taylor Momsen promoTaylor Momsen: Another actress who invoked her inner rock goddess was 'Gossip Girl''s Taylor Momsen, whose early acting role in 2000's 'Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas' would never have suggested a heavily eyelinered and scantily clad future. Her success as the lead singer in The Pretty Reckless has been phenomenal as of late, with her March 2014 album 'Going to Hell' reaching the top 5 in the US album chart - quite a remarkable progression since they started out in 2010. However, we are still missing her face on our TV screens and awaiting at least a temporary screen comeback.

Hilary Duff releases video for new single 'Chasing The Sun' 4305543 News

Hilary Duff unveiled the summery music video to her new single ‘Chasing The Sun’ after the track was leaked over the internet on Monday. It’s the first new material we’ve heard from Hilary after an extended break from the music scene, during which time she’s become a mother to a son, Luca.

The song’s simplicity and breeziness will be sure to win it some heavy radio airplay and TV exposure. Co-written with Colbie Caillat, the new song is overtly radio-friendly, a shiny indie-pop confection with the emphasis on the ‘pop’. The accompanying video sees Hilary play a bored-looking office worker both reminiscing about and looking forward to her holidays.

More: What We Know About Hilary Duff's Comeback Single, 'Chasing The Sun'

‘Chasing The Sun’ is the first single released from Hilary’s fifth studio album, which she began working on in September of last year and is tipped for a release before the end of 2014. Since her 2003 album Metamorphosis sold just shy of 4 million records in her native US, subsequent albums have suffered from diminishing commercial returns. 2007’s Dignity, her last effort, sold less than half a million copies by comparison.

The single, and its parent album which remains as yet untitled, will be released on RCA Records after Hilary signed a deal with the label earlier this year.

Hilary Duff - Chasing The Sun 4305236 Videos 29th July 2014

Hilary Duff is set to make a return to music with the release of her fifth studio album following up her last release, 2007's 'Dignity'. As a taster for what's to come, she has unleashed the lead single entitled 'Chasing the Sun'.

What We Know About Hilary Duff's Comeback Single, 'Chasing The Sun' 4298543 News

Lizzie McGuire is back! Well, not really, but Hilary Duff as a musician is back. And that's even better. The 26 year old actress/singer has kept it low key on the music front for quite a long time. Her last album, Dignity, was released all the way back in 2007, and it feels like a million years ago that her music videos were huge on TRL. Luckily, some good news: her comeback single, ‘Chasing the Sun,’ is expected to arrive very soon.

Hilary Duff Staples CenterHilary Duff's new single, 'Chasing the Sun,' will debut soon

Duff's been working on her new tunes for years, saying that she hopes to get back into music before movies again. "I would love to do mainstream movies again. Before that, I will be spending a lot of time in the studio making a new record. I really miss being on tour, recording, and creating new music," she said in 2012. However, despite all the studio time and work with producer/songwriters Matt Squire and Boys Like Girls singer Martin Johnson, not even a clip has been revealed thus far.

So, what's the deal with 'Chasing the Sun' exactly, and what's it expected to sound like? Since it's her big returning single, you can bet that it's aiming to be a chart topper, and who better than superstar Ed Sheeran to lend a hand writing it? That's right - Sheeran worked with Duff just a few months ago on her upcoming record set for release this fall. What's Ed think of the new-look Hilary? "She's more grown up now, so it's more of an adult alternative acoustic sound," he told MTV. When asked for his thoughts on the new single, he just simply called it "a good song." Classic Ed. Though we've got no insight as to which genre 'Chasing the Sun' will fall under, the adorable single art depicts a cartoon airplane flying a banner that says "Hilary Duff" during a sunset with the single title plastered up top. By the color scheme and overall feel of it, it's likely that this track is going to have a perfect summertime feel to it.

Hopefully, it works out in her favor, as her comeback efforts could have turned out much differently. Back in June, it was revealed that pop singer Charli XCX originally wrote her The Fault In Our Stars track, 'Boom Clap,' specifically for Duff until she denied it. "Hilary didn't want my song. What a life-ruiner," Charli said of the rejection. 'Boom Clap' has managed to peak on the Billboard Hot 100 at #16, so she's probably over the turn down by now. The question is - can Sheeran be enough to turn Duff back into a hit? 'Chasing the Sun' is expected to make its debut live as Hilary will perform it during a show in New York this Thursday, and you can bet the studio version will either drop that night or the following Tuesday on iTunes. Whenever it comes, everyone will just be hoping that it was well worth the wait.

Aaron Carter Shouts Love For Hilary Duff, Vows To "Get Her Back" On Twitter 4101231 News

Aaron Carter has shared with the world how much he wants to get back together with actress Hilary Duff, and has vowed to win her back. The 26 year-old singer has been pining for his former flame, just two months after Hilary split from her husband, Mike Comrie. Carter's public display began on Wednesday when he retweeted a photo of Duff that described her as "flawless."

He then wrote "Don't be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever.. Like me..." before adding "I'll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don't care what ANY of you think." Carter didn't mentioned Duff by name but all hints seem to point towards his desire to reignite their romance and when a fan asked him if he was referring to his ex, he replied "Sure am."

The pop star is clearly overwhelmed by longing for the former Lizzie McGuire star and is making his intentions known now that she's single again. The pair dated between 2001 when they were 14 and 13 to 2003 after Hilary discovered that Aaron had cheated. They encountered conflict when it emerged that Carter was dating actress Lindsay Lohan at the same time, leading to a feud between Aaron's two lovers.

Duff is yet to comment on Carter's very public broadcast but she has been spending time with her ex, Comrie, leading some to believe their relationship isn't done and dusted just yet. Hilary and Mike seem to be spending time with each other for the sake of their nearly 2 year-old son, Luca. Being spotted out and about regularly with her estranged husband may be Hilary's way of saying that she's at least not ready to move on yet.

Aaron and Hilary's split may have been the love triangle scandal to rock the early noughties but the Gossip Girl actress got over the heartache pretty quickly. "We are both adults and whatever happened, happened when we were young," she told People in 2007. "It's over."

The pop star is clearly overwhelmed by longing for the former Lizzie McGuire star and is making his intentions known now that she's single again. The pair dated between 2001 when they were 14 and 13 to 2003 after Hilary discovered that Aaron had cheated. They encountered conflict when it emerged that Carter was dating actress Lindsay Lohan at the same time, leading to a feud between Aaron's two lovers.

Hilary Hasn't Replied To Aaron, But Has Been Spending Time With Her Estranged Husband.

Duff is yet to comment on Carter's very public broadcast but she has been spending time with her ex, Comrie, leading some to believe their relationship isn't done and dusted just yet. Hilary and Mike seem to be spending time with each other for the sake of their nearly 2 year-old son, Luca. Being spotted out and about regularly with her estranged husband may be Hilary's way of saying that she's at least not ready to move on yet.

Aaron and Hilary's split may have been the love triangle scandal to rock the early noughties but the Gossip Girl actress got over the heartache pretty quickly. "We are both adults and whatever happened, happened when we were young," she told People in 2007. "It's over."

Star Cross'd Lovers: Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff? 4100664 News

Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff. Hang on, what was that last one? We never realised that Aaron and Hilary were star cross’d lovers, who despite their many years apart still yearned for one another. Well, Hilary not so much. But it turns out that Aaron has long been harbouring feelings for Hilary and now that she’s split from husband Mike Comrie he ain’t afraid for the whole world to know!

Aaron took to his Twitter account to announce “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think.” Heyyyy, calm down, Aaron. We’re on your side. Although to be fair, you did allegedly cheat on Hilary and date Lindsay Lohan at the same time as her. But you know, it’s cool that you’re trying to better yourself to be a worthier man should you win her back this time round. Hilary’s always seemed like a nice girl with her head screwed on, so she deserves somebody who will treat her right.

Aaron’s also been retweeting pics of Hilary, on which on one he commented “flawless”. Hilary does look pretty great these days, being the mum of a two year old as well as going through a separation from her husband doesn’t seem to have taken it’s toll on the Lizzie McGuire actress. Perhaps it’s because Hilary and Mike are still close and are making sure that they continue co-parenting Luca despite their split.

Aaron CarterAaron Carter - Will He Win Back Duff?

The couples show of unity isn’t deterring Aaron who advised his Twitter followers “Don’t be that stupid douche that loses the love of your life forever...Like me...”. Aaron sounds particularly wistful here, although his cries for Hilary’s attention don’t seem to have turned her head.

Aaron’s had a tough few years, including the loss of his sister Leslie 2012 as well as spending some time in rehab to deal with emotional issues. Even if Hilary doesn’t see the Crazy Little Party Girl singer as a (recycled) love interest, maybe the pair could become friends again.

Aaron isn’t the only forlorn fella trying to win back his ex via the medium of the internet. Double B (Bouffanted-Bieber) has recently posted a pic of Selena Gomez on his Instagram account with the caption “most elegant princess in the world”. Sorry, Justin, but barf. Justin Bieber’s recent behaviour, along with the constant string of women that he is linked to, make this latest attempt to win Selena back seem far too sycophantic. Selena doesn’t seem to have responded to Bieber’s olive branch, we wonder whether it will lead to a reconciliation between the pair or if she's had enough of Bieber's bad behaviour.

Do you think Hilary and Selena should go back to their old beaus, or is it healthier to leave the past in the past?

The 'Lizzie Maguire' star has always praised her soon-to-be ex-husband in public and openly expressed her love for him.

Duff also gushed about the former ice hockey player's parenting skills, "He's an amazing father," she said. "He's so patient and loving and involved. He's all the things that I knew that he would be."

Hilary Duff and her ex-NHL star other half Mike Comrie have called it quits and decided to separate after more than three years of marriage.

The former Lizzy Maguire star and former hockey star Comrie have not given any other reason as to why their marriage has failed, but the pair will remain in close contact despite their split for the benefit of 1-year-old son Luca. According to Hilary's mother, Susan Duff, speaking to TMZ, the pair have already decide to keep joint custody of Luca, but will look to continue their life with other people. Susan told TMZ that she is sad to see the two separate, but in her view "They're better friends than a married couple."

The 26-year-old actress married 33-year-old Comrie in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara back in August, 2010, and seemed to be going from strength to strength in their relationship with each passing year. However, in the month often referred to as 'Divorce Month,' owing to the pressures of the holiday season resulting in a number of relationships reaching breaking point, this is the latest big name relationship to succumb to the January curse.

The pair were last spotted together on New Years Eve, with Hilary posting a picture of the two before they hit the town for celebrations on her Instagram account, with the snap offering no indication of their imminent split.

Hilary Duff & Husband Mike Comrie Announce Separation 4017621 News

Hilary Duff and her husband, Mike Comrie, announced their separation today (Friday 10th January). A statement was released by Duff's representative, speaking exclusively to People, who announced the couple "have mutually decided to an amicable separation."  The release continued by claiming the two will "remain best friends and will continue to be in each other's lives."

The separation does appear, at this very early stage, to be amicable and 26-year-old Duff tweeted, an hour ago, on her and 33-year-old Comrie's behalf. She thanked fans for their well wishes in a tweet which reads: "Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative of all your kindness and well wishes. Not an easy day but we're getting through it together."

This amicability has further been emphasised by Duff's mother, Susan. Susan Duff spoke to TMZ and said that, although she loves her son-in-law, the couple are "better friends than a married couple."

Duff first met Canadian Ice Hockey player Comrie in 2007 and they married in August 2010. They have one son together, named Luca Cruz Comrie, who is twenty-one months old.  The issue of custody has been raised and, according to People's sources, they will co-parent their son. The representative's release also referred to this aspect of their relationship, stating "They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time." 

January is often hailed as 'divorce month', as The Huffington Post blog reports, owing to the large number of relationships which end following the pressures of the holiday season. It's hardly surprising that so many divorces are filed during the first month of the year. Duff and Comrie's happens to be the first high-profile celebrity separation of the year. Here's an unhappy thought, as we're only a third of the way through January, could there be more to come?
