Seventeen Says The Darnest Things: Spring Break Edition

This month’s Seventeen cover was completely unlike any other I’ve ever seen. You see, normally the covers include one headline about how to look CUTE!, another about how to look NATURALLY PRETTY, and one that’s included to entice scandal-seeking teens (previous examples: “The Real Deal About Porn.” )

Girl Crush: Hayden Panettiere

Despite the fact that I have issues pronouncing her last name, I have a huge girl crush on Hayden Panettiere. Hayden has been around for awhile - starring in commercials at 11 months old, stealing the show at 11-years-old in Remember the Titans, and making appearances on The Guiding Light and One Life to Live - but my crush developed while watching her as Clare on Heroes, one of the kick-ass female leads.

Girl Crush: Blake Lively

I'm suffering from major Gossip Girl withdrawal. Mainly because it means I don't get to see the lovely Blake Lively grace the screen each week as the socialite Serena van der Woodsen. I'll just have to Netflix Season 1 on DVD to get me through the summer months...

Girl Crush: Amy Poehler

Anyone who knows me know that I have a weak spot for funny people. Like, really, really ridiculously funny people. If you can't make me laugh, then I want nothing to do with you. On the flipside, if you can make me ROFL, there's a place in my heart for you. And if your name is Amy Poehler, I'll even share dessert with you (and I don't share dessert with anyone).

Girl Crush: Isla Fisher

It's no secret that I have a soft spot for Aussies, and the lovely Isla Fisher is no exception. Even if she's a lady. While the Australian accent is always a turn-on, what really gets me weak in the knees is someone who can make me laugh...and matzoh ball soup.

Girl Crush: Beyonce

I have been following Beyonce (and by "following," I mean, "covering my wall/locker with her posters") ever since I heard her song “Say My Name.” From the days of Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s to her new hot hit “Single Ladies,” she has been sharing her talent for more than fifteen years!

Girl Crush: Nicole Richie

Since her debut on the ridiculous reality series The Simple Life in 2003, Nicole Richie has been one of the most intriguing socialites to watch. Soon after entering the celebrity sphere, she was arrested for possession of heroin while driving with a suspended license. Three years later, she was detained for driving down a California highway in the wrong direction (high on Vicodin and marijuana… oops?) and slammed with a DUI.

Girl Crush: Jessica Biel

Who was voted “The Sexiest Woman Alive?” Oh yes, that would be my new girl crush, Jessica Biel. And for good reason. Not only is Ms. Biel really freaking sexy, but she plays it up with her uncanny ability to pull off any fashion look, from “cute and casual” to “sexy in style."

Girl Crush: Heidi Klum

When I'm not sitting around being insanely jealous of Heidi Klum, I'm crushing on her. Obviously, I'm jealous because at 35, and having popped out three kids, Heidi still looks insanely hot naked.

Girl Crush: Ellen Page

Ever since her role in Juno, I've had an unhealthy crush on Ellen Page. While she's not as mainstream as our past girl crushes, this doesn't make her any less deserving of the title.

Girl Crush: Kate Hudson

My feelings for Kate began to blossom the first time I saw her in Almost Famous and now it's a full-blown love affair. She has it all: beauty, talent and that precious boy, Ryder Robinson.

Girl Crush: Maggie Gyllenhaal

While I must admit that I crushed on her brother (damn you, Reese Witherspoon) long before discovering my love for...

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Playing For the Other Team

I like boys. A lot. But that doesn’t mean I can’t admire a lady from time to time. Even though...
