Picking Hollywood's finest for our Valentine's single teen heartthrob list turned out to be more of a challenge than I thought it would. There were so many guys that came to mind, but not all could be included. Some were cut simply because they have a significant other and "single" was a key criteria, but some were for other reasons. Here's who didn't make the cut:
Corbin Bleu - Yes, Corbin is a cutie. He can sing, he can dance — he is even single! And I apologize to all you Bleu birds out there, but I have to say this: Corbin is just plain boring. Come out with a steamy music video, CB! It takes more than a pretty smile to be a heartthrob these days.
Ed Westwick - Oh Chuck Bass, with your red velvet suits and penchant for burlesque shows, who doesn't love you? Apparently your castmate Jessica Szorh (Vanessa to those that go by character name only) feels the same — last week while courtside at a Knicks game you engaged in a PDA-session that crushed the dreams of many, present company included. I think the CW needs to implement a rule in which there can only be one inter-show romance at time and Penn and Blake got there first.
All of the Jonas Brothers - Every Jonas has a girlfriend! I would've bet money Kevin was single, but alas, a search showed that he too has a female to accompany him on triple-dates with Joe and Camilla and Nick and Selena. Love bugs indeed.
Anyone we missed that puts you into cardiac arrest? Let us know!
The Jonas Brothers joined their fans at Madame Tussauds in New York's Times Square to unveil their new wax figures. We know what you're thinking: Didn't they already do this last summer in Washington, D.C.?
The answer is yes! But, the guys have re-unveiled the wax versions of themselves for the New York museum. Nick, Joe and Kevin are in New York prepping for their big "Saturday Night Live" debut this weekend, where they are set to be the show's musical guests. But before they burn up the "SNL" stage, they took some time out of their busy rehearsing schedule to pose with a select group of 75 fans at the famed wax museum. Read More...
Dear First Family:
First off, congrats! This is truly a historic occasion. We wish you all the best as you embark on this challenging and exciting time in American history. I'm sure it will be interesting for all of us as Americans.
But next, we have to thank you for giving us an equally historic occasion: a Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas reunion hug caught on tape! That's right. You, our country's new first family, have brought together the former king and queen of Disney. Read More...
I was sitting around waiting for the always swoon-worthy Jonas Brothers to hit the stage for the "Kids' Inaugural: We Are the Future" concert, when my co-worker Alex Shapiro made a shocking revelation: He was very, very excited to see the guys perform "Ladybug."
Hey, Alex ... I think you meant you were excited to hear "Lovebug," but then again, who wasn't?
We know there were two girls in particular in the crowd who were beyond "Burnin' Up" for Joe, Nick and Kevin to take the stage: Sasha and Malia Obama. They were dancing in the aisles as the guys ran through a string of hits: "S.O.S.," "Lovebug," "Burnin' Up" and their new single "Tonight."
OK, so it seems that every day we're learning something new about Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas. But then again, there are those little things you forget about the boys. So, we decided that in honor of their pop-week MVP status, we'd round up all those little-known facts about the teen heartthrobs.
Here's five things you might not know about the Jonas Brothers.
1. They would love to make a movie with Ben Stiller. "I love Ben Stiller and we met him just recently," Joe said. "We were talking with him about doing a movie."

The Golden Globes were back this year in a big way, and some of our favorite young stars joined their elder celebrity statesmen and -women for the festivities. From the Jonas Brothers to the "High School Musical" cast, the pop stars, small-screen beauties and blockbuster sweethearts were out in full force. So how did these fresh faces fare on the red carpet? Here is our opinion. (Click on the names for photos to refresh your memory.)
Blake Lively: Thumbs down. The "Gossip Girl" star is usually a hit on the red carpet, but this one was certainly a miss. The dress itself is beautiful, but it didn't seem to fit her and the color of the dress did not match her skin tone. Also, she could have done something with her hair. It seems this is the only style she is comfortable going for. Next time, take a risk, Blake!
The Jonas Brothers: Nick Jonas: Thumbs down. Velvet jacket, no tie — you should know better. It's the Golden Globes! Kevin Jonas: Thumbs up. Never can go wrong with a classic tux. Joe Jonas: Thumbs up. The red shirt underneath his suit was a good choice. Read More...
Joe Jonas isn't afraid of a sleeveless shirt, but it looks like the kid is afraid of a bra. A video posted on YouTube, from a concert back in August, shows a rabid JoBro fan partaking in the time-honored concert tradition of tossing underwear at a pop star.
Joe, not realizing at first what's being tossed at him, goes to grab the item of clothing. Upon seeing that it's a bra, he decides not to follow through on the catch, while brothers Nick and Kevin, along with Demi Lovato, sing "This Is Me."
Judging by the reaction on his face, you can almost hear him saying, "Eww!" But no worries: Joe has a sense of humor about the whole thing, laughing about it to some minion hanging around backstage.
We here at MTV News are a pretty diverse bunch, so the views expressed by some in our more official-type year-end lists (like James Montgomery's Top 25 Albums and Best Songs, and the Mixtape Monday Awards) are not necessarily shared by the rest of the newsroom. So, this week we gave everyone else a chance to chime in with their own lists and explain (or defend) their choices. You'll find the staff faves of 2008 all together here.

Let's face it, 2008 was the year of the pop artist. And, since I am the resident pop expert around these parts, I decided to make my top 10 list all about the greatest pop albums to hit the charts in the last 12 months.
10. Pink, Funhouse: Her tough-girl attitude paid off with this album. She performed her single, "So What," at the VMAs and soon after, it was everywhere. Read More...
In an apparent effort to prove that despite losing his controversial BBC Radio 2 show in October, he's still one wild and irreverent guy, Russell Brand is once again picking on the Jonas Brothers. When UsMagazine.com asked him whom he'd like to kiss at midnight on New Years Eve, the British comedian and former VMA host quipped: "I think all of the Jonas Brothers."
"But very gently and consensually," he added at the Los Angeles premiere of "Bedtime Stories" on Thursday. (Please keep in mind that Nick Jonas is only 16 and Brand is 33, so it's really sort of a creepy statement to make.) Read More...
Last month, Camilla Belle found herself in the spotlight when it was reported that she was dating teen heartthrob and "Lovebug" video co-star Joe Jonas. Soon after, pictures surfaced of Joe and Camilla, along with Kevin and Nick Jonas, vacationing in Mexico. But things got complicated when Joe's ex Taylor Swift began telling the press that he left her for Camilla, a claim he later denied.
Then a week later, Camilla was seen cavorting with Robert Pattinson at the "Twilight" premiere in L.A. It was then discovered that the two were also seen together hanging out at another Hollywood function only a month before. The photos got everyone asking: Are Joe and Camilla over already, or are Camilla and Robert just friends?
