Miss America Is 'Mature Beyond Her Age'

Newly crowned Miss America, Teresa Scanlan, is very much a Miss: she is only 17 years old. Scanlan is the youngest contestant to win in over 70 years and her parents say they always knew she was wise beyond her years."She's certainly mature beyond her age," her father Mark Scanlan tells the The Lincoln Journal Star. "Most people take her for at least six years older."

Scanlan graduated early from Scottsbluff High School in the spring of 2010 after taking a double load of classes and has deferred enrollment until this fall for Patrick Henry College.Her mother Jamie added: "She's an independent young woman and always has been."

Some think being an old soul may have even hurt her in past pageants: "She didn't win because [the judges] thought she was too mature," Miss Nebraska co-executive director Jay Engel says. "Teresa is very, very well-spoken. She's very intelligent and talented."

The young beauty's platform was "Eating Disorders: A Generation at Risk" and her talent segment was piano, in which she blew viewers away with a rendition of "White Water Chopsticks" which some believed she composed at a professional level.Scanlan will appear on The View on Monday and ring the NASDAQ Stock Market bell on Tuesday.

Steven Tyler: 'American Idol' Isn't Best Way to Find Talent

Steven Tyler – who has joined the reality TV talent show as a judge this season – always believed years of hard work is a better way to become a star but knows times have changed.The Aerosmith frontman said: "I always thought that in order to become an American Idol, or any kind of idol, you have to pay your dues. But, today's a different world."

The 62-year-oldrocker went on to agree with TV talk show host David Letterman, who said he prefers musicians to have the “honest, legitimate stamp of approval” that comes from gradual success.Steven responded: "I tend to agree."However, the "Crazy" hitmaker admitted he is enjoying the “fun” of looking for new talent via a television show.

He explained: "This way is more fun," he says, referring to the Idol process. "It's more excruciating -- we get to put 'em through hell and they do it, and they come out the worm-hole looking good. You'll see."

Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter Not Getting Married Anytime Soon

It looks like wedding bells are still a ways off for Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter. The Friday Night Lights star dismisses rumors that she and her Yankees slugger beau are getting ready to the tie the knot."I promise you, I'm not getting married in the next month," says Kelly in the latest issue of GQ.

Kelly also fires back at reports that she attempted to call Jeter after Delta Airlines refused to let her fly with her dog. "Do people think that somewhere in my brain, I think Derek can save me from someone telling me my dog can't fly?" she scoffs. "If that's the way I worked, he would have left me a long time ago."

Nicole Richie Throws Harlow a Star-Studded Third Birthday Bash

The cutest, most stylish celebrity kids in Hollywood all gathered at the Tree House Social Club to celebrate Nicole Richie's daughter's birthday yesterday. Little Harlow is turning 3 this week, and she had plenty of pals to wish her the happiest of birthdays.

Spotted at the fiesta: Kourtney Kardashian and her little guy Mason; Ellen Pompeo, her hubby Chris Ivery, and their extremely well-dressed daughter Stella (she had on kicks cool enough to make Justin Bieber proud); Jennifer Meyer and her son Otis Maguire; Gwen Stefani and her boys (also dressed to the nines); Jessica Alba and family, and more! 

The tots played at the venue, and were apparently even entertained by a guy dressed up as Buzz Lightyear! The Tree House Social Club offers a variety of party packages, and we're guessing Nicole splurged for the "Bells and Whistles Treehouse Bash," which includes a hot dog machine, popcorn machine, 2 hours of entertainment from a character, goody bags, Body Glimmer Art Tattoos, cupcakes, balloons, and whatever "add-ons" the new Mrs. Madden desired -- with a price tag of $2,500 and up.

Taylor Swift's Dad Sells T-Shirts at Her Shows

Taylor Swift’s dad Scott Swift is her biggest fan, and he likes to be heavily involved at her concerts, so he's happy to take on any task at her shows -- even if that means hocking T-shirts."My dad is adorably optimistic, positive, pie-in-the-sky," Taylor said. "He thinks every new song I write is my best. He sells T-shirts at my merchandise stands and hands out guitar picks to fans.”

Many fans have met Scott while at Taylor’s shows, and said how friendly he is. One fan, Emily, told how she met the former stockbroker at a concert in Washington, DC.She wrote on a fan site in June this year: “I got pit passes and met Scott (Taylor's dad for anyone unaware) He came out and gave us guitar picks then my friend and I talked to him for a minute or two by the soundbooth during ‘Hey Stephen.'

“I was so close to hugging Taylor but she had to turn around and go the other way to get back to the actual stage. But I touched her hand at one point during the show. And she looked right at me during ‘Fifteen’ on the moving stage.” Taylor also told how she takes elements of her mother’s personality into her onstage persona too.

She said: “Mom is a planner, an organizer. She’s very strong and practical. She’s the person that’ll tell me if I ever start to change my personality. The balance of the two of them created my personality.”
