Some make their debut this year, others are veterans. Many of them are double and triple threats with success in multiple disciplines. Here's a look at a few of the stars:
-- Justin Timberlake - With only one more year before he's "too old,"
Justin has been on the list five times since 2000. What's keeping him
hot? Helping make Snoop Dogg's "Signs" a hit and his upcoming film
debut in Edison.
-- Jesse McCartney - Is he Justin's heir apparent? From boy band to solo
singing career (top-selling CD Beautiful Soul) to acting
(WB's Summerland), Jesse makes his debut on the list at only 18.
-- The O.C. - The cast of TV's "it" show makes its 2nd "25 Hottest"
appearance - sans Ben McKenzie, already 26.
-- Lindsay Lohan - This "it" girl makes her second appearance on the list
after moving from the big screen to music. She's bounced back from
controversy to remain one of the hottest stars around.
-- Ashlee Simpson - Speaking of dealing with controversy, Ashlee
rebounded from a Saturday Night Live flop and Orange Bowl boos to sell
millions of albums and sell out a headlining tour.
-- Destiny's Child - How many groups can have all its members go solo
only to reunite to come back bigger than ever?
-- Avril Lavigne - When the whispers, "Is Avril over?" surfaced, Avril
answered by selling more than 2 million copies of her sophomore album
Under My Skin worldwide.
-- Jessica Alba - Faded after Dark Angel but has re-emerged, starring in
summer blockbuster The Fantastic Four.
-- Lords of Dogtown - Sure to be the teen movie of the summer, guys will
love these skateboarders and girls will think they're hot.
-- T.I. - The hottest new rapper is on his way to multi-platinum status.
He's also started a clothing line and a construction company that
builds low-cost housing.
