Kelly Clarkson

As you probably know, Kelly Clarkson was the first winner of American Idol. Since then she has been one of the most successful Idol winners with two Grammy wins, three Mtv Video Music awards, and four American Music Awards. Her most popular songs include "Because of You" and "My Life Would Suck Without You." Kelly's fifth studio album, Stronger, was released in October of this year. Check out her newest video "Stronger - What Doesn't Kill You" here . Clarkson will continue her tour in January. See tour dates here.

What is Kelly reading?

Clarkson recently tweeted, "Just finished the last book of the Hunger Games .....so good."

I highly recommend this series as well, and if you are one of the few who hasn't read it, what are you waiting for? Read it before the first movie comes out on March 23!

Tom Bergeron

Tom Bergeron is always on your TV, whether it's hosting America's Funniest Home Videos or on Dancing with the Stars. Tom even guested on a Tosh.0 episode this year. He is one busy man and always quick with a witty comment!

In addition to his hosting responsibilities, Bergeron released a book in 2009 titled, I'm Hosting as Fast as I Can!: Zen and the Art of Staying Sane in Hollywood. He is married with two children.
I recently asked Tom what he is reading.

He tweeted, "Don't have a favorite book (other than the one I wrote, of course), but just read "The Affair" by Lee Child. A Reacher novel."

Our family watches AFV all the time. Tom's comments are just as funny as the videos themselves. Watch for some holiday giggles.

Duff McKagan

Duff McKagan is one iconic rocker. Duff was bassist in the original Guns N' Roses lineup with such huge hits as "Sweet Child O' Mine," "November Rain," and "Welcome to the Jungle." Guns N' Roses will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

McKagan's band Velvet Revolver has released two hard rock albums and won a Grammy. Duff is rhythm guitarist and singer of another rock band, Loaded. Their most recent album, "The Taking," was released in April, and they just returned from a concert tour. I've seen Duff play live with both GnR and Velvet Revolver, and he's an amazing musician.

McKagan is also a writer. Since 2008, he has written a regular column for SeattleWeekly.com. Read his most recent post here. He also writes for espn.com. Duff released an autobiography in October titled It's So Easy: And Other Lies.

What is Duff McKagan reading?

Duff recently tweeted me that he is currently reading The Invisible Bridge.
He added that his favorite read this year is Lamb by Christopher Moore.

Britney Spears

Pop star Britney Spears turned 30 last week. Britney is the eighth top selling female artist in the world. Her seventh studio album Femme Fatale was released in March with hits like "Hold it Against Me." And of course everyone knows the song that propelled her to superstardom, "...Baby One More Time."

It's wonderful to see that Britney takes time to read.

What is Britney's book recommendation?
According to People.com, Britney is reading The Mastery of Love by spiritualist author Don Miguel Ruiz.

"It's basically an analysis of love and what it means to love," said Britney.

Read me baby one more time!
