Beyoncé has been named the #1 "fantasy girlfriend" in an online poll ranking the 99 Most Desirable Women by readers of AskMen.com. Users of the site were asked to rate women according to characteristics they value in a mate — not just beauty, but also intelligence, humor, charisma and ambition. Despite the focus on the inside, beautiful girls still finished first, with runner-up Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba — last year's #1 — rounding out the top three. Shakira, Jessica Biel, Angelina Jolie and Elisha Cuthbert also made the list's top 10.
A 16-year-old from New York is fighting back against an online piracy suit filed by the Recording Industry Association of America. AP reports that Robert Santangelo, who has been sued by five record companies alleging copyright infringement that occurred when he was as young as 11, denies distributing music online. In his countersuit, Santangelo accuses the recording industry of violating antitrust laws, conspiring to defraud the courts and making extortionate threats. If Santangelo's name sounds familiar, it's because he's the son of Patti Santangelo, the 42-year-old suburban mother of five who famously refused to settle with the RIAA when she was sued in 2005. While the RIAA dropped its suit against Patti in December, the group then sued Robert and his sister Michelle (now 20). Robert's countersuit includes claims that he never sent copyrighted music to others, that recording companies promoted file sharing before turning against it and that all the music claimed to have been downloaded was actually owned by his sister on store-bought CDs.
