SANYA, China (AFP) – Blonde, blue-eyed American teenager Alexandria Mills won the Miss World crown for 2010 on Saturday, defeating more than 100 other hopefuls at a glittering ceremony in southern China.

Mills, an 18-year-old from the southern US state of Kentucky, wept as outgoing Miss World Kaiane Aldorino of Gibraltar placed the tiara on her head and led her to a diamond-shaped throne marking the pageant’s 60th anniversary.

The 1.75-metre (5’9″) beauty in white — a professional model listed with the Elite Models agency — waved to the cheering crowd at the 2,000-capacity Beauty Crown Theatre in the resort town of Sanya on Hainan island.

HAIKOU, China (AFP) – Rising Spanish golf star Belen Mozo said Saturday she had been charmed by actor Hugh Grant during their round at a pro-celebrity tournament — though the only Spanish he knows is swear words.

The 22-year-old had a poor afternoon at the Star Trophy in southern China, shooting four over par, but said the British charmer had cheered her up.

“He was great and he made one of my worst days very fun,” she said.

“He’s a funny guy, he made me laugh — he’s more charming in real life than in his films.”

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Jason Aldean says he didn’t worry that Kelly Clarkson might show him up on the duet they share on Aldean’s new album.

“Hell, I knew she would,” the country star admits with a laugh. “But because of the type of song it is, I knew it wasn’t something just any female singer could pull off. We needed Kelly’s soulful, breathy sound.”
