Cindy Crawford told British GQ, "I don’t want to be a cougar, I want to be a MILF. I hate that word cougar and what it represents." And what might that be, Cindy? MILF, on the other hand is a word "I absolutely love," she says. The supermodel also moaned, "I know 20-year-old guys don’t look at me anymore. I don’t feel it like I used to." Cindy, do you really think 20-year-olds aren’t looking at you anymore? (12/07/09)  See next page for more Cougar News.

“I’m certainly not the first person to be in a relationship with a younger man," says Demi Moore in an interview with W magazine. "But somehow I was plucked out as a bit of a poster girl.”  In the interview and in her tweets the actress, who turns 47 on November 11, states her preference for the designation "puma." (We thought the word was actually used to describe women in their thirties who date younger men but, OK, Demi, we won’t split hairs.)  (11/10/09)

"I was with my ex-husband for 11 years, but now all of the young boys are coming at me," actress Sherri Shepherd, 42, told Star magazine.

In a funny segment on The Jay Leno Show October 20, Martha Stewart joked with the host about her love life. When asked if she was into "the whole cougar thing," she mused, "hmmn, cougar’s good." The youngest man she ever dated? "I was going out with this one guy for a while. My daughter called him ‘uncle.’ But it turned out he was only about a month older than she was!"  (10/21/09)

Soprano Reneé Fleming reprises her role as the Marschallin, an 18th century Viennese general’s wife who takes a much younger lover, in Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The opera "begins with one of the most vivid depictions of sexual ecstasy in music," says the New York Times. "An orchestral buildup reaching a climax in a brace of whooping French horns. And then the real action starts."  (10/12/09)
