Not to be outdone by her husband David's racy underwear ad for Armani, Victoria Beckham has taken it all off for Marc Jacobs, London's Daily Mail reports.

Posh has posed nude for a T-shirt campaign to raise awareness about skin cancer, with Vicki covering up her naughty bits (or "her modesty," as the Brits say) with her hands with a slogan that reads "Protect the skin you're in."

Victoria says her attitude to skin care has changed since she moved to L.A., no doubt because she's seen so many leathery Beverly Hills types.

"I have realized how important it is to practice safe sun for myself and to keep the skin of my three boys well-protected as well," she says.

The word about "safe sun" will support the Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group.

Odds and ends

- Actress Sean Young, who took a luxury-class ticket on the crazy train in the 1980s after some cinematic success, has entered rehab for alcohol abuse after heckling The Diving Bell and the Butterfly director Julian Schnabel at the Directors Guild of America awards on Saturday, the AP reports. Let's just hope Deckard from Blade Runner doesn't come after her next.

- In G.I. Joe casting news, Channing Tatum - who has a ton of flicks in the can but until now is most recognizable in She's the Man - has been tapped to play Duke, while Dennis Quaid fills the role of General Hawk and Arnold Vosloo (Imhotep from The Mummy series) will try on Zartan, Variety reports. Can you guess which of these three The Juice* thinks doesn't make the cut?

- A New York judge has denied Foxy Brown's request to be let out of jail so she can travel to California to have a hearing problem examined, the AP says. If she was really trying to sell her story, she would have told the judge, "What?"

Gwen Stefani is preggers again

Gwen Stefani will be taking some time off from her clothing line, perfume-selling and HP commercials to gestate a second child, London's Sun swears.

The 38-year-old singer has confirmed she is 13 weeks along with husband Gavin Rossdale's child, the paper says.

"They found out at California's Cedars-Sinai hospital and couldn't wait to share the news with everyone," a source tells the tabloid.

That's funny, because just last week her rep was denying pregnancy rumors. We understand that's normal until the first trimester is over, but our favorite Orange County girl is just playing with our emotions at this point.

"They and the whole family are delighted," Gavin's pop, Douglas, told People. And in case you're wondering, her son, Kingston, will turn 2 in May.

An Abdul video preview

Really, how many people want to see Paula Abdul resurrect her recording career? Sure, the Straight Up days were a lot of fun, but we've moved on. Besides, MC Skat Kat just doesn't do it for us anymore.

But Extra featured a behind the scenes look at Dance Like There's No Tomorrow, her new song and video produced by American Idol cohort Randy Jackson. (We're beginning to wonder if Randy is capable of ever buttoning his shirt.)

Why come back now, Paula? "If anything, just to bother Simon," she said, referring to Simon Cowell, who was nonplussed he had a teensy part in the video. Of course, the whole segment is merely a commercial for Fox's Super Bowl pregame show.
