Will Smith used to have the hots for Beyoncé Knowles.

But don’t tell his wife — she already knows. Jada Pinkett Smith says that her “Men In Black” hubby had a “crush” on the “Dreamgirls singer” — after he had a thing for Salma Hayek. But that’s OK, Pinkett says. She had her own outside-the-marriage infatuation.

“Will and I both have our little Hollywood crushes,” the “Collateral” star says in an upcoming issue of Tango magazine. “For me, it used to be The Rock [wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Douglas Johnson]. For Will, it was Salma Hayek and then Beyoncéfor a while.”

In fact, while some Hollywood spouses get nervous about being married to a sex symbol, Pinkett is so comfortable with her husband’s hottie status that she says she wishes he’d do more on-screen smooching. “I wish Will would do more [love scenes]!,” Jada shares,  “People want to see that.”

Aiken’s creative writing project
Clay Aiken is giving the finger — oops, make that a hand — to the tabloids.

The “American Idol” runner-up is so miffed about what he says are fabricated tales and pics involving his sex life that he’s invited fans to do a little creative writing about him.

“It seems over the past few weeks, the tabloids and gossip mongers have had their hands full coming up with new and exciting ‘scandals’ for me to be a part of. Yet, for all of their efforts to be on the ‘cutting edge’ and the forefront of bull---- journalism, it seems that some of them may be running out of ideas and resorting to recycling and re-hashing some of their older tall tales,” Aiken recently wrote on his blog. “With this in mind, we thought maybe we would try to give them a finger... er... a hand.”

The “Invisible” singer then invites fans to “Build-Your-Own-Scandal.” He explains: “Come up with the most outlandish story you can that places me (either alone or with others close to me) in a really juicy, tawdry, scandalous, shameful story. Then, use any photos, videos, audio clips of me that you can find along with your favorite multimedia enhancing/‘doctoring’ program (like a Photoshop or a sound/video editor) to create your ‘evidence’! Maybe you have ‘pictures’ of me being ‘abducted by oversized turnips’ or ‘video’ of me ‘dancing with a three-legged gorilla.’ Be creative!”

Notes from all over
Mandy Moore says she gets pressure to be skinny. “I’m not like a toothpick, and I never will be,” the “Because I Said So” star tells Seventeen. “I’m just a regular-looking person — and that’s OK. It’s taken a while to come to grips with that since it’s definitely not the norm in my business. But like, who cares? I want to be healthy, but in an industry where you can’t wear a sample size because it’s like a 0 or a 2, it makes you feel bad about yourself. To go to a photo shoot, it’s like, ugh, God, can’t you just at least get a regular size, like a 6 or 8 or something?” ... In another attempt at a comeback, Michael Jackson has hired Simon Fuller, the man behind the Spice Girls and "American Idol," to help revive his career ... Jamie Foxx says his parties are as good as those given by party maestro Diddy — they’re just smaller. “P. Diddy throws the biggest parties, but mine are small and potent,” Foxx said.” I just invite the right people, so I am efficient with my parties.”
