LYRICAL GANGSTA Duff, with Madden

At 19, Hilary Duff is old enough to write her own lyrics but young enough to think pouring the tabloid-ready details of her personal life into those lyrics is a good idea.

The Disney-bred pop star mined her breakup with Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden and his subsequent involvement with Nicole Richie for material on her new album, due out April 3.

The album's title is Dignity, and, really, what could be more dignified than publicly calling out the anorexic ex-junkie who stole your boyfriend? "Where's your dignity? I think you lost it in the Hollywood Hills," run lyrics on the title track. "Can't buy respect but you can pick up that bill."

A second verse drives the point home: "Always with Mr. Right, but then you have a fight / Run into your friend's ex, he's happy to be your next / Tomorrow's paper's coming out so kiss him fast, watch the cameras flash."
