Garth Brooks surprised longtime girlfriend Trisha Yearwood by popping the question onstage during a concert at Buck Owens's Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Calif., in 2005.

Just because you can afford designer duds doesn't mean you always have to wear them! Christina Aguilera and husband Jordan Bratman doff their clothes once a week for "naked Sundays."

We cook naked."
