The most sought-after starlet in Tinseltown is a little Goldendoodle named Poppy.

According to Us Weekly, Usher bid $12,000 — beating Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr's $11K bid — to adopt the adorable cross between a golden retriever and a poodle. The bidding was done October 25 at the Pencils of Promise gala in NYC, with the money going to the organization that helps build schools around the world.

On October 26, Usher tweeted a photo of himself with his new baby: "All in the name of feline fun! It took me 2 years but I outbid everyone this year to bring Poppy home to Ush."

Feline fun? Anyway, let's hope Usher and his sons take good care of little Poppy! Pets are not prizes — they're cherished members of your family. Spoil Miss Poppy Raymond like she deserves!
