Where does Anna Kournikova go shopping in Miami? What are Alex Rodriguez's favorite NYC hotels? You can now get the answers to these and other pressing questions at CelebFavorites.com, a new celebrity+maps mashup from Microsoft.

Created as a promotional vehicle for Windows Live Local it includes restaurant, hotel, shopping and cultural recommendations from 8 celebs. Others include Brittany Murhpy, Eva Longoria and Jeff Bridges.

As the Washington Post points-out: "Marketing executives inside some of the biggest technology companies can tell you that a tech gadget or service is not really "cool" until a celebrity is using and promoting it."

This joins the list of previous media-focused mashups such as those you can see at /tag/movies, /tag/television, and /tag/video.
