In a new twist on monetizing the now already 27′ long fame of Miley Cyrus some smart guys in the UK, who clearly were wearing online glasses, looking at dollar signs on their screen, now risked to get sued.
Sued by Miley Cyrus. Over a doll of the teen celebrity.
Read that again: sued over a doll. By Miley Cyrus.
Isn’t she a cutie? Sorry, I got sidetracked for a second… or seventeen.
But the doll in case isn’t an ordinary Miley Cyrus doll, nor is the star wearing glasses, this doll has been flying of the shelves and was sold out within 48 hours according to a spokes person of Pipedream Products, the doll’s manufacturer. Sold out minus some which have been taken off the shelves for legal reasons. Legal reasons before adolescents and basement dwellers online could order it from Amazon, which sold it the doll for around $28 in the US. Read the rest of this entry »

Just last week the group claimed responsibility for releasing new pics of Vanessa Hudgens. They also claim responsibility for pics form Demi Lovato, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera and Disney star Selena Gomez. When all is said and done, 50 female celebrities have been targeted.
The FBI officially became involved last week following the newest round of Hudgens photos to be released.

It looks like Billy Ray Cyrus and wife of 17 years Tish Cyrus are not getting divorced after all.
Billy met with the ladies of The View for a taping that will air Friday and revealed that his wife and the mother of his five children will be staying with him.
You may recall that Cyrus recently blasted Disney’s Hannah Montana for “destroying his family.” At that time Tish and Billy were estranged and Miley Cyrus was smoking salvia.
Now Billy says of his Hannah statement:
Hannah Montana didn’t ruin my family. Fame did…I’ve dropped the divorce. I want to put my family back together … Things are the best they’ve ever been. Billy went on to add, “I feel like I got my Miley back,” and, “I feel like we’re the daddy and daughter we were before Hannah Montana.”

Sure Miley Cyrus became a gazillionaire and Billy Ray Cyrus once again became a household name thanks to the hit Disney series Hannah Montana but now the one-time mullet wearing rocker is attacking the show for ruining his family life.
Billy told GQ Magazine in the March edition “The damn show destroyed my family” while adding that if he had a “Do-Over” card he would think twice about giving Miley her first chance at a star led career.
After making his proclamation Dr. Drew Pinsky spoke on The Joy Behar Show on Tuesday and had this to say about Disney destroying the family:

Miley Cyrus, hot off the heels of her Hannah Montana series finale will be hosting Saturday Night Live when the show airs on March 5.
It will be interesting to see if Miley appears on the spoofed out Miley Cyrus Show when she hosts, a sketch that has aired on several recent showing of the popular sketch comedy series. The Cyrus skit features relative newcomer to SNL Vanessa Bayer (pictured above with Miley Cyrus) as she plays the 18-year-old star as an “everything’s about me” type of persona. Saturday Night Live often likes to get the real stars involved in the spoofs of themselves, which could make for an interesting moment on the show.

With nearly nude photos and bong hits dominating search results in 2010, Disney teen star Miley Cyrus was ranked as the “most searched person” of 2010 by Yahoo search.
Yahoo released their results on Wednesday and as expected top entertainers made the list.
Notable mentions included Britney Spears at number 10, although she should move up the list in 2011, having not released a CD in 2 years. Also included is Justin Bieber at a surprisingly low number 7, Kim Kardashian (Google’s top searched star) at number 4 and Lady Gaga at number 5.
Just as impressive is the number of celebrities who managed to make Yahoo’s overall search list. Below you’ll find the Top 10 searches overall on Yahoo.

It’s been discovered that Miley Cyrus’ reps tried to cover up the stars recent marijuana smoking “bong” video.
A source close to the incident told TMZ that a college student who came into possession of the video reached out to Miley’s reps and asked if they wanted a copy of the video, Miley’s reps then reportedly discussed an even exchange.
A rep from Miley’s team eventually headed out to the students campus and offered them a brand new MacBook Pro for their old Mac Book Pro which contained the video, the student agreed and made the swap. It’s reported that the same reps then made another computer swap for another student who had the video but eventually enough copies existed and the video leaked.

Hannah Montana says it best “Nobody’s Perfect” and TMZ wanted to prove that point about Montana’s alternate personality Miley Cyrus, showing off a video of the young superstar as she takes bong hits while laughing uncontrollably.
The video was grabbed from a cell phone and while the substance has not been revealed, it’s pretty obvious what Cyrus was smoking.
Here’s the Miley Cyrus bong smoking video:
It looks like Hannah Montana’s final season couldn’t come at a better time, between half naked photos, drug use and reports of Miley giving 40 year old men lap dances at clubs, it could have been a PR nightmare.

Miley Cyrus has entered her adult years! The teen star officially turned 18 on Tuesday.
Cyrus spent her 18th birthday making out with Avan Jogia and chain smoking at Hollywood hotspot Toursadale.
Left off the guest list? Godmother Dolly Parton who has constantly spoke out against Miley’s often raunchy adult side, including her love of giving 40 year old men lap dances.
Parton said of Miley:

Miley Cyrus debuted her new music video today, the song is titled “Who Owns My Heart?” and is the singers international single that includes a slightly darker and more mature theme than past Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus videos.
Here’s the video:

If Justin Bieber has his way, he’ll be taking over for John Travolta in a new remake of the popular musical Grease.
Not only does Bieber want the role, he wants Miley Cyrus to take over the Olivia Newton-John role of Sandy in the movie.
Bieber says of the Disney star:
“I would go for Miley Cyrus without hesitation. She can sing, dance and act,” the “Someone to Love” idol, 16, tells London’s The Sun.
Bieber has also thrown out Cheryl Cole’s name for a role in the movie, but apparently more for aesthetics:
“I would love to include Cheryl Cole as well. She would look great in the Rydell High cheerleading uniform.”
Justin has made no qualms in the past about his boy crush on Cole.
The Beibs even thinks Susan Boyle would be perfect for the remake, specifically for the role of Principle McGee, but only if they could turn her role into a singing one:
“I am obsessed with Susan. When I look at her original audition it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.”
Now I just wish they would let Grease die, it’s been too many times as it is.

Miley Cyrus wants to distance herself from her soon to end Disney days and PopEater is reporting that she’s taken the next step in that departure by playing a role in LOL: Laughing Out Loud an upcoming film where she’ll play a “teenage Aphrodite, minus the confidence.”
The movie is an English-language version of a French coming-of-age film and focuses on the mother and teenage daughter communication dilemma.
In the movie Miley’s character loses her virginity, kisses a female friend on the lips, gets drunk, gets high and shows her mom (played by Demi Moore) her Brazilian wax, although the last one is by accident.

Gotta love teen celebrity gossip…it looks like teen sensation Miley Cryus is mad at Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen after Momsen slammed the constant comparison to herself and Miley, calling Miley’s music “Disney Bubblegum Shit.”
Here’s the full Momsen rant during an interview earlier this month:
“I’m not looking to be Miley f*cking Cyrus. I don’t care about the fame. I do it because I love music. I like making records and if people like them, then we’ll go along for the ride,” and “I’m not dissing Miley personally. However, I do think the Disney bubblegum s*** that the world is living right now is pathetic. I thought we passed that repression.”
I don’t see the big deal, pretty much everything Momsen said is correct and she never attacks Miley directly.

Miley Cyrus has an ear tattoo that’s been gaining quite a bit of buzz this week, however the tattoo may actually be a few months old.
According to PopCrunch, the tattoo which is composed of the word “Love” is located on Miley’s right ear (pictured) and was spotted this past Wednesday while Miley was at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Inside Miley Cyrus, there’s a big girl waiting to get out. But can someone please tell her she’s not a big girl just yet? She’s not even legal for a few more months, yet last year she did a lapdance for producer Adam Shankman a (gay) 44 year-old man, and earlier this year she did a photo shoot in a corset. Now she’s performing for kids in skimpy outfits (a olive-colored one-piece leotard/ bustier/ bathing suit with “nude” leggings and black high-heel “come-eff-me-boots”) and rubbing her hand suggestively along her hip and thigh.
Now, it’s understandable that she doesn’t get the TV show Glee, and can’t “suspend her disbelief,” despite her background, but how does she not get that she’s behaving inappropriately? As far as I can tell, daddy Billy Ray Cyrus has don’t anything mean to his daughter, so she’s not a head case like some of her elder sister celebs.
So what’s going on with all these “dress up” games? And how come she’s saying that she’s not a fan of pop music? Isn’t that what she’s all about? Well apparently not, as her Can’t Be Tamed video, off her upcoming album of the same name, shows. In it, she’s wear a black one-piece, looks kind of like a goth-y Mary Kate or Ashley Olsen. Oh wait, she’s some mythical creature, the Avis Cyrus (?), and she has large black wings. And according to the lyrics, she “goes through guys like money.”
Hmm, yes. Maybe she and Avril Lavigne can compare notes about how tough they are. But at least Avril’s of age. I really find it hard to buy this new pop-punk Miley at the (maybe not so) tender age of 17. Then again, how many other “sweet” little lala land girls went on to be Monster Sluts successful adult entertainers? I’ve lost count.
Christina Aguilera has postponed her 2010 summer tour until 2011, citing a busy schedule promoting her new album Bionic and the film Burlesque. Huffington Post says it’s because her new single tanked. Well so what. She pulls the fewest antics of stars her age and boy can she wear clothes. Or as evidenced above and below. not wear them.
David Hasselhoff is said to have been hospitalized in LA this past weekend, possibly for another drinking binge — something that’s already happened to him several times in the past few years. It makes me wonder if the first thing PR people teach actors is how to deny everything.
Bret Michaels, who has been in hospital at least three times this year, won Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice reality show and says in a Facebook note that while he’s not 100% yet, he has “every intention of trying to continue the tour starting Friday in Biloxi.” On the other hand, he skipped the Celebrity Apprentice afterparty.
Brittany Murphy’s widower, writer/ director/ producer Simon Monjack, was due for heart bypass surgery, which he kept putting off. Unfortunately, he put it off for too long, passing away last Sunday night of a heart attack at 39. Brittany was another entertainer who went to soon, dying of cardiac arrest in Simon’s home in December. She was laid to rest on Christmas Eve. Her mother Sharon, who lived with the couple, was the unfortunate person who found discovered Brittany and Simon unconcious in both situations.
Slipknot bassist Paul Gray passed away on Monday at 38. No cause of death has been announced yet. The band were known for their ‘dark metal’ sound and for wearing masks.
Miley Cyrus says that she’s not going to go to college right now. I guess if you’re already a billionaire at 17, going to college doesn’t seem like a worthwhile prospect. On the other hand, she says that her grandma went back to college at 62. Ok, good luck with that plan then.
Iran has freed award-winning Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi on about $200K in bail. Panahi, who was jailed two months ago on poorly specified charges, went on a hunger strike. At least one social media campaign, on Facebook, was launched in hopes of having him released.

A lot more celebs have tattoos than many of us might have guessed, but the latest bunch of misfits to get some ink done are Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears. Lindsay had a swallow (above; pic: Starcasm.net) inked on the less fleshy part of her right forearm (i.e., probably somewhat painful). The swallow is said to be similar to the one for the Chanel logo.
Well at least LiLo’s tat isn’t too stupid. Brtiney, on the other hand, supposedly paid $5K for a red crown — as in what a queen would wear on her head, except Brit got it inked on her butt cheek. For $5,000. No pics have surfaced yet of this ridiculous waste of money. (I think I need to move to Lala land and take up a new profession.) Maybe she’ll tweet a pic to her followers on Twitter. After all, she’s about to have the most followed Twitter profile, about to beat out Ashton Kutcher.
Miley Cyrus has what seems like an innocuous tat, with the word ‘love’, but it it’s on her right ear. Considering the actual location, which is not very fleshy, it was probably a painful inking to sit through. That still doesn’t make her a big girl now, and hopefully she saves the bump-and-grinding of older men until she’s at least of age.
Avril Lavigne might be a bit tougher than I’ve given her credit for. She’s on the cover Inked magazine and apparently she has the four-letter word “F*CK” on her rib cage. Not sure how long she’s had it, but it’s the full word, not the censored version. As in forever. Until she dies. Unless she gets painful laser surgery to remove it. Yeah, that’s really the kind of girl you want to take home to mom. Who knew Canadian chicks could get so tough, swearing like a sailor, eating Tim Horton’s donuts and playing in the snow all year. Maybe Lindsay and Avril can have another fight, this time over who has the stupider tattoo. Wonder what they’ll tell their respective grandchildren.
Wow these are tough starchicks. Ryan Phillippe is a bit of a softie in comparison. He has a tat of his son and his grandfather, as a symbolic gesture, since the two never met. Aw.
Supermodel Naomi Campbell might have a problem on her hands. She’s been asked to testify at an international war crimes trial because she might have received a “blood diamond” from an African warlord. In fact, Campbell might have received several uncut diamonds, according to a modeling agent, Carole White. Actress Mia Farrow might also be called to the trial, as a witness. If that news makes you think too hard like it did me, just concentrate onthe pic of a naked Naomi above.
Lindsay Lohan has had a hard week of partying in Cannes, and trying to come up with creative excuses for why she didn’t make it back to LA this morning for her court hearing. While the judge in her case did issue an arrest warrant, Lindsay’s bail deposit (10% of the $100K) has been paid and the warrant was recalled. So she won’t be arrested up on her return, but she sure has some ‘splainin to do, particularly the statement to US Magazine that her father had someone steal her passport.
Jennifer Aniston’s age must be catching up. She actually asked to be retouched on her new film, The Switch (Aug 20th), after watching cuts. Ah well, it’s all relative, I guess. Seriously, I could have sworn that ‘yesterday’ she was only 30-something and vibrant. Now she’s 40-something. And still pretty vibrant, if you ask me. Many women would be happy to look as youthful as she still does. Anyway, here’s a gratuitous pic of her, looking every bit of a film goddess.
It’s understandable that doctors would be worried that Kelly Preston is pregnant at 47, but she has already had two children, so being pregnant is said to be easier. (My grandmother had her 9th at 45.) However, doctors are concerned for Preston because older pregnancies bring increased risk of illnesses such as gestational diabetes. Increase of Down’s Syndrome in the child is also an issue. This makes me wonder how several 60-70 year old women have been having children thanks to advances in fertility science.
Miley Cyrus for Lilith Fair? Gahhh!! What a huge disappointment for a music festival that I have the utmost respect for. Or had. Sarah McLachlan’s eaten too many vegetarian meals and lost her mind. I have never heard Miley Cyrus’ music but I know I’d never associate her with any single artist ever attached to the Lilith Fair. It’s not like the girl’s head isn’t big enough. But maybe Sarah’s 8 year-old daughter, India, has something to do with the request. Then again, Miley did work with rapper Lil Jon to remix her new single, “Can’t be Tamed.” Maybe she’ll gain some big girl cred in a way that wearing corsets and grinding her underage body into a adult man won’t give her.
