Taylor Swift is making her cartoon debut in the CGI-animated version of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, being produced by Universal Pictures.
Swift will voice the lead female role alongside actors Zac Efron and Danny Devito who will play the Lorax. Also voicing Zac’s grandmother is Betty White, because apparently she needs to be in every new project available.
If it’s been a while since you last read the book, it’s about a boy (Efron) who goes in search of ways to win the heart of a girl (Swift), but instead finds out about the mystical creature known as The Lorax.

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.”

Remember the good ole’ days when Rolling Stone Magazine would put actual rock stars on the cover of their magazine? Well come March 17 we will have something much less awe inspiring to look at, a picture of Jersey Shore star Snooki riding a rocket.
As expected, Snooki talks about nothing interesting in the interview, mostly picking up guys, partying and her hair. Barf.
She tells the magazine:
““If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate [watching it]. I just hate it…The only person I’ve had sex with on ‘Jersey Shore’ is my boyfriend,” and “The guys you see me bring home, we’re only cuddling and making out like any other person would do, but we’re on camera and the whole world’s seeing it, and it does look like I’m having sex.”
Snooki also reveals a bit of information about the editing process on the show:
“Obviously, they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down. That’s how I am when I party…”

While I’m not a fan of Justin Bieber’s music, I’m a big fan of the way the young 16-year-old star has been giving to charity and convincing others to give as well.
For his 17th birthday on Tuesday Bieber is asking his fans to donate money to the Charity: Water which strives to bring clean water to developing countries.
Bieber would like to raise $1,000 for every year he’s been on this planet, a total of $17,000.
On the charities own website Bieber wrote:
“Together, we’ve made a big difference for many causes. Did you know that about 4,500 kids die each day from waterborne disease? By building clean water projects for villages that need them, we can prevent this!
I want to make my birthday matter this year — let’s make it so more kids can grow up to have a 17th birthday like me. Join me to make a change.”
