You Can Blame South Street For The New Miley Cyrus

Editor’s note:  I think there’s more blame to go around than South Street…just sayin’.

Miley Cyrus is naked on the cover of Rolling Stone, but you shouldn’t waste your energy focusing on that image because the content of the accompanying profile is far more interesting.

Rolling Stone‘s Josh Eels spent a significant amount of time with the polarizing pop star as she got “Rolling Stone” tattooed on the bottom of her feet, went out for sushi, and jumped out of a plane. But, really, the most compelling portions of the feature focus on Miley’s transition from Hannah Montana to the young woman who twerked all over MTV and America back in August.

She talks about her performance and how it’s helped her bond with another polarizing musician, Kanye West.

Editor’s note:  This is priceless and really says something.  Miley needs an intervention.  You gotta check out the picture!

Well it seems as if we weren’t the only ones completely dumbfounded by Miley Cyrus’ performance at Sunday evening’s Video Music Awards.

The pop star twerked, she gyrated, slapped a butt, and uncomfortably paraded around teddy bears during her risque number alongside Robin Thicke, even using a foam hand as a sexual prop – all while wearing a plastic bikini.  Oh, and she sang, too.

‘Dallas’ Star Larry Hagman Dies In Texas

.R. Ewing was a business cheat, faithless husband and bottomless well of corruption.  Yet with his sparkling grin, Larry Hagman masterfully created the charmingly loathsome oil baron — and coaxed forth a Texas-size gusher of ratings — on television’s long-running and hugely successful nighttime soap, “Dallas.”

Although he first gained fame as nice guy Capt. Tony Nelson on the fluffy 1965-70 NBC comedy “I Dream of Jeannie,” Hagman earned his greatest stardom with J.R. The CBS serial drama about the Ewing family and those in their orbit aired from April 1978 to May 1991, and broke viewing records with its “Who shot J.R.?” 1980 cliffhanger that left unclear if Hagman’s character was dead.

The actor, who returned as J.R. in a new edition of “Dallas” this year, had a long history of health problems and died Friday due to complications from his battle with cancer, his family said.

“Larry was back in his beloved hometown of Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved the most.  Larry’s family and closest friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday,” the family said in a statement that was provided to The Associated Press by Warner Bros., producer of the show.

Phyllis Diller, who kicked down the door for a generation of women comedians by creating one of America’s first desperate housewives, died yesterday at her Los Angeles home.  She was 95.

She had been living at home in hospice care.  She had a heart attack in 1999 and TMZ reports she recently suffered a serious fall.

Diller made her reputation as a standup comedienne who costarred in 23 TV specials with Bob Hope and later had her own ABC show.

Joan Rivers, among others, has noted she did this at a time when the comedy field, unlike today, was male-dominated.

Finally, some good news to report!  66-year-old actor Michael Douglas has announced that his tumor is gone.  Douglas has been battling throat cancer and had lost 32 pounds in the process.  His gaunt pictures have been seen on tabloid magazines and television.  Many have speculated the worst.

We wish Michael Douglas a full recovery and many years of good health!

Will 2010 Go Down In History As The Year Of Infidelity?

Geeze Louise.  Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Larry King goes and screws up his marriage too!  Looks like Tiger, David and Jesse have another adultering amigo.  Is there something in the water these celebrities are drinking??  Viagra maybe? 

I know, the Tiger thing broke in December of 2009 but it has certainly been big news for all of 2010.  Lettermen is a carry-over as well.

And no pre-nup???  Stupid is as stupid does Larry.  Did you think the 8th time was the charm?  Bangs head on computer desk!
