OMG OMG OMG. Hannah Montana ain’t so G-Rated anymore! Miley Cyrus, the wholesome teen with a rebellious streak (and billions of dollars) has posed – draped only in a sheet – for legendary photog Annie Leibovitz. The pics, which were taken for an article in Vanity Fair, are pretty provocative for a 15-year old whose average fan has yet to hit puberty. Her bosses at the Disney Channel are clearly pissed off by the sexy shots, as their recently released statement reveals: “Unfortunately as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”
Miley denounced the photos, alleging that she thought the pics would be “artistic” but having seen them is now “embarrassed.” But the singer apparently loved the photo when it was taken on-set, as did her parents and other handlers who were also present, claims Vanity Fair. ?Miley?s parents and/or minders were on the set all day,” the mag said. “Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.?
Vanity Fair, FTW! Poor little Miley. During these tough times of sexy scandal, we hope our star is looking deep within herself and asking that all-important question that can surely guide her along this bumpy road - “What would Britney do?” [DListed]
The last episode of Celebrity Fit Club was so good, it made Sommore do THIS:

We’re already sick of Ashlee Simpson‘s baby, and it technically doesn’t even exist yet. [Us]
The clip above comes from Mariah Carey’s performance on today’s episode of Good Morning America, and it shows an Ashlee Simpson-level snafu. At the start of her “Touch My Body” performance, her backing track comes in too early. And then a second backing track, so that the song takes on a singing-in-the-round effect. Mariah plays it off without so much as a jig, and sings the rest mostly live. But then, after the bridge a particularly impassioned pre-recorded “Touch my body!” rings out, and Mariah coos to a backup singer, “Stop singing my parts, now baby!” Uh, isn’t singing your part exactly what backing tracks are supposed to do?

Tomorrow evening, New York City is honoring hometown girl Mariah Carey by lighting up the Empire State Building lavender, pink and white (of course) to celebrate her latest chart-topping album E=MC2. For the entire weekend, the New York landmark will be lit up to celebrate the number one selling female artist of all time. We got to thinking about some other monuments that could be tweaked to honor Mimi. Take the jump to find out what else should get Mariah’d.
After Tuesday?s train wreck, how would the six Idol hopefuls fare? The musical theater songs of Sir Andrew Lord Webber, as the judges rightly noted, are more complex than most of the pop hits the contestants have so far taken on; the bigger voices carried the night, and the more musically adept performers seemed closest to making it to the next round. But how would America vote?
Won’t someone please just arrest Amy Winehouse? It’s clearly what she wants in life, more than her husband, a hit album, Grammys, and her health. Last night Wino was out in foggy London-town getting hammered at a pub, and ended her night head-butting a fellow bar patron who was trying to hail her a cab home. She also allegedly punched another customer, did drugs in the street, made out with her male companion and overturned tables in the pub. A spy even claimed that Amy was screaming, “I am a legend, get these people out. I want to take drugs.”
Officers are now officially investigating the incident(s), and Amy could very well be charged and arrested. So please, Scotland Yard, come on over and round up your girl. It’s what she wants most in this world. [The Sun]
