  • Miley Cyrus posted a cheeky (but censored) photo on twitter where she flashed her nipples. However, she wasn’t just posting it for kicks; she was applauding New York’s “Free the Nipple” stance that allows women the equal right as men to public toplessness. [Billboard]
  • Beyoncé has started to add songs from her new album, Beyoncé, to her set list on the Mrs. Carter World Tour. On Friday night she debuted “XO,” which is slated to be the second single off the album. []
