Oops, She Did It Again…Britney Spears Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction On Stage

Pop superstar Britney Spears suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction on Saturday after her costume became unzipped while performing during her new Las Vegas residency.

The Toxic hitmaker was in the middle of her song Circus when the back of her dress opened up and nearly slipped off.

However, Spears remained ever the professional and continued to strut her stuff onstage as a back-up dancer came to her rescue and secured the zipper.

The singer kicked off her two-year residency, Britney: Piece Of Me, on Friday in front of a star-studded crowd, including Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus.

Dreams Come True: When is a Rose, Not a Rose

When producer Joel Diamond named his new song “Dreams Come True” (featuring Rebecca Holden and Abraham MacDonald) and he heard that was the theme for KCAL’s Rose Parade later this week, he thought it was a match made it heaven.

KCAL (Aida Galoussian) was contacted… as was Diamond, but the deal never happened.

No one can say why.

‘So, the song, “Dreams Come True” is not involved in the 125th Rose Parade later this week in L. A.

The official music video for the song is on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vz3nj5M8qGA

Paul McCartney in Talks to Perform Last Show at Candlestick Park

Paul McCartney is in top secret talks to perform the final show at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park before the wrecking ball demolishes the sports mecca, according to media reports.

The Beatles performed their final Stateside concert at the former home of both baseball’s Giants and football’s 49ers in August, 1966, and now venue bosses are hoping McCartney will return for one final, historic show.

The 53-year-old park will be demolished in early 2015.

One Candlestick Park official tells the San Jose Mercury News that he “remained hopeful” that the former Beatles star would take the stage one last time, and Phil Ginsberg, general manager for San Francisco’s Recreation and Parks Department, says, “Keep your fingers crossed. It’s a possibility.”

Miley Cyrus Responds to Joe Jonas Over Pot Smoking





Miley Cyrus
has hit back at Joe Jonas after he blamed her for introducing him to marijuana when they were teenagers.

Jonas opened up about his past in a revealing article for Vulture Magazine in December and claimed Cyrus and fellow Disney star Demi Lovato had urged him to try weed.

But the Wrecking Ball singer tells the New York Times she did not force the drug on Jonas, insisting everyone is responsible for their own choices.

She says, “If you want to smoke weed, you’re going to smoke weed. There’s nothing that two little girls are going to get you to do that you don’t want to do. I thought maybe he (Jonas) was saying that like it was going to make him look bada**… We were so young that it’s actually like ‘How did you get peer pressured by me?'”

Peter Capaldi Makes Debut as Time Lord in ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas Special

One goes and another comes in the Christmas episode of “Doctor Who”. Matt Smith left the sci-fi series in the special titled “The Time of the Doctor”, which introduced Peter Capaldi as the new version of the Doctor.

[SPOILER ALERT!] After saving his companion Clara from a family dinner, the Doctor and his assistant got transported to a faraway land where clothes were banned. Smith delivered one jaw-dropping scene as he got naked, but the funny moment soon ended as the Doctor learned that he’s the 13th (last) incarnation in this cycle, meaning he that he would vanish forever when he died.

The Doctor was seen aging and fighting his enemies on his own for one last time after dropping Clara back on Earth. When he’s dying, Tasha, the head of the Church of the Papal Mainframe, picked Clara up on Earth to accompany the Doctor in his final moments.

The Doctor was then transformed into a new version of himself, played by Capaldi, who’s also the first Doctor in the new cycle.
