Miley Cyrus and Madonna team up for Cyrus’ ‘Unplugged’ special.  Cyrus says her song “We Can’t Stop” is like an update of Madonna’s 2000 hit song “Don’t Tell Me” — so it only makes sense that the singer enlists the help of the pop icon in performing the two songs for her MTV “Unplugged” special.

“A lot of what she represented for me is a lot of what I try to represent to girls now,” Miley, 21, adds.

“Not being afraid of sexuality, and really being who you want to be and doing what you want to do … ‘Don’t Tell Me’ is basically the same message as what I’m telling my fans in ‘We Can’t stop.'”

Johnny Galecki Plays "Nice" In New Hyundai Commercial For Super Bowl XLVIII

Award-nominated actor Johnny Galecki, one of the stars of the CBS hit show “The Big Bang Theory,” will headline a 30-second, game-day Hyundai spot during Super Bowl XLVIII onFebruary 2, 2014.

The commercial, titled “Nice,” opens with Galecki behind the wheel of a brand new 2014 Elantra. When an attractive young woman pulls up next to him in the exact same Elantra, he seizes his opportunity and compliments her on their shared good taste. “Nice ride,” he says. The light turns green; a flirtatious game of one-upsmanship ensues. The comedy goes off the rails, with big surprises around every turn. Legendary comedian Richard Lewis even makes a cameo as Galecki’s passenger, adding his own rambling commentary. The creative was developed by Hyundai’s agency of record, INNOCEAN USA, and directed by Super Bowl veteran Jim Jenkins.

The spot is a milestone for Galecki. The Hyundai ad represents the first time he has endorsed a product or brand on air. With an acting career that spans more than 25 years, Galecki is known best for his roles in the award winning series “Roseanne” and “The Big Bang Theory” which enters its 7th season this year. Galecki is currently in pre-production on “Here’s Your Damn Family”, his first project as producer with Ricky Blitt and Stephen McPherson for Warner Bros TV.

“I’ve always loved Super Bowl ads – the commercials during the game are always the highlight for me,” said Galecki. “In this Hyundai spot, there’s a car chase, there’s explosions, and even a car jump – it’s exciting, cinematic and filled with humor. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”

Justin Bieber Smoked Marijuana, Drank Booze Before Arrest

WENN—Pop star Justin Bieber told police he had been smoking marijuana and drinking booze in the hours leading up to his arrest on Thursday.

The teenager was detained by cops after he was spotted allegedly taking part in a drag race in Miami Beach, Florida in the early hours of the morning, and he subsequently failed a field sobriety test at the scene.

He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) and resisting arrest without violence, and it has now emerged Bieber admitted to police officers that he had been smoking weed and drinking beer during the evening.

He had also been taking an unnamed prescription medication, and was driving on a ‘non-valid’ license, according to local cops.

A police spokesman says, “I don’t have the levels. It’s a combination, when you have narcotics – marijuana and alcohol – it’s the impairment – being impaired while you’re driving.”

The spokesman adds, “At first he was a little belligerent, questioning, using some choice words… He did acknowledge that he did take a prescription medication and that he had been smoking marijuana and that he had consumed a beer.”

The police report filed after the star’s arrest reveals Bieber had allegedly been racing his rented Lamborghini sports car at more than double the speed limit in a residential street, while the officer who detained him claimed the star stunk of booze and had bloodshot eyes.

The report also states Bieber swore at the officers and demanded to know why he had been stopped, raging at the cops, “Why are you doing this?… What did I do? Why did you stop me?”

The report goes on to reveal Bieber told the police he had been on his way home from a recording session at a studio when his car was stopped.

Bieber, who published pictures of himself driving around in the Lamborghini with a female friend prior to his arrest, was taken to a local police station before being transferred Miami-Dade County jail later on Thursday. He was still in custody as WENN went to press, but it is believed bail has been set at $2,500.

Bieber’s arrest sheet, which revealed he has been given the jail number 140003991, showed he was officially charged with DUI, resisting arrest, and driving on an invalid licence.

The driver of the other car which allegedly took part in the drag race has been named as R&B singer Khalil. The 19 year old, full name Khalil Sharief, also remains in police custody.

The British Are Coming: CNN Special Presentation of ‘THE SIXTIES Features Micky Dolenz Premieres Thursday, Jan. 30

Micky Dolez of The Monkees

Multiple Emmy® Award-winning executive producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman (HBO’s John Adams and The Pacific), and Emmy® Award-winning producer Mark Herzog (History’s Gettysburg) of Herzog & Company (HCO), will reignite the landmark musical revolution of 1964 in this special presentation from their CNN Original Series. The one-hour special, THE SIXTIES: The British Invasion will premiere on CNN/U.S. on Thursday, Jan. 30 at 9:00pmET and PT. The full 10-part episode CNN Original Series THE SIXTIES will begin in May 2014.

The British Invasion begins with the breakthrough performance of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show, which was watched by a record-setting 73 million viewers, blazing a culture-changing path through America fifty years ago next month. The Beatles’ success was quickly followed by other British bands hoping to conquer the hearts of American teens. Those siren calls of The Animals, The Kinks, The Hollies, The Dave Clarke 5, The Who, and The Rolling Stones are all revisited in this paean to the power of the music that defined a generation – and remain vital and relevant today.

The Ed Sullivan Show introducing The Beatles to America aired on Feb. 9, 1964, and their thrilling, mesmerizing appearance launched a revolution in fashion, hairstyles, advertising, politics, and sexual mores that have influenced virtually every aspect of modern American life. Throughout the special, soul song legend Smokey Robinson; Graham Nash (of The Hollies and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young); Ahmir“Questlove” Thompson, music journalist, record producer and drummer for the Grammy® Award-winning band The Roots; rock columnist David Wild; Micky Dolenz of the American musical group, The Monkees; and more, all provide insights into how the “British invasion” was actually a reciprocal flow of influences back and forth with American artists. The legendary era of Bob Dylan, Motown, The Beach Boys, and others, laid down the beats that formed the soundtrack of a generation.

THE SIXTIES: The British Invasion follows the strong ratings success of THE SIXTIES: The Assassination of JFK (1963), which was seen by 21.0 million total viewers and 8.2 million viewers in the coveted 25 to 54 age demo. The Assassination of JFK (1963) and The British Invasion will air again when full THESIXTIES series launches in May 2014. The 10 episodes of THE SIXTIES focus on the indelible impact of technology, drugs, music, “free love,” and civil rights, bringing new insights to the landmark events and extraordinary people which shaped our history and character as Americans – and changed the world.
