Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Gossip, Rumors, Pop,

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus has hit back at critics who have called for her Bangerz Tour to be canceled.

The 21-year-old singer kicked off her raunchy world tour in Vancouver, Canada, last week and has come under fire for antics such as simulating a sex act on a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask, but Miley insists she gave fans a pre-warning her shows would be X-rated.

"You can't say I didn't warn you. Now sit back relax & enjoy the show. #bangerztour [sic]," she wrote on Twitter yesterday. The tweet was accompanied by a picture of Miley on stage in a revealing outfit exposing her butt.

The "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker then blasted her critics by telling them to "save" their outrage. "Save your complaints for the McDonalds drive thru when they forget the 'fries with that' [sic]," she quipped.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues, Parties, Rumors,

Rita OraRita Ora is on the hunt for a new home after being kicked out of her flat.

The "R.I.P." singer, who was renting a luxury west London apartment, has been asked to find a new place to live after a number of complaints about noisy late night parties. "Rita is on the move after some complaints about noise in her last place. She has already been looking at houses and wants to buy a proper home for the first time. She thinks a new home would be the perfect way to celebrate such a successful year," a source said.

The 23-year-old star's career is going from strength to strength and she was named Musician of the Year at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards last month.

The singer, who is dating DJ Calvin Harris, was threatened with eviction recently after ignoring warnings from her landlord. "Rita has been told about the noise before but she ignored it and now the landlord says she has to go. This isn't the first time she's been threatened with eviction but it's much more serious now. Rita lives in a nice building with a lot of older neighbours who aren't happy with her," an insider said.

Morrissey Slams Obama’s Thanksgiving

Morrissey with a turkey

Morrissey has criticised Barack Obama over his annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon.

In an open letter posted on fan site True To You titled "Thankskilling," the singer attacks America's animal rights record, claiming that 45 million turkeys are "horrifically abused" at Thanksgiving and that the annual holiday "supports torture." The "First Of The Gang To Die" singer wrote, "Please ignore the abysmal example set by President Obama who, in the name of Thanksgiving, supports torture as 45 million birds are horrifically abused; dragged through electrified stun baths, and then have their throats slit. And President Obama laughs. Haha, so funny! Further, the meat industry is responsible for 51 per cent of human-caused greenhouse-gas emission, therefore the embarrassingly stupid White House 'turkey pardon' is open support for a viciously cruel and environmentally irresponsible industry."

Gwyneth Paltrow Praises the Met Ball

Gwyneth Paltrow at this year's Met GalaGwyneth Paltrow has praised the Met Ball.

Although the 40-year-old actress recently slammed the Costume Institute Gala, which took place at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this month, she wrote a gushing post about it in her lifestyle newsletter Goop.

"The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different. The theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture and when the house of Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman. We got all inspired in the goop office about punk making a comeback through subtle influence and thus, we asked one of my absolute favorite websites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes (sic)," she wrote.

James Franco Angers His Neighbors

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

James FrancoJames Franco has been accused of disrupting a neighborhood by running a film company from his home.

The 34-year-old actor has angered residents in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, after he purchased a house there last summer but reportedly failed to move there, instead leaving it for the use of his production workers, who block locals' driveways with their vans.

In a complaint obtained by real estate blog LA.curbed.com, the residents wrote, "At first [we] were pleased to have Mr. Franco living next door. His work in Milk and his academic pursuits made us happy he was on our street. That is no longer the case. If, in fact, Mr. Franco has purchased the house next door, it does not appear to be inhabited by the actor; it does appear to be inhabited by several people who are working for him. The property has become a production house. In fact, Iris, who works for the actor, informed me that they are running production from the house. Iris basically informed me they could do whatever they want on their property. Really? Running a production of such impact and magnitude in a residential area doesn't violate any zoning restrictions? Are there no limits to the kinds of businesses one can run?"

iLife ‘11: Sadly, not 64 bit

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Software,

iLife 11 still 32 bit

Yesterday, Apple announced the new features and availability of iLife '11. We were definitely excited about picking it up, even though we noticed that a lot of the features that Apple was showing off in iMovie and iPhoto seemed to be fairly incremental (we aren't big users of GarageBand, so we couldn't tell you if the new features there were awesome or not.) So we figured that one unannounced "feature" would likely be that the iLife suite had been converted to 64 bit. After all, Snow Leopard has had more than enough time to mature out in the wild, and it seems that developers left and right have jumped onto the 64 bit bandwagon. That's why we were sorely disappointed when we launched Activity Monitor and found that, unlike just about every other process and application we are running on the Mac Pro, the iLife apps are still labeled as "Intel" rather than "Intel 64 bit." I guess we will have to wait and see what happens with iLife '12 or '13 at this point.


Feedback About IE8

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Microsoft,

IE logoThere is already lots of feedback on Microsoft comments pages after the launch of IE8, with some it negative, from disappearing images, printing on Web sites and searching issues. One user complained about dragging Facebook applications and photos while others complained about the install. On a positive note, one user said it “felt like Firefox, but hey, it’s functional.” We also found that IE8’s release really hasn’t affected Firefox as their users are eagerly awaiting 3.0.

Facebook Returns to Original TOS After Complaints

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, Internet,

FacebookAfter an entire Facebook group complained about their new policy change that inferred that the site would have control of their users information “forever” as opposed to until closing an account, founder Mark Zuckerberg said that they would return to their previous terms of use, at least until they work out the semantics. He said that subscribers will continue to own their information unless it has already been given out. Over 100,000 joined the People Against the new Terms of Service (TOS) Group to make their views heard.
