Miley Cyrus and a little person on her tourMiley Cyrus has defended her use of little people as backing dancers.

The "We Can't Stop" star is accompanied by short people on stage for her current Bangerz Tour, but insists they are employed to have fun rather than just because of their height.

Talking to MSNBC's Ronan Farrow, she said, "We're making them feel sexual and beautiful." Speaking more specifically about one of the dancers, she added, "We're all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance - she's actually an awesome dancer. They're just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they're awesome dancers just on their own. It's not me telling them how to be. It's really funny how serious people take it. And [people are] like, 'You're racist.' And I'm like, 'Really?' We're like a bunch of kids dancing around in, like, bear [suits], we don't do choreography."

Lady GagaLady Gaga has been refused a permit to perform in a giant vending machine.

The "Do What You Want" hitmaker was hoping to entertain fans at the annual South by Southwest festival (SXSW) held in Austin, Texas between March 7 - 16 on the Doritos Stage, which has been designed to look like a huge snack machine, but due to concerns over health and safety she's had to reconsider.

"Our conclusion was based primarily on public safety concerns ... We look at the size and capacity of the location covered by the permit being sought and how it fits with the anticipated attendance, based on event capacity and promotion. At the end of the day, it's a parking lot," said Don Pitts of Austin's Music And Entertainment division.

Gaga - real name Stefani Germanotta - is still set to play at the nine-day festival but has been urged to find a location with "the necessary permanent infrastructure" to support her performance.

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.

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus appeared through a replica of her own mouth to open her Bangerz Tour in Canada last night.

The "We Can't Stop" star entered through an opening in a picture of her face and slid down a huge pink tongue extending to the stage on the opening night of the tour in Vancouver. The controversial singer showed off plenty of sexy dance moves including Twerking - the butt shaking dance she popularized last year - up against a giant blue teddy bear, rubbing her crotch, riding a hot dog and sucking on a foam finger.

The "Party in the USA" hitmaker opened the show in a red studded two-piece, before changing into a leotard printed with marijuana leaves and wearing a golden cannabis leaf around her neck, which she paired with white cowboy boots. She admitted her nerves before the performance, tweeting, "I don't know if it's Valentines Day or #BangerzTour but I'm most definitely having a panic attack."

RihannaRihanna claims she was "effectively bankrupt" in 2009.

The "Only Girl in the World" hitmaker blames her accountants' poor decision making for her fortune dwindling away from $11 million in cash at the beginning of the year to $2 million several months later.

In documents filed in her gross mismanagement case against the accountancy firm, Berdon LLP, Rihanna claims they gave her the go-ahead to buy a house priced between $7 and $7.5 million, which she did - and later sold for a $2 million loss. To further add to her financial woes that year, the singer's expenses "doubled," TMZ reports. In the lawsuit, Rihanna also claimed her 2009 Last Girl on Earth tour was losing money but she was never warned of this by the accountants.

Berdon previously claimed Rihanna's own "financial action or inaction" or those of people working for her caused her to lose money, not their decision-making. They also dismissed the "Diamonds" star's previous objection she paid an "above-average" commission of 22 per cent as something she had signed off on herself.
