    Gather round the stage, boys and girls — school is in session with Ms. Cyrus!
    In an interview released Friday, Miley said she will teach children about all sorts of things on her upcoming concert tour. "Even though parents probably won't think this, I think my show is educational for kids," Miley said. "They're going to be exposed to art most people don't know about. People are taught to look at things so black-and-white, especially in small towns. I'm excited to take this tour to places where [art] like this wouldn't be accepted, where kids wouldn't learn about this different kind of art."

    Miley gave the interview to her older sister, Brandi, a correspondent for Fuse News. One week after her "pretty f*cking cool" performance with Madonna, the singer said her visual and musical spectacle will be inspired by the Material Girl herself. "I want to make things look high end, like something you would see on Madonna's tour, but make it feel a lot more young," Miley said. As she prepares to enlighten the nation's youth while singing "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball," the former child star is also showing more skin. Miley posed naked on the cover of W magazine's March issue.

    Miranda Kerr's relatives in Australia have issued a public plea for the supermodel to come home amid claims they have not seen her in "over a year".

    The brunette beauty, who grew up in the small NSW town of Gunnedah, left her native country and moved to New York five years ago, marrying and later splitting from British actor Orlando Bloom, the father of her young son Flynn.

    Kerr's parents have now filmed an emotional segment for an Australian TV show in which they claim to have lost contact with the 30-year-old.

    In the episode of Family Confidential, aired on ABC1, the clan claims they have not seen Kerr in "over a year" and her mother, Therese, suggests her efforts to contact her daughter are rarely reciprocated.

    "Miranda's life is so different now (and) she's surrounded by yes people all the time. It's so important for me to be real, to be true, to be who she needs me to be... We have been best friends for most of our life. We used to talk just about every day. I send her messages, just little texts to say 'I love you honey, let your little light shine...'"

    Kerr's father John reveals he didn't hear from his daughter after she split from her husband in 2013, and was instead told the news in a phone call from Bloom.

    "I remember him saying 'We're always going to be family' and that's how we'll treat Orlando, Miranda and Flynn. We're all family," he said.
    Kerr's grandmother Ann said: "I miss the baby and I think he's missing out on family, that closeness that we have always had," and the catwalk star's brother Matthew added: "I'd like to spend more one-on-one time instead of with an entourage of people who we don't really know. I love her to death, I just want to see her more."

    A spokeswoman for Kerr told the Herald Sun: "(She) wasn't able to be back in Australia... due to her busy international work schedule but is grateful to her parents, brother and extended family in Australia for their ongoing support and love."

  • ‘Appalling’: Designers promote what stars wore to Hoffman services

    Top designers are pouncing on the celebrity bonanza surrounding Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death by sending out photos of stars wearing their brands while paying their respects to the legendary actor.

    Valentino emailed fashion bloggers and journalists on Friday morning photos of Hoffman’s “The Master” co-star Amy Adams wearing their Garavani Rockstud Duble bag on her way to the memorial service.

    “We are pleased to announce Amy Adams carrying the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Duble bag from the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on February 6th in New York,” the release stated. It included street shots of the actress sporting their bag.

    “Just got a press release naming the handbag Amy Adams was carrying while in NYC for PSH’s funeral. #tasteless #ew,” USA today writer Donna Freydkin tweeted.

    Amy Adams’ rep called it “truly appalling.”

    “Amy Adams is not a paid spokesperson for Valentino and the suggestion she would use this moment to participate in a promotion is truly appalling.”

    Other designers sent swag to celebrities in the hopes that they’ll wear their products at the funeral or memorial service.

    Ugg Australia gifted friends of Hoffman who they assumed would visit New York City for the funeral. They included a message encouraging them to wear their winter boots in the cold city weather, according to Ugg Australia associates.

    “They did gifting in the hopes that that would happen,” an Ugg associate told The Post.

    “Since they knew a ton of celebs were in New York City and the weather sucks.”

    “UGG Australia has received a number of requests this week. This happens every year during both New York Fashion Week and winter storms–both of which occurred this week–and we did our best to accommodate as we were able,” Ugg spokesperson Kristen Scaravaglione told The Post.

    “UGG does not know nor would we presume to ask what our consumers or fans are doing in New York, or for what event or purpose they need the product. That is none of our business. UGG does not request photo opps from those to whom we gift product.”

    Valentino rep Mona Swanson told The Post in a statement, “We were not aware the photograph was taken while she was attending the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was an innocent mistake and we apologize to Ms. Adams who was not aware, or a part of, our PR efforts.”

  • 02/07/14--18:45: Woody Allen Speaks Out

  • Last Sunday, Nicholas Kristof wrote a column about Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. Mr. Allen has written the following response to the column and Dylan’s account.

    TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer.

    I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan and any rational person would see the ploy for what it was. Common sense would prevail. After all, I was a 56-year-old man who had never before (or after) been accused of child molestation. I had been going out with Mia for 12 years and never in that time did she ever suggest to me anything resembling misconduct. Now, suddenly, when I had driven up to her house in Connecticut one afternoon to visit the kids for a few hours, when I would be on my raging adversary’s home turf, with half a dozen people present, when I was in the blissful early stages of a happy new relationship with the woman I’d go on to marry — that I would pick this moment in time to embark on a career as a child molester should seem to the most skeptical mind highly unlikely. The sheer illogic of such a crazy scenario seemed to me dispositive.

    Notwithstanding, Mia insisted that I had abused Dylan and took her immediately to a doctor to be examined. Dylan told the doctor she had not been molested. Mia then took Dylan out for ice cream, and when she came back with her the child had changed her story. The police began their investigation; a possible indictment hung in the balance. I very willingly took a lie-detector test and of course passed because I had nothing to hide. I asked Mia to take one and she wouldn’t. Last week a woman named Stacey Nelkin, whom I had dated many years ago, came forward to the press to tell them that when Mia and I first had our custody battle 21 years ago, Mia had wanted her to testify that she had been underage when I was dating her, despite the fact this was untrue. Stacey refused. I include this anecdote so we all know what kind of character we are dealing with here. One can imagine in learning this why she wouldn’t take a lie-detector test.

    Meanwhile the Connecticut police turned for help to a special investigative unit they relied on in such cases, the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital. This group of impartial, experienced men and women whom the district attorney looked to for guidance as to whether to prosecute, spent months doing a meticulous investigation, interviewing everyone concerned, and checking every piece of evidence. Finally they wrote their conclusion which I quote here: “It is our expert opinion that Dylan was not sexually abused by Mr. Allen. Further, we believe that Dylan’s statements on videotape and her statements to us during our evaluation do not refer to actual events that occurred to her on August 4th, 1992... In developing our opinion we considered three hypotheses to explain Dylan’s statements. First, that Dylan’s statements were true and that Mr. Allen had sexually abused her; second, that Dylan’s statements were not true but were made up by an emotionally vulnerable child who was caught up in a disturbed family and who was responding to the stresses in the family; and third, that Dylan was coached or influenced by her mother, Ms. Farrow. While we can conclude that Dylan was not sexually abused, we can not be definite about whether the second formulation by itself or the third formulation by itself is true. We believe that it is more likely that a combination of these two formulations best explains Dylan’s allegations of sexual abuse.”

    Could it be any clearer? Mr. Allen did not abuse Dylan; most likely a vulnerable, stressed-out 7-year-old was coached by Mia Farrow. This conclusion disappointed a number of people. The district attorney was champing at the bit to prosecute a celebrity case, and Justice Elliott Wilk, the custody judge, wrote a very irresponsible opinion saying when it came to the molestation, “we will probably never know what occurred.”

    But we did know because it had been determined and there was no equivocation about the fact that no abuse had taken place. Justice Wilk was quite rough on me and never approved of my relationship with Soon-Yi, Mia’s adopted daughter, who was then in her early 20s. He thought of me as an older man exploiting a much younger woman, which outraged Mia as improper despite the fact she had dated a much older Frank Sinatra when she was 19. In fairness to Justice Wilk, the public felt the same dismay over Soon-Yi and myself, but despite what it looked like our feelings were authentic and we’ve been happily married for 16 years with two great kids, both adopted. (Incidentally, coming on the heels of the media circus and false accusations, Soon-Yi and I were extra carefully scrutinized by both the adoption agency and adoption courts, and everyone blessed our adoptions.)

    Mia took custody of the children and we went our separate ways.

    I was heartbroken. Moses was angry with me. Ronan I didn’t know well because Mia would never let me get close to him from the moment he was born and Dylan, whom I adored and was very close to and about whom Mia called my sister in a rage and said, “He took my daughter, now I’ll take his.” I never saw her again nor was I able to speak with her no matter how hard I tried. I still loved her deeply, and felt guilty that by falling in love with Soon-Yi I had put her in the position of being used as a pawn for revenge. Soon-Yi and I made countless attempts to see Dylan but Mia blocked them all, spitefully knowing how much we both loved her but totally indifferent to the pain and damage she was causing the little girl merely to appease her own vindictiveness.

    Here I quote Moses Farrow, 14 at the time: “My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister.” Moses is now 36 years old and a family therapist by profession. “Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” he said. “She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him.” Dylan was 7, Ronan 4, and this was, according to Moses, the steady narrative year after year.

    I pause here for a quick word on the Ronan situation. Is he my son or, as Mia suggests, Frank Sinatra’s? Granted, he looks a lot like Frank with the blue eyes and facial features, but if so what does this say? That all during the custody hearing Mia lied under oath and falsely represented Ronan as our son? Even if he is not Frank’s, the possibility she raises that he could be, indicates she was secretly intimate with him during our years. Not to mention all the money I paid for child support. Was I supporting Frank’s son? Again, I want to call attention to the integrity and honesty of a person who conducts her life like that.

    NOW it’s 21 years later and Dylan has come forward with the accusations that the Yale experts investigated and found false. Plus a few little added creative flourishes that seem to have magically appeared during our 21-year estrangement.

    Not that I doubt Dylan hasn’t come to believe she’s been molested, but if from the age of 7 a vulnerable child is taught by a strong mother to hate her father because he is a monster who abused her, is it so inconceivable that after many years of this indoctrination the image of me Mia wanted to establish had taken root? Is it any wonder the experts at Yale had picked up the maternal coaching aspect 21 years ago? Even the venue where the fabricated molestation was supposed to have taken place was poorly chosen but interesting. Mia chose the attic of her country house, a place she should have realized I’d never go to because it is a tiny, cramped, enclosed spot where one can hardly stand up and I’m a major claustrophobe. The one or two times she asked me to come in there to look at something, I did, but quickly had to run out. Undoubtedly the attic idea came to her from the Dory Previn song, “With My Daddy in the Attic.” It was on the same record as the song Dory Previn had written about Mia’s betraying their friendship by insidiously stealing her husband, André, “Beware of Young Girls.” One must ask, did Dylan even write the letter or was it at least guided by her mother? Does the letter really benefit Dylan or does it simply advance her mother’s shabby agenda? That is to hurt me with a smear. There is even a lame attempt to do professional damage by trying to involve movie stars, which smells a lot more like Mia than Dylan.

    After all, if speaking out was really a necessity for Dylan, she had already spoken out months earlier in Vanity Fair. Here I quote Moses Farrow again: “Knowing that my mother often used us as pawns, I cannot trust anything that is said or written from anyone in the family.” Finally, does Mia herself really even believe I molested her daughter? Common sense must ask: Would a mother who thought her 7-year-old daughter was sexually abused by a molester (a pretty horrific crime), give consent for a film clip of her to be used to honor the molester at the Golden Globes?
    Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being. Being taught to hate your father and made to believe he molested you has already taken a psychological toll on this lovely young woman, and Soon-Yi and I are both hoping that one day she will understand who has really made her a victim and reconnect with us, as Moses has, in a loving, productive way. No one wants to discourage abuse victims from speaking out, but one must bear in mind that sometimes there are people who are falsely accused and that is also a terribly destructive thing. (This piece will be my final word on this entire matter and no one will be responding on my behalf to any further comments on it by any party. Enough people have been hurt.)


    SMH. This asshole is doing the most in this op-ed. Read the whole thing but prepare to feel gross.

    She's in love and isn't afraid to show it. Supermodel Tyra Banks engaged in some very public displays of affection with her new beau Erik Asla. The loving couple shared a romantic kiss while having lunch at Pearl's Liquor Bar in West Hollywood on Friday.

    The 40-year-old beauty cuddled up next to her striking lover in the restaurant's balcony when they both leaned in for a passionate lip lock. The couple canoodled in a corner as Erik listened tentatively while his gorgeous girlfriend whispered into his ear. After their intimate meal, the dynamic duo were spotted in great spirits as they walked around Los Angeles together. While they were first spotted together last summer, Tyra only recently confirmed her romance with her blonde main man. But the TV host and her fashion and fine art photographer beau looked quite smitten with each other, as they headed out for a stroll after their meal. The doting duo could hardly stop smiling as they strutted down Sunset Boulevard, following their PDA-packed afternoon.

    The two-time Sports Illustrated cover model appeared casual yet chic in a cropped black puffy jacket, printed white T-shirt, and skinny, leather and suede ankle-length trousers. Putting comfort first, she teamed the pieces with a pair of hip black kicks and opted to carry a small Louis Vuitton bag instead of a massive purse. Meanwhile, Tyra let her long brunette locks flow in loose curls, covering them up with a taupe beanie hat. And as a natural beauty, the America's Next Top Model judge appeared to be wearing minimal make-up but made sure or brighten up her complexion with some blush.

    Last month, Tyra confirmed that a sequel to Disney's television movie Life-Size is currently in development. But the star kept mum on whether co-star Lindsay Lohan will reprise her role in the updated version of the 2000 cult hit. Despite the confirmation of the film, Tyra didn't go into specifics. 'I can't [tell you anything] unfortunately,' she said. 'I'm under contract with Disney and I can't talk about it at all, except that it's coming. But it will be very different, very different. Very modern - a modern take.' The television personality said the film would likely be released next year. 'I don't think it'll be out until probably 2015, but I'm guessing - it could be late 2014 or 2015. But it will be back - Life-Size will be back, better than ever.'

    The U.S. government will recognize same-sex marriages as equal to traditional marriages in all federal matters, including in U.S. courts, bankruptcies, prison visits and survivor benefits, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Saturday.

    The expansion of such federal recognition will include 34 states where same-sex marriage isn't legal, but the new federal benefits being extended to those states will apply only where the U.S. government has jurisdiction, Holder said.

    For example, a same-sex couple legally married in Massachusetts can now have their federal bankruptcy proceeding recognized in Alabama, even though it doesn't allow same-sex marriages. In the past, the U.S. government could challenge the couple's joint bankruptcy because Alabama doesn't recognize same-sex marriage.

    Holder's announcement was revealed in an advance copy of a speech he will deliver at the Human Rights Campaign's New York City gala Saturday night.

    Holder plans to announce that the Justice Department will issue a memo Monday that recognizes same-sex marriages "to the greatest extent possible under the law."

    The move affects how millions of Americans interact with their federal government, including bankruptcy cases, prison visitation rights, survivor benefits for police officers and firefighters killed on the job, and the legal right to refuse to testify to incriminate a spouse.

    The Human Rights Campaign, an advocate of gay rights, lauded Holder for his support of same sex marriage in a recent speech to the Swedish parliament.

    In an excerpt of his speech provided in advance, Holder compared his work for the gay rights cause to the 1960s civil rights struggle and then- Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy's support for equality.

    "This means that, in every courthouse, in every proceeding, and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States -- they will strive to ensure that same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law," Holder said of his initiative.

    Under the new policy, the Justice Department will recognize that same-sex spouses of individuals involved in civil and criminal cases should have the same legal rights as all other married couples -- including the right to decline to give testimony that might incriminate their spouses.

    Also, the government won't contest same-sex married couples their rights in states where previously prosecutors could argue that the marriage is not recognized in the state where the couple lives, Holder said.

    Couples in same-sex marriages will be allowed to file for bankruptcy as a couple. This ensures alimony and domestic support debts aren't discharged in bankruptcy cases. Federal inmates with same-sex spouses will now have full visitation, compassionate release and other benefits.

    The Justice Department's policy change will extend benefits to same-sex couples who benefit from federal programs such as the Sept. 11 Victim Compensation Fund, Radiation Exposure Compensation program and to the families of police officers and firefighters who receive benefits from the Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program.

    "Just like during the civil rights movement of the 1960s, the stakes involved in this generation's struggle for LGBT equality could not be higher," Holder said. "As attorney general, I will not let this Department be simply a bystander during this important moment in history."

    In a statement, Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin said that "this landmark announcement will change the lives of countless committed gay and lesbian couples for the better.

    "While the immediate effect of these policy decisions is that all married gay couples will be treated equally under the law, the long-term effects are more profound. Today, our nation moves closer toward its ideals of equality and fairness for all," Griffin said.

    By now, you've likely heard the rumors: Bruce Jenner is in the process of getting a sex change. Though that claim has been denied by pretty much every party involved, that didn't stop Jimmy Kimmel from poking fun at it on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

    Using the new Facebook look back video feature introduced to honor the social networking site's 10th anniversary, Kimmel "made" one for Jenner that starts back in 2004 "when you were a man." Fast forward to 2014: Apparently Jenner's "Yeah, I'm rockin' a bob, so what?""status" got 68 likes. As for "And yes, I'm a full A cup now #blessed," only 35 likes. Sorry Jenner.

    The funny video ends with a surprise flash forward in time that won't be spoiled here, but needless to say the Kardashian family likely won't be laughing too hard over this one.

    “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas have credited Britney Spears with helping to save their show from cancelation.

    Spears made a guest appearance as a vengeful receptionist for two episodes on the popular U.S. sitcom in 2008, and according to Bays, her cameo couldn’t have come at a better time.

    He reveals Spears boosted ratings in the midst of a crucial time when network bosses were deciding whether or not to pick up the show for a fourth season.

    In a question and answer session on website Reddit.com on Monday, Bays reveals that Spears contacted them about appearing in a critical episode which introduced Stella, an integral love interest for the main character Ted.

    Bays wrote, “We got a call … saying that Britney Spears wanted to be on our show. And she specifically wanted to be in the episode Ten Sessions, which sent a chill down our spines, because that’s the one where we meet Stella.

    “I immediately imagined Britney playing Stella and had a minor panic attack, because it’s such a big role and needed an (sic) proven, experienced actress like (Scrubs actress) Sarah Chalke. But to her credit, Britney liked the character of Abby, and wanted to play that part. So we said sure!

    “And by golly she put our show on the map. It can’t be overstated. Britney Spears rescued us from ever being on the bubble again. Thanks Britney!”

    The ninth and final season of “How I Met Your Mother” wraps in March.

    Actress-turned-rocker TAYLOR MOMSEN and her bandmates were thrilled to discover the bathroom of their hotel suite during a recent stay in Milwaukee, Wisconsin was haunted.

    The Pretty Reckless star admits she bribed the manager to let the group stay in the room where serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer murdered his last victim - and they were impressed when the suite turned out to be just as spooky as they'd hoped it would be.

    Momsen tells Revolver magazine, "As I was showering, some weird s**t happened. The shower shut off and the bathtub started to fill up with water, then the shower went back on... It was a little creepy.

    "When I opened the curtain, it had gotten all steamy. I looked up and I saw a giant handprint high up on the wall. Someone would have had to stand on the toilet to reach up that high.

    "That room was the shower room for the day, and it happened to everybody in the band. They all saw the same handprint, but, like, in different places. It was really weird."

    Michael Winterbottom's film stars Daniel Brühl and Cara Delevingne.

    Daniel Brühl and Cara Delevingne (pictured) star alongside Kate Beckinsale in Michael Winterbottom’s The Face of an Angel, a fictionalized adaptation of the best-selling book Angel Face by Barbie Latza Nadeau about the first Amanda Knox trial.

    The U.K.’s Westend Films is handling worldwide sales for the project, which is currently in pre-production. The film was shot last year in Italy and is front and center in water-cooler conversations after an Italian appeals court ruled to reinstate Knox’s conviction for the 2007 murder of her British roommate.

    BBC Films, Multitrade and Ypsilon Films produce alongside Revolution Films.
