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.

Justin Bieber Declares Retirement Plans Again on Twitter


Pop superstar Justin Bieber gave fans a shock on Christmas Eve by taking to Twitter.com to declare his plans for retirement once again.

The Baby hitmaker first sent fans into a spin last week after telling a Los Angeles DJ he was ready to hang up his microphone for good at the age of 19.

His manager, Scooter Braun, subsequently played down rumours the teen was done with pop, insisting he was simply planning to take some time out in 2014, but Bieber reiterated his intentions to quit the music industry once more on Tuesday, telling his more than 47 million Twitter followers, "My beloved beliebers (fans) I'm officially retiring."

The message caused frenzied fans to take to the Internet to express their heartbreak, but Bieber then appeared to dismiss his own claim with a series of follow-up posts.

He went on to add, "The media talks a lot about me. They make a up a lot of lies and want me to fail but I'm never leaving you, being a belieber (fan) is a lifestyle.

"Be kind loving to each other, forgive each other as god forgave us through Christ Merry Christmas IM (sic) FOREVER."

Bieber's confusing posts appeared online hours before the release of his new concert documentary, Justin Bieber's Believe, hit cinemas in North America, and it seems he hasn't given up singing at all - he shared a number of videos on Instagram.com on Christmas Day featuring snippets of him singing acoustic versions of his tracks U Smile, Confident and Swap It Out.

Pope Calls For Peace, Prayers in Annual Christmas Message


VATICAN CITY, Dec. 25 (UPI)—Pope Francis prayed from a balcony of St. Peter's Basilica before thousands for peace in Syria, Iraq and Africa during his first Christmas message as pope. The annual "Urbi et Orbi" message, "To the city (of Rome) and to the world," pointed out peace is not merely a balance of opposing forces, but "calls for daily commitment... wars shatter and hurt so many lives." The message, delivered before an audience estimated by Vatican TV of 150,000, concentrated on prayer for innocents caught in political conflict. 

The Pope, 77, called for prayer to "ask the Lord to spare the beloved Syrian people further suffering and to enable the parties in conflict to put an end to all violence, and guarantee access to humanitarian aid." The message also made reference to violence in Iraq, South Sudan, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Horn of Africa. He ended saying: "God is peace. Let us ask him to help us to be peacemakers each day, in our life, in our families, in our cities and nations. Let us allow ourselves to me moved by God's goodness." The large turnout reflected the popularity Pope Francis has enjoyed since becoming head of the Catholic Church, CNN said, noting his down-to-earth manner has touched a chord with millions. There were a record number of requests to attend his Christmas Eve Mass at St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican said.

Four Generations at Royal Church Service


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked relaxed as they walked St Mary Magdalene Church, holding hands as temperatures stayed just above freezing.

One member of the crowd shouted: "Where's the baby?"

Wearing a tartan Alexander McQueen coat and hat by Gina Foster, Kate smiled and waved to the crowds.

She was seen curtseying to the Queen, who was wearing an orange coat, as the family attended a private service earlier in the morning.

Prince Harry, still sporting a beard from his exertions in the Arctic with the charity Walking With the Wounded, attended alone despite rumours that girlfriend Cressida Bonas might join him.

About 3000 well-wishers gathered outside the church to watch them arrive.

Before the service a pilot entertained them by drawing a smiley face, heart and kiss in vapour trails in the sky.

The service opened with a rendition of Christians, Awake followed by Once In Royal David's City.

Last year the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge missed the service, choosing to spend Christmas Day with Kate's family in Berkshire, while Prince Harry was on tour in Afghanistan.

There had been unconfirmed reports that George's grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton would attend this year. There was no sign of them but it is thought they may arrive at the estate on Boxing Day.

The royal habit of spending Christmas at Sandringham is believed to date to Queen Victoria's reign.

The family traditionally open their presents on Christmas Eve and will enjoy a Norfolk turkey with all the trimmings after the service.
