Viva la diva


Three decades and a whole world of sex separate them. But when it comes to promoting a record, they both know the name of the game -- get on the road and shake that money maker.

This weekend, the princess of cross-over bubble gummy pop and the grand dame of dance- and radio-ready music took to two very different stages, Miley Cyrus at the tween-friendly shriek-heavy KIIS-FM-backed Wango Tango and Madonna at the U.K.'s Radio 1 Big Weekend.

Each showed off her respective assets, but if it hadn't been for a feat of wardrobe engineering, multiple Grammy-winning ripped superstar Madonna's could've come popping right out of her bustier. Hey, are those new?


Aside from the wild bed head and rocker stance, Miley continued to try to buff her wholesome girl-next-door image and regain the trust of suspicious soccer moms everywhere by covering up (no cleavage here!). There was nary a satin bed sheet to be found anywhere at the Irvine stadium.

Check here for more on the U.K. festival, billed as "Europe's biggest free ticketed event," and here for Jonas Brothers-fueled Wango Tango madness.

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

Picture this

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
