What, you didn’t know that Miley Cyrus’ (aka Hannah Montana) real name was Destiny Hope Cyrus? Yeah, we didn’t either, but it’s definitely the greatest name we’ve heard this side of Scores. It’s one thing to change your name to a sexy monniker later in life, but to be born with such a trashy name is a true gift. We’re sad to see Miley let Destiny go, especially with all those bikini pics that have leaked on to the internet in recent weeks. She is now legally Miley Ray Cyrus – Miley stems from her childhood nickname of Smiley, and she added the Ray as a tribute to her mullet-loving dad.
Seeing as Destiny Hope Cyrus is now dead (er, as a name), we invite you to discover your own awesome stripper name. Here’s a handy name generator to use at your leisure. Give it your best shot and let us know what you come up with!
An oddly blonde Jack Black informed VH1 News that the celebrity swag at Sundance wasn’t exactly free — it comes at a price. The price? Taking a picture with the stuff, which means being prepped to be the next face of a random cosmetics brand in their Asian marketing campaign. (Just kidding. Sort of.) We caught all of the action at Sundance, the annual Park City, Utah, meet-and-greet, where celebrities came to check out new films, promote their own, and, in general, raise the level of conversation. Whether or not that actually worked in practice is something else entirely. When asked, for instance, about his horrendous new glasses, Bono claimed that they’re 3-D. That goes along with U2‘s new film, U2 3D, but it doesn’t change the fact that the world’s most socially conscious star of the stage needs a new stylist. For more on the festival, click here.
The Queen of the Night had another meltdown outside her house yesterday that began in the early evening and lasted until one or two in the morning. Apparently Brit got in a big fight with her master/enabler Sam Lutfi, so she hopped out of his car with her bag and dog and tried to run away (you’re not in Kansas anymore, Brit!). Where she was headed we’re not sure, and neither was she, as she eventually plopped down on the curb to cry. Then Adnan Ghalib, photog boyfriend extraordinaire, tried to come to her rescue, but he was banned (by Sam) from entering her gated community. Eventually both her parents showed up around 9PM, but then Brit bolted to drive around with city with Adnan till 11PM. Eventually she headed back home, only to hit up a drugstore at 1:2o AM with her Mom and Sam in tow.
TMZ is claiming that the gang is in the process of attempting an intervention on the pop queen to try to get her to deal with her mental health issues. What we want to know is, who is thinking about Britney’s poor, suffering millionaire neighbors!? They’ve paid big bucks for their McMansions, only to live in the middle of a freak-show. Check out some video of the scene at her house and you’ll be offering to go evacuate people tomorrow. Seriously, the girl needs her own country to contain all the insanity she attracts.
New Kids on the Block: Plotting Comeback?
One of the Kids posted confusing Myspace messages about a possible NKOTB reunion, proving that they care as little as we do about seeing Hangin’ Tough live again. [Us]
Pete Doherty Addicted to Animals
The cracked out Brit has taken to rescuing critters, like a one-legged hedge hog which he now keeps in his garden. This isn’t what we had in mind for “rehab,” but okay. [Daily Star]
More Miley Bikinis Pics Hit Web
Someone’s trying to sabotage the star with sexy pics posted on the internet. Being sixteen sucks no matter how much fame you got going on. [NYDN]
Scam Artist Poses as Heath’s Pop
Because pretending to be a 9-11 victim’s family member is so 2002. Classy! [NY Post]
Britney Allowed to Call Kids
That conversation probably makes a ton of sense: “Hi Sean Preston, it’s mama! Googa goo goo ga!” [People]
Lost returns this Thursday night after a torturous nine-month hiatus. I don’t know about you, but I’m twitching with anticipation – this show has proven to be full of classic cliffhangers. We’re recapping this season’s episodes each Friday morning, but let’s take one last look at season three. Here’sa countdown of the top moments that made us gasp, fall off our seats, or just yell WTF? at the screen! Are these the moments that rocked you, too? Tell us in “Comments.” See you Friday.
12. ‘Guyliner’ Keeps You Young. In a flashback to his youth on the island, little Ben is walking through the jungle and meets Richard Alpert – a man who appears to wear eyeliner and not to have aged in about 30 years. (Nerd note: Alpert’s also the Mittelos Bioscience guy Juliette interviewed with for the job that got her to the island.) He tells Ben he’s not ready yet to join them. Given the pirate duds Alpert has on, he may be part of the Black Rock slave ship that arrived on the island more than a century ago. Who is this dude, how old is he, and does Dharma stock the island with men’s cosmetics? Given that the actor who plays him, Nestor Carbonell, is now on CBS’ Cane, we may never know…
After getting shut out of their beloved Golden Globes, the stars were finally able to come out and shine in all their fashionable glory at last night’s SAG Awards. But sadly, some celebs looked more freakish than fabulous. Below are five of our favorites from the night, as well as our picks for fashion flops.
The Best: America Ferrera reps old school glamor; Marion Cotillard is so French and so fine; Michelle Pfeiffer ‘s best in brown; Ryan Gosling remembers Heath while looking classy and Vanessa Williams shines bright and beautiful.
The Worst: Eva Longoria‘s scary hair do and scarier face; Jay Manuel‘s eyes smile as his outfit frowns; Sandra Oh no she didn’t wear a giant bow-dress; Jane “My Dress is Edible” Krakowski and artist Julian Schnabel, who wore pajamas, natch.
In this episode, Scott Baio travels back to Brooklyn to find out what kind of kid he was, so that he can figure out what kind of parent he’ll be. And just what kind of kid was he, you ask?
An animated one. Duh.
So what if Britney’s not actually performing at the Super Bowl next weekend? She still made sure she gave us a show that topped Janet Jackson’s whole wardrobe malfunction debacle when she flashed her boob to the paparazzi during a dance rehearsal this weekend. Check out the video above for a couple choreography moves, one of the twins, and a whole lot of crazy (skip to the 3:20 mark to get right to the goods).
But just because Brit was busy letting it all hang out doesn’t mean she’s out of control. It was probably just part of her new “treatment for mental issues!” Yes, Brit’s BEF (Best Enabler Forever) Sam Lutfi called Babs over at The View today (er, why?) and told her that the singer is seeing a psychiatrist and is seeking help for “mental issues,” including mood swings and sleeping problems. More good news: Brit’s in touch with her mother! Now if only someone would step in and help with her unfortunate lipstick choices, she’d be well on her way to almost normal. [Us]
The Pepsi Smash show is a mere four days away, and Maroon 5 are pretty psyched to play it. With a line-up that includes Mary J. Blige and Ne-Yo, Adam Levine and James Valentine stopped by our Top 20 studios to chat about what they’re looking forward to. After some joking about their Grammy nominations (apparently the boys are nominated for Best Band Ever in the Entire Universe category — new this year) the Maroon Men gushed about Mary. Find out what they had to say.

First, we’d like to thank whichever Scientology traitor is releasing all the wonderful Tom Cruise videos, as well as this email, allegedly from King of Queens actress Leah Remini. Yes, the rambling, confusing email could simply be a hoax. But what’s fun about approaching this crap with reason?
Below are a couple of excerpts from the supposed email, in which Remini (allegedly) guilt-trips lazy Scientologists into getting back involved with the church, beginning with some brunch she’s holding. The rest is the usual Scientology lingo you’ve come to know and love: SPs, OTs, ORGs, CS, LRH, FARTS, etc etc. It should only take you a few days to figure out what it all means!
Hi! This is Leah Remini Writing you again. Some of you may know me from
the TV show “King of Queens”, but what is more important is that I am now OT V and at one point I was a very stalled Clear. A lot of people helped me to get OT, and I decided I was going to turn around and help every Clear make it to OT.
