Don’t stop bracing yourselves: Madonna’s epic collaborations continue. After joining Macklemore, Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert (plus mass-wedding officiant Queen Latifah) onstage at Sunday’s Grammys, the pop legend, 55, will be performing with fellow provocateur Miley Cyrus for the younger star’s MTV Unplugged special , two sources confirm to Us Weekly . The stripped-down, acoustic concert tapes in L.A. on Tuesday, Jan. 28, and airs on MTV the following evening. ( E! News was first to break the story, noting that Madonna and Cyrus, 21, were rehearsing together on Monday.)
One source close to both divas tells Us that the planned duet came together “last minute” thanks to the efforts of MTV and their respective managers.
No word yet on what the women will sing together, but Madonna and Cyrus’ natural kinship isn’t difficult to figure out: The elder pop queen was pushing the envelope — with brazen, frank depictions of female sexuality and more — in her music, videos, live performances and attention-grabbing interviews before Cyrus was even born.
The 19-year-old pop star, who was busted for DUI while drag racing in Miami last week before heading to Panama for a few days of rest and relaxation, has left the Central American country and is on a plane home to L.A. with manager Scooter Braun , a source confirms to E! News. In addition to the travel news, a source tells us that Bieber isn’t letting all the negative media attention get him down.
“Justin is doing OK right now,” a source tells E! News exclusively.
“He’s with friends and family. That’s what is most important now, being surrounded by family and his closest friends.”
Additionally, another source tells E! that Bieber’s mom Pattie Mallette is coping the best she can given the recent circumstances.
We’re not exactly sure if Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are in contact at the moment, but the duo still seems to be on the same wavelength when it comes to fashion.
On Tuesday, Gomez stepped out in Los Angeles wearing drop-crotch pants, which are not only Bieber’s trouser of choice, they are basically his signature style at this point. The “Come & Get It” singer paired her black slouchy bottoms with matching black booties and a sheer black top.
While her off-again ( maybe on-again ?) beau has been visited by many of his close friends , including Usher and Scooter Braun , in Panama this week, Selena has been keeping busing with her gal-pals in California.
Actress Alyson Hannigan has been named the face of Pandora for Spring 2014. Alyson is known for her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and How I Met Your Mother . The campaign starring Alyson will begin on Mother’s Day.
Alyson said in the announcement, “I’m delighted to partner with a brand that helps women express their creativity and style. A company that offers choice, all price points, and designs that reflect a women’s individuality, is something I am proud to represent.”
Ashley Benson, star of Pretty Little Liars, covers the March 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan . In the interview, Ashley talks about similarities between her and her Pretty Little Liars character Hanna. Ashley also talks about steering clear of drugs and her on-and-off-again boyfriend Ryan Good.
On How She’s Similar to Hanna : “The only way I’m similar to her is that she’s sarcastic and she’s always having fun – that’s me too. Once, I stuck gum on Keegan Allen’s coat collar, so when he leaned back, it got caught in his hair.”
On Avoid Drugs in Hollywood : “There are drugs and alcohol in my family on both sides, so I’ve seen lives ruined, going to jail and all that. Once you start with any drug, it can be an addiction – that’s why I never want to start and am not even tempted, because that chain is relentless. And if it runs in your family, you see how unglamorous it is. I would never want to be out of control with my body.”
On Ryan Good : “Ryan is one of the strongest people I’ve met, so grounded and such a positive influence on people. We took a break because it was so hard. I work 20 hour days, so I’m always gone. So a lot of your relationship is on the phone and iChatting and trying to catch up.”
The issue hits newsstands on February 4th.
Vin Diesel is all about making people happy.
On Tuesday, he did it by posting a Facebook video in which he dances to Katy Perry ’s “Dark Horse” and Beyonce’s“Drunk In Love.”
In the middle of the clip, he stops to thanks fans for their support and chat about the Grammys.
Then he goes back to dancing, and it’s glorious.
Lea Michele has debuted “What Is Love.”
The song follows “Cannonball,” “Battlefield” and “Louder.”
It comes from the “Glee” star’s album Louder .
A photo of Harry Styles ’ naked butt surfaced online on Sunday.
The undated picture — see below — shows the One Direction singer from behind with his pants down as he pees into a bush.
While the origins of the snapshot are unclear, Styles cheekily tweeted on Sunday, “Mix-A-Lot’s in trouble.”
Some took the tweet to be a joking reference to the infamous Sir Mix-A-Lot hit “Baby Got Back,” but the rapper himself added to the confusion a few hours later.
Mix-A-Lot went on to insist that he wasn’t the source of the leak , and even said he doesn’t actually “know” the teen heartthrob, though some reports claim the picture may have been taken at a party at the performer-producer’s home.
If Styles gets to the, um, bottom of the situation, we’ll be sure to update.
Selena Gomez leads Seventeen magazine’s first-ever list of the Most Powerful Girls Under 21.
Calling Gomez “The Mogul,” Seventeen cites the star’s acting and singing careers, along with her major clothing lines, tech start-up investing, social media presence, and activism as a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.
Demi Lovato (“The Cool Chick”) and Miley Cyrus (“The Rebel”) round out the Top 3.
The list was developed from a national survey of teenage girls about “power,” and the issue also features a Power Advisory Board with women from the worlds of entertainment, politics, fashion, business and philanthropy.
Billy Ray Cyrus is offering some advice to Justin Bieber following the teen singer’s DUI arrest in Miami last week.
Miley Cyrus ’ dad told “ Access Hollywood” at the Grammys on Sunday night, “I would just invite him to come down and chill out with me, maybe in Tennessee.”
Billy Ray said he’d tell Bieber, “Let’s go up to the teepee, build a fire, step away and just, you know, maybe take a break for a little bit, just think about what’s important.”
“Get back to life… Build a fire, count the deer and the hawks and relax a little bit,” added the “Achy-Breaky Heart” singer.
Billy Ray went on to share, “He’s got a long life ahead of him and I’d like to see him just kind of maybe, enjoy a little bit of what he’s got and focus back on the music. He’s a great artist.”
