Miranda Kerr keeps it short and sweet as she shows off her endless legs in high-waisted hot pants


The long and short of it! Supermodel Miranda Kerr flaunted her endless legs in summery shorts while out in New York City on Monday

She is one of the highest paid models in the world.
And even on Miranda Kerr's day off, one can see why.
The 30-year-old took to the New York City sidewalk on Monday in a summer-perfect ensemble.

Balancing act: Although the 30-year-old showed lots of legs, she toned down the outfit's revealing nature with a billowing blouse

The 5ft9 beauty strutted one long leg in front of the other in a pair of very short shorts.
Their high waist flattered the former Victoria's Secret Angel's slight frame and allowed her pins to soak in some sun.
Complementing the white and denim tie-dye hot pants was a loose chambray button-down.
The mother of one tucked her blouse into her revealing bottoms, which let the oversized shirt billow at the waist and balance out the revealing nature of her shorts.

Leggy lady! The former Victoria's Secret Angel donned her very slender legs in denim tie-dye shorts

Keeping the remainder of her look low-key, the wife of Orlando Bloom paired the ensemble with silver ballet flats and a grey suede handbag.
Miranda covered up her eyes with a pair of large cat-eye sunglasses, but her smile reveled a pink lip gloss.
The Australian stunner credits her glow and slender figure to regular yoga practise and eating a balanced diet.
In an interview with Vogue UK she said: 'I practise yoga daily; I do half an hour in the morning plus half an hour of meditation.'
She continued: 'I love food and enjoy eating fresh organic produce. I drink warm water and lemon every morning and I also drink lots of good quality purified and preferably alkaline water throughout the day.'

Easy does it: Miranda kept her make-up to a minimum and swept her brown locks into a high bun

Woah momma! A ripped Cristiano Ronaldo is the real life Johnny Bravo in tiny shorts and aviators


Aviators, check. Blonde hair, check. Muscly physique, check.
Forget being a world class Real Madrid footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo turned himself into Johnny Bravo for his holiday in Miami.
Scoping out the beach from aboard a luxury yacht, Cristiano, 28, in his tiny, canary yellow shorts, smirked the self-assured grin of the classic Cartoon Network character.

Spot the difference: Cristiano Ronaldo is the real life version of Johnny Bravo on his Miami break

Displaying his ridiculously toned stomach, abs, and pretty much every muscle of his body, it was no wonder the 28-year old's mates looked reluctant to stand so close to him.
And while they may not have matched the Portuguese football star's physical stature, they certainly shared his love for bright patterns and colours with one gent wearing pink shorts and the other in a checked pair.
Their tans certainly matched, and the three spent some time sunning themselves on the bow of the ship, enjoying a nap in the Floridian heat.

New 'do: Ronaldo's blonde highlights looked as bright as the colour of his shorts

Showing off his buff body as he soaked up the Florida sun, the football superstar made sure he stood out from the crowd in a pair of bright yellow shorts.
Already sporting an impressive tan, Ronaldo looked every inch the dapper dude with his hair slicked up and dark shades sheltering his eyes from the rays.
But one pair of bright shorts didn't seem to be enough, with the striker switching into a hot pink pair and a pristine white vest as the group went for a wander later in the day.

Awkward: His friends didn't look to comfortable standing next to the chiseled footballer

Finishing off his holiday look with a navy blue trilby, the Portuguese hunk seemed to be in his absolute element as he strutted his stuff around Miami with his group of friends.
Ronaldo has made the most of a break from the beautiful game, and appears to have been enjoying hitting the town for numerous nights out.
Posting a snap on his Instagram page of him and two friends heading out for the evening, he wrote: 'On vacations.'

Don't sleep for too long: The heat seems to have made the boys drowsy as they take a nap under the Floridian sun

Too far you have taken this dog grooming: Hysterical pictures as owners dress their pets as film and TV characters

Dogs dressed as characters from Star Wars, Disney and Sesame Street feature in 'extreme dog grooming' contests
Winners of the competitions can scoop more than $30,000 in prize money for single event
Animal photographer Ren Netherland travels thousands of miles every year to capture the images


May the paws be with you: The Star Wars character Yoda is the inspiration for this dog at a creative grooming competition in Hershey, Pennsylvania

A lot of people will have dressed up as a character from a Disney or Star Wars film at some point in their lives but not many will have dressed their dog as one.
These astonishing pets were all contestants at different 'creative dog grooming' contests across America, where winners can scoop over $30,000 in prize money for a single event.
The images were taken by animal photographer Ren Netherland, from Florida, who travels thousands of miles every year to the country's most extreme grooming competitions.

All of the dogs have been sheared and coloured to achieve the final look. Contestants at the grooming competitions visited by Mr Netherland included a dog dressed as the characters of Sesame Street, one dressed as Yoda from Star Wars and another dressed as different Disney characters.
Other dogs were dressed as tigers, elephants, robots, lions, dragons, and exotic birds. It takes two intense hours for the groomers to produce their masterpieces before facing judges.

Mr Netherland said: 'The owners have to grow out their dog's hair in preparation for the show - so that it's long enough for them to make something. 'They train and rehearse throughout the year in preparation for the competition, whittling their creation down to a fine art.
'The best thing for spectators is that when the poodles fist come onto the stage, they just look like normal poodles. Suddenly they are transformed before your eyes into something colourful and completely different. The dogs seem to enjoy the pampering and all the attention.'

How I Learned to Love Mac Miller

By mtvhive.com

Photo courtesy of Mac Miller/Facebook

I was wrong about Mac Miller. Really wrong. Back in 2011, I was one of many music critics who slated the Pittsburgh-raised rapper’s Blue Slide Park debut with an enthusiastic abandon and lots of cheap puns about the tyke-like Miller. It was like slaughtering a shih-tzu; a particularly twee and yappy shitzu who becomes so annoying that you don’t feel bad about digging in to it. I even suggested it was akin to the insufferable cast of Glee making a rap album. It also saw Mac rhyme “coffee shop” with “holocaust,” which still endures as a high-point of torrid rhyming couplets.

Despite the critical lashings Blue Slide Park received, Mac Miller quickly went on to become a real-deal superstar. Today, his social media game dominates the outlets who took umbrage at his music. But despite his success, Blue Slide Park cast Mac Miller as a rapper I stopped having any interest in. He existed outside my sphere of interest. That is until earlier this year when he popped up on “21& Over,” a song with boom-bap revivalist Statik Selektah and rugged punchline king Sean Price.

I retweeted a link to the track, which somehow lead to Arthur Pitt, the vice-president of the Rostrum Records label Miller is signed to, asking myself and another blogger, “I just want to know who pays you boys for the years of slander thrown our way?” Banter ensued, which lead to an early listen to Miller’s follow up album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off. And it’s good. Really good. It sounds like the work of an entirely different rapper. It’s as if we’re finally getting to hear the real Mac Miller.

Whereas Blue Slide Park was embossed with a poppy and playful sheen, Watching Movies is strewn with static and distortion. It opens with a wave of slow-building scuzzy atmospheric effects which morph into the song “The Star Room.” Mac talks about living inside his head, dwelling in purgatory, and dealing with demons. This endearingly eerie vibe continues through the excellently-sequenced first run of songs: “Avian” is hooked around a stripped-down piano motif and has Mac urging kids to embrace the world outside of their computer screens; “I’m Not Real” has him out-rhyming the lauded Earl Sweatshirt over an off-kilter beat.

Then comes the Flying Lotus-produced “S.D.S.” which offers up another woozy, static-sodden backdrop and Mac coining the bumptious brag, “I’m dope and I know/ My voice sound like it was a sample off of vinyl.” It one of those calling card couplets. The rest of Watching Movies continues in a similar manner, with Mac Miller’s music embracing more rugged and experimental tendencies. It winds up with another couple of highlights, the rambunctious team-up with Tyler, The Creator for “O.K.” and the closing confessional “Claymation.”

Lil Wayne: ‘Never Intended to Desecrate Flag’

By Luchina Fisher @luchina

Ilya S. Savenok/Getty Images

Lil Wayne took to Twitter and Facebook to deny purposely trampling on the flag in a video for his song “God Bless Amerika.”
“I didn’t step on the flag on purpose! It’s a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it’s just there as I perform,” he tweetedtoday. In the one-minute clip from the video which surfaced online Monday, he is seen singing and dancing in front of a large red, white and blue flag before it drops to reveal residents from his hometown Hollygrove, New Orleans. With Old Glory at his feet, Lil Wayne continues to perform, at times appearing to step on the flag.
But the 30-year-old rapper said on his Facebook page, “It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America.”

A wide shot of the footage allowed Internet viewers to see the flag at the rapper’s feet, but he said that camera angle was never intended to be seen in the finished music video.
“The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America,” Lil Wayne wrote on Facebook. “In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal whats behind it but will never see it on the ground.”

After the minute-long clip surfaced, some fans were quick to express outrage: “that is extremely disrespectful! 1st dropping tha american flag on tha ground and then wayne walking all over it!!! I have now lost all respect for you wayne!” one wrote.
The song’s lyrics fanned the controversy. They include the line, “My country ’tis of thee / Sweet land of kill ‘em all and let ‘em die,” and the hook, “God bless Amerika / This so godless Amerika” Wayne explained on Facebook that the song reflects the environment that he and many others have grown up in.
“In most people eyes including my own who were raised in that environment, the Hood is the only America they know and the only America I knew growing up. I was fortunate from my God giving talents to escape the Hood and see the other beautiful places this country has to offer but most people who are born in that environment don’t get that chance. That’s their view of their America. That was Dwayne M Carter from Hollygrove New Orleans view of America. That’s who I’m speaking for in this song.”

‘The Voice’: Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton And Adam Levine Cover A Beatles Classic

By Caila Ball

It’s been a big season of The Voice! Two new coaches — Shakira and Usher— joined Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in the rotation, Shakira gave birth (off-camera, but still), country took over, Carson Daly didn’t change out of his suit and Christina Milian rocked approximately 14 different nonsensical hairstyles during the live shows.

Oh. And some contestants performed. Try not to forget about them in the excitement and guest performances.

The two-night, four-hour season finale of The Voice got underway on Monday. In an evening filled with hyperbole and the earnest use of the phrase “go big or go home,” each of the three finalists performed three songs: a throwback from earlier in the season, a coach duet and a solo turn. While all of the performances would certainly hold some sway in voter decisions, only the solos are factored into the iTunes downloads portion of the vote.

Before we turn to the finalists’ performances, all four coaches join forces on stage together for the first time since the season premiere. This fab four perform The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From my Friends” (the Joe Cocker version), likely to assure America that even after all the bickering, they’re still all friends. Adorbs. These kids should perform together more often! The whole spectacle is fun, high-energy and manages to compliment each of their voices.

The brides-to-be stripping off to pose nude with their girlfriends in risque 'boudoir bachelorette party' shoots


Girl power: In a new trend sweeping the bridal industry, bachelorettes are banding together to pose nude or semi-nude for 'boudoir photography parties' - to celebrate both friendship and the female form

In a new trend sweeping the bridal industry, bachelorettes are banding together to pose nude or semi-nude for 'boudoir photography parties' - celebrating both friendship and the female form.
Empowering women of all shapes and sizes, the risque group photo shoots have become increasingly popular with brides-to-be, who would traditionally pose solo for a sultry image for their new husband.
'A lot of girls would bring along a friend for moral support, so then we thought, "Hey, wouldn’t it be fun if it was a whole group of people?"' photographer Catherine Leonard told the New York Post's Jane Ridley. 'They bring wine and food and turn it into a real celebration.'

Keep sake: Empowering women of all shapes and sizes, the risque group shoots have become increasingly popular with brides-to-be, who traditionally pose solo for a sultry image for their new husband

Ms Leonard charges between $400 and $500 per person for a boudoir party, which includes hair and make-up, and can be shot at her New York studio or on location.
'I am still in shock about how powerful my experience was,' said one woman, Sarah, about her boudoir party. 'I don't think I've ever felt so empowered!'

Pricey profile: Boudoir parties cost between $400 and $500 per person, which includes hair and make-up, and can be shot at her New York studio or on location

Jennie Richards, 32, and her friend Amy Blair, held a joint bachelorette party in Manhattan last month, which included a group boudoir photography session with Ms Leonard.
'[Our session] was all about bonding and having fun with my friends,' explained Ms Richards. 'We all felt incredibly happy and beautiful. It was great because the whole point was to feel good about ourselves.'

Group support: Brides-to-be Amy Blair (center) and Jennie Richards (far right) pose with their sisters Shelly Blair (far left), Jillian Richards and friend Tara Jefferson

She added, laughing: 'I’m not exactly sure what we’ll do with the print. Maybe put it in a drawer and dig it out in 15 years and say, "Wow, look how young and skinny we all were!"'
While most boudoir parties are booked by brides-to-be and their bridesmaids, other women who are celebrating milestones, like a 30th birthday or the birth of a new baby, will pose for the modern day glamor shots.
'It’s a great way to bond because there’s the obvious element of strength and safety in numbers,' explained photographer Christa Meola, who hosts boudoir parties in luxury hotel suites in New York and Los Angeles.
'Everyone has a blast and encourages each other to loosen up. It definitely makes for great photos when there are a lot of women doing this together.'

Cher credits luck for her lengthy career

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) — Cher is no stranger to tabloid fodder.
The 67-year-old singer who has spent most of her life in the spotlight offered this advice to young artists on navigating the world of paparazzi attention: "You're screwed. That's my advice."
"You don't deal with it. You just try to get a place where no one can find you and that's your little sanctuary," continued the "Believe" singer in an interview Tuesday. "I have a fabulous house that I love and it's my sanctuary."

Looking ever the rock star in leather and studs, Cher took the stage Tuesday for the season finale of NBC's "The Voice." She performed "Woman's World," the first single off her upcoming album of the same name — her 26th album since she began recording in the 1960s.

Cher said reality singing competitions are simply a modern incarnation of classic star-makers like "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts."
"It's just another vehicle, you know what I mean? Talent is talent," she said on the red carpet following the finale which crowned 16-year-old country singer Danielle Bradbery the winner.
The young powerhouse from Blake Shelton's team beat out indie rocker Michelle Chamuel and country duo the Swon Brothers for the season four title.

Though Cher has topped the Billboard pop charts throughout the last six decades, she credits luck, not necessarily talent, for her incredible staying power.
"If you have an idea, you tell me because I haven't got a clue," she said of her secret to career longevity. "I believe that luck has a lot to do with it. There are lots of people who are more talented or whatever, but somehow this has been my path. So this is what I'm doing."

James Gandolfini, Who Portrayed Tony Soprano, Dead at 51

By MICHAEL S. JAMES and LESLEY MESSER (@lesleymesser)

James Gandolfini, the actor who most famously portrayed Tony Soprano on the series "The Sopranos," has died in Italy at age 51.

"It is with immense sorrow that we report our client James Gandolfini passed away today while on holiday in Rome, Italy," said his managers, Mark Armstrong and Nancy Sanders. "Our hearts are shattered and we will miss him deeply. He and his family were part of our family for many years and we are all grieving."

Though he rose to his greatest fame playing a New Jersey mob boss on "The Sopranos," Gandolfini also had a long and diverse list of credits as a stage and film actor, including many character and supporting roles.

"He was a genius. Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his performances knows that," "Sopranos" creator David Chase said in a prepared statement this evening. "He is one of the greatest actors of this or any time. A great deal of that genius resided in those sad eyes. I remember telling him many times, 'You don't get it. You're like Mozart.' There would be silence at the other end of the phone. ... He wasn't easy sometimes. But he was my partner, he was my brother in ways I can't explain and never will be able to explain."

After "The Sopranos" ended its run in 2007, Gandolfini received a Tony nomination starring in the Broadway hit, "God of Carnage," described in a 2009 New York Times article as a "satiric comedy."

Gandolfini told The Times in 2009 that he had been looking for an acting change of pace.
"I love hearing people laugh," he told the interviewer. "Especially in New York, and especially now. To hear somebody out there just belly-laughing."

James Gandolfini has died aged 51 after a suspected heart attack, it has been confirmed.
The Sopranos star was on vacation in Rome and was due to attend the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily.
He is survived by his wife Deborah Lin and two children, Michael, 13, and nine-month-old daughter Liliana Ruth.

Devoted dad: James was said be 'thrilled' at the arrival of his daughter last year; he is pictured carrying her to lunch with his wife in May

In a statement Gandolfini's managers Mark Armstrong and Nancy Sanders confirmed the death, which happened on Wednesday.
'Our hearts are shattered and we will miss him deeply. He and his family were part of our family for many years and we are all grieving,' they said.
Cable channel HBO called the actor a 'special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone, no matter their title or position, with equal respect.'

Loving family: James and wife Deborah Lin attended the Cirque du Soleil in LA in 2011 with his son Michael and a friend

'We're all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family,' HBO said.
'He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us.'
Gandolfini's wife, former model Deborah Lin, gave birth to a baby girl last October, and the couple married in Hawaii in 2008.

Married to the mob: In character with his Sopranos co-stars Edie Falco, Robert Iler and Jamie-Lynn Sigler

Following the birth of his daughter, a spokesperson for the actor said he was 'thrilled' at becoming a father again.
His rep said: 'I am happy to confirm that James and Deborah Gandolfini are the proud parents of a happy and healthy baby girl.'
James also has a son, Michael, with his ex-wife, Marcy Wudarski, who he divorced after three years of marriage in 2002.

Complex character: James Gandolfini alongside actors Tony Sirico Federico Castellucio, and Steven Van Zandt in The Sopranos

There has been a huge outpouring of grief on Twitter from celebrities following the tragically sad news.
Amongst those to share their sadness were stars who had worked with Gandolfini.
'RIP James Gandolfini. A great friend,' wrote Jeff Daniels, his co-star in Broadway's God of Carnage.
'I am so deeply saddened by the untimely passing of sweet James Gandolfini!' tweeted Christina Applegate, his co-star in the 2004 comedy Surviving Christmas. 'My heart is broken for his family!! I’m in shock.'
Steve Carell, who was about to work with the larger-than-life star in HBO Films' Bone Wars, added: 'James Gandolfini. Unbelievably sad news. A fine man.'

Celebrated: James and his on-screen wife Edie Falco both won at the 2000 Golden Globes for their roles as Tony and Carmela Soprano

'He was a genius,' said The Sopranos creator David Chase.
'Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his performances knows that. He is one of the greatest actors of this or any time. A great deal of that genius resided in those sad eyes.'
He added: 'He wasn't easy sometimes. But he was my partner, he was my brother in ways I can't explain and never will be able to explain,'

Award-winning: James Gandolfini with his award for Outstanding Lead Actor at the 52nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles in 2000

Chris Albrecht who gave the greenlight for crime family drama at HBO in 1999 and approved Gandolfini for the role told Deadline: 'Absolutely stunned. I got the word from Lorraine Bracco and just got off with Brad Grey who had just heard from David Chase. We had all become a family. This is a tremendous loss.'
Gandolfini rose to fame playing the hit man in the 1993 film True Romance, and roles in films such as Terminal Velocity and Get Shorty followed.

Loving husband: James and his second wife Deborah Lin, pictured here at a HBO event in 2011, married in Hawaii in 2008

However, it wasn't until his breakout role in the hit television show The Sopranos that he became a household name playing mob boss Tony Soprano, winning three Emmy Awards for the role.
Gandolfini won a huge fan base playing complicated character, who juggled family life with his wife and children with leading a criminal organization at the same time.
The character died in the season finale, although the audience was never shown the moment of his death.
Speaking to Vanity Fair about the ending, Gandolfini said: ‘What the f***? I mean, after all I went through, all this death, and then it’s over like that?'

Versatile: James Gandolfini starred opposite Twilight's Kristen Stewart in the heartwarming 2010 movie Welcome To The Rileys

In memory: A reserved sign sits on the booth where the last series The Sopranos was filmed at Holsten's ice cream parlor in Bloomfield, New Jersey on Wednesday

Meanwhile his co-star Joe Gannascoli, who played Vito Spatafore on the HBO drama, said he was shocked and heartbroken at the news.
'Fifty-one and leaves a kid -- he was newly married. His son is fatherless now ... It's way too young,' Gannascoli said.
Following the success of the HBO television series - which finished in 2007 - he continued to make big screen appearances in critically acclaimed films including In The Loop and The Taking of Pelham 123.

Tribute: Gandolfini's picture is displayed in the window of a restaurant in the Little Italy neighborhood of New York following his sudden death on Wednesday

He appeared alongside Twilight actress Kristen Stewart in the heartwarming drama Welcome to the Rileys and voiced the Wild Thing Carol in Where the Wild Things Are.
In his personal life, Gandolfini made his first public appearance with Deborah at the premiere of the second half of the sixth and final series of The Sopranos in March 2007.
Their wedding just a year later was an incredibly romantic affair.

Born in Westwood, New Jersey, Gandolfini graduated from Park Ridge High School, where he cut his teeth acting in school plays, and went on to study communications at Rutgers University.

'I'm naked in the land of venomous snakes!': Contestants on new Discovery show are most definitely Naked and Afraid

Reality show features naked men and women stranded together in remote locations who must also use their wits and bodies to survive
The ratings-grabbing programme is billed as the 'Everest of survival challenges'


Grimy: The contestants on Naked and Afraid had never met before being teamed up to survive in the jungle. Kim Shelton and Shane Lewis can't hide their exhaustion.

It would take a brave soul to strip off and bare all for new reality show Naked and Afraid.
Deposited in the jungle without food and water, their breath jagged and shallow, and their nerves on edge,the contestants come face to face with hyenas and poisonous snakes, with one muttering: 'God, we're so screwed'.
Six strangers were put together for the Discovery show, debuting on Sunday, and stranded in the wilderness.
And despite all being experienced survivalists, they're still scared senseless as another admits: 'This is one nasty place...I'm naked in the land of venomous snakes!'

Survival of the fittest: Nude castaways star on Discovery's Naked and Afraid.

Naked and Afraid is billed as taking 'survival of the fittest' to the next level - and dubbed 'the Everest of survival challenges'.
Each week, a new pair of complete and total strangers - one man and one woman - will find themselves stranded in and, quite literally, exposed to some of the world's most extreme weather environments.
Each duo will be left high and dry with no food, no water and and no clothes. They must survive on their own for a full 21 days, with nothing but one personal item each.

Brave: A contestant goes diving for dinner on Naked and Afraid, which starts on Sunday night.ht.

Her raunchiest video ever! Miley Cyrus writhes around on a bed wearing white spandex in full length clip for her new song We Can't Stop


Her raunchiest video yet? The full length version of Miley Cyrus's video for her new song We Can't Stop was released on Wednesday

She has revealed racy tidbits from her music video for her new single We Can't Stop in the days leading up to it's release on Wednesday.
But nothing prepared her fans for the full blown saucy antics Miley Cyrus gets up to in the full length version of the clip.
Leaving very little to the imagination in a white crop top and matching white spandex leggings, the 20-year-old does some of her raunchiest dance moves ever.

Showing some skin: Miley shows off her midriff in a white crop top and matching tight spandex leggings

At the beginning of the video, the platinum blonde shows off her masculine side, combing her hair roughly and fitting a gold and diamond grill into her mouth.
But it's not long before she is seen lying on the floor, displaying her flat tummy in her tight white ensemble.
She then gyrates and writhes around on a bed, the pop star moving sexily to the beat of the music.

Quick change: Later she slips into somewhat of a hybrid between an Eighties exercise and gangster-style ensemble consisting of a high-cut leotard worth over a 'West Coast' cropped T-shirt

Miley then invites some friends into the video clip, conducting a dance party at what appears to be a home.
Under some flashing disco lights she is seen smacking the behind of a woman with a wooden spoon whilst wearing extremely high-cut denim shorts.

They just don't stop: She continues on with her suggestive dance moves

The lady is then seen returning the favour and Miley then jumps into a pool with some bikini-clad brunettes.
The former Disney star then takes her raunchy antics to the bathroom where she is seen writhing around in a modern-style bathtub.
Later she slips into somewhat of a hybrid between an Eighties exercise and gangster-style ensemble consisting of a high-cut leotard worth over a 'West Coast' cropped T-shirt and a black and white headscarf knotted around her head.

Odd: Miley's video then takes a dark and strange turn, with the pop star changing into black sheer lingerie, which barely covers her modesty, and kissing a plastic doll after jumping in the pool with the toy

She is seen dancing around a white room with people dressed up in bear costumes.
As Miley sings 'To my home girls here with the big butt/Shaking it like we at a strip club', the blonde then bends over in her tight white trousers and shakes her bottom, doing her now infamous 'Twerk' dance moves.
Miley's video then takes a dark and strange turn, with the pop star changing into black sheer lingerie, which barely covers her modesty, and kissing a plastic doll after jumping into the pool with the toy.

Bad in black: Miley wears a sheer neglige featuring embroidered palm trees that cover her breasts

And near the end of the clip, Miley turns tough, belting a pinata with a bat and throwing up gang signs as she does hip hop moves in a mesh crop top, black spandex leggings and a beanie hat featuring a netted fascinator.
Sticking out her tongue, she sings the words 'It's my mouth, I will say what I want to'.
The final frames of the clip show Miley standing in a hotel room wearing nothing but a white leotard with the words 'Dope' emblazoned across the front.

So 'Dope': The final frames of the clip show Miley standing in a hotel room wearing nothing but a white leotard with the words 'Dope' emblazoned across the front

The Last Song star then gets into a physical play fight with another girl before lying down on a sofa with a shirtless male and kissing him on his bare torso.
We Can't Stop is the first single from Miley's fourth studio album due out later this year.
The pop singer also released a 19-second tease of the video on Monday that featured her singing the song at sunset while sitting on a ledge with friends.

So THAT'S why they're watching! The Valleys star Natalee Harris goes topless on Ibiza break... as reality show hits a ratings high


So that's why they're watching! The Valleys star Natalee Harris went topless in Ibiza as it was revealed the season two finale of the reality show hit a ratings high

It's been a ratings hit for MTV, and it's not hard to see why.
The Valleys star Natalee Harris proved once again that she's not shy when it comes to stripping off as she went topless while on holiday in Ibiza earlier this week.
Natalee, 24, showed no signs of embarrassment as she shed her pink bikini top to ensure she got an even tan as she sunbathed by the pool.

Painted lady: Natalee displayed her vast array of tattoos as she climbed out of the pool

The former call centre worker was also seen showing off her large array of inkings on the break, which include an enormous floral design down her side.
She recently had the tattoo extended so that it also covers part of her upper thigh, and her other inkings include a smattering of stars on her back, as well as an etching that looks like a bat on the small of her back.
Her tattoos certainly aren't to everyone's taste, but that won't be of any bother to the loud and boisterous Welsh native.

Getting an even tan: Natalee looked determined to achieve a good bronze as she sat in the sunshine

Before joining the show she told MTV: 'Good press or bad press, it's all some kind of press. There's going to be bitchiness and more hating but on a larger scale - it doesn’t really bother me.'
Natalee has been lapping up the sunshine and working on her tan with co stars Carley Belmonte and Jordan Reed.
The trio have been doing personal appearances in clubs in Spain, Ibiza and Greece.

Ratings high: The season two finale of the show hit a ratings high on Tuesday night

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that the reality series hit a ratings high on Tuesday night.
According to viewing figures, an audience of 211,000 16-34s tuned in to watch the finale of season two - the show's highest ever overnight ratings.
While MTV have yet to confirm whether there will be a third series of the show, the ratings combined with the fact that the first season became the second highest rating programme in MTV UK's hisotry, suggest that it looks more than a little likely.

But Nicki Minaj took it one step further on Wednesday, as she retweeted a topless photo of herself, preserving her modesty with her own hands.
The star seemed keen for all of her fans to see the old snap of her, which showed her half dressed as she stood backstage.

The superstar wore one of her typically avant garde hair styles, with her blonde locks piled up high on top of her head in one of her trademark looks.

It has just been announced that Nicki will join former American Idol co-judge Mariah Carey at the forthcoming BET Awards as she's set to take to the stage.

She's lost her swimsuit! Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigan strips down completely nude for GQ magazine


In the nude: Sports Illustrated model Chrissy Teigan poses completely nude in the July edition of GQ magazine

As a Sports Illustrated model she's no stranger to stripping down.
But in a new photo shoot for famed men's magazine GQ, Chrissy Teigan goes completely nude.
The 27-year-old is pictured wearing nothing but a pair of stilettos in the very racy snap.

Bikini gal: Chrissy has posed in Sports Illustrated's famed Swimsuit Issue four years in a row, in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013
The bikini mode

In the image, Chrissie poses in the great outdoors, leaning against a window pane just managing to cover her modesty by crossing her arms over her breasts.
In one hand she holds a fan and the only item of clothing she is wearing is her dainty pair of beige Marc Jacobs heels.
Chrissie, the fiancee of singer and songwriter John Legend, also lets her natural beauty shine through wearing minimal make up on her complexion and her hair styled in a natural wave.

In love: Chrissy is currently engaged to singer and songwriter John Legend

The bikini model is often seen in next to nothing, posing in Sports Illustrated's famed Swimsuit Issue four years in a row, in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
She is also known for her hilarious and often controversial Twitter and Instagram feed.
Earlier this year, she was red flagged on Instagram after posting a nude snap of herself getting a spray tan.

It's war: Earlier this year Chrissy drew the Twitter wrath of troubled Amanda Bynes who called the swimsuit model 'old' and 'ugly' in a defensive and mean-spirited rant

Chrissy tells GQ that it was in fact her mother who took the snap.
'What no one knows is that my mom took it! My mom frickin' threw me under the bus!' she says with a laugh.
More recently Chrissy drew the Twitter wrath of troubled Amanda Bynes who called the swimsuit model 'old' and 'ugly' in a defensive and mean-spirited rant.
Teigen then posted a tweet in which she said it was 'unsettling' that Bynes had any 'support' to retweet her recent bizarre rants.
She followed up with another tweet that read: 'Support people with mental illness, yes. But don't condone/enable scary and poor behavior.'
Bynes, 27, responded by saying that Teigen was 'not a pretty model compared to me' and claimed she was 'far prettier' than the Sports Illustrated beauty.

Pictured: Kate Upton goes topless on the beach in Hawaii


Working on her tan lines: Kate Upton went topless with a male companion on the beach in Hawaii in newly-released photographs dating back to October last year

As a swimsuit model, two-pieces at the beach are all in a day's work.
But when on vacation, it seems Kate Upton puts up even more front.
The 21-year-old Sports Illustrated cover girl, joined by an unknown male companion, is seen here in newly-released pictures, soaking up the sun in Hawaii back in October last year.

Lounging around: The model soaked up the sun on the golden sands of Secret Beach on the island of Kauai

Kate went topless, only wearing a pair of black bikini bottoms, a hat and shades as she enjoyed relaxing on the gorgeous coastline.
Upton has described herself as 'very confident' with her body - and looking at these pictures it is not hard to see why.
Despite criticism about her comparatively larger figure compared to other models in the fashion industry, Kate said last year: 'I'm not going to starve just to be thin.
'I want to enjoy life, and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.'

She's got front: The Sports Illustrated star dispensed with her bikini top and completed her beach babe look with a hat and shades

Enjoying life certainly seems to be a motto for the model of late.
In the past month alone she has been linked Dancing With The Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy and now the rumour mill is rife she is getting close with Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin.
The New York Post's Page Six reported that Kate joined the basketball star at Lower East Side venue Beuaty & Essex on Wednesday and were 'very cosy with each other,' according to a source.

Life's a beach: Kate has seen her star rise recently, with two Sports Illustrated covers and now a burgeoning film career

Earlier this month she rang in her 21st birthday with the 33-year-old DWTS hunk Maksim after being set up by mutual friends.
A source told UsMagazine.com: 'It's very new. They were set up through friends. They just started dating.'
A spokesperson for the model refused to comment but a friend close to the blonde beauty, who was previously linked to P. Diddy, confirmed that she and Maksim have been spending time together.

Fling: Kate went out for dinner with Dancing With The Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy in New York earlier this month, sparking romance rumours

However, the insider insisted that they have known each other for a long time and are just friends.
The duo was spotted on a romantic date together at Scalinatella in New York City's Upper East Side neighbourhood recently.
An eyewitness said they were holding hands at their table and added: 'They were very canoodly. It was a very intimate meal.'
Kate is currently shooting her first major film role in the city alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann in The Other Woman.

Reality star and Kanye West have 'left hospital with baby girl'
New rumours couple have decided against 'K' name


Looking swell: Kim Kardashian looked radiant as she showed off her baby bump in a pretty bikini just days before being rushed into an early labour

She suffered throughout what she described as a difficult and painful pregnancy.
But in the few days before she was rushed to hospital with suspected preeclampsia, there was a sanguine beauty about Kim Kardashian as she relaxed in Los Angeles sunshine.
The 32-year-old looked beautiful as she showed off her expectant form in a pretty bikini while relaxing by a pool with friends.

Perfect form: Kim showed off her beautiful form in the snakeskin two piece

She gained a substantial amount of weight during her pregnancy and Kardashian is apparently already trying to shift those pounds.
Meanwhile it's been revealed that the baby's name does NOT start with a 'k': 'They're not quite ready to announce the name yet,; a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly.
'But the name definitely does not start with a K, despite all the rumors that have been out.'

Proud: Kim said she didn't enjoy being pregnant but she looks comfortable with her swollen form

The reality star is reported to have just left hospital following the birth of her daughter in the early hours of Saturday morning according to Hollywood Life.
And according to reports she can’t wait to get back in the gym and regain her slim figure.
‘She’s already looking ahead to when she can exercise again,’ a source told Us Weekly.
Another added: ‘She really wants to get back into shape. It’s important to her.’

Putting her feet up: Kim looked happy and relaxed as she soaked up the Calirfornia rays

Kim, 32, was working with trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson throughout her pregnancy, but the publication also claims she is considering hiring Gunnar Peterson.
Gunnar is responsible for helping Kim’s younger sister Khloe, 28, with her recent 25lbs weight loss.
While she is not able to start exercising just yet, Kim is allegedly already watching what she eats.

Ever stylish: Kim looked as well put together as always in her swimwear

The magazine claims that the star’s hospital room is chock-a-block with flowers but she has insisted well-wishers are not allowed to bring any tasty treats for her to eat.
‘She has over 30 bouquets from loved ones,’ a source said. ‘She told everyone not to bring sweets – she said she doesn’t need any temptations.’

Lil Snupe, Meek Mill Protege, Dead at 18

By Billboard Staff

Lil Snupe
The rising rapper was shot and killed in Winnfield, La., early Thursday morning.

(UPDATED 4:15 p.m.) Emerging rapperLil Snupe, a recent signee to Meek Mill's Dream Chasers label, was shot and killed early Thursday morning, June 20, in Winnfield, La.

Police say 18-year-old Addarren Ross was killed around 4 a.m. at the Maplewood Apartments in Winnfield, according to CBS affiliate KNOE 8. Ross, known as Lil Snupe, had two gunshot wounds.
A suspect has been identified but no further information has been given.

STORY: J. Cole Fan Threatens to Kill Sister if Rapper Doesn't Retweet Him
Winnfield (pop. 4,840) is located about an hour north of Alexandria in the heart of the state. It's not immediately known why Snupe was in the small town. Sources tell Billboard the artist may have been living in Baton Rouge, while some previous articles written about the young rapper have listed Jonesboro, La., about 80 miles east of Shreveport, as his hometown.

In freestyle raps posted online, Snupe has name-dropped "225" -- the Baton Rouge area code.
His manager, DJ Smallz, tweeted of Lil Snupe's death this morning,"The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil n---- lilsnupe."
Dream Chasers' Louie V Gutta also tweeted, "I aint gone lie i cant stop crying! I Can't Believe My Youngin Gone! RIP lil bro @LilSnupe."

Mill signed Snupe to Dream Chasers last year after listening to his mixtape for 20 minutes, the late Louisiana rapper told MTV News in February. "He was in a van, they was finna pull off. And I went and knocked on the van, on the window. They let the window down, grabbed the mixtape and it was like 10 minutes later, 20 minutes later they called me," he said.
"He was spittin' so much pain, he's from the South with a flow like an East Coast guy," Meek told MTV.
Snupe repped his home state in his last tweet, "i Hold it Down 4 Louisiana."
Snupe released his mixtape, "Real Ni--a in Charge," in April.
