Worst celebrity influence of 2009, Miley Cyrus voted

Miley Cyrus, one of Disney's hottest stars of the past three years with hit records and hit films, the worst celebrity influence has been voted of 2009 by the very people who made her a star, tweens and teens, according to an online poll on Wednesday.
Cyrus, 16, took 42 percent of votes in the poll for AOL's (Just So You Know) website aimed at 9 15 year olds, pushing Britney Spears and rapper Kanye West into second and third places, respectively, in a section on worst celebrity influences of the year.

The poor showing of the singer actress no reason were going and the popular star of Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana" television series.
But the ranking follows a year which has seen Cyrus controversially dating a 20 year old model, making "slant eyes" in an informal snapshot criticized as mocking Asians, and being accused of pole dancing on a teen awards show.
Cyrus also came in No. 4 in the category of favorite female artist, behind 19 year old country sensation Taylor Swift, "I Kissed a Girl" singer Katy Perry and R&B star Beyonce. The poll attracted almost 50,000 votes.
"I think Miley is in an interesting space where she is trying to graduate from being 'Hannah Montana' and a Disney channel celebrity and coming into her own and having a career beyond Disney," said Stephanie Cohen, editor of
"I think her fans still want her to be the sweet Hannah Montana and she is trying to age up...Parents are definitely resisting it," Cohen told Reuters.
Cyrus has been one of the biggest teen idols in the world since 2006, selling more than 7 million albums, starting her own fashion line, and taking $154 million at the worldwide box-office for "Hannah Montana: The Movie" in 2009.

Friends say the '3' singer is so strictly guarded by dad Jamie Spears she has lost track of the time and days of the week.

"She'll even call people at all hours of night for a general conversation and acts like it's the middle of the day or something."
Jamie - who took charge of Britney's personal and financial affairs after her emotional breakdown in January 2008 - is so determined to keep his daughter under control he is reportedly systematically firing her staff so she doesn't have the opportunity to get close to anyone.
The source revealed: "He's actually trying to clean up her image. He's making a lot of differents to the people around her. Everyone is a bit on edge they could be the next one to be replaced.
"Britney's family has seen what happens when she gets too close to outsiders and they lose control, they don't want it happening again."
Jamie blames Britney's relationship with former manager Sam Lutfi and paparazzo Adnan Ghalib for his daughter's breakdown.
He has taken out restraining orders against both men.

Beyonce Knowles' concert in Malaysia was postponed

In Malaysia Beyonce Knowles' concert was postponed by the singer herself, revealed Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim.
Datuk said that there was no intervention by his ministry on the matter and that Beyonce, 28, who was scheduled to hold the concert on October 18, had decided to postpone the concert on her own, reports New Straits Times Online. According to him, there are many possibilities as to why she decided not to perform on the given date, and cited that one of the reasons could be because of pressure from the arrangers.He also said her refusal to comply with the dress code or simply because the concert would not be profitable could lead to her postponement.But he denied rumours that she had been pressured by threats from certain groups after she announced that Malaysia would be one of the venues for her “I AM...World Tour”. Pas Youth was one of the groups, which had declared to take “further action” over the government’s refusal to ban the concert at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil.

concert in the Giants stadium, Bruce Springsteen’s

The Giants stabium in the Bruce Springsteen rocked with one last glorious and powerful concert on Friday, before the much loved stadium is unhappy razed to create parking for a new stadium.
It was Springsteen’s record 24th performance at Giants Stadium. He had performed here for the first time in 1985, where according to the time of New York, “the audiences are his most fervent fans: fellow New Jerseyans.”

How I saw Bruce Springsteen at Giants Stadium for $15, Born too cheap

As I have noted, I am by nature something of a cheapskate. So is my sailing buddy, whom I will call "the Captain."
The Captain and I have made an art form of attending events at minimum cost. We have perfected our approach at Rutgers football games. Instead of paying to park, we jam a couple of old bicycles into the station wagon. We find free parking just off campus and then pedal past pedestrians as we search out a scalper who will sell us tickets below face value.
So when I read that there were a lot of extra tickets for those Bruce Springsteen concerts at Giants Stadium, I conceived a challenge: Could we get the most coveted tickets, the floor section, for less than $20 each?
First there was the question of where to park. No problem. In researching a prior story, I had discovered a spot on the Hackensack River not far from the stadium.
The last time I’d been to this spot it had been broad daylight. As we approached on Thursday night, however, the headlights illuminated a narrow path through a swamp. This was the spot where the bullet riddled body of Genovese crime family member John DeGilio was found in 1988.
It was a perfect setting to begin a Jersey evening, in other words. We parked and before long we were flying past people who had paid $25 to park in the far lots. We soon met up with the only other cyclist on the scene, a tall guy with long hair who identified himself as "Jerry Garcia."
Jerry was even cheaper than the two of us. As we chatted, he was collecting surplus beers from fans who had to ditch them before entering the stadium. He told us he bikes to the stadium often to buy scalped tickets, and that on this evening we had a buyer’s market.
"I believe that anyone who’s out here holding a ticket is going to have to unload it for five, ten bucks," he said.
Though the scalpers often get rich off Springsteen, this time around the Boss had outsmarted them. At first, his management had announced just three dates, prompting the usual buying frenzy. The frenzy continued when he announced two more dates. But there just aren’t all that many people who want to stand around a stadium on a cold October night.
"The scalpers got burned," said Jerry as forlorn figures walked by yelling, "Anyone need tickets?"
Soon enough we encountered a guy who was stuck with three tickets for the floor, each with a face value of $115. He said he’d take $30 for two, but he then gave us the third anyway. He headed home, but not before offering this word of economic wisdom.
"Scalping’s tough," he said. "Scalpers don’t have a 401k or a medical plan."
Once inside, I was heartened to hear that Bruce has apparently taken the advice I have so graciously offered him over the years. He’s given up on all that folksy stuff and gone back to rock-and-roll. We got our $15 worth.
The next day, I got on the phone with the man who is perhaps the nation’s leading expert on ticket scalping, Steve Happel. Happel, who is an economics professor at Arizona State University, said that if artists really wanted to eliminate scalping, they could do so by either raising their prices or auctioning off the tickets. But they don’t want to eliminate scalping, for the exact reason illustrated by this stadium stand: Sometimes it works in their favor.
"It’s actually quite clever what Springsteen did. He’s not stupid," said Happel. "He must have made a fortune on this one. It was the scalpers who got burned."
Indeed it was. The stadium was packed, but many of those in attendance had no doubt bought tickets at a discount on secondary sites. Springsteen, however, got full face value.
When I told Happel I’d gotten floor seats for a mere 15 bucks, he responded, "That’s great! The free market works."
Well, it certainly worked for us. Having beaten both the parking fee and high ticket prices, we hit White Castle on the way home. It was a tightwad trifecta, and we arrived back at the Jersey Shore justly proud of our accomplishment.

Bruce Springsteen rocks Giants Stadium for the last time

It was the "Born In the U.S.A." album that first made Bruce Springsteen popular enough to headline Giants Stadium, in 1985. Last night, he closed the circle, performing the album -- songs like "Glory Days," "Dancing In the Dark" and "My Hometown," in their original order -- at his last Giants Stadium concert.
He's not preceding, but the stadium is. The building will be dismantled next year, with a new stadium, recently being built next to it, serving as the new home of the Giants and Jets.
Concert goers were welcomed to the show with a message on a huge video screen hanging over the stage: "Tonight is the last concert at Giants Stadium. October 9, 2009. Thank you New Jersey!"
During the show's opening number, a new song called "Wrecking Ball," Springsteen emphasized a line about "our little victories and glories" turning into parking lots. At this time next year, space where he was standing will be used for just that purpose.

Other songs in the setlist included dependable rousers like "Badlands," "Born To Run," "The Rising" and "The Promised Land," the rarely performed oldie "Spirit In the Night" and pop megahit "Hungry Heart" (with the 60 year old Springsteen crowd-surfing). In identification of the gig's significance, he covered the Rolling Stones song, "The Last Time."
Springsteen and his E Street Band announced, ahead of time, that they planned to play "Born In the U.S.A." in its entirety. This stand particular to make in attempt, they have played one of their classic albums at each show: "Born To Run" on Sept. 30 and Oct. 8, "Darkness On the Edge of Town" on Oct. 2, and "Born In the U.S.A.," for the first time, on Oct. 3.
Springsteen and the band will also perform at Madison Square Garden in New York on Nov. 7-8. But last night's gig could be the last home state E Street appearance for quite a while.
Last month, guitarist Steven Van Zandt said in a conference call with reporters that after the current tour ends, Nov. 22 in Buffalo, the band will be off for "I don’t know how long -- a year, year and a half, two years."
In his new book "Big Man: Real Life and Tall Tales," E Street saxophonist Clarence Clemons wrote that after the recent tour, the band plans to have "a long, long recovery period."

Springsteen shrank from speechifying, but he subtly acknowledged the tough economic climate by pounding home lyrics like “Hard times come; hard time go” in “Wrecking Ball,” and “Cover Me’s” “Times are tough; just getting tougher.” The only odd moment was during the Boss’s band introductions, which didn’t occur until late in the night. When he pointed out the Big Man, Clarence Clemons, the imposing saxophonist pimped his new book, Big Man: Real Life & Tall Tales, by holding it conspicuously so it appeared on the giant video screens.
Shameless self-promotion aside, it was a glorious night it felt like the best Irish wake you’d ever attended. As far as I can tell, Springsteen intends to be around to close Giants Stadium’s successor in 40 years.
Were you there last night? What song were you singing all the way home? (Me? “American Land”) Were you disappointed that the parking lot rumors about special guests failed to be true? How long did you wait after “Jersey Girl” in the hopes that the band would return for another encore? (Me? 11 minutes.)

X Factor, Take That, Coldplay and Britney Spears gig tickets

Millions of music fans may face dearer concert tickets if a mega merger is allowed, watchdogs warned yesterday.
The Competition Commission needs to scupper a £500million tie-up between booking agency Ticketmaster and promoter Live Nation.
It is powerless to block the deal as both businesses are based in the US. But, fearing the move may get the goahead from American authorities, it yesterday revealed ways to limit its power here.
Options include forcing bosses to split or sell UK arms or make them flog tickets through rivals.
World No.1 Ticketmaster has 50% of the UK market, with nearest rival See Tickets about 20%.
Last year Germany's CTS, the global No.2, announced it wanted to expand here.
But that is unlikely if the Ticketmaster deal goes ahead, with the Commission saying: "It could lead to higher prices and lower service quality."
Live Nation is the world's largest concert promoter, with Madonna, Coldplay and U2 among stars on its books.
Singing legend Bruce Springsteen opposed the deal.
But Ticketmaster and Live Nation stated yesterday they "remain optimistic that it will ultimately be approved".

The Show At Conservative Party Conference U2's Bono Steals

The U2 frontman appeared before leader David Cameron's speech to urge the party to maintain the target of spending 7% of GDP on aid."Hello there, if you can swallow an Irish man saying what's great about Great Britain, indulge me for a minute,” Bono said in a video message.“Because what's happened over the Britain's relationship in the last few years with the developing world has been so inspiring to me.He added: "It's a brave thing: keeping Britain's aid promise to the developing world, but it is the right thing to do and it is what's great about Great Britain.”The singer also deliered a video message before prime minister Gordon Brown's key note speech at the Labour Party conference last week in Brighton.

Miley Cyrus to Best bet performs at the Palace

The Miley mania has cooled a bit since the Disney star lit up metro Detroit with a group of dates two years ago, but don't kid yourself: The singer actress remains a hot property "Hannah Montana".
Wonder World tour this stop on her just weeks ahead of her 17th birthday promises 90 minutes of bright colored tween pop, complete all the video and production with frills you'd expect from a millionaire music sensation in '09.
It's not high art, but if her previous shows are any denotation, it won't be the stuff of parental torture, either. Opening is Metro Station featuring Miley's tattoo laden brother Trace on guitar and vocals.

Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole has revealed she struggles to trust people, and finds it hard to gig others how important they are to her.
Cheryl Cole trusts her dogs more than her husband.
The Girls Aloud singer, whose soccer star husband Ashley Cole was accused of having a fling with a hairdresser last year, admits finding it hard to know who is genuine and who is not.
She said: "I've come to the conclusion that I don't trust anybody in life except my mother and my dogs. I'm scared to let people know how much they mean to me, and it's scary that you can love a small hairy thing so much."
The 26 year old star has two pooches, chihuahuas Buster and Coco, and says spending time with them is the main way she relaxes.
Despite her admission, Cheryl insists she and Ashley are glad and have moved on from the reports of his alleged infidelity.
She told Britain's Sunday Times newspaper: "We're glad. You have to go through life. You have to have that learning curve. That pleasure versus pain. In general my life goes s**t s**t **t, amazing amazing amazing.
"I'm on the longest roller coaster ever. I feel like for the past six months I'm starting to level out. I'm sure at some point the nemesis will come back, but I feel like when the bad things happen there'll always be something good coming."

Robbie Williams' wedding wish

Robbie Williams' girlfriend has refused to marry him.The 'Bodies' singer is said to be desperate to tie the knot with Ayda Field, but she has been too scarred by her mother's divorces to consider Robbie's proposal. A friend explained to Britain’s More magazine: "Ayda loves Robbie with all her heart and would do anything for him apart from walk down the aisle. The topic of marriage cropped up in their first few months together, which is a huge leap on Robbie's part – he finally realised he'd met 'The One'."He'd love a wedding. It actually would make his life complete after all the madness that's surrounded him. But Ayda has seen her mother divorced twice and is all too aware of the pain it's caused. She doesn't want to end up going the same route."Despite Ayda's refusal to walk down the aisle, the couple who have been dating for two years need to have children in the near future. The source continued: "Ayda is planning to be a stay-at-home mother, cooking, cleaning and taking care of Rob. They need at least two or three kids and have names picked out already."It seems like the perfect fairytale. If Ayda would change her mind about marriage, it'd be the icing on the cake for him."
