Hot New Video: Miley Cyrus Covers ‘Jolene’

miley cyrus covers jolene

Did you know Dolly Parton is Miley Cyrus’ godmother? I hadn’t known that interesting little country music connection, but Dolly is. Now Miley’s released her cover of ‘Jolene,’ a song Dolly performed. Here’s the video. It was shot a while ago: Miley’s hair is up in a topknot. Goodness does she look different now! She looks more like a rocker now.

Anyway, what do you think of Miley’s cover of ‘Jolene’? Does she do her godmother Dolly proud? I think so.

Natalie Portman & Kristen Stewart Top Forbes’ List Of Most Bankable Stars

forbes top 10 most bankable stars

Forbes released one of their nicer lists: The Most Bankable Stars. I was kind of surprised at who topped the list: ‘Thor‘ and ‘Black Swan’ star Natalie Portman. I’m glad, though. I’ve always been a fan of Natalie’s! ‘Black Swan’ was a low budget film that earned a lot of money, which is what earned Natalie her #1 spot. Kristen Stewart was #2. This absolutely makes sense: the ‘Twilight‘ franchise is huge. ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ did great box office, too. Take a look at the top 10 Most Bankable Stars below.

1. Natalie Portman

2. Kristen Stewart

3. Shia LaBeouf

4. Robert Pattinson

5. Daniel Radcliffe

6. Taylor Lautner

7. Bradley Cooper

8. Dwayne Johnson

9. Amy Adams

10. Kevin James

Breaking News: Brandy Is Engaged!

Holidays are a popular time of year to get engaged, and the celebrities are no exception. We heard about Janet Jackson’s engagement to Wissam al Mana. Now there’s news of another engagement: singer Brandy is engaged to music executive Ryan Press! An insider told Us Weekly:

“They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right.”

Brandy had been open about wanting to marry Ryan. In an August interview she said:

“I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don’t know. I’m going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be. . . I guess it will happen when it’s the right time.

“I had given up on love a long time ago. It just didn’t seem to work for me, so I was single for a very long time. I stopped looking for love and then I ran into my boyfriend. He just loves me for who I am. I don’t have to camouflage anything for him or put on a mask. I can completely be myself and he loves me so much and I love him just the way he is, too.”

This will be Brandy’s first marriage. She has a 10-year-old daughter, Sy’rai, with Robert Smith. The two said they were engaged, but after they split, Brandy admitted they had never actually gotten married. Congratulations!
