It's been a controversial month for Miley Cyrus.

First, the singer released the official musical video for "Can't Be Tamed," sending a clear message to anyone that viewed it: So long, Hannah Montana!

Then, another video landed the singer in hot water: she was filmed grinding and bumping with movie producer Adam Shankman.

Through it all, though, Liam Hemsworth has remained by her side. The Australian actor told Hollywood Life that "Can't Be Tamed" is a "great" video and:

“Everyone gets criticism, it’s kind of what comes with this job... everybody’s trying to bring you down. She’s got a good head on her shoulders.”

Just Strolling

As for his relationship with Miley, Liam added:

“We get along great, she’s a great girl. We work great together."

Apparently, Liam's vocabulary is as varied as his girlfriend's wardrobe choices. Still, these two do appear to be a stable couple and we can't knock Hemsworth for standing by his gal.

Is she copying Lady Gaga, or is it the other way around?

While fans and critics engage in this silly debate, Christina Aguilera is focusing on more important things:

The singer, and husband Jordan Bratman, visited two schools in Haiti last week, a country still ravaged by a recent earthquake. They met with children receiving food and aid there, as the singer is the World Food Program's new Ambassador Against Hunger.

Christina served meals of rice and beans to the children, discussed the food/supply response with officials and learned about the nation's ongoing recovery effort. She said:

"I was so moved by the devastation in Haiti but also by the spirit of its people. The children have such joy and are eager to learn despite the destruction around them. The children deserve a chance, and I want to make sure they get a chance."

In equally important Aguilera news: the artist is naked on the cover of GQ!

Troy Bolton who?!?

Following last year's successful transition away from the High School Musical franchise (with 17 Again), Zac Efron takes another step forward in his adult movie career this summer.

The young heatthrob stars as the title character in Charlie St. Cloud, a drama based on a popular 2004 novel.

In the film, the 22-year-old boyfriend of Vanessa Hudgens portrays a young man who gains special powers after surviving a serious accident: he can communicate with his late brother.

Amanda Crew, Kim Basinger and Ray Liotta also star in the movie, which hits theaters on July 30.

This role may be quite the departure from High School Musical, but don't worry: Efron brings the same hotness as always to the screen.

Check it out for yourself via the following movie stills and the Charlie St. Cloud trailer...

A job at Facebook is good. Better than dating Jake Pavelka, even.

Being the new star of ABC's The Bachelorette is the best, however.

For Ali Fedotowsky, finding stardom love is the only goal this time around. Her starring turn as The Bachelorette premiere begins a week from tonight (May 24).

"I'm ready to meet someone and put him first," she says, and she's not messing around with this - she's "definitely" ready to settle down and have kids!

Oh, to be the lucky man she picks.

For more on which of the 25 potential soul mates she ends up with, check out The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled so far ... they're pretty eye-opening.

She's bid Facebook farewell, but we'd still "Friend" Ali Fedotowsky.

There has been criticism of The Bachelor franchise recycling people who are affable, but not that interesting (cough, Jake), but we're psyched for Ali's season.

We expect plenty of drama, contestants butting heads and shocking twists - some contrived and some actually legitimate. But Ali Fedotowsky's motives are clear:

"I'm back and ready to find love!" she says. Good to know.

Will Ali Fedotowsky be a good Bachelorette?

Heavy metal legend Ronnie James Dio, former frontman of Black Sabbath and his own band Dio, died over the weekend from stomach cancer. He was 67.

His wife, Wendy, posted the sad news on his website:

"Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May."

"Many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all."

"We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss."

"Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever."

R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio (1942-2010).

Wendy announced that her husband was diagnosed with stomach cancer on November 25, and he underwent at least seven rounds of chemo. His current band, Heaven and Hell, canceled its summer tour on May 4 because of his condition.

Born Ronald James Padavona, Dio performed with the bands Testament of Apollo, Elf and Rainbow before joining Sabbath in 1979 after Ozzy Osbourne left.

He was inducted into the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame on January 17, 2007.

Late last year, after she was outed as Tiger Woods' mistress, Rachel Uchitel was almost immediately in negotiations to pose for Playboy in early-to-mid 2010.

Apparently those negotiations bore fruit, because the professional home wrecker has signed a deal to get naked for Playboy in June! There's just one catch.

Tiger's #1 mistress has already struck an agreement, however she retains the right to pull out (har har) any time before the shoot, which is in three weeks.

Rachel also won't bare all - just the backside ... and the topside. So no full frontal Rachel Uchitel action for you. Just Tiger Woods ... and David Boreanaz.

We know one guy who's gonna buy this issue.

No word on when the spread will run, but this woman is something else, having lambasted Joslyn James for trying to cash in on her Tiger Woods affair fame.

You cashed in, too, Rache - Tiger just paid it all up front in your case.

You hardly seem averse from publicity and opportunities you're allow to pursue, either. Which is all good, just don't pretend you're not a fame whore too.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., surprised many by winning the Miss USA 2010 pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday.

She strutted in an orange and gold bikini, wore a strapless white gown that resembled a wedding dress and said health insurance should cover birth control.

How'd she feel about winning the title? "Ask me after I've had a pizza."

The Queens, N.Y. native of Lebanese descent told pageant organizers her family celebrates both Muslim and Christian faiths. She moved to Michigan in 2003.

Rima Fakih is believed to be the first Muslim-American Miss USA and the second Arab-American to be crowned Miss USA since it began way back in 1952.

Rima Fakih takes over the Miss USA title.

The stunner told reporters she sold her car after graduating from University of Michigan-Dearborn to pay for her run in the Miss Michigan USA pageant.

She said she believed she had the title on Sunday after glancing at pageant owner Donald Trump as she awaited the results with the first runner-up.

"That's the same look he gives them when he says, 'You're hired' on The Apprentice," she said. "She's a great girl," said Trump, who owns the pageant.

Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard was the first runner-up.

During the interview portion, which famously derailed Carrie Prejean last year, Fakih was asked if birth control should be paid for by health insurance.

Controversial question. She replied yes, saying “I believe that birth control is just like every other medication even though it’s a controlled substance.”

After winning, Fakih replaces Miss USA 2009 Kristen Dalton, and will represent the United States this summer in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant.

Michael Jackson's children have remained largely out of the spotlight since the music icon's death, making these newly-discovered videos all the more surprising.

A series of home videos showing eight-year-old Prince Michael Jackson II (a.k.a. Blanket) dancing, singing and reciting movie quotes have surfaced on YouTube.

He is very cute and full of energy.

In this clip, Blanket can be seen bouncin' around and singing with cousin Donte (one of Jermaine Jackson's sons ... not the one who tried to taser Blanket) ...

It's unclear who leaked these videos and why, but they provide a rare glimpse into the daily life of MJ's youngest son, who's always been shrouded in mystery.

Follow the jump for two more videos of Blanket, known for being the shyest of Michael's kids, revealing his extroverted side and reenacting a from Star Wars.

Blanket also likes to pretend he's Vincent van Gogh, and makes references to Mike Wazowski, presumably a reference to the creature from Monsters, Inc.:

Juan-Carlos Cruz was the Food Network's Calorie Commando. More recently, he allegedly hatched a plot to recruit homeless guys as commandos to kill his wife.

Santa Monica, Calif., police say Cruz was arrested and booked on suspicion of solicitation to commit murder. Cruz is currently being held on $5 million bail.

The homeless men say they were instructed to "cut [a] woman's throat."

According to one of the men, Little Dave, Cruz said he wanted someone to do "dirty deeds done dirt cheap." He says Cruz told him he'd give him "a grand."

Cruz then gave Little Dave a box which contained a box cutter, a disposable cell phone, gloves, a pocket watch and half of 10 $100 bills. Yup, torn in half.

Juan-Carlos Cruz: Calorie Commando. Really bad henchman.

Juan-Carlos promised to give him the other halves when the job was done, and Little Dave says Cruz showed him a picture of the other half of the money.

Little Dave says he then told his friend Shane, who called Cruz on the phone and discussed the plan. They got a third dude, named Big Dave, involved too.

Big Dave contacted Cruz, who met all three homeless men in Santa Monica. Cruz went over the plan, showed Big Dave a picture of the alleged female target.

The target was later identified as Cruz's wife.

Or would the next Lady Gaga be more accurate?

At his school's talent show this week, then-unknown Greyson Chance took to the piano and performed an amazing, dead-on rendition of Gaga's hit "Paparazzi."

Age: 12. Number of YouTube views: 14,669,491.

So who is this new 'tween phenom with a story – and haircut – to rival that of Justin Bieber? For one, he's an Edmond, Okla., resident, songwriter and pianist.

On Thursday, Greyson Chance told Ellen DeGeneres that he's "never taken a voice lesson," though you wouldn't know it. Kid sure has an innate feel for music.

Despite the immediate, and obvious comparisons to Justin Bieber, he cites Gaga as his main influence: "She's probably my number one inspiration," he said.

So moving was his "Paparazzi" cover that Lady Gaga herself called into the Ellen show to congratulate him. "Be focused," she said, and "stay away from girls."

Calling the singer "Miss Gaga" as he blushed, Chance may not have a choice in that regard. Here's his YouTube sensation rendition of the star's #1 song ...
