Miley Cyrus just wants to live her life. The singer says she wants parents to take more responsibility for parenting their own children and not put so much pressure on her to be a role model.

“My job isn’t to tell your kids how to act or how not to act because I’m still figuring that out for myself,” the 17-year old pop star says in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

The singer says she shouldn’t be criticized for the typical teenage behavior she displays, like posting explicit pictures to her MySpace page or performing a pole dance during a performance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards (OK, so most teenagers probably haven't gone there). FULL POST

Drastic hair changes and bad breakups go hand in hand, but while most women go for a dramatic haircut, Kate Gosselin has found comfort in a head full of hair extensions, courtesy of celebrity stylist Ted Gibson.

The new hair is just the latest sign that the old Kate - whose blonde locks were constantly ridiculed in tabloids - is gone, and a new Kate has taken her place.

“It’s good to have hair again,” she told People magazine for their upcoming issue. “I never thought I’d have short hair for as long as I did. I feel like this is a fresh start, a fresh me, a fresh life.”

Adult Swim: Lil Wayne not playing Jesus Christ

Contrary to reports that rapper Lil Wayne will be lending his voice to the son of God, a spokesperson for Adult Swim says that the rapper's character in a one-hour cartoon special with the working title “Return of Freaknik” is not Jesus Christ per se, but just a guy named Jesus.

The cartoon, which is being produced by fellow music maker T-Pain, is about a group of up-and-coming rappers who travel to Atlanta for a battle of the bands contest. (Freaknik was a 1990s gathering of students from historically black colleges, first in Atlanta, later in Florida.)

Lil Wayne, who is scheduled to be sentenced to prison in New York on February 9 as a result of gun charges, was brought into the Adult Swim mix by T-Pain, who has worked with Nick Weidenfeld, the head of program development for the network, in the past. (Adult Swim, like CNN, is part of Time Warner.)

And it looks like it still has room to grow.

There's only one semi-sexy scene in James Cameron's blockbuster "Avatar," but what couldn't be shown in theaters you'll be able to watch in the privacy of your own home.

Cameron admitted in a recent group interview that "Avatar" did have a sex scene between Zoe Saldana's Neytiri, a Na’vi, and the avatar of Sam Worthington's character, Jake Sully, but he cut it out in favor of a PG-13 rating.

"That [scene] will be something for the special edition DVD, if you want to see how they have sex," Cameron said.

(If you haven't seen the movie and absolutely detest spoilers, stop reading now.)
