Kelly Osbourne: Miley's not a bad influence

Kelly Osbourne's new BFF and  "So Undercover" co-star Miley Cyrus has been taking a lot of heat recently due to that bong incident, and Osbourne's telling the rumor mill to lay off.

The 26-year-old defends the "Hannah Montana" star on Twitter, writing, "Just read in the rags that apparently my mum thinks Miley is a bad influence on me, it could not be farther from the truth."

In fact, Osbourne adds, "it's the other way around Miley has us all on a health kick. Gym/early nights. They're really scraping the barrel on that one!"

Paramore and B.o.B. rock out for his birthday

After finally meeting at their 2010 VMA rehearsal in September, "Airplanes" hit makers B.o.B. and Paramore's Hayley Williams have been making surprise guest appearances at each other's shows every chance they get.

In late October, Williams shocked B.o.B. fans at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee (her hometown), with their first off camera performance of "Airplanes."  Next it was in Dublin, Ireland where B.o.B. and Williams rocked the O2 arena. Finally, the duo hit up MTV EMA's in Madrid as guest performers (and Williams displayed her white wing pants).

Then, while performing in London this week, Paramore brought B.o.B. on stage during a performance of their hit "Misery Business" to wish him a happy birthday. Williams then conducted the sold-out crowd of 15,000 in singing happy birthday to B.o.B.
