A Middle Tennessee hacker who once bragged of infiltrating Miley Cyrus’ email and Myspace accounts and later claimed to have an “Internet addiction” was sentenced to three years probation by U.S. District Court Judge Aleta A. Trauger today.
Josh Holly, 21, was not charged for hacking Cyrus’ accounts and publishing racy photos he found in them, but federal agents found evidence of other crimes when they interviewed Holly and searched his computer in 2008. Holly pleaded guilty in August to access device fraud for possessing about 200 credit card numbers that didn’t belong to him.
He also pleaded guilty to commercial electronic mail message fraud for hacking Myspace so that visitors to certain celebrities’ profiles would receive spam messages. Holly was paid more than $100,000 in commissions for steering traffic to a website selling cellphone ring tones, according to court testimony.
Miley Cyrus, without bf Liam Hemsworth, partied at Kelly Osbourne’s birthday bash Thursday night at the Little Door restaurant in West Hollywood. The starlet wore a wild animal print shirt, unbuttoned way down past the mark of good taste, and paired it with a bright red maxi skirt, a black leather jacket and black heeled sandals for a rock chic look, reports Daily Mail. Maybe, but the combo came off as strangely disheveled. Nothing quite pulled it all together. Maybe boots, maybe a belt, maybe more buttons on the shirt would have added glam to Miley Cyrus’ look.
Meanwhile, Kelly was there complete with boyfriend Anton Lombard, and the two of them sported semi-matching outfits in black and white. (Has anyone noticed that Anton bears a passing resemblance to Kelly’s father in his younger days?) The party involved an eclectic selection of guests, but Kelly Osbourne tweeted, “Having the best birthday with @Miley Cyrus I’m so happy she came!” Miley, of course, is just 18 and too young to drink, but she did not offer to be anyone’s designated driver. In fact, she had herself chauffeured home. A wise idea, just in case some drinking had taken place. It’s always best to keep it from behind the wheel.
Recently, sources have reported Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have moved in together, and Miley has done a good deal of shopping to outfit a new place, including stocking the kitchen with junk food. Among celebs, onion rings and other such items are a definite indication a man is moving in.
Miley Cyrus is teaming up once again with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to bring awareness to teens and young adults to protect their hearing and encourage other to do the same.
As part of the Listen Carefully campaign it encourages those to ‘not listen loudly, but listen carefully’. The Starkey Hearing Foundation even polled more than 200 of Miley Cyrus’ fans and 87 percent vowed to protect their own hearing and the same percentage saying they would pass on the message to others. A committed supporter of Starkey Hearing Foundation, which strives to change the social consciousness of hearing and hearing health care, Cyrus hosted several questions on her Facebook page as a first step to get her fans to take the Listen Carefully Vow to Act seriously. In addition to those who said they would take action to protect their own hearing by lowering the volume on their MP3 players and iPods, 56 percent of respondents reported having experienced some difficulty hearing their teacher during class.
With social media platforms serving as a popular channel for teens and young adults to communicate with one another, it is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways for individuals to take that first step in their vow to act. The first commitment of the vow to act initiative is to spread the message through these platforms, followed by the commitment to keep the conversation active by sharing tips on ways to prevent hearing loss among family and friends. Miley Cyrus first became involved with Starkey Hearing Foundation when she joined a hearing mission to Haiti earlier this year where she helped distribute hearing aids to those in need.
Somebody better tell Miley Cyrus she needs to keep a special eye on her dad.
Billy Ray Cyrus claims he has spotted not one, but five or 6 UFOs, and has posted a pic on Twitter to prove it.
‘O.K. My first Ufo sighting. Looks like 5 or 6 disk-like shapes hovering. Special moment 4 Dad,’ the singer tweeted.
Yes…very special moment. Very. Special. You are. Billy.
The singer’s photo of the sun setting behind some hills looks like, errr, a sun setting behind some hills to us.
But Billy reckons those little flecks of slightly lighter coloured orange in the background are totally alien aircraft housing thousands of extra-terrestrial beings.
VH1 has brought back their Pop Up videos, in which they share tidbits with their viewers on classic videos. Recently Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” got the treatment. The rare treat shares facts about Miley and her video in little bubbles of the facts in them. You can watch the fun music video at the bottom if you wish to find out info about Miley.
I love videos like these, I even watch them if I don’t care for the songs. I think learning about the facts behind them is the most interesting part of them. This video is full of fun tidbits, and while some Miley fans will likely already know some of this-you may find yourself surprised. I am wondering how Miley feels about this honor? They don’t do that just to any video, so it should be a major boost in her self-confidence from her fans. I am sure that video will get plenty of views on their website and YouTube.
Are you happy that they choose a video by Miley? I think that it is a nice touch for her and maybe it will be the boost she needs. However, it is just re-airing a video with a bit of editing. It is exciting, but not life changing. Maybe she can prove us all wrong and come out with some statement. But she hasn’t really been heard from since her tour this year, so I doubt we will hear from her about this honor.
Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and Adele are set to contribute covers of Bob Dylan songs for a new tribute album.
