Miley May Leave Hollywood to Pursue Photography Dreams in the UK

In a new interview, Miley Cyrus revealed that she would love to study photography in London and that she was inspired to do so by none other than Annie Leibovitz. Yes, the Annie who shot little Slutty for that 'scandalous' Vanity Fair spread. “I do want to come to London to study photography. I hear there are some really great art schools, so I would love to do that. I got to work with an amazing photographer. Leibovitz was amazing and so talented. And that’s what I want to do with my life. I would love to be a photographer. I would love to work with her again,” said the girl formally known as Destiny Hope. Good luck with that!

Black Friday Turns Deadly at a New York Wal-Mart

So savage! Our thoughts go out to the family of Jdimytai Damour, the Wal-Mart employee who was TRAMPLED TO DEATH by early morning shoppers at a New York Wal-Mart. The New York Times reports that at about 4:55 am on Friday, a crowd of more than 2,000 who had come out for holiday deals forced their way into the Valley Stream, NY store. The six or so workers manning the front could not hold the unruly crowd back. Witnesses said the doors shattered and 'the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. and Jdimytai Damour was 'thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him.' The detective in charge of the investigation said the store lacked adequate security. He also went on to call the scene “utter chaos” and said the “crowd was out of control" and that those who ran over the victim could face criminal charges. “I’ve heard other people call this an accident, but it is not. Certainly it was a foreseeable act,” said the detective. A witness told the media that shoppers behaved badly even as the store was being cleared AFTER the death, “When they were saying they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling, ‘I’ve been on line since yesterday morning. They kept shopping.” Unbelievable. How can you not know that you were stepping all over a human?!? We feel so bad for his family.

28 Reasons That ‘Twilight’ the Movie Is Better Than ‘Twilight’ the Book: Reason #28

"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb," Bella says. In the book, you just roll your eyes. In the movie theater, everyone cheers wildly

There's an actual fight scene between Edward and James, instead of Bella just passing out and getting told about it later. Mostly it's just them throwing each other through windows and crap, but in a story that's totally starved for action it's nice that they tried.

The other vampires - Laurent, Victoria, and James - don't just appear out of nowhere on page 375 because Stephenie Meyer belatedly realized something needed to happen. They make appearances throughout the movie, hunting and killing humans, which gives the movie not only little bursts of much-needed action but at least a game attempt at some suspense.

In general, we're just so relieved that the movie did away with most of the 1,000 scenes in which basically this exact thing happens: Bella: Don't go! Edward: I should go, but I can't. Bella: I am happy! Edward: You're an idiot for being happy. Bella: You are still totally gorgeous OMG OMG.

Due to Edward's chastity, at every point in the movie where you're expecting a sex scene, the filmmakers are forced to show long sequences of Edward and Bella lying down and staring soulfully at each other. They're even shot just like sex scenes! It's impossible to explain just how funny this is onscreen.

Bella's new friends in Forks have been given the Catherine Hardwicke treatment: They're cooler, funnier, more multicultural, and way more interesting than they are in the book, where they're mostly there to serve as distractions that Bella ignores on her way to Edward. For instance, Eric -- described in the book as "a gangly boy with skin problems" who's "the overly-helpful chess-club type" -- turns into a hip, attractive Gaysian. And when everyone goes to the beach, they don't just take boring walks to the tide pools; they go surfing!

28 Reasons That ‘Twilight’ the Movie Is Better Than ‘Twilight’ the Book: Reason #1

First of all, the demands of compressing a 500-page book into a two-hour movie mean that most of the boring scenes of Edward brooding about stuff have been cut. In fact, for the entire middle third of the movie, Edward seems happy most of the time, which Robert Pattinson frankly plays a lot better than he does the dark, serious looks.

Marc Jacobs talks...

“I really have a good attitude about tattooing. When I first got one, two years ago, I was like, ‘I’m not going to overthink this or what it means, or what it’s going to be like when I’m 80. I want to get tattooed today, and in five weeks, I’ll get a SpongeBob tattoo.’ Will I regret it someday? I don’t know, but I’m not going to deny myself this pleasure today because of what I don’t know in the future.” - Marc Jacobs tells the new issue of Rolling Stone
