  • Miley Cyrus Nude In Bathtub: Photo Reportedly For Liam Hemsworth

    Miley Cyrus reportedly took some steamy photos for her beau, Liam Hemsworth, and now they are making the rounds online.

    A photo of Cyrus naked in a bathtub covering her breasts -- showing off her signature sideboob look and her dreamcatcher tattoo -- was taken by friend and photographer Vijat Mohindra. The sexy photo is featured on his website along with several other steamy, but fully-clothed photos.

    The blog Life of the Rich and Famous first posted the photo and claims it was taken in 2011, when Cyrus was just 18. Mohindra and Cyrus are known to be close friends as he actually documented the singer's Gypsy Heart tour in the spring of 2011.

    The photo was allegedly intended to be for Liam's eyes only, but it is now prominently featured on Mohindra's website. Request for comment from the photographer's reps were not immediately returned.

    Regardless of whether or not the photos were meant to be private, it's strange that the photo is reminiscent of Miley's 2008 Vanity Fair cover shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz. The cover photo famously featured Cyrus at the age of 15 wearing nothing but a white sheet.

    Courtney Stodden, Reality Show: Teen Bride Begins Shooting Television Show

    From teen bride to reality TV star: Those of you who feel a morbid curiosity when it comes to Courtney Stodden, the 17-year-old bride of 52-year-old B-list actor Doug Hutchison, can now rejoice. The aspiring actress has finally landed her own reality television show, a goal of the sexed-up, perpetually bikini-clad Stodden ever since saying "I do" to Hutchison one year ago.

    "People are going to be very excited," Stodden's mother and manager Krista Keller told Celebuzz. She also confirmed to the publication that filming would last three weeks at an undisclosed location.

    Stodden also exercised uncharacteristic restraint about the details on Twitter, saying only: "FYI Stoddenista's: Will be m.i.a. for about 3 weeks - packing up & heading out to shoot a reality show! Love you all xxx God Bless, Courtney."

    Stodden and Hutchison married in August 2011, despite a 35-year age difference and the fact that Stodden was just 16 years old. Hutchison is a character actor who has appeared in "The Green Mile" and "Lost"; no word on whether he will have a role in Stodden's reality show.

    President, PM greet nation on Raksha Bandhan

     The President, Vice President and Prime Minister have greeted the nation on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan being celebrated on Thursday.

    President Pranab Mukherjee in his message said, "On the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, I extend my greetings and good wishes to my fellow citizens in India and abroad."

    He said Raksha Bandhan is the celebration of the unique relationship that exists between brothers and sisters and the tying of a Rakhi symbolises love, affection and mutual trust between sisters and brothers.

    "May the spirit of this festival strengthen fraternal feelings in our society, and remind us of the importance of unity and harmony, as we strive collectively for the well- being of our people," he said.

    Vice President Hamid Ansari in his message said, "Rakshabandhan signifies the protective bond between brothers and sisters and the celebration of this festival plays an important role in spreading the message of unity and harmony in our society."

    He called upon people to follow the ideals associated with the festival to promote the spirit of amity, harmony and goodwill.

    In his greetings to the people of the nation, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called for celebrating the joyous occasion to strengthen the bonds of love and affection in family and society.

    "We should use this occasion to promote peace, harmony and brotherhood in our country," he said.

    'The Paperboy' Trailer: Nicole Kidman Does Not Urinate On Zac Efron

    After a fake Taiwanese animation teaser spoof hit the Web in May, the official trailer for Lee Daniels' controversial film "The Paperboy" has finally been released. And we're not going to lie: We really wanted a glimpse of the highly buzzed about scene where Nicole Kidman urinates on Zac Efron after his character gets bit by a jellyfish.

    Alas, perhaps it's best to leave some things to the imagination. (Besides, at least we get to see the two dance around in their underwear!)

    Based on Pete Dexter's 1995 novel, "The Paperboy" follows a reporter (Matthew McConaughey) who investigates the potential wrongful conviction of a Hillary Van Wetter (John Cusack), a sleazy inmate on death row. Efron plays McConaughey's onscreen brother, with Kidman starring as Charlotte, a woman who falls in love with Hillary and is convinced he's innocent of murdering a Florida sheriff.

    While the film represents a turning point in Efron's career, it's Kidman -- and her Southern drawl -- who steals the show in the trailer. Back in May, Kidman told reporters she wasn't really uncomfortable with the film's more personal scenes. "I think I had to step into a place to play the character where I didn't step out of it and look at myself, so it wasn't hard to shoot," she said at Cannes, where the film premiered. Not only did Kidman do her own hair and makeup on set, but she also took the time to pose for a few provocative pictures for the director. Obviously, Kidman was really getting into her character.

    Nathan Adrian Wins Gold Medal In 100-Meter Freestyle By Smallest Of Margins

     Nathan Adrian of the United States won the men's 100-meter freestyle by the smallest of margins at the London Olympics on Wednesday.

    Adrian clocked 47.52 seconds to win by 0.01 ahead of world champion James "The Missile" Magnussen of Australia.

    Magnussen touched in 47.53 to take the silver medal and Brent Hayden of Canada finished in 47.80 for bronze.

    Vogue Model Robyn Lawley's Plus-Size Lingerie Campaign. Total Game Changer

    Robyn Lawley is a size 16 and proud of it. Australian Vogue's first 'plus-size' cover girl has just broken another boundary in the fashion industry as the new face of a U.K. lingerie line for women with curves.

    "I am delighted to be chosen as the face and body of Boux Avenue lingerie," Robyn said in a press statement."The brand is striving to promote a healthy body image and their size range reflects this."

    Demand for more body types in fashion grows

    Notice she didn't use the term 'plus size.' "I'm a normal size. I wish we could all be known as models, rather than 'plus-size,'" she told The Australian in a recent interview.

    At 6'2, the 23-year-old Sydney native spent the early part of her modeling career struggling to be the opposite of "normal" to suit fashion industry standards.

    'I stumbled across pro-anorexia websites and scoured them for tips,' she admitted in a 2011 Fabulous Magazine interview. "I began starving myself and making myself sick after meals."

    Watch: When did size 6 become plus-size?

    But by the time she turned 18, her mindset changed and so did her potential impact on the industry. She signed with a modeling agency for natural body types and in 2011 landed on the cover of French Elle.

    Now part of the growing movement of fashion insiders challenging the industry's unhealthy body expectations, she's embraced her foodie instincts with the blog Robyn Lawley Eats, a collage of recipes, indulgences and firsts ("Trying oysters for the first time properly!") It's everything the pro-anorexia sites are not: the only models on her tumblr are from cooking store displays. In a recent post she wrote: "A simple pan $1000 at Willams-Sonoma...not gonna lie I want it."

    She can probably afford it now. After replacing the campaign's former plus-size model, Ola Jordan, who was six sizes smaller, Robyn is making headlines with her viral photoshoot. Lets be honest, the pictures aren't only popular with female supporters. Dressed in a pink satin and lace bra and skimpy underpants, lounging on a sheepskin rug, normal isn't the first word that comes to mind. Neither is "plus size."

    Former Plus size model: Size 10 model Ola Jordan was the company’s brand ambassador before Robyn (Boux Avenue)And that's just the point. The UK brand's Hidden Allure and After Hours Glamour lines, with sizes ranging from 8 to 20, are far from girdles. These lacy bras, undergarments and animal print slips, aren't about reigning in waistlines but vamping them up. For now the mid-priced line (think $20-$40 range) is only available in the UK, but according the Boux Avenue website they "do their best" to accommodate international requests over email.

    From an industry standpoint, Robyn's campaign is proof that Victoria's Secret skinny Angels aren't the only skimpily clad models with cross-over sex appeal. (Remember when those runway models were considered "normal" because they had muscles?) From a consumer's perspective, it's also a sign of what's to come: lingerie designed for showing off your curves, not hiding them.

    Chick-fil-A Anti-Gay Controversy: Gay Employees Speak Out

    Elected officials have urged Chick-fil-A to stay out of their cities, the Jim Henson Company has severed ties, and gay rights groups are organizing national protests against the fried chicken chain. But at the Chick-fil-A where Andrew works in northern Alabama, business has been booming over the past few weeks.

    On Wednesday -- dubbed "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" by former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee -- lines are stretching out the front door and the parking lot is packed with customers coming out to support company chief executive Dan Cathy, who recently came out against same-sex marriage with statements that have polarized lovers of the fast-food chain.

    Andrew, a gay 24-year-old who has been working at the northern Alabama Chick-fil-A since January, sat in his car smoking a cigarette and watching the crowd during a break earlier Wednesday.

    "I call it hater appreciation day," said Andrew, who asked that his last name be withheld out of fear he'd be fired. "It's very, very depressing."

    Chick-fil-A has long come under fire from activists for giving millions to groups that advocate against gay rights and even support ex-gay therapy, but the fire has ratcheted up in recent weeks, following interviews in which Cathy said he was “guilty as charged” of supporting “the biblical definition of the family unit" and that gay marriage invites "God's judgment on our nation."

    Now, Chick-fil-A sits at the center of furious debate over same-sex marriage, gay rights and free speech, with politicians, activists, and newspaper editorial boards weighing in from all sides.

    The company has remained mostly silent on the issue. On the company's Facebook page, a post declares, "The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender." (On the page, the company also maintains that it severed ties with the Jim Henson Company, first). The company did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Huffington Post, and Dan Cathy has not given any subsequent interviews since the controversy began.

    Another group staying mostly silent on the issue are the gay, lesbian and bisexual employees who staff the restaurants. They say that, like most employees of the company, they aren't allowed to speak to the press.

    For these employees, the last couple of weeks have been very difficult.

    One gay employee who works at Chick-fil-A headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., and asked to remain anonymous for fear of losing his job, says he is getting it from both sides. On the one hand, there is the customer who came in and said he supported Dan Cathy and then "continues to say something truly homophobic, e.g. 'I'm so glad you don't support the queers, I can eat in peace,'" the employee, who is 23 and has worked for Chick-fil-A since he was 16, wrote in an email. On the other hand, he continued, "I was yelled at for being a god loving, conservative, homophobic Christian while walking some food out to a guest in a mall dining room."

    He disagrees with Cathy's views, but the reaction from the public has been just as hard to swallow.

    "It seems like very few people have stopped to think about who actually works for Chick-fil-A and what those people's opinions are," he wrote. "They are putting us in a pot and coming to support us or hate us based on something they heard and assume we agree with."

    8 badminton players thrown out of Olympics for trying to lose

    Eight female badminton players were thrown out of the Olympics on Wednesday for trying to lose matches the day before, the Badminton World Federation announced after a disciplinary hearing.

    "After a hearing this morning before the BWF’s Disciplinary Committee the following pairs were disqualified: Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang (China); Greysia Polii and Meiliana Jauhari (Indonesia); Jung Kyung Eun and Kim Ha Na (Korea); and Ha Jung Eun and Kim Min Jung (Korea)," read a statement from the Badminton World Federation.

    The players from China, South Korea and Indonesia were accused of playing to lose to face easier opponents in future matches.

    The Indonesian and South Korean pairs appealed the decision, the BWF said, and a decision on their appeals is expected later on Wednesday.

    The eight players concerned had all already qualified for the quarterfinals of the tournament before the final matches of the group stage on Tuesday night.

    But the results of the last group matches mean the Chinese pair, Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang - ranked No. 1 in the world - avoid potentially facing another top Chinese duo until the final on Saturday.

    The two lackluster contests in London angered the watching crowds.

    British sports fans going into the Olympic Park on Wednesday called it "shocking" after seeing parts of the matches on television.

    "It's not in the spirit of the thing," said Kevin Button, from Ashford in Kent, just outside of London.

    "And it's so disappointing for the people who came to see it," his wife Tina said. "It leaves a bit of a sour taste."

    Katy Perry Bikini: Singer Flaunts Her Curves In Strapless Bikini In Miami

    Katy Perry has been enjoying her Miami vacation poolside and flaunting her killer curves.

    On Thursday, she spent the afternoon working on her tan with her sister Angela, and rocked a simple, but sexy black bikini, while reading up on Robert Pattinson in the latest issue of BlackBook magazine. On Friday, Perry was back having more fun in the sun, this time making a splash in a teeny, strapless, yellow tie-dye bikini.

    Perry and her pals soaked up the sun before jetting off to Rio de Janeiro, where she was promoting her movie "Katy Perry: Part Of Me 3D."

    The 27-year-old singer showed off her impressive cleavage in an inventive manner. The star showed up wearing a high-necked yellow minidress with strategically placed diamond cutouts going down the center of her torso. The dress showed off some major sideboob, just not the side we're used to seeing.

    'Wizard Of Oz' & Pink Floyd Mash-Up Arrives On Internet: 'Dark Side Of The Rainbow

    Remember in high school when you and your friends spent that Saturday night trying to sync up "The Wizard of Oz" with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon? (Press play on the third MGM lion roar, man!) Well, now someone has gone ahead and put the two together on YouTube.

    First posted by YouTube user Hisashibeta on April 18, and recently unearthed by the website I Heart Chaos, the clip -- entitled "Dark Side of the Rainbow" -- brings the denizens of Oz together with Pink Floyd. (If you've never seen this and have 101 minutes to kill, watching is highly recommended.)

    Of course, the combination is nothing but a coincidence, despite what you may believe.

    "It was an American radio guy who pointed it out to me," Alan Parsons, the Dark Side of the Moon audio engineer, told Rolling Stone. "It's such a non-starter, a complete load of eyewash. I tried it for the first time about two years ago. One of my fiancée's kids had a copy of the video, and I thought I had to see what it was all about. I was very disappointed. The only thing I noticed was that the line "balanced on the biggest wave" came up when Dorothy was kind of tightrope walking along a fence. One of the things any audio professional will tell you is that the scope for the drift between the video and the record is enormous; it could be anything up to twenty seconds by the time the record's finished. And anyway, if you play any record with the sound turned down on the TV, you will find things that work."
