On March 29 Miley Cyrus
did something she swore she'd never do again: She returned to Twitter.
In 2009, Cyrus put the social networking site behind her, claiming it interfered too much in her private life, and shut it down for good and has been Twitter-less since then -- until now. Most recently, Cyrus tested the waters and tweeted
via her producer Rock Mafia's page two weeks ago. "This is my new way to connect," she tweeted. "When I need to speak out I will tweet from @Rock_Mafia."
Just four days later, Cyrus opened her own account under the name "gypsyhearttour
." The new page may be a promotional tool for her upcoming Gypsy Heart tour, but Cyrus has already slipped into her old routine tweeting
, "Yo guys! Its MC! Thank you so much for my KCA! PS I am taking over the Gypsy Heart twitter! Gotta keep ya posted on tour ... Lets get me back to as many followers
as before!!!!!! SO EXCITED FOR TOUR I CAN BARELY STAND IT."
has confirmed that Lady Gaga
is the godmother of his son.
In his appearance on 'Saturday Night Live
' this past weekend, the 'Rocket Man' joked about parenthood during the opening monologue, saying he still hasn't "lost the baby weight" and let it slip that Gaga was godmother. John and partner David Furnish recently became parents to son Zachary, who was born this past Christmas.
"For those of you concerned that we are unusual parents, don't worry," said
John. "It's not like we are the only two people involved in the child's life. His godmother is Lady Gaga. That is true. It's not a joke. Lady Gaga is his actual godmother, which is ironic, because I've always said that Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. And Gaga loves Mars. She says Mars has good schools and great discos."
may consider legal action against the producers of her hit single 'Friday
In a letter from their lawyer, Brian Schall, the 13-year-old singer and her mother Georgina Marquez Kelly are accusing the Los Angeles producers, Ark Music Factory, of copyright infringement and unlawful exploitation of her likeness and song on YouTube, iTunes, Amazon and Ark's website, according to a report in Rolling Stone
. Black and her mom also allege that Ark never gave them master copies of the 'Friday' recording and sold an unauthorized ringtone of the song.
Ark has denied everything and said that they've all worked everything out. "I have met with Rebecca Black's mom and everything is fine," said Ark Music founder Patrice Wilson. "She will get the masters and the song. They can have it all."

's mother is concerned for the singer's health and has reportedly joined her daughter on tour.
It seems Cynthia Germanotta, 56, is worried about her daughter's well-being since she collapsed at a show in Indiana last January and nearly fell from exhaustion at a New Zealand concert just two months later. (Gaga recently admitted to living off of a "drunk diet
" of drinking at night and working out, hung over, by day.) Mrs. Germanotta, who was seen on the singer's bus at her recent San Diego show, may join Gaga on the remainder of the tour to make sure that she eats well and doesn't drink too much, according to a Sun
"She may be one of the biggest, and strangest, pop stars in the world but her relationship with her parents is very traditional," said a friend of Gaga to the Sun. "She is from a typical loving Italian-American background and her family have normal parental concerns. Her mom thinks she drinks too much and doesn't eat enough. She has gone along to keep an eye on her drinking and feed her up."
will release her new album this coming June.
Her fourth studio album -- and first since 'I Am ... Sasha Fierce' in 2008 -- is already getting some rave reviews from those involved in its production. It seems Beyonce may have a first single ready by the end of this month. Producer Robert 'Shea' Taylor, who has been working on the album for the past several months, calls
one track featuring Kanye West
"amazing" and compares her new sound to Michael Jackson
in his prime.
"It was just amazing," Sony Music Australia chief Denis Handlin told the Daily Telegraph
. "She came in and played us six tracks from the album. The best description I can give is groundbreaking. She's gone to another level."
"I feel like the genre of women today musically is astounding, that we can do that. I feel like we actually need to come together and do a song that can actually show how much power we do have. That would be fun. A song together like that would be fun."

tells Britain's Captial FM
that she would love to record a "girl power" anthem with Rihanna
and Lady Gaga
"I don't lip-sync. I would rather someone say I sang like crap than have people see me lip-sync. It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn't just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour."
