CYRUS STILL SICK, STILL SITTING IN HOSPITAL
Pop singer Miley Cyrus continues to recover from a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics she was given last week to combat a sore throat, and it appears she’s getting sick of being poked and prodded while staying in a hospital. On Friday, she tweeted: “Sick of waking up to needles.” There’s still no word when Cyrus will return to her Bangerz Tour after having to cancel four concerts last week and over the weekend, including a planned hometown performance in Nashville.
ONE DIRECTION DELIVERS SPECIAL EFFECTS-FILLED “YOU & I” VIDEO
British boy band One Direction traveled to a seaside pier to film the video for its latest sentimental single “You & I.” In the clip that was released on Friday, the five band members take turns singing verse and chorus lines as they morph into one another while taking a long walk on (luckily) a long pier while (happily) coming back towards the shore. The stars of the relatively simple video are the special effects used to have the five fellas morph into each other.
LADY GAGA GETS WISDOM TEETH YANKED
Getting ones wisdom teeth pulled ahead of heading out on a major tour is not standard practice, but then again if you’re Lady Gaga, nothing is standard practice. The singer had her wisdom teeth removed last week, and shared the experience with fans via Twitter, writing: “Wisdom teeth out. P-p-Percocet p-p-Percocet. Chipmunk cheeks… Wisdom teeth out before tour. I can’t eat. I’m gonna put some meatballs in a blender.”
GWEN STEFANI JOINING THE VOICE
Gwen Stefani is reportedly in talks to join NBC’s The Voice. According to reports, Stefani will join the show in season seven, taking over for Christina Aguilera, who is currently pregnant with her second child. Shooting on season seven, which will also see Pharrell Williams replacing Cee-Lo Green, begins in the June.
NPH DENIES CURSING OUT THEATERGOER
How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris is denying he cursed out a fan during his Broadway performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch over the weekend. At one point during the show, a female theatergoer screamed out “I Love You Neil,” according to the New York Post, which then claimed he responded by saying, “I’m doing something up here mother f****r.” But in truth, Harris said a lot more than that and the whole thing became part of his improvised performance. At first the actor started asking, “who’s Neil? I’m not Neil,” before he made the R-rated comment. "It was all done in good fun and fully in the context of the show," a rep for Harris told Gossip Cop. "The audience went crazy, and it really was a light-hearted moment."
SEACREST NOT OUT
Sounds like reports Ryan Seacrest was ready to leave American Idol may be premature. Last week Radaronline claimed Seacrest was going to ditch Fox’s former hit once his contract expired this year, but on Friday sources insisted Seacrest was close to signing a new deal that would keep him on Idol for two more years. Radar also reported that Seacrest wanted out of red carpet duty for E! and that seems to be true. Insiders say he’s made it clear to execs that he no longer wants to do red carpet interviews.
LOHAN TALKS MISCONCEPTIONS
Lindsay Lohan was a guest host on The View Friday, where she talked about her decision to be open about her struggles with alcohol. "I think it's important to be open and share that with people. Especially with me because people have so many misconceptions about knowing a person directly,” she said. When asked what was the biggest misconception about her she laughed and replied, "I don't even know where to start."
Last week it was announced that Paul Walker’s brothers would be stepping in for the late actor to help finish some of Paul’s Fast & Furious 7 action scenes. But TMZ reports that Caleb and Cody Walker will be doing more than that. According to the site, both brothers sound like Paul, so producers plan to use their voices to help fill in some gaps in the dialogue.

Deport Bieber: The White House has finally released a statement about the 'Deport Justin Bieber' petition.
According to Entertainmentwise it reads: "Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one. The We the People terms of participation state that, ‘to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition. So we'll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows."
