‘the Sociology Of Miley Cyrus’ And Other Useless College Courses

A Miley Cyrus college course is in the works

Dateline NBC 2014

Weve all heard the phrase Mickey Mouse degree, used to describe a useless higher education degree. Well, now you can actually take a Mickey Mouse Degree! Sort of. Skidmore College in New York is offering a course called The Sociology of Miley Cyrus, which gives students the opportunity to explore the journey of the Hannah Montana star, beginning with her days on the Disney show and culminating with whatever the hell she is these days. Attendees of Skidmore College can study ‘The Sociology of Miley Cyrus’ Theres a slightly more academic edge to the course than just flicking through pictures of Mileys transformation, students are invited to evaluate the notions of identity, media, entertainment and fame. Miley is just the hyperactive, peroxide lens through which they do this. If you think studying Miley Cyrus at college sounds pretty stupid, these other courses will totally blow your mind. Columbia College offers the opportunity to study Zombies in Popular Media, allowing students to study representations and their significance of zombies throughout history. Using critical theory and source material (including comics if you doubted the credibility of the module) students reflect and comment on the zombie figure. Sounds dead silly to us. Lucky Tupac fans at the University of Washington can sign up to study The Textual Appeal of Tupac Shakur, a module which relates the writings of Tupac to various literature. We imagine future conversations to go like this: “Who did you read at university?” “Oh you know, Jane Austin, Maya Angelou, Tupac Shakur” “Say what?”. If youve managed to get into a university youre probably more than capable of watching television without running into too much difficulty, although Montclair university offers support for those that do. How To Watch Television is a module on offer at the college, and educates students in analyzing television and the extent it should be, and needs to be, understood by its audience. Students are encouraged to assess the impact that television has on their lives. Between 18 years old and 21, the ages most people go on to higher education, its probably going to be quite a lot.
‘The Sociology Of Miley Cyrus’ And Other Useless College Courses

The Hollywood Reporter reported on March 28, 2014 that a Cyrus college course will be offered in New York. It has been reported by the Saratogian newspaper that Skidmore College, which is a private liberal arts college in Saratoga Springs, is planning to offer a summer course called “The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media.” More Photos View all 5 photos Visiting assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff has said, “You can study a lot of things based on Miley. She represents how transient wealth and fame can be, and shows how possible it is to change your image.” Chernoff first got the idea for this course when she was teaching a class on youth culture. At that time she screened a video of Cyrus’ twerking spectacle at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The students gave a positive reaction to this which turned into a lecture at the college’s Women’s Center, and now the summer course. MTV reports Cyrus is now being called “a great case study”. Cyrus will be the primariy topic of a sociology class at Skidmore College this summer. Chernoff sees her life as a great lens through which to examine race, class, gender and media. Chernoff plans to discuss what it means to be an appropriate rebel female media figure. This sounds like a really fun course and is likely to be even more fascinating if Cyrus shows up for some guest lectures. Perhaps she could than be offered an honorary PhD in pop culture.

(Pierre Suu / Getty Images /March 2, 2014) By Booth Moore, Los Angeles Times Fashion Critic March 11, 2014, 3:00 p.m. PARIS This month, Rihanna appears on the cover of Vogue for a third time, with a story inside in which designers wax poetic about the pop star’s style. Emilio Pucci designer Peter Dundas is quoted saying, “She’s an amplified version of what a lot of girls want to look like, but she’s always a step ahead of the game.” That was certainly true at Paris Fashion Week , where she was a regular in the front row, always dressed to the nines, or even tens, in something that put a fresh spin on whatever designer’s collection she was there to see. Also PHOTOS: Celebrities at Paris Fashion Week At Chanel , she rocked sneakers from the January Chanel haute couture collection and managed to make a ladylike suit look edgy with a belt bag. At Dior, she worked a sexy French maid look in a red fur coat and black negligee-style dress with stockings and garters, bringing some sex appeal to a show that hasn’t had much under designer Raf Simons. At Givenchy , she chose a baggy pants suit by designer Riccardo Tisci that hinted at the baggy trousers trend coming around for next season. She was ahead of the game at Lanvin , too, in soft jogging pants, a sculpted charcoal blazer, fur scarf, fedora and lace-up shoes that matched designer Alber Elbaz’s new streetwise attitude for fall. For Balmain , where Rihanna fronts the spring 2014 ad campaign, she looked ready for battle in an army green pencil skirt, flak jacket and coat. Also on display? Her not-so-secret weapon: a heady dose of cleavage.

Kate Middleton Vs. Cressida Bonas: See How The Duchess And Potential Princess Compare!

Kate Middleton Has Hired a “Spanish Supernanny”

M Neilson/Getty Images; MK/Splash News Meet-Cute With a Prince: Kate got Prince William’s attention in a 2002 St. Andrews University fashion show, modeling in a revealing ensemble to benefit charity. Cressy, however, was introduced to Harry by BFF Princess Eugenie. Clearly, both left lasting impressions on the Windsor boys. PHOTOS: Prince William vs. Prince Harry, who’s hotter?! Bradley Page- WPA Pool/Getty Images; FAMEFLYNET PICTURES Fashion Face-Off: Kate’s sense of style is polished and timeless, and it’s becoming increasingly timeless since she married into the royal family. Cress, who has been dubbed the anti-Kate in certain circles, is known for her eclectic wardrobe, but she’s always dressed classily and tastefully, too. She’s yet to tackle a black-tie royal function, so we’ve mostly seen her casual ensembles (scrunchies, FTW). She appears to be a bigger fan of bright colors and taking risks than the duchess, but she always pulls her looks together in that boho-princess kinda way. Both Kate and Cressy are happy to recycle their clothes, and brunette vs. blond debates aside, these women have incredible hair!

Kate Middleton, Cressida Bonas

Kate and William have hired a nanny for Prince George. While the name of this lucky woman (who now has a better chance of pretty much anyone else on the planet of getting to, like, watch The Bachelor with Kate, or borrow Kate’s jewelry for “wacky” selfies) is still not known, we do now have more details. She’s Spanish (and has been dubbed a “Spanish supernanny” by the British press), she’s in her mid-30s, and she has more than 20 years of experience. SEE MORE: Kate Middleton Hates the $1 Million Renovation to Her Home Ms. Supernanny has “worked for other prominent high-society families” for two decades, and that is how Kate and William became aware of her. It is believed that she will not begin her tenure until Kate and William return from their (somewhat controversial) Maldives vacation, as Prince George is currently being looked after by Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton. SEE MORE: The All-Time Greatest Movies About Love According to the Daily Mail, the nanny “is not married and doesn’t have a boyfriend as her life is totally dedicated to the family she is working with,” and she is “known for being totally professional-married to the job.” This is as textbook as romantic-comedy setups get. If they don’t get a movie into production by the end of the year with Paz Vega as the nanny (Jude Law as Prince William and, obviously, Meryl Streep as Kate), we will be severely disappointed. Imagine the tagline possibilities: – She was taking care of Prince George, but who was taking care of her? – She may have been a supernanny, but would she ever find her superman(. . . ny)?

Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez Reunite In Texas

Justin and Selena again spark reunion rumors as they are spotted together in Texas

The media speculated the these two were at each other’s throats, or at least Selena was because of Justin’s past infidelities that also seemed to include Miley Cyrus at some point; yet, here they are, grabbing a cup of coffee together from Starbucks. TMZ has the photo of the pop singers together, and although Selena is wearing a hoodie and trying to conceal her identity, the website claims that they spent the day together, having a good time. Just yesterday it was reported that Justin flew off the handle when a lawyer got a little bit too nosy when it came to his relationship with Selena during a deposition for an assault case hearing, proving it was a touchy subject. Earlier in the week, it was again Justin who sparked reunion rumors when he posted a photo of Gomez, all dressed up for some event, which he captioned the most beautiful princess. Since there was no official reply from Gomez, people naturally assumed that she was brushing the compliment off and had no intention of reconciling with the Canadian crooner. Yet here they are, walking around town, with friends and bodyguards in tow as excited passersby recognized them and tried to snap photos. They were reportedly even spotted hugging in a floral shop and talked about flowers before they headed to a perfume shop. You may ask yourself what Justin and Selena are doing all the way in Texas. The answer to that question can be found out when consulting Selena’s concert schedule. A closer look indicates that she is scheduled to perform on Saturday, March 8 in Hidalgo, Texas, which is exactly where they were spotted. At the moment, from the evidence presented, it looks like Justin flew out to Texas all the way from Miami where he was present in court yesterday and also trying to butter up his ex by buying her flowers and perfume. That’s always a good way to get to a woman’s heart. Another way is by not cheating on her. Though about a month late with the whole Valentine’s Day routine, Justin seems to be pushing the right buttons at the moment as Selena appears to be enjoying herself. She posted a photo from their reported Starbucks run on her Instagram, which shows her pensively looking at her plastic cup of coffee, while dressed in all black leather and with a pair of retro sunglasses.

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Reunite In Texas Following Oscars Instagram Photo

After multiple reports of the entertainers reuniting and breaking things off following a two year relationship, E! News is reporting that the pair went to breakfast together in McAllen, Texas. The pair also reportedly got cozy at a flower shop and browsed Perfumeria La Versailles, according to E!. The news comes days after Bieber the 20-year-old singer who recently celebrated his birthday, took to his Instagram account to post an image of Gomez from the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. “Most elegant princess in the world,” Bieber wrote. Although Gomez has yet to respond publicly to Bieber’s Instagram post, the 21-year-old singer spoke about matters of the heart in the March issue of Seventeen magazine. Gomez revealed that she and singer Katy Perry, 29, have spoken about the matters of love, with the latter giving her some insight on the matter. “I actually talked to [her] about guys who are intimidated by strong girls,” she told Seventeen. “I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it.” Like us on Facebook While it is unclear whether Gomez took part in the interview before rumors sparked about her reconciliation with her off-and-on again boyfriend and singer Justin Bieber, the pair have made headlines this year. Gomez and Bieber were spotted with the latter’s father Jeremy Bieber and some bodyguards on an RV near a beach in Santa Cruz, Calif. earlier this year, according to TMZ. While the publication reported that the pair were on the Santa Cruz campgrounds in singer Chris Brown’s RV where they jumped on trampolines and rode on segways, Bieber has been pictured spending time with other women since then.

Taylor Swift Obtains Temporary Restraining Order Against Man Claiming To Be Her Husband

Taylor Swift

3, 2014 6:50 PM PST Loading… TrickyD/FAMEFLYNET PICTURES Taylor Swift is currently not dating anyone and she’s definitely not married to anyone, either. The guitar-strumming songbird obtained a temporary restraining order today against a man who claims to be her husband, E! News has learned. Swift got the TRO against 33-year-old Timothy Sweet, who is ordered to refrain from making any contact with the star until March 25, when a court hearing will take place to decide whether to extend the order. According to the Red singer’s request filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sweet, a 6-foot, 200-pound man, has been harassing her and claiming to be her husband through repeated phone messages, letters and social media. She also asked the court to order that Sweet stay away from her mother, father and brother. The judge granted that request. Sweet is prohibited from contacting Swift through any electronic means, including social media websites. The celeb stated that Sweet’s conduct is “seriously alarming and harassing and are extremely distressing to me and my family” and said that she does “not have desire to interact with or communicate in any way with Mr Sweet.” CTRL-C or CMD-C, then press Enter.

Taylor Swift Gets Restraining Order; Selena Gomez in Justin Bieber’s Instagram

She makes people smile and laugh with her music and her personality, in addition to her general awesomeness. Unless, of course, you are Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery. Then, T. Swizzle makes you cry, but in the best possible way. The actress took her godchildren to see Swift perform. They got to meet the Swizz and were so happy to do so. As a result, Dockery, 32, got emotional watching them interact with the superstar/singer/songwriter/country crossover queen. Aw!!! When asked about the last time she cried, the actress replied , The last time I cried? My godchildren went to see Taylor Swift in concert and got to meet her. They literally ran toward her and hugged her, and it was amazing. I got big bonus points for it. Ill remind them when theyre teenagers. Taylor Swift family unifier!

Jennifer Lawrence And The History Of Cool Girls

Who Will Fall at This Year’s Academy Awards? Here Are the Betting Odds on Jennifer Lawrence and Other Oscar Attendees

Amy Adams, BAFTA Film Awards 2014

Or maybe it was the ease with which she regaled Conan OBrien with a tale of butt plugs, or the Vine of her spilling mints in the middle of press conference? My personal moment happened backstage at the Oscars, when, with the help of a mildly lecherous Jack Nicholson, she turned the normally banal post-win interview into a master class in charm. He sneaks up on her, she freaks and fangirls out, they do some weird flirting, and when Nicholson leaves, Lawrence just loses it: OH MY GOD, she gasps, her face in her hands. And there it was, my moment: I loved her. I had admired her acting years before, in Winters Bone, but this was something different. From that point forward, I was powerless before her charm. But what made that exact moment and others like it so effective? Stars are charming all the time. Anne Hathaway, who also won an Oscar that night for Best Supporting Actress, is a veritable charm machine. But thats just it: Hathaway seems like a very talented, very well-programmed machine, while Lawrence seems like a weird, idiosyncratic, charismatic human. Shes never polished; shes always fucking up.

Jennifer Lawrence too hot? What Oscar suspense?

Lawrence, a supporting actress nominee for her role in "American Hustle,"  gleamed on the Screen Actors Guild  Awards red carpet wearing a Dior column dress with multicolored sequins.

Both supporting actress Lawrence and lead actress Adams are Oscar nominees Sunday. Lawrence may supply the most suspense, because despite reports of close races, earlier awards suggest heavy favorites in top categories. An Oscar telecast low on suspense won’t help host Ellen DeGeneres or her producers. (The show starts at 8:30 p.m. Sunday on ABC.) Surprises bolster live television, but victories are almost certain for lead actor Matthew McConaughey and supporting actor Jared Leto of “Dallas Buyers Club.” Ditto lead actress Cate Blanchett of “Blue Jasmine.” Pictures: Orlando Craft Beer Festival Despite reports of a tight best-picture race, “12 Years a Slave” seems destined to win because Oscar voters usually pick the most serious movie. The slavery drama is more devastating than the technological wonders of “Gravity” or the free-wheeling comedy of “American Hustle.” “Gravity” director Alfonso Cuaron is likely to reach the podium, and his film will clean up in technical categories. “Frozen” is a shoo-in as animated feature, and its song “Let It Go” is a lock as well. Even Bono, a fellow nominee in the song category, acknowledges that. So that leaves supporting actress as the most competitive category. Either Lawrence or Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) will collect the statuette. Nyong’o was excellent in her film and has emerged as a red-carpet favorite for her fashion savvy. But Lawrence had the showier role, and Oscar voters gravitate to the biggest performances. Watching the stars may provide the most entertainment, and they will range from Sidney Poitier, Kim Novak and Harrison Ford to Will Smith , Charlize Theron and Brad Pitt . You’ll also see Bill Murray , John Travolta , Sally Field , Goldie Hawn , Glenn Close , Whoopi Goldberg , Jim Carrey , Bradley Cooper , Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence.

Which increases Anne’s odds. But she appears so…steadfast in her effort to be perfect that she will not fall. She will not allow it. (Devil’s advocate: The sheer will power of the Hathahaters just knocks her over. It’s a toss up.) Jennifer Lawrence: Falling Precedent: She was the aforementioned actress who fell at least year’s Academy Awards while walking up the stairs to the stage. Chances of Falling: Who knows?? It seems unlikely that she would fall two years in a row, but then again, it’s Jennifer Lawrence. Leonardo DiCaprio: Falling Precedent: None on record. Chances of Falling: 1:25. It doesn’t seem like he would be the type to fall, does it? Then again, that sounds likeexactlysomething that would happen to Leonardo DiCaprio. If anything falls, it will be Leo’s face if (or when) he loses Best Actor. Bah-dum ching. Dave Allocca/Startraksphoto.com; Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP; Jason Merritt/Getty Images Angelina Jolie: Falling Precedent: None on record.Chances of Falling: 1:10. Angie has been practicing not falling at Oscar rehearsals, which seems like the easiest way to jinx yourself into falling.
