Odds and ends for November 12
Cyrus smokes a joint at MTV EMAs
AMSTERDAM (AP) — She couldn’t resist. Singer Miley Cyrus smoked a joint on stage and twerked with a dwarf during the MTV EMAs on Sunday.
The 20-year old pop star also took home the Best Video award for her hit song “Wrecking Ball” during a show with a strong lineup of other performers including Eminem and Katy Perry.
Cyrus opened the space-themed show singing the song “We Can’t Stop,” while wearing a silver spandex suit and gyrating her buttocks in the move known as twerking in the general direction of her smaller female dance partner.
To the delight of the crowd in Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome, Cyrus finished the number by sticking out her tongue, the same expression she flashed repeatedly during her eyebrow-raising appearance at MTV’s Video Music Awards in New York in August.
After winning the top award at the end of the show, she celebrated by demonstratively lighting up a large spliff and quickly taking a puff.
Lennon’s detention sheets will be sold
LONDON (AP) — John Lennon apparently wasn’t an advocate of peace and love in high school.
A pair of the late Beatle’s detention sheets show him being punished for “fighting in class,” ‘’shoving” and being a general nuisance.
The sheets from Quarry Bank High School for Boys in Liverpool are to be sold online by TracksAuction.com later this month. One of the sheets says Lennon showed “just no interest whatsoever” in school.
The company said Monday that the detention sheets date from 1955 and 1956. Despite his poor school record, Lennon went on to co-write some of the most memorable pop songs in music history.
