Good golly, Ms. Miley: What is wrong with you? Miley Cyrus has been forced to postpone the first two European dates of her Bangerz concert tour while she continues to recover from ongoing respiratory problems. The 21-year-old singer was discharged from a hospital last Thursday following ten days recovering from a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. A statement from her handlers late Wednesday said that dates original scheduled for Amsterdam and Antwerp this week will be rescheduled for June 20 and 22. From the statement: “After a period of improvement, Cyrus’ symptoms have returned and doctors will not permit her to travel.” Cyrus followed the release with a tweet consisting of dozens of tiny crying faces. Her management company says the singer still intends to perform at London’s O2 Arena on May 6.

KISS AND TELL
James Franco says his name doesn’t belong on Lindsay Lohan’s infamous bedmate list. During his appearance this week on Howard Stern’s Sirius radio broadcast, the 36-year-old actor attempted to distance himself from the problematic tabloid figure. Last month, Lohan admitted on her OWN reality series Lindsay that she herself penned the list of three-dozen men, including several celebrities, with whom she had physical relations. Franco’s name was on the list. “I will swear on anything you ask that I have never had sex with Lindsay Lohan,” said Franco. “I will swear on my mother’s life.” When pressed on the matter by Stern, Franco allowed, “Alright, maybe we kissed. It was lame. I can’t believe she put me on that private list!”

The first two Sharknado movies starring B-listers Ian Ziering and Tara Reid earned record ratings for SyFy and aired on the Space channel here in Canada. And since the first two films were set in Los Angeles and New York, all signs point to the third one taking place in Florida.
