"I Think She Lost Her Mind in the Hollywood Madness"

So, this is interesting.

The other night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Miley Cyrus threw on a wig, big glasses and a business suit, and pretended to be a reporter from Australia.

She grabbed a camera crew and went out onto Hollywood Boulevard to interview people about Miley Cyrus.

It's actually pretty funny, and it ends the way you'd sort of expect a Miley Cyrus bit to end.

Give it a look...

Betty White's Next TV Gig

Betty White could well be the hottest actress on TV right now.

She's done all sorts of guest spots on all sorts of shows, and she just wrapped up a six-season run of Hot in Cleveland on TV Land.

Now, she'll be guest starring on Fox's long-running Bones as a squintern.

Don't worry, I had to look it up too.

Squintern is the word Booth (David Boreanaz) uses to describe the people who assist Doctor Brennan (Emily Deschanel) in the lab.

The folks at TV Line report that Betty White will play Dr. Beth Mayer, an accomplished, sharp as a tack squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football — which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, Dr. Mayer is considered the world's most experienced forensic anthropologist..."

You'll have to wait until the end of October for Betty to make her appearance. And no, they won't be renaming the series Old Bones. That would be wrong.

Meanwhile, here's the incredibly sappy promo Fox created for the show's upcoming season...

No More Anchor Babies!

Anchor babies. It's a term that's been tossed around like a hot potato early in this presidential season, especially among the Republican candidates.

It's the way they've been describing children born in this country to illegal immigrants.

Constitutionally, that grants the children automatic US citizenship, providing an "anchor" to which the parents will cling in hopes of being allowed to stay here.

Many Republicans say that has to stop, no matter what the Constitution says.

Finally, the folks at Funny or Die have found a way to explain why that should happen.

And not one moment too early...

Knock Me Over With a Feather

When the Ashley Madison scandal broke, a lot of people looked to Noel Biderman, the company's CEO who co-founded the "cheating" site with his wife, for answers.

In an interview that broke just this past weekend in which he was referred to as the King of Infidelity, he said that he and his wife did not practice the company motto: "Life is short. Have an affair." (The folks at Huffington Post Canada have the interview, and a video about it.)

In a 2013 interview, Amanda Biderman had this to say about what would happen if Noel cheated on her:
"I would be devastated if (Noel) did it to me. But I would not blame a website. Ashley Madison is not creating cheaters. It is servicing a need that is there, that exists. And unfortunately, it exists. It's sad.''

Well, guess whose emails got leaked as part of the data breach and have now been made public?

And guess who's allegedly been having affairs? None other than the CEO himself.

I wonder if Amanda has logged onto DivorceLawyer.com yet...?

The Most Unlikely Duet of All

Taylor Swift sold out five shows in Los Angeles.

Throughout the run, she brought up a bunch of her friends to sing with her, to the delight of all in attendance.

Folks like Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake and Lisa Kudrow.

Yes, Lisa Kudrow.

She joined Taylor on stage to sing "Smelly Cat," a song she sang as Phoebe on Friends.

Not only did Taylor know the song, so did the crowd.

Check it out.

"There's Been an Awakening"

The geekosphere erupted yesterday when the Disney folks released a teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It's all of 15 seconds, and available exclusively on Instagram.

And it doesn't really show anything new, except for a guy holding a blue light saber, going up against the guy with the red Game of Thrones-style broadsword light saber.

Which prompted all sorts of discussions and theories that will keep the Star Warriors busy until the next teaser trailer.

Check it out.

There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

"See a Bus, Don't Move"

Deva Dalparto runs a web and YouTube site called MyLifeSuckers.com, dedicated to the moms of the world.

But you don't have to be a mom, or even a parent, to enjoy the videos and blogs she posts.

Her latest - just in time for Back to School Season - is "Bus, Don't Move," a parody of the 80s hit, "Bust a Move."

It's pretty funny, and it also carries an important safety message to motorists: when you see a school bus, don't move.

"Oh, I WILL Take This on the Plane"

Some people are silly, I guess.

Like this woman who tried to get on board a flight at Beijing Capital International Airport with a $200 bottle of Remy Martin XO Excellence cognac.

When the airport security folks told her she'd have to leave it behind, she did what any logical human would do

She drank the entire bottle.

And got so drunk - fall-down drunk, in fact - that she wasn't allowed to board the fight.

I guess she showed them, huh?

Les Miserables = Less Miserable

You don't have to be a fan of Les Miserables - either the Broadway show or the movie - to appreciate this flash mob.

The West Des Moines School District (in Iowa, of course) was holding its district-wide welcome to school meeting for teachers.

And to put a little zest into the day, some teachers put together a teaching-oriented parody of one of the show's biggest ensemble pieces, "One Day More."

At first, no one knew what was happening. But as more and more teachers stood up to sing their parts and join the others on stage, the rest of the audience really got into it.

When it was done - and done quite well - the performers earned a standing ovation.

Space Oddity in Space

File this in your #TBT drawer: it's a video from a couple of years ago. I missed it, maybe you did too.

Astronaut Chris Hadfield pulled a tour aboard the International Space Station in 2013.

He was known as being media-savvy, steadily tweeting and doing other entertaining things.

Like this little gem: performing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" in space.

He tweaked the lyrics a bit - since space travel has changed a bit since Bowie recorded the song in 1969.

The floating guitar and the floating singer really make this work.

And Chris has a pretty decent voice.
