Our girl Miley Cyrus spills the country trail beans to Marie Claire Magazine about hitting a bong on her 18th birthday. Says the teen superstar “I’m not perfect … I made a mistake … I’m disappointed in myself for disappointing my fans. They’re not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for.” She’s so right. LOL!

Cyrus stars with Demi Moore in Lol! a social media themed movie where the two stars are cast in the same family. Sounds fun!

In rugby football news, The Mirror UK reports, Nick Evans was “backed for an All Blacks recall after his Harlequins team started the New Year with a bang. On a weekend of shocks in the Premiership, Quins won 16-13 at leaders Northampton,while winless Leeds saw off Gloucester 15-13.” To understand more, check out Rugby World Cup 2011′s website. Rugby football is being telecast at this event live via Universal/ Comcast right here in the USA 2011. Really you want to be at the action live though. Like, tots in person. So exciting! Rugby fans are the maddest down-to-middle-earth fun to hang out with. A sporting trip of a lifetime!

In local Hollywood news, here’s what you voted from 50 nations of the world and across 50 US states. Here’s the celebrity and entertainment news that made the cut. Thanks people. For some reason I’m feeling a bit Ezraeli proud today, go figure! :)

Guess what? Dudes who poke their tongues out on the football field and do the Maori haka are creative enough to be called “game breakers” by leading sports commentators of the sporting code. Not bad! These lads pictured via Getty Images are creative and tough to evolve and break the game open at new sporting levels of play.

Writes the All Blacks Website’s Sports News Section: “Even considering personal preferences and allegiance, the makeup of the best team of the season past will have a heavy tinge of Black, reflecting a test calendar where Richie McCaw and his men won 13 of 14 tests. Rugby sites and various pundits from around the world have compiled their best team of the year.

Rugby sites and various pundits from around the world have compiled their best team of the year. Planet Rugby selected no less than eleven All Blacks in their starting XV, whilst rugby365 put seven New Zealanders in their selection. Rugbyheaven of Sydney Morning Herald in Australia selected ten All Blacks, while even Green and Gold Rugby, a notoriously pro-Australian rugby site, put eight kiwis in their run out team.

What is notable is that it is considered necessary to have multiple world class players in a team to have any hope of winning a World Cup. Not one or two players, but a host of game breakers who can change a test with a certain play.”

Looks like the World Cup is shaping up to be quite the hot sports event of the world. Believe me, rugby football is so much fun. Hollywood media conglomerate, Universal/ Comcast are gearing to broadcast and broker the Rugby World Cup sporting football coverage into the US next year. Should be hot to watch either on the telly but particular in person, at the event. Rugby culture and its supporters are crazy, wild, fun. You really have to sit in a live rugby match to feel the made love. It’s the best sporting buzz in the world. That and Super Bowl and Wimbledon finals as well as Soccer World Cup. Top sports entertainment live.

A note to all rugby football players worldwide. Americans love big toothy smiles. Everyone here puts white caps on theirs, especially Hollywood stars and sports stars to produce that winning smile for a camera’s close up. Now would be a really good time for leading cosmetic dentists in every rugby football nation to step forward as corporate sponsors perhaps. Just a suggestion mind.”

No. These two are not discussing the latest funnies on the ICanHasCheeseburger Blog! This is an official ambassador visit photo. Prince Harry shares a smile with German actress Sophia Thomalla at the charity gala ‘Ein Herz fuer Kinder’ in Berlin, Germany. Amongst chatting up hot blondes, Harry was on his first official visit to Germany where The Bernauer Strasse Wall Memorial was a place where the Prince laid a wreath on a restored section of Berlin’s former East-West border, including the Wall and the area behind it known as the ‘death strip’ where many died trying to escape back in the day before U2 sung and the wall came tumbling down.
