Nashville honchos finally have figured out most country music buyers are women, and they're starting to give us female artists of content - Trisha Yearwood, Mary-Chapin Carpenter and Pam Tillis, to name a few - who carry themselves with class. This is good. The obverse of the women gaining a measure of dignity, though, is that the guys are all poster boys, often of the slow-witted variety. With the exception of Everyman Garth Brooks and stolid Mark Chesnutt, the country hit parade has turned into a Hillbilly Hunk-O-Rama.

A nasty brew is bubbling in the country. Billy Ray Cyrus, responding to a suit filed against him by singer Del Reeves, said Reeves took unfair advantage of him by signing Cyrus to a contract in 1988 that would have him paying a huge chunk of what he makes to Reeves. In a suit filed in September, Reeves and his wife, Ellen, say they're entitled to 8 percent of Cyrus' cut of "the suggested retail list price of all (his) records sold" plus 15 percent of his gross earnings if Reeves got him a record deal, which he says he did. Also, Ellen Reeves is suing the "Achy Breaky" singer to enforce an "investor agreement" in which Cyrus agreed to pay her 2.5 percent of gross earnings in his first year in return for $2,200 she advanced him for demo tapes.

Miley Cyrus has just left the dentist's office. The verdict: The 13-year-old needs braces. A very Hollywood compromise is reached: Attaching the buttresses to the inside of her teeth. The thing is, Cyrus has a lot of face time as the title character in the Disney Channel's latest kid sensation, Hannah Montana. The March debut drew 5.4 million viewers, the most ever for an original series on the channel. Last month, it was the third-highest rated show on television among tween girls (9-14 year olds)

Thousands of Americans will go to bed tomorrow night without their Hannah Montana. Tickets for the highly anticipated 3-D concert film Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, which opens tomorrow, are almost as hard to come by as actual concert tickets were for the 2007 sold-out tour of the then-14-year-old Miley Ray Cyrus. "Over a thousand showtimes are already sold out across the country," said Harry Medved of the online ticket agency Fandango. He said the film has been a top seller since tickets became available on Dec. 1, and is the best-selling concert film in Fandango's seven-year history.

IT WAS a very exciting week for the Internet, space exploration and Al Roker . The European Space Agency's Philae landed on a comet - think about that for a sec - and reality TV entity Kim Kardashian was photographed in revealing poses for Paper magazine, resulting in memes galore. And the "Today" show weatherman was offering up weather info for 34 hours straight. The biggest news to emerge this week, in our esteemed estimation, had little fanfare comparatively: Matt Damon will be Jason Bourne once more for a film to be released in 2016.

Song-of-the-summer seekers will find many gone-viral candidates in this first summer in which YouTube clicks count in sending a song toward the top of the charts. Among them: the badly behaving Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop," and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," whose "unrated" video featuring topless female models has been banned by YouTube. (A cleaned-up version has still managed to garner more than 86 million hits.) The season's pop music playlist before you stretches to about 90 minutes - longer than a mix CD because, really, who listens to CDs anymore?
