THE PAST WEEK'S been rough on Miley Cyrus . Last Tuesday, her beloved Alaskan Klee Kai (kinda like a mini husky) Floyd ascended the rainbow bridge. Wednesday, the singer's tour went on. By Friday, her mama, Tish Cyrus , had replaced Floyd with a puppy named Moonie . Cute, but Miley wasn't having it. Through the weekend, the former Hannah Montana dedicated song after song ("My Darlin" and "Adore You") to her most recently departed dog, singing through tears, thanking fans for their support.

READY TO SPRING forward, showgoers? Get your ears engaged and your body in motion with some fine musicians, two big back-to-back radio-sponsored rock fests, the return of Philly's Center City Jazz Festival and more fabulous femmes - Miley Cyrus, Cher and Lady Gaga, too - than your dance-pop-loving heart can take without bursting.

"I'm not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl, to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts," Miley, 21, tells W magazine. So grow'd up is she, Miley has been taking off her clothes in her music vids and promo pics like there's no tomorrow.

Rihanna does hot selfies Why does Rihanna post so many - sooo many! - photos on Instagram (she has 11 million followers) showing her in various states of undress? "I think [people] think I'm drunk all the time. I think they think I am always partying, that my house is probably a party all the time with tons of people and tons of music and no clothes. I think that's what they think," Rihanna tells USA Today. Um, that was our theory. No, says R, she's not about partying or nudie exhibitionism or drunken orgies.

Why we love Patti LaBelle See, Patti LaBelle is all Philly. She says what she's thinking. Here it is, almost Grammy night, and Patti, 69, wants the world to know. She says she's no diva.

We hereby join the meme of "Is Justin Bieber the same person as Miley Cyrus ?"! It has to be true.
