People have been wondering which local salon gave Miley Cyrus the dramatic new haircut she unveiled to fans on Twitter Sunday night. The pop star, who has been staying around Washington Square for about a month with fiance Liam Hemsworth while he's shooting "Paranoia" with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman , took an Acela train to and from New York Sunday for her new skater punk haircut, which makes her oddly resemble Justin Bieber. She tweeted that she has never felt more like herself with her new hipster cut. She looks as if she should get a DJ night spinning indie rock/electro at the Barbary (951 Frankford)

Britney Spears paid a visit to the First Union Center on Monday night, and the runway show did not disappoint. The pop princess opened with a beguiling little number in sequined black, reminiscent of an Elvis jumpsuit, but showing more skin than the King would have dared.

Halfway through the collection, Spears paraded around in a hat that easily could have doubled as a dark-chocolate cake topped with strawberry frosting.

The court will reevaluate the order at a Jan. 14 hearing.

Salvation may be at hand for the Bottom Line. The legendary nightclub, which has been facing eviction from its Greenwich Village home by landlord New York University, has drawn support and big bucks from Bruce Springsteen, Lou Reed and Viacom president Mel Karmazin, the New York Daily News reports.

The satellite radio network Sirius said it would put up the back rent, soft-drink maker Snapple is reportedly interested in inking an endorsement deal with the club, and a Dec. 5 benefit concert is in the works featuring John Hiatt, Suzanne Vega and Dar Williams.

For some reason, that picture sticks in my head. The one of Britney Spears attacking a car with an umbrella. Go ahead and laugh if you want. I won't blame you. Still, the picture - it was all over the news last week - stops me. There she is, this pop princess, newly bald, dressed unglamorously in shorts and sweatshirt, rearing back with an umbrella, ready to give that car what it has coming. Supposedly, the vehicle belongs to a photographer who had been tailing her. In that photo, there is something of the spoiled child lashing out. Something of the little girl, broken.

Now we know how much that little gold statuette that had many a Hollywood type jonesin' Sunday is actually worth. About $5 million.
