Carrie Underwood receives Sound Of Music hate tweets.
Country songstress and "American Idol" alum, Carrie Underwood, told Entertainment Weekly she has been receiving hate tweets about her upcoming live special "The Sound Of Music, Live!" Apparently the haters want her to know she's no Julie Andrews (who starred in the 1965 movie version), despite the fact that Andrews herself has come out in support of Underwood reprising her role of Maria. Underwood's live special is set to air on NBC on Thursday December 5. Her co-star is "True Blood's" Stephen Moyer as Captain Von Trapp.
Miley Cyrus leading Time's 2013 Person of the Year poll?
E! News reported that as of Wednesday November 27, Miley Cyrus ("Hannah Montana") was indeed leading Time Magazine's informal poll deciding the 2013 Person of the Year, with 28% of the vote. However, it seems a pair of programmers had come forward to admit they had found a way to manipulate the poll by casting multiple votes. Time is apparently aware of the attempts to fix the outcome and reportedly has measures in place so that only legit votes are counted. The results of the online poll will be announced on December 6, but it's important to note that this does not actually determine the Person of the Year, who is chosen by the editors. That person will be revealed on December 11.
